How to edit the Registry using Command Prompt on Windows 10

Aside from your Windows operating system, drivers and apps should be kept up to date too. Again, this is good for both security and performance. If you think you might have missed an update, a quick online search should tell you which version you should be using. Similar to programs running in the tray, other programs that automatically run on startup can slow down your computer. Some you may actually want to run, such as antivirus software, but others may be unnecessary. Regular users may wait for the fix to be included in the Patch Tuesday , which is set to launch on December 14. If you feel your device is slower than before, it is advisable to install the optional update .

When Windows 11 restarts, you’ll see a list of options. Hold the F11 key (it’s F8 or another key on some machines) while pressing Power. Windows will fully restart to enter the Windows Recovery Environment.

  • What I should have tested is to test the internet speed with different browsers.
  • Now, your PC will restart, and it will start uninstalling the update.
  • Sometimes, dll files may get deleted incidentally or intentionally.

A white list database that’s used by all the main anti-virus products would be REALLY USEFUL. Can’t see it happening riched32.dll windows 8.1 though. Have the ‘false positive’ problem with productkex.exe, which I use in the WSCC-System-Tool-Collection. Just today I found out that the tool that has recovered some of my lost files multiple times was quarantined by Bitdefender. An example with NirSoft’s ProduKey to Recover lost Windows product key, 12 engines detected this file as Unsafe or Hacktool, that’s not true. To let you know Norton360 reported “wifiInfo.exe contained hacktool” and quarantined it.

I recently made a simple program with GCC and checked on VirusTotal and found 9 detections. However, after a month I checked again on VirusTotal, the program false positives were removed except 1. And it is really hard for small developers if their program is detected as virus. Most users dont even care of the developer’s explanation. Once your application was detected by their anti-virus then they wont even bother for your application so it is another client you’ve lost. Anti-viruse companies should have a clear and easy way to report false positives and they should take action on this reports immediately. What of the companies that think there exclusive package should not be available for anti virus, malware, trojan, adware checking softwares.

Upgrading from a standard hard drive (e.g., a 5400 RPM) to a solid-state drive can drastically improves the computer’s performance. If you have already waited for a long time – say overnight – and still face this issue, then the only way out from here is to force shutdown your PC with a long press on your PC or Laptop. Then reboot, and see if your computer boots normally, and takes you to your login screen. But if it starts updating again, then we will have to use the Safe Mode to Restore Windows to a state where everything should be working fine. So assuming you are back to your account, follow these suggestions.

After install of SUR package reboot, connect to internet and do a manual Windows Update, it should work much faster now. Even after these fixes I have seen some W7 PC’s take up to an hour to finish checking for updates if launched from Control Panel manually. Because of the enormous number of possible combinations, Microsoft keeps all updates on the WU servers in the format of a humongous tree. @MichaelHampton Some folks have given you mis-information.
