Computer running very slow over past few months

Q: Computer running very slow over past few months

I have W7, 6 memory 650 HD, quad core -2 year old hd computer. ISP CABLE 12 m speed - On net speed tests , i get 10 to 20 download speeds. I am using 335 g with, with 249g showing as still available for a total 584. .

COMPUTER is running very very slow on net and non- net, with occasional hang ups that last sometimes last as much as a minute. The Hang ups are more frequent on non- net and I sometimes get the no responding.

We checked everything that could be using extra resources and it made very little differences .

We discovered one potential problem and I seek your advice on this matter-- In the info drive properties , The box that says says " COMPRESS THIS DRIVE TO SAVE DISC SPACE " was CHECKED.

A friend said that if the g's are uncompressed , my 335g could possibly be double and the drive is overloaded causing the computer to run slow everywhere- He suggests that I just go buy a new 2 tb hd and move all my stuff over and keep the existing hd as a partial back up.
I am extremely hesitant to remove the check box for fear of what could happen.

I do happen to have everything backed up via external hd including the Operating system , but putting that in motion is something that I would like to avoid.

Anyway, I sure would appreciate your advice on this mess.

Sincerely,,,, Ralph

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.)

Check my signature on the link on how to safely "Optimize" windows 7. Also, this tutorial may help with any problems:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker (by Brink)

In addition, as the optimization tutorial suggested, the more programs you have installed, the higher the chance you will have for slowdowns. Only have a single antivirus installed at any one time, and please oh please say that it isn't Avast!, McAfee, or AVG -.-

For the networking problem, go to the wireless adapter card's manufacturer's website and look for any updates to the driver software. If there are, download it, uninstall the driver on your computer, and then install the new driver.

Check your add ons and make sure they are not swamping your computer with slowdowns. Disable any you do not want or use.

Like the topic title says my Windows 7 computer has been getting Blue Screens on and off for a while now.  This is a fairly recent computer that I built at the start of last year.  I don't know how much help this information would be but at the start of this year I installed a new 2TB hard drive, and made a switch from WIFI to Ethernet, and sometime after that the BSODs started happening.  I bring up the Ethernet bit because one of the BSODs happened after I accidentally knocked out the Ethernet cable.
 
I decided to stop putting it off after i got two Blue Screens within the same hour today.
 
I've attached the minidump files down below.
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello all. I'm hoping someone out there can help me figure out what is going on with my laptop. I have a Pansonic Toughbook CF-52 with a Core 2 Duo 8400 and 1 GB RAM. Last week, it started to lag really bad when running ANYTHING. Even if my internet connection is disabled, I still get lag. Programs that once opened up quickly now take quite a bit of time to load. Outlook, Excel, Word, Internet Explorer and even anti-spyware programs are slow in opening. Even going into My Documents, which normally takes only 1 second, now takes 5-10 seconds or longer! I bought this laptop through my employer and I only had McAfee on it. I recently installed Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and it found a Trojan, which I was able to remove easily. I also installed Ad-Aware and it came back with a clean scan. I ran HiJackThis but didn't notice anything that was out of the ordinary, however I could be wrong. I ran the DDS program found here and have attached the appropriate files. I've also attached my HiJackThis Log. I tried running GMER, but it causes my system to crash and reboot. I recently ran chkdsk and it found & fixed a few errors, however this did not fix the problem. If you can provide ANY help with this issue, I would greatly appreciate it. Also, I want to mention that I do not have Administrator access on this computer, however I have had no problems installing, repairing, uninstalling etc. Thanks in advance for your help.DDS (Ver_10-03-17.01) - NTFSx86 Run by Colonial ...

Hi, I have a Compaq Presario V5000 which I only bought a few months back. It was fine at first but I had a little incident where because someone switched off the laptop by pressing the power button during startup the "My documents" folder became corrupt. Now I dont know if thats the cause but recently it has been running quiet slow. It doesnt freeze but just just takes a while to run/load things. Just yesterday I reinstalleed XP and it is running a bit more smoothly but is still slow compared to what it was. I guess it cant be Spyware/malware or virus because the hard drive has just been formatted (during reinstallation of the OS) I've also downloaded all the drivers for everything i could think of. Is there anything else I should check?


I've attached a full report from everest to start with.

Not sure what to make of this.
Reformatted it a couple of months ago. Upgraded to Verizon Fios, so i have a big pipe, but the IE7 and chrome both run really slow sometimes. On occasion I have ended tasks that were using far more memory than the browser, both ended in *audit, like winaudit, or wnaudit, or something like that.

AVG, malware, and trendmicro housecall found nothing. Windows onecall found something but it couldn't remove it (and, oh so helpfully, didn't identify it either).

