Slow computer, slow internet connection.

Question: Slow computer, slow internet connection.

I have recently installed the service pack 1 for windows vista, which caused the computer to shut down without warning, and not start back up without a system restore. My computer is going really slow, the internet connection(with dsl) is only averaging about 70 kb/sec... I am not sure if i have a virus or anything but any help is appreciated. Thank you, here is my system scanner, I followed all the steps before posting =] thank you

Preferred Solution: Slow computer, slow internet connection.

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 computer, slow internet connection.

B.U.M.P help anyone please?

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

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

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

Thanks for your time!

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

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

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

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

Hello I have a HP w1907v with a slow internet.

Here are my computer details:

OS Version: Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium, Service Pack 2, 64 bit
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) 8450 Triple-Core Processor, AMD64 Family 16 Model 2 Stepping 3
Processor Count: 3

I go on Command Prompt and type in 'ping <my ip> -t' and my ping is quite low. However when I go to something like YouTube, my ping goes super high! It jumps up to 1000. Also when I go on any website at all, my ping goes super high. It happens mainly on websites which have flash on it. I have a Belkin F6D4050 Enhanced Wireless USB Adapter. I thought it was the USB but it wasn't, because when I put the USB into another computer, the internet was fine. The ping didn't skyrocket or anything. It was constantly low. I don't think it's my modem because it's quite near me. So what could the problem be?
 

Answer:Slow Internet Connection on a Computer

Have you tried defragmenting your computer? Sometimes after you've been on the web deleted or downloaded files it creates not just one file but several. This you can fix by defragmenting. Defragmenting takes those files and puts them back together therefore letting your computer run faster.
Go to start, All programs, Accessories, System tools, Disc defragment. From there Click defrag and depending on the fragments it will take 30 min to and hour. Also try disc clean up.

Let me preface this question by saying we have a one-year-old Acer (4 GB ram, 3.10 Ghz processor) hooked up to our Uverse router box (is that what it's called - a router?), and the internet speed is FAST.

We have a second older computer (Dell Dimension 4500S, 1 GB ram, 1.8 GHz processor), hooked up to this same router box via a Cat5 cable. BUT, the internet connection speed is SLOW. Why?

Now, I know that 1 GB RAM should be sufficient, right?

I've ran all the recommend scans & have all the recommended security software on this older computer, and I'm 99.99% sure that there is no malware or virus on this computer.

When we don't have the internet open, the computer runs really fast...it's a good computer....just the internet is slow. Is it something with the computer, or could it be a bad or too long cat5 cable? We tried both a 50 foot and a 30 foot cable, and there was no difference in speed. Could it be a low quality cable?
 

Answer:Slow internet connection on 2nd computer

Couple of things you can try.
Using the same cable, are there other ports available on the router that you can hook into?
Have you tried updating the drivers for your network adapter?
If you hook up only the older computer, is the speed the same?
Can you reboot and hit the F8 key to boot into Safe Mode with Networking, is the speed the same?
Have you tried a different browser, for example Firefox instead of IE?
Is your computer all up to date on it's Windows patches?

Hi, I am attempting to help my sister figure out what is wrong with her computer. Being her computer, I have very little details about when this started happening, possibilities for why or anything like that. What I know at this point is that it does not connect to the internet in the house, while other devices have no issues at all. I also know that the computer runs extremely slow (maybe 2-3 minutes to load something as simple as the volume control panel.) Her machine is a HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop running Windows Vista, and utilizes a wifi hotspot from Sprint as her internet. I have run AVG Virus scans in safe mode several times but I don't believe her virus definitions are updated due to lack of internet connection. Any help would be appreciated as to finding the issue. Thank You in advance.

Answer:No Internet Connection/Slow Computer

Some Fake AV's change the connection setting to proxy. If you haven't already checked, go to tools>internet options>connections>LAN settings and make certain that use proxy is unchecked.

If you have a flash drive, you could try the Superantispyware portable version or the Emsisoft formerly A-Squared. Download onto the flash, plug into a USB port and scan.

I have a couple of desktop computers connected to the same router (all of them wired) one of them started to have problems a couple of days ago, the connection was painfully slow but i noticed when i searched something in Google I got spam ads, so I found malaware and got rid of it.

The computer is clean now but i still have the problem with the connection to the internet while the other computers average a connection of 84Mps DL and 35Mps UL, this other one has 0.23Mps DL and 0.23Mps UL.

