Because many readers come up with their computer responding slowly, I’m posting a summary checklist of general things you can do to resolve the Bound To Unknown Type.problem, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient maintenance.
Perhaps the greatest factor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Generally 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 sections in a timely manner.
Step 1. Revise the definitions of your antivirus and operate a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Note that some infections require extra steps before they can be removed; typically a internet search will find specific directions or a particular removal tool. Use the BC forums to request assistance, if you can’t find a solution.
Step Two. If the sluggishness is unexpected, and you’ve recently downloaded an application, the issue may dwell there. Check this by entirely eliminating it. A user will generally perform a web search about the application before downloading it because in most cases, any potential issue with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Action 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically impact your computer’s performance, and these are all over the Internet.
Update the explanations of your anti-spyware applications and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Seasoned customers will frequently operate 2 or 3 of these applications, because each company has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A listing of really good, free anti-spyware programs is supplied by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
Step 4. Review programs that self-start on startup. You computer can become a arena for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-start feature which permits them to be exposed rapidly; other programs will contain an automatic update feature that requires them to be operating in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each needs a little bit of resources while your computer is running.
The easiest approach to examine and than to manage start ups is to work with one of many little utilities available (see the BC list of free programs). You may use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to show off any you do not need, if, for instance, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. If you are unsure about what can be safely removed, remember that BC maintains a really comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is required, elective, or unnecessary.
At-the same time, remember that all those symbols in your Desktop also take a small amount of boot time to place themselves.
Lack of Care
Stage 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused applications and transfer old files into a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files which you have already opened, applications you have not used in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are some types of files you can delete.
(Note for advanced users: some professionals would include the additional care stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and there are plenty of programs to assist try this. For the most part, so this step is not included, you may do severe harm by creating registry modifications, registry care will not make a vital difference, and unless you’re very comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make copies of-the registry
Stage 6. Have it repair Bound To Unknown Type..
Step 7. Defragment your pc.
Hopefully, since you have have finished, you will find a marked improvement in computer performance.
