Computer slow to load programs in system tray, and slow to boot IE8 only on first time

Question: Computer slow to load programs in system tray, and slow to boot IE8 only on first time

Norton 360 shows no viruses. When I boot up computer, programs in system tray are slow to load. Also, on first attempt only, Internet Explorer 8 takes 2-3 seconds .. after that, it loads faster. Not sure what's causing this. Please help, and thank you in advance!Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.4Scan saved at 7:04:07 PM, on 12/8/2010Platform: Windows 7 (WinNT 6.00.3504)MSIE: Internet Explorer v8.00 (8.00.7600.16671)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\Windows\vVX6000.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Upromise\dca-ua.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Upromise\UpromiseTray.exeC:\ProgramData\FLEXnet\Connect\11\ISUSPM.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\HP\Digital Imaging\bin\hpqtra08.exeC:\Users\David\AppData\Local\Autobahn\mlb-nexdef-autobahn.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\ONENOTEM.EXEC:\Program Files (x86)\Creative\Sound Blaster X-Fi\Volume Panel\VolPanlu.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Pure Networks Shared\Platform\nmctxth.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Sony\PMB\PMBVolumeWatcher.exeC:\Program Files\Logitech\SetPoint\x86\SetPoint32.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\HP\HP Software Update\hpwuSchd2.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Java\Java Update\jusched.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\MSN Toolbar\Platform\4.0.0401.0\mswinext.exeC:\Windows\SysWOW64\Ctxfihlp.exeC:\Windows\SysWOW64\CTXFISPI.EXEC:\Program Files (x86)\iTunes\iTunesHelper.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Real\RealPlayer\Update\realsched.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Search Enhancement Pack\SCServer\SCServer.exeC:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil10l_ActiveX.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\IELowutil.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Trend Micro\HiJackThis\HiJackThis.exeR1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=54896R0" target="_blank" class="invilink">http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=54896R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.musicalchairs.info/R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69157R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=54896R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=54896R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69157R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch = R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = C:\Windows\SysWOW64\blank.htmR1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = *.localR0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName = R3 - URLSearchHook: Yahoo!

Preferred Solution: Computer slow to load programs in system tray, and slow to boot IE8 only on first time

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.)

computer is a lenovo v570

This is an issue that started a few months ago..I have had fresh installs of windows 10 and linux so it's not an issue with background programs. For example if I open my web browser(or any program) it takes an excessive amount of time to bring it up after a reboot. Thereafter it opens up quickly(cause it's now in the ram I suppose). It sometimes may take about 10 seconds to simply open something like a web browser.

Is it most likely a failing hard drive? I haven't had any other problems but would like to get this fixed. I'm not sure how to troubleshoot from here. I was thinking about buying a replacement drive but would like to make sure of the issue first. Thanks, Nathan

Hello smart folks,

My Dell Inspiron 9300 laptop used to boot up in under a minute. Now, it takes several minutes and any time I run a program it takes a long time for them to boot up. And, heck, I see delays in programs while they're in use.

I just upgraded from 512MB to 2 GB of RAM hoping that would help. It didn't.

I've followed your steps and I think my computer is a lot safer now. Thank you.

I run Norton antivirus.

I feel like the biggest contributor to my laptop's slowness is Enterprise Office 2007. Some little searching magnifying glass seems to always be on and my computer's hard drive seems to grind a lot even when the computer should be sitting there idle.

If I open a Microsoft Office 2007 program like Word, Excel, or Outlook, they open REALLY slowly.

Also, can you please recommend a good registry scrubber? I like freeware, but I'll buy it if I must. That RegCure program seems like a scam. Below is my HiJack This log. I've also included the start up log below it since my start up is so slow.

Thank you.

I have been having an issue recently that I've encountered once before, but I lost the location of the steps I used to fix the issue.
 
I have a Dell Inspiron laptop that is currently running Windows 7. I have a TV plugged in to serve as a second monitor. When the problem first started, my mouse would randomly jump from my secondary screen to my main screen without warning, usually while I was playing World of Warcraft. This problem continues to persist, but now I am also having issues where my computer is booting up incredibly slowly, often approaching 10 minutes needed simply to load up the OS and get to the login screen, and then additional time after that to load up my desktop and programs that are set to autorun on startup.
 
I ran an Avast scan today to try and figure out if there was a virus problem, and it told me nothing was wrong, but as I was watching it scan, I noticed it was searching through a few Lenovo files... and I have a Dell. I had a virus at one point a little over a year ago that would randomly deselect my current window, often while I was typing, and it was masquerading under a Lenovo file as well, but I can't seem to find the files this time, and I don't have the tell-tale process happening when I check my task manager.
 
After Avast turned up no results, I ran Malwarebytes in the hopes it would find something that Avast could not, and while it did find and delete 5 files, none of them were the mystery Lenovo files, and my computer conti... Read more

Hi,I recently installed .Net Framework 4.0, this is the only thing that I have really changed or installed to the machine since the problem started. So a day or so after that I noticed that when I get to the Windows XP splash screen at boot up (the black one with the little progression bar and blue thingys moving from left to right) it has become very slow to load. It used to take a couple of seconds, now it seems as though it takes a few minutes, there is also another quick black screen after that that takes maybe 15 seconds to get past but once all of that is loaded the next blue screen loads up fine.Now when the desk top is loaded up everything seems fine...but I noticed my programs load a lot slower than they used to, there is a pretty noticeable delay from when I actually click to open the program and when it actually opens. Everything seems much much slower and delayed/lagged.Another thing that I have noticed is, when downloading a file the computer becomes very choppy, like when dragging a window it will skip across the screen I guess that is how it could be described.I really don't know what could be wrong, I have checked my processes in the task manager and when I'm not running any programs it is at its bare minimum, only about 17 processes running which is normal, haven't noticed any programs in the start up added (its completely empty). I also ran Spybot S&D and that found nothing, I ran Malware bytes and that found one threat but it was listed unde... Read more

Hi Guys,

i'm a newbie to this forum so please forgive me if i make a mistake with the procedures & rules.