I repaired/re-installed the network adapter drivers and that helped put the computer back to 84-35 speeds; however, every time the computer is rebooted The slow connection reappears.

Any of you guys have any idea of what is going on???

I can leave the computer in standby for now I guess because re-installing driver every time is not going to cut it.

MOBO: Gigabyte Z77X-UP4 TH
Network adapter: Realtek RTL8168/5111

Thank you

Answer:Slow internet connection in one computer only.

Hi,

This type of issue could occur due to IP conflict. As you mentioned that all the PCs are connected via wire. Try to run the affected PC via Wifi (If that is available on your PC and router). Else, try to run the affected PC without assigning IP to it. Change the setting to "Obtain an IP address automatically".

Keep us posted.

I'm on my girlfriend's computer, trying to figure out what's wrong with mine. About a month ago one of my internet browser's stopped working, so I just switched to another one, then that stopped, so I switched to another one, and then that stopped, so I switched to another...Finally, none of them are working and now it's saying that between my computer and the wireless there is limited access, and between the wireless and the Internet, there's a red X, so no network access. My girlfriend's computer connects to the internet, however, as do two other tablet devices we have, so I'm assuming my computer has some sort of virus. It would be very hard for me to transfer logs back and forth on to this site, like we did when we cleaned up this computer(my girlfriend's) on this website, so I'm not really sure how to go about doing this, other than asking for some links to programs that I can move to my computer that will get my internet working again so I can go through the process of all the other programs and the logs that will clean up everything. Or maybe there's some basic clean up programs I should run first? Not sure, help please! Thanks.

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

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

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

We have Verizon LTE home internet.
My husband and I have virtually identical computers with similar wireless cards installed. They are both Dell Optiplex desktops running Windows 10 that was upgraded from Windows 7.
He is getting up to 18.3 mbps download and 6.25 mbps upload.
I am getting only 7.57 mbps download and 5.00 mbps upload.
The router is located 3 rooms away from each computer.
Previously, I had better speed on my computer, but there was an issue with the router and Verizon moved it, necessitating that my husband needed a wireless card for his computer. I proceeded to take the one out of my computer and put it in his and purchased a new one for me.
I would appreciate any help.
Thank you.

Hi, Everyone.

Im having trouble keeping internet connection... I will make this as easy to read as possible... and i thank you very much in advance for any help you can give!

I have a 3 month old Sony VAIO pc.


I have norton anti virus, spysweeper, adware SE, hijack this, and crapcleaner.

I update all of these quite often.


About 2 weeks ago i noticed my computer slowing down (right clicking, etc).

Then my internet connection started cutting out every once in a while... I have cable internet from Time Warner (Road Runner)...

The cable light will start blinking rapidly, the data light will completely shutoff... and the power and PC lights stay on... This goes on for about a minute, then i get internet connection back.

This happens about 1-4 times every hour, and gets extremely annoying.


Ive ran all of my spyware, antivirus, crapcleaner programs many times... Ive tried running them in safe mode... ive reset my modem...


I have no idea whats up.


One day while running Norton it picked up a trojan called "Trojan.moo"... but couldnt fix or delete it... Everytime i run norton now, it doesnt show it, but i dont think it ever got fixed. Im wondering if this is why im losing connection?

Sorry for the very long post.

Thank you!
 

Answer:Losing Internet Connection, Slow Computer

Welcome to MajorGeeks!

I have cable internet also, only by Charter and not Comcast. The problem that you describe sounds like a provider issue. I have ran into this in the past and can't give a good answer for fixing it, although others may! I have always just reset my modem and my switch.

I am having a great deal of problems with my computer running slow, cpu maxing out and continuous IE errors and shut downs (of IE). I've attached a hijack log and would appreciate any help anyone can offer.

Yesterday I rebooted to safeboot and ran SDFIX, Malwarebytes, ARO, Microsoft Safety Scanner, Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool and PC_Cleaner_Pro. Basically every cleaning tool I have loaded. Not sure if I'm just running too many things.

My Antivirus tool is McAfee.

I mostly use my computer for email, facebook and facebook games. I have a lot of problems with games either not loading or locking up and shutting down IE all together.

Attached is my hijack log.

My computer has been running very slow and has trouble staying connected to the internet. This started after I followed the advice in the Virus/Trojan/Spyware sticked thread, "Is Your PC Running Slow?" I deleted temporary files and then used Spybot Search & Destroy to get rid of tracking cookies.

