Slow internet, slow video streaming, slow computer... aaaaah!

Q: Slow internet, slow video streaming, slow computer... aaaaah!

For some odd reason, in the past 4 weeks, my streaming video has become VERY slow, and I do not know why. I have a high-speed cable connection, the same I have had for the past 6 months. It is slow, sound-with-stil-images and/or constantly rebuffering, and this is true with WIndows Media, Winamp, Realplayer and even Flash videos (on YouTube for example). I cannot take it anymore. I tried this Hijackthis thing, and this is my log:

The only thing I see here that is troubling to me, is that I do not have Spyware doctors anymore (was uninstalled about 3 months ago), and it still shows up.

Also, the look and configuration of folders have been randomly changing themselves. For example, now, my "C:\" folder changed itself to a pictures style folder, and the tab (in Properties) that is supposed to be there for me to change it back to normal, does not appear. Also, the icons of "My documents", "My music", "My pictures", etc have changed from their specific icons, to the generic Windows yellow icons. Access to the internet overall is much slower, if not debilitatingly so. I did an ewido online scan, and did not find anything major. I also noticed about 7 svchost processes running, when I have no application directly running.

You must know that my Windows software CD that came with the computer is lost, and I do not know how to get a new one. I am running Windows XP, and my computer info are in my profile.

Please help, I will be eternally greatful.

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.)

First of all if this is the wrong section sorry.

Hello. This has been an issue I have been having the past month. I have Time Warner Cable Road Runner 30/5 internet and everything is fine when it comes to browsing the net, watching streams on justin.tv and twitch.tv on 720p as well as downloading games on steam. But when it comes to streaming videos its like I have Dial or or something. It takes ages to load/buffer. YouTube,vimeo,dailymotion,giantbomb , you name it it just doesn't load as fast as it should.

I tried different DNS servers and doesn't make a different. I tried other browsers same issue. I don't know what else to do. It don't get why video streaming is giving me a issue. Any ideas? Thanks.

I am running Windows XP on a dell XPS 200. Been running fine but a couple weeks ago it has rally bogged down while on the internet. Especially when trying to stream videos. Before I hardly had any problems. Once the problems hit, I changed all my accelleration settings, ran virus checks with avast and even with Trend online. I had superantispyware but it was locking up when I would try to update which makes me wonder if I have a well hidden virus or spyware. But nothing I have done has seemed to help.
Here is my HJT log. Any help is greatly appreciated:

Running older PC Clone 2.0 Ghz Dual CPU Pentium, 1GB Ram Win XP Home Edition system.

While navigation on Internet Explorer or Google Chrome, system runs extrememly slow and/or crashes. When using applications such as Itunes, Email, or simply opening up Word and other applications, it runs very slow and almost seems to stop. The IE7 that was on the computer had changed to an operate with add-ons off as a result of the infection. I downloaded and reinstalled IE7 and this seems to have fixed that problem for the time being. MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpy icons dissappeared from my desktop. When trying to use them from the Start / Menu options the programs no longer worked. I reinstalled them and they appear to work fine now. However, the system still seems to run very slow over all and its performance is greatly hindered.

Next, I ran free version of SuperAntiSpyware and all it detected was a couple Adware cookies. Secondly, I ran free version of Malware Bytes Anti-Malware and it detected PUP.GamePlayLab infections located in the Registry Key: HKLM\SOFTGWARE\Microsoft\Windows.... These files were removed and quarantined by MWB. Thirdly, I ran Old Timer's TFC and then rebooted the computer and it appeared to run a little faster, but still sluggish while using IE7.

Hello Bleeping comp.
I have a small Acer notebook which has been running fine up until this point.
Lately i have been having trouble using video streams from sites like gametrailers and youtube
the videos eventually load slower than usual but the sound is choppy as is the video, i can hear the the audio skipping very slightly.
Also the sound files (the opening startup sound windows makes, or the pop up error message sound) have been skipping and sound very choppy.

I haven't gotten any important error messages lately either.
If it helps i run VIPRE Antivirus software but it hasn't found anything that could be causing this.
Any help would be appreciated.

