Preferred Solution: Computer slow.. Browsing pretty slow.. browser loads lagging.. help me pls

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi there,my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.Before we move on, please read the following points carefully. First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding. Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one. If you have any problems while following my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem. Do not run any other scans without instruction or add/remove software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me. Post all logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts. If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed. Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean. My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.    Scan with FRST in normal modePlease download Farbar's Recovery Scan Tool to your desktop: FRST 32bit or FRST 64bit (If not sure: Start --> Computer (right click) --> properties)Run FRST. Don´t change one of the checkboxes and hit Scan. Logfiles are created on your desktop. Poste the FRST.txt and (after the first scan only!) the Addition.txt.    Scan with TDSS-KillerPlease read and follow these instructions carefully. We do not want it to fix anything yet (if found), we need to see a report first.Download TDSSKiller.zip and extract to your desktopExecute TDSSKiller.exe by doubleclicking on it.
Press Start Scan
If Malicious objects are found, do NOT select Copy to quarantine. Change the action to Skip, and save the log.
Once complete, a log will be produced at the root drive which is typically C:\ ,for example, C:\TDSSKiller.<version_date_time>log.txtPlease post the contents of that log in your next reply.

So http://imgur.com loads extremely slow on my home network. It loads on my laptop with any other network and works great on my phone as long as I'm not connected to my wifi. Changing browsers or resetting my wifi has not helped. Something on my home network is the issue. What should I look for? Thanks

I've had my computer for about 3 years, a Dell Dimension 4700,Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 3. Lately it's been running a lot slower than it used to. I can't seem to figure out what's causing my computer to be slow. My fan inside my tower has been louder and my tower has been making louder noises. When opening "My Computer" it takes about 2 minute to load, and Microsoft Word freezes more often now.

My Internet browsing speeds are painfully slow, and a lot of the time not connecting at all.

I’ve run a speed test. (2MB down 500kb up) – Fine
I’ve scanned for viruses and spyware numerous times – Nothing
I use a wireless connection.
I use Panda security software + firewall
I used tracert to check ping. Half the ping were quick (between 2ms to 20ms) but half timed-out?!

I used the Windows wireless diagnostic check.

I am running Win7 Home , 16G ram, i7
I constantly maintain (or try to) maintin a clean system, using crapcleaner daily and various AVs (Avira) and MalewareBytes.
 
However, recently, all of my browsers run extremely slow on page loading (well, a few seconds on the blue circle).. sometimes freezing a minute or two and/or never loading destination page. I use Waterfox 43.04 and explorer 11.09. I have also tested waterfox with addons disabled .. and same problem.
 
Everything appears clean though, and the only recent software I have been running that is new is Netgear USB control center.
 
I hope someone can walk me through a more thorough inspection to try to solve this.

I hope this is the proper forum to post my problem... it's the closest topic..

I've had this problem for about a week now and can't figure it out. I can't even figure out where to start looking.

I have one of three web sites, which I pay hosting services for by the same host, that loads very slowly. After loading, logging in, clicking links, and anything that loads new content in the browser window takes a long time... maybe 30-45 seconds. If a link brings up a new window, the new window takes forever to load the contents. This doesn't happen on my other two separately domained sites. Beyond my hosted sites, this doesn't happen on any other web site I go to. Again, this also didn't start happening until about a week ago. I have done traceroute comparisons among the 3 sites with little to no difference in routes or delays.

Users of my site report no noticeable slowness so I guess it is just me. So I thought my PC, browser, or network/router somehow might be suspect even though it happens on only one site. Of 2 PCs (one running XP, the other Win2K) and a laptop (XP) in the house, they all respond the same way. I've used both MSIE and Firefox with identical results. I've deleted cache files and all that. I can't imagine my router, internet connection/ISP, or firewall causing it if it happens to only 1 web destination. If iin fact it is my ISP filtering my one site for whatever reason and slowing it down, I don't know what to ask them.

Previous thread - Please read the responses so you know what I've done so far!
 
I have followed the Preparation Guide, but still decided to open a thread.
 
