Because several readers come up with their computer reacting slowly, I’m posting a summary record of general steps you can take to solve the Error_invalid_spi_valueissue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of care.
Possibly the greatest contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Often 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 in a timely manner.
Action 1. Update the definitions of your anti-virus and operate a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Note that some infections need extra measures until they can be removed; ordinarily a internet search will locate specific directions or a special removal tool. Use the BC forums to obtain assistance, if you fail to find a answer.
2. You have recently saved an application, and if the sluggishness is unanticipated, the issue might dwell there. Test this by fully eliminating it. A user will usually perform a internet search about the program before downloading it because in most instances, any potential trouble with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Action three. Adware and Spyware can drastically impact your personal computer’s functionality, and these are all over the Net. A very recent research showed that one out-of every 20 executable files on Websites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains comprise at least one bit of spyware waiting for victims.
Experienced customers will routinely operate two or three of these programs, because each business has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A record of really good, free anti spyware programs is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
For further reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have quite good Help files that clarify how they function also as the special characteristics of each.
Step 4. Evaluation apps that self-launch on startup. You pc may be a arena for your consideration. Many programs, for example, install a quick-start feature that enables them to be exposed instantly; other programs will include an automatic update feature that demands them to be running in the background. Each of these slows down your launch Windows and each requires a small bit of sources while your personal computer is running.
If, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you can use its startup tool that lists startups and enables you to turn off any you usually do not want. If you are uncertain about what can be safely removed, remember that Bc maintains a very comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is needed, optional, or unnecessary.
At-the same time, remember that those icons on your Background also take a small number of trunk time to place themselves.
Lack of Maintenance
Stage 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Step 7). Delete unused programs and move old files to your CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, 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 a few types of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to remove temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for higher level users: some professionals would include the added care stage of cleaning the Windows registry, and you’ll find plenty of apps to help do this. For the most part, registry maintenance will not make a critical difference, and unless you are quite comfy with Windows, and carefully make copies of-the registry, you may do severe harm by making registry modifications, so this measure isn’t contained
Action 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it mend Error_invalid_spi_value.
Step 7. Defragment your pc. Windows tends to set new files in any available open space; defragging will place affiliated sections of files closer together therefore your read arm has less going around the hdd to do, saving wear and tear while boosting up applications.
Hopefully, since you have have finished, you’ll find a marked improvement in computer performance.
