Because many readers come up with their computer reacting slowly, I am posting a summary record of general things you can do to resolve the Blue Screen 0x0000001eissue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care.
Maybe the greatest factor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Usually this is associated with downloading an application that includes spyware, by not having browser security settings high enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security sections in a timely manner.
Action 1. Revise the definitions of your anti virus and run a complete scan of your drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Notice that some infections require extra measures until they can be removed; generally a websearch will locate specific instructions or a special removal tool. If you fail to find a answer, use the Bc forums to request assistance.
Step 2. You have recently saved an application, and if the sluggishness is surprising, the issue may rest there. Check this by fully eliminating it. A wise user will typically perform a web search about the program before installing because in most instances, any potential difficulty with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Stage 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your personal computer’s functionality, and these are throughout the Web. A very recent study indicated that one out-of every 20 executable files on Web sites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains include at least one piece of spyware waiting for sufferers.
Revise the explanations of your anti spyware applications and scan your hard drives in Safe Mode. Seasoned users will consistently operate 2 or 3 of the applications, because each business has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own established. (A record of quite good, free anti-spyware programs is given by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
Step 4. Review applications that self-launch on startup. You computer may be a battleground for your interest. Many programs, for example, install a fast-launch feature which allows them to be exposed rapidly; other programs may include 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 needs a little bit of assets while your personal computer is running.
The easiest way to examine and than to handle startups will be to work with one of the numerous small utilities available (see the BC list of free apps). You can use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to show off any you do not want, if, for example, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. If you are uncertain about what may be safely removed, remember that Bc maintains a very complete Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is needed, optional, or not needed.
At the same time, remember that those icons on your own Background also take a modest number of trunk time to put themselves.
Lack of Care
Stage 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused programs and transfer old files to your CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files that you have already opened, applications you haven’t found in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are a few types of files you can delete.
(Note for higher level users: some professionals would include the added upkeep step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and there are several programs to assist do this. For the most part, so this measure isn’t included, you may do serious harm by making registry modifications, registry maintenance will not make a critical difference, and unless you are very comfy with Windows, and carefully make backups of-the registry
Action 6. Have it repair Blue Screen 0x0000001e.
Step 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have concluded, you will see a marked improvement in pc operation.
