Preferred Solution: Slow startup after computer goes asleep. How can I speed this process up?

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 laptop running win8,
 
I've put it to sleep overnight and then when I woke it up, it was slower than normal. Chrome tabs were also taking a long time to load.
After trying to restart it, the laptop would get stuck at the bootscreen with the spinning dots.
 
I then manually shutdown and powered on the laptop after waiting a while, which lead to the message "Automatic repair" under the dots
After some time, the message was replaced with "scanning & repairing drive D:".
 
It lead to a blue screen after couple of minutes; "windows could not boot properly, try a system restore"
clicking "restore" lead to a blank black screen, which then after a really long time, the laptop restarted on its own.
 
After waiting for the computer to startup again, it seemed ok,
but everything is really slow (double clicking applications etc)

Hoping someone will be able to help me here. I have a Toshiba Satellite notebook that's been locking up and crashing anytime I open programs. I have tried various anti virus programs and even restore points but nothing seems to resolve this. Have had this problem for 2 years now. I do play Mafia Wars frequently, but can only play that in "safe mode" which seems to be the only mode I can use without it crashing.

I was referred to you guys from another user. Thanks.

A:Toshiba WinVista 32bit locks up; slow startup & slow process

Is your Toshiba running the same OS as shipped with it?

Have you thought about trying to update the drivers?

Toshiba = https://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/pubLogin.jsp (No login needed for drivers, only the forums)

What is the model?

I would backup anything you would hate to lose just in case before doing anything.

I would also suggest running a hard drive diagnostic and a memory test.

This Seagate test should work on your hard drive.

Hi, came home the other night to find babysitter had been watching Orange Is The New Black via a "free tv" website and not used BBC iplayer or 4OD catch-up as suggested. Since then, computer very slow to start-up, hangs occasionally when at desktop and fan speed very fast for no obvious reason. I'm running Windows 7 Home basic on a Dell 1548, with 4Gb RAM and have had Comodo Internet Security Premium (free) running smoothly for about a year. I've checked the Task Manager, and nothing unexpected is running.

Hi,

I'm having problems and would greatly appreciate if you can help me out! It took 25 minutes for my computer to start up, and it's running very sluggishly. IoBit Advanced Systemcare freezes and when I try to update it it warns about danger. I tried to post my logfile on the hijackthis page to be analyzed, but I only got a blank page. If I remove the following line

" R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = *.local " - the logfile could be analyzed.

Anyway, here's the logfile. Many thanks for your help!

My problem is somewhat similar to Budrash's posted below. I have a Dell Inspiron 8200 running windows XP. On initial startup, after logging on with my user name, my system seems to hangup, sometimes for as long as 30 to 45 seconds. However, after this initial hangup, everything runs fine. I don't remember installing or updating any software coinciding with when this problem began. I run spybot routinely. My hijackthis results are below. Any advice?

Hey all.
 
My troubles started today. All of a sudden XP started up 4 to 5 times slower.
 
iexplore.exe process also consistently spawns forcing me to manually wipe it using the task manager. It spawns at random short intervals, begins at a small 76K mem and quickly balloons to >100,000K mem and continues to spawn another (I've seen up to 5 such instances). At this point my computer slows to a halt and starts to crash. 
 
Upon using DDS it only generates 1 log file - attach.txt.
No logfile named dds.txt was generated.
 
After a little bit of reading up, I realize iexplore.exe is a virus that has been here for quite sometime now. Is there a standard route to go about removing this from my computer? Hardly usable with such insane memory spikes.
 
DAY 2 UPDATE: No iexplore.exe processes spawned this session. Rig is still running extremely slowly. No idea if the virus went underground or that its something more sinister. 
 
VyR

A:XP SP3 - Sudden slow startup, iexplorer.exe process constantly spawns.

An update on what I have done since:
 
1. Malwarebtyes Anti-Malware
2. SUPERAntiSpyware
3. AdwCleaner - Logs available
4. JunkRemovalTool - Logs available
5. AVG Complete Scan
6. Spybot Search-and-Destroy
 
Others: Used msconfig - checked 'Hide Microsoft processes' and unchecked all non-essentials. No improvement on startup times.
 
Computer still starting up extremely slowly. I no longer see iexplore.exe in the Task Manager (I only ever use Chrome or Firefox). However, something is constantly running in the background and causing major lag. I'm unable to identify the source from Task Manager.
 