My browser, Google Chrome, has the need to..
- Freeze for no apparent reason, taking it about 5-10 seconds before closing a tab
- Loading (sometimes) the sites I enter very slowly.
- Radio stations getting interruptions at times
- Sounds continuing (Youtube, Twitch) for a short duration after going back to previous location on the website. 
 
My laptop was bought about 3 years ago. It's getting old, but it still performs well for it's age. I have never suffered these problems until recently. I do not know what is wrong.

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

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

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

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

The System configuration is as follows:

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

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

Hi
Yesterday I noticed my browser (Internet Explorer 8) Started to re-direct my Google searches. It also seemed to be really slow returning results. So I ran Malware byte and it reported ?HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.fsharproj (Trojan.BHO) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.? Also McAfee found something a(I dont remember) Also said it was cleaned.
I thought I was good, but I wasn?t. I was told to restore the PC to an older state using System restore. I did this to a restore point from two weeks ago, and then was told I should not have done that and now I?m really messed up.
I would like to see if I?m okay now, I?m concerned that there might be some kind of key stroke tracker and I'm afraid to type anything, Also browsing is very very slow.

I have been having some problems with programs starting lately, either they'll freeze up or open slow. I believe it might have to do with all the stuff that comes preinstalled on Vaios seens how i just did a factory restore.
Anyways im posting on here to see if anyone can kinda give me a run down on what i can remove. I removed most of the stuff i knew i could but some of the stuff im still pretty iffy about and just need a second (hopefully a little more expert-ish) opinion.

Over the past week I've been in the process of reinstalling programs to my computer after having to reinstall WindowsXP. Up until this past Friday everything was running smoothly, and then in the blink of an eye trying to browse web pages has become a frustrating act taking much longer than it should. When running other applications not involving going online, my computer runs completely fine. I suspect spyware is the cause because when I first began reinstalling programs I inadvertantly came across a web page that I know hit me with a load of spyware...all this happening before I reloaded my firewall and antivirus software. Eventually I installed these programs and cleaned out my computer to the point where I could work without worrying about spyware cropping up. I still suspect remnants of spyware remain on my computer which has now caused my browsing online to become a near impossibility. I am only able to ask for your assistance on this web site while running my computer in safe mode.

I am using Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit, Firefox and Chrome. This computer acts as a server and has MS SQL Server 2008 setup on it. I normally just use MS Security Essentials and Windows Firewall for security. Approximately one month ago after participating in an short online class a variant of the ?Win 7 2012 Security? scareware showed up and was doing it?s thing. I found a guide on Bleeping Computer to get rid of it using rkill.exe and Malwarebytes to get rid of it and it seems to work. Unfortunately I unwittingly selected to try Malwarebytes 30 day trial so about 3 days ago it got uninstalled from this computer. Two days ago while browsing Reddit suddenly up pops ?Win 7 2012 Security? warnings along with problems in browser connectivity. Having had this before I take the same steps again which seems to rid me of ?Win 7 2012 Security?. However when Malwarebytes is running MS Security Essentials (yes I neglected to turn it off) finds more infections. In fact almost every time Malwarebytes runs MSE finds something new.

Some examples are: Alureon.TK, vdf.exe, Kwrd.dll, PUP.BitMiner, Sirefef.J

I let MSE get rid of them and Mal fins a few also. My internet connection seems to get worse as browser performance decreases however if I run a speed check the DSL connection is fine. Yesterday (the 8th) I made sure everything was up to date (java, flash, windows) and got rid of everything that was extraneous to speed up scans.

Hi all!
 
I'm having trouble trying to install any Antivirus, I run the setup and nothing happens. (Originally Avast 5 was installed but not running, can't update it either so I uninstalled it)

After several days I managed to install Avira but it's in offline state - can't connect to update definitions.
Internet browsing it's too slow in any browser (I'm writing this from another computer right now because in the infected one it's impossible)
 
I must say that I cleaned several virus and malware just before this happens, because I was not able to execute any .exe file and when browsing and trying to load any AV site, the browser redirects me to ad pages. (This is now resolved)
 
I already ran Malwarebytes and it removed a bunch of malware related stuff.
I also ran AdwCleaner, TDSSKiller and Hitman Pro. If needed I can attach the log files.
 
Here's my FRST log.
Thanks!!

So, hello. I ruled out malware pretty early on, but I'm not an experienced expert, so I figured I'd give it another shot. I really have no clue what the problem is. 
 
Running a Toshiba Satellite L755D laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium. Everything is out of the box except for a less-than-year-old 1 TB HDD.
 
Symptoms:
- Computer takes a while to startup once Windows takes over.  It takes maybe twice as long to get to the desktop than it used to, and then it may take a few minutes for me to actually be able to do anything.
- Once it has started, applications tend to be sluggish, unresponsive, or even crash (only one to do so is Windows Explorer. Twice.). Typing is at normal speed, doesn't seem affected. 
- After startup, it's not always consistent. Like, as I type this, for instance, it seems okay. 
 
Troubleshooting:
- Malwarebytes, Avast, MSE, Spybot, and AdwCleaner all returned nothing malicious. I ran Rkill before hand. Only active anti-malware is Avast. I use the other two for second opinions.
- HDD is not fragmented, and dskchk returned nothing.
- sfc /scannow did pick up on a couple of things, but the computer was still slow upon reboot. 
- Nothing unusual hogging system resources.
- Computer is not overheating
- I run CCleaner fairly often, and there is still a good ~300GB left on my HDD. 
- I've tried disabling unessential things that run on startup. Nothing changed.
- I've tried system restore. After the restore, I get th... Read more

I have DSL, but web browsing's been like really, really bad dial-up lately. I changed some settings(lowered disk space for TIF/made it check for newer versions of the page every visit) in IE last week, and thing were back to normal. Even though I usually use Firefox, changing some IE settings made everything(IE/Firefox/OE) much faster. It's now very sluggish again.

According to my ISP people, my connection is fine. Bandwith is fine. I believe it, since when I download/save a large file, the transfer rate is fine. Web browsing, though, is very sluggish. My OE takes a long time also when checking/sending mail. I've run virus(McAfee), spyware(Spybot and Adaware), and CWShredder scans. It seems like my comp is clean.

In windows browser, I noticed that my TIF was like 80MB even when it didn't show anything. So I followed instuctions(Microsoft's, I think) to basically create a new folder, set it as the TIF, delete the old one, remake a new TIF, etc. It's still slow. What else can I do to fix this problem? Would reinstalling IE6 do anything? Can somebody help me?

Thanks.

Hi,

My computer seems to be running slow! So annoying, especially lagging when i'm watching clips or editing. I actually have 1GB of RAM so i'm just wondering if i'm running too many programs because surely that should be sufficient for what i do. I usually fill up my HD actually, but even after getting the space back it still seems slower then it should be. I do a lot of movie editorial work so i need the space!

Hello im having problems making my computer run at normal speed. It has been running slow for awhile now but recently VERY SLOW. It takes forever to boot up and any program I open also takes an eternity. Once the program is running it works fine.
I have scanned the computer w/ norton, malwarebytes anti-malware and spybot.
I removed all the harmful files. Spybot seemed to make it run slower.
In the task manager the CPU usage is at 100%. There are about 80 processes when I boot up the system.(seems like a lot)
I uninstalled a bunch of programs I never use to free up some more space and I also tried restoring it to an earlier date.
I gave it the newest updates for windows.
I deleted all the programs I dont need from the start up.
Today I tried running Malwarebytes' anti-malware today and it TIMED OUT!! taskmanager said program was unresponsive.
I'm not sure where to go from here. Do I have to wipe my hard drive??? Please help!!! It is a Sony VAIO laptop.

A:My slow lagging computer

<<I removed all the harmful files.>>

That seems to always be a presumption...by those who get infected. Of course, it's not necessarily true but users seem to like to say/believe it.

I guess that I have to ask...was your system infected?

Any error messages during this troubled period?