EDIT: i forgot to say that all other parts of my laptop are running smoothly which is why the problem is so confusion to me

A:Youtube, video streaming problems, slow computer

When you say small Acer is it an Aspire One with SSD? If so I found a small program that makes it run as fast as my tower, it has no issues with streaming video or for that matter nothing else!

sorry, if this not the right place please move. I did many google searches cant seem to find the issue Im having, or maybe lack of the right key searches. You guys are my last hope.
I will try to explain my problem as clearly as I can. And so sorry about my bad grammar and spelling, trying to post this asap.

first off give small history of my PC. I bought my PC new Sept 2001. A HP Pavilion with 1.3 ghz, 256ram, and a 55gig hard-drive originally came with WinMe, since then I upgraded to XP. I kept my PC case clean, didn't try to install programs my PC couldn't handle, didn't go to any sites that knew were bad with viruses and such also had Malwareytes/spybot/avast/hijackthis to use, didnt install any toolbars, and tried not to have many programs open at the same time. I basically kept my PC simple with use.

Anyways around June I noticed some odd slowdowns
While playing Winamp and running a torrent with speeds of more than 400+ the audio would become choppy. This also happen when I would open FF, IE or any program while running Winamp, the audio would be choppy.

Extracting 700mb files from Winrar would take around 8mins

Playing Youtube, WMP, of VLC videos would be slow and choppy.

Transferring files from one PC to another over a crossover cable would take much longer. 4gigs of files would take about 20mins or so.

Virus scanners, Avast, Malwarebytes, and Spybot would also take much longer than usual.

Hi,

I posted in the Web & Email forum, and they said I should post my HJT log here. I'm mostly looking to get rid of unnecessary processes so I can speed up my computer a little. I see various things here I never use--Spy Sweeper, Yahoo, AOL, etc--but I want to make sure I'm getting rid of the right things.

Thanks!

Hello there members ,

I'm working on my mom's computer again. Last time I was here it had a bunch of viruses, and the good folks here helped a lot to get it functional again. It does not have a virus now, nor malware, but it is extremely slow. Trying to play music from Internet stations or watch youtube videos online is impossible, and overall it feels sluggish.

The Windows Task Manager shows CPU usage pretty low at 4% or so. 71 processes running which doesn't seem high to me. I see System Idle Process, CPU at 99? Not sure that's it though. There's probably about 55% or so available on the C disk drive. I'm about to defrag it and see if that fixes anything, but I'm pretty doubtful.

I've run all the usual anti-spyware (Spybot + Malware bytes), and anti-virus (Avira) but that hasn't helped a thing. What are some things I can do to troubleshoot?

BTW it's Windows XP on this machine. Any assistance is most appreciated

A:Slow Computer - Herky / Jerky Streaming Audio Video

Did you used to have the problem before your malware issues? Playing audio and video online could simply be an issue with your Internet connection. When you say playing is impossible, what does that mean, nothing comes out, stuttering.... Have you measured your upload and download speed? Speedtest is fine, if you avoid hitting the ads.What sort of things are sluggish? Page changes, mouse movements, programs starting up.........The System Idle process being 99 means it's not very busy! 71 processes does seem a bit high but these days every man and his dog wants to run a service on your PC. Mine are currently 54. I would have thought that during your malware removal exercise, others in this forum would have indicated what programs and services do not need to be running.

Hey guys,i'll just get straight to the point here,i have a BT home hub version 2(the black colour) router to which i am connecting to via a Belkin n Wireless adapter.the internet itself is running relatively slower than usual,whenever i try to watch videos on youtube or on the iplayer.co.uk,it keeps buffering,i have to wait so long for it to load to actually watch the thing.Recently the engineer was at our house and found no problem with our connection,inact,our ISP told is that there was no problem whatsoever with our line.An hour before the engineer came to our house,i accidently uninstalled the wireless adapter and re installed,this appeared to fix the problem (for a week) and now,it has went back to being slow again,i have tried many things,such as checking for viruses,cleaning temp files,turning off hardware acceleration,changing wireless channel,disconnected and reconnecting,restarting the pc,restarting the router,this is the same for my laptop also,i really need to find a solution to this as it is driving me mad! could this be due to interference,or perhaps a conflict between belkins adapter and the router? i dont understand how it was fine when i accidently uninstalled and re-installed the adapter,and then i repeat the same thing to try to fix it again and it doesn't work,please,if you know anything of how to help me with this problem please reply

A:Help! Slow Computer, Slow Internet. Slow, Slow, Slow!

