Preferred Solution: Slow Slow Slow Browser, Applications Failing

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.)

Answer: Slow Slow Slow Browser, Applications Failing

How long has it been since Windows was installed? Have you done any regular file maintenance, like deleting old files you don't need anymore, deleting temp files, uninstalling programs you don't use anymore, deleting months-old system restore points, etc, and then running scandisk, and lastly, running defrag? Maybe it's not a virus. You may just be running out of room on your hdd.

Running older PC Clone 2.0 Ghz Dual CPU Pentium, 1GB Ram Win XP Home Edition system.

While navigation on Internet Explorer or Google Chrome, system runs extrememly slow and/or crashes. When using applications such as Itunes, Email, or simply opening up Word and other applications, it runs very slow and almost seems to stop. The IE7 that was on the computer had changed to an operate with add-ons off as a result of the infection. I downloaded and reinstalled IE7 and this seems to have fixed that problem for the time being. MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpy icons dissappeared from my desktop. When trying to use them from the Start / Menu options the programs no longer worked. I reinstalled them and they appear to work fine now. However, the system still seems to run very slow over all and its performance is greatly hindered.

Next, I ran free version of SuperAntiSpyware and all it detected was a couple Adware cookies. Secondly, I ran free version of Malware Bytes Anti-Malware and it detected PUP.GamePlayLab infections located in the Registry Key: HKLM\SOFTGWARE\Microsoft\Windows.... These files were removed and quarantined by MWB. Thirdly, I ran Old Timer's TFC and then rebooted the computer and it appeared to run a little faster, but still sluggish while using IE7. So, finally, I ran ESET Free Online Scanner, and it detected "Win32/Toolbar.Babylon and Win32/TopMedia.a" virus infections. Scan took about 2 1/2 hours. I set it to search the drives/ar... Read more

Hello, Tech Guy Forums!

I've got a Compaq Presario 2410 laptop running Windows XP Home Ed. (SP2) that's seen a gradual decline in performance over the past several months. Boot-up time has increased to about 5 minutes now, applications load very slowly, even alt-tabbing between two windows can take me on the order of 15 seconds. I've been running Lavasoft's Adaware compulsively, but I'm concerned that it's missing something that's causing the slowdown. I am not seeing an popup windows, but the processor seems to be working quite hard even when no programs are open.

Also, I've had a Windows Update yellow shield popping up regularly for awhile now, which is trying to install Office XP Service Pack 3, but it gets halfway through and asks for the Office XP CD, which I misplaced during my last move across the country. Office works fine (except for the overall slowdown). I have no idea if the update I can't get and the slowdown are related.

I've attached a Hijackthis log in the hope that someone here might be able to help me locate the source of my problems. I'm not literate enough to interpret everything in the log, but I do know better than to start deleting system files willy-nilly. Any help given is thoroughly appreciated!

- Tom

It takes forever to pull up Interent Explorer... and still everything is very slow in terms of reaction time to my clicking/typing. If I leave my computer on overnight, it takes a few minutes it seems to "warm up" once I try to access an application.

Any suggestions? I know this is a vague description. Thanks.

Hi there!

Straight to the point:

Tablet specifications:
- Manta Tablet PowerTab 10" HD MID1001
- CPU - Cortex A-8 1.5GHz
- GPU - Mali-400
- 3D OPEN GL V2.0
- Ram 1GB
- Android ver. 4.0.4
- compile number - crane_axmid-eng 4.0.4 IMM76D 20120803 test-keys
- kernel 3.0.8+ [email protected] #52


Problem:
- slow page load (if any!) - tested on default browser, chrome, opera, opera mini, etc etc
- no reaction for stopping loading pages


Thoughts:
- not a router problem (802.11n WPA2/AES)
- other android devices working well on that hotspot
- Google Play working well on tablet, no lags, no interference (same other online soft - skype etc)
- tried system restore, default settings, changing router settings


Techspot is my last hope. Help me!
 

Answer:Slow browser failing to load pages on tablet

Download a terminal emulator, do some pings.

Check the advanced setting for the Wifi, there may be some weird DNS entries or something.

Hi everyone. I did something very foolish which was installing a program which I knew nothing about on my laptop. Unfortunately, that program was iLivid. My computer has now been infected. My browser has been hijacked (redirecting to a weird search engine), my applications I need for work cannot be opened (Adobe Lightroom 3.4) and my computer is noticeably slower than usual.After researching about iLivid malware on the net, I have come to realize that this virus is far beyond my skills of tech know how. I greatly need the help of the tech wizards of this forum to solve my problem. Could any kind soul please aid me? I will be forever grateful to whoever does.