I'm not sure what's been happening lately, but my laptop has been running kind of laggy and slow. My specs are as follows:

Windows XP SP2
Intel Pentium M
1.60Ghz
1.12GB RAM
30GB HD (19.1GB Free)
Software: Avast! AV, Comodo Firewall

I initially thought that my computer would only slow after I started Trillian, but I tested this (by not starting Trillian), and it seems it will still slow a few minutes after a restart. Restarting my laptop seems to solve this problem temporarily.

I have run the following programs to test out any problems, but they all come back clean:

Chkdsk
Defrag
Avast virus scan
Spybot S&D
Lavasoft Ad-Aware

Keeping it in safe mode (I'm posting in Safe Mode w/ Networking right now) seems to also keep the problem at bay.

Help?

Thanks!

Hello,

I am trying to help out my mother on her computer and considering you guys helped me out on mine, I figured I should come back.

Anyways, the problem with this computer is it has a lot of junk files, folders and things on it, yet I am not sure which files and folders are needed and which are not. Along with that problem, we have the bad lag. Sometimes it takes quite a few minutes to load Windows itself as well as programs.

My mother runs a eBay business and enjoys downloading games and music, so I know that is some cause of the slowing down of her computer.

Attatched is a Hijack This log.

Thank you in advance.

Hi, looking to clean up a co-worker's computer, which is running pretty slow. Takes a while to start up, then lags when shifting between programs. I figure there's likely some malware on it. Although I did just run Malwarebytes, and it didn't turn anything up.
Been a while since I've used one of these forums, but I remember years ago coming to forums and running a checker on my computer, submitting the log back to the forum, and being advised on what to get rid of. Does this forum work similarly?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Welcome to the Tech Support Guy malware removal forum.
I'm iMacg3 and will be helping you.

Please keep the following information in mind before we begin:

Do not run any fixes or tools on your system unless I request that you do so.
Please read all instructions carefully, and complete them in the order listed.
If your computer seems to start working normally, please don't abandon the topic. Just because your computer doesn't seem to have a problem doesn't mean that it isn't infected.
If you have pirated or illegal software on your computer, uninstall it now before proceeding.
If you have questions about anything, please ask.
--------------------
Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system, download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

Right-click FRST/FRST64 and select Run as administrator. (Windows XP users double-click on the file).
If you receive a SmartScreen pop-up, click More Info, then Run Anyway.
When the tool opens, click Yes to the disclaimer.
Press the Scan button.
When finished, two log files will pop up - FRST.txt and Addition.txt.
Copy and paste the contents of FRST.txt and Addition.txt into your next reply.

Note - FRST.txt and Addition.txt are saved to the same location as FRST/FRST64.

Hi there,my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.Before we move on, please read the following points carefully. First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding. Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one. If you have any problems while following my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem. Do not run any other scans without instruction or add/remove software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me. Post all logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts. If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed. Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean. My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.   Scan with TDSS-KillerPlease read and follow these instructions carefully.

Hi,

Below is the HJT Log, could someone please review this. Most of the downloaded programs (O16) on my log are not showing up on my add/remove list. The only program that I still use is Ofoto. If they are not showing up on my add/remove list, then how can I remove these from my computer?

Also, on my add/remove list there is a "BUM" ... I'm not sure what this is and have not seen it on there before. Could someone tell me what this is and if I should remove it?

My computer runs extreme slow and I end up rebooting two/three times an hour. Sometimes there is a lag every few minutes. Most of the time when I reboot my computer I lose my internet connection and need to unplug my cable modem and if that doesn't work, then I reboot again till I get my connection back.

If there is additional information needed, please let me know.

Thank you for your help.
Lisa

Hello

My computer has been running very slow lately and lagging when i I am watching videos on youtube. I looked at the programs I'm running in task manager and saw that something called svchost.exe has been taking up the most memory (40000 or so) when everyhting else is around 20000. Anyways, I ran a DDS scan and a GMER scan. But while running the GMER scan, I got a BSOD saying that a file "pxpdakod.sys" was the problem. Here is my DDS scan:
