AVG isn't so slim anymore!

Q: AVG isn't so slim anymore!

So I've been using AVG for years because its a pretty streamlined software and I think it works very well (...and it's free).

Over the past month or so though, I've noticed my fans are running at full steam far more than they should be. The culprit is a process called avgcsrva.exe, "AVG Scanning Core Module - Server Part". [It seems] Regardless of what software I have open, this process will hog 12% of my total CPU (Core 1 runs at a constant 75-100%).

I started logging the software I had open whenever this happened and after a few weeks I can't find the trigger (if there is a particular one). Closing programs and ending processes has had no effect. The only thing that frees up my CPU and alleviates the overtaxed fans is restarting the computer. I've even tried reopening everything immediately after the restart to see when avgcsrva.exe would start hogging resources and all was well. It's as if it's a completely time dependent glitch.

Does anybody have any idea what could be going on? I found a bunch of hits when I searched the process but nothing useful. I figured I would exhaust my go to resource (you guys) before I ditch AVG after all these years.

Any and all input is as always, greatly appreciated.

A: AVG isn't so slim anymore!

Get rid of AVG 2012(or whatever version you're using), then download and run AVG Remover to get rid of the leftover file and registry "debris", then download and install Microsoft Security Essentials 2.1.1116.0 - which is lightweight and user-friendly and well recommended in these forums.

Hi everyone,A few days ago, I suddenly couldn't update AVG anymore. It always gives me an error, telling me the connection with the server failed. I also noticed that I can't connect Limewire (P2P program) anymore and opening movie streams in Windows Media Player doesn't work anymore either.I searched some forums for a solution and I found someone with a similar problem, who also told he couldn't execute the "cmd" and "regedit" commands anymore. I tried it on my own computer and I can't run those things anymore either. When I try executing them, the explorer goes all weird and shuffles the program bars on the task bar.I've manually downloaded the latest updates for AVG, installed them and did a full scan, that didn't find a thing. I also ran AdAware, which said I had some malware, which I removed with it. Then I also ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, which found some more malware, so I removed it, rebooted my pc, but the problems still exist...I'm hoping someone can help me with this problem, because it's really anoying...Here's my HijackThis log:Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 20:37:26, on 11/05/2009Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16827)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\At...

I have a PS2 slim and I keep getting a "no disk" error message (whatever the term is). When we turn the system on, the browser screen comes on but when we insert a game or dvd the system won't read it. I hear the laser eye moving but the disk won't spin. Could this be the laser eye that is bad? Should I send it to Sony and have them fix it for $65. Is there something simple we could do?

Thanks

I have tryed to make a comparison about which method is better!!   I have downloaded  slim drivers and it seems to have about 20 drivers to update and whenever I check it in  throughtout device manager never seems to be necessary to update the driver which is listed in slim drivers  acording to windows search!!!   What to do in this case..!!!   Thank you alll!!!!

A:Slim drivers!!!

These all in one driver download programs can cause more issues then fix. If you do not see any yellow exclamation marks in Device Manager and your computer is running fine then you do not need to update your drivers. IMHO these driver installers are snake oil. If you need a driver, the first place to look would be the website of the computer or MB manufacturer.

The best way to update is to go to each website and install the most current manually. Yes, more time consuming, but the easiest way is not the best.
In addition, if you are not having problems there is no reason to update. If not broken do not fix it.

My PS2 Slim has been giving me problems for the past couple month playing Socom, It's an older version of the slim and I did not mod it out. It would freeze up every 30 minutes or so in the online game, then it became a bit more constant once I started using CodeBreaker for game cheats I think...
So, after awhile (Yesterday) I decided to clean everything up, I took some alcohol and Q-tip and swabbed the glass part of the lenses and around it, at this point I did not take my PS2 part, I cleaned everything visible around the laser when I open my tray...
I put my game in and it just kept saying 'Loading...' on the Device Manager, I then decided to take the whole ps2 apart and give it a good cleaning, I dusted everything off, blew out the fan, re-cleaned the laser and dryed it and tightened everything down and put it back together... Still I got the loading..., I went to bed and woke up this morning to find that now the Ps2 game loads on the device manager rather quickly but when I click on the golden disc the screen goes black then it goes back to the device manager and reloads the ps2 game again and it keeps doing this, the game doesn't load everytime I click on the golden disc it goes back to the device manager and loads the game up again... I tried another ps2 game and got the same thing.

