Slow XP, slow startup, and problems with Internet Explorer

Question: Slow XP, slow startup, and problems with Internet Explorer

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.

Preferred Solution: Slow XP, slow startup, and problems with Internet Explorer

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 XP, slow startup, and problems with Internet Explorer

Use Ad Aware (http://www.ad-aware.com) and Spybot S&D (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html). Make sure you update them with their update feature.

Hi

I am experiencing extremely slow startup and internet explorer seems to take an eternity to open up the browser and respond.

I have tried a number of system utility packages for cleaning the system and the registry with no joy.

There seems to be a lot of activity when I look at the Task Manager on startup but have no idea what is really happening.

I have just downloaded a program called staruplist from MSN site and again this seems to have a lot of programs listed on startup.

I use a the PC a great deal nut still seem to be a novice so any help would be gratefully received ( in idiots language if possible)

Many thanks in advance

Neil
 

Answer:Slow Startup and Internet Explorer

Hi Welcome to MG.

You say you seem to have a lot of programs listed for startup. Some of these will be needed but others may not.

Have you run Ad-Aware and or Spybot to make sure you have no malware loading. If you haven't then do so. Then post the list of the startup items and we can tell you what is and what isn't necessary.

When Computer restarts, everything freezes when loading back up again. Takes almost 15mins for start up. Also, Internet explorer freezes periodically. I have a Dell XPS with upgrades to most hardware for gaming. This started when using MindCraft Beta version prior to full version launch.

Thanks.

Hello,

I have for the last few weeks, experienced an exceptionally slow startup for internet explorer and media player. When I try to start explorer, it freezes for about one minute before you can click on any links on the page. It also does this when a new window or tab is opened. Once the page has opened and the approx. minute lag has passed, it functions normally and I can browse the web. Clicking on any link which opens a new window will again cause this lag, but only on the new page. I can click back to the already opened page and browse normally. I have upgraded to IE 7 but the problem is the same.

For Windows Media player, a movie will open but no controls become available for about 30 seconds. Once the controls are available, it functions normally. If I leave the program open, I can click on different movies and they will pop up and function normally without the lag which is present on the initial startup of the program.

In addition, my on-screen ibm controls for volume have ceased to be displayed and my touchpad/trackpoint won't retain changes made so that only the trackpoint is on, with the touchpad off. It reverts back to certain settings upon computer restart.

I have run Norton, Adaware, cwshredder, AVG, ATF cleaner, Ewido, Kaspersky, Panda, fixwareout, vundofix, registry cleaner, and many others including the ones listed in the preparation section of this site, but the problem persists. A few weeks ago, I would get the occasional pop-up from... Read more

Answer:VERY SLOW Internet Explorer and Media Player Startup

Hi Tom and welcome to TSF.

My name is Iain and I will be helping you clean your system.

There's nothing showing in your log, so let's try an online scan. Could be more of a Windows problem.


Perform an online scan with Internet Explorer with Panda ActiveScan Click on located at the bottom of the page.
A "pop up" window will appear. * Please ensure that your pop up blocker doesn't block it *
Enter your e-mail address, country, and state & click "Free Online Scan" *The download of the 8 MB Panda's ActiveX control will take place*
Begin the scan by selecting If it finds any malware, it will offer you a report.
Please ignore any entry it finds and the offer to buy the program to remove the entry, as we will address this later.
Click on then click
* You needn't remain online while it's doing the scan but you have to re-connect after it has finished to see the report.
* Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan

Post back the Panda log.

Takes about 1-2 minutes to load, but is fine after that. I suspect it is some kind of toolbar or program that accidently got loaded, but I don't know how to look for it or how to remove it.

Answer:Internet Explorer running extremely slow on Startup

Hi


Linked to your thread in malware if anyone wishes to review your Hijackthis log ( as inline logs are not permitted, attached fine ) Malware thread http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=159362


Have you followed the information on startups that Chaslang posted in that thread above?

Also have you started IE in No-Addons mode? Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools, and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) and see if this helps, if it does then you have an add-on that is causing this so start in IE normal mode then disable all addons and re-enable one at a time to find the faulting one.

