Ie Extremely Slow To Load, Norton Av Shut Down

Question: Ie Extremely Slow To Load, Norton Av Shut Down

IE takes a very long time to load home page, 20 to 30 minutes. Once loaded it works fine. Norton Anti-virus was also turned off when I started the computer and I couldn't get it to work. Actions taken: 1. Tried to reload Norton AV with new definitions via internet connection. This failed and program would not work. My subscription ends in 15 days but should still be valid. 2. Uninstalled Norton.3. Ran Spybot in SAFE mode. No problems found. 4. Ran Ccleaner.5. Ran Ad-Aware. No problems found. 6. Loaded AVG, ran AVG. No problems found. 7. Downloaded Firefox. Works fine as a browser.8. Ran McAfee Stinger. No problems found. What am I to do? I would really like to get IE working again and I think I might have some malware. I don't care about fixing Norton, will use AVG from now on. Thanks for looking at this.

Preferred Solution: Ie Extremely Slow To Load, Norton Av Shut Down

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I run both IE 8 and Firefox on my Dell Dimension system. I'm having problems now with both browsers taking forever to load. This may be a virus or network problem. IE 8 just loaded now after 15 minutes (exactly - I timed it).

Details:
- Once it's loaded once, both browsers load in normal amounts of time.
- I haven't downloaded any new add-ons lately unless one browser or the other installed one in the background.
- The problem just started today after a reboot.
- I've also noticed that my network icon in the taskbar doesn't show up anymore when I first boot but by the time IE opens, it has showed up.
- Using ipconfig, I did determine that I am on the network and connected immediately after boot up (router also shows me connected immediately).
- I've tried running IE from the command line with iexplore.exe -extoff. It didn't make any difference. I don't know if this works with IE 8 though.
- When I click to open either web browser, the process shows up right away in Task Manager and remains.
- I have all the latest updates to both browsers that I know of.
- I've run a complete system scan with McAfee (fully updated as of today.)

Now I've run out of ideas on what to try. I appreciate any help!

Thanks!
Alec

I am having problems shutting down/restarting my computer. I have run Spybot, Adaware, and my Norton Virus Scan, and nothing shows up. But, my computer still takes close to 5 mintes or sometimes more to shut down. A error message regarding the closing of a program (the one with the button asking you to cancel or end program now) pops up, but it is only for a split second and I cannot read the program name. However, sometimes an error message that reads SMaxPNP pops up. I have already been declared clean in the HijackThis Forum.

Thanks for any help

I have a Dell Inspiron 600m. Recently, shut down takes forever. All right, between three and five minutes. (It feels like forever.) Boot takes too long, as well. It seems to take an inordinate amount of time to load drivers and such.

In addition, there are times when the system dramatically slows, but the processor is not running at 100 per cent. Other times, it is running at 100 per cent, but most is taken up by the system idle process.

I have defragmented the hard drive. I have run Spybot, Ad-aware, Secure Clean, and CleanUp! I have removed several programs that weren't all that important to me. The number of photographs is not that great. There is very little, if any music. (The original .wav files are there, but nothing downloaded.)

The Event Viewer has no alerts.

So, any suggestions?

Thanks.

Cas

Earlier today, my PC went from being perfectly fine to being extremely slow. I had a hunch that it may have been a virus or some serious malware so I tried to open up Malware and Ad-aware but everything was 'not responding.'

I ended up powering off via holding button. When I tried to load up again, the PC loaded to the blue welcome screen, but from there, it just hanged. i could open task manager but I was unable to open file > new task or anything.

I was able to go into safemode and load up Malware and Ad-aware. I searched on the internet from my laptop about what could be causing this. I found that a virus named Nimda could be a culprit. I found a fix for it so I cancelled my scans and rebooted. This time, I let it sit there. Everything had loaded properly...35min later! From here, everything was very slow.

I tried to open certain things like start menu or my computer, and it ended up taking 2-3min for each action.

Also, task manager (even opening task manager took 4min alone) showed very low CPU usage (about 1-2%) and about 20% physical memory usage.

My computer specs:
Win7 x64
Intel Core2 E7200
4 gigs of RAM
ATI HD4870

So here I am, back in safemode, attempting to run the scans (using Malware bytes + ad-aware + spybot) on 2 of my harddrives.

If this does not work, does anyone have any advice or insight?

Thanks, I appreciate it!

Even after this, I tried to open certain things like start menu or my computer, and it ended up taking 2-3min for each action.

