I am submitting a summary record of basic things you can do to resolve this issue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of care, because many readers reveal their computer reacting slowly.
Perhaps the most important factor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Revise the explanations of your anti virus and run a complete scan of your drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Note that some viruses require additional steps until they may be removed; ordinarily a web search will find specific directions or a particular removal tool. If you cannot find a solution, use the BC forums to obtain help.
Step Two. You’ve recently saved an application, and if the slowness is unexpected, the problem might rest there. Check this by totally eliminating it. A user will generally perform a websearch about the program before downloading it because in most instances, any possible problem with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Stage 3. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your computer’s functionality, and these are around the World wide web. A very recent research indicated that one out-of every 20 executable files on Web sites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains contain at least one piece of spyware waiting for sufferers.
Update the explanations of your antispyware applications and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Experienced customers will frequently operate several of these programs, because each business has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A set of very good, free anti spyware 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 really great Help files that explain how they operate too as the unique features of each.
Step 4. Evaluation applications that self-launching on startup. You pc can become a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for instance, install a rapid-launch feature which enables them to be exposed quickly; other programs will include an automated update feature that requires them to be operating in the background. Each of these decreases your launch Windows and each requires a little bit of assets while your computer is running.
If, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you can use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to turn off any you do not need. If you are uncertain about what can be safely deleted, remember that Bc maintains a quite complete Startup Database that includes info about whether the inquired item is needed, optional, or not needed.
At-the same time, remember that all those symbols in your Background also take a modest amount of boot time to set themselves.
Absence of Maintenance
Step 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused programs and transfer old files to a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files that you have already opened, applications you have not used in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are some examples of files you can delete.
(Note for sophisticated users: some professionals would comprise the added upkeep stage of cleaning the Windows registry, and there are plenty of programs to assist do this. For the most part, so this step isn’t included, you can do significant harm by making registry modifications, registry maintenance won’t make a critical difference, and unless you’re quite comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make backups of the registry
Action 6. Have it repair 0x0184fee8.
Action 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have concluded, you’ll see a noticeable improvement in computer functionality.
