Preferred Solution: Slow computer (Slow internet browsing, loading pages, slow start up etc.)

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I share a wireless router with 4 other people. All of a sudden my laptop internet speed took an extreme downturn. And it is only my laptop that has been affected, everyone elses is working at the same speed.
So usually if I ran a speedtest the download speed would sit at around 700kbp/s. Now it's barely at 80kbp/s.
The upload speed is sitting at 749kbp/s so it's pretty normal.
I've restarted my computer with no luck.
I've deleted all my cookies and temporary internet files with no luck.
I ran a virus scan (I use AVG Anti-Virus); it came up with corrupted executable file (Quicktime) so I removed that. This hasn't helped the problem.

I really don't want to have to pay heaps of money for a technician to come to my house and try and fix it. It's weird that it happened all of a sudden but I need to get it fixed.
Any ideas or suggestions? They would be MUCH appreciated as it is a very frustrating problem!
 

A:Suddenly EXTREMELY slow internet browsing and loading of web pages

Have you connected with a wired connection to the router to see if this is a wireless issue, or some other problem?

For wireless connection issues, I'd like to see this.

Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework. For machines with no Internet connection, download this NET Framework 3.5 Full Package on another machine and transfer it with removable media to the problem machine.
To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.


With a wired connection, boot in Safe Mode with Networking and run this PingTest and also this SpeedTest and post the link to the results here.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Seems that my computer has good days and bad. Somedays it is extremely slow while online (but laptop connected to same network is fast). I don't know if the updates from Windows has anything to do with it, but it seems that computer slows more and more everytime an update is installed. I'm not sure if this is what you need, but here is my HijackThis log:

Hi folks,

I'm experiencing slower than normal internet browsing lately. I'm running Windows XP-Home Edition (version 2002, service pack 2) and Internet Explorer version 7.0 through a 5 meg cable modem/USB connection. It has gotten progressively slower over the past several weeks. I'm not very good at troubleshooting these type problems but I'll describe what I've tried:

1. Dumped all temporary internet files, history files, cookies, etc. under Internet Explorer> Tools > Internet Options> Browsing History> Delete All.
2. Ran "Disc Cleanup" under Windows> System Tools.
3. Defragmented C drive.
4. Scanned all drives with my security suite software (F-Secure) provided by my ISP (Charter).
5. Downloaded the freeware program "SuperAntiSpyware" and ran a complete scan. It found 7 adware programs and I let it quarantine them.
6. Called my ISP and was told that my connection looked good and my speed was within range.

None of these actions has helped and I'm stuck! This is very aggravating. Can anyone offer any suggestions on possible solutions to my problem. Please remember that I'm not very tech savvy so you might have to describe potential fixes in terms I will be able to comprehend. I will appreciate any offers of help .

Thanks for your time and patience, Mike Hannah

My computer has been slightly slower than usual...and when checking the McAfee site it stated that the 6 trojans found were that of a low threat....I'm just double checking that it didn't miss anything because my computer's been kinda slower on loading internet pages since the scan. I am aware Mcafee is not the best tool for scanning but my folks paid for my computer and the program came with it. I have to keep it til it expires. Also any advice for site advisor's that tell you which sites have viruses? Mcafee's is useless.

Hey guys, I just got a new Sony VAIO NS Series yesterday and I think it is satisfactory so far EXCEPT for the fact that the web pages load so slowly. For example, the pages on this website requires that I press refresh or press "enter" on the web address bar a few times for the page to load. How can this be? This computer is new! Could it just be the internet coincidentially being slow? Is it the computer's problem and should I be concerned? Thanks!

My computer can be found here along with the specs: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=9370165&type=product&id=1218093001336

