Because many readers write about their computer responding slowly, I am submitting a summary checklist of basic things you can do to solve the Errorbadimpersonationlevelissue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care.
Possibly the most important contributor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Revise the explanations of your anti virus and run a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Notice that some infections need extra measures before they can be removed; typically a web search will find specific directions or a special removal tool. Use the Bc forums to request help, if you cannot find a solution.
2. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the sluggishness is sudden, the issue might live there. Test this by completely eliminating it. A user will typically perform a websearch about the application before downloading it because in most cases, any possible difficulty with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Action three. Adware and Spyware can drastically impact your personal computer’s performance, and these are around the Internet.
Experienced users will often run several of the applications, because each business has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A list of very good, free antispyware programs is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
For further reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have very good Help documents that explain how they function as well as the unique attributes of each.
Stage 4. Review applications that self-launching on startup. You computer can become a battleground for your consideration. Many programs, for example, install a quick-launch feature which enables them to be opened rapidly; other programs will contain an automatic update feature that requires them to be running in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each requires a little bit of sources while your personal computer is running.
The easiest way to review and than to handle start ups is to work with one of many small resources available (see the BC list of free applications). Remember that BC maintains a really comprehensive Startup Database that contains info about whether the item is required, optional, or unnecessary, in case you are uncertain about what can be safely removed.
At-the same time, remember that all those symbols on your own Desktop also take a small number of boot time to place themselves.
Lack of Maintenance
Step 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused programs and exchange old files to your CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files which you have opened, applications you have not used 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 remove temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for advanced users: some professionals would comprise the additional upkeep step of cleaning the Windows registry, and there are plenty of programs to help do this. For the most part, so this step isn’t contained, you may do significant harm by making registry modifications, registry maintenance won’t make a critical difference, and unless you are quite comfy with Windows, and carefully make backups of the registry
Action 6. Have it fix Errorbadimpersonationlevel.
Action 7. Defragment your pc.
Hopefully, since you have have ended, you’ll see a noticeable enhancement in pc functionality.
