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

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

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?

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 recently re-formatted my Sony VAIO since it was starting to run super slow. Now that I re-installed Windows 7 on it through recovery disks, it worked fined for about a day but then the problem came back. The computer is slow at bootup and runs super slow while freezing so many times. I am running it on safe mode right now and its working fine.

I ran hardware diagnostics and everything is fine (Memory, Hard Disk etc.)

I installed Norton Antivirus and Windows Live Messenger after the re-install.

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)

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

My XP used to be pretty quick, i got 2gb of ram, 2.4 amd 64 bit cpu and 5 hard drives
i dont have any spyware or adware, since i check it every week with 3 diff programs

It boots very slowly and runs even slower since about 5 months ago. i dont see anything eating the memory or hogging the cpu. it shows the cpu isnt working hard at all on my cpu/mem meter. i tried to increase the page file to double the amount but nothing changed.

For some reason mem turbo is showing that i have no page file at all and 2gb of ram?!? why is that. is there some problem somewhere i am not seeing

Hello,

My computer runs painfully slow. It takes awhile to open programs or even folders. It takes 10 seconds or so to even show the folders/programs listed in the start menu. Upon clicking on Internet Explorer, it takes time to open that as well. Web site pages go very slow. Minimizing windows are slow or it will freeze or leave the screen image on the computer for a while. If I drag a window, it will leave a residual trail of the window.

Open and closing programs and browsing the web are the most fustrating because they are very slow.

I have installed and run a complete scan using MBAM, Adaware and AVG Free AntiVirus. I also defraggred the drive numerous times and also uninstalled all programs that I don't use. I deleted old video and audio files on the hard drive. I ran a chkdsk to search for errors. I cleaned the drive using the cleanmgr functin in Windows.

What should I check next?
Dell Dimension DIM 4550
Pentium 4 2.00 Ghz
1.50 GB of Ram
Windows XP Home Edition SP3
60GB of 120 GB hard drive has been used

A:Windows XP Computer Runs Slow

Tell us the steps you took to run chkdsk.

Running chkdsk in read-only mode...accomplishes nothing. Did you use the chkdsk /r command?

Did you have adequate protection installed...before your system began to slow down?

Is the system current with critical updates?

When did you first notice problems with your system?

I have Windows 7 Ultimate on my desktop. I have encountered that the windows runs abnormal.
Each time I select a program to run or just at a random time, the computer is frozen, no responses, and the hard drive led is lid constant. This can take up to 1 minute. Another example, when I am typing and is pausing a few times.
I know for sure that a program is running in the background to cause this problem. I did look at the process, but I do not understand.

Recently replaced the cooling fan on my laptop. Seems maybe a little better, but not sure it isn't still overheating - Speedfan utility says CPU temp is between 60-70 degrees Celsius, other temps are 50C or below.
 
Main problem is, everything runs slowly. Programs take a while to begin, webpages slow to load (Chrome often asks to kill unresponsive pages).
Now and then while something is loading, I will see the screen "wipe" - like an old-timey movie - the icons slowly erase from top to bottom, and then once all are gone the screen resets and they all reappear.
 
This is a Compaq Presario M2000 running windows xp. Got it from a secondhand computer store maybe 3 years ago, came with microsoft security essentials installed.
I thought I had brought this issue up once on this board, but I'm not seeing any thread in my history, so must have not ever done that. If anything, I ran MalwareBytes on it back then.
 
Only other issue is that the power jack is loose, have to have the cord just so in order to charge. Not sure that would cause a slowdown - the screen brightens when charging, so I would think that the processor is running at its proper speed as well.

