Process load slow, especially AVG processes

Question: Process load slow, especially AVG processes

When I boot up, the C: drive stays lit for a long time. It is still loading my "process's" in the task manager.
I see that all my AVG files are usually the last to load, and I think this is the reason my boot up is not
as fast as it used to be. I ran malware bytes, AVG free, and CCleaner. They are all clean, no spyware, virus's
etc.

Does anyone have any ideas on what to do? I tried bootvis, that didn't help either. I've only got one
file in my start up, and that the AVG reference. I defrag twice a week also.

Thanks

Preferred Solution: Process load slow, especially AVG processes

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 seem to have the "Google Process Malware" that a lot of others on this forum have. A dozen or more processes with the Description "Google Chrome" and an apparently random filename are in Task Manager. End Task on one and a few more appear.

Attached are FRST and Addition logs. I appreciate your help on what to do next. Thank you.

Thanks so much for being out there to help us poor lost souls out!

I don't know what's happened lately to this laptop. My kids use it mostly and lately they've complained that it runs very slow and unstable. I tried to run ComboFix but it said I wasn't closing out AVG. I went to TaskManager and found several AVG*.EXE entries that I tried to shut down, but they'd keep coming back. I didn't dare proceed any further with ComboFix. I also saw a few entries in my HijackThis log that look worrisome. There was some kind of WinSearch (or something like that) loaded that I think I removed through "Add/Remove Programs", but I don't know if it left things around.

So I'll start by uploading my HijackThis log and see where you send me from here.

Thanks!!!

This seems to be an intermittant problem but it happens more often than not.

When I boot up the pc no matter who's login i use (mine or the wifes) when the desktop loads, the taskbar down the bottom is frozen. When i move the mouse over it there is just a hour glass.

Also certain programs won't load up like I-tunes or the defrag yet when i go into processes the itunes exe is showing.

Internet explorer seems to work ok.

I have Avira anti-virus & I am using Adaware, Spybot & spywareguard.

Hello.

First, I don't know is it right forum for this question. If not, please move my thread to other forum.

I was not looking at this list and today I did it for no reason and noticed something that I'm not sure about.

1. hyoidragaslope.exe.
User name that run this process : System
Location : C:\Windows\SysWOW64\
File details : Screenshot by Lightshot

Searching on Google did NOT give my any result so I don't know anything more about this file.

2. background worker.exe
User name that run this process : System
Location : C:\ProgramData\Digger\
File details : Screenshot by Lightshot

Once again, I never noticed these 2 files. I don't check it regulary but this one time I saw this and what to ask what is it.

Thanks in advance
TSFrozen

Answer:Strange processes on my process list

Whenever a process is not mentioned in Google, most likely it is a virus.
To find out
Run a full anti virus scan
Run a full scan with malwarebytes
Run a full scan with eset online.
These are good and should reveal the problem.
If nothing is shown, the security specialists will be here to help.

Some programs that are running "high" i try tweak the setting and force to run normal using Process Tamer ..but the parameters wont change to the specified tweak..why ? for instance, i use a GUI program that changes your cursor. that program is always running on high mode.

Answer:Cannot change priority of some processes using process tamer

Microsoft has designated some processes as critical to the running of the system and 'eligible' for high priority, like say the desktop process. Hence you may not be able to change their priorities.

I noticed this after coming home from holidays yesterday, not quite sure what it is. After some googling I found out it could be a trojan, but I only have one "system.exe" file, and it seems to be legit(Located in C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\).
Same goes for the "smss.exe" file and the "csrss.exe" file.

Has the process been there all along, or is it a trojan?

Anytime you come across a suspicious file or one that you do not recognize, search the name using Google or the following links:BC's File DatabaseBC's Startup Programs DatabaseFile Research CenterSvchost.exe is a generic host process name for a group of services that are run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs). It is not unusual for multiple instances of Svchost.exe running at the same time. The process ID's (PID's) must be checked in real time to determine what services each instance of svchost.exe is controlling at that particular time. To investigate these processes, see "How to determine what services are running under a Svchost.exe process" using Process Explorer.Determining whether a file is malware or a legitimate process sometimes depends on the location (path) it is running from. One of the ways that malware tries to hide is to give itself the same name as a critical system file. However, it then places itself in a different location on your computer. A file's properties may give a clue to identifying it.

It seems that this started when I upgraded from IE6 to IE8.

I start my computer and things are running fine and all of a sudden I get an error message - Generic Host Process for Win32 Processes enobleepered a problem.

After this I can usually keep operating somewhat but IE is non-functional.

