Because many readers write about their computer responding slowly, I am posting a summary record of general steps you can take to solve the Exchange Error 80040600issue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient maintenance.
Possibly the greatest contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Usually this is associated with downloading an application that contains spyware, by not having browser security settings high enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security sections regularly.
Action 1. Update the explanations of your antivirus and operate a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Note that some viruses need additional measures before they may be removed; ordinarily a websearch will locate specific directions or a special removal tool. If you can’t find a answer, use the Bc forums to request assistance.
2. If the slowness is sudden, and you’ve recently saved an application, the issue might live there. Test this by entirely eliminating it. A user will generally perform a web search about the application before getting because in most instances, any potential difficulty with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Step 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically impact your computer’s performance, and these are around the Web.
Experienced users will regularly run two or three of these applications, because each business has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A set of really great, free anti-spyware applications is provided by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next step.
Step 4. Review applications that self-launching on startup. You computer can be a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-start feature which allows them to be opened rapidly; other programs will contain an automatic update feature that demands them to be working 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.
The easiest method to review and than to manage start ups would be to-use one of the numerous little utilities available (see the Bc list of free apps). You can use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to turn off any you don’t want, if, for instance, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. If you are uncertain about what may be safely removed, remember that BC maintains a very comprehensive Startup Database that contains info about whether the inquired item is required, elective, or not needed.
At the same time, remember that all those symbols on your own Background also take a small amount of boot time to set themselves.
Lack of Care
Stage 5. Delete unused programs and exchange old files to a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family pictures, zipped files which you have opened, applications you have not used in two years, software for that old printer you put away last year—these are a few types 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 experts would contain the added maintenance step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you’ll find plenty of programs to help try this. For the most part, so this step is not included, you can do significant damage by creating registry changes, registry care will not make a vital difference, and unless you are very comfy with Windows, and cautiously make copies of the registry
Step 6. Have it fix Exchange Error 80040600.
Stage 7. Defragment your computer. Windows tends to set new files in any available open space; defragging will set affiliated sections of files closer together therefore your read arm has less travelling around the hard drive to do, saving wear-and tear while boosting up applications.
Hopefully, now that you have have finished, you’ll see a noticeable improvement in computer performance.
