Wanting to speed up computer... norton is so slow

Q: Wanting to speed up computer... norton is so slow

Well ever since buying (i do things legally) a heap of norton software I have been having to wait excessive lengths of time for my computer to boot. once booted things take longer to load and it is just in general slowing down daily... This is my hijackthis log. I have done some work on it already but don't know everything that is listed in it.

Preferred Solution: Wanting to speed up computer... norton is so slow

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.)

Operating system is WinXP Home on a FAT32 disk. Norton was showing a good amount of fragmentation so I went to do the Speed disk - optimize - and well it just take sooooooooooooo long!! The Drive is 35gb, this thing has been going now for about 12 hours and is not near done! It was only about 20% fragmented.

Why does Norton Speed disk take so long? Do all defrag utilities take this long?

Hi Everyone,
I have a 2GB ram Acer Aspire One AO722 computer that has been slowing down substantially. I have a huge amount of hard drive space but it seems if I store more on it it gets slower. My question to you is what is the best software out there to speed up a computer?

The Software I Currently Have (To Not Mention):
Tweaking.com Tweaker
CCleaner
ATF Cleaner

A:Best way to speed up a slow computer

Start by checking this out:

Optimize Windows 7
How many processes are running at any given time? Use the link above in addition to deciding how many processes you need running as too many will slow your rig down. I have an old laptop with only 1 GB RAM, Intel Duo Core and 55GB HDD. I usually only have 48 processes running at rest, and when I'm online, with multiple programs opened, I only use about 5% of my CPU

Tweaking things is a tricky route to take. Some can help, but many can harm. Windows 7 is pretty well tweaked out of the box so I wouldn't do to many. Try scanning for malware with; Malwarebytes or Superantispyware to see what may be holding your system up.

That's a good place to start, the members here can help further, but until you do a few of these common steps there's no need to get too in depth, as you'd be surprised how much these things can help.

A:Computer Speed Slow

Open Task Manager and check the cpu usage. If it's high, check to see which process is using the cpu. You may also want to check Event Viewer and see if Windows is reporting any hardware issues. If all of that looks normal, then we will need to know exactly what is "slow".

My computer has been running slow and crashing for almost 3 months. I have run all kinds of spyware programs but basically they just find cookies and harmless stuff. I've done scans at Trend Micro, Sophos and other websites but they never find anything. I've received email saying I have a virus and it's a reply to an email I've sent but I never sent it. Someone suggested I may have a worm that sends spam email from my AOL account and potentially is causing the antivirus software to not work properly also. I also found that Norton was disabled and so was my firewall (Norton Internet Security). The scheduled tasks weren't working and if I did a full scan it would not change the date. We did run Norton in safe mode and now the date changes but it still doesn't do scans on schedule. I'm also concerned because when I go to websites like Computer Cops or your website the computer crashes. It's like it knows I'm going to post something. Fortunately I have another computer. I've noticed that one svchost process and sometimes explorer process are using up to 97-99 CPU's. If you can help me at all I'd appreciate it.

Hello 7forums,
I recently purchased a new computer, and everything is running perfect except the download speed is very slow.
My old computer would average 1Mb d/l speed where as my new one hovers around 50-90kb. My brother is using my old computer on the same network and i got him to d/l the latest wow patch (so we were downloading from the same source) and it still averaged at 1Mb.
However when playing WoW i average anywhere between 30-60ms and my browing speed is perfect.
So to summarize:
My old computer's d/l speed is 1Mb, where as my new on is around 90kb,
After downloading from the same source the result was still the same,
Browsing speed and in-game pings are fine.

Last night we bought a brand new HP Pavillion a6838f with vista and began downloading different programs. Well we began to notice that although the internet works at a perfectly fine speed downloads go excessivly slow. I have read that Nortan antivirus is a potential cause but I was just wondering if there are any other possibilities that could be causing the problem. We recieve internet via cable. Also, plugging our previous computer in right next to us and trying to download the same program, the speed is considerably faster, noting that the second computer is using windows XP.

