Because several readers come up with their computer reacting slowly, I am submitting a summary listing of basic things you can do to solve the I O Error 23issue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care.
Perhaps the most important contributor to a badly performing computer is malware. Often this is associated with downloading a software that includes spyware, by not having browser security settings large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security areas in a timely manner.
Stage 1. Update the explanations of your anti virus and run a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Notice that some viruses require additional measures before they could be removed; normally a web search will locate specific instructions or a particular removal tool. If you cannot find a answer, use the BC forums to request assistance.
Step 2. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the slowness is surprising, the problem may reside there. Test this by entirely removing it. A user will generally perform a internet search about the application before downloading it because in most cases, any possible difficulty with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Step 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically impact your computer’s performance, and these are throughout the Internet. A very recent research indicated that one out-of every 20 executable files on Web sites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains contain at least one piece of spyware waiting for sufferers.
Seasoned customers will regularly run several of these applications, because each company has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own established. (A record of very good, free antispyware programs is supplied by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
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 describe how they function also as the distinctive characteristics of each.
Stage 4. Review apps that self-start on startup. You computer may be a battleground for your consideration. Many programs, for example, install a rapid-start feature which permits them to be exposed promptly; other programs may include an automated 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.
You can use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to show off any you do not want, if, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. If you are unsure about what could be safely removed, remember that BC maintains a quite comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is required, optional, or unnecessary.
At-the same time, remember that those icons in your Desktop also take a small number of trunk time to place themselves.
Lack of Upkeep
Step 5. Delete unused programs and move old files to your CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files which you have previously opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are a few examples of files you can delete.
(Note for advanced users: some specialists would comprise the added maintenance step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you’ll find plenty of apps to help do that. For the most part, so this measure isn’t contained, you can do severe damage by creating registry modifications, registry maintenance will not make a significant difference, and unless you are quite comfortable with Windows, and carefully make copies of-the registry
Stage 6. Have it mend I O Error 23.
Stage 7. Defragment your pc.
Hopefully, now that you have have finished, you’ll find a noticeable enhancement in computer performance.
