My Dell laptop which runs vista is painfully slow. I have McAfee, Adaware, Spybot and all the Vista security. I have tried Mozilla software to see if e-mail and internet would load up faster but no luck. Here is my Hijack this log, which looks pretty full to my inexperienced eye. Any helpful hints would be most welcome.

PROBLEM:

I recently went on vacation. While I was gone (for a month) my computer wasn't used at all. In fact, it was unplugged etc.
When I left my system was running perfectly. Pages loaded quickly, downloads were lightning fast...

Since I've been back, however, my computer suddenly runs VERY slowly.
At times it is painfully slow.
- Pages take minutes to load (or time out)
- Simple tasks like looking at photos on facebook are essentially impossible, given the ridiculously slow speed
- I have been completely unable to download anything at all. The downloads don't even get to 1% with 1/2 hour passing...

I'll try to get a HiJackThis log to post here as well, but at present, I'm unable to get it to load in Vista.

Any help that anyone could provide would be great
I'll try & reboot now & get that HiJackThis log to post as well.

Hello 
My husband uses Chrome and it is running very slow. Firefox seems unaffected.
 I recently wiped my computer after a nasty virus and have been trying out various security systems recently trying to decide what I want to buy. Currently using trial version of Avast. I am guessing that I need to take some of those off and would love any advise to get rid of unnecessary programs. I am looking at you, HP! 
In looking at other threads I read potential helpers like to have people download and run speccy and minitoolbox to spot what is wrong. Thanks in advance for your help, A

You should only have one active antivirus installed at any time.  Multiple antivirus programs can cause false positives, it can even cause your computer to become unstable resulting in BSODs.
 
Your D: drive has 0% free space.  It is full.
 
How did you reinstall Windows?
 
Is Firefox running slower than Chrome your only problem?

The short version of my question is exactly what the topic says-- Can I install a Dell-provided OEM version of Vista on a non-Dell computer?

But, here's the wordier version giving context, if anyone's interested.

About 10 months ago, I guess, I got a Dell Vostro that came with Windows Vista Home Basic. However, I had no interest in Vista (because I already had a Windows machine) and the very first thing I did was install Ubuntu on it. I still have the Vista reinstall disk, though, which, to my memory, hasn't been used.

Now I'm planning on getting a barebones system and upgrading what I see fit. For the time being, I'm going to use the Windows 7 RC, but I'd like to get the uber-great upgrade deal that they're having to pre-order either the Business or Home Premium version upgrade. So, to do that, I'd need an XP installation or a Vista installation. Is there any reason, legal or software-related, that I wouldn't be able to install Vista using that disk that came with the Vostro?

I heard somewhere that sometimes if you try, it'll say something like "This is not a Dell computer, you evil, evil person" and refuse to install, so I wanted to make sure before I pre-ordered the upgrade. I don't want to get the upgrade and have nothing to upgrade, of course.

I just spent an hour on the phone with Dell and he's telling me I need to do a clean install of my original operating system in order to get my system back up to speed. No way I'm doing that, and I know you guys can help get things back to normal. So it is a windows problem that is making system run very, excrutiatingly slow - I mean frustratingly slow.

What should I do first? Would a hi-jack log be helpful? I am running one now to paste onto this email.

A little while ago I put a new 1TB hard drive in my Dell Inspiron N5050 to replace the old 500GB one. I used the Windows backup program on the computer and the information on the Windows website. I transferred the system image to a backup hard drive, then installed it onto the new hard drive. I've tried a disc cleanup, defragmenting the hard drive, and I've run all the diagnostics that Windows has and still this thing is SLOW!
 I'm running Windows 7 64 bit, my computer has an Intel Core I3 processor. I still have the old hard drive with everything still on it and I still have the system image on the backup hard drive. Please if anyone can help, I would GREATLY appreciate it, this thing is driving me nuts (My OLD Inspiron 1420 with a Core2 Duo processor runs circles around my N5050!)

Alright, so today i replaced my dad's powersupply and got an "Error Loading OS" Message for his system when it previously had XP on it. So i said forget messing with it ill just put vista on it and call it a day.

After putting the vista disk in it seemed to go pretty slow compaired to how it was on mine. But in the end it took about 1hr to 1hr and 1/2 to install completely. After installing it took forever to do the first boot up and after it booted i could not move the mouse more than one direction every 2 minutes or so. The system would apparently freeze or become completely bogged down for no reason.