Hi MaryJane,Sorry for the delay, this forum is really swamped right now. I don't see any positive signs of malware in your log, although there is one thing that I am unsure about. I'll get to that in a minute.Before we do rootkit scans and use some other tools to confirm that malware is not the problem, let's do a quick check of resources.Press <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<Del> to open Task Manager, then click on the Processes tab. Place a check next to Show processes from all users. Note the numbers at the bottom, CPU usage should be running at 0 to no more than five percent if your system is idle (no background tasks running). If that is not the case, scroll down and see if any of the processes is running at a high percentage of CPU usage. On a normal system at idle the System Idle Process should show about 98 percent, meaning nothing else is using the CPU. The next columns to the right, memory usage and peak memory usage, may also show something out of line if one process is using a large amount of memory. If you see anything showing high CPU usage or high Memory usage, make a note of it.Now, click the Performance tab. The key numbers here are in the Commit Charge box -- The Total and Peak figures; and in the Physical Memory box, the Total figure. Make a note of these three numbers. I would like to see them, but I can tell you what I'm looking for: basically, any time the Commit Charge exceeds the total physical memory, Windows will have to constantly swap d... Read more

Malwarebytes came back with results? What were they, clear?

I doubt it's virus related, else you'd experience it elsewhere, not just a slow video.

Can you please elaborate on the interrupting? We'll need to know what is actually happening.. Is the PC blue-screening, rebooting, crashing? Or is it just the video is lagging / jumpy? Or are you streaming to an extender and that's whats laggy / jumpy? Are you doing it over Wireless, Wired? Are you on a GIG LAN etc..

My videos I receive and or YouTube videos and very slow and stop and start all the time. What can I do? I have Windows 7.

A:Streaming video - slow

This is mostly due to your internet speed. First, when you click on a streaming video, stop it and let the buffer load the video (the grey line ahead of the playing line). Once the buffer has completed downloading, start the video, it should play without interruption. To test your internet speed go to speedtest.net if your internet seed is .5 mb or less then it is too slow to play streaming video.

hi guys... I just want you to help me in this problem if its ok.. I have a Toshiba L510 notebook for about a year now.. about two weeks ago i was watching a video from animecrazy.net using google chrome as my browser. I just notice that the video took a lot of time to buffer which is unusual because before it was buffering fast. Then i browse youtube and watch some videos and it was fine and the video is loading fast. Then i tried other video streaming sites like megavideo and same situation with animecrazy.net. The video is loading slow... I was just bothered because all video streaming sites i browse except youtube are buffering slow...I also tried other browser like firefox and IE but the same happens..I am using windows 7 starter.. hope you can help me in this.. Thanks..

A:Slow video streaming

Does this happen all the time or only certain times of the day? I just ran 5 minutes of a video on animecrazy.net and it seemed to run fine. Have you tried pausing it for 3 minutes then starting it back up? I think that method may work best. Give it time to preload the episode and you should be caught up. animecrazy.net gets a lot of traffic I am sure, which means that its going to reduce the bandwith you are able to recieve through them, as is megavideo. I know with mega I have had that issue and had to let it buffer, Ill ussually start it, pause as soon as the picture shows, or ad dissapears, go grab a drink and bag of chips, come back and watch.

Hope this is the issue, as it seems it may be if youtube is running fine. If not, it could be a codec problem, have you loaded any codecs since the problem started? Youtube has a lot of 3gp videos, while the other sites most likely run mpeg.

Hi there,


Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running ComboFix tool:

The Recovery Console was successfully installed.

Please continue as follows:
Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix, link
Remember to re-enable them afterwards.

This is my first time posting a question on bleeping computer. We are so thankful that you are out there to help us and not rip us off. I think my computer is infected. My desktop starts up very slowly, my internet connection is slow (it's slow in pulling up websites and some never come up). I'm getting lots of pop ups (even though pop up blocker is enabled). When I go to open the control panel, a flashlight pops up as if it is looking for it (it eventually does open but it takes a while). I had a problem at one time with a lot of POS.TMP files and followed advice from posts on this site to get rid of them. Well, my current problems started when a friend downloaded a music program. I believe it was called Soundman. When I noticed the computer acting funny, I went into the control panel and deleted it along with some other programs I found (PPC Booster, P2P Max, Ron Tool Adsoftinc, Wyzo, Eco Bar). Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hello, my computer has been extremely slow on boot and my desktop has been hijacked with a message about changing it to a website. I also have a program called "error fix" showing up on my desktop and I have no idea where it came from. I've run Malware Bytes twice on the computer with numerous problems found.

Hey, basically computer's been a bit slow and tried clearing some stuff and done other things, but still no luck, to make things worse internet's been a lot slow and when using either firefox and internet explorer. For example when going on youtube some videos would freeze in the middle and i would have to reload the page, and sometimes takes ages to load a page.

So here's my DDS log and hopefully the problem can be diagnosed, thank you.

