Slow system startup and very slow internet. Pages taken 5 minutes to load!!!

Question: Slow system startup and very slow internet. Pages taken 5 minutes to load!!!

My system has been very slow for the last 24 hours. Startup was slow. Programs not loading. Even the google home page wasn't loading properly.

I restarted my router and the issues seem to be better but I think there is still a malware issue in the background somewhere.

Please help!

Preferred Solution: Slow system startup and very slow internet. Pages taken 5 minutes to load!!!

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.)

Operating System - Windows XP running on a HP Pavillion 761n - Missing dll files such as:
mscvr80.dll and msvcp80.dll. Can't seem to find these files anywhere or I just don't know where to locate them. Please advise if at all possible. Thanks
 

Answer:Computer running very slow takes 20 minutes to load startup programs

do you have a windows XP installation CD matching the version on your computer? i'm not talking about any HP recovery disks.

if yes, go to start, run and type SFC / SCANNOW and press OK. insert the xp cd ito the drive when prompted.

alternatively, you can download missing DLL files from this web site:

When I open Foxfire, whatever url I use, it loads very slowly, if at all. Most of the time I get "Page not found or server unavailable," or something equivalent. Sometimes the page partially loads. This has been going on for a few days and has gotten worse. It's definitely this computer-specific since my other computer does not have this problem. I've got a Sony Vaio using Windows 7. Thanks for any help you can provide.Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Hi everyone, annoying problem here--My laptop, a new HP DV7, is very fast in every aspect except for right after login when the system tray icons just appear to remain unresponsive for a full 1-2 minutes. System tray icons hang at startup:Wireless: The wireless icon has the red X through it (suggesting that the wireless hadnt loaded yet), when the wireless in fact works just fine for the entire 1-2 minutes that it is X'd out.

Power Management: The power management icon (battery), if you click on it to change settings in the first 1-2 minutes, will popup the small power management menu, but not allow you to change any options or click anything (the cursor does that vista circular thinking icon thing)

Volume: The volume seems to work the best, but still not well. It lets me change volume, but the volume popup from the tray icon gets stuck open. It will stay open and frozen until the 1-2 minutes passAfter the 1-2 minutes, everything just seems to start working fine immediately. The wireless icon switches to the correct world icon (even though it had already been working for 2 minutes).I've tried restoring my computer, running several scans - no infections whatsoever. Funny thing is, if I log off the computer and then log back on, the icons all load fine INSTANTLY. It is only after a rebootMy startup and services are very clean, I'm pretty anal about all that stuff. Those 3 icons I mentioned above are my ONLY system tray icons. I'm so sick of Vista, XP never did this ... Read more

Answer:System Tray Icons Slow and Unusable for 2 minutes at startup

It seems like you?ve taken all the necessary OS/software precautions, my question is: what do you have under the hood? If you?re running on limited RAM, that might be some of the hangup.

Cheers,

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.
Can you help please.
Hope this is in the right place-if not please advise.

Answer:Google Chrome slow to load and slow to load web pages

Further info.
Noticed 2 instances of msiexec.exe running in Task Manager.
Googled this and found that if genuine it is part of Windows installer
but can also be a virus.
Did a search and found MSIEXEC.EXE-2F8A8CAE.pf
Googled this and found it is probably Malware.
If so can you help me get rid of it please

Hi all, I have had this problem for about a week now, but it has gradually worsened.
As the title states, my internet is extremely slow, and I cannot load certain content heavy pages such as fileplanet.com, gamershell.com etc.
My laptop (Xp) is wireless, I have tried direct connection to the router to no avail.
My dad's desktop (Xp) is wired, and also has the same problem.
My mum's laptop (Vista) is wireless but works absolutely fine (posting this off of her's)
I am running Zone Alarm, have done multiple scans with AVG, Ad Aware and Spybot with no improvement.
I've tried using open dns, and flushing my dns.
I've cleaned up my temp files and cache.
I should also mention, downloads are completely fine.
It's JUST the browser.
At one point I had two instances of rundll32.exe active at once, but only one seems to be running now.
In safe mode, guess what! Everything is dandy, so it must be program related, and I'm guessing a problem to do with something within Xp.
I saw on one forum someone reporting that there was an unknown process checked in msconfig and some dlls in the system32 directory with a similar name, upon deletion of them all, the problem was resolved, alas I cannot see anything like this.
After searching ALL over the internet and seeing many people with the same problem, I have found no resolution, someone please help me out!
Anything would be much appreciated, I'm losing it over this one.. hope the info is specific enough for ... Read more

Answer:ALL internet browsers are very slow/cannot load some pages. Very specific problem.