First replace Mcafee with Avira Antivirus. Because even though Mcafee is famous it still isn't the best and also sows down your computer. Avira has one of the best detection rates even better than Mcafee. It also offers rock solid protection that even blocks dangerous scripts. It blocks malware that even the best antivirus software misses. It's rated the best as well as a 5 star solution at download.com. Go do some research online you'll see. It also barely ever slows down your computer and has fast scanning. Uninstall it with Revo Uninstaller which will completely uninstall any software. It will even accomplish broken uninstalls. So it'salot more powerful than ordinary xp add or remove program. It cleans up left behind traces in the registry as well in the disk by the application.Also replace adaware and spybot with either malwarebytes or asquared free. Both are one of the antispyware programs available and wayyy better than spybot and adaware. Now get a startup manager to remove any irrelevant startup entries to speed up startup. A good one that's as small as 59KB.Here is the link:http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml You can either download download the standalone version which is 34KB or the control panel applet version which installs a startup icon in the control panel, ehich is 59KB. http://kadaitcha.cx/performance.htmlhttp://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?art...1590&page=1http://forums.techarena.in/guides-tutorials/480183.htmFOLLOW THESE LINKS A...

During the download I noticed that the PC was running pretty hard and I checked in the Task Manager for processor and RAM usage, noticing that the processor was used at around 50% of capacity but RAM memory was used at 1.9 GB, that's around 98%.

I restarted the laptop and run the download again. Memory usage was about 1.4 GB. Then, I tried to open Firefox and go check something on a website and everything crashed. I unplugged the laptop (n00b way of solving things) to shut it down and then started it back. At this point I noticed that it took like half an hour to boot and show desktop.

I have 3 Windows 7 PCs appropriately licensed.  Since October of 2015, the windows update experience has been disgusting.  Windows Update is running slower and slower, and now it is not unusual to have Update identify eligible updates after hours
of running - and then download nothing for hours, if ever!  I know many others with the same Windows 7 Update problem.  Same issue with those few Windows Vista PCs still out there (and supposedly still supported by Microsoft).  Highly suspicious
that this is a Microsoft driven issue to compel users to upgrade to Windows 10.  I will migrate to OS X and leave Windows in the dust without a near term fix.

** THIS PROBLEM HAS BEEN SOLVED, SEE SOLUTION AT THE BOTTOM...THANKS AGAIN! **

Hello all,

First time poster here, having some problems with my Windows 7 install. Ever since this evening, about 15 minutes into my Windows 7 session, I notice that it starts running slower (mostly in any web browsers I'm running). Then, one by one, it seems as if systems just stop. First, I can't load any web pages. Then, my wallpaper rotator stops. Then, I can't close windows or it takes minutes to close a window. Then, I can't open any programs. Finally, it gets to the point where I can't shut it down. It's like watching a train wreck in slow motion. I have tried doing so from the Start Menu (which shows up, but may freeze itself) and from the command line, and it's as if the OS doesn't care. I have to do a hard reboot, after which twice it's run a CHKDSK and found orphaned files and other errors. (I've had to do this at least 8 times tonight.)

Here is my system information:
HP Pavillion dv7-1127cl laptop (17")

Processor: AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core Mobile RM-72 2.10 GHz
Ram: 4 GB
It originally had Vista on it (it was purchased in December 2008), but I installed 7 on the 220 GB partition a week ago. Vista worked fine until about July 2009, when it started going slow and becoming unstable. That's when I split off the 60 GB partition for a Win ... Read more

A:Windows 7 Runs Slow, Freezes, Can't Reboot

I would make a virus scan my top priority

I would also try disabling all third party apps and services to see if add on software is giving you the problem. In MSconfig uncheck all items under startup and in services tab tick hide all MS services then uncheck the rest.
This should give you some idea whether problem lies within windows or 3rd party software

The SFC scan will also help give you an idea of whats going on

Hi

I switched from Xp to Windows 7 Pro. Since then I noticed when I run my website(asp.net mvc) in local host it goes so so slow(I mean like 10 to 20seconds per page).

This should not be. I then tested it with sloppy to mimic a user of 256kb and it loads up alot faster(maybe 2-3seconds at most).

I then changed my localHost to 127.0.0.1 and it goes super faster. It just when I use localHost it goes this slow.

Anyone got any ideas why this is happening?