My download speeds are in the 11-20 KB/S range while theres are in the 400-500 range! even my old low RAM computer is getting dl speeds in that range.

Is there an easy way to fix it, such as utilizing more priority to download speeds?

Hey people! My main computer's internet has been very slow. I'm getting only 30 mbps when I should be getting 150 mbps. All of my other devices get 150 mbps speeds.

A:Very slow internet speed on my main computer

How are you connected, 802.11 "b" max is ~5.5Mbps, "a" and "g" max out at ~20 Mbps, etc. WiFi operates at the highest possible speed that both endpoints can support. For example, an 802.11g laptop connected to an 802.11n router will only work at the lower speed of "g". In other words, both devices need to support the same standard in order to operate at those speeds.

Also, are there any physical obstructions in the line of sight between devices? What's the distance between the devices? Is there any radio interference in the area?

Wikipedia: WiFi > Interference
Interference

For more details on this topic, see Electromagnetic interference at 2.4 GHz.

Wi-Fi connections can be disrupted or the internet speed lowered by having other devices in the same area. Many 2.4 GHz 802.11b and 802.11g access-points default to the same channel on initial startup, contributing to congestion on certain channels. Wi-Fi pollution, or an excessive number of access points in the area, especially on the neighboring channel, can prevent access and interfere with other devices' use of other access points, caused by overlapping channels in the 802.11g/b spectrum, as well as with decreased signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) between access points. This can become a problem in high-density areas, such as large apartment complexes or office buildings with many Wi-Fi access points.

Additionally, other devices use the 2.4 GHz band: microwave ovens, ISM ban... Read more

On my new computer the download speed (broadband) is the crawl of 0.81Mb/sec.using speedtest.net. At the time of test the computer was doing no 'work'. I noticed this slowness when downloading a driver update which was at .89Mb/sec.
Another time when downloading a program it was at .196Mb/sec. Now it is a consistent 0.81 Mbps.

At the same time of the test on three other computers all using the same tester, the same ISP, the same router, the same telephone line in the same house the speed is 2.01Mb/sec. which is the usual speed here.

The fact that they all use XP and have differing hardware should make no difference I think - if I'm wrong I can supply those details. This new computer has a much higher specification than the others but again would this make a difference?

I have done virus and malware scans.

Can anyone explain what could be causing this and how I can fix this please? I can't think of any other relevant info to include at this point.

Concentrate on the link between your computer and the router. Replace the cable if it is a wired connection. Use the cable from one of the working systems to test. Also use the same port as one of the fast systems.

If no change, swap the network card or check for updated drivers or chipset drivers if the ethernet connector is on the mainboard
Your router may also have QOS settings that give priority to one or more computers based on ip or MAC address.

I live in an area where DSL is not available, so I'm using a dial up connection (AOL 9.0) Our old computer (Dell Dimension 4100, Win ME) would get anywhere from 50 to 53.3K speed and when it wasn't locking up had reasonable internet speed. We recently purchased a new computer (E machines C2825) and the speed rarely reaches over 35K using the same access numbers. It has XP home. Is there a way to get the speed up? Even though it is a 56K modem, is there something that would limit the speed, and if so can I change it? Or should I return the E-machines while it's still under warranty and quit while I'm not so far behind?
 

A:Slow dial up speed on brand new computer

Is this the exact same phone connection that you used before?

A lot of things can affect the speed, but few have much to do with the computer or modem themselves.

The phone connections must be in excellent condidion since even a small problem with a bad connection or corrosion can make a lot of difference to a dialup connection.

When I first moved into "this old house", 35 was all I could get. But unscrewing all the phone connections and cleaning to bare copper, from the computer to the box outside gave me solid 53.3 connections after that. Even the connections on the modem itself and the wire going in can be cleaned with a Q-Tip and alcohol.