As for the internet (wifi), every minute or so, it will look like it's connecting, saying it's "acquiring network address" and then it will reconnect. I don't think it's my modem because the lights all look fine and I can connect without problems using my netbook and my smartphone, also using wifi.

Answer:Computer slow & trouble with internet connection

Do a system restore to a time before you deleted the temp files.

I believe my problems all started when my wife tried to open a video sent to her by a friend on Facebook. My computer is dragging and my internet connection is inconsistent. I'm receiving an SVCHOST.EXE error refrencing "0XFFBADD11". On my wife's sign on there is no internet connection, which I've tried to repair the connection. The internet connection list won't pull up on her sign on. I also keep getting notices from Spybot of registry changes.

So far I've run CCleaner to work on my registry, Desktop Doctor, Comcasts version of McAfee, Spybot, Windows Defender, and AdAware. AdAware is the only one that found anything and I quarantined it. Since then my ability to access the internet has improved on my sign on. I just downloaded HiJackTHis and below is a copy of my results.

Can someone please tell me what my problem is and what I can do to fix it?

Thanks,
Will

I have slow/no internet and it seems to be only an issue for my main computer, as the several wireless/wired devices I have have no problem streaming/connecting to the internet.

I have done several scans using SuperAntiSpyware, Spybot, Malaware Bytes, and even the Microsoft scanner. I did this both on Normal and Safe Mode.

When I hard wire my computer directly to the modem, I don't seem to have an issue. When I watch videos/stream from a laptop or an iPad, I also don't have an issue.

I have Windows 7 64-bit computer with an ASUS RT-AC66U router and a cable modem. I've tried switching the physical ports on my router, but that doesn't seem to fix the problem.

I've tried ipconfig /release and /renew, and that doesn't seem to work either. Sometimes if I reset my computer, the issue seems to get fixed, but will eventually will be super slow again.

Any ideas on what to do?
 

Answer:Internet Slow on Computer (Wired Connection)

It seems to happen when another computer or laptop is streaming/playing a game.

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

Do a speed check

Any recent hardware/software changes?

Is this cable or DSL?

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

My computer is the only one in the house hard wired to the router. After we had to buy a new router, I started having trouble. The biggest problem is that my internet connection keeps getting dropped and it is impossible to stay connected to attach pictures, watch videos, or listen to music. As time has gone on my start up time has increased, but this could be because I have trouble downloading updates. I have run the malware removal programs,but I can only find 2 of the logs. Help!
 

Answer:Computer loads slow and drops internet connection.

Welcome to Major Geeks!

I need the logs from Hitman Pro and Malwarebytes. Per your other logs in MGlogs.zip, it seems you did not run the scans and save the logs per the instructions. Please run these scans and attach the logs. Follow the instructions given for running them in Step 2 of the below link

Windows XP Malware Removal/Cleaning Procedure

Your problems may not be due to malware. It may just be due to the below
Code:
Total Physical Memory 512.00 MB
Available Physical Memory 121.77 MB
which shows that you do not have enough memory to properly run Windows XP SP3 and everything else you are running. You need 6 times this which is 3 GB or at a minimum at least 2 GB

Hello All,

I'm new here and desperately in need of help. I'm no expert, but usually can figure out my own problems up until now.
I was tricked into clicking on a facebook link, and since then, my internet connection has been extremely slow.

I am running windows XP pro, SP3, with firefox 3.0.3, zone alarm free version.
All windows security patches for windows XP are currently up to date.

I have followed all the guidelines here and have tried everything I can do before posting.
I am using bitdefender antivirus, and definitions were updated -- scan showed no problems.
I have cleaned out everything using ccleaner, my drives are all defragmented, and have tried Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.30, spybot search & destroy, spyeraser, and scanned with mcaffe stinger with no luck--nothing found.

superantispyware did find a few things listed below, but now scans as clean, even though the problem still exists.

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you

Hi
I have got AOL platinum 2mb broadband and have had for about 6 months and all has owrked perfectly. I started to notice my internet speed was going from 400-500 kbs, but now it is going at 10-20kbs on ALL websites! I have tried to reboot my modem, i contacted AOL who gave me numerous things which didn't help, and i have waited for a while to see if it may have been just a lapse on AOL for the day

I also play many online games such as Call of Duty and Counter Strike; i got so annoyed with connection breaks and my 999 ping!