Answer:Problems With My Pc Going Slow And Internet Explorer

Use the application to quarantine all that it has found. All but the first instance appear to be tracking cookies which, while not something one wants, are not that harmful.
A sluggish computer may be caused by other things than malware. Have you performed maintenance on your computer recently? (cleaned unneeded files, reviewed applications that launch on start up, run checkdisk and defragmented your hard drive).
Regards,
John

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.

Hi,
This is my first post here, so I hope that I follow all of the rules. And thanks in advance for any help. My computer has been running slow for a while, and I think one of my kids might have gone to a website that allowed some malware in. My OS is Windows XP SP3. I have noticed a few things, 1. Had a problem with Adobe acrobat reader, it wouldn't update for some reason, and couldn't open PDF files for a while, after uninstalling and reinstalling several times, I think it is now working. Also noticed more recently when working in MS Word 03 every once in a while it won't let me save files. Now I am noticing that when I have Internet Explorer open for a while, IE tries to pop open a new window, to which the IP address is blocked by K9 web protection 91.212.226.6 is the IP. After googling this IP address, I found a few posts leading me to think there might be a trojan kicking around on my pc. I have run MBAM and Hijackthis in an attempt to find the culprit, but MBAM comes up clean, and I can't find it on Hijackthis. Any help woould be appreciated.
Thanks!

Answer:Malware logs, firefox freeze, comp slow, internet explorer slow

Welcome to Major Geeks!

Please read ALL of this message including the notes before doing anything.

Pleases follow the instructions in the below link:

READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide
and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.
**** If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going. ****
Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not. MGtools will frequently run even when all other tools will not.

After completing the READ & RUN ME and attaching your logs, make sure that you tell us what problems still remain ( if any still do )!
Helpful Notes:

If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode, you can run the steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:
Starting your computer in Safe mode

If you have problems downloading on the problem PC, download the tools and the manual updates for SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes ( links are given in the READ & RUN ME) onto another PC and then burn to a CD. Then copy them to the problem PC. You will have to skip getting updates if (and only if) your internet connection does not work. Yes you could use a flash drive too but flash drives are writeable and infections can spread to them.

A couple months ago I followed the procedures to remove a Virtumonde, however, after doing that my destop and Internet Explorer were slow. The individual helping me said it was a software issue and to start a thread in there. I finally have some time to take care of this!

I have already ran all of the read/run me first with exception to MGTools and MSConfig. All of the scans so far are clean. However, I have noticed my Sophos picking up a Troj Downloader?? the last few times I have been on my computer. I will patiently await your directions/assistance. Thank you!
 

Answer:Slow desktop, slow Internet Explorer

As it appears you have picked up another malware issue since they last helped you, you would need to start a new thread again in the Malware Forum and work through the Read & Run Me First again, posting the requested logs. Once your computer has a clean bill of health from the Malware Fighters we can start to work on the issue of the slow desktop and IE.

Until we know it is clean there really is no benefit in working through the slow issues you are experiencing as they could be directly related.

Once you are clean, come back to this thread as soon as possible so we can work on this issue before you risk getting any further malware

Hello Techspot!!!!

I have had my laptop for nearly 3 years but I wouldn't deem it to be a poor performance laptop. Recently I have been getting slow internet, poor keyboard response and slow scrolling, and it is very frustrating!!! I share the BT 3 homehub with good connection speed which was checked and found fine! My housemates laptop has started having the same problem as mine and I really want to fix this issue. The internet, keyboard and scrolling speeds vary everyday but overall are slow performers. I have looked through some of the threads and have seen people posting long threads of code etc :/ Is there anyone out there who has the time and patience to help me fix this problem? It would be most appreciated!!!

Many Thanks

Did you every have good response? HOW long ago?

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.

Hi, i am new at this, so bear with me lol

We have just moved our XP computer into the living room, and connected it to a 58kb dial-up connection. We installed AVG 8 and everything was running fine

Now we've installed Windows Live OneCare Family safety on the machine so we can monitor my borther and sisters internet usage.

Now, the computer runs extremely slowely, Windows Explorer continually crashes, meaning we have great difficulty opening My Documents, and My Computer or anything that requires Explorer to open

As well as this, now the internet is majorly slow... even for bloomin dial-up, we used to get at least 9kbps, but now its shot down to between 2.5 and 1.5 kbps

AVG is now continuously scanning... even outside of scheduled scans, and constantly wants to update :S

And finally, i have now noticed that small files i dont use very frequently have begun to dissapear from the system!!! music files, images, word docs etc.

We have tried defragging it, scandisk, using AdAware SE Personal 2005, AVG Scans, and they all come up with negligeable results.

As well as this, now the pc wont install files for Trend Micro Online scans to run... so we cant even work it out that way :S

I have a suspicion this could be something to do with OneCare, or Multiple Viruses in the system that have somehow hidden themselves from AVG

PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!!

Normally my computer would start up very fast(once I logged in, it would have everything ready in under a minute) but as of recently, once I log in, all the process will run(I can open up task manager and watch everything running) but explorer will not boot for like 3 minutes. I only have 4 programs run on startup: Zonealarm, rainmeter, rocketdock, and msn and all antivirus scans show nothing, so anyone know what could be causing it to go so slow?

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.

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

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.

Since I'm a quite impatient person I restarted it several times resulting in the same thing, Windows crashing. Realising that I had other things to do I left my computer for a while.

A few hours later I tried again. This time it worked. The computer was slower than usual at the start and I had to leave it working a while before a I could use it. But right after that I ran a scan. In both Microsoft Security Essentials and avast Antivirus. Microsoft Security Essentials found a virus. I think it was located somwhere in Win32. It deleted it automatically.

After that I was away for a few days but when I came back home it was even slower. Now it can't even load the desktop normally. Sometimes it shows all the icons, but nothing will open and windows crashes when I'm trying. Soetimes the icons doesn't load properly.
Weirdly enough safe mode works perfectly fine. I'm writing this thread in safe mode with network. I have opened my computer and blown away dust and such thinking that might cause some minor problems. Nothing happened.

Now I'm browsing for solutions to the problem. sfc /verifyonly finds nothing and neither does sfc ... Read more

Hi all.
My problem is that when my computer starts windows explorer freezes and my background turns white. I have to manually close explorer through task manager, by deleting the process, and then starting explorer again. In the first few minutes when started, my computer is acting really slow.

I am unable to do system restore to an earlier point (it says an error happened and it was unsuccessful). I have run kaspersky to delete virus, but that didn't help. I recently installed a program called SpeedFan. I uninstalled that, but it didn't solve the problem.

I'm running out of ideas on what to do, to fix this problem. I would like to avoid a full system recovery..

Is this a problem seen before? Could anyone help ?

My pc is so slow that it takes ages to play a song in wmp11...etc etc.
Ive used tools like ad-aware and registry mechanic, tune up utilities, etc etc. But still no improvement. It used to be just fine, until I installed some pay-for-viewing add program. I have uninstalled it since then, but the slowness remains. And the processor is hogged, at the highest level, even though i killed many a startup processes.

This has been going on for a while. I've done extensive search for this particular problem but have not come across anything like it. Can someone please help me trouble shoot? I think this problem would be quite interesting to get to the bottom of.

My specs are XP SP3 on a HP 6730b Laptop. I'm checking the other specs atm and just noticed another symptom. When I go to sys properties > general, where there would usually be the comp details, there is nothing showing for a few minutes. Now that it's loaded, I see that it is a P8400, 2.93(4)GB RAM. I'm running AVG, Ad-Aware and Spybot, all running scans throughout the day.

The first noticeable symptom is during the login screen. If I click the user and enter the password within 20 secs, there's no issue. After that time, it takes about 15 mins to bring up the password field after clicking the user.

Once the logged in startup begins, all the auto load programs are loaded very promptly. Though anything explorer related (start, explorer, taskbar) takes a long time to respond. Every other program is fine while these things are delayed. It's just a matter of getting to the other programs without explorer functionality.

Also, this is probably the biggest issue, task manager is totally non responsive. It will load after a min but does not respond. I have Google Desktop which has a resource monitor widget and I can see that there is very little load on the comp during all of this (I've tried dese... Read more

Answer:Weird Startup Issue - Slow Explorer, No Task Manager

Any error reports in event viewer.
How long do the same things, that do load in Safe Mode, take to load in Safe Mode.
Looking at it from a virus viewpoint, we are of course only looking at AVG. Is it the free edition or the full paid edition.
Has chkdsk reported any errors, particularly bad sectors.

I went to my computer today, and it froze up. On attempt to open task manager, I got the blue screen and shut it down. When I started it up again, it took close to 45 minutes to an hour for it to start up fully. Explorer.exe brought up error messages constantly, then I also got a few from adobe, WerFault, and several AVG messages. Its finally up and running, and I was able to access the internet. I'm currently running a malware scan, but I doubt it will fix very much. I'm literally afraid to restart my computer again.

Ideas?
Thanks.
 

Answer:Extremely slow startup, explorer.exe running slowly and crashing

Yes, first as you state don't shut it down. Leaving it run won't hurt it, just shut off your monitor when you are finished for the evening.

Second, have you done any recent updating of drivers, etc.? If I read you correctly this is the first time this has happened, right?

Hi. I can't remember exactly when it started, but recently my internet has been very slow starting up, sometimes exceeding 10 minutes. It usually takes a while after clicking before anything happens, and once the IE window appears it'll be blank and unresponsive for another minute or two before it becomes useable. With Firefox the problem isn't quite as bad, but it does seem to take longer than it should most of the time.

I read some people were able to fix a slow internet startup problem by uninstalling the google toolbar, but that didn't seem to do much for me. I currently have Spybot, Spyware Guard, and Ad-Aware running on my system along with a version of Norton Antivirus and thought having multiple anti-virus/spyware apps might be causing the problem, but I've tried testing it with them off and the situation didn't seem to improve. (On a side note, is it a bad idea to have multiple programs of this type running simultaneously, and if so, which one should I use?)

I'm not sure, but it doesn't appear to be a spyware problem because the scans I've done have come back empty or nearly so and the programs haven't had trouble deleting the few detected objects. I don't know if it's linked or not, but the task manager always shows two iexplore.exe processes per window open, and occasionally two windows will appear after the long wait even though I only click the shortcut icon once.

I'm using ADSL2, I've also contacted my ISP thinking the problem may have been at their end and was advised that their end was up to speed. I have run Malware , Spyware programmes, and have kept my antivirus programme upto date, I've also run disk cleanup and defragged the hard drive but with no avail.

since then, every single boot is extremely slow, the windows sign is shimmering for 2 minutes, the windows is freezing, when I hit menu, it loads for a minute etc. I should mention that several minutes(10 minutes) after startup, the computer works properly.

I have been recently experiencing problems with slow computer start up, it used to load up really fast but now it takes 5 minutes at least until the whole thing is ready to use. Also, when playing music and then opening another application of any kind on the computer at the same time the music slows down or fades and the whole computer goes slow. I have adaware checked it, spyware checked it, defragmented it and cleaned the registry but it is making no difference at all.

The computer is an AMD Athlon(ym) XP 2700+
2.6 GHz, 512 MB of RAM

Also I am only using 13.6GB of the 37.2 GB space there is on the C Drive.

A few months back there was a virus on the computer and no firewall for a short space of time but there is now a firewall and virus checks are constantly run as well as spyware and defragmenting.

I'm not that clued up on computers as most of you will be and so would be greatful of any advice, but I dont want to risk losing anything on my computer as its very important stuff and I need this computer for work!!

Thanks for any help. Sara

One of my friends suggested to try and end rundll.exe and when I did that my taskbar and icons appeared immediately.Also, the PC has been very slow lately and also freezing every now and then. I ran TrendMicro virus scanner, AVG free and also Spyware Doctor and found nothing much. I finally decided to download HijackThis and post a log file here. The log file generated has been attached.

Answer:Slow PC and startup problems

Hello and and Welcome to BleepingcomputerPlease note we are very busy, so if I don't hear from you within 5 days the topic will be closed, If you have since resolvedyour issues I would appreciate if you would let me no so I can close this topic.I do not recommend that you have more than one anti virus product installed and running on your computer at a time. The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, then those products which do not encrypt the virus strings within them can cause other anti virus products to cause "false alarms". It can also lead to a clash as both products fight for access to files which are opened again this is the resident/automatic protection. In general terms, the two programs may conflict and cause:1) False Alarms: When the anti virus software tells you that your PC has a virus when it actually doesn't.2) System Performance Problems: Your system may lock up due to both products attempting to access the same file at the same time.Therefore please go to add/remove in the control panel and remove either Trend Micro or AVG9.Download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here and save it to your desktop.Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.Once it has finished, two logs will open.

I posted this on cnet with no responses yet so I'll post it here and maybe you guys can help me.

So yesterday I was on my laptop and everything was fine. I went to open a minimized firefox browser and everything got really slow. After I finally got the all of the tabs and the browser closed things were still not right. I restarted. After that I opened firefox and closed it. I reopened and it said it was already running. I waited a few seconds and got the same message. I opened up task manager and it was still running. The computer was still slow so I decided to do a system restore to 11/1. When it restarted after doing the restore I got a black screen with the mouse pointer. The activity light wasn't flashing so I opened up task manager and shut it down. I restarted and it was really slow to start up. Now, everything worked except windows explorer was slow to respond and would take much longer to open than normal. (Libraries button on quick launch). I did a sfc /scannow and found nothing. Next, I backed up and ran avast, superantispyware, and malwarebytes and found nothing all on full scan.

Recently, I have noticed my computer slowly degenerate. When I first load Internet Explorer, my homepage (Google) used to load rather quickly. However, I have seen the load time increase in the past couple of weeks. Also, whenever I try to open a new page, it takes forever and sometimes does not open the page at all and instead the webpage that opens is something on the line of "Page cannot be found". Sorry, I do not have the exact error message. Then, when I finally end Internet Explorer Process, it sometimes works the next time I load the page.

I am running XP on a dual core processor for a dell inspiron e1505. I currently have cable internet with a wireless connection that always has an "excellent" connection.

So I have a wireless connection at home which I use for my laptop. The problem is that quite frequently(not every time) when I start the laptop up it takes a long time for it to connect, which eventually ends with it not connecting at all. My solution for this is to restart the modem, but is there any way this can be avoided?

Answer:Slow connecting to the internet on startup

Hello crisbeto and welcome to Seven Forums.

This is one of those problems that might take some heavy duty troubleshooting since it doesn't always happen. Some of the things that could affect internet connectivity could be the antivirus suite you're using, scheduled tasks running in the background like defrag, malware on the laptop, etc. Have you tried booting into Safe Mode with Networking to see if there's any difference in connection speed?

Advanced Boot Options

You may also want to go through these tutorials to see if you can isolate your problem.

Hi there

I was originally cleaning out my computer of registry errors and temporary files using Advanced System Tweaker. After this I was normally browsing the internet when I was unable to connect to any sites.

I thought it may be my computer or my service provider but the connection on my laptop works perfectly, on the computer it is constantly showing that it's attempting to find the wireless connection. I restarted the computer multiple times but this did not help.

After restarting, my antivirus (avast!) says it's not protected and that the web shields are off. Tried to turn them back on and no change. I tried scanning with avast!, Malwarebytes and Mcafee Stinger which all came back clean.

Thinking it may have been the Advanced System Tweaker I had used earlier I restored the registries using a backup but this did not make any changes. Then I tried to perform a system restore which resulted in the computer restarting and showing me a message that no changes were made and it was unable to system restore.

I repeated the above process using different restore points as well as restoring in safe mode which provided no changes. Now the computer has a slow startup and is slow in general unlike how it used to be.

I'm completely clueless on how else I could try to solve this so I decided to ask here.
 

Answer:Slow startup, Internet disabled

Someone is probably going to help in other ways but, I had a problem almost like yours. Run the built-in disk check, it deleted files on mine then replace needed file and orphans, all worked great after that.