In the Control Panel under modem settings, some say speed can be achieved by turning off flow control (hardly a problem with new computers---old ones sometimes couldn't keep up) and be sure compression is enabled.

Check that all your modem speed settings are at or above its capacity, and look for the newest driver you can find.

If you like the computer and it works well, I certainly wouldn't consider returning it for this alone. New modems can be gotten for $10.

The number of other devices connected to the same phone line should also be limited. The more answering machines, extensions, caller ID's on the line, the slower it will be.

And limit the length of phone cords. If you have 20 feet of rolled up phone wire behind the computer, get a shorter wire .

That's all I can think of at the moment. Othe... Read more

I seem to have a problem with the speed of my excel program and its willingness to move between cells in a timely manner. My computer is on a network and is not the main, however, all programs on my computer are stand alone programs (Individually installed). We simply share the data (Files) between them. Lately my excel program has been slow to respond to commands. (Type in one cell and tab over to continue typing in another cell and it takes a moment for the curser to catch up.) Although there are quite a few programs where data is shared, Excel seem to be the only one affected. Have talked with Gateway (OEM installed Office 2003) with no luck in solving the problem. Repaired and Reinstalled....still no change. Even tried unhooking the router. This did eliminate the problem, however, I need the shared files on the network. We did switch the ports around to make sure the the router wasn't bad and experienced the same problem no matter what port we were in. No other computer is experiencing the same problem, just mine.

Hello, I think I may have a couple of problems going on.

B) My e-mail account is a concern. I occasionally get junk mail, like stock info or men's medications. I usually add them to my block senders list. I have noticed that some of the e-mail addresses that I block come from ligitimate sites, i.e. design/build firms or realtor firms. Can e-mail addresses be hi-jacked? The reason I ask is because this morn. I went to block one and my own e-mail address came up.

Okay, this has been going on for weeks. Even my pretty techie bro is out of ideas. My brother returned to college not long ago, but he was still home when it all started. I'd asked him to see if internet was slow or anything, and he checked and told me it was fine. A few days later my dad brought his laptop home from work. The laptop is only on our network when he's doing stuff at home - but I asked him, and I was for myself it was completely fine...and fast. And as my brother's now back at college with his laptop, my computer is generally the only one on the network, but as it was going on before that, I know their laptops weren't effecting anything.

Now that we're done with the back-story, I'll do my best to explain what's going on: The connection on my computer is fine. Sometimes it'll short out, but generally it's good. However, it's always slow - about maybe 2 times faster than dial-up. But pretty often it becomes incredibly slow, taking as much as 20-30 minutes to load something, even simpler things.

That's the best I can come up with right now about the problem. Resetting the router and/or restarting the computer can help a little, but it eventually goes to near dial-up speed, then down to when it's very slow.

I guess something to add is that I'm the only one with Vista on the computer. My dad's laptop has XP, and my brother has a Mac laptop.

Hi,

My mum had McAfee and then decided to change and use Norton antivirus software. Since she did this, her computer is running really slow. I found some residual McAfee files and removed these, it helped a little, but it's still running slow.

I tried to defrag the hard drive and I received the message "Disk defrag has detected that chkdsc is scheduled to run on the volume PRESARIO (C" followed by the instruction run chkdsk /f
When I run chkdsk /f I get a message telling me that it can't run because the volume is in use by another process.

I'm at a bit of a loss as to what do in regards to this. I have posted the hijackthis log below, and I hope some one can help me speed up this computer. Its Compaq Presario with Windows XP 2002. If any more information is required I'm happy to provide it.

Thank you!

Bella

I followed all the advice given in the instructions per the slowness and it still is laggy. Norton came with the computer and I've tried to completely remove it but there seems to be bits and pieces still sticking around. Any advice is helpful, thanks!

After several problems with Outlook Express, I reinstalled XP(Home edition) and also Norton AV 2004. Now my computer is running slower than ever ... takes 7-10 minutes to log on, then there are error messages (which will be another thread ...) But for now, can someone please answer the question as to whether the Norton AV 2004 is the reason for slowing down the computer?

