Window 7 Professional sounds like it is trying to downlaod something and slower

Q: Window 7 Professional sounds like it is trying to downlaod something and slower

I have done a lot of reading...tried a few things...no virus or issue that I can determine..EMISOFT and SuperAnti, system clean, basic task bar and start up review..nothing seems wrong. PC is very very clean from my point of view. It sound like it is trying to download something and sometimes I can get it to stop by rebooting. Almost think is has something to do with FIREFOX or an update of some type. I installed more RAM a few months ago and even adjusted the paging and all that...still happens. CPU goes to 100% when this happens which is most of the time..The PC however worked fine..It could be getting slower but not really..then again..I am so confused...any thoughts out there as to what I might be able to research and or do?

Preferred Solution: Window 7 Professional sounds like it is trying to downlaod something and slower

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.)

A: Window 7 Professional sounds like it is trying to downlaod something and slower

You should use the Windows Task Manager or better Process Explorer to check what is using the CPU at 100%

Hey all,

I upgraded my OS from WIN 7 Home 64-bit, to WIN 7 Prof 64-bit and my browsing speed decreased dramatically. I primarily used Chrome before, but browsing is practically impossible on it now. So now I use Firefox 4 since its been decent with me. I have no clue what went wrong since the upgrade was successful. My router is fine, but browsing speed is just super slow. It wasn't like this before I upgraded. Does anyone know what the problem might be? Please and thanks for any advice given!

A:cant hear sounds from my windowes 2000 professional

You may have tried these things already but I will try and throw out a few Ideas at you.

First: ensure known working speakers are being used, maybe try a set of head phones as well to ensure redundancy.

Second: I would have to say check your device manager to see if it is even showing an audio device.
Start->right click "my computer" ->Manage ( or go via Control panel.) Select device manager.

third: Either way whether good or bad in step two, check the manufacturer of the hardware and see if they have Driver support. Most do, so download the most recent drivers, and try to install them.

fourth: If this is not fruitful try opening the case and see if your Audio device is connected properly, if it is onboard audio or a sound card there is a good chance a Wire should be connecting it. Ensure all your connections are proper hardware wise.

fifth: If you can maybe try a different known working sound card. Also depending on the architecture some hardware devices if too old or with poor legacy support also may not be supported with windows 2000.

Let us know how it goes from there and Good luck!

I thought a repair of windows may fix this but to no avail

I can't remember when, maybe a few months ago now.. I noticed that when Windows shut down, to reboot, or started up the sound wouldn't work. It also happens with the recycle bin, and some other sounds through Windows. My MP3's work fine, so I'm wondering if anyone has any clues as to what maybe causing this?

A:window xp professional

Windows XP 32-bit will recognize and use a maximum of about 3.25 GB of RAM.

Windows XP 64-bit will recognize and use more than 4 GB of RAM.

Unless you plan to install it in a computer that has and needs more than 4 GB of RAM, use the 32-bit version.

You may also run into a problem with installing and using certain programs with the 64-bit version.

I am at work and my question is for the computer at home. I have reformat my harddrive and try to install win. xp professional on the computer. Turn on the computer and i am in dos mode. I put in the win. xp professional disk in the cd rom to install. The computer then goes installing, it starts by going to the xp setup screen, ask a few questions like Fats 32 and copywrite agreements and such. It would not go into the actual installation of the xp installation program where it would ask for a disk code. After the xp setup program, it then ask to restart my computer, which i did. After the restart it would ask to "press a key for cd-rom boot" and i did, then it would go into the xp setup screen again and the whole xp setup process would starts over again and then it would ask to be reboot again. Now during the beginning of restarting the computer, if i didn't press a key at that point of time when it was asking "press any key to boot from cd-rom", then it would give me this promt "NTLDR is missing press any key to restart". I then would press a key but it would not restart but the same prompt "NTLDR is missing press any key to restart" would appear again. I cannot do anyting at this point and have to mannually turn off the computer. I don't know what to do now?

Please help

A:need help in installing window xp professional

NTLDR is missing press any key to restart, your getting this error because there is a cd in the drive and it's looking for NTLDR file, which appears not to be on it. (strange)

go to www.bootdisk.com and download the six floppies for xp. Put the first one in your puter, and restart, run through all six, and then continue the set up process with the cd.

you said you reformatted the hard drive? I believe you have to set the partition first, then format. XP should do this for you, try the boot disks, and let us know if it works.

I have Windows XP and I have Office Professional 2003. I downloaded the Trial 2007 Office Pro from Microsoft's website, but after trying decided I really didn't like it so I uninstalled it. Even before I unistalled when ever I opened a 2003 application the Windows installer would pop up. Now that I have uninstalled 2007, my 2003 won't open, it is like it isn't there (although I went to the control panel and it was there). The Windows Installer pops up no matter what I try to do, even logging on to the internet.

I went into the control panel where you can add and remove programs and 2003 is still there. I tried restoring back to a previous date, but that wouldn't work.

Can anyone tell me how to get the Installer to stop popping up, and how can I get the system to recognize my 2003 Office Software?

A:Window Installer/Office Professional


Do you still have the install disks for 2003?

If so remove 2003 & anything to do with it and 2007 and reinstall from the disk.

A:Window 7 Premium vs Windows 7 Professional

Some searching lead me to Can I downgrade from Windows 7 Ultimate to Home Premium? - Microsoft Community.

Try at your won risk!

Hello Everyone

I was in a similar situation. I had "Windows 7 Home Prem OA HP" on a HP desktop I bought new and then upgraded the system to Ultimate with an Upgrade key. But now that I bought a refurb desktop with no OS (with a COA for "Windows Vista Business OEMAc") I needed to use that Ultimate license on the "new" refurb desktop. So my "downgrade ultimate to home premium" search brought me here, amongst other places.

I used a registry solution explained here and in several other places, but I made the changes manually and without the use of a popular tool from a website called deviantart. I figured I was better off hacking the puter manually myself. I did however used it this way (notice upper & lower case matching the "Ultimate" entry format):

HKLM\Software\Microsot\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
EditionID "Ultimate" changed to "HomePremium"
ProductName "Windows 7 Ultimate" changed to "Windows 7 HomePremium"

For reference, I also used the following posting on tomshardware (Downgrading Win7 Pro to Home Premium - Downgrade - Windows 7), specially the response by aquasystems. I would've added this reply there but the thread was closed.

I have sound problem associated with the internal speaker of my laptop. Even after installing the latest driver for the product from the HP site, i hear no sound.

How to get this problem fixed.
Normally the supported drivers with the package, No change made in bios or service pack, should work. But it is not working in my case.
why update driver is necessary if there is no change in the hard ware, ie, sound card that came with the laptop.

I have an HP Pavilion Laptop that originally had Vista installed on it, then it was upgraded to Windows 8. One day it would not boot. It would display a message that Windows was preparing to repair itself and then it would quickly flash a message that the PC ran into a problem and needs to reboot. Once it reboots, it would do the same thing again.

I backed up the data from the hard drive to an external using a Linux live CD and I ran some checks on the HDD. So the HDD appears not to be the source of the problem.

At this point I thought the best choice of action would be to install a fresh/clean copy of Windows 8, However, I am still stuck in the same loop. I turn the laptop on with the Window 8 disk inserted and press any key to boot from the DVD drive when prompted. I can hear the DVD drive spin up and then the Windows logo appears and the same message about running into a problem and needing to reboot appears.

I am really stumped by this one. Thank you in advance for any advice.

Hi All,

I use Windows 7 Professional 32 bit. I want to open folders in command prompt from windows explorer without having me to navigate in the cmd window to my folder. After researching in google, I came to know that there is an option (Open Command Window Here) in the right-click menu to open command prompt windows quickly. However, when I right-click I do not see that option. Instead I see an option called ?cmd?. When I hold shift key and right click on this option I get an error message. See attached.

I tried to google this error in internet but couldn?t get any clues as to why this happens. Some sites suggested me to delete the "Extended" registry keys in the following nodes:


I tried to delete the ?Extended? key from the above registry nodes and restarted my laptop but didn?t help.

Hello Red Hunt, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The "Extended" key is for having to press Shift + right click instead of just right click.

I found that if I renamed the file by replacing the underscore before the exe with a dot the file would work as an application with icon change and everything.

Hi there Ive been using firefox for 6 months now with no probs at all, I have all the latest updates and used Adware SE and Spybot plus Avast but they found no probs, my prob is Im unable to download anything from any site when browsing with Firefox , but I have no problems downloading with IE. Any suggestions much appreciated.

A:Unable to downlaod using Firefox

Clearing the Download History sometimes does the trick. If is doesn't, close Firefox and delete the downloads.rdf file located in the Profiles folder, then try a download.

Location: C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx\downloads.rdf

(xxxxxxxx is a string of random letters and numbers)

You'll need to convert the quicktime file to a wmv file in your computer.

Do a download.com or tucows.com search for available freeware.

THIS might help.
