Sons gaming computer is running very slowly

Q: Sons gaming computer is running very slowly

I bought my son a custom made gaming computer for christmas. He plays online (Fortnite maily). The computer is very slow and when I go to task manager it says that 99% of disc space is being used. I am attaching my diagnostic page. Please let me know if you need any other info. Hopefully this is an easy/cheap fix.

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.)

Hello, why is my gaming pc running slowly?
It started like 2 weeks ago when i played H1Z1.
I have almost everything on low graphic settings (pro settings) i have like 160 fps when i play but sometimes it drops down to 25-40fps for like 5 seconds and then it goes back to normal.
It's not just in h1z1 it is in csgo, Infestation NewZ, Dayz, and more, it is so annoying because i can't play like normal.

Specs
Intel core i7 7700k 4.20 ghz processor
Asus Geforce GTX 1060 Dual OC 6GB graphic card
Asus Strix Z270E Gaming motherboard
Corsair Vengeance LPX 4GB 2400MHz DDR4 x4 so i have 16GB ram
Corsair Builder Series CX600 V2 600watt PSU
Be Quiet Pure Rock processor cooler
Samsung ssd 931GB
I think thats all.

PS. I built the computer 2 months ago.

Please help, my computer isn't very useful right now. Here's the deal:

1. My computer keeps on freezing up on me, and I don't even have many programs running. When my computer finally starts up, I log onto windows, and it takes seriously two or three minutes for windows to load; two weeks ago it took 20-30 seconds for windows to load. When windows finally loads, and I click on a program (ie. Internet Explorer or Opera Web Browser), it takes another five to seven minutes for one the programs to appear on the screen, then another minute or two for the program to load. When I close a program, it does one of two things; my computer will freeze, and I'll have to restart it; or, it will take a couple of minutes to close the program. And I'm just working with the basics; Internet explorer, opera, open office, and windows media. I'm trying to add music to my newly added iTunes library, but that's almost impossible.

2. My computer won't shut down. This computer is only seven months old, it's too young for such problems. When I go to shut my computer down, I select the shut down icon from the start menu, and expect my computer to shut down. Rather than shutting down, windows pop up telling me that the programs that I had been running are not responding, and I have the option to wait or end the program. I end the program, and the window comes up again, it's almost like my computer isn't properly responding to its commands. Again ... Read more

Hi. My computer has been running much slower than normal. When you open a new window or even try to select a user from the first screen, it really takes its time. Even once the window is open, you can still hear the wheels turning inside the box like it is really struggling to run its basic operating system. When you type something into a web page text box, there is a lag from when I press the key to when the letter shows up.

I have Windows XP and an AMD processor (I don't know which one).

Thanks
Eric

when i close out of firefox the cpu for the process firefox.exe goes immediately to 99% and will usually cause my computer to freeze unless i end the process instead of closing firefox normally.
when i close out of steam games, my computer will run slower than usual, even if i end all processes related to steam. my computer will stay at this slowed speed untill i restart my computer.

Hi,sorry for the very general description, but since Christmas my computer has slowed down. It is very slow starting up, and when surfing the internet it occasionally runs very slowly, and very occassionally it locks up. It never used to do this, so I'm wondering if there's another problem. I've tried using tools such as Spybot, but nothing has been identified as a problem. Thanks in advance.

A:Computer Running Slowly

Hello,I can't see anything suspicious here, but your problem is mainly caused because you are having 2 Antivirus installed. Bitdefender and AVG.Never install more than one Antivirus and Firewall! Rather than giving you extra protection, it will decrease the reliability of it seriously! The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, your system may lock up due to both software products attempting to access the same file at the same time. Also because more than one Antivirus and Firewall installed are not compatible with eachother, it can cause system performance problems and a serious system slowdown. I would strongly advise you to only have one Anti-Virus with the Auto-Protect feature running at any one time!If you decide to only keep one Anti-Virus installed, you should uninstall the other(s) through the Add or Remove Programs option in Control Panel.Also, I see Zonealarm installed. Keep in mind that, on some systems, it may indeed cause a serious slowdown, especially when browsing. This all depends what your Computer specs are. How much ram etc..I do not recommend Zonealarm when you have less than 512MB of ram.

Hi,

My laptop is having a serious issue.
It is running very very slowly. Typing often takes 5+ seconds to register, and im getting 10-20 FPS on games.

Some information:
Asus X750J
Got given it by a friend of the family cause it was "broken"
Wouldn't load finished usually, crashed shortly after loading at best.

