Computer runs faster when I disable what runs in the background?

Q: Computer runs faster when I disable what runs in the background?

Hi,
My computer has been running slow, especially when I do a restart, it takes forever to restart. I went into msconfig and disabled what is in startup. Question is what do I need in startup and what can I get rid of? and how do I remove something from startup?
Also what is a good free firewall to use?
Thanks Dano

A: Computer runs faster when I disable what runs in the background?

Here is a good explanation: http://netsquirrel.com/msconfig/
There are certain (and important) items that should run at Startup.

If you are unsure of some of the entries you see listed, this is a great website to research them: http://www.castlecops.com/StartupList.html
It tells you what the process is, and if it's necessary to run at Startup.

A good firewall (and free one) is Zone Alarm: http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/company/products/znalm/freeDownload.jsp

Every now and then (every 5 minutes or so) my cursor will turn into the hourglass for a split second, then turn back. I'm assuming this means something is being initiated in the background periodically. Over time, this slows down my computer. At the very least, it makes me lag tremendously in online games for a few seconds (which makes CS and UT2004 pretty much unplayable).

I've tried running the latest AdAware and Spybot: Search and Destroy. Neither solved the problem. These seem like symptoms of generic spyware, but I've still been unable to put an end to it. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

(I'm using windows XP, if that makes any difference)

I'm not sure what to do about this situation. My wife and I are both connected to the internet through a NVidia Alltel wireless card attached to an MBR1000 wireless router. I am on a Toshiba Satellite with 3gb ram on a 32 bit, 180gb hard drive she is on a Gateway mx6422 with a 789 MHz, 448 mb of ram. Now the issue is when shes online alone the internet works fine for her I mean we know it isn't cable nor broadband so we expect some lagging issues. Normal speeds being 250 kb/s to 350kb/s on the download to 100 kb/s to 120 kb/s on the upload, on Speedtest.net. However, when I connect online her connection is almost nil. I seem to run fine and load things is a somewhat timely manner however for her getting webpages to appear is a hassle.

Do we need to upgrade her ram? Is there something I can do to rectify this with software?

ps. Let me know if you need more information, and I do not know all of the technicalities when it comes to something like this.

Thanks

You may need to check the QoS capability of that router and adjust it to allow more equal sharing of the connection. If it's QoS isn't up to the task, you may have to consider putting a different router in front of it to balance the load.

Hi -

A lot of people will probably disagree with my statement, but I feel confident it will provide sufficient information, so here it goes.

I think depending on your knowledge of hardware/software, a computer can do anything, despite the OS. If you've got the money, you can invest in anything.

Also, you're computer could run anything, even Crysis. Try 7, it's neat.

I have a client with a tricked out Dell xps Studio (6GB memory) who is suffering with very long times to print. Even sending a printer test page from within windows (Vista home premium 64) takes about 30 seconds before the sent notice appears on the screen. The printer is a Epson Stylus Photo1900 (large format printer). No other programs running but background stuff kept to a minimum. I have tried shutting down the spooler and printing direct, but it is slow as well.

I loaded and ran Process Explorer from Sysinternals and the only thing out of the ordinary is the constant opening, running and ending of dllhost.exe. This occurs every few seconds and lasts only for a few seconds.

I know there are discussions in posts elsewhere in the forums of the possible impostor DLLHOST.EXE, and when I left the client's I had set MS Security Essentials to run a full scan to see if it would find anything, but I have not yet been to see the results.

Does anyone else have any ideas on this?

I am using Windows XP, Explorer 6. At times I can hear something running and slows down or even stops what ever I am doing at the time. Sometimes just for a couple seconds but sometimes longer. Last night it ran for a longer period of time so I went Ctr/Alt/delete processes. I found that the svchost.exe system memory usage was running around 50,000 and normally it is around 19,500. I do not have any scans set to run automatic and the only thing that I have running all the time is Super Anti Spyware.
Any suggestions as to what causes this?

I noticed this problem a week or so ago. And, I'm at my wits end.
 
Internet Explorer will show up in the applications tab of my task manager as a blank page. It opened by itself and is not visible nor can I end the process or switch to it. In the processes tab I can end the process but also noticed that it goes to several different websites and it's consistent with the ones it goes to, usually the same ten or so. I do NOT use Internet Explorer. I use Firefox.
 
It opens tons of connections I've noticed when looking at it via system explorer. I have plenty of antimalware programs on my computer that I thought would get rid of it, but to no avail. Although I cleaned my computer of a lot of other little threats.
 
