Because many readers come up with their computer responding slowly, I’m submitting a summary checklist of general steps you can take to solve the Install Shield 80040707issue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care.
Maybe the greatest contributor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Revise the definitions of your anti virus and run a full scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Note that some viruses need extra measures before they may be removed; typically a websearch will find specific directions or a particular removal tool. If you cannot find a answer, use the BC forums to obtain support.
Step 2. You have recently saved an application, and if the slowness is abrupt, the problem might live there. Check this by totally eliminating it. A wise user will generally perform a web search about the program before downloading it because in most instances, any potential issue with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Step three. Adware and Spyware can drastically effect your computer’s performance, and these are all over the Internet.
Seasoned customers will consistently run 2 or 3 of these applications, because each company has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own established. (A list 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 Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have very good Help documents that explain how they operate also as the distinctive characteristics of each.
Step 4. Review programs that self-launching on startup. You computer may become a battleground for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-launch feature that enables them to be exposed quickly; other programs may contain an automatic update feature that requires them to be operating in the background. Each of these decreases your launching Windows and each requires a little bit of resources while your personal computer is running.
You may use its startup tool that lists startups and enables you to turn off any you do not need, if, for instance, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. If you’re unsure about what could be safely deleted, remember that BC maintains a quite comprehensive Startup Database that includes info about whether the inquired item is required, optional, or unnecessary.
At the same time, remember that those icons in your Background also take a modest amount of trunk time to set themselves.
Absence of Maintenance
Stage 5. Cleanup your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused applications and transfer old files into a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files that you have opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for the old printer you put away last year—these are a few examples of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Clean-up to remove temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for advanced users: some professionals would contain the additional maintenance step of cleaning the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of programs to help do this. For the most part, so this step is not included, you may do serious damage by creating registry changes, registry maintenance will not make a significant difference, and unless you’re quite comfy with Windows, and carefully make copies of-the registry
Step 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it fix Install Shield 80040707.
Step 7. Defragment your computer. Windows tends to put new documents in any available open space; defragging will set affiliated segments of files closer together so your read arm has less going around the hdd to do, saving wear and tear while speeding up programs.
Hopefully, since you have have concluded, you’ll find a noticeable enhancement in computer performance.
