Preferred Solution: Internet Speed Very Slow For 256k, Very Slow Start Up, Very Laggy When Multi Tasking

I recommend downloading and running Outlook PST Repair. It's a PST repair tool that I've used it in the past to recover emails, contacts, tasks and notes from corrupt Outlook files that are damaged or inaccessible. Supports Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/1bjhSi. (This link will automatically start a download of Outlook PST Repair that you can save to your computer.)

Hey Guys and Girls,

First off, I'd like to give you my laptop specs before describing my physical problem to help elimnate the need to point at computer specs for the cause.

HP Pavilion dv5000
Microsoft Windows XP Pro Service Pack 3
AMD Turion 64 Mobile ML-37 @ 2.0GHz
2GB DDR
ATi Xpress 200 Mobile

Okay, I understand that my laptop isn't dual core or it doesn't have ddr2 ram, however it has been working fine before this issue. It also has XP Pro instead of the memory hungry vista.

So just recently, my boot up takes around 5 minutes on a good day, and when the windows music plays it skips violently as it boots up. Music on my computer played through vlc media player also skips along with youtube videos. Beside the music skipping left and right, my overall computer performance is very very slow. In efforts to fix the problem, I have done the following.

CCleaner - Found about 800MB of temp files and useless files. All of which I deleted. Also found 102 registry errors, which I backed up my registry before fixing all of them.

Spybot Search and Destroy - Update definitions and found nothing after a full search.

Sound Driver - Reinstalled and yet the probelm remains.

Useless Programs - I went and unistalled multiple programs that have no purpose to me.

MSCONFIG - Set my startup to only start one windows command, sound controller. Yet the boot takes at least 5 minutes.

AVG Free Scan - Set the scan to slow and let it go overnight, found nothing beside... Read more

Well for the past 4-5 months I've been experiencing internet that seems to continue to get slower and slower and it'll lag me out of online games most of the time. It really seems like the connection just completely stops anywhere from a second to even 10-20 seconds sometimes and it'll take forever to load webpages sometimes too. We have replaced both our modem (now a linksys) and router (now a belkin) and still have been experiencing these problems. Seems like after our old router broke that it stopped working right and just gets worse and worse. Also the light for modem goes yellow quite often which I believe means that it's having trouble working right. Oh and my ISP is Cox and we have yet to have them look at it but we have called about the issues we were having. Any help?

I am using Windows XP and have had my netbook for about 2.5 years. Over the weekend, I noticed a drastic slowdown. Originally, it was while watching television shows online. Whether on hulu.com or huludesktop.com or nbc.com, they all would play a minute or so and stop and then another and then stop, with audio ending up unsynchronized with the video. After that frustration, I started noticing the computer itself seemed slow. Just switching tabs, minimizin windows, et cetera. Now I am worried that I might have picked up some sort of virusy-like substance because I was browsing some seemingly sketchy sites before it started.

What I have tried so far: restarting, different browsers, a different profile, running Spybot, Malware Bytes, and Avira. I checked my msconfig and regedit (under Run for trojans, but did not check anything else in there). I have a HijackThis log, but no idea how to read it (and noticed this forum said not to post it).

A:Very slow/laggy Both internet and offline

Can you post the logs from Spybot, Malwarebytes, and Avira?

Hi! A couple days ago my computer has been acting really badly.
It's very slow and laggy when it comes to the Internet and Desktop, when before, both ran fast.
I'm also having a problem with A LOT of pop-ups when I use the Internet.
Pop-ups are shut off (I use Firefox btw.) and they hadn't started appearing until a couple days ago.
Really hope you could help! Thanks in advanced.

Hi,

Usually my internet connection is fine, surfing is good and playing games on my PS3 is quick and smooth. For the past few weeks however my connection has become a slow, stuttering/laggy mess and when I play COD I have the worst connection stats and I am usually chucked from a game.

Where do I start with my investigations? I do know there is no general issue with broadband in my area.

Would you guys need some stats from me to order to help?

Regards,

Purchased Windows 8 Pro with a new computer system, an HP Envy, last week for work.

Have a dedicated 20 down and 20 up connection that is functioning at speed.