So, this is a fresh install of Vista on a fairly good machine. Any reason why it is running as though it has the worst specs in the world?

PS: It runs fine in Safe Mode.....

The System configuration is as follows:

OS: Vista Ultimate 64bit
MoBo: Asus P5NSLI
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
Graphics Cards: Nvidia 8600GT x2 SLI
Hard Drives: 3 various, one 80, one 200g, one 300g
RAM: 4gigs of corsair or something of the form.. namebrand to say the least

I Cant think of what else might help... it is doing this for NO REASON what so ever that i can find.

running a Windows Vista network. no problems with 3 wirless computers running Windows XP. and no problems printing remotely using the desktop running Vista. new Dell laptop is running Vista and trying to add a printer, it doesn't see any of the printers. At first it didn't show the wired desktop on the laptop under the network. On the wired desktop under network, It showed the laptop as a music sign and not a computer icon. We deleted the workgroup name and retyped it and changed it to a private computer. have disabled both firewalls. The laptop is running Trend Internet Securioty. It then found the wired desktop on the laptop. But it still doesn't see any of the printers that are connected to the wired desktop.Tried to find the printers by typing in \\192.168.100 under the run command. It said it couldn't recognize the wired DNS address 192.168.100. That is the ipconfig address from cmd and then ipconfig from the wired Dell laptop.

What do we need to do to have the laptop see the printers?

"DO NOT resize the Vista partition during the installation of the Linux distribution! Due to the change in NTFS versions, no Linux partitioning program, nor standard Windows partitioning programs, can properly alter the partition that Vista is installed to."

The Dell DVD probably overwrote your VAIO recovery partition. You can try to invoke it - usually with F10 key during boot-up. If not you will need replacement recovery DVDs from Sony. HP charges about USD $25.

I've seen this problem on this forum but can't find anything that I haven't tried yet. Here’s my problem; I've spent the last 3 weeks talking with Dell to resolve the issue. They have taken remote access, replaced my mother board and Ethernet cable + I have made numerous changes with Dell guidance and nothing has worked. I have also talked to my service provider who replaced my router and still nothing.

I am now at the point where i still have the DNS look up issue and neither Dell or my service provider are accepting responsibility for the fault..........
My only work around is to unplug my Ethernet cable and plug back in. This seems to interrupt a signal and get me on line.
I would really appreciate your help.

hi all,

it's been a long time since I have had to post something about my problems in these forums. Well over a year as I have had my laptop for over a year now. This may seem like a similar thread to most that have been put up recently but I think it is quite different.

Ever since I have upgraded to IE8 I have noticed Vista be very slow. It could be to do with IE8 but I think that the slowness of my machine has been since before then...according to my wife. Has her facebook shennanegans broken the laptop???!

Here is a list of problems I am getting:
Long start up times. They aren't bothering me that much, just seem to be a bit longer than normal.
Very long time from when Vista has loaded and I can actually do somehting (15 minutes just now to access an mp3 on my desktop and it kept skipping for about 5 minutes before it stops skipping and playing the track normally)
Extremely slow at logging onto the internet. I mean that it takes minutes, literally minutes for IE8 to even display the very first internet page. After that it is slow, but not as bad...still frustrating though.
Changing between programs seems to take a few seconds.
Accessing my computer or my documents is like a game of russian roulette, will it let me or won't it.....£900 on it won't!!!!
On mp3 tracks, if you go back to a certain point in the track it will take a few seconds to actually complete the task

hi my first instinct is to get your self an external hdd and transfer your files folders etc to it then visit the folks in security and hijack if nothing else lets rule out any possibity of infection. when you upgraded to ie8 was it still in beta, what av and firewall are you using. have you run your av, can windows update same for windows defender, i know its a lot of questions but the answers could be helpfull

Hiya,

I had my cpu crash: of which two other threads give a background:
http://www.techsupportforum.com/micr...sing-data.html
http://www.techsupportforum.com/micr...pre-vista.html

I ended up just re-loading vista, losing all of my c: data. I re-loaded all my other programs, my backup data, and it seemed fine. My installation of MS Office went poorly, as I forgot to first remove the "trial" edition, and overlapped installed the Licensed edition..I was unable to remove the trial edition after this, and tried a few manual removes to free up some space.

