Windows 7 runs fine in safe mode, but very slow in normal mode

Q: Windows 7 runs fine in safe mode, but very slow in normal mode

Hello,
 
all of a sudden Windows 7 became extremely slow in normal mode. This doesn't happen in safe mode.
 
The laptop now also makes 3 beeps on startup, but the beeps disappear when Windows login page comes up. The only thing I did is updating Java and the beeps started.
 
I'm sending in attachment DDS, OTL and ComboFix logs.
 
Thanks in advance for your help!

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 runs fine in safe mode, but very slow in normal mode

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.)

I recently re-formatted my Sony VAIO since it was starting to run super slow. Now that I re-installed Windows 7 on it through recovery disks, it worked fined for about a day but then the problem came back. The computer is slow at bootup and runs super slow while freezing so many times. I am running it on safe mode right now and its working fine.

I ran hardware diagnostics and everything is fine (Memory, Hard Disk etc.)

I installed Norton Antivirus and Windows Live Messenger after the re-install.

Please help me.

Hi,
 
I could use some help. My Toshiba Satellite laptop is having issues after the normal startup with slowing down dramatically after it goes to the desktop. It will basically freeze with commands taking between 5-50 seconds to be recognized and sometimes it just freezes. When I boot into Safe Mode, I am running everything smoothly. I could really use some help figuring out whats going on.

A:Everything runs very slow in normal, but fine in Safe Mode.

Open msconfig and on the General tab choose "selective startup" (uncheck all three items) and reboot. Does the problem still occur? If not, start adding items back to msconfig one or two at a time, rebooting after each change, until the problem reappears and you'll have identified the offending process. This is clearly a time consuming procedure, but it is the best way to determine if some process loading with the system is the cause of your problem.
 
After you've isolated the cause, do not use msconfig to permanently disable the process. Instead, if it is a service go to START - RUN and type: services.msc (then press enter) and disable the service OR, if it a program, you can download & run a simple app such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml) to enable, disable, or otherwise manage startup programs.

Hi, I navigated to this site doing a google search and finding a post in your forum that was similar to my issue.
 
On 9/20 morning my browser was acting strange like when I clicked the arrow to go back I had to click numerous times and sometime it wouldn't go back at all.   I was running Kaspersky anti virus at the time but wonder if something malicous got in.   When I shut down the computer and tried to restart it took almost 90 minutes to start .  Once it starts and I click start menu or a program on the desktop the it hangs and I'm able to do nothing. 
 
 
I'm able to work in safe mode and safe mode with networking as normal.
 
As recommended.
 
I downloaded super anti spyware and it found only cookies I got rid of .
 
I also downloaded Adware cleaner which found a number of issues which I deleted.
 
Did a malware bytes scan and said I was clean. Tried to start in normal mode and the same issues.
 
 
I'd appreaciate any assistance. Thanks!!
 
 
I'd also like to add trying to use system restore to go back further than the morning of 9/20 but the box in the lower left is missing.  I just used that weeks ago and the box was there when I replaced a video card.

I'm not sure what causes my BSOD. The errors range from BAD_POOL_HEADER to ntfs.sys to drivers-something.

I am currently running Safe Mode with Networking and things seem stable.

I ran Anti-malware (nothing found), VIPRErescuescanner (nothing), fakereanfix (didn't help), ComboFix (probably made things worse).

Are my drivers up to date? No, probably not, but at this point, I'm scared to change anything else.
Is my windows 7 up to date? No updates installed since Jan 2012, I'm too scared to update anything lest I cause more BSODs.

Honestly, I really don't know where to begin. Every time I try to run my computer in normal mode it restarts and gives me options to run in different safe modes or try normal mode again. My computer runs perfectly fine in safe mode. I haven't added any new programs. It's been this way for some time. I'm currently running sfc /scannow to see if this helps, which I seen it helped on a similar forum on bleepingcomputer. If anyone has anything else to contribute, please feel free.

