Painfully slow computer especially when on internet

Question: Painfully slow computer especially when on internet

Hi there,

I need some help if possible, have had a look a the other posts re. slow computers etc but am finding that my laptop is getting painfully worse and is really affecting my work! I was hoping someone could help/identify the problem? I have even changed everything to basic grey etc where possible.

I don't think I have a boot disk available.
Windows 7 OS
Dual core process
4GB RAM
64-bit

Preferred Solution: Painfully slow computer especially when on internet

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.)

A little bit of info:

I have 3 computers, one desktop 2 laptops. All, up until around a week ago worked fine, but suddenly, just one of them has suddenly experienced painfully slow internet!

I have not moved the router, nor have I moved the receiver until after this occured, to try and resolve the problem.

The reciever is sitting ON TOP of the router, so interference could not be the problem, I assume.

We have not moved anything around as far as phones and microwaves etc go.
I have got the wireless router hardwired into mmy computer as well, and I can not tell, because it is so miniscule, but I think that may have made it a tiny bit faster.

I am usuing a WRT350n linksys modem, if thats any help.

The problem does not seem to be the internet speed, but more the time it takes to open a webpage. I could click a link and wait 5 minutes before anything happens, and then suddenly, it will work fine, unless I am watching a video, then the video will go at about dial up speed.

Hello!

Can someone please help me? I am writing this from a dimly-lit Polish internet cafe with a slow
internet connection. I came here because my Toshiba laptop (windows xp) has been running painfully
slowly. My livelihood depends on my computer and internet working!! Apparently I have caught a virus
and/or malware, but I cannot even post a HijackThis report, because my internet connection is too slow,
either on DSL or 3-G, to even download the Hijack This program!!!

The internet speed in this internet cafe is a measly 8 megabytes. It takes too long to download from
this internet cafe.Would someone possibly be willing to send me the latest Hijack Program by email to: [email protected]? That way I could download it from the USB drive and run it on my
computer and post the results here.

Please help me. Thank you.

Larry

Hi,I moved over to TalkTalk internet about a year ago from Orange Broadband. Since then I have experienced very slow connection, which didn't appear to happen at first but now is almost always occuring.Basically, pages stop loading, for example if I open a YouTube video it stops after loading about 20%. This also happens with downloads. Anything larger than about 3mb and it stops.This isn't just the size of the content though, as it happens on text pages like a google search results page too.I've done some searching on the net and seen many people say it's because of the amount of traffic slowing down connections, but again this isn't the issue. It happens at all times of the day, for example I tried this morning before 7am and couldn't load anything pretty much.Is this likely to be a TalkTalk issue as I never had any problems with my broadband connection when I was on Orange Broadband. Is it worth me looking for a different supplier?Thanks

Answer:Painfully slow internet

"Is this likely to be a TalkTalk issue as I never had any problems with my broadband connection when I was on Orange Broadband"Presumably you left Orange for some reason? Have you contacted TalkTalk about this problem - your connection certainly shouldn't be like that. Sign up to the TT Forum - the postings are read and acted upon by the TT adminclick here

I am posting this on behalf of a friend who has asked for my help.Running the internet on his computer is painfully slow, and I am looking for a solution.The ISP is freeserve, on the anytime package, and the connection speed averages about 36.0kbps, according to dialup properties, but I find this hard to believe as it takes half of forever to load an internet page.The problem has existed ever since the computer was new, about a year ago.I have already tried running ad-aware, cleaned everything out, still no joy.I have tried updating the modem drivers, also made no difference.There aren't any surplus applications running in the background, and MSN messenger is disabled, as well as everything unnecessary at startup.The computer is running winXP with a creative V9.X Ham fax data modem.I am going to try having the gain on the line turned up tomorrow, but suspect it will make little difference.Can anyone suggest a reason, or a solution to this problem.Thanks in advance for all responses!

Hi There,

My mum has just bought this machine home from France adter borrowing it.

I've booted it up and everything was so slow that windows would disappear line by line.

I've carried out maintenance, such as defrag, clear temp folders, deleted old program folders.
Carried out a CC clean.

I've scanned with ESET (this gets stuck around 40%). Bitdefender online was so slow it was incredible but reported nothing.

I have McAfee on the machine but dont really see the point in running it as it doesnt seem to be very good at catching or reporting things.

The maintenance made a small difference to the spead, but not to any great degree.

I've tried running MS maliscious s/w removal tool but again it is so slow I cant complet it.
Tried malware bytes also but no success in finding anything.

I've tried and only thinkg I can think to do now is ask for your help on here.

DDS is below and all other files attached as requested.

Thanks in advance, fingers crossed

Roz

Hi There, Just thought I'd check again if they'd been a reply on this but still nothing.

Hi there i have a pc wired to a router and a wireless laptop and the internet is painfully slow.I ran both Malware bytes and super anti spyware and they found nothing.My antivirus found some things but when it removed them the problem was still there.I speed tested my internet and the download speed seems to be ok ish but the upload speed is vitrually non existant.I have run the tests from there proper locations but i can't upload the logs so i have had to load them onto a external drive and use a different pc.
 

Answer:Internet painfully slow

The download speed now seems to be affected.I did forget to mention that the Pc and the wireless laptop are networked together and they are both affected by the same problem.

This could very well be the wrong forum for this question so please feel free to move it.

Last week my internet browsing became painfully slow on my main work computer and I'm at my wits end as to what it could be. Any help is REALLY appreciated.

