Windows 7, HP Pavilion dv4, computer suddenly started running very slowly

Q: Windows 7, HP Pavilion dv4, computer suddenly started running very slowly

I have an HP Pavilion dv4, 500gb memory, about 5 years old.  It was working fine up til about a week ago when everything started running very slowly, at least ten times slower than the day before.  Firefox kept randomly pausing every five seconds or so, programs take a long time to open, etc.  I reset the system to a save point from earlier in the week.  That took about 12 hours for the computer to complete, and it didn't help.   I thought maybe I picked up a virus, so I tried to run a scan.  Malwarebytes didn't find anything and Microsoft Security Essentials has, as of this morning, been running for about 56 hours and has scanned about 300,000 files.  I don't think that should take this long.   I am not computer savvy, so I looked around on the internet and some pages suggest that my hard drive needs replacing.  Is there anything else it could be?   I have no idea how to port my operating system and everything over onto a new hard drive and would like to avoid screwing up my computer even more.
Anyone?
Thanks.

A: Windows 7, HP Pavilion dv4, computer suddenly started running very slowly

 It sounds like a hard drive problem, but before replacing it, I'd want to do a few things.  First I'd back up any data I didn't want to lose while I still could.  Next I'd run chkdsk and let it check for and attempt repair of any bad sectors.  This will probably run another 2-3 hours - sorry 'bout that.  Finally I'd download disk diagnostics from Seagate or Western Digital and run them.  That will give you a lot of good info including the SMART data which predicts when the drive will fail.
 
Good luck.

So I was on my computer last Thursday night for a few mins..checking the usual sites (forums/email etc..) everything was fine. I didn't even touch my computer again until late Saturday night I went to check the usual sites again. Using both FF and IE using the scroll function is very, very delayed. Like I scroll one click and a line goes horizontally up/down the screen as the scroll goes up/down. I'm also noticing a substantial delay just clicking on local things on my pc, such as the start menu..which used to pop up instaneously now has to think for a second before opening up. I'm also noticing some severe spikes in CPU usage during simple tasks..ex: opening firefox makes it spike to 40%

My immediate reaction was that it must be spyware, so I ran windows defender, which found nothing. So I downloaded spyware doctor and spybot, which also both found nothing. I am running AVG free edition, which is completely updated and is scheduled to run ever other day. I just checked windows update and the only update available for me is IE8...which isn't my primary browser anyways.

Below is the hijack this log....which took about 30 seconds for me to scroll all the way down to highlight it all because it had to load each line individually

Hi, My computer has been running very slowly lately and I know that it is not normal. I also have been having problem with IE freezing and then shutting down. I know that I have enough memory, because I don't really have any programs or files on my computer, I have an external hard drive for all of that. I really appreciate the help!

Hi - this is my first time on here. I recently started having trouble with my laptop running very slowly. I ran avg and also Spybot and they came back with no viruses or spyware. I opened the task manager and noticed that it is running at 100% CPU, and assume that is the reason for the lag. I noticed teatimer associated with Spybot S&D was taking up a lot of memory, so I uninstalled S&D and reinstalled it without the teatimer. That seemed to speed it up slightly, but it is still running slow, particularly when trying to play videos or opening programs needing java. I also ran PC tools registry mechanic to scan the registry, clean up the disks and registry, and defrag the registry, but not getting any faster. Looking at the processes in the task manager, the two that are using up the most CPU seem to be connected to my Belkin Router (which I have been using without this problem for several months): Bkbackupscheduler.exe and Connect.exe go back and forth between 47% CPU and 50% CPU each. I don't know enough about computers to know what these processes are, if they are legit and necessary, or if they should be using so much CPU, and what the consequences of stopping (or removing) them would be.. Please help!!! Thanks!

A:Computer Suddenly Running Slowly

Uninstall Spybot. Teatime causes more problems than it's worth. Today's best of breed anti-spyware apps are MalwareBytes & Super AntiSpyware. I suggest you try one or both of those.

Next, uninstall PC Tools and Registry Mechanic. Registry utilities / cleaners CAUSE problems, they do not cure them. There is no such thing as a good registry cleaner and such utilities should NEVER be used.

After doing that, let us know if you still have problems. If so, we'll try to isolate the offending process.

I have a Samsung laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate v 6.1 build 7601, Service Pack 1.  It runs fine in safe mode, but it has recently started taking a long time to start up in normal mode.  If I try to open an Internet Explorer browser window in normal mode, it "hangs" with the little wheel going around.  The browser window does not start.  I have already tried system restore without success.   There were no system restore points available before yesterday, though, and I think it had already slowed down then. 
 
I ran Spybot a few days just for maintenance purposes.   I have been using Webroot Secure Anywhere as anti-virus.  I am uncertain about what steps to take to troubleshoot this situation.
 
Thanks in advance for your advice.

