Before addressing any computer issue, I always recommend scanning and repairing any underlying problems affecting your PC health and performance:
- Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (RegCure Pro for Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Win XP, Vista – Microsoft Gold Certified).
- Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
- Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.
Setting up weekly (or daily) automatic scans will help prevent system problems and keep your PC running fast and trouble-free.
So, what can you do to fix this? We'll show you how below.
Registry errors generally occur when new programs are installed over old ones without the old programs being completely uninstalled. This can cause registry pile-ups and error messages. Another potential cause of these error messages can come from malicious software such as adware, spyware, and viruses.
Automatic Solution #1 - Download and Install RegCure Pro
After the Download is Complete, Install the Program by clicking 'Run' or 'Yes'
After RegCure Pro is opened, click on the 'System Scan' tab
When the Scan is complete, simply choose 'Fix All' and you're all done!
Solution Step #2 - Download and Install Plumbytes Anti-Malware & Anti-Spyware Security Tool
This is a great second step for additional protection on your PC.
Sometimes, your computer will be running slowly because of spyware, adware and malware that you didn't even know you had. This is why we always recommended running a thorough scan to check.
Click here to Download Plumbytes
Choose 'Yes' and then click on 'Save' or 'Run'
After installed, Plumbytes will open, and you will choose the 'System Scan' tab. Run a full system scan and examine the results. If threats are detected simply choose 'Fix Threats'
That's it, you're finished. Your computer will now be protected from any further Spyware, Malware and Adware.
Check That All Device Drivers are Current in order to Prevent Hardware Conflicts
A driver is a software that helps the computer’s hardware and software communicate with each other. Updating device drivers is easy. Visit your computer manufacturer’s website and look for your computer model. Once you find it, look for the latest device drivers. Download all of them. Install them one-by-one and restart when prompted. You can also use third-party software like DriverAgent to update all drivers without much effort. This will ensure that all of your PC's drivers are up to date and running smooth.