I mention this only because its the only thing I can think of which is slowing down my cpu, to a Crawl. Load / starting up takes ~10 minutes before I can actively search or use a program, sometimes (even now doing the scan's / logs) everything slows to a crawl.

My c: has ~40 gig free out of 110 gig, it is defragged every month.
MOST of my problems also seem to have started when I switched over from Kaspersky (paid), to Comodo (latest). I uninstalled Kaspersky first of course, but maybe Comodo is just a huge resource hog?

Also running spybot (safesurf only, spybot S & D is only used for a scan every now and then, not actively in the background), SAS (scan only, non-real time), CCleaner.

Windows security alerts are always on, saying I don't have user-control activated..though it detects my spyware / Comodo firewall (it didn't for a few weeks).

All my scans, including comodo, spybot, SAS only... Read more

What's going on with this thing? Lately Windows Mail is sloooooooooow to boot. I also have intermittent unexplained freeze ups where the cpu is working like crazy on something but I don't know what. Any suggestions what to check? I've run Spybot search and destroy, Malicious software removal tool, Defender, Plus the excellent anti virus software from Embarq. I should mention I downloaded Explorer 8 recently. Also installed SP2 awhile ago. This is a 2 year old Emachine system T5226 dual core and all that jazz

System is Vista Home Prem SP2 on Dell 1.8ghz, 4gb RAM, 32 bit.
Most applications run slow, boots up very slow, most all web sites, regarless of browser, are slow.
I run Malwarebytes scans every other day - nothing reported.  Recently did a a defrag.  The ESET on line scan found some PDF related problems and fixed them.   All of this has given very little improvement.
Please advise what to try next.  Thanks.

A:Vista system slow; all browsers slow

That's a pretty slow processor you've got there.  Maybe it's time for an upgrade to a new computer?  You can get decent desktops for as little as $350 these days.  Of course you could try something like Linux Mint or Ubuntu.  Both these work well on computers like yours, they're a lot faster than Windows, and you can boot from a DVD and be up and running in about 3 minutes.  They have Windows-like user interfaces and Firefox.  You can boot and run from the DVD (or flash drive) without having to install anything.
 
Good luck.

issues:
1. wen i start my pc, after loading status bar loading and before the show of Windows Vista Logo and that chirping sound, my monitor turns off for approx 5-7 secs, ie the green light of monitor becomes orange and after 5 secs again green and windows starts up normally.
i cant understand why this happens. My video drivers are properly loaded, i even tried updating them, but no help.
i googled one day and found out that some microsoft service searches for extra monitors and causes this, it also named it and i disabled it from services.msc. however after a syatem restore this problem has cropped up again. I tried hard but could not find it again on google [whush! the page was perhaps deleted from google indexing!]

So can u tell how can i resolve this problem.

2. Apart from above prob, i see my windows loading at startup is considerably slow, it takes near about 7 secs showing "Welcome" after i select my user name. Also wen desktop appears for 5 secs the mouse shows BUSY cursor.

My connection for Remote Desktop is extremely slow. It will be quick for about 30- 60 seconds, then all of the sudden it grinds to a halt and will not move for another 5 to 10 seconds. Sometimes the connection is lost.

Both computers are communicating via my local router (LAN connection). This should be lightning quick with my modern computers and both having Vista right?

I have disabled my auto-tunning on both computers just like so many forums have told me to do. This does not help at all!
I am connecting to a Vista Ultimate 32-bit Computer (1.5 Ghz) from a Vista Home Premium 64-bit Computer (2.23 Ghz with 4 GB of Ram) via Remote Desktop Connection (RDC).

Anyone out there that knows what I should do? I have also tried disabling all of the graphics sounds and themes in the RDC options.

When I called Dell they told me to do a control alt del and I had 54 processes running, which surprised each tech I talked to but, is this a surprise to anyone, none of them could do anything about it. I am using AOL and I suspect that uses a lot of space, but I am not a very compentent computer person. I saw a commercial yesterday where a PC uses has a discussion with an Apple person and the PC person says something about erasing all the unnecessary Microsoft software. A friend did advice that I use Itunes instead of the Dell musicmatch which seems like an awful program. Itunes seems to work better, but is there something I can do to make my system more sensible.
I have never posted here before and would like to thank, in advance, anyone who replies.

A:My new Dell with microsoft XP was slow out of the box

Hi Jim and welcome to TSF....