Hi. I'm not sure what happened to my system, but it's suddenly running extremly slowly. It happened a few days ago. The only thing I've done to try to correct is a disc defrag. Started up in Safe mode and did a AdAware and Spybot scan. Turned up one minor internet miner in the Adaware scan. Then I ran HJT. Here's the log. Can anyone offer a solution? Much appreciated.

Okey guys, I really hope you can help me out here cause I seem to be lost.
A week ago I just bought and installed a new SSD and it worked perfectly up until now. I went out and when I came back 1 hour later I booted my pc and everything just started running really slow. OBS! It's opening folders, games and just browsing the web which is just really slow, especially loading graphics. However when first loaded it runs perfectly.
Also I noticed the pc freezes a really long time when booting (at the image where you can choose between POST menu and BIOS settings)
Here's what I tried:

* Updating all drivers including chipset
* System Restore - nothing changed
* chkdsk /R
* Power On Self Test
* Tested RAM, even took them out/put them in again
* Checked all cooling fans
* Scanned my computer with several different virus software, nothing found
* Discfragmentation/Clean up + removing every program I don't use frequently

So please, help me god

Computer is running extremely slow all of a sudden (think husband installed some random stuff he clicked on and it possibly contained malware?), keep getting suspicious popups about a program called LVMaintenance needing to run and my browser proxy setting keeps getting switched so that I can't access websites.
 
Getting interstitial ads and other weird popups from pretty much every website I visit.

Hi,

I have a Portege A100 which has suddenly started going very slowly. It takes a good 5 minutes to load completely up when it used to be far faster. I have tried reloading Windows onto it several times but as soon as you start loading other pieces of software onto it the speed deteriorates significantly.

I have also tried using software to completely wipe the hard drive before putting Windows back on but this doesn't seem to solve the problem either.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Hello David

I have had similar behavior on my old Satellite 1900. At the end I have checked HDD and there are many bad sectors. At the beginning everything was OK but after installation of few different applications Satellite was slower and slower.

At the end I have exchanged HDD and everything was OK again. I recommend you to check HDD to see if there are some bad sectors. If yes buy new HDD. Sector repair will not help much.

I have had this new laptop for about a month. It's a gaming laptop and I've had no problems until today. Startup which usually takes about 20 seconds from power on to all startup programs functional, now takes 3 minutes with desktop items taking a long time to display.

Upon completion of startup, chrome browser still takes several seconds to open when previously it was instantaneous. New webpages take 20-30 seconds to open when speedtest.net shows a download speed of 31mbps.

Simply opening a program or an Adobe document takes way too long, with the blue spinning circle icon all too present in the simplest of tasks.

I downloaded AVG Free and ran a full scan which reported clean bill of health. I then bought AVG PC Tune Up. I have cleaned the registry, defraged the registry, optimized start up and shutdown, and defraged the hard drive.

I know this is a common problem but with many different causes, which is why I thought to start a new thread. When I ran an Event Log it came up with a lot of Warnings and Critical which I know nothing about. Thanks very much, if someone could please let me know what I should do next. Really don't want to do a clean install if possible.

I attached a .txt of the event log if this helps.

Scan for both malware and spyware. For spyware use a program called superantispyware; download, install and run the program at the following link:

also; scan for malware using malwarebytes:

Also; you might want to defrag the hard drive if it has not been done in awhile: start, programs, accessories, system tools, defragmenter

Hello,
I have a duo centrino PC running windows vista. My laptop was working well up until last week when I shut down the computer without any problems. The next time I started it, I noticed it was running EXTREMELY slowly and It was taking 10 to 15 minutes to start basic programs such as internet explorer or word. I tried running McAfee figuring the computer may have acquired a virus. When I would try to run a full scan, it would give me an error saying that a file was missing and the scan could not be run. So I figured the computer had a virus. I went to safemode and the computer runs with good speed in safemode. I tried to reinstall McAfee but it can not be installed in safemode. I tried installing it in regular mode but when I click on setup file, nothing happens. Could it be that a virus is preventing me from installing McAfee? The fact that the operating speed is good in safe mode but extremely slow in regular mode be related to a virus? Would really appreciate your input on how I can get my computer back.

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).

Hi ,

I have noticed over the last week that everything on my pc has started to open and run slowly, Internet explorer in particular seems to take ages to open initially. I have run scans with AVG, Spybot, Ad-Aware Se, and A Squared, along with CWS and Trend Micro's online scanner and nothing seems to be out of order there. I defragment my hard disk regularly and clear out any clutter from the registry using Winoptimizer 3 and Registry Mechanic. I have Service Pack 2 installed and regularly check for updates.

My computer is about 3 years old, and although only a 1.8MHz processor has always run relatively smoothly and quickly enough for my needs, now things take ages to open.

I'm not sure if I'm right, but when I installed IE7 and then had to remove it because of the HP Director conflict (the work around available didn't work), IE6 seemed slower to start once reinstalled. I tried Firefox2 which I liked but that seemed to take even longer to open.

I noticed that it seems the thing to do to post HJT logs so mine follows.