I recently (march 1st 2008) re-installed my XP prof on my PC using a Norton Ghost Image i had. This imaged fine & the system ran very quickly (like it does with a new install of XP). I then decided to complete the microsoft updates so my systemwould be fully up to date. After i had completed all the updates i realised that my XP boot up became very slow.
It was normal up to the welcome screen but then when it gats to my desktop the system hangs and does not let me do anything for around 2-3 minutes (normally would only take 20-30 seconds at this point). The hourglass mouse icon appears and i have to wait a long time before the system is usable again. Furthermore, i had around 6 or 7 system tray icons on my XP (including AVG, volume control, network connection, usb device connectoin, etc). All of my system tray icons have gone missing except the network connection icon.
This has all happened after i did the MS update.
I decided that this may be a one-off problem & so i re-formatted my system & re-installed XP from the image i had (on the 8th March 2008). Again, the system loaded fine and was booting up very quickly & with all the system tray icons showing. But after i did the MS updates again the XP boot became very slow & system tray icons dissapeared (as it did before). This is when i realised that the problem must be with the MS updates.

I've noticed that the system has got slow to boot over time. It now takes 2 minutes 11 seconds (give or take).
Today I downloaded Process Monitor from Windows Sysinternals as recommended here
Use Process Monitor To Optimize The Windows Boot Process - gHacks Tech News
The resultant filtered log reveals that, of the 4383 .sys files that load, 6 of them take 1 minute 43 seconds between them.
The following file is an extract of the log (sorted by load time) showing the worse offenders.
Logfile.pdf
I regularly run CCleaner and similar programs and the system is protected by Norton. I have no reason to believe I have any virus or malware installed.
Any ideas how I can speed up these loads?
Please see my System Specs for details.

Answer:Slow boot. Several .sys files take long time to load.

My first thought would be msconfig/Startup/Non Microsoft Services.

Could you use this tutorial by Brink to post pictures of both?

Hello!

I am new to these forums and to Hyjackthis, so im a bit of a noob towards it for now.

Recently, my computer's been acting very weirdly.

It started with skype; i clicke don the shortcut, the .exe would load on Task Manager but not on my desktop, and simply refused to open. A tree of .exes opened on task manager, i tried to alternate to the program but ended up having to finalize it.

Reinstallign skype, it got fixed.

I don't seem to find any suspisious programs on my processes list; other programs have been having the same behaviour, being so slow and deadlocked to the point I gotta reboot my computer to restart it. I'm not sure if my computer is too slow for it, or if i got some viruses. I ran McAfee and Malawarebytes scans and nothing was detected.

Hello, I am currently running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and as of this morning whenever I startup my pc I have about a 10-30 second window maybe (sometimes even shorter) that I can actually get programs to open before my pc just seems to get very slow and nothing at all will open. For example things like ctrl+alt+del takes about 15 seconds before it just goes to a black screen and says the process cannot be completed, whenever I pull up the start menu it will freeze and nothing opens from there, and even trying to refresh the desktop or shutting down/restarting crashes it. I have gone into safe mode with networking to get on Chrome and try to find solutions but nothing has worked. I've ran a full system scan with Malwarebytes and the first time it found only one infection and I quarantined and removed it, but the problem still occurs. I've also done a system restore twice to no avail. I have no more ideas and would greatly appreciate if anyone has a solution to this problem.

Answer:Computer Moving Slow - Noticed Pest Patrol in System Tray

Some types of malware will disable Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it first.Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file file and rename it to mysetup.exe.Double-click on mysetup.exe to start the installation.If that did not work, then try renaming and changing the file extension. click this link if you do not see the file extensionRight-click on the mbam-setup.exe file, rename it to mysetup and change the .exe extension to .scr, .com, .pif, or .bat.Then double-click on mysetup.scr (or whatever extension you renamed it) to begin installation.If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files.Right-click on mbam.exe, rename it to myscan.exe.Double-click on myscan.exe to launch the program.If that did not work, then try renaming and change the .exe extension in the same way as noted above.Double-click on myscan.scr (or whatever extension you renamed it) to launch the program.If using Windows Vista, refer to How to Change a File Extension in Windows Vista.Be sure to update MBAM through the program's interface (preferable method) or manually download the definition updates and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Then perform a Quick Scan in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/pa... Read more

Hello!

My PC is nearly 5 years old and until a few months ago, I have never had a single complaint about it. Over the last few months, my computer has progressively run slower. It is particularly slow when booting up a program. It's to the point now where it takes almost a minute for it to load any new program. I tried restoring my computer (both to a set date and to the original manufacturing point, but to no avail) and installing numerous anti-virus/anti-malware programs. Malware Bytes was one of these and it has proven to be one of the most effective. It found and (seemingly) removed the Vundo virus...although whenever I run the scanner again from time to time, it somehow occasionally finds Vundo remnants. After my computer slowly slipped back into being extremely slow again, I decided I wanted to backup my hard drive, crash my computer, and then reinstall windows. This external backup hard drive was also shared with a MAC and came with minimal instructions...so of course I was completely clueless as to how to use it. Customer service lines in India did no good and left me even more frustrated than before.

