Possibly the greatest contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Generally this is associated with downloading a software that contains spyware, by not having browser security settings high enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by declining to install security sections regularly.

Step 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your personal computer’s performance, and these are around the Net. A very recent research 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.

(A set of quite good, free anti spyware programs is supplied by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next step.
Step 4. Review programs that self-launch on startup. You computer may become a battleground for your consideration. Many programs, for instance, install a rapid-start feature which allows them to be opened swiftly; other programs will contain an automated update feature that requires them to be operating in the background. Each of these decreases your launching Windows and each needs a small bit of sources while your personal computer is running.

If you are uncertain about what can be safely removed, remember that BC maintains a very complete Startup Database that includes info about whether the item is needed, discretionary, or not needed.

(Note for high level users: some experts would include the added maintenance step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find several applications to help do that. For the most part, registry maintenance will not make a vital difference, and unless you are quite comfy with Windows, and cautiously make copies of-the registry, you can do significant harm by creating registry modifications, so this measure isn’t contained