Hello everyone.  I am trying to fix my mom's computer but have so far been unable.  The laptop is running but it is incredibly slow.  When I first got on it a bunch of pop ops took over the screen.  The computer would randomly go to other sites on it's own.  It would go to a search sight called "clarosearch".  Worst of all, it's incredibly slow.  For example, from the desktop, it take about 45 seconds for the IE window to open when I click on the icon.  It takes about that long to navigate to a page and so fourth. I downloaded and ran a registry cleaner, spybot search and destroy, malwarebytes, and ad-aware.  These found a bunch of problems and cleaned some up, I guess.  The pop ups are gond and so is the strange search site, but the computer is still running just as slow.  It's a paperweight.  Getting another computer isn't really an option right now as my mom is unemployed and we're actually trying to get her resume online but we can't even do that right now with the way the laptop is acting.  I downloaded hijackthis and ran a scan.  Here is the log.    Oh, and as the subject says, the computer runs fast and fine in safe mode.  Please let me know if there is any other info that is needed as I'm not sure what to provide.  Thank you in advance for any help or suggestions you can provide.  Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.4Scan saved at 6:26:57 PM, on 4/26/2014Pl...

Hi,

About two months ago my HP Pavilion 6654y Win7, 8GB, etc.,
started running extremely slowly in Normal Mode. It takes several minutes to respond to mouse clicks, etc.
Basically, it just hangs. But it runs "ok" for a minute or two while still rebooting.

In Safe mode it runs just fine.
I've tried everything I can think of to narrow down the problem, to no avail,
including numerous scans such as AVG, Malwarebytes, Trend Micro Housecall.
Installed UnHackMe to check for rootkits. Even got Reimage and ran it several times.

I've used CCleaner to clean things up, and also to clear out Startup programs

Ever since the update my computer has been extremely slow (will take several minutes to open firefox -or anything for that matter). I booted safe mode and it's running fine.

Hello, the computer I am concerned with is running Windows 7 with IE8, Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I am currently in Safe Mode with Networking without issue.

The owner of the computer says that something happened earlier today while he was online that sounds like some false antivirus popup, but he's unsure. Here are the symptoms in normal mode. Every application, from moving through them to opening and closing them, runs exceptionally slow - one to three minutes to open, at least a minute to open internet pages. I noticed that, when in IE, as the pages are loading the IE page disappears and reappears. I am not very familiar with Windows 7 so I don't know if it is related. The computer seems to be getting slower as the day goes on. CPU usage is very high.

So far, I have disabled many startup items that were unnecessary. I ran CCleaner and cleaned up. MBAM was run in both normal and safe mode, full scans, and found nothing. This is also posted in Viruses and Malware, but I'm unsure where it should live.

If you can help, thanks!! I have to work on the Win7 computer from LogMeIn, and may have to get around in safe mode there.

Hi,

I got win 7 home premium 64 bit on an i3 laptop. My system worked fine until today morning.

The problem is this;
When I boot the system in normal mode, I get to the part where I need to enter my password to login. Once i do that, all I get is a black screen with the mouse pointer that moves about normally. I've waited for the normal desktop environment to appear (ie icons and taskbar) but this doesn't happen (btw, my desktop background color is always black).
The system boots perfectly in safe mode.

Yesterday was the first time in over a year I used utorrent. I used to get the BSOD when I used to use it. I couldn't rectify the problem and hence had stopped using it. It worked fine yesterday though.

Any idea whats happening and how I could fix the problem?

After upgrading to SP2 about a month ago so I could take finals on my computer at school, i noticed that my computer wouldn't boot up in safe mode (i just get a blank dark screen and i can hear the computer doing something but giving it a reasonable amount of time it doesn't progress from that screen). It didn't concern me because normal mode was working and i was able to take my tests. But now I want to get to the bottom of this. I delayed getting sp2 because i had a feeling it would mess up my computer. (i've had other problems too with visual skins but i was able to resolve those).If it matters, i ran a scan of my system with spyware doctor and it said i had a trojan.dialer and needed to boot in safemode to get rid of it.

So a few nights ago, there was a bad storm. I turned the computer off manually (by holding the power button in) and unplugged it before the storm hit. When I turned it back on, I noticed that it was taking around 20 minutes to start up. When it gets to the point where I can open programs, it takes them forever to respond. At first I thought this was related to the storm or the way I turned the computer off. I took out the CMOS battery and let that sit for a while, thinking that might have been a problem, but it wasn't.

At this point, I'm thinking it's coincidental that this happened right when the storm hit and the problem is actually malware or something.

I have the latest version and updates for AVG, but it didn't find anything on a full computer scan. Does it sound like there's something I should be able to do?

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made ... Read more

The thread title gives the exact impression. And it was a good step to enable verifier.

Now disable verifier.

Then ....
Update the SplitCam product: SplitCam free webcam software for video streaming and adding cool webcam effects

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus (MSC) and the touchpad driver SynTPEnh.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Then run the laptop normally. Let us see any further BSOD crash dump after doing it.