Loading internet pages with Windows 8 is incredibly slow. Had the very same connection with a 7 year old HP using Windows XP and the speed blew this away.

Help?

A:Slow Slow internet speed with Windows 8

Slow pages are usually a sign of a dns problem. How do you have DNS configured? Are you using a gateway or router of some kind? Is that configured properly?

Hello,

I am having issues with my internet. It is very frustrating because I occasionally appear to solve the problem and the internet becomes very slow and loses connection temporarily. Sometimes a couple times a day this occurs where the internet gets really slow and some pages load halfway and occasionally the internet just goes out all together. This issue is particularly odd because it appears that my laptop is the only one that gets this issue. There are two other laptops that do not appear to have this issue using the same connection. I have previously tried updating my drivers and other windows updates. I have also reset my router settings, moved my laptop to a different locations, changed channels on my router, and none have worked as of yet.

Any ideas to solutions for this issue would be largely appreciated.

Thank you.

Only had this new pc a few weeks and it is so slow now after 3 blue screen of death crashes that caused this I think, I believe firefox caused. I am not sure how to read dump files to show you details of the BSOD. I am including details of my PC along with the hijack this log, my system is clean though according to antispyware and virus scans.

2GB DDRII RAM
VISTA ULTIMATE 32bit

I installed 64bit before this 32bit one on another partition of this HDD but cannot boot into it anymore at startup because this PC won't let me select it because it does not detect my keyboard in DOS mode for some weird reason.

A:Snail Speed Pc At Times And Always Slow Internet Speed On Vista Ultimate

I found this helpful information on possible solutions, very familiar with errors on previous Microsoft operating systems. http://www.vandersluijs.nl/content/view/973/96/lang,enI uninstalled one of the suggested updates and so far it is fine, the update was only optional so no security threats. I think it has helped, not certain if it will be like a fresh install because windows is slower than it was two weeks ago. If 3 weeks is best windows can handle for being ready for a new install I may have to go back to Linux. I hope this thread can stay on this forum somewhere to help others follow the link I posted above for possible solutions to this problem, it will save them time and effort trying numerous things.

Hi there
I think that even on a phone the whole idea of these metro apps might be getting "old fashioned" or like Dinosaur Technology now.
I've played around with a Windows phone - but what I really miss is the ability to do a bit of decent multi tasking -- I don't need MULTIPLE WINDOWS (unlike on a PC) but a decent bit of multi-tasking.

For example I could be replying to an email, meanwhile on the email I want to attach a document which before attaching I want to create or modify.

So I have to LEAVE the email app by saving the draft -- do the document modification, back to the email - reload it again from the drafts etc and attach the document.

Same if I am doing something and I get a messenger type call say on something like Ms LYNC.

Phones have enough power and memory to be able to decently multi-task applications -- and if a W8 phone which HAS a decent multi-tasking OS already could implement this it could be an "Android" killer as I can't see Android getting into any type of multi-tasking without a complete re-write top to bottom.

Internet pages can be saved I agree but that's not always the most convenient way to flip between applications.

So Ms -- some of the CPU's in these smart phones have more power than a lot of low end laptops -- so forget all this Metro junk and sort the OS out properly -- the W8 phones could be an absolute winner (and I LIKE my Galaxy IIIs phone but would get a decent W8 one in an instant if it had decent multi-taskin...

These were caused by a memory exception. Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.
1-Memtest.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

This is becoming increasingly frustrating. I have never had these problem with Windows 7 RC x64.

But, for some reason my recently installed Windows 7 x64 7600 has been freezing. Stays frozen for 20-25 minutes then makes a loud boop noise and unfreezes.

The programs I normally have running when this happens are utorrent, firefox, nod32, malwarebytes (active protection), itunes and maybe ps3 media server. I have different combination of these programs running and it still happens. I deleted some non essential programs hoping that would help.

I have done quite a few virus and malware scans and haven't found anything.

I have a nearly fresh install of Win7 32 bit on a pretty modern machine. It has been intermittently laggy since I installed Win7 about three weeks ago.

