Possibly the most important contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Step 1. Revise the explanations of your anti-virus and operate a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Note that some infections require additional steps until they may be removed; typically a websearch will locate specific directions or a special removal tool. Use the Bc forums to obtain support, if you fail to find a solution.
Step Two. You’ve recently saved an application, and if the slowness is unanticipated, the issue may rest there. Test this by completely removing it. A sensible user will typically perform a websearch about the application before downloading it because in most cases, any possible issue with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Step three. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your computer’s functionality, and these are around the Net. A very recent research showed that one out-of every 20 executable files on Web sites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains feature at least one bit of spyware waiting for victims.
Update the definitions of your anti spyware applications and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Seasoned users will often operate 2 or 3 of these programs, because each business has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A record of very good, free antispyware programs is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
For additional reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have really good Help files that explain how they work too as the special features of each.
Stage 4. Review programs that self-launch on startup. You pc may become a battleground for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-launch feature which allows them to be exposed fast; other programs will include 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 sources while your computer is running.
The simplest way to review and than to manage start ups will be to utilize one of many small utilities available (see the BC list of free applications). Remember that BC maintains a really complete Startup Database that contains info about whether the questioned item is required, discretionary, or unnecessary, in case you are unsure about what may be safely deleted.
At the same time, remember that all those icons in your Desktop also take a modest number of boot time to put themselves.
Absence of Care
Step 5. Delete unused applications and move old files to a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files that you have previously opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are some 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 advanced level users: some professionals would contain the additional maintenance step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of applications to help try this. For the most part, so this step is not contained, you can do serious harm by making registry changes, registry care will not make a significant difference, and unless you are quite comfortable with Windows, and carefully make backups of-the registry

Step 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, since you have have ended, you’ll find a marked enhancement in pc functionality.