Thanks ...

Hi all.
I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite C50-A02-V running Windows 8 Home Edition.

I've never really had the fastest internet, but its always been alright for what I used it for... untill i purchased this computer. Suffice it to say the internet is... a little below sub par.
Heres a speedtest...

My phone, My sisters Laptop running windows 7, even my old 2006 IBM running Linux all are getting speedtests with Download speeds of at least 5-6Mbps from the same router, with at least 5-6Mbps.
And yet here I am, brand new computer in hand, with memories of dialup floating through my head.

I've been on message boards trying to find an answer to this for hours. I've changed the Wireless settings to not turn off the Wifi. I've checked Toshiba's Website and downloaded the latest WLAN driver. I deleted literally every last ounce of bloatware from the computer when I got it, so I don't THINK that's an issue. There's no torrents or security running either.

Basicaly I have no idea what to do.

Now the weird thing is if I turn the computer on, and do a speedtest right away, I'm getting a fast Ping and a download of 5 Mbps instead of the 0.6...

Any Help or ideas on what to do?

A:Impossibly Slow Wifi Speed, Brand New Computer.

Did you try an ethernet cable instead of wireless? If that works normally, read on...

I had a problem like this many years ago, it turned out to be something wrong with the drivers for the network card I was using. To fix it, go into device manager and find the entry for the wireless network adapter (eg "xyz wireless network adapter"). Right click on the adapter and select "remove". Reboot the machine. It should detect the adapter as new hardware and reinstall the drivers for the network hardware. Of course you may need to supply the drivers at this point if they are not available on the machine.

This is somewhat techy and if you are not a level 2 nerd you may want to get a qualified friend to help...

Hello.  I am on a computer that is using Windows 7 Ultimate.  When I start up the computer it is very slow.  I tried to uninstall some unused programs from the computer and there is a program that I tried to uninstall that keeps reinstalling automatically called PC Fix Speed.    

So far I have tried to restore the computer from a save point and it has not worked.  I am currently running a malwarebytes scan.  
 
I am trying to fix this computer for my landlord so that he can use it as a HTPC in our living room.  Thanks for your help.

Hello StrobeStop,
Lets see if these will kick it to the curb.....
 
 
 
 
1..   Please download Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) to your desktop.
There are 2 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.
rKill.exe: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/10/
iExplore.exe (renamed rKill.exe): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/11/
    Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
    If using Vista or Windows 7 right-click on it and choose Run As Administrator.
    A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
    If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
    Do not reboot until instructed.
    If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please advise me of this..
2..
Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
    Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool. Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator
.
    Click on the Scan button.
    AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to com... Read more

Hello Everyone,
 
So I go on my desktop computer today and what do you know, the internet is really slow. I do a speedtest on my laptop which is right next desktop, and it has regular internet speeds. However, my desktop is really struggling, at times I can't even load basic pages, let alone play games. It's a custom built PC and I'm using a Netcomm wireless adapter to get a wireless connection (I can't use wired). 
 
What happened?!? Why is this randomly happening? Is my adapter broken? Do I need to update something?
 
Sorry if this in the wrong place.
If you need any more information to help me solve this problem then just ask.
 
Thanks,
~Gun

For the past few months i have noticed that my Vista HP Pavilion dvd6565us has been running really slow.  Typically to open an internet browser it takes a minute and then everything seems to happen in slow motion once it gets online.  Also the fan always seems to be running and the bottom of the laptop gets really hot.  Finally I have the free comcast version of Norton 365 and it is always telling me that I have high disk usage host process for windows services. Anyone know if there is something wrong with the computer.  I have run Comodo Dragon, Norton Anti Virus and Malware bytes with nothing being detected.  Also when I run a full scan on Comodo or Norton it can take over 24 hrs to run a full scan. 
Thanks!
