Maybe the most important contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Revise the explanations of your anti virus and run a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Note that some viruses need additional steps before they can be removed; ordinarily a internet search will find specific instructions or a special removal tool. Use the BC forums to obtain support, if you can’t find a solution.
Step 2. If the slowness is unexpected, and you have recently saved an application, the problem might rest there. Check this by fully eliminating it. A smart user will usually perform a web search about the program before downloading it because in most instances, any potential trouble with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Action three. Adware and Spyware can drastically impact your computer’s functionality, and these are around the Internet.
Revise the explanations of your anti-spyware programs and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Experienced users will routinely operate several of the applications, because each company has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own set. (A set of quite great, free anti spyware programs is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
Stage 4. Review apps that self-launch on startup. You computer can become a battleground for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a rapid-launch feature which enables them to be opened instantly; other programs may comprise an automatic update feature that demands them to be operating in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each needs a small bit of resources while your personal computer is running.
In case you are unsure about what can be safely deleted, remember that Bc maintains a quite complete Startup Database that contains info about whether the item is required, elective, or unnecessary.
At the same time, remember that those icons on your Background also take a modest amount of boot time to set themselves.
Lack of Maintenance
Step 5. Cleanup your hard drive (preparation for Step 7). Delete unused applications 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 examples of files you can delete.
(Note for sophisticated users: some professionals would include the additional maintenance stage of cleaning the Windows registry, and you will find several programs to help try this. For the most part, registry care will not make a major difference, and unless you are quite comfy with Windows, and cautiously make copies of-the registry, you may do severe harm by creating registry changes, so this step isn’t contained
Stage 6. Have it repair Freeware Scanning Software.
Step 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, since you have have ended, you will find a marked improvement in computer operation.
