Hi all,

Just as of late last night the internet connections have been poor, either not connecting at all or slow. I have AVG 8.0 but it has not found any viruses....any help would be appreciated. thanks,

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: Solved: Internet connection slow, downloading slow

Hi Dano.
Are both pc's hardwired or one wireless through your router?
Are both slow at the same time?
Have you tried eliminating the router and hardwiring one pc directly through the modem.(will require a power on reset of the modem)?

Do a speed check
www.speakeasy.net/speedcheck
Any recent hardware/software changes?
Any error msgs ?

Is this cable or DSL?
Knowing some of these things will assist the techs here to delve further into the problem.

Hi, My internet is very slow. I have a asus k8v-se deluxe motherboard, and im starting to think that its the onboard ethernet port thats slow. Im directlly conected to a linksys wireless n router( the fastest one out) and all the other computers in my house go pritty fast. I just reformated my hard drive and wiped my computer completely so i shouldnt have the same problem...... but do. So if someone anyone has any suggestions as to what i should do, shoot! or if you can finda link to a fast ethernet internal card that would be great. I want to use all of my router, its 12x the speed of G. so i wanna put that to the test......... please help me. thanks -Nick
 

Answer:internet slow, great connection in house on other comps, just reformated, always slow

When you say directly connected to your wireless router do you mean physically?

I have a question. I have two computers. Mine is connected through a modem, I have Verison DSL service and the other is my boys computer which is connected with a Netgear WG311v3 Mbps Wireless PC Card. Sometimes the boys computer connects no problem and other times it is horrible and slow. I went into the Netgear Wireless Assistant to look around. But I'm not sure if I change anything in here, if it will help.

Ok....in Settings....Network Name (SSID) is set to ANY (First available Network), under that in the dropdown menu there is Netgear and laur-wireless. Network Type is set at Access Point (infrastructure)....only other option is computer to computer (Ad Hoc), and if I click Computer to Computer I have to initaite Ad Hoc, whatever that entails.

Under the Networks tab: Network Name...Netgear has 100% signal, mode is access point. Laur-wireless has 17% signal, mode is access point also.

The other 2 tabs are statistics and about. Don't really give anything there to change.

These computers are in adjacent rooms, not far apart at all. How can I get the boys computer up to speed? Also, both are brand new computers with 512 mb ram in each.

Will you let me know your thoughts on this??

Hello , i just bought a new pc and when i installed windows vista on it and tried connecting to the internet it was very very slow i tried installing firefox and it's still slow i tried updating my network card using several new and old drivers and it's still slow ! i did almost everything that i found and it's still very very slow download speed is 1 - 2 KB/ps so i thought the internet was slow but when i tried the other pc's they were really fast and the download speed was the average 200-250 KB/ps i thought that the problem was from my os so i uninstalled vista and installed windows 7 build 7100 and i still suffer from the same problem i hope that i find my soloution here.

My computer starts to the desktop and then just sits on it. The little red x in the bottom tray shows I am not connecting to the internet. It takes several minutes for tye x to leave and connect. Once I do all is fine. one tech said to replace the yellow cable-- that didn't help. The server said all is ok on their testing and it may be weather related- the weather is fine. I have vista home edition and internet explorer 9 but i don't think that is the problem. I have a dell 531 desktop. Does anyone have any ideas whyI have to wait so long for connection. My modem lights are all on when this happens.
Any ideas to speed up the internet connection which used to be pretty fast. Does a new hard drive effect this that a tech installed ? I have ATT black modem 7550

firstly sorry if i have posted this in the wrong place.
about a month ago i changed my isp from wanadoo/orange to talktalk. after the switch i noticed my connection was slow and i was unable to access some sites, they just wouldn't load. after much help from talktalk they said the problem was with my pc and suggested i try a laptop to confirm this. they were correct and suggested a virus scan. i have done a througher scan using avast and deleted anything it found but it is still the same. i have tried a system restore, but no change. i was going to re-install my os as i thought this would solve my problem, but having read on here about how to do it, the sticky seems to lead me to believe i am better off trying to solve the problem.

many thanks in advance. gary

Hello to all, I need some help. My ISP (Cox cable) discontinued using DOCSIS 1.0 modems so I had to replace my Toshiba PCX2000 modem and bought a Toshiba PCX2600 DOCSIS 2.0.
My computer is a P4 - 3.8 GHZ, 2 GB Ram, Win XP Pro, Atheros L1 Gigabit 10/100/1000Base-T controller on motherboard. Cable modem connected to computer with no router, my contracted speed with my ISP is 10 MBps.
The problem is that when I connected the new modem my download speed is limited to only 0.14 MBps download and 0.14 MBps upload.
I contacted my ISP and they said all was fine on their side, they even sent out a tech to my home to check the signal and all was fine, the tech told me I had a defective modem so I took it back and got a replacement (Same model), hooked it up and the exact same thing happened 0.14 Mbps up and download, after 2 new modems I know that problem is not the modem it has to be something within windows or hardware on my pc.
This is now driving me nuts being at dialup speed.
Any ideas on what the problem could be?

Hello, i'll be grateful if you could help us with a problem that we are having with our laptops at home. Let me to explain you, my wife have his own laptop at home, as I have mine laptop too, both of the computers share a wi-fi internet conection. I'm not sure of what's going on but the internet conection it's extremely slowly, sometimes when we reboot our laptops there is no internet conection. According to our ISP there's no problem with the internet conection, they said it could be something with the laptops.

Now, It's true that the two laptops are more slowly, specially my wife's laptop, it takes too long for any processes, I always take a look to the running processes and it seems like there are too much process always but I'm not sure of what is good and whats isn't.

I decided to attach The HiJack log from my wife's laptop, maybe with this you could help us to figure out what's going on.

Thanks for your time!

Hi. How are you? I am coming here because I'm going to attempt one more time. And then I'm going to call it a lost cause.I have aDell Latitude computer running windows 7. I have Google Chrome as my default browser. It is the easiest to get around in for me, and has tools for all of these popups that are in exitance. I have a question that I doubt has any real good answers, or any answer that is going to help, but I will go ahead and waiste these next few minutes just to see what happens. I LOVE YouTube. But YouTube I think is at the end of its time with me. I now have moved to a place that has a slightly slower speed and It is using Windstream. I now have PROFOUND problems browsing youtube because it is PROFOUNDLY SLOW.
 
REALLL slow. I have a question. Does anybody know of something in existance that would make it faster? I've checked my computer for bugs. NONE to be found. Cleaned it up. I've got ReadyBoost Activated, and I'm using chrome. Any suggestions or tools that would allow me to browse Youtube, and do all of the functions/features involved in YouTube like the PlayList Abilities such as AutoPlay and Auto-Repeat? ANYTHING? Oh, I Defragmented it too. And deleted other programs that I wanted to delete. Still profoundly slow. Internet Explorer isn't happening. BAAAAAD IDEA. Tried it. We're talking about Taking the definition of Profoundly slow to new and dangerous levels. Thank you very much. Sorry for waisting your time, and God Bless.

I have had vista on my computer for about 4 months, and my internet connection has worked fine with it. But on Tuesday night started to get really slow response from my adsl connection. I unplugged everything, and reconnected, still the same, ran anti-virus and spyware programs, still the same. My speed is worse than dial-up. downloads are taking forever. I have 1500/256 plan. downloads are around 3 -6 kb per sec. It doesn't matter what page I am on. Rang ISP provider and they tried to tell me that it was the phone line. Checked everything myself, everything is fine. Wanted to charge me $105 just for coming out, so I said that I would work it out for myself. I also have XP installed on my computer as well, so I switched between Vista and XP, and on XP my internet is working fine, getting the speeds that I should. So the problem has to lie with Vista. But I'm not sure why it has worked fine for 4 months and now it doesn't. Hope someone out there can shed some light on this for me.

Hey Guys,

I don't know what to make of this because I scan my computer with Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware (both downloaded from download.com) every day and the only way to speed up is to revert to an earlier point with the recovery tool from HP. I'm also getting a very quick connection just after I've rebooted my laptop. Things take very long to load as well. The thing that gets me though is that it's not everything on the computer that acts this slow it's anything internet related like firefox and downloading that's extremely slow. Everything else is still running very well and quick. If you've got any tips please let me know.

Answer:[SOLVED] Very slow internet connection with Windows 7

Hello,

It sounds like you have some things running on startup that don't need to be. When you have it running slowly, use this utility and run tasks #5, 6 and 9: http://cid-120d9bfa03f629fd.spaces.l...29FD!184.entry

Also, if you don't mind, download and run AutoRuns from here: http://live.sysinternals.com/autoruns.exe

Once it loads completely, click File>Save... and save it to the Support folder that the utility above makes on the Desktop, then zip it all up and attach it to your next post.

I live in Barcelona, my provider is Telefonica. I have a D-Link router that works perfectly. I use it for both my desktop and my laptop internet connections. My laptops connection works fine.

Yesterday my desktop worked fine. I had no problem with my connection. However today, for no reason at all, my connection sucks. I am connected but when I launch my browser the browser will start and the page will JUST NOT LOAD, it just stays blank and then the page loads partially and then gets stuck again. I am checking my LAN connection and I can see that I am receiving and sending packets, but in spurts. It seems that my connection is not flowing. It sends and receives packets sporadically and then seems to stop. Meanwhile while this is happening with my desktop, my laptop (that is using the same router) works fine. connections fast.
It just slow or non existent with my desktop. I can't even run applications like FullTilt poker or Pokerstars.
Yesterday my computer was fine and today not. I have not downloaded any software or done anything differently.

Please help, any advice will be appreciated. Thanks

I live in a converted garage at the end of a garden which has a wired connection to the router in the main house. The connection speed is spotty and fluctuates between downloading at around 100-200kBs and having a ping of around 30 in online games (rare) or download rates measure in bytes (normal). Google takes about 10 seconds to load and I can't access steam. I was wondering if this was due to the length of the cable running the length of the garden (about 20m) or some other issue - it is not the computer as I get the same result with my laptop and my desktop, both of which have no trouble when connecting in the main house.

Thanks!

I have two WinXP32 machines on a wired network to a Liinksys router which is connected to a DSL modem. I have the network connection on both PCs setup to put the icon in the tray. Before the last few weeks, the network connection icon would pop up within 30 seconds after reaching the desktop and work fine. Now it is taking 5 - 20 minutes for the network to show up, and for the browser and email to work, Once it is working, speed is no issue. If you try to start Control Panel, then Network Connections, it just hangs until it decides to run (once again 5 - 20 minutes). Rebooting the modem and router have no effect.

One other item of interest: this PC is a dual boot WinXP 32 and x64. Booting up in x64 has no issues in quickly connecting and working right.

Virus? Malare? Have run Kaspersky for over two years, along with Windows Defender. Running them from the x64 partiion to check the XP32 partition reports no virus or malware.

Any suggestions on other things to check?

Answer:Solved: internet connection very slow on laptop, but not on pc

Relevance 77.9%

Two day ago, my internet speed dropped to a crawl. I have done everything I can think of. I called my ISP provider (DSL), no problems. I ran spyware and anti-virus programs. I did a Disk Cleanup and Disk Defrag.

I tried to download some programs to help with this but either something is wrong with the downloading or it takes so long to download that the file is corrupted. After I download a file such as PC Pitstop (I have tried several) then when I try to execute the file I get the message that the "Publisher Could Not be Verified" so I go ahead and check to run anyway then I get a message that the "filename.exe is not a valid Win32 application" or I do not get a message at all - nothing happens.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
 

Answer:Slow Connection And Downloading

You need to be a little more detailed. How much memory do you have all together and how much have you used?. what is the total capacity of your hard drive and how much have you used? Have you cleared all the cache? at this point it could be hardware or software. I had incident where i had to many anti spyware programs (7 to be exact) and it was slowing my computer. Once i removed some of them, it was working properly.

I'm getin a 20mb optic cable Internet connection from virgin which userly runs about 15mb on a speed test with no other internet using software or devices in the house.
Today (9pm uk) I've been downloading a torrent which is on 20-90kb/s which is a little odd as some torrents can be as high as 1mb although i understand it depends a lot on the torrent itself.
The problem is while I'm downloading this torrent I'm unable to do the simplest of tasks and even getting on this website has been a hassle and it's imposable to even connect to spotify, let alone stream from it.
Is this normal for a 20mb connection? Is there somthing wrong with it or am i just expecting too much of my connection?

Btw i'm not very good with internet things so if you can advice some sort of solution don't be afraid to dumb it down

Thanks for listening to my troubles and hope to hear from anyone willing to help.

Hello guys,

I posted this under the software thread as well, but maybe this is a more appropriate place . . .

This is the deal. I got on here a while back because my parents suffered a lightening strike which rendered their computer worthless.

After the great input on here, I replaced the PSU and the motherboard and blam, $140.00 later the computer started.

However the internet connection (cable broad band) was so incredibly slow it would not open any web pages other than something simple like: Google.com or yahoo.com, etc. Click on a story or the weather and nothing.

So I contact the internet provider (Insight Cable) and talk with their tech support that ran multiple tests. They seemed to think that there was a virus problem.

I ran the parents ZONE ALARM and it found 85 virus and 19 spy ware programs. It could not treat or fix the viruses.

My parents are elderly and only use the computer to check email and cruise the net. They are completely computer illiterate. They may have inadvertently been cruising the net with Zone Alarm turned off . . .

Regardless, the computer is:

Dell 4600, windows XP home
2.8 Pentium
1 gig ram

Today I loaded the Dell XP, OS, disk. I did not repair; I formatted the hard drive and loaded everything back onto the computer, i.e., drivers for video, sound, Ethernet, etc.

I loaded the cable modem drivers and established a connection.

However, the internet connection is still stupidly slow. I can't connect to say a "complicated&qu... Read more

Yesterday, I downloaded a chinese media player, so I can play those chinese movies on a website. But I didn't like it, so I uninstalled it. But after I uninstalled it, I found that my internet connection was going slower than before I installed the program. I could only access some websites, like Google, but it's extremely slow. It used to take only half a second to load Google, but now it takes up to a minute just to load Google! I tried going to other sites, and I can only access some, but it takes forever to load them. 95% of the sites just display the "Page cannot be displayed" message. I thought it was spyware, so I did a scan with Spybot, but nothing was found. Nothing else is wrong in my computer except for the internet. I scanned many times, but nothing was found. Anyone have any idea what I could do?

By the way, only web pages won't work (tried accessing web pages in both IE and Firefox, but no luck). Programs requiring access to the web, like Windows Live Messenger works without problem. Hope this helps.

Thanks everyone!

Does having too many things plugged into the router slow internet down? For example: I have my wireless adapter for my xbox upstairs plugged into the router downstairs and then I have the computer plugged into that and the xbox downstairs also plugged into it (all one router). I don't know why, but the computer upstairs is much faster than the one downstairs, which is connected in the router in which many things are connected in. There is a wireless router on the one upstairs. Also, (if you can answer this), what you do on the computer, could it also affect the connection on xbox live? I don't know what category this goes in, but I'll just ask here, if you'd be so kind to help.
 

Answer:Solved: 2 many things in router slow internet connection??

The only way the devices would slow down each other's connection down would be if you were using them all at the same time accessing the internet. If you were downloading every image on Wikipedia and playing Xbox Live, it would be slow. If the devices are just on (idling) , though, it shouldn't affect it.

Hello,

I am having issues with my internet. It is very frustrating because I occasionally appear to solve the problem and the internet becomes very slow and loses connection temporarily. Sometimes a couple times a day this occurs where the internet gets really slow and some pages load halfway and occasionally the internet just goes out all together. This issue is particularly odd because it appears that my laptop is the only one that gets this issue. There are two other laptops that do not appear to have this issue using the same connection. I have previously tried updating my drivers and other windows updates. I have also reset my router settings, moved my laptop to a different locations, changed channels on my router, and none have worked as of yet.

Any ideas to solutions for this issue would be largely appreciated.

Thank you.

I just bought a new Dell Inspiron 530 desktop with Vista Home Premium pre-installed. Everything works fine except my internet, its slow, and I mean really slow. I checked all the connections and everything is connected properly (is not using wireless), checked with my service provider, made sure everything was up to date, uninstalled Mcafee and disabled firewalls, switched browsers, rebooted modem and checked for driver errors (updated drivers).

I have also checked the internet speed using a different computer from my home using the same modem, its 3 times as fast, and this is using a seven year old SUNIX, which has Windows 2000 as an OS, my vista should be heaps faster.

Thus leading me to the conclusion that the problems lies eaither with Vista or my computers Hardware.

I have tried everything I know and it still wont work and I swear to god I am going to start pulling hair out soon. So if anyone could shed some light on this dilema it would be great!

((If you need any info on my computer just ask and I'll happily post))

Hi,

Windows XP Home
Dell DIM4400
Windows XP Home SP2
Verizon DSL
Firefox 1.5.0.12
IE6 (uninstalled IE7 last year)

Spybot....NO problems found (all Green)
Ad-Aware....found one MRU...deleted it.
AVG AV Scan....NO virus infection found.

I noticed last evening while cruising around the net that pages were loading slower than normal (up until then have had NO problem with my DSL).
This morning there was a point where I could NOT make an internet connection at all.

I called Verizon a couple of times and at one point was told I might need a new NIC card (although the "more knowledgeable" tech I just spoke with said my NIC card is ok and she thinks something else (Software?) might be the cause.)

I shut the computer down and this afternoon started it up again and had a connection but, a very slow connection.
Normally my Verizon DSL gives me around 1650Kb/s Download and 550Kb/s Upload.
At last check I'm getting less than half those speeds.

It's been a LONG time since I've had someone check my HJT...
could you see if there's anything in there that could be causing a problem while I continue with other Troubleshooting?

Thank you

In Australia, I use Bigpond (Telstra) and the standard cable connection is now almost as slow as dialup!

Rumours abound that Telstra is deliberately slowing the speed to sell more ADSL2 and Cable2 to customers. Knowing them, it doesn't surprise me in the slightest!

Anyhow, after browsing all the forums, I stumbled across a suggestion to download and run an application called TCP-Optimizer.

http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php

Oh well, might as well give it a go............

Unbelievable, with two clicks of the menu buttons, I now have an internet connection that literally flies.

In laymans terms, click on a new website and it is displayed in about one - two seconds!!!

I still sit here thinking this can't last but so far after 24 hours it continues it's magic!

Another PC on this network also benefitted and is lightning fast!

Just recently started to notice the speed of my connection has greatly slowed down! I am on a desktop PC that is using a linksys wireless USB adapter to connect to my router. I looked at the speed and it was like 18mbps when it used to be like 54mbps. Now my laptop on the other hand if i have it right where i have the same desktop pc connects to the router and receives a speed of 54mbps. Whats going on here? why did my desktop pc suddenly get slower? Its prolly just a coincidence but right after I installed frostwire it seemed like thats when it got slower. (no frostwire isnt running and thats not why it seems like my connection is slower). But there isnt really a way that an application could cause my actual connection speed to slow down is there? The only thing that i can think of is that my linksys wireless usb adapter is going bad or something? does anyone have any ideas, or suggestions on what is going on here??

Hi every one,

I'm using windows Vista and all the windows products that use a internet connection suddenly went very slow. Viewing a webpage with internet explorer on a fast connection takes up to 10 secondes, but the same page with Firefox (no-cache) loads in one or two seconds.

I've got the same problem with Windows Mail, Live Messenger, ect. All the non-windows products like gmail notifier and Winamp are fast as usual.

So now and then i'm also getting an error that "Rasman" doesn't work correct and that it's being stopped.

I'm using good anti-virus software and use my pc only for browsing "normal" website's (no warez and stuff) and reading my e-mail. Also I haven't installed any program or update.

To fix the problem I've tried the following things:

1 - Installer services pack 1. Didn't make any difference.
2 - Try to turn back to a windows backup point. Wasn't possible anymore due the services pack install.
3 - Kickt RASMAN out of the registry
(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\PPP\EAP\25 and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\PPP\EAP\26)
But this also didn't make any difference so i've placed the subkeys back.

Does anyone have any idea what I could try next?

Chears,
Dirk

Ok I hope somebody here will be able to help.

The majority of the time I have ok speeds. My router configuration page says around 3MB, download speed via speedtest.net is around 2.5MB on average.

When I try to download something from utorrent or download/update an MMO application the speed drops. The torrent or MMO will show speeds of maybe 20kb/s and upon running speedtest it will reflect the same. Even after closing utorrent or the MMO application the speed will still be slow.

After doing cmd ipconfig /release and /renew my speed will speed back up and speedtest will reflect this. Just to slow down again if I attempt to download again.

I use IE8 and Firefox 3.6.15
Tried windows firewall and AVG firewall.

My service provider is Sky BB unlimited.
3.2 i5 CPU 6GB Ram, Win 7 64 Bit, built-in Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.

I don't believe it is the hardware causing the problem.

If anybody has any suggestion it will be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Slow internet when downloading

Relevance 73.8%

Greetings.

I would like to download the latest version of Windows 10 and keep it in my pen drive. The normal way to do that is download it using Media Creation Tool and download the iso. But the problem here is my internet connection, which is damn too slow. It takes about 40 hours to download the whole 3-4 GB file. I have to use my internet for other purposes, hence cannot dedicate my entire bandwidth for 40 continuous hours to Windows 10.

I've been through the download process before, I wanted an iso of the anniversary update. I did download about two-third, and boom, power-cut. That's another problem in the place where I live. We have power outages. Randomly. It started downloading again from the start. So it took about 6 days to download. And I could not use my PC's net for anything else. I could but it was terribly annoying. I also play few online games. That was completely impossible in that week.

Now the question: is there any way to (reliably) pause or limit the download rate? Or any priority system so as to give my browser or steam higher priority than Media Creation Tool. I'm okay with keeping my pc on for more amount of time.

Answer:Help regarding downloading Windows 10 on a slow internet.

Hello

If there is a PC repair shop near your home , they should have high speed internet and be glad to download it for you while you wait. Bring proper media to save it and pay them for the time, which should be very little $$.
good luck!

After upgrading to Windows 8, im facing a very slow download speed. My router and the NIC is working fine because on the same PC I also have Linux. In Linux, everything works fine.
When checking through the task manager, it shows that the system use the full bandwidth 1Mbps even without a download. The process menu doesn't show whats taking much bandwidth. The bitdefender's firewall also shows network activity.
Is there any hidden apps downloading? How to fix this?

Answer:Windows 8 Hidden Downloading? Slow Internet?

Just take a look at the metro page and all those live tiles which are turned on by default.

If you want to decrease the network activity just turn all the live tiles off.

Yet everything works fine on my P3 450MHz, similar ethernet connection but with Windows XP Home. These 2 computers are independent - not networked.

Answer:Problems with slow Internet browsing & downloading

Newuser768, I'm no expert in this area but I have read somewhere that the built-in XP Firewall is defaulted 'ON' in the Pro version where as it is 'OFF' in the Home version. If you are using your own Firewall then make sure the XP firewall is disabled.Just a thought.

Hi there! The other night I downloaded about a gig and a half of music from Limewire. The next morning I noticed that my computers internet is running very slow. It takes FOREVER to load a page and I eventually get a error message like this one:


Server Not Found:

Firefox can't find the server at www.techsupportforum.com.

* Check the address for typing errors such as
ww.example.com instead of
www.example.com

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.



I thought it might have been my free Advast Virus protection, so I deleted it after running a full virus scan and got nothing in return.

I have a Windows XP

Downloaded off of Limewire with Peer Guardian Lite running.

I am so frustrated! Help me! :)

Oh f i downloaded something and i thought it was dodgy, i think main problem is that it had a compatibility issue. as soon as i run it it conflicted with another program and i uninstalled it straight away, but it said it didn't install correctly so i reinstalled it correctly and uninstalled it with windows recommendations. it was completely removed from my system but now internet explorer is downloading pages REALLY SLOWLY!!! My comp was so fast and downloaded internet pages in nano seconds, now its taking 20 seconds to fullly load my homepage. I now its something to do with downloading images etc. to web pages etc. because i opened about 20 homepages and they all loaded at about the same time so it's obviously not that my system is going slow or can't handle it. I hope the answer is not to revert to before i installed the program because if u will see my previous post my back ups have been failing so i don't have a back up, the only option is to roll back to about 1month ago and lose all my settings and i think that will mess with my comp and force me to doa full system restore so i hope y'all got a solution, thanks

Hi,

I have down loaded some Free Photoshop PSD files from the Internet for my work in the past 7 days. Since November 4th, 5th, 2012 my laptop started to be very slow. I don't know if this is the issue with the downloaded files. I always do a virus check immediately after every download. I am using Microsoft security essentials for virus check.

After I reboot the laptop, it gets faster for some time. Again later it gets slow. It takes 5 minutes to delete a 400 kb file from recycle bin. It takes 3 minutes to open a windows folder and 5 -6 minutes to open IE. If I reboot again then things get faster again. This continues.

I have attached the logs to this message as requested in the First Steps.

I do not have a Windows 7 CD/DVD because I bought a laptop with pre installed version of Windows 7 home from Sony. (OEM).

I always keep my Windows Updated with Windows and Security updates from Microsoft website.

Some kind of trojan invaded my computer I believe. I ran Symantec and it deleted a bunch of entries but the auto-protect kept popping up to block something labeled Downloader and file "kernel32.exe" I was eventually able to delete it in safe mode after turning off the system restore. But then the auto-protect kept blocking Adware.Webbuying with file name qmlqrib.dll (both of these were in system32 folder according to the log), but there was no file by that name anywhere. I ran Ad-Aware which removed two entries with a level 10 threat assessment named BookedSpace and Win32.TrojanClicker, however the Adware.Webbuying continued to be blocked by Symantec. I then ran Spybot which found and deleted numerous entries and I no longer get auto-protect for Adware.Webbuying. However, I continue to get pop-ups, internet is slower, computer is slower, and it seems to prevent downloads after a certain point in time (haven't made it past 20% of a file from various different sites ranging from 4-20 MB). Who knows what else it is doing; hopefully not downloading my personal data. Please lend me a hand if you can. Thanks. I have included my HijackThis log:

Hello, I am using a Thomson ST516 v6 DSL Modem, through which I have connected a Tenda W311R+ Wireless Router. There's two laptops, one running Windows 7 Sp1, the other running Windows Xp Sp3, and an Android based phone using this connection. I should mention that the problematic laptop had Windows 7 before switching to Xp and ran without any issues. This issue seems to have started for about a week or so.
My ISP is Romtelecom, I'm using the Eset Nod32 v3.0 Antivirus.

Windows 7 Home PremiumHP PavilionSo my tech vocab isn't all that great, but I'll try to be clear. I have had 2 desktops. I used the first just fine for quite a while, but switched to the second one because it had better specs. On that computer, it was also working fine for quite a while, but one day everything got slowed down drastically. Web pages would still load, but take a while. If I downloaded anything, it would always stop at a random percentage (13% done, or even say 0 out of 0 bytes forever) but never finish. If I tried to download any program, it just wouldn't download/install; the progress bar, like when downloading, goes to a certain percent and then stops forever. I gave up and tried the quickNuke option using Dan's Nuke and Boot. The new windows was the same as the old one, slow internet, incomplete downloads, uninstallable programs.Because of this problem I switched back to my first desktop, the HP Pavilion. It worked fine! But today the same problem has occurred, however now I can actually install stuff. I got Malwarebytes and HitmanPro to do a scan; my computer was heavily infected, even though I monitor and clean up constantly. I have installed all the safe-keeping programs, but again, the problem persists. The only reason I can think of this happening is maybe because I installed League of Legends the night before, because everything is mostly Adware or PUPs. After googling I assumed worse case scenario that I had a rootkit; I thought Da... Read more

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

I've been on a DSL connection for some time now (almost a year), but around a few days ago, my connection speed for browsing the internet became extremely slow, staying around 500 bytes - 2Kbps. It would also take web pages a few refreshes to load completely. I use Opera as my main browser, but IE and Firefox are just as slow. However, my online games and bittorrent client are as fast as before... (This is Winodws XP SP2)

When I download a file on any internet browser, the file would download @ around 1kbps for a few seconds before the transfer rate goes to 0kbps, but there arent any error messages.

The other computers connected to the router don't seem to have anything wrong and their speed is the same as before.

These are the programs I installed around the time my internet slowed down:

.net framework 1.1 -which is now uninstalled
Norton Internet Security 2005 (w/ antivirus) - also now uninstalled

I have not touched any of my internet settings before this started happening

I have scanned my computer w/ Norton antivirus, AVG and various spyware cleaners all with the latest definitions and found nothing...

WTF is wrong with my connection??? Its PPPoe (at least that's what it says when it connects to the internet)

I can still play online games and use my bittorrent client without a hitch (same ping & dl/ul rates as before).
 

Answer:My Internet browsing/downloading is extremely slow, yet online games are normal (DSL)

I have also tried disabling my firewalls nd have tried the Winsockxpfix and the TCP/IP reset thing

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

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

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

I'm having problems regarding my wireless internet. First off, we've got two computers, one upstairs which uses a regular modem, and this one downstairs which gets its internet connection through a router upstairs.

Now, from my computer upstairs, the internet works flawlessly throughout of the day. This downstairs computer, its internet connection is...to put it mildly, crap, depending on the time of day. Speed always seems to go real slow at around the same time each day, around 2pm, around 4pm and again around 7pm. It seems to get back on track around 9-10pm, which is right now.

The funny thing is that it says connection is 'excellent' or 'very good'. Here's an example. It's the same scenario whether internet connection is actually very very slow or at normal speed.

I have no idea why, and I'd be really grateful if anyone can help me out. Tips or remedies on what I can do, because it's very frustrating!

Thank you.

Router: Edimax BR-604 WG

I don't get what's wrong with this computer. Almost everyday it acts slow, it takes about 2 minutes to login to a page. Some days it will act fast and other days it won't and it's annoying,especially when I have to use the internet to research! It's even acting worse than a 56k modem. I've done a spyware check with spyweeper and it finds adware sometimes and I delete them, but it doesn't seem to have an affect on the speed. Does anyone have a clue what the problem might be and how to fix it. Also I have a very old cable modem, I've had it since 2002 I believe. It's a Surfboard SB4100 Cable Modem.

hey,

Today i have a new problem with my adsl. The wireless was working at full 'advertised' speed last night, then today i noticed the wireless connection symbol in the task bar had changed from 54mbs to only 2 mbs, and a speedtest showed that it was a tenth of the speed it used to be.

Because i just installed my modem yesterday, i thought maybe this was just the isp limiting my connection until i register the modem or something. However, when i connect an ethernet cable between the modem and my computer, the connection works at full advertised speed. Does this rule out the possibility that my isp is limiting my signal, and suggest that the problem is with my wireless settings? Thanks for any help. The modem is a speedtouch 780.

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

Hello.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hi Guys,

Been a while since I have posted, thanks for your help in the past.

I have 5 problems at the moment:

- Computer is slow to startup.

- Windows defender keeps finding the same 2 problems: Adware: Win32/Cpmsky & Browser Modifier: Win32/Fotomoto - says it removes them but they come straight back.

- CA Antivirus has been detecting and removing 44 threats for the last 6 weeks or so.

- When I shut down my computer it invariably downloads and installs updates - I have checked this out and it is always the same update (which is always installed properly).

- Spybot S&D also acting up a bit by not immunizing my computer properly - ie: after clicking on Immunize it tells you how many items that you are not protected from, ie: 198, after updating I am still only protected against 74670 whilst the total reads 74861. A discrepancy of 191?

Hello there Bleeper community!

My Problem exists for about 2 month now, that was about the time that my old graphic board break down and i used an old one of a friend of mine. Now i have a new one, but the problem still exists. I should have a 6mbit broadband connection, but by running several speedtests it seems to only run with 0.1 up to 0.5 (on good days only) mbit/s. I allready connected my Provider but they said i should be able to use the full broadband. Afterwards i tried to find out if my system is infected.

I am using Mozilla Firefox as a browser (always up to date), my usuall Antivirus program is the free version of Avira Antivir (also always up to date, but browser security is not working) and my firewall is Zonealarm by Checkpoints Software (also i try to keep it updated). I started searching for my Problem and found that Spyware Terminator is supposed to be a good Antimal/-ad-/-spyware program and downloaded it. It did find several infections and removed them, but still my internet is running very slowly. I also checked my Hardware and cleaned the computer.

Hi, I went on holiday for a few weeks internet fine when I left. For the last four or five days my internet connection has been really slow it takes ages to open a internet page and sometimes times out so have to start again. I am with NTL Broadband who are not great but have had no problems with them before. I went online to there medic box they said I have to contact AVG (I have the free edition) to disable AVG to see if this would be causing the problem I very much doubt it is. Any ideas?

Answer:My internet connection is so slow

Do you have Windows XP Home or Professional and let Automatic Update install new updates recently (after returning from holiday)?

Hi,

I have a dell studio 1557 running windows 7. I live in my own apartment with roommates in college, and i've been having some very bad issues with slow internet or constant down time. Here are some key points:

- I have Charter internet.
- My 2 other roommates have NO ISSUES.
- My laptop works in my family's house. They have Comcast. I went on vacation a week ago and there were no issues on the hotel internet. No issues from the school's internet.
- I have been using my android phone as a tether because the internet is more stable. It's slow, but consistent for the most part. This is extra frustrating because I shouldnt have slow internet. And I sure as hell shouldnt be paying for internet I can't even enjoy.
- Charter has replaced 2 routers. Both are brand new. They are net gear. Charter is clueless to my problem.
- I have reinstalled windows. Dell told me to try safe mode. I noticed NO ISSUES WITH STANDARD BROWSING IN SAFE MODE. This leads me to believe it is a software issue.
- The connection is non-existent when coming out of hibernation or rebooting. In the morning, i have to boot up, make my coffee, and only then will it give me access to the internet. Otherwise, page timeouts. It can take up to 10 minutes for the internet to work.
- Youtube and general multitasking is very bad. Slower connection than ever, page timeouts, and I often need to wait for a video/music to buffer before I begin enjoying it.

I have a computer running ME which was giving problems connecting to the internet, though not email. This pointed to a Winsock problem but I couldn't find the corrupted file responsible so I sidelined that version of Windows and Program Files by renaming their folders and installed ME again, effectively a new installation. However, although I can get a connection to the ISP at 45K very easily I find it a struggle to get a decent connection to the internet, it taking some seven or eight minutes to receive or send 2500 Bytes and then sometimes coming to life but not always. Has anyone any ideas?

Answer:Very slow connection to the internet using ME

try this one it works with 98se and may work with me, though I have'nt tried it with me.reboot with boot disk in a drive, when asked start pc without cd rom.at the a/ prompt type in as followsA/setup /?dont miss the spaceyou will then be given a choice of files to replace, chose ie when done you should be able to replace completely your internet files with original filesyou will of course have to retype your isp ect,this apllies to all windows files as far as I remember

I've been having a very annoying problem with Vista. My internet connection will work fine for a week or so then suddenly slow to a crawl, I mean so slow that even dial up looks fast. When it started in October I came here and found a solution that worked until it started again. I came back and found another solution that worked. This has been ongoing every since and I was wondering if there was something I may have been missing. Here's what I've done so far. All of these worked but the problem always comes back:

Uninstalled Macafee
Changed power saving to high performance
Disabled IP6
Updated all my drivers
Checked my router firmware. It's the most current
Disabled Aero
Started Internet Explorer with no add-ons. It worked better so I reset it to deault settings which worked briefly

I think that's everything. All of these worked and each time the problem came back about a week later.
I've also run a virus scan and I don't appear to have a virus.
I use a Netgear WGR614 v6 router to connect and it's worked since last December and still works fine with all my other wireless devices (Xbox 360, PS3 iPod Touch, DS Lite, PSP, and a laptop running XP).

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
 

Answer:Very slow internet connection

The two things I would want to know when experiencing such a problem, is what is the actual download and upload speeds when tested using an online broadband test when you are experiencing this.

One such as >>

http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

or

http://www.speedtest.net/
AND whether the degraded speed occurs when testing with a connection direct to the modem?

If the speed is bad when testing direct to the modem, you should contact your ISP to see if they are experiencing current difficulties. Bad speed tests in my case are usually temporary and ISP related.

As part of the general test/troubleshooting procedure you should also shutdown and remove all power from both the router if you are using it and the modem, for about 2 minutes. Then reconnect and see if that makes a difference.

You can also "clean boot" the computer one of two ways -- either by selecting Safe Mode with Networking support from your f8 boot menu -- or by following the "clean boot" procedure here >>

Hi,

I have a wireless setup at home (Belkin) which shows signal strength as (36Mps - Low)
It stays at this pretty much all the time but if anything improves not decreases.
However, when surfing the internet the downloads seem to slow down or freeze then suddenly it will seem really fast. It has been erratic like this for a few months really and is intermittant but i am not sure whether its the phoneline outside the house or the wireless signal or the router?

Any idea's?
 

Answer:Slow internet connection on 2Mb????

Can you not connect direct to the router to see the difference, to confirm or eliminate?

But 36 Mb/s is plenty to accommodate a 2 Mbps connection.

Hi,

The thing is my connection is running slow, i know it's not the connection itelf, because i have a router and the other pc works great. But in this one, msn drops every 5 minutes, and IE works slow, it's as if its stops every once in a while completly and then it works again but really slow.

What really concerns me, is that there are moments in wich everything stops, i can't move the mouse, the music stops and everything stads still for a couple seconds.

Before the logs,i read the thread about p2p after doing the logs, if you dont have any serious police against them, i would want to keep them. Even if right now doesn't seem like it, i'm a responsible user, not a very legal one, but responsible. Just music, no exe's or games...
What i'm culprit of doing, is downloading pre craked games from direct links, wich i already stop doing...

I know mi antivirus needs update, but its just a cuple days old and right now i have no way of downloading me update.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me , and i'm very sorry for any mistakes with my english... And for any part in the scan in spanish too.

Hi.
I truly hope someone here can help.

I usually have good broadband connection, but not anymore. Three days ago i downloaded and installed a free trial of Norton 360.

It slowed down everything; computer's performance and internet connection. I have since dumped Norton, which has made my computer's performance a bit faster. but there's no improvement to my internet connection.

My internet service provided has tested my internet speed and found nothing wrong with it, the signal is good, no problem.

I tested my computer for bugs, unwanted programs, but found nothing. I deleted all my cookies, internet browser setting and any else i can think of. I even cleaned up my hard drive and put a whole lot of gig back into the system. But nothing works.

Nothing will improve my internet connection.

What must I do? How can this be solved? I am truly fed up.
I have a vista 32 bit which runs on an acer aspire computer. Up until the Norton installation everything ran FINE.

Can someone help me please?
Much obliged.

Hey there! I've created this thread to find out why my internet is agonizingly slow. I was playing LoL when my ping jumped from 70 to a whopping 1k, and continued to go up and up until it reached 4k. This was a few hours ago and I am still very laggy. There's about a 6 to 8 second delay in my skype calls and it takes a while for any webpages to load. I've tried skyping on my phone and I still have that same horrifying lag. I haven't had such slow internet for years so I was wondering if there is a way to tell what is causing this? I hope I am not being DDOSed and I doubt that I am but would someone please be able to help me?

I'm using windows 7 and my wifi is wireless but it's only a few metres from my computer so I have no idea what's going on. I've talked to a few of my friends who use the same internet company as myself and they said that their internet is fine so is it my router? Also recently my internet has been cutting out every 40 minutes or so and it gets quite annoying (it'll come up with that red cross thing or the yellow star and after a few minutes it will eventually reconnect). I'm absolutely terrible when it comes to anything about computers or technology in general so any help would be wonderful! Please tell me if I am not being specific enough and I will try my best to explain in a way that you can understand, hopefully without sounding like an idiot. Aside from when my internet cuts out, it's saying I h... Read more

Answer:Slow internet connection

try doing a power cycle - see below
As its the same on another device connected to the router - its likely to be the router/modem or line
Ask the ISP to do a line test

------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to power cycle

?power cycle? process to reboot or reset the modem/router

Switch off all the devices modem, router and computers also unplug their power cables.
Wait at least 1 to 5 minutes. We have found in some instances you need to wait at least 15 minutes
Plug the power cords back in, but don?t switch them on.
First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Next switch on the router (if a separate device) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Now turn on your computer, You should now be able to access the Internet.

A few days ago my interent connection became real slow i mean like 5m to load the google.com main page, did virus/malware/spyware check all came back clean, tried sys restore but it didnt work(as usaul) tried updating drivers and all still no go, the odd thing is that i play wow and ffxi which to my surprise runs just fine no lag or anything, what am i missing? ?? i cant think of another thing to do, i havent d/l or installed anything in the last few months so i dont think its a software problem and my other computer that runs on the same router is just fine which tells me its prolly not the router or modem, whatever you guys can think of i would appreciate it ty in adavance!
 

Answer:Slow internet connection

Well, you've eliminated quite a few possibilities:

1. Games don't lag> r/o heat and RAM
2. Other system on same router don't lag so not likely the ISP
3. No new installs- that you know of!
4. Specific to this computer- definite start date, not fixed by system restore.
5. You mention slow to load home page> have you added any processes to the Startup?

Take a look and see what's starting on boot:
Start> Run> type in msconfig> enter> Selective Startup> Startup Menu> UNCHECK everything EXCEPT the AV, third party firewall if you have one and touchpad for laptop if on laptop.
Apply> OK.

Reboot the computer. NOTE: you will get a nag message on first boot after making the changes. Ignore and close after checking 'don't show this message again.' Stay in Selective Startup.

While you're got the Startup menu up, see if there are any processes checked that you don't recognize. If there are, do a Google search to identify.

Let me know.

Hello, I have tried everything that I know how to do to speed up my internet connection through Charter Communications. They have replaced my modem, incoming cable and I have replaced the hard drive.

I have removed old programs, checked for double firewalls, defragged, disk clean up, reset internet options......Can somebody please give me a new suggestion on what might be causing this problem??? I am just about ready to chuck the whole thing. I have deleted Java (completely!), what else can be done?

I'm using Windows XP, have AVG free virus checker and I don't even have Windows word or excel installed yet. WHAT !!!

Answer:Really Slow Internet Connection

I have charter too.

I live in Southern California, Ventura to be exact. Myconnection has been extremely slow past two weeks too, as well as my neighbors. I live in a apt complex and everyone is basically cool with each other so we share some complaints, good times, and so forth.

I asked them about the net services and they all have the same issue too.

I called charter twice. The first time they said there were server outages.. BS!

The second time the internet dept said there were upgrading their systems to make way for the new 16mb internet service.

I called complained as did my neighbors about our service being jacked up for two weeks. we basically demanded that they prorate our accounts for the downtime which they did

as of today, my connection is back to normal. Maybe the have started upgrades in your area.