Peerguardian seemed to be blocking most of the access to sites such as fileplanet, and Avg Web Shield was massively slowing down my browser speed.
This does solve the problem but leaves me a bit less secure.

Answer:2nd post-Applications/internet pages slow to load HJT LOg included

The P2P programs you have installed expose you to risks because of the nature of the P2P file sharing process. File sharing/P2P programs rely on members giving and gaining unrestricted access to computers across the P2P network. This practice can make you vulnerable to data and identity theft. It also exposes you to very malicious worms and trojans. You change those risky default settings to a safer configuration but the act of downloading files from an anonymous source greatly increases your exposure to infection.

Go to add/remove programs and remove all P2P programs from your machine!

Click here to download Dr.Web CureIt and save it to your desktop.

Doubleclick the drweb-cureit.exe file and Allow to run the express scan
This will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found, click the yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it. This is only a short scan.
Once the short scan has finished, mark the drives that you want to scan.
Select all drives. A red dot shows which drives have been chosen.
Click the green arrow at the right, and the scan will start.
Click 'Yes to all' if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
When the scan has finished, look if you can click next icon next to the files found:
If so, click it and then click the next icon right below and select Move incurable as you'll see in next image:

This will move it to the %userprofile%\DoctorWeb\quarantaine-folder if it can't be cured. (this in case if... Read more

For the past 2 days, I've had problems with my browser not loading web pages after about 10-11 minutes online. The internet connection itself works fine but no more new pages can be loaded. I get an error message and it says Firefox cannot load server. I've tried Avast/Ad-Aware/Spy-bot and nothing was found. I've cleaned out my cache, cookies, temp files and that did not solve the problem. I've tried switching browsers from Firefox and that only gave me 5 extra minutes before timing out. What else can I do? Is it possible that I may have a different type of virus that's not being caught?

Answer:Pages won't load past 10-11 minutes on internet

It would be helpful if you could advise how you are connected to the Internet?

Also, have you tried contacting your ISP, explaining the issue and ask them to run any diagnostic checks?

Answer:Slow Laptop..slow starting up and loding internet pages

1. Software
a) Clear out all temporary files and folders -- use CCleaner http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download
b) Scan for malware spyware and viruses --Free Anti Spyware :-
Malwarebytes http://www.malwarebytes.org/
Superantispyware http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html
Free Antivirus software
MicroSoft Security Essentials http://www.microsoft.com/security/products/mse.aspx
Avast http://www.avast.com/en-gb/free-antivirus-download
c) Clean the registry -- Use the tool in Crap Cleaner its very safe and also allows you to back up the registry first.
d) Pagefile (Virtual Memory) -- Right click MY Computer - select properties - Advanced tab - Performance -
advanced tab - Virtual memory click change, you can put the page file on a different drive (if you have one), click
custom size and set Initial size to one and a half times the amount of memory you have fitted i.e. 512MB memory
= set to 768MB, set maximum to double your memory amount i.e. 512MB memory = 1024MB click ok.
If your hard drive is full and there is not enough room for the pagefile this can slow down, freeze or even cause the
PC to crash (restart).
e) Cut down on the programs that load at start up -- Start - Run type msconfig - start up tab- untick everything except for firewall, antivirus and antispyware
and the services that run in the background. http://www.blackviper.com/

Hi newbie here so go easy on me :wave:

My mum has a realtively newly built PC (about 2 weeks old), and has XP Professional installed along with Norton Antivirus 2003.

She is using dial-up internet with an external modem, and although her default homepage (bbc) loads straight away after that browsing becomes progressively slower and slower. Some pages do not load up at all after a while and she is forced to turn off her connection and try again. She cannot access any secure sites at all (for her internet banking and buying things). She has cleared her cache to no avail.

I have been told to see if a firewall is blocking secure ports 443, 84 and/or 8443. I'm not sure how to check that? I'm not even sure she has a firewall installed at all?

