Because several readers reveal their computer responding slowly, I am publishing a summary listing of general things you can do to resolve the 756 Error Codeproblem, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance.
Maybe the most important contributor to a badly performing computer is malware. Often this is associated with downloading a software that contains spyware, by not having browser security settings large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by declining to install security sections in a timely manner.
Action 1. Update the definitions of your antivirus and run a full scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Note that some viruses need additional measures before they could be removed; generally a websearch will find specific directions or a particular removal tool. If you can’t find a answer, use the BC forums to obtain support.
Step 2. If the slowness is sudden, and you have recently downloaded an application, the problem might rest there. Test this by entirely removing it. A smart user will typically perform a websearch about the application before downloading it because in most cases, any possible issue with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Step three. Adware and Spyware can drastically impact your personal computer’s performance, and these are throughout the Net.
Revise the explanations of your anti spyware applications and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Seasoned customers will consistently run 2 or 3 of these applications, because each company has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A list 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 programs that self-start on startup. You computer can become a battleground for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a quick-start feature which enables them to be opened instantly; other programs will contain an automatic update feature that requires them to be working in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each requires a small bit of assets while your personal computer is running.
The easiest way to examine and than to manage startups would be to work with one of many little resources available (see the Bc list of free apps). Remember that Bc maintains a quite complete Startup Database that includes information about whether the questioned item is required, elective, or not needed, if you are unsure about what can be safely deleted.
At-the same time, remember that those icons on your Desktop also take a small amount of boot time to set themselves.
Absence of Maintenance
Step 5. Delete unused programs and exchange old files to your CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files that you have already opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are some types of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for high level users: some experts would include the additional upkeep step of cleaning the Windows registry, and there are plenty of applications to assist do that. For the most part, registry care will not make a major difference, and unless you are quite comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make backups of-the registry, you may do serious harm by creating registry changes, so this measure isn’t included
Stage 6. Have it fix 756 Error Code.
Action 7. Defragment your pc. Windows will put new files in any available open space; defragging will place related segments of files closer together so your read arm has less travelling around the hard drive to do, saving wear-and tear while speeding up applications.
Hopefully, now that you have have finished, you will see a noticeable improvement in computer performance.