I've been getting BSOD since early october. I already tried to use system restore back to previous month before I got BSOD and still getting it.
I've tried to re install windows several times and still get this BSOD.
There was a time I was just freshly installed the windows and in the middle of installing drivers of my laptop and I got BSOD.
I noticed I only get BSOD if I connect to the internet, specifically while browsing or downloading. I never get BSOD while being offline.
So here I am, finally given up on how to solve this and search for help from expert.

Thanks in advance for the input.
Apologize if I happen to miss some details.

Ever since I built this PC I've had BSODs every so often. I've not been able to trace them to any particular source, but lately they seem to be getting a lot more frequent and I am getting fed up, so I figured I would try asking here.

I've used the SF Diagnostic Tool to gather the requested information and attach it to this thread.

The most recent one seems to suggest a problem with the CPU. It's been suggested to me that my CPU might need a microcode update - I installed SiSoft Sandra Lite which is able to check the CPU microcode level and indeed it does suggest it isn't on the latest version, but as far as I can tell there is no procedure for manually updating microcode, you just have to wait and hope it comes down through Windows Update or something.

Can anyone help?

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.

A:Daily-ish BSOD past few months :(

One of your dumpfiles blames Probably caused by : dxgmms1.sys ( dxgmms1!VIDMM_SEGMENT::MarkResourcesForEviction+cf ).
Driver Description: DirectX Graphics MMS./ this is probably related to your videocards and you mentioned that the bsods mostly happens when gaming.

In your msinfo32 report i found:

Why is this device disabled did you have problems with it?
How did you disabled it, through device manager or did you disabled it in your Biossettings?.
Your Logitech G710 keyboard drivers are outdated(2009), please update the latest drivers from here Support + Downloads: G710 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Logitech and also update the drivers(2012) for your Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910.

Please also update your Intel Watchdog Timer driver(2010), it is (probably) part of the intel mangement engine.

On my C: Drive that is SSD I used to have around 38GB free (was even 42GB but after accidental turning the windows update on I lost to 38GB). Since I stayed at 38GB without wasting space with silly windows updates (turned off ofc) and I installed only tiny programs, I don't see how did I become from 38GB to 23GB of free space?? I may have searched files through 15K photos a month ago if such thing ever reduces disk space (such as indexing) but I checked one windows.ecb (or something like that) file was only 133MB, I don't see where all the space got lost?? I was installing a few (3-4) small programs that when I saw are of no use to me - uninstalled. I have run disk cleanup many times and I don't see where all that space went?

I may have accidently enabled 'Windows 7 file recovery' but I made sure to disable this trash immediately, meaning I do not have any folders on the disk space that would take so much memory.

I know that sometimes if you delete a lot of files like thousands of files, 20GB + of space, the space doesn't restore immediately (whenever it comes from many deleted files) but for that reason I deleted files from removable disk, to not get any traces on the main HDD.

Is there any tool to check over the months, how your free space got lowered, I could then see on a graph if the drop of space got sudden or not, to identify what could have caused it. And I dislike using any 3rd party 'cleaners' or whatever software

A:Lost 15 GB over the past months for nothing.. realized now

You can set how much space is used for System Restore, check and see how much space is allotted and how much percent wise is being used.

Hi everyone! I've received 3 bsod the past 2 months, i don't really know where they are coming from but maybe its cause i rarely turn my Laptop off all the way. i usually put it in sleep mode. Anyways here the little windows that popped up once i turned it back on. the most recent one came when i turned my laptop on from sleep mode, maybe around 10 minutes in it just happend.Problem signature: Problem Event Name: BlueScreen OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3 Locale ID: 1033Additional information about the problem: BCCode: 9f BCP1: 0000000000000003 BCP2: FFFFFA80115B94E0 BCP3: FFFFF80000BA2748 BCP4: FFFFFA80111327C0 OS Version: 6_1_7601 Service Pack: 1_0 Product: 768_1Files that help describe the problem: C:\Windows\Minidump\021412-32916-01.dmp C:\Users\Eddie\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-73788-0.sysdata.xmlRead our privacy statement online: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=104288&clcid=0x0409If the online privacy statement is not available, please read our privacy statement offline: C:\Windows\system32\en-US\erofflps.txtI tried going to the "files that help describe the problem" while the window was up but it wouldn't let me open them.

I am the admin on this computer.Thanks for the help! off to school now.

A:BSOD out of no where 3rd time past 2 months.

Don't bother checking for solutions. Can't remember a time that has actually worked for me. I am also going to ignore the codes for the moment as they do not enjoy telling the exact issue at hand.

1. What are you doing when the BSOD pops up? You say you keep it in sleep mode, etc?

2. It is a very rare issue. Give us your computer specs (I recommend Speccy for a more thorough deluge of information).

3. Toss us a small list of your most used programs (that you actually have to open yourself) and any consistent programs such as Anti-Spyware and Anti-Virus.