Hello, i'll be grateful if you could help us with a problem that we are having with our laptops at home. Let me to explain you, my wife have his own laptop at home, as I have mine laptop too, both of the computers share a wi-fi internet conection. I'm not sure of what's going on but the internet conection it's extremely slowly, sometimes when we reboot our laptops there is no internet conection. According to our ISP there's no problem with the internet conection, they said it could be something with the laptops.

Now, It's true that the two laptops are more slowly, specially my wife's laptop, it takes too long for any processes, I always take a look to the running processes and it seems like there are too much process always but I'm not sure of what is good and whats isn't.

I decided to attach The HiJack log from my wife's laptop, maybe with this you could help us to figure out what's going on.

Thanks for your time!

Hey I recently bought a new computer that is much better than my old one in stats but its not acting like it.

Windows XP
Service Pack 3
Intel Dual Core E5200
2.50GHz
2GB RAM

Now it was running ok to begin with but then the internet started having problems. It kept dropping out or fluctuating in speed and nothing seemed to fix it. It didnt happen on my old system it sat nicely at 54MB/s all the time.

Then the rest of the computer started going slow to start up so i got rid of some start up programs and desktop items which didnt seem to do much. And now ive noticed that when songs are playing in itunes they skip seconds every now and then.

Also when i click for programs to come up after i wait till everything is started up properly i have to wait a minute or two before they open. And burning DVDs has doubled in how long it takes.

Any ideas of what could be wrong, ive scanned for viruses using Avira and spyware using SUPERantispyware, ive cleaned registry using Registry easy and removed all unnecesary crap using CCleaner.

It got suggested that my computer was going slow because of AVG8 so i got rid of it and with got Avira but it slowed up again.

Ok, we just bought a brand new HP witha quad processor, Windows Vista Premium and have a DSL connection. We are having an issue with streaming video on the internet, mainly on apple.com. We try to watch some of the movie trailers on their site using the quicktime player. The movie loads really slow, so we have to wait like 2 or 3 minutes before hitting the play button. This is frustrating since I can view these videos on my friends PC which is older and has cable as their ISP. What could be the problem??

I'm not even sure this is a Mozilla problem but I didn't see a category for video software. I have an ASUS laptop with Windows 7 installed. I pretty much bought this to watch streaming video on. My most frequented site is LetMeWatchThis | 1Channel - Watch Movies Online Free - Just Added and my most commonly used streaming share site is putlocker/sockshare. I do not have cable, this is how I watch all my tv shows. This software always runs perfectly fine and out of nowhere two days ago everything is streaming RIDICULOUSLY slow. I've noticed it with putlocker as well as youtube. This is not an overloaded server because I've gotten onto Youtube at work several times at different times of the day and the 10 year old crap machines there stream youtube vids fine. I've had problems a couple times in the past and a plug-in check always solved the problem. Nothing is working this time. My plug-ins are updated. One forum suggested I uninstall and reinstall my adobe flash... did it: no difference. I've cleaned up my hard drive, deleted my temp internet files, history, etc., my disk defragmenter runs once a week so I know that isn't the problem. I've tried restoring windows to a date previous to the start of the problem and that also did nothing. I use the windows firewall program in conjunction with AVG free and I am not too familiar with firewall manipulation.

Some kind of trojan invaded my computer I believe. I ran Symantec and it deleted a bunch of entries but the auto-protect kept popping up to block something labeled Downloader and file "kernel32.exe" I was eventually able to delete it in safe mode after turning off the system restore. But then the auto-protect kept blocking Adware.Webbuying with file name qmlqrib.dll (both of these were in system32 folder according to the log), but there was no file by that name anywhere. I ran Ad-Aware which removed two entries with a level 10 threat assessment named BookedSpace and Win32.TrojanClicker, however the Adware.Webbuying continued to be blocked by Symantec. I then ran Spybot which found and deleted numerous entries and I no longer get auto-protect for Adware.Webbuying. However, I continue to get pop-ups, internet is slower, computer is slower, and it seems to prevent downloads after a certain point in time (haven't made it past 20% of a file from various different sites ranging from 4-20 MB). Who knows what else it is doing; hopefully not downloading my personal data. Please lend me a hand if you can. Thanks. I have included my HijackThis log:

Hi! I am new here. I heard this is a great place to post all my computer problems. I hope I can get some help here.

My computer is very slow and so is my internet. I can't manage to get some sites open because it is too slow. I do not know what is wrong with it but it looks like there is a virus or something like that. I do not know exactly what to do but I wish you can help me with this.

This is my hijackThis log file.