Several days ago, I noticed that my computer (XP) was taking a long time to boot up when I turned it on. A lot longer than it used to take. Upon startup, it sounds like my hard drive is going nuts and it takes a long time. I tried going to Start, run, msconfig and unchecking some of the 17 items that boot up when the computer is turned on. If I turn any item off, I can't access the internet at all ! I had to restore all of them with the resulting slow startup.

Then yesterday, I started having more internet access problems. When I leave the computer and then come back, the computer tells me that I'm offline and asks if I want to work offline or attempt to reconnect. Aaarrrgggghhhhh ! I click reconnect and it still says I'm offline! After Xing everything out and going back to the desktop, I can usually get back on by clicking IE. Usually but not always. During this time, my daughter is online with her computer so I know that my Comcast cable service is good.

I tried to system restore to something a while ago but it only had 3 restore points, today and the last two days . This is when I started having the trouble and now my computer says that there are no restore points prior to the trouble!

It has to be something in this computer. Can anyone help me, please?

BTW, I've run Ad-aware, Spybot and MS Antispyware. Thanks.

Answer:Slow startup. Sometimes I can't access the internet.

ok first of all, don't use IE, I would seriously consider a reformat because you said you did everything I woulda have suggested.

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

HI. I'm using a vista home basic laptop, and have objectdock, AVG free and Spybot as my preferred background utilities.

However, it's taking my computer more than 6 minutes to startup... is there any utility to SAFELY check and remove any erroneous startup entries that might be slowing down my laptop?

Also, for some particular reason, Spybot keep repeating the same three notifications every startup- something about NeroFilterCheck. The messages just tell me that Spybot has allowed the change of the programs based on my white list- my problem with this is, this notification usually happens only once after I've allowed a change. This three notifications show up every time I start up- is this a bug? or does it mean that changed values are part of the startup ang are changed everytime?

One more gripe- I uninstalled Nero 8 essentials and opted for Nero Micro (didn't need all those software utils), but whenever I see the autoplay dialog box, there are still some options about opening the DVD or Audio cd with Nero Showtime (one of the those utilities that Nero Essentials had but Nero Micro doesn't have, thank God).

Hi

I have a fairly new (January) Windows 7 Ultra Mobile laptop, with 3GB memory and an Intel Pentium processor. The model is a Toshiba T110-107

I have noticed for a while that start up times are extremely slow, and can take 10-15 minutes before I can use the computer. I have cleaned the registry with CCleaner, removed unnecessary start up programs, defragmented the hard drive and other tune up's using Advanced System Care Pro. I have scanned for viruses using Norton 360, malwarebytes anti malware and Trend Micro house call with clear results.

Also, when I shut down my computer more often than not I will get a window alerting me the programs are still running and asking if I want to force shutdown. The thing is, normally when this message is displayed it shows what programs are running, but it is just blank in my case. I'll post a screenshot if I can.

I really don't know what to try next

I'd appreciate your help

Thanks

Answer:EXTREMELY slow startup problems

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:? Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.? Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.? Not ... Read more

Answer:Solved: Slow startup and other problems

First off, let's try and deal with your slow startup and working speeds.

Try and see if there are any programs you can remove from the Start Up list, as this is one of the worst ways of slowing down your computer. When your computer turns on, it instantly wants to start loading a number of applications at once while in its booting process. To do this go to Start, All Programs, Look for Startup and remove appropriate applications.

Hold down the Windows Key and R. Type the following and press Enter: appwiz.cpl. Go thorugh the list and remove and software that you very rarely use or you don't need or use any longer, and you know they are not used by other applications. It's best you leave applications such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, Java and QuickTime installed (if already installed). Don't remove anything that you do not know or that you continue to use.

Try deleting files which you no longer need or try a Disk Defragmentation. However, please be careful and do not delete anything or change any settings that you do not know about.