Should she try Mozilla Firefox? Should I install Norton?

I've checked her dialup internet provided (lineone/tiscali) and there appears to be no problems?

Hello all,

Thank you first of all for reading this thread.
I have just received my laptop (Dell Inspiron 9400) back from repairs with hard drive replaced and noticed that it runs into a problem that I had managed to fix previously, but now have forgotten how to.

What basically happens is that after installing all windows updates (note, it does not occur when not installing certain updates, but there are several critical ones that do) and booting up Windows XP MCE2005, I cannot fully load most (not all) webpages for about 5 minutes.

When this problem occurs, the page either won't load at all and causes IE6 to hang or it loads partially and then hangs up. During that time I can only force close it and that works fine, except that trying again will result in the same problem.

If I leave the hanging window(s) open or wait the 5 minutes, the open windows will mysteriously load up as if nothing happened and any new instances of IE will work fine too. This of course is very annoying when you have to wait 5 minutes after each reboot to actually be able to view the majority of web pages.

I am pretty certain that it is a problem with one of the windows updates that affect IE6, because I can run webpages just fine using firefox even right after reboot.

I tried reformatting and reinstalling windows already last night. Again, only happens after certain critical security updates are installed...

Also, I already have the key FEATURE_PROTECT_DECOMPRESSION_FILTER_FROM_ABORT_KB9423... Read more

-->The driver for this card is the newest Dell provides for it (11.5.0.32, revision A13 from September 2007), however I have Windows managing the connection rather than Intel, but the problem occurs either way.


In addition, this problem occurs after every reboot and each time I reconnect to the internet, including having a second connection while the first is still running, such as VPN, and when disconnecting VPN, the first connection gets the problem again for an extended period.

I guess this means that it is related to IE and to connecting to the internet in general. Just odd that it does not occur with FF...

Some websites, such as Drudgereport, are extremely slow to load. Apple.com won't load at all. Yet others such as google, msn, craigslist load in under 2 seconds. I've reset IE8 and opted out of all the filters and verifiers. Still no fix. Anyone else w/ same? I only have AVG and have recently uninstalled McAfee (before reset), as it was a big pain.

Hi there

I have XP sp2 and recently started observing slow system startup, slow application start up, slow system shut down and many times my video becomes very slow to refresh when running IE and any other application at the sametime. Almost seems like video memory is not being swapped correctly or maybe something I'm not aware of is running the the background stealing system resources.
I can see that I have many instances of SVCHOST running when opening the TaskManager.
I have run CCleaner and optimized the HD. Not sure where to go from here. I have also shut down/disabled most programs on startup.

Thanks for your help

When the computer is restarted or started, it takes 20 minutes before any window can be opened. During the startup, several screens pop up re the fax and photo gallery and that windows installer cannot continue. It becomes necessary to hit cancel three times to clear the fax screen, then the same for the photo gallery screen. If I walk away during the startup, it will not complete until these screens are cancelled out. A screen indicates that this is an Error 1706.

Hi,
I hope you can help me.
I usually use Firefox but have recently started a new job which uses an online tool which has to be used in IE7.
I need to look at numerous websites and speed is of the essence but it's taking anything up to 30 seconds (occasionally more) for each site to load...not fast enough for my needs. I have Comodo Firewall (updated) and newly installed Avast (also updated). Have done disk clean up, disk defrag, cleared temp files.
Is there any way to speed it up as I may lose my job if I can't work fast enough?
Any help very much appreciated.

Forgot to add, I'm using a Toshiba Equim L40 with Windows Vista
 

Answer:IE7 very very slow to load pages

A few ideas

My first suggestion would be to disable any and all "Add Ons" to see if they are intercepting your requests.

In IE7, under Tools, "Manage Add Ons" and disable everything. Close and reopen IE, then see if anything improves.

I'd also take a good hard look at your Comodo Firewall. It is probably conflicting with the Windows firewall.

Answer:Web pages very slow to load.

I would like some extra info. Do you notice Internet Explorer (IE) or Crome if it's installed loading slowly as well? I have noticed that sometimes and on certain computers that Firefox (FF) will load slowly. If you don't have problems in IE it may just be FF and nothing actually wrong with your computer. Do you have any other problems or symptoms?

