A:Hijack this log, Comp running very slowly

Hi!
My computer is just running incredibly slowly - everything from loading/operating programs to loading pages online...It is Windows XP. I would love your help if you could take a look!
Thank you

More replies

I am trying to figure out what is killing my parents computer. I know they need more RAM, but this is ridiculous....10-15 seconds gaps between switching pages. Some programs are for the grandkids, and I just went through and removed a lot of programs from the add/remove.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

OK, my computer has been running very slowly over the last couple of years. I took it to someone to fix but the computer is still running rather slowly. I'm not sure if there is a virus, or if any programs that are installed on it are conflicting.

Also I'm not sure if it is worth mentioning, but the person who worked on the computer either split the hard disk into two (a C and a D drive) or added a D drive in addition to the C. Both C and D have stuff on them.

I was looking at a youtube video of how to use HJT and it said to checkmark everything and hit fix; my computer was running perfectly fine 2 weeks ago with games running at 30 fps and really little lag but suddenly has been running extremely slow with long wait times and 2 fps so i decided to follow the video. After hitting fix everything my computer seems to be running a bit better but i'm not exactly sure if anything has been fixed. Now my concern is: should i restore back to before i 'fixed' everything? or should i leave it alone since it seems to have improved a bit and i cant find anything wrong yet

when i close out of firefox the cpu for the process firefox.exe goes immediately to 99% and will usually cause my computer to freeze unless i end the process instead of closing firefox normally.
when i close out of steam games, my computer will run slower than usual, even if i end all processes related to steam. my computer will stay at this slowed speed untill i restart my computer.

here is my HJT log, if any other information is needed please tell me.

Hi there, thanks for viewing this.

Recently, my internet explorer 7 and firefox has been running quite slowly. After googling a bit, I found out that this problem could be caused by the iexplore.exe virus.

Many iexplore.exe was running in the processes tab of the Windows task manager when my internet browsers were not in use. This may have caused the slowness.

I have a logfile of TrendMicro's Hijackthis v2.0.2:

Hi and welcome to TSF.

My name is Iain and I will be helping you clean your system.

Please read these instructions carefully and then print out or copy this page to Notepad in order to assist you when carrying out the fix. You should not have any open browsers or live internet connections when you are following the procedures below.

Note that the fix may take several posts. Please continue to respond to my instructions until I confirm that your logs are clean. Remember that although your symptoms may vanish, this does NOT mean that your system is clean.

If there is anything you don't understand, please ask BEFORE proceeding with the fixes.

Please ensure that you follow the instructions in the order I have them listed.

Please do not install or uninstall any programmes, or run any other scanners or software, unless I specifically ask you to do so. Also please copy and paste logs into the thread, rather than add them as attachments.

I'd like to see a Gmer log please.

Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here to your desktop. It will be a randomly named executable.Before scanning, make sure all other running programs are closed and no other actions like a scheduled antivirus scan will occur while the scan is being performed. Do not use your computer for anything else during the scan.
Double click the exe file.

I noticed this issue a little while back. As I shutdown/restart my laptop, I notice it switches to a secondary desktop that has been running programs.
A good example would be trying to open my Task Manager, I can Ctrl-Alt-Del and it will allow me to open Task Manager - however when I click on Task Manager, it opens on the Desktop running in the background.
I can't even access the Desktop in the background, it only shows up as I'm shutting down - closing programs that I tried opening awhile ago.

I really hope this makes sense.. it's getting frustrating.

A:Two desktops running at the same time. Background programs running.

It sounds like you have a virtual desktop.

This is not something that could 'just happen' in Windows 7. You would need to install a third party program to do this.

So if you did not install anything that might add virtual desktop capability, or this is not a situation where you inherited or obtained this computer from someone else and are not quite sure what is installed on it, then I would suggest first running virus and malware scans to start.

1. My computer keeps on freezing up on me, and I don't even have many programs running. When my computer finally starts up, I log onto windows, and it takes seriously two or three minutes for windows to load; two weeks ago it took 20-30 seconds for windows to load. When windows finally loads, and I click on a program (ie.

