Because many readers come up with their computer responding slowly, I am publishing a summary checklist of general steps you can take to resolve the Professional Blue Screenissue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care.
Perhaps the most important factor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Often this is associated with downloading an application that includes spyware, by not having browser security settings large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by declining to install security areas regularly.
Action 1. Revise the definitions of your anti virus and operate a complete scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Note that some infections require additional measures before they can be removed; generally a websearch will locate specific instructions or a special removal tool. Use the Bc forums to request assistance, if you fail to find a answer.
2. If the slowness is unexpected, and you’ve recently saved an application, the problem may reside there. Test this by completely removing it. A wise user will normally perform a internet search about the application before getting because in most instances, any potential difficulty with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Stage 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your personal computer’s performance, and these are all over the Internet.
Seasoned customers will often operate several of the programs, because each business has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A set of really good, free antispyware programs is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
For additional reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have quite good Help documents that describe how they operate too as the distinctive attributes of each.
Stage 4. Review programs that self-launching on startup. You pc can become a arena for your consideration. Many programs, for example, install a fast-launch feature which permits them to be opened rapidly; other programs may contain an automated update feature that requires them to be operating in the background. Each of these slows down your launch Windows and each requires a little bit of resources while your computer is running.
The simplest way to examine and than to handle start-ups would be to use one of the many small resources available (see the Bc list of free programs). If, for example, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you may use its startup tool that lists startups and enables you to turn off any you usually do not need. Remember that BC maintains a very comprehensive Startup Database that contains info about whether the item is needed, elective, or unnecessary, if you’re unsure about what could be safely removed.
At the same time, remember that those symbols on your own Desktop also take a small amount of boot time to set themselves.
Lack of Maintenance
Step 5. Clean up 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 already 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 Cleanup to remove temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for advanced users: some professionals would comprise the additional maintenance step of cleaning the Windows registry, and there are several applications to assist do this. For the most part, registry care will not make a vital difference, and unless you are very comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make copies of-the registry, you may do significant harm by making registry modifications, so this step is not included
Stage 6. Have it fix Professional Blue Screen.
Stage 7. Defragment your personal computer.
Hopefully, since you have have finished, you will see a marked enhancement in computer operation.
