Jerky/slow scrolling in xp HELP ME SOLVE PLEASE

Question: Jerky/slow scrolling in xp HELP ME SOLVE PLEASE

Ok i decided to get rid of my dell 1.8ghz 2gb ram 80gb hdd laptop and bought:

A hp compaq 2.0ghz core2duo, 3gb ram, 320gb hdd just to 'have the best' and now i wish i didnt 'downGrade'. Other specs inc: IE7, xp pro sp3.

Right issue is: Whereever there is a scrolling box or webpage, for instance if i google something then scroll from top to bottom it will be smooth till about half way then it will jerk and be delayed for a second or 2. Its not webpage specific it will happen even if i goto say internet options then advanced tab and scroll on that it will jerk. On the odd occasion it will be SO BAD it looks as if my vga card drivers are not installed.Also if i click something then start typing it will not pickup the first letters/numbers i type, this is also frustrating as if im typing a password it wont pick up the first digits and i have to start again. Also when highligting text it again wont highlight it all it will pause/stop for a second or 2 before highlighting what i want it to. To solve the issue with no luck ive tried the following:

Update my radeon hd 3200 drivers
reformat laptop (xp pro sp3)
Install all drivers possible
control panal>mouse>wheel>1 as following amount of lines per time
control panel>internet options>advanced>uncheck smooth scrolling
control panel>internet options>advanced>uncheck enable visual styles

Now i am stuck on what to do on how to solve this annoying issue, im on the verge of selling up and going back to my older slower spec laptop which was super super fast compared. Ive downloaded all xp drivers from the hp support page, the only thing im not sure ive got are the chipset/mobo drivers but if i didnt then surely it wouldnt work at all? Help

Is may be just me but scrolling up and down through posts in this forum seems slow and jerky compared to eight forums.

If I press the arrow keys to scroll up and down then it scrolls a bit, pauses for a split second and then carries on a bit more before pausing again. Is this just me or is it some design to make it work better on phones or something?

I tried different themes but it is the same.

Answer:Scrolling seems slow and jerky

It may be specific to your system. I don't have this problem. Try another browser.

Answer:Page Scrolling slow and jerky

Hi Peter,


Quote:




Running Win.Xp Pro 64




I take it that all of your drivers are up to date. Getting drivers for XP x64 can be a bit of a nightmare due to lack of support for x64 XP. There is better support for 64bit OS in Vista and above.

Can you post your full specs. Download and run Speccy for me. Once the program has gathered the required information, go to the top of the Speccy window and do File>Publish Snapshot. Click Yes when prompted. Now copy and paste the URL address that it gives you to your next post.

When did you first notice the issue?

Hey,

My computer crashed after a power outage and I had to replace the power supply (same specs as original, but with quieter fan).

I have the HP Pavilion a1630n ('rents don't trust me to build a computer ).

It has 2 gigabytes of RAM and even my very lacking 512 MB laptop doesn't have this issue. I would truly appreciate any help that could be given.

Answer:VERY (!) slow scrolling and jerky window movement.

What brand and spec is the power supply you put in?

Ok, onto my second issue.

The computer i'm fixing (3ghz Intel, 512mb Ram) has had scrolling issues before and after the format. It is the same on firefox or IE in that whenever you scroll down a page using either the mouse or the keyboard, it jerks heavily, as if it's loading the whole page again every second.

The mouse is a wired old Logitech model.

Question: Scrolling is jerky

I recently downloaded Jing. I used it once, didn't like it and removed it. Since that time I've been troubled with an issue with the screen only when I scroll. Instead of it moving up or down smoothly, it gives the appearance of "refreshing" itself each time. It's unusual, hard on the eyes, and probably shouldn't do that! I've checked mouse settings, screen resolution and can't find a fix!

I'm noticing a weird annoyance when using the mousewheel to scroll in IE7. It jerks about 20 pixels every second for about 5 or 6 times.

Please help. I tried this under security but maybe it should have been here. I've check out several boards and seen problems close to mine but the fixes don't work. This started a couple months ago about the time I upgraded Netscape but I can't swear that has anything to do with it. I've always used Netscape because it runs faster for me. When I scroll it is either very slow or it stops for a few seconds and then jerks to catch up. Typing does the same thing. I will type several words before they all of a sudden show up on the screen. All this is happens about half the time. I've noticed even when I play Hoyle card games it sometimes is jerkly. I am mostly looking around Ebay so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. I absolutely never open emails with attachments or click on anything in an email. I use Norton Systemworks, Norton Firewall and I've recently used AdAware and CWShredder. I had a tech person "tune up" my computer, rid of temp. files, defragged, antivirus, etc. My computer is only 1 1/2 yrs. old. Please help me and keep in mind I know more about the Internet than I do the computer itself. This has taken all the joy out of being on line.

Hi,

Had no idea where to post this question, it kind of lands in a grey area, but seeing as my O/S is XP, thought this would be the most suitable place to start.

I have just performed a clean install, and am in the process of adding, all my AV, and program software. I have however noticed, that when I scroll with my mouse wheel, down the page, it kind of ripples rather than smoothly scrolling.

Have I maybe set my screen up at the wrong resolution? I didn't install any monitor drivers during the install, cos hey, the monitor is working after all. Could something be missing though?

It's not a major issue, but I would like to iron out all these little niggles early on to keep things working tip top.
Please feel free to suggest if this post would be better served in a browser area of the forum, or anywhere else for that matter.

Thankyou.

If anyone having a jerky/stuttering/lagging when scrolling a webpage in Firefox, here's a fix.

Type in "about:config" in Firefox (address bar) and enter general.smoothScroll under filter. Double click on general.smoothScroll to set it to true.

Or else just install add-on smoothwheel.

I don't understand why they didn't set it to smooth scrolling to true in the first place. First I thought Firefox 3.5.1 was buggy and lagging when tryng to scroll but found out that my IE8 scrolling was very smooth.

Answer:Chromebook scrolling jerky and hesitates

Hi croths,
 
So the step of logging into the Guest account is a great first step. The idea behind is that you wouldn't have any of your personal applications or settings loaded, and can isolate if the issue is related to the software (operating system or hardware). Considering it was better, but not perfect(?) the next step would be do a 'power wash' which will rebuild the OS and let you start over. It's quick and takes just a couple of minutes, but if you have personal data you want to save, you'll need to back that up first.
 
Here are steps to do a powerwash: http://acer.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/27685
 
Next step would be to do a full system recovery, you can download an OS onto a flashdrive and install it onto your Chromebook. Here are steps: http://acer.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/27637
 
Finally, if you're still having trouble I would suggest contacting support as it may be a hardware issue we need to address for you.
Hope this helps,Cory

Hello there folks today I got a lovely new white Lumia 1320 which is all great and working well. Except for one thing. In Instagram,WP Central and a little bit in Facebook app when scrolling it jerks alot. It also does it slightly in 6 Tag.

Okay, so my computer is a compaq hp professional. And It's a hand me down but we did get a reboot cd.
A week ago, my computer got a HUGE malware infection and I had to reboot the whole computer. So it's nice and clean now.

But the problem is when I'm on IE or FF, the scrolling is veryveryvery jerky and I took off the smooth scrolling so it would be faster. I even upgraded it. So I'm running on IE7 and FF 3.
Even making the windows smaller and moving them across the screen is jerky.
Help for that, please.

Another thing is that the speakers will not work. And I thought it was just the speakers at first so I tried headphones but that didn't work either. I tried going to the Start -> Accessories -> Volume Control because there was no speaker icon.
And I got this message;
There are no active mixer devices available. To install mixer devices, go to the Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Add Hardware.

And so I followed the directions but I couldn't find that Printers and Other Hardware folder.
So I looked it up online and some suggested to go to the Sounds, Audios, etc folder and make sure it's on speaker. (or something like that)
But in the Audio tab, everything was grayed out.
Please help on that too.

Answer:Jerky Scrolling, No sound from speakers or headphones.

After you reinstalled Windows, did you install video and sound drivers?It sounds like you didn't. The video driver will get rid of the jerky scrolling.Audio drivers will restore sound. Do you have any other cd's for the computer other than the one you mentioned? Your drivers may be on it. If you don't have cd you will have to download the drivers from HP.You can search for the drivers you need at HP support.If you have any problems finding the correct drivers, please post back and let us know the make and model of your computer. http://www.hp.com/#Support

Hi everyone!

I've got a problem with Internet Explorer (who doesn't?). I have a wheel mouse and when I use it to go up and down a page, it used to scroll smooth as silk, but now the screen jerks and lags. Its really annoying. Only been doing it a couple of days. I just upgraded from 128mb to 256mb, and it still does it. This also happens in text documents.

Also, when I open new windows, or when pages load with new windows, they don't pop up anymore, they minimize to the bottom of the screen and I have to right click+maximize to bring it up. About one out of every 10 or so times, they won't come up at all. I can't figure out what is causing this at all.

The first problem might just be some setting with the mouse. I went into Control Panel/Mouse and played around with the number of lines (the default is 3) but it didn't help.

Any suggestions? Both of these problems seemed to have started at the exact same time (about 4 days ago).

I have an HP Pavilion 7960

Answer:Xp Slow And Jerky Somebody Please HELP!

If I understand what you have said you 1st installed WIN 98 and then installed the XP upgrade. OK, if so, you do not have to install WIN 98. Backup any files you may need to floppy - CD, etc. You need both the WIN 98 & XP Upgrade discs. Put the XP Upgrade in and reboot system. Make sure your BIOS is set to boot from CD. It has been a awhile since I installed an upgrade but follow the prompts. At some point, if you don't reformat the drive, it well detect the WIN 98 OS and ask if you want to over right it. You do! You should be prompted about formating you hard drive. I would go with the FULL format to NTFS. Along the way you will be prompted to insert your WIN 98 CD. M$ just wants to check that you do have a previous WIN OS that is eligible for the upgrade. WIN 98 is. All it does is check the CD then it should tell you to take it out and put the XP Update CD back in. Kick back and enjoy the ride. I probably don't have the exact sequence listed but if you ran the upgrade before you know how to follow the prompts. Bottom line--you don't need to install WIN 98 at all!!!

Good Luck

Question: Slow & jerky IE6

IE has been really slow & jerky recently: scrolling with the mouse wheel jerks around rather than being smooth, when I pass over a link it takes a second for it to highlight (like it's lagged), it takes another second or two after clicking on a link for it to actually register, highlighting text takes a second until the highlight actually shows up and then it takes another second when I click elsewhere to unhighlight a selection, typing on a page (forms, this message, etc.) hiccups so that I'm still typing but it doesn't register until a second or two later, buttons on a page (like "Save Changes" down on this page) take a second to register, and pages with a lot of images scroll ridiculously slowly. Unless I'm mistaken, this seemed to coincide with my move into a new apartment and cable Internet. Before we had DSL at the house where I was and I never had this problem.

I've tried running Norton, checking for viruses, defragging, getting all the latest windows updates, and nothing seems to make a difference: there's still a terrible lag in the activities I mentioned above. What could it be? I've tried testing it on a loaded webpage while the computer's disconnected (physically) from the Internet and it's still jerky, so I don't think it's the connection itself. As far as I can tell the rest of Windows is working fine... Sifting through directories in My Computer and Explorer seem to scroll fine.

Answer:Slow & jerky IE6

Morgan,

My sympathies.

About a thousand possibilities run through my mind, and you're on the way to most of them way ahead of me:

Get out the screwdrivers, open 'er up, and check to make sure that all cards and cables are securely seated since the move.

If you have Aida32, run it and read it, especially on memory.

But the most interesting of the "usual suspects" that comes to mind is your network settings involved in the switch from DSL to cable modem. There should be significant differences in settings for the two, and since you seem to have your problems ONLY when on the Net (and thus ONLY when you're using your cable actively), I'd look to those settings.

There are a number of sites available that will help you figure the right re-sets for yourself if you're comfy with regediting and such, or they'll offer you free or cheap sware that will give you a one-size-fits-most solution for your type of hookup to the Net. Speedguide is one of the best, I think. Try it. Everything you do to get a better response on the Net is reversable.

My PC (Acer) suddenly started to run slowly and very jerky. This happened yesterday morning after I started it up (I had shut it down the night before).
When typing there is a noticeable delay between hitting a letter and it appearing on screen. Scrolling is very jerky with pauses in all browsers and offline as well. Any program or picture that is opened also opens in stages (jerks) instead of all at once. Microsoft saves all drivers are up to date.

I'm running windows 7.

Hi,My computer has been irritating me for months with laggy typing, when I close programs they do not disappear from the bottom bar quickly, when I try to play Spider Solitaire, the cards deal and move jerkily.I scan with NOD32 daily (NOD32 is updated daily). I used to run a paid up version of Counter Spy but have removed it because I don't like the program. I also run a paid up version of The Ultimate Trouble Shooter (like SiSoft Sandra) but can discern nothing in the process descriptions that looks out of place.I followed the Hijackthis routine to the letter and saved the log which I am posting. I didn't post it at the time as I have never used a forum before and got a little nervous about it all....*sigh*After I did the Grinler/Hijackthis routine, the computer ran well but now it has gone bad again so I have to do something to preserve my sanity.I did install Zone Alarm but have not used it for a couple of weeks as I never seem to be able to manage personal firewalls very well. While I was running Zone Alarm the computer was fine and now it is not so I guess that tells me something.Anyway, this is my HijackThis log file from a couple of weeks ago. I have compared all the numbers to the numbers in the HijackThis tutorial and cannot see anything suspicious. Maybe somebody else can help.

I searched the forum for answers to my problem and came up with some things to check so here is my information. Mouse at times moves jerkily or not at all and then after the system appears to catch up, the mouse returns to normal. Task manager only shows a single item using CPU but it is using up to 99% most of the time. The item is "MaxBackServiceInt.exe". What is it? Can I disable it? I have a long list of other items listed but all of them indicate no CPU usage. Performance page shows my CPU at 100%.
Help please and thanks. Oh yeah, running Pentium 4, 2.52 GHz, 768 MB RAM. I have fooled around with virtual memory and currently have it set at recommended levels (1150MB initial and 2302 MB Max) for both my 60 GB Drive C and 100 GB Drive D.

I am trying to watch the Jay Leno show from NBC and the streaming is extremely slow often producing 20 seconds then stopped for almost a minute. Running xp pro 64bit with 4GB ram and 512MB graphics card. My broadband is about 6MBits and most things run very fast. I have reduced hardware acceleration to zero and have nothing else running in the back except virus and firewall. Does anyone have any suggestions for speeding things up?

Hi, perhaps you need more RAM, 512Mb is not terribly expensive these days. Just a thought. Cheers.

I have a Dell Mini 9 that I upgraded with a 120 gig solid state harddrive and a 2 gig RAM. I installed Windows 7 professional and now I have jerky and slow computer response and video playback. I don't know how to diagnosis the problem to know how to fix it.
 

Answer:Slow & Jerky Playback

Hi,
1)Win7 Pro. takes a lot of resources , 3GB Ram would be better, if you cannot upgrade further, if you have a Spare SD card of at Least 4GB (6 or more would be better) you could try using as a Readyboost, should help a bit
2)McAfee although good, takes up a Lot of Resources, you could try the Free Microsoft Security Essentials 2 (Released in December of 2010), it is rated very high and eats Way Less resources.

3)Try also checking your Start up programs , go to Msconfig/Startup tab and see what you can safely eliminate from starting up.

4)If you do try MSE instead of McAfee, make sure to properly remove McAfee first

Good luck and have a Happy New Year

Hi all, this is my first post here! I hope the info I provide is all that is needed to help with my problem.

I am having problems with running Doom 3. I'm not sure of the correct term but it is not running smoothly. When moving around it is very jerky and slow. Even on the intro movie it is like that. This happens even with the quality set to the lowest in the game options. I installed the latest driver for my graphics card just yesterday (23.08.04) and it made it a little better but still pretty slow and jerky.

I am dying to get into it but am afraid that when the screen gets too busy with monsters it will crash seeing how its not performing well already when I'm only at the start and there's nothing else moving.

What changes can I make to any settings to improve greatly on this? Any advice will be much appreciated!

By the way, I read in other threads 'xxFPS'. What is that?

My system is as follows:
P4 3.0Ghz / 512M RAM / ATI Radeon 9200SE (128M RAM) / is this all the info you need?!
 

Answer:Doom 3 - very slow and jerky

it's youre 9200se that's causing the really slow framerates (aka jerkiness). you'll want to get a better video card to make the graphics smoother. as for the xx fps thing, fps stands for frames per second. that's how many still images you see in one second that makes the video. 18 fps is the threshold of smoothness for a human. 24fps is the framerate for movie theaters, 25 for pal (international standard video) and 29.97 for us standard ntsc. you'll want something at least 30 fps for your video.

My new laptop with Microsoft 7 will not play videos properly either online or downloaded.  I am on dial-up, but even videos I have downloaded are not worth watching.  The graphics move a few seconds, stop, go again, stop, etc. etc.  Do I need Flash or some other driver component to correct this?  Suggestions welcomed!Bill.

Answer:Slow & Jerky Videos on MS 7

Hi wilmsp,1. what is model & manufacturer of your new laptop?2. what is model of your graphics card or graphics chip on your laptop (if you know or can find out)3. have you install latest drivers for your graphics card or chip?4. what kind of video are you trying to watch? High Definition video or regular standard quality video? If the graphics are playing back on your laptop as if you're in serious traffic jam may mean that your graphics card may not be able to handle it .... don't now know if that's the case, just a thought.

I just posted a similar thread under Windows Media Center concerning the playback of recorded TV video. I triple boot Windows XP Pro 32 bit, Vista Home Premium 64 bit and now Windows 7 RC1 (build 7100). I have experimented with different graphics cards and different drivers. In Windows XP my playback is without fault. In Vista & Win 7 it jerks.
I also noticed today that an executable slide show had the same symptoms. Then I went to a folder with just pictures in it and tried to view them using the default Windows 7 picture viewer, and it was *way* slow loading each picture, showing the "loading" icon on each picture before it finally came up. I then booted back into XP and brought up the same folder in Windows Picture & Fax viewer. In XP you can thumb from one picture to the next almost immediately. These are 1.5 to 2 Mb files direct off my digital camera. Vista and Windows 7 display the same sluggishness. My Vista install was originally 32 bit. It was slow too.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

Answer:Slow and Jerky Graphics

OK. I just downloaded the latest 64 bit NVidia drivers for Windows 7 and installed them. That *seems* to have taken care of the photo viewer problem. However, video playback is still jerky. No change noticed there at all. So far I've tried Media Player Classic, Windows Media Player, and GOM. They all act identical.

Answer:Slow Computer... Jerky Mouse

Looks clean. Let's check one thing, and if that looks good, I will suggest you use the Startup Database here at BC to stop some of those programs running automatically at startup. You have a tremendous amount of programs automatically starting and that can seriously reduce the performance of your computer. Info on how to use the Startup Database can be found here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/33012/how-to-use-the-startup-database/Now, Download this tool to your desktop:http://www.uploads.ejvindh.net/rootchk.exeRun the program. After a short time a logfile will turn up. Copy the contents of the log into the thread.Notice: Some security-programs prevent the creation of dummy drivers with certain names. This may cause false positives. If the log of rootchk contains a lot of hidden drivers, you may want to turn of your security programs while rootchk is scanning (you should then unhook your network connection as well)

Hi - I posted a hijack log under the same Topic Title a few days ago. The person who looked at it said I was clean and suggested I reduce the startup programs. I did this but still the problem persists. I have been watching the talk manager while running my browser (avant browser). I notice that when the computer is idel and using very little CPU and the browser is open every 30 seconds or so there is a "spike" up to 100%. On further investigation I discoverd that another avant.exe appeared briefly alongside the one showing. It then disappeared and the CPU usage returned to normal. When I am quicck I can end the process f this second avan.exe and it disappears but my browser remains open. Any suggestions as to what it might be and how to track it down? Thanks

Answer:Slow Computer...jerky Mouse

If your computer seems to be slow, read Slow Computer/Browser? Check here first; it may not be malware. There are reasons for slowness besides malware - i.e. disk fragmentation, disk errors, corrupt system files, too many startup programs, unnecessary services running, not enough RAM, dirty hardware components, etc. As your system gets older it becomes filled with more files/programs and has a natural tendency to slow down so cleaning and regular maintenance is essential.You can download and use Process Explorer or Glarysoft Process Manager to investigate all running processes and gather additional information to identify and resolve problems. These tools will show the process CPU usage, a description and its path location. If you right-click on the file in question and select properties, you will see more details about the file. The Process Explorer window shows two panes by default: the upper pane is always a process list and the bottom pane either shows the list of DLLs loaded into the process selected in the upper pane, or the list of operating system resource handles (files, Registry keys, synchronization objects) the process has open. In the menu at the top select View > Lower Pane View to change between DLLs and Handles.

Any ideas of what I can look into on my computer to see what's slowing it down so badly? I haven't installed any new programs in quite some time. I have 8.1. I've been trying to look at services and startup to see if there is something strange but can't find anything. One weird thing I noticed tonight is when I open chrome, in task manager, services it shows 10 instances of chrome when I only have the one window (no other tabs) open. What? I'm at a loss and this jerky internet is driving me mad, can't get a good score on bejewled blitz on facebook, lol!

Answer:Performance verrry slow, jerky

I would recommend to get rid of Chrome, and switch to Firefox

Mozilla Firefox Web Browser — Download Firefox in your language — Mozilla - Offline Installation file . . . https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/?q=english

I did that, because Chrome would log me in every time, even if I didn't want to. Besides that making it slow, I felt like a tracked animal.

In my experience, slowness is due to the thing:
1.) downloading updates
2.) auto-aupdates
3.) anti-virus is running a QuickScan
4.) it's auto-defragging, but that stops, once is sees you are doing something

Hello it's me again,

Been awhile since I've last visited this site as I haven't had any major problems with my PC for some time now. Unfourchantly I'm not so lucky this time, my PC seems to be running really slow and jerky lately. I tried System Restore but it seems no matter what date I choose it keeps saying something along the lines of: "System Restore could not restore your computer to the specified time."

I've been going over it with my Father(who builds and programs PCs as a hobby) he can't seem to figure out whats wrong with it either but he says it might be a virus on the count that I used to download alot until my PC started acting-up. I'm thinking something in the hardware might be losing power because my PC can't seem to handle doing more than two things at once anymore without getting really really slow to the point of, alot of times, freezing.

If anyone could please respond to this whenever you have the time I would really apreciate it.

