Perhaps the most important contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Update the explanations of your anti virus and run a full scan of your drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Note that some viruses require extra measures before they can be removed; usually a websearch will locate specific directions or a particular removal tool. Use the BC forums to obtain assistance, if you can’t find a solution.
Step 2. If the sluggishness is unexpected, and you have recently downloaded an application, the problem may dwell there. Test this by entirely removing it. A user will normally perform a internet search about the program before downloading it because in most cases, any potential problem with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Step 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically impact your personal computer’s performance, and these are all over the Web. A very recent study showed that one out of every 20 executable files on Web sites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains contain at least one bit of spyware waiting for victims.
Seasoned customers will often operate several of these applications, because each company has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own established. (A set of quite great, free antispyware applications is supplied by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
Stage 4. Review apps that self-launch on startup. You computer may become a arena for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a fast-start feature which enables them to be exposed fast; other programs may contain an automatic update feature that demands them to be working in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each requires a small bit of assets while your personal computer is running.
If, for example, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you may use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to show off any you usually do not need. If you are uncertain about what may be safely removed, remember that BC maintains a really comprehensive Startup Database that includes info about whether the item is needed, elective, or not needed.
At-the same time, remember that those icons on your own Background also take a small number of boot time to put themselves.
Absence of Care
Step 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Stage 7). Delete unused programs and exchange old files to a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family pictures, zipped files which you have already opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for that old printer you put away last year—these are a few examples of files you can delete.
(Note for advanced users: some professionals would contain the additional maintenance step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and there are several apps to help do that. For the most part, registry care will not make a significant difference, and unless you are really comfortable with Windows, and carefully make backups of the registry, you can do serious harm by creating registry changes, so this measure isn’t included
Action 6. Have it repair Error 200 Pascal.
Action 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have concluded, you will find a marked improvement in computer functionality.