This is my first time posting a question on bleeping computer. We are so thankful that you are out there to help us and not rip us off. I think my computer is infected. My desktop starts up very slowly, my internet connection is slow (it's slow in pulling up websites and some never come up). I'm getting lots of pop ups (even though pop up blocker is enabled). When I go to open the control panel, a flashlight pops up as if it is looking for it (it eventually does open but it takes a while). I had a problem at one time with a lot of POS.TMP files and followed advice from posts on this site to get rid of them. Well, my current problems started when a friend downloaded a music program. I believe it was called Soundman. When I noticed the computer acting funny, I went into the control panel and deleted it along with some other programs I found (PPC Booster, P2P Max, Ron Tool Adsoftinc, Wyzo, Eco Bar). Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Okay, here I am again. I've already posted regarding this problem, but I thought I had it fixed when I restored my computer to factory settings. No such luck, the problem has returned. This time I will be more specific about what is going on. I can not access any microsoft web pages, I can not update, I can't access my hotmail account, can't use messenger (kids are going crazy without it). I have had norton installed and ran a scan, no problems detected. Now i uninstalled it. Please let me know what to do now. I personally think it has something to do with Messenger not being compatible with Vista, so for now I've uninstalled Messenger also. What are some good free virus and spyware programs that I can run? Here is my current Hijack log.

My McAfee subscription expired and I have now loaded AVG Anti-Spyware and ZoneAlarm. Since then my PC has been a bit temperamental (sometimes slow to load web pages or not loading them at all). Could you advise if there are any problems. From time to time the PC will crash altogether and I have to switch the power off/on to get it re-started. I have recently de-fragged as well, but no real improvement in performance.
Around the same time I was trying to download IE7 and it kept failing. The Window help suggested de-activating all Firewalls (I also have SpySweeper) but it still did not complete IE7 download. I have not bothered trying anymore but wondered if something hasd got through while I had no Firewall.

I have posted aHiJack This scan in the relevant forum and Old Timer suggested posted the questin with yourselves as he was not able to see anything wrong.

I hope you can help.

A:Slow Running/internet Pages Not Loading

Hi there,

I use AVG and Zonealarm too, but don't experience what you are. Having said that that there could be glitched between the two that are preventing you from accessing the web.

In the meantime I would personally get hold of the latest updates for AVG, ZoneAlarm and any other spyware/adaware program, disconnect from the internet (unplug your modem/router) uninstall your current defences (AVG, ZoneAlarm etc), then add your firewall (ZoneAlarm) following the on-screen instructions then add your spyware/adware/anti-virus software and do a full system scan.

Forget about IE7, stick to IE6 (reinstall that too).

Hope that helps

Hello BC,
I have a funny but serious malware problem. When watching Jersey Shore full episodes, usually the ads played in the player- But then on one of the episodes, when the video player went to advertisement, an advertisement "popped up" blackening the whole screen. I thought this was unusual since the ads usually had been playing embedded within the player. I (mistakenly) clicked the "X" to get out of it. Following this, an ad began to play within the player per usual.

After the embedded advertisement began to play, I immediately got malware on my computer. My bottom-left icons began to change, and my antivirus appeared hijacked because a message appearing from avast popped up alerting me that I had been infected with a "worm". I knew immediately that I had been infected with something, and that the message was originating from the 'worm'.

I immediately shut down my computer and restarted in safemode. I attempted to perform an avast virus scan and windows defender scan-nothing. I then restored my computer back to a restore point created a few days prior using the System Restore function. I then started up in safe mode and attempted to Uninstall the Firefox browser from which I had acquired the virus. Firefox would not uninstall itself from Add or Remove Programs so later on I manually deleted (most?) of the firefox files.

Now none of the virus scans performed online or downloaded have detected a thing. Advanced System Car... Read more

Lately, my computer has been very, very slow, with some pages just not opening at all. I fear I may have come across some sort of bug, amongst other things. Yesterday, while typing, the letters were entering the browser at a snail's pace, and some were just changing--on their own! Some of my online games (Text Twist in particular) just won't load at all, as happens with some web sites. I also have something on my desktop that I just can't delete--and I've tried everything. Watching videos is just awful because it's stop-and-go--if they ever load at all. I'd also like to know what I can remove or delete from my desktop (I already have too many items in my "start" menu", so I can't put them there). I try to use disk cleanup as much as possible, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. I'd also like to know how to add memory to my computer, as it seems I don't have much. Just before my transition from Comcast to Verizon, my computer went through hell, which may or may not have been the cause as It's worse now than before. Thank you for your help.

My internet started to become slow out of no where and I didn't mess with my router/modem or any computer settings so I'm guessing it's a hardware problem. Pages take a while to load, some don't load (Unable to connect to webpage message), or sometimes they won't load completely. I've had this happen 3 times over the past years, even with different routers/modems/ISP's, my internet would be working normally for a few months and then it'd dramatically get slower. I've always thought it was my router causing the problems, potentially screwing up and degrading my modem's performance. It must be that Netgear routers are awful, as that's the only brand of routers I've had over the years.