Typically after this happens I also can't run Task Manager or shutdown without holding down the power button.

I'm running XP SP3.

I've run Malwarebytes several times and it doesn't make any difference.
Thanks for any assistance you can provie.

Answer:Generic Host Process for Win2 Processes error message

Things have gotten worse - now I can't even run anything on the computer. It immediately gets Windows Security Alert and anything that I try to run gives the security warning.

I booted in safe mode and ran Malwarebytes - full scan - and it didn't find anything.

Like what I said above this virus infects processes with high CPU usage even if they are not meant to be.

It also creates multiple random letter processes with .exe files like rtqwb.exe or winltfr.exe which causes lag, and if I delete or end the task it just comes up with another file/process.

Please help me.

I don't know if this is the right section or not for my question (since it isn't really hardware related.)

When I boot up my laptop, it has only 30 processes loaded. 2-5 minutes later, all the rest of them load up. One of them is my network connections, so I have no access to the internet or the local network for a couple minutes after the OS has loaded.

I noticed that when I do a virus/spyware scan, this issue goes away, so it is safe to guess that it is spyware related, but the problem is it keeps recurring.

Any thoughts?

PS. Please move the topic if it is in the wrong section. Thanks

Thank you for your time and help. I sure do need it. S-Pie

To answer your last question. What I meant by sometimes was that, sometimes Windows loads normally without BSOD. Anyway this issues seems to have disappeared now. Laptop runs a little bit faster but not much. Website are still loading very slow (even the major ones so it's not a problem with UE on their end, and loads much faster on my desktop). Explorer folders sometimes don't load icons and menus, preview of media takes ages sometimes causing crashes of the application, applications like skype, xlite and office are very slow and are getting stock/becoming unresponsive.
Thank you for your help.

Answer:Slow browsing and very slow explorer and disk read write related processes cont.

Quick update of things I've noticed. 
1. When searching for things on Google after typing the query and pressing enter/clicking search the page is stuck I can see it's loading at the top (Tab spinning circle) and the search page results are blank white, buttons are responsive etc but tit doesn't bring up any results. Then if I press search (enter or click the search button it displays the search results.
2. Sometimes there is a huge delay in typing. You can type a full sentence and it will display the letters/words slowly on the screen (letter by letter steady pace first and sometimes at a fast/semi fast burst of typing) but not at full speed. 
3. Sometimes when I open spreadsheets or other documents in office it says that someone is currently editing the file but this is a standalone laptop that is not part of an intranet and there is no one else who is viewing these files apart from me.

So I recently deleted a bunch of old files (documents, pictures, .exe) from my computer. Since I've done that my computer has been loading things much slower than normal. For example browser pages load slower, pictures on facebook take longer to load up, youtube/espn videos are slower to load, loading into a game takes much longer than before. However once I'm in the actual game, the game runs fine, or once the video has begun to buffer, it buffers at the same rate it always has (as far as i can tell.) This has me believe that it's not internet related. I'm concerned I might have deleted something I should not have but I do not know what I'm looking for. I recently ran a malware scan and cleared that out, I'm not sure why this tsg sysinfo says my windows defender is disabled, I have it open as I type this and it says that it my real time protection is on. Just ran a scan on it too and no threats were detected. Desktop is 2 years old and custom built.

Tl;dr: things load slowly after deleting files, pls halp

After a clean installation with WinXP I am saddended to say that it takes 3 mins to load when it would normally take 1 minute.

For example, after power on it will take 30 seconds to load up to the desktop, on task manager, 28 processes will have been shown/loaded at this time operations do not complete such as going to My Computer - it will show the browsing image of animation. It will take a further 2 and a half minute for the rest to follow to 36, this is when normal functions can work i.e. being able to surf the internet and shutting down promptly.

Can anyone help me please?

I am currently on WinXP Pro SP2
Intel Core 2 T7200 2.00GHz
2GB RAM
200GB HDD 7200rpm
GeForce 7950GTX 512MB

The only difference is that I used nLite to install OS, I integrated drivers and hotfixes to "save" time by not having to go through Win Update etc.

Thanks again, clgw...

Answer:Long load times for processes

Hi CLGW !

Make sure you have installed the latest drivers for your hardware, and check windows update again once you've installed those drivers. You could also do a regular install and install the drivers and updates afterwards to make sure you didn't slipstream the wrong hotfixes.

What antivirus, firewall and antispyware are you using ? What other programs are loaded at startup ? If you already have 36 processes running I guess you've installed a little more than just Windows.