Here is a list of symptoms:
1) Apps are slow to open
2) Double clicks aren't registered until 5-10 seconds later
3) Typing is slow on most apps, but only intermittently
4) Most Net browsing is very slow - not slow to load, but slow to react and slow to open new tabs & windows

System specs: quad core Pentium, NForce 750 mobo, Nvidia G9500GT card with 1GB, 4GB 800mhz RAM, cable internet and Buffalo router.

Any thoughts on where to start?

I don't think it's a system issue. Also, the Win7 install is super fresh. Further, it's the second install on the same machine (I thought I could fix the same issue with a fresh install). My experience index is 4.6 limited by the graphics card.

A:Slow to open apps, all Net apps slow, slow to type... laggy everything

OK so I isolated the following:

- Antivirus: I am running Panda Cloud, which is the same AV as on the PC upstairs
- RAM: checks out fine, 4 GB, same amount runs fine on the PC upstairs
- Vidcard: system performance seems OK if I do not switch between programs. That is, if I stay in one program for a while, the systems runs at an acceptable speed.
- Web browser: system lag is identical in Chrome, IE, and Firefox.

A:Not Again! Slow PC, Slow Start Up, Slow Outside of Internet

Hello justanotherguy,

You continue to get reinfected because you are still running unpatched XP.

IMPORTANT!:
Before we can proceed any further, please visit the Microsoft's Windows Update Page and install ALL Critical Updates for your system (except service pack 2 (SP2). SP2 should only be installed on a fully disinfected system.) At the minimum install at least SP1a for both XP and IE6. Without these updates your system is wide open to re-infection and we are both wasting our efforts to clean your system. After we have completed your clean-up, we will have you return to the Windows Update page and install SP2. We will also then advise you on how to better protect yourself online.

Please apply those updates BEFORE posting your next log. It is this forum's policy to stop the disinfection process until these basic updates are done. If during the updating process you get a message that your product key is invalid ....then you may not have a legitimate copy of Windows XP. Unfortunately it?s also this forums policy that we only address users with a legal copy of Windows XP.... therefore if you can not update Windows XP to SP1 we must stop the cleansing process here.

**Note** If you're having trouble locating the service pack SP1a here is a direct link to download it from.

Been running Win7 for 2 weeks or so now but didn't actually get into using is till a week ago, had to do some hardware upgrades.

My original sound (on board) was incompatible. Bought a $20 Diamond 5.1 XtremeSound card. No problems installing. Ran fine, sounded great.

Sound works fine, games, movies are good, iTunes, WMP.

Only issues im getting is during multitasking. Usually Firefox. When I'm browsing around, searching, anything really while playing music on iTunes the sound get very choppy and cracky and even worse on Youtube. Seems to be an issue with Firefox.

I've uninstalled k-lite and reinsalled it several times.. and checked the drivers on my sound card. Even configured ac3 filter and hooked up new cables. Same problem though.

Any ideas ?

I am at my wits end with my Laptop, here is what the issue is and what I have done.

Background on Laptop:
I have a HP Pavilion dv6 i7 and the following has been done to it in the last month.
1. The Cooling fan has been replaced
2. Hard Drive has been replaced
3. Motherboard has been replaced
4. A clean install of Windows has been done twice
5. All available Windows Updates have been installed
6. All drivers have been updated to the latest version
7. I have also uninstalled the Video Drivers, rebooted and done a reinstall

As per the instructions I am attaching the log files. Can someone please help me out with what to do next?

Thank you for your time!

Kind regards,
Jainesh.

A:BSOD Happens while I am multi tasking across various programs

Code:

Probably caused by : Unknown_Image ( ANALYSIS_INCONCLUSIVE )
Hmm, I've noticed with all the dump files the same time interval is 19 ticks which is interesting...

For 0x101 bugchecks I need Kernel Memory Dumps.

Follow these instructions on how to change to Kernel Memory Dumps.

Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Once changed wait for another BSOD, then upload the new dump file to a file sharing website like OneDrive.
The new dump file will be located in C:/Windows/memory.dmp.

Don't zip it up as it corrupts the dump file by compressing it.