Every application still runs at top speed with no issues, it is just web browsing. I guess that isn't entirely true since internet dependant programs like Google Earth are slow as well, but it's the "internet" part that is slow on them.

I run CCleaner every day, I have AVG and and AVG PC tuneup both of which I run on a regular basis. I have Spy Bot search and destroy. I have malwarebytes. None of the above are finding any issues. and all are updated

I dont think it's my router. My other computers run the intenet at the same speeds they always have, just not this one. I now have this computer hooked up VIA cable to the router just to make sure it isn't a wireless problem and it still is slow.

I have IE, Opera, Firefox and chrome. All went from very fast to very slow when whatever is wrong went wrong.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Answer:painfully slow internet

Do you have alot of add-ons and tools bars installed on all browsers? if so try uninstalling some of them. Add-ons and toolsbars use extra RAM if using too much this can cause slower page loads.

It takes forever to pull up Interent Explorer... and still everything is very slow in terms of reaction time to my clicking/typing. If I leave my computer on overnight, it takes a few minutes it seems to "warm up" once I try to access an application.

Any suggestions? I know this is a vague description. Thanks.

I have been scratching my head on this problem for a week and I hope someone can help me. I maintain a small network (2 computers) network for a non-profit. At the beginning of July I got a call from one of users and said that he couldn't get email or internet access. When I was able to get onsite I noticed that the network card was not working. They had no lights on it and they were getting an internal IP address (169.x.x.x) instead of a router supplied one (192.168.2.x).

I didn't think much of this. I had a spare NIC at home and took the machine home to work on it. I changed the NIC with the spare one that I had, XP found the driver for it and I was online in a matter of minutes. I ran a Live Update on the Norton programs and everything was working great on my home network.

The following week I brought the computer back and put it in place and when I fired it up I was getting a response when I tried to use the web browser but the pages were taking 20+ minutes to load. It was like the inbound flow of data was constricted to almost nothing. I double-checked all my settings. The new NIC appeared to be working fine. I was not getting any Event viewer errors and I was assigned a DHCP IP address that should have worked just fine. I double checked these settings against the other computer on the network tha...

Answer:Painfully Slow internet connection

Time for a different NIC. You seem to have eliminated all other possibilities. Must be something about that NIC in that specific environment that is an issue. I normally suspect power grounding issues when I see stuff like this. Remember, your laptop has the "wall wart" transformer, and so is isolated from the A/C power.

hello, i have a low spec pc, (pentium 200 mhz, 64 ram) the internet access is slow like you wouldnt believe, browsing from web page to web page takes ages, any ideas or suggestions on my options here to improve connection speed thank you for your time

Answer:painfully slow internet access

what version of windows do you have and is this a recient problem or has it always been very slow?are you using a dial up connection? if so and its always very slow then try installing the latest drivers for your modem. try turning of graphics in web pages, this should speed things up but it wont look very nice and some sites may not work very well. in internet explorer click tools/internet options/advanced and untick 'show pictures' 'play anamations in web pages' 'play videos in web pages' boxes.run a check for spyware with adaware or spybot click here click here as this can slow things down further.as above some more info may help a bit.

The Acer laptop never has internet issues, it is always loading pages very fast. However, my wifes laptop (lenovo) is incredibly slow, it literally takes 3minutes or more for one page to load. I ran a speed test on both laptops and they both have very similar results, not sure what else to do....any suggestions? Thank you.

Hi Guys,

I am having issues with my connection speeds. I am running a BT Home Hub software version 6.2.6.H.

On the router config page it tells me that my downstream is 3MB and my upstream 1MB (which is what I'd expect due to the distance from my telephone exchange).

However, my browser is running extremely slowly and pages like Facebook with photo's etc. take an age to load.

I ran an online broadband speed checker and it reckons I am getting around 130kbps downstream and 250kbps upstream.

I am connecting to the router wirelessly however I have tried a wired connection also with the same poor results.

I have tried this from two PC's - one running XP one running Linpus Linux and am getting the same results.

Any help or pointers would be gratefully appreciated!

Thanks.

Lukio ;.)

UPDATED INFO: I added a 1 GB Ram Stick. Seems to run much better, now. I ran Eset, AVG, and MBAM, again. All came back clean. I then went into each of the 4 user profiles to run CCleaner. that made me think....I wonder if MBAM scans ALL of the users files. So, I decided to run a quick scan on user LIZ: wouldn't you know, it found 3 items:

Adware.Mywebsearch
Trojan.BHO
Trojan.FakeAlert.N

User TOD:
Adware.Mywebsearch

My big question is: Do I have to run all of these scans (eset, avg, mbam) on a PER USER basis?

ORIGINAL POST>>>
I am working on a Dell Dimension 2400, Intel Celeron 2.4 GHZ, 256 Ram, Win XP SP 3. I have run Eset scanner, MBAM, SAS, and Dr. Web Cure It. All of these programs found some bugs. MBAM last run shows clean. ESET found 4 Adware variants. SAS found 38 problems. Dr Web found 2 problems.

I was trying to fix this machine on my own, but have decided that I need some expert help. The machine runs painfully slow, to the point of major frustration. I know the RAM is very light, but I need to know if an upgrade there will fix all of my woes. I am able to connect to the internet, and nothing funny happens. The issue is speed.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi, I really hope you can help me out before I look into wiping my computer and starting from scratch.

