Perhaps the greatest factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Revise the definitions of your anti-virus and run a full scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Notice that some infections require extra steps until they can be removed; generally a websearch will find specific directions or a special removal tool. If you fail to find a answer, use the BC forums to obtain support.
Step 2. If the slowness is unexpected, and you have recently downloaded an application, the issue might reside there. Test this by completely removing it. A wise user will typically perform a websearch about the application before installing because in most instances, any potential problem with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Stage three. Adware and Spyware can radically impact your personal computer’s operation, and these are around the Internet.
Experienced customers will frequently operate 2 or 3 of the applications, because each company has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own established. (A listing of quite good, free anti spyware programs is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
Stage 4. Evaluation programs that self-launch on startup. You computer may become a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a quick-start feature that enables them to be opened rapidly; other programs may contain an automatic update feature that requires them to be operating in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each needs a little bit of resources while your computer is running.
Remember that Bc maintains a quite complete Startup Database that contains information about whether the questioned item is needed, elective, or unnecessary, if you are unsure about what can be safely removed.
At-the same time, remember that those icons on your Desktop also take a small number of boot time to place themselves.
Absence of Care
Step 5. Delete unused applications and transfer old files to a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family pictures, zipped files which you have already opened, applications you have not used in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are some examples of files you can delete.
(Note for advanced level users: some experts would contain the additional care stage of cleaning the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of applications to assist do that. For the most part, so this step is not included, you may do severe harm by making registry modifications, registry maintenance won’t make a vital difference, and unless you are quite comfy with Windows, and cautiously make backups of the registry
Stage 6. Have it fix Windows Mouse Freeze.
Action 7. Defragment your pc. Windows tends to put new files in any available open space; defragging will set related segments of files closer together therefore your read arm has less travelling around the hdd to do, saving wear-and tear while boosting up applications.
Hopefully, since you have have finished, you will see a noticeable enhancement in computer performance.