Lag spikes occur every second or so, giving the computer a "jerk" every couple of seconds. Programs are slow to startup as well, with loading times greatly increased.
 
Help is urgently needed.
 
Please advise asap.

Also, If you don't use AOL, uninstall it. It's a resource hog! You may also want to consider switching your antivirus to AVG Free (http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/lng/us/tpl/v5#avg-anti-virus-free). IMHO (and supported by the following: http://mattbthompson.blogspot.com/2007/01/light-or-lighter-weight-aps-to-replace.html) Norton AV is possibly one of the worst pieces of software as far as resources go.

When was the last time you defragmented your hard drive? Either use the built-in defrag program or use Diskeeper (which will defrag your hard drive when it needs it, a great program).

Good Luck!

Am having some performance issues with regard to bootup and internet connection speed. I have DSL but the fastest download rate I can get is 170kbps and should be around 1200kbps for my area. Is there someplace I can check the settings and or restore defaults. The other problem is that when the blue dell logo appears startup it just sits there for 5 to 10 minutes before finally booting up. Any advice or help that might guide me in the right direction would be appreciated. System is a Dell Dimension 700mhz P3 WinXP/SP2.

Thanks

A:Slow startup and poor internet transfer speed

Generally it is best to break up your post into separate posts for each problem, but let me take a stab.1. Have you used one of the on-line tests to determine your exact d/l speed?http://www.dslreports.com/toolsIf this tests significantly lower than the speed promised by your provider, you should call its tech support so they can check your connexion.2. There may be several causes for slow booting.One of the most common is that your computer is loading too many unneeded applications when it starts up. There are many applications, such as Spybot Search and Destroy, that list what is being loaded on start up and allows you to delete them. To determine which to delete, look these up at BC's Startup database.A second possible cause is spyware, which can be removed by several good, free applications like Ad-Aware SE.Another possible cause is lack of maintenance. Deleting junk and unneeded files, running scandisk, and defragging should be done on a regular basis.Hope this helps,Regards,John

Just recently my computer has been running slowly so I checked the CPU usage and it is the system idle process running at up to 95%. HELP.


Perhaps related, perhaps not, is that the screen has also been fading out until I have to restart the computer. The dell guy is coming to replace the screen though they couldn't figure out what was actually wrong (he guessed and I'm under warrantee - so the fixings free)

A:System Idle Process - Very Slow Computer

Hi Morgan, Welcome to TSF!

I suggest that you wait until the Dell? Tech has looked at your machine.
Fiddling with it whilst its under warranty could void your warranty.
Ask the Tech when he comes if he can look at this issue as well, as they might be related.

Hey there

Sometimes, AdobeUpdater.exe, this process, is using 99 of the CPU and it makes my computer very slow. I try to end the process but it stills there.

If i want it to end it, I need to end session or restart the computer.

How can I solve this? How can I remove it?

(it is in this right moment my CPU performance is at 100% because of the Adobeupdater.exe)

Thanks

A:[SOLVED] Process that makes computer slow (99%) !

You cannot use [Ctrl][Alt][Del] to launch Task Manager and kill the process

Go into Adobe Updater and set to NOT automatically download/install updates. Do this manually when you have no other apps running. I suggest a reminder (Outlook or whatever) every 2mths.

The updater DOES use high resources. That's just the way it is, which is why you don't want to run automatically.

Also, what type of network connection do you have? If you DO NOT have broadband, updates will be very slow.

I'm at my wits end trying to figure out what I've done to my computer. I think that I accidently clicked on an Anti-Virus Ad that swept through and it downloaded something very malicious because after that I have trouble getting anything to work properly. I've run all sorts of different virus scans and deleted everything that has come up but it doesn't fix the problem. Every command that I try to execute whether it be opening a program or simply trying to open the start menu takes about 2-3 minutes or more to execute. Ideas on what is wrong and how to fix it?

Hi myrockyboy and welcome to Tenforums.

Have you tried holding down the power button until it completely shuts off?

Then try this:

Unplug from power.
Remove battery (if laptop).
Press and hold the power button in, counting to 15 seconds.

Plug the system back in to the wall (replace battery as well), and try to boot.

p.s. please also make sure you are using a good plug - put a nightlight or lamp into it and make sure it's working.