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top o...

Hi there,my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.Before we move on, please read the following points carefully. First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding. Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one. If you have any problems while following my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem. Do not run any other scans without instruction or add/remove software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me. Post all logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts. If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed. Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean. My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read.

Hiya... new kid on the block here. I'm suddenly experiencing multiple problems. My yahoo messenger was hijacked yesterday, I received a server certificate error today that claims someone may be eavesdropping on me, the comp is getting slower and slower, and the startup and shut down is getting longer and longer. This is a used laptop that I received with issues to begin with. I thought the issues were resolved, but instead, they keep getting worse. I'm not familiar with HJT, and don't know where to start. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance! ~Jesica

So yeah, I've these problems for the past couple days. My browsers (Opera and Firefox) used to load pages quickly, but now they're painfully slow. Opera lags and freezes often; Firefox doesn't, but it still takes a very long time to load pages.

I'm also getting these occasional "invisible ads," even when I don't have a browser open. I can hear the ads but I can't see them.

Also, I sometimes get redirected to unwanted sites. This mostly happens when I click on a search result in Google.

Here are some things I've done:

-Ran SUPERantispyware (I can post the log(s) if needed)
-Defragged hard drive
-Cleaned cache, cookies, etc. on both browsers

Answer:Help! Slow browser, slow startup, page freezes.....

Good evening. As HijackThis has not been seriously updated by Trend Micro in some time, it is now no longer considered to be an effective tool for malware removal. You will need to go here, follow steps 6, 7 and 8 and post accordingly into this thread.

NOTE: I'm currently receiving assistance from another source. I'll assume that I will get my problem fixed from them, so I guess this thread can be closed/locked. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Hi, first time posting here, so sorry if I missed anything in my post.

Both of the internet browsers I use (Opera and Firefox) have been extremely slow lately. Opera hangs and lags often; Firefox doesn't, but like Opera, it loads pages extremely slowly. I've tried cleaning the caches, cookies, temp files, etc. to no avail.

Also, I get these occasional audio ads that start playing even when no internet browser is open. I can't see the ads, but I can hear them. They last for 15 seconds or so. In addition, I sometimes get redirected to unwanted sites when I'm browsing (it usually occurs when I'm clicking on a search result in Google or something).

Everything is just running super slow man. I used to be able to put up 30 google chrome tabs and literally have them all come up. Nowadays, I put 2-3 and they're stuck loading until I actually click on them. I don't understand it and would like to restore my laptop to it's old capabilities XD But um, with google chrome, other than the really slow tabs, i have moments where if I have 2 windows up side by side (each taking up 50% of the screen), I can type on one and the laptop will "hiccup" will all of a sudden, I will start typing in the other browser....
 
Or if I'm in microsoft word, I will type 1 thing, press enter and microsoft word will start loading for 30 seconds or something... (is not responding) all over the place. Is this a virus that c--- see? I was just typing that sentence and my computer "hiccuped" and made me start typing in the other browser.. literally. It's very annoying. I could like to get rid of all the "hiccups" and "not responding" that I experience all over the place when I am on my computer if possible. It is making it very very very hard for me to study and get schoolwork done when I am afraid to type too much and have something crash or not be able to put a lot of information on my screen without having everything jump all over the place.
 
thanks for reading.

Answer:Slow Browser(s), Microsoft Word Slow as a snail.. etc.

 To help problem determination please download and run Speccy.  After running it click File -> Publish snapshot... Copy and paste the link it gives you into your next post.

Welcome aboard  You can safely let AdwCleaner delete those items.  Download Security Check from here or here and save it to your Desktop. Double-click SecurityCheck.exe Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box. A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.NOTE 1. If one of your security applications (e.g., third-party firewall) requests permission to allow DIG.EXE access the Internet, allow it to do so.NOTE 2 SecurityCheck may produce some false warning(s), so leave the results reading to me. Please download Farbar Service Scanner (FSS) and run it on the computer with the issue.Make sure the following options are checked:

For some odd reason, in the past 4 weeks, my streaming video has become VERY slow, and I do not know why. I have a high-speed cable connection, the same I have had for the past 6 months. It is slow, sound-with-stil-images and/or constantly rebuffering, and this is true with WIndows Media, Winamp, Realplayer and even Flash videos (on YouTube for example). I cannot take it anymore. I tried this Hijackthis thing, and this is my log:

Hey everyone.

So my PC began acting upa nd 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.
I deleted and uninstalled what I could, went into safe mode and ran the latest updated version of malware bytes. It got 5 infected files that were deleted.

After doing so, I had little success. Here are still the issues with the PC

#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. Sometimes they will, but it is only after several manual shut downs.

#2 Boot up is a lot slower, will stay on "Loading your personal settings". Takes longer than it usually would.

#3 Shut down is slower or will freeze. All desktop items and desktop will be clear, leaving just background, as usual before a shut down, and will freeze leaving the arrow cursor still there. Sometimes it can get past this after a wait and get stuck on the blue "Windows is shutting down" screen. And never shut down. This requires a manual shut down by pressing the PC's button.

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.

Answer:Help! Slow Computer, Slow Internet. Slow, Slow, Slow!

Hi MaryJane,Sorry for the delay, this forum is really swamped right now. I don't see any positive signs of malware in your log, although there is one thing that I am unsure about. I'll get to that in a minute.Before we do rootkit scans and use some other tools to confirm that malware is not the problem, let's do a quick check of resources.Press <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<Del> to open Task Manager, then click on the Processes tab. Place a check next to Show processes from all users. Note the numbers at the bottom, CPU usage should be running at 0 to no more than five percent if your system is idle (no background tasks running). If that is not the case, scroll down and see if any of the processes is running at a high percentage of CPU usage. On a normal system at idle the System Idle Process should show about 98 percent, meaning nothing else is using the CPU. The next columns to the right, memory usage and peak memory usage, may also show something out of line if one process is using a large amount of memory. If you see anything showing high CPU usage or high Memory usage, make a note of it.Now, click the Performance tab. The key numbers here are in the Commit Charge box -- The Total and Peak figures; and in the Physical Memory box, the Total figure. Make a note of these three numbers. I would like to see them, but I can tell you what I'm looking for: basically, any time the Commit Charge exceeds the total physical memory, Windows will have to constantly swap d... Read more

Erm hi. Last night my PC was absolutely fine, and today it seems to be completely broken.

I turned the computer on today and received a "malware detected" message from Avast antivirus. I tried to move to chest/delete and the message kept popping up. I looked up NewDot malware on the internet (which is what Avast was detecting) and it said that NewDot prevents access to the internet, which seemed about right as i was having to use my laptop to access the internet as the time, because the other computer wasn't working properly. It said that i could get rid of it easily my going to Add/remove programs and uninstalling it, which i did.

After this i restarted the computer and the loading time was exceptionally slow, i thought it had frozen, but it was just taking 5-10minutes to load. When it finally did load i tried to access the internet through a number of different browsers, but none of them would load. I tried to open some other applications too, and they wouldn't load either. I went to msconfig and disabled the majority of my startup items, and then restarted the computer. Once again the loading time was slow, and no applications would start. I then tried to do a defrag, but the program didn't work. Then i tried system restore, and the application didn't load, i came back to the computer 5-10minutes later and it had loaded, but it came up with an error that said something along the lines of "system restore is unable to protect your computer, please restar...

Answer:Slow boot, slow application loading, slow shutdown

I don't know if there's an edit option on this site, but i couldnt find it.

Anyway, i've found a website dedicated to this newdot "foistware" as it is known: http://www.cexx.org/newnet.htm

It says that deleting the .dll will result in a broken internet connection. IT also mentions that sometimes uninstalling it will still leave errors in winsock.
This seems to be what has happened to me, so i'm going to try the LSP fix utility available for download on that site. The problem is that this laptop has no floppy disk drive, and i don't have a UBS storage device available.

I was just wondering, if and when i do repair the LSP problems, could that be what is causing my system to run slowly? I hope so.

Thanks again.

Okay I'm going to do a full PC check but all my systems seem fine as of yesterday. A little background to help others help me I'm on a Windows Small Business Server 2003 environment with no other server connection but one machine, I have 3 shared drives created on the server and am running Shared Point Services 2.0 as well and all my computers on the network have a login script assigned to them when booting onto the network so their drives are automatically mapped. Oh and I have POS old Sony laptop running as a proxy using Winproxy 5.0, but it has about a gig of speed and 512 RAM and the connection goes: in from the outside, to the proxy, line directly to server, server assigns ISP's by DHCP internally.

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.

I also scanned the disk for errors (none found) last night. And, I changed the page file size so that its virtual memory is now 2500 to 3048.

I then manually updated the remaining 9 OS up... Read more

Alright, so today i replaced my dad's powersupply and got an "Error Loading OS" Message for his system when it previously had XP on it. So i said forget messing with it ill just put vista on it and call it a day.

After putting the vista disk in it seemed to go pretty slow compaired to how it was on mine. But in the end it took about 1hr to 1hr and 1/2 to install completely. After installing it took forever to do the first boot up and after it booted i could not move the mouse more than one direction every 2 minutes or so. The system would apparently freeze or become completely bogged down for no reason.

So, this is a fresh install of Vista on a fairly good machine. Any reason why it is running as though it has the worst specs in the world?

PS: It runs fine in Safe Mode.....

The System configuration is as follows:

OS: Vista Ultimate 64bit
MoBo: Asus P5NSLI
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
Graphics Cards: Nvidia 8600GT x2 SLI
Hard Drives: 3 various, one 80, one 200g, one 300g
RAM: 4gigs of corsair or something of the form.. namebrand to say the least

I Cant think of what else might help... it is doing this for NO REASON what so ever that i can find.

For a year, my computer has had no taskbar, desktop icons, and has been a real pain to deal with. I haven't gotten it fixed because i'm constantly typing papers and Word still works so i haven't had the time to get someone to look at it.

So for a year, I have been living with the computer in its taskbar-less state, constantly hitting control alt delete and the new task bar to do my business. Now the damned thing won't let me install files, programs are acting up, and everything is very slow. When I open the install file, it appears in the processes list then instantly disappear. SpyBot and McAffee scans are ineffective, and i can't download and install the programs that the tutorials say too. Any help would be wonderful. I really don't want to nuke my harddrive and lose countless files. Also, my harddrive is divided into the C drive and D drive. The C drive only gets 20 Gb, while the D drive gets 140gb . The C drive is full of stuff, and I though I had deleted all the useless stuff but it is still full. Is there anyway to get more space alloted to the C drive? HELP!

Try using the "chkdsk /f" in the run box to fix problems first. It can see if that is where you have a problem.

Hi there,
I am new here. I am also relatively new to Vista. I love XP SP2 but I got vista business with my new tablet (1GB RAM, T7250).
I have a huge problem with vista's explorer. When I use desktop search on XP and select a pdf file, it appears INSTANTLY in the preview - which is btw fully equipped adobe reader, so you can further search the file, copy from it etc.
Now in vista, when I click the file, my computer hangs for about 3 minutes, and then the file appears.
I hope this is not normal. What can be possibly wrong? I updated adobe reader but it didn't help.
So, why is it so slow? This makes the system useless for me.
Also, can I change the appearance of the reader in the preview pane so that it offers full interface, just like in XP?
Can anyone help me, please?
Thanks, skl
 

Answer:preview pane painfully SLOW SLOW SLOW

I'm not an expert, but 1GB is not a lot to be running Vista with.
Have you thought of upgrading with more RAM Memory?
I think i saw here recently that Vista can easily take up to 3GB of RAM Memory.

I just spent an hour on the phone with Dell and he's telling me I need to do a clean install of my original operating system in order to get my system back up to speed. No way I'm doing that, and I know you guys can help get things back to normal. So it is a windows problem that is making system run very, excrutiatingly slow - I mean frustratingly slow.

What should I do first? Would a hi-jack log be helpful? I am running one now to paste onto this email.

Welcome to TSF.

Your HJT log is clean. Lets take a look at one of those online scans.

Download and install CleanUp!. Do NOT run it yet.

Open Cleanup! by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu). Set the program up as follows:Click "Options..."
Move the arrow down to "Custom CleanUp!"
Put a check next to the following:Empty Recycle Bins
Delete Cookies
Delete Prefetch files
Cleanup! All Users
Click on the “Temporary Files” and uncheck the box for “Scan drives for file matching” if it’s checked.

Click OK
Press the CleanUp! button to start the program. Reboot/logoff when prompted.

WARNING - CleanUp! will delete all files and folders contained within Temporary Directories. If you knowingly have items you would like to keep that are stored in these locations; Move Them Now!!!

I'm running Windows XP with an AMD Sempron 2.0 ghz Processor with 700MB Ram.

Firefox takes up all this computer power(I know that this is more common with the updated Firefox's but in my case it's still to an extreme). Firefox will stay open after I close it and I will have to use Windows Task Manager to fully close. I've switched to Google Chrome and it is quicker.

Any Java usage slows the computer down incredibly. Even in Chrome it's slow. I can't switch between programs nearly as smoothly as before. Basically everything takes forever now and my computer seems to strain under the workload of what use to be basic usage.

I found two Trojans with Kaspersky Trial scan and I thought that fixed the problem(I eventually got rid of Kaspersky because it was making my slow computer even slower.) Unfortunately I never wrote down their names because my parent dropped me on my head frequently when I was a child.

I've run all the scans and nothing has come up(to my basic and infantile computer knowledge). One problem with the scans was the MGtools would open briefly and the window would only just flash and then dissapear and nothing would run. I blame mostly Jesus for this but Buddha in his infinite wisdom and humbleness has also taken some of the blame.

If you people could help me out that would be great.

I'm running XP Pro with 512MB memory, but all seems to have slowed to a crawl. I'm also running AdAware, SpyBot and MS anti-Virus programmes as well as AVG Virus scan--I've been told that having a number of these programmes loaded isn't a problem as long as I don't run them simultaneously, but could that be my problem.

I'd be grateful if one of the experts on forum could have a look at the log below and let me know if there's an answer within.

sorry, if this not the right place please move. I did many google searches cant seem to find the issue Im having, or maybe lack of the right key searches. You guys are my last hope.
I will try to explain my problem as clearly as I can. And so sorry about my bad grammar and spelling, trying to post this asap.

first off give small history of my PC. I bought my PC new Sept 2001. A HP Pavilion with 1.3 ghz, 256ram, and a 55gig hard-drive originally came with WinMe, since then I upgraded to XP. I kept my PC case clean, didn't try to install programs my PC couldn't handle, didn't go to any sites that knew were bad with viruses and such also had Malwareytes/spybot/avast/hijackthis to use, didnt install any toolbars, and tried not to have many programs open at the same time. I basically kept my PC simple with use.

Anyways around June I noticed some odd slowdowns
While playing Winamp and running a torrent with speeds of more than 400+ the audio would become choppy. This also happen when I would open FF, IE or any program while running Winamp, the audio would be choppy.

Extracting 700mb files from Winrar would take around 8mins

Playing Youtube, WMP, of VLC videos would be slow and choppy.

Transferring files from one PC to another over a crossover cable would take much longer. 4gigs of files would take about 20mins or so.

Virus scanners, Avast, Malwarebytes, and Spybot would also take much longer than usual.

Hi

I'm new to the forum and I'm not incredibly tech-minded, so please bear with me. Me and my partner both have laptops, mine is Vista and his is Windows 7. We have recently set up internet with Orange and have a Netgear router that they supplied. In the last few days the internet on my laptop has started disconnecting itself and has become very slow. Viewing videos on sites such as YouTube and BBC iPlayer is difficult as they struggle to buff and we recently started playing World of Warcraft which ran fine until a few days ago, now it will rarely connect and if it does, it will get stuck while loading and (for anyone familiar with the game) will eventually let me choose a realm but won't load any.

I have called a helpline, who thought it might be some corrupt software damaging my connection but the only things I have downloaded have been updates for Adobe, Java and FireFox.

I tried running IE instead of FireFox, but that runs slowly too, and will struggle to load pages. I have run the Internet Connectivity Evaluation Tool which said we aren't supported for UPnP, which can affect things like MMOs, but adding the ports necessary to play WoW did nothing and the problem is only affecting my laptop, not my partners'.

Vista has installed a couple of updates recently, which changed nothing. I have cleared my DNS cache and internet history, I tried disabling my firewall, the router has been restarted several times and reset and reinstalled as well, I began a defrag, but it said ... Read more

Answer:Slow/Failing Connectivity

Hi Napiorite,

In addition to clearing the DNS, also try resetting the winsock and see if that helps as well. Open up the command prompt and type in "netsh winsock reset". Reboot your computer and see if resetting the winsock alleviates your computer issue.

Also try pinging a website like yahoo or google and see the milliseconds time received time you get.

Hi,

My laptop was running smooth, but after returning home after 2 wks from out of town, my laptop takes around 8 minutes to completely load up. Whenever I click on any application, it takes 5 minutes to open up. All applications run really slow, videos on youtube skip even after they have completely loaded and when I play songs on my itunes they skip horribly and pause, and when I type on microsoft word theres a long delay in the words I type appearing on screen. I have over 20GB of memory available on both my C and D drive. I ran all scans on Norton 360 which I purchased after this started, but it didnt detect anything and my computer is still really slow.

I have a high-end desktop and an ultrabook, both of which run Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I have set up a RDP connection from the laptop to the desktop, and I want to use a certain application (UDK Editor) over the internet when I am away from home.

Now, in general, the frame rate and response of the RDP is poor when I run intensive applications such as 3ds Max or SolidWorks, but these programs are still usable. They just have poor frame rate (20~40 FPS) and a very slight delay in mouse response.

However, the UDK Editor program I am most interested in using is basically unusable because it takes several seconds to respond to mouse clicks and the rate at which the screen refreshes when running this program is truly awful. Everything is dramatically slower in this application for no discernible reason.

UDK is a very RAM intensive application, but I have no idea why this should matter as my desktop is more than capable of running all its features, and it has no problem streaming over applications such as SolidWorks and 3ds Max which are also rather intensive. In addition, it seems to me that it shouldn't actually matter how intensive any application is over the RDP so long as the computer running it can handle it.

I have tried to increase performance by reducing the colors to 15 bit and disabling all aesthetic features such as desktop background, window animations, and persistent bitmap caching. These are not enough to make UDK usable. I have also set RDP's autotuning to "h... Read more

Answer:RDP Extremely Slow Only on Certain Applications

Try teamviewer. It's free. RDP can be very slow in my experience. It's not good for intensive apps.
Third party programs always worked better for me in terms of ease of connection, encryption, and speed.

Another program I would consider is splashtop. Its very fast and might give you the speed you need. Unfortunately you have to pay for it.

Well, first of all I would like to say Hi to everybody... I am new to all of this and I have tons of questions I have no idea where to start.

My pc rebooted a few weeks ago, since then it has been very, very slow (over 50% of the processing resources for the simplest of tasks) I checked the processes and I have some suspicious ones (like csrss.exe or smss.exe), but when I do a little research on them, some pages say that they are Windows processes and they are OK, and other websites say they are powerful viruses and they will bring about the end of the world! I use Bullgard anti virus, I scan my pc in safe mode with that, also ad aware, i clean the registry with RegSeek, I do all I can think of to get the problem solve, but I get nothing!

I just found out about hijack this and I'm giving it a try, you'll have to excuse me for not trying that earlier, I am almost new to all of this. I was trying to get help from a spanish forum (since english is barely my 2nd lenguage) but I had to jump thrugh a lot of hoops there and I got nowhere. I'm posting my highjackthis post here, any help would much appreciated.

Until yesterday both my computers had been working quite well.

Yesterday one of them became very slow on the internet.

Both machines have IE8, Chrome and Firefox. All three browsers on the affected machine are slow to connect to the default Google page and to any subsequent pages I connect to.

Belarc's system details of the affected machine are in the attached jpg.

My i.s.p's (TalkTalk) on-line speed measurements made yesterday evening were about 4Mb/s download, and a little less than a 10th of that upload.
Measured this afternoon they were 1.5Mb/s download and about a 10th of that figure for upload.

The router speed is 12.9Mb/s

Figures for the unaffected machine (Shuttle) measured this afternoon were 10Mb/s download and 790kb/s upload.

Router speed 12.9Mb/s

The affected machine connects to the router over a l.a.n. through the a.c. supply. The icons for the l.a.n. say that its speed is 100Mb/s.

All applications on the affected machine (H.P.) seem to be working fine.

The other machine connected to the router with an ethernet cable and is working normally. Nothing untoward noticed.

I have run Maware Byte's free program and Spybot Search and Destroy Nothing found.

And ESET's on-line scanner, Trend Micro's HouseCall and Panda's on-line scanners found nothing nasty either.

So, the problem is very slow internet activity on either of the three browsers on only one of the machines.

Answer:Slow internet but applications seem ok.

Just off the top of my head:

Have you tried changing the patch cord between your PC and the powerline adapter? (this was the culprit with a friends set up)

Resetting the adapter and if no joy then moving it to another outlet are things I'd try as well.

Have you aquired any new electrical equipment, or moved any equipment that might be causing the adapter interference?

Hi bleepingcomputer people! I registered because I'm in need of your help (and I hope this is the right section).
 
