Firefox running extremly slow

Q: Firefox running extremly slow

Hello, I have been using Firefox for all my browsing needs since using my new pc with Windows 7. I am not sure if I have malicious malware on my system. Recently my accounts on facebook and my yahoo email accounts were hacked. If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated. Here is my Hijack logfile:Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 3:23:47 PM, on 5/17/2010Platform: Unknown Windows (WinNT 6.01.3504)MSIE: Internet Explorer v8.00 (8.00.7600.16385)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\Program Files (x86)\Trend Micro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Safari\Safari.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\IELowutil.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exeC:\Windows\SysWow64\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil10e.exeC:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exeR1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=54896R0" target="_blank" class="wLink">http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=54896R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.comcast.net/R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://www.yahoo.comR1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=54896R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=54896R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.comcast.net/R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch = R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = C:\Windows\SysWOW64\blank.htmR1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Window Title = Windows Internet Explorer provided by ComcastR1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = *.localR0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName = F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=userinit.exeO2 - BHO: &Yahoo!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A:vista running extremly slow

Post some system specs and we can decide from there. In the tutorials section there is a tutorial on how to increase the performance of Vista by changing OS settings.

Attempt a defrag.
Defrag the registry.
Make sure you are Virus Free.

Those are the otherwise easy steps to increase your speed.

Hope this helps.

A:Java running extremly slow

Start with an uninstall, reboot and reinstall of the latest Java.

A thorough virus scan (see the Spyware section) would also be a GOOD thing.

Hi, My lap top Compaq Presario B1900 is running extremly slow. At the moment I am unable to even open files. A few months ago I noticed it was registering that the hard drive was almost full, which I found odd as I couldnt locate any extremly large files. I havent used it much and now it takes hours to get it going. Is there and easy way to search for files stored that are over a certain size? I have managed to delete files on the desktop hoping I might get a bit of speed back but as at right now, still waiting for my documents folder to open at 30min and counting. Please help me.

A:laptop running extremly slow than usual

Well we do not recommend using registry cleaners or "fixers" as they have a tendency to delete the wrong thing and make your system even worse off than it was. The first thing to look at is how many processes you have running at any given time (press ctrl + shift + esc to get the task manager, then click on the Processes tab). You shouldn't have more than about 40 (though this # can vary depending on what you have running on a daily basis).

You can also sort the processes by the amount of memory they are using and the amount of CPU time they are utilizing. This can help you identify trouble programs that are not operating properly.

There are some other basic things you can do. Disk Cleanup, Defragment, and spyware/adware scans. If you have any questions on these feel free to ask and I/we will elaborate.

Hey guys, I'm new here, and I really need yours help. Two months ago my computer started crashing on startup, BSOD, and after first crash, I boot it up again, and than works normally, like nothing happend. But I wanted to fix that, and I shut down all services on startup, that aren't related to Windows and I used used three antivirus programs, all showing no virusis in system. Than I updated all drivers, as BSOD code was some kind of problem with video graphics, even used some registry cleaners and Windows didn't crash any more. But than real problem showed up. Windows started to be very slow, and unresponsive, to open page in browser, it needs like 5 minutes, simplest task became too hard to do with my computer. I don't use it for gaming, just simpel stuff. I cleaned all the dust inside computer, but all the same. I couldn't deal with that any more, so I decided that it's time for fresh start.

That's why, I decided to do a clean install of Windows. On my great surprise, it's still slow as it was before clean install! Usage of CPU is never above 50%, and RAM also. I really don't know what to do next. Any help is welcomed! Thanks!

System spec: CPU - Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E6500 @ 2.93GHz
Motherboard - ASRock G31M-VS2
RAM - 4GB
HDD - WDC WD5000AAKS-00WWPA0 ATA Device
Graphics card - AMD Radeon HD5450
OS - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit

A:Win 7 extremly slow, even after clean install. CPU running low, RAM ok

Did you install 3 antivirus apps just like before the re-install?