Answer:WinXP extremely slow to load

My laptop has the following specs, and it's about a year old, running Windows 7 Ultimate, 64 bit.

4 GB RAM
2.4 GHZ Core 2 Duo P8600

My desktop is 5 and a half years old, running Windows 7 Professional, 32 bit.

2.5GB RAM (PC3200)
3.4GHZ Pentium IV

Yet, when it comes to loading Windows, my desktop is blowing it out of the water.

My laptop takes 2 and a half minutes to get to the desktop (and a a large majority of that time is spent before I even log in!), compared to only about a minute for my desktop. Here is some additional information.

1) Malwarebytes and Norton Security Suite come up perfectly clean. Highly doubt it's spyware-related.
2) I updated all of the drivers on the laptop.
3) When it comes to loading all of the stuff on the desktop, the desktop has more tasks to load on the system tray than the laptop does, but at least the laptop is fine loading AFTER logging in.

Programs launched when logging into desktop:

-Malwarebytes
-Norton Security Suite
-ATI Catalyst Control Center
-CMedia Xear 3D Sound Configuration
-HP Digital Imaging Monitor
-Local Internet Connection Icon
-Volume Icon

Programs launched when logging into laptop:
-Norton Security Suite
-Wireless Icon
-Volume Icon
-Power Icon

So, there's hardly any stress on the laptop to load the programs.

4) I ran chkdsk /f on the machine, and here's the log I dug out from the Event Viewer.

The type of the file system is NTFS.

Answer:Windows 7 Extremely Slow to Load

You may want to take a look at all your startup items, using the appropriate startup manager. There are many more items launched at startup...than you see reflected in your summary, including Windows files and drivers.Unfortunately, I have not really familiarized with my Win 7 install and can't suggest a startup manager, other than from XP experience.AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx. If you use, please read the instructions beforehand...the typical startup items will be reflected on the Logon tab.Louis

As stated in the topic title, my webpages load extremely low. I've tried 3 browsers: IE, Chrome and Firefox, but none of them seem to make any difference.

My laptop is a Dell XPS 15 with a Intel Centrino wireless-n 1030, and according to my laptop, fully updated.

My main pc works perfectly, so it has probably nothing to do with my internet connection. And downloading on my laptop works also perfectly with a speed of 2 megabytes per second, but yet pages load slow...

First I thought it was my Bitdefender Antivirus, but after removing it and installing Kaspersky (due to its high rating), the problem persists.

I hope someone can solve my problem, as I find it really annoying and time-consuming.

If additional information should be neccesary I will gladly post it.

Thanks in Advance,

PS: Sorry for my inadequate command of English
 

Answer:Webpages load extremely slow

The slowness is the same with either a wireless or ethernet connection?

....this pretty much sums it up. I did a scan disk, installed a new virus protection (avast), ccleaner, ran new scans and nothing seems to work. Before I resort to the likely inevitable solution (restoring back to factory settings), anyone want to try and see if we can fix this without having to wipe out the hard drive?

I came home to and found my mother upset because her Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit laptop had suddenly become extremely slow. She had tried shutting it down, but it isn't shutting down right. THe task bar and icons disappear, but the background stays and it just stays there, like it was in a coma. So I had t restart it with the start button. It booted up in a reasonable time, and I was able to bring up task manager, but then everything slowed way way down. Chrome was basically frozen, as was every other program. I can only run the thing in safe mode.
I'm kind of tech savvy, ran a system restore and chkdsk/r. She ran antivirus programs. Nothing helped. I checked to see if she had any recent downloads. She said she hadn't and she doesnt visit many 'dangerous' websites. I'm kind of out of options, so I turn to you.

Answer:Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit Suddenly extremely slow, wont shut down

Welcome to the forums!

Well, first thing I would do for sure is run Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware. Then a deep scan with your A/V. Even if she did it already, do them again so you KNOW. I would also recommend using Malwarebytes anti-rootkit. Its still in Beta but I've been using it since it came out with no problems. (A run with Ccleaner wouldn't hurt either)

After that run a sfc/scannow to check and repair corrupted system files. Heres a link to a tutorial if you haven't done that before :SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

So I made my computer about 6 months ago, and just recently I've noticed that whenever I try to open a folder, it slows and takes at least 15 seconds (which is longer than my boot time). This also happens when I attempt to attach an item through a browser, and the browser freezes until the folder opens.

First I'd like to say that I've read help on some problems in these forums, and am always shocked at the actual help that you guys give out (you know, most forums dont actually help anyone). So, now I come here with my own problem, that I have yet to find.