I was referred to this forum because apparently I posted this in the wrong place. I apolgize for that. However regardless , I am so annoyed at this situation you have no idea. I ran adwcleaner, and all the tools I ran in the past from another problem I had with booting up. Still the pesky problem persists, once in a while I get someone talking on my computer with ads, once in a while... IE wants to know if you want to leave this page or stay on it,, Update Flash player.. and more. I run the cleaning tools and within a couple weeks there it is again.

I cannot find IE anywhere on my system so where in the world is it coming from.. When I upgraded from windows ?  Did it get burried someplace?

Anyhow I want it off my computer..

This is an Azus Laptop Model U52f
I am running windows 10 for a few months now
I use Chrome or Firefox as my browser
I have a pentium 4
and my info is on my profile as to what motherboard etc.

Thank you

A:Running windows and cannot stop IE from running in background

Have you set a browser as the default browser? That's my first thought as to why you keep seeing IE mentioned. The
talking ads are a different issue and will likely require use of tools not allowed in this forum to find and remove.

Here is a link for info on setting Firefox as the default browser in Windows 10. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see this:
Make Firefox your default browser | Firefox Help

Use the Settings app in Windows 10 to change your default browser
Alternatively, you can open the Settings App from the Windows 10 Start menu to set Firefox as the default browser:
Go to the Windows Start menu and click the Settings icon.
Click System, then choose Default Apps on the left pane.
Scroll down and click the entry under Web browser.

Click on Firefox in the dialog that opens with a list of available browsers.

Firefox is now listed as your default browser. Close the Settings window to save your changes.
Note: To change your default to another browser, see the support documentation for that other browser.

Hi. My computer has been running much slower than normal. When you open a new window or even try to select a user from the first screen, it really takes its time. Even once the window is open, you can still hear the wheels turning inside the box like it is really struggling to run its basic operating system. When you type something into a web page text box, there is a lag from when I press the key to when the letter shows up.

I have Windows XP and an AMD processor (I don't know which one).

Thanks

Hey,

Recently, I received a message from the windows firewall about a wuaudit.exe and I blocked it. Now, I can barely go to websites or download anything, much less post in this forum. I have used spyware search and destroy which did not remedy the problem.

Hi
My PC has recently slowed to a crawl - historically has run fast, but lately very slow. E.g, when I open a Word or Excel document, from clicking on open to file opening is about 12 seconds, where it used to be almost instant. Very frustrating!
I have looked in Process Explorer & can't really see anything too horrendous. I have a couple of programmes that use SQL server, and have, this afternoon, killed that process, with no increase in speed.
Am running Win XP Pro SP3 with 3GB RAM. Am wondering if there is a memory problem as I have also recently been unable to run some programmes together, which have in the past run fine - e.g. CorelDraw 10 & Page Plus X4 (Plus, if I have either of them open I can't open a pdf file.)

A:Win XP running slowly

15 more replies

Hi guys

I wonder if anyone can help.

My PC (HP Compaq Pentium 4 3.00GHz with 1GB RAM) is running XP Pro with SP2.

It boots up pretty fast, and runs well after that. I work from home and so typically use it for up to 10 hours a day, using apps like Firefox, MS Office, Skype, etc nothing too intensive.

The problem is that after a couple of hours all the apps start running really slowly. I reboot and the machine runs great again.

I loaded the free Comodo firewall a month or so back but I'm convinced this started in the last 2 weeks. Yesterday I run a Spybot S&D and also malwarebytes anti-malware scan but this had made no difference.

I've got another 1GB of RAM on order and this will help but I think there may be another underlying problem.

Any ideas ?

Hello,

I have been having a number of problems with my laptop in the past day, the most recent being that it is running very slowly. I will start with the problems that i had before this and how i fixed them.

