Maybe the greatest factor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Often this is associated with downloading a software that contains spyware, by not having browser security options large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security areas regularly.
Action 1. Update the definitions of your anti-virus and operate a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Note that some viruses need extra steps before they could be removed; typically a websearch will find specific instructions or a particular removal tool. If you cannot find a answer, use the BC forums to request assistance.
Step Two. You have recently saved an application, and if the sluggishness is unanticipated, the problem may rest there. Check this by fully removing it. A sensible user will typically perform a websearch about the program before installing because in most cases, any possible trouble with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Action 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically impact your personal computer’s functionality, and these are around the Internet.
Revise the definitions of your antispyware programs and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Experienced customers will often run 2 or 3 of these applications, because each business has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A set of quite great, free anti-spyware programs is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
Stage 4. Review programs that self-launching on startup. You pc can be a arena for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a quick-launch feature that permits them to be opened quickly; other programs will include an automatic update feature that requires them to be running in the background. Each of these slows down your launch Windows and each needs a little bit of resources while your personal computer is running.
If, for instance, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you may use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to show off any you don’t need. If you’re uncertain about what may be safely deleted, remember that Bc maintains a very complete Startup Database that includes info about whether the item is needed, optional, or unnecessary.
At the same time, remember that those icons on your Desktop also take a small number of trunk time to place themselves.
Lack of Maintenance
Step 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Stage 7). Delete unused programs and exchange old files to your CD.

Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to remove temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for high level users: some specialists would contain the additional maintenance step of cleaning the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of apps to assist try this. For the most part, registry maintenance won’t make a significant difference, and unless you are quite comfy with Windows, and cautiously make copies of the registry, you can do significant damage by making registry modifications, so this measure is not contained
Stage 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it fix Blue Screen Error Codes.
Step 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, since you have have ended, you will find a noticeable improvement in computer operation.
