Computer with Windows XP Home Running Slowly

Q: Computer with Windows XP Home Running Slowly

I have a slightly outdated computer running Windows XP Home Edition. This computer is nothing special, nor was it ever. I have run numerous scans and found little, but the computer is just functioning really slowly. Is there any scan or suggestions for just speeding up the computers functionality? Thanks!

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.alternate download link 1alternate download link 2MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top.

Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.Exit MBAM when done.Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

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
Eric

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:

SUPERAntiSpyware - Downloading File

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

I need help with my windows vista home premium. It runs terribly.
Its slow. When I click on a program it whirrrs and whirrs.

I can't uninstall anything, it says its either already been deleted or is missing (it's not, it works, I just don't need some of these programs anymore) This happens also if I try to uninstall from Safe Mode.

It says I'm not the administrator when I try to do almost anything but I sign in as administrator. I went to a site that told me I could fix this by going to Computer/Manage/Tools/Local Groups and Users... but Local Groups and Users doesn't exist.

When I go to control panel and try to change any thing under User, nothing will open for me.
I'm not real computer saavy and every site I go to tells me to try something different and I don't know half of what they're talking about.

Is there a downloadable program that can fix these issues?

Thanks!

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

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.

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.

I don't know what the "freedom hidden window" thing is you are seeing, some more info or a screenshot would be helpful.

It might be associated with this > C:\Program Files\Common Files\Command Software\dvpapi.exe

http://www.google.com/search?hs=tyX...idden+window"++"command+software"&btnG=Search

I see it present on other scanlogs where that is a reported issue.

But it's quite possible that your slow internet is due to the parental controls associated with McAfee -- if it is busy filtering.

You're 3rd party firewalll may be a factor too.

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.

RAM: 2048MB (PC3200 DDR SDRAM)

I doubt if I have a problem with viruses because I have McAfee and also the router of my home network has a built in fire wall.

I want to be able to get my computer running like new the same as if I took it to a computer repair store.

Do you all have some type instructions or tutorial or any resource on the Internet that I can read and get this done ?

Please send email to: [email protected] and I will come here to read your answer.

Thank You Much,

hmgarnett.

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.

Hi guys. I'm helping my girlfriend with her computer. You've been very helpful in the past! The main issue is that her computer is running so slowly that it's almost impossible to use it when not in safe mode (which is the only way I was able to run these scans). I noticed she had utorrent installed which I removed though she states she hasn't messed with torrents in a long time. Please help if possible. Thank you!

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.

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

Thank you for your help

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.

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.

I just cut and paste them to D...you will have to change the path.

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.

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.

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.

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

My computer runs very slowly, often lagging for up to 15 seconds while I'm simply trying to move the mouse. I've tried running different kinds of scans and the computer crashes before they can finish, giving me a frozen black screen with a cmd cursor in the corner.

Panda crashed the computer before it could finish, so I re-ran it to about the point it was at before it crashed and stopped and stored the log.

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

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...

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 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

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

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!

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.

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!!

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.

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!

I notice that you have more than one virus program running...sometimes they interfere with one another....also, you could try disk clean up, a registry clean up, and a defragmenting.
There are a lot of free programs that can do registry cleaning and disk clean up of junk files...Good Luck!

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.

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 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!

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

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, 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!

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: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NeroCheck] C:\WINDOWS\system32\NeroCheck.exe
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE
O16 - DPF: {15AD6789-CDB4-47E1-A9DA-992EE8E6BAD6} - http://static.windupdates.com/cab/D...bridge-c337.cab

Restart. Any improvements?

Hi everyone,My computer has suddenly started running very slowly and I think it may have started with a possible trojan infection or malware isue.

A:Computer Running Very Slowly! (HJT help please!)

hi, welcome to TSG.
go to start/run/type msconfig/click ok/click startup, uncheck the boxes for these programs!

Modem Event Monitor
ATI Control Panel
jusched.exe
CyberLink
iTunes
QuickTime Task
MSN Messenger
Microsoft Office

go to this site and download these tools and once you get both
adaware Se 1.6 and spybot, update both of them.

Set adaware to do a full system scan and deselect, "search for neglible risk
entries". Click next to start the scan. Delete everything adaware finds.

reboot and now run spybot

Spybot: Search and destroy.

Delete what spybot finds marked in red. After updating spybot hit the
immunize button.

reboot again
With CWshredder close all browsers and programmes and select the FIX button.

Go here and download Microsoft Antispyware Beta. First in the top menu click
File then Check for updates to download the definitons updates.

After updating look in the right side of the main window under "Run Quick
Scan Now" and click Spyware scan options. In that window put a tick by Run a
full system scan and then put a check by all three options below that then
click Run Scan now.

When the scan is finished, let it fix anything that it finds (have it
quarantine the items that have that option rather than delete just in case.
It is a beta program and there may be false positives)

Restart your computer.
All tools can be downloaded at the link below and found on that page!

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?

Hi,

First of all, I am using a Dell Inspiron 600m. Recently I've began having problems with my computer running slowly. Since I have plenty of room left on my hard drive (19 GB) I think that there may be something on my computer, so if someone could please take a look at my logs I'd appreciate it. I tried running the Panda scan, but for some reason it would not work, so below is my DSS log.

Thanks!

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

Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 7300GT (512MB)

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.

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.

