Because many readers reveal their computer responding slowly, I’m submitting a summary record of general things you can do to solve the Windows Stop 0x00000019issue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient maintenance.
Maybe the most important contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Revise the definitions of your anti-virus and operate a full scan of your drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Note that some infections need additional steps until they could be removed; typically a internet search will find specific directions or a special removal tool. If you cannot find a solution, use the BC forums to request support.
Step Two. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the sluggishness is unanticipated, the issue may live there. Check this by completely eliminating it. A user will usually perform a internet search about the program before getting because in most instances, any potential issue with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Step three. Adware and Spyware can dramatically impact your computer’s performance, and these are throughout the Web. A very recent study showed that one out-of every 20 executable files on Web sites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains contain at least one piece of spyware waiting for victims.
Seasoned customers will consistently run 2 or 3 of the applications, because each business has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A listing of quite great, free anti spyware applications is supplied by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
For further reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have really good Help documents that describe how they operate as well as the special characteristics of each.
Step 4. Review apps that self-start on startup. You computer can become a battleground for your interest. Many programs, for example, install a quick-launch feature that allows them to be opened immediately; other programs will include an automatic update feature that demands them to be running in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each requires a little bit of assets while your personal computer is running.
The simplest way to examine and than to handle start ups is to use one of the numerous small resources available (see the BC list of free programs). You may use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to show off any you don’t need, if, for instance, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. Remember that BC maintains a very comprehensive Startup Database that includes info about whether the questioned item is required, optional, or unnecessary, if you are unsure about what could be safely deleted.
At the same time, remember that all those icons in your Background also take a small amount of trunk time to put themselves.
Absence of Care
Step 5. Cleanup your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused applications and transfer old files into a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files that you have already opened, applications you haven’t found in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are a few types of files you can delete.
(Note for higher level users: some experts would include the added care stage of cleaning the Windows registry, and you will find several applications to help do that. For the most part, so this measure isn’t contained, you can do severe harm by creating registry modifications, registry maintenance will not make a major difference, and unless you are really comfortable with Windows, and carefully make copies of the registry
Step 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it mend Windows Stop 0x00000019.
Action 7. Defragment your computer. Windows will set new documents in any available open space; defragging will set associated segments of files closer together so your read arm has less travelling around the hard drive to do, saving wear and tear while boosting up programs.
Hopefully, now that you have have finished, you’ll find a noticeable improvement in pc operation.
