Internet Explorer running slowly/Multiple iexplore.exe running

Q: Internet Explorer running slowly/Multiple iexplore.exe running

Hi there, thanks for viewing this.

Recently, my internet explorer 7 and firefox has been running quite slowly. After googling a bit, I found out that this problem could be caused by the iexplore.exe virus.

Many iexplore.exe was running in the processes tab of the Windows task manager when my internet browsers were not in use. This may have caused the slowness.

I have a logfile of TrendMicro's Hijackthis v2.0.2:

I am running Win7, IE8. Lately when I run an Internet Shortcut (url) I get multiple instances of iexplore.exe that show up in Task Manager. When I close IE8, they do not go away and just keep increasing in number. If I start IE8 directly, it does not happen. I run Norton Virus Protection supplied by Comcast. I have run the scan and also done a conversation with the Norton Tech who checked my computer. I have run various Malware Software programs but nothing shows up.

Hi all,

My Windows XP and Internet Explorer both start-up very slowly and run extremely slowly. I run Ad-Aware SE and AVG regularly, but there's still something hanging around and slowing things down. Could a Gold Shield take a look at my Hijackthis log below and give me some guidance?

Many thanks!

Hi,

I am having problems with my computer where Internet Explorer 8 is running slowly and crashing. I have checked the event logs and noticed the following errors:

Faulting application iexplore.exe, version 8.0.6001.18813, time stamp 0x4a6621ae, faulting module Flash10c.ocx, version 10.0.32.18, time stamp 0x4a613d79, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x0023e55a, process id 0x85c, application start time 0x01ca2c79de31429a.

Failed to load the plug-in module. (GUID = {56F9312C-C989-4E04-8C23-299DEE3A36F5})(Error code = 0x80042019)

I am currently running Windows Vista and have Norton Antivirus installed. The internet explorer erro message above shows up in the log numerous times but often has a slightly different message e.g isntead of having Flash10.ocx it sometimes has other dll names.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks for your help.

Mike.

Hello, I am having problems with IE 8 on my desktop. I am connected to the interent wirelessly using a network adapter and using Windows Vista for my OS . I am connected at 4.8 m/bs and the connection status is excellent. For some reason IE andy other browser Goole Chrome will connect but it will take a very long time just to even load the home page or visit anoter site.

I have not had this problem before and was surfing the Internet very fast a few days ago with the same connection speed and status. I have already tried deleting cookies, history, temporary files. Ran a virus scan. Ran a disk clean up and reinstalled both of the browsers does anyone know a solution to this problem or has had the same problem on the past?

A:Internet Explorer running very slowly; wireless connection excellent

You could have a bad add-on.Try running IE in No Add-ons Mode. Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) - If this fixes the issue, then go to Tools -> Manage Add-ons and enable the add-ons one by one to find which one was causing the problem.

You can also try resetting Internet Explorer's settings by going to Tools > Internet Options and then the "Advanced" tab, and click "Reset..."

Let me know if this solves your problem.

Cheers,

I have recently noticed that my computer and internet speed would suddenly be slow. I also noticed that my router would be blinking when I was not using the internet, and nothing was updating that I could tell. A couple of weeks ago, I had the Google redirect problem. I was finally able to discover TDSSKiller to fix that problem. On July 1, I began watching a video online, when I noticed there was no sound coming from the computer. I checked everything out. As it turned out, something had turned the Wave volume under the Advanced Volume settings all the way down. I turned the volume back up and was watching the video again, when I heard an online ad that says "Congrats, You Won." But that particular ad was not on the page that I was on. I also began to hear clicking sounds coming from the speakers. About five minutes later, the Wave volume was turned down again. I guess it does this so you can't hear the ads and clicking. I figured something was wrong with my computer, so I used System Restore. After doing that, I had problems with my McAfee. Real-time scanning was turned off. I turned it on. It turned off. As it turned out, a program called AV Security Suite had been installed on my computer. I ended up using Malwarebytes to remove some of the problems on my computer. I also had the Google redirect problem again. So I used TDSSKiller to remove it again. I knew something was not right, so I looked in the Task Manager. That is when I saw thr... Read more

Hello.
 
I recently noticed my computer was slow and decided to pop up task manager to take a look. What I noticed was that there would be multiple internet explorer processes running (minimum three). These are even visible in the applications tab, usually consisting of two separate hidden windows that are not visible on my task bar.
 