54 processes is a little high but to be honest, i've seen worse :-)

Usually with new machines with pre-installed software, there is a lot of stuff running that isn't really needed but in order to be able to advise which things you can disable, I would be grateful if you could include some screenshots of your task manager in your next post so I know exactly what things are running.

Also, if you do the following for me please:

- Click Start -> Run -> type:
services.msc
- Click OK
- This will launch your services console and show which services are set to start with Windows. If you could take some screenshots of here as well, that would be cool as a lot of services are not needed to be running when Windows starts and will usually slow the machine down a bit.

Finally, I would be grateful if you could advise on some system specs such as CPU and RAM please?

Thanks :-)

I have a Dell Inspiron 5100 Laptop with a Broadcom truemobile 1400 Wireless Lan Card. My DSL isp (verizon) provides me with 2.7 MBps on my Dell Dimension PC, yet on my Laptop I cannot get above 78 Kbytes.

I have a friend with the same Dell laptop model as mine with a Broadcom truemobile 1350 card and he too got 2.7 MBps on his laptop going wireless through my router.

I cannot understand why my speeds are so slow. I have a very clean machine running Windows XP Home. I have NO spyware and a "Squeeky Clean" registry. All drivers, including LAN card are completely up to date, all windows up to date, etc.

I tried to connect through my router via cable to see if the problem was with my wireless LAN card and still got the 78 Kbyte speed. I have tried everything to increase speed to no avail. I live in a rural area (Camden, Maine USA) and pay an "arm and a leg" for the 3 MBps DSL service and this is driving me nuts.

If anyone has any ideas or has experienced the same problem and has a fix I would really appreciate learning how you overcame it.

Thanks!
Rick

A friend of mine has a Dell (Shes not willing to get the service tag right now but I'll get it within 24 hours of my first post) I've tryed pretty much about everything with computer to get it to work properly, but the only thing that seems to want to work is a reformat. After booting it up the second time after reformatting, however, the system was back to its really slow self, windows would freeze (Not refresh on the screen, not lock up) Browsing the internet is horribly slow (I'll leave that for another thread if needed, its wireless internet, which I hate to deal with) The mouse freezes up when instant messages come through, when you browse through the hard drive contents, and pretty much anything involving moving or changing something that takes up more than .01% of the screen.

I got her to run a Hijack This! log and see if it came up with anything but nothing looks suspicious at all, perhaps you guys can see something in it.

Note: I've updated and reinstalled the drivers countless times, making sure to wipe them before I reinstall them. If this thread is on the wrong board please move it, I didn't know where else to post it.

My Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop (1.8 Ghz centrino, 1GB RAM) has been giving trouble for some time now. It's running very slowly with CPU most of the time at 100% with no specific process in task manager hogging it. Boot up (and hard disk seek time) is very slow.

My HijackThis log is below if you guys can spot something.

Cheers,

Nish

Hi,

My mother's Dell laptop (running Windows XP) has somehow become so incredibly, incredibly slow. It is so slow that it takes about 15 minutes from clicking a mouse button to something happening on the laptop.

I tried to do a system restore, going back to a restore point as far back as possible (the restore point was in July 2009). This of course took a very long time to do because the computer is so slow. Unfortunately, the restore failed to work, so now I don't know what to do.

I have thought about reinstalling Windows but for some reason the CDs that came with the computer only seem to have ISP and anti virus software on them and not Windows XP. Strange.

OK, any ideas? Might it be a virus? If it is, how to fix it, bearing in mind that everything takes a long, long, looooooooong time to happen?

Many many thanks.

A:Very, very, very slow Dell laptop

Unfortunately this happens to many people over time and can be a big hassle to fix. Im assuming that the laptop has internet access so what you need to do is first go to hxxp://greateasygames.webs.com" and once there click on Anti Virus... and once that page loads click on the Free Download button right below Spybot. Once the program is downloaded install it. Open the program and update it. No need to backup the registry cuz it will just make it worst. Once the program is updated click scan for problems i think its called and let it do that. It may take a long time though but once done your laptop will hopefully be working good again, and please post back with the results.

This is a Dell Inspiron running XP Home w/SP2, 512 M RAM. It generally runs slow, but most troublesome is the slow boot time. It especially hangs for several minutes at the XP splash screen, then several more on the welcome screen. also takes a long time to open programs (FireFox, Control Panel, etc.) I have ran all the usual (and not so usual) malware routines (SpyBot, AdAware, Ccleaner, Combofix, AVG AntiSpyware, etc.). Nothing of interest there. I have ran chkdsk and defrag, turned off all startup items in msconfig, and turned off all non-microsoft services, to no avail. I have searched through this and other forums, also with no luck. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
Thanks.