Soo...now I'm back to square one. I'd love to try fixing the problem...if I could only locate it. I'd still love to back it up, but I'll try to focus on one problem at a time

Thanks for reading and let me know if anything needs to be explained further!
 

Answer:Slow Computer when opening programs for the first time

Welcome to Major Geeks!

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

Pleases 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 getting updates if (and only if) your internet connection does not work. Yes you could use a flash drive too but flash drives are writeable and infections can spread to them.

A little background to help others help me I'm on a Windows Small Business Server 2003 environment with no other server connection but one machine, I have 3 shared drives created on the server and am running Shared Point Services 2.0 as well and all my computers on the network have a login script assigned to them when booting onto the network so their drives are automatically mapped. Oh and I have POS old Sony laptop running as a proxy using Winproxy 5.0, but it has about a gig of speed and 512 RAM and the connection goes: in from the outside, to the proxy, line directly to server, server assigns ISP's by DHCP internally.

My computer is a Dell Optiplex 2600

Here's a question to start from another thread I posted: About two months back or so I noticed if I put cd's into my PC at work I must have downloaded a rootkit or something because now I cannot play some cd's that I can play on my home computer and others in the office. Now in the future is is safer to burn MP3's on an external harddrive and listen that way or avoid Sony cd's?

Now to the problem, I put in a burned cd this morning it starts up WMP 10 fine and I'm listening to Back in Black then all of a sudden my computer freezes. Crashes my financial program which I think nothing of because I am using Master Builder 11.2 by ... Read more

Hello.

Win XP Pro SP3
Pentium D CPU @ 3.00 GHz
1G ram

This machine is on a server-based network in a nonprofit. I am the "IT person" but frankly, I am not an IT professional... I'm in charge of it simply because I have some basic "do it yourself" skills!

The machine was running very slowly for the past week, with hangs that lasted from 30 seconds to a few minutes, but always did come back. Shut down was taking over 2 minutes; restart was taking nearly 5 minutes. Programs such as MS Word 2003 opened very slowly. Our employee who uses this didn't mention all this to me until...

During an MS auto update this past Wednesday, when XP rebooted to add 11 updates, the machine hung entirely. It took 6 hours before the first update was installed, then sat another 2 hours showing "2 of 11" and "do not turn off or restart your machine."

I contacted MS and after heehawing around for a while, the person said to go ahead and do a hard shut down. It rebooted, slightly faster, and did not hang again, so last night, I was able run Ccleaner, then Spybot Search and Destroy and Malwarebytes. No malware. The machine normally runs Vipre Enterprise (which will show as SBEAgent in the log below); the Vipre log for the past three days for the machine is clean.

I also scanned the disk for errors (none found) last night. And, I changed the page file size so that its virtual memory is now 2500 to 3048.

I then manually updated the remaining 9 OS up... Read more

I noticed slow startup shutdown speeds a month or two ago, and have been trying to fix the problem by using all the usual scanning and detecting software. Some of my programs are slow to launch after a reboot for some reason, after I launch them the first time they lag but when I launch them a second time they pop right up, except for MSconfig which takes about 25 seconds to launch, can't figure that one out. Was having problems with my IE 10 crashing and restarting, and my ISP kept sending me e-mails about illegally downloading copyrighted material, didn't see any unauthorized wireless activity on my Gateway, so I might have had a backdoor problem or something like that. So I finally ran combofix and it took care of a lot of my problems. So far some other programs launch the way they're supposed to, no IE 10 crashing and restarting it, and no more e-mails from my ISP. But I still have slow startup shutdown speeds, and some programs slow to launch, same lag time on MSconfig. I've ran the scanners y'all usually have people run, so I can attach or paste those logs if you would like.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

About a week ago my computer started to run slower than normal. Programs would load at, what I thought, was the normal speed, and run just fine. Games worked fine. Loading of web pages worked just fine as well.

But as I said, about a week ago, my computer started running slower. Startup is fine and still fast. What has changed is the loading of programs will off and on be slow. When I do something within the program, sometimes it will freeze for just a moment before continuing with that process.

With the internet - web pages take extremely slow to load now. And when I click through pages on any website, myspace, facebook, gmail, cnn, whatever, each page within that site takes a while to load. A couple of times Firefox, of all things, has had to shut down unexpectedly. Sometimes it will give me an error message, and sometimes it just closes without any warning.

I have defraged my hard drive, scanned my computer with spybot, adaware, and Trend Micro Anti-Virus. And aside from the few 'low' security bits and pieces here and there, it hasn't picked anything up.

I have 1 GB of RAM on a Windows XP, AMD Athalon 3200+, EMachines computer. My computer is three years old. I have a large hard drive. I'm kind of at a loss and don't know what to do. I'm almost to the point of possibly just going out and buying another computer, but I thought I'd try this as I've heard positive things with the Hijack This program, so I am hoping with this progr...

do you have a windows XP installation CD matching the version on your computer? i'm not talking about any HP recovery disks.

if yes, go to start, run and type SFC / SCANNOW and press OK. insert the xp cd ito the drive when prompted.

alternatively, you can download missing DLL files from this web site:

Windows 8 boots up pretty quickly, but it takes a notably long time (compare to Windows 7) for it to show up the system tray applications. In Windows 7 it is almost instant.