I run windows xp sp2, aol 9.0 and will post a HJT log just incase, but i think im spyware free. I only have 8% of HD space left, will that make any difference. I have a Binatone ASDL 2000 modem, and a Belkin router.

Answer:Internet connection suddenly slow on brand new computer

One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and Download and Execute filesI would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.Though the Trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of Trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?When Should I Format, How Should I ReinstallHowever, if you do not have the resources to reinstall your computer and would like me to attempt to clean it, I will be happy to do so.Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask.Please let us know what you have decided to do in your next post.

Answer:New 023 entries in Hijack log-symptoms: slow computer and internet connection

All those O23 entries are legitmate services and nothing to be concerned about. You may be thinking of an older version of Hijack This when you say you have never seen those before because the older versions did not show O23 entries.

I think our computer is stuffed up with conflicting programs and we also have an inexplicably slow internet connection. A while back we had a trojan and my husband downloaded various stuff to get rid of it but now isn't sure what he did. Google chrome hangs very easily, especially when we use Gmail so we are currently using Firefox.

I've put the Hijack file and 2 dds reports below, but the GMER app ran for several hours before crashing so I don't have that. Can try it again tonight - is it usual to take hours?

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi!
I have been having a major issue with my internet.

I will try to provide as much information as possible.

First of all:
-I have cable internet, my ISP is Charter
-I have 2 Computers. 1 Laptop and 1 Desktop. And i have an old desktop computer.

Tech Specs.>

Laptop:XPS M1530, customized at www.dell.com than 2 months old
-Its OS is Windows Vista Home Premium
-Processor: Intel Core, 2 Duo, T8300 @ 2.4GHz
-RAM/Memory:4GB
-64 bit operating system
-500GB of Hardrive space

Desktop(new): Studio XPS 435MT
-Its OS is Windows Vista Home Premium
-Processor: Intel Core, i7 920 @2.67 GHz
-RAM/Memory:6GB
-64 bit operating system
-1TB of Hardrive Space(1000~GB)

Desktop(old)ell Dimension 8200
-Its OS is Windows XP
-Processor: N/A(i am somewhat unable to use the machine at the moment, thus we purchased new computers...)

Ok, so the problem. I am able to connect both the laptop and the desktop(new) to the internet through my modem and what not. However, during web browsing, online gaming(even the simplest of games that only require as little as a dial-up connection.), downloading, and updating. When im browsing the web, Internet Exploror and Mozilla Firefox say that they cannot display the webpage(the typical) Task manager reads out a 100Mbps network speed for "Local Area Connection.

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

Then, * Download Combofix to your desktop.Doubleclick combofix.exeFollow the prompts.Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.When finished and after reboot (in case it asks to reboot), combofix will open again to gather the necessary information for the log.

Hi there,

My computer has been running slow for few months now despite having a high speed internet connection. I have tried to fix it by having its set up changed. It didn't fix the problem. It was working fine but one day it suddenly started running slow. At first I thought it must be a problem with the servers of my network provider but that wasn't the case. I've called the cable company to check several times but they said other users were able to use internet in full speed without any problem. I noticed the problem by trying to watch videos from various websites and after this problem occurred, they started loading super, super slowly. It has gotten to a point that I can no longer watch TV shows, movies, and other videos. The only video website that works is YouTube and even that doesn't function completely normally. Only most YouTube videos work without getting stuck too much. Another thing which I must mention is that quite often the internet cuts off in midst of browsing sessions and it doesn't reconnect without restarting the computer. My computer is a Dell laptop pc with Intel core i5 processor. I suspect that maybe my LAN card has worn out and it needs to be replaced. Although, I have been told by some computer technicians to not to do so. But they weren't able to give me any solutions. So here are my questions:

1. Should I get my LAN card changed?
2. If I should get my LAN card replaced, what model do I need that's compatible w... Read more

Answer:Help! Slow Computer, Slow Internet. Slow, Slow, Slow!