A few weeks ago I was infected by something or other which placed a big blue infection warning on my desktop and kept offering anti-virus software for download. I had, and still have, AVG free and Malwarebytes. I noticed they hadn't been updating at all - may be my fault or something got in and switched off updates, I don't know. Anyway, I manually updated and ran both. After removing what they found the big blue warning remained and I had no access to change my desktop image - I assumed it was just a residual image. This seemed to resolve itself - until now I'm looking at a half black desktop screen.

Other issues remain when using Google in IE8 - results appear OK, but most of them re-route me to apparantly random sites until, maybe, the 4th time of trying. Right now, my computer is starting up very slowly and web-pages are tending to load very slowly. Since this has seemed to be a progressive slow-down, I thought of restoring but that doesn't seem to function. Also the de-fragment program doesn't work.

These are just the issues I've noticed in general use. I've removed a lot of files - music, photos etc - to free things up a bit but, obviously the problem is bigger. Any help and advice would be very much appreciated.

Hello-

My computer is painfully slow on the internet. The rest of the computer functions are fine. A year ago I reinstalled Win XP, and never reinstalled any antivirus or firewall software on it, in a desperate attempt to make the computer surf faster. I know, dumb. Well, I've finally woken up and installed AVG Antivirus as well as ZoneAlarm for Firewall protection. These were installed today, so any issues are not due to slipping past these programs.

Once again, computer is painfully slow when on the internet. Can somebody please help me save my pc so I don't have to get a new one.......

Thank You!

I knew I had some malware/spyware problems since everytime I ran my spyware removal, I always had the same issues that were fixed time after time, so yesterday I did a thorough clean of my computer following all instructions within the Read Me First thread. Today, trying to use my computer, it is still EXTREMELY slow. It almost seems like its gotten even slower since I performed the clean yesterday. I dont know if there is still some sort of spyware or malware within my computer or if its something else, but if someone could help me out, I would greatly appreciate it. Just let me know what kind of logs I need to run or post or if there is anything else I can try and I'll do it, but this is really frustrating trying to do anything and having to wait at least a minute everytime I try to open something, click on something, etc. Thanks!
 

Answer:Computer still painfully slow!

Hi

As you have mentioned you read the Read Me First thread, it has the info you need on which logs to post but these below are the ones needed, the read me while will clean up most malware and junk, it doesnt remove all malware, similar to many different malware scanners will find and remove some malware btu doesnt get all of it, which is why many times the logs requested are needed in which one of our experts will look at and post some manual removal instructions for the remaining bits.



When you return to make your next post, make sure you attach the following logs and that you have run these scans in the following order too:
CounterSpy - ONLY IF you were not able to run Windows Defender
Bitdefender - from step 6
Panda Scan - from step 6
runkeys.txt - the log from GetRunKey.bat
newfiles.txt - the log from ShowNew.bat
HijackThis

NOTE: You can only attach 3 files in a single message so it will require that you use two messages to attach all of these logs!

A couple of months ago we took our computer in to get it reformatted and cleaned because it was running very slowly - taking more than five minutes to start up, any music we played was distorted, programs were slow to open, etc. When we got it back, everything ran beautifully - startup took seconds, programs opened quickly, music played clearly. The repair guy wasn't very clear about what had been wrong. He said we had "a virus" when asked, but wasn't specific about what virus it was.

Anyway, a few weeks after we got it back, it started running slowly again. It now takes well over five minutes to start up, it takes almost 15 seconds for Firefox to load completely, and music plays unevenly. My partner likes to download music from Soulseek and we're thinking that maybe we picked something up that way, but when we run AVG, it doesn't find anything. It says that there's a "change:" C:\WINDOWS\system32\kernel32.dll.

I tried to follow all the steps in your Five Step process, but was unable to complete the Panda scan. It just stalls, or sometimes I get a generic error message from Panda. Also, we have the Windows Service Pack 2, so I didn't update the operating system. So here's the DSS log. Any help would be most appreciated!!

Cheers,
Cara

Computer is painfully slow and no idea how to fix it as what i've tried isn't worked. Scanned with MSE, Malwarebytes, and Super Antispyware. SAS found several things and removed them, but the problem hasn't been corrected. It was the only scanner to actually detect anything. Also, whenever I boot into Windows, I can never click on the start menu. I have to stop explorer.exe from running and reopen it. This process called HelpPane.exe always starts up and the Help window opens up. I did all of these scans from within Safe-Mode and offline. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Hello,

(Description take from my other thread...)

For the past 3 weeks I have been in a constant battle with my computer and trying to fix it. I am getting browser misdirects to google-analytics and it is almost impossible to browse any websites other than search engines. I have tested this in multiple browsers with the same results. Also, my download speed in a browser is somewhere in the single digits of Kbps, making the downloading of software incredibly difficult.

Over this period of time, I have run full spans of Kaspersky, Spybot Search and Destroy, MBAM, and Ad Aware. I have also ran Combofix, MBAM and TDSS in safe mode. Several infections have been removed, but it seems to have had no effect.

I have also tried deleting my browser cache's, reinstalling my operation system (Windows 7 Profession 64 bit) by upgrading my existing OS, replacing my existing OS, and again on a new partition. All to no success.

My computer has 2 hard drives and one external. The one hard drive is from my old computer, and I use it as a backup for my old system. The external is essentially storage for movies, music, etc. I have done scans with MBAM on these as well and they are clean.

Lastly, the internet connection method I use is a wired connection that runs through a Cisco Powerline over Ethernet station, which connects to a Linksys router on the floor below. I have not attempted to reset either.