Prevent unneeded stuff like quicktime, adobe, windows live messenger or office to load at startup. Most often you'll find the option in the program's settings (look for "run at startup" or "system tray icon"), if not then you can uncheck the corresponding item in msconfig (go to start => run => type msconfig and go to the startup tab) or move the shortcut away from start => all programs => startup. All those programs will work fine without being preloaded in the memory.

A good partition layout can also help improving the access time, but on a single drive rig there's not much you can do except make sure that the system partition is the first one on the drive (in case you have a multiboot system then the latter partitions will load slower than the first one on the drive since the access and transfer rates are faster on the outer parts of the platters).

Get used to save your downloaded files to another partition and don't put too many shortcuts on the deskto... Read more

Hi Folks,

I'm looking for an app that will allow me to monitor EVERYTHING that is loading - as it's loading - during startup..

Reason is, something is causing a real slowdown - taking sometimes 30 seconds to load (this one particular app or process)..

I get to the desktop, the system tray starts filling up - and then - paaaaaauuuussseee....

I've tried doing a ctl + alt + del to load the Windows Task Manager, and watch the Process tab - problem is - it gets to 33 processes - hits that pause - and then after the 15 - 30 seconds whatever it is that's slowing it down finally loads and then 10 other processes load instantly... SO - I can't single out which 'thing' it is that's giving that looooooong pause..

I'm hoping there is some utility / app out there that will load at startup, and either log each process and it's load time (or timestamp) - OR - let me view on the screen things as they're loading - and the ORDER that they are loading in.. to help narrow it down.. (the standard task manager doesn't seem to always list them in order of load..)

Any suggestions??

THANKS!

P.S. with some 42 process loading at startup, I'm hoping to avoid having to disable all and then reenable 1 by 1... I've already tried eliminating via msconfig and startup.. so - trying this next level.. thanks..

Hi all running to Dell Inspirion computers. The OS on both is Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I am trying to learn how to speed up computers. I know adding RAM is an option and uninstalling programs. The other day someone told me to reduce the load on the CPU, so my question is in task manger if there are processes that are using up the CPU can I kill them? How to know which ones are OK to kill? Also if I do how do I prevent them from starting up next time I reboot the computer? Any help for this beginner would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance:cool

You don't want to do that. Suppose your antivirus is updating and using a lot of the CPU power - you want to let it update.
Before you kill anything, be sure you know what it is doing.

Install CCleaner
http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/ccleaner_slim.html
Run it and in the left pane, click on Tools. Then click on startup.
Down towards the bottom right you'll see a button "save to text file". Click it and post that file as an attachment to your next post. That will let us see what you have running when the computer starts.

I use WinPatrol to allow me to disable things that keep trying to run at startup (like an intel graphics icon near the clock).
http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/ccleaner_slim.html

Both CCleaner and WinPatrol are free. You can opt to pay for WinPatrol. BillP runs sales once in awhile and I managed to get a copy for 99˘ when he had a sale.

After many updates and re-installing some programs, I am concerned that I might not be running the most optimized system. I get very slow response time even moving from one window to another. I have teenagers who visit social networking sites (facebook, myspace) and at one point had limewire installed. I took that program off but feel that my PC is still extremely sluggish and non-responsive. I installed avira antivirus (which is doing a complete system scan this very minute!) but, I really would like to know what is safe and what is not safe to have installed on my pc. I have a netflix account and my son watches free content - he also plays games from the internet. Mainly, I would like to see what processes I can safely disable so that my computer runs BETTER...

I have tried various anti virus programs and even restore points but nothing seems to resolve this. Have had this problem for 2 years now. I do play Mafia Wars frequently, but can only play that in "safe mode" which seems to be the only mode I can use without it crashing.

Answer:Toshiba WinVista 32bit locks up; slow startup & slow process

Is your Toshiba running the same OS as shipped with it?

Have you thought about trying to update the drivers?

Toshiba = https://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/pubLogin.jsp (No login needed for drivers, only the forums)

What is the model?

I would backup anything you would hate to lose just in case before doing anything.

I would also suggest running a hard drive diagnostic and a memory test.

This Seagate test should work on your hard drive.

Please adviseUsing MS BootVis I have analyzed my boot. It takes 141 seconds for my X61 to boot. Everything including video but not shell is loaded within 20 seconds. Then there is a a 110 second period of periodic small disk and CPU activities with two large disk and CPU blocks within. At about 132 seconds the shell starts to load, the shell load is completed at 141 seconds and then the processes start to load. The process loads take another 100 seconds.My major concern is the 140 second boot. This is a relatively new phenomena but I can not point to any particular action that lead to this boot performance catastrophe.I run MS OneCare with regular virus scans. I have run CCleaner to remove all temp files and clean up the registry. I have reviewed processes and services being loaded and removed those that I as an amateur thought could be removed. Please note that for business reasons my entire hard drive is encrypted using True Crypt and I also run a Checkpoint VPN service. I have been using these for some time prior to the boot problem.