Last night I was not able to boot past the windows splash screen without being greeted by a BSOD. It indicated that a driver was preventing windows from being started. I searched this driver and saw that it was related to the program Daemon Tools Lite. I booted in to safe mode and removed this program, which allowed me to get to my desktop.

I did notice however, that despite being able to get on to my desktop now, It took an unusually long time to load past the spash and login screens. Once on my desktop, everything was running very slowly. Applications took a very long time to process and open, and even something as simple as a right click has a significant delay before bringing up the menu. Upon testing programs i learned that trying to interact with Google Chrome in any way (including attempting to uninstall) would result in my computer freezing and having to be hard reset. So once again I booted into safemode and removed then reinstalled Google Chrome. It no longer freezed my computer, but it has not solved the slow problem.

So just to summarize, everything is running very slowly regardless of how many processes are currently open. This includes trying to open programs, windows files and menus/taskbar. When ... Read more

Hi Alan and welcome to TSF.

My name is Iain and I will be helping you clean your system.

There's nothing showing in your log. The only interesting this is QuickTime appears to be installed at your root drive rather than Program Files - is that correct?

Let's try an online scan.

Establish an internet connection & perform an online scan with Internet Explorer at Kaspersky WebScanner

Next Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner

A Welcome screen will appear - click 'Accept' at the bottom. You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:
Now click on Scan Settings
In the scan settings make that the following are selected:
Scan using the following Anti-Virus database: Extended
Scan Options:Scan Archives
Scan Mail Bases
Click OK

Now under select a target to scan: Select My ComputerThis will program will start and scan your system.
The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
Now click on the Save as Text button:Save the file to your desktop.
Copy and paste that information in your next post.
Take note of the name(s) and location(s) of any file(s) it detects but fails to clean.

* Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan

Post back with the Kaspersky log.

Just want someone to take a look see and let me know what problems I may have. It appears any browser I use starts up very slowly it may take several minutes. When it does finally open it hangs...the frames appears then it sits for quite some time before it finally loads the page. Browsing with IE is hit and miss for the most part it takes forever to open the page. When I use Safari once it loads it seems to browse pretty well only hanging once in a while. IE now has been not completely loading e.g. my favorites icon is there but just a black box with no text, my tab bar is blacked out exept for the tabs with no red close X. I got a blue screen of death appear and had a reboot last time i opened it. I got McAfee from my ISP and found a bunch of malware/spyware. Any suggestion or solutions would be helpful. Thanks in advance for the help.

Hello Seedman,

You currently have 2 Anti Virus programs installed. While it may seem to be added protection for you, more than 1 Anti Virus can cause conflicts and confusion between the AV programs as well as system instability. Please choose and run only 1 and uninstall the other via the Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

Perform an online scan with Internet Explorer with Panda ActiveScan Click on located at the bottom of the page.
A "pop up" window will appear. * Please ensure that your pop up blocker doesn't block it *
Enter your e-mail address, country, and state & click "Free Online Scan" *The download of the 8 MB Panda's ActiveX control will take place*
Begin the scan by selecting If it finds any malware, it will offer you a report.
Please ignore any entry it finds and the offer to buy the program to remove the entry, as we will address this later.
Click on then click
* You needn't remain online while it's doing the scan but you have to re-connect after it has finished to see the report.
* Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Run a new scan with HijackThis and save the log.

My PC has been progressivly running slower, but particularly since I changed over from Norton to McAfee software. When I run the tool procexp.exe, it shows Mcshield.exe dominating CPU time and when I kill this process, programs speed up markedly

Recent sequence of events has been:
- Uninstalled Norton and then installed McAfee antivirus & firewall software
- Deleted (stupidly) remaining files containing references to symantec, norton & nav (made backups before deleting)
- re-installed McAfee antivirus & firewall software (with some improvement in speed)
- followed the proceedure in 'Hello and Welcome to the TechSupportForum'
'what to do before you post a log...'
- set Ad-ware preferences and ran
- ran 'trend micro' virus scan
- ran Hijackthis (log file attached)
- ran Hijack This Analyser (report attached)

Mcshield.exe still dominates CPU time. Boot up time currently ~ 2 1/2 min

Would appreciate help on how can speed up programs

Hi rmc and welcome to TSF! Please copy/paste your logs in here, thanks.