Open Resource Monitor and switch to CPU tab and sort Processes and Services by CPU and take a screenshot. Also switch to Memory tab and sort by Working Set and take another screenshot. Post both here. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

Also try a clean startup - Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

Hi,

I am posting due to my Dad's work computer running extremly slow. The mouse movement is very jumpy, programs take an extremly long time to load and run much slower than my own computer, and the start-up is extremly slow. My sister often uses the computer for myspace etc, and I'm sure that shes been to a few dodgy sites that have caused the computer to slow down.

I was considerring buying more RAM (its on 1gb DDR at the moment), however it is not running any intensive processes (Symantec antivirus corporate ed., itunes and printer software are the main things running) andI'd rather see if a simple software fix can be implmented.

Attached is a Hijackthis log. There is no urgent need for a response, as there are likely higher priority requests from other people. Any assistance with this is greatly appreciated.

Ok so, first of all im alex, this is my first post on this forum you guys have got

i have just yesturday bought an Acer 5536-644G32MN Laptop which is running vista.

i have a dialup internet connection (ha ha, please dont tell me to just get broadband)
which on my desktop computer running windows XP works fine,

Yesturday when i tried dialing up to my connection useing the inbuilt modem in my laptop, it connected but i noticed it was quite slow,
as in would take a few minutes to load google,
i went out for the day because i had other things to do,
when i came home later i tried the internet again, and it was working fine, just as well as it works on this desktop computer im on now.

now tonight when i tried connecting to the internet again it was realy really slow again, it would say its connected fine and running at 52kb but it wasnt loading pages
and 4 out of 5 times it would fail to sign into msn, and when it did sign in it woudl take a few minutes to show people online and then a minute later it would lose the connection to msn and sign out.
very frustrating
the inbuilt modem is a 56k ITU v.92 wake on ring ready (in the book it says that)

can anyone shed some light on the situation

i ahve tried disabling the mcaffee firewall on my laptop but that made no difference,

im not sure if this is a vista problem or something else

any tips?

A:Internet Running extremly slow (new computer)

Hi Alex, welcome to Tech Support Forums, First of all..... Get broadband :) Im just kidding, however that would solve your problem :P Have you contacted your ISP at all? They may need you to add some modem strings so your modem and isp can 'play nicely' that happens alot with software based modems, which are in most laptops.

Hi all...yes its me again, back at cleaning my sisters puter.....this is what occured this time, she got notice to update her xp, she said she went to the microsoft site to update it..but then she had lots of popups and difficulty logging on to her internet (cable hookup), her isp helped her do a restore back to when she didn't add the update, now her systems acts as something is running constantly, and she gets warnings that her Virtual Memory is low.....I did a startup menu...and cleaned out what startup content shouldnt be there, one of which was "virtual Bouncer", I am not sure if i got that gone, but it didn't look as if it was coming back?? on a later msconfig check ..anyway, I also ran Adaware and Spybot S&D, her system still is extremely slow to respond...when i did a ctrl/alt/del and got her performance up....quite often it was peaking out at 100%....so....I did a hijackthis log. If I could please have someone look at this for me...so I can also clean that out.....I see they play alot of games..don't know if those cause trouble or not. After her system is clean, then I will approach the issue of connection to her cable internet....but this time I had her bring harddrive here..so I wasn't spending allll my time there....

You need to increase the RAM to 4GB. Even though a 32 bit version of Windows can only use about 3.5MB, you will notice the increse.
I've made sure all our Windows 7 computers are running 4GB. I've talked a friend into buying more RAM so two of his slow computers would be peppier. He has noticed the difference.

As far as Java, MS discontinued java with Windows 2000. You should not have MS JVM on a windows 7 computer.

Hello BC, this is my first post ever.
I have a Dell Dimension E520.

were still in the process list of taskmananger
unable to remove, so when i started Explorer.exe again
there were two Explorer.exe in my taskmananger then..
the old one still dont work to close, but the new one does?
and internet browser suddenly became very slow ( Firefox,Internet explorer )
all websites can take up to 2-5 minutes long to load,
before they loaded up on 3-5 seconds..

Upgraded Java and such..