Good luck

I noticed slow startup shutdown speeds a month or two ago, and have been trying to fix the problem by using all the usual scanning and detecting software. Some of my programs are slow to launch after a reboot for some reason, after I launch them the first time they lag but when I launch them a second time they pop right up, except for MSconfig which takes about 25 seconds to launch, can't figure that one out. Was having problems with my IE 10 crashing and restarting, and my ISP kept sending me e-mails about illegally downloading copyrighted material, didn't see any unauthorized wireless activity on my Gateway, so I might have had a backdoor problem or something like that. So I finally ran combofix and it took care of a lot of my problems. So far some other programs launch the way they're supposed to, no IE 10 crashing and restarting it, and no more e-mails from my ISP. But I still have slow startup shutdown speeds, and some programs slow to launch, same lag time on MSconfig. I've ran the scanners y'all usually have people run, so I can attach or paste those logs if you would like.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Hoping someone will be able to help me here. I have a Toshiba Satellite notebook that's been locking up and crashing anytime I open programs. 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.

I was referred to you guys from another user. Thanks.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

Hello,

I am experiencing a very frustrating scenario on my machine.
It started out of the blue. I have dial up still and I hardly ever
get on the internet. maybe only an occasional Google search.
It started during a period in which I had not been on the web for at least a week.
*When I click on a folder it stalls and then opens after a few seconds.
*Videos played off my hard drive stutter.
*Startup takes longer than usual.
*Basically, any task I try to perform is stalled.

I have performed the following actions:
ScanDisk
Checkdisk
Defrag
Ran Malwarebytes in Safe Mode and Standard
Ran Super Anti Spyware in Safe Mode and Standard
Ran Hijack This
I have checked programs running on Startup and cleaned that out.
I have 90GB of free space and 1GB of Ram.

I also have done in depth research into the DMA/PIO
possibility.
I am showing UDMA 5 for my HDD, and DMA for my CD/DVD.
It never displayed PIO at all anywhere. However, the symptoms
associated with a HDD reverting back to PIO match what I am seeing.
Is it possible to be in PIO mode, even though it displays DMA?

I am at a loss for what it could be...Please help...Any help would be appreciated greatly.

Answer:Slow response time. Videos stutter. Slow startup.

This may be irrelevant but when was the last time you changed the MB battery? I have had a lot of machine and still do, when the battery is dying funny things can happen. I sure looks like you have covered all the other bases!!

I was previously connected directly to my cable modem and out to the internet. I had no issues with this setup for over 3 years. I bought a Netgear WGR614 wireless router and now have the computer connected by cat5 to the WGR614. I also use a laptop and PSP with this router.

When I start my computer, after the usual startup procedure, when I try to access a webpage, both IE and Firefox hang and take about 3 minutes to show up. If I goto C: prompt and ping the same website, I get normal ping times, but the page still isn't opening. This never happened before and I didn't add any new hardware/software other than the router. Also, I do regular AAW, spybot and trendmicro scans, and I don't have any spyware/adware viruses.

The only thing I did do was give my comp a static IP to use Azureus. I've since changed that back to DHCP because Azureus seems to be working okay without a static IP. This has still not changed the slow web pages.

After this 5 minute period, every page opens/downloads fine.

WINXP SP2.

TIA for any help!
 

Answer:Slow network/internet startup with WGR614

I'd start by checking if any updated firmware exists for the router, and resetting it to factory defaults. I have to say, this sounds more like some oddball thing happening in your computer. If you now move back to a direct connection to the cable modem, does the problem go away?

Since installing the 2005 version a few days ago my boot up time to a full desktop has stretched from 1 minute (Norton 2004) to 4 minutes now. I get the 'welcome' music quickly enough but the it takes forever to load the services and start up items of which apart from I.S. there are only five. I have just un-installed the software and my system was fully booted in 45 seconds. I have tried to get an answer on the Symantec web-site but to no avail. I am running Windows XP Pro. Has anyone come across this problem or seen any reference to it, I tried Google but never got anywhere with this either. The one thing I did notice that when installing my 'Start-Up Monitor' program highlighted the fact that Norton requested about six services to run at start-up could this be the problem and if so would I benefit by changing these from 'automatic' to manual in System Services.

Hello i am having an unusual problem with windows 7 64 Bit.

I am using a belkin wireless adapter with windows 7 64 bit drivers. When i startup the computer the blue circle just keeps turning on my internet connection icon in the taskbar. The internet connection takes 2-3 mins to startup and it can be annoying every time i startup windows. I cant open some programs until it has finished starting up. Everything else in the taskbar starts up though. Even when i uninstall the drivers the same problem occurs.

Does anybody have any idea why i have this long delay?

Hi,

I'm running an HP Pavillion with Windows Vista Home Premium in 32 bit mode. At home I connect via a wireless connection to a Belkin router and when on the move I have an Orange 3G USB modem. I'm running ZoneAlarm Security suite.

I've recently found that when starting Windows with the Wireless connection on it takes an age to start and then I can connect to the router but cannot get onto the Internet. ZoneAlarm indicates that there is a lot of traffic and I'm wondering whether I have a problem with the laptop or the router.

I've run HijackThis and the log is below, if you can spot anything untoward please let me know. There does sem to be a lot of stuff that starts automatically which I never/hardly ever use such as Skype, Napster and would appreciate learning how to stop these from loading at the start.

Thanks and regards

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

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

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

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

I hope one of the informative members here can help me before I lose hair.
 
I have a home built W7 Home premium (OEM) with i72600 and MSI 5450, two internal 1TB Barracudas in RAID1. 3 video monitor setup using motherboard card for one, and the MSI for the other two. Program folders and audio to external drive. It is used 'only' for audio production with Cubase. I am connected to internet only for licensing updates and sending file via Yousendit (Hightail). I use another computer for downloading things from others.
 
I do not have this system setup for automatic updates for obvious reasons. Should I update Windows manually?
 
Suddenly, it takes way longer to boot Windows, and even after it boots, it takes an extra minute to update the icons on the screen. Actually, all the icons on the Home Screen come up at first, but then they seem to reload. Like something is updating.
 
Other strange issues happen when I have a Cubase crash, that Task Manager wont even open. Just a black screen.
 
I have direct connection to switcher directly from modem (Comcast fastest), yet my uploads disconnect via Yousendit. This doesn't happen on the other PC that is connected via that same switcher from the same input.
 
Any ideas? If there is more information that I could provide to give some insight, I will obviously provide it.
 
Any insight would be greatly appreciated! Hell, I would send some payment for an answer. I really do not wish to reinstall allof my so... Read more

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.

I copied and pasted this directly from www.pcpitsop.com, but the solution the gave me to fix it doesnt seem to be working. Could someone please give me a step-by-step on how to fix this, and can you dumb it down a little pls?

- Internet Explorer Cache Overflow -

Again, I also went to www.pcpitstop.com, and this is what came up, but the solution the gave me makes no sence to me, they tell me to go to IE>Tools>Internet Options>General Tab>Settings>View Files. Says it will open my "Temporary Internet Files" folder, which it does. The problem is, they advised me to change the folder to C:\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\content.ie5, which i cannot seem to do. They say i should see a series of 4 or more random 8 character names like "ADOZMZS1", which again, I cannot figure this out. So if anyone could please help me out here with a step-by-step walk through ( dumbed down version ), it would be most appreciated.

- Thank you

I'm new here so I am sorry if I don't give all the right information. I noticed 2 days ago that when i was online that internet explorer was very slow, i called the cable co. and they did tests on there end and said everything was fine. I have the fastest speed and it's like i'm using dial up :mad. I use my computer for my business and it's really starting to really piss me off! I did all the updates on my computer and malware remover and that didn't find anything. Is there some report that I can do on my computer to have any look at to let me know what is wrong with the internet? Once again i am sorry that i didn't give the right information.
Kind Regards, Lecia

Hi BPComputer guys and gals again,

Another person in my office has been having issues with her computer. She was downloading something on NetFlix and she stated a lot of pop ups kept popping up and it was all she could do to get them closed. Long story short, she downloaded lots of tool bars, some "memory improvment" software, and who knows what else.

I deleted the tool bars and also deleted some of the other random junk she downloaded but we are still experienceing very slow Internet Explorer that froze up twice downloading DDS. I finally put DDS on a flash drive and installed it that route.

The DDS information is attached. GMER ran but did not come up with anything...read "GMER hasn't found any system modifications". That being said, I downloaded it twice and ran it twice and neither time could I check system, section, processes, threads, or libraries.
