Q: I get 60fps with games with highest graphics, but out of games, super super slow

Inside of games, my computer is awesome. Once the game is over, nothing is fast. Things take forever to open, and, for example, if I go into google chrome and type something into the search bar, sometimes it will take a couple seconds before anything pops up. Could it be a virus? Or maybe something else...

This all started when I got defraggler. I defraggled everything I could find manually, analyzing then slowly started degraggling chunks at a time because I didn't want to wait the day it said it would take to do a full defrag. For some reason, that seemed faster. Before Defraggler, I had to use low graphics in games, and my computer ran fast. Afterwards, they switched. Any help?

I don't have antivirus because I am very careful and don't go on suspicious websites. I've come to realize what "suspicious" websites look like.

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.)

OS: Vista is infamous for its constant annoyance to the user. This is somewhat unlikely, but it could be Vista slowing you down. I recommend upgrading to Win7 regardless.

Processor: The processor seems alright, so you're not having troubles there.

RAM: You may want to consider a RAM upgrade, as many applications (including games) do tend to stick around in memory until a restart. I'd have to say the lack of RAM is your issue. It shouldn't take much more, maybe another 1GB-2GB should fix it up.

Graphics: Nice graphics card, by the way. Beats mine ._.
AntiVirus: Well, the fact that you're careful on the Internet does NOT protect you from viruses. Not at all. I strongly recommend installing Avast! Also, I recommend installing MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and give your computer a nice scan with both of them.

Games randomly hang/freeze even on low graphics...

I have noticed an annoying issue with some of the games I play.
Basically I will be playing the game with excellent performance, then suddenly the game will hang (music from the game still playing etc, but frozen).
At this point I just have to alt-tab out, and then close the process.
The rest of the computer is still running perfectly fine while the frozen/not responding game runs in the background, so it doesn't appear to be your traditional memory/resource freeze.
With one of the games however, when it hangs, it closes the application itself after a number of seconds, and displays the following error: "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered".
I have followed instructions on the microsoft troubleshooting page for this error, to no avail.

I have installed most recent graphics drivers.
I have tried running the games on lowest possible graphics settings (even though it seems to run perfectly fine on high with most games I have).
There are no viruses on the computer. It is completely isolated from the internet, and has never been connected to the internet before.
The other thing I have noticed, is that this only seems to happen with my first person shooter games... None of my strategy games have this issue.

Firefox is running super slow for me at times and then just seems like it hangs. I can open Google Chrome or IE and they run super fast during this time so I know it's a problem with FireFox. Also all my games seem to lock up during GamePlay so I wanted to see if any of my logs show anything. Thanks in advance for all help and suggestions.

I live in South Korea. The internet here is unbelievably fast. I've done 3 speed tests tonight, and the download speed averages between 20-40mbps, upload speed between 40-75mbps. However, when I try to watch streaming videos online, it's ridiculously slow. And it's not just one site. It seems to be all of them. Youtube, Comedy Central, BBC, and MSNBC have all been really slow. I notice it the most around 10:00-11:00pm here (only because that's when I come home from work), which is right at the same time most Americans are starting to go to work. Is it possible that the United States 9-5 workforce uses up so much bandwidth on their morning rounds through the internet that it could devastate my access to streaming video here?

A brief synopsis: The majority of videos I try loading require an obscenely long buffer time (upwards of 20 minutes for a 2 minute video). Not always, but usually. However, oftentimes YouTube will only buffer the first 20% or so of the video. So after I play it for a little bit, it inevitably catches up with the buffer and I have to wait again. Even video quality as low as 240p still sometimes takes an awfully long time to load.

Does anybody have any theories? I was able to watch the presidential debate earlier today live just fine (10am here, 7pm Denver time). Am I just trying to play videos at peak bandwidth times? Are there any ways around this? Could there be another explanation? This has been a rather consistent problem since I got i... Read more

A:Super fast connection, super slow video streaming

Americans use the Internet non-stop round the clock, so that's not the probable reason. I think your ISP is throttling your speed for videos sites. You should contact your ISP and complain.

