Possibly the most important contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Step 1. Update the definitions of your anti virus and run a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems.

If you cannot find a solution, use the Bc forums to request help.
2. If the slowness is surprising, and you have recently saved an application, the problem may rest there. Test this by fully eliminating it.

For further reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have quite good Help documents that explain how they function too as the special attributes of each.
Step 4. Review apps that self-start on startup. You computer may become a arena for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a rapid-launch feature that enables them to be opened instantly; other programs will include an automatic update feature that demands them to be operating in the background. Each of these decreases your debut Windows and each requires a small bit of sources while your personal computer is running.
The simplest way to examine and than to manage startups would be to work with one of many small resources available (see the Bc list of free programs). You can use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to turn off any you don’t want, if, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. Remember that BC maintains a very complete Startup Database that includes info about whether the item is needed, elective, or unnecessary, if you are uncertain about what could be safely removed.
At the same time, remember that those icons on your own Background also take a small amount of boot time to place themselves.

Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for advanced level users: some experts would include the added care stage of cleaning the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of programs to assist do that. For the most part, registry care will not make a major difference, and unless you’re really comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make copies of the registry, you can do significant harm by creating registry modifications, so this step isn’t contained