Open Task Manager and check the cpu usage. If it's high, check to see which process is using the cpu. You may also want to check Event Viewer and see if Windows is reporting any hardware issues. If all of that looks normal, then we will need to know exactly what is "slow".

Hi Everyone,
I have a 2GB ram Acer Aspire One AO722 computer that has been slowing down substantially. I have a huge amount of hard drive space but it seems if I store more on it it gets slower. My question to you is what is the best software out there to speed up a computer?

The Software I Currently Have (To Not Mention):
Tweaking.com Tweaker
CCleaner
ATF Cleaner

A:Best way to speed up a slow computer

Start by checking this out:

Optimize Windows 7
How many processes are running at any given time? Use the link above in addition to deciding how many processes you need running as too many will slow your rig down. I have an old laptop with only 1 GB RAM, Intel Duo Core and 55GB HDD. I usually only have 48 processes running at rest, and when I'm online, with multiple programs opened, I only use about 5% of my CPU

Tweaking things is a tricky route to take. Some can help, but many can harm. Windows 7 is pretty well tweaked out of the box so I wouldn't do to many. Try scanning for malware with; Malwarebytes or Superantispyware to see what may be holding your system up.

That's a good place to start, the members here can help further, but until you do a few of these common steps there's no need to get too in depth, as you'd be surprised how much these things can help.

Hi RoThiSePh, Our apologies for the delay. If you still require help, please post a new fresh log so I can see if anything has changed.If you have not done so already, please do the initial cleanup steps in the following instructions before posting your new log: Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis LogI see a little on there that needs looking into and some of the programs you mention I agree need to be uninstalled. I just need to see what's changed since your post and if you include a list of installed programs I can assist you with that and it will possibly give some insight into removing some malware.Open HijackThis. If you still have the New Users Quickstart screen enabled, click Open Misc Tools Section.If you just have the regular opening screen, click the Config... button then the Misc Tools button.Now click the Open Uninstall Manager button, then the Save List button. Save the list somewhere convenient like My Documents and then the list will open in Notepad. Copy and Paste that list into your next reply to this post then we'll get started.

Whenever I put my HP Pavillion into sleep mode it only stays there a few minutes and then pops wide awake again! What can I do to get it to take a longer nap?

I'm starting to get the message 'Preparing to Hibernate' and then the computer shuts down. Using Windows XP on a Compaq Presario with 896 Ram. Thanks for taking my question.
 

A:Solved: Is My Computer Asleep?

I'm not sure I fully understand your question.

What is Hibernate?

Are you saying that your computer shuts down completely instead of hibernating? If so, you probably have a corrupt copy of the 'hiberfil.sys' file.

One is created each time you hibernate. You probably need to turn off hibernation, restart, and turn it back on. See Power Options in control panel.

Hibernation requires a minimum of 3 Gb (mostly 3.5 Gb as a minimum depending on what you're running - processes, etc).

One of the only ways to fix that is to upgrade to a larger capacity hard drive or remove some software or large files to make space.

For the longest time, now, my computer has been unable to stay in sleep mode. Any time I put it in sleep mode, it will stay asleep for maybe 3-5 minutes, and then it pops back on. It didn't do this at first, and I can't really think of anything I had installed or changed that would cause this to occur.

I had given up on solving the issue, because I just couldn't figure it out. But now it's annoying me again. Earlier today, I looked through some of my installed programs that run in the background, and I made sure to close all of them, thinking one (or more) of them might be causing the computer to continually wake up, but nothing changed...

I don't suspect I have any kind of malware, as I've had this issue for a long time, now, and I haven't had any other problems or issues (not to mention, I do frequent virus scans on my machine). I just can't figure out what it keeps doing this...

A:Computer won't stay asleep?

I would guess at a software program running in the background or maybe an update service for a piece of software. Is your mouse getting moved while the computer's asleep? Go into Control Panel and Power Options and recheck your settings for sleep and hibernation.

hey there ...

most of the time I can sleep my computer and wake it up normally. Sometimes, though, when I come back it is actually shut down. When I restart, W7 informs me that it has recovered from a serious error.

A few days ago I watched this happen. I had slept my computer, and through no prompting of my own it started to wake up. The screen blinked on, and just as fast it went away. The computer shut itself down in a not-very-normal fashion.

I did a bit of research here, but didn't find anything helpful. I did see how to attach log files and such, though, so here they are. I'd like to get this issue put away so I can not worry about it

Thanks for any help you might be able to give.