Is this Microsoft's problem or the app maker's problem?

Also, the apps seem to load sequentially. Is there a way to rearrange them so that the ones I want load quickly. I need AutoHotKey, Logitech Setpoint and Logitech Gaming Software to load up ASAP. Rest can take their sweet time.

Also this is what the TaskManager's startup performance analysis looks like.
Having this *feature* means that Microsoft can blame the app maker for the slow startup. But why doesn't that happen in Windows 7? Is this because Desktop is another app, and stuff don't really get priority?

Also I still cannot find why PeerBlock would not start when placed in the classic Startup folder.

Answer:System tray apps take a long time to load

My question is, in Windows 7, did you have the SAME exact apps running at startup?

Also, it might be due to the fact you have many startup items running at once, or maybe some disk fragmentation. I'd disable some of your startup items like apple push, you don't really need that running at startup.

My computer is really slow to boot up and also is opening files really slowly. I reinstalled windows and it is still causing problems. Also this might be a side issue but I noticed that the graphics card is acting up because it has horizontal static lines going through it. I think this is all a hardware issue. I am just not sure if it is two seperate issues or one. Such as the graphics card and something else or just something else and not the graphics card. My computer hasn't had anything added to it except the GeFoprce 8800 GTS graphics card and 500GB HDD. Also there is no virus or software loaded except for the drivers for that device.

Running Win7x86, and it started getting extremely slow, within 2 days of this it started refusing to load at all.

The system is brand new (ready built from ebuyer), and the only alterations have been a sysfan, spare hdd, spare dvdrw.

When trying to load the boot screens take AGES, often sitting blank black for 2/3 mins. Then it sticks on the windows 7 flag for a few minutes and restarts. Upon restart it defaults to the repair centre, where the "windows is loading files..." bar slllooooowwwwlllyyy drags itself to full over 10 or so minutes.

I've managed a few successful start-up repairs, but to no improvement.

I would rather get this fixed myself than resort to the arduous process of ebuyer returns.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Hello, Tech Guy Forums!

I've got a Compaq Presario 2410 laptop running Windows XP Home Ed. (SP2) that's seen a gradual decline in performance over the past several months. Boot-up time has increased to about 5 minutes now, applications load very slowly, even alt-tabbing between two windows can take me on the order of 15 seconds. I've been running Lavasoft's Adaware compulsively, but I'm concerned that it's missing something that's causing the slowdown. I am not seeing an popup windows, but the processor seems to be working quite hard even when no programs are open.

Also, I've had a Windows Update yellow shield popping up regularly for awhile now, which is trying to install Office XP Service Pack 3, but it gets halfway through and asks for the Office XP CD, which I misplaced during my last move across the country. Office works fine (except for the overall slowdown). I have no idea if the update I can't get and the slowdown are related.

I've attached a Hijackthis log in the hope that someone here might be able to help me locate the source of my problems. I'm not literate enough to interpret everything in the log, but I do know better than to start deleting system files willy-nilly. Any help given is thoroughly appreciated!

Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R with latest BIOS
2 x 2 GB Corsair TwinX4096-6400C5 DDR 2 800 mhz
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 in IDE mode?

I've updated to Vista Ultimate SP1, run multiple disk clean ups, defrags, use CCleaner, clean the registry, defrag the registry, disabled services and have made tweaks according to the guide provided on this website and have minimal startup programs running but my boot times average around 2 minutes. For a new computer with new hardware, this seems unreasonable as many users report boot times between 30-60 seconds.

Is this normal or is there something wrong with my computer? On the vista loading screen with the green bar, it goes through about 22 cycles.

Answer:Slow Vistax64 Boot Time on New Computer

Did you upgrade from XP, or did you do a fresh install of Vista?
Upgrade installs typically import all the startups from the previous installation.
I don't recommend an upgrade installation as (IMO) it'll import everything - problems included.

Hi guys I just bought a lenovo sl510 with win 7 professional and the win 7 loads extremely slow (takes aout 4 minutes to boot up) and running programs is a chore I click on a program and it takes at least a minute to 2 minutes to load a normal program like explorer or firefox or even notepad.  I just bought this computer 3 weeks ago and it was like this before I installed virus scan software.I had to install a program called game booster which ends unneccesary processes and clears up ram. Using that is the only way I can get my sl510 thinkpad to run at acceptable speeds but even thenI still get the occasinal hang and the occasional lock up..I should note this issue of slow boots and slow running existed BEFORE I loaded anything onto it.. any ideas how to resolve this??I've defragmented my hard drive, ran a disk scan, virus scan, registry clean and spyware scan I've increased my paging file manually. and eliminated several unneccesary prgrams from startup process.  any other thoughts?? 













Solved!

Answer:sl510 slow boot slow load times

Hello Kamain, Have you been successful solving the slow response time issue? I face the same problem. While running the SL510 (2847, 6NG)  in safe mode (win7, 64) the performance is great. I am planning to stop each running process one by one. Thanks KM

Hi all,

I'm using an Intel SSD 240GB 520 series.
Always loading very fast, i.e., about 8 seconds from cold boot.

Since windows 10 is installed, boot time is about 20 seconds and desktop icons take some time to refresh and load their images.

Regarding the boot time:
I've narrowed it down the an unexplained read/write access on my external HDD eSATA which is used for backups, though currently all backup process are stopped.
When I remove / turn off my external HDD, boot time is about 8 seconds.
I can't figure out why all of a sudden it required this access to this HDD.

