Because many readers come up with their computer reacting slowly, I am submitting a summary listing of general things you can do to resolve the Could not find the domain controller for domain 1.issue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of care.
Maybe the greatest contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Generally this is associated with downloading an application that includes spyware, by not having browser security options large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by declining to install security areas regularly.
Stage 1. Update the definitions of your anti-virus and operate a complete scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Note that some infections need extra measures until they can be removed; generally a websearch will find specific instructions or a special removal tool. If you cannot find a solution, use the Bc forums to obtain assistance.
Step 2. If the slowness is sudden, and you have recently downloaded an application, the problem might live there. Test this by fully eliminating it. A user will usually perform a web search about the program before getting because in most instances, any potential trouble with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Action three. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your personal computer’s functionality, and these are around the Net. A very recent research showed that one out of every 20 executable files on Websites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains feature at least one bit of spyware waiting for sufferers.
Seasoned customers will regularly run two or three of the programs, because each business has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own established. (A listing of quite great, free antispyware programs is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
For additional reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have really good Help documents that explain how they operate too as the special attributes of each.
Step 4. Review applications that self-launching on startup. You pc may become a battleground for your consideration. Many programs, for example, install a fast-launch feature which allows them to be exposed fast; other programs will contain an automated update feature that requires them to be running in the background. Each of these slows down your launching Windows and each needs a little bit of resources while your personal computer is running.
The simplest way to review and than to handle start ups would be to work with one of the many small resources available (see the Bc list of free apps). You may use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to show off any you usually do not need, if, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. In case you are unsure about what may be safely deleted, remember that Bc maintains a very comprehensive Startup Database that includes info about whether the item is required, elective, or not needed.
At-the same time, remember that those symbols in your Background also take a small amount of boot time to place themselves.
Absence of Care
Step 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused programs and exchange old files to a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files that you have already opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are some types of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for advanced users: some professionals would include the additional upkeep stage of cleaning the Windows registry, and there are plenty of applications to help do this. For the most part, registry maintenance will not make a critical difference, and unless you are quite comfy with Windows, and cautiously make backups of-the registry, you may do serious harm by creating registry changes, so this measure isn’t contained
Action 6. Have it mend Could not find the domain controller for domain 1..
Step 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have ended, you will see a noticeable improvement in computer performance.