My flash videos are loading extremely slow. I have a 180kb/s connection (not sure what the actual feed SHOULD be, this is what I have noticed the max is), which is extremely slow by todays standards, but a few months ago the exact same videos loaded perfectly fine for me to view non-stop (for instance, any youtube video set at 360p). The videos seem to load for a couple seconds then pause, then buffer, then repeat the steps again. It is getting extremely annoying to have to watch bits and pieces of videos instead of one continuous film.

I've found the TCP optimizer on here dealing with another issue. I have also found a batch file for winsock fix. Both seem to help the issue for a few hours, then the problem begins to crop up again. I have tried running firefox with only the essential add-ons enabled (java, etc). I also am an avid user of CCleaner, and use that at least weekly to keep my laptop 'cobweb' free. I even have disabled all anti-virus and firewalls in hopes that, that was the problem.

The problem has persisted in Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Firefox, so I'm starting to believe that its not just a browser issue. I also run uTorrent, and that mysteriously gets an incredibly... Read more

Answer:flash videos load extremely slow

Hello Evan, I'm sorry to hear that you are having problems.
The first order of business is to immediately turn your anti-virus and firewall back ON. These shouldn't be causing any problems, and it is highly unsafe to have them turned off. You should actually run your antivirus program a.s.a.p. to make sure there isn't any malware slowing your computer down. Run windows update and install all available updates, and restart to complete them. It may seem too simple, but you'd be suprised how often a lapse in these updates can cause problems with all kinds of things. Also, have you checked to see if you have the most up-to date flash player? Try uninstalling and re-installing it.

I have a new Dell Dimension Desktop that came with Windows Vista Home basic. At first everything was fine, but now it is running EXTREMELY slowly. I thought maybe it could be infected with a virus or something, so I ran a scan with Norton security. The scan came back and didn't find anything, not even one cookie, so I know it didn't scan properly. Then a thing came up and said Norton needed to download updates, so I clicked OK to get the updates. However, my computer will NOT download them! The connection either times out or the updates get to a certain point, about 65%, and then just never finish. Why can't I download the updates? Why is Vista so slow? Its driving me CRAZY!!!

Answer:Extremely Slow Operation With Vista. Also, Will Not Download Updates For My Norton Security

Hello!

Sorry to hear about that. I work for Tier 3 at T-Mobile, and we handle all the data aspects of the company. 80% of our business is working with laptops/desktops and a lot of calls coming in are on Vista. What I, and my co-workers have personally noticed is that Windows Vista Home Basic, is crap. That's the clean, unfiltered truth. I personally have Home Premium, and I've had my fair share of problems with it, but I can just imagine the thousands of frustrated people with Basic. So, I highly recommend downgrading (in my opinion upgrading) to XP Pro. If that's not an option, upgrade to Premium. If that's not an option you can look at all the different settings to see if you can smooth things up a bit.

First, check Start - then type in MSCONFIG in the search box. Then, go to the services tab. Click on the box listed "hide all microsoft services". Then, disable all. This will disable all services from running besides microsofts that are required to run your comp. You can browse through the list for spyware and anti-virus that you want to run. Then, go to the startup tab and disable all there, and again, go through the list to see if theres anything specific you really want/need to startup when your comp starts up. Then click ok, and restart. This will make it so your computer doesn't load unneccasary programs at startup that can make your computer lag. I believe vista automatically has defrag set up to do it in the background, but just in case you can do i... Read more

I have a new y410p on Windows 8.1 that has been running perfectly.Recently though, a small problem occurs randomly. Sometimes when I go to shutdown the laptop everything will shut down and the screen will go off, but the hard drive or "laptop power" led is still staying on and the keyboard illumination stays on until I hold the power button and manually shut off.After this, it will take a long time to load to windows login screen, much longer then normal. Also, when it first loads windows it takes a much longer time to boot up all the programs at start-up, along with opening browser / games / applications for the first time.After I get it loaded up again from this occuring, it usually seems fine again, shuts down in a matter of 5-10 seconds and boots to windows login in 5-10 seconds again.Any idea why this is?

Just to verify, do you get the same issue If you boot in Safe Mode?
 
If the PC shuts off normally in Safe Mode, there's most likely a background service/app that's not ending properly in normal mode. To isolate this, perform a clean boot and observe in normal mode.
 