I'd really appreciate any suggestions as to why thing are slowing down. Thanks in advance


ps. A squared always seems to find something called HackerWacker which it then proceeds to delete for it to be there again next time. I think this is a false positive, at least i hope so..

pps. Also, if there is anything that I don't need showing up in the HJt log please let me know.

I would appreciate your assistance. I have a relatively new machine, HP, 4 gig RAM, 500 GIG HD, flat panel, canon 4-in-1, wired keyboard and mouse. Running Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit. I'm going to try and give as much detail as the sticky posts requested.

For approximately a year now it has run perfectly (after an initial two hard driver crashes - when I had gone 30 years without one).

Several days ago, there was a half-second power outage and the computer turned off in mid-use. When I initially rebooted it ran very very slow. I rebooted again and this seemed to fix the problem. Went back to running lightning fast as normal.

A few hours later, in the midst of being used, it suddenly came to a screeching halt. I rebooted again. This time, on the screen where you choose which user to log in as, there was a momentary video glitch (black lines running from left edge of screen towards the right, about halfway down the screen). This only lasted for about a second, but has never happened before. At first the mouse worked fine, and then as I moved it toward my login button it began to move jerkily. Stopping in one place, then a fraction of a second later jumping to another location where it also hung for a fraction of a second, etc.... Rebooted again. Same problem. Rebooted again, this time selecting a prior saved configuration, one from directly before the power spike. This appeared to solve the problem for a few hours, althoght the Norton anti-viru...

Please help, my computer isn't very useful right now. Here's the deal:

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. Internet Explorer or Opera Web Browser), it takes another five to seven minutes for one the programs to appear on the screen, then another minute or two for the program to load. When I close a program, it does one of two things; my computer will freeze, and I'll have to restart it; or, it will take a couple of minutes to close the program. And I'm just working with the basics; Internet explorer, opera, open office, and windows media. I'm trying to add music to my newly added iTunes library, but that's almost impossible.

2. My computer won't shut down. This computer is only seven months old, it's too young for such problems. When I go to shut my computer down, I select the shut down icon from the start menu, and expect my computer to shut down. Rather than shutting down, windows pop up telling me that the programs that I had been running are not responding, and I have the option to wait or end the program. I end the program, and the window comes up again, it's almost like my computer isn't properly responding to its commands. Again ... Read more

All of the sudden my computer took twice as long to start up and my sound skips and is stretched.. everything is very slow, my mouse skips as well, and before no matter what I was doing, no matter what I was downloading or playing games, my mouse never freezes...

I had the free Norton that comes with comcast, and after (the sluggishness) I downloaded malwarebytes and got AVG internet security 2011. And they did clean some viruses out. But it still runs slow, I updated all of my drivers.. I deleted almost all of my programs. The only antivirus I have running is AVG and AVG PC tuneup which tuned up and fixed 4,884 problems. But STILL NO FIX. Plus I re-installed all of my codecs and divx and everything possible, updated my drivers with two different driver updaters..

Its either the drivers, could be codecs, or something happened to my power supply.

look at this info on my computer and tell me if something is wrong..

HiJack this log is below. My computer has slowed way down in the last few weeks and I can't figure out why.I'm not sure if all the detail on history will help but here's what I can recall. I'm running XP professional (32 bit encryption I believe). OS version 5_1_2600, SP 2.0 (installed over a year ago so not the culprit), Product 256_1.Scanned with cleanmgr, Ad-Aware, Spybot, Trend-Micro Housecall, McAfee Stinger, Kaspersky, Norton Antivirus, running ZoneAlarm, Windows updates are current.Back in Mid-January, McAfee required me to update their "internet security" program in order to get new virus definitions (McAfee shipped with the computer so I was using it until it expired). That is when a lot of problems began. Simultaneously, I decided to update to IE 7. I also was running ZoneAlarm.I needed to do backup - and I have used Ghost as I like the complete image of the hard drive. I first tried Ghost booting from a CD; since it was very slow, on Jan 22, 2007 I decided to try downloading a free copy of Ghost 10.0 to see if that would speed things up. It didn't, and twice, it crashed halfway through the 2nd DVD, a very bad crash (blue screen) and something about a Kernel_Page_Error or something. I was able to recover but XP warned me it had recovered from a serious error. I'm not sure what caused this error - later I realized I should have selected "partition to image" instead of "disk to image" and don't know if that was the problem. See... Read more

A:Xp Pro Suddenly Running Very Slowly - Help - Nothing Turns Up With Standard Worm/virus/trojan Scans

Since no one's replied yet and since I had to get anti-virus protection (trend micro for now), I'm posting a new hijack this log. I also ran some PC pitstop diagnostics (as shown in the new log) and also ran F-secure's blacklight (beta) which turned up nothing. (This isn't an attempt to bump ... merely to have a correct log here). I also installed Java 6.0 from the Sun website (currently turned off).(If it's of any relevance, I noticed in the msconfig "startup" tab, one of my entries (checked) is blank under "start up item" and "command" and location is HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentVersion\Run. Is this OK? Or is it some suspicious something starting at bootup?)Also: if nothing else, can hijack this experts please tell me how to deal with the "file missing" entries in the log.

