RELEVANCY SCORE 200
Preferred Solution: Internet slow, cant use google chrome anymore. And whole system is very slow now

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.)

RELEVANCY SCORE 84.8

do not know how to revive the lost data and checked for suspicious malware also.

While browsing on any site, Chrome freezes for seconds and despite using CCleaner and other scans, with nothing coming up as bad, I can not seem to browse as I did a few weeks ago. My entire system seems to be running slowly. Thanks.

Right so lately the internet has been going slow and Chrome and Opera has also been a bit laggy especially when I visit sites like Facebook and Youtube, just laggy and slow. Also used CCLeaner but still the same.

A:Google Chrome, Opera Lag, and Internet Slow on Windows 7

What is the manufacturer of modem & router you have, along with their model numbers.  How are you connecting to the connection, when you are seeing these slow load times?  Who is your ISP?  What are your speeds to the nearest testing server to you at either your ISP speedtest site, or speedtest.net?

Hi all,
Well I described in details in the above fields what exactly happened and what I tried to do.

Right now I am on this pc, using MS edge, and I have internet and all seems fine. But all is not fine - clearly. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling chrome by the way. I reset browser settings several times and I have no extensions other than google's own (google docs, google sheets etc)
So I am wondering, how to fix this.
If I scan, every program says there is nothing on my pc. But If I use chrome, things just die (after quite some time). I'm considering just living w/o chrome but I mean - how can this not be fixable

Sorry for the long texts - I really searched this forum and tried all I could find. But I just can't solve this on my own it seems. Help is very appreciated.

Hello,
Fix with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

This fix was created for this user for use on that particular machine.
Running it on another one may cause damage and render the system unstable. ​
Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop:

Both files, FRST and fixlist.txt have to be in the same location or the fix will not work!
Right-click on icon and select Run as Administrator to start the tool.
(XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
Press the Fix button just once and wait.
If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
When finishes FRST will generate a log on the Desktop, called Fixlog.txt.

Please attach it to your reply.

I know it's malware, and from reading the forums I didn't run Comboware (i think that was the name) because the previous issue involved Symantec AV protection. I use AVG, Ad-Aware and Malwarebytes on this machine so didn't use previous advice. BTW, love you guys and use bleepingcomputer all the time to check startup programs. Thank you!

Hey, recently I installed a codec for windows media player but I think it has turned out dodgy.
At first it started out that whenever I clicked a Google link, it would redirect to random websites.
Then when I tried to go on the Spybot website it re-directed to STOPzilla
I then noticed that my antivirus wouldn't update either (Bitdefender Total Security 2009 on windows xp home)
I ran Malwarebytes and let it clean everything and that consequently got rid of the redirecting of pages.
However the loading of webpages is severely slower to how it was before.
Originally there was a hijacking of the userinit.exe reistry file in the WindowNT>Current version>winlogon>userinit.exe
where ,C:\WINDOWS\system32\oembios.exe, had been added, i consequently deleted this and furthermore this solved the redirection but still didn't solve the slowness or the failing to load of spybot.
I tried to do a system restore however after the choosing the date screen I was unable to click the 'next' button.
This problem is really annoying and obviously needs sorting as soon as possible to prevent the system getting further infected.
I managed to get malwarebytes running through renaming the MBAM.exe file to trick the virus however after allowing it to delete everything like suggested elsewhere it now comes up clean however there's still a problem.
I have included my DDS log for your analysis .

Hello all,
My computer has recently become infected. I've scanned with Malwarebyte's Antimalware, Norton Internet Security, and SuperAntiSpyware. Norton didn't show any results, but Antimalware and Superantispyware both removed a decent amount of items, however I do not think my computer is entirely clean. Whenever I open Firefox, if it even opens, all of my google searches get redirected to different sites. The only site I remember being directed to was zanuga.com, but there were others. This also happens on IE8. I've tried opening Firefox in safemode, and I get the same redirects. I've posted my HiJack This log below.

Oh, and also, I've noticed the creation of HelpAssistant and HelpAssistant.desktop folders in my Documents and Settings directory.

Happy Holidays,

Google Chrome sometimes gets so slow it is unusable. Lots of folks have offered help for the problem, but I have one good answer.I tried everything. Virus scans. Registry scans. Uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome. Cleared browsing data. Nothing worked. Then....Based on a tip from Google forums, I checked my userdata folder for Chrome. Guess what I found. There were about 65000 zero sized tmp files in the folder. The directory had been maxed out! There were also 65000+ tmp files in the folder above it. I deleted the entire folder(s), and uninstalled Chrome. Then I installed Chrome again from the website. Bingo! Fast Chrome!So after doing all the stuff I did, check out the userdata folders for Chrome and see if you don't have the same problem. The locations of the folders in Win XP areC:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default andC:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User DataThose are the locations where I found the tmp files. Vista (yuck!) and Win7 will have similar locations. Check it out.A few of my clients (I'm a computer guy) had similar problems, and I fixed it the same way. I don't know what causes it. I only know how to fix it.This also fixes the 'Google Chrome didn't shut down correctly' problem.*Edit: Moved topic from Am I infected? ... Read more

Hi guys.

I've been using Chrome for a long time, but I've never had this problem before.
Today it suddenly started to be really slow. Just entering a website takes a lot of time, but it hasn't got anything to do with my internet connection, which is around 8-10 Mbit on a wireless connection.
I have the "Internet Explorer" add-on for Chrome (Which allows me to open a website in Explorer in a tab in Chrome), and when I use that, the speed is normal again. Also, if I use regular Explorer, it works just fine.

I know the first obvious thing would be to reinstall Chrome, but I wanted to hear from you guys first, because I don't want to reinstall all my add-ons and redo all the settings if it's not necessary.

Thank you!

The trouble started with google chrome (gc), which is my default browser. The blue roller/throbber kept coming up along with a notice "waiting for cache". I took various advice but none of it worked and the system (browser and W7) then began to close and re-open of it's own accord.

Next i attempted to switch to IE, which is on my desktop, but at first this "switch" was refused. Eventually, i managed to get an IE taskbar on a gc "page". At first, this was a Bing browser but now it merely seems to be IE.

Opening the browser takes up to 5-10 mins, and i might have to do it twice, and there are certain site/areas, such as youtube, that are very spotty.

I remember it first starting to play up when i clicked on a tag, and then in quick succession clicked on two more tags without giving time for the first tag to open - then again, perhaps thats irrelevant, and mere coincidence.

I don't think it was this slow when I installed Windows 10 back in August, but along the way something definitely happened that made it be this slow. Allow me to elaborate.

If I use Microsoft Edge, for example, pages load faster, videos on YouTube load faster and they don't freeze, when viewing images the process is faster, pages don't freeze when I try to scroll through them, etc... This only happens during the first minute or two of entering a page, though. So it's essentially the loading process of the page that is far slower than what it used to be.

Could this have anything to do with my internet speed? Microsoft Edge performs just fine, so that would suggest otherwise, but I'm not completely sure.

When I'm running heavy stuff such as games, both Chrome AND Edge become even slower, so Edge has issues too? Though I suppose that's to be expected, right? I mean, the system won't perform as flawlessly if we're running intensive apps, right? Not that mine's total crap, but it's not top of the line, either.

Still, the issue here is that Chrome runs like crap even when I'm not running anything in the background. With games and all, it's kind of expected, but without them running, Chrome shouldn't behave like this if Edge runs so smoothly.

What do you guys think it is? What should I do?

Thank you.

i have 70 download and a 40 upload it downloads really slow? any help appreciated
 

A:Download speed on Google Chrome is slow

RE: download speed on google crome is slow

Assuming you are not infected (if you think you are, ask for help in the infected section), I'd recommend a complete reinstall of Chrome. If you don't want to dig around and remove the remnants, you could first install Revo Uninstaller Free, and run it on at least the Moderate setting, which should remove leftovers in ProgramData (a hidden folder in the main C: folder) and AppData (a hidden folder in your user folder) and the registry keys.

It shouldn't be that slow for download. But as an example, I know at my house Firefox loads pages way faster than Chrome or Safari or IE, but that might be more with my connection here. Download speed is about the same across the board though. I have a 15 down connection here.

The other day a random website popped up javasafeupdate.com and wanted me to "update my Java"..  It didn't look trust worthy so I tried to close out, but it wouldn't let me.  Eventually I had to end task on Chrome.  For the next couple of days I kept getting popups from several different websites including Vube.com and a few others.  I have Malwarebytes Pro installed, but it's not finding anything.  I installed HiJack this which found a few things, but I'm still having an issue with Chrome.  When it opens it takes longer to go to my homepage (google.com).  Also, before I opened this thread I opened Chrome and javasafeupdate.com opened again.  I've been using bleepingcomputers for years and I'll admit I already ran a few of the tools in hopes of resolving this issue on my own.  I'll NOT run anything else until directed.  Thanks..

A question, 
 
We use google chrome as our default internet browser. While it is loading up in the lower left hand of the window we see the text lines say resolving host then establishing secure connection now this does take some time before the site comes up - Do I have a problem? My wife always asks "why does it say waiting on yahoo" as just an example. I told her it was a network traffic issue. Just like a little help on this. 

A:When using google chrome establishing secure connection slow

Delays such as you describe...I just went through a spell with such (Firefox).
 
Refreshing the browser (or resetting it) may eliminate the problem.

I believe I may have some malware that may need removing, if I need to do some hijack logs or anything please point in the right direction! It's been some time since I last had a problem like this.

Cheers, and thanks in advance.

