Because many readers write about their computer responding slowly, I am submitting a summary checklist of general steps you can take to resolve the Error 6006issue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of care.
Maybe the greatest factor to a badly performing computer is malware. Usually this is related to downloading an application that contains spyware, by not having browser security options large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security sections regularly.
Stage 1. Update the definitions of your anti virus and run a complete scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Note that some viruses need extra measures before they may be removed; generally a websearch will find specific directions or a particular removal tool. If you fail to find a solution, use the Bc forums to obtain help.
Step Two. If the slowness is abrupt, and you have recently downloaded an application, the problem may dwell there. Test this by fully removing it. A user will typically perform a websearch about the program before getting because in most cases, any possible problem with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Action three. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your personal computer’s operation, and these are all over the World wide web.
Seasoned users will often operate several of these programs, because each company has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A listing of quite good, free antispyware applications is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next step.
Stage 4. Evaluation applications that self-start on startup. You computer can become a battleground for your consideration. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-start feature which allows them to be opened rapidly; other programs will contain an automated update feature that requires them to be running in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each needs a little bit of resources while your personal computer is running.
The simplest way to examine and than to handle start-ups is to-use one of the many little resources available (see the BC list of free programs). If, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you may use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to turn off any you don’t need. Remember that BC maintains a really complete Startup Database that includes information about whether the item is required, optional, or not needed, if you are uncertain about what could be safely deleted.
At the same time, remember that those symbols in your Background also take a small number of boot time to put themselves.
Lack of Maintenance
Step 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused programs and transfer old files to your CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files that you have already opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for that old printer you put away last year—these are a few 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 advanced users: some specialists would comprise the additional care stage of cleaning the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of programs to help do that. For the most part, so this step is not contained, you may do significant damage by creating registry changes, registry maintenance will not make a vital difference, and unless you are really comfy with Windows, and carefully make backups of-the registry
Stage 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it fix Error 6006.
Action 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have concluded, you’ll see a noticeable improvement in pc operation.