Hello,
 
First things first this is my first time asking for help in forums so i don't know what to expect
 I have Windows 7 Ultimate, and for the past 2-3 days my computer suddenly became slow and very laggy, when i try to open something whole PC freezes for approximately 10 seconds, same goes with the chrome browser whatever i touch freezes. I'm writing this topic and for couple of seconds the browser freezes. Things i did : Disk cleanup and scanned my computer with Malwarebytes it detected 56 files (Malware, Trojan.miner, PUP's and some other), but it still have lags, so i gave up and wanted to get help from the professionals/experienced people
 
Details: It runs smoothly in Safe Mode, Shutdown process takes very long to operate, and i don't know if this helps but my friend asked me to download a game and play with him, so he sent me the URL, and there there were ads, and different websites popping out, i THINK the lag started from that website he sent me. I'm currently using Safe Mode.

I am using a Toshiba Satellite laptop with Windows XP. Last week it suddenly started running really slow -- especially at boot-up (over 10 minutes to boot). Sometimes my CPU is running at 50% with no programs running. I've run the various spyware/anti-virus programs to no avail. Can you help? I think I've followed the instructions correctly and outputted/attached all the proper files.

First of all, 
Hi, brand new user from Canada here.  I Looked at a few topics to see what I stumbled upon and I was impressed! Happy to be a new member and hope to use this site often! (I know this isn't introduction, I just find it more polite to say hi before asking from you guys!)
Well there we go, recently my gaming computer started slowing down, skipping frames when the action became intense (Sc2 Extreme settings full Zerg army, for exemple), which it didn't ever do before! I'm having trouble finding what might be the issue and it's starting to bug me. So I came for hints! 
As you can probably tell by the topic's location I'm running Windows 8, the specs should be detailled in the picture attached with the topic. Other than that I guess I'll include a OOKLA speedtest and the webpage describing the computer's hardware. I've ran CCleaner and repaired. Did a system restore from before the supposed slowdown time. Cleaned the hardware (We own 2 cats, dust and cat hairs were "obstructing" the different vents [Nothing clogged or anything like that, just a little bit dusty]). Other than that I don't remember doing anything else whilst trying to fix my problem! 
I was wondering if it could've been software related (Os mainly) and if not what could be the cause? 
Oh, also, I have Norton Internet Security installed and up to date.
 
Thanks for any help! And if any more reports, results, info, etc. is required I'll be happy to follow instructions! ... Read more

A:My computer suddenly started slowing down

Welcome,
I'd suggest that you put IS into silent ode while gaming. The other choice being to go into your settings and have the program ignore the game.
Security scans can slow things down during rapid game action. Just be very sure you don't leave yourself open to an infection.

Hello guys,

I have just recentlty upgraded from Vista to Windows 7, (about 2 weeks ago) everything was fine, computer working acceptably fast, better than vista.
From one hour to another, it's been freezing a lot, it can go from 1 to two minutes of freeze, I don't know what's happening.

I keep monitoring my CPU's activity, and during freeze, it averages 20% in one minute, never peaking 100% , it has 2 or three applications in use, checked all of the processes and every one of it seems to be necessary; every program starts going: ''Not Responding'', even Windows Explorer.

At times there can be no open aplications, and it freezes, I have scanned and re-scanned with McAfee Internet Security, de-fragged, and registry cleaned, to see if maybe it could help do something about it ... no change.

Please help!

A:Computer suddenly started 2-minute freezing. Help!

I'm having blue screens now, and my freezing is extending to over 7 minutes every, every application is frozen, task manager isn't working.
It took 25 minutes to write this down.

I was listening to iTunes and surfing the Internet like I've done a thousand times before. Suddenly my iTunes music started lagging and the Internet got really slow, out of nowhere. I turned my computer off and on and uninstalled chrome as I thought the problem might have something to do with the web browser. If anything, I think it got worse! My computer is so slow that I had to turn it off before I threw the whole thing in the wall out of frustration!

I am not technical at all and I have no idea what the problem might be. I didn't get any messages from my virus protector that it was a virus but I noticed that when I pressed CTRL+ALT+DEL the processes were running at 100% the whole time which I assume isn't good.

Any help would be highly appreciated! And I'm also sorry of this is in the wrong forum as I have no idea what's wrong.

Just today, my computer has been running extremely slow. It was fine yesterday and all week, before that etc... etc..
It runs totally fine is Safe Mode (I'm currently in Safe Mode with networking support) but it's not working at all in Normal Settings. It has only a few second boot time, but once I hit the desktop, Any attempt to open the Start Menu, Start any Application, or even right-click the desktop results in nothing but freezing and the computer freezing up. even Task Manager doesn't do anything.
 
Please Help! I have no idea why this is happening, I'm usually pretty computer savvy and I can fix my own computer problems, but this one is beyond my scope.

A:My computer (Windows 7) Is suddenly running slow.

