Because many readers write about their computer responding slowly, I am submitting a summary listing of basic things you can do to solve the Code 800b0100 Windows 7issue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance.
Maybe the most important factor to a badly 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 declining to install security patches in a timely manner.
Step 1. Revise the definitions of your antivirus and run a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Note that some viruses require additional steps until they may be removed; normally a web search will locate specific directions or a special removal tool. If you cannot find a answer, use the Bc forums to obtain assistance.
Step Two. If the sluggishness is sudden, and you’ve recently saved an application, the issue might rest there. Test this by entirely eliminating it. A sensible user will normally perform a websearch about the application before getting because in most instances, any potential problem with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Step three. Adware and Spyware can dramatically impact your computer’s operation, and these are around the Net.
Seasoned users will routinely operate 2 or 3 of these programs, because each company has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A listing of quite good, free anti spyware programs is supplied by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
For further reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have really good Help files that clarify how they work also as the special attributes of each.
Stage 4. Evaluation applications that self-start on startup. You computer can become a battleground for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a quick-start feature that permits them to be opened rapidly; other programs may contain an automated update feature that requires them to be working in the background. Each of these slows down your launch Windows and each requires a small bit of assets while your computer is running.
The simplest method to review and than to manage start ups would be to-use one of the many little resources available (see the BC list of free programs). You can use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to turn off any you do not need, if, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. In case you are unsure about what may be safely removed, remember that BC maintains a quite complete Startup Database that contains information about whether the inquired item is needed, optional, or unnecessary.
At the same time, remember that those icons in your Desktop also take a modest number of boot time to put themselves.
Absence of Care
Stage 5. Delete unused applications and exchange old files into a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files that you have already opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for that old printer you put away last year—these are a few examples of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Clean-up to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for higher level users: some experts would contain the additional upkeep step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and there are plenty of applications to assist do that. For the most part, registry maintenance won’t make a vital difference, and unless you’re quite comfortable with Windows, and carefully make backups of-the registry, you can do serious damage by making registry modifications, so this step isn’t contained
Stage 6. Have it fix Code 800b0100 Windows 7.
Step 7. Defragment your pc.
Hopefully, since you have have finished, you’ll find a marked improvement in pc operation.
