Slow, slower...XP suggested I try here

Q: Slow, slower...XP suggested I try here

Everything was running fast and fine, and then "bam", things started slowing down. Going from page to page is like dialup. I have XP Home and from time to time when one user logs off, the screen goes black and we have to turn off and restart. I have run Spybot, Norton, CWShredder, etc. I also checked BlackViper, but I would rather have someone take a look a my Hijack before diving into my registry. The only thing I have installed in the last 3 weeks was the America's Army game. I uninstalled two days later.

Thanks,
Freakzilla

Preferred Solution: Slow, slower...XP suggested I try here

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 have a problem with my Hitachi 3tb duo pro drive external hard drive. As i put more files it seems to get slower in one folder. An example is today, the access speed to find a patients name in it ( about 6k folders) would take about 30 secs. Before that it would only take 10 seconds and when i had about 4k folders it was pretty instantaneous. I've tried defrag, disk clean up, disabling background processes but I do not know how to solve this problem. Is the problem is too many subfolders in one folder? Or is there a solution to make it fast enough as I first started to use it. Yesturday it was not that bad but when i started today, it was unbearable. ANy feedback is appreciated thx.

A:Extkernal hard drive slow access speeds getting slower and slower

Well it depends how many loose files are in the folder. For instance say I have 10,000 pictures in one folder and that folder when I open it is taken for ever to load cause it is trying to cache all the contents and index all those files that are contained in it. If I go into that particular folder and create more folders lets say 10 folders, then place 1000 pictures in each folder then it will load a lot faster cause there not so many files in one folder to cache and index. Try and keep you files down to a moderate number of files inside the folders. It's like trying to stuff a bunch of paper inside a manilla folder it can only hold so many before it doesn't function any more....

Also most USB drives go idle and stop spinning after about 15 minutes usually, you can use the software that came with the drive to configure the usb to spin all the time. A 3tb drive is huge and I would consider partitioning the drive to 3 separate partitions of 1tb each that would speed things up considerably. Also 2tb is all that windows will see on a MBR partition if you want to keep it at 3tb then you will have to set it at a GPT (GUI Partition Table) for it to be used correctly in Windows 7.

Follow this tutorial on how to change the partition table from mbr to gpt:

Convert MBR Disk to GPT Disk

I am ready to try the SDfix again...Problem is I can not get into Safe Mode. Keeps getting hung up on a process as it is listing all. I will write it down next time, It may help someone explain it to me.

Also What setting (& where can I locate it) may cause my WMP 11 to make my speakers sound busted? I have installed a new sound card (not the prob). I have installed at least 10 different media players this week to just see what I liked. In all of those the sound was fine. Songbird, Winamp,VLC, Itunes, Monkey,Foobar2000, K-lite, Qtime, MusicMatch & a few others. I really like the layout and fuction of WMP 11. Any Suggestions on how to fix my sound problem. Any thoughts on GOM Player, SMplayer, KMPlayer, AIMP 2,...I must have ripping & burning ability. I have read good things about AIMP2 think I will try it tonight.

My computer has been running slow for about a month now and I can't figure out why. I have to restart my computer to make it run normally and then after a little bit it just slows down again.

Some things I have tried to fix this problem:

I have updated all my drivers.

I have cleaned the hard drive

I have defragged the disk

I have defragged and cleaned up registry errors

I have scanned my computer with malawarebytes and ESETnod and have used combofix

I have opened the computer case and cleaned it out

Still after all these things my computer still slows down and has to be restarted all the time.
Attached is my system specs.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Computer running slow....have tried all suggested solutions

1) What do you mean you "cleaned the hard drive"?
2) What do you mean you "cleaned up registry errors?
3) What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

My first post and I have read all the rules and guideline and the "Preparation before sending log", so I will do best I can. Under Task Manager I have always averaged running processes around 26-31. Now suddenly it runs about 41-46 open processes. I have ran all the programs you recommended before sending this. I also run CCleaner, Windows defender, Spybot S&D and Ad-Aware regularly. No changes.Not sure of info you need so this may not be important...but here goes...I have no games downloaded or installed, just about 10 songs from WalMart and maybe 400 photos under MY PICTURES.

Hello cackle61 and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I do not see any signs of viruses or malware in the log. There are a couple of housekeeping items we could fix but let's try something else first.