If the problem remains in Safe Mode and you have a 1TB+24GB SSD configuration, consider checking if Expresscache is working correcrly by typing eccmd -info on an elevated command prompt. You should see a result similar to this picture.
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
 
Regards

Answer:Norton slow to load on startup

Try unplugging the CD-ROM. My old system used to do this every time it booted from cold. it was searching for a disk in the CD. problem was made worse if there was a disk in it. was no prob if i restarted/reset. prob went away when I shifted the CD off the same IDE cable as the HDD.

Hi,

I've owned Norton 2006 for quite a while and it takes so long to finish loading and for the green check mark to appear saying everything is OK. I can use other programs while Norton loads but it slows them down until Norton finishes. I also have Norton 2008 for my other computer, and it loads 10 times faster.

Is this only because Norton 2006 is an older version and normally takes longer, or is there anything I can do to make it faster or as fast as Norton 2008. Also, is there a way to update Norton 2006 to Norton 2008 without having to buy another copy of 2008?

Thanks for your help!

Answer:Norton 2006 Slow Load And Startup Times

You will have to have a different key in order to update Norton.Instead of paying for the update, you could try free antivirus and firewall programs.A list of recommended programs can be found here: Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Appshttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic3616.htmlThere is no one size fits all when it comes to computer security. What works well on one computer may not play nice on another system. On the system with 2006, when did it start to slow load? Was it fast loading in the past? It's possible that for some reason Norton has decided not to play nice with the computer. The programs in the link above are all excellent ones you can try. If you choose one and you don't like it, it can easily be uninstalled so you can try another one. No money lost or wasted.

Hello all!

I'm sorry I have to bother you guys about this, but I really do not know what to do on my own. My computer was recently hit by some popups from Internet Explorer, and eversince then it has been EXTREMELY slow. The internet is not exactly slow, but everything else about the computer is. Starting up the computer takes forever, loading up programs, you name it. The computer itself is not even that slow, and never performed this bad, so I am sure this problem is virus/malware related. I also have been forced to use Mozilla eversince the popup barrage from IE, which I have never exactly liked. Anyways, here is the HiJackThisLog below. Thanks again in advance!

My favorite rig, the HP laptop mentioned in my specs, takes over 5 minutes to hibernate and anything between 5 and 10 minutes to shut down.

Clearing Page File when shutting down is disabled as this is often mentioned to be the culprit for long shut down times.

Absolutely no other issues. Laptop boots quite fast, wakes up from sleep and hibernation in seconds. Runs smoothly, is in every sense a dream machine for me. Running Seven Ultimate, SP1 not yet installed, all other updates OK.

Malware scans come back with nothing, Event Viewer shows nothing special. The only other issue, although very small and one that does not bother me, is a 5 to 10 second freeze when opening a new tab in IE9; whole machine freezes, mouse and kb do not respond, if watching streaming video it stops, until the new tab is opened.

When hibernating or shutting down the HD spins all the time it takes to finally shut down or go to sleep. When shutting down, Windows goes in seconds to Logging off screen, which then stays several minutes. After that, the Logging off text on screen changes to Shutting down, which also takes several minutes.

Any ideas welcome.

Kari

Answer:Extremely long shut down & hibernate

I seem to recall those issues being caused by processes that won't stop until some timeout limit is met. Sometimes an external device or network connection is working.

You can test the easy stuff by disconecting any external devices, then any network connections and shut down.

Otherwise there is the mind-numbing task of going into task manager and turning off individual processes and shutting down to test until you find the offending process (you can do them 3 or 5 at a time to speed thing up).

Once you know what process is causing the delay you can deduce what device or program is the cause and work from there.

ok this is gonna be a bit long but i want the details there. the issue pc is my old pc. it has windows 7 its an asus msn-la motherboard i cloned this drive and used it in my new pc. after a few months my new pc's drive died and i took the old drive from the issue pc(witch was not giving issues at this time) and stuck it into my new pc until my replacement drive came. when i got the replacement drive i cloned the drive again onto the replacement drive and then put the new drive in the new pc had no issues there. put the old drive back into the issue pc (this is when issues started) the pc booted up to the windows desktop loading screen fast but once it got there it sat there for like 5 min before loading into windows. once it loaded into windows it was un usable for around 10 min while it loaded background stuff. once it finally loads into windows if i try to open anything its still responding extremely slow. is there anything i could do to fix this or is this going to me a re install only situation? i did try to use a windows 7 disk to do a startup repair but it claimed i couldn't do it because i dident install from that disk.

Google Chrome has become slow to load and then it is very slow loading web pages and navigating round web sites.
From previous experience I thought this may be due to a virus but Malwarebytes has found nothing.

Googled this and found that if genuine it is part of Windows installer

I recently reformatted my Toshiba laptop that I use for gaming. I'm pretty good with keeping viruses, adware, spyware, etc off of my computer; so this problem really confuses me.

Problem: When I do the normal shut down/power on option my computer takes massive amounts of time to start up. It gets to the desktop screen fairly quick, but loading basic programs and connecting to the internet takes roughly 10 full minutes. When I hibernate to turn off my computer the start up time is basically 30 sec (as it should be with this computer)

Also, I don't have many programs flooding my start up. Just the basics needed to run a healthy computer. Thank you for your support.
 

Answer:Extremely long start up times when I shut down/power on but not when I use hibernate

Re: Extremely long start up times when I shut down/power on but not when I use hibern

You said you only have the basics running. What all is present in the task manager? What anti-virus program are you running?

Try watching the task manager as soon as you can get it open to see what is slowing things down.

During copying files even small size (Say about 500 MB), Windows 10 suddenly drops speed after about 30 seconds to 10 KBPS and then many times to Zero. This transfer process thus becomes extremely slow and along with that the whole laptop becomes extremely slow - Example during transfer to open My Computer takes 3 minutes to open and finally the PC hangs. If no data transfer is happening the laptop works perfect but only after reboot. Once data transfer has started the whole PC slows down and works normally only after reboot.

Hi all, I am a newly employed system administrator in a company, so I don't have a lot of experience in the field.

On one of the computers of the workers, logging in into her account has become extremely slow. From when she gives in her password to when she can finally get to use the computer, it lasts about 4-5 mins. Then she can use the computer comfortably, but when she tries to use Microsoft outlook, outlook also freezes for about 5mins before she can finally get to using it.

This problem started suddenly, prior to this, the computer had been working just fine. I've defragmented, ran chkdsk, reduced the number of programs that start on bootup, stopped some services from running, but the problem is still thesame.

What I've noticed is that it happens with her account, but doesn't happen with my administrator account. Anybody familiar with such a problem? Any help will be highly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Answer:Extremely slow loggin into Domain, Microsoft Outlook very slow.

Is it just with her account, or with her computer? It sounds like she just might have a slow nic card. Run the ping 127.0.0.1 which is the harware loopback test. Maybe it is just intermittent activity, that being why it is taking so long. Also see if there is another computer on the local network segment that could be causing the problem but sputtering out junk packets. Run network monitor and see what is happening on the network. Maybe there is too much dhcp traffic, if thats the case just increase the lease time. It could be a lot of stuff but i hope i helped with some places to check.

Hello folks, first time posting here and hoping to get some help with my problem. Just FYI, I am posting this from my laptop (not the computer with the problem) seeing as that computer is almost unusable in its current state.

I'll try to be as specific as possible until I can get logged on to the other computer and get information you folks may need.

About a day ago, I was searching for mods for Skyrim. My computer had been running perfectly fine and as fast as usual since I could remember before this point. However, in the midst of searching, Google Chrome stopped responding. I tried to start the task manager with Ctrl-Alt-Del, but nothing happened, so I had to force shut down via the power button.

When my computer starts, one of the fans goes full force before anything on the screen appears, and during this restart I noticed the fan was running at that speed for a significantly longer time than usual. Sure enough, when the "Starting Windows" screen appeared, the little Windows animation didn't appear right away, maybe a minute later it finally showed up. This part of start up took about 5-10 minutes, then the screen went black with just the white mouse cursor in the middle of the screen (was movable), then finally the password entry screen appeared. After putting in the password, another 5-10 minutes went by and was followed by a black screen with a white cursor once again.

Once the computer was started it just was not running nearly as fast as it s... Read more

My dad asked me today to take a look at his computer because he said he updated to IE8 and now it doesn't work. I took a look at it, IE8 never even downloaded. There is an automatic update pop up that says there is an update available and the update is IE8. I would guess this is where he tried to download it from. But before I got to figuring that issue out I noticed that his computer was incredibly slow, the word slow would probably be an understatement. It takes almost 5 minutes for the computer to fully load on start up and shut down is almost as long. I decided to download and run spybot, ad-aware, MBAM, HJT, and another one I think was called regsupreme (icon says jv16 PowerTools). I ran them all they all came up with a ridiculous number of issues I deleted an rebooted every time. I deleted many of the tool bars I noticed along with anything else that looked silly and useless. I checked the memory and only 17GB had been used out of 180GB and it seems like there is something else still slowing it down after deleting all the junk. There was no improvement in performance at all after all of this. It seems like the computer is just working way to hard for small tasks, even if you let it do nothing it sounds like the computer is busy doing something strenuous.