A:BSOD when trying to boot in normal mode, safe mode works fine

You may need to run SFC up to 3 times for it to have a chance to repair all files.

If it won't then you can consider a Repair Install.

However be aware that factory preinstalled Win7 is one of the worst possible installs of Win7 one can have, larded with bloatware and duplicate utilties that intefere with better versions built into Win7. So I would strongly consider doing the vastly superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If you decide to try to repair you can also capture the BSOD file and post it up for one of our BSOD analysts as shown here: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 7 Forums

I had run my Anti-Virus (Avast ) and it found nothing,
I just now opened it (in safe mode) to obtain the official name/version and found it to display a large red banner declaring I am unprotected and the Avast service turned off.
None of those controls on that panel work 
 
Am assuming some infection did this as I did not turn it off!

A:Fine in Safe mode, but in normal mode, icons and Startmenu don't work

Have you performed a System Restore recently?
 
Download your version of Avast, but don't install it yet.
 
With the computer offline use the Avast uninstall utility to uninstall your current installation.
 
Once you have uninstalled the old version, install the version you downloaded.

My speedtest.net performance is 30 Mbps download, and between 0.3 and 2.0 Mbps upload. If I start in safe mode with netorking, I get download and upload speeds of 25-30, my contracted speeds. Obviously, something loading in the full mode interferes with upload speed. I have tried restarting in safe mode with all of the items checked in the services and programs tabs in msconfig, and still get excellent up and download speeds. How can I figure out what is interfering with my upload speed in normal mode, but not in safe mode?

A:Poor upload speed in normal mode, fine in safe mode

Use msconfig to determine what is causing the problem

How to use msconfig in Windows 7

Click on Start then Run, type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Startup tab, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Reboot and see if it runs better.
If yes then use msconfig to enable several items at a time till you find the culprit.

If no, start msconfig and click on the Services tab.
Check the Hide All Microsoft Services box, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Again, do a regular boot, see if it runs normal.
If yes then use msconfig to enable services till you find the culprit.

Once you've found the culprit, uninstall it or find out how to eliminate it from your system. Simply disabling it in msconfig is a temporary fix at best.
Enable everything else you disabled.

Everytime i open my pc up in normal mode, it seems to restart itself within a few seconds to a few minutes, It tends to happen when i open up a program like Chrome. I',m currently on safe mode with networking and have done registry cleaners, updated video card drivers and looked for viruses, yet nothing has seemed wrong, I've also done a system restore to when my pc was working fine, but it still was happening, I saw on another post here that i should post my msinfo32 so here you go, Thanks.

I have a computer that would not see the hard drive a few days ago. Got a new hard drive and did a clean install of windows and restored the rest of the files with Carbonite. A few days later the computer would not boot into windows again. So this time i reformatted the new drive and stuck it into an identical PC I had.

Now its been 3 days and the computer started to run EXTREMELY slow after booting up. In safe mode its perfectly fine. I have ran multiple virus scans from malware bytes, avast and superantispyware, nothing found.

After some trial and error with turning services off I found that if i disable the local area connection in safe mode then boot into windows normally it runs fine(without the internet connection of course). I have brought the PC to a different location and even put the hard drive in the original computer and it is still having the same issue.

Any ideas on what i can try?

A:Running slow with network connection enabled, runs fine in Safe mode

Welcome !
Is the PC very slow right away after a cold boot or does it happen over a certain amount of time?

Immediately after a Cold Boot launch Process Explorer (if you have a short list,
click "Show Processes From All Users" the right most option in the top bar):
Arrange "Working Set" (by clicking on the top of that column) Take a screenshot.
Arrange "Private Bytes" (by clicking on the top of that column) Take a screenshot.
Arrange "CPU" (by clicking on the top of that column) Take a screenshot.

After 30 minutes (or the maximum amount the system hold its self together):
Arrange "Working Set" (by clicking on the top of that column) Take a screenshot.
Arrange "Private Bytes" (by clicking on the top of that column) Take a screenshot.
Arrange "CPU" (by clicking on the top of that column) Take a screenshot.

