Perhaps 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 settings large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security sections in a timely manner.
Step 1. Revise the explanations of your antivirus and run a full scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Notice that some infections require extra steps until they could be removed; ordinarily a internet search will locate specific directions or a special removal tool. Use the Bc forums to obtain support, if you fail to find a answer.
Step 2. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the sluggishness is sudden, the problem might reside there. Check this by completely eliminating it. A user will usually perform a web search about the program before downloading it because in most instances, any possible difficulty with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Step 3. Adware and Spyware can radically impact your computer’s performance, 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 piece of spyware waiting for victims.
Revise the definitions of your anti spyware programs and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Seasoned users will routinely run two or three of these programs, because each business has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own established. (A set of quite good, free anti-spyware programs is provided by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
Stage 4. Evaluation apps that self-launch on startup. You computer can be a arena for your interest. Many programs, for example, install a rapid-start feature that enables them to be opened promptly; other programs will include an automatic update feature that requires them to be running in the background. Each of these decreases your debut Windows and each requires a small bit of sources while your computer is running.
If, for example, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you can use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to show off any you usually do not want. If you’re uncertain about what may be safely removed, remember that Bc maintains a really complete Startup Database that contains info about whether the questioned item is required, elective, or unnecessary.
At-the same time, remember that all those icons on your Background also take a small amount of trunk time to place themselves.
Absence of Maintenance
Stage 5. Delete unused programs and transfer old files into a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files which you have 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 high level users: some professionals would contain the added maintenance step of cleaning the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of programs to help try this. For the most part, registry maintenance will not make a vital difference, and unless you’re quite comfy with Windows, and carefully make backups of the registry, you can do severe harm by making registry changes, so this step is not included