Turns out the charger was the wrong charger and wasn't providing enough juice to keep it running.
Bought new chrager
Turns out the "wrong charger" had damaged battery, wouldn't hold a charge AT ALL.
Bought new battery
Formatted computer just in case.
Currently runs, but very very slowly.
Battery still having issues "6% available (plugged in, not charging)"

I know my way around a comp, but not a tech guru. My next move was to update bios, but ima bit daunted by that.

Hello. I've used these forums twice before with great success in dealing with my past computer issues and I am now helping a friend with her computer. She has a laptop which has been running very slowly for a week or so. It's even refused to boot up a few times (gets stuck in the loading screen). When it finally gets started, it takes a long time to browse the internet (just clicking on IE will freeze it up). I also know she ran torrent programs such as utorrent (which I deleted). This was not a well-protected computer in the past - I'm pretty sure the first time microsoft updates were installed was as recently as a few weeks ago.

A while back i had a problem with some viruses that got into my computer and pretty much rendered it useless for a little while. I recieved help on this website and the computer seems to be virus free (thats what they told me in the cirus help section) but the computer seems to be running very slowly. It boots up slower, when windows loads it takes a lot longer for all the startup programs to load, and when i try and start a program like firefox or microsoft powerpoint it takes a long time to load (we are talking like 15 seconds or less but before the virus issues it took like 2 seconds to open things like powerpoint and firefox)


Can anyone help me?

A:Computer running slowly

Were you running Anti Virus software before...if yes, what was it. I know if I run AVG FRee on my system it is really fast, but loose am more prone to a virus.

I just did a clean install of XP and quite a few others before that however, I know once I install CA on this system it will slow down quite a bit just from what it is doing in the background when I open a browser or other programs. I've run a few different AV programs and I seem to like CA because it isn't as intrusive as some others and it updates in the background with very little input from myself unless iot reminds me I haven't scanned lately. Also, CA is easily customisable when you install. I elected to only install the AV and Spyware part of it. I prefer to use Windows' Firewall.

I don't know why but my computer seems to be running slowly lately. Watching a video there will be some frames missing. When I tried fast forwarding it would take 1-2 secs to load or the video would pause and the audio would keep going. This just started recently and I tried to see if it was just the files but when I rewatched the files that worked perfectly before there was lag. Also when I'm typing there is a lag from the input and when it appears. The lag isn't that bad but its noticeable. Also there is lag when erasing text. Also I get an error message when shutting down my computer but I can't read it because my computer shuts down before I get the chance to. The only things that I've done was updating windows, installed a VPN about a week ago, and installed a SSD about 1-2 months ago other than that all I've done was watch videos and browsed the internet.

Have you ran the standard scans? I mean malwarebytes and a good deep scan with your Anti-Virus? Have you tried a restore point to before this started? Updated all video/network drivers?

Hey guys, my computer started running incredibly slowly recently, so I ran a virus scan, turned up a few trojans, and deleted them, still didn't fix the problem.

Long story short, I've run the following scans:
Malwarebytes
Avira
Avast
SUPERantispyware

Caught some things at first, they now all come up clean. I also followed all the steps in the "Is your PC running slowly?" thread. My PC is still running slowly. I also occasionally get BSOD'd. I'm running windows XP(32 bit), it's a custom-built machine, and I don't have a windows install or recovery disk anymore.

Below is the DDS, and the attached reports. when I ran GMER I kept getting BSOD on the full scan, so I ran it with sections and C: only.

I've been having a slow experience with my computer for the past while. It used to be pretty quick at loading and booting up in Windows and running games and everything, but now a days its starting to become somewhat sluggish. My computer is 4 years old so I'm aware that that could be a factor in its performance, but I also know that it could still keep up in gaming and such if a few things were corrected. Examples of issues I notice are slow boot times into Windows (part where its at the blue windows loading screen), somewhat slow shutdown time, slow time to load up tray icons (MSN, Firewall, Anti Spyware, Volume Control, ect), sluggish performance in games in terms of framerate even with settings at minimum (aware this may be a video card issue), slow load time when opening applications like My Computer for the first time. I was just looking for some insight and feedback to see what some people, experienced with this issue, may give in order to get my computer back running the way it used to be.

K, I'm new to this whole hijack thing lol but lately my computer has been running really really slowly, I mean it takes like 10 minutes just to start AOL and this problem just occurred recently, anyways I ran a program called Security Task Manager to see if I could come up with any processes running that I did not know about and do alittle research on them to see if they were causing any problems. Could someone look at my log file and tell me if theres anything I need to fix to make my computer run alot faster then what it's doing now? Thanks!:)

Oh yea, there was another process that was running called mainiis.exe but I ended the process and quarantined it but when I went back to put it back on it said that another one was already running at the time and it wouldn't let me overwrite it so I'm not sure... Thanks guys!