Perform a System Restore and restore the system to a point before the problems started. Running multiple registry repair programs has probably corrupted the registry, especially since none of them can complete a scan any longer. Get rid of all of them but 1 and just stick with that one.

Let me know what happens.

Also when I go to my add remove programs it takes a long long time for the list to populate....I do play a lot of games so there are a lot on my pc. I can't think of anything else that would cause this but here's my HJT .
Thanks Guys. Hope to hear back.
Here's my file:

I have an Dell Inspiron 630m laptop running Windows XP Home SP3 w/ 1.73 gHz & 504 MB of RAM. I have 7 GB of space left on my 40 GB harddrive. I tells me I do not need to defrag. My computer has been slowly getting slower when it comes to opening new programs, surfing the web, etc... I do not have any issues with pop-ups or other actions that occur on their own. I have eliminated unnecessary programs at start-up. This helped, but did not solve the problem. I have run SuperAntiSpyware abd McAfee scans with no results. Below is my HJT Log. I hope this is helpful info. If anyone needs more info, I will be happy to provide it. Thanks in advance for your help.

Additional info:

My computer has not shut down because of the problem, but I have shut it down manually because it seems to lock-up after waiting a couple of minutes for it to perform a task. Are there any other system scans I should run? Is my available harddrive capacity contributing to the problem?

Use the programs below to find adware and malware. If you haven't run a scan using MBAM....do that, too.
 
Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the
Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.
After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.
CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download
 
Once MBAM opens, when it says Your databases are out of date, click the Fix Now button.
Click the Settings tab at the top, and then in the left column, select Detections and Protections, and if not already checked place a checkmark in the selection box for Scan for rootkits.
Click the Scan tab at the top of the program window, select Threat Scan and click the Scan Now button.
If you receive a message that updates are available, click the Update Now button (the update will be downloaded, installed, and the scan will start).
The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
If potential threats are detected, ensure that Quarantine is selected as the Action for all the listed items, and click the Apply Actions button.
While still on the Scan tab, click the link for View detailed log, and in the window that opens click the Export button, select Text file (*.txt), and save the log to your Desktop.

Hello, and welcome to TSF!

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. If you have Windows XP, the search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Hello there,

I've noticed my comp has been a bit slower of late mostly not just for the net, but for opening programmes as well - even the 'favourites' list suddenly takes ages to load. Even programmes as basic as notepad seem affected. But the main issue is my 'clean disc' won't work. It got about a third of the way through and stopped, now it won't open at all.

I have AVG and ZoneAlarm running. Tried Spybot and Adaware, nothing. Tried Housecall, no viruses. Tried Pitstop, which said I needed to defrag, I was able to do that but I still can't clean the disc and the comp is getting slower and slower (and now refuses to even display google).

I've also noticed ZoneAlarm has been raising a lot more notifications than usual, but never to a named destination. The last ISP was 194.65.100.117NS.

Here is a HJT log from a few minutes ago, hope it shows something useful.

Good day out there, I would really appreciate any help anyone could give me on the problems I'm having with my HP laptop that I lent to my husband's children. When I first got it back it was slow, but as time has gone by it's so slow now that sometimes it can't keep up with my typing.
As I was looking at other people's posts about slow computers w/ high CPU usage (mine is also showing that), I read about looking at the task manager and disabling apps that I'm not using, that take up a lot of memory. As I was doing this and looking for other things I could get rid of I noticed that my D drive is almost full. !7.2 GB is full and 2.49 GB is left I have attached a print screen of the the files that were saved on it. Are they supposed to be saved there and if not is this what's causing my problems? If they're not supposed to be there, is there any way to get them off? Below is my system info. Thanx for any help.

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top o...

Hi everyone.
A few months ago my computer just slowed down completely. It takes over 10 mins. to open outlook express and other apps. Thinking it was a virus that my antivirus programs couldn't pick up I posted a thead in the HJT Forum. After a couple of weeks back and forth with an analyst, it was determined that my computer was infact clear of any malware. Since his efforts could not improve the performance of my pc, he directed me here. The only change I had made to my computer since is an upgrade to SP2.
To assist you I will include a link to my last thread.

Just thought I point this out as it may be contributing to your system slowness.


Quote:




Percentage of Memory in Use: 83%
Physical Memory (total/avail): 479.53 MiB / 79.09 MiB
Pagefile Memory (total/avail): 1124.56 MiB / 781.93 MiB

C: is Fixed (NTFS) - 13.97 GiB total, 2.03 GiB free.
D: is Fixed (NTFS) - 167.33 GiB total, 33.2 GiB free.




