Because many readers write about their computer reacting slowly, I am posting a summary listing of basic things you can do to resolve the Runtime 48 Errorissue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance.
Possibly the greatest factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Revise the explanations of your anti-virus and run a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Note that some infections need additional steps until they could be removed; ordinarily a websearch will locate specific directions or a special removal tool. Use the BC forums to request support, if you fail to find a answer.
2. You have recently saved an application, and if the sluggishness is abrupt, the issue might reside there. Test this by completely eliminating it. A user will generally perform a web search about the program before installing because in most instances, any possible issue with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Step 3. Adware and Spyware can radically impact your computer’s operation, and these are throughout the Internet.
Experienced users will consistently operate two or three of these applications, because each business has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own set. (A record of quite great, free anti-spyware applications is given by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
For additional reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have very great Help files that describe how they work also as the special attributes of each.
Step 4. Review apps that self-launch on startup. You pc can become a arena for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a rapid-launch feature that enables them to be exposed rapidly; other programs will include an automatic update feature that requires them to be operating in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each needs a small bit of sources while your computer is running.
You can use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to turn off any you don’t need, if, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. In case you are uncertain about what may be safely removed, remember that BC maintains a quite comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the inquired item is required, elective, or not needed.
At the same time, remember that all those icons in your Background also take a modest number of boot time to set themselves.
Absence of Care
Step 5. Delete unused applications and transfer old files to your CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files that you have opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for the old printer you put away last year—these are some types of files you can delete.
(Note for high level users: some professionals would include the additional care stage of cleaning the Windows registry, and there are plenty of programs to assist do this. For the most part, registry maintenance won’t make a major difference, and unless you are really comfy with Windows, and carefully make backups of the registry, you can do significant harm by creating registry modifications, so this measure is not included
Step 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it fix Runtime 48 Error.
Action 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, since you have have concluded, you will find a marked improvement in computer operation.
