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

Hi,

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 don't know if I'm protected or not and I believe my machine is infected. Also, I keep getting a message that Windows cannot get any updates. I'd really appreciate your help and I'm just hoping to clean my machine up and make sure that it's properly protected.

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 with an Intel Core2 Duo CPU 2.33 GHz with 3 GB of RAM and I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium Svc Pack 1 and IE 7. And I believe I have the install disks. Izipped the attach and ark files together accidentally, I hope that doesn't cause a problem.

Thank you very much...

A:Computer runs slow, windows can't get updates, can't remove Norton

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 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.

Please help me.

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?

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.

My comp was crashing for no reason, and I ended up doing a factory restore. It seemed all my programs were locked up, so I had no other option. Windows was downloaded @ the factory, but still needs updating. I reinstalled McAfee (I have dialup) but it won't run-it keeps rebooting over and over. It closes AOL, and drops, then goes thru how do you want to start - I say normal windows. Sometimes it goes thru this 3 or 4 times before Windows will actually start. Sometimes my Windows are frozen-pointer and all, in the middle of a different (any) program and I have to turn my comp off. I am very comp illiterate . Please help.

Okay, here is my dilemma, my system will randomly just reboot, no warning and it is erratic, it will happen when I am on it doing something at times, other times I will come back and discover that it had rebooted itself while I was away.
It sometimes has a pop up window saying that windows has recovered from a serious error.

Windows is up to date

Hello all, this is my first post here. I'm a college student; majoring in computer systems engineering technology. Classes don't start for spring until the end of the week, so I can't have my professors help me, so I'm using fourms to fix my problem. Here it is:

These problems were fixed by: Uninstalling Internet Explorer 7, and running TuneUp2008, which has a registry cleaner, which fixed several problems. Everything seemed to work fine after this; up until I attempted to use Spyware Blaster and Ad-Aware. The computer was not allowing them to access the internet.
Checked the Windows Firewall, and added the programs to the exceptions list, still nothing.

Then I realized that they had Norton Internet Security 2006 installed, so figuring that it was the Norton firewall blocking those programs I attempted to open Norton.

A:WinXP won't start; chkdsk repeatedly runs and reboots

Hi kota132 and welcome to TSF !

First thing would be to run the diagnostics utility :
http://support.dell.com/support/edoc....htm#wp1062918
Report if it finds or fixes errors. Once that's done see if chkdsk can complete.

If chkdsk still loops then see if you can access safe mode with command prompt. If not then we can try to fix the master boot record from the recovery console but before we do that I strongly suggest that you hook the hard drive in another computer to backup all personal files and data.

You should stay away from registry cleaners as they can do more harm than good. When there's a single problem with a single program the best solution is to run dedicated repair utilities (like this method to repair IE) or to manually edit the registry so that you know what changes are being made. You should also always create a backup before you do any changes to the registry. Please use erunt for that purpose as it allows to recover from a corrupted registry from the recovery console.

A:Winxp Won't Load; Chkdsk Repeatedly Runs And Reboots

A registry entry can cause chkdsk to run on each boot - but so can having the "dirty bit" set on the hard drive (a more likely, IMO, scenario). Unfortunately, I know of no way (short of editing the disk directly) to reset this bit - it usually requires a full format to reset it.

That being said, I'd suggest running a bootable hard drive diagnostic from the manufacturer of the hard drive. Most manufacturere's have one available for free. If one isn't readily availablt, then I'd suggest Hitachi's Drive Fitness Test to check the drive.

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

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:

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?