Does it freeze forever, or is it just super slow (after it freezes, leave it alone for 30 minutes to see if it unfreezes)?
 
If you're able:
Open up Task Manager (taskmgr.exe) and select the option to view process' for all users (the long button in the lower left of the processes tab)
Then click on the VIew...Select Columns entry - and select I/O Reads and I/O Other
Then sort by the CPU, Memory, I/O Reads, and I/O Other columns - look for the process name of the highest couple in each category.
Let us know them and we'll move on from there.
 
Another thing to try is this free program:  http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html
Use it to disable all non-Windows shell extensions.  Reboot to see if it helps.
If it does, then re-enable ½ at a time and see if you can find the problem one in that way (by ½'s)
 
Post back with the results and we'll see what else we can do.

First of all, let me say I consider myself somewhat of an expert in computers. I built this box from parts, set up a custom partitioning scheme, G:\ for program files, mounting a partition under my desktop etc. So two days ago I updated JRE (java). I don't know if that sparked the problems or not, but a few hours later my comp went down with a blue screen of death indicating hard drive problems STOP 0x0...77 (0xC0...185 0xC...185, 0x07D0F000).This happened a few times. When I try to reboot off the BSOD my comp doesnt see the main hard drive (the only one on a SATA cable, my second drive is on IDE with my CD ROM). When I take the power cord out then reboot I can boot normally. Since I can still boot normally, I am thinking this is not a hard drive issue but some sort of viral thing. Plus the system restores are wiped which is very symptopmatic of a virus. Plus the system really did hang whenever I ran a virus scanner. Now, normally I am very careful. I use two different browsers, keep my comp updated, dont click on anything suspiscious (and i am pretty paranoid about links) run 2 virus scanners and 2 adware blockers. So when I cold boot the box off a BSOD, It boots, no problem, then runs a little bit, but then hangs with a similar STOP 0x0...77 especially when it is doing something. It hung once when i was backing up my desktop (work) partition, it hung when I booted Opera from my quicklaunch, etc. What is strange is that the comp is also running slower. ... Read more

I've got a Toshiba Satellite p55w-b5112 laptop running Windows 10 that has "out of the blue" started crashing with a BSOD. (SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION) For a while it wouldn't even boot, it would crash before fully booting, and I suspected a virus infection, so I downloaded the BitDefender Rescue CD. Somehow through a train of crashes, it booted into Windows, instead of the LiveCD and actually stayed running! However, the keyboard and touchpad wouldn't work. Device Manager showed that there was a driver problem with the keyboard. I tried telling Windows Update to find a new driver for it, but it claims that it was up to date. Downloaded MBAM and ran it which found 6 PUP, but nothing serious. (I told it to quarantine them, just in case). I then ran sfc.exe /scannow, which ran all the way through, and completed with no errors. Finally, I made a system image with Macrium Reflect so that if it won't boot again, at least the files on the HDD will be saved. Then I uninstalled the keyboard driver and shut down. [In the meantime, Windows Update installed the 2 updates that were released yesterday] Now, I tried to restart it, and it's just crashing with a BSOD again before it will finish booting. I tried booting a Windows 10 DVD and running the "Repair" but it BSOD again while trying to do that.  Does anyone have any suggestions? At first I thought it was a virus/software/driver problem, but if it can't even boot from a DVD, I don't know what to say! (I'm a... Read more

MemTest 86 (not 86+) will boot to UEFI automatically
The antivirus tests will vary based upon the methods used (but I'm not as concerned with these as you were able to do some scans previously).
 
Minidumps are located in C:\Windows\Minidump
They'll have a date/time for the filename - and will end in .dmp
 
Can you get into Safe Mode?
If you can reach the Startup Repair screen, you can use the Troubleshoot option to find the Safe Mode entry.
See if you can do that.

If you're able to get into Safe Mode, then try a "clean" boot:  http://www.thewindowsclub.com/what-is-clean-boot-state-in-windows

Didn't change anything on the laptop so don't know why it happened. Here's the diagnostic report:

Hi!
I have just installed Win 8 the other day. All was OK, but today I had trouble booting and used boot recovery option from Win 8 boot menu. After that it started to behave like 7: it logs me in straight to old good desktop (not Metro UI), it shows circular "Start" button just like in 7 (it was looking a bit different yesterday), also Explorer and task Manager started looking exactly like in 7.
Any idea what happened and to get new features back?
Thanks in advance!

A:Windows 8 DP (build 8102) suddenly started looking like 7

Are you sure you are still in Windows 8? You might have reverted back to Windows 7 ... somehow.

Hello,

My computer is running very slowly, and I cannot figure out why. I defragmented, ran a virus scan, etc. I also use adaware and spybot regularly to check for spyware. Nothing seems to help. I am confused because this computer has run well up until recently. It is older--we purchased it in about 2002-2003.

In case this is important--it is a Dell and I'm running Windows XP.

Can anyone help?

Thank you!