I did a re-install of Windows, and since then, my G-mail Notifier tries to check my e-mail before my Wifi connection is established- resulting in an error.

Considering 15 seconds is how long it takes my PC to boot to desktop, it's like I'm waiting twice as long for my PC to be internet usable.Is there a way I can advance the priority during start up for loading the wireless adapter driver?

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!

Used to have win 7, upgraded to 10 a couple weeks ago.

Randomly yesterday the computer turned off. I turned it back on and it said it shut down incorrectly and it was going to go through the repair process. It kept going through a loop and would never complete that process. It gave me some other options such as system restore which I tried but it could not find any restore points. Then I tried another option which was the last viable one, unfortunately I don't recall what it was, but I remember it implied to me that it would be rolling back my operating system to Windows 7 instead of 10, 7 being my previous OS.
I let this run over night and I came back to it in the morning and it was still sitting there. I turned the computer off and then back on and it automatically went back into that process.

I am unsure if my hard drive is faulty or if the OS is corrupted or something.

Can I do something in BIOS to bypass this and get into windows? Should I reinstall windows on this harddrive, or buy a new one?

Thankyou for any feedback and information.

Any kind of attempt to load something new (a streaming music app like Pandora) will not work. I can exit Firefox but cannot end the process (firefox.exe). The only way to restart Firefox is to restart the computer. I've reinstalled Firefox and started from scratch, but it hasn't worked.

Any suggestions?

Answer:Firefox locks up, won't load any websites or end process

Have you tried other browsers to see if its just Firefox?

I was reading an article referred to me from another thread on the Windows OS boot process, and while reading, I couldn't help but wonder --
When a computer turns on, why can't it start loading the OS earlier on in the boot process?
Regarding the gradual unfolding of a computer's boot processes from power-on -> OS loaded, why are there so many "hoops" to jump through in the boot process? It seems like the BIOS has to point to this location, this location can then read that location, that location can then load this location, this location runs this to load that location, etc., progressively higher and higher level. Even accessing a hard drive, it seems like there are multiple incarnations of "drivers" that need to be used until the highest-level drivers within the OS can take over.

I can sort of understand why it's necessary for a lifeless piece of machinery be able to go from a powerless, very low-level functionality and climb the ladder to higher functionality (with analogies like needing to start in lower gears to work up speed toward higher gears), but as far as computers go, I don't particularly understand the specifics of why it can't be done in less "hoops". I'd guess it's a large part of what the BIOS->UEFI transition is for -- a higher-level intermediary between powerless low-level hardware and higher-functioning OS abilities...?

I think I can catch the drift analogy-wise, but if anyone... Read more

Well which parts of the procedure do you have questions about? If you pick out a particular step, we can explain why it is necessary.

I'm running Windows Vista on my laptop. I've had the machine for two years without any problems until recently (about a month ago).

Vista fails to boot 2 out of 3 times I start my machine (everyday it is like this). Also, it crashes once a day (not to a BSOD though). I often get error messages saying that host processes have stopped working. It crashed to a BSOD just after the boot up problem started (the same day).

I've tried system restore 3 times, but the system still seems to be very unstable.

I've attached the BSOD file package in a reply.

? OS - Vista SP1
? x86 (32-bit)
? What was original installed OS on system? Vista SP1
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? OEM
? Age of system (hardware) 2 years
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? 2 years. No.
? CPU - AMD Athlon X2 Dual-Core QL-60 1.90 GHz
? Video Card - ATI Radeon 3100
? MotherBoard - ???
? Power Supply - brand & wattage Toshiba, 65 W

Answer:Vista fails to load 2 times out of 3, crashes regularly, host processes stop working

I jsut reformated an old PC, and have installed XP with SP2. I have wintasks 5 pro trial version running while I attempt to track down this problem

I have 2 processes in taskmanager running on my pc

UCEHGO.EXE
IXJWGDTBRAJHTYSVDSSSU.EXE-26E575D5.EXE

These files do not exist.

I have logged on with the admin account, set explorer to show all system and hidden files, checked thru a dos prompt with the attrib command to list in case it was hidden there.

There are .pf files of these in the C:\Windows\prefach directory, which I have removed but retain a copy on a different hard drive.