I am a user of Firefox and have been for many years, but now that Mozilla have engaged in a version race to infinity and the Google toolbar plus several add-ons and possibly other auxiliary programs do not work, I am considering moving over to Chrome.

I use Windows XP 2002 Home with SP3, AVG2012 and ZA firewall.

I am currently giving Chrome a good trial run, but again the Google toolbar,KeyScrambler and NoScript are not supported. As I use Sandboxie and have no personal finance details on my computer, the loss of these otherwise useful programs does not matter too much. Nothing will get onto my computer and knowing my key strokes is of little value. NoScript ? No great loss regarding security in my case.

Question ?

I find that Chrome takes an age to load the Google Home Page and so do many other users on the web. Much slower than Firefox. Seems to be something to do with loading the Cache, I get a message saying "Waiting for Cache" and a time-out panel saying "Kill or Wait". Timing it results in 60-70 seconds from clicking the desktop icon to being fully loaded. Once loaded, all is OK. Firefox takes 35 seconds. I am finding Chrome with extensions and my selected settings a very attractive alternative to Firefox..

Is there anything that can be done about this ?
 

A:Chrome slow to load Google Home Page

Just an update.

I have found that adjusting the Chrome settings has made a big improvement.
Wrench>Options>Under the Hood>Privacy. Uncheck item 3 and/or item 2. I am currently running with items 2 & 3 unchecked.
The load time is now 5-10 seconds - it does vary a little, but is mostly 5 seconds. this is without Sandboxie.
With Sandboxie, the load time is 12-20 seconds. Infinitely better than before, so in the absence of another solution, there it stays. I can live with that.

Here is a screen shot :-

All day yesterday I was browsing the internet with no problems which includes me playing games and browsing the web today however. Whenever I go to youtube the videos load and play just fine but the thumbnails only appear black, after about a minute or so of watching a video the thumbnails will eventually load up and appear as they should. I have included an image to show exactly what im talking about. Also at different times of the day today I noticed that my browsing experience would be very slow on my laptop not allowing me to watch videos while still allowing me to play games that required me to be connected to the internet and while doing so I had no lag/latency and when I tested my connection on two ipads and an additional laptop neither device had any of these issues. Only my current laptop. I have tryed using system restore to restore my pc back to a point in time where this issue did not happen but that has not worked I have tryed using firefox and the issue still occurs. I have even reinstalled chrome and cleared chromes browser cache and history along with its cookies as well.

Looks like you have at least 8 different extensions :O
Disable each of them and try again. Also, go to about:flags and disable anything that you have enabled.
Also, run command prompt (press Windows+R, enter "cmd.exe" without the quotes, and press enter), and the command is:
Code:
ipconfig /flushdns

I have two computers running Windows 8.1 and have Google Chrome, with latest updates.

Over the past months I've been running into problems when the Adobe Flash plug-in runs. I've seen it notoriously bad on forums and on photo sharing sites (like Photobucket).

Symptom:
Initial page load will be fine.As site Flash media begins to execute, the browser page will become sluggish.Scrolling will become increasingly slow and unresponsive.Eventually a warning appears at the top that Flash is running slowly and if I wish to stop it.Stopping it will trigger a reload.Often Flash will end up crashing altogether.

This behavior won't be cleared until the browser is completely stopped and restarted. There does seem to be a worsening if multiple tabs on the same site are opened, but even still, crashes will happen with just a few tabs open.

My browser has only one instance of the Flash plug-in (there are numerous tips about checking Chrome plug-ins, finding 2 Flash entries, and disabling one). There is nothing else added that could be doing anything to interfere with Flash. I have Avast Anti-virus, but disabling it doesn't seem to affect Flash reliability.

I have reproduced this easily on two completely separate computers running Windows 8.1 on Google Chrome. I've searched on-line but haven't turned up much help at all.

Any advice on how to deal with this would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Less than a week ago, I used Control Panel to disable Google Chrome automatic update checking & installations. I did this because Chrome sometimes automatically checks for available updates and ties nearly all of computer resources while some unknown process associated with Chrome occurs. I thought this was because of the automatic update checking and installing, which why I turned this off (through Scheduling Tasks, in Control Panel.)

Just a couple of hours ago, I fresh-started the computer (Windows XP, s.p.3, 2.0GHz processor, 512MB RAM, Norton Internet Security 2011, Internet Explorer 8, Firefox 7.01, Google Chrome (belief up to date, 15.0.874.121 m)), visited internet using Internet Explorer - NOT CHROME - and had not yet even opened chrome during this user session. A few minutes after the internet usage, the computer became suddenly very, very, very slow, and Norton File Insight indicated high memory usage from Google Chrome. It reported "setup.exe" as the file causing this. I clicked to see where file is this was file, and after maybe 5 or 7 minutes, a folder opened in response indicating C:....CR_2D830.tmp\setup.exe.
