I am posting a summary checklist of basic steps you can take to resolve this issue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance, because many readers come up with their computer responding slowly.
Maybe the greatest contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Usually this is associated with downloading a software that includes spyware, by not having browser security options large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security patches in a timely manner.
Stage 1. Revise the explanations of your anti virus and operate a complete scan of your drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Notice that some viruses need additional steps before they can be removed; normally a websearch will find specific directions or a special removal tool. If you can’t find a solution, use the BC forums to obtain help.
2. If the slowness is unanticipated, and you’ve recently downloaded an application, the problem may dwell there. Test this by entirely eliminating it. A user will usually perform a internet search about the program before downloading it because in most cases, any possible difficulty with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Stage three. Adware and Spyware can drastically impact your computer’s performance, and these are all over the Internet.
Seasoned customers will consistently run several of the programs, because each business has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A listing of very good, free anti-spyware programs is supplied by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
For additional reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have very good Help documents that clarify how they function also as the distinctive features of each.
Step 4. Review programs that self-start on startup. You pc can become a arena for your interest. Many programs, for example, install a fast-launch feature that enables them to be exposed instantly; other programs may comprise an automated update feature that requires them to be operating in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each requires a little bit of resources while your computer is running.
You may use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to turn off any you usually do not want, if, for instance, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. Remember that Bc maintains a quite complete Startup Database that includes information about whether the item is needed, optional, or unnecessary, if you are uncertain about what could be safely deleted.
At-the same time, remember that all those icons on your Desktop also take a modest number of boot time to place themselves.
Absence of Care
Step 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Stage 7). Delete unused applications and exchange old files into a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files which you have previously opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are some types of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for sophisticated users: some experts would include the added care step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and there are several applications to assist do this. For the most part, registry maintenance won’t make a major difference, and unless you are quite comfy with Windows, and carefully make backups of the registry, you can do serious harm by creating registry changes, so this measure is not contained
