Preferred Solution: Slow Laptop..slow starting up and loding internet pages

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 Laptop..slow starting up and loding internet pages

1. Software
a) Clear out all temporary files and folders -- use CCleaner http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download
b) Scan for malware spyware and viruses --Free Anti Spyware :-
Malwarebytes http://www.malwarebytes.org/
Superantispyware http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html
Free Antivirus software
MicroSoft Security Essentials http://www.microsoft.com/security/products/mse.aspx
Avast http://www.avast.com/en-gb/free-antivirus-download
c) Clean the registry -- Use the tool in Crap Cleaner its very safe and also allows you to back up the registry first.
d) Pagefile (Virtual Memory) -- Right click MY Computer - select properties - Advanced tab - Performance -
advanced tab - Virtual memory click change, you can put the page file on a different drive (if you have one), click
custom size and set Initial size to one and a half times the amount of memory you have fitted i.e. 512MB memory
= set to 768MB, set maximum to double your memory amount i.e. 512MB memory = 1024MB click ok.
If your hard drive is full and there is not enough room for the pagefile this can slow down, freeze or even cause the
PC to crash (restart).
e) Cut down on the programs that load at start up -- Start - Run type msconfig - start up tab- untick everything except for firewall, antivirus and antispyware
and the services that run in the background. http://www.blackviper.com/
2. Hardware
a) Hard drives /
i) IDE Channels: (Not required if you have SATA drives)
Check the transfer rate, you need to have the transfer mode set to DMA not PIO.
Right click My Computer - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager - Expand (click the + ) IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers right click Primary Channel - Advanced Settings Tab -
If transfer Mode is PIO then follow the instructions at http://forum.digital-digest.com/showthread.php?t=61905 to change.
ii) Check for errors and defrag your hard drives -- My Computer - select drive - properties - tool tab - Error checking / Defragmentation.
ii) If you are using Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 it's a good idea to convert your system drive to the NTFS file system if you have not already. In addition to providing numerous security and data recovery improvements over FAT32 (the file system of choice for Windows 9x/ME and XP Home) it can also speed up your system slightly.
In fact, the only real reason for sticking with the FAT32 file system for any of your data is if you have more than one operating system on your PC and the other OS's can only see FAT32 partitions (as would be the case with Windows 98, for example, which is incapable of reading NTFS data).
To convert your drives to NTFS:
Right click on 'my computer' and select 'manage'
From the computer management window, expand storage and select 'disk management.'
Using the 'file system' column of the upper pane of this window, you can easily check what file system each of your logical drives is using. Make a note of this information.
Now open a command prompt window by going to 'start\run' and typing 'cmd'
To convert a disk to NTFS, type 'convert (drive letter): /fs:ntfs'
So for example, if you were going to convert your C: drive, you would type 'Convert c: /fs:ntfs' at the prompt.
b) Drivers
Obtain the newest drivers for your hardware
This may seem a bit obvious, but keeping your system's drivers up to date can give both your performance and stability a boost. Video card manufacturers release updates especially often, and these can often give "significant boosts" to gaming performance as video card in question is "optimized."
Don't neglect the other components of your system either. Your motherboard manufacturer may have released newer versions of its Input/output drivers for your board, and sound cards and other peripherals can also benefit from newer software.
c) Memory
Your memory could be failing try memtest
Add more physical memory, this of course means opening the "box" and fitting a memory module, make sure you buy one that is suitable for your PC. Crucial http://www.crucial.com/uk/ will guide you through the process of selecting the correct memory. http://support.gateway.com/s/Manuals/Desktops/8509270.pdf for a guide to fitting memory.

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.

My laptop has recently started acting up when it comes to using the internet. I have tried unplugging the router and clearing cookies. Firefox is loading pages extremely slow and will not load some pages like Facebook at all. Please help me if you can. Thanks!
 

Answer:Laptop internet issues - Firefox running extremely slow and not loading some pages

Re: Laptop internet issues - Firefox running extremely slow and not loading some page

You cleared out just your cookies?
In Firefox press Crtl + Shift + Del you shall them be prompted with the catagories for tempory files to do with FF, clear all the ones you deam you can (maybe not passwords).
Once you have done that lets do a quick little maintenance run on your machine just to make sure they is nothing else bogging down FF.

Click Start then Run (or Windows Key + R) then type Cleanmgr and hit enter. It may take a while to do the first stage where it is organising the files it can deal with especially if you havn't done this for a long time.
Once this is done check all the types of files you wish to clear and click ok to delete those files.

Do you have anything like SmileyCentral or web search bars installed? If so lets type removing/disabling them. Start -> Control Panel -> (Set to classic view) -> Add/Remove Programs. Thumb through the list and remove any of the earlier mentioned types of programs.

Also I suggest you run Spybot search and Destroy and an Anti Viral check on your machine just to be safe.

Please tell me if any of this works or what the situation is like when you have done this and from there we can batt on with some more ideas

Good Luck.

Antony.

hi all,

it's been a long time since I have had to post something about my problems in these forums. Well over a year as I have had my laptop for over a year now. This may seem like a similar thread to most that have been put up recently but I think it is quite different.

Ever since I have upgraded to IE8 I have noticed Vista be very slow. It could be to do with IE8 but I think that the slowness of my machine has been since before then...according to my wife. Has her facebook shennanegans broken the laptop???!

Here is a list of problems I am getting:
Long start up times. They aren't bothering me that much, just seem to be a bit longer than normal.
Very long time from when Vista has loaded and I can actually do somehting (15 minutes just now to access an mp3 on my desktop and it kept skipping for about 5 minutes before it stops skipping and playing the track normally)
Extremely slow at logging onto the internet. I mean that it takes minutes, literally minutes for IE8 to even display the very first internet page. After that it is slow, but not as bad...still frustrating though.
Changing between programs seems to take a few seconds.
Accessing my computer or my documents is like a game of russian roulette, will it let me or won't it.....900 on it won't!!!!
On mp3 tracks, if you go back to a certain point in the track it will take a few seconds to actually complete the task

I have about 26gig free on my hard drive. But about 80 gig is used up for phot... Read more

Answer:Laptop - Vista - Very slow on internet & even media player is slow

hi my first instinct is to get your self an external hdd and transfer your files folders etc to it then visit the folks in security and hijack if nothing else lets rule out any possibity of infection. when you upgraded to ie8 was it still in beta, what av and firewall are you using. have you run your av, can windows update same for windows defender, i know its a lot of questions but the answers could be helpfull

I'm new here, and I sure hope you all can help me out......Over the past couple of weeks, my computer is taken longer and longer to open internet pages. I have also noticed that when I boot up, it takes a lot longer now than it use too. When windows starts up, it stays on the page that says "windows is starting up" about 4-5 min.......It even takes longer for my desktop to show up.......

Now the darn thing takes forever when I click on internet explorer to get to my home page.......Can someone help me fix this problem........I don't know what's going on, and I don't have the time to waste waiting anymore.

Thanks in advance,

going nuts

Answer:IE is slow to get to internet pages

slow boot up times and programs pulling up can be any number of things.

how old is the computer? how much memory (ie RAM) do you have?
To check the RAM you can Right Click on My Computer and select the GENERAL tab. It should tell you in the bottom right the CPU speed (MHz or GHz depending on how old the computer is) and the RAM.

Also, depending on how many applications you have installed, they could be starving your resources. In the bottom right of your Windoes desktop there is the Task Manager. How many little icons do you have? 2-5 or 10? Every little icon is some program that takes up memory from your available RAM.

You can download and install a resource manager like CachemanXP which does a good job at managing your RAM.

You could also have spyware and/or virus' on your computer. Antivirus software is only as good as the definition files that are on your computer. Many people get a year free when they buy a computer but then let the software expire. This does no good b/c new virus' are out every day. Norton's and McAfee are constantly updating their definition files and pushing them to register users.

The same goes for spyware. Spyware can be just as malicious as virus'. I like to use AdAware SE (which is free). It'll scan your hard drive just like antivirus and alert you if you have malicious files.

A couple more things... when was the last time you did a hard drive defragmentation (aka defrag)? The more programs you put on and take off... Read more

So you press the power button and the desktop does not take that long to appear...but you have to wait an age before the Sys Tray gets filled for two innocuous programs. Nothing else is in systray. Have disable most things using msconfig but system is still a slow starter.

System does not have AV or f.wall.

Done a check for spyware - hardly anyting found.

Hi All,

I have a big problem on my pc "Windows XP Home SP2" boots very slow like it would take you 10-15min in windows logo and after you sign in it's also very slow..i then checked my services running and i cannot find any suspecting viruses but by CPU % is going up to 100% and yet Im not doing anything. Here's the long story of what had happened.

When I shudtdown my pc an error message appears "ccApp not responding" and I chose end now to shut down my pc. When I open again my pc it starts up very slow. I then tried to do a system restore and afterwards it errors out as well "system restore incomplete" I used a lot of system restore checkpoints "manual & automatic checkpoints" still ended up incomplete. I then found a thread saying that i should stop the ccApp and that causes the problem. I unchecked it on my msconfig and still it my pc starts very slow and my CPU% is going up even though i didnt open any programs. I then unistalled my NIS 2006 hoping that it will get back to normal and still it hasnt. I then tried doing a restore again then another error occurs "system restore cannot protect your computer". I then restarted my computer and tried accessing system restore, a message appears telling me that my system restore is off, when i turned it on "monitoring" all my restore points are gone

As of this day my computer is still very slow in starting up and cannot use my computer because somethi... Read more

Recently I have been experiencing difficulties loading pages on the internet. This problem occurs on all web-browsers that I had(IE, Firefox, and Google chrome.) It just happen recently for about 3 weeks now, and some days it run normally however on others it's just really slow. I have tried restarting my PC when it was acting slow but that did not solve the problem. This PC has been infected with lots of virus once like Internet Security 2010 but I removed them using MalwareBytes-AntiMalware. However I have seem to lost all my restore points so therefore I do not have a safe restore point I can restore my computer to. I also have a laptop at my house who is sharing the same internet router as my PC but it runs fine so I figured it was my Computer that is the problem not my router. I am using wireless network to connect from my PC to my router. I never have this problems where pages load really slow before so I do not know what do. Please if anyone could help me.

I have 2 computers side by side and they both had Windows Xp. I upgraded one computer to a Windows 7 home premium that I purchased with a new video card. According to a online speed test they both still regester around 6 to 7 Mbps. The windows 7 computer takes 3 times as long to load a page (sometimes even longer) then the Windows XP computer.

In addition my online games now lag more on the windows 7 then the Xp computer.

A temporary fix I found is if I run CMD as administrator and type in
regsvr32 actxprxy.dll it resolves the issue for about 5 to 10 minutes and the internet loading speed is fine. Then it goes back to loading a page like I was on dial up.

Does anybody know of a way to fix this issue

Answer:Slow internet pages with windows 7

First I would ask where the slowdown is happening. It's possible that the OS is not liking you Firewall or anti-virus if you are using anything other then the default. New OS, new compatibilities.

I normally look at the things that do packet filtering when this issue arises in my PC's. Ar both OS's 64bit?

Please Help. On a friends Acer laptop (Win7) Internet Explorer 11 was slow to open pages, slow to even scroll up pages. I've uninstalled many toolbars, extra scanning software (Kaspersky Security Scan, WinZip Malware Protector) and Backup programs(MyPCBackups). Internet Explorer is at least responsive now.

Can someone please check the logs to see if anything else is left behind.

I have done all steps listed in the win7 cleaning procedure. All ran to completion.
The Norton 360 and Norton Online Backup are paid for and for now could stay if not detrimental. The WD Smartware is used to backup to a MyBook.
Don't know if the MyWinLocker is used.

Thanks
 

Answer:Internet Explorer pages slow, Please Help

I highly recommend that you uninstall Mobogenie since it is responsible for much of the garbage you already cleaned and much of what still remains to be cleaned. But if your friend is just going to reinstall it, don't bother, because that will just put back all the junk we are fixing.

Also uninstall McAfee Security Scan Plus to help with performance.

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

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

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

Hi. I'm very new to these boards, but recently I ran into a problem with my Internet Explorer. Although, I usually use FireFox, I would prefer not to have my IE acting up (as this may be an indication of something wrong). I recently (about a month ago) re-installed WinXP Pro SP2 and everything was working fine. About a week ago, I started having trouble starting my IE. Now page loading and downloads are not affected, but when I try to start the browser there is a huge delay (as well as when I try to open a new browser window - like when I'm clicking a link that would open in a new window). Just the browser itself takes a while to open, not the page content.

I'm not sure what other info you would need, but I will be happy to post it up if needed.

Hi. I've been having this problem for about a week and a half now. When I click on the internet explorer icon, the web page opens up but it is just a blank white screen and on the bottom gray bit it will either say connecting to 62.78.9444 (i don't know the exact number) or it will say web page loading or something of that sort and it takes about 10 minutes for it to start up. while it's trying to start up the whole screen is frozen. i've just today bought SpySweeper and did an hour and 15 min scan on my computer which wiped out some malware, but i'm still having this problem! this is very frustrating! And if i am on a page and click a link that has to open up in a different page, it takes 10 mins to open that up too! What is going on?!

Answer:Internet Explorer is Very Slow Starting Up

ok so i have discovered the problem FINALLY but it has created a new problem for me. i found out that the reason IE was taking so long to start up was because of my add-ons. there are wayyy too many add-ons under the manage-add ons box! but i dont know what it what there are a lot of different names of stuff i've never heard of. i don't know what to get rid of?

Hi, I believe this is my first post, so I apologize in advance for my lack in computer knowledge.

So my problem has to do with my start up speed of any programs/new data, such as games, web browser, etc. My computer is the Asus, 8GB RAM, i7-3610QM @ 2.30GHz, Nvidia GeForce GTX 660M (2GB), and 64-bit OS Windows 7. However, when I finish loading such game, the game runs relatively smoothly with minor freezes/gliches.
This problem started near the start of the month and this is the first time ever that I've encountered this problem. I use programs such as TuneUp Utilities (defrag and optimizes PC) and IObit Malware Fighter.

Games such as League of Legends, Skyrim and Left for Dead 2 would take 3-15 minutes to load/restarting (even then brief freezes will occur during game). After a while the slow start ups starts to speed up; then slows back down when turning computer off and on.

Overall, I am just having problems with the very slow start up speed of programs.
Thanks.

PS: before this incident, my laptop could run FarCry 3 and Crysis 3, running relatively smoothly.

Answer:My laptop is very slow when starting any programs.

Did these problems start after using Tuneup Utilities or Iobit Malware Fighter ?

Tune-up programs can damage the registry and while Iobit Malware Fighter claims to be compatible with all AV programs, it seems to have a similar active component of AV programs which could cause a conflict if you have another AV program installed.

Slow start up and shutdowns are usually caused by too many programs in the Startup menu, so run a clean boot to see if this resolves these problems.

Close the auto fixit window and read through the MS article.

Startuplite will list programs it considers unnecessary to be in the Startup menu which you can also try.

I have a laptop from work a HP ProBook 4540s. At work it starts up fine, but at home it takes a quite a few minutes before i get the windows log-in screen and another while before my desktop is ready. AFter that, even starting up IE takes seconds more to load at home then at work.

My ISP had us do an upgrade,since then, I've started to have problems with the speed of my connection or browser whenever I'm on a webpage that has any form of submission system, like an online form or search box. I also get it on this page.

When I'm on any of the above pages, my browser seems to grind to a halt, takes minutes to scroll up and down the page, slow to respond to click on any links and, if I try to type text into any form fields or search boxes, it will be 4-5 seconds after I've started typing before the text starts to appear in the box and then it continues to lag behind during typing.

Ihave a cable connection and a gateway computer. Browsing seems fine on most pages where no forms or anything else exist. I've run a virus check and Spybot, but the problem still exists. I have downloade Hijackthis, and have attached the results.

Would welcome any help at all.

Answer:(Solved) Internet slow on form pages

10 more replies
Relevance 72.16%

I'm working on a friend's PC who told me her PC was slow. Once I got the machine home and fired it up, it became apparent that the PC itself is not slow, but accessing the Internet is.

It may take up to five minutes for any Internet page to be accessed. I installed IE7 and updated the machine to SP2 thinking that may help. It did -- for about 15 minutes. I was able to access any Internet pages without a problem. However, during this time, random Internet pages were opening in new windows approximately once every 30 seconds or so.

Google opened twice that I recall, some about.com pages opened, too, but one that opened that I assume to be an indicator of a problem was www.registrydefender.com. I did not access any of the pages that auto loaded; I simply closed those windows.

The machine is now back to the state where it takes quite a long time for any Internet pages to load. I should mention that the SP2 update download was agonizingly long, and the downloads for gmer and dds took much, much longer than they should have. I am using my Internet connection via her machine for these downloads. My machine connected to this same connection encounters no problems whatsoever, so I know it's not the connection itself.

DDS.txt is below, and ark.txt and attach.txt have been attached to this post in a zip file.

Thank you in advance.

Hello BC,
I have a funny but serious malware problem. When watching Jersey Shore full episodes, usually the ads played in the player- But then on one of the episodes, when the video player went to advertisement, an advertisement "popped up" blackening the whole screen. I thought this was unusual since the ads usually had been playing embedded within the player. I (mistakenly) clicked the "X" to get out of it. Following this, an ad began to play within the player per usual.

After the embedded advertisement began to play, I immediately got malware on my computer. My bottom-left icons began to change, and my antivirus appeared hijacked because a message appearing from avast popped up alerting me that I had been infected with a "worm". I knew immediately that I had been infected with something, and that the message was originating from the 'worm'.

I immediately shut down my computer and restarted in safemode. I attempted to perform an avast virus scan and windows defender scan-nothing. I then restored my computer back to a restore point created a few days prior using the System Restore function. I then started up in safe mode and attempted to Uninstall the Firefox browser from which I had acquired the virus. Firefox would not uninstall itself from Add or Remove Programs so later on I manually deleted (most?) of the firefox files.

Now none of the virus scans performed online or downloaded have detected a thing. Advanced System Car... Read more

Hi,I have virgin cable 2mb. Its worked fine for months, but a few weeks ago, it started to take ages to load internet pages. I performed a speed test. The download rate was very good (2000kbps), though the upload rate was poor (40kbps). However, I performed another few today and the upload rate improved to its normal rate of around 250 kbps. The internet still loads slowly however.The 'pc' light is constantly flashing on the modem. I seem to remember that it should be solid like the 'power' and 'cable' lights- is that right?Does anyone have an idea as to what could be the problem, given that speed tests suggest there is no bandwidth restriction?Ive run several anti- spyware/ virus checks to no avail. done the turn off and on thing... but dont know what else to try....

Answer:Internet pages slow, flashing pc light

oh, another thing- online games dont seem to be affected, at least not to the extent of browsing the internet. Is that wierd?Thanks for any aid, in advance..

My McAfee subscription expired and I have now loaded AVG Anti-Spyware and ZoneAlarm. Since then my PC has been a bit temperamental (sometimes slow to load web pages or not loading them at all). Could you advise if there are any problems. From time to time the PC will crash altogether and I have to switch the power off/on to get it re-started. I have recently de-fragged as well, but no real improvement in performance.
Around the same time I was trying to download IE7 and it kept failing. The Window help suggested de-activating all Firewalls (I also have SpySweeper) but it still did not complete IE7 download. I have not bothered trying anymore but wondered if something hasd got through while I had no Firewall.

I have posted aHiJack This scan in the relevant forum and Old Timer suggested posted the questin with yourselves as he was not able to see anything wrong.

I hope you can help.

Answer:Slow Running/internet Pages Not Loading

Hi there,

I use AVG and Zonealarm too, but don't experience what you are. Having said that that there could be glitched between the two that are preventing you from accessing the web.

In the meantime I would personally get hold of the latest updates for AVG, ZoneAlarm and any other spyware/adaware program, disconnect from the internet (unplug your modem/router) uninstall your current defences (AVG, ZoneAlarm etc), then add your firewall (ZoneAlarm) following the on-screen instructions then add your spyware/adware/anti-virus software and do a full system scan.

Forget about IE7, stick to IE6 (reinstall that too).

Hope that helps

I had a malware trojan blackbird on my computer and have recently removed it. i have cleaned out my internet option, cookies, anything i can. i have SUPERantispyware, avast, and a few other spyware and virus programs i downloaded and have gotten rid of because they found nothing after avast and super... scans. i also have a process viewer to see what program is running. nothing looks out of the ordinary or stands out. Another problem is when I'm viewing a page my computer usage jumps to 100%. i can not view multiple pages like i used to be. i have defraged, removed files i do not need. practically cleaned my system out. I have read to many forums and post and my brain is starting to bug out.

Alright so, I'm new to TSF I've been putting up with this internet issue for a couple months already and it was a real pain registering my account when hotmail takes forever to load. So I'm gettin sick of it and need help. I had alot of viruses at one point but I took care of them by reformatting my pc, however I think they mightve messed up my internet connection because I've never had a problem with it until they arrived. Now all of a sudden the pages are running VERY slowly, sometimes they dont even open up, or some parts of the page arent being displayed, I get the "Page cannot be displayed" ALOT, often need to refresh the page 3+ times for it to fully load, videos I stream online wont run until I've refreshed alot of times. Alot of sites I've completely given up on just because they dont work at my pace, hotmail and myspace are some examples. I have DSL connection

I appreciate any help, thanks!

hello, i would really appreciate it if someone could help me with a problem ive been having recently with my internet as i have been signing up to forums and posting for weeks now but nobody has given me a solution

My hijackthis log, rootlog, and avg scan can be found here: http://www.bullguard.com/forum/10/Im-not-sure-why---HELP-_48005.html

ok well, i must have downloaded something or whatever but a blue screen of death appeared and restarted my computer

Then, after a long while, it will look like this:

As for the head/title thing

if i search for something it first looks like this:

Hi, I'm new to this forum as well and I couldn't read this thread without posting a reply since I have a similar problem.
I have four computers(three of them with XP SP2) and on one of them, a HP laptop with XP Home edition SP2, the browsers suddenly stopped working.
I use IE7 and Firefox and they both behave the same. The browser-window comes up blank and after that nothing happens. It doesn't give me an error, it just keep on trying...
I haven't had any viruses that I'm aware of and I am very careful regarding patches and updates. I thought that this might be a local firewall problem on this computer so I temporarally turned it off but that didn't help.
My outlook mail and other software that connects to the internet works fine.
Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

Thanks!

Hi everyone, I have a Lenovo Yoga 510, bought about a month ago, and it had this problem from the beginning. After the laptop goes into sleep mode, when it wakes up, it connects to  the internet but it does not work; when I go on any browser (tried it`s own internet explorer, chrome, firefox, etc) the pages don`t load up at all, or in a happy scenario just partially. Sometimes even I restart the devices the problem persists. I have tried to change the settings for the power options to not limit the wifi adapter power to save baterry life, and from device manager same settings (don`t turn off wifi). Still nothing worked. If anyone has any tips regarding this it would be very much appreciated. Currently I`m using Windows 10. Many thanks, Cosmin

Hey guys, My computer (vista laptop 32 bit) has been extremely slow lately.

Hi, I am a software programmer (mainly Delphi) and i have now a problem i was not able to solve with my Pc.
I suspect some kind of hacking or some serious software conflict..
I have Win XP hom sp 2. When i connect to the internet the speed is high (i have adsl) and downloads and uploads (via ftp for example) are fast as expected. Outlook is fast too. But when i have to browse web pages IE ( and Opera as well) are slow like the hell. Before loading a web page (of only 40kb) i can wait sometimes even a minute or more. Very rarely, suddenly the speed is good again but most of the times is very low, especially when i need to reach a completely different domain.
First thing i did: i ran the spysweeper trial software that found and deleted many adware and even a couple of trojans.
But the problem with my IE is still there (I even tried opera browser but it doesn't make any difference).
What is the next step to do?
Please advice, cause i am going mad..
Thanx, Francesco

A couple of weeks ago pages started to load very slowly on my desktop when using Firefox. I suspected my Belkin wireless adaptor as my laptop was working fine with Firefox and the same BT home hub,and same security (Comodo Firewall and Avast). Having bought a new wireless adaptor I still have the same problem. The internet connection signal is good and the Avast boot time scan shows clear. I suspect, therefore, this may be a Vista issue. Any ideas/suggestions would be gratefully received.
 

Answer:Internet Connection good but pages slow loading

Disable your Windows firewall if it is enabled and see what that does to your connection speed. Try disabling the Comodo as well.

My internet started to become slow out of no where and I didn't mess with my router/modem or any computer settings so I'm guessing it's a hardware problem. Pages take a while to load, some don't load (Unable to connect to webpage message), or sometimes they won't load completely. I've had this happen 3 times over the past years, even with different routers/modems/ISP's, my internet would be working normally for a few months and then it'd dramatically get slower. I've always thought it was my router causing the problems, potentially screwing up and degrading my modem's performance. It must be that Netgear routers are awful, as that's the only brand of routers I've had over the years.

I'm on my desktop, and have my modem connected to my router. I'm connected to the internet via cable since my desktop doesn't have WiFi.
Got 58mb/s download speed and 12mb/s upload speed on speedtest. Any ideas on how to fix the problem?

Edit: I have the same problem with every browser if you're wondering.
 

Answer:Internet suddenly slow and pages not loading completely

Have you tried having your ISP run a line check.

Purchased a Compaq V6210 with Vista Home Premium. Works great, but decided to get a different notebook and my sister will get this one.

Purchased a Gateway with Vista Home Premium. OK notebook, but 4200 rpm HD was too slow AND it took literally 1-2 minutes to load web pages (via wireless) that the Compaq loads in 2-3 seconds (or less).

Don't know what caused this and didn't care because I was returning it anyway.

Purchased a Toshiba Satellite A135-S4467 (Intel Core Duo T5200, 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM) with Vista Home Premium. Great notebook, but has the same slower than dialup web-surfing characteristics of the Gateway. Don't have a clue what the most likely cause of this is. Can't do a clean re-install because none of the manufacturers include the Vista install disk, just the lame restore CD (except the Gateway, got to hand it to them there, they included a restore disk and a true Vista install disk).

Perhaps there is a simple fix for this? Someone told me to remove Toshiba's Config Free. Tried that and it didn't help. Any ideas?

I have been experiencing strange issues on my laptop this past month. First off, I have to say I once installed a program called SSPro or System Surveillance Pro to see how it worked. I followed instructions on how to remove it, but I am not sure if files still exist that are causing problems. In addition, I ran an Panda Active Scan and had found a file called KillProcwin.A and also followed some other instructions on how to remove that. Anyway, I notice that my computer in general is very slow to start up. Then when I try to do Internet searches or simply click within a web page, it freezes up. I do Ctrl-alt-del when pages are not responding and have to end programs. I also notice that when I shut down my computer I see a message about having to end program hpcmpmgr.exe. I have tried to shut down/restart several times today. The last time I opened Internet Explorer I received a message, "Instruction at 0x7c910193 referenced memory at 0x1440db62. The memory could not be 'written.' Click OK to terminate or CANCEL to debug. This is becoming extremely frustrating so any help on these issues is much appreciated.

Running Windows XP. Internet Explorer 7
Internet Explorer constantly giving not responding message.  Pages are slow to load, some never load.  Constantly getting Not Responding Message and Internet Explorer becomes completely unresponsive.  This problem just seemed to begin several days ago. 
 
Steps that I have taken to help problem: 
 Updated MalwareBytes and ran scan.  I also ran MalwareBytes in Safe Mode.  Scans showed nothing found.
Ran scan on Microsoft Essentials. Scans show nothing.
Made sure all Windows Updates are up to date (I have windows firewall turned on and have automatic updates turned on)
I have run a scandisk/checkdisk.  I believe it said it repaired one bad sector
I also have AFT Cleaner installed, which I run about once a week
I have no other malware or virus protection installed other than MalwareBytes and Microsoft Essentials.
Computer analyzed and said I did not need to defragment
Only using 25-30% if harddrive
Checked with Internet provider.  They said we are having no problems in my location area.
 
The only program I have installed in the last several months is Skype
 
Any suggestions.
 
 

Answer:Internet Explorer Slow, not loading pages, not responding

Hi
 
How other browsers work ?. My personal choice is chrome and it works fine for me.Your IE version is 7 and it is fairly outdated. Latest is IE10 but Microsoft didn't even released IE 9 for XP. Sticking with an outdated browser is a security risk. Also a large number of websites require at least IE 8 or higher. I strongly recommend consider using an alternative browser or at least upgrade the Internet explorer version to 8.

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

Ok I just got my virus/spyware situation resolved earlier today but now my internet connection is really sluggish. I took the recommendations given by greynight in the anti-spyware tutorial and downloaded and installed all the things listed there. However now my interent is hardly running. I'm not sure what to do. I have dsl and my interent is running as though it's on a very bad dial up connection at best. This is just terrible.

I'm not sure where I should be posting this. I chose here because I feel these problems are a result of programs I may have downloaded after coming to this part of the forum.

Please help or direct me to the appropriate area.

Download HiJackThis - this program will help determine if there's any malware on your computer.

1. Double-click on the file you just downloaded.

2. Click on the "Unzip" button to install the newer version.

3. It will by default install to the directory - C:\Program Files\HiJackThis\

4. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose - Do a system scan and save a logfile.

5. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit [Scan] and then click on Save log.

6. Post the HiJackThis.log file

Hi :)

Obviously I have been having some problems.

To start with, when I start up the computer, I get a message which says:

"Windows cannot find file
'C:\Program Files\NOS\bin\getPlus_HelperSVC.exe'"

My computer is running slowly, but this could be due to its age and my impatience.

Also, when I am adding my own CDs to iTunes I cannot access the internet at all, during or after. The same happens with the Sims 2 - after closing the programme I can't use the internet without restarting the computer.

I didn't install the Microsoft Update KB951748 because it interfered with my free Zone Alarm Firewall.

I went through your steps but I couldn't get the Panda ActiveScan to open, even when I searched for the page independently.

Obviously if I have missed anything let me know :)

Thanks in advance

PC responds slowly at times. Mouse movement stutters, or stops completely. Web pages come up slower than they used to and file transfers are slower as well.

