I’m publishing a summary listing of general things you can do to solve this problem, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient maintenance, because several readers write about their computer responding slowly.
Perhaps the greatest contributor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Revise the explanations of your antivirus and run a full scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Notice that some infections need additional measures until they could be removed; ordinarily a internet search will find specific instructions or a particular removal tool. If you cannot find a solution, use the Bc forums to obtain help.
Step 2. You’ve recently saved an application, and if the slowness is abrupt, the issue may reside there. Test this by entirely removing it. A smart user will usually perform a web search about the program before downloading it because in most cases, any possible difficulty with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Step 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your computer’s operation, and these are all over the Net. A very recent research showed that one out-of every 20 executable files on Websites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains comprise at least one piece of spyware waiting for victims.
Update the explanations of your anti-spyware applications and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Experienced customers will routinely run two or three of these applications, because each business has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A record of quite great, free antispyware applications is provided by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
Stage 4. Review apps that self-start on startup. You computer may become a arena for your attention. Many programs, for instance, install a rapid-launch feature that enables them to be opened fast; 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 requires a small bit of assets while your computer is running.
If, for instance, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you can use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to show off any you usually do not need. Remember that Bc maintains a very comprehensive Startup Database that includes information about whether the questioned item is needed, optional, or unnecessary, in case you are uncertain about what could be safely removed.
At-the same time, remember that all those symbols on your Desktop also take a small number of boot time to put themselves.
Lack of Care
Step 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Stage 7). Delete unused programs and move old files into a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files that you have opened, applications you have not found 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 specialists would include the additional care stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find several programs to assist try this. For the most part, so this step is not included, you may do significant damage by creating registry changes, registry care will not make a vital difference, and unless you are very comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make copies of the registry
Stage 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it repair Win32k Sys Blue Screen.
Action 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have ended, you’ll find a noticeable enhancement in computer operation.