So, I have this slim PS2 and it seems like overnight this happened. I turned it on the other day and the silver thing that moves on the inside of it, which I guess it suppose to read the disc, starts vibrating and makes a clicking sound against the black thing in the middle that spins the disc. It's not reading my games, but at the menu screen, it doesn't say anything like "Disc Read error". I can't take it to a Sony dealer or anything like that because I have no proof of purchase and my cousin already took the warranty sticker off -_- Can anyone help?

Hello. I bought a used ps2 slim a couple of days ago, and i found out that the laser was bad and it couldnt play any games. So i bought a new laser and installed it. The problem now is that it makes this loud clicking noise when the ps2 tries to read a disc. The disc does not spin either. I have looked for possible problems. Btw, it did read a couple of times before it spazzed out on me. It does that when the laser moves from the top, rest position to, down to read the disc, it stays at the bottom and spazzes out.

Perhaps the part that drives/holds/has to do with the laser is bad. That is assuming the laser you bought is good and compatible...

I've got win98 on a 340Meg hard drive. The drive isn't big enough. It is my little boy's computer. He's only got 5meg of space right now - and that's with only 5 little tiny games loaded up.

How can I make win98 smaller? Surely it doesn't really need all that 300meg?

There is a thing called 98lite which I've heard is only about 10meg !!! I don't imagine that would serve to run a computer, put it on the home network, access the internet (via the network) and play games for him... would it?

I imagine it is something like a win98 boot disk. But I may be wrong.

The question is: how can I cut down the size of my win98 installation on this 340meg disk, without breaking it?

Hello guys,

First, I do apologize if this is in the wrong section, but I figured you guys might be able to offer some guidance with this.

I purchased a second-hand PS3 from eBay, knowing that it had a dodgy optical drive (or at the very least, a dodgy Blu-ray laser), and I would like to know which drive will fit my particular system. I searched Amazon back in January and found a drive for ?30, however I'm unsure if it will work in this particular model. I guess I could go the replacement laser route too, but I've never taken a PS3 optical drive apart before.

The system will play CDs and DVDs just fine, but Blu-ray discs and PS3 games are very much hit-and-miss. I've found that leaving the system on for an hour or so and then trying usually makes it more reliable at reading the discs, but it's rather annoying to deal with it like that. Most of the time, upon entering a Blu-ray disc, the drive will attempt to read the disc and then make a noise that I think sounds like it's ejecting the disc, but it actually hasn't. In the GUI, the loading icon will continue to spin in the top-right until the drive just gives up.

Sometimes this will happen and the Blu-ray disc won't show in the GUI, sometimes it'll show, load and then get stuck at a black screen, and as previously mentioned, sometimes it'll work after a little while.

The model number in-particular is CECH-2503B. I've had the casing off and I haven't been able to locate any model number on the optical disc drive itself. Son... Read more

Wow, who should i blame and how maybe can I fix this:

I just bought a new Dell with windows 7. I download connectify since i only have 1 ethernet cord and the router is far away. I use connectify with the 360 and worked perfectly for weeks. Now, just a few days ago i downloaded and installed a free trial version of AVG after the mcafee expired. Ever since then my xbox reads that it CANNOT get internet access EVEN THO connectify catches the xbox signal and shows up in the connected clients window. So with that im assuming its not the xbox and AVG has done something to my computer. Is there any way to fix this, I did a system restore and for some strange reason it didnt work the first time, second time asked me to restore to another date (didnt say) and the free avg (which i downloaded later in the same day) is still on here.. did the system not restore? or would they not delete avg? any way i can get the xbox to retrieve internet.. this is annoying

anyway my problem is that any cd or dvd no matter what always reads as nothing. i can open the drive in explorer and nothing shows up even if i hit refresh.