4. There is a chance you do have a minor (or very sneaky) virus on your computer causing the issue. Run a thorough virus scan via Avast or maybe Avira (free-versions) and nab yourself Comodo (free again) while you are at it.

5. Finally (and last on the list) how often do you actually turn off your computer? What are your core temperatures? When was the last time you applied Thermal? Can you cook an egg on the darn thing? Let us know.

I've been getting seemingly random BSODs on my Win8.1 box for months now. There are several different errors that show up, and most of them seem to point to the drivers. I have no idea which driver could be causing the issue though, as I've reinstalled the majority of them.

A few I can remember:
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
ATTEMPTED_EXECUTE_OF_NON_EXECUTE_MEMORY
TIMER_OR_DPC_INVALID

Bluescreenview points at ntoskrnl.exe for nearly every one of them, though some have others thrown in as well such as usbehci.sys, dgxkrnl.sys, and ndis.sys

I'm at a loss of what to do at this point. Some days I only get one BSOD, other days I get 5+. It's really starting to be an issue.

MSINFO32 report is missing. Please do this:





MSINFO32:
Please go to Start and type in "msinfo32.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Save the report as an .nfo file, then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
Also, save a copy as a .txt file and include it also (it's much more difficult to read, but we have greater success in getting the info from it).

If you're having difficulties with the format, please open an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt and type (or copy/paste) "msinfo32 /nfo %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\TEST.NFO" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Then navigate to Desktop to retrieve the TEST.NFO file. If you have difficulties with making this work, please post back. Then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.



Out of 11 memory dumps there were 5 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:

- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)

Hi -

Probable issues with RAM are a likely cause.

Run memtest86+ - http://www.techsupportforum.com/2863029-post5.html

Before you run memtest86+. . . .

- remove Daemon Tools/ Alcohol 120

- Run the Driver Verifier -- http://www.sysnative.com/0x1/Driver_Verifier.htm

I see several old drivers in the dumps. If BSODs are software related, D/V can help find the culprit.

I'm not sure what you mean by this?
What is the make and model of your computer? You may have a Recovery Partition on your computer. If you start up your computer, you may have a quick message over the logo that says Press (key) to Enter Recovery, sometimes this is F11. If so, this will set your computer back to Factory Defaults. This will remove all personal data, so backup first.
If you do not have a recovery partition, then read up on the link in my signature PC Running Slow? And try those things.

Since about 7 months back I've been experiencing a BSOD on my Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5529 laptop. It would happen upon logging into my account and would only stop if I booted up in safe mode. Other people use the computer too so I can't be quite sure what may have caused it but since this week it has actually booted up twice, including now, without being in safe mode and hasn't blue screened. The BOSD always returns though so I'm sure this time will be no different. I was wondering if anyone could help me resolve this issue as I would love to be able to use this laptop again. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello all. Since around the middle of October, I have suddenly been receiving BSODs, mostly DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, or IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I have collected the necessary files and will upload them, with one caveat - I cleaned out the dump files a week or so ago, so I only have a few. After trolling forums for a bit, I did a few self diagnostics such as updating drivers, and that seems to have reduced the frequency. I was getting them at least once a day, but after updating the Razer Synapse program by cleanly uninstalling and reinstalling, I was able to knock a lot of it out.

I updated to Windows 10 basically the day it was released, and have not really had any problems up until this point. I generally use this computer for gaming, but it does also serve as a home office PC as well. I am very careful as to what files I will allow on my PC, and I have run multiple virus scans/Windows Defender scans. The only thing that I have seen it pick up is a false positive on Oblivion.exe (game) due to modding the EXE to be LAA. Other than that it is clean.

I also ran SeaTools, and that came back clear. I have not run chkdsk yet, but will probably run that if necessary. The only new hardware that I can recall adding in the past few months would be the Microsoft Xbox One Wireless Adapter, back near the end of October/beginning of November.

Please let m know ou need any additional information.

Dell XPS PC was extremely stable until may of this year which is when I started getting BSODs. About 1 year prior to this I started experiencing very slow performance; startup and logon would average between 6 to 7 minutes. So, in May of this year, I added more memory, increased from 8GB to 16GB, and I added an additional internal hard drive and moved most of my media files to it, so the original hard drive contains only windows, software and my document files. I also, removed Norton Internet Security and replaced with Windows Security Essential. When I started experiencing BSODs I ran mem86tst, but it did not turn up any problems. Also, I ran Tweakbit PCcleaner which cleaned up my registry. I also ran Tweakbit Driver updater which recommend a bunch of driver updates, but I was reluctant to make that many changes so I updated only my graphics card.

This is cable service, right?

First--slightly off topic--the only phone in a household should not be via cable company unless the phone is only a luxury. I know that my cable company even advised my neighbor to not switch to them from a landline unless he had a cell phone.

