Updating a slow computer
Again, consider the situation, that you are having problems with one of your hard disks and there are chances that it is corrupted. When we format our hard disk for the first time, we select one of the file allocation systems, FAT or NTFS.Maybe the reason is a computer virus, but scanning a corrupted drive, can only further complicate the process of recovering the data later. Of course, if you are using Linux, then you will be using ext1, ext2, ext3, etc.make changes to the PC’s registry and after reboot Windows runs the PC with the new registry entries.( This is not necessarily the same as a Reset, in which case the BIOS data may not be reloaded.) It comes down to organizational skills and discipline.How often do you feel frustrated with your computer acting up, being slow, freezing up?This list does not cover all the reasons, but when it comes to personal computers it should give you a head start on understanding what causes slow performance – specifically for Windows-based machines. There are lots of explanations, definitions, and plain nonsense.You should get some useful tips (and we’ll use a common-sense approach when discussing them.) What is a Boot? Some are great valid technical definitions hard to digest for someone not involved in IT. First of all, Boot and Reboot is the same as Start and Restart. Boot/Start is when you turn your computer ON after it was off for a while.Reboot/Restart is when your computer was already on, and you are manually choosing to reboot it again.
Use cold reboot only if all else fails – improper shutdown is the main cause of disc corruption, and should not be commonly used.
Boot/Start process loads an operating system and starts the initial processes, from the powered-off state.
Reboot/Restart process is usually required after activities that affect functionality: installing, uninstalling, implementing Windows updates, etc.
And sometimes that “later” takes place A LOT later.
In the meanwhile, there is some unfinished business going on within the PC, especially when multiple updates, patches, and ignored restart requests are being mounted on top of each other.