Hello, I'm Vicki, this is my first post here. I have Windows 7 Professional, service pack 1 & I'm hoping someone has suggestion of what I can do to resolve this problem as I'm not making any headway myself.
When I start the computer all seems normal until it reaches the microsoft 'windows is starting' splash screen, then a message in largeish white writing runs across the screen that says something about 2 of 17,245 updates. I can't read the whole thing as it flashes by so quickly, pause doesn't work. Then the computer says 'preparing to configure widows 35%,  then shuts down, same again but now says 'configuring windows updates 35%', then restarts again. Next comes 'failure configuring windows updates', next 'reverting to ....?" then finally the computer starts & seems to work normally. BUT it is not as it is going far slower than usual & is chewing through my data allowance at an alarming rate. I have satelite internet connection with 10gig plan usually use 3, this month 8.5 already!.
I check the windows update in control panel which tells me "Most recent check for updates:Never", "Updates were installed:Never" I view update history & it is empty, I view installed updates & there is a list, nothing there will respond to uninstall. I ask to check for updates, "Windows could not search for new updates" Error code 80073712, get help with this error just tells me to 'check the spelling'!

Hi Vicki and welcome to BleepingComputer May you list a few solutions you tried on your own so we don't repeat them or at least get a better idea of what you tried so far and what modifications were made to the system Also, there's no need to install Windows 8.1 for that, they're Microsoft, of course they'll try to sell you the most recent OS. In the worst case, you could easily reinstall Windows 7 manually yourself, or via the Factory Restore method if your computer/laptop have a Recovery partition or CD/DVD.

Hello,
Throughout the day whenever I try to use my computer, I can hear my hard drive running, when I go to Task manager the application 'Updates from HP' is running. This wouldn't be a problem except I can't run any other program because everything else slows to a crawl. So I end Updates from HP so that I can use the computer. I can't find the specific program that is running this. I've gone to HP software updates under HP program and clicked never check for updates and also the notify me button. This program continues to run.

I searched for other posts on this subject but can't seem to find anything out there, if you could point me to another thread that would be helpful, I'm sure.

Thanks for any help.

A:Solved: Updates from HP runs continuously

Click Start - Run, type in MSCONFIG and then click OK - "Startup" tab.

Everything listed there with a checkmark next to it is automatically loading during startup and running in the background. Other than the antivirus program and third-party firewall program(if one is being used), very few others, if any, need to load and run.

This site will assist you in managing the startup list and trimming it down.

(Note: If you're using Windows ME or Windows XP, a window will appear during restart after you've edited the startup list. Ignore the message. Just place a checkmark in it and then click OK. This will prevent the window from reappearing again - unless you edit the startup list again.)

Is anyone else seeing this? I have Security Essentials scheduled to do a full scan overnight every weekend. The last couple of weekends after getting up I've found that MSE has hung; the tray icon shows that its still "spinning" but it really has just hung up, with a problem in msseces.exe. The last time MSE ran a scheduled scan to completion was 12/5. So sometime after that, I'm assuming a MS Update caused some incompatibility. I do updates fairly often, so there are quite a few that I have no idea how to narrow down. Any help appreciated.

I was browsing the internet the other day when I clicked on a link and my computer shut down. I immediately knew it was a bad link. My computer rebooted and it wouldn't let me on IE after that at all. I then did a restore to the previous day. I was about to get online so I went and downloaded Kaspersky IS and scanned my computer. My laptop messed up and rebooted itself. Then got Anti-Malware Bytes in Safe mode and ran a scan, still had issues Kaspersky not running right and my computer freezing after just a couple of minutes. Went back and did a restore again to the same spot and this time said forget Kaspersky and jsut did AMWB. It showed my computer is clean, yet about 2 minutes after booting, my computer reboots and the safe mode option pops up. I can run ok in safe mode but cannot get it to work in normal mode. I did trend micros housecall and another online scanner and all say my computer is clean. Yet, when I start IE, I am redirected on every link I click to scour..... or another site with links on it. Any help is greatly appreciated, as well as a recommendation for a better Anti-virus. I jsut had McAfree that came with this laptop. Thanks!

Hello, I'm a first time user of your website, and first of all, let me applaud you for your efforts in helping out average joes like us in cleaning up our PCs. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

Second, I know you receive no less than a 100 posts per day, most of which are similar to my problem, so please bear with me and I'll be more than willing to cooperate with you. I have already followed the first 5 steps as listed in your sticky post as closely as I could.