Winstasks will take care of IXJWGDTBRAJHTYSVDSSSU.EXE-26E575D5.EXE if I run it and remove it from the startup. With UCEHGO, I try and nothing happens in the program and the process stays put.

I have checked thru the registry to see if there are any entries relating to these 2 processes, and cannot find any.

I have also tried to do a search on the web for those 2 files but do not get any results.

Does anyone know what these files are or how I might be able to remove UCEHGO.exe from starting on bootup?

Answer:Processes running in Taskmanager, but no file that process says its running from

Those look like trojan files. If they are running processes..then they ARE in the system and the registry. Download hijackthis and post your log in the SECURITY section..not here. Someone will go through it for you.

Hey everybody,

This is my first post and I am trying out 7 on my Acer Aspire One netbook. I know its not very powerful, but it is running 7 nicely (when it does run..)

In any case, I am dual booting 7 and XP from this 1.6 atom, 1gb ram netbook. The install always goes smoothly and so do most programs. However, I will get BSODs regularly when the system is under load doing lots of tasks. The error messages seem to be different every time. I have gotten volsnap.sys, bad pool caller,and lots more. Superfetch will often crash as well. The screens flash by so quickly I can't always see the exact error messages.

These are appearing after clean installs of 7 with 2-3 programs installed. I have attached one of the minidumps if that would help, but any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks in advance!

Reed

Answer:5-6 full re-installs, still BSODs under process load on Aspire One

I got this also.. I think it is an audio driver issue.. did you get music whtn this crashes?

Since about a few weeks ago I noticed that when I leave my PC idle, and if I don't press any key or use the mouse for about 20 to 30 minutes, some rogue svchost.exe process will start utilizing about 20-40% of CPU resources.

As soon as I move the mouse pointer or press any key (which is necessary if I'm to find out which process it is), that process seems to vanish completely and the CPU load goes back to normal.

I tried to locate which particular svchost.exe file it is by leaving sysinternals process explorer running (I hoped to find out its PID) but it seems that even its PID gets changed from one time to another. It seems that the process not only stops using a lot of CPU resources when the PC is not idle anymore, but that it completely stops running.

I ran ESET Smart Security 8 several times and it doesn't find anything suspicious.

Does anyone have some suggestions as to how I could locate the problematic process and hopefully get rid of it once and for all?

Answer:Rogue svchost.exe process stealthily causes high CPU load

Just some ideas.

Check if you have anything Scheduled.
Check and see if you have your security System to scan.
Check and see if indexing is completed.
Check and see if you have MRT running.
Check and see if you have any Auto Updating programs.
Do you have any Auto Cloud backup programs running

I would also recommend running Malwarebytes to be sure.

Question: slow processes

hello out there!

this may sound silly, but some of our units here in the office, are slow.
slow on processes.
we're quite having a hard time figuring out, because it randomly happens, say occasional.
we're running windows 7 pro, with updates as well as the anti virus. net is good/stable with static IPs.
also, most users are only using MS Office, Word & Excel, and minimal web browsing since it's filtered with fortinet.
any suggestions, advised or help will be highly appreciated, especially that some users are impatient, and would just reboot the units immediately.

thanks

happy new year to all!!!
 

Answer:slow processes

Have you tried resmon from Start "Search Programs and Files" to see what processes are being using? This way you can narrow down the application that is the culprit and eliminate the problem app.

Just my two cents worth.

I?m experiencing very annoying issue. CPU loaded with System Idle Process always. Because of that there is serious lag in iterfase. Problem appeared almost sumultaniusly on there different PCs. Using ?Process Explorer? and going to System Idle Process - Threads I?ve found processes with names:
ntoskrnl.exe!KiDespatch Interrupt+0x650 (on one PC)
or
ntoskrnl.exe!KiCpuId+0x6a0 (on two others)

I have three diffenent machines - one old acer laptop, one modern desktop and wmware virtual machine running on macbook. All have same OS - win 7 ultimate sp1. All of them are in the same network.

I?ve tried to localise issue by removing services and applications from startup - nothing, I?ve scanned machines with microsoft security essentials, Dr Web CureIT and Kaskpersky virus removal tool. Still nothing.

CPU get loaded as soon as system starts. Number of ntoskrnl.exe instances equals to number of CPU kernels. 1, 2 and 8 in my case on different PCs .

I?ve been googling the whole Sunday - nothing helped. Some suggest that it is hardware related... apparently it is not as it happend to three complitely different computers.