As for the slow icon refresh.. I have no idea how to fix this and I was hoping to get some assistance on this as well.
Thanks!

Answer:Slow boot time on SSD and slow Desktop icons loading

Sorry it's an old thread. Just wanted to re assure you on the slow icon refresh. Fast startup is enabled on my machine (I have Samsung evo SSD 500 gb as boot drive plus secondary 3TB drive). I never timed it but literally load up of Windows is instant after BIOS. I never used an SSD before, I can't believe how fast it is and wonder whether it's fast startup working some magic or it's the SSD flexing its muscles. However back on topic, I do notice a slight lag on desktop icon refresh. Most are instantly visible but random ones can be generic for a few seconds before flashing up with their proper icon. I think it's relatively normal.

Hi,

I'm running Win XP on a Q6600 Dell computer. i recently had some malware issues and had to do a safe reinstallation of windows (keeping my programs, but reinstalling windows).

my computer was back to normal, and running fine. average boot time <45 seconds.

Then, this monday, I turned on my computer. It seemed to Freeze on the boot screen, where you see the windows logo, and you see "Hit f2 or f12 to load BIOS or boot options".

I just let my computer sit there for 10 minutes. Finally, that screen disappeared, and i was greeted with a blank screen with a single hyphen on top.

After 10 minutes of that, the following screen appeared ...error. Please contact Dell."

10 minutes after that, Windows XP continued booting normally and i was able to access my computer. I can't tell you if anything else is going wrong, but so far, i have not noticed anything.

Basically, i haven't changed any settings or whatnot, and somehow my computer has went from 30 secs boot, to 30 minutes.

I have recently scanned Super spy ware, as well as malbytes, and i have tried hijackthis, and have run CC Cleaner.

Nothing out of the ordinary appeared.

Thanks

summary: Windows XP (SP3 + recent patches) boots up fast past the boot up slash screen and my desktop appears, but the system is unusable for a good 8 minutes at this point, the hard drive is chugging away.  The system is unresponsive until the chugging stops, I can't even open task manager to see how much CPU is being used.  After the system is usable Flash player performance is pretty poor, You Tube at smallest settings is choppy.
 
Hardware is not amazing but I have a lesser computer perform better.  Specs are: AMD X2 3800+, 3 gig ram, Geforce 7600GT
 
A friend of mine tried to tweak the system by changing the startup items and running ccleaner and a spyware remover.  This did not improve performance.

And the hard drive is always clicking. It sounds like its working very hard, and then it just gives up. Sometimes it freezes while I'm working. Other times, I'm done and want to turn it off, and it will not turn off. Ctl-Alt-Delete does not help. I have to turn off the power to unfreeze it. I know that is a bad thing to do, but its the only way I can get it going again.

And then it takes forever to get going again. And each task I want it to perform takes so long. I click and nothing happens. So I click again. Maybe I get it mixed up from extra clicking to get it to do something, so it freezes. If I wait... eventually it does what I want it to do. But clearly, things are not right. I definitely know there are way too many unnecessary things that load at start-up.

I run SpyBot, Ad-Aware, Registry Mechanic, and SpySweeper every day, and they always find stuff, but that doesn't solve the problem. I ran HijackThis and for 2 hrs I painstakingly went through every item, checking on forums and tech sites to see what was good and what was bad, figuring I could eliminate the bad things on my own. But then the system froze and I lost every thing I had checked when I had to reboot (by turning off the power.) I am not going to do that again! It'll be a much better use of my time to let you evaluate the log!

Answer:My system takes a long time to boot up, is extremely slow and freezes frequently

When I leave the computer on overnight, which I very often do, when I come back in the morning my sound codecs are gone. No sound device can be detected whatsoever. But device manager says all hardware is working properly. Neither disabling and re-enabling nor uninstalling and reinstalling help. Still no sound. If I reboot, it starts up again with sound intact.

I was also having a problem for awhile where the .wav volume kept turning itself off. I'd turn it back up and within an hour or so, it would be off again. So definitely overnight .wav would have the volume all the way down. So I couldn't tell the two problems apart at first. But I updated the driver on the Realtek '97 and I didn't have the problem with the .wav volume any more. Though every morning the sound is nowhere to be found.

Many settings reset themselves. Silly ones. On MSN Premium I have several different email addresses, and each one has a different display picture that I've chosen. But several times a week, when I come back to the computer in the morning, all the pictures have changed. Sometimes they've changed to all the same one, and sometimes they're the various ones I've chosen but all mixed up and associated to different user names.

Sometimes the desktop wallpaper is gone or different. And the same with the screensaver. Its sets itself to none or changes itself to a different one than the one I've selected.

I have recently run into problems with slow running programs. They take a long time to load and then run slowly. I ran through the instructions for spyware removal with no help.

I noticed than when I tried to run programs, the performance monitor shows Idle Processes at 99%.

The only thing I couldn't do was to run the online scans in safe mode. I found no viruses and only a couple of spywares. Everything appears clean.

The 3DMark2001SE ran smoothly. My system is as follows:

Family: <unknown>
Internal Clock: 802 MHz
Internal Clock Maximum: 2 GHz
External Clock: 0 Hz
Socket Designation: Socket 754

Total Physical Memory: 510 MB
Free Physical Memory: 257.07 MB
Total Pagefile Memory: 1.47 GB

I am close to running a clean install of XP but would lose quite a bit of captured video if I do.

If posting a hijackthis log would help, let me know.

Thanks for your help.

