Perhaps the most important contributor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Update the definitions of your antivirus and run a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Note that some viruses need additional steps until they could be removed; usually a internet search will locate specific directions or a special removal tool. If you fail to find a solution, use the Bc forums to request help.
Step 2. If the slowness is unanticipated, and you have recently saved an application, the problem might reside there. Check this by completely removing it. A sensible user will usually perform a web search about the program before downloading it because in most cases, any potential problem with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Action three. Adware and Spyware can dramatically impact your personal computer’s performance, and these are around the Net.
Revise the definitions of your anti-spyware programs and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Seasoned customers will routinely run two or three of these applications, because each company has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own established. (A record of really good, free anti spyware programs is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
For additional reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have really good Help documents that describe how they function also as the distinctive attributes of each.
Step 4. Evaluation apps that self-launch on startup. You pc may become a battleground for your consideration. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-start feature which permits them to be opened instantly; other programs will comprise 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 needs a small bit of resources while your computer is running.
If, for example, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you can use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to turn off any you do not need. If you’re uncertain about what may be safely deleted, remember that BC maintains a really complete Startup Database that includes info about whether the questioned item is needed, optional, or not needed.
At the same time, remember that those symbols on your Desktop also take a small amount of boot time to set themselves.
Lack of Care
Stage 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused programs and exchange old files to your CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files which you have previously opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are a few types of files you can delete.
(Note for advanced users: some professionals would include the added maintenance step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you’ll find several applications to help do that. For the most part, registry care won’t make a critical difference, and unless you are really comfortable with Windows, and carefully make backups of the registry, you can do serious harm by making registry modifications, so this step is not included
Stage 6. Have it repair Windows 98 Os Software.
Stage 7. Defragment your pc.
Hopefully, now that you have have finished, you’ll find a noticeable improvement in computer functionality.