These internet explorer applications appear to be accessing several different websites, including youtube, some tarot card forum and some ip addresses that I do not wish to pursue. I am suspecting my computer is part of a botnet and is being used to send spam.
I remember after viewing a Chinese movie a few days ago, I did receive a dialog box a few days ago asking to permit changes to flash. I clicked "No". 
 
An odd thing is that if I open up Chrome, additional chrome processes would be added (more than one).
 
I have run a scan by Malwarebytes. It did remove a few things in my temporary internet files and a registry key, but the behavior still continues.
 
So summary:
- multiple internet explorer processes running in background
- did previously receive a dialog box asking for flash player changes, clicked NO
- have run Malwarebytes, deleted a few things, behavior still continues
- opening one chrome window adds multiple chrome processes to background
 
What should I do?
 
Thank you.

the amount of iexplore.exe is usually 3-6. they all take up about 20-40k memory and no CPU. HOWEVER they seem to be slowing down IE8 a lot, everything feels laggy. it seems the more tabs i have opened, the more iexplore.exe pop up.

ive ran malwarebytes, super antispyware and AVG. all found nothing.

i read somewhere that maybe add-ons are causing this problem somehow.

A:Multiple iexplore.exe running

I guess this could be considered bumping but the primary purpose is for an update. Since posting the initial post I have download Avira (scanner that I've never heard of but used on advice) and scanned in safe mode. It found 2 trojans which I verified were actual trojans by searching the names on the internet. Avira also found a couple, what I think may have been false positives, spywares in a program that I didn't use much so I removed the program anyway. After rebooting in regular mode firefox did not lock up at all that time and the next two or three consecutive ones following that. Just prior to me commencing giggling like a school girl the problem re-appered. At this point I am out of options so if anyone has any suggestions of any sort it would be most appreciated. I would also like to mention again that I did not post this just to "bump" the post but to state what I have done since the last post and to show that I am still having this problem and checking this board for any suggestions. Thanks

At seemingly sporadic times, there will be random ads sounding off in the background. I checked task manager and found Internet Explorer running in the 'Applications' tab, but no IE windows were present in my taskbar. In the 'Processes' tab, about 3-4 iexplore.exe would be running, with one that is consuming exceptionally high amounts of memory, from 50 K - 350 K. I am unable to 'end task' the IE application but i can temporarily stop the problem by ending all iexplore.exe process. However, after some time the problem reoccurs.
I believe the cause of this problem is due to a dupe Adobe Acrobat site that I was tricked into clicking to download the update just a day prior. Upon the completion of the download, my avast antivirus immediately notified me of the malware and then proceeded to block the infections by sending them to the virus chest. However, that did not seem to fully nullify the malware. I then restarted my computer as I did not want to click anything from the dubious prompts I was presented with. Afterwhich, I deleted whatever I had downloaded. I checked my control panel for any newly installed programs and found something called 'sursenel' that was installed/modified at the same time the virus was detected. However it was located in AppData which I believe to be essential files for the Windows OS, so I have not done anything to it for fear of data corruption. I used avast antivirus to scan that 'sursenel' folder and no threats were found. I have since then done a ... Read more

My task manager shows me multiple iexplore.exe files running in the background. But i dont use IE at all. I had read somewhere on the net that a squared anti spyware can remove this. I installed and ran a-squared, but the problem persists. I am currenlty using AVG Free antivirus and AVG anitspyware. i have scanned my computer using both, but am still unable to get rid of the virus/ spyware.

The multiple processes eat away a lot of memory and slowdown my computer. Shutting the processes using task manager doesn't help as the processes restart again, slowing my comp even further.

Someone please help me!

A:Multiple Iexplore.exe Process Running

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? Did you try doing an anti-virus scan in "SAFE MODE"? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans? If you do a Google search you will find numerous complaints of multiple instances of iexplore.exe running in Task Manager. This could problem could be malware or non-malware related. For example, there are worms like W32/Lovgate-AD that will cause the same problem you are experiencing. In addition to other files it drops iexplore.exe in C:\Windows\system32. The legit iexplore.exe is located in the C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer folder.For others the problem was related to the Yahoo toolbar and uninstalling it was the correct solution. Prior to doing this all anti-virus and anti-malware scans found nothing suspicious.Another possible cause has been traced to instant email notification settings at various board forums. A new instance of iexplore.exe was created each time the user opened an email, clicked a link and visted a forum. They were also using Spyware Doctor and the problem only occurred if that program was actively running in the background. When Spyware Doctor was disabled, the problem did not occur.