Answer:Programs Running Slow and Slow Boot Times

what i'd suggest to you is to defragment your hard drive regularly.you may also need a good internet and windows clutter cleaner. there are good programs out the like east-tec eraser pro, window washer v6.0 and privacy eraser pro. what i like about these programs is that the do not only clean unecessary files on your computer but they also clean your hard drives free space and file slack. there are also freebies out there like free internet eraser and c-cleaner. what you also need to do is check that there are no unecessary programs starting up with windows because they can be resource hogs. On your start menu double click on the run icon and type in msconfig and uncheck the programs you feel you do not need to start up with windows. you also need an optimising utility such as norton system works and fix-it utilities to help you safely remove unecessary registry entries, to speed up your hard drive and benchmark your pc. if you want an in depth conversation regarding these suggestions please don't hesitate to send me a private messege

This is a friend's computer. He says (and I can confirm) that is is slow and unresponsive to a nearly debilitating degree. It is a Sony VAIO running Windows Vista 32-Bit.

An Avast scan turned up one infected file, C:/Windows/MEMORY.DMP that was "successfully deleted," but Avast also says that there is/was a virus running in the memory, and that a boot-time scan was necessary. After multiple attempts, the computer just skips any boot-time scan and goes straight to boot-up.

I do not have access to a windows boot disk/install cd. If absolutely necessary I may be able to procure a burned .iso, but not an official one.

Thank you for your time.

Hi everyone, this is my first post. I'll try to be thorough and not leave out any details.

My computer began acting very strange a few weeks ago after I input the wrong key trying to register Word 2007. I tried to uninstall Word and thats when my PC seemed to begin crumbling on me. My conputer began freezing and taking between 20 minutes and an hour to boot up. I used a recovery partition on my laptop which I believe is supposed to basically wipe your computer back to the day that you first loaded it up.

It seems to have done that, but I'm still being plagued by problems here and there. My computer still takes over 5 minutes to boot up, and it is having difficulty loading the fixpack for my Realtek speakers to fix the sound (without that update the speakers are ridiculously quiet).

My computer also seems to freeze up or randomly restart itself sometimes. It also has trouble installing all of the updates for Windows Update.

Up till this point I really hadn't had any problems with my computer, now it just seems like its giving up.

My PC is a MSI A6200. It has got an I5 processor, 2.3ghz. Also has 4gb RAM, running windows 7 32 bit home premium. The graphics card is just an intel graphics media accellerator HD.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there some sort of log program that I should be posting up as well? If there's any other info I can provide I certainly will do so.

Thanks,

Peter

Answer:Computer seems to be a mess, random restarts, slow boot time.

Hello Peter and welcome to Seven Forums.

My usual disclaimer: I'm not an expert at anything. Having said that there are a couple of things that come to mind. You said you used the recovery partition to return your machine to factory specs (just like the day you got it.) Did the recovery partition include SP1? Did you let Windows Update automatically install all the available updates? I've found that if the recovery partition does NOT include SP1 it's best to install it first and then manually install any other updates just a few at a time. By doing a few at a time (maybe 5 or 10) and keeping track of their KB numbers, if there's a problem you'll know which 5 or 10 updates to uninstall. Then reinstall them one at a time. If they all install OK, go on to the next group. If one or more don't install correctly just ignore them for the time being and go to the next group. Yes, it's a slower process but usually results in a cleaner installation.

For right now, unless you want to use the recovery partition again and start over, you could try running a System File Checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two this tutorial.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

It doesn't seem to be too bad, but I have a bad feeling about the way my computer is booting. As if something else is starting up with my regular programs. Just had a strange issue with my whole computer freezing right after start up, rebooted twice and it's better, but I don't like having bad feelings. Please help? I'm really unsure of whats wrong

Answer:Computer acting strangely..slow boot/ freezing programs?

Hello Reinbao I have some advices for you, need few basic cleaning tools like Dr Web cleaning tool , or Kaspersky virus cleaning tool , run them both in Safe Mode .... run them both if you find bugs delete them and reboot your pc , your pc should work faster , install a better antivirus and firewall , use also a router with firewall to stop botnets and hackers , My sugestions are COMODO free firewall and ESET NOD 32 antivirus ... good luck

The symptom is that it takes a LONG time for the internet connection icon to appear in the tray, until which time I can't access the internet; NOR does firefox run, until the icon appears. So, if I don't wait for the LAN connection to load and just try to run firefox, it will not appear at all, until ten-fifteen minutes later when the the LAN connection finally loads, then firefox opens. It's interesting that firefox doesn't just open immediately when prompted, and say that there is no internet access. It just waits for the LAN connection to load, before it runs, for like 10 minutes. The 10 minute wait is not caused by me trying to run firefox before all services are running, if I don't touch the machine at all until the LAN icon appears I still have to wait 10 minutes. I guess if I was an IT guy, that would be a tell-tale sign of something, but I have no clue.

Also, while XP is trying to establish the LAN connection, the task bar at the bottom of the screen freezes up, but I can open "My Computer" screen using the desktop icon and browse files, listen to music, etc. while the taskbar is frozen for 10 min or so.

That said. The card works, but the connection takes a long time to load up on XP. I've never had this issue before. Can it have something to do with the order services are being loaded?

Hi new to these forums and I'm hoping someone can help me out here.

I formated my HDD and did a clean install (W7 7100 build) but I'm noticing slow boot times and slow performance compared to Vista x64. W7 boots at least 10secs slower and programs tend to lag (aren't as snappy compared to Vista).