Here goes;
For three days now, I've been suffering from some vicious malware that has corrupted my defenses and slowed down my PC processing capabilities. Windows automatic updates refuses to be turned on (automatically or manually through the control panel), most Windows applications like Microsoft Word or Windows Media Player either freeze or crash only seconds within their activation, and my Internet browsing keeps slowing down especially if I'm using Internet Explorer. And I keep getting these pop-up ads and pop-up windows that announce a antivirus software or games like Gladiatus or BiteFight (which I'm guessing is another trojan ploy). Whenever my antivirus detects an infected file (mostly Monder trojan alerts), whenever I try to disinfect the file, the file itself disappears and the anti-virus announces the file being undetected or missing.

I'm using Kaspersky 7, which hasn't been able to track any viruses or trojans only except for a handful of traces. Here's an extract of some reports I've go... Read more

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

Greetings forum, this is my first post on this site. I was wondering if I might get some information on how to fix my computer. I was unsure where best to put this question, but I decided to just stick it here under the XP boards.

My computer is a dell E520 2.8ghz pemtium-D, 4gigs ram, 512 video card. When I try to play games on it, games that I have a the specs beat on by a mile, it still runs very slow and choppy. I have to turn down my settings on everything to its absolute minimum setting and it still is almost unplayable. I did do a reinstall back in February of XP, but I downloaded all of the drivers for the chipsets and things off of the dell site using my service tag linked to my computer. My video card is a GeForce 7300 LE.

Having said all of that, I was wondering if I can increase the speed of my computer any without going and buying a whole new one. If i get a different video card would that help? I already have 4gigs of ram, but do I need more? My 3d mark score on this computer is less than 3,000, and my laptop can get that score at half the resources.

Thanks for your help and time,
Chris

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

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

Thanks.

So, I've done a lot of research and have put many things to the test. To explain the situation, my computer would freeze up sometimes and I'd have to clear my CMOS a few times now to make it work. It hasn't worked at all this time. I was slapping a moth on my computer and I was in a game of "Overwatch" in which the computer froze and has not  turned on since.
 
Things I've tried:
Clearing CMOS
Plugging in just the power for the motherboard and fans will show the fans run for about 4 seconds, switch off, then turn on until I turn it off again.
Pluggin in the monitor to the motherboard will show nothing.
No beeps regardless of what is and is not plugged in. 
Lights on the motherboard will display at all times.
Tried having 1 stick of ram or switching ram around.
Tried cleaning CPU / placing CPU back in (Which I think is the right way (arrow pointing towards the square on the motherboard) This was one of the last things I tried.
 
The current result is often being able to turn on the "computer" and it will stall for a moment and then the fans will run for until I turn it off. 
 
That's most of the things I've tried. A few things missing that I probably don't remember. I don't have any fancy gadgets or things to help me test anything. Regardless, thank you for anyone who can help.

Hello there, I have recently put in a new power supply and heat sink in my gaming computer but has been running hot and parts of windows freezes up at times I can't get into anything unless I shut the computer down for awhile to cool off.

I did manage to run SpyBot search and destroy in safe mode just to clear a couple trojans just to get by so I no longer have freezing problem so otherwise I wouldn't be able to run all the required scans needed to attach the logs below.

Only problem was MGLOGS was the Process Dll scan did not go through everything else did.

Please look over my logs and see what malware is bogging down my computer

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

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

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

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

Cheers.

For the past year when I turn on my computer, after 5-15 minutes the fan kicks on and runs constantly. It's really loud and is running at a high speed. As soon as the fan kicks on, the entire computer slows, almost to a halt and I have to restart it. I've been battling with Dell for the past year about it and they have replaced the following parts:
Fan (4 times)
Motherboard (3 times)
Heat Sink (4 times)
Processor (3 times)
Keyboard
I'm not sure what the keyboard had to do with anything, but oh well.
Even the day of replacing these items, the fan would STILL kick on. It kicks on even faster when watching a movie or getting on the internet. Throughout the past year, the internet has slowly gone away, I can no longer connect to internet...whether it's wireless, broadband, or dial-up.
What else could be causing the fan to kick on?
I have also reformatted the computer at least 3 times.
Thanks,
Ashley

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

A:vbc.exe runs when starting computer

VBC.exe is Visual Studio (Microsoft)