My internet connection at home on my laptop has been working absolutely fine at home for quite some time however a few nights ago I was using it and all of a sudden it went down to dial up speed and hasn't recovered properly since. I tried rebooting the router and computer but still no good so I called my ISP. They tested the line their end and said everything seemed to be working fine but then couldn't help me much further because I am using a different router than the one they supplied me with. I have logged into the router and that is showing that the speed should be running at the full speed possible in my area so I tried re-installing the router but still this has not helped. The other night I fixed a load of problems with registry but that hasn't helped either. I use AVG for security and that isn't showing any problems with the laptop. I tried uninstalling Firefox and going back to Explorer but that hasn't help either. Starting to run out of ideas now.

Answer:Internet connection suddenly painfully slow

Plug directly into the nic card and bypass the router. See what speeds you get when connected directly to the modem. If you get the expected speeds and you have reset the router and it still doesn't help, the router is probably toast.

Hi Everyone,

I have a very strange problem. I am using a Windows 7 ASUS laptop N61J. I can connect to the internet fine at home and get good speeds at home. However, when I go to work and connect to the wireless there my internet speed is so slow I want to dig out my old dialup modem and start using that. I would fiddle around with the router itself but since it's at work all the people here use it so I don't want to fiddle around with it cause I may have an angry mob after me if mess up.

Everyone else at work seems to have okay internet speeds. I have noticed I am the only one using Win 7 - Professional.

Please help me. I've only started work at this new office a couple of days and if I am to pretend to be doing work I really need the internet.

Are you using homegroup? are there mixed OS'es on the work network? Are you using IPv6?

Hello,

I have Windows XP SP 2. This comes with Internet Explorer 6, which worked fine until I installed IE7. IE7 takes about an hour to load. Now, even if I uninstall IE7, IE6 does not work. It is not a spywear or firewall that blocks it and I do not have a virus. I tried to fix the problem by turning off the phishing filter, run it without add-ons. I reseted IE7 back to base level by erasing temporary internet files, cookies, history and password, still it does not work. I have installed Microsoft's critical updates, XP Service Pack 2 and I have the latest version of Flash Player and I tried registry fixes with the Windows Installation Disk.

Is there anybody, an expert who understands this problem with IE7?

Thank you for paying attention to this problem!

Yesterday I bought a Toshiba C50D-A-133, not the best laptop granted but I was on a tight budget. As the title says when I try to browse the web it takes up to 4 minutes for the page to load if at all. I uninstalled IE and I'm currently using Chrome but it makes no difference unfortunately.
 
- AMD E1-2100 APU
- Windows 8
- 4GB RAM
 
I've tried restarting my router and laptop to no avail, as well as checking my drivers which are all up to date. My older laptop which is from 2006 and probably has 5MB of RAM browses at least 10x faster than the Toshiba. I only really understand the basics of computing, I get a bit lost when it comes to DNS settings and whatnot. Hopefully someone can help me out here, thanks in advance.

Answer:Internet browsing painfully slow on new laptop

If the same problem exists whether the computer is directly connected to the router/ modem or wireless, then your best move
is to return the computer while it is under warranty. But first, uninstall all software that you downloaded and installed.
 
Many free programs and add-ons come with adware. Some could cause your problem...you can check for that. Use the
programs listed below.
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free
AdwCleaner Download
 
Post the logs of those programs here if malware/ adware was found.
 
Also, from where did you purchase the computer? What country?

Your problems are not due to malware and as such you should be posting in the Software Forum. I could give you a few tips
(but you may not like them) but first you will have to download and use the proper version of MGtools from the READ & RUN ME. You did not download the current version which you must always do when running the READ ME. Run the current version and attach a new MGlogs.zip file.

Also why did you run ComboFix more than once?

I hope that all is well. I have already run the HiJackLog and will post it below. Here is a brief description to what is happening to my computer.

1. It all started when I accidentally installed my Office 2003 Small Business Software, that I thought came with the computer, onto my Sony Vaio. The reason for this error was because I was trying to import contacts from address book to my gmail account and it said I needed to reinstall the disc so all of the files would be there??? Unfortunately, it was the wrong disc which came with my previous computer. I have the MS Office XP Media Edition 5.0 on my Sony Vaio. That pretty much ruined everything. Everytime I went to use a sysytem restore point it would come back unsuccessful.
(I recently downloaded the Trial Offer - Microsoft Office 2007 Standard addition with Outlook 2007 - so I could work on the computer. I'm in the process of buying this software.)
2. While I'm typing in this text, there is a long delay before the letters pop-up. I am a horrible typist so for that too happen is bad.
3. Firefox, Outlook, etc take at least 10 minutes to start and it sometimes crashes.
4. When I reboot my computer it takes forever to load and seems like it's not even running.

If you need additionnal information or a better description of what happened let me know. My business is suffering...

I was attempting to download a podcast on my Toshiba Satellite and was told i needed to update adobe....i think it was adobe, i wasn't paying much attention.
Following that the computer froze and could not be turned off unless i used the power button.
Then every time i turned it on it would be incredibly slow. Then when i attempted to press any button it would freeze.
I then disabled anything that wasn't essential at start up and this improved it slightly.
It will perform very basic functions but painfully slowly and many programs appear to much for it and it freezes.
It connects to the internet but Firefox soon stops responding.
One time it appeared to be working much better then crashed to blue screen.

It appears to work fine in safe mode.

Hope you can help.

I read the rules but cannot get anything to function on my PC.

A quick description:
Used the computer and everything was fine. The next day IE would not launch and the programs that did work were taking forever to launch...for example, if I click on Control Panel to open it, it will take 7-10 minutes to open. It does this for any program I try to run, though IE will not open no matter what. As long as it took, I did run Webroot and there were no issues found (at least with that program) and I also did a system restore to 3 days prior to the problem surfacing. Nothing has worked--the computer is still taking forever to launch any programs and IE will still not load. Along with Webroot the computer has Windows Defender. That tandem has never created a problem in the past--I have had this PC since new and for about 2 years.

I tried running Windows in Safe Mode and it is still the same. Is there anything I can try to load via a thumb drive to see if I can analyze/fix? I do OK with following instructions but am not computer savvy.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
 

Answer:Computer painfully slow and IE won't launch

Bump.

Really stuck on this one. I got the computer to respond (sort of) in safe mode and ran the rkill and then malewarebytes just to see if that would help. Rkill showed no issues, malewarebytes found some items, asked to reboot and then when the reboot happened there was no improvement at all.

I have a Compaq Presario running windows XP home edition that is several years old, and over the last six months it has gotten slower and slower, both online and trying to browse my files. For online I use the lastest version of Firefox, downloaded just a day or two and it's still slow. Often programs will freeze, say (not responding), and I have to hold the power key and completely restart the computer. In these cases my cursor still appears on the screen and moves, but doesn't do anything when I click stuff. I've run spybot and AVG scans and they come up with nothing. Please advise with what other information I need to post.

dear tech,

This year my PC has slowed down considerably to the extent now that it takes at least 20mins to boot up and even opening up "my documents" takes about 2mins. I have spysweeper and trend micro for protection and regcure for registry file cleanup. Every noiw and again I use CCLeaner and de-fragment regularly to no avail. Spysweeper recently picked up LDPinch trojan and quarantined it. I have read other threads and paste in the Hijack file for your perusal. Your help would be much appreciated. Donation promised

My computer has really been slowing down lately, boot time is pretty much the same as usual, not great, but reasonable. The real problems happen a few minutes after I log in and am trying to run some programs, or view documents. This is especially the case when connected to the internet.
Please help!! maybe I'm running too many processes that don't need to be there?

Hello,

My friend has a computer that takes very long to start up, and very long to load programs. I've run a Malware scan, which found and fixed 12 problems. I can't seem to find the log for it anywhere on the computer, even though I know I saved it. It fixed Broken.OpenCommand; Adaware.PopCap, GameVance, MyWay, & Hotbar; and Trogen.Agent issues, however.

I ran a HJT, then deleted a lot of startup and internet files they did not use. I also tried deleting all references to Norton/Symantec, as they deleted that from their computer and then installed MacAfee. However, still lots of problems. I've included the before and after HJT logs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

My computer was booting and running fine, than all of a sudden, it started to take about 2 minutes to boot up, instead of the normal 30 seconds. Now, it takes LITERALLY 10 minutes to boot up.

I had this problem about 3 months back...same symptoms. I backed up everything and reformatted my system and it went back to working fine again.

I'd really like to avoid reformatting yet again if I don't have to.

I have defragged, run adaware/spybot and did a full system scan with AVG Virus scanner. Everything has come up clean.

Any help would be so greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi there,Over the past few weeks my computer has majorly slowed down and frequently freezes. I keep getting a message from AOL Spy Zapper about a file it has blocked which had never come up before, although I don't remember the name of the file and it hasn't come back for a while so I cant post it on here. I know that is extremely unhelpful but I would be very very grateful if someone could take a look at my log file when they have the spare time. I have run ADaware and Spybot and nothing comes up but I know there is something lurking somewhere.Thank you in advance,MatthewLogfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 20:09:22, on 13/09/2007Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\csrss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exeC:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware 2007\aawservice.exeC:\Program Files\Common Files\AOL\ACS\AOLAcsd.exeC:\PROGRA~1\Grisoft\AVGFRE~1\avgamsvr.exeC:\...

Answer:Suddenly Painfully Slow Computer

Hello there and welcome to BleepingComputer. My name is Charles and I will be dealing with your log today. There are a few steps I want you to complete to try and resolve the slow down on your computer.A whole host of reasons might account for this slow down, but I will highlight the most prominent ones below.On most computers malware is the most common cause, but at the moment I do not think this is the case.You might like to limit the programs that are loading when your computer starts; you might have unnecessary software loading when you boot your computer which is eating away at your CPU and ultimately slowing down your computer. Many programs install a quick launch feature which is not needed; if you want to use the program you can start it up manually. The easiest way to see whether a program is needed at startup, you can use bleeping computer's own list, which gives an indication of whether the program is required/optional etc. Note that essential processes such as those for your anti-virus or your modem must be kept.So, firstly click on Start | Run and type msconfig. Then hit enter.Click on the 'startup' tab and a list of programs will appear.You can compare the startup name with those on the startup list. The link is below:www.bleepingcomputer.com/startupsTo stop a program loading at boot, just remove the tick.Click 'OK', and choose to restart.You might like to try and clear clutter off your computer, and free up some space on your hard drive.Old games, unwanted phot...

This is a friend's computer (XP SP2, Pentium 1.6 GHz, 256 MB RAM). The computer was extremely slow, and I have done the following:
- Ran adaware and spybot, found 635 (yes, 635) problem files or entries;
- Very little space on C drive; deleted unnecessary files, and moved some to CD to get about 8 GB free space (the total HD is about 20 GB, split into 16 GB drive C and 4 GB drive D);
- Ran cccleaner, and fixed entries and issues;
- deleted e-mule (hope it has been deleted)

The computer is noticeably faster, but still too slow. Grateful for any help in removing unwarranted entries. Hijack log included. Many thanks.

This is in addition to the Windows folder which contains 17576 files in 1192 folders (2.65 GB size on disk, 3.24 GB size). Is the WinNT folder needed? On the two computers that I have, I do not have the WINNT folder.

Hello. In the last 3 or 4 days, my desktop computer running Windows 7 64-Bit has been practically unable to browse internet pages, play online games, or load YouTube videos. I don't know what caused this, and nothing jumps out at me suggesting what might be causing this. Any help would be really appreciated, as I'm going back to school in a few days and I need my desktop to be able to use the internet (though I'm not completely sure it's not my own home network).

Anyway, some information I think is important:
-using RoadRunner service with cable modem and Linksys wireless G router
-I'm connected wirelessly with a TRENDnet wireless N PCI adapter
-the issue is very recent, with no major hardware/software changes to suggest a cause
-I browse with Google Chrome, though I've checked to make sure the issue exists with IE and FireFox
-every so often it regains sufficient connection to load pages at a reasonable speed for about 5 minutes
-my laptop, sitting on the same desk, has a perfectly fine connection (I'm using it to write this)
-very strange: my laptop has 3/5 bars on the network/sharing icon, while my desktop actually has a full 5/5!

I hope this information can help some of you figure this out. If you have any questions or need me to post screens of configs or whatever, I'll do my best to get them up.

I'm hoping someone can help. Sunday morning I did my usual ... checked my email, played Earth 2025, surfed the net, downloaded some stuff, disconnected.

A few hours later I connected again and opened Outlook Express but it wasn't downloading messages. It says "Checking Mail" in the taskbar, however, nothing's downloading even after 10-20 minutes. No time outs, but when I click on "Send/Receive Mail" it's showing the animation. I've actually managed to send email, but only through Internet Explorer using the "File, Send ..." method and I don't know if they got through. I do know they went out though. After this I opened a browser and it took about 3 minutes for Google.com to come up.

Since Sunday the speed has decreased so much that it now takes a min. of 5 minutes to a max. of 15 minutes for a page to load in IE. Hubby's and my computers are networked and he's having the same problem. We're both running XP Home and we have a DSL connection.

I thought the problem may have something to do with a cleanup I did on my registry or something I'd installed recently so I did a system restore back to Friday. No good, still the same!

Having heard about W32.Blaster.worm, I spent about an hour getting to Symantec's page on it and onto the download page for a fix program just in case. Nope, no Blaster! No other viruses for that matter either, according to Norton's 2003.

Hi Everyone-

First post for me. A few days ago, I upgraded from Vista Home version on my Dell Inspiron laptop to Windows 7. Since doing the upgrade, Internet Explorer is painfully slow loading websites. I use a Linksys Wireless router with which my laptop previouslly ran well prior to the upgrade. I've also tried the LAN connection with the same results.

Connectivity seems to be fine and I've run the diagnostic which found no problems. I've also disabled all add-ons.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance-

On my moms laptop, (month old Lenovo B570/i3-3230/4GB/W7), when transferring files to my Crucial Gizmo! 16GB USB Drive, it is pretty much impossible to surf the web. Loading websites take 30-60 seconds, it's ridiculous. Is this normal? Her router is Linksys WRT54G. Router is not connected via USB, in fact the Laptop is connected through ethernet cable (not currently using wireless).

It started about 24 hours ago when I started up my computer and it took quite a bit longer than normal. By this I mean that it took 50 minutes for the computer to start up and load all the programs. However it's completely fine when I run it in safe mode.

I have run my anti virus program and it didn't come up with anything serious, I've also restored and deleted a lot of unnecessary programs.

I'm running vista and if it makes any difference I just started using my laptop again on Tuesday for the first time in three months.

Might help if you could maybe give more info about your sytem, If you have made any adjustments to your system, What software you are running as of today? One of the problems that i have seen is that people will buy Value ram and install it and seems to be good over a little time but then things just GET really slow. Thinking it may have been something they installed they will then try and put it all back to the way it was... Still slow they don't get the idea of what it could be.. Then they put the Ram back as it came from the factory and all Speeds back up.... With our systems today there are so many things that can make things go slow.... Change of hardware, Change in the Bios settings, change in software and also some updates came sadly make our ssystems worse then they were at one time..... now when you said that you reset to new that tells me that if it was an update then that would have made the system somewhat better then with a Bad update if you will.... Then another thing? Update from 8 or 8.1 to 10? You went back to your old software or just did a reset back to start of your 10? Again if you could give more info you may find more help for the issue..... Have you changed out anything? added anything?

Hello TSG.
I recently reformatted my computer, after getting a virus and deciding that the effort it would take to salvage my computer wasn't worth it.

Prior to getting a virus on my computer, it was very fast and didn't have problems with RAM or memory. After reformatting, however, my computer is very slow despite not having installed even 10 programs.

It's not slow in that the computer is laggy (though it is sometimes, but that's not really something that concerns me), but that programs take very long to load. For instance, I'll open up Firefox, and Windows Task Manager shows the memory usage of firefox.exe increasing by increments of 50. So it'll take 2/3 minutes to open.

In addition, installing new programs takes much much much longer than they should. For instance, it took me nearly an hour and a half to install a trial version of Photoshop CS3, only for it in the end to have a problem telling me to reinstall it. Windows Update took very long as well (nearly half a day!)