Hi MaryJane,Sorry for the delay, this forum is really swamped right now. I don't see any positive signs of malware in your log, although there is one thing that I am unsure about. I'll get to that in a minute.Before we do rootkit scans and use some other tools to confirm that malware is not the problem, let's do a quick check of resources.Press <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<Del> to open Task Manager, then click on the Processes tab. Place a check next to Show processes from all users. Note the numbers at the bottom, CPU usage should be running at 0 to no more than five percent if your system is idle (no background tasks running). If that is not the case, scroll down and see if any of the processes is running at a high percentage of CPU usage. On a normal system at idle the System Idle Process should show about 98 percent, meaning nothing else is using the CPU. The next columns to the right, memory usage and peak memory usage, may also show something out of line if one process is using a large amount of memory. If you see anything showing high CPU usage or high Memory usage, make a note of it.Now, click the Performance tab. The key numbers here are in the Commit Charge box -- The Total and Peak figures; and in the Physical Memory box, the Total figure. Make a note of these three numbers. I would like to see them, but I can tell you what I'm looking for: basically, any time the Commit Charge exceeds the total physical memory, Windows will have to constantly swap d... Read more

 Hi The computer  that is slow is a desk top tower. In a home.  it is a E machine.
 it has windows 7  professional  with service pack 1
DO KNOW :  I am very new to windows 7 and all it's features. 
When I brought this computer home  last Nov. it was lightening fast at everything! so much better than  the windows XP  it replaced, I was thrilled.  yet Now starting in  April 2015  it is as slow  or slower  as my old Windows with XP ever was  ( and partially the reason for saving my  pennies to get this windows 7 computer)...and  now I'm upset. feeling  like I have been taken.
 
Computer displays the following :
3.8 windows experience index
Intel pentium dual 2.0Ghz  processor 
64 Bit
 
Has Ccleaner installed
has Comodo antivirus and Comodo cleaning essentials installed.
All virus scans  find no infections,  and report that all is well and protected.  ( B/C of the way the computer is operating i'm doubting that and betting there is an infections of some sort)
 
I Have run Comodo cleaning essentials and  results find no abnormalities or infections.
Have run TFC and JRT  and the computer shows no signs of improvement.
have run rKill  and it  finds  no abnormalities  or infections.
All virus scan results  find no infections.

Hi,
My laptop was recently the victim of some malware/virus and I can't figure out how to fix it. I've tried the suggested steps to clear it from my system, and have tried running a few anti virus programs while in safe mode. The Dr Web scanner indicated that there was some malware in my dell support system files, which I've attempted to delete . In the past few days, I've deleted some files that are supposedly incosequential (ie Dell connect, etc), but now I am wondering if I deleted a file I shouldn't have. I was going via the advice given on some other forums, regards the neccessity of some of these programs.

I have a Dell inspiron e1705 with Windows Vista (32 bit) .

Some of the symptoms of the problem include:
-no wireless intenet availability (says "the adapter is not connected") - never had a problem previously
- very slow with frequent freezes
-I do not see any obvious resource taken up the memory space in the Windows Task Manager log
-Occasionally, some random tmp files have appeared all of a sudden on my desktop.


Here is the HiJack log file:

Also, even if things appear to be running better, there is no guarantee that everything is finished. Please continue to check this forum post in order to ensure we get your system completely clean. We do not want to clean you part-way up, only to have the system re-infect itself. :)

Finally, please reply using the button in the lower left hand corner of your screen.

Hello, my computer has been extremely slow on boot and my desktop has been hijacked with a message about changing it to a website. I also have a program called "error fix" showing up on my desktop and I have no idea where it came from. I've run Malware Bytes twice on the computer with numerous problems found. After running it the second time, I got a message saying I needed to run CHKDSK which I ran. Also, my internet is running very slowly and I just got a message that says "A program on your computer has corrupted your default setting for Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer has reset this sietting to your original search provider, Live.Search (search.live.com). Internet will now open Search Settings, where you can change this setting or install more search providors."

This is my first time posting a question on bleeping computer. We are so thankful that you are out there to help us and not rip us off. I think my computer is infected. My desktop starts up very slowly, my internet connection is slow (it's slow in pulling up websites and some never come up). I'm getting lots of pop ups (even though pop up blocker is enabled). When I go to open the control panel, a flashlight pops up as if it is looking for it (it eventually does open but it takes a while). I had a problem at one time with a lot of POS.TMP files and followed advice from posts on this site to get rid of them. Well, my current problems started when a friend downloaded a music program. I believe it was called Soundman. When I noticed the computer acting funny, I went into the control panel and deleted it along with some other programs I found (PPC Booster, P2P Max, Ron Tool Adsoftinc, Wyzo, Eco Bar).

