Because several readers reveal their computer reacting slowly, I’m posting a summary listing of general things you can do to solve the Windows Vista Media Player Dieeproblem, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance.
Maybe the most important contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Revise the explanations of your anti virus and run a full scan of your drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Notice that some infections need additional measures before they may be removed; normally a web search will find specific directions or a special removal tool. Use the BC forums to obtain support, if you cannot find a solution.
2. If the sluggishness is sudden, and you’ve recently downloaded an application, the issue may live there. Test this by totally removing it. A user will usually perform a websearch about the program before getting because in most cases, any potential problem with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Action 3. Adware and Spyware can drastically effect your personal computer’s operation, and these are all over the World wide web.
Seasoned customers will often run 2 or 3 of these applications, because each business has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A list of really good, free anti-spyware applications is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
For further reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have very good Help documents that describe how they work too as the special characteristics of each.
Stage 4. Review applications that self-start on startup. You pc may be a battleground for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-start feature which enables them to be opened fast; other programs may include an automatic update feature that demands them to be working in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each requires a small bit of resources while your computer is running.
The easiest approach to examine and than to handle start-ups would be to utilize one of the many small resources available (see the Bc list of free applications). If you are uncertain about what could be safely removed, remember that Bc maintains a very complete Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is needed, optional, or unnecessary.
At the same time, remember that all those symbols on your own Desktop also take a modest amount of trunk time to place themselves.
Lack of Maintenance
Stage 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused applications and exchange old files into a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files that you have previously opened, applications you haven’t found in two years, software for that old printer you put away last year—these are a few types of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to remove temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for sophisticated users: some specialists would contain the additional upkeep stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you’ll find plenty of programs to help try this. For the most part, registry maintenance will not make a significant difference, and unless you’re really comfy with Windows, and carefully make copies of-the registry, you can do serious damage by making registry changes, so this measure is not included
Step 6. Have it fix Windows Vista Media Player Diee.
Step 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, since you have have concluded, you’ll see a marked enhancement in pc functionality.