My apps and the rest of my system run perfectly. About a week ago whenever I open a web page it is very slow to load (sometimes not at all). Before this everything was running great (I haven't changed anything since). I am using Firefox (I also tried IE and opera and it still was slow). I ran adaware and spybot and removed all infections. I also ran my registry first aid platinum on the system. I have also tried different DNS servers (I think it may have something to do with this because my internet speed test is always high 7-8 MBs. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
 

Answer:web pages slow to load

frequently scans either don't detect spyware/viruses or can't remove them properly.

I recommend download HiJackThis (google it) and run a scan and post your log here. Also press CTRL ALT DEL and see what your CPU usage and memory usage are when idle. But more importantly post the HiJack log.
Try this:
go to start->run
type CMD
at the prompt, type ping speedguide.net

It will ping that server 4 times, and show you an average round trip time in milliseconds. Do that a couple times for consistenty, and post what you are getting here.
But seeing as the rest of your system runs fine, it may be some settings you may have changed inadvertantly.

Please help - everytime I click to browse, my page loads in very slowly - for example, when I am reading the news and click on a link, the page loads in, but the text takes a long time to appear, I might get the heading the news article and date, but the news part takes a while before it loads. Also, when I scroll down the page, it seems to get ready to kick in the text after I scroll, then I have to go back to the top of the page to start reading.

Can anyone tell me what is causing this. Is my IE 6 browser hijacked. If you need to see a log of my HJT log, you will find in under a post I sent before under Security regarding programs slowing my system down and what do I need to uncheck under msconfig - startup files. If you can't locate, then I'll run HJT again.

Thanking you in advance.

P.S. The previous post I sent - no one responded to my HJT log file.

hi guys

my internet explorer works fine with most websites, however, on a few websites it takes a long time to load and loads in a different way to others - it loads the background of the website first, from top to bottom, then loads the main content all at once.

an example of a website that does this is www.startwiththis.com

anyone have any ideas why it does this?

Answer:pages load very slow

Hi,
I tried it with FireFox and it loaded the way you described. I think it's just the way the site was designed. As for why some sites load slower than others it's usually that some send the info faster than others.

So, here's the deal....my PC was down for a little over 2 months and recently got it back up and running. Only problem was that the video card became unseated...one firm push and poof, it was back on. Well, after getting back online and all, of course i had a million updates to do...McAfee, Windows, etc etc... Well, during one of the updates, I now have IE7, no biggie there, except that it is loading slower than frozen snot when i try to go online.
Once online, it is a little more sluggish than it used to be, but not too bad.... tolerable, sort of. I cleaned a lot of junk out of the computer, as recommended in your slow computer forum, yet no avail. I have a high speed connection thru comcast via the motorola SB5101...(which was not the one that I was connecting thru before this computer went on the fritz...). Hate the cable guys.... when he switched my modem, he didn't leave me the disc, so of course, I had a field day trying to find the driver.... amazing how stupid one feels when they find what they are looking for in the spot they knew they should have checked first....lol. Anyways.. that is resolved and the old modem has been removed from the computer...i think.
Any help here would be graciously appreciated.

Thanks,
LA Hilton

Also, How do i change my mail settings in IE7 to import from my comcast addy and not my hotmail/msn?

Answer:Ie7/ Slow To Load Web Pages/pc Was Down For 2 Mos

I suspect the slow speed of IE7 webpage loading is caused by the anti-phishing tool. I've noticed that my IE7 takes about 3 times as long to load up pages as IE6 did and I see that the anti-phishing button is active.

I'm posting this here because I'm not sure where to go. Please move me to the appropriate place if somewhere else would be better.

I use Firefox but tried IE and have the same problem.

Last week internet pages started loading slowly and rarely fully load. It will take a minute or more for a simple page like Google to open. Fuller pages like a news site will take upwards of 5 minutes and still not fully load. They continually say waiting, transferring, or looking up in the bottom left corner. The refresh arrow on the URL bar remains an X.

I have run virus scan, McAfee Virus Scan Plus. I have also run Spybot and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as well. None of them have found anything.