The only reason I can think of that is causing this are driver issues? I didn't install any drivers manually besides my videocard driver.

Any help would be great, and please refrain from telling me your windows 7 is faster than your old OS, that's great to hear but it won't solve anything.

Thanks!

Answer:W7 Slow Boot Time and Overall Slow performance

The only thing that really stands out as being 'possibly' problematic is the video card you have. Drivers are available from ATI (9.4) but are experimental under Win7. Otherwise, your system should sing along quite nicely and, yes, even see an improvement over Vista.

You *could* try using the WDDM1.1 drivers from Microsoft. They're not as effecient as the 9.4 Catalysts for my HD4870x2's but they're not 'laggy', either.

It's pretty unanimous the W7 boots considerably faster than Vista. Yours should, too.

Running xp pro, 1 gig memory, 160 gig hard drive partitioned. Takes about 8-10 minutes to boot. Sometimes the programs will start

right up and then at other times the hard drive runs like something else is running for quite a while before the program starts.

Have run reg. mechanic, reg cure, pc on point, ccleaner, etc but it still happens. Task manage doesn't show anything strange running. No

viruses or spyware. Think something might be starting but can't find out what.

Hi everyone,
Since few months (it's getting worse), my computer is getting very slow..
First, the booting is very slow, it takes several minutes from the moment I press the "button" to the mment I can finally launch a program.
Then, the pc is globally very slow: launching an app will take too long. Starting Photoshop will take longer than starting it on a laptop (not a power machine).
The pc is slow in pretty much everything.
I already disabled every program in the boot list, scanned for adwares, etc and ran softwares to get rid of them...
PC is running Windows 7, Norton.
I have been looking for a solution for months.
Thank you (also forgive my poor english please, i'm not a native english speaker).

Answer:Slow boot, slow programs lauching...

The easiest way, and it'll save a lot of troubleshooting time, is to save your data on an external hd and revert to factory settings. This will format and reload W7. I'd advise getting rid of Nortons which is a resource hog and use Avast free.

I've seen some "solutions" but cannot get it to work. Some suggested solutions were to use task scheduler yet that didn't start up the program. For some reason it seems like Windows 8 doesn't respond to putting a shortcut in the startup folder

I've been having some very slow system issues today and have checked that system resources seem to be at normal levels - CPU usage at around 20% and Memory usage at around 50% during normal operating.

However I have noticed a new icon in my system tray which I can't identify, can't click on, and has no text when I hover over it. Can anyone recognise it? It looks like a grey/silver square or box with something green on it - no idea what it's trying to represent

Does anyone know what it represents?

Sorry for all the trouble.. I have been experiencing this problem for nearly a weeks now. I own one of the t400 thinkpad notebook. However, after 2 weeks of using the applications such as visual studio and VMware, i noticed the amount of time the system tray at the bottom right hand side of the screen starts to load at a longer time, approximately 2 minutes. After waiting, the laptop resume to normal function and everything starts to speed up. I am using windows vista home premium. By the way, i have checked and run the virus software and everything seems to be fine, as in.. there are no worms, spyware or adware hidden. I really need my laptop running in full speed as time is important to any MAN! Thanks and hope anyone out there can help solve this problem.  Moderator note: Type added to subject line for clarity Message Edited by Agotthelf on 26-04-2009 08:37 AM

Answer:T400: Slow system tray startup

I have the same problem on a t400 vista 64 business oem. Everything loads up immediately, including my anti-virus software and my firewall along with a small amount of other software. However, what I noticed was the two programs that take a surprisingly long time is rm clock and the battery bar on the power manager. Rm clock comes out first after roughly 2 minutes, then after another minute the battery bar pops up. Surprisingly the processor isn't running at full clock but rather at the minimum too so its not even that there is any heavy intensive processing going on.

Answer:slow load time/run time, something's weird

To give a little more info on the symptoms...

When I open my browser (usually Firefox, occasionally IE) it takes several seconds (15 - 20) to open a window. Sometimes nothing will happen for 30 or so seconds and I'll need to click on my browser again, at which point when the browser opens, all the broswers open that I clicked on. In other words, if I click on the browser 3 or 4 times because it wasn't opening, when it finally opens, there are 3 or 4 windows open at the same time.

Next problem, when I click on a link to go to another site, nothing happens for several seconds, then eventually the new page will be displayed.

The time between clicking on a link to when the new page opens is ridiculously slow.

Thanks for all the help.

Hello Tech Support Forum,

My computer has some peculiar issues I've been noticing. When I leave my computer on for more than four hours and try to shutdown, sometimes my desktop will completely disappear except for the wallpaper and momentarily reappear. If I have program system tray icons, they will disappear as well but the programs are still running in the system tasks window (Trillian, Winamp, etc.)

Another issue I have is slow shutdowns. When I do shut down, I occaisionally have to wait 40 seconds to two minutes before the computer turns off. Before I shut down I always use Eraser to shred my temporary internet files and temporary cache.

Before I ran hijackthis I used McAfee's free online scan along with Pandascan's. Everything is updated on Windows XP SP2 including all critical updates.

Some programs are becoming slow to load or do not recognize their connection to a file extension. Most noticeable are Nitro PDF Professional which doesn't always start when I click on a PDF file, sometimes it does, some times it doesn't. Quicken is often slow to start, some times the window opens then it waits for the display, sometimes the there is a wait until the window even opens. Same for xplorer2 opening and even selecting another folder. Going back to Windows 7 with almost the identical installed programs/utilities (about 40) the "problem" goes away.