I'm on my desktop, and have my modem connected to my router. I'm connected to the internet via cable since my desktop doesn't have WiFi.
Got 58mb/s download speed and 12mb/s upload speed on speedtest. Any ideas on how to fix the problem?

Edit: I have the same problem with every browser if you're wondering.

Ok I just got my virus/spyware situation resolved earlier today but now my internet connection is really sluggish. I took the recommendations given by greynight in the anti-spyware tutorial and downloaded and installed all the things listed there. However now my interent is hardly running. I'm not sure what to do. I have dsl and my interent is running as though it's on a very bad dial up connection at best. This is just terrible.

I'm not sure where I should be posting this. I chose here because I feel these problems are a result of programs I may have downloaded after coming to this part of the forum.

Please help or direct me to the appropriate area.

Thank you,

Download HiJackThis - this program will help determine if there's any malware on your computer.

1. Double-click on the file you just downloaded.

2. Click on the "Unzip" button to install the newer version.

3. It will by default install to the directory - C:\Program Files\HiJackThis\

4. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose - Do a system scan and save a logfile.

5. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit [Scan] and then click on Save log.

6. Post the HiJackThis.log file

Internet Explorer constantly giving not responding message.  Pages are slow to load, some never load.  Constantly getting Not Responding Message and Internet Explorer becomes completely unresponsive.  This problem just seemed to begin several days ago. 
 
Steps that I have taken to help problem: 
 Updated MalwareBytes and ran scan.  I also ran MalwareBytes in Safe Mode.  Scans showed nothing found.
Ran scan on Microsoft Essentials. Scans show nothing.
Made sure all Windows Updates are up to date (I have windows firewall turned on and have automatic updates turned on)
I have run a scandisk/checkdisk.  I believe it said it repaired one bad sector
I also have AFT Cleaner installed, which I run about once a week
I have no other malware or virus protection installed other than MalwareBytes and Microsoft Essentials.
Computer analyzed and said I did not need to defragment
Only using 25-30% if harddrive
Checked with Internet provider.  They said we are having no problems in my location area.
 
The only program I have installed in the last several months is Skype
 
Any suggestions.
 
 

A:Internet Explorer Slow, not loading pages, not responding

Hi
 
How other browsers work ?. My personal choice is chrome and it works fine for me.Your IE version is 7 and it is fairly outdated. Latest is IE10 but Microsoft didn't even released IE 9 for XP. Sticking with an outdated browser is a security risk. Also a large number of websites require at least IE 8 or higher. I strongly recommend consider using an alternative browser or at least upgrade the Internet explorer version to 8.

hello, i would really appreciate it if someone could help me with a problem ive been having recently with my internet as i have been signing up to forums and posting for weeks now but nobody has given me a solution

My hijackthis log, rootlog, and avg scan can be found here: http://www.bullguard.com/forum/10/Im-not-sure-why---HELP-_48005.html

Purchased a Compaq V6210 with Vista Home Premium. Works great, but decided to get a different notebook and my sister will get this one.

Purchased a Gateway with Vista Home Premium. OK notebook, but 4200 rpm HD was too slow AND it took literally 1-2 minutes to load web pages (via wireless) that the Compaq loads in 2-3 seconds (or less).

Don't know what caused this and didn't care because I was returning it anyway.

Purchased a Toshiba Satellite A135-S4467 (Intel Core Duo T5200, 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM) with Vista Home Premium. Great notebook, but has the same slower than dialup web-surfing characteristics of the Gateway. Don't have a clue what the most likely cause of this is. Can't do a clean re-install because none of the manufacturers include the Vista install disk, just the lame restore CD (except the Gateway, got to hand it to them there, they included a restore disk and a true Vista install disk).

Perhaps there is a simple fix for this? Someone told me to remove Toshiba's Config Free. Tried that and it didn't help. Any ideas?