Your using up 83% of your memory, which is ALOT. Also, your primary Hard Drive has 2 GB left on it, which is cutting it close for space. I prefer to leave 30-40% free space, so that the hard drive can perform better.

Also, if you want to free up some more resources I would disable programs from startup up like: BitTorrent & AVG Anti-Spyware.

You can easily call upon them at anytime. No need for them to always be running.

To disable programs from startup:

Start > Run > type msconfig > Click OK
-- Click the Startup tab
-- Look for BitTorrent and uncheck the box

Hi everyone!
Recently and all of a sudden my computer slowed down to a snails pace. It literally takes 10 minutes to open Outlook Express. The only way to do anything effectively is to operate in safe mode. I ran many different anti-virus progams, etc. (one at a time, installing and uninstalling each after use, not to have too many progams working against each other). Each program found many problems and fixed them. Now my computer shows clear of malware, but it sure doesn't act that way. Sometimes I get a message that says my computer is low on virtual memory. What could it be? I really hope you can help. Here is my HJT logfile while running in normal mode:

Hello and welcome to TSF

Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here to your desktop. Double click the exe file.
If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO, then use the following settings for a more complete scan.



Click the image to enlarge it


In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ... Sections
IAT/EAT
Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
Show All (don't miss this one)

Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and attach it in your reply.

**Caution**
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries



Please note that the forum is very busy and if I don't hear from you within three days this thread will be closed.

I know what you're going to say, Spyware and Virus scan, I already have with AVG 8.0 and with SuperAntiSpyware.
It's so slow. When I play a Two-Dimensional game like MAPLE STORY. I lag. And my specs are NOT bad...I have a GOOD computer..well it use to be. But it shouldn't be THIS slow.
and it HAS been faster before.
I reformatted around a couple months ago.

It has had some problems in the past with overheating, and whenever I turn on my computer, it says..."Your computer has shutdown from overheating, Check your Mother Board, Press F1 to bypass." But...my computer HASN'T shutdown from overheating..it just says that..Which is relatively new.
I literally can't do **** with this computer...and I can't afford a new one right now. 100%CPU Usage is almost NORMAL now. Watching videos on YouTube makes it 100% too.

I am in rural area with no DSL or cable.

My dialup connection has always been slow but steady (26.4 kbps) until about a month ago. My wife uses ebay and when it takes over 5 minutes to load the main page she gets upset.

My connection still says 26.4 but the speed has gotten painfully slow.
Here is what I have tried (without improving on my speed):
-Repaced old USR 56k modem with new USR 56k and reinstalled with current drivers.
-Discovered had a trojan, did fresh install of windows (reformated HD).
-Switched from AOL to SBC-Yahoo. (did another fresh install of windows)
-Had SBC check phone lines. They have told me some inconsistant information. When they do a line check (with phone and computer unplugged) I have been told there is a short. They have done some repairs, rechecked and found a short, repaired and found it OK. They ran a shielded wire from road to my house.
-checked hosts file, only one entry for localhost

-Not sure what this tells me, but when I "ping www.ebay.com", it says:
"Pinging hp-core.ebay.com (66.135.193.124)...
request timedout
4 packets lost

I can ping techspot.com with no lost packets and avg time 179ms.

-tracert www.ebay.com takes about 5 hops before it timesout.

I don't know if the phone lines.the isp or my computer are the problem. I plan to have SBC recheck lines, I am thinking of going to circuit city and buying a new computer just to see if I get a better connection with new machine.

A:Dialup connection was slow - now slower?

This kind of problem certainly indicates a phone line quality problem. I sometimes get 56kps on a modem but it can drop to 33kbps sometimes.

The start up takes nearly ten minutes and the time lag between program activation and actual start up is agonizing. I am really confused.No error codes. I have run the following AV AS and other scans as suggested: AdAware, SpyBot, BitDefender,RootKit_Detective, AVG AV (Free), and AVG AntiMalware. All showed negative results.

Hello, I have a problem. I am having some issues with my laptop which is not 1 year old. The system is very slow. On battery, the computer is almost unusable. I really feel the computer is infected somehow with some kind of malware/spyware software. I want a professional to read my logs. I did all the scan required (GMER and DDS). I really hope to have an answer asap.