Hey guys,

Recently I've installed Norton Antivirus 2005 and the PC now starts up *sooooo* slowly! I don't understand why something as important as antivirus and firewall takes so much CPU power, it's enough to make people turn it off!

Anywho, whilst I'm waiting for the hard drive to stop going crazy, i thought I'd take the liberty of viewing task manager to see what's draining all the CPU...and mostly it's Norton, but there are some randoms of which I know nothing, such as LU~COMS~1.exe and, when the computer goes into screen saver Dfrgfat.exe which constantly uses to hard drive after about 15 mins of inactivity (usually when the screen saver comes on)

Surely I don't need nearly 40 processes running all the time? Most of them I don't even know what they are. Anything to speed up the PC really...any programs I can use? I've done a defrag not too long ago and run for spyware like twice a week.

Anywho, I've included a Hijack this log with all the running processes, hopefully something will show up as the culprit. Cos I don't think I've got a really **** system, it should be able to run smoothly - well I thought so (my specs are below)

Thanks
Dan

Thanks in advance for the help ! I have always had great experiences here and this forum is top notch!

My problem stems from my wife disabling the antivirus to install a program and she left it that way. I run Avira and have scanned the PC with SuperAntiSpyware and MalwareBytes which took off some minor items.

The problem is that the PC takes forever to load the OS and other programs. Sometimes when I am using even the browser, I will be typing along and nothing will appear on the screen. Then in a couple of seconds or so the text will appear. There have been some intermittent video issues now and then where the screen rolls or turns white. In general things are running slow. I am now going to post the loge required. There is also a process running a connection to the internet called ApplicationUpdater.exe that I think is not good! The Attach file requested is small so zipping will not be necessary. Thank you again!

UPDATE - Forgot to mention there was a message when I ran the scan in HJT, it said that HJT was denied write access to the hosts file!

Hey guys, i'm new to posting on this forum but I have viewed it a couple times before.

Lately my computer has been running slower and harsher than before.. it's been quite good up until late. It'll take a bit longer to load websites.. longer to load the java applet for games I play.. it'll just be generally slow to navigate through sites and windows, and all my windows will even freeze completely from time to time, and I have to end the tasks manually which takes awhile as well.

So, I went into my processes and checked all of em with Uniblue's process indentifier thing. All of them were safe, but I have 5 "svchost.exe" processes..

I went further into this researching what's going on and I came across a small article from a guy saying that viruses often disguise themselves as "svchost.exe" because it's a process that is required to run on your computer. Now, I think that I only need one of these and can delete the rest.. but I don't want to risk deleting the proper one because I know the damage that it causes.

I notice that there's three different "usernames" they are coming from.. System, Net. Service and Local Service. This might be a hint, do you guys know?



^Here's the processes.

And my comp. specs are...

Microsoft Windows XP Pro
Version 2002
Service Pack 2

Intel (R) Pentium(R) M
1.73GHz processor
1.73GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM

Thanks for looking at this guys I hope someone has an idea how to fix this.

Answer:Odd processes=slow computer?

svchost.exe is a legitimate process 99% of the time. It will run multiple times because it is the executable that runs most of your services (click here for more info on svchost). It is true, some viruses disguise themselves as this program, and if you find any running from any location other than %systemroot%/system32 then it is probably a virus.

If I were you, I would start by running disk cleanup, then defragmenting. Also, if you haven't already, you should download anti-spyware programs (they are free so don't worry), like Adaware, or Spybot S&D. These often catch programs which are't classified as viruses, but will still affect your pc's performance negatively.

If you are still experiencing performance problems, then look over our Five Steps at Removing Malware . Follow the instructions listed in those threads, and make a note of any steps you cannot complete.

Sorry if this is a repeat, but this is the third time I've typed this up because I keep getting a blank screen following a message that says "we're sorry for the delay in processing" when I go to post!

Anyway, Hello and thank you in advance to anyone who can provide me assistance on this issue!

My computer has been running significantly slower as of late and none of my normal scans are finding anything (avast!, super anti-spyware, malwarebytes, ccleaner, adv. system care 5). I figured it might be something more complex, which also means out of my league. I noticed the issue after installing some windows updates yesterday. When I am listening to winamp my music skips and breaks up whenever I use any other programs, and this never used to be an issue. Here are the requested logs, and thanks again for any help you can provide me!

Hi,

I was just workin on my pc when suddenly it started going really slow, after checking task manger I saw there where 82 processes running, some where in there more then once ( scvhost.exe),

On the forums is showed that this is normal, and scvhost always has more then one process running.