Hey, basically computer's been a bit slow and tried clearing some stuff and done other things, but still no luck, to make things worse internet's been a lot slow and when using either firefox and internet explorer. For example when going on youtube some videos would freeze in the middle and i would have to reload the page, and sometimes takes ages to load a page.

So here's my DDS log and hopefully the problem can be diagnosed, thank you.

Hey I recently bought a new computer that is much better than my old one in stats but its not acting like it.

Windows XP
Service Pack 3
Intel Dual Core E5200
2.50GHz
2GB RAM

Now it was running ok to begin with but then the internet started having problems. It kept dropping out or fluctuating in speed and nothing seemed to fix it. It didnt happen on my old system it sat nicely at 54MB/s all the time.

Then the rest of the computer started going slow to start up so i got rid of some start up programs and desktop items which didnt seem to do much. And now ive noticed that when songs are playing in itunes they skip seconds every now and then.

Also when i click for programs to come up after i wait till everything is started up properly i have to wait a minute or two before they open. And burning DVDs has doubled in how long it takes.

Any ideas of what could be wrong, ive scanned for viruses using Avira and spyware using SUPERantispyware, ive cleaned registry using Registry easy and removed all unnecesary crap using CCleaner.

It got suggested that my computer was going slow because of AVG8 so i got rid of it and with got Avira but it slowed up again.

I recently worked on a friends computer who was complaining about it running slow, slow internet connection etc etc. i ran Malwarebytes, spybot, had him update his antivirus (which he never did) and run a full scan. i also upgraded his ram and got rid of some unneeded startup programs. the ram helped performance, but i ran hijackthis just to see if anything was missed from the scans i did. here's the log:

Answer:slow computer slow connection

Welcome to Major Geeks!

If you want to properly check for malware then we cannot help you by just looking at HijackThis since it is not a good indicator of whether a PC is clean or not. If you want an answer to whether the below is clean, run the below cleaning process.


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

Please follow the instructions in the below link:

READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide
and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.

**** If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going. ****
Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not. MGtools will frequently run even when all other tools will not.
After completing the READ & RUN ME and attaching your logs, make sure that you tell us what problems still remain ( if any still do )!
Helpful Notes:

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

Starting your computer in Safe mode

If you have problems downloading on the problem PC, download the tools and the manual updates for SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes ( links are given in the READ & RUN ME) onto another PC and then burn to a CD. Then copy them to the problem PC. You will have to skip gettin... Read more

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

Ok I recently noticed that my computer is taking longer to load and also it lags when running programs. In addition, I noticed that my internet was slow. I use Yahoo DSL.

I defraged my hard drive with Auslogics Disk Defrag and it did not speed anything up. I did a adaware and spybot scan. And it did not help. So I decided to come here.

Following the steps, I ran an activescan and it found only 1 trojan that could explain my slow internet problem (hxxp://www.pandasecurity.com/homeusers/security-info/about-malware/encyclopedia/overview.aspx?idvirus=143883]). It was removed. I always had IE-SQUAD and Spyware blaster enabled and up to date. And I did my windows update. I am running Win XP SP2, not SP3, since there were a few things my computer cannot do that I need on SP3.

But my computer is still running slow and "locks up" briefly. If anyone can help, I would be very thankful. Thank you!

Hey Everyone,

First off I'm pretty new here I know..........

My problem is that my internet connection is pretty slow on my main computer. It's an older (6 years) Dell. I'm still running XP and IE7. I have Comcast cable and it's connected through a Linksys modem. The problem is that the internet response on this machine is pretty slow. I have a laptop that I use and that is much better. I would figure that my "main" computer would be faster since it has a hard connection, not wireless.

I know that isn't much info so ask away and I do what I can to provide all the info needed.

Thanks!!!!!!

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

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

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

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

Thank you.

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

Hi all

I am getting a very slow internet connection. Sometimes in the morning I get 6Mb/s, but more typicaly it's 0.1 Mb/s even when other machines on LAN connect at 4Mb/s


I have tried to be methodical about identifying root cause, but am now stumped

ISP

My other machines still connect at acceptable speeds.

Virus

My anti-virus software (Avast) is upto date and I have scanned the PC - All clean

Software

Have booted into safe mode, the problem still occurs.

Router

I have a Zyxel P600 with wireless. All of the other machines on my home LAN all run at 4+Mbs.

The router isn't Windows 7 certified. Does this make a difference? It always worked fine with Vista.