Dell Latitude D800 Laptop, 2Gb RAM
Windows XP SP3 installed last week
Zone Alarm Security Suite 7.0.483

Since installing Windows XP SP3 last week, system hangs if laptop closed, or if start/turn off computer/standby invoked. Only way to recover is to to do full reboot.

Also system much hslower than using SP2 - having recently before SP3 installation upgraded to 2GB RAM and enjoyed the speed increase, disappointing to have lost this.

Any thoughts?

Many thanks

A:windows xp sp3 hangs after standby and runs slow

I did have the same (?) problem on a Dell Inspiron 8200 after installing SP3: system hangs after resume from standby. It could be solved by disabling the wireless zero configuration service, see

http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/...7573&SiteID=17

Apparently SP3 activated that service by default although my laptop does not feature a wireless network card - seems to be bug, a quite bugging one .

If your machine has wireless then perhaps this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/951447 might help.

Hello,

I'm back again with another problem I couldnt fix outright. It is a windows 7 machine, a HP Pavilion dv7. At one time, it was one of the fastest smoothest running new computers (not including personally built machines!) I had ever used. It ran perfectly fine, until one day where it just stopped working properly. Everything became slower than it should be- There is typing delay (sometimes), the volume ticker thing delays (sometimes), IE sometimes becomes unusable it's so slow, youtube videos stutter to the point of a slideshow (again sometimes), and things like word and CPU-z take abnormally long to open. The machine seems "preoccupied"

There are no viruses or malware, it is fully updated, ccleaner'ed, defragged, and overall checked over- no obvious problems. I ran P95 for like an hour to just test general stability and it ran fine in that. There are no apparant bad or too many programs running.

I'm at a loss with this problem- any advice? You guys have never failed me before!

Thanks,
Will

Hi. I am having issues with my Toshiba Satellite laptop. I recently tried upgrading my Java and shortly after the computer started slowing down to a crawl. I rebooted only to have the computer be unable to boot up. It got stuck at the Windows loading screen. I booted it up in Safe Mode and did a restore to a previous time. It reinstalled the previous Java I had and got rid of the newest version. It allowed me to access my desktop like normal but Windows still continues to slow down and not boot properly. So essentially I am looking for help to diagnose and fix this problem. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Windows 98

Helping a lady with her computer. It just seems to be running very slow. When you connect to the Internet, then click Explorer it slowly loads as you watch it in the progress bar on the status bar Even when it looks like it is finally there it still won't come up for a long time, however, even tho the home page is not up, if you type an address in the address bar it will take you there, slow but will get you there. If you go back to the desk top and click explorer, It will again look like it is loading but not come up or have to wait for a long, long time. (as in like 4 or 5 min.)

Also if you are loading something like windows updates or a download and close it to the bottom of the page so you can go to another site while that is downloading ,it seems as though it will either freeze up or take an extreme amount of time to get there, you wait and wait and you finally think well its not going to work so you click on something else. Then all of a sudden the page you wanted will come up. Does not matter if it is a web page you are waiting for or to get somewhere like start>settings>control panel still takes a long time.

Your log appears clean. Not sure what is causing your slow system, but it could be any number of things. Is the RAM maxed out? how about the CPU usage? Not sure what to tell you about the pointer.

To enable the Dial-up Networking Connection icon in the system tray, follow these steps:
1. Open the Dial-up Networking folder. In Windows 98, you can access this folder from My Computer on the desktop. In Windows Millennium Edition (Me), you can access the Dial-up Networking folder from Control Panel.
2. On the Connections menu, click Settings.
3. Click to select the Show an icon on the taskbar after connected check box.
4. Click OK to close the Dial-up Networking Settings window.
To disable the Dial-up Networking Connection icon in the system tray, use the steps in this section, but click to clear the Show an icon on the taskbar after connected check box that is mentioned in step 3.

My PC is running extremely slow. Web browsers (mozilla firefox and internet explorer) freeze and sometimes close on their own. Windows won't hibernate when I shut the lid of my laptop, nor will Windows hibernate or shut down when I try to do so manually from the start menu. The "preparing to hibernate" or "windows is shutting down" screen appears but then nothing happens. I had the security tools virus and removed it with malwarebytes anti-malware, but I don't know if I didn't delete it all. Sony support told me I have registry conflicts. Here is my DDS log.