There's definitely something wrong because my Process usage is Either running round 85% and staying there, OR dropping from 17 - 20 to 60 - 70, really weird

I restarted my PC in safe mode, and scanned which found 2 trojans, i deleted those succesfully but the problem is still there,

Here's a screen shot of my Taskmanager View photo | DumpYourPhoto - A free and easy photo hosting service

Ill post a Hijack log to i dont know if this would be usefull, but the more info the better look you guys can get i think ( dont know al that much about pc's), been looking around for 2 days, only found this problem solution for Windows XP,

Hi guys, my system seems to be running pretty slow, and I get a good amount of packetloss sometimes across the board on all servers when I play video games. It's like my system has something running in the background, or that its downloading something like if you had an antivirus or something running or checking files. When I look at the processes, I don't notice anyting however, but I thing I have a lot of broken files and such on my system I'd like to clean up in case one of them is causing the problems. Can someone please analyze this HJT log and let me know what steps and which items I should be getting rid of?

Thanks in advance!

hi guys, my system seems slow, like something is running in the background. Not all the time, but often, and I was wonder if I have some extra stuff or a trojan or something I need to delete and get rid of. Here is my HJT log, thanks in advance!

Also, I did get the blue screen of death earlier today, and did a system restore for 5 days back, and it seems fine now mostly. I think the problem was I loaded a 32 bit application on my system and I'm running 64bit Vista ultimate, and the runtime it loaded was the wrong one.

Anyway, here is the log, thanks in advance!

Answer:Very slow computer, too many processes

Relevance 45.1%

I'm not sure where to post this issue and understand it may be moved.
I'm fairly sure that my system is clean of a virus or malware but will yield to the experts...
I have a Dell 1545 laptop running Win 7.
I'm having issues with slow start up and DL Autoruns to help with that but still have a slow start up.
The system currently has 68 running processes which I feel is too many.
IE runs and launches slow. Sometimes I have to click on links 3-4 times to make them work and others it just speeds right along. IE seems to hang a good bit and try to figure out what it's doing.
I am fairly sure the system is having issues with add-ons.
My computer will also just randomly go to sleep even when I'm typing or clicking on links. I then have to wake it back up or sometimes must re-boot.
I run McAfee total protection and Malwarebytes anti-malware. Both have recently been run and updated and I found nothing.
I have had these issues for months maybe a year or more and Dell's only recommendation was to re-install windows and all my programs.
I'm not sure if any new programs in the last year have affected the system.
 
I know this info is vague and I can provide more details as needed. I will subscribe to the thread and await further direction.
Thanks again for all the amazing work you do.

Hi, Laptop has been getting gradually slower over the months. It is now too slow to use. Regular IE 'not responding' and restarts required. I currently have 62 processes running and think this is too many? Including 10 x svchost.exe using over 40k memory.I have a Hijackthis report if required!Thanks

Answer:Does running 62 processes slow down PC?

Are you using IE8? If so, I would suggest you uninstall it in add/remove and revert back to IE7 which is just as secure without it bogging down your PC like IE8 does. Then set your PC to manually install updates and then set IE8 so it doesn't load up again. Then you can set your PC to automatically load up critical updates again.Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Hope someone has come across this problem before and can help....

Basically, I have a laptop with Windows 7 installed and when it boots I have about 70-80 Processes running.

With 24 hours I have over 600 processes running and most of the 4GB of memory is used up, maybe 80-95%, and the laptop will hardly respond. for instamce to open IE, it will take 4 or 5 minutes. CPU usage is around 0-20%.

The processes are made up of multiples of various programs, depending on what I have run previously. For instance i can have 7-10 Adobe Acrobat processes, or 20-30 IE processes.

It seems that when programs are opened and closed, although the program closes the process does not end, and more system processes just keep appearing as thet start and stop int he background, the processes do not teminate and then when it restarts an new process is created.

I have scanned for visuses, but nothing found.

Any help would be appreciated as I can not even killt he processes manually. after a few hours the laptop has to be restarted. After 24 hours i have to power off completely without shutting down as I am unable to shutdown safley.

Hi, I'm trying to help my friend clean up her laptop. I was worried that she may have a malware issue so I sought help over at the malware removal forum, but as it turns out the issue isn't likely malware at all.

The laptop is running slower than it should. There are very many processes running in the task manager window, many of which have the 32* after the extension. Whenever the laptop reboots I get the error message "Driver support has stopped working
Windows is checking for a solution to the problem."

Another frequent error message that I get is this one. The AC power adapter type cannot be determined. Your system will operate slower and battery will not charge. This problem might be solved by: Ensure the plug is inserted completely for best system operation. Connect a Dell 65W AC adapter or higher.

