I am posting a summary record of general steps you can take to resolve this problem, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance, because several readers write about their computer reacting slowly.
Maybe the greatest factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Step 1. Revise the explanations of your anti virus and operate a full scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Notice that some viruses require additional steps before they may be removed; generally a websearch will find specific instructions or a special removal tool. If you can’t find a answer, use the BC forums to request help.
Step Two. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the slowness is unanticipated, the issue may rest there. Test this by fully removing it. A user will normally perform a websearch about the program before installing because in most cases, any possible problem with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Stage 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically impact your computer’s functionality, and these are all over the Internet.
Update the explanations of your anti-spyware applications and scan your hard drives in Safe Mode. Seasoned customers will frequently run two or three of these programs, because each business has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A list of very good, free anti spyware programs is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
For further reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have very good Help documents that explain how they work too as the special characteristics of each.
Stage 4. Review applications that self-start on startup. You computer can become a arena for your consideration. Many programs, for example, install a quick-start feature that permits them to be opened rapidly; other programs may comprise an automatic update feature that demands them to be running 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 uncertain about what may be safely removed, remember that Bc maintains a quite comprehensive Startup Database that contains info about whether the questioned item is needed, elective, or unnecessary.
At-the same time, remember that all those symbols on your Desktop also take a modest amount of trunk time to place themselves.
Absence of Care
Stage 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Step 7). Delete unused programs and exchange old files to a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family pictures, zipped files that you have already opened, applications you have not used in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are some examples of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Clean-up to remove temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for higher level users: some professionals would include the added upkeep step of cleaning the Windows registry, and there are plenty of apps to assist try this. For the most part, registry maintenance won’t make a significant difference, and unless you’re really comfy with Windows, and cautiously make backups of-the registry, you can do significant harm by creating registry modifications, so this step isn’t included
Stage 6. Have it fix Error 2041 Quicktime Windows.
Stage 7. Defragment your pc. Windows will set new documents in any available open space; defragging will set related segments of files closer together so your read arm has less going around the hdd to do, saving wear and tear while boosting up applications.
Hopefully, now that you have have finished, you’ll find a noticeable enhancement in computer performance.