Thinking maybe I have a router/Wi-fi issue I have disconnected Wi-fi and wired into the modem. No better. Have a desktop pc (wired), Android tablet and Nintendo Wii (both Wi-fi) and nothing else is having problems.

There do not seem to be any other signs of problem on laptop. I can run other things - games, office programs and such and everything opens and operates fine.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Dawn

I've got a bit of a strange issue. Hopefully someone here can shed some light on it for me. As Iíve typed and typed this here, it got a bit long, but hopefully it all makes sense.

I've got 4 computers in my house, all listed in my signature. There is a WHS 2011 machine down in my basement, a desktop PC, a HTPC and a laptop. We also have a WD TV box and our 2 smart phones on the network. Recently we've had some problems / slowness loading IE pages, at first it seemed to be only Google which is our home page. The page would take minutes to load, and we got an error "waiting for GoogleĒ' in the tab. We first noticed this with Google on our laptop because the laptop gets the most use during the week. But it seems to also happen on other pages.

Because we first experienced this on the laptop, I thought it was a wireless issue . So I unplugged the router & modem and restarted them, which seemed to fix things, but only for a short while and then the same problem started again. The past few days I've been using my desktop PC because of the issue on the laptop, and now the same issue is happening up here. So I'm thinking that it isn't WiFi related and it's more of an issue with my internet/network.

I tried doing a "ipconfig /flushdns" running as an administrator and also resetting the IE settings (tools, internet options, advanced, reset IE settings) thinking it was an IE issue. Again, each of those migh... Read more

Answer:IE pages slow to load

it could be, at least partially, DNS-related issues. When seeing "Waiting on www.url.com" could certainly mean that it's still trying to resolve the hostname to an IP.

So... first thing you could try is changing the DNS servers on one of your machines and see if that makes a different.
You can use Google's.

Web Pages Load Slow

I donít know how long I have had the problem with pages loading slow for both of my browsers. It probably has been 6 months. I have tried a number of things and nothing seems to work. What I have done is listed below.

1. Firefox takes at least 1 minute to open at start up.
2. Internet Explorer takes 1 minute to load at startup
3. Pages seem to take 2 minutes or more to load

Computer Info
1. Pentium 4 2.66 GHz, 1,024 Mb memory
Windows XP Home Edition SP
NVIDIA GeForce4 MX4000
Default Browser Firefox: 17.0.1
Other Browser: Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.13

What steps have I taken?

1. Changed AVG Free to Charter Security Suite with F-Secure.
Charter Security Suite Online Scan found 4 iexplorer.exe files that AVG Free didnít catch.
2. Ran CCleaner and the registry cleaner in CCleaner.
3. Ran PC Matic at PC Pitsop. It found a lot of things wrong including Registry Errors. I didnít purchase it and run the fixes.
4. Ran a scan with Charter Security Suite. It didnít find any viruses or spyware.
5. I have read a lot of sites about browser is slow, pages loading slow, improving Firefox speed and optimizing Firefox. I did change a few settings in Firefox, but that hasnít changed anything.
6. Disabled Extensions and Plug-ins in Firefox except for Java and Shockwave.
7. I clear history in Firefox a lot more since I have this problem. I also have the history cleared out when Firefox closes. I delete all the browsing history in the Internet Options of Internet E... Read more

Starting about 4 days ago, I had problems with web pages not loading at all, and others working but whole computer seems slow. My recent software installs were gotomypc and the latest Windows Live Messenger. Had no problems for at least a couple days after the gotomypc load and it worked great. The problems did come closer to right after the Windows Live MEssenger, but I don't know if that was the cause. I did a system restore to about a week ago (prior to both of those loads) without any luck.

I installed, updated and ran spybot with no findings, AVG same result, successfully flushed the DNS REsolver cache, emptied recylce bin, deleted personal data from Firefox.

I run Firefox (which was also recently updated), but the problem also exists on IE. I was baout to say that my CPU Usage was running less than 15%, because I was watching while I was having many of the problems, but not I look at it whileI am typing this and it is bouncing between 60-100%, with firefox between 5-25%, wmiprvse.exe at 13-25%, avgnsx.exe at 38%

Hello,

I actually have two problems, so the first one is that when windows starts
up, it gets to the desktop pretty fast but the network icon takes a few
good minutes to load (the system doesn't seem busy at that time) and
ofcourse im not worried about the actual icon, it's just that i don't have
internet until the icon shows up.

