Because several readers write about their computer reacting slowly, I’m publishing a summary listing of general things you can do to solve the The Sound Doesnt Work After Formatissue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of care.
Perhaps the most important factor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Often this is related to downloading an application that includes spyware, by not having browser security options large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security patches regularly.
Action 1. Update the definitions of your antivirus and run a full scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Note that some infections require additional measures until they can be removed; usually a internet search will find specific directions or a particular removal tool. If you can’t find a answer, use the BC forums to obtain support.
2. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the sluggishness is abrupt, the problem might live there. Test this by fully eliminating it. A user will normally perform a websearch about the program before installing because in most cases, any possible trouble with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Step three. Adware and Spyware can drastically impact your computer’s functionality, and these are throughout the World wide web.
Experienced users will often operate several of the applications, because each company has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own set. (A list of very good, free anti spyware programs is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
For additional reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have really good Help documents that clarify how they operate as well as the special characteristics of each.
Step 4. Review applications that self-launch on startup. You pc can be a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a rapid-start feature that allows them to be exposed immediately; other programs will include an automated update feature that demands them to be operating in the background. Each of these decreases your introduction Windows and each requires a small bit of sources while your computer is running.
The easiest approach to review and than to manage start ups would be to use one of the many small utilities available (see the BC list of free apps). If you are uncertain about what may be safely deleted, remember that BC maintains a quite complete Startup Database that contains information about whether the inquired item is needed, elective, or unnecessary.
At the same time, remember that those symbols on your own Background also take a small number of trunk time to place themselves.
Absence of Upkeep
Step 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused programs and transfer old files to a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family pictures, zipped files that you have previously opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for the old printer you put away last year—these are a few types of files you can delete.
(Note for advanced level users: some experts would include the additional upkeep stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find several programs to help do this. For the most part, registry care won’t make a vital difference, and unless you are very comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make copies of-the registry, you may do serious harm by making registry changes, so this step isn’t included
Action 6. Have it repair The Sound Doesnt Work After Format.
Stage 7. Defragment your pc.
Hopefully, since you have have concluded, you will see a marked improvement in computer functionality.