Make sure your dump logging is enabled.
Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click System.
Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
Check Write an even to the system log, and Automatically restart.
In the Write debugging information list, click Small memory dump (256k).

Perhaps some of these are self explanatory, but I always value other opinions anyway.

1: Can mild gaming, YouTube browsing or doing anything else on my PC while MSE/MBAM are performing a full scan effect their threat detection accuracy?

2: Based off my system specs, just giving a rough guess, how severely would such multi-tasking as listed above effect the time to complete a full scan?

All these years I've always set aside time to run such scans while doing nothing else at the time. Just now though I've noticed that during a full MSE scan my CPU usage is only at 30-50% so I'm wondering if it's really necessary I wait & do nothing during this weekly routine.

I just built my first computer, (parts list: Newegg.com - Once You Know, You Newegg) and I'm running Win7 64 bit.

The system rating is around 7.5 - 7.8 (it's sitting at 1.0 because of Windows Aero or something being stuck at 1) the ram sits at about .9GB of the 8GB max, and the CPU averages at about 2% on most tasks. But the problem is whenever I install something, save something, anything almost it seems, the system chokes up. I can't do anything for more than 3 minutes and then it goes back to normal for a minute maybe. Needless to say this is very aggravating, as the purpose of the machine is gaming and more intensive operations, and the rate at which it's going it would probably take more than a month just to install all the games I have.

My first thought is maybe since I'm using a 1TB HDD for the OS and well everything, it might be slow trying to dig through the vast size of the HDD. But I've heard that it could also be the OS having some problem from the install (including but not limited to some registry error) or maybe even the HDD itself being bad, even though when it does work it seems to be fine (faster than my old HDD even).

I've gotten all the Windows Updates, and have updated the hardware drivers (via Catalyst Control, CD/Online updates). So I don't think that it's an issue with drivers/firmware.

Thanks in advance if anybody has suggestions/ideas.

Hi,

I'm currently using Windows 7 RC1 (7100) and waiting for 22nd October
I did some test about multi-tasking in this build (7100) and after opened ~80 explorer windows - my windows couldn't open new windows it looks like a very big lag, explorer.exe in Windows Task Manager reach ~350MB RAM usage.
It looks very similiar to this video:

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4slDVbgVos"]YouTube - Windows 7 sucks at simple multi tasking[/ame]

So I have a question to you - Did you observe the same results/behavior on yours machines? In RC or better RTM version of Windows 7?

Thanks,

Hi there!

First of all, congrats for this amazing forum, it helped me alot before!

Regarding my BSOD's, they have always happened but in a spontaneously way so I didn't care much, now whenever I try to play any kind of game, after 5 to 10 min I get BSOD! I formated the laptop from windows 8 to windows 7 and it still happens. It's still on warranty but I'm not very fond of not having my main computer for at least a month.

The details are on the attachment.

Thanks in advance for you amazing support,
Daniel Correia.

EDIT: When I had windows 8 the BSOD, name it got was WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR, but it's now changed.

EDIT2: I've done several "fixes" regarding the WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR, to no avail.

Any question you need to clarify about my issue, I'll reply asap!

A:BSOD playing games or multi-tasking

Hello ComputerUser201, Welcome to Seven Forums. I will try to help you with this. You have 2 Dump Files both dated 10/26 Both files show an 0X124 error, which is a generic hardware error but it gives no indication of what that hardware is. When you switched to Windows 7, did you download Windows 7 Drivers for the OS? The Windows 8 drivers won't work well in most cases. Please go to your Manufacturer's web site and download any updated drivers for Windows 7. Also, please go to device Manager and see if any have a yellow icon on them or a Grey exclamation mark on them. If you find one, those are the drivers you need to update, but update the Chipset drivers for sure.

After you have done that, make sure you have run and installed all Importany and Recommended Windows Updates. Install any you have, then after that is completed and you reboot, go back to Windows Update and click the button in the left column to check for new updates. Continue doing that until it says no new updates.

