Slow system startup and very slow internet. Pages taken 5 minutes to load!!!

Q: Slow system startup and very slow internet. Pages taken 5 minutes to load!!!

My system has been very slow for the last 24 hours. Startup was slow. Programs not loading. Even the google home page wasn't loading properly.

I restarted my router and the issues seem to be better but I think there is still a malware issue in the background somewhere.

Please help!

Preferred Solution: Slow system startup and very slow internet. Pages taken 5 minutes to load!!!

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.)

A:Computer running very slow takes 20 minutes to load startup programs

do you have a windows XP installation CD matching the version on your computer? i'm not talking about any HP recovery disks.

if yes, go to start, run and type SFC / SCANNOW and press OK. insert the xp cd ito the drive when prompted.

alternatively, you can download missing DLL files from this web site:

When I open Foxfire, whatever url I use, it loads very slowly, if at all. Most of the time I get "Page not found or server unavailable," or something equivalent. Sometimes the page partially loads. This has been going on for a few days and has gotten worse. It's definitely this computer-specific since my other computer does not have this problem. I've got a Sony Vaio using Windows 7.

Hi everyone, annoying problem here--My laptop, a new HP DV7, is very fast in every aspect except for right after login when the system tray icons just appear to remain unresponsive for a full 1-2 minutes. System tray icons hang at startup:Wireless: The wireless icon has the red X through it (suggesting that the wireless hadnt loaded yet), when the wireless in fact works just fine for the entire 1-2 minutes that it is X'd out.

Power Management: The power management icon (battery), if you click on it to change settings in the first 1-2 minutes, will popup the small power management menu, but not allow you to change any options or click anything (the cursor does that vista circular thinking icon thing)

Volume: The volume seems to work the best, but still not well. It lets me change volume, but the volume popup from the tray icon gets stuck open. It will stay open and frozen until the 1-2 minutes passAfter the 1-2 minutes, everything just seems to start working fine immediately. The wireless icon switches to the correct world icon (even though it had already been working for 2 minutes).I've tried restoring my computer, running several scans - no infections whatsoever. Funny thing is, if I log off the computer and then log back on, the icons all load fine INSTANTLY. It is only after a rebootMy startup and services are very clean, I'm pretty anal about all that stuff. Those 3 icons I mentioned above are my ONLY system tray icons. I'm so sick of Vista, XP never did this ... Read more

A:System Tray Icons Slow and Unusable for 2 minutes at startup

It seems like you?ve taken all the necessary OS/software precautions, my question is: what do you have under the hood? If you?re running on limited RAM, that might be some of the hangup.

A:2nd post-Applications/internet pages slow to load HJT LOg included

The P2P programs you have installed expose you to risks because of the nature of the P2P file sharing process. File sharing/P2P programs rely on members giving and gaining unrestricted access to computers across the P2P network. This practice can make you vulnerable to data and identity theft. It also exposes you to very malicious worms and trojans. You change those risky default settings to a safer configuration but the act of downloading files from an anonymous source greatly increases your exposure to infection.

Go to add/remove programs and remove all P2P programs from your machine!

Click here to download Dr.Web CureIt and save it to your desktop.

Doubleclick the drweb-cureit.exe file and Allow to run the express scan
This will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found, click the yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it. This is only a short scan.
Once the short scan has finished, mark the drives that you want to scan.
Select all drives. A red dot shows which drives have been chosen.
Click the green arrow at the right, and the scan will start.
Click 'Yes to all' if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
When the scan has finished, look if you can click next icon next to the files found:
If so, click it and then click the next icon right below and select Move incurable as you'll see in next image:

This will move it to the %userprofile%\DoctorWeb\quarantaine-folder if it can't be cured. (this in case if... Read more