Hello everyone. I have a Compaq SR1954NX Desktop computer that I recently reformatted and installed Windows XP Pro SP3 on. After installing some games and applications, a few days later I shut the computer off for the night. Upon the next morning my USB Mouse, a Creative Fatal1ty 1010, stopped working on it. If I unplugged it and plugged it in a different USB port, it would say "Found device, Creative Fatal1ty Mouse, Your Device is now ready to use." However it still would not do anything. However, upon entering safe mode, it works fine.

I reformatted after this, as I thought it was my mistake, and had only installed one or two small games. However, it just happened again.

Can anyone here help me with this? Thanks in advance.

I started having said problem during virus removal.
I had removed multiple virus via malware, SAS, aSquare, combofix, and, I could not connect to any websites.
Via my wireless connection, windows said my signal strength was good and it was connected to the wireless network.
I tried pinging different websites like yahoo.com, google.com, etc and all my requests timed out.

So I decided to trouble shoot.
Booting into safe mode w/ networking worked fine. I was able to ping and connect to websites via Internet Explorer.
I ran SpybotS&D, and it removed a win32.agent and some sort of malware that had firewall in the name... forgot exactly what it was, and I don't have the log on hand.
Anyways, after this removal I tried again to ping website like yahoo.com, google.com, etc, and the ping worked fine.
However, I still could not connect to any websites via Internet Explorer. I tried reinstalling IE, but its the same story.
During this whole process, I have been able to use Internet Explorer succesfully only in safe mode.

Any ideas? I doubt it is a virus directly causing my problems. It's had a thorough cleaning. Maybe some left over wreckage?
I doubt its a firewall issue. CA's personal firewall is installed on the machine. I know CA antivirus is running in safe mode, I'm not so sure if the firewall does or not. I'm assuming it does.
I don't know where to even start on this. Any help would be appreciated.

2 days ago my computer randomly froze up when I had a few chrome windows open and a few other applications. The mouse can move around but nothing on the screen is responsive. I figured it was a one time thing and forced shut down and rebooted. It again froze up about 3 minutes later and now every time I use it it freezes from within a few minutes of logging in to up to an hour. Even if I just log in and don't touch anything it will freeze at some point in time. Last night I used it for 6 hours and thought everything was fixed but when I woke up it was again frozen. It also seems to be lagging a little when opening new tabs and applications which it never did. It works fine in safe mode and stayed on for over 24 hours with no problems.

I have a HP Pavilion A6352c desktop pc. I have recently installed a clean copy on win 7. I have listed the issue I am having below. I hope you can assist me in getting this system to a stable state.

1. System locks up running in Normal Mode - I will take about 3 minutes before the entire system locks up, I have to do a hard shutdown when this happens. I can start the system in Normal mode, but only if I use the diagnostic startup option in MSConfig. I can enable some services, but I am in the process of trying to figure out which one is making it lockup.

2. The system will run fine under safe mode with networking and such. I have the normal startup option in msconfig enabled in safe mode and no issue except it's in Safe Mode!

A:Systems runs in safe mode - Normal mode locks up

The dumps are all over the map, but they all are having issues in amdk8.sys (the OS's CPU driver). What's really interesting is one of these dumps looks almost exactly the same as the issue that is documented in KB 975530, but that's for Intel CPUs running hyper-v. However, you *are* running into a watchdog timeout on the CPU (it's causing other drivers to crash and confuse analyze, but it's not that code's fault that the CPU stopped processing it's requests). This means you might have a bum core on that CPU when entering/exiting C-states. Try running this:
reg add HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Processor /v Capabilities /t REG_DWORD /d 0x0007e066

Reboot, and see if it still causes problems in regular boot mode. Either way, you probably need to have that CPU looked at as a potential bad part.

Hi
I have Thinkpad T43, with windows XP professional.

Since few days whenever i launched my ATI catalyst control center I would get BSOD and laptop will boot automatically and then everything would be fine.

Then while browsing my wife downloaded some media player exe, and since then my IE was redirecting to unknown sites (xalab etc) not to mention various ad pop-ups. One of the online video sites gave a message that I have TROJ/Rustok-N. (Also I would like to mention since couple of months my System Restore was not working although everything else was working fine)

I ran spybot, malawarebytes, trojanremover and removed whatever was reported. But the problem persisted, so I renewed my Norton Internet Security (actually got Norton 360), ran scans but it couldnt find anything.

Then I booted in safe mode and ran all these again, last thing I remember trojanremover prompted to remove something like sv~.exe and i did, when i restarted the system in normal mode I got BSOD and laptop rebooted, I disabled automatic restart on failure but it keeps on doing that.

I then went to Access IBM and restored by configuration which brings back the system files to previous state (the most latest point available was 07/2006)

Hello guys,
you are my last hope! I do not know what I am supposed to do anymore, I spent the last 8hours looking on the net what I could do. I am a computer noob and have little experience with computers at all.

Here's my problem. My laptop doesn't start anymore. The first thing I noticed on my boot screen were four parallel vertical lines of dots, then four parallel lines of vertical dashes then dots again and so on. This is in the background from the time when I start my samsung R70, even on the boot screen, as well as on the windows vista loading screen (these little boxes floating from right to left...). These really weird dots are however NOT present in the DOs menu and neither is it after you pressed F8 to boot in safe mode. They are also NOT present in safe mode that means they disappear after the boot screen and are not evident on the black background of the safe mode desktop.
However at the time when the windows vista sign is supposed to flash up and you'd be prompted to enter your password (this is when I start it normally), nothing happens and a greyish-white screen comes up, after which the system just restarts and the whole process happens again (including the dots mentioned earlier). I can run the laptop in safe mode, in fact I am running it in safe mode with network drivers right now to type this, but I cannot, under any circumstances, run it in normal mode. When I start it in safe mode I get the following notice:

Hi -

The BSOD bugcheck (STOP error) = 0x50 = invalid memory referenced

As you said - no service packs installed, which is probably one of the problems here. You need to see if you can re-install Windows and then see if it is stable or not.

I do recommend another re-install of Vista using the manufacturer's (OEM) recovery DVD. This must be the first item on the "to do" list. Contact your father or the system manufacturer and obtain the Vista recovery DVDs. Do you have a recovery partition? Many do. Usually, the key to invoke the recovery partition if F10 - during boot-up.

Two other options until your Vista DVDs arrive from your father -
1. Download and burn Server 2008 - it has the same build as Vista, with a few features that have been disabled. It is a trial offer that can be renewed up to 240 days - http:/... Read more

Hi,

I'm sorry to post as usually I can solve such problems but I'm a a loss.

1) My PC started up this morning and I can only boot into safemode. I turned on non gui boot and the loading list is the same as for same mode as it is for normal boot.
2) I grabbed the windows disk and tried the repair option. Nothing wsas detected and when I tried to restore to a previous point no restore points were available - very odd!
3) I enabled the sames services as safe mode and rebooted and again no luck. I also disabled all startup items.

I'm left with a possible driver issue but I remember in XP you used to be able to load them one by one - can't find that anymore....

Normally when I get this far down I give up and re-install, it's just that this PC has so much on it I know it's a few working days of setting it up again and further hours installing stuff as I'll miss things. The machine runs SQL server, Vsiaul Studio, full Adobe suite, SolidWorks, CorelDraw, sheduled tasks - the list goes on and on. Note when I click on Windows Update nothing happens, I've looked at the log and it looks like a windows media player updated happened 8 days ago but the machine has been re-booted since then.

It works in SafeMode so ther must be a solution but I'm out of my depth and wondered if anyone had any ideas

Hello,
 
OS : WIndows XP SP3
 
My computer (actually on loan from my mother in law!) is taking ages to start and when it does, it is very slow to respond and even freezes. Eventually an Avast alert pops up and tells me it detected a rootkit called "Catchme". I didn't try to delete it, I don't know if I should have or even if Avast was right.
The PC was already slow when I first got it. I ran Malwarebytes before and it found a trojan.agent that was apparently deleted. I also ran JRT that found bad things too (tell me if you need the log).
When I run in Safe mode, the PC seems OK, more responsive.
 
Anyone to help me?
 
Thank you.

Hi,
 
I turned PC on this morning, it was still very slow to start, but the Avast message about the rootkit didn't come up this time! PC was still slow to respond though.
I decided to run AdwCleaner (saved on to USB key from my laptop and copied then on to the PC) just to see and it found 9 "bad" registry keys. I cleaned them and restarted the PC as prompted. PC seems a bit faster to repond now. I also ran Malwarebytes (quick scan) which didn't find anything.
Still think something is not right, can somebody help me check for rootkit or anything else please? Thank you

I just did a clean re-install of Vista x64 on a new hard drive (old drive crashed). Here's the problem:

Using my ISP (Roadrunner Carolinas) speed test site; I get around 200 to 400 kbps download speeds using IE in normal mode. If I boot to Safe Mode, I get around 3500 to 4500 kbps, which is what it should be (this is what I used to get in normal mode before I re-installed Vista).

