I am publishing a summary listing of general things you can do to resolve this problem, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care, because many readers write about their computer responding slowly.
Maybe the greatest factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Update the explanations of your antivirus and operate a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Notice that some infections require extra steps before they can be removed; generally a web search will locate specific instructions or a special removal tool. If you can’t find a answer, use the Bc forums to obtain support.
Step 2. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the sluggishness is sudden, the problem might dwell there. Test this by fully eliminating it. A wise user will typically perform a web search about the application before downloading it because in most cases, any possible problem with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Step three. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your computer’s functionality, and these are all over the Web. A very recent study showed that one out of every 20 executable files on Web sites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains include at least one piece of spyware waiting for victims.
Revise the explanations of your anti spyware applications and scan your hard drives in Safe Mode. Seasoned customers will regularly run 2 or 3 of these programs, because each company has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A listing of quite great, free anti spyware programs is supplied by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next step.
For additional reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have really great Help files that explain how they operate as well as the special attributes of each.
Step 4. Evaluation applications that self-start on startup. You pc may be a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-start feature that enables them to be opened immediately; other programs may contain an automated update feature that requires them to be running in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each requires a little bit of resources while your personal computer is running.
The simplest approach to examine and than to handle start-ups would be to use one of the many little utilities available (see the Bc list of free apps). Remember that BC maintains a really comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is needed, elective, or unnecessary, if you’re unsure about what can be safely deleted.
At-the same time, remember that those symbols in your Background also take a modest amount of boot time to put themselves.
Absence of Upkeep
Step 5. Cleanup your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused applications and transfer old files into a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family pictures, zipped files that you have already opened, applications you haven’t found in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are a few examples of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Clean-up to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for advanced level users: some specialists would include the additional care step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find several applications to assist do this. For the most part, registry care will not make a significant difference, and unless you’re very comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make copies of-the registry, you can do significant harm by creating registry changes, so this step isn’t contained
Action 6. Have it repair Socket Error 11001 Host Not Found Stahov¡n.
Action 7. Defragment your computer. Windows will put new files in any available open space; defragging will place 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 plans.
Hopefully, now that you have have ended, you’ll find a marked improvement in computer functionality.