NIC

I have a intel(r) 82566dm-2 gigabit on-board connection, which I have updated to the latest driver from Intel.

There is some sort of problem here, because it keeps disconneting every 3 minutes or so, despite passing self tests. This may be the issue, however even if it doesn't drop for 5 minutes the slowness persists.

Windows Network

I get strange network map. Sometimes, it's Network1.png, which looks fine more usualy it's Network2.png, which looks like I connect using my Vista PC, which I don't. I've put this down to Microsoft oddness.

Any help very welcome

I've been suffering from a slow internet connect for the last 3-4 days I have Vista Home (Crappy OS) and the only programs I've installed within that time period is firefox (installed yesterday), the gimp (needed a better picture editor), yahoo messenger, and windows live messenger. Now at first I thought it was malware however after much time and effort (slow downloads) I updated and scanned with spyware, avast, and ad aware and found absolutly nothing. Now I'm wondering could it be a rootkit that I'm not seeing? Also my OS itself operates just fine with no slow down on the local machine.

I have a network with a number of computers all wired to a router. All of the computers except one have no problem loading web sites. That other computer will remain at the 'Waiting for www.whatever.com' stage for several minutes before finally loading the page. This occurs both with IE (6 and 7) and Firefox. No other computers are experiencing this problem.

I've scanned for spyware etc using Spybot and cleaned the registry with JV16 Powertools, but it has made no difference. Neither has defrag or freeing more disk space. This computer is running XP Pro SP2. Any suggestions would be welcome.

HI friends,

I am so frustrated! I live in a very small town where internet service choices are slim to none. One is Charter the other is Centurylink. Well I was with Charter and had all kinds of problems with them. Sorry if this hurts someoones feelings but it is true. So I switched over to Centurylink.Well I like the service of centurylink and wow my computer is more slow with their 1.5 then I had with Charter with just .1.0MBS.

So I contact Century link and so they have me run this test and I am not getting all of my 1.5 I am just getting 1.28. Hello! I at least had all of my 1.0MB.

Is this true, "Is cable Internet better then Ethernet"?

Or is there something I do not know about making the internet faster?

Thanks for any wisdom here.

Hello,

I have Windows XP operating system and I've had difficulties connecting to the internet.

I have Symantec Antivirus software. I ran a complete scan in safe mode, which found nothing. I also have spybot search and destroy and cc cleaner, and I ran both. I used to have AVG but removed it from my computer before installing Symantec...I think this is where the problem may originate. Either way, I can access my computer files fairly quickly. The problem is when I try to load internet pages...very, very slow.

I appreciate your help.

Thanks,
Monica

Answer:Slow Internet Connection

A slow browser is a common complaint with various causes and possible solutions. What works for one person may not work for another.If you are having trouble logging into a website or Internet Explorer is behaving oddly, you may need to clear your cookies and temporary Internet files (browser cache). As you browse web pages, the browser stores a copy of the pages you view on your local hard drive; this is called caching. Clearing the cache forces the browser to load the latest versions of Web pages and programs you visit."How to Clear Cookies and Cache in Internet Explorer 6""How to Clear Cookies and Cache in Internet Explorer 7""How and Why to Clear Your Cache"If your Internet connection is slow and your not finding any malware, see:Its not always malware: How to fix the top 10 Internet Explorer issues.Get to the bottom of a slow Internet connection.Troubleshoot A Slow Cable Modem.If your using Vista or Internet Explorer 7, see:"Why is my Internet connection so slow?"."Windows Vista - My Internet connection is slow"."Tuning IE7 for Better Performance"."Speedup Internet Explorer 7"."How to optimize or reset Internet Explorer 7".Also, the Phishing Filter could be causing your computer to respond very slowly as it evaluates Web page contents.

I have a new Microsoft Wired Router, new D Link Switch, and new Cat 5 cables. I have 6 computer connected to them. Some of the time when I try to connect to the internet it runs like a 14.4 modem. I have a 1.5Mbs cable connection. I know that cable speed depends on how many people are the same node and are online and that sharing slow down the connection, what I don't understand is why its still that slow when I am the only one on the network using the internet.

I have windows 2000 pro installed. Do you think this is a software confiuration problem or maybe a network problem?
 

Answer:Slow internet connection though LAN

Too many variables. If you're the only one actually using the Internet, my guess is you're having cable or ISP problems, not network issues. If you can connect to other machines at normal bandwidth, it's unlikely to be your problem.

