Because several readers write about their computer responding slowly, I’m publishing a summary listing of general steps you can take to solve the Xp Liveupdate Errorproblem, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care.
Perhaps the most important contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Often this is related to downloading a software that contains spyware, by not having browser security settings high enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by declining to install security patches in a timely manner.
Step 1. Update the explanations of your anti-virus and run a full scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Note that some infections require extra measures before they can be removed; typically a web search will find specific instructions or a particular removal tool. If you fail to find a solution, use the BC forums to request help.
Step 2. You’ve recently saved an application, and if the slowness is unexpected, the issue may dwell there. Test this by entirely eliminating it. A smart user will typically perform a websearch about the application before getting because in most cases, any potential problem with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Stage 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your computer’s operation, and these are all over the Internet.
Seasoned users will consistently run two or three of the applications, because each business has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A set of very great, 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 can be a arena for your interest. Many programs, for example, install a rapid-start feature which allows them to be opened instantly; other programs will comprise an automated 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 small bit of sources while your personal computer is running.
The simplest way to review and than to handle start ups is to use one of the numerous small resources available (see the Bc list of free applications). If you’re unsure about what could be safely removed, remember that Bc maintains a really comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is needed, discretionary, or not needed.
At the same time, remember that all those icons in your Desktop also take a modest number of boot time to set themselves.
Lack of Maintenance
Stage 5. Delete unused programs and move old files to your CD. Unplayed games, tons of family pictures, zipped files which you have already opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are some examples of files you can delete.
(Note for advanced users: some experts would contain the added care stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you’ll find several apps to help do this. For the most part, so this step isn’t contained, you can do significant harm by making registry changes, registry maintenance will not make a critical difference, and unless you’re quite comfortable with Windows, and carefully make backups of-the registry
Step 6. Have it mend Xp Liveupdate Error.
Action 7. Defragment your personal computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have concluded, you’ll see a marked improvement in computer performance.