Hello.

I am working on a clients computer, an HP Dv5000. According to him, the hard drive has been replaced and a new windows xp install has been done. I recently eliminated a virus on it (about 2 months ago), and it was running fine up until now.

The system seems to work correctly, except it runs extremely slowly (5 minute or longer boot time both safe and normal), downloads from the internet either take decades or dont work at all, and programs like Norton are having trouble initializing. I checked it for Viruses, none, I did a disk check with a few errors found, and a defrag. It seems to run fine on my pc through a usb ata adapter, although it may be a tad slow. When installed in the clients pc, it boots and all, but runs so slowly, and when there is HDD activity shown by the light, you can hear the drive but very intermittenly and not in line with what the light shows.

I ran seatools on it on my pc through the USB adapter, and it passed all tests. On the clients pc, I did the same, and it passed all tests, like the SMART test and the short generic test, but the Long generic test ran over night and never finished, with a pop up saying it is taking a long time. So that test essentially failed. I ran Prime95 on it for like 2 hours and it seemed to handle that fine.

I am at a complete loss- there seems to be no problem other than a possible bad drive, what do you guys think? Would a system report help out at all?

Thanks,
Will

Hi, I have a Dell Precision 470, which is a fast, and quite unstable computer. I use Windows XP SP3

Over the 15 months i've been using this computer, i came to notice it blue screens... maybe once every other month or so. but recently, it bluescreened, and instead of nothing bad happening, I noticed I can't delete files.

So basically

-when running explorer, it takes forever to load. Sometimes it'll just start not responding and I'll have to close explorer.exe via task manager
-All other programs run fine. Firefox, iTunes, Opera, Word all run fine. However, once you start looking for files (to upload to youtube etc), it slows down dramatically
-Spy Sweeper shows no sign of virus/spyware
-Windows XP takes forever to load, both loading the welcome screen after the splash screen, and loading the desktop after logging into my side. It no longer just shows the display picture though
-I probably have the XP CD somewhere, but it will be extremely difficult to find and I hear you lose all your data, so i would be better off getting a new computer

Thanks - Shadow
 

A:Solved: Windows explorer runs extremely slow or freezes

You have an infected computer my friend. http://free.avg.com/us-en/homepage

Install that(hopefully you're able to) and if successful, update definitions if it doesn't do it automatically and do a scan on it.

More than likely it sounds like your reg files are screwed, so may I suggest a backup of files and drivers; reformat.

OR

If you have a retail copy of the current version of windows you are using, go ahead and boot off the disc and get to the recovery console.

Once in command prompt, do a fixboot, then chkdsk /r function.

PS

Definitely get AVG, it's the best freeware anti virus software out there known to man of this current moment.

AND

Definitely do a scan with it!

Hope this helps!

My McAfee just expired and I removed it from my computer to install AntiVir but when I did, Windows Security says Norton 360 is running even though I can't find any Norton files.

I'd really appreciate your help and I'm just hoping to clean my machine up and make sure that it's properly protected.

Hi -

I don't see anything in the logs to suggest infection.

Run the Norton Removal Tool

1. Download this file:

ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/englis...moval_Tool.exe

Save the file to the Windows desktop.

2. On the Windows desktop, double-click the Norton Removal Tool icon.

3. Follow the on-screen instructions. Your computer may be restarted more than once, and you may be asked to repeat some steps after the computer restarts.

Also run the McAfee Removal Tool.

Download the McAfee Removal Tool.

Double click on MCPR.exe to launch it, then Click Run. A window should appear and disappear, this is normal. A new window should popup and begin the uninstall. When prompted to reboot your computer type Y.

You should now be able to install Avira. (nice choice) Run a full system scan, save the log and post it. (Click on the Report button when the full scan is complete.)