After updating your drivers and the Windows Updates, please open a elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc and the /. It is a system file checker which will scan your system files and attempt to correct any missing or corrupt files. What we want are the results to say windows found no integrity viola... Read more

HI,
I've been led to believe that the start up of windows 7 is much faster than other windows OS's, but I've not found it to be any quicker. It awakes from sleep faster, but if I shut it down and restart it it's no quicker, and might even be a touch slower. My wife has windows 7 at work and says it's like lightening starting up.

Is this because I upgraded to windows 7 with Dell, and if so would I be better installing it from scratch? Would I be able to do this with an upgrade CD, I pretty sure it gave me the option when installing?

I've seen on another thread to type is MSconfig and under the startup tab disable any unwanted programmes, but unfortunately I'm not that clued up on computers and so do not know what's needed and what isn't. Here's the list from my start up menu.

Microsoft security essentials
Quickset
Microsoft Windows operating system
Software manager
Adobe reader and acrobat manager
Adobe acrobat
Datasafe online
Dell webcam central
Dell support centre updates
HpwuSchd Application (Hewlett-Packard)
HpqSRmon Application (Hewlett-Packard)
iTunes
Default Manager
Cyberlink PowerDVD
QuickTime
Java(TM) Platform S

In layman's terms what does disabling these from the startup actually do? Does this mean I can't use these programmes, or that I have to manually start them?

Cheers

A:Slow Start up using Win7, how can I speed it up

By disabling the program you will just prevent it from being started every time you log in.

You should still be able to run these applications manually, (assuming that the program actually has a user interface, some will not as they are just assistant programs to speed up the use of their main programs).

A quick Google of the name you see in the list should give you enough information to decide if you wish to auto start the program or not

I have a P4 2.8Ghz processoer with an intel motherboard, 512 ddr ram, a dvd r+- recordable drive with 2 120 gb sata hdds and a 80 gb removable hdd. All hds are seagate 7,200 rpm baracudda. I have winxp installed with service pack 2 installed with all the updates. I use azureus for downloading large avi files. I have a broadband connection of 512 kpbs. Anytime the system feels like it slips int PIO Mode and it becomes slow. or a blue screen appears and windows crashe.I searched the net and found this article on http:\\www.michna.com/kb/WxDMA.htm and the solution this article offers are:
Re-enable DMA using the Registry Editor

Run REGEDIT. Go to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E96A-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

It has subkeys like 0000, 0001, 0002, etc. Normally 0001 is the primary IDE channel, 0002 the secondary. You have to go through these subkeys and check the DriverDesc value until you find the proper IDE channel.

Delete MasterIdDataChecksum or SlaveIdDataChecksum, depending on whether the device in question is attached as master or slave, but it can't actually hurt to delete both. Reboot. The drive DMA capabilities will be redetected.

Alternative Method—Uninstalling the Port
1. Uninstall the secondary IDE port
Open Device Manager as follows. Right-click on My Computer, select Properties, click on the Hardware tag, click on the Device Manager button, click on the plus sign to the left of IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller,... Read more

My PC has Windows 7, 8gb ram, an intel i5 4670 and Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 graphics card, corsair 650w PSU, and 256mb solid state drive as well as some other western digital hard drives. It's around 3 years old at this point.

Recently I swapped my old 19" 4:3 monitor for a bigger screen with a 1920x1080 resolution. Since then it's been suffering from intermittent slowness and distorted sound. For example, when playing a game (Archeage, an MMO, 2 year old game so not hugely cutting edge) and trying to play music at the same time from youtube, with several browser tabs open, the game's FPS drops and the sound will become distorted and slurred. I turned down the game's graphics settings from 'very high' to 'normal' which fixed it for a while, but overall it's progressively gotten harder and harder to avoid my PC sounding slurred and distorted and going slow during gaming. I used to be able to reasonably smoothly run two instances of this game at once to multibox, and now I can't even reliably run one without this problem if I do anything else but play the game.

At first I thought it was overheating, because GPU and processor both typically were maxing in the low 80s (Celsius). I cleaned out a lot of dust from my CPU and GPU fans but now I'm finding that I still get distortion and slowness even though the temperatures are 10+C better. I even got distortion when both were at 50C.

Moreover, I notice this sound distortion happens when task manager shows the CPU usage... Read more
