Perhaps the most important factor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Revise the definitions of your anti virus and operate a complete scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Note that some viruses need extra measures before they may be removed; generally a web search will find specific instructions or a particular removal tool. If you can’t find a answer, use the Bc forums to request help.
Step 2. If the slowness is unexpected, and you’ve recently downloaded an application, the issue might rest there. Test this by completely eliminating it.

(A listing of quite great, free antispyware programs is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
For further reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have quite great Help documents that describe how they function also as the unique attributes of each.
Stage 4. Review applications that self-launching on startup. You computer can be a arena for your interest. Many programs, for example, install a fast-launch feature that permits them to be opened swiftly; other programs will contain an automated update feature that demands them to be running in the background. Each of these slows down your introduction Windows and each requires a small bit of sources while your personal computer is running.
You may use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to turn off any you do not want, if, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy.

(Note for advanced users: some professionals would contain the added upkeep stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find several applications to help do this. For the most part, registry maintenance will not make a major difference, and unless you’re really comfy with Windows, and carefully make copies of-the registry, you may do severe damage by creating registry changes, so this step is not included
Action 6. Have it repair Xcopy Bootmgr C: Access Denied.