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

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

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

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

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

A:Computer Runs Slowly

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

The Last Time It Crashed, Windows Would Not Boot It, Would Just Take Me To The Blue Welcome Screen And Thats As Far As It Would Go. I Had To Use Repair Option On The Windows Xp Boot Cd To Fix The Problem. That Seemed To Work But Ever Since Then The Computer Has Been Freezing Or Slowing Down Really Bad. Ive Tried To Use The Win Doctor On My Norton 2003 And Also Adaware And Spybot To Fix The Problem But Nothing. I Suspect That When I Try To Run Apps That Use Up A Lot Of Memory The Computer Seems To Not Be Able To Handle It.

Please Help! Thanks..
 

A:Computer Runs Slowly

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

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

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

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

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

A:New Computer Runs Poorly

The nv*.sys files are usually nVidia drivers.

Check Device Manager. Click "show hidden devices"

Any flags ?

Uninstall, then reinstall the drivers.

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

A whole lot of messing around.

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

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

HI, my computer turns on but there's NO picture. I have read other threads similar to mine and believe that it is my motherboard causing the problem, but how do I know its my CPU and not my motherboard, or maybe even both?

Hi,

If I leave Firefox open and leave my computer for a couple hours, when I come back the entire computer runs really slowly. Usually Firefox is unresponsive and won't close unless I 'end task'. Also, when I reboot my computer, it can take several minutes before I am able to open Firefox or Microsoft IE. I click on the browser icon and the browser doesn't open for several minutes. Any help would be appreciated.

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

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?

A:Computer is slow, runs itself sometimes

Bump, Please.

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

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

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

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

lately I've noticed that my labtop starts acting choppy at times. It lags or chops whenever I watch a video,play a game, sometimes when i'm doing nothing. I would appreciate it if someone replied thx(PS i have windows 7)
 

A:Computer Runs Choppy

Hmmm, could be the auto defrag schedular running (if you're doing this late at night). Could also be a large number of software running at the same time. Could also be because you're asking this question on April the 1st?

Randomly, about 2-3 weeks ago my computer began to run slowly. If I'm just browsing the internet or using word documents and things like that it is fine and I cannot tell. The problem lies in things like playing games or running programs like itunes. I checked for all virus/malware, and there was nothing that I could see. I did a defrag and cleaned/cleared the registry and temp folder. Does this sound like it could be a hardware or driver problem? If its not a virus, could you give me a few other reason a computer would start doing this randomly.

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

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

I do have a windows start-up disk.

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

Thank you for your help,
Dan

A:Computer Runs Slow + LOP

Yep...that's LOP all right...let's do this, before even tackling the infection, to ID any hidden jobs and folders.

Download fl.zip
Extract the contents to a new folder on Desktop.
Within the folder, locate & double-click fl.bat.
It should produce a report at c:\findlop.txt. Post the contents of the report in your next reply

Hi,

I previously posted before but had to repost since HijackThis is not used for diagnosing problems. I think and I am pretty sure my computer has been infected with spyware. Anyways please find a copy of the DDS text and the attach.zip file.

A:My computer runs slowly

Hello again,

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

Please uninstall the following programs:

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


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

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

Perils of P2P File Sharing

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


Quote:




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





===========================================

Since you already have HijackThis installed, please scan with it again and put a checkmark against the following entries, if still present:

I have installed already instaaled : ewido, spywareblaster, spywareguard, ie-spyad,..
Sometimes also orther explorer bar installed : www.search123forme.com/sp2.php.
Any suggestions on how to solve the problem.
Thank you
 

A:Computer runs sometimes very slow

For a slow computer, basic stuff to eliminate would be
chances of infection- if ur not sure, you might want to get ur log checked by a HTJ expert.
If there are too many items loading at start up, disable unnecessary ones.
Check ur HD space, if you havent already, run a disk cleanup and if the drive s fragmented, defrag it in safe mode after a chkdsk this can help improve performance.
How much RAM do you have? Consider adding more.
Aso if its been a long time, check if all ur fans are working fine and also blow out the dust.