Slow Dell Laptop
Greetings,
I have a Dell Inspiron Laptop that belonged to one of my nephews. He obviously was not security minded. The computer is extremely slow and every program that I open will default into "Not Responding" in short time. I cannot access the internet except in safe mode, which I am in now. I would like to provide more details about the system but Belarc Advisor will not run in safe mode.
I have run all malware removal tools in safe mode (Spy-Bot, Malwarebytes, AVG Anti Virus and Super Anti-Spyware) and have followed directions from each. One item that came up was called PUP.OPTIONAL. Hitman Pro eliminated a lot of tracking cookies as well. I was asked to resubmit this thread from another forum.

I have followed the directions as well as possible and am posting the required info from the scans. Thank you in advance for any advice:

A friend asked me to look at his PC as it was taking an age to boot up. I have removed a number of unwanted programmes, stopped a few things starting at boot up but it still seems a little slow, plus I am at the limit of where I am happy to fiddle so to speak

The PC it a Dell Dimension DIM 2400
P4 2.80Ghz 1.5Gb RAM

Could someone have a look at the attched HJT Log and Start Up to see if there is anything which needs tinkering with please? An online scan at Trend suggests there is no current threats.

Thanks in anticipation

You have two antivirus products installed and running in real time which will seriously impair the performance of your system, create dire instability and actually reduces your system's security level. You should decide which to keep and uninstall the other.

Next, please run HijackThis again and check the box next to these:

...close all windows now except for the hijackthis application's window (that includes this browser window). Now click the Fix Checked button. Reboot the computer and post back a fresh HijackThis log. Advise how the system is behaving for you now and if you are having any other issues. Thanks!

A:Dell laptop is Running slow

Hi lfine, can you try this:-

Window Key+R and type msconfig and hit OK.
Under 'Services tab', tick 'Hide all Microsoft Services' and then uncheck the remaining programs and 'Apply'
Then under 'Startup tab' - Uncheck anything not Microsoft related then 'Apply' and OK

Then reboot and see if that helps. Trying to see if a program or something else may be interfering.

Also, can you check you Device Manager for any warnings (yellow exclamation points) next to anything.
Right click on 'My Computer' and select 'Manage'. In the Computer Management window, select 'Device Manager' on the left and look for any warning signs.

I just purchased a new Dell Inspiron 15 3558 two days ago. The first day, boot was slow and I thought it was due to the computer setting everything up for first use. Now its been two days and I still have the same problem. I noticed that the dell logo appears twice, once with the loading circle spinning and the other time with the loading circle frozen. It also takes about 130 seconds for me to get to the login screen. When i log in, everything takes some time to load and the windows start menu and search don't work until after 30 seconds. I have to wait an additional minute for everything to load properly. Also, whenever i play games that I can support, they are slow on low graphics and after I exit a game, my laptop becomes unusable. I usually have to restart my laptop for it to work without freezing or any lag. I just bought this laptop brand new and the specs are decent. Why do I have so many problems?

My Specs are:
Fifth Gen i3-5015u CPU (2.1GHz), 1TB HDD, 4GB RAM, Intel HD 5500 Graphics

I have a Dell XPS 8700 running WIN 7 professional with Service Pack 1.

About two weeks ago I started having problems with more than one window open or running more than one program at a time. It was sporadic. This morning it is all the time.

Very slow accessing Internet Explorer or Chrome. Hangs trying to move from site to site. Can't access e-mail while accessing internet.

I run Panda antivirus and have it scanning every day. I use Malware Bytes once a week. Today I used online Trend Micro and nothing showed up. However I wonder if I picked up a virus or malware.

Any ideas? I really need my computer today!

Thanks for any help!

Mymachine runs fine most of the time.

However, at times it runs extremely slowly so that the mouse judders ans and sounds are broken.

Task manger shows 40-50% CPU usage but nothing in the proceses is using that (I have all user thing ticked).

I wonder if this is an over-heating problem as I once saw a fleeting boot-up message about a "previous fan error". I can hear a fan though! The room is cool.

So, would over-heating cause this? If so how can I tell if it is in fact this?

Cheers!
 

A:Dell Dimensio 8400 slow. Fan?