Hi there! I've read several forum posts about people having an issue very similar to mine, and I've come here hoping you knowledgeable folks might be able to help with my issue. Here's hoping 
 
Last night I was using Internet Explorer and I mis-clicked onto something I now know to have been a bad page. Within 30 seconds, my computer restarted itself, and when it came back up and I logged in to my user account, the entire desktop was black. I restarted the computer in hopes that maybe there was an explorer error, however the issue persisted. I then restarted the computer in safe mode with networking and ran a full scan with McAfee, letting it run overnight. When I awoke and checked the computer, nothing seemed to have been found as an issue. I restarted the computer and then managed to log back in to my user account normally and the desktop appeared as normal. Looking in the processes tab on the task manager I noticed that there were several instances of iexplore.exe running even though I hadn't started it up. I watched the processes for a short while and noticed that several processes started and culminated in an additional instance of iexplore.exe. The processes started, began another process, then terminated themselves. They were, in this order: dllhost.exe, ctfmon.exe, then finally iexplore.exe. The instances rapidly take up more and more processing power.

hi,
I am running in a bit of a trouble with my computer lately:

Multiple iexplore.exe processes while not using IE. Found this problem because i was using a radio toolbar on IE, i closed IE, and i still could hear the radio. Uninstalled the toolbar but still the same problem.
Because of this error my DNS is obviously running crazy.
yesterday i got 12 error messages of DNS closing down IE in one hour, while i was busy so i just tried to ignore them, and after a complete system scan of Norton, a full clean with CC-cleaner and re-installation of both internet explorer and java (because some guy on the internet said it could be because of java) I still have the problem. Only now it gives like 1 error message an hour lol.
Hope u guys can help. Many thanks anyway if you read this!

Thank you for taking the time to look at this thread. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Let me explain my problem before posting my HiJackThis log file. Since I have bought my desktop PC, I haven't ever taken to good of care of my computer. I almost never downloaded updates from Microsoft Updates, I had an expired AV program and I was just not acting smart. But within the last month, I have installed Kaspersky Internet Security 2009, installed System Mechanic, and updated to Service Pack 3. My computer is all around faster and better except I still have this one virus. What happeneds is everytime I connect to the Internet on any browser, iexplore.exe will pop up as multiple processes running, as if I had a lot of Internet Explorer windows open. I noticed this when my PC started to be extremely slow. So I opened Windows Task Manager by pressing ctrl+alt+dele. And there is about 15 iexplore.exe's running! I have tried everything I am capable of to stop them from running. The only thing I can do is keep having to "end process" them. But I believe I have pinointed multiple "HKLM\..\Run" that might have a role in this.
Here is my HiJackThis Log:

Hi, I have a customers computer that I've been struggling with for the last 2 days.  The computer was pretty much unusable when it came in, now it works pretty well but there are 2 to 4 "iexplore.exe *32" running in the process section.  TDSS Killer removes some sort of unknown item, but it keeps respawning.  I've run Malwarebytes, adwcleaner, Avast, and more.
 
Here's the problem.  I read in the sticky that it'll take on the average of 5 days for help in this forum.  My customer is a business customer and needs it back asap - I don't have 5 days (especially since I already have had it for 2 days).
 
What is the current time for help - by chance is the forum caught up so I can get help today?  If not I understand, but if I can't resolve this quickly I'll have to recommend to the customer to wipe out the hard drive and reload - he already expressed he didn't want to do that though.
 
Really hope i can get this resolved quickly for him...

My hardwired home network of two computers seems to be infected with a spyware or virus that neither Spybot Search and Destroy or AVG can find. We are seeing multiple instances of IEXPLORE running in the Task Manager's list of processes. When you try to delete them, you get a message that ending it early could cause a loss of information, etc. We choose to end anyway. We're getting a dozen of these running at once, all using RAM and generally causing a problem. We have had IE6 on one computer and IE7 on the other. Both have had Mozilla Firefox, too. The one with IE6 rarely used Firefox, so I uninstalled Firefox to see if that would have any impact. The only forum entries I've found (via Google) seem to go back to 2005 with no real resolution or culprit identified. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this problem.Moved from the XP Forum. ~acklan~

This computer is running very slowly. Granted it's an old computer with only 256 mb of RAM, but still it feels unnaturally sluggish. I disabled quite a bit of startup programs through msconfig, but I still think it's running very slow. Could anyone tell me if they see something in the HJT log that might lend towards the slow speeds?

