I am posting a summary record of basic things you can do to solve this problem, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care, because many readers reveal their computer responding slowly.
Perhaps the greatest contributor to a badly performing computer is malware. Usually this is associated with downloading an application that includes spyware, by not having browser security settings high enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by declining to install security areas in a timely manner.
Action 1. Update the definitions of your antivirus and operate a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Notice that some viruses need extra steps before they can be removed; usually a websearch will find specific instructions or a special removal tool. If you fail to find a answer, use the Bc forums to request support.
Step Two. If the sluggishness is sudden, and you have recently downloaded an application, the issue may dwell there. Check this by entirely eliminating it. A wise user will normally perform a websearch about the application before installing because in most cases, any potential difficulty with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Action three. Adware and Spyware can drastically impact your computer’s functionality, and these are throughout the Internet. A very recent study showed that one out of every 20 executable files on Web sites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains include at least one bit of spyware waiting for sufferers.
Revise the definitions of your anti spyware programs and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Seasoned customers will regularly operate two or three of these programs, because each business has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A record of really good, free antispyware applications is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
For further reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have really good Help files that describe how they function as well as the special features of each.
Step 4. Review programs that self-launch on startup. You computer can be a battleground for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a quick-start feature which allows them to be exposed immediately; other programs may comprise an automated update feature that requires them to be operating in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each needs a small bit of sources while your personal computer is running.
Remember that Bc maintains a quite complete Startup Database that contains info about whether the item is needed, elective, or unnecessary, if you’re uncertain about what can be safely removed.
At the same time, remember that those icons on your Desktop also take a modest amount of boot time to set themselves.
Lack of Upkeep
Step 5. Cleanup your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused applications and exchange old files to your CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files that 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 delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for sophisticated users: some experts would contain the additional care step of cleaning the Windows registry, and you’ll find several applications to help do this. For the most part, so this step is not included, you can do serious damage by making registry changes, registry maintenance will not make a vital difference, and unless you are quite comfy with Windows, and carefully make backups of the registry
Action 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it fix Hp Error Code 52.
Stage 7. Defragment your personal computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have ended, you will see a marked enhancement in pc operation.