I haven't done anything different to this newly reformatted computer except for one thing -- the first thing that I did when I reformatted my computer was to install Trend Micro Anti-Virus, from a trial that I found online.

I do know that prior to installing that program, my computer wasn't too slow at all... But sometime afterwards, it became very sluggish. I don't know if the issue relates at all to the antivirus program itself, but I thought you s... Read more

I'm running Free Windows Registry Repair. After finding and fixing thousands of errors, it keeps finding about 50. I'll fix and scan again, and most of the same ones come back, always around 50. I wiped and reinstalled XP a while ago. I've also cleaned out all non-essential stuff with CCleaner. It's still difficult just running one program, forget about multiple programs or games. Any ideas? I'm not getting a new computer or OS.

Answer:Continuously Recurring Registry Errors, Painfully Slow Computer

Every reputable tech support source I've ever read says don't bother with registry cleaners. They don't really do much in terms of improving performance, and they can seriously mess up your computer. Can you give a little more info on your computer, specifically how much RAM you have? Also do me a favor and look at your task manager (press Ctrl+Alt+Del) and tell me how many processes are running?

Hey,

I'm trying to help a friend with their computer issue (Dell, running Vista). The machine is painfully slow while online and off.

When online you can click a link or two to jump to other articles, but after a couple of times the computer will just sit with the wheel spinning on the screen and never load the new page. Most of the time you have to use the Task Manager to get out of the browser. This computer is about 3 years old and is used by an older person for basically, email, internet, recipes and etc.

Yesterday, I checked to see what was in start-up and turned off a couple of things, but nothing in there that was a red flag. Cleaned up the registry and de-fraged the hard drive using Tuneup Utilities. Ran Ad-Aware and it took 3 hours to complete! Did not really find anything concerning. I don't think I have ever run Ad-Aware and it take that long to complete a scan. The hard drive is only about 25% full, so there is not a lot on the hard drive.

After asking the owner a few more questions, she said it seemed to start after a recent McAfee update. I don't use McAfee on my computers, so I was curious if this was happening to others who use the product.

I think I may remove McAfee and install Avast and run a boot scan this evening.

I know that I can post a HJT report, but did not want to do that until I had eliminated other possibilities.

I would appreciate any suggestions of other things to check/eliminate before posting a HJT report.

Hello,

My wife is from Waynesboro, PA and she read about this website in the local newspaper (apparently the creator of the site is from there and lives there as well). Sorry, but she wanted me to mention this

My problem is that everything is taking forever to happen in my computer. Examples: when I try to open a folder it takes minutes for that folder to open; if I try to rename a file it takes minutes for the "right click" to start a menu of options; when I try to empty the trash it takes minutes for that to happen (if it ever happens). Often, when a folder will not open and I use the "task manager" the window of the folder that is taking forever to open will shut down after a "not responding" message. What sometimes happens is that I receive a "Windows Explorer not responding" window. Also, some programs will either take forever to open or will just not open at all when I try to open them.

I have already ran Malaware, Search & Destroy and SuperAntiSpyware and removed some crap they found. I also did a "system restore" to about one week ago (before these problems started). Here follows my HiJack this log.

Please help. This computer is only one year old and there is no reason for it to be acting this way other than the fact it is probably infected.

Thank you.

My windows XP Pro install should be clean, as very rarely do I actually use it. Most everything I do is done inside of VMs.

Earlier today I was watching a video (on the host OS, not in a VM) while running Pidgin and Firefox on Linux in a VM (Using Sun's VirtualBox). I had been having some issues with the VM crashing (what I believed to be related to the minimal amount of ram that I had allocated for it), and it did crash while I was watching this video.

Everything began to stutter, and the computer froze. After rebooting, it is taking upwards of 10 minutes for the Windows boot screen (with blue load bar) to finish, another few minutes for the the CRTL-ALT-DEL to show up, and then a minute or two for me to log in.

Things I have done in an attempt to diagnose this:
Ran memtest86, two passes with no errors
pulled individual ram modules out, same thing, regardless of what is pulled
detached all USB devices
booted into safe mode

All of these things produced no results.

I booted off of a Slax (linux live) cd, and the system was running considerably better than XP was, with no noticeable effects of this issue.
This install of windows is fairly new, It was built about a week and a half ago using nLite to integrate graphics, network, and hdd drivers. It has been working flawlessly until this point.
Thanks for any ideas, I'm really looking forward to getting this resolved.

Good evening,
 
I've been having issues with all browsers since a recent re-install of Win 7 Ultimate.
 
I've never had browsing issues before, and recently installed a new MB & RAM because my adoring nephew decided he wanted to 'fix' my front panel USB sockets with a screwdriver. Bless his cotton socks, and he's still alive but managed to fry everything else.
 
Since my install I've painstakingly re-installed everything from before and sat through a couple of years worth of updates, yet my browsing capability is no where near what it used to be.
 
All graphics, videos, Ads, particularly in Face Book, BBC iPlayer, You Tube and miniclip are very slow to load - even general web page load up take 6-10 seconds to fill all the page images.
 
I've run countless AV's, Spybot, Stopzilla in standard and safe mode - installed firefox tweaks to load pages quicker, checked to make sure my drivers are up to date, but no avail.
 
Please could I call upon your expertise to help me return my browsing enjoyment back to normality?
 