A couple of weeks ago pages started to load very slowly on my desktop when using Firefox. I suspected my Belkin wireless adaptor as my laptop was working fine with Firefox and the same BT home hub,and same security (Comodo Firewall and Avast). Having bought a new wireless adaptor I still have the same problem. The internet connection signal is good and the Avast boot time scan shows clear. I suspect, therefore, this may be a Vista issue. Any ideas/suggestions would be gratefully received.
 

A:Internet Connection good but pages slow loading

Disable your Windows firewall if it is enabled and see what that does to your connection speed. Try disabling the Comodo as well.

I've been getting a problem utilizing Firefox and even IE (which I prefer not to use). Basically, pages have been loading pretty slow recently. At first I thought it wasn't that unusual, but when playing games online (WoW specifically), I'm not getting any high ping or latency issues. I also don't get any slow down on downloads, which is puzzling me. I only have problems just going on the internet.

There are also moments when I have to re-enter an internet address multiple times. For example, if I were to enter "gmail.com" on the address bar, it won't load, but still say "Done" at the bottom as if it loaded a web page or something. I'm afraid I might have some keylogger or some malicious content. Should I start changing passwords for e-mail services and anything else that requires a password?

I tried running Ad-aware, Spybot, and Symantec to clear up any issues, but I still have the same problem.

You can test the HDD using the drive manufacturers disk tools (available from the drive manufacturers website). Run the short and long test. That will verify the drive is good (or bad). Any errors on either test and the drive is likely faulty.

With that said, drive usage/access in and or itself does not indicate a problem.

Hello,

My name is Aman and I'm trying to fix my parents CPU. They have a tendency to download a lot of crap without first checking that the source is legit.

The CPU runs Windows 7 64 bit.

The specific issues are when Chrome or IE are being used. The browsers are always redirected to searchnu/406. I have changed the start page back to google and that works at startup, but when a new window is opened it goes back to ask.com. I have also noticed that pages are regularly not loading fully and it takes 3-4 times hitting the reload button to finally load, sometimes they don't load at all. I am also noticing that the internet connection seems slower than before (they have ATT DSL) and the cpu in general is running a bit slow.

Any help would be great.

Thanks,

The Internet did run great the first week or so, it recently did this.

Oh yea and if it means anything, In task manager under the networking tab it says Network Utilization is under 1% most of the time and other times its jumping around like crazy {ex. 17%, 2%, 3%, 14%, 8%, 1%, 16%}

Well thanks to anyone who can help!!

Please can someone take a look at my reports.

My PC has become slower in the past few months, it takes ages to start and often crashes/freezes when browsing the internet. This happens with both IE and Firefox.

I've run some of the free anti virus programmes but they've not made much difference.

Thank you.

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

I'm having trouble with pages not loading when I'm on the internet (using Netzero and Internet Explorer). It seems to be secure pages mostly (every time I want to order something online, or when I go to a company's application center and try to apply for a job.) The pages aren't just timing out and trying to refresh over and over again doesn't help.
Also, I am on my second printer (HP 3740). Granted, it's not top of the line, but I just bought it because my old one was broken (I thought) and now it is starting to have the same problems as the last one, and the problems started about a week after I bought it. It started with the printing getting faded, like the cartridge (which is brand new) was running out of ink, then it went through the motions of printing but no ink was on the paper. Next it will stop moving, even though the power light comes on. That's what the first printer did anyway.
Besides that the computer is incredibly slow. I know that NetZero isn't the fastest server, but I've been with them for about a year and these problems started about 6 months ago. That was about the time my boyfriend decided he knew everything about computers and started adding and deleting software like it was going out of style. I'm pretty sure this is all his fault but I'm not sure how to fix it now.
Please help!! I know enough about computers to get online, but that's about it.

UPDATE: Finally got Avast going on it, and it picked up mbr:cidox-e in the bootfiles, and this is apparently a high severity rootkit?

Hello and welcome to TSF.

Apologies for the late response. I don't see the Ark.txt. Did you have problem running GMER?

If you still require assistance, we would like to see the latest state of your system. So, please try getting a report from GMER with the instructions below and also post a fresh DDS log as it has been a while since you posted, and we'll take it from there.

Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here to your desktop. Double click the exe file. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent .
If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO.



Click the image to enlarge it


In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ... Sections
IAT/EAT
Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
Show All (don't miss this one)

Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and post it in reply.

**Caution**
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries
