Preferred Solution: Startup taking long on my hp laptop.

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: Startup taking long on my hp laptop.

Test the hard drive with drive maker's diagnostic software for DOS as the drive could be starting to fail. The links are here: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm...The download is an ISO file from which you must make a CD using IMGBurn from here: http://filehippo.com/download_imgburn/When you've made the CD, boot your HP laptop from it to run the test on the hard drive.

i'm using a brand new laptop , bought last month or so, howveer, i see that post startup, every app , like google chrome, or clicking on a picture, takes ages to open, a friend of mine has a similar laptop, but quite old, but it works in a jiffy. what is wrong with my laptop, or is it because of the static and rotating hard disk?

Answer:apps taking too long to run after startup

Hi,My humble suggestion will be to test the hardware - extensive system testing (including hard drive, RAM):http://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c03467259If all the tests passed and issue still persists, you can try --If you've no personal data stored in your new laptop, please do a complete factory reset:http://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c04758961RegardsVisruth

I have noticed my new computer is taking FOREVER to start up compared to my old laptop and my really old desktop. I have windows vista home premium on this and the other two are running windows xp and take almost 1/10 the time required to startup. When i go to advanced tools it says that

Name: "Symantec Service Framework"
Filename: "ccSvcHst.exe"
Publisher: "Symantec Corporation"
Date Reported: "Mar 22, 2008 3:52 PM"
Time Taken: "50.00 Seconds"

I am well aware that is probably from Norton 360 I had a while back, but I uninstalled that a while ago so I am not sure what the problem is. I have tune-up utilites and nowhere in the startup manager does it says anything from symantec.

I probably wont get back to you guys until tomorow but please help me.
 

Answer:computer taking REALLY long to startup

Have you used the Norton Removal Tool? http://www.majorgeeks.com/Norton_Removal_Tool_SymNRT_d4749.html

It obviously wasn't fully removed.

CCleaner also has the ability to go through and see what is starting up when your computer does and delete programs you don't need at start up. http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4191.html

When i start up my computer, just before the XP loading screen, a black screen with a dash on the top left of the screen is shown for 4-5 mintues and then after so long does the computer start. What shall i do?
 

Answer:Solved: Startup taking long!!

Try booting up with nothing else connected to the PC except mouse & keyboard.
If it boots up now with no delay, something you disconnected is causing it.

In some cases, a BIOS update will fix it, but find out what the BIOS update actually fixes before applying it. Don't just apply it and hope for the best. BIOS updates (if there are any) are available from the your PC manufacturer's website.

The laptop i currently having problems is the Acer Aspire 4930.
This is one of my friends laptop and he gave up on taking care on it.
I popped the back cover and the front keyboard to remove some dust inside it.
This laptop was working after i popped it.

Fixes I have tried:

- Reformatting
- Reseating Ram and Hard Drive
- Changed Hard Drive
- Checked CPU Speed
- run sfc /scannow
- run chkdsk

Specs of the PC

Intel Core 2 Duo T5800

Mysteriously, at desktop it does not lag or freeze.

The term "a long time" is subjective; how long does it take in actual minutes and seconds? You could also try using MSconfig for diagnostic purposes.

My laptop: Dell Inspiron N5110 with 2.50 gHz Intel Core i5-2450M processor, 500 GB HDD, 6 GB memory.
OS: Starting from OEM installed Windows 7 Pro (x64), my upgrades to Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 went smoothly with some minor hiccups and my system is now Windows 10 Pro (X64) upgrade to 1511 build 10586 installed on Apr 25, 2016.
Following MS hotfixes have been installed thereafter:
KB3116278 and KB3142588 on Apr 25
KB3140741, KB3147458 and KB 3154132 on Apr 29
Both MBAM and Windows Defender, updated till May 7, do not show any virus activity.
Problem:
After Dell welcome screen and then a blue screen with Windows icon lasting only 1-2 sec, another blue screen appears with those 6 marbles spinning in a circle! This screen lasts for about 100 minutes (yes, 1 hr. 40 min) and only then I get Windows logon screen. Thereafter, everything (at least those I use mostly) seems to work normally.
Windows 10 latest update is not a culprit as there was no such problem till about April 30, but I do not remember what else I did thereafter.

Through msconfig, when I select "Diagnostic startup", booting takes only a few seconds though many services don't get launched.

Answer:Windows 10 taking very long to complete startup

Hello, I suggest trying the standard repairs.
First, open an elevated command prompt:
Windows key + X, Click command prompt (admin).
Type
chkdsk C: /F <return>
Your PC will restart.
Post back the result, which will be on the screen briefly.
Otherwise you can get the result as follows:
How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!

If ok, open an elevated command prompt:
Windows key + X, Click command prompt (admin).
Type
sfc /scannnow <return>

Wait and post the results. (Often this will fail- the latest Win update is said to have solved some MS problems).
If it fails and the only failures shown in the log file are
opencl.dll (Nvidia related) or some sound files, you can ignore the failure report.

Note that a very strongly recommended way of giving you a means of recovering your PC to a working state relatively quickly and without technical help is disk imaging (E.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot medium + large enough external storage).

Hi there!

I hope that someone can offer me some help!

I have just built my new PC:

Intel Core i7 5820K @ 3.3Ghz
Gigabyte X99-Gaming 5 Motherboard
Gigabyte GTX970 GFX Card
Corsair Vengeance 16Gb RAM @ 2100Mhz
Corsair CS650M PSU
Samsung 840 EVO SSD
Steelseries Sensei [RAW]

My issue is that it takes longer to boot up and shutdown than my old PC:

AMD Phenom II x4 965 @ 3.4Ghz
Gigabyte 970A-DS3 Motherboard
XFX HD6850 GFX Card
Geil Black Dragon 8Gb RAM @ 1600Mhz
Corsair CS500 PSU
OCZ Vertex3 SSD 120Gb
Steelseries Sensei [RAW]

My old PC would not even finish the swirling flag at startup, and now it not only finishes forming the flag but also hangs around for a while afterwards.

I have checked Event Viewer and there are no errors or warnings on startup. I have also run the Windows Memory Diagnostics tool, which found no errors.

Having read many forums on the X99 chipset, people have said that there are still some issue with performance, which need to be ironed out, but having said that, a friend of mine also built exactly the same PC, bar the SSD (Kingston Hyper X), and his boots up virtually without even showing the swirling flag. So... I'm stumped and am hoping someone here can help me out a little?

As an additional comment, it seems to take a lot longer to shutdown than my old PC too.

As you can possibly imagine, having spent a sizable figure on this new PC, compared to my old one, I am a little bothered!

Hello,

I have a laptop running Windows XP Home Edition SP3 which is taking really long to startup. It takes about 6+ minutes for me to start seeing my desktop icons, so I thought that this kind of wait is a little out of the ordinary.

I have already done the following.
Removed all unessential item from the MSConfig startup menue.
Scanned for viruse/malware
Disk Defragment
Disk Cleanup
CheckDisk /r /f
None of these things have improved the startup time. I should have done this from the start but it is now a little late. This has been going on for about 3 months otherwise I would have done a system restore. Only essential applications are in the startup menu and all of these would be non GUI programs such as an update manager or service. I read somewhere that you can look at the %SystemRoot%\NtBtlog.txt file to better diagnose the cause but there is a giant log in this file whcih does not seem to help me much.

If anyone has some advice that they can share it would be very much appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

Regards,

Max

from the time I press the power button to power up the PC to the time it gets to the log on screen (username/password), it takes anywhere between a minute to 3 minutes at times, usually 2-3 minutes. It just sits there, pure black screen then eventually the log on screen comes up. I have checked what I could in the Bios to make sure everything is ok and it appears it is. The pc is only 4 months old and wasn't like this before. Moreover, I sure don't expect Vista to act like this much less with a new Dell PC....help, please?? PS- I have the Vista Premium (32-bit) on a Dell Dimension E520 with Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6300 (1.86GHz,1066FSB) with 2MB cache, 2GB DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz, NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE Graphics GPU and 250GB SATA II Hard Drive (7200RPM).

Answer:Why is Windows 7 taking long time to load files on startup

One option in the advanced boot options (F8 at start up) should be "Last Good Configuration", if it is then take that option and it should be the first basic fix to get it to start up. If it starts but does not fully load or still takes too long then try again and take the Safe Mode option and run the three programs under Safe Mode as recommended in reply #4. Save the logs from the results (Copy Paste into Word or other program for now) and reboot into normal mode. Then copy paste the results from those logs into a reply here so they can be reviewed to see if there is more you will need to do.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Dear all,

1. Windows 7 Ultimate - 64 bit
2. 8GB Ram
3. 2 Sata Hard Disks of 80 GB and 320 GB (both of which are relatively empty)
4. Radeon HD Graphics Card
5. Antivirus - Microsoft Security Essentials
6. Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-A75M-UD2H
7. CPU - AMD A8-3850 (2.9 GHZ)

Off late, my PC takes way too long to start any application. At times, even if I click on a folder, it doesn't open and finally the PC gives me the 'Wait or Close' option.

Even while switching off the PC, it takes a long time.

I clean my PC regularly and run scans from time to time. The PC doesn't show any virus or malware as of now.

Any suggestions what I can do? I assembled it not more than 2 years ago and it's started behaving like this off late.

Also, at times my 320 GB hard disk doesn't show up under my computer. I have to open my cabinet and tighten the SATA and Power cable and then it shows up again.

Any help will be appreciated.

Tell us the details of how you "clean my PC". What do you do exactly and how often?

Have you checked running processes or services through Task Manager when it seems to be slow?

The drive issue may be the cause. Have you tried another cable or connecting the hard drive to another port?

So my Sony VAIO laptop is taking very long to boot up. Takes about 30 min - hour to boot to the start menu and that is just the beginning when I try
To log in to my profile it takes even longer. When it does go to my profile I cannot open anything. I can only use my computer when it is in safe mode. So went to Sony support website and chated with one of the employes, he connected to my computer (had control of my computer) he checked what the problem was and said this:
12:40 AM Sony Support- Tech 10: I see that issue is with the system Services, Corrupted Registry files and configuration settings of the Windows operating system in the computer that are causing the issue. * * * * * * * *

And said this would be the way to solve the problem
12:40 AM Sony Support- Tech 10: It is required to manually reconfigure the system services, repair the corrupted Registry files and the operating system functionality settings in the computer to resolve the issue. * *

He could fixed my computer manually but with a price, so I told him I would think about it. The next day I checked this website that said I can fix my problem myself here is the link *(Link removed)
Can you tell me if this would work to solve my problem.
Also can you tell me what things I can do to fix my computers problems?
Also is this problem serious enough that I have to go to a computer repair shop?
 

Answer:Sony Laptop Probelm ... Laptop taking long to boot up

Personally I would back up your data and reformat and do a complete system restore. If it is taking that long to boot up then you have a lot of corruptions. Would be quicker to wipe it and start over.

Hello,

My Samsung laptop brought couple months back keeps taking a long time to sleep. The actual time taken seems to vary greatly, sometimes a few seconds, but otherwise hours upon hours (I at that point shut it down).

The time it takes for it to sleep does not seem to always correlate to the numbers of applications I have open either, nor the RAM usage. Sometimes it sleeps fine with a lot of programs open, other times it fails to when there are only a few.

I have looked around the forum, but cannot find an answer. Please help.

Sgtmook.

Answer:Laptop taking too long to sleep.

Here are some commands you can run from an ELEVATED Command prompt that might help.

powercfg -devicequery wake_armed
powercfg -requests
powercfg -energy
powercfg /?

powercfg /? is the MS HELP for the other commands i suggested (and more).
If you get anything back from powercfg commands you need help with, post back with screen prints showing the results.

I noticed you have a BSOD thread for sleep issues.
http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...-sleeping.html
Maybe you should post a comment in that thread about this issue including a link to this thread?
Someone that helped with that issue might be able to help with this.

In my experience:
Windows sleep and hibernate are awesome when they work correctly.
If there are issues, it can be a never ending nightmare trying to find the cause and fix.

It seems there are too many factors that can affect sleep and no-one including MS has fully documented or understands all of it.
- Bad driver, usually video
- Unsaved Windows theme
- BIOS settings, and maybe BIOS version
- Devices that can wake the PC
- Programs that can wake the PC
- Scheduled Tasks that can wake the PC
- Wireless mice
- yadda, yadda, ...

I just noticed and tried the "wake_from_any" powercfg option with this command:
powercfg -devicequery wake_from_any

I've never used this to resolve issues i worked on, but maybe this can help you, or add more confusion!

I have a Lenovo Z850 laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium. I?ve had it for over 3 years and it has steadily been taking longer and longer to fully boot. It only takes a minute or so to get to the login screen, but once I login, it takes over 30 minutes to get to the point where I can open programmes, and then it is incredibly slow. I can feasibly use it in Safe Mode with networking, but it still takes 10 min+ to boot. Only a week ago, it was taking 15+ minutes to boot, but was still usable, so I wasn?t too concerned as I was looking into buying a new computer after Christmas anyway.

I have checked the hard drive and RAM and there appear to be no hardware issues. I have run several virus/spyware programmes, CCcleaner etc to no avail. A while ago, the fan got clogged up and the laptop started to overheat, so I am wondering if this damaged something.

I can?t even do a full Windows restore, there is a recovery partition, but I can?t find a system image within it. I don?t have a backup disc. Is buying a reinstall disc a feasible option or is there anything else I can do before giving in and buying a new laptop?

Thanks

Answer:Laptop taking a very long time to boot

Hi, have you run chkdsk, or disc clean up, have you ever detracted the hard drive.

A little dash will start to blink at the top left corner and then it just freezes. It managed to load up windows once since it started doing this, but it took so long to log in and after I logged in I could move around the cursor, but it was taking far to long to do anything else. For example it took around forty-five minutes just to bring up the start menu.

Answer:Laptop taking extremely long time to do anything.

I would guess that your hard drive is going bad. Windows gets really fussy when part of the OS is located on the bad part of the drive and it behaves exactly as you describe, usually won't load but if it does, it just takes forever to do anything. I would recommend going to the hard drive manufactures website and download their diagnostic utility.

So a few days ago my computer froze while i was in the middle of watching something. I decided to restart it because that usually seems to help things but instead when i turned it back on it seemed to freeze on this dark grey screen. I tried restarting it again, and it started loading on the HP screen, but then eventually wound up on that blue screen with the frowny face saying that it was gonna restart itself. So i let it do its thing but it winds back up on that same screen like three different times. Not knowing what else to do, i tried taking the battery out for several minutes and holding down the power button for like 30 seconds. i put it back in and now it isn't even going to that blue screen, just ending up on this blank grey screen, or just not moving on from the HP loading screen. A few times now, it's managed to go to my home screen! But when i try to click the mouse or type some keys to get to the page where i put in my password to log in, it does nothing, just stays on the home screen, so i guess the keys and mouse aren't working either...i tried restarting it and holding down the esc button, holding down f10, holding down everything and nothing. please help!

How big is your hard drive? If it is low on space then that could be the reason it's taking so long to defrag. Also do you have any programs running in the background?

Hi there, I have a HP G42 i3 Laptop that is just taking really long to boot. It started acting this way ever since I came back from my backpacking trip to Europe last year (where I accidentally dropped my laptop bag with my laptop still in it).

I didn't see any change in the performance immediately after but rather a gradual decline in the performance after that...the most obvious of which is the time it takes to boot. The moment I turn on my laptop, I would need a good 10 minutes to come to the windows login page and another 20 - 30 minutes to get to my desktop. On the outside I have a slight dent at the corner of my laptop but other than that, it seems to look ok on the outside.

Another major issue I face as soon as I login to my desktop is that I experience major slowness and lag. Even a simple move of the mouse cursor would lag (although not often, it does happen)

Please help. Do let me know if more information is required. P.S. am not a tech savvy person.

For some reason my laptop takes forever to connect to a shared drive on my desktop on my home network. I've tried connecting to it by mapping the drive and through windows explorer and same thing. Sometimes it won't even connect at all. I don't have this issue with other computers on the network. And when I say a long time I am meaning like 5 minutes or more. At first it was maybe only 1-2 minutes but it is getting worse. My mouse icon has had the spinning ring around it trying to connect the whole time I have been writing this. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Both computers are Win 7 pro x64 with sp1. Desktop is wired directly to the router and laptop has excellent signal strength. Both have DHCP reservations set in the router. The way I usually connect is by starting a run box and typing \\[desktop pc name]\[share] then it just spins for a while.

Answer:Laptop taking a long time to connect to network share, if at all.

Hello,

From your laptop's Device Manager, locate the network adapter in question, right click on it, choose Advanced Tab, find link Speed and Duplex. Change the Auto Detect to Auto Negotiate 1000 or 100mbps. See if it helps.

Firewall or Security Software might be also interfering.

Why is this. Like 10 minutes plus and it still says recycling. It should only take a second. Is it bad to let it continue at its own pace or should I restart the PC and try it again?

Answer:Recycling a movie from my harddrive is taking long long time.

Let the system do its work. You just want to wait. Usually this don't occur unless it is a huge file. Be patient for a reasonable time. Still if it remains, try logging off/restart.

I am running Windows 10 on an HP ENVY 15 64bit, intel CORE i7.  Applications began taking forever to load.  I restarted in Safe Boot and ran the MBAM, but it was limited on what it could do.  I got nothing on the logs as far as malicious files.  I restarted and when the Logo popped up it circled and circled and the it went to a black screen for a very long time (I didn't time it).  then it showed my desktop and my background picture had disappeared.  Finally everything on the desktop finally started showing up one at a time. Same with the taskbar, one at a time, slowly.  The background pic never came back on.  I ran MBAM again and got a clean scan.  There is still something very wrong.  Everything was running fine until I downloaded two applications to find partitions on my Dell Venue. So that may be where something crawled out.  The apps were worthless, [enter scolding here].

Answer:HP ENVY 15 Laptop taking forever to startup

I see that the same issue I had previously about a year and hallf ago was pulled up right under this one. 
That was a dfferent laptop.  I have ugraded since then and was trying to download a program from a website to restore partitions for another laptop/tablet.
When I power this one on, it takes awhile and the HP logo pops up then it goes to black screen for about 8 seconds, then it goes to a blue scren and those little white balls keep cyclying and cycling for another 10-15 seconds, then black screen again for another 5 seconds then finally the lock screen.  I enter my pin and it sits about 2 seconds then the desktop opens and the taskbar pops out empty.  Then each app that;s pinned to it shows up one at a time and so do the icons on the desktop (which are not many).  This started after I downloaded those programs from the web.  Yes I know I shouldn't have. Thought I had protection.  I have deleted them from my files but my concern is that they may be in the registry and I don't get into places I unless I know what I'm doing.  When it comes to registry, I know nothing.
I will look around your website in the Virus Removal tab and look for something to clean my registry out.  MBAM is not doing it.
 
Thanks heaps.

I have a Toshiba Satellite P755 with a Core i7 CPU, 6GB RAM and a 750GB HDD. It's only problem is that the HDD runs FOREVER (about 5 minutes) after boot up, and that interferes with opening apps, etc. The startup items are at a bare minimum. Task Mgr. does not show anything taking an undue amount of CPU resources.

Anybody have any ideas how to improve the situation? Is the Hitachi HDD just slow?

Answer:[SOLVED] Laptop startup REALLY long

Now, if I turn it off and then back on, it keeps doing the same thing EXCEPT, if I hold down any key and then turn on the laptop, the same screens will come up but the password window won't auto full and it doesn't beep.  Once I let go of the keyboard key I'm holding down, the password window will only auto fill 2 digits instead of filling up all the way and there's no beep at all on the times I try this.  If anyone can help me, I would forever be in your debt. ...

Well atm my desktop PC is a intel dual core 2 with 1 GHz ram... I am using nero to copy dvds and it seems that it is taking way too long to burn a single dvd... Like 55 minutes to be exact.

It only takes me roughly 12 minutes on my notebook. Would someone be able to tell me why i is taking so long? Is it hardware related or software or maybe abit of both... My firned has the exact pc and i have told him to try test out by burning a movie to see how long it takes... i havent notice how long the porblems has been existing.. I ahve used such programs as Nero 7 Esstentials, DVD shrink etc... Does anyone know what program would be fastest to burn? i think atm i am burning at 16x tho its the smae speed on my notebook but the time differnece varies greatly.. Please help???

T.T
 

Answer:Burning DVD taking too long?

Try burning at a slower speed, like 8x. Watch the buffer in Nero, does it fill up and then empty constantly? I'm talking about the big buffer bar, not the small one that is the drive buffer, although that should be consistently above 85%.

Its possible your drive is in PIO mode rather than DMA so you should check that out too.

When I go to any website the "looking up..." process takes as long as 10 seconds before it loads the page.

I had this posted in the Windows XP section. I was told to post here since I currently have no anti virus programs (to try to save resources since I use a netbook). I first installed Avast, and then removed it and installed Microsoft Security Essentials which I just recently removed. I've had this problem while the anti virus programs were still installed, I removed Microsoft Security Essentials, just to see if it changed anything, but it didn't.

There are other computers connected to my router but my computer is the only one with this issue. This problem occurs with all web browsers I have. Firefox, Chrome, IE.

I have Norton internet Security 2007. A "red exclamation point shows that I need a full virus scan. I have tried three times to do it and it is taking way too long. I know that I have over 300,000 files from doing other scans and after 4 hours only 75,000 files were scanned. So I stopped it and started over again and the same result. It can take that long can it? At certain points it is taking as long as two minutes to do one file.
I have a XPS Dell 420 with Vista Ultimates OS. Machine is running very efficient and fast. I also use Spy Sweeper, C Cleaner and Windows Defender.
Any ideas as to why the scan would take so long. Any suggestions. There are no
virus problems showing with any of my tools.

Thanks, Schaeffdog
 

Answer:Norton Taking way to long ???

Probably just Norton. I see almost as many problems with Norton as I do with viruses.

Norton is really a resource hog though, even if it isn't scanning. How much memory(ram) does your system have, and do you have any other programs running when you are trying to do a scan? Although I personally would probably just get rid of Norton, I probably do have a little bias. There is probably a way, somehow, to increase it's performance to suitable levels. But, anyway, like I said, the first thing I'd check is how much ram do you have?

Hello, i have an ideacentre a700 but the pc is taking too long to start up, i have to press the power on button for 30 seconds or more to start the pc. Anyone know what possible be the problem? Thanks

Answer:Taking too long to start up

It should start after one short press. Unplug the power lead for few minutes, then plug it back and press power button once for 2 sek. Other thing you can do is to reset bios to factory settings, press f12 when computer starts and chose settings. If that doesn't help then your motherboard is faulty.

Can any one explain what's happening now that I have installed IE7?It seems to take forever booting up, about 3 minutes, and when it eventually does, the warning box in the right-hand corner comes up and tells me that the firewall is not turned on and to click this box to fix the problem .Before you can do anything it then switches on the fire wall, and the last thing to happen is that the floppy light comes on very briefly and you can then proceed as normal.On a couple of occasions it has booted up very quickly but the norm is about 3 minutes.There is no problem after boot up but why is it taking so long? any help would be very gratefully received as usual Cheers Ray

Answer:boot up taking too long with IE7

Had something similar just after installing IE7 on one machine. Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall IE7. Reboot and you should have reverted to IE6. Then go to Windows Update and re-install IE7. Check Windows updates for Optional Software updates, there should be a few for IE7. Do this at least twice because I seem to remember that there are updates for updates!!!

Question: Scans taking long

Hello all I have noticed that scanning with Superantispyware/Avira is taking a long time. The scan seems to spend most of the time scanning cache/cache.recyclebin/temp folders. I have a 1tb Western digital caviar black drive. Around 200gb of the 1tb is being used. Takes around an hour to scan the drive. Any ideas? I doubt I have a virus(No slowdowns, errors and such)but I'm not ruling that out.
 

Answer:Scans taking long

In SAS for 200GB an hour would be about right for a Full Scan, but not for a Quick Scan. Not sure how long Avira would take, but when I used that AV I remember it being pretty slow.

Are your cache/temp folders full of stuff is why it's taking so long? If you keep them cleaned out with CCleaner or similar then SAS and Avira should breeze right through them.

I'm working on a customers Windows Vista computer that was badly infected with all sorts of adware and other malware. After manually removing some of the most obvious offenders with RevoUninstaller, I then proceeded to run MalwareBytes.
 
MalwareBytes ran for over 40 hours and seemed to be hung up with processing temporary internet files (I could see the filenames changing so figure it was still working albeit very slowly), so I finally aborted the scan and had it clean up what it had found to that point. Then rebooted the system.
 
Thinking that the next thing to do would be to run TFC and see if I couldn't get rid of some of that internet history (so I could then re-attempt the scan and hope for a successful completion). I started that running from my flash drive as I usually do. It seemed to run fine processing through some of the user accounts but when it got to the user account that is used most of the time and finding 137GB (yes I said gigabytes) of temporary files it seemed to hang there. The disk activity light seems to be on solid and nearly 15 hours later there doesn't seem to be any progress and the program title bar now says that the program is not responding.

Answer:taking too long for me to troubleshoot!

Speed isn't everything - being thorough and making sure you actually fix the problem is more important than just getting it done fast (unless you're being paid lots to do it quickly/correctly).

As for "tips on being quicker"... that will come with experience, but also depends entirely on the issue you're trying to fix. Some things you'll be able to recognize and fix quickly, others will require research and multiple steps of troubleshooting.

My current PC is one month old and the antivirus scan with Avira used to take around 10 minutes. It hovered around this time until recently, then it's suddenly taking almost a hour. I thought this was because of the time it takes to scan personal data like hundreds of gigs of games and music, but the 99% of the time it was scanning... pic related.
Basically a lot of files, each one named like in the pic, each individual one taking a long time (the counter would be at, let's say, 367888 files scanned, stay like that for four seconds and then go to 367889, rinse and repeat for fifty minutes) when it's usually thousand of files every second.
I'm sure my PC is safe with no viruses whatsoever, I'm just curios: what exactly ARE those files to require such a slow scan? I guess some vital OS files, but how come I have so many of them when I didn't just a few days ago (keep in mind I didn't download anything other than regular Windows Updates)? Is there any way I can clean or remove them up to quicken the process?

Answer:What's in my OS that's taking so long to scan?

Not a computer guru but I see that you are using a "Free Virus program". Now windows updates contain some very big files and Your virus program will take longer to scan. So a free virus program is not going to give the same performance as those that you buy. Do you know that "Comcast" customers get "Norton Suite" (a security and virus program) for free whereas others have to pay for it? Its not automatic. You need to download it from the Comcast site. It has backup & restore program built in as well as other features.

Hi folks,
Recently my PC is taking a very long time to start up. It can be 10 minutes or more before I can open Firefox. I thought it was caused by AVG so removed that and installed Avast having failed to install Trend Titanium as it kept telling me my Internet Explorer was not up to date even though it was.
I gave up trying and installed Avast free version along with Malware Bytes though I now only have the Windows firewall. I looked at Zone Alarm and Comodo firewalls but both wanted me to make certain things my default so I didn't go ahead.
This morning having waited a long time for the PC to wake up, I restarted it and then it came alive quite quickly.
I have done full scans with both Avast and Malware Bytes and two issues were found by Avast and moved to chest. MBAM found nothing.
PC is Dell Dimension 5150 with 1 GB of ram running XP SP3.
Any thoughts on the above, folks?
Thanks

Answer:PC taking a long time to start up.

Another couple of GB's of RAM for a start. I do not know how long you have had your PC but looking at the specs (P4 CPU) it is pretty old.
After adding more RAM you might want to think about a clean install of Windows XP + SP3. But that would require a bit of preparation.

When I turn on the CPU and monitor, the monitor light keeps blinking for about every 3 seconds for about 5 hours (sometimes more) and then the monitor finally turns on. How long it takes for it to finally turn on depends on how long it has been turned off. One time, I turned it on after it had been off for about 30 minutes, and it only took about 15 minutes to turn on rather than 5 hours. My friend is telling me that there might be a problem with the graphics card, but the thing is, when the monitor finally does turn on, there is nothing wrong with the picture, it works perfectly; the only problem is that it takes too long to turn on.
So, what should I do to fix this problem?

I just installed vista ultimate 32 bit on my pc, now after updating the pc with about 40 updates and restarting, it is still booting after about 30 minutes, could it be that it is normal for so many updates? or has something bad happened?

Edit: if this helps the point im waiting at is the loading bar with Microsoft Corporation written under it.

Answer:Vista taking LONG to boot.

Hmmm well now the loading stopped and it rebooted just to start loading again.

If it helps, this is a new ATA drive I installed vista on, now set to primary master, after I downloaded the updates I changed the cable it was attached to and plugged in my old drive as slave, with the new drive being primary master now(although I don't think this could affect anything).

Is it normal for it to reboot like that after certain updates?

I did the BIOS update based on the alert I got in my HP Support Assitant. It taking almost 7 hours now and still saying "Installing". I don't know what is the problem with the installation. I have all my data in this laptop.  My product Number is J6M42PA#ACJ and under warrenty period. Please let me know what to do now and Do I need to take the backup as I don't know whether the system will behave same as before or not if I cancel the installation?.

I am using a AMD K6111, 400Mgh, 64MB, with Windows 98, and Explorer 4.0. I have just had this computer checked out at a local shop. They tell me there is nothing wrong. However it is taking me much too long to move through the screens. Any help would be appreciated. Also, if the local shop replaces an item under warranty, what do we receive from them to verify this warranty exchange. Thanks George
 

Answer:It is taking to long to download on the internet

Need to elaborate on the issue...

How slow?
Ever happen before?
When did it start and is there a pattern?
What apps. are running in background?
What type of modem and what ISP?

Those are just a few but you need to specify as much as possible

As for warranty work? It depends on the warranty but if done through an ASC for the manufacturer then first ensure you call the manufacturer's support line and get a case/ticket number and the operator number of the tech. who takes your call and authorizes the warranty repair...

From the service center ensure you get proper receipts as well as copy of work order with what was done, when, part numbers, and list of any tests to verify repair...To wit, just be a smart consumer and get verification for what you can...BOL