Thank you for your time and have a nice day,


PS: Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that some time ago I may have 'accidently' deleted some 'core' files that were only recently restored. I don't know if this helps or not, but I'd liked to know if it's best that I start from scratch again(which I'm totally cool with) or something.

My mouse is jerky and hard to control when I move it down an Internet
Explorer screen of links (i.e. a list of results in google). The
cursor switches from the arrow (pointer) to the hand/finger (to click
a link) then back to the arrow when I go down the screen. At these
times, the movements become slow and almost erratic. Anywhere else
in the screen, movement is smooth.

What could be happening. All other apps ok.

I have since reinstalled an early version of zone alarm, but had to delete spybot because my pc just totally locked up with it enabled. Well at least I am on line now. Can anybody tell me if this hijack log looks ok?

Hi All

I moved my desktop PC to another room the other day, it was running fine prior to the move. But now I`ve just reconnected everything and started using it i`m getting really bad performance when doing cpu intensive tasks. Ie the mouse, keyboard (typing) is really slow and jerky when the cpu is near 100% use. It never did this before.
I tried moving the mouse and keyboard to different usb ports but it still the same.

Any ideas what could have happened?

Thanks alot

Paul

Hi,

This problem relates to my wireless mouse.

Every so often while using my mouse the mouse becomes really laggy, slow and jerky. This lasts for about 15 seconds before things go back to normal again. It's as if the PC is processing something with is memory intensive for that period of time.
Does anyone know what is happening here and how I could diagnose/resolve the problem.

Regards,

C h r e d g e.
 

Answer:Laggy, slow and jerky wireless mouse

Try keeping a Task Manager window open to see which program is using the most CPU. I don't think it is a memory issue. You can sort the Processes tab by CPU usage, just click on the column header.

Answer:All Internet browsers sickening slow jerky and I NEED HELP.

Generally, if you have a program that you didn't intentionally install, and it's telling you there's 1000's of errors, it's most likely lying to you.
If you'd like to solve the problem for "free", there several great applications on this website to attempt to do just that.  From the download section, I'd grab AdwCleaner, and Malwarebytes Anti-rootkit. These two have generally served me well in the past and continue to do so in the present. Sometimes the biggest challenge has been getting to a point where the computer will allow the files to be downloaded.  You may get redirected, or have files download that you don't intend. Pay attention to the file dialog when you're getting the files. They are not named with a generic "setup.exe", so if you get prompt to save or run "setup.exe", you've been directed elsewhere, and are probabaly just getting more malware.

I just upgraded memory from 8 GB to 16 GB in Windows 7 Home Premium. Now the mouse is hard to aim, is slow to respond and jumpy. I read somewhere along the way about setting the BIOS settings differently to synch with new sticks but assumed I had nothing

Hello there members ,

I'm working on my mom's computer again. Last time I was here it had a bunch of viruses, and the good folks here helped a lot to get it functional again. It does not have a virus now, nor malware, but it is extremely slow. Trying to play music from Internet stations or watch youtube videos online is impossible, and overall it feels sluggish.

The Windows Task Manager shows CPU usage pretty low at 4% or so. 71 processes running which doesn't seem high to me. I see System Idle Process, CPU at 99? Not sure that's it though. There's probably about 55% or so available on the C disk drive. I'm about to defrag it and see if that fixes anything, but I'm pretty doubtful.

I've run all the usual anti-spyware (Spybot + Malware bytes), and anti-virus (Avira) but that hasn't helped a thing. What are some things I can do to troubleshoot?

BTW it's Windows XP on this machine. Any assistance is most appreciated

Answer:Slow Computer - Herky / Jerky Streaming Audio Video

Did you used to have the problem before your malware issues? Playing audio and video online could simply be an issue with your Internet connection. When you say playing is impossible, what does that mean, nothing comes out, stuttering.... Have you measured your upload and download speed? Speedtest is fine, if you avoid hitting the ads.What sort of things are sluggish? Page changes, mouse movements, programs starting up.........The System Idle process being 99 means it's not very busy! 71 processes does seem a bit high but these days every man and his dog wants to run a service on your PC. Mine are currently 54. I would have thought that during your malware removal exercise, others in this forum would have indicated what programs and services do not need to be running.

Hello Techspot!!!!

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

Many Thanks

Dan

Don't really want to reformat as PC has some specialist Progs. loaded. It is a Dell Inspiron laptop which has a a Intel (R)M 1.7Ghz processor and a 50gb HD with 16gb data on. It had half a Gb of Ram and I have upgraded to 2Gb. I have run AVG, Superantispyware, Malwarebytes, CCleaner, Adaware and they have all found bits and bobs which I have cleaned and then run diskclean and defrag. Although better, I still think it's running like a dog. Any ideas to improve? Would a Hijack this report be of value?

My PC has become incredibly slow, It is older and running win98. I have used adaware, spybot, spysweeper, Panda, Norton....you name it, but can't seem to solve the performnce issues.
I am attaching a HiJack This log, hopefully I can get some help to interpret it. I am not sure what to remove and what not to.
The boot up seems to be very long as well, I know running Norton doesn't help the speed. As it boots it shows all these lines of data from the Config.sys and the Autoexec.bat tabs from the MSconfig. Do I need all these things?
The Pc was good speed until a couple months ago, I added no programs yet it started to slow down and it is worse now, so I think I must have picked up a bug or something.

comp isnt overheating either, I'm all outta ideas, could some bit of hardware not be perfoming right or sommit?

Any ideas anyone. ive also defragged and virus scanned with latest updates, and i close all background programs down.

Answer:Still cant solve game slow down

Is it just games that slow down on your computer? It sounds like you might have a virus on your computer. Even though you have all the latest updates it could still be hiding on your computer. Sometimes it helps to do an online scan.

I have two desktop computers both running windows 7 and both connected to the internet wirelessly using the same Asus wireless router. The one PC runs just great and the other takes forever (15-20 seconds) to bring up a web page. When I use "Speedtest.net" to measure download speed the one gets 45-55 Mb/sec and the other will not even run let alone report a speed.
 
I run System Mechanic Pro on both as well as MalwareBytes and CCleaner now and then. The PC with the problem has always performed wonderfully until about a week ago. I have tried Firefox, IE, and Chrome but the results are the same for all browsers. I have also connected to the router directly with CAT 5 and it makes no difference. I have no idea what has caused this nor do I know what to do to fix it.
 
I would really appreciate having help in performing further troubleshooting and getting this machine back to normal.
 
Thanks,
 
Mike

Answer:Please help solve my browser problem.... slow....!!!!

If possible, try plugging the computer directly in to the router to rule out the wifi card as a problem. 
 
In Internet Explorer, go into Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings. If anything in there is checked, uncheck it.
 
To test connectivity, go into Command Prompt (Start -> Run -> cmd.exe) and type: ping google.com
See what kind of ping times you get. You should probably be getting under 30ms pings.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:Need a program to help solve slow boot

quick boot enabled in the bios?

is it that actual windows load-up that's taking forever?

start>run>msconfig, then startup tab.. that shows most, if not all the programs that load when windows is started. I've found that disabling as many as possible can speed up the process immensely.

Hi All,

I am trying to trace and fix a problem with very slow folder browsing on Vista ( both 32-bit and 64-bit ). My application uses SHBrowseForFolder to display a standard folder browse dialog. My browsing is plenty fast enough unless I browse to a folder with one or more subfolders containing lots of files.

For a concrete example, consider the following path ( D:\Images\Source1\Files ). D:\Images\Source1 has an Info subfolder that contains < 10 text files and a Files subfolder that contains 50,000 image files. In my application, selecting the D: drive is fine and selecting the Images folder is fine. Since I want to eventually select the Files folder, I must expand the Source1 folder. On my XP test machine, this returns immediately with the two subfolders. There is a 90-second delay on my Vista machine before I can see and select the subfolder.

I have noticed that there is some information cached during this process because it is much faster a second time, even after a reboot.

Does anyone have a suggestion about a system setting that can be modified to fix this problem? I have already modified the Folder options to always show icons, and not thumbnails.

Thanks,
Wayne

Question: Slow scrolling?

When there is also a lot of graphics intense pages open, scrolling via scroll wheel or touchpad is also very sluggish. It takes long time to scroll down, but using scroll bars, it is very good. Is that graphics related? Does it have to redraw differently when you use the scroll bar vs the scroll wheel/auto scroll?

Answer:Slow scrolling?

Depending on the web browser in question (you didn't say)
It could be that you simply need to enable smooth scrolling in the advanced browser options.

Question: Slow scrolling

Hello all,

I am new at these forums but I have a question. I have two computers here that are scrolling very, very slowing. Everything, IE6, Outlook, Word and Excel, everything that scrolls (not sure if other, non-MS programs do, it seems to be all). I have both hjt logs here. If anyone can help that would be fantastic!!! Thanks in advance!

Question: IE Slow Scrolling

A few weeks ago internet explorer became very slow. Scrolling on sites like ebay is almost impossible. Even typing this takes forever. I downloaded and ran Ad-aware, Spybot and antivir. Ad-aware found and removed 84 items but the problem remains. I downloaded Hijack This with the hope that someone would identify my problem. The file seems much shorter than some others. I'm lost as to how to interpret though. Any help would be appreciated.

A friend of mine has reported a problem whereby his computer is very sluggish when scrolling a web page, I believe, using the scroll wheel.

All used to be OK until about a month ago when he started experienceing this problem. Has anyone any experience of anything of this type? Is there any sort of 'mal-ware' which you've come across which might do this?

He's running Windows ME and connecting via AOL usinf Internet Explorer on a machine which is about 3 years old. It doesn't seem to be site related and as yet I've not determined whether this happens on web pages stored locally on his machine or only when he's actually connected. Nor have I yet checked whether this also happens in Netscape.

Question: Fx: Slow Scrolling

Hello,

I just reinstalled XP and now, in Fx, when I scroll it moves very slowly. Also, when I scroll down, you can see the page "refreshing" from top to bottom and when scrolling up, you can see it "refreshing" from bottom to top. Also, I have smooth scrolling enabled and the only way it scrolls normally is if I autoscroll (center-click) on the edges of the page.

Thanks
fj1.

Answer:Slow Scrolling

1 - ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates
2 - visit the Dell Support website and update the drivers for your system.
In particular, ensure you update the chipset, storage and video drivers
Also update any drivers that have been released since 13 Oct 2013 (the release date of Win8.1)
This includes updating the BIOS/UEFI

I have a Gigabyte GA-K8NS Pro motherboard, AMD -64 processor, 1 gig ram, and a NVIDIA GeForce2 MX200. I have WIN XP PRO x64 installed on my computer.

I am having problems with web pages (on both IE and Firefox web browsers) and windows explorer, the refresh rate is really low and it takes a while to scroll down as a result. I dont know how else to explain it. It slowly refreshes from top to bottom every time the page is scrolled down. On my much slower computer, when I scroll down, it is smooth with no slow refresh. Why is it going so slow on the much faster computer?

Answer:Help on Scrolling, going slow.

Hello,

Question: Slow Scrolling

Since I reloaded the operating system all scrolling is done very slowly and at what looks 8-10 line increments. I can't find an adjustment to change this.
 

Answer:Slow Scrolling

Load up the Mouse control panel, click on the Wheel tab and change number of lines to scroll at a time.

Just installed a new HDD with XP and all other software, (old HDD died) Everything works ok except for the scrolling up/down and across screens.When grabbing the scroll bars or using mouse wheel instead of moving quickly through pages I get a kind of "curtain" effect, screens seem to refresh constantly and move a piece at a time,this makes it very difficult to get on the precise area wanted.When using wheel they move line by line and if wheel is turned too much pages start scrolling very slow and then suddently jump to either beginning or end.This only happens since re-install, have tried mouse settings, no changes at all.Any ideas?

Answer:Scrolling very slow

Could be an issue with MOBO chipset drivers or VGA card drivers, updating may help...

What is going on here? I just had Comcast come out and they fixed the internet problem I was having. They gave me a SMC USB that my Ethernet cable plugs into. Internet is working fine, but when I scroll, it becomes slow motion. The mouse is slow motion and the scrolling is slow motion. The web pages are found quickly, so it's not like the whole system is slow. If it matters SVCHOST.exe in the task manager is taking up 38,000K which might mean something? The computer seems to be running at normal speed, but this whole slow motion thing is really getting to me. IT ONLY HAPPENS WHEN I SCROLL. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Hi there,
I have spent days and days on this problem and am hoping someone out there can help me. I have an Epson Workforce 600 network printer, connected wirelessly to my home network. Signal is extremely strong. Computer #1, which is XP, is having no problems using the printer normally. Computer #2, which is XP Media Center edition, can print to the printer, but it is very very slow. If I go into printer properties, it literally takes about 30 seconds for the printer properties screen to pop up on the screen.

I was hoping this Hotfix would solve it, but it did not. Here it is:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/970048

Here are the things I've tried on computer #2:

1. Uninstalled and reinstalled all the drivers, rebooting each time, many times.
2. Went into printer properties, then ports, and selected "RAW" vs "LPR" under port configuration.
3. Created a new user profile on computer #2, did not help.
4. Deleted all unused/old printers.
5. Manually added the printer using Epsonnet printer port.
6. Tried "sharing" the printer from computer #1, adding it to my printers on computer #2, still same problem.
7. Updated all drivers from Dell's website for the computer, windows update is current.
8. Full virus/spy scan with Kaspersky and Malwarebytes.
9. Deleted all printers, rebooted, added back again.
10. Cursed at computer.

Microsoft Word times out waiting for the printer so it's more than just an annoyance - I don't have acces... Read more

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL

and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.