I'm sorry if I post this in a wrong section.
My problem is that my computer runs extremely slow even though it is not an old, obsolete one. I just purchased it about 2 months ago. Since it takes me a lot of time- about 2 hour driving- to go to the store and get tech. support, I haven't talked to the technicians there about my computer problems yet.
It takes about 4-5 minutes for my computer to startup everytime I turn it on, also it takes at least 1-2 minutes to shut it down completely. I believe thae speed is extremely slow for such a computer like mine. In addition, the program response time is very slow too, and I can see it defintely when comparing it with my old computer. It takes too much time to open up any program on my new computer such as: Firefox, Winamp, Nero, Word, Excel... This doesn't happen on my old computer. I have no idea why it runs that slow. I read PC magazines and PC stuff often, and I was informed that AMD dual core chip runs faster and more stable than Intel chip. It was the reason why this time I chose to buy an AMD product computer instead of Intel. However, it really disappoints me. Below is my new computer's spec, the one I'm having problem with, and my old computer's spec, the one running fast and smoothly. I hope anyone here can help me figure out what's wrong with my computer or give me any suggestion. I greatly appreciate it.

- 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 first detected a problem on my computer when I noticed the Windows Update icon on the bottom right on the monitor. I checked out what the updates were about and selected 1 important and 1 optional update. Normally, the updates are updated fairly quickly. However, after walking away from my computer for approximately 15 to 20 minutes, I came back to check the progress, and there was 0 % downloaded and 0 % data downloaded. The size of the files were not too large. These were the 2 updates selected:

The important update is for: Security Update Microsoft Silverlight

The Maintenance Centre of  Windows 7 gives messages that say Windows Security Centre is dissabled and should be enabled again.  When I try to enable it again, it shows the message : " The Windows Security Centre cannot be enabled."  The  computer has generally been slow the past couple days.  I ran MaxSpywaredetector, this showed a Trojan, but I was unable to remove any threats.  Running Malwarebytes showed no Trojans.  Could you please help me fix this problem?

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

Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service. This problem prevent standard users from logging on to the system. As an administrative user, you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond.
 
And my laptop become very slow
 
What I've done:

It took me 10 hrs to install this program. How do I re-install it or get rid of it. I don't have a disk, bought from microsoft off internet.

A:Windows 8 runs slower than windows 7 its very very slow,

Did you do an upgrade install? If yes, then a clean install may be your only chance for success. Do you have the ISO from your Win8 installation? Then, make an install DVD or Flash drive so you can do a clean install. Do you need to re-download the ISO, then go here. For additional instructions on doing any of these things, then post back and let us know what your want to do. And, also, you could downgrade to Win7: Downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7.

A:IE8 runs slow

It's more likely to be not enough RAM installed. If you have 256 or 512MB it will struggle, if you can get 1GB installed it would make a big difference to your pc's overall speed.
* Also you could try a more lightweight web browser, such as Firefox 1.5 or 2.0. (You might have it on a Magazine CD from a few years ago, or it must be available to download, somewhere.

My computer has been running slow for the last 2 months. One day it froze up and I had to hard boot to get out. It scanned disk, repaired some bad sectors, and was back up again just to have the same thing happen 3 more times. I have since run another scandisk and it is not locking up anymore, but is running very slow. It has been defragged. I run SUPERantispyware, upadated daily. I have current Antivirus and Firewall with Mcafee. I have used MS config to not start any programs except for my 2wire, modem for DSL, and Mcafee applications. I just bought Reg Cure and have been running that to clean up my registry. I have uninstalled any programs I know are not essential. Also, I keep getting Mcafee update alerts, but am not able to download update, error messages. It sometimes sounds like the computer is working when it should be.

A:win xp sp2 runs slow

Have you connected to MS Windows website and made sure that you are current on all updates?
If no- that would be the first step as that is where the patch is usually put.