Welp, the logs look pretty clean of malware. I will make a couple quick recommendations. When your reboot at end and reply, copy/paste a HJT full log this time, not the analyzed version. May move your thread over to the XP forum for follow-up.

============

The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download CleanUp! (Alternate Link if main link don't work) and install it. Run CleanUp! and click on CleanUp! button. When it asks you if you want to logoff, click on Yes.

Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following and hit 'Fix checked' (after checking them) if they still exist (make sure not to miss any):

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [KernelFaultCheck] %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k
O23 - Service: SymWMI Service - Unknown - C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\Security Center\SymWSC.exe (file missing)

Reboot into Normal Mode and let us know if any help.

I've tried disabling processes in Task Manager and the only one I've found that helps (doesn't cure it completely) is spoolsv.exe (found in C:/i386). It seems to keep coming back, although it could be a legitimate file. I renamed it to spoolsv.BAK in the i386 file and that has not been changed. I'm using (as you can see in the logs) MS Security Essentials and firewall. I've also run Malwarebytes, but nothing has detected anything viral.

Hey,

I am running the original day of defeat which requires less than 1Ghz of speed and I am using a laptop with a dual core 2.2Ghz and when I run the game I get 10FPS. My mate is running the same game with a single core 1.6Ghz processor and getting 60FPS we are using the exact same graphic settings and screen size so this makes little sense. The only difference is that he uses xp and I use Vista home premium 32bit SP1

My system specs are:
dual core 2.2Ghz
2Gb RAM
358mb Intel Graphic Media Acellerator
160GB HDD

This is the ACER ASPIRE 5720 Notebook

When I run CPUZ it states I am running at 1600MHZ not close the the 2.2GHz advertised.

I also updated all the drivers as well and defrag and virus scan regularly

Hi techguys.

I recently added verizon DSL to my computer (two weeks ago) and everything worked fine up until yesterday.
All of a sudden, my web pages are loading pretty slow (dial up speed) and it takes a lot longer than usual for me to download things. I just tried to download a 2mb file, and it took almost two minutes.
Also, when I try to watch music videos, they often freeze.

As I said, these problems are new, and I have no idea what's causing them.
I constantly clear my cache and delete my temporary files, but it isn't helping.

I haven't turned off my computer in a few days, but I did restart it yesterday; could that be the source of my problem?

I'm running on a Dell Dimension 4550
Windows xp SP1

Thank you, any help is much appreciated.

Hi, my Pc every day starts running really slowly like it is virus checking (although I have set the check and backup to 2am), I can hear the processor clicking away as though it is being stretched and quite often I get a notification to say the PC is low on memory and to close programs, it seems to happen for about an hour twice a day. How do I find out what it causing it to run slow, I am assuming its a background task scheduled each day?
Thanks

My internet connection drops all the times, and sometimes it lags alot. My roommates all seem to get a better, more consistent connection. We run a wireless 802.11b.

I was wondering if this could be a result of any malware so i ran HJT, again.

If not malware is there anything you suggest to trouble shoot the problem.

Hello all,

I am wondering if someone may be able to help me. My PC has been running very slowly the last few weeks now and it is getting very irritating.

I have scanned it with AVG antivirus, Scanned with Spybot S&D, and adaware. I have also ran Ace Utilities to clean up registry etc. All to apparantly no avail.
I have since downloaded HJT and include the logfile below. Can someone please decipher and see if there is anything in there that looks a bit dodgy?

Hello,

My Laptop is running slowly. I've followed all the steps outlined in the "Is your PC running slow...?" These steps seem to have helped quite a bit, but I want to make sure I don't have any malware installed.

