Maybe the most important factor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Update the explanations of your antivirus and run a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Notice that some infections need additional steps until they may be removed; typically a internet search 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 downloaded an application, and if the slowness is sudden, the issue may dwell there. Check this by totally removing it. A user will usually perform a websearch about the application before downloading it because in most cases, any potential trouble with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.

Many programs, for instance, install a rapid-launch feature which permits them to be exposed fast; other programs will include an automated 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 resources while your computer is running.
The simplest way to review and than to handle start-ups will be to-use one of the numerous small resources available (see the BC list of free apps). Remember that BC maintains a really complete Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is required, elective, or not needed, in case you are unsure about what can be safely deleted.

Then use Window’s Disk Clean-up to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.

For the most part, so this measure isn’t included, you can do significant harm by making registry modifications, registry care won’t make a major difference, and unless you are quite comfortable with Windows, and carefully make backups of-the registry