Yesterday I got an error message that said this. pcdrui.exe The exception unkown software exception (0xe0434352)occurred in the application at location 0xfccbb3dd.

I opened the device manager to see if there are drivers that need to be updated and there were two listed. One is, Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter, Device Status: This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)

Hello.

My laptop has been taking an unusually long time to boot up. I have noticed that it is not due to applications loading on startup. When I view the task manager it shows that I have 75 running processes. Nothing too out of the ordinary to me showed up in the scan logs. However, I would appreciate it if someone could point out where my computer is flawed in respect to all these unknown running processes and slow boot time. Applications also take a long time to load.

a couple other points - also what is your drive size and how much free space is on it. depending upon the size, you need 15-20 percent free space. finally if you have more than one antivirus installed that could also slow you down..

As of this morning the computer runs excrutiatingly slow, especially on login.
Explorer locks itself up at times.
Way too many processes running in the task manager by the looks of it.
Win2k Pro SP4

win32.trojan.bho came up this morning
had outerinfo somehow on my conputer, ran the uninstaller already

I do have a kaspersky report form earlier today if you want me to post that.
Using HJT 2.0.0 because 2.0.2 always crashes when I try and make a log.

Edit **********************************
From time to time my desktop icons all dissapear and so does my start bar. I've been fixing this by end tasking explorer.exe and new tasking it again.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400. A year or so ago I decided to get a 300gb external hd to back up my internal hard drive, and to store any and all new downloads, particularly media--games, videos, mp3, etc. My first query concerns running processes/programs simultaneously through my internal and external hd, does that affect speed?
Furthermore, for the past few months the puter has been getting steadily slower. I have upgraded my RAM so there is 1gb in one slot and 512mb in the other. I have cleaned my disk, deleted unnecessary programs, defragged, virus and adaware scans, etc. However, my boot time, load time, download time is all still getting progressively slower. On the internet, pages will sometimes take several minutes to load or won't load at all. I just ran a HijackThis scan and here is my logfile. When I say, "Jump" I want my puter to say "how high" right away, you know?

IBM Thinkpad using XP. Bought in 2002-2003. Have used AVG antivirus for years. After the last update (last thing added to hard drive) the computer has been really really slow in processing. We did a defrag, but that didn't seem to help. What do I try next?

Have you tried to uninstall then reinstall it. I have had the same thing happen to me and it helped a lot.

Hello - my laptop has been slow lately. I opened task manager and have 57 processes running at the same time - I cannot really identify what these are except for that all/most of them are .exe files. I've run my virus-scan and also run spysweeper and still can't get under the 57.

I have a screen shot I'll attach. Can someone help me and tell me how to fix this issue? What is the normal amount of processes that should be running? My computer keeps locking up.

Thanks,

Emily

Answer:Slow laptop - too many processes running at once

There's only about 19 processes showing in your screen shot. Could you attach a screenshot after you click on the "Show process from all users" button?

The only one's that I'd suggest removing (on the current screenshot) are the AOL/AIM and Adobe Flash one's.

I just bought a compaq presario laptop a month ago, and now it's having problems. Every time I turn it on for a few hours, it starts to run at close to 100% CPU constantly, even when I'm not doing anything. I check the running processes, no single process seems to be doing the thing. It would be Mozilla using 80% of the CPU power while tskmgr.exe uses 20% one second, then next second it would be explorer.exe using 50% of the CPU power while svchost.exe using 50% of the CPU power. Sometimes, the processes would show that System Idle Process is at 95%, while the performances tab would indicate that 100% CPU power is being used, which is absolutely confounding to me. End tasking processes don't work, it'll just be different processes or some imaginery process taking 100% of the CPU power.

Can someone tell me what this problem is? I've done a virus scan and a spyware scan, nothing seems to come from it. I'll try some different adware/spyware scanning programs, but I doubt that's the issue.
 

Answer:Random processes take 100% CPU, slow computer

For openers, let's run spybot and adaware [gotten from links below]. After that I also suggest running Hijack This[link below] then follow the below instructions fully, and post the log in this thread, whereupon it'll be analysed by those-in-the-know here and then appropriate fixes will be suggested..

follow the next instructions on posting the Hijack This log here;

It’s very important that you save the log to its own permanent folder on your hard drive, such as Program Files/Hijack This, or My Documents/Hijack This, (NOT a temporary files folder) or you may loose the ability to undo any changes you make, so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

Close all open windows/and any open web browers and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad. Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET;- Await further analysis here.