I have cleared all temp files manually and with programs like

Dell Latitude w/ Windows XP, 25% free space. Most time it is extremly slow (like today), while other times it moves along at a respectable speed. The only thing that seems to help is running Lavasoft (just ran and did a complete restart) but not always. It took me about 1.5 hrs to login to techguy, print the Welcome Guide (oh that was painful), get registered, etc. then do a quick search in the forums b-4 posting this question.

I believe there are a lot of programs/applications running in the background that could be removed but I do not know what is required to stay running. Am I barking up the wrong tree or will this speed up things?

The laptop sets beside a Jurasik (sp?) Park model (Windows 98) desktop that won't die and just keeps plugging away at top speed. I need the same from my laptop.

Any suggestions appreciated (and please be specific on actions to perform as I am an end user, not a tech head). Thanks...

Hi Guys.
My parents Just got firefox and have found that it takes at least 8-9 minutes to load each time they try to start it. Is this normal or Is something affecting Its performance? If anyone knows anything then I would appreciate you help.
Thanks.
 

A:Firefox running slow

Do they have tab loading on the homepage? How many?
Have they put add-ons or plug-ins on Firefox?
Are they referring just to the launch of the Firefox browser taking 6-7 minutes?
Or are they referring to the startup of the entire system just since they got Firefox?

I use Firefox and load my homepage with 7 tabs. I also have just a few add-ons and the time element is nowhere near several minutes!

Have them try IE and see if there is any noticed delay accessing. That way they can rule out-or in- a connection or startup problem.

Hey guys,

I've lurked here for a while now, pulling solutions from other people's issues and fixing my own to the best of my ability. This is the first time asking for help specifically so hopefully I do it all right.

I downloaded Firefox 4 figuring it would be wonderful just like previous versions and it probably still is once I get it configured properly. Unfortunately it is running very very slowly for me, to the point that I went back to using IE instead. Often it will take 15 minutes for a page to fully load. I will be honest and say I am not super computer savvy, but am a scientist so I can understand what you're saying pretty well usually. I run windows XP HE version 2002 with SP 3 loaded. Our computer isn't used to heavily so memory issues shouldn't be applicable if that is typical. I usually hate asking to have my hand held, but I'd be lying if I said I was good enough with computers to troubleshoot something like this. I saw a few people on other sites recommend opening FF in safe mode, but never said what to do from there. If anyone is willing to help, I would really appreciate it.

Hi!
Recently our computer has started running verrrry slowly. It takes forever to load pages, and many times we have to refresh to get it all. It is much better on Internet Explorer than Firefox, but we much prefer Firefox. We have run scans on Avast, Spybot, and Malware Bites...all come out clean. My husband ran something called c cleaner (sp?), and he defragged. It seems to be getting worse instead of better.

It would be great if you could help us figure out what is going on!

I've recently updated to Vista Ultimate(About 1 month ago) and I hadn't installed any games for it. I put 3DMark05 on this machine for the heck of it as I was going to use it on an older system.

I ran it but never completed as it was so terribly slow. I was getting between 6-13 fps which is ridiculous. I thought ok..what ever. So I install Assassins Creed, not to my amazement it was so laggy, I could barely move. Even in options, the mouse took forever to get to the other side of the screen. So now I'm wondering if it's my Graphics card or Vista Ultimate.

Specs:

AMD Athlon 64x2 5200+ 2.7(OC To 3Ghz)
4Gb RAM
Nvidia 7300Gt 256mb graphics Card
Samsung SyncMaster 2032gw
Seagate 160gb SATA HD
400w psu
BioStar T7025-M2 MotherBoard

I've updated all the drivers as far as I can tell, so only thing I can think of is Graphics Card or Ultimate?

Anything I need to add?

Thanks for any help.

IBM Thinkpad using XP. Bought in 2002-2003. Have used AVG antivirus for years. After the last update (last thing added to hard drive) the computer has been really really slow in processing. We did a defrag, but that didn't seem to help. What do I try next?
 

A:IBM Thinkpad processes extremly slow

Have you tried to uninstall then reinstall it. I have had the same thing happen to me and it helped a lot.

Cheers,

Hello, I am running Windows 7 (64bit). My Edge somehow runs really slow. I suspect that it is attacked by something bad. Please help!