Hi all, I have had this problem for about a week now, but it has gradually worsened.
As the title states, my internet is extremely slow, and I cannot load certain content heavy pages such as fileplanet.com, gamershell.com etc.
My laptop (Xp) is wireless, I have tried direct connection to the router to no avail.
My dad's desktop (Xp) is wired, and also has the same problem.
My mum's laptop (Vista) is wireless but works absolutely fine (posting this off of her's)
I am running Zone Alarm, have done multiple scans with AVG, Ad Aware and Spybot with no improvement.
I've tried using open dns, and flushing my dns.
I've cleaned up my temp files and cache.
I should also mention, downloads are completely fine.
It's JUST the browser.
At one point I had two instances of rundll32.exe active at once, but only one seems to be running now.
In safe mode, guess what! Everything is dandy, so it must be program related, and I'm guessing a problem to do with something within Xp.
I saw on one forum someone reporting that there was an unknown process checked in msconfig and some dlls in the system32 directory with a similar name, upon deletion of them all, the problem was resolved, alas I cannot see anything like this.
After searching ALL over the internet and seeing many people with the same problem, I have found no resolution, someone please help me out!
Anything would be much appreciated, I'm losing it over this one.. hope the info is specific enough for ... Read more

step4:On the right box,right click and choose new ,then continue choose DWORD Value
step5:type into the box : MaxConnectionsPerServer
step6:Just right click on that key and choose modify,and then type the value that you want into the value box(when you type the large number then your browser faster)

For the past 2 days, I've had problems with my browser not loading web pages after about 10-11 minutes online. The internet connection itself works fine but no more new pages can be loaded. I get an error message and it says Firefox cannot load server. I've tried Avast/Ad-Aware/Spy-bot and nothing was found. I've cleaned out my cache, cookies, temp files and that did not solve the problem. I've tried switching browsers from Firefox and that only gave me 5 extra minutes before timing out. What else can I do? Is it possible that I may have a different type of virus that's not being caught?

Hi newbie here so go easy on me :wave:

My mum has a realtively newly built PC (about 2 weeks old), and has XP Professional installed along with Norton Antivirus 2003.

She is using dial-up internet with an external modem, and although her default homepage (bbc) loads straight away after that browsing becomes progressively slower and slower. Some pages do not load up at all after a while and she is forced to turn off her connection and try again. She cannot access any secure sites at all (for her internet banking and buying things). She has cleared her cache to no avail.

I have been told to see if a firewall is blocking secure ports 443, 84 and/or 8443. I'm not sure how to check that? I'm not even sure she has a firewall installed at all?

Should she try Mozilla Firefox? Should I install Norton?

I've checked her dialup internet provided (lineone/tiscali) and there appears to be no problems?

good minutes to load (the system doesn't seem busy at that time) and
ofcourse im not worried about the actual icon, it's just that i don't have
internet until the icon shows up.

This problem and also the next one im going to mention just came up
one day....(not both on the same day).

So the second problem is that almost always when i first open the start
menu after startup, it opens up ok, but when i point the mouse on the
programs menu it take about 20sec of wait until it opens and all the menus
are stuck until it's released, and i have to mention that after the first time
i open the menu, it will be ok most of the times i open the programs
menu until i reboot again, then it all starts over.

I must mention that i tried a registry cleaner a few times and it didn't change a thing, and other than that, i don't have any more ideas.

Roi.

RELEVANCY SCORE 76.8

My apps and the rest of my system run perfectly. About a week ago whenever I open a web page it is very slow to load (sometimes not at all). Before this everything was running great (I haven't changed anything since). I am using Firefox (I also tried IE and opera and it still was slow). I ran adaware and spybot and removed all infections. I also ran my registry first aid platinum on the system. I have also tried different DNS servers (I think it may have something to do with this because my internet speed test is always high 7-8 MBs. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
 

A:web pages slow to load

frequently scans either don't detect spyware/viruses or can't remove them properly.

I recommend download HiJackThis (google it) and run a scan and post your log here. Also press CTRL ALT DEL and see what your CPU usage and memory usage are when idle. But more importantly post the HiJack log.
Try this:
go to start->run
type CMD
at the prompt, type ping speedguide.net

It will ping that server 4 times, and show you an average round trip time in milliseconds. Do that a couple times for consistenty, and post what you are getting here.
But seeing as the rest of your system runs fine, it may be some settings you may have changed inadvertantly.