Running the same speed test with Firefox, I get around 1500 to 2000 kbps in normal mode, but if I try to download a file it transfers at only the 200 to 400 kbsp rate (if I'm lucky).

Here's more detail about the system and what I've done so far:

Installed all updates including SP2.
Using Windows Firewall, no anti-virus.
Updated network drivers directly from NVidia (Chipset is nForce750i)
Updated graphics card drivers directly from NVidia
Disabled all LAN protocols except for Client for Microsoft Networks and IPv4
Connected via ethernet cable directly to cable modem, no router.
I've deliberately refrained from loading anything but the basics until I can get this sorted out.

This really the second clean install I've done in 24 hrs. After the first one, I upgraded and added a lot of software and add-ons before I figured out the connection problem; so I decided the easiest fix would be to re-format and start over, checking each step to see what caused the slow-down. Unfortunately once I did the second clean install I tested right away and I had the connection problem from the get-go. Since then... Read more

Hi, this is my first post on SevenForums.

My internet speed is really slow. I'm lucky if I can reach 1Mbps when I start up Normally. However, when I start up in Safe Mode with Networking I can reach 12Mbps.

The computer is fairly old (8/9 years old maybe) and I've only just upgraded from XP to Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit. When I was running XP I connected to my router using a Linksys USB wireless network adapter. After upgrading to Windows 7 I couldn't use the Linksys anymore as I couldn't find any drivers so I installed a Belkin Desktop PCI Card F5D5000. I managed to connect to the internet straight away and this is when I first noticed the slow speed. I've updated the drivers directly from the Belkin site but it hasn't improved the speed .

I've tried connecting to the same router using WiFi on a laptop and the internet speed is fine (14Mbps). I contacted my ISP Talk Talk and asked them to test the connection but they didn't find any faults with either the line or hardware.

I've also tried switching off my Anti-Virus program but this doesn't make a difference either.

Could anything else be slowing the internet down? Any ideas would greatly appreciated.

A:Very slow internet in normal mode but fast in Safe mode

Hi Dave, and welcome to SevenForums!

I'm not an expert in this area but I suggest you try a Clean Boot as next step. You disable all non-MS services and reboot. If that works you can enable one service at a time to find out if it's a specific service that is causing the slow Internet.
How to perform a clean boot in Windows
Clean Boot assumes the problem is not with Windows itself but a 3rd party product or conflict, while Safe Mode loads minimum necessary drivers etc and without any start up programs.

It could also be caused by malware, that in Safe Mode isn't allowed to start during normal autostart procedures. So scan with a couple of good antivirus/antimalware products, for example Malwarebytes | Free Anti-Malware & Internet Security Software

The registry cleaner probably removed things that some startup programs needed, so now they get stuck and slow. Considering the problem and that you had to create a new user profile, I'd probably just reinstall windows fresh. (But maybe some other people have ideas for fixing it instead)

Helllo,

My computer runs fine in safe mode but turns off randomly when run in normal mode no blue screens it just turns off.. have tried system restore and sometimes this cures the problem for a few days but the computer starts turning itself off again.

Thank you

2.4 Ghz Intel Core 2 Quad
Motherboard: ASUSTeK P5N-E SLI1.XX

A:Computer runs fine in safe mode but...

Have you checked your power settings in control panel ? My Vista desktop machine came with settings to shut off hard drives after 30 minutes of no activity.

I was browsing the internet the other day when I clicked on a link and my computer shut down. I immediately knew it was a bad link. My computer rebooted and it wouldn't let me on IE after that at all. I then did a restore to the previous day. I was about to get online so I went and downloaded Kaspersky IS and scanned my computer. My laptop messed up and rebooted itself. Then got Anti-Malware Bytes in Safe mode and ran a scan, still had issues Kaspersky not running right and my computer freezing after just a couple of minutes. Went back and did a restore again to the same spot and this time said forget Kaspersky and jsut did AMWB. It showed my computer is clean, yet about 2 minutes after booting, my computer reboots and the safe mode option pops up. I can run ok in safe mode but cannot get it to work in normal mode. I did trend micros housecall and another online scanner and all say my computer is clean. Yet, when I start IE, I am redirected on every link I click to scour..... or another site with links on it. Any help is greatly appreciated, as well as a recommendation for a better Anti-virus. I jsut had McAfree that came with this laptop. Thanks!