I ran a Spybot S&D and Adaware 2008 scan yesterday and both didn't show anything but cookies.

Also, I tried getting rid of Realplayer through Add/Remove Programs and anytime I try to uninstall it says "Uninstaller Component Missing." Any ideas of how to get rid of this program?

And finally, (sorry I know it's a lot) there is a program in startup with no name and no command, located at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. Should I be worried about this?

Thanks for any help.

Currently we are running IE9 in our Enterprise and utilizing admin templates through Group Policy. We are getting ready to push out IE 11. My understanding is once you install IE 11 the adm templates will be updated through the inetres file. The question
is how do I run multiple versions of IE with their respective admin templates until we are done piloting 11 and phase out 9 completely.

Hi,

Recently IE8 keeps freezing up on my computer. When I go to processes in the task manager, I have multiple instances of "iexplore.exe" running. Most of the instances appear to be trying to connect to "a96-6-188-20.deploy.akamaitechnologies.com". The specific IP Address is: 96.6.188.20.

Is this a virus, malware, etc.? I tried running malwarebytes and that came up empty.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

I found this in an old thread

"Run either process explorer or Security Task Manager to check what folder it is loading from. iexplore.exe should run only from C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe If other path then it is a malware. "

Attachment "Task Manager" shows the number of instances running.

How do I run "process explorer" or "Security Task Manager" to check what folder it is loading from?

I did a search in C: drive for iexplore.exe and found 63 items! The attachment Page1.JPG shows the first page of those found. There are 2 more pages but I didn't know if would be of any benefit to upload them.

Please see attachment "System Type" for my computer details. And Internet Explorer 11.

I don't even know if this is a problem or not but it seemed unusual to me.

I hear reject thumps and sounds like - i have to click accept before continuing. It's like it is trying to go to a site by itself but it is hidden.

Anyone noticed that IE8 runs multiple iexplore.exe in Task Manager?

And by the way did you notice IE8 behaves differently in that respect when installed on WindowsXP as opposed to Windows 7?

WindowsXP copies of iexplore can use up to 50,000K and every copy uses quite a bit of memory.

Windows 7 copies of iexplore only use about 5-15K.

While using IE8 in WindowsXP I thought I had a malware program running by it using so much memory and exhausted myself trying to run all kinds of scans to root out the offending program only to realize it was IE8 itself. When I uninstalled IE8 and went back to IE7, the behavior stopped.

Just something interesting that might save others the frantic search to root out adware. I suppose the bottom line is DO NOT USE IE8 on WinXP.

The percentage of CPU usage was largely being consumed by iexplore.exe process.  In reviewing forum results I ran ComboFix.  After ComboFix completed CPU usage is constantly cycling between 100%-30%. Also notice that I can use internet explorer successfully to bring up favorite sites or search for sites using google.  Would you be able to look at ComboFix log file to let me know where to go from here?

Good morning,
Fo the last few days, Internet explorer stops working all of the time. When this happens, no desktop icons work. Sometimes, I can use task manager to shut down instances of iexplore.exe*32 and it works again for a while. Sometimes, I am not allowed to close the instances with task manager as it says operation denied.

Malwarebytes returns 0 issues. I tried MS safety scanner and that also found nothing.

I assume there is a virus or trojan at work here but I really don't know what else to do.

Thanks!
Paul

I recently noted that browsing to a site took forever. I realized that my task manager had multiple iexplore.exe running (more than 10). After killing all the iexplore.exe procs, I was able to browse to sites normally. However, I started noticing that something triggers new iexplore.exe procs (i am thinking one per hour). I thought, i would give IE a "break" and started using firefox and noticed exact same thing, multiple firefox.exe (when i installed firefox, i made it my default browser). I am thinking this is not a browser issue, but some bad app trying to connect using whatever default browser. Also interesting to note is that I don't see any browser windows open, just running processes. I had been running fiddler to see see a high level traffic, but it failed to capture anything that stood out.

Just recently I've noticed that my computer would run slowly while playing games. When I looked up the processes in task manager I noticed several processes running as an eight random letter .exe with the description of Google Chrome. I don't have Chrome installed on my computer. I'm able to find out where the file is located at and it's alway in one of the folders in my AppData\LocalLow files. I've found that if I stop all the processes it always starts up more. If I'm fast enough I can stop all the processes and then quickly delete the exe file in the folder and usually stops the processes from restarting. But I have to do that everytime I power up my computer. I have Norton but when I scan the exe file it tells me it's safe.......