Over heating could cause your computer to slow down. I don't know that it would cause it to use compute cycles. Everest can tell your motherboard temps.

Hello all,

I just finished wiping a friends laptop with a fresh copy of Windows XP Pro SP3. A couple days later I went to use it after it installed Microsoft Office 2007 Pro Plus. IT was extremely slow afterwards. Extremely slow means it took 15 minutes just to pull up the Start Menu. I removed all traces of Office and it was still slow so I did a clean install on Windows Vista (Which it shipped with) however the install itself is taking ages as well... Can anyone tell me what has happened??? I am at a loss and I just want this thing to start working again. I have also tried resetting the BIOS back to default settings and still nothing!
 

A:Dell Inspiron 1525 very slow

Could be a simple hardware problem..make sure everything in bios is reading correctly (amount of ram, CPU clock speed, etc).
a fam member had a 1525, and it died spectaculary. Maybe they just arent good laptops.
If its not the above, IDK. new OS would be first suggestion, but apparently you did that already.

Hello,
I have an issue with an insanely slow Dell desktop running XP. I had installed Revo Uninstaller, and ran the 'Evidence Remover'. After 24 hours, it seemed to have froze, so I rebooted. Since then, the slowness has been extraordinary to the extent where it is unusable. I have tried

- booting in safe mode (still slow)
- clearing the registry
- reverting to the system restore point

There is 768Mb of RAM. In the task manager, there is one system process that is showing 143K of memory being utilized, though this higher number is not present in safe mode.

How should I proceed from here?

Thanks so much.

Hello Tech Support Guy,

I have a Dell laptop with Windows XP which I use for web surfing, email (MS Outlook), other MS applications and picture/file transferring. When I start up the system, it runs fine, but then after having it on for a few hours with a few apps open, it slows down...a lot. I've already moved many of my picture files to my external hard drive and removed some unnecessary apps. Can someone take a look at my HJT log and see if there's anything that could be slowing my system down?

HELP!! My laptop is moving DESPERATELY Slow. I can't navigate on it because everything takes forever! I have a Dell Inspiron 2200 Laptop, with Windows XP. I usually connect to the internet through a wireless connection to my office desktop PC. I also usually leave my laptop open and running. About a week ago I went to use it had some kind of an error and had done an auto reboot and when it came back up, it had reset to the defaul settings, which means I lost everything I had saved on it for the past 3 years (a lot of it I had saved on a jump drive, however). Anyway, ever since then, it has been CRAWLING. It takes 10 seconds to open the simplest file folder from my desktop. I have AVG running, as well as Ewido Anti-Malware. I ran the AdAware and CleanUp 4.0 programs, as well as a Registry Repair. Looks like it cleaned up a lot of junk, but they don't seem to have the computer speed much. I have Vundo loaded and ran it, but it suggests that I enter a filepath name that I can get from a Tech Support site after I run HiJack This. So I ran HiJack This and here is my log:

Hi all,

My computer has been slowing down lately. I downloaded SpyBot which seemed to find a lot of stuff that PCTools did not seem to and so I deleted a lot of stuff. The computer seemed to be running better. However, lately the computer has slowed down again and now takes approximately 10 minutes from "turn on" before it can be effectively used. I am unsure if this is an infection that is getting worse or not.

Please help.

Having bought a Dell Dimension 9100 (very nice spec) fairly recently, I was mostly pleased with it.

A few weeks ago, however, my computer's startup started to slow down. It was as quick as ever until you got past the password entry screen, and the desktop actually loaded.

I've used msconfig to remove all the crap that was auto-loading, but there is still this odd moment whilst it is loading, when you cannot use the start menu or the taskbar (although you can click on desktop icons). After half a minute, the problem disappears, and the rest of the taskbar loads.

Could you help?

A:Slow Boot (XP, Dell Dim 9100)

i have the same problem with mine. I turn my computer on ( i dont have a user screen only 1 administrator loads straight to the desktop) and my desktop loads with all the icons. However i can't use the startmenu and my computer seems to lock up only mines like 1-2 minutes. In addition the icons on the bottome right hand side do not appear anymore. Only the clock. Then when i manualy open instantmessanger my norton icon appears but my volume and email protection icons do not. It is very puzzling and confusing. Help would be appreciated and if your confused on whats exactly happening let me no.

