Maybe the greatest contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Step 1. Update the definitions of your anti-virus and operate a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Note that some viruses need extra measures until they could be removed; usually a internet search will find specific directions or a particular removal tool. Use the BC forums to obtain help, if you can’t find a answer.
Step 2. If the sluggishness is unexpected, and you have recently downloaded an application, the issue may reside there. Test this by fully eliminating it. A user will normally perform a websearch about the application before installing because in most cases, any possible difficulty with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Stage three. Adware and Spyware can radically impact your personal computer’s functionality, and these are all over the Web.
Experienced users will consistently run several of these programs, because each company has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own set. (A set 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 Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have really good Help files that describe how they operate too as the special characteristics of each.
Stage 4. Review apps that self-launching on startup. You computer can be a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a quick-start feature that enables them to be exposed fast; other programs may contain an automatic update feature that requires them to be running in the background. Each of these slows down your debut Windows and each requires a small bit of resources while your computer is running.
The simplest approach to review and than to manage start-ups would be to utilize one of many little resources available (see the Bc list of free applications). If, for example, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you may use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to show off any you don’t want. If you’re unsure about what can be safely deleted, remember that BC maintains a very comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is needed, optional, or not needed.
At the same time, remember that all those symbols on your Background also take a modest number of boot time to set themselves.
Lack of Upkeep
Step 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Stage 7). Delete unused programs and transfer old files to your CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files that you have opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for the old printer you put away last year—these are some types of files you can delete.
(Note for higher level users: some specialists would contain the added upkeep step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you’ll find plenty of applications to help do that. For the most part, registry maintenance won’t make a critical difference, and unless you’re really comfortable with Windows, and carefully make backups of-the registry, you can do significant damage by making registry modifications, so this measure is not included
Stage 6. Have it mend Windows 7 Error Code 303.
Stage 7. Defragment your pc. Windows tends to set new documents in any available open space; defragging will place associated sections of files closer together therefore your read arm has less going around the hdd to do, saving wear and tear while speeding up plans.
Hopefully, since you have have concluded, you will find a marked enhancement in computer functionality.