I have a computer that is Windows XP SP2 and IE is slow to load pages and doesn't completely load them all the time. This started when I was having problems with Norton so I removed it and installed AVG. I upgraded from IE 6 to 7 and it didn't help...the only thing that helps is removing AVG. So I installed PC-Cilling...same thing. So when any anti virus is loaded the internet crawls, but once you remove anti virus it flies. Could there be a reminent of Norton causing this? Help!

Hi,
I hope you can help me.
I usually use Firefox but have recently started a new job which uses an online tool which has to be used in IE7.
I need to look at numerous websites and speed is of the essence but it's taking anything up to 30 seconds (occasionally more) for each site to load...not fast enough for my needs. I have Comodo Firewall (updated) and newly installed Avast (also updated). Have done disk clean up, disk defrag, cleared temp files.
Is there any way to speed it up as I may lose my job if I can't work fast enough?
Any help very much appreciated.

A:IE7 very very slow to load pages

A few ideas

My first suggestion would be to disable any and all "Add Ons" to see if they are intercepting your requests.

In IE7, under Tools, "Manage Add Ons" and disable everything. Close and reopen IE, then see if anything improves.

I'd also take a good hard look at your Comodo Firewall. It is probably conflicting with the Windows firewall.

A:What Causes Pages To Load Slow?

Starting about 4 days ago, I had problems with web pages not loading at all, and others working but whole computer seems slow. My recent software installs were gotomypc and the latest Windows Live Messenger. Had no problems for at least a couple days after the gotomypc load and it worked great. The problems did come closer to right after the Windows Live MEssenger, but I don't know if that was the cause. I did a system restore to about a week ago (prior to both of those loads) without any luck.

I installed, updated and ran spybot with no findings, AVG same result, successfully flushed the DNS REsolver cache, emptied recylce bin, deleted personal data from Firefox.

I run Firefox (which was also recently updated), but the problem also exists on IE. I was baout to say that my CPU Usage was running less than 15%, because I was watching while I was having many of the problems, but not I look at it whileI am typing this and it is bouncing between 60-100%, with firefox between 5-25%, wmiprvse.exe at 13-25%, avgnsx.exe at 38%

Any help would be appreciated.

So, here's the deal....my PC was down for a little over 2 months and recently got it back up and running. Only problem was that the video card became unseated...one firm push and poof, it was back on. Well, after getting back online and all, of course i had a million updates to do...McAfee, Windows, etc etc... Well, during one of the updates, I now have IE7, no biggie there, except that it is loading slower than frozen snot when i try to go online.
Once online, it is a little more sluggish than it used to be, but not too bad.... tolerable, sort of. I cleaned a lot of junk out of the computer, as recommended in your slow computer forum, yet no avail. I have a high speed connection thru comcast via the motorola SB5101...(which was not the one that I was connecting thru before this computer went on the fritz...). Hate the cable guys.... when he switched my modem, he didn't leave me the disc, so of course, I had a field day trying to find the driver.... amazing how stupid one feels when they find what they are looking for in the spot they knew they should have checked first....lol.

Web Pages Load Slow

I donít know how long I have had the problem with pages loading slow for both of my browsers. It probably has been 6 months. I have tried a number of things and nothing seems to work. What I have done is listed below.

1. Firefox takes at least 1 minute to open at start up.
2. Internet Explorer takes 1 minute to load at startup
3. Pages seem to take 2 minutes or more to load

What steps have I taken?

1. Changed AVG Free to Charter Security Suite with F-Secure.
Charter Security Suite Online Scan found 4 iexplorer.exe files that AVG Free didnít catch.
2. Ran CCleaner and the registry cleaner in CCleaner.
3. Ran PC Matic at PC Pitsop. It found a lot of things wrong including Registry Errors. I didnít purchase it and run the fixes.
4. Ran a scan with Charter Security Suite. It didnít find any viruses or spyware.
5. I have read a lot of sites about browser is slow, pages loading slow, improving Firefox speed and optimizing Firefox. I did change a few settings in Firefox, but that hasnít changed anything.
6. Disabled Extensions and Plug-ins in Firefox except for Java and Shockwave.