I'm working on my sister's computer.....She has dsl and the connection is very slow, especially when she uses aol . So far I've run adaware, spybot, avast, cwshredder, stinger, cleanup40 and online scans by ewido (that fixed some problems), and by panda that found 10 infections, but wouldn't fix them. I've posted the logs below for three of them. How do you determine what can be deleted from the hijack this log and what shouldn't be?

I have this problem about my internet connection that i can't figure out what to do.

When I start Windows normally my internet connection is very slow and sometimes I can't even browse. But when I tried to start Windows in Safe Mode, the connection seems to be ok. Can you tell me what is the problem here?

I use the internet usually for browsing and torrent downloads and I have a McAfee Security Center installed. My OS is Windows XP Pro SP2.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Alright, I have been struggling with this problem for about 4 months now, all other websites want me to run a line connection test when I can't understand why I can tell them everything they need to know already... Anyway...

I am running SBC Global DSL, rated at 1.5K Kbps. My modem model is a Speedstream 5100 with firmware version 1.0.0.53. From my modem it runs into my Linksys WRT54G Wireless router with firmware 4.30.5. The router firewall router is disabled.

So here is my situation, as I previously stated, my connection that I am paying for is supposed to be 1.5K Kbps. Then for what ever reason the connection slumps down to around 384 Kbps, exactly a fourth of what it is supposed to be. And I have had very little luck assessing the situation. I have updated my modem, which actually fixed it for a while, about 2 weeks or so if I remember correctly. Then it went back. I haven't tried updating my router mainly because I hate to mess with that thing. I updated it once, and thats why my router firewall is disabled because I couldn't connect with it on. I am also weary of resetting the router, mainly because of the unknown.

Oh one thing I forgot to mention! I can reset my modem, and it will restore the speed I am supposed to get, but after about 24 hours, it goes back to the fractional speed...

At this point in time I can only think of a few solutions to my problem, and I am hoping you guys will be able to help me a bit... this is what I have come up with so... Read more

Hi,
I have some trouble in Internet speed today.The problem is when I check Internet speed from speedtest.net its nearby speed provided by my isp but webpages seem to open very slow in browser and many item on page are invisible.

But when I use vpn speed seems to see normal.
Even I checked by changing dns and cleaning all the stuffs still its happening.

Any Suggestions?
 

Answer:Slow Internet Connection

Reboot your router.

Are they multiple devices connected to your network, using bandwidth?

I still remember the dial-up days (~56kbps), no complaints because it was better than nothing.

It has no internet connection, wireless or wired through ethernet.
wireless says it's connected but no internet connection. (white page)
It has Avast Premier and Malware Bytes as av software.
Attempted to navigate computer. So slow and re-accurring lockups.
Tried to run rkill then malware bytes. Still running very poorly, often locking up, no internet connection.
Tried to reset adapter, uninstalled re-installed, tried to reset winsock.
 Pretty sure my friend runs a lot of junk on this system.
I can follow directions quickly and to the letter to my esteemed person who chooses to guide me.

Answer:Very slow no internet connection at all

Hi! I'm sorry to hear about the issues you are having. 
 
- What do you see on the network icon in the taskbar, does it have a red X or an exclamation mark? or does it show connected?
- Do you have any other internet capable device in your network that has connection at the moment? Perhaps it could be a router/modem problem. 
- If you run CMD and type ping www.google.com what type of response do you get?
- It would be good if you could run this excellent tool and check all the boxes - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/netadapter-repair-all-in-one/

hiya!

i'm using windows 2000 and connect to the internet through dial-up. modem is 56k. speed: 36.0 Kbps.

when i browse the net, pages load very slowly and downloading speed never exceeds 3 KB/sec. sometimes less. i tried using internet download manager but it didn't really change much.

i just want to know if it is the best my computer can do? i have a firewall installed, an intivirus, an antispyware... do these programs slow down my connection or something?

i'm from a third world country if it helps any.

Answer:slow internet connection

I suggest you start with your ISP. Dialups can be horribly slow - really dependent upon your ISP. Did you ever get a better speed? Have you contacted your ISP about the speed issue - what do they say? Have they tested your connection speed?Also take a look at Slow Computer/Browser

Hi.
I truly hope someone here can help.

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

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

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

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

Nothing will improve my internet connection.

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

Can someone help me please?
Much obliged.