My computer is running pretty slow lately and I've been getting alot of virus attacks by: "Downloader" and "Infoseeker". My antivirus blocks them out and gets rid of them each time, but the computer is still really lagging. The only steps I've taken was to download all the updates available for my anti-virus program, and attempt to run a full-system scan with Norton anti-virus but it always freezes once it hits "719" of the files it's scanned. Can anyony give me a hand to get to the root of the problem?

I noticed recently when browsing through my system's task manager that multiple instances of iexplore.exe are running - even when I have not opened any internet explorer windows. Every 5-10 minutes, a new iexplore.exe instance appears in the task manager. Even if I end the process, more and more will show up - ad infinitum until my laptop overheats and auto shutsdown. I originally posted this in the hijackthis log forum section, but they determined that it was a hardware issue rather than a malware issue (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic153073.html), so they redirected me to this forum section. I hope someone is able to diagnose and fix the problem. Thanks in advance. I really appreciate your time and support.

IE 8 BETA (although using Firefox mainly)
Tried: Fullscan with KIS 2009 (kaspersky) and Adaware.
It removed some win32trojan downloader agent mkav or so, but problem remains.

Description:
I've been experiencing multiple iexplore.exe processes running freely without my control (I use Firefox mainly). While they run, there's a weird chinese speech in the background which sounds like a commercial, it may repeat itself few times and even overrun itself in sound.

The Problem:
iexplore.exe keeps on running along with the CHINESE talking in the background.

Now, if I run full scan on my system with KIS, it wouldn't detect anything, not to mention updated Lavasoft Ad-Aware 2008...

My dad probably clicked on one of those Facebook ads and got this virus and it's not getting spotted by AV or anti-spyware because it's disguised as iexplore.exe. I've tried MalWareBytes, Adaware, SpyBot S&D, and Super AntiSpyWare and none of these helped out. This virus causes there to be multiple instances of iexplore.exe running in the background even though I only use Firefox. It also causes my search results in Google, Yahoo, and Bing to be redirected once I try to click on one of the links that is brought up. I am able to copy and paste the actual URL into the address bar and it will go to the page I need and not be redirected to some sight that has nothing to do with my search.

Hello,I am running Windows XP SP 3. I always use Chrome as my normal browser but over the last few weeks have noticed multiple iexplore.exe process running in task manager. The iexplore.exe processes are always running under the SYSTEM account. When my audio is on i can hear the IE "click" indicating a window is opened, yet no browser actually opens. I also hear audio clips of commercials, such as Slim Jim commercials and other random ads. I also receive Internet Explorer error windows asking me to either Continue or Cancel.I ran the recommended Anti-Malware software and that seem to just masque the problem. While the iexplore.exe processes are no longer visible in task manager, they are running as hidden processes, with all the same symptoms as mentioned above.If i try to actually open the IE Browser, the computer thinks for a bit, but never actually opens the window.The DDS Log contents are pasted below and i'm attaching the DDS Attach and GMER (Ark.txt) Logs.

A:Multiple instances of iexplore.exe in taskmanager, computer running slow

Hello, and welcome.

Multiple instances of iexplore.exe showing in task manager is normal for IE8, even with only one window open. It goes to how MS has divided the work in IE8.

I don't see anything to suggest malware is the cause for a slow machine, but we can so some cursory scans to help ensure that's so.

First....one of the possible causes for a slow machine would be that there's more than one AntiVirus product installed. a-squared Anti-Malware has an AntiVirus component,

Quote:




# Comprehensive PC protection against trojans, viruses, spyware, adware, worms, bots, keyloggers, rootkits and dialers.
# 2 cleaning scanners in 1:
Anti-Virus + Anti-Spyware




and you also have The Shield Deluxe 2009 Antivirus installed.

As stated in our pre-posting sticky topic...

http://www.techsupportforum.com/f50/...lp-305963.html


Quote:




If you have more than one antivirus software installed, leave only ONE and uninstall the others




While this may seem like greater protection, it can cause problems including slowdowns, system hangs or even crashes. This can happen if both AntiVirus applications attempt to access the same file at the same time. This may cause the applications to interfere with each other, or cause the system to lock up. It can also be a drain on system resources, making a machine run slower than it should.