i have tried removing the drive from device manager so it finds it again - still does the same thing

i did the same for the ide ata/atapi controlers - still does the same thing after it reinstall them

i have downloaded and installed firmware - no change

i have tried removing the drive and firmly putting it back in to make sure everything is connected - no change

i have tried a cd that cleans the lens - no change

i have even set it to boot from the dvd drive with a live cd in there and it just acts like there is no cd/dvd.

please for the love of all that is mighty in the universe please let me know if you can help.

If your suggestion is just to get a different one then please at least recomend one that is rock solid.

Very recently my Western Digital Hard Disk was found to be failing, and a Samsung equivalent in specification was fitted by the repairer with the contents of the old being cloned to the new.

Today I had an APC_INDEX_MISMATCH BSOD (but at this time I do not wish to pursue that). However, some comments about the net suggested that such crashes could be attributed to out of date drivers. Manage from right click My Computer says there is none out of date, whilst Slim says far morei, including that for an ATI Raedon display adapter fitted less than a year back.

Have I made a mis-assumption that APC_INDEX_MISMATCH BSODs are sometimes caused by out of date drivers? And, if I have not, which results do I believe?

Don't trust Slim Drivers, it often will offer drivers for non-existent hardware and may add unwanted software. I would suggest you go to the Dell support for your model and check for drivers there.

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Can anyone see any reason that I should not buy this? See any gotchas' in there?

Hi, I bought a Studio Slim 540s back in November 2009 and now I've decided I want to do a little gaming on it. However, it runs a bit hot and it doesn't have sufficient energy for a new card. I think I have a PSU that is at 300w.
I was looking at either a GTX 460 or ATI 5850. The 5850 is probably way too big for the case. So, I was thinking of replacing the case with something simple but effective. I like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119137&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-RSSDailyDeals-_-na-_-na&AID=10521304&PID=3136390&SID=
That case should be good enough, with perhaps adding a fan or two.
 
Now, on to my next problem. I'm keeping everything else in the Studio Slim at stock, the Quad Core, 6GB ram, etc. Only thing that is changing is the PSU and Graphics Card. However, I've heard Dell Mobos/PSU are proprietary and that makes the PSU hard to replace. I need around a 400w-500w PSU. What is compatible with the dell Mobo chipset? Help would be appreciated, thanks.
Some of my specs if it helps:
Mobo: Dell 0M017G A00 P45/P43 chipset
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300
Ram: Dual Channel 400mhz(DRAM frequency) DDR2 6GB
HDD: Western Digital 7200RPM 32mb Caviar Black
PSU: reads 10A 125v so I'm guessing its at 300w?
 

A:Replacing the PSU in a Studio Slim 540s

 deuce985
The Studio 540 Slim has a 250w power supply.
The power supply is a standard ATX format, but due to the constraints of the 540 Slimline case, it is a Dell proprietary unit, due to it's shape, size and wiring harness.
If the motherboard was installed in a standard ATX Mini/Mid Tower case, most generic standard ATX power supply units can be used, with either a 24-pin or 20+4-pin main motherboard power connector, with or without the on/off switch.You should be able to buy a compatible power supply from either a local or online computer store.Note: You require a power supply with four SATA power connectors.

I have a G-Drive slim that is model 0G02361. I sent this in to DriveSavers and they sent it back to me saying no data was recoverable. This was the email that I got from them describing the problem:

This hard drive has suffered severe media damage in what is known as a "head crash." This is a mechanical malfunction that causes the read/write heads to make physical contact with the surface of the disks inside the drive, causing abrasive damage to the magnetic coating that stores the data. Our engineers worked on the drive in our ISO Class 5 cleanroom, but because of the severity of the damage in this case, no data was recoverable.