Just recently got rid of spyware from this computer. It was running just fine. I downloaded spyware guard, snoopfree, & zone alarm on my system. Didn't seem to have any problems. I went out of town on Saturday and when I tried to use my computer on Sunday, it acted like it had crashed. I reset my monitor, first and a pop up floated on the screen that had something like no connection found. Then I rebooted my computer without any problems. No sign of the pop up that was floating around before. However, my internet connection browsers (IE & Mozilla) & Outlook Express have been extremely slow, sometimes taking over 5 minutes to load webpages. My email has sometimes stalled and had to start over again and I get 4 or 5 of the same email.
I uninstalled spyware guard, snoopfree, & zone alarm, hoping they were the cause of my slow internet connection. NO such luck. I called my service provider (cable connection) and they report there have been no problems with the connection in my area.
I am ready to pull my hair out..... I hope someone might be able to help me.

We recently got 100Mb fibre optic broadband from Virgin Media, but it's been 2 days now and various speedtests report only 2-3Mbps. Other computers around the house get around 20Mbps (none have 100Mbps).

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron N5110, so it's not old, and I run both Linux and Windows 7 (dual boot) - neither OS gets more than 2-3Mbps. I've also tried moving to various spots around the house, to no avail.

I also tried downloading a large torrent (legal) with thousands of seeders to see how fast it would download, and it stuck at around 1Mbps, never any faster.

Why is this? If we're paying for 100Mbps, surely I should expect more than 3Mbps? Other computers on the same network get 10 times this so the issue is with my laptop?

Thankyou for sorting out my Desk top. (From which I am writing this.)

Now, my office laptop has gone on strike. It is an HP Pavillion XP. I have already downloaded HihackThis and the Analyzer, to C:\ HJT, but I am not sure how to disable the 'system restore' to begin the log.

It was going slow before I took a short break, and yesterday, having taken an age to start up, it then kept sticking. At one point I timed it taking 3 mins to open the menu from 'Start' and then another 7 mins to open the 'Programme' menu!

I did an NAV Update- 3 times -as it would not install after downloading. So, I followed the Symantec site advice and downloaded the Intelligent Updater direct. Then I ran LiveUpdate again. I assumed the virus updates would be complete, but they ALL updated again. But, this time successfully. Then I did a scan, but all was OK. I noticed, however, that the laptop was working much better after this action, at least it IS working.

Recently, (before this) after failing to download SP2 on Dial-Up, the hard drive crashed. I took it to a 'PCDoctor' had the disk backed up, and they re-installed from the CD QuickRestore System Recovery, before re-installing from the backup copy. (In fact, I had to return it to be re-done as they had obviously used their own CD not my original one.)

Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore. Click Apply and then OK. Restart your computer. After we are finished with your log file and verified that it's clean, you may turn it back on and create a new restore point.

If you have a fast internet connection (broadband), run an online virus scan at TrendMicro http://uk.trendmicro-europe.com/ente...all_launch.php. Just follow the instructions on the site to run the online scan. If any viruses/trojans are detected, try to delete or clean them in that site. Otherwise, make sure your antivirus program has the latest definitions and run a full system scan.

Please download Ad-aware SE and install it if you don't have it already. Make sure it's the newest version and check for any updates before running it. Also go here to get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. To run this tool, go into Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection. Also make sure to customize the settings in Ad-aware for better scan results. Run the scan and fix everything that it finds.

Alright so I have 32bit Vista, and I made a new partition to my C disc to create a dual boot with 64bit XP. My processor supports 64bit so I don't think that's my problem.

But when I boot the comp to XP I can't connect to internet and when I try to move stuff around like "my computer" screen or any folder, it moves in a laggy way and I think I don't have the drivers. And I have no clue where to get them. I searched yesterday for like 2 hours from manufacturer sites and driver sites but none worked.

I can also delete the XP and install Vista or 7 if that will be easier than getting the drivers or fixing whatever causes my problem, but I need to have it as the secondary OS (dual boot) and it HAS to be 64 bit, as I need to be able to run some programs that only work properly on a 64bit OS.

