Perhaps the greatest contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Step 1. Revise the definitions 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 need extra measures until they could be removed; ordinarily a web search will find specific instructions or a particular removal tool. If you fail to find a solution, use the BC forums to request assistance.
Step Two. If the slowness is sudden, and you have recently saved an application, the issue may dwell there. Test this by entirely removing it. A user will generally perform a internet search about the application before installing because in most cases, any possible problem with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Stage 3. Adware and Spyware can drastically impact your computer’s operation, and these are all over the Net.
Update the definitions of your antispyware programs and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Experienced customers will regularly run several of these applications, because each company has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A list of quite good, free antispyware applications is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
For further reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have very great Help files that clarify how they operate too as the special characteristics of each.
Stage 4. Review apps that self-launching on startup. You computer can be a arena for your consideration. Many programs, for example, install a fast-start feature that allows them to be exposed fast; other programs may contain an automated update feature that requires 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 may use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to turn off any you don’t need, if, for example, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. In case you are uncertain about what may be safely removed, remember that BC maintains a quite comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is needed, optional, or unnecessary.
At-the same time, remember that all those icons in your Desktop also take a small amount of boot time to place themselves.
Absence 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 previously opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for the old printer you threw 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 high level users: some professionals would contain the additional upkeep step of cleaning the Windows registry, and you will find several applications to assist try this. For the most part, registry maintenance won’t make a vital difference, and unless you are very comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make copies of the registry, you may do serious harm by making registry modifications, so this step isn’t contained
Step 6. Have it repair Recovering File.
Action 7. Defragment your personal computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have concluded, you will find a noticeable improvement in pc performance.