I've followed the steps to get the logs as detailed in the "NEW INSTRUCTIONS..." post for malware removal first posting. Please find my dds.txt copy/pasted below and attach.zip, including attach.txt and ark.txt, attached.

Unfortunately, I do not know if there is any infection, nor can I describe any issues other than slow performance.

Thanks,
Heezea

A friend's PC was running slowly so I have uninstalled all the old programs they no longer use, stopped the start up of those they don't need to run at start up. I also ran adaware to clear up anything, nothing really meaningful found.

The performance does seem to be a little better but wonder if someone could have a look at the HJT log to see if anything jumps out at them as it shouldn't be there. Thanks

It requires a 1.2ghz processor, which i thought I was fine with. It said its running at 598mhz performance rated at 897mhz. Could someone tell me if I can change something in bios? I went to the setup menu and couldnt find cpu speed. Thanks! Max

Hi,
I have a Siemens Scaleo P Pentium 4 3.4mhz computer with 512mb Ram, 149GB hard drive and have used 84.4GB, so there's plenty of free space. Over a period of time this has gradually slowed down, to the point where it can take 15 minutes or more before I can have a browser open and working. It's got to the point of fix it or bin it . Occasionally I do get a low memory warning. I recently bought PCTools Registry Mechanic and Spyware Doctor - but these made little or no difference. Registry Mechanic tells me that my system is slow,but does not seem to be able to improve it .
Sometimes when I boot up the system it will not start, and I have to switch it off and start again, other times the mouse will not work - if I do ctrl-alt-del then the mouse will work but I cannot use any buttons on the bottom bar, including the start button - I have to shut it down through task manager.

Having looked through other peoples suffering of slow computers, I see that often a request to run Hijackthis is made, so I have taken the liberty to run this already - details below.

Thanks in advance to anyone who will provide help and guidance to me.

I am hoping someone can help me out. My boyfriend got a new HP notebook with Windows 7 home 64x. It has been running fine for about a month.

On Saturday he had the laptop on and was browsing his usual websites (nothing new) when suddenly the PC slowed down to a standstill.

It runs terribly slow when opening any apps and then suddenly runs as normal, then its back to being slow (it is more often slow than not) I have run a scan to check for viruses (just a quick one as it take so long!!!) I am trying to download some security pdates but nothing is happening.

I did check the CPU usage and it is normally about 3%, sometimes peaking at 13% when I first open a program.

Does anyone have any advice? I don't want to try things blindly as the system is so slow each thing takes 5x as long as usual.

A:OS is running VERY slowly!!!

The first thing that I would do is run an antivirus scan, as you did, and then download and run malwarebytes.

This may turn up negative, but even the common sites like google can cause problems. These "people" that write virus etc are very proficient at what they do.

About 5 days ago while Windows was loading I got a bluescreen error message (I have my computer set to restart straight away when this happens so I don't know what the message was). It kept restarting and restart and I had no idea what was wrong, I tried booting in safe mode but it kept restart once it got to MUP.SYS.

I used my boot disk to run a disk check which seemed to fix the error, now my computer is running very slowly and my CPU usage is very high even while my computer is running idle.

Attached is my HijackThis scan log. I hope someone can identify the error

Hey guys, I'm back again with another problem, I think. Browsing webpages seems to be a little slower than normal and I'm laggin out on Xbox Live. Is there a form of Adware, spyware or malaware that can interfere with my bandwidth? Oh yeah, Norton Antivirus said it fround a trojan today, but was unable to delete it so I felt it was time for another checkup. Heres my log

Greetings, and welcome to TSF!

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. If you have Windows XP, the search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

===============

Go to Add/Remove programs and remove(uninstall) the following, if present:

Viewpoint Manager

The above could appear anywhere within the entry. Be careful not to remove any personal or system software.