From a few days, there's a little problem happening in my computer. First off, I'm using WINDOWS 7, and my pc specs (copy pasting what I see in the properties): 10 GB of RAM, intel Core i3 2100 CPU 3,10 GHz, 64 bit
 
It has always been good, I mostly use the pc for music reproduction and production. But weirdly, some day some applications started to open really slowly.
An example: when I open Foobar for the first time after I boot up my PC, it is REALLY slow and the window appears 15-25 seconds later and then I can use the program regularly. Also, after I opened it the first time and close it, and then open it again, it works as normal (very fast start). The same happens with other small applications; I have for example Advanced Renamer (that I use for renaming songs) or other really small .exes
 
I didn't notice this happening with folders, internet or other things. I highly doubt it's a virus, I have TinyWall running and MSE, and I rarely get viruses because I hardly surf the web or download stuff from P2P or torrent services.
 
What could be the issue? It's not a "serious" issue, but it's certainly super annoying 
 
Hope you have an idea of why PC started this behaviouring, and hope you can help me
 
See ya around 

Answer:Some applications are slow to open

Hey! Inital boots can be slow, but you may have a damaged HDD. This generally means slowly your PC will crawl to a point where it takes 10 minutes to open a video. If you feel like it is slowing down more and more, definietly copy everything over immediately.

Grateful if anyone can advise on this please as it's driving me mad.
Laptop (Vaio) on XP (4 yrs old) and 2 gb RAM, is just so slow to open any programs, even including IE8, you would think it was going backwards. Even Outlook 2010 or infact any application at all (Word, Excel etc) takes an absolute age to open. Trying to open more than one program is impossible.
I've scanned for malware (& in safe mode), and all clear; done the same with antivirus (no problems); taken the battery out just in case it was this, no problems. Have done a CCleaner, plus reg cleaner session all to no avail. I'm doing a disk clean-up as we speak, but this is also taking ages. When that's done - maybe tomorrow when disk clean up has finished - plan on defragging the hard drive.
Capacity of hard drive is 55 gb, with 14 gb free.
This all started last week; no new software installed and regularly update and scan with malware bytes anti malware, super anti spyware, and also avast.
If I start the machine in safe mode (which reduces number of drivers) then it seems ok.
Left the machine on all last night and tried to open Outlook this morning and all was ok. Also able to open IE8 and other programs, so it's as if it needs an excessive amount of time to start to work 'normally'. Maybe the hamster inside needs feeding more often? I shut it down then tried a restart, then the old problem came back - ultra slow.

Answer:All Applications Load Very Slow

Hello klink1956 and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I see no signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

For performance issues I would suggest posting a question in the XP forum and have them do a deeper check for what processes are using the most resources. Sometimes a program might have a runaway process and everything stops until it finishes running. Let them know that you have been to this forum and no malware was found.

Cheers.

I recently setup a vpn for some of our satellite offices to be able to use a software package called Medisoft at our home office. The setup was successful and we are able to connect the only problem is that when you use the software on the client side its extremely slow and takes a LONG time to query the database/print etc. I did a test on the internet connection from the server and I'm getting 1.5mpb down and a meager .2 mbps up. In anyones opinion would upgrading this line to say a 10/2 fix this problem or could it possibly be a function of the software? Thank you for reading.
 

Answer:VPN setup, applications slow

There are a number of factors for the applications running slow on the client side. The first one of course would be your Upload and Download speed for the Internet Connections at both locations. The other variable is that VPN's use encryption. This also slows things down as well. The ISP connection you have is extremely sub standard for doing business related network Traffic. My home ISP is 5 times faster than that. You may want to talk to your ISP's for the home and statellite offices and get faster Internet connections on both ends and look at getting Symmetrical bandwidth.

Hi againThis is really a continuation to a problem I had last year when I received help for removing trojans. I don't think I have any trojan problems back, but from that time, my laptop has been so slow. I thought it was caused by the anti-malware, anti-spyware, etc. that I had installed to get rid of the malware(trojans) at the time and it would be normal for all these programs to slow things down. However, this is getting worse. I believe this is the address to my previous thread as suggested that you might read what was done then: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...obdor&st=15Or you may have to regard this problem now as a new topic.

Once that is uncompressed and I go to burn it to a DVD it also takes close to an hour.(My burner is only 2.5 but it should'nt take that long)

Does anyone know why these precesses take so dam long?

Answer:Slow, Slow Slow burning and unzipping

Well for un-raring I am not surprised... that is Always slow.. perhaps try a new unzipper like 7zip...(it is the fastest in my opinion)... as for the DVD it is probably a combination of the slow burn speed and the software... also, if you have a bunch of processes and other programs running while the burn is happening it can slow it down quite a bit...

