Because several readers write about their computer responding slowly, I am submitting a summary record of general things you can do to solve the Registry Cleanerxp.comissue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance.
Possibly the greatest contributor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Step 1. Update the definitions of your anti virus and operate a complete scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Notice that some viruses need extra measures before they can be removed; usually a websearch will find specific instructions or a particular removal tool. If you cannot find a answer, use the Bc forums to request help.
Step 2. If the sluggishness is unanticipated, and you have recently saved an application, the issue may reside there. Check this by entirely removing it. A wise user will typically perform a web search about the application before downloading it because in most cases, any potential problem with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Stage 3. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your computer’s performance, and these are all over the Net.
Experienced users will routinely run two or three of these programs, because each company has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own set. (A listing of very great, free anti spyware programs is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next step.
Step 4. Review apps that self-launch on startup. You computer can be a battleground for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a quick-start feature which enables them to be opened swiftly; other programs may contain an automated update feature that requires them to be operating in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each requires a little bit of sources while your computer is running.
If, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you can use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to show off any you do not need. Remember that BC maintains a very comprehensive Startup Database that includes information about whether the item is needed, optional, or not needed, if you are unsure about what could be safely deleted.
At the same time, remember that those icons on your own Background also take a small number of boot time to set themselves.
Absence of Maintenance
Step 5. Delete unused applications and exchange old files to a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files which you have opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are a few types of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for advanced level users: some professionals would include the additional care stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of applications to help do this. For the most part, registry maintenance won’t make a major difference, and unless you’re quite comfortable with Windows, and carefully make backups of-the registry, you may do severe damage by creating registry changes, so this step isn’t included
Step 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it mend Registry Cleanerxp.com.
Step 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have finished, you’ll see a marked improvement in computer functionality.