This problem and also the next one im going to mention just came up
one day....(not both on the same day).

So the second problem is that almost always when i first open the start
menu after startup, it opens up ok, but when i point the mouse on the
programs menu it take about 20sec of wait until it opens and all the menus
are stuck until it's released, and i have to mention that after the first time
i open the menu, it will be ok most of the times i open the programs
menu until i reboot again, then it all starts over.

I must mention that i tried a registry cleaner a few times and it didn't change a thing, and other than that, i don't have any more ideas.

Roi.

Specs: Win7 64bit, 4GB ram.

For the past little while now, whenever I would turn on my computer, things would start up but it would hang, in the sense that nothing *would* start up until the network was found and connected to. The network indicator icon in the taskbar would just have a frozen blue spinning circle. While that was happening, I would still have internet access, but certain things like watching youtube would cause the browser to crash. I would be like that for about 10 minutes until suddenly it would tell me "network found" and the rest of my pc starts up as usual.

When in safe mode with networking, this problem does not occur. I used msconfig and disabled everything that starts up to see if that was the issue but the problem still occurred.

After some google searching, I found some results that tied to having an HP printer, some Nvidia network connection... But alas, I had none of those things. On start up, I checked my resource monitor to try to catch anything weird, all I saw were alot of svchosts and pagefile/windows stuff.

This is obviously a network thing. Has something changed? did it ever work? are you using "homegroup" or workgroup?

Formatting wont help a network problem.

Hi,

For a few days now my system has been taking a long time to startup. It used to take me about a minute to startup on my laptop, now it takes almost 5 minutes. I did a virus scan with NOD32 and it detected several trojans in my system. Also, after NOD32 removed the trojans, my wifi internet has stopped working on my laptop while the same wifi connection works on the desktop. I am suspecting that the trojan has resurfaced and disabled my internet connectivity somehow.

My laptop is a Lennovo Y430 and it's running Windows XP Home edition. I have attached my Hijackthis log as well as a log of the list of trojans removed by NOD32.

I've been using vista on this machine for a year without any problems,
had it all tweaked out and just when everything was good (I think it was

everything works as it should, just like before. I've been trying

Got rid of all but necessary startup programs (about 9 running now)
Cleared the drives of all unnecessary files, temp data

Ten to 15 minutes is certainly on the long side. On the other hand, if
everything else is OK, most of us power on and boot once a day or less
frequently, and even a time like that doesn't hurt very much.
I press the power button and go get my coffee. When I come back it's
finished booting. I don't know how long it took and I don't care.

Nicolas

Answer:Tecra M9 - Slow startup (1-3 minutes)

Hi

Do you really think that 1 minute is slow? To be honest my both Toshiba notebook needs 1-2 minutes for startup.
But I think this isn?t slow because some programs will be loaded too. Furthermore in most cases I use the hibernation mode because it?s much faster.

Anyway, what OS do you use?
If you have TEMPRO installed on your notebook you should remove it or update it to the newest version.
Furthermore disable all programs in msconfig that you don?t need on startup (for example webcam software, Adobe Reader, etc.).
And don?t forget to defragment your HDD from time to time.

After this your notebook should start a little bit faster.

Answer:IE won't load pages and computer slow

Bump.

I know you guys are busy.

I have experienced a significant slow-down in my various browsers' ability to load pages over the past few months. 
 
I use IE9 and Firefox18.  Most of the slow-down seems to be with loading ads and other content external to the particular website I am visiting (YouTube embedded video player, etc.). 
 
On some websites, once they load, I experience freezing when scrolling with my mouse wheel -- text that blurs across the screen, etc.  This even happens on the bleepingcomputer.com site. 
 
I'm running a 3 year-old HP desktop, wireless cable Internet connection, and have not had this issue to this extent until recently.  I installed BOINC 6 weeks ago, but the slow browser problem pre-dates that software by at least a month or more. 
 
I've run MBAM scans - nothing found.  Online speed tests - throughput is fine.
 
Any suggestions on how to proceed in addressing this issue would be greatly appreciated!