Hi Testing12,
Welcome to the BleepingComputer's Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal forum.
My name is Mako and I will be helping you with your computer problems.
Before we begin, please note the following:
Please stay with the topic until I tell you that your system is clean. Missing symptoms does not mean that everything is okay.
The instructions given are for your system only!
Please do not run any tools until requested! The reason for this is so I know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.
If you don't understand something don't hesitate to ask before running the tools.
Now let's get started...
You said you've already ran ESET Online Scanner and MalwareBytes. Can you paste the content of the ESET logfile in your next reply and attach the Malwarebytes logfiles please?
To obtain the logfile from MalwareBytes you can start the program and go to the Logs tab. You may attach the results of both scans.
For the ESET Online scan log: it should be located at the following location, unless you saved it elsewhere: C:\Program Files\ESET\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt
Last but not least, I saw in your log a reference to AdwCleaner. Did you use that as well? If so, please attach its logfile also.

I have an Asus 1000HA netbook with XP, atom processor, and 2GB RAM that is running and starting up very slowly. It also is freezing up frequently. Any audio skips, making dialog sound like the speaker is stuttering. (Video is not even either.) Fortunately, no blue screens have appeared yet. I've run scans for Malwarebytes (found nothing), AVG (found and killed 2 corrupted files), run disk cleanup, and defragmented. I tried a system restore, but it would not complete and an error check would not complete ("Windows is unable to complete the error check"). I've thought about trying a registry cleaner, but I've seen conflicting reports about those.

Any suggestions about what could be wrong and how to fix it? Thank you!

Ok so I am in need of help. My Dell 1.5years old and I use to have Satellite internet and blamed that for slow internet, but now I have Comcast high-speed and still slow internet. Now I think it is my computer.
Each week I run spybot, delete all internet files, and run scan disks to delete temp or unneeded files. I have AVG anti virus and to be honest I hardly do anything other than ebay and surf the net.
I tried Mozilla once but I found it to be nightmare to use. I am totally frustrated.
Aside from my internet being slow on certain webpages (like paypal, ebay, ect), on occasion (maybe once or twice a week) random websites will pretend to load but do not. For example, I am on google.com and I decide to type in www.auctiva.com in the address bar and it looks like it is loading but never ever does - instead I am still at google.com
I also have issues with www.squaretrade.com and UPS.com and only on this computer, my laptop works great no problems.

Anyhow, was told to run Hijack this - I did and well I have no clue what this means. Can someone help? PLEASE - I am begging for help.

Let me know if you need more information. Oh I use AVG, which I just updated and I run daily. Spybot finds random cookies when run weekly (sometimes more often)

So here is my latest report

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

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

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

I share a wireless router with 4 other people. All of a sudden my laptop internet speed took an extreme downturn. And it is only my laptop that has been affected, everyone elses is working at the same speed.
So usually if I ran a speedtest the download speed would sit at around 700kbp/s. Now it's barely at 80kbp/s.
The upload speed is sitting at 749kbp/s so it's pretty normal.
I've restarted my computer with no luck.
I've deleted all my cookies and temporary internet files with no luck.
I ran a virus scan (I use AVG Anti-Virus); it came up with corrupted executable file (Quicktime) so I removed that. This hasn't helped the problem.

I really don't want to have to pay heaps of money for a technician to come to my house and try and fix it. It's weird that it happened all of a sudden but I need to get it fixed.
Any ideas or suggestions? They would be MUCH appreciated as it is a very frustrating problem!
 

Answer:Suddenly EXTREMELY slow internet browsing and loading of web pages

Have you connected with a wired connection to the router to see if this is a wireless issue, or some other problem?

For wireless connection issues, I'd like to see this.

Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework. For machines with no Internet connection, download this NET Framework 3.5 Full Package on another machine and transfer it with removable media to the problem machine.
To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.


With a wired connection, boot in Safe Mode with Networking and run this PingTest and also this SpeedTest and post the link to the results here.

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

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

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

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

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

Hi,

I am using Internet Explorer 7 on a relatively new computer with a 6 Meg broadband connection. I have noticed a couple of things lately.

1. IE says the page is 100% downloaded, but it will then take up to 30-seconds to display.

2. My title bar in IE says "Tech Support Forum - Post New Thread - MicroBorg Internet Explorer"

3. Sometimes the computer just seems to hang. At various times. Shutting down a program. Trying to open another. doimg a "File Save". Random times.

Answer:Internet Explorer Pages slow to load - MicroBorg Title Bar

I've been getting a problem utilizing Firefox and even IE (which I prefer not to use). Basically, pages have been loading pretty slow recently. At first I thought it wasn't that unusual, but when playing games online (WoW specifically), I'm not getting any high ping or latency issues. I also don't get any slow down on downloads, which is puzzling me. I only have problems just going on the internet.

There are also moments when I have to re-enter an internet address multiple times. For example, if I were to enter "gmail.com" on the address bar, it won't load, but still say "Done" at the bottom as if it loaded a web page or something. I'm afraid I might have some keylogger or some malicious content. Should I start changing passwords for e-mail services and anything else that requires a password?

I tried running Ad-aware, Spybot, and Symantec to clear up any issues, but I still have the same problem.

