Maybe the most important factor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Generally this is associated with downloading a software that includes spyware, by not having browser security options high enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by declining to install security sections in a timely manner.
Action 1. Revise the definitions of your anti virus and operate a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Note that some viruses need additional measures until they can be removed; normally a websearch will find specific directions or a special removal tool. If you can’t find a solution, use the Bc forums to request help.
Step 2. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the sluggishness is sudden, the issue may rest there. Test this by entirely removing it. A wise user will generally perform a internet search about the program before downloading it because in most instances, any potential problem with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Action three. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your computer’s operation, and these are throughout the Internet. A very recent research indicated that one out-of every 20 executable files on Web sites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains include at least one bit of spyware waiting for sufferers.
Experienced users will consistently operate 2 or 3 of these applications, because each company has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own set. (A list of quite great, free anti-spyware applications is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
Stage 4. Evaluation apps that self-start on startup. You computer can be a arena for your consideration. Many programs, for example, install a quick-start feature that enables them to be exposed instantly; other programs will contain an automatic update feature that demands them to be operating in the background. Each of these decreases your introduction Windows and each requires a little bit of resources while your computer is running.
Remember that Bc maintains a quite comprehensive Startup Database that contains info about whether the questioned item is required, optional, or not needed, if you’re unsure about what may be safely removed.
At-the same time, remember that those icons in your Background also take a modest number of boot time to put themselves.
Absence of Maintenance
Stage 5. Delete unused applications and move old files to a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files which you have previously opened, applications you have not used in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are a few types of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for advanced level users: some professionals would include the additional maintenance step of cleaning the Windows registry, and you’ll find several applications to help try this. For the most part, registry maintenance will not make a critical difference, and unless you’re quite comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make backups of-the registry, you can do significant damage by creating registry modifications, so this measure is not contained
Action 6. Have it repair 0x281c.
Action 7. Defragment your computer. Windows will put new documents in any available open space; defragging will place related sections of files closer together so your read arm has less travelling around the hard drive to do, saving wear-and tear while boosting up plans.
Hopefully, since you have have concluded, you will find a marked enhancement in computer performance.