But more importantly- what type of programs are you running and how much RAM memory do you have? If there are a lot of programs running in the back ground- new programs may suffer in performance.

helloMy computer runs slow. I have done all of the logical steps to insure that there are no problems with virus, adware, defragmentation, etc. The bottom line is that it take time to open folders and startup applications. Sometimes when starting an application, it freezes and I have to open task manager to stop the process and kill the application. Then, all of a sudden, it works. Note, once the applications start, they run fine with no problems. It just seems that the system is sluggish when it has to "find" things. So that leads me to believe that I may have a possible problem with the NTFS table. Is there any way to check if this is the problem? Is it possible that I simply do not have enough resources? (note, I have included specifications below).Any advice are suggesstions are well appreciated.My system is:Antec 900 - 650W ATX Intel DQ35JOE Intel Core 2 DUO Q6600 Quad Core 4gb 2gb 800mhz DDR2 DIMM 500gb SATA 7200rpm (255GB remain available for use)Alpha Dog gForce FX 8800 512 pci XP Pro SP3

Before last month, my PC was fine. But now it runs
very slow. I checked TaskManager. There are no
strange process. CPU is used only 2% most of time,
memory is used only 20% (of 500M momory).

Even in the boot period, my PC is also much slower
than before. After start, specially when I launched IE
browser, the machine almost hanged.

Is there any hardware problem?
This is Sony VAIO machine. I bought it 5 years ago.

A:PC runs slow

quite often common causes of slowness are spyware and trojans. be sure to do regular and through spyware and virus scans of all your hard drives. sometimes these can also caouse slow start ups. if u are free of these then try to kepp around 10 gigs free space on your hdd at all time. full or cluttered hdd's will cause slowdown issues. Also i know it sounds bizarre but i encountered a problem once where one of my dvd burners had malfunctioned. windows kew it was there but could not access it. that made the machine extremely slow and sluggish, but as in your case the cpu usage was less the 25%. its also worth doing a cheeck of your ram with something like memtest86

Hello smart folks,

My Dell Inspiron 9300 laptop used to boot up in under a minute. Now, it takes several minutes and any time I run a program it takes a long time for them to boot up. And, heck, I see delays in programs while they're in use.

I just upgraded from 512MB to 2 GB of RAM hoping that would help. It didn't.

I've followed your steps and I think my computer is a lot safer now. Thank you.

I run Norton antivirus.

I feel like the biggest contributor to my laptop's slowness is Enterprise Office 2007. Some little searching magnifying glass seems to always be on and my computer's hard drive seems to grind a lot even when the computer should be sitting there idle.

If I open a Microsoft Office 2007 program like Word, Excel, or Outlook, they open REALLY slowly.

Also, can you please recommend a good registry scrubber? I like freeware, but I'll buy it if I must. That RegCure program seems like a scam. Below is my HiJack This log. I've also included the start up log below it since my start up is so slow.

Thank you.

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!)

I'm trying to solve a "slow computer" problem for a friend...The stand-alone version of AVG Anti-Spyware runs slowly on his machine and does not not scan smoothly, stalling a bit every 5 to 15 seconds. This happens even when running in safe mode. Occasionally the scanner will freeze right after I begin scanning, forcing me to do a cold reboot (ctrl-alt-dlt doesn't work).I have run other virus checkers and the system - 1.4 GHZ Gateway desktop, XP Pro SP2 - looks clean, but seems like it should run a bit faster than it is. Nothing unusual is running on startup or via processes, at least nothing I can see in msconfig. A recent "HijackThis" logfile doesn't appear to show anything malevolent.Another weird symtptom is that the Windows "chimes" sound is sometimes cut off when the PC boots up.What could be causing this? Thanks...Moderator Edit: Moved topic to more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

If you are sure no malware issues Please follow these steps : ? Defrag your system. Disk fragmentation slows the overall performance of your system. When files are fragmented, the computer must search the hard disk when a file is opened. Disk Defragmenter consolidates fragmented files and folders on the hard disk so that each occupies a single space on the disk. This speeds up reading and writing to the disk. Read "The Importance of Disk Defragmentation" for instructions.? Check for disk errors by running CHKDSK. CHKDSK can be run from the Recovery Console, the command prompt or through the Windows GUI.To run chkdsk from the Win XP GUI see these instructions.To run chkdsk from the command prompt see these instructions.To run chkdsk from the Recovery Console see these instructions.The problem with running CHKDSK from Win XP is that it will not check files that are being used by Windows. Using chkdsk in the Recovery Console with the /r switch is a way to resolve this.? Check for damaged, altered or missing critical system files by running the System File Checker. If SFC discovers that a protected file has been damaged, altered or missing, it restores the correct version of the file from the cache folder.