Answer:Not Again! Slow PC, Slow Start Up, Slow Outside of Internet

Hello justanotherguy,

You continue to get reinfected because you are still running unpatched XP.

IMPORTANT!:
Before we can proceed any further, please visit the Microsoft's Windows Update Page and install ALL Critical Updates for your system (except service pack 2 (SP2). SP2 should only be installed on a fully disinfected system.) At the minimum install at least SP1a for both XP and IE6. Without these updates your system is wide open to re-infection and we are both wasting our efforts to clean your system. After we have completed your clean-up, we will have you return to the Windows Update page and install SP2. We will also then advise you on how to better protect yourself online.

Please apply those updates BEFORE posting your next log. It is this forum's policy to stop the disinfection process until these basic updates are done. If during the updating process you get a message that your product key is invalid ....then you may not have a legitimate copy of Windows XP. Unfortunately it?s also this forums policy that we only address users with a legal copy of Windows XP.... therefore if you can not update Windows XP to SP1 we must stop the cleansing process here.

**Note** If you're having trouble locating the service pack SP1a here is a direct link to download it from.

Lets say I have 30 files and each on is in a rar format and all together is just over 4gb(the size of a dvd). It takes almost an hour to unrar them? The end result is a 4gb .img file. Once that is uncompressed and I go to burn it to a DVD it also takes close to an hour.(My burner is only 2.5 but it should'nt take that long)

Does anyone know why these precesses take so dam long?

Thank you!

My Windows XP computer has slowed down within the past month or so. The computer, an eMachines T6528 Athlon 64 3500+ with 512 mb ram which is shared, while certainly not a power burner, always started quickly and was quick to get to web sites. I use it mainly for email (Outlook Express) and browsing the internet (IE7). I have defragged the C: drive and cleaned out any unused applications - no help. Since my Trend Micro Internet Security subscription was expiring and since the computer was already really slow I changed security to a CA Suite provided by my ISP. That did nothing for the speed.

It starts very slowly, opens programs very slowly, and takes forever to load a web page.

The following HJT log follows, as does a start-up list. Please make this machine run faster.

The same corrupted file has been turning up, despite it being erased by Norton AV, Ad-aware, and Kaspersky. Now, many Microsoft programs (mainly IE and Outlook) just close out. They don't crash, or give an error, they just disappear. I tried to use system restore earlier today, but it did the same thing. Outlook mostly closes when I try to print an email, but closes at other times too. I'm sorry I didn't think to write down the corrupted file name, etc, but if it turns up again I'll post it right here in this thread. Well, here goes the log. I will be checking this thread frequently, but forgive me if I am away for a bit; soon I will have to go to work.

*Edit: The corrupt file popped up again just now.

Hey,

My Windows 7 SP1 computer has recently started being very slow. Startup from the password screen takes 2 1/2 to load the desktop. General file management tasks, like viewing, copying, moving, and deleting files operate at normal speed. However, when I do something that Windows has to "look up" i.e, not cached, the entire computer slows to a crawl. The application does open, but I get a lot of 'Not Responding" messages in the title bar as I use the application. There is one external drive connected via USB 2.0. Page file is set to system managed.

Could this be my HDD going? I haven't checked the disk for errors yet, going to do that next.

Let me know your thoughts on this.

Thank you,

wws

I recently set up a new PC with Windows XP Professional. I have all the latest drivers for my hardware and latest bios for motherboard and graphics card. After installing all the software I need, I noticed that all applications are taking an unusual amount of time to appear on the screen. Even something as basic as opening "Windows explorer" or "My computer" are effected. Here's what happens using the example, clicking on the "My computer" icon on the desktop. I'll double click on the "My computer" icon and there is the expected brief disk activity followed by a delay of anything up to five seconds before the window opens. There is no disk activity during this delay or at the piont when the window finaly opens so I've ruled out the possibility of a hard disk problem. When the window opens it will either open cleanly or it will open hesitantly, gradualy displaying parts of the screen but it always gets there in the end. I would have considered the possibility of a graphics card problem but I have a multi boot system. When I boot to another Windows XP partition all is well. Has anyone got any ideas?

Answer:Windows XP applications slow to open

sounds like a problem of system resources using too much memory or cpu time.click here for info on reducing program that over use your resources.
