Because several readers reveal their computer reacting slowly, I’m publishing a summary listing of basic steps you can take to solve the Error 1556problem, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of care.
Possibly the greatest contributor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Step 1. Update the explanations of your anti virus and run a full scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Note that some viruses need additional steps before they can be removed; generally a internet search will find specific instructions or a special removal tool. If you cannot find a solution, use the BC forums to request help.
Step 2. You have recently downloaded an application, and if the sluggishness is unexpected, the issue might reside there. Check this by entirely removing it. A wise user will typically perform a web search about the program before getting because in most cases, any possible problem with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Step three. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your personal computer’s functionality, and these are all over the Net.
Seasoned users will frequently operate 2 or 3 of these applications, because each company has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own established. (A set of very good, free anti-spyware applications is provided by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
For additional reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have really great Help documents that describe how they operate too as the special characteristics of each.
Stage 4. Review programs that self-start on startup. You pc can become a arena for your consideration. Many programs, for instance, install a quick-start feature that enables them to be opened rapidly; other programs may include an automatic update feature that demands them to be working in the background. Each of these decreases your launch Windows and each requires a little bit of resources while your computer is running.
If you’re unsure about what can be safely deleted, remember that BC maintains a very comprehensive Startup Database that includes information about whether the inquired item is required, optional, or unnecessary.
At the same time, remember that those icons in your Desktop also take a small number of boot time to place themselves.
Absence of Upkeep
Stage 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Step 7). Delete unused applications and exchange old files into a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files which you have 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. Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to remove temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for higher level users: some professionals would include the added maintenance step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find several programs to assist try this. For the most part, so this step isn’t contained, you may do serious damage by creating registry changes, registry care will not make a major difference, and unless you are really comfy with Windows, and cautiously make backups of the registry
Action 6. Have it fix Error 1556.
Step 7. Defragment your pc. Windows tends to set new files in any available open space; defragging will place related segments of files closer together therefore your read arm has less travelling around the hard drive to do, saving wear and tear while racing up programs.
Hopefully, now that you have have concluded, you’ll see a noticeable enhancement in computer operation.