Run HiJackThis then:

A:Solved: XP Running very slowly

Hello Tech Support Forum Analysts -

Sorry for posting without this information the other day. Below you'll find the DDS report and attached the other two files you've asked for. The problem is that the computer is running ridiculously slow. If I open an Internet Explorer window, it'll take 2-3 minutes for the window to open and then if I click to type in a new web address, the computer will freeze for a minute or two before allowing me to enter the address. It's a continual cycle like this. Additionally, the problem gets worse the longer the computer is on. If I turn the computer on, it works much faster than an hour or two later.

Also, some programs have disappeared from the computer. These were programs I had installed in the past that my Mother does not know how to uninstall, like Microsoft Office and certain icons on the desktop.

I just installed AVG anti virus thinking there was a virus that was causing all of these problems, and that made the system run even slower.

Thanks,
Sara

Hello everyone,I've been having many problems with my laptop. When I click on something, it takes sometimes up to 3-4 minutes for it to process and whenever I try to shut it down or restart it lots of dialog boxes pop up asking me to end processes now because they are not responding.I tried to follow all the steps before running the Hijack This log but it's frustrating being on my computer for more than fifteen minutes because it usually freezes and then I have to start all over again! Please help! I was able to install and run Spybot S&D, and I already have Spyware Doctor and ran that. Thank you to anyone who can help me.

A:My Computer Is Running Really Slowly

Welcome to the BleepingComputer forum. We are currently studying your log and will have instructions for you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

I've been having a slow experience with my computer for the past while. It used to be pretty quick at loading and booting up in Windows and running games and everything, but now a days its starting to become somewhat sluggish. My computer is 4 years old so I'm aware that that could be a factor in its performance, but I also know that it could still keep up in gaming and such if a few things were corrected. Examples of issues I notice are slow boot times into Windows (part where its at the blue windows loading screen), somewhat slow shutdown time, slow time to load up tray icons (MSN, Firewall, Anti Spyware, Volume Control, ect), sluggish performance in games in terms of framerate even with settings at minimum (aware this may be a video card issue), slow load time when opening applications like My Computer for the first time. I was just looking for some insight and feedback to see what some people, experienced with this issue, may give in order to get my computer back running the way it used to be.

CPU: Intel Pentium 4, 3200Mhz (16x200)
RAM: 2048MB (PC3200 DDR SDRAM)
OS: Windows XP Home (SP3)

Anti-Virus Software: Comodo Internet Security 3.5..54375.427

K, I'm new to this whole hijack thing lol but lately my computer has been running really really slowly, I mean it takes like 10 minutes just to start AOL and this problem just occurred recently, anyways I ran a program called Security Task Manager to see if I could come up with any processes running that I did not know about and do alittle research on them to see if they were causing any problems. Could someone look at my log file and tell me if theres anything I need to fix to make my computer run alot faster then what it's doing now? Thanks!:)

Oh yea, there was another process that was running called mainiis.exe but I ended the process and quarantined it but when I went back to put it back on it said that another one was already running at the time and it wouldn't let me overwrite it so I'm not sure... Thanks guys!

I was hoping I could get some help removing excess programs from my girlfriend's PC. It's starting to run excessively slowly. We received it as a gift from my dad and I think he had installed quite a bit of software we will never use.

It is a HP laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium.
HP Pavilion dv9000.

When all is said and done, I'd like to have Picasa installed on it to edit pictures and Internet Explorer. Pretty much everything else goes unused.
Thanks!

Until recently I have NEVER had any problems at all with this machine. A few days ago I admit I tried to download a *dubious* file, and unfortunately all hell seemingly broke loose! My Norton AntiVirus 2007 made no attempt to block or acknowledge any virus or attack. Internet Explorer was producing pop-ups constantly and everything was running at such an incredibly slow speed that it was practically impossible to perform a basic task like open Google. One website recommended I try Spyware Doctor. This found 126 infections of various type. It seemed to be saying one of the worst was Virtumonde. After 'deleting' these viruses I was immediately inundated with Norton and Spyware Doctor pop-ups saying various terrible things were being blocked and trying to attack my system. If anything, my PC was slower AFTER using 'Doctor! I did a Google search on Virtumonde and found this site. Someone else's post recommended VundoFix which seemed to work (found about 7 files I believe) and said it got rid of them on reboot. I was STILL having major issues. I ran Norton scans and Spyware Doctor scans and even Windows Defender scans, sometimes finding the odd spyware or tracking cookie, which it deleted. I've since tried SpyBot and Ad-Aware 7.0 (as recommended by BC) - these found a few more 'infections' and seem to have dealt with them. I no longer have an... Read more A:Malware Gone (?)...

