Because several readers reveal their computer reacting slowly, I’m publishing a summary checklist of general things you can do to resolve the 0x800ccc13problem, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance.
Possibly the most important contributor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Revise the definitions of your antivirus and operate a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Notice that some infections require additional steps before they could be removed; usually a internet search will find specific instructions or a special removal tool. Use the BC forums to obtain help, if you cannot find a solution.
Step Two. If the sluggishness is sudden, and you have recently saved an application, the problem might rest there. Check this by fully removing it. A wise user will typically perform a internet search about the program before getting because in most cases, any potential difficulty with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Action three. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your personal computer’s operation, and these are throughout the Web.
Update the definitions of your antispyware applications and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Experienced users will consistently run 2 or 3 of the applications, because each business has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A set of quite great, free anti-spyware programs is supplied by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
Stage 4. Evaluation applications that self-start on startup. You computer can be a battleground for your interest. Many programs, for example, install a quick-launch feature which permits them to be opened rapidly; other programs will comprise an automatic update feature that requires them to be running in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each needs a small bit of assets while your personal computer is running.
The simplest method to examine and than to handle start ups would be to utilize one of the numerous little resources available (see the Bc list of free programs). In case you are unsure about what may be safely removed, remember that BC maintains a really complete Startup Database that includes info about whether the item is required, optional, or unnecessary.
At-the same time, remember that those icons on your Desktop also take a small amount of trunk time to set themselves.
Absence of Maintenance
Step 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Stage 7). Delete unused applications and move old files into a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files that you have opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for that old printer you put away last year—these are some types of files you can delete.
(Note for higher level users: some experts would contain the added care stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and there are plenty of programs to help try this. For the most part, so this measure isn’t included, you can do severe damage by making registry changes, registry maintenance will not make a critical difference, and unless you’re very comfy with Windows, and carefully make backups of-the registry
Stage 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it fix 0x800ccc13.
Stage 7. Defragment your computer. Windows tends to set new documents in any available open space; defragging will place related sections of files closer together therefore your read arm has less going around the hard drive to do, saving wear and tear while boosting up plans.
Hopefully, since you have have ended, you’ll see a noticeable enhancement in computer operation.
