Because many readers write about their computer reacting slowly, I am posting a summary record of general things you can do to resolve the Internet Speed Enhancerproblem, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance.
Possibly the most important factor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Step 1. Update the definitions of your anti-virus and run a full scan of your drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Notice that some viruses require additional measures before they may be removed; generally a web search will find specific directions or a particular removal tool. Use the Bc forums to obtain help, if you fail to find a answer.
Step 2. If the sluggishness is unexpected, and you have recently saved an application, the issue might live there. Check this by totally removing it. A user will usually perform a websearch about the application before downloading it because in most cases, any possible difficulty with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Action three. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your personal computer’s performance, and these are around the Net. A very recent study showed that one out-of every 20 executable files on Web sites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains contain at least one bit of spyware waiting for sufferers.
Seasoned users will frequently run 2 or 3 of the applications, because each company has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A list of quite great, 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 very good Help documents that describe how they function too as the special characteristics of each.
Stage 4. Review applications that self-launch on startup. You pc can be a arena for your consideration. Many programs, for example, install a fast-launch feature that enables them to be exposed swiftly; other programs may include an automated update feature that demands them to be working in the background. Each of these slows down your debut Windows and each requires a small bit of resources while your computer is running.
If, for example, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you can use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to turn off any you usually do not want. Remember that Bc maintains a really comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is required, elective, or not needed, in case you are unsure about what could be safely removed.
At the same time, remember that all those icons on your Desktop also take a modest number of boot time to place themselves.
Absence of Care
Stage 5. Delete unused applications and exchange old files into a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files that you have opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for the old printer you put away last year—these are a few types of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Clean-up to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for high level users: some professionals would comprise the additional care stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you’ll find plenty of programs to help do this. For the most part, so this step is not contained, you may do severe damage by making registry modifications, registry care will not make a major difference, and unless you are really comfortable with Windows, and carefully make copies of the registry
Step 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it mend Internet Speed Enhancer.
Step 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, since you have have ended, you’ll find a marked improvement in computer operation.