I want to know if there is any other company I can try that can fix this and get the data off this drive. It's very important to me. I know some may have different kinds of tools than others but I don't work for any of them. I did buy the same exact model brand new from a seller on ebay. Would parts from that help in any way with this problem? How can I get this data recovered?
 

A:G-Drive slim Head Crash Problem

You can try sending it to another recovery place, but if DataSavers is correct then it simply may not be possible to recover the data. Unlike TV shows, data recovery in the real world is not always easy or possible.

Swapping parts on a modern drive doesn't work, you need to move the code that's unique on the drive and there are no parts that can fix a damaged platter; the part that needs to be replaced is the part that contains the data.

Hopefully in the future you will invest in a proper backup; multiple backup sources that are kept up-to-date and verified. Nothing beats a backup for data recovery.

I purchased System Mechanic for about $19. Works well. Improved my computer performance substantially. I subsequently downloaded the "free" Reimage and the Slim Cleaner Plus tools for comparison. The Slim Cleaner uncovered about 89,000 browser problems (no kidding! Over 89,000!) and a variety of registry, bad files, etc. problems that System Mechanic does not, and then asked me for about $40 to fix them. Reimage also uncovered a large set of browser, registry, bad files, etc. problems and asked for about $50 to fix them.

Who is correct? Are they each finding problems that the other does not? Or, is this just sales gimmicks? And, why can't Windows 7 uncover and fix these same problems?

A:System Mechanic vs Reimage vs Slim Cleaner Plus

Be very careful - these tools are designed around XP. Windows 7 does not require external registry cleaners/boosters etc. Many of these tools are gimmicks designed to make a quick dollar or two. Windows doesn't find any, because there probably aren't any. I think you may have been duped. I would recommend avoiding them.

Hi folks. I am looking to upgrade my video card from terrible to acceptable, perhaps even decent, though I don't want to get carried away given the limits of my system.

I have a Dell Inspiron 530S, with a pentium Dual-Core processor (E5200) 2.5g, and 4G of RAM. My power supply is, I believe, only 250 watts. I don't have a separate video card, just the Intel G33/31 Express Chipset Family.

The most graphic-intensive thing I do is World of Warcraft with the settings all the way down. Even that is a bit much given the slightly higher demands of the new expansion, so I am looking to upgrade to avoid freezing, crashes, or excessive lag (it would be nice to be able to turn the view distance and spell detail up even a bit, too.)

I think my processor and RAM are probably fine. I know the Intel Express Chipset is about as low-end as it gets, so nearly anything is an upgrade, but 1. I'm pretty sure the 530s will require a "half height" card (?), and 2. my 250 Watt PSU might be a serious limiting factor for most video cards while the slim case of a 530s limits my PSU options.

I poked around on Newegg and Bestbuy, but I'd feel much better if someone could make a recommendation for a Card, or perhaps even a card/PSU, so I don't end up making a stupid purchase. I'd love to spend $100 or less (e.g. if there's a decent card that wouldn't overtax my current system) but might double that if necessary.

Thanks in advance for any input.

A:Upgrade advice for VideoCard/PSU on a slim computer

The www.newegg.com site is a great place for researching and buying video cards. I've bought 3 of them there in the last month.

You might want to open the case and see how much room there is and if you need a low-profile video card and if you need an AGP or PCI-Express model.

The heat sink models tend to use less power power than the fan models, so you might want to research both models.

I'm not a gamer, so some of the gamers out there can probably give you more and better advice than me.

Hi all,
I feel like a dinosaur for even wanting to buy a Desktop since most ppl are looking to get laptops.. But I dont normally bring my laptop around anyways n a desktop just feels right..

I'm looking for a desktop that has a slim case, like the Dell 573s. I looked it up, it seems the max ramI can have on it is 4gb? Is this true? I thought Windows 7 64 Bit would take MORE than 4gb of ram? I am looking to possibly just get the Core 2 Duo or the Core 2 Quad processor.. Im sure the Core 2 Duo would just be fine, without spending the extra $50 on a Quad.. unless the quad would take more than 4gb of Ram.
I don't plan on playing heavy intensed games as much, but i do run a lot of smaller applications.. like i would have 6 browsers, maybe editing a video or making music for fun, and a game here and there. I just want to be able to navigate with speed and efficiency.. i hate lagging.

Lastly, im a little hesitant to even use WIndows 7, im afraid that my old versions of software may not be compatible with it.. such has Windows Office 2000, older paint shop progs,.. what about HOMEBREW softwares? If i want to mess around with emulators and such.

I'm open to other slim cased desktops due to space- HP, Lenovo, Asus?. My budget's $400-500. Do these these motherboards have PCI Express slots? Just incase i want to upgrade the video card.
Or should I just buy a custom one off Ebay or something and call it a day?

I don't know which notebook model you have, but I'm finding random posts online about HP notebooks only being able to drive one analog monitor at a time, so you may be out of luck there. That docking station firmware update is for Displayport hub built into the docking station.  It can only be updated if you're connected to at least one monitor using displayport.  And it has nothing to do with analog port anyway, so it won't help you even if you could update the firmware.

Hi guys,

Essentially the story is this: around two years ago, I managed to knock a shaker of salt onto the top grill of my Dell Studio Slim. I watched a pretty large amount drain into the machine (which was on) before snatching it up.

It carried on working until last winter, when (because my bedroom gets so cold) it stopped working. I then left it in front of a heater for about a week, and this seemed to solve the problem. Now winter is upon us, it's stopped working again. The PSU shows slight signs of corrosion, and being at the bottom of the machine, there's a chance that that is where the salt ended up. Other than that I've dusted the inside, reseated the hard-drive and RAM and cleaned the main fan.

The problem is this: I press the power button, and it begins to boot but then shuts off, before turning on again with the fans going at maximum speed. The front light stays amber.

Anyone have any idea what the problem might be? Other than the salt, obviously.

Do I need to wait for Spring?

Thanks,
Tycal
 

A:Spilled salt into my Dell Studio Slim

Ive heard of a lot of things being spilled in a computer but not salt.I would have to say the salt probably corroded a lot of things such as the motherboard. Waiting for spring isnt going to do it any good.I would take it somewhere and have it looked at and see what the problem is and if its even worth fixing.

Is it possible to upgrade the Inspiron 660s slim desktop to a better processor after purchasing it?  The Dell specifications say it is compatible with Core processors up to i5, 2nd and 3rd generation processors, but I'd eventually like to up it to a i7-2600k.  I have the brand new boxed processor from a computer build i was going to do, but never got to do.

The dell specs also specify it uses a Intel B75 express chipset, and according to the Intel website is compatible with i7-2600k.  the 2600k processor is a 95W processor, while it looks like the smallest processor, celeron is a 35W processor.

is it possible?  Has anyone else done this?

A:Upgrading the dell Inspiron 660s slim desktop

Hi jlerng,
According to this Intel page, the i7-2600k is compatible with the B75 Express chipset. However, your system specs say only up to an i5 for the 660s. This is probably due to a power limitation. This is one of the many reasons we do not recommend the slim desktop systems for those who are thinking about later upgrades.

A couple days ago I received the HP Envy ? 15t Slim Quad Laptop (Product # T1P54AV) that I ordered from HP?s web-site.  This computer comes with a Windows 10 operating system already installed and is 64 bit.  Right away, I noticed that there is a crackling static noise that comes out of the upper right speaker area.  This noise does not come out of the left side of the speaker and is not the same noise as the fan noise.  It starts as soon as I turn on my computer, even if I don?t have any programs open.  The noise can sometimes get louder if I go to busy web-sites that have a lot going on (i.e. videos, etc.).  And, the noise is still going even when my speakers are on mute.  I also have not changed any of the speaker settings on this computer.  What is causing this issue?  Also, last night I got a number of error messages and IIRC, they said that my display driver was crashing.  Today, I went to Control Panel > System and Security > Security and Maintenance > Problem Reports and it already has a number of entries including the fact that my computer has already had 6 Windows hardware errors. Why is crackling static noise coming from my computer and why am I getting multiple hardware errors?  These issues are very concerning to me and I don?t know why my brand new computer is experiencing them.   I am afraid that these issues are going to get worse over time.

I have the slim Desktop model, which uses a PSU: http://www.tdhcomputers.co.uk/ekmps/shops/tdhcomputers/images/f4e2_1.jpg
It's 210W. My graphics card has a 300W min. It still runs the card without a problem, but I know I need to upgrade the PSU. My problem is: Dell doesn't make a replacement for the model I have. Is there any PSU out there that would fit and give me 400/500W? If not, what case could I put the motherboard in that would house an ATX PSU as well? Thanks in advance.

Hey,
I tried to search for an answer to my question already but nothing showed up
I bought a Synology DS411 slim NAS which I want to access remotely. I made a DNS and did portforward in my router (Cisco by Linksys WRT160N v2. The problem is I am part of a bigger scientists network where all ports are closed so it wont work. I even tried installing a OpenVPN server on the NAS and then connect though that but with no luck.
If you need any more information please let me know!

Greetings from the newest member,
Jakob

Would you elaborate more on this scientist network? It seems like you don't have adminstrative privileges on this network. Have you contacted the admins to ask them to help you with your issue?

Hi MilanSan:

 

Thank you for your post. I will help any way I can!

 

I understand that you are having an issue with connecting the HP Elitebook 840 G1  to a docking station with external monitor.  I know you said it is new, so have you done all the Windows updates? You have the option to run the HP Support Assistant and or the built in Windows troubleshooter to aid in resolving issues and updating drivers.   Follow these steps to run the troubleshooter:


a. Press Windows key + C on your keyboard to show the Charms bar.
b. Type Troubleshooting and click Troubleshooting under Settings.
c. Now type Hardware Troubleshooter in the Search option.
d. Click on Hardware troubleshooter to run the troubleshooter.

 

If this has not resolved the issue, here is a link to the HP software and driver page for your computer. Drivers, Software & Firmware for HP EliteBook 840 G1 Notebook PC  You can manually check to ensure you have the latest drivers.

 

If you are still experiencing the difficulty you could do  a recovery, to  restore to factory. HP PCs - Performing an HP System Recovery (Windows 8).

If none of the above have resolved this, I suggest calling the HP technical support.

The Portge M780 supports 1 x Ultra Slim SelectBay so you should be able to get such device from a Toshiba Authorized service partner.

I need help looking for a Graphic Card for a DELL Vostro 230 Slim Tower to replace the integrated Intel GMA X4500. The manual says it can take the NVIDIA GeForce G310-512MB, but i can't find it anywhere to buy as it is an OEM graphic card.

I've read that the NVIDIA GeForce G310 is identical to the GeForce G210. So i go and purchase it to find that it is to big and DOE'S NOT FIT !!!

Has anybody got any other suggestions ???

Here are my Tech Specs...

A:Graphic Card for DELL Vostro 230 (Slim Tower)...

The reason you can't find the G310 to buy is that Nvidia made it only available to what is known the OEM channel, basically means it can only be bought from system builders (Dell, HP, etc). Spec and build-wise the G210 and G310 are identical, so in what way does it not fit? If it is the back plate bracket that is too long the card should have come with a second shorter one (2 of them actually) like the ones shown here,

Moved off metal surface i.e. table and it works.

From the review Here- Both [Keyboards] use magnetic connections, rather than physical hooks, buttons or latches, making for an easy transformation between modes.