Also occurs in safe mode with networking.
Disabling Internet Explorer from the control panel stops the problem but re-activating it brings it back.
There is usually a long period of time after ending the processes that it will show up again.
Will always happen within an hour after startup or restart.
I'm fine with leaving Internet Explorer disabled, but I just can't stand knowing that something is messed up.

I have the option checked in the settings. However, each time I close Chrome, and reopen it, it takes much longer than it used to.
Also, I'm automatically signed out of Lastpass upon closing the browser, which used to not happen when Chrome was running in the background.
I also noted that there is no Chrome icon in the system tray, like there used to be when chrome ran in the background.

I've tried a complete uninstall (wipe using Revo), and reinstall, to no avail.

Has anybody else successfully gotten Chrome to run in the background?

My computer was severely infected today, and while I've managed to deal with most of them and get my system back to normal, I've noticed that an IEXPLORE.EXE process starts up by itself and runs in the background for no reason(I don't use IE).

There's also no actual IE window running, only the process itself.
I tried killing the process but after about 5-10 minutes it goes back up again.
I've scanned my system using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Spybot S&D and Microsoft Security Essentials, none of which have managed to find this threat.

Any idea how to get rid of that process?

My computer was severely infected today, and while I've managed to deal with most of them and get my system back to normal, I've noticed that an IEXPLORE.EXE process starts up by itself and runs in the background for no reason(I don't use IE).

There's also no actual IE window running, only the process itself.
I tried killing the process but after about 5-10 minutes it goes back up again.
I've scanned my system using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Spybot S&D and Microsoft Security Essentials, none of which have managed to find this threat.

Any idea how to get rid of that process?

Here are the log files:

Okay, I'm stuck in Internet Explorer because Firefox, when I click the icons, shortcuts, links and even the actual .EXE file in the Program Files, it opens, but no actual window appears on my screen, if I CTRL-ALT-DELETE and view 'Processes' tab, it shows that firefox.exe is running, but not visible, and it doesn't show up in the 'Applications' tab. I thought this would be a cache problem because cache's bug the hell out of me with downloading in firefox all the time. However, I cleared all the cache/temp files/history using CCleaner, but I dunno what to do next. It just wont work. Any suggestions are helpful, but as theres a storm at the moment, I may take a little bit to try them.

Thanks,
Sam

Thanks in advance for any help. I will check back and follow your instructions, your effort will not be wasted.This is the first time after many years that I've had any serious virus problems, I was out of town on vacation and when I came back I had a few warnings from Avast AntiVirus, even though I wasn't browsing anything. I clicked "Abort Connection" but I have no idea how long those warnings were up.It seems that IE is starting itself up and visiting sites and ads (Probably for more viruses/malware) and it also turns my .wav volume all the way down but I'm not sure if this problem is related. I use PeerBlock and I can see multiple http connections being blocked even when not browsing.Not knowing how serious it was, I ran Avast- nothing was detected. Then Spybot S&D- also nothing, then I tried the ESET online scanner and it found 4 infections, I selected the boxes after scanning to delete them, thinking the problem was fixed I restarted my PC and several minutes later I found that it was not. (All programs were updated with current data/definitions)I then downloaded Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and ran that (after disabling Spybot and Avast), it found nothing.------Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.46www.malwarebytes.orgDatabase version: 4307Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.55127/12/2010 7:19:43 PMmbam-log-2010-07-12 (19-19-43).txtScan type: Full scan (C:\|)Objects scanned: 329571Time elapsed: 1 hour(s), 10 minute(s)...

Recently my computer keeps finding trojans (with McAfee), which deletes them but when I restart my computer they appear again. Also, IE keeps running in the background, which i end using Task Manager but they just keep appearing. I have a feeling its the trojans or spyware but don't know how to sort it out.
I tried reading other posts but I can't understand the instructions, particularly the part about 'hijack this'?
Thanks for any help

I think something runs behind the scenes...forever in my computer. When I do control, alt, delete it doesn't show that anything is running but the computer sounds like it does when a program is running. As well, I tried to update my AVG but it wouldn't let me. It said a process was already running.

My son had a program called Steam installed. He said he unistalled it but when I search for Steam I get over 150 items connected to Steam but no unistall option. When I open his desktop the start up screen for Steam still shows up. I'm not sure if this is the problem or not but it certainly can't be helping whatever is going on in my computer.

Help!

I noticed when I started up my machine that the CPU monitor was pegged for quite sometime, and the disk was thrashing like a washing machine. I opened task manager and saw that wmplayer was running, though this was a startup operation. I killed the process, and it came back within a second. I killed it over and over but something was restarting it.

I then had the machine do a clean shutdown, and I got a bluescreen when it came back up. Luckily on the second boot, it came up fine, but once again, wmplayer came back to life and started trashing the HD again. This time I waited it out and after a few minutes it calmed down.

I'm thinking of uninstalling wmplayer, but figured I'd post here first, see if anyone knows about this.

I have the regular Vista file indexing disabled, btw. This is related to wmplayer.

Can anyone tell me why when I look at my task manager in Windows I see two IE8 windows running when I only have one browser open? Both my XP & Vista computers are doing this. I've checked for malware over & over but nothing. I notice one of the browsers runs normally but the other one is constantly using massive resources & slowing down my system really badly.

This only started the moment I upgraded to IE8 on both computers.

Thanks!

Hi, sorry for the delay, if you still need assistance,

Please click Here to download HijackThis to your desktop.

Click the Download button. When the Trend Micro HJT install box appears, double click on the HJTInstall.exe. Click on Install.

It will be installed by default here: C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis

A shortcut to the application will also be placed on your Desktop.

The program will open automatically after installation.

You can double-click the icon that was placed on the Desktop to run subsequent HijackThis scans or you can use the icon inside the folder. The folder HijackThis is where you will find the HJT logs that you save. When you use the application to remove anything, you will also find the backup copies made by HJT inside this folder.

Click on "Do a system scan and save logfile" When the log pops up in Notepad, copy and paste that file back here.

Firstly I would like to say hello and good day to all. I am not sure if I am posting on the right forum because there are like 5 different windows 7 forums but i choose this on because the websites looks nice , It seems alot more active then others, and i think i have used it before.

Anyway to the question. Are there any antivirus programs are ondemand only(Or can be used as an on demand scanner preferable it doesn't run any services in the background unless the program itself it launched). I don't really need the real time protection (My choose) But an ondemand scanner would be nice. I wanted to use MSE because it seems simple to use and microsoft made it ( I would assume this is would be an ok antivirus to use considering it was made by microsoft...) But it is very stubborn when it comes to changing it service to manual(It just flat out will not let you)

A:Antivirus that runs when I want it to. Ondamand no background service.

Actually, you do need real time protection. Otherwise, you will catch viruses only after you have been infected and the nasty little buggers have had time to wreak havoc with your system and data. Also, it's much easier to keep viruses out than it is to get rid of them once you have them.

Having real time virus protection is analogous to being vaccinated against a disease. The vaccination keeps you from getting the disease whereas, once you have the disease, it can be difficult to get rid of and, before you do get rid of it, assuming you even can, it can do some really serious damage or even kill you.

I have read many of the threads on this topic but will repost, as I know you may need specific computer info. IE keeps restarting as a process when I have no browser open. I can kill the process in the task manager but it will always restart. I am constantly getting a popup from Avast AV saying a "Malicious URL has been blocked" (so far it has been showing IP address 64.111.211.158, process iexplore.exe) and Malwarebytes will also popup the same type of message, but with IP address of 64.120.141.163. As soon as I see this message I CTRL-ALT-DEL and see iexplore running as a process - I kill it but it always returns.

I have a problem. On startup, three Iexplorer.exe start to some add site. I go to my ctrl+alt+del and end the processes and they won't start back up until the computer is restarted. Also my bandwidth is being almost completely used up though I've checked my resource monitor and nothing suspicious is running. In fact, nothing suspicious is ever running and its becoming very frustrating. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Also, upon boot up of GMER.exe I had a window pop up saying "c:\windows\system32\config\system: The system cannot find the file specified" and upon attempting to run the scan I received another message "c:\windows\system32\config\system: the process cannot access the file because it is being used for another process"

Hello,

I have Windows XP Pro SP2.
I have run a complete system scan with Avast, Registry Mechanic, Ad-Aware, and superantispyware with no luck.

As the title states when I startup and log in, iexplore.exe is running in the background and sucks up a fair amount of my CPU.
I watch the Avast Web Shield and it shows me ie hitting a bunch of sites I have never been to before, mostly TV sites. I can also here the clicking links sound in my speakers and occasionally some noises when it hits a site with audio.
Once I just kill iexplore.exe in the task manager everything goes back to normal.

I'm not sure how it all started, but I initially noticed it because the task manager was disabled from my account! I figured out how to re-enable it, but now I'm stuck with this thing...

Your help is greatly appreciated,

Neil.

A:Iexplore.exe Runs In Background On Startup And Starts Visiting Sites

Hello NeilH and welcome to BC I see that you ran registry mechanic. The writers of registry tools don't know what specifically you have on your system, and if you don't know what you are doing, you can create real havoc with your computer or programs. One of the most important things to do when changing things in the registry is to back it up so you can reverse it if necessary. I completely hosed my Adobe products by using a registry cleaner. Fortunately, I was able to reverse what I'd done because I'd backed it up.-------It would be helpful if you posted the log from SUPERAntiSpyware. Did you run it in Safe Mode? Please indicate whether it was safe mode or normal mode when you post the log. In order to find the log double-click the SUPERAntispyware icon on your desktop.o Click Preferences. Click the Statistics/Logs tab.o Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log and choose the appropriate date.o It will open in your default text editor (such as Notepad/Wordpad).o Please highlight everything in the notepad, then right-click and choose copy.? Click close and close again to exit the program.Please post the log in your next reply.Orange Blossom

Hello! I have been working on my sick computer for a few days. The main bugger was a trojan calling itself System Security that completely took over--corrupted my Spyware Doctor and AVG, corrupted Microsoft Office, blocked all .exe files, hijacked my desktop, threw pop-ups like my computer was a pinata, and some other horrid stuff. After some researching, I restarted in safe mode and searched my system files for what I needed to delete and finally got it to where I could run my scans again. I used my AVG and Spyware Doctor to remove a total of 6 trojans and 700+ spyware/adware/malware/etc. files. I ran my registry cleaner and fixed/deleted a whopping 1600 invalid or incorrect keys. I have almost stopped my computer (and myself!) from crying. There are a few more things lingering on. 1) Google redirects links to random sites, and 2) my computer will freeze up and when I open Task Manager I find an Internet Explorer application running in the background on some weird joke site or ad site.

First, thank you for taking the time to assist me. I am extremely grateful for your freely given advice.

I contracted trojans of various sorts last week, and removed some initial infections with MBAM, SUPERAntiSpyware, Emsisoft and Avira. After reading other guides for spyware removal I did run Combofix, to no apparent avail, but I will not run it again unless requested to. I uninstalled previous versions of Java and updated to the latest. Some infection appears to remain.

Symptoms:
- IE runs in the background
- My "Temporary Internet Files" folder fills up with random junk (js, css, html, jpg, cookies) from web sites I have never visited
- Firefox (my default browser) loses its "default browser" status each time I restart the computer
- After one particular reboot, bleepingcomputer.com was blocked, but currently I can access it

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit, 4 GB RAM

Because my computer is 64-bit I did not run GMER.

Please note that although ?Torrent is listed in Attach.txt, I only used this program once a couple years ago and do not use it regularly.

I have two external hard drives, both in Vantec NexStar3 USB enclosures. The older 750 GB WDC Green drive runs HOT to the touch, the 4 TB, and the 2 TB before that, run pretty warm but never hot.

Why might this be, and would that much heat cause earlier than necessary drive failure?

A:WDC Green: 750 GB runs Hot, 4 TB runs Cool ???

Hi there,

The WD Green drives should be working up to 60 degrees Celsius, which could feel really hot to the touch. The older model of the drive might be working on higher temperatures that the newer, but should not exceed those 60 degrees. I advise you install some monitoring software to determinate the exact working temperature. If you have the option, check if the drive is running hot when used without the enclosure.
If a drive works hotter than expected, this may be an indicator of an ongoing issue and, yes, might lead to an unexpected drive failure. My advice: measure the exact temperature and do regular backups.
In the links below you will find the spec sheets of the different WD Green models, where you can check temperatures:

Not sure whether I'm putting this question in the right spot but here goes. I have a laptop running XP. Today when I tried to boot it up it told me my memory had changed and prompted me to press F1 to continue. I did and it started to boot Windows but then gave me message "One of your discs needs to be checked for consistency." I let it go ahead and it went through a 3 stage process -
1) Verifying files - it said complete
2) Verifying indexes - It corrected an error in Index $SII for file 9
3) Verifying security descriptors - On this last check after a while it started multiple messages of the type " Inserting index entry xxxx with ID yyyy into Index $zzz of file 9." There were hundreds of these messages and it just kept going with consecutively increasing numbers. Eventually I stopped it with the OFF button and then tried to reboot, but the same thing happened. Please help somebody. Should I let it just carry on running or am I likely to be losing my hard drive data as it does this check? Thanks, Dave

Dell Dimension E510 running Windows XP (service pack 3).

I bought this desktop computer about a week ago off of Craigslist. I was running late that day so I didnt get to ask much more than I already stated. When I used it the first week it was slow but tolerable. As the days passed the speed slowed even more to programs not even responding. I also would like to erase all the user information and settings so I can start new with a decent working PC. My knowledge in computer software and program procedures etc. Just let me know if you need more specific information.
 

A:Windows XP runs slow...if it runs at all!

If you bought that Dell Dimension E510 desktop from Craig's List and it still contains all the programs and "debris" and issues from its previous owner, you need to do a clean reinstall of Windows XP SP3 and get a fresh start with it.

What's the 7-character "service tag" number on one of the stickers?

What's the complete version of Windows XP that's on the Microsoft Certificate-Of-Authenticity sticker that has the product key?

Were you given any discs with that desktop?

A friend asked me to look at his computer. I'd never seen it before and really am not sure what it's state was prior to my receiving it.
It's a HP Mini loaded with XP SP3. It had some program that was irritating, a in sync or something to do with movies and music. I removed it which wasn't easy as the PC kept shutting down with a blue screen warning that was so quick, I never really saw what it was.
I was able to install Microsoft Security Essentials and after booting in a number of ways and multiple runs, most incomplete, I finally got a scan of complete nature and the program removed a number of Trojans and back door stuff.
I now have the PC running, it is giving an error message, something about delayed write in the temp folder, but for the most part, seems to accept prompts and commands.
There are no programs except for Microsoft security, IE and Outlook Express. No system tools, no restore points other than the one when I turned restore back on. All programs listed in add and remove seem to be gone as well.
There was no rescue disk made, no OS disk included and I think I've gone as far as I can without re-installing a new operating system for him.
Since I often come up against this, I'm just curious. Can viruses turn off restore points? Eliminate all programs such as was found on this?
Is there anything further I can do with this machine? Is it even worth bothering? LOL

go to http://www.merijn.org/files/hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip it and make sure it is unzipped & placed into it's own folder, not a temporary folder. Then doubleclick the Hijackthis.exe.
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.

Hello, I just got a brand new Dell Precision M4500 laptop with docking station + dual monitors from my employer. From what I understand, this is a pretty high-end laptop, with an i7 dual core processor and Quadro FX 1800M graphics. Its running Windows XP SP3. The issue I am having with it is that it runs like absolute garbage when I load pretty much any program. For example, when I start up AutoCAD (which this laptop is supposedly tailor-made for), for like 2 minutes the computer is borderline unresponsive as it loads the program, and once it finishes loading it still doesn't run great at all. Another frustrating experience is loading anything with java in internet explorer or firefox. It slows the computer down significantly while the java document or program is loading. I just installed the blackberry desktop software and that slows the computer down for 45 seconds or so while its starting up too.

To sum up, pretty much anything besides internet explorer seems like it is stretching the limits of this computer, which should not be the case at all. The computer does have full hard disk encryption, which I was wondering if that could slow it down, but I was assured that it doesnt. This computer is running as slow or slower than my old computer, which was like 1/10th the power of this one.

Now, on to what I believe is the source of the problem. I downloaded Process Explorer from the Microsoft website, and found that the process System is using ~... Read more

A:New Computer Runs Poorly

The nv*.sys files are usually nVidia drivers.

Check Device Manager. Click "show hidden devices"

Any flags ?

Uninstall, then reinstall the drivers.

I read about HD encryption. "They" say it doesn't slow down the computer, because the data on the hard drive needs "decrypting" for the computer to use anyways, so it's just a matter of HOW the data gets decrypted. So "they" say there's no slow-down. It's counter-intuitive, though. I have no personal experience with an encrypted drive, except that if your Operating System goes bad to the point where you can't boot, you have to decrypt the drive and then write it unencrypted before you can work on it. Load the encrypted drive as a secondary, have the encryption software installed on the machine, have the password (lol) and then re-write the whole drive as unencrypted. Fix the HD, then reverse the previous process.

A whole lot of messing around.

A computer with an I7 and XP both ? Doesn't that sound weird to you ? Bet it didn't ship that way. So maybe someone downgraded and failed to install correct drivers, or there are no drivers. Either way, seems to me your Tech people ought to be involved with this.

Have you run chkdsk ?
Turn off all non-MS Services and all Startups in "msconfig" and see if the problem goes away.

Hi
My laptop has all of a sudden become incredibly slow. I did not install or remove any soft- or hardware before this, it just happened. I have since cleaned the registry, defrag'd, ran SuperAntiSpyware, did and undid several system restores, and updated Firefox. I restarted the computer in "safe mode" several times. I even tried to disable all but the essentials in the startup window of the System Configuration Utility and disabled/re-enabled everything under the "services" tab. On a previous computer I had a problem with restore points keeping bad information, so I decided to delete all restore points when there was no improvement after going back over a month for a clean running machine. I'm at a loss as to what to try next. I hpe you have some suggestions. The HT log is attached. Thanks!

Hello again,

Thanks for providing the proper logs. We now have a better idea.

Please uninstall the following programs:

Search Settings 1.2 <========== is a foistware. More info here


Java(TM) 6 Update 7 <========= outdated, therefore a security risks having it installed still. Unfortunately, Java does not uninstall these older versions when you update, nor tell you that you should. Java(TM) 6 Update 15 , however, can be updated from the Java control panel Start > Control Panel (Classic View) > Java (looks like a coffee cup) > Update Tab > Update Now. An update should begin; follow the prompts.

LimeWire 5.1.2 <========This practice can make you vulnerable to data and identity theft. Please read this sticky:

Perils of P2P File Sharing

I would strongly urge you to remove it via Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel as suggested in our
NEW INSTRUCTIONS - Read This Before Posting For Malware Removal Help page.


Quote:




p2p programs like uTorrent, Bittorrent, LimeWire, Morpheus, etc., as they are a major conduit for malware and a likely source of your current issues. See this link

here you will find 3 to 4 subcatagories

you will want to check each of them for this is where windows keeps track of all errors
now you will want to make notes of the errors that have been recorded ( you do not have to make notes of double entries just of the dates of their happenings & how many there is)
you will get more information on the errors if you (right) click them / then select properties

do you have a Windows Xp cd, not the restore cd's that come with some systems, the cd will have the Windows logo & 3D hollowgram/image on it

if you do not maybe you can barrow one from a friend/family member/co-worker as long as it is the same version that is on your system

if you have (Windows XP Home Ed. sp2 ) then the cd will have to be that / if you have a cd with (Windows XP Home Ed. )you will have to slipstream (SP2 ) onto a disk that you create

Good Morning People,Why can I insert a downloaded version of an OS into one computer and it will auto-run, but when I insert it into another XP machine it will not even show up as being in the drive?One computer is running XP Pro and the other is running XP Media Center 2002. The cd will auto-run in the latter, but not even be detected in the XP Pro machine.Side note....both machines will auto detect an original MS OS so I know it's not a problem with my drive in the machine where it will not auto-run. As an example, I insert the downloaded version into the XP Pro machine, click on run, type d:\setup.exe and I get a message that reads "Please insert a a disk into drive D:".Thank you in advance for any help.

A:CD autodetects and runs in one computer, but not another.

I appears that you have downloaded a pi-rated version of Microsoft Windows.This is considered illegal and BC does not support or discuss this kind of topics.There may be a possibility that your downloaded version of Windows has trojans or malware loaded on it.

Hi there, please go easy on me, I'm not computer smart ;(.

I have a Packard Bell computer with a Nvidia graphics card (see my specs for proper info) which has been working fine with no problems for over 2 years. Then yesterday it just decided it didn't want to show anything on the screen when I turned it on. Now the computer would start (lights, fans) but not show anything on the screen. It also beeps at me, 1 long beep and 2 short beeps with basically no pause between beeps; which I tracked down to be a Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA).

I tried swapping out my graphics card with a "PNY NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 PCI-E Graphics Card" but to no avail. I have reseated the CMOS battery in an attempt to reset the BIOS and am running out of ideas.

Please feel free to ask questions about my system and i'll do my best to find an answer. Thank you for all answers on this matter.

I have read other threads similar to mine and believe that it is my motherboard causing the problem, but how do I know its my CPU and not my motherboard, or maybe even both? If there is no "beep" during start-up, does that mean problems with the motherboard? How can i tell if its my CPU causing the problems? Please help! I've had no desktop for about 2 months and I need it for school =[

About 3 weeks ago my CD recorder quit working, then I started getting a lot of pop ups. I ran a virus scan and found nothing. Then I found a worm attributed to a photo program in facebook while trying to check my startup programs (I wish there was a simple spot to look them all up, even this site doesn't have half of what is on my computer). I deleted it , and ran another virus scan with Avanquest and windows defender and found nothing. My machine started running a lot. I contacted Avanquest and they had me download a program from trend micro their parent company (I think) and it found 3 Vundo trojans and 2 fakehealer trojans. My machine still kept running, and I had a guy go thru it. He installed Malwarebytes and it found a few more pieces of malware, but I'm not sure what they were, but most of the popups stopped. I installed a new CD/DVD recorder/player and it didn't work. (a code32 error) the computer couldn't find mejuwe... system 32 file. The guy I had working on my computer fixed that, but my computer still runs a lot.

Hi all,
I posted in the xp forum looking for help with my slow computer. one suggestion was to post my hijack log over here. Your staff did a great job a few months back getting rid of spyware on my machine.
The problem-very slow to fully start up and slow to open programs. It was fast when I bought it but seems to have gradually slowed down.
computer is HP pavilion 503n
1.7 ghz
128 mb ram
40 gb hard drive-15 mb free space
spy bot, adaware and norton scans have been run. all show clean.
Please help if you can.
Thanks

My computer has been acting very strange recently. after playing a game such as Anno or dirt, I close the game and when i do my computer goes into overdrive, everything just works really really fast, but its an annoying fast. Im running windows 7, but i have a feeling that it is more of a hardware issue because after i restart my computer it gets stuck at bios with a black screen and a line blinking at the top left corner of my screen. not until i remove the cmos battery and reset the bios settings does my computer boot to windows. this only happens if i play a game, if i don't play a game my computer closes and opens without any problems.

A:Computer runs very slow

What I usually do in this case is "msconfig" and disable all my "startup" programs that I dont need and maybe even some services that arent "microsoft". Try that then reboot and add the programs 1 by 1 rebooting after each to find the culprit program/service.

In case you dont know how to "msconfig" all you do is:

1)click start
2)click run
3)type " msconfig " without the quotes
4)uncheck unwanted programs/services from the "startup and services" tab.

My friend bought his computer 3 to 4 years ago and it's running slow when he runs this game called Soldier Front. His internet is Charter (http://www.charter.com/Visitors/Home.aspx). He says it runs fast when he's out of game, to like check email addreses, and go on the web. Here is some information I took from his System Properties.

Microsoft Windows XP
Media Center
Version 2002
Service Pack 3
Dell Dimension DM 051 Intel (R)
Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00 Ghz
2.99 Ghz, 512 RAM
Physical Address Extention

Soldier Front System Requirements

Your computer must meet certain minimum requirements in order
to play Soldier Front.
Before you download and install Soldier Front, please verify your system specifications.meet or exceed the following.
Minimum Requirements Recommended Requirements
OS Windows XP
CPU Pentium III 833MHz Pentium III 1.2 GHz
Graphics Card GeForce3 64MB GeForce4 128MB
DirectX DirectX 9.0b
RAM 256MB 512MB
Browser 5.5 or higher
Local Disk Drive You must have a partitioned local disk drive named C:\
 

A:Computer runs slow.

Firstly, i would suggest running ccleaner to clean up any files which might be slowing down the computer.

To me, 512mb doesn't sound like much for gaming. I would have said 1GB for worthwhile play. The minimum requirements are usually just high enough to run the game, let alone play it well.

If its an internet issues, the firewall can often block certain games from playing effectively. Try disabling it for a small amount of time and playing the game to see if it works.

Also, what graphics card is he using?

Hi:
When starting my computer, vbc.exe runs in a command prompt. I never noticed this before and wonder if I should be concerned about it. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium. I did a full scan with Norton Antivirus, but that didn't correct the problem. The program still runs during startup. Is this a problem?

A:vbc.exe runs when starting computer

VBC.exe is Visual Studio (Microsoft)

Go to Start type in Msconfig locate Msconfig right click on it and select "Run As Administrator. In msconfig locate the Startup Tab then locate Visual Studio if present un-check it then clcik Apply then Ok. Now reboot when asked. When reboot is completed click on "Do not show this message again" click ok.

If all is well VBC.exe should not open when you load Windows.

Hello,
I really could use some help and I hope I am posting at the right forum. My computer is running really slowly. Internet pages constantly show "not responding" and take forever to load. Other programs are working slowly as well, not just internet stuff. Windows explorer restarts frequently as well. It seems that things got a little slower a couple of months ago, but now things are crawling. I am not getting any pop-ups, just running slowly. I tried a few things like disk clean up, removing old programs, etc. but nothing seems to work.

I tried to run gmer, but it wouldn't work. My computer keeps shutting down when I try to run it. It does it when I only check sections and c drive as well.

I do have a windows start-up disk.

Below, please find my dds.txt and attach.txt zip file is attached.

Ever since I changed the fan on my video card my computer runs slower. At first, I was getting even hotter readings on my video card than with my old card. Now, I leave the computer next to an open window and get reasonable temperatures, but my computer still runs slower. This all happened after I replaced the fan. Anyone know why?
 

A:Computer Runs Slowly

the fan may not be rated for that video card. what kind of video card do you have? what kind of fan did you buy? is it copper? copper fans are way better because they are more conductive. did you use the thermal grease when you installed the fan?