Hey everyone.

So my PC began acting up and I have a feeling it started when I was looking for video editing software and came across a video editor called "softonicdownloader_for_Windows-live-movie-maker.exe" I'm sure it's a virus or something because problems with my PC began shortly after getting this.

#1 Desktop and start menu programs won't respond. Can be clicked and the arrow with hourglass will show up, but with no response. Sometimes clicking on them will freeze and lock up.

Hello,
Today, I was messing around with a PS2 emulator (PCSX2) on my computer, and when I decided to restart the computer to move some files (the file explorer was saying "this folder is in use by another program"), my computer took a whopping three minutes to boot! When I was finally in Windows, the file explorer was very slow (I had to refresh each time I moved something), the desktop had the same problem, the trash bin took about 5 minutes to respond, and the shut down button didn't work anymore. These problems all started at one moment, and haven't occured before. Other things like the internet and games worked just fine. Since, I've restarted a couple of times and come across to solutions for pretty much each individual problem. But I haven't come across a solution for all of these problems at once.
I built this system myself, about a month ago. My specs are: Intel i5-6500, Sapphire RX480 Nitro+ OC 4G, 8GB Crucial RAM, MSI B150M Mortar, Crucial BX200 240GB SSD (Windows is installed on this drive) and a 1TB WD Black Caviar HDD. If you need any other specs, I'm happy to provide. I am at a loss as to what to do!

Answer:Slow boot, slow file explorer, slow trash bin and no shut down

Welcome to the TenForums.

If you could describe messing around. Were you dual booting to this emulator or did you visualize it within Windows?

If in Windows, assuming you have restore points enabled, I would perform a system restore to an earlier time.

Assuming that goes well I would look at Macrium Reflect to Image your system , at least your boot drive. You can run regularly so you versions of your boot drive.

If you were dual booting let the forum know.

I am having system performance issues on my desktop machine. I have traced the cause to one of the instances of svchost.exe, which is typically taking more than 80% of the CPU and frequently up to 100%. I have a process monitor app (System Explorer) which shows that when this problem occurs, the instance of svchose.exe that is causing the problem invariably is hosting two executables that are part of the Windows Mouse & Keyboard Center. As shown by the process monitor, the relevant fragment of the process tree is as shown below:

svchost.exe -k netsvcs
taskeng.exe { very long alpanumeric string. A class ID?}
ipoint.exe
itype.exe​
The excessive CPU load is attributed the svchost.exe. The "children" typically show zero load.

I also have a laptop, and when I examine the process tree on that machine, I also find the same svchost.exe as the parent of the same children, but the CPU loading on that machine shows zero CPU load for the entire stack, except for times when I am moving the mouse around, when ipoint.exe shows a few flashes of non-zero load (typically 0.1%, which is neglibible).

So, something is clearly amiss on the desktop. The question is what, and what can be done to remedy the problem?

Hello. 
 
I recently moved to a new apartment, and had Comcast Internet set up. This was a few weeks ago. 
 
Since day 1, I've been having troubles loading web pages. With regularity, my connection speed would seem to slow to a crawl, and pages would either load very slowly or not at all.  Most times (but now always)  No "no connection"  error will pop up on chrome, the pages just perpetually load. Then other times, things will load just time. It's about 50/50.
 
At first I assumed this was just horrible Comcast connection speeds, but I noticed that my phone would load things fine on WiFi alone even when my laptop was having trouble. My roommates have also had no problems on their laptops. In fact, my temporary solution to this problem has been to tether my phones WiFi connection through my laptop whenever I'm having problems, and this has worked always. 
 
So the problem seems to be rooted to my laptop. The sporadic nature of the issues has made it tough to troubleshoot, but I've learned that when the issue appears ...
 
1. I cannot ping any websites
2. the issue happens across all browsers
3. The built-in windows network troubleshooter detects no issues
 
I am running Windows 10 on my HP Envy m6 sleekbook.

Having a problem that just started today. Internet Explorer -- in fact any new window using the Internet -- now takes an extremely long time to load, as much as 2 minutes.

I'm using XP. Outlook e-mail works fine and does not have the long load time. This is just occurring with Internet Explorer. Eventually, my homepage will load (I've even tried changing homepages, and the long load time still occurs).

Also, once I'm in Internet Explorer -- after about two minutes -- when I attempt to open another IE window, the same thing happens -- again, a load time for the contents of the new window of about 2 minutes.

This is a new problem that only began occurring this morning. I can't really identify or think of anything I did differently that might cause this new aggravation.

Would anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Hello.

Win XP Pro SP3
Pentium D CPU @ 3.00 GHz
1G ram

This machine is on a server-based network in a nonprofit. I am the "IT person" but frankly, I am not an IT professional... I'm in charge of it simply because I have some basic "do it yourself" skills!

The machine was running very slowly for the past week, with hangs that lasted from 30 seconds to a few minutes, but always did come back. Shut down was taking over 2 minutes; restart was taking nearly 5 minutes. Programs such as MS Word 2003 opened very slowly. Our employee who uses this didn't mention all this to me until...

During an MS auto update this past Wednesday, when XP rebooted to add 11 updates, the machine hung entirely. It took 6 hours before the first update was installed, then sat another 2 hours showing "2 of 11" and "do not turn off or restart your machine."

I contacted MS and after heehawing around for a while, the person said to go ahead and do a hard shut down. It rebooted, slightly faster, and did not hang again, so last night, I was able run Ccleaner, then Spybot Search and Destroy and Malwarebytes. No malware. The machine normally runs Vipre Enterprise (which will show as SBEAgent in the log below); the Vipre log for the past three days for the machine is clean.

What would be a safe running temp for an i7 and is 73 degrees too hot? The system is liquid cooled

Answer:PC shut down under load

If you ask me 73° isn't too bad, but let's see if we can bring it down a little. If you have over-volted the CPU, try lowering the voltage just a touch. It might still be stable on a slightly lower voltage, & the good side-effect is usually lower temps.It wouldn't hurt to keep the GPUs a little cooler too, so adjust their fans so they kick in sooner &/or spin faster. You may get a little more noise, but at least they may not shut down as often. G

In the process of installing the new hardware, a couple concerning things happened. I had a tough time getting the 24 pin PSU-mb connector in and I feared damaging the connector on the mb side. I also had trouble with routing the SATA power supply cords to the hard drives, and had to pinch the connectors pretty tight against the wires they were connected to to squeeze them through parts of the frame inside. They are not squeezed in their connected position however.

But everything seemed to work great for a while. Both my new video card and PSU seemed to help my system. But after a while I started noticing things were getting slow, clicks not registering, any web browser locking up frequently. The problem got a little worse over time and now things load incredibly slow, though when they load they can run smoothly for a bit of time and then abruptly freeze again. Startup often takes a minute and shutdown can take sometimes more then 10. I often have to press the power button on the case due to a locked up program and then wait a very long time.

I checked my sensors with 2 different programs and they both show me consistently getting 2.128 volts on the 3.3 rail. I went back to my old vid card to see if the problem was the new one all along, no luck. I tried disconnecting and reconnecting all the PSU connectors, still no luck.

Initially some plenty of weeks ago (2-4 months), when IE11 hangs began, I thought it was my laptop's mouse faulty. Changed 3 of them to use, changed batteries,  initally seemed to resolve IE 11 hang problems. Subsequently, doesn't seem changing mouse was the way. 
 
Now I am writing this page using Chrome Browser. The IE11 appears to be istalled, but cannot find the browser ICON to launch. Strangely there is a Internet Options dialog bix which can be clicked, launched to set up the various IE options. But the browser no where to be found for launch.
 
Oer the last 20 days or so, I have been surfing many websites, and doing downloads of many Android OS ROMS.

Personally I would uninstall norton and let xp look after itself without relying on 3rd party software.In the past norton utilities and crash guard have caused as many problems as purported to have fixed.

I am running Windows ME and fairly recently obtained Broadband Access via Openworld. Being sensible (so I thought) I installed Norton Anti Virus 2003. Now the machine only shuts down properly about 10% of the time. I have to switch the mains off, frequently without the "You can now switch your computer off" message. It is not infrequent that Scandisk then fires up on restarting.I have been to my local 'shop' who can demonstrate there is no problem on their premises but as soon as I connect up at home it refuses to close down. Any ideas?

Answer:Shut down problem - Norton Anti Virus?

There are any number of reasons why shutdown problems arise. Worse still is the number of occasions when shut down takes forever. Bear in mind that Windows has to shut down everything that is loaded, including a large amount of file re-writes as part of the shut down process - you could find that your successful shutdowns coincide with shorter switched on times (like when you took the PC back to the shop??).When was the last time you defragged your HD. I had a 98SE system which took over 4 minutes to shut down when I installed DirectX 8.0, and I could only resolve the problem by a complete re-installation of Windows, which reduced the shutdown time to less than 20 seconds. If all else fails, this could be the time for you to restart

Hi, I hope you guys can provide help.

Yesterday, while I was downloading some songs on Limewire ( I know I shouldn't have been on there but I was desperate for some new tunes) Internet Explorer was updating and wanting me to restart. I selected later and carried on.

After restarting my computer is totally slow and sluggish. Explore takes an extremely long time to load but once up seems to run at a normal speed.

I unloaded Limewire (I know that's like closing the gate after the cattle are out but...) and removed the update on Explorer. No change. I reinstalled the update . no change. Tried to roll back to a couple of days ago. No change.

I think that I must have picked up something from Limewire.

Please help. My computer is unuseable in this state.

Answer:extremely slow pc, with CPU at 0%

Anything i can do in the mean time to at least not have to boot up in safe mode? I've ran every scan that i have, to no avail. Malwarebytes, Eset, Adwcleaner,and Spybot S+D.If i'm not in safe mode now, i have about 5-10 minute window of opportunity before a rapid exponential lagging occurs. Within a minute or so after it starts, it can take up to 5 minutes just to close any internet tabs or documents/folders that are open. Until all visible progression stops completely. Then again i've only waited for a couple hours to see if "My Documents" or Opera/Firefox will open,before pressing the power button. The mouse cursor still moves around though. I have winpatrol and it doesn't list anything "active" that i know of that would pose a problem. However, there is a dirty little virus/malware/hijacking something or other that poses as Adobe Flash installer or updater. Luckily winpatrol lets me know when it pokes its ugly nose where it doesn't belong, but the only way i have been to tell that it is not genuine is that it won't take no for an answer and continues to open the install window or winpatrol startup notification. In the past, when i have clicked yes, my whole system gets munched and taken over by this little monster. This is the main culprit besides google redirect virus that have given me issues to be dealt with. This is the longest my pc has gone without starting to drag its feet.

A few days ago I decided to reinstall Win XP Pro to clean up my system.
The result was horrifying!

My system now runs very slowly! All program startups takes more than 30 seconds og my mailprogram (Eudora 6) takes more than 4 minutes to start! That can't be right!
I have tried Adaware with newest update, Spybot search and destroy with newest update. I have removed q811493 security update. I have installed all others including sp1, which btw took more than 2 hours to install!
I tried services.msc and removed ALL services I didn't need according to BlackViper. I tried BootVis (although I wasn't neccesary. The boot time is not that long). I tried sfc /scannow. I tried sigverif. Still nothing!
My Taskmanager always says 100% cpu usage but it is different programs. Am I starting a program the mem usage meter slowly fills while the program gets ready to start.
It seems like it is the move fra HD to Ram that slow my system down especially after I tried to move some date from my 20 Gb drive to my old 6Gb drive. After that the system was really slow. Why is that?
I haven't tried to reformat. I was hoping to avoid that!
My computer is a Athlon XP 1700, 512 Mb 2700 Ram, 20 Gb IBM disc drive, 6 gb IBM disc drive.

BTW how can I change my bootdrive from the old 6 Gb drive (C-drive) to my newer 20 gb, which is two 10 Gb partitions?

Please help! I am desperate!

Thanks in advance

Answer:Extremely slow Win XP Pro!!

What program is it that is taking 100% CPU time?
If you can tell me that we might be able to find out why its going so slow.
If you press ALT+CTRL+DEL
then click on Processes.
Arrange by CPU
Then see what program is using the highest cpu time

Question: Extremely slow pc

Hello,

I have been dealing with another forum within tech support guy regarding my problem and they have advised that I post my hijack this and malware bytes logs here to see if someone can figure out what is causing my laptop to perform so sluggishly.

As for the problem at hand, here is a synopsis. My laptop takes between 5-10 mins just to boot up. Once it has started, it is very slow. The task manager shows CPU usage in the high 80-90's the majority of the time even when system idle is 80-90. Something is causing it to shoot up but it is not appearing in the task manager. At times system idle will be 90 and CPU usage will be in the 70-100 range which makes no sense at all.

In the previous forum they found that I was running too many programs at start up so they suggested that I disable most programs with the exception of microsoft ones and see if that helps. There is very little running at start up now and still slow.

They then suggested that I run the malwarebytes program which i did and it came up clean.

They have now suggested that I post both hijack this and malware bytes logs in hope that someone might have an answer to my problem.

Please see below and thanks in advance.
