I am publishing a summary listing of basic steps you can take to resolve this issue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance, because many readers come up with their computer responding slowly.
Possibly the most important factor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Usually this is related to 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 in a timely manner.
Step 1. Revise the explanations of your antivirus and run a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Notice that some infections require extra steps before they could be removed; usually a websearch will find specific instructions or a particular removal tool. If you cannot find a solution, use the BC forums to request support.
2. If the slowness is sudden, and you have recently saved an application, the problem may dwell there. Check this by fully removing it. A sensible user will typically perform a internet search about the application before installing because in most instances, any potential difficulty with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Stage 3. Adware and Spyware can drastically impact your personal computer’s performance, and these are around the Web.
Revise the definitions of your anti-spyware programs and scan your hard drives in Safe Mode. Experienced users will regularly operate two or three of the applications, because each company has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own established. (A list of quite good, free anti spyware applications is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
For additional reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have very great Help files that clarify how they work too as the special attributes of each.
Stage 4. Review applications that self-launching on startup. You computer may be a arena for your interest. Many programs, for example, install a rapid-launch feature that allows them to be exposed rapidly; other programs will include an automated update feature that demands them to be working in the background. Each of these decreases your launch Windows and each needs a little bit of assets while your personal computer is running.
Remember that Bc maintains a really comprehensive Startup Database that contains info about whether the item is required, discretionary, or unnecessary, if you’re unsure about what could be safely removed.
At-the same time, remember that those symbols in your Desktop also take a small amount of trunk time to set themselves.
Lack of Care
Stage 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Stage 7). Delete unused applications and transfer old files into a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files which you have opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for the old printer you put away last year—these are some examples of files you can delete.
(Note for higher level users: some experts would include the added upkeep step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of applications to help do this. For the most part, so this step is not contained, you may do significant damage by creating registry modifications, registry care will not make a significant difference, and unless you’re quite comfortable with Windows, and carefully make copies of the registry
Step 6. Have it fix Unknown Mailer Error 255.
Step 7. Defragment your personal computer.
Hopefully, since you have have concluded, you’ll see a noticeable enhancement in computer operation.