Read more A:Solved: PC running very slowly Well, I'm COMPLETELY uneducated in the "hijack this" log's. With that said, I'm pretty sure I see two different anti-virus programs taking up space at the same time. I'm guessing you are using McAfee and you used to have Norton. Norton IMO has a tradition of using up resources and can be hard to uninstall. (kinda like a virus!) There is a special remover that may help. I stress MAY. Either way, I don't think having two anti-virus programs of any sort running at the same time is going to help you. May be the problem. Maybe not. I'd get rid of one or the other though. 2 more replies Answer Match 69.72% A while back i had a problem with some viruses that got into my computer and pretty much rendered it useless for a little while.

One day after closing the game, my laptop became sluggish; opening files and internet browsers would take a long time, sometimes they'd freeze and not respond for a few seconds. Rebooting was a long process as well, I'd get stuck at the welcome screen for a few minutes, and then my desktop would take a while to load, overall the whole process would last a half hour to an hour, sometimes more. I wasn't sure what the problem was, if the game had caused this somehow... Anyway I got impatient and decided to reinstall Vista by using the System Recovery from the partition by pressing F11 at startup to restore my laptop to factory settings. But even after that, and having installed all the updates for Vista, startups have still been painfully slow and I'm experiencing all the same problems. Thank you in advance for any help.

Hi, i'm new to these forums so sorry if i've posted this wrong!

This morning i started receiving pop ups roughly every two minutes when using Internet Explorer 7. I have no idea where i could have got them from either! They mostly advertise online casinos but there are the odd few about breast implants and swingers websites!

Being a fairly inexperienced 15 year old guy i decided to look here for help!

i have already run my symantec antivirus software, Ad-aware 2007 and spybot search and destroy all to no avail!

so i have just run aprogramme called HijackThis which i am completely unfamiliar with so i thought i would post the log here so here it is:

When I log into http://www.care2.com then access my email within care2 the following has just started to happen. I get the following dialog box:

"The Script on this page is causing IE to run slowly - If it continues to run, your computer may become unresponsive. Do you want to abort the script?". If I click NO, the page opens that I wanted, if I click YES, I get a partly loaded page - I then go to Task Manager/Application and it shows "not responding" against care2 pages open, so I end the task.

I have checked my Internet Option/advanced/browsing, but cannot locate a problem with the items enabled. I have not touched any settings within Internet Options/advanced at this stage. The same thing happens when I use Firefox.

Thanks, would be pleased of some help when possible.

Happy New Year to all

A:IE and Firefox running slowly

It is a problem with the script on the page you are on and what has to be done is to notify the owners of the page there is a problem. If it was your computer then this would be a problem on all of the pages you visit. I would go back to the page and see if there is a way to leave them an email about the problem.

Hallo,

The performance of my laptop (Toshiba P100-160 Satellite Pro, Vista installed at purchase) has dropped off over the last couple of months and I am not sure why.

It is somewhat erratic, but can take 5+ minutes from turning on to being able to start an application. It can take a couple of minutes to open a Word/Excel file in Office 2007 (dunno why I didn't get OpenOffice...) and much longer if opening from the web.

Occasionally it can totally freeze for a few minutes making clicking noises before it starts working again.

When typing here, or using clients like MSN, I often find that I type much faster than the text comes up on screen, and find myself waiting to see if I made any typos (and I'm no touch-typist).

I was just living with the slowness until I went away for a couple of weeks with a friend, taking her MacBook which was lightening fast in comparison.

