Because many readers come up with their computer responding slowly, I’m posting a summary listing of basic steps you can take to solve the The servers 1 and 3 both claim to be an NT Domain Controller forissue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance.
Maybe the greatest contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Generally this is associated with downloading a software that contains spyware, by not having browser security settings large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by declining to install security sections regularly.
Step 1. Update the definitions of your anti virus and run a complete scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Note that some infections require extra measures before they could be removed; generally a internet search will find specific instructions or a special removal tool. If you cannot find a solution, use the BC forums to request assistance.
2. If the sluggishness is abrupt, and you have recently downloaded an application, the problem might live there. Test this by entirely removing it. A sensible user will normally perform a internet search about the program before installing because in most instances, any possible difficulty with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Action three. Adware and Spyware can radically impact your computer’s functionality, and these are all over the Web. A very recent research showed that one out of every 20 executable files on Websites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains feature at least one bit of spyware waiting for sufferers.
Seasoned customers will regularly operate several of the applications, because each company has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own established. (A set of quite good, free antispyware programs is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
Stage 4. Review applications that self-start on startup. You computer may be a arena for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a fast-start feature which permits them to be opened fast; other programs will comprise 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 requires a small bit of sources while your personal computer is running.
Remember that Bc maintains a quite complete Startup Database that includes information about whether the item is required, elective, or unnecessary, if you’re unsure about what may be safely removed.
At the same time, remember that those symbols on your Background also take a small number of boot time to place themselves.
Lack of Care
Stage 5. Delete unused applications and exchange old files to a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files that you have previously opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for that old printer you put away last year—these are some types of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for higher level users: some specialists would include the added upkeep stage of cleaning the Windows registry, and there are plenty of apps to assist try this. For the most part, registry maintenance will not make a significant difference, and unless you’re very comfortable with Windows, and carefully make backups of-the registry, you can do severe harm by creating registry modifications, so this step is not included
Stage 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it fix The servers 1 and 3 both claim to be an NT Domain Controller for.
Action 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have finished, you’ll find a marked enhancement in computer operation.
