Because several readers write about their computer reacting slowly, I’m submitting a summary record of basic things you can do to solve the Urlopen Error 10061problem, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient maintenance.
Maybe the greatest factor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Step 1. Update the explanations of your anti-virus and run a full scan of your drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Note that some viruses need additional measures until they can be removed; generally a internet search will find specific instructions or a particular removal tool. If you can’t find a answer, use the Bc forums to request support.
Step 2. If the sluggishness is unexpected, and you’ve recently saved an application, the problem may live there. Check this by completely eliminating it. A smart user will usually perform a web search about the program before installing because in most cases, any possible difficulty with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Step 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 customers will frequently operate several of these applications, because each company has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own established. (A list of really great, free antispyware programs is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
Stage 4. Evaluation applications that self-start on startup. You computer can become a arena for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a fast-start feature which enables them to be exposed rapidly; other programs may include an automatic update feature that requires them to be running in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each needs a little bit of assets while your computer is running.
The easiest approach to review and than to manage startups will be to utilize one of the numerous small utilities available (see the BC list of free apps). Remember that Bc maintains a really comprehensive Startup Database that includes information about whether the item is needed, optional, or unnecessary, if you are unsure about what may be safely deleted.
At the same time, remember that all those icons on your own Desktop also take a modest amount of boot time to place themselves.
Absence of Upkeep
Stage 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Step 7). Delete unused applications and transfer old files to your CD. Unplayed games, tons of family pictures, zipped files that you have previously opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are some examples of files you can delete.
(Note for sophisticated users: some experts would include the added upkeep step of cleaning the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of programs to assist try this. For the most part, registry care won’t make a major difference, and unless you are very comfortable with Windows, and carefully make backups of-the registry, you may do serious damage by creating registry changes, so this measure isn’t included
Stage 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it mend Urlopen Error 10061.
Action 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, since you have have ended, you will see a noticeable enhancement in pc operation.
