Possibly the greatest factor to a badly performing computer is malware. Usually this is associated with downloading a software that contains spyware, by not having browser security settings high enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by declining to install security areas in a timely manner.
Stage 1. Update the definitions of your anti-virus and run a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Note that some viruses need additional measures before they may be removed; generally a web search will locate specific instructions or a particular removal tool. Use the Bc forums to request support, if you cannot find a solution.
Step Two. If the slowness is sudden, and you have recently downloaded an application, the problem may reside there. Test this by completely eliminating it. A sensible user will typically perform a web search about the program before installing because in most cases, any potential trouble with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Stage three. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your personal computer’s performance, and these are all over the Net.
Seasoned customers will routinely operate two or three of the programs, because each company has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own established.

For additional reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have quite great Help documents that clarify how they work too as the distinctive characteristics of each.
Step 4. Evaluation apps that self-launch on startup. You computer may become a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a rapid-launch feature which allows them to be exposed rapidly; other programs will include an automatic update feature that demands them to be operating in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each requires a little bit of resources while your computer is running.
The simplest method to review and than to handle start ups will be to use one of the numerous small resources available (see the BC list of free applications). If, for example, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you may use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to turn off any you do not want. Remember that BC maintains a quite complete Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is required, discretionary, or not needed, if you’re uncertain about what could be safely removed.
At the same time, remember that those symbols in your Desktop also take a small number of trunk time to put themselves.

(Note for sophisticated users: some specialists would comprise the added maintenance step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and there are several applications to assist try this. For the most part, registry maintenance will not make a major difference, and unless you are quite comfy with Windows, and carefully make backups of the registry, you may do significant harm by making registry changes, so this step is not contained
Stage 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it mend 0x8007000b Xp It.
Step 7. Defragment your pc. Windows will put new documents in any available open space; defragging will set affiliated segments of files closer together so your read arm has less going around the hdd to do, saving wear and tear while racing up applications.
Hopefully, since you have have concluded, you will find a marked enhancement in pc operation.