Hello people. I'm new here but I've been reading these threads for some time now.. when occasionally bumped into minor problems.
Now I have a much serious problem, one that I have had before. My PC (Vista x64) is infected again with same type of virus/trojan that crashed my last OS installation. I don't know how I got infected .. this morning I powered up the PC and found that I could not load any page on Firefox3 nor on IE, Chrome. Also the Yahoo messenger would not login said something like "connection error .. check your connection settings...". Tried to diagnose and repair the connection, Windows reported no problems with the connection. Connection was there and ping was just fine but the web pages would load (blank white page) for minutes before displaying something in the page .. like text or something.
I rebooted into 'safe mode with networking' and all worked fine, also booted into Windows7 beta 32bit (I have them in dual boot mode) and it worked just fine.
I've googled these simptoms but couldn't find anything remotely close to my problem.
Last time I had these problems tried to solve them by myself using HJT but managed to crash my system and couldn't boot it up again
So now I don't want to do it all again and figured some of you guys could help me.. I've seen some magic done around here
I've already scanned the system with HJT hoping I could see something suspicious, but well .. I'm no expert... Read more

I recently did a recovery installation of Windows XP due to my system not working properly. It was asking for a password on a user account all of the sudden. Soon after that it was starting up directly into safe mode into a different user account. Now that I have done the recovery installation I can not go to Windows to update the system to SP3 and other patches. I can not even go to these sites using Firefox V3 due to the following errors:AVG to get their AV free.avg.com Firefox can't find the serverMicrosoft microsoft.com, updates.microsoft.com - can't find serverI am afraid I had some virus sneak into my system and now I can not get rid of it. I did try resetting a couple areas and even tried Malwarebytes' anti malware. That program would not update either. During the reload I did try to set up home networking through my Netgear wired router and was not successful. I do have that PC available to use and get updates or other programs if necessary. I tried saving the new AVG to a flash drive and installing. I received an error message that the PC could not connect to the internet.

Hi,

I have a Sony Vaio VPCEE2M1E laptop and a 3 network mobile broadband dongle connection.

Recently I have experienced problems with web pages not loading in Google Chrome and IE8 - inparticular web pages such as www.yahoo.co.uk and www.facebook.com. A lot of other pages to the internet are very slow to load.

Having a dongle is quite a slow connection but this web page problem is getting worse.

Please can anyone help?

Thanks

I am using Windows 7 on a PC. I use [email protected] DSL, IE 10, and Yahoo is my home page. I have problem after problem with web pages freezing, Facebook is one, but there are many others. Sometimes it is my e mail. At times there is a delay from the keystroke until the text appears, other times it won't type at all. The mouse cursor is behind the mouse movement and jerky. At times when I log onto the internet it opens very, very slowly or not at all. The internet is not a pleasant experience right now.

Certain sites, usually with a load of adverts go into whirring icon mode for a good 30 secs several times on my laptop which is i5, 8Gb, SSD, NVidia GeForce 825M. It's a recent-ish fresh install of Win 10.
This is both on IE and MS Edge.

The same sites are fine on my desktop i7, 8Gb, SSD, oldish ATi card.

Is this changeable in any way or do I just have to put up with the fact that the laptop will be inherently slower in this way?

Thanks.

Hey guys,

I'm hoping someone can help me out with this annoying problem.

I have a 14MB connection. Yesterday I noticed that web pages with advertising on them seem to load in very slowly. The hotmail sign in page loads in instantly and the only thing I notice different is that it's not spammed up with advertisements.

I've uninstalled ActiveX, Flash, and Java, and reinstalled them. I've also run Malwarebytes and my system was clean. I have Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 with an active subscription and a clean bill of health. This problem occurs with all of my browsers, Chrome, Firefox and IE. Tracert gives me good readings. I did a system restore back 8 days, and I still have this problem.

What happens is the following: The webpage loads in, but stops responding for about 15 seconds, sometimes Google Chrome asks me if I want to kill the page. At the bottom it always says something like: Waiting for ad.yieldmanager.com or
bids.open.net or ad.g.net. It's almost like Active X is corrupted or something and is having trouble loading in the advertisements properly. Suddenly the ads load in and the page then becomes responsive. Before this problem started occuring the pages loaded in instantly.

I'm not quite sure what to do here other than reinstall Windows 7. I'd like that to be a last resort if possible, and I'd like to get this figured out because I'll always wonder what the problem actually was.