What are the causes and solutions?

Answer:Some Programs Slow to Load

I dunno, I use Quicken 2010, it always pops right open. What programs are loading when the computer starts? If you have certain AV programs, it may be performing extra monitoring on the exe files you are clicking on, before allowing them to start.

Many times a slow comp has been attributed to not enough RAM, as your computer seems pretty basic :cool lol. Anyway, take a look here. It details removing programs you don't need, how to free up some precious space:drool, etc.

If it still doesn't work, either install more memory RAM cards if you're comfortable, or get a new computer:-D. (I didn't mention the cheap part)

i hope that someone can help please

i had already posted this in the incorrect forum

A friend of mine is having all sorts of problems with his computer
with programmes being very slow to open
sometimes taking anywhere from 5-15 minutes to load

Sometimes the only way to make it open is to select shut down the computer
and when the options are given, he chooses.. cancel

He has run all the up to date virus scans

and is currently only usingAVG, and the only firewall is Filsecab.
So hes unsure if he can delete the old scan programmes and firewalls if hes not using them

Please find below a copy of his hijack log

we thankyou in anticipation of any help

Hi, I have a Dell Latitude D600, it gets as far as the desktop background picture, then take 5 -7 minutes to load the programs. I have deleted all the non essential start up programs, done a Spybot scan, Clean the registry, done threedefrags, now no fragments. I am rather old and this has me stumped and growing more grey hairs by the day. Can anyone help, please.

Hi everyone, I recently had a terrible root kit virus get into my computer that I built recently and I had to get it taken care of at my local shop due to not being able to access my drives or anything. The computer is now fully operational again and going just as strong as it was before the virus got in, except for two things.

The virus shut my computer off before I could even figure out what was going on. So I turned my computer on to right notice that my motherboard was loading extraordinarily slow. I have a 990FXA-GD80 motherboard made by MSI. The Motherboard usually loads within seconds and I'm at the Windows logo. I have an SSD for my OS and then a 1TB for files.

I'm just trying to figure out why the motherboard is so slow now, I will wait for around 15-20 seconds alone just trying to get passed the initial post codes that the motherboard reads on start up before even seeing my splash screen for my motherboard. I also can't seem to even access my BIOS anymore, I've tried every single F key possible, but nothing.

Answer:Slow Motherboard Load Time

Dig you try the del key. Below text is from the manual.
Press DEL to enter Setup Menu, F11 to enter Boot Menu
If the message disappears before you respond and you still wish to enter Setup, restart
the system by turning it OFF and On or pressing the RESET button. You may also restart
the system by simultaneously pressing <Ctrl>, <Alt>, and <Delete> keys.
Have you tried the Bios reset?

Hello my pc spec are:

O.S-Win7 32bits
Micro-AMD Athlon Dual Core 4050e 2.1ghz
RAM-2gb DDR2
G.Card-ATI Radeon 2400PRO 256MB DDR2
HDD-SATA-II WDC 500GB

And all the games i play have a really slow slow load time, compared it with my friend Notebook wich have similar spec and it load 3 time faster than mine.
Once inside the game it go ok, but i thing it could be faster too. The main problem is the load time, what could be the cause of it?

Answer:Slow load time on all games.

Check in Task Manager...Processes tab to see what's loading. Compare this to your friend's system to see what the differences are.

Also, try this to see what's slowing things down:

Quote:




Task Manager:
Also, you can monitor the system for excessive resource consumption. To do this, open up Task Manager by right clicking on the Task Bar.
Then select the Processes tab.
Then select the "Show processes from all users" button (in the lower left)
Then select the View menu item, then select "Select columns"
In the Select columns window, place checkmarks next to I/O Reads and I/O Other.
Click OK to accept the changes.
Resize the Task Manager window so you can see the most of the columns.
Wait for the system to freeze.
Look at all of the columns to see if there's anything that looks excessively high - if so, let us know the Image name of the process.
FWIW - System Idle Process is supposed to have high CPU readings - anything else with high CPU readings is an issue.

Overall, computer is running slow and IE takes forever to load. I recently was hit with malware that I am assuming was effectively removed by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware because I scanned today and it came up clean. Have also been hit with Bo-heap warning in my AV recently, but it seems to come and go. I recently cleaned up my hard drive, removed unecessary programs and files and defragged in order to free up space; still cannnot tell much of a difference.

I started with problem here: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-8/1089279-solved-video-hang-up-new.html which I think was handled well.

In the process of installing the new hardware, a couple concerning things happened. I had a tough time getting the 24 pin PSU-mb connector in and I feared damaging the connector on the mb side. I also had trouble with routing the SATA power supply cords to the hard drives, and had to pinch the connectors pretty tight against the wires they were connected to to squeeze them through parts of the frame inside. They are not squeezed in their connected position however.

But everything seemed to work great for a while. Both my new video card and PSU seemed to help my system. But after a while I started noticing things were getting slow, clicks not registering, any web browser locking up frequently. The problem got a little worse over time and now things load incredibly slow, though when they load they can run smoothly for a bit of time and then abruptly freeze again. Startup often takes a minute and shutdown can take sometimes more then 10. I often have to press the power button on the case due to a locked up program and then wait a very long time.

I checked my sensors with 2 different programs and they both show me consistently getting 2.128 volts on the 3.3 rail. I went back to my old vid card to see if the problem was the new one all along, no luck. I tried disconnecting and reconnecting all the PSU connectors, still no luck.
