Because several readers reveal their computer responding slowly, I’m submitting a summary record of general things you can do to resolve the Wood Windows Repairissue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance.
Maybe the greatest contributor to a badly performing computer is malware. Generally this is related to downloading an application that contains spyware, by not having browser security settings large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security patches regularly.
Step 1. Revise the definitions of your antivirus and operate a complete scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Notice that some viruses require extra steps until they may be removed; generally a websearch will locate specific directions or a particular removal tool. If you cannot find a solution, use the BC forums to request assistance.
Step 2. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the slowness is surprising, the issue may dwell there. Check this by fully eliminating it. A wise user will generally perform a web search about the application before getting because in most cases, any possible problem with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Action 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically impact your computer’s performance, and these are around the Net. A very recent study indicated that one out-of every 20 executable files on Web sites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains include at least one piece of spyware waiting for victims.
Seasoned customers will regularly run two or three of the applications, because each company has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own set. (A listing of very good, free anti-spyware programs is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
For additional reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have really great Help files that describe how they work also as the special characteristics of each.
Stage 4. Evaluation applications that self-launch on startup. You computer may be a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a fast-start feature that permits them to be opened immediately; other programs may contain an automatic update feature that requires them to be operating in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each needs a little bit of resources while your computer is running.
In case you are unsure about what can be safely deleted, remember that BC maintains a very complete Startup Database that contains info about whether the questioned item is required, discretionary, or unnecessary.
At-the same time, remember that those symbols in your Background also take a small number of trunk time to set themselves.
Absence of Care
Step 5. Delete unused programs and move old files to your CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files that you have opened, applications you haven’t found in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are some types of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Clean-up to remove temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for advanced level users: some specialists would include the added maintenance step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of applications to assist do this. For the most part, so this step is not contained, you may do significant harm by creating registry modifications, registry maintenance won’t make a critical difference, and unless you’re quite comfy with Windows, and carefully make copies of-the registry
Action 6. Have it mend Wood Windows Repair.