Hi,sorry for the very general description, but since Christmas my computer has slowed down. It is very slow starting up, and when surfing the internet it occasionally runs very slowly, and very occassionally it locks up. It never used to do this, so I'm wondering if there's another problem. I've tried using tools such as Spybot, but nothing has been identified as a problem. Thanks in advance.

A:Computer Running Slowly

Hello,I can't see anything suspicious here, but your problem is mainly caused because you are having 2 Antivirus installed. Bitdefender and AVG.Never install more than one Antivirus and Firewall! Rather than giving you extra protection, it will decrease the reliability of it seriously! The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, your system may lock up due to both software products attempting to access the same file at the same time. Also because more than one Antivirus and Firewall installed are not compatible with eachother, it can cause system performance problems and a serious system slowdown. I would strongly advise you to only have one Anti-Virus with the Auto-Protect feature running at any one time!If you decide to only keep one Anti-Virus installed, you should uninstall the other(s) through the Add or Remove Programs option in Control Panel.Also, I see Zonealarm installed. Keep in mind that, on some systems, it may indeed cause a serious slowdown, especially when browsing. This all depends what your Computer specs are. How much ram etc..I do not recommend Zonealarm when you have less than 512MB of ram.

Hey all, Some advice needed please.

I am currently running XP media center edition (service pack 3) and using google chrome as my main web browser as i cannot open up ie for some strange reason, (it opens, but they keeps reloading the page, and bringing up error messages)... Anyway

My computer seems to be running really slowly, I have over 50GB free on my hard drive and have done full scans with both Malware antibytes and Mcafee, neither have found any viruses.

I have also run advanced registry optimizer, which seems to fix hundreds of problems but doesnt actually make my pc any quicker, the average load up time is now around 7 mins in the morning, where only a few weeks ago it was loading up in less than a minute.

I have tested my broadband speed at different times of the day and niter, and the results all seem around the same (7mb/s)

Anyone got any ideas for things i could try now, or any software it may be worth getting to try to solve once and for all?

Any help appreciated.

In the last few weeks the performance of my PC has deteriorated rapidly, until then it took only a few seconds to load new applications like Word, Excel and Firefox, now it?s taking three or four minutes.

I have submitted my Hijack-this report below so could somebody please advice on what action I need to take to rectify this problem?

A:please help, computer running slowly

i think it might be to do with WMI - as if something has got hold of it and is running prcesses - i keep getting a corrupt file on the D drive and having to fix it along with high interrupts-- is this a case of backing up important data to CD, clean install and wiping all hard drives then changing passwords? or is there something else? I've turned off WMI for the time being seems a little better.

My computer does not run at optimum speed and I don't know how I can fix it. I downloaded the free "regcure", did the scan and the report showed 1400 + things that needed to be fixed. of course they won't fix them until you buy the software.
So I tried the hijack this scan. The log will follow.
I have a Lenovo 3000 C200 laptop running windows xp professional version 2002 with service pack 3.
When I open my task manager there seems to be many programs running even though i don't have any programs opened. i know that this could be from software that starts up automatically that runs in the background. I don't know what should be running and I don't feel comfortable removing items.
I haven't run the Lenovo optimizer yet. I need a little guidance on how I should proceed. I have never used this forum before, so I don't even know how I will be contacted. My email address is [email protected].
Thanks in advance!

My sister has come home from university for the holidays and asked me to check out her laptop computer for her because it has been running slower than usual. I ran through all the steps on the stickies and it is still not running as it should, so I thought it might be best if I post a HJT log here for some more guidance to see if anything can be done. I realise it is the holiday period, so whenever anyone can get around to this, that would be great. Merry Christmas

Hello, My comp is running slowly and I want to ask about moving programs from C drive to D drive. I have a Sony Vaio notebook (PCG-NV170) running XP. The C drive is around 65% full and D is empty. What are the best programs to move over to D and what is the best way to do this? I have Quicken installed, but I don't use it much, I thought I would start with this. How interchangeable are the drives, though? If I moved programs that I use often over, would they still function as well? I've only ever dealt with one hard drive before. Thanks in advance.

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.

Download and save these 2 programs:

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.46

SUPERAntiSpyware 4.42.0.1000

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

Follow these instructions next:

Start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

Click "Updates(tab) - Check for Updates".

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.

Click "Check for Updates".

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

Click "Scan your Computer - Perform Quick Scan - Next".

If infections or problems are found during the scan, a list will appear.

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

The amount of games installed wont be helping, Check that your Pagefile isnt too large. Also, go to Properties of your main HDD and run Disk Cleanup (with all options selected) that should also free you some HDD space.

Hey guys, I could use some help. My computer has been running very slowly lately. I have 67 free gigs of space, so I wouldn't think that's the problem. It's slow in the following ways:

Opening the start menu
Opening Programs
Running Firefox or any browser

programs seem to lag pretty badly when I have more than one open. Sometimes even when I only have one open. Could this be due to my computer's amount of RAM?

The computer is a Dell Dimension 8250.
It's about 3 years old but I try to maintain it well.
I've reformatted it once. I'd rather not do it again.

Here is a hijack this log incase that helps.

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks again!

Hi. Starting a couple days ago, my computer has been very laggy. For example, opening up My Computer or Firefox takes 5-12 seconds. Also my applications have been freezing and crashing (i.e. the message "this application is not responding") including Firefox, Wordpad, and explorer.exe. First I tried downloading Google Chrome to see if that ran any faster than Firefox, and it doesn't. Next, I ran MBAM and Spybot (the scans took a few hours each) and they turned up nothing. I also used autoruns to stop some executables which were unnecessary or possibly malicious, and that didn't seem to help either. I'm not sure what's wrong, and using my computer now is very frustrating. Could someone please help me?

A:Computer running very slowly

Just as a quick update:

My computer seems to run slowly only while browsing the web. Youtube videos are so choppy that they are impossible to watch. I use Firefox. Since my last post, I've also run an ESET scan, which showed no infections, and defragmented my hard drive, which hasn't seemed to help.

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. I recieved help on this website and the computer seems to be virus free (thats what they told me in the cirus help section) but the computer seems to be running very slowly. It boots up slower, when windows loads it takes a lot longer for all the startup programs to load, and when i try and start a program like firefox or microsoft powerpoint it takes a long time to load (we are talking like 15 seconds or less but before the virus issues it took like 2 seconds to open things like powerpoint and firefox)


Can anyone help me?

A:Computer running slowly

Were you running Anti Virus software before...if yes, what was it. I know if I run AVG FRee on my system it is really fast, but loose am more prone to a virus.

I just did a clean install of XP and quite a few others before that however, I know once I install CA on this system it will slow down quite a bit just from what it is doing in the background when I open a browser or other programs. I've run a few different AV programs and I seem to like CA because it isn't as intrusive as some others and it updates in the background with very little input from myself unless iot reminds me I haven't scanned lately. Also, CA is easily customisable when you install. I elected to only install the AV and Spyware part of it. I prefer to use Windows' Firewall.

Hello, my computer is running very slowly, it takes forever to load pages on the internet, I cant sign in to check my email, and I can't download files because it says transferring and nothing happens. My computer is also very slow on start-up and there is this putt-putt sound that it makes when something is loading,etc. Last week I had a system.exe-bad image pop-up every time I started windows and randomly throughout, and I did some research and used combofix to get rid of it. It worked, I guess it detected that I had a rootkit, but my computer is still running slow, perhaps even slower now. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My computer is a dell with windows xp.

No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, neither of us want someone to assist you who is not fa...

Having run ComboFix, without a helper, I came to the ComboFix Log File and the instructions stated that the computer needed further analysis to find out if there were any further infections.I do seem to have lost that file probably because I must have saved it incorrectly so as requested I have attached the DDS files.
i could not create a GMER Log as the scan did not complete after running for 3 hours Windows shut down with the message "A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer." DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. When it tried to restart itself I had the message "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER" which I did with no response.
I had to press and hold the "ON" button to shut down after which it started correctly

Hey guys, my computer started running incredibly slowly recently, so I ran a virus scan, turned up a few trojans, and deleted them, still didn't fix the problem.

Long story short, I've run the following scans:
Malwarebytes
Avira
Avast
SUPERantispyware

Caught some things at first, they now all come up clean. I also followed all the steps in the "Is your PC running slowly?" thread. My PC is still running slowly. I also occasionally get BSOD'd. I'm running windows XP(32 bit), it's a custom-built machine, and I don't have a windows install or recovery disk anymore.

Below is the DDS, and the attached reports. when I ran GMER I kept getting BSOD on the full scan, so I ran it with sections and C: only.

Thanks!

My work just sent me a work laptop. It is so slow. I am wondering if there is anything I can do about it. It is window's vista and I am an XP user so I am not as familiar with this. I ran a HJT and was wondering if someone could take a look at it. Vista is so different (to me) that I have no idea where to start. I really appreciate your time.

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!

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.

Any help you can offer will be of great help.

Thanks,
Sara

A:computer running slowly

Hello puternoviceiam and welcome to TSF,

Nothing really showing up in that log. Let's try some general cleaning and an online scan.

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 doesn't work) and install it.

*NOTE* Cleanup deletes EVERYTHING out of temp/temporary folders and does not make backups. If you have any documents or programs that are saved in any Temporary Folders, please make a backup of these before running CleanUp!

Run Cleanup! using the following configuration:

1. Click Options...
2. Set the slider to Standard CleanUp!
3. Uncheck the following:Delete Newsgroup cache
Delete Newsgroup Subscriptions
Scan local drives for temporary files
4. Click OK
5. Press the CleanUp! button to start the program. Reboot/logoff when prompted.
* CleanUp! will not create any backups!!

Perform an online scan using Internet Explorer with Panda ActiveScan

A:Computer Running Very Slowly

Hello Rjpieces and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I see no signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.There are a couple of housekeeping items we can cleanup so let's do that while you are here.First, your copy of HijackThis needs to be in a folder of it's own. If it is run from Temporary folders the backups and HijackThis itself could be accidentally deleted if the Temporary folders are cleaned. If it is run from the desktop then the backup files and folders can clutter up the desktop and be accidentally deleted.Please open My ComputerDouble-click on Local Disk (C:)Click on the File menu, point to New and then click on Folder. Name the folder 'HijackThis' or 'HJT'.Unzip to or copy and paste HijackThis.exe to the new folder.Now, start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:O2 - BHO: (no name) - {761497BB-D6F0-462C-B6EB-D4DAF1D92D43} - (no file)O8 - Extra context menu item: &Search - http://ka.bar.need2find.com/KA/menusearch.html?p=KANow close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.Also, it looks like the java installation is missing some of its files. It is an older version anyway so let's update it. Updating Java:Note: the "XX" in the version will be whatever the latest version is.Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update XX.Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime ...

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

Hi Firstly I would like to say that it is wonderful to have found a replacement for castle cops which I had just found before they were closed down! Thank-you for just being here lol Secondly I am just learning about using my computer safely although I have had 1 for years mainly for my children. With help from castle cops I managed to get my computer back online after it was full of viruses although I have noticed that since being able to install SP2 last year it is running very slowly! If anyone would be kind enough to help me as I would be most grateful as I was enjoying learning before castlecops closed down.

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. I recieved help on another website and the computer seems to be virus free (thats what they told me in the virus help section after we ran through some fixes, and my computer is now virus free) but the computer seems to be running very slowly. It boots up slower, when windows loads it takes a lot longer for all the startup programs to load, and when i try and start a program like firefox or microsoft powerpoint it takes a long time to load (we are talking like 15 seconds or less but before the virus issues it took like 2 seconds to open things like powerpoint and firefox) The computer is just running overall more slowly.
Should i post a hijackthis log and post my msconfig startup prorgrams?

My WinXP Professional computer has been running very slowly. In looking at the task manager, winlogon.exe seems to be running around 95% most of the time.

I have run NAV and found no viruses and Adaware and found a few files that were removed after the scan.

In addition, the task bar and much of the windows are blacked out.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:Computer running VERY Slowly

Please download HijackThis. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Run a scan and save the log file. Post the whole log file here. Do not fix anything since most of them listed there are harmless (some are system required). This program will help us determine if there is any spyware/malware on your computer.

Hi,

Ok, im not 100% sure where this should be put but since its to do with Windows i thought it cant be to much harm.

But the last 2-3 weeks ive been having major problems with my PC running very slowly, things havent changed like i have not downloaded anything what im aware off and its changed. For example it take anywhere from 2-10 mins to load up nearly anything when it used to open in a few seconds. also, while gaming i get horrible fps and terrible fps lag its awful to try do work and also enjoy my past time on the pc. so any suggestions would be nice also if you need details your going to need to explain im a complete rookie with PC's.
Also, while looking over some posts one said in taskmanager if a programm is running with 3 digits its a virus i this true and what should i do about them if it is

Thanks alot,

Sam

Hello,

My computer is running very slowly. I have an expired copy of Norton 2005 on the machine which I don't think is scanning anymore, so I have not checked for viruses/malware. I did do a windows scandisk which found and repaired a lot of bad clusters. That may have improved things somewhat. I do not have any popups or noticable malware running. It just slower than it should be. I use this pc for a single application at the office and it is rarely used for general surfing, never any torrent progs, etc.

I have attached gmer and attach.txt and posted DDS.txt below

Hello. I've used these forums twice before with great success in dealing with my past computer issues and I am now helping a friend with her computer. She has a laptop which has been running very slowly for a week or so. It's even refused to boot up a few times (gets stuck in the loading screen). When it finally gets started, it takes a long time to browse the internet (just clicking on IE will freeze it up). I also know she ran torrent programs such as utorrent (which I deleted). This was not a well-protected computer in the past - I'm pretty sure the first time microsoft updates were installed was as recently as a few weeks ago.

I've recently been having trouble running Starcraft on this computer. It's an older computer, but until last week, it was running Starcraft fine. I also noticed that the computer itself has slowed down whenever my screen saver comes up or I try to play a movie. I was checking my device manager and noticed the ! beside my display adapter.

It's a NVIDIA Vanta/Vanta LT.

The message that comes up in the status box is:

This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.

I recently installed a Wireless Router Reciever on this computer and it started running slowly. About a week later, the power flicked off and on due to a thunderstorm, then this computer started running normally again. The other day, my brother kicked the power bar off which has the cable modem, and the router hooked up on it. Then it started slowing down again.

Running XP with 700mHz processor and 320mb RAM. (don't mock me )

Any ideas?

A:Computer running slowly

The yellow Exclamation mark beside the Device means the computer can not properly communicate with the Device, probably caused by an improperly installed display driver.

The easiest solution would be to restart the computer into safe mode, and re-install it.