It is a HP laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium.
HP Pavilion dv9000.

When all is said and done, I'd like to have Picasa installed on it to edit pictures and Internet Explorer. Pretty much everything else goes unused.

Hi,

My machine has started running slowly over the last few weeks and I'm at a loss as to why. I've not made any changes recently and I think I can rule out malware, so it's down to hardware or software. I've attached a Speccy output if that's any help.

Many thanks.

A:Computer running slowly

Do you have the link that Speccy generates? The notepad output isn't as easy on the eyes.

Hello,

I'm trying to clean up my parents computer for them. They have absolutely no idea how to take care of a computer. They have Norton Antivirus, but no sense of how to protect themselves from malware. There's probably about 4-5 years worth of malware build up on this computer. I tried posting this before, but it didn't work. I'm not sure if it was the computer or if maybe I didn't complete the post. Neither would surprise me.

Please help!!

I don't know what the "freedom hidden window" thing is you are seeing, some more info or a screenshot would be helpful.

It might be associated with this > C:\Program Files\Common Files\Command Software\dvpapi.exe

http://www.google.com/search?hs=tyX...idden+window"++"command+software"&btnG=Search

I see it present on other scanlogs where that is a reported issue.

But it's quite possible that your slow internet is due to the parental controls associated with McAfee -- if it is busy filtering.

You're 3rd party firewalll may be a factor too.

I purchased an HP255 laptop for my daughter for Christmas and am very disappointed with it, it is extremely slow, purchased at Christmas 2016 it is virtually new, has no additional software on it yet, not even a word processing programme. However the machine is slow in every respect, it took an age to download updates for Windows 10 and this was using a high speed fibre optic connection. I have other computers within the home, both desktops and laptops and nothing is as sluggish as this HP. I am wondering if it would help to upgrade the memory and is this possible, it seems ridiculous to have to consider this on a new computer, especially one that has no additional software on it. Has anybody experienced similar problems and any thoughts on memory upgrade would be appreciated.

Hello,

My computer is running very slowly. I have an expired copy of Norton 2005 on the machine which I don't think is scanning anymore, so I have not checked for viruses/malware. I did do a windows scandisk which found and repaired a lot of bad clusters. That may have improved things somewhat. I do not have any popups or noticable malware running. It just slower than it should be. I use this pc for a single application at the office and it is rarely used for general surfing, never any torrent progs, etc.

I have attached gmer and attach.txt and posted DDS.txt below

My computer runs very slowly, often lagging for up to 15 seconds while I'm simply trying to move the mouse. I've tried running different kinds of scans and the computer crashes before they can finish, giving me a frozen black screen with a cmd cursor in the corner.

Panda crashed the computer before it could finish, so I re-ran it to about the point it was at before it crashed and stopped and stored the log.

Hi,

Ok, im not 100% sure where this should be put but since its to do with Windows i thought it cant be to much harm.

But the last 2-3 weeks ive been having major problems with my PC running very slowly, things havent changed like i have not downloaded anything what im aware off and its changed. For example it take anywhere from 2-10 mins to load up nearly anything when it used to open in a few seconds. also, while gaming i get horrible fps and terrible fps lag its awful to try do work and also enjoy my past time on the pc. so any suggestions would be nice also if you need details your going to need to explain im a complete rookie with PC's.
Also, while looking over some posts one said in taskmanager if a programm is running with 3 digits its a virus i this true and what should i do about them if it is

Thanks alot,

Hello Tech Support Forum Analysts -

Sorry for posting without this information the other day. Below you'll find the DDS report and attached the other two files you've asked for. The problem is that the computer is running ridiculously slow. If I open an Internet Explorer window, it'll take 2-3 minutes for the window to open and then if I click to type in a new web address, the computer will freeze for a minute or two before allowing me to enter the address. It's a continual cycle like this. Additionally, the problem gets worse the longer the computer is on. If I turn the computer on, it works much faster than an hour or two later.

Also, some programs have disappeared from the computer. These were programs I had installed in the past that my Mother does not know how to uninstall, like Microsoft Office and certain icons on the desktop.

I just installed AVG anti virus thinking there was a virus that was causing all of these problems, and that made the system run even slower.

Any help you can offer will be of great help.