Hi. I have a Dell Inspiron 1200 Laptop running on XP.  I recently had it reformatted by my regular computer tech.  Within a week it was running very slow, and within two weeks it was totally unusable except in Safe Mode.  It is now running as what I would describe GLACIALLY slow.
 
I have done many of the usual things -- run Malwarebytes, run antivirus, defragged, etc., -- but noting

This forum has always given me the greatest help.
 
Thanks in advance for your insights.

It seems I am not the only tech fighting the Dell win2k slow network delima. I run 120 Dell optiplex GX 150\260\400 fast ethernet machines through a stack of 8 Nortel 450 switches.
I have 8 assorted Dell servers. All workstations run win2k as do most of our servers. We still run 3 NT4 domain controllers as our network system. My slowdown is very bad taking 2 minutes to open a 1.5 Mb Excel file. The slowdown only occurs between Dell machines running win2k. If I install NT4 I do not have a slowdown.
If I install win2k on a Compaq EVO300s I have no slowdown.
I have had my network tested with a 30,000 dollar fluke and no hardware issues were found. My arcserve V9 backs up at 1000+ MB per minute locally and under 50 MB per minute over the wire.
All win2k installs have SP3 and all bios upgrades have been done as well as upgraded drivers for NICS and SCSI adapters.
New and different NICS have been tried. Nothing to date has affected the slow response except removing the Novell client (latest with all patches). THis speeds up the access some but is not an option for most of my users. I have tried all of the tweeks from Microsoft which made things worse. All they did was slow down my Novell access, badly.
Has anyone fought and won this battle???
after 4 months of fighting it I have run out of things to try.
Thanks, Jim

Normal install (32-bit)
Standard GX520, no addon cards.
I haven't installed any new drivers/apps. I literally just clean installed the RC (build 7100) over a copy of XP Pro (the usual windows dual boot menu at start) and XP is still fine but when I log into win 7 it's slow as can be. incredibly slow is how I would describe it. Anyway the weird thing is the CPU usage and memory usage are low so I can't figure it out. maybe it's disk usage but I can't even run any portable diagnostic software because it's so damn slow. Is there anything I can check. it must be something simple. And I'm sure somebody else has tried it on a GX520 business machine. Any help is much appreciated.

With all the different anti-virus it wouldn't surprise me if remnants were left behind slowing things down. Regardless, if it were my laptop, I'd back up my docs, photos, music etc and reinstall Windows. Pick one AV and stick with it. I recommend Avira or MSE

Recently my XPS has slowed down considerably, posting very slow benchmarks on 3Dmark2001 and Aquamark3. Also, the cooling fans run all the time, even when just sitting idle at the desktop.
The real problem is that I can't play CS:S anymore, causing me great duress. I used to get 40fps or better, has dropped to 9fps, even off-line playing.
The HJT log file looks okay to me, but maybe someone better qualified could look and see if there is something running that shouldn't be. Much thanks in advance.

When you purchased the laptop, did you erase all the bloatware that usually comes along with it? You can look into optimizing the laptop by getting rid of services and processes you don't need and you can think about purchasing a SSD for a real speed increase in read/write. This forum has great guides that can help you optimize your laptop, you can take a look at them here : Tutorials - Windows 7 Help Forums

For a while now my laptop starts very slowly and seems like it is hanging. I don't think I have any spyware or viruses from the scans I have run. Eventually it gets going and is ok but sometimes that can take a very long time.

When I run hijack this it seems to hang on O15, occasionally crashes but usually eventually gets through to end.

Please could you have a look and see if there is anything I have missed:

I just bought a Dell computer, and it's lagging really bad. My 5 year old PC runs better than it.

I've gone through and made sure the video drivers are up to date, as well as disabled most of the crap that wants to start up with Windows.

But for some reason the lag won't go away. The hard drive light is constantly flickering like it's installing something too.

Also, my video card has 256mb... Why does the report say it has 600something mb?!

I'm confused and disgruntled. Help me someone!!

Thanks!!

Hi -

My Dell Inspiron laptop e1505 is running very slow. For example, it will typically take 3 minutes to start internet explorer, even with a blank home page. I wait a minute or more for a windows explorer or my computer window to display.

In addition the computer will periodically produce constant repetitive messages indicating a program ended abnormally and requesting to send an error report. When this happens, the only way to stop the messages is to shut down.

Per your instructions I'm posting/attaching dds and gmer logs.

Thank you in advance for your help.