After being infected with "Antimalware Doctor", Java 6 started opening up and going crazy; I could not update Windows Defender, or access the task manager with CTRL+ALT+DEL. I tried many things to correct it, ending with an OS repair using the Vista Home Premium DVD. This seemingly fixed the issue, but now I have multiple instances of iexplore.exe opening in the background, accompanied by pop-up ads every 20 minutes. The "Antimalware Doctor" pop-ups no longer occur, however, and I can access the task manager again.A scan with SpyBot S&D yielded a few adware fixes, none of which solved the problem. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, Windows Defender, and Microsoft Security Essentials detect no problems.I have the DDS logs as per forum request, but GMER crashes to BSoD every time I scan. Trying to start the OS in Safe Mode also yields a BSoD every time, always crashing when Windows is loading "crcdisk.sys". About ready to pull my hair out!

Good morning

Recently had some malware/spyware problems that I thought I had cleaned up but have had persistant problems ever since. Most noticibly I get constant audio adverts playing in the background at odd intervals. These appear to be linked to iexplore.exe as the audio stops when ever I end the process in task manager. However, they pop back up again in task manager a few seconds later. I rarely if ever use internet explorer but these exe files are showing up regardless.

Not sure where to begin so hope someone can help me. Thanks in advance.

Hi.

I think I'm infected with something. Actually I know I'm infected with something, I just don't know what! Have Sophos on my machine, it's up to date, have scanned with Spybot Search and destroy & Lavasoft adaware. Adaware found a Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT virus and quarantined it.

I also found a new local account on my machine which I've deleted. (It had tried to lock me out of the run registry key by adjusting the perms! Slippery little sucker!)

However now all the scanners say I'm clean but I still get popups and ie is running in task manager. even if i kill it it comes back.

Can somebody please help me?

Or maybe there's running processes that I could kill...anything to speed up this piece of junk.Some of the symptoms of this slow thing: Explorer is right now running at 17,284K, which seems to be excessive, but I can't say for sure. Also, my CPU usuage is routinely at 100%, and this hasn't always been the case. It is only 1.4 GHz, but that seems like it should be enough for everyday browsing. Anyway, here's my HJT log. If you have any help, it would be greatly appreciated.Thank you,PaulLogfile of HijackThis v1.99.1Scan saved at 11:12:17 AM, on 11/22/2006Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)Running processes:C:\windows\System32\smss.exeC:\windows\system32\winlogon.exeC:\windows\system32\services.exeC:\windows\system32\lsass.exeC:\windows\system32\svchost.exeC:\windows\System32\svchost.exeC:\windows\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ZoneLabs\vsmon.exeC:\windows\Explorer.EXEC:\PROGRA~1\Grisoft\AVGFRE~1\avgamsvr.exeC:\PROGRA~1\Grisoft\AVGFRE~1\avgupsvc.exeC:\PROGRA~1\Grisoft\AVGFRE~1\avgemc.exeC:&...

Hi,

Processor: AMD 350 E 1.60ghz
RAM: 4 GB
Anit-Virus - Trend Micro Titanium (just expired)

Everything on the computer has recently started to run extremely slowly - response time to clicks in many seconds. Biggest issues seems to be when I open Chrome or Firefox, the response time for typing is extremely slow - often I will get the "(Not Responding)" in the title bar - but it catches up with itself after a few seconds. After rebooting the computer, opening Chrome, and checking task manager, there are 13 processes running for Chrome.exe. Same thing for Firefox processes when I run that.

Hi there, I hope this isn't in the wrong board. Feel free to move it if it is!

Well basically...yesterday morning my internet was working fine. Then all of a sudden it started to lag, and took about 3-4 minutes to load up simple webpages.
Other errors include not letting me attach anything to emails, not letting me upload images to webistes (ie Photobucket), not allowing me to publish websites (ie Freewebs) and error messages coming up on instant messengers.

I have scanned my computer twice for viruses. Nothing came up. I've also restarted it, tried downloading other web browsers, as well as resetting my home hub. It doesn't work - the same errors keep coming up, and of course this is very frustrating.
Nothing else is running at the same time, literally just the internet. Everything else on the computer works fine that's not internet based!
I even emptied my temp. internet files & cleared my cookies/favourites. Still nothing.

Haha help please?

[I have tried IE, Firefox, Safari. My internet connection is via an ethernet cable and I have a BT broadband hub.]

Greetings, and welcome to TSF!