Sounds like a problem somewhere between the place where her service branches off from the main coax cable and the modem. Maybe a loose connection; maybe a defective component; maybe a frayed cable that sometimes contacts something it shouldn't.

- Technicians who have come out during a downtime have stated 'signals are all over the place, no consistent measure'

- Technicians have stated that they are surprised the connection is up because 'your signals are in flux 10-50 dB on every stream and signal'Click to expand...

And those technicians didn't start working backward to find the source of the fault???

If the service is similar to mine outside the residence her cable connects to the company's cable and that junction should be grounded. Carefully check that connection for tightness and for absence of corrosion or rust. Clean it if necessary and protect it if that seems to be needed. Unless that connection is the source of the problem I think that it is up to the technicians to trace the problem back to the source.

Hello all,

Over the past 6 months or so I have been getting random BSODs with no obvious symptoms of what is causing them.

They started happening last September after I got back from the Summer. To begin with I tried to diagnose the problem following various guides to try and work out what could be causing them. I did the following:
Memtest
Reg check
Driver Verifier
Updated Drivers
Checked for any physical damage on hardware
Tried restoring

No matter what I did I could not either fix the problem or find the cause of the problem. The main reason for this was the "ntoskrnl.exe+XXXXX" would appear each time on each crash, and searching online I could not find a definitive reason or answer to the crashes.

So I decided in the meantime to live with the possible chance that I would BSOD every now and then. For the most part this was fine as they became less frequent.

Then came today. I've had 3 BSOD in one day and now its starting to irritate me. Knowing that my previous efforts to try and find a solution were to no results, I just don't know what to do. I'm getting the point that I might just rip out all my hardware and start fresh, but that won't be for another 3 months or so.

So here are the .dmps from September till now. Looking at them in BlueScreenView the Caused Driver and Address are all different, there are some common patterns such as the "Qualcomm Atheros Driver" I did update this but ended up making the problem worse, as it made m... Read more

Hey, first post here and wondering if you guys could provide me with some help.

I would like to point out that:

I've traced them all back to the 'ntoskrnl.exe' file, except for the most recent which was caused by: 'dxgmms1.sys' yet I cannot find the file on my computer.

The path directory for ntoskrnl is C:\Windows\System32

I also came up with hits for iastor.sys not being digitally signed, it was last modified in 2011.

Also doing a scan on drivers I found 10 drivers to be outdated. I will update them.

Also some more info: my FPS in games is unreliable, in Starcraft 2 on max settings it can go from 60 to 5 very quickly and quite frequently. Also in Combat arms I would have lag spikes every few minutes.

Specs:

· OS - Vista/ Windows 7 ? Windows 7
· x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? x64
· What was original installed OS on system? Windows 7
· Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? OEM version
· Age of system (hardware) 1 year
· Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? Yes, 2 months ago.
· CPU - Alienware
· Video Card - NVidia GeForce 460xm
· MotherBoard - Alienware m17xr3 motherboard

If you need any more info or access to my computer to help I would gladly do so.

Thanks

EDIT: updated all drivers.

I went ahead and started to go about deleting the DefaultAppPool user extra profile that was added.
 
Once I got to the point where I was able to disable the ISS, I noticed that an extra icon appeared in my folders - Normally there's just My PC, but now there was a Windows10_OS (C:) which made up about 68GB of my 500.  My PC makes up about 65GB.  I scanned through some of the files on this.
 
First off, the User list was Admin - DefaultAppPool - User1 - Default Migrated - Public.  So the User profile which is constantly annoying me wasn't on there.
 
I scanned through some files, I you may need t open in notepad with some, but some mentioned bruteforce attacks and referencing dictionaries...  The bitlocker key shouldn't be locked on these files, but if you need it please PM me.
 
There were Multiple Addition, and FRST files - each slightly smaller then the next... almost as if they were edited one by one

Recently my computer has started booting up very slowly, and after it boots up the CPU or the fan (not sure which) stayed revved up. If I check the task manager idle system process is running at 98-99% all the time. I know this is a measure of how often the CPU is idle, but I don't recall it always being so high.

If I start the task manager as soon as my computer lets me when I boot up all my CPU is going to idle system process for some reason, instead of booting things up.

Its been awhile, but I seem to recall that some problems can make it look like idle process time when in reality something else is actually wrong.

I get random lag when I open a program. Firefox for example, will load just fine, but then I try to click something and the computer momentarily freezes. Its not just Firefox though, it happens when I open up "My Documents" or Pidgin or anything.

I ran Microsoft Security Essentials, Malware Bytes, and Spybot S&D, all of them came back clean.

I would post stuff from Belarc Advisor here, but it keeps hanging on the "Checking local network of this computer." part at 54%.

I'm not sure where to go from here. :(
