Because many readers reveal their computer responding slowly, I am posting a summary listing of basic steps you can take to solve the 0x0070e6cdissue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care.
Perhaps the most important contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Often this is associated with downloading an application that includes spyware, by not having browser security settings large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by declining to install security sections in a timely manner.
Action 1. Update the explanations of your anti-virus and run a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Notice that some infections require extra steps until they can be removed; typically a websearch will find specific directions or a special removal tool. Use the BC forums to request support, if you fail to find a solution.
Step 2. You have recently downloaded an application, and if the sluggishness is sudden, the issue might dwell there. Check this by completely eliminating it. A user will usually perform a web search about the program before downloading it because in most cases, any possible trouble with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Stage three. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your computer’s performance, and these are all over the World wide web.
Seasoned users will regularly run two or three of the programs, because each business has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A list of very good, free anti spyware programs is supplied by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
Step 4. Review apps that self-launch on startup. You computer may become a arena for your consideration. Many programs, for instance, install a rapid-launch feature that allows them to be opened rapidly; other programs may include 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 needs a little bit of resources while your computer is running.
Remember that BC maintains a very complete Startup Database that includes information about whether the item is required, discretionary, or not needed, if you’re uncertain about what could be safely deleted.
At-the same time, remember that all those symbols on your Background also take a small number of boot time to put themselves.
Lack of Upkeep
Step 5. Delete unused programs and exchange old files to a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files that you have previously opened, applications you have not used in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are a few examples 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 users: some specialists would contain the added upkeep stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find several applications to help do that. For the most part, so this step is not contained, you may do serious harm by making registry changes, registry care won’t make a vital difference, and unless you’re very comfy with Windows, and cautiously make copies of-the registry
Action 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it repair 0x0070e6cd.
Step 7. Defragment your computer. Windows will set new documents in any available open space; defragging will set related segments of files closer together therefore your read arm has less travelling around the hdd to do, saving wear-and tear while racing up applications.
Hopefully, since you have have finished, you’ll see a noticeable enhancement in pc operation.