Running older PC Clone 2.0 Ghz Dual CPU Pentium, 1GB Ram Win XP Home Edition system.

While navigation on Internet Explorer or Google Chrome, system runs extrememly slow and/or crashes. When using applications such as Itunes, Email, or simply opening up Word and other applications, it runs very slow and almost seems to stop. The IE7 that was on the computer had changed to an operate with add-ons off as a result of the infection. I downloaded and reinstalled IE7 and this seems to have fixed that problem for the time being. MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpy icons dissappeared from my desktop. When trying to use them from the Start / Menu options the programs no longer worked. I reinstalled them and they appear to work fine now. However, the system still seems to run very slow over all and its performance is greatly hindered.

Next, I ran free version of SuperAntiSpyware and all it detected was a couple Adware cookies. Secondly, I ran free version of Malware Bytes Anti-Malware and it detected PUP.GamePlayLab infections located in the Registry Key: HKLM\SOFTGWARE\Microsoft\Windows.... These files were removed and quarantined by MWB. Thirdly, I ran Old Timer's TFC and then rebooted the computer and it appeared to run a little faster, but still sluggish while using IE7. So, finally, I ran ESET Free Online Scanner, and it detected "Win32/Toolbar.Babylon and Win32/TopMedia.a" virus infections. Scan took about 2 1/2 hours. I set it to search the drives/ar... Read more

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.

Hi, I ran all sort of programs to detect wtf is going on with this computer. I ran Hijackthis witch I heard isn't reliable with windows 7. Had Anti-Malware byte premium scan, Avast, Trend Micro HouseCall, Kaspersky TDSSKiller, Used LSP Fix to fix Winsock 2 problems shown in Hijackthis. So without any results, I tried the DDS toll, but found it hindering for its lacking an automatic analyzer as found on Hijackthis.de. I then found this forum, that people seems to post their logs to be analyzed by people. By the way, nice job, I have no friken Idea how to figure out what is normal and abnormal within this log. Can you help with the interpretation? Thank you very much for your time.

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?

The easiest thing is to check your system drive. Is it almost full, or installed too many applications? If your system drive has small RAM, I'm afraid the running speed will be slow.

Ever since upgrading to version 6 (I have now upgraded to 6.1), Spy Sweeper takes about 8 hours to run a quick sweep and 30 hours to do a full sweep. I am using Vista SP1. I have tried numerous times to contact Webroot tech support but have gotten nowhere with them. Any suggestions as to what might be causing this to happen? Thanks

Hi Guys,
I have a sony vaio laptop with the following config:
OS: Win 7 Pro
Ram: 6 GB
HDD: 650 GB
Processor: i7-2640M @ 2.8 GHZ
HDD RPM: 5400
I have installed Windows XP using Microsoft Virtual PC. I run three programs in XP Mode and a couple of programs in Windows 7. I have allotted 1.5 GB Ram to XP mode.
In the xp mode the performance is very slow. At times even opening my computer and navigating to a folder takes a while.
Is there anything I can do to speed things up? Can I overclock my laptop also?
Please advice.
Thank you,
Cheers,
GR
 

A:XP mode runs slow

I have installed Windows XP using Microsoft Virtual PC.
 
Are running XP Mode?  Install and use Windows XP Mode in Windows 7
 
I don't know of a single oem BIOS which hasn't be set so that overclocking isn't an option.