I have tried a number of things to improve the situation:

Moved all my photos from notebook to portable hard drive
Moved all films to portable hard drive
Removed a stack of programs from the start-up menu
Defrag hard drive
Clear temporary files etc

I also changed some visual settings in windows to try and put less strain on the processor, such as removing transparency.

Removing photos and video means I have 47.4GB free (of 91.4 available). I'm surprised there is that much space taken up as I removed a whole load of games etc too.

The thing that takes longest is probably using Windows Explor... Read more

A:Solved: Running slowly

10 more replies

I don't know why but my computer seems to be running slowly lately. Watching a video there will be some frames missing. When I tried fast forwarding it would take 1-2 secs to load or the video would pause and the audio would keep going. This just started recently and I tried to see if it was just the files but when I rewatched the files that worked perfectly before there was lag. Also when I'm typing there is a lag from the input and when it appears. The lag isn't that bad but its noticeable. Also there is lag when erasing text. Also I get an error message when shutting down my computer but I can't read it because my computer shuts down before I get the chance to. The only things that I've done was updating windows, installed a VPN about a week ago, and installed a SSD about 1-2 months ago other than that all I've done was watch videos and browsed the internet.

A:Computer running slowly.

Have you ran the standard scans? I mean malwarebytes and a good deep scan with your Anti-Virus? Have you tried a restore point to before this started? Updated all video/network drivers?

We have many great tutorials here,made by some very knowledgeable people, have you tried any of these? : Optimize Windows 7

I got a new laptop with 8GB RAM, I usually use Ubuntu but decided to leave Windows on it. It runs extremely slowly and is constantly running out of memory. I never had this issue with my 2GB RAM laptop running Ubuntu. Initially it was constantly freezing up, so I followed this tutorial to speed up the performance:
click here just tells you to reduce the allocated memory to the Recommended number of megabytes:

Since then, I still have the same memory problem, but now instead of freezing, it warns me that I'm running out of memory:

When I check the task manager to see if theres something eating up the memory, I see nothing unusual:

It makes no sense at all. 8GB of RAM and I can barely use the laptop cuz it runs out of memory every 30 minutes. It also takes really long to restart. This is my second attempt at writing this post because the page froze. Sometimes the screen goes black and the only thing I can do is reboot the laptop.
When I get this warning, and things start freezing up, I've tried closing down various tasks through the task manager, but that doesn't unfreeze things. The only unusual thing I see in task manager is Chrome usually has about 20 processes in there. But that shouldn't be an issue if I've got 8GB of RAM. I can't work with this OS if its freezing all the time.
Is this a common problem? Is there a way to fix it? Anyone know what the possible cause of this might be?

Over the past 4-5 days I've noticed my computer is running extremely slow. It's somewhat bareable, as I can still play games but say I want to play poker and web surf often times it starts to freeze/delay. Sometimes even if I click on a web page it will sometimes pause for a second as if it has to reload. Feels like I'm on a Pentium 2 or something even though I have a Phenom X3. I don't think it's a virus because nothing fishy has been going on, and I did check my hijackthis and it seems alright to me. But I pasted it below just in case...

A:Computer Running Very Slowly

Except for AVG9, most of your startup list can be prevented from auto-loading and running in the background.

---------------------------------------------------------------

From what I can see in your log, a scan for malware and spyware and other "nasties" is in order.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.46

SUPERAntiSpyware 4.42.0.1000

Close all open windows first, install them both, then restart your computer.

Start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

When the definition files have updated, click "OK".

Click "Scanner(tab) - Perform quick scan - Scan".

If infections are found during the scan, the number of infections will be highlighted in red.

When the scan is finished, click "Show Results".

Make sure that everything is selected, then click "Remove Selected".

If you're prompted to restart to finish the removal process, click "Yes".

Start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware again.

Click "Logs"(tab).

Highlight the scan log entry, then click "Open".

When the scan log appears in Notepad, copy-and-paste it here.

Start SUPERAntiSpyware.