Thanks,
Sara

I've been having a slow experience with my computer for the past while. It used to be pretty quick at loading and booting up in Windows and running games and everything, but now a days its starting to become somewhat sluggish. My computer is 4 years old so I'm aware that that could be a factor in its performance, but I also know that it could still keep up in gaming and such if a few things were corrected. Examples of issues I notice are slow boot times into Windows (part where its at the blue windows loading screen), somewhat slow shutdown time, slow time to load up tray icons (MSN, Firewall, Anti Spyware, Volume Control, ect), sluggish performance in games in terms of framerate even with settings at minimum (aware this may be a video card issue), slow load time when opening applications like My Computer for the first time. I was just looking for some insight and feedback to see what some people, experienced with this issue, may give in order to get my computer back running the way it used to be.

Hello,

My computer is running very slowly, and I cannot figure out why. I defragmented, ran a virus scan, etc. I also use adaware and spybot regularly to check for spyware. Nothing seems to help. I am confused because this computer has run well up until recently. It is older--we purchased it in about 2002-2003.

In case this is important--it is a Dell and I'm running Windows XP.

Can anyone help?

Thank you!

I've recently been having trouble running Starcraft on this computer. It's an older computer, but until last week, it was running Starcraft fine. I also noticed that the computer itself has slowed down whenever my screen saver comes up or I try to play a movie. I was checking my device manager and noticed the ! beside my display adapter.

It's a NVIDIA Vanta/Vanta LT.

The message that comes up in the status box is:

This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.

I recently installed a Wireless Router Reciever on this computer and it started running slowly. About a week later, the power flicked off and on due to a thunderstorm, then this computer started running normally again. The other day, my brother kicked the power bar off which has the cable modem, and the router hooked up on it. Then it started slowing down again.

Running XP with 700mHz processor and 320mb RAM. (don't mock me )

Any ideas?

A:Computer running slowly

The yellow Exclamation mark beside the Device means the computer can not properly communicate with the Device, probably caused by an improperly installed display driver.

The easiest solution would be to restart the computer into safe mode, and re-install it.

A:Computer Running Very Slowly! (HJT help please!)

hi, welcome to TSG.
go to start/run/type msconfig/click ok/click startup, uncheck the boxes for these programs!

Modem Event Monitor
ATI Control Panel
jusched.exe
CyberLink
iTunes
QuickTime Task
MSN Messenger
Microsoft Office

go to this site and download these tools and once you get both
adaware Se 1.6 and spybot, update both of them.

Set adaware to do a full system scan and deselect, "search for neglible risk
entries". Click next to start the scan. Delete everything adaware finds.

reboot and now run spybot

Spybot: Search and destroy.

Delete what spybot finds marked in red. After updating spybot hit the
immunize button.

reboot again
With CWshredder close all browsers and programmes and select the FIX button.

Go here and download Microsoft Antispyware Beta. First in the top menu click
File then Check for updates to download the definitons updates.

After updating look in the right side of the main window under "Run Quick
Scan Now" and click Spyware scan options. In that window put a tick by Run a
full system scan and then put a check by all three options below that then
click Run Scan now.

When the scan is finished, let it fix anything that it finds (have it
quarantine the items that have that option rather than delete just in case.
It is a beta program and there may be false positives)

Restart your computer.
All tools can be downloaded at the link below and found on that page!

Hey guys, I could use some help. My computer has been running very slowly lately. I have 67 free gigs of space, so I wouldn't think that's the problem. It's slow in the following ways:

Opening the start menu
Opening Programs
Running Firefox or any browser

programs seem to lag pretty badly when I have more than one open. Sometimes even when I only have one open. Could this be due to my computer's amount of RAM?

The computer is a Dell Dimension 8250.
It's about 3 years old but I try to maintain it well.
I've reformatted it once. I'd rather not do it again.

Here is a hijack this log incase that helps.

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks again!

A while back i had a problem with some viruses that got into my computer and pretty much rendered it useless for a little while. I recieved help on another website and the computer seems to be virus free (thats what they told me in the virus help section after we ran through some fixes, and my computer is now virus free) but the computer seems to be running very slowly. It boots up slower, when windows loads it takes a lot longer for all the startup programs to load, and when i try and start a program like firefox or microsoft powerpoint it takes a long time to load (we are talking like 15 seconds or less but before the virus issues it took like 2 seconds to open things like powerpoint and firefox) The computer is just running overall more slowly.
Should i post a hijackthis log and post my msconfig startup prorgrams?

The main issue is that her computer is running so slowly that it's almost impossible to use it when not in safe mode (which is the only way I was able to run these scans). I noticed she had utorrent installed which I removed though she states she hasn't messed with torrents in a long time. Please help if possible. Thank you!