Thanks & Best Regards,
Chris

Hi there,
I am new here. I am also relatively new to Vista. I love XP SP2 but I got vista business with my new tablet (1GB RAM, T7250).
I have a huge problem with vista's explorer. When I use desktop search on XP and select a pdf file, it appears INSTANTLY in the preview - which is btw fully equipped adobe reader, so you can further search the file, copy from it etc.
Now in vista, when I click the file, my computer hangs for about 3 minutes, and then the file appears.
I hope this is not normal. What can be possibly wrong? I updated adobe reader but it didn't help.
So, why is it so slow? This makes the system useless for me.
Also, can I change the appearance of the reader in the preview pane so that it offers full interface, just like in XP?
Can anyone help me, please?
Thanks, skl

I'm not an expert, but 1GB is not a lot to be running Vista with.

Question: Painfully slow...

Hi
I am hoping for some assistance, please. My mum's laptop is seizing up and hanging the longer she uses it. I am sure there are all sorts of rubbish programmes that are causing it to plod. Mum's laptop is a HP G62 intel i3 4GB running Windows 7.

Having tried to follow the instructions, I am stuck with HiJackThis. First of all, it gives an error message that my system has denied access to the Hosts file. If I OK this, it performs the scan but will not save a log file. Any ideas?

Otherwise, here's the DDS one and I've hopefully attached the attach one. Thank you so much!:

Answer:painfully slow PC

I would receomend definatly checking the page fill size... by default windows 7 sets it as automatically managed by system... if it is set to automatic then that is fine.. also youcould try disabling windows aero theme. also a disk optimizer / defragmenter would be good to run. you have a good video card , processor, and ram. so you just gota get the system to read the files and know were there are from the sounds of it ... also the thing i would recomend before you do anything ... is a check disk.. you go to start , click on my computer and right click ont he C: drive and go to properties. then go to the tools tab and schedule a disk check by checking both check marks .. then a disk check will be scheduled for the next time the machine will restart.

Question: Painfully slow PC

I have my daughters old PC as a second one, it is an emachine with a 1.7 ghz intel celeron processor, 128 mb of ddr, running on XP home with a 40gb HDD.When I got it it was so slow and the HDD was continuously active so I replaced that with another 40gb one I had spare. Initially it was quite quick but since I have installed AVG and Zone alarm it is so slow you can cook and eat a meal whilst waiting for it to do something. It wasn't all that much better before i put Zone alarm on and even disabling it doesnt make much difference.Could this be the processor or would increasing the RAM to a reasonable size do the job??

Answer:Painfully slow PC

Increase the RAM.XP really needs at least 512mb to make it run ok.

Question: painfully slow IE8

Believe it or not but it took my pc to load your website 12 minutes. The slowness started about six hours ago, all of a sudden. My system is running xp pro sp3 with the latest updates. I have mcafee total protection installed since christmas last. I have run a total scan with mcafee also with malwarebytes, and both found no issues. Please see my hjt log file below. Thank You in advance for your help. Larry

Question: Painfully slow

I am running Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit, and am having intermittent slowness issues where the computer comes to a crawling pace while using Outlook, Chrome or IE, any of the 3.  Pages won't load, they time out or just continue to hang.  The Task Manager CPU is low, memory is only using less than 2gigs of the 4gigs available.  Am I infected?  I was told you were the people to help me, so.... HELP!!  Thanks.

Over the past few weeks when I boot up my Windows ME Office 2000 PC it kind of pauses for a couple of minutes before loading my desktop icons on the screen. It then works as normal. I can't restore my system as I had a nasty virus on it (which I have now got rid of). It's not the RAM and the only software I have installed since this started is Avast anti virus. What could it be??

Answer:My painfully slow boot up.

click here and look at the startup options he suggests. You can disable a number of the programs that load automatically.

I got my laptop back fitted with a new hard drive. and it is very slow compared to what it used to be. From turning it on untill i canopen up my first window is 30 seconds longer. and when the screen saver kicks in it takes nearly 2 mins to et back in.My specs are intel celeron, 720mb ram, Windows XP, 60 gb hdd, 2.7 Ghz.any ideas Lee

Answer:painfully slow new laptop

This could be a number of factors. For example what is the spin speed of the new HDD and what level cache has it got? Spin speeds could be typically 4200 or 5400 and caches 4MB/8MB. Compare these to your old HDD.Also, depending on your laptop,check in the BIOS for options to use accelerators for the HDD. Perhaps if you post back the make and model someone will be able to help. You seem to have plenty of RAM anyway!

Hi there,

I'm helping my mother from a distance and am not completely sure what may be troubling her computer. She's 99.9% computer illiterate so I've minimized the number of programs I've had her download and run so far. It may be coincidental but she downloaded some sort of coupon printer at about the time that she began having problems. She says she uninstalled it but it still shows up on her menu of programs. Her biggest problem is starting up--it takes ages to boot, icons are very slow to show up on the desktop. When she tries to initiate an action like clicking on the start menu, it often takes 3-4 minutes for that action to complete.

I had her run a Panda scan and I don't think she correctly saved the results. Ugh.

I then had her do the hijack this log. That's what I'm attaching. In the meantime...

She ran Spybot and it found:

doubleclick
excite
fastclick
hitbox
link synergy
mediaplex
search pixiebar hijacker
web friends live

She checked all of those and fixed. She rebooted, same issues.

I had her do msconfig from the RUN menu. She says that she received a message saying unable to find it. I had her run it again, ensuring she typed correctly. Again, same message.

Next I had her download Avira, as she had attempted to uninstall Trend's antivirus before and I wasn't sure what was up with her and any sort of anti virus software. She was unable to get the download to complete. It started. Then poof. Like I said, everything is super laggy. And she sometimes clic... Read more
