Perhaps the greatest factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Update the definitions of your antivirus and run a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Notice that some viruses need additional steps until they can be removed; typically a web search will locate specific directions or a particular removal tool. Use the BC forums to request support, if you can’t find a solution.
Step 2. You’ve recently saved an application, and if the slowness is sudden, the issue may dwell there. Test this by totally eliminating it. A smart user will typically perform a internet search about the application before downloading it because in most instances, any potential trouble with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Stage 3. Adware and Spyware can radically impact your computer’s performance, and these are around the World wide web.
Seasoned customers will often run several of these applications, because each company has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A listing of very good, free anti-spyware applications is given by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
Stage 4. Review programs that self-launch on startup. You computer may be a battleground for your consideration. Many programs, for example, install a quick-start feature that allows them to be exposed promptly; other programs will contain 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 small bit of resources while your personal computer is running.
If, for instance, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you can use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to turn off any you don’t need. In case you are unsure about what may be safely removed, remember that BC maintains a quite comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is needed, elective, or unnecessary.
At the same time, remember that those icons on your Background also take a small number of boot time to put themselves.
Lack of Care
Step 5. Cleanup your hard drive (preparation for Step 7). Delete unused programs and exchange old files to a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files which you have opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are some types of files you can delete.
(Note for high level users: some experts would contain the added care step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you’ll find several applications to assist do that. For the most part, registry care won’t make a major difference, and unless you are very comfy with Windows, and cautiously make copies of-the registry, you can do serious harm by creating registry modifications, so this measure isn’t contained
Step 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it mend Windows 7 Error Keeps Restarting After Login.
Step 7. Defragment your computer. Windows tends to set new files in any available open space; defragging will place affiliated sections of files closer together therefore your read arm has less travelling around the hdd to do, saving wear-and tear while speeding up plans.
Hopefully, since you have have ended, you’ll see a marked improvement in computer functionality.