It takes up to 15 minutes to start up when you first turn it on. Often takes up to 20 seconds for programs to come up when you hit start. Virtually all software programs take time to come up, even little ones like Notepad. Have lots of slowdowns and freeze ups when using the internet, including trying to type in url's. Anytime the computer isn't in use for a little while, starting up again is always very slow with frequent little freeze ups. Lately, even when we first turn the computer on, we get a low on virtual memory warning in the lower right corner. Somebody told me this could be the problem. If so, why would it need more memory now than in the past when it worked ok? We actually deleted lots of files and some software programs not be used, including video games.

We used Spybot, Malwarebytes and our anti virus program a few days back and all 3 came up with no problems.

Thanks.

Hello, bonoabono
Welcome to TSF

My name is Billy O'Neal and I will be helping you. (Billy or Bill is fine, if you like.)
Please give me some time to look over your computer's log(s).
Please take note of the following:In the meantime, please refrain from making any changes to your computer.
Also, even if things appear to be running better, there is no guarantee that everything is finished. Please continue to check this forum post in order to ensure we get your system completely clean. We do not want to clean you part-way up, only to have the system re-infect itself. :)
If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
Finally, please reply using the button in the lower left hand corner of your screen.
Old topics are closed after 3 days with no reply, and working topics are closed after 5 days. If for any reason you cannot complete instructions within that time, that's fine, just put a post here so that I know you're still here. We get a lot of people who simply leave, and if there is no contact for that amount of time I will have to assume you have "vanished" .

My computer is running very slowly. My son was home about a week and a half ago and downloaded a bunch of music illegally (which we've asked him many times not to do). Since then it's been slow. I've run Cloudcare antivirus, Spybot, AdAware, EZCleaner, CCleaner and Malwarebytes. All of this hasn't really helped.

A:Computer Runs Slow

Hello metwo and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I do not see any signs of viruses or malware in this log. It is clean.

I'm not sure what was meant by "programes seemed to find alot of things
and removed them". What programs found alot of things and what was removed? Also, was BitDefender on this machine and then removed? It does not appear that the uninstallation was complete because there are still some entries hanging around that were not cleaned up.

Post back with some additional details and I will review the information when it comes in.

Cheers.

I am not sure what all information you will need. My computer runs super slow and freezes up while using the internet. I ran accross this website while trying to figure out how I might be able to fix things on my own. Below is my hijack this log and I will answer, to the best of my knowlege any questions you will have. I have downloaded superantispyware, malware bytes and hijack this after reading many posts on here. I previously had internet antivirus through at&t yahoo. I just bought Norton 2010 about 1 month ago.

Thanks so much,
Stacy

ANY HELP MUCH APPRECIATED.
 

A:Computer Runs Then Freezes

there could be several causes. the first thing to check would be the ram. run memtest ont he ram. it could also be damaged or missing system files. if you are running XP and have an XP Cd you can run system file checker. put the XP Cd in the drive and open a command prompt and type sfc /scannow then press enter this will run system file checker and replace any damaged or missing system files.

if you need more assistence you need to tell us about your hardware set up. ie; motherboard, CPU, ram, video, what version of windows, and what power supply and wattage.

I Have A New Dell Inspiron 5150 Laptop And Ive Had It For About 7 Months. For The First Few Months It Worked Fine But It Has Crashed A Couple Of Times. The Last Time It Crashed, Windows Would Not Boot It, Would Just Take Me To The Blue Welcome Screen And Thats As Far As It Would Go. I Had To Use Repair Option On The Windows Xp Boot Cd To Fix The Problem. That Seemed To Work But Ever Since Then The Computer Has Been Freezing Or Slowing Down Really Bad. Ive Tried To Use The Win Doctor On My Norton 2003 And Also Adaware And Spybot To Fix The Problem But Nothing. I Suspect That When I Try To Run Apps That Use Up A Lot Of Memory The Computer Seems To Not Be Able To Handle It. I Went To Protonics.com For Some Help But All They Did Was Fix My Windows Media Player Problem That Had An Error Message Whenever I Tried To Play A Movie Clip And It Would Always Freeze Or Slow Down When I Played Clips On Full Screen Mode. Please Help! Thanks..
 

A:Computer Runs Slowly

Just a thought,but have you thought about disabling startup items that you don't need to start on bootup.Having too much stuff in there can slow your system down dramatically.The only things I allow to start on bootup on my machine are my anti virus and firewall.

Also go here:http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm
and check out the service configurations,there are a lot of services that you can disable to help your system run better and faster