A:Solved: Computer running very slowly

Answer Match 62.16%

Alright so recently my computer has been running more slowly than ever. I'm wondering is it because my RAM? my processor? or maybe my computer is overheated? Most of the time my CPU usage is at 100% when opening a program, and almost always at 100% when I lag during games. Sometimes, (playing Warcraft 3 TFT) the game will randomly just freeze and I am forced to hit the restart button. It is immensely frustrating, especially to other friends whom you've just ruined the game for.

Another thing I just started to notice is that sometimes my screen will randomly flash. It turns to a black screen for a split second then returns to normal. This makes no sound, and I'm mainly seeing it while playing Warcraft 3.

Also one last problem (sorry!) is that sometimes when I have been running a program for a long time (over a few hours or so at once) then decide its time to quit out or open up something else. I'll hit "alt+tab" to switch to another running program. This causes and extremely abnoxious high pitched sound to go off which seems to be coming from my monitor. It makes this sound while switching programs and while in a black screen for a split second >_< Also, when I switch back to a program that takes up a lot of memory, such as Warcraft 3, via "alt+tab", after running another program, Warcraft 3 will open back up but be extremely laggy and choppy for. Think of it as accelerating a car. At first it will be extremely slow and laggy but then ... Read more

My laptop has been running very slowly recently, and a lot of the time it will freeze when I attempt to open a new page/application. I'm assuming that this is because I have either Malware or viruses on my computer. My laptop is running Windows 7. I used to have AVG on this computer, but it expired and I didn't renew it, now an occasional message from AVG pops up, but that's it. I have not taken any other steps to fix this problem yet. Any help is appreciated!

Hello,

I'm using a Compaq presario 2190 with an intel celeron and Windows XP. Some time ago, I had a really bad virus and brought it to a local computer repair shop. The technicians fixed my computer, or atleast as much as they could because lately, it takes forever to do anything, including: shutdown/restart; browsing the internet; opening any programs on my computer. I noticed that even with no other programs running other than those started by the OS at startup, the system idle process occupies the CPU at or above 90% but when I look under the performance tab, the CPU is running at around 40-50%. Maybe this is part of the problem, maybe not, just trying to give you guys some more information. Also, i have Norton Anti-virus installed and just upgraded about 1 month ago, it doesn't catch anything wrong. I have also tried to delete other programs I don't use to free up memory but it hasn't helped. Now, I am unable to check my mail or even visit the hotmail.com website, but I'm not sure if these 2 problems are linked.

I had originally posted in the malware removal section, but after 4 days without a single reply even after bumping, I'm assuming i posted in the wrong section??? However, I posted there because I believe my problem is virus-related. Any and all help would be greatly apprectiated, or even a reply at this point. Thank you in advance.
 

A:Solved: Computer running slowly

Norton does not catch everything - it is written in stone, some archeologists recently found...

You need to download, install and run the free versions of AVG anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-rootkit.

Download superantispyware and do the same. Also do the same with Spybot Search and Destroy.

Download CCleaner (cr*p cleaner) and run its cleaner feature (registry cleaner works great for me but some people do swear at it rather than by it)....

Overall, I, if you, would just backup everything I need and format the hard drive.

Let us know...

A McAfee alert popped up about a potential unwanted program and I blocked & removed this program. However, when running SUPERAntiSpyware following this, a lot of files showed up as corrupted or malicious (mainly files containing the name VUNDO).

I rebooted and re-ran SAS. Though the number of corrupted/malicious files was lower, it seemed that the same files reappeared.

Please help, I really have no idea what to do and my comptuer is still running slow.

*EDIT* I forgot to mention that my Windows XP Automatic Update is also now turned off (not by me)

A:Computer Booting And Running Very Slowly

Hi,
For the past up to few months my computer has been running unusually slowly and badly. The specs are:

OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3, 32 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 2.80GHz, x86 Family 15 Model 4 Stepping 7
Processor Count: 2
RAM: 2047 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS, 256 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 39997 MB, Free - 5980 MB; D: Total - 117059 MB, Free - 59456 MB;
Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC., P5VD2-VM SE, Rev x.xx, MB-1234567890
Antivirus: AVG Internet Security 2012, Microsoft Security Essentials, Updated: Yes, On-Demand Scanner: Enabled

The problems I have been experiencing are:

Unusually long boot-up times - sometimes when I restart it takes upto a minute for the first black screen to even come up, HOWEVER sometimes it is at normal speed.
Occasional freezes while processes are going on - they're getting more and more frequent and the only way to fix it is to press the restart switch.
Games have all been consistently having slow framerates. Lowering the settings the minumum does not work to increase the framerate at all. When I used to play the same games before at the same settings, it worked fine.
Sometimes it takes a long time to even start a program like word. Again, the time it takes varies from a few seconds (as expected) to even a few minutes.
Just generally everything is going MUCH slower than should be with the drivers it has.

I've done a lot of things to try and fix it, including:

Lately, my computer has been running more than frustratingly slowly. I'm almost hoping I have some kind of infection rather than having to face the reality that my computer is just out dated, so I here I am with a hijackthis log. Or maybe there's running processes that I could kill...anything to speed up this piece of junk.Some of the symptoms of this slow thing: Explorer is right now running at 17,284K, which seems to be excessive, but I can't say for sure. Also, my CPU usuage is routinely at 100%, and this hasn't always been the case. It is only 1.4 GHz, but that seems like it should be enough for everyday browsing. Anyway, here's my HJT log.
