I am publishing a summary listing of general things you can do to resolve this issue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient maintenance, because many readers write about their computer reacting slowly.
Possibly the most important contributor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Revise the explanations of your anti virus and operate a full scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Notice that some infections need additional steps until they can be removed; normally a internet search will find specific instructions or a particular removal tool. If you cannot find a solution, use the Bc forums to obtain assistance.
2. If the slowness is surprising, and you’ve recently downloaded an application, the problem might dwell there. Check this by fully eliminating it. A sensible user will generally perform a web search about the application before downloading it because in most instances, any possible issue with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Step three. Adware and Spyware can drastically effect your computer’s performance, and these are throughout the Net.
Seasoned users will regularly operate 2 or 3 of the applications, because each company has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own set. (A record of very good, free anti spyware applications is supplied by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
For further reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have quite good Help documents that clarify how they function also as the unique attributes of each.
Step 4. Evaluation programs that self-launching on startup. You computer may be a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a fast-launch feature which enables them to be opened instantly; other programs may include an automated update feature that demands them to be running in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each needs a small bit of assets while your personal computer is running.
The simplest approach to review and than to handle start-ups is to utilize one of the numerous little utilities available (see the BC list of free applications). You may use its startup tool that lists startups and enables you to turn off any you don’t need, if, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. If you’re unsure 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, discretionary, or not needed.
At-the same time, remember that those symbols on your own Desktop also take a small amount of boot time to place themselves.
Absence of Upkeep
Stage 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Step 7). Delete unused applications and move old files into a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files that you have previously opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are some types of files you can delete.
(Note for sophisticated users: some specialists would contain the added maintenance step of cleaning the Windows registry, and you’ll find plenty of programs to help do that. For the most part, registry maintenance will not make a critical difference, and unless you’re really comfy with Windows, and carefully make backups of the registry, you may do serious damage by making registry changes, so this measure is not included