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. If you have Windows XP, the search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Answer Match 83.58%

I went to my computer today, and it froze up. On attempt to open task manager, I got the blue screen and shut it down. When I started it up again, it took close to 45 minutes to an hour for it to start up fully. Explorer.exe brought up error messages constantly, then I also got a few from adobe, WerFault, and several AVG messages. Its finally up and running, and I was able to access the internet. I'm currently running a malware scan, but I doubt it will fix very much. I'm literally afraid to restart my computer again.

Ideas?
Thanks.
 

A:Extremely slow startup, explorer.exe running slowly and crashing

Yes, first as you state don't shut it down. Leaving it run won't hurt it, just shut off your monitor when you are finished for the evening.

Second, have you done any recent updating of drivers, etc.? If I read you correctly this is the first time this has happened, right?

How to find and post your Minidump Files:

My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Minidump Folder > Minidump Files.

It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time. You can Zip up to five files per Zip; if you only have one or two you don?t need to zip them, just attach as is. Please do us a favor and don?t Zip each one individually.

I recently built a new custom computer for a friend, all top of the line parts. However, when I attempted to set up the internet connection, I had loads of trouble getting it to even connect to the internet. I finally got it to connect to the internet, but it runs extremely slow, and any type of file you try to download is just as creepily slow, to the point where it basically doesnt work. the wireless adapter being used is a 300mbps, and I'm not sure what the router is, but on another computer in the same house the internet works completely fine. Hope I can get this fixed! Thanks
 

A:Internet Running Slowly on New Computer

Make sure the antenna is secure and in a position where it is not hidden from the wireless network.

If running a Windows OS ...

Make sure you have the latest driver from the adapter manufacturer's web site.

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Also show ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

Is it legal or illegal to share internet with ISP comcast? When you share internet, can one end user's computer run really slowly? What if one computer hasn't restarted in days, will that effect slowness too?
 

A:Sharing internet and running slowly?

It's not illegal to use a router to connect multiple computers to your Comcast account. It is illegal to share your connection with non-family members, say a neighbor.

I hope someone here can help. I have a router split between 3 computers at home, and although I can access the shared files between each computer, transferring them takes a lot longer than it used to, e.g. copying and pasting a few Mbytes can take 10 minutes, and streaming music and video is very choppy and lags throughout the whole file. I use a DSL-G604T router and all my network cards are 10/100Mbps, and as I said, there was once no hassles.

I've tried some usual remedies, like restoring defaults to the router; rebooting it etc. I haven't touched the drivers to the cards and they're all up to date anyway. If I view my connection from each machine the Speed rating still tells me 100Mbps.

Is this common? What could be happening? If could be noted as well that sometimes the network seemingly works fine, and music can be played between machines with ease.

Hello all, first time on here. I arrived home today to a PC I had to hard reset do to it not coming up after hitting a key or moving the mouse. After restarting it could not access the internet, kept saying the problem was the router while the laptop worked fine. I noticed some things came on with startup that did not use to. So i tried msconfig in the run box to fix that and I cannot access that, message says that msconfig cannot be found? Anyway, here is a log and I am not sure what I am looking at so I thought I'd turn to the pros in hopes of some assistance.

Hi,
I'm not sure yet if the problem is within my computer, with the router or with my provider. The thing is, whenever I download large files, the download runs smoothly, both when downloading directly from a website with my browser (IE7) or with a download manager, and when I download from GigaNews, my Usenet provider.
When I use the internet for other purposes, browsing or Skype mainly, I often experience being unable to connect or very slow opening of pages, often terminating halfway.

I'm running a fully updated Vista, and have Norton 360 installed and running. I also regularly scan with Spybot-SD and AdAware from LavaSoft. I've also used CCleaner and AdvancedWindowsCare to try to solve the problem.

What makes me so uncertain of the problem is the beforementioned fact that downloads are running so smoothly while surfing and Skype doesn't work.

I ran gmer, but refrained from DDS per the advice given. If anything else is needed please let me know and I'll provide it.

Thanks in advance for your help.

We certainly would not be advising to run any tool in our pre-posting sticky topic if we thought it to be dangerous. I believe you are referring to an older tool - DSS (Deckard's System Scanner).

Gmer alone doesn't tell me much. Please do follow the instructions for running DDS and post the logs it produces.

So recently my internet has slowed down alot and sometimes just turns itself off completely. The problem has also been affecting xbox live (which I run through my pc) and is pretty much making games unplayable.