I have used Firefox for a few years now without any issues. For the last two weeks it's been painfully slow to load pages, or not responding or script issues and Shockwave plug-in errors. It actually took me about 10 minutes just to get the forum website to load.

I use Windows XP, avast anti virus and run Malwarebytes weekly. The computer is virus free and malware scans came up clean for months. And to make sure it was clean ran Super AntiSpyware and that is clean. So was trying to eliminate what could be the issue I disabled all add-ons ,extension and theme in Firefox but that didn't solve the problem. Then I uninstalled avast and installed AVG just to see it there was some conflict with Firefox and avast but the issue continues. I also run CCCleaner.

Before I tossed the computer over the balcony I decided to try a different browser, so Chrome was my next choice but the issue continued there also. I never ever use IE but gave that a shot and same thing. So still not ready to give up I installed Opera with no luck.

Yes the computer is old but the issue is new and I'm not sure where else to turn to try to fix it or if the computer is just on it's last leg.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hey everyone, ive had this problem for awhile now. Ever since I re-installed my system with Vista for the secound time web pages have been loading slow, or in burst. Im a big linux user so I don't really know how to troubleshoot this problem. Ive tried every browser including: IE7, FF, OP, and Safari. All of them load web pages slow, when I restart and log back in pages load fine and after being log in for a few hours they start to load very slow or not at all, or they load in burst. So if I try loading www.google.com it might take 20secounds but as soon as it loads anything will load for about 10 secounds then go back to taking forever to load.

Ive tried looking at what logs I could find in Event View and nothing seems strange. Also ive loaded webpages on my other systems at the same time I try loading them on vista and they load fine. Ive tried on: XP, Mac OS X, and Linux.

Also ive tried turning off my firewall which is ZoneAlarm and still webpages load slow as dirt. I have scanned for spyware and its found nothing.

My computer has been slow lately. It lags and I figure I have spyware and such on it. I have ZeroAds, The Ultimate Troubleshooter, Norton System Works, and Norton Antivirus. It's a little quicker since I installed and updated these, but still not much better. I wasn't sure if these programs got rid of spyware or anything or if I should try some different software. Also, I wasn't sure if having all these programs to try and clean up my computer would counteract eachother and slow down my computer. Also, the time it takes to boot up my computer is a lot longer than it ever has been. Finally, my Internet Explorer doesn't work right. If I use AOL, the internet usually works right, but when I try Internet Explorer (because I don't have AOL at school), I get tons of popups even though I have ZeroAds and then Explorer just freezes and eventually I have to CTRL ALT DELETE it. If anyone knows how to help me it'd be greatly appreciated.

I've got a rather odd problem, I'll probably do a full reinstall in a couple of days, but for now I need my computer so it will have to wait.
well, since yesterday(everything worked fine before that) the computer is really slow, or it feels like it's working every 30 sec, so if I give the computer a few instructions, it does all instructions in 1 sec then freezes for another 30 sec etc...
This happens around 10 minutes after starting the computer then everything goes back to normal, until I restart my computer again.

I've ran msconfig, and choose to only start the system-files, then everything is normal, so I guess it have to be some kind of program making my computer behave like this.Some endless loop making my computer unable to execute any other instructions.
I guess I could restart my computer with only the system files, and add a few "normal" files at a time. Until it starts going slow again. to pin point the problem, but that would take hours or even days?

I also somehow managed to remove my "system restore" saves, becous I increased the amount of memeory the restore had, and then all my saves disappeared ? So now I cant restore my system?
I've also checked the "windows" log file, and I'm getting some errors, don't know if I had them before.(the only critical error I get is an error that said that my computer takes to long to start)

The system takes almost 3 minutes to boot to desktop! I have tried removing nearly everything in startup using msconfig. I've run virus check (Norton), Spyware Removal checks (Adaware and Spysweeper), checked hijack log for any problems (almost empty), removed temp files, tweaked performance options, themes, removed unwanted programs, emptied recycle bin...everything I can think of to speed it up. The system doesn't have alot of extras on it so I'm perplexed. I tried loading another virus program on to see if maybe norton isn't working and its missing something but I got an error message about a .dll (I should've written this down!)
