Because several readers come up with their computer responding slowly, I am publishing a summary listing of general things you can do to solve the 0x80041050issue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of care.
Maybe the greatest factor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Revise the explanations of your anti-virus and run a full scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Note that some viruses need extra steps before they can be removed; normally a websearch will find specific directions or a special removal tool. Use the BC forums to obtain help, if you can’t find a answer.
Step 2. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the slowness is sudden, the problem might dwell there. Check this by totally eliminating it. A user will typically perform a websearch about the application before installing because in most instances, any possible difficulty with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Step 3. Adware and Spyware can radically impact your computer’s operation, and these are all over the Net.
Revise the explanations of your anti-spyware programs and scan your hard drives in Safe Mode. Experienced customers will consistently run two or three of these programs, because each business has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A record of quite great, free antispyware applications is supplied by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
Step 4. Review programs that self-launch on startup. You computer can be a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for instance, install a quick-launch feature which permits them to be exposed immediately; other programs will 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 requires a little bit of sources while your personal computer is running.
You may use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to show off any you do not want, if, for example, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. Remember that Bc maintains a really comprehensive Startup Database that includes information about whether the item is required, optional, or unnecessary, if you are uncertain about what can be safely removed.
At the same time, remember that those symbols in your Desktop also take a modest amount of trunk time to place themselves.
Lack of Care
Step 5. Cleanup your hard drive (preparation for Step 7). Delete unused programs and exchange old files to your CD. Unplayed games, tons of family pictures, zipped files that you have already opened, applications you have not used in two years, software for that 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 higher level users: some professionals would include the added maintenance step of cleaning the Windows registry, and you’ll find several apps to help do that. For the most part, so this step isn’t included, you may do serious damage by making registry changes, registry care won’t make a vital difference, and unless you’re really comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make backups of the registry
Stage 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it fix 0x80041050.
Stage 7. Defragment your personal computer. Windows will put new files in any available open space; defragging will place associated sections of files closer together so your read arm has less going around the hdd to do, saving wear and tear while speeding up applications.
Hopefully, now that you have have concluded, you’ll see a noticeable improvement in pc performance.