The strange thing is that my flatmate in the room next door can be playing on CoD:MW2 fine on his PS3 while when I try it just lags too much and similar problems with the internet in general. I have tried playing on CoD late at night when everyone else is asleep and the problem still occurred, so I believe it must be something to do with my PC. Downloads are also affected, where before they used to go at atleast 1mbps it is now struggling to get 300kbps.

My ISP is virgin, a wireless router is used throughout the house and it is netgear. For browsing the internet I use firefox. My PC was formatted last month so there isnt too much stuff on it, but it cant be that I havent installed something because it was working fine for the first few weeks after the format. I have been trying to fix it myself but I just dont know whats wrong. Xbox live sometimes tells me that the MTU setting is too low (needing to be atleast 1364) but when I checked the router settings it was on 1500 so I have no idea whats wrong.

Any suggestions? If any more info is required just ask. Thanks.

Hey guys... I really haven't had this problem before. My internet is very good - DSL. For the last 2 days, it's been running VERY slowly - it's been taking one minute or more to load every webpage. Downloads that have went 140kb/s are now going 500bytes - 2kb/s. My Google customized homepage takes 2 minutes to load I've run a spyware/adware scan, and it's still not working. I really don't recall doing anything that might have caused this.

I am running Windows XP.

I WOULD post a hijack this scan, but the download goes SO slow, and in the middle of the download I get the following error message:
---------------------
Internet Explorer cannot download hijackthis.zip from downloads.subratam.org [or other download source]

An unexpected error has occurred.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

I think I may have figured out why games are randomly minimizing to the desktop.

When it happened today, I did a CTRL+ALT+DEL and looked for unusual processes. iexplore.exe (IE6) was a background task, even though the Internet wasn't visibly on, I didn't leave the Internet on, and I was playing an offline CD-ROM based game.

So I let it run while I restarted the game, and by the time I started playing flawlessly again, iexplore.exe terminated itself on its own.

Why is it running when it's not supposed to be and how can I stop it from doing this?
 

A:iexplore.exe starting by itself or still running (even though the Internet's not on)

That may well be due to something known as a dialer trying to call out.

Hello!

Many thanks in advance for your assistance! Through some inadvertent clicking I was attacked by "Antispyware Master" a rogue antispyware program. I have deleted all the files I could find, as well as some registry entries associated with the program as suggested by another website, before I found you guys. Additionally I have ended the associated process to it and it is no longer bothering. It has not shown up after several restarts. However, I am still receiving numerous malicious popups in IE. Firefox is also not running well. I am able to click through to maybe two websites before it will completely hang up and say "waiting for xyz website". Furthermore, I am sporadically getting a windows explorer buffer underrun error that informs me that it is no longer able to continue executing and must close. It will do this periodically and the machine usually continues to operate relatively normally. Occasionally however, it will actually shut down explorer and the taskbar and desktop icons will all disappear. I am able to continue working in the windows that remain open however, but a restart is required to get explorer back.

Also, I have run scans with adaware, and spybot several times to clean the system, and have not had any new significant results recently to show improvement. I have run a couple of scans with Norton and it also comes back clean. However, sometimes after a popup window opens Norton will open an alert saying it found a virus in ... Read more

Recently I have encountered an issue of one or more extra iexplore.exe *32 in my task manager window, that use high physical memory, when I open Internet Explorer. If I close the instance of IE I originally opened, they all will close as well. However if I browse on IE for a while, eventually the extra iexplore.exe *32 (single or multiples) get so high, that pages stop loading proper.

Things I have tried to fix the issue:

- Manually close the extra iexplore.exe *32 in the Task Manager. They immediately open again, and begin rising, unless I close the original IE I opened. Then they will all close.

-I have ran various virus scans including Malwarebytes, AVG, SUPERAntiSpyware, Spybot A&D, and Kaspersky. And even ran CCleaner after a scan with both Spybot and SUPERAntiSpyware.

-The problem, although primarily effecting IE, seems to go beyond. I attempted to browse through Google Chrome, and began getting multiple instances of it opening in the Task Manager window.

- At one point during my poking around the internet for a solution, someone had a similar issue, and it was recommended that they try temporarily disabling IE Add-ons, to see if it was the source of the problem. I tried this, and it did not correct the issue. In fact, I am pretty sure it reactivated the add-ons, without me having to go back in, and turn them back on.

As stated before, the main issue with this multiple iexplore.exe *32, is that it increases the Physical Memory to a point where pages will ... Read more
