I’m posting a summary record of general steps you can take to solve this problem, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance, because several readers write about their computer responding slowly.
Perhaps the most important factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Revise the explanations of your antivirus and operate a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Note that some viruses require extra steps until they can be removed; normally a web search will find specific instructions or a special removal tool. Use the Bc forums to request help, if you can’t find a answer.
Step 2. If the sluggishness is surprising, and you’ve recently saved an application, the problem may live there. Check this by entirely eliminating it. A sensible user will usually perform a internet search about the program before installing because in most instances, any potential problem with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Step three. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your computer’s performance, and these are throughout the Internet.
Experienced users will routinely run several of these programs, because each business has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own set. (A set of very good, free anti-spyware programs is supplied by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
Step 4. Evaluation applications that self-start on startup. You pc may be a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for instance, install a quick-start feature which enables them to be exposed immediately; other programs may contain an automatic update feature that demands them to be working in the background. Each of these decreases your launching Windows and each needs a small bit of resources while your computer is running.
Remember that Bc maintains a really comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the inquired item is required, elective, or not needed, if you’re unsure about what may be safely removed.
At the same time, remember that all those icons in your Background also take a modest amount of boot time to put themselves.
Absence of Care
Step 5. Cleanup your hard drive (preparation for Stage 7). Delete unused programs and transfer old files into a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files that you have already opened, applications you have not used in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are a few examples of files you can delete.
(Note for sophisticated users: some specialists would comprise the added maintenance stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and there are plenty of applications to assist do that. For the most part, registry care won’t make a major difference, and unless you’re really comfortable with Windows, and carefully make copies of the registry, you may do significant damage by making registry changes, so this measure isn’t contained
Step 6. Have it fix Scrip Runtime Error Properyty Not Found.
Step 7. Defragment your computer. Windows will set new documents in any available open space; defragging will place affiliated sections of files closer together so your read arm has less travelling around the hdd to do, saving wear-and tear while racing up applications.
Hopefully, now that you have have finished, you’ll find a marked enhancement in computer functionality.