I thought of downgrading to Windows XP. Should I? (Pirated) and please realize in GTA IV, under "Display" my available video ram is 489... wow. WTF, I haz 4GB's that is must not be interpreting. I so hope GTA 5 Isn't this much of a disaster!

Um, anything else I should add? According to "Canyourunit.com" I'm BEAT recommended, but I only get 1-10 FPS. Please help me?
 

A:GTA IV runs slow, but I have a powerful rig?

Sorry to break it to you, but, no you don't (have a powerful rig)...at least by GTA standards.

Firstly; All the GTA series are CPU clockspeed sensitive. 3.4GHz I would consider "entry level" for the most part, and anything above this would definitely be better.

Secondly; Your graphics card....basically NO, unless you're turning down the graphics options (esp. draw distance) way, way down and using a low screen resolution. Personally I'd place as much faith in "canyourunit" as I would in used car salesmen. You can try YouGamers but this is also going to be very optimistic

Hi,

I have Pentium 4 (2.4 GHz ) with 1GB Ram...

I use photoshop CS2 and in photoshop Preferences it shows available Ram as 892Mb, from which I have alloted 800Mb to it and set image cache at 8.

Everything works very fine except for one thing that when I press the Tab Button and hide all the windows like " layer window, swatches window, tools options...etc" and again press TAB Button to show those windows they appear very late.

I think they should not appear late cuz I am giving photoshop 800Mb of Ram, is it still not enough to work fast?

Can anyone of you help me and tell me what is the possible cuz of this problem.

Remember: Sometime photoshop runs FINE, windows don't appear late, but this happens once out of 100 times

thank you very much
 

A:My Photoshop Runs Slow :(

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Doesn`t Photoshop CS have an option to automatically assign ram? If it does, you may be better off using that option.

Take a look at this link HERE.

Maybe you have some programmes running in the background that you don`t need. If so disable them in msconfig`s start up menu.

Download and run the Ccleaner(crap cleaner) programme from HERE. Also, run a disk cleanup and defrag your hard drive.

GPUs: Dual sli-linked nVidia 8800GT's
4 GB RAM.

Thanks to a failure for Vista 64-bit to work properly as well I eventually decided to downgrade and run with Windows XP Professional x64 so that I could resume my 3d work without RAM limitations that were bringing me down due to some of my more complex CG scenes. But nonetheless, XP64 seems to be running terribly slow as well keeping me from doing even mundane tasks (non-3d) at a reasonable speed. I'll just list the problems out:

-Programs such as Firefox, Winamp, etc. run at near full 100% CPU (but only on one cpu, not all four). This, as a result, results in slow firefox browsing etc. but not a slow overall computer. Winamp does the same thing but has choppy audio when it's running most of the time.

-I tried to install Windows Media Player 11 x64 for music to see if that would help, but even upon running it after install, the program still shows as wmplayer*32.exe in the process manager.

-Booting Windows is about a 10 minute process.

-Restarting the computer helps for a little while. After a reboot, programs run fairly quickly but once I've used two or three programs, they start bogging down and get worse over time; never better.

-Working in 3ds max on Windows XP (normal) is about 4 times faster than now (Currently attempting to use 3ds max 2008 64-bit).

First off, make sure you have all your Updates. Use the custom option from the Updates web page and make sure you have everything (don't do the video drivers from Microsoft, get the latest video drivers from your GPU's manufacturer).

Hey guys. I am on my friends Dell Dimension 3000. Not the top of the line computer as I'm sure you know, but it used to run good enough for her. However, now it runs incredibly slow.

My computer always used to run smoothly. Now whenever I play games the computer lags like there's no tomorrow. I thought about putting this in the games section, however I figure it is not really the games that is doing it. I know it isn't my internet connection. In fact, I did a fresh install and the problems didn't let up.

I'm running a Dell Inspiron XPS (Gen 1)
ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9700
512MB RAM

I've done complete spy, adware, and norton scans. There is one file norton always picks up I can't seem to get rid of but I have trouble seeing thing as the source of my problem. Everything else deleted what it found. Again, my computer used to run fine, all my games are on the lowest settings.