Hello, my name is Kim. I've had to seek help (concerning this same laptop) from your site before and was so happy with it, Im seeking your help once again!  It's concerning this same laptop as before...a Dell Inspiron E1505, with  Windows 7 Ultimate SP1, as the OS. The issue is that it's running VERY slow...it starts up slow and once started, loads pages S L O W!  Very frustrating, because until fairly recently, it seemed to be just fine. I have AVG 2015 free edition, as the anti-virus and have run a full scan on it, with zero negative threats to post.  I also downloaded Spybot - Search & Destroy and have also run a full scan and turned up 77 (I think) threats, which were 'fixed' & quarantined. It still seems to be very slow. However I did just check to see how much disk space is free, and was surprised to find that only 2.87 GB free, of 111 GB. Would that be the reason why it's so slow? Any help you can offer, would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks in advance!

Hello,

My name is Aman and I'm trying to fix my parents CPU. They have a tendency to download a lot of crap without first checking that the source is legit.

The CPU runs Windows 7 64 bit.

The specific issues are when Chrome or IE are being used. The browsers are always redirected to searchnu/406. I have changed the start page back to google and that works at startup, but when a new window is opened it goes back to ask.com. I have also noticed that pages are regularly not loading fully and it takes 3-4 times hitting the reload button to finally load, sometimes they don't load at all. I am also noticing that the internet connection seems slower than before (they have ATT DSL) and the cpu in general is running a bit slow.

Any help would be great.

Thanks,
Aman

Answer:Slow Loading Internet Pages - Whirling Hard Drive Noise

You can test the HDD using the drive manufacturers disk tools (available from the drive manufacturers website). Run the short and long test. That will verify the drive is good (or bad). Any errors on either test and the drive is likely faulty.

With that said, drive usage/access in and or itself does not indicate a problem.

step4:On the right box,right click and choose new ,then continue choose DWORD Value
step5:type into the box : MaxConnectionsPerServer
step6:Just right click on that key and choose modify,and then type the value that you want into the value box(when you type the large number then your browser faster)
step7:create another key such as MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server (do the same the above steps)

These are my laptop specs:

AMD Ahtlon 64 x2 Dual-Core Processor TK-55 1.80 Ghz
Ram: 1GB
32-bit

When I boot up from the shutdown position it takes 1minute and change to boot up to desk top fully. Once its done, it takes Internet explorer to open to home page approx 45 seconds. I think this way to slow for what the specs are.

Can anyone help me make this boot faster or operate faster, seems to really slow IMO

Thanks

Answer:Slow boot up and slow opening pages....

It isn't ever going to be lightning speed until you upgrade your RAM to 2 GIG. But, if you want to get the performance back to where it was when you first got the computer follow these steps.

1)Run Anti Virus scan (as thorough as you can make it)
2)Run Spyware removal (like Spybot S&D)
3)Run disk cleanup
4)Run disk defrag
5)Run disk check (click both boxes then you will have to reboot for it to start)

See if that helps...

Hi there, in the past week, I've started to notice my laptop behave more sluggishly and become quite slow when it would have otherwise handled the amount of applications open etc without any problems.

Scans with antiviruses over the past few weeks have flagged up removed so called viruses/ trojans , so I'm not sure whether this may have lead to my laptop suddenly becoming quite slow?

I have a Windows 8 laptop that's running incredibly slow. Several un-necessary processes are running in the background and possibly creating bad conflicts + malware somewhere.
Can't run HJT on it nor GMER or DDS.
However, here's MBAM log and Farbar Recovery scans:

Here are the 2 logs from Farbar Recovery Scan Tool, as the system is completely running awfully slow on start up and flipping through web pages:

hey guys im new to the forum and i would just like to ask if anyone can help me with my problem. i had recently turned off my computer and upon restarting it, it took longer than usual to boot from the welcome screen onto my desktop. as soon as it booted onto my desktop i noticed that it took longer for all the programs to start up. I tried going on my usual business, and wanted to play a new game that i had recently obtained. I started GameBooster and it would take a lot longer to start. then i started the game and it would also take longer to start then usual but once it did it ran fine. i have the same problem with pretty much all programs and applications, and all in all my computer seems slow in opening things and copying and deleting, i know its confusing but any help will be much appreciated. if you need any further information dont be hesitant to ask. thank you guys in advance.

Answer:slow startup and prgrams starting slow

A few small tasks that will help:
1. Remove large programs from start-up, these programs run in the background and can often slow down the boot process. Go to the control panel to enable/disable the start-up programs you have running.
2. Remove any large, unnecessary programs you don't use/will not need, just to free up some space on the :C drive.
3. Run a cleaner, to clean out unwanted temporary files on your system. you can also go to the start menu and type "temp" in the run box and delete the temporary files from there (works in windows vista, not sure if it works in windows 7 but i would try it anyway).
4. As always, run a firewall and an anti-virus program AT ALL TIMES and keep up with updates.
5. Install windows security updates whenever possible.
6. Schedule a monthly system defrag of your :C drive.
7. Download Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, it's powerful freeware that removes any malware that may be slowing your system down. (I used it to remove many Trojan horses from my desktop computer and noticed a significant speed increase).
Hope this helps.
