I’m submitting a summary checklist of basic steps you can take to resolve this problem, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance, because many readers reveal their computer responding slowly.
Maybe the most important contributor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Update the definitions of your antivirus and operate a complete scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Notice that some viruses require extra measures until they can be removed; ordinarily a internet search will find specific instructions or a particular removal tool. If you can’t find a answer, use the Bc forums to request support.
2. You have recently downloaded an application, and if the slowness is surprising, the issue may live there. Check this by fully removing it. A user will typically perform a websearch about the program before installing because in most cases, any possible trouble with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Step 3. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your personal computer’s performance, and these are around the Internet. A very recent study showed that one out of every 20 executable files on Websites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains include at least one bit of spyware waiting for victims.
Revise the explanations of your antispyware programs and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Seasoned customers will consistently run two or three of the programs, because each company has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own established. (A list of really good, free anti spyware programs is provided by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
Step 4. Evaluation programs that self-start on startup. You pc can be a arena for your consideration. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-launch feature that allows them to be exposed promptly; other programs may contain an automatic update feature that requires them to be working in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each requires a small bit of assets while your computer is running.
If you are unsure about what can be safely removed, remember that Bc maintains a very comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the inquired item is needed, discretionary, or unnecessary.
At-the same time, remember that all those symbols in your Desktop also take a small number of trunk time to place themselves.
Lack of Maintenance
Stage 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused applications and exchange old files into a CD. Unplayed games, lots 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 some examples 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 include the added upkeep stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you’ll find several apps to assist do this. For the most part, registry care won’t make a major difference, and unless you are quite comfortable with Windows, and carefully make copies of the registry, you may do significant damage by making registry modifications, so this measure is not contained
Step 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it repair Hp 2840 Windows 7 Scan.
Stage 7. Defragment your pc.
Hopefully, since you have have finished, you will find a noticeable improvement in computer functionality.
