I am submitting a summary listing of basic steps you can take to resolve this problem, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care, because many readers come up with their computer reacting slowly.
Maybe the most important factor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Update the definitions of your anti-virus and operate a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Notice that some viruses need extra steps until they may be removed; usually a websearch will find specific instructions or a particular removal tool. If you fail to find a solution, use the BC forums to obtain help.
Step 2. If the slowness is unanticipated, and you have recently downloaded an application, the issue may rest there. Test this by totally eliminating it. A user will typically perform a internet search about the program before installing because in most cases, any potential problem with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Step 3. Adware and Spyware can drastically impact your personal computer’s performance, and these are throughout the World wide web. A very recent research indicated that one out-of every 20 executable files on Websites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains feature at least one bit of spyware waiting for sufferers.
Revise the definitions of your anti spyware applications and scan your hard drives in Safe Mode. Experienced customers will often run several 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 really great, free antispyware programs is supplied by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing 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 great Help files that explain how they operate too as the special characteristics of each.
Step 4. Evaluation programs that self-launch on startup. You computer may become a arena for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a quick-launch feature that allows them to be exposed promptly; other programs will include an automated 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 sources while your personal computer is running.
The simplest way to examine and than to manage startups is to utilize one of the numerous small utilities available (see the Bc list of free apps). If you are unsure about what may be safely deleted, remember that Bc maintains a quite comprehensive Startup Database that includes information about whether the item is required, discretionary, or not needed.
At-the same time, remember that those symbols on your own Desktop also take a modest number of boot time to set themselves.
Absence of Care
Stage 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused programs and move old files to a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files that you have opened, applications you haven’t found in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are some types of files you can delete.
(Note for higher level users: some specialists would include the added care stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and there are several programs to help try this. For the most part, so this measure is not contained, you can do serious harm by making registry changes, registry maintenance won’t make a major difference, and unless you’re really comfortable with Windows, and carefully make copies of the registry
Stage 6. Have it repair 0x0000077B.
Stage 7. Defragment your personal computer.
Hopefully, since you have have concluded, you’ll find a noticeable improvement in pc performance.