I've had this problem so far with oblivion (especially in exterior places with a lot of foliage) and borderlands,
The games run fine at 40-60 fps but when I move the camera around it looks very slow. I think it's ram because i had the same problem with wow on my old computer before i upgraded to 4gb as it was having trouble to constantly load the game in the background.
My current M15x has 4gb ram on 64bit but when I play oblivion the most ram used was only 57% although it was 44% idle, which seems high but there should still be plenty of ram left.

Any ideas whats going wrong?

Hello

I am interested in starting my own YouTube channel for gaming, comedy sketches, etc. I need to invest into customising/building a new PC including the hardware and software. I would need to be able to edit videos, play console and computer games with good graphics, and the ability to withstand the running of multiple programs at once.

Also is there any guideline as to the financial outlay I should anticipate.

I am not ashamed to admit to being an absolute newbie to this and do not know a lot of the lingo used.

If anyone could give me a basic guide on what I need to look for when buying and customising a gaming/video editing PC I would be very grateful.

Thanking you

OK, I do play online games, sims2, etc Some that require a lot of graphics power.

I have a 128 MB Graphics Card that I paid about 80 bucks for that seems to do a pretty good job.

My questions, honestly can you see any difference between this, and graphcis cards with 256 MB etc. that cost 200-300 dollars?

I bet it would be just like comparing Coke and Pepsi. Is this just some kind of scam by the graphics card manufacturers?
 

A:Super Graphics Cards

It's not a scam at all. Although for your purposes, you may not need the more expensive card.

The more advanced cards offer features that are just starting to be supported by game makers. A good example is Doom3, FarCry, and UT2004. The games are perfectly playable on my son's MX440 video card, but they don't look anything like what they look like on my 5800 ultra card in my bedroom. The textures used in the games look differently. Also, the games pause and jerk on my son's, yet they run smoothly at medium settings on mine. (My 5800 ultra card is not really what you would call high end).

I'm trying to save up a bit in order to get me a 6600GT card now so I can use the high settings. Anyone got $220 to lend me?

Everything on my computer is super slow. At first, I thought it was exhibiting many of the traits of the Cool Web Search that I once had, but now I'm not sure if it's somehing else. First off, I have a pentium 3 450mhz processor. Not exactly up to date, I know, but I don't think I should be having any problems neccessarily. I am running Windows98, have 512mb of ram, and a Motorola SB4200 cable modem with high-speed service from Cox Communications. I recently installed Norton Internet Security 2005. I regularly run it, along with Ad Aware and Spybot, religiously checking for updates every time. I always defrag and disk cleanup, and have recently deleted a TON of stuff off my hard drive. I keep programs that are running at one time to a minimum to preserve ram, but things just still seem to run really slow.

When I first got my high speed service, it worked amazingly, but now over the past month or so, it has gotten progressively slower, as have many of the other applications that are not related to being online. For example, when I click 'start' it has taken almost a minute for anything to happen and the computer freezes momentarily. I mention this because seemingly, it's not exclusively an internet issue, although my connection speed seems to be the biggest problem.

Hi. My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium. My IE version is 8.0.7600.16385. It's been working well until last night. Now suddenly, when I'm trying to go into large websites, everything takes halfway to forever to load.

I even restored to any earlier point. Still the same problem. (By the way, I had difficulty restoring. I kept getting error messages. In the end I uninstalled Kaspersky, restored to an earlier point, reinstalled Kaspersky.)

Any suggestions?

A:IE8 super slow

Hi Robert, loading pages may be due to your ISP's speed at any given time. Do you have another browser to test with?
Have a look at Intenet Speed tests and see what your results are.

EDIT: Also upgrading to IE9 has been reported by a few people to give faster surfing too. It should be showing in your Windows Updates now.

Hi,
I have a Windows Vista Home Premium machine acting as a VPN server. I have a laptop at my friends house also running Windows Vista Home Premium. On the Vista client, under the networking tab, I unchecked Use default gateway on remote network for both ipv6 and ipv4. The VPN works super fine and super fast. But, when I have the same settings on my Windows 7 Pro laptop, it runs fast at first but then runs like it is dial up. Sometimes, it runs so slow that it doesn't even connect to the shared files and folders. Please help!

Hi all,

My computer has been running pretty slow lately. I'm not sure if it's because it's 4 years old or something else. Every time I open Chrome, it takes at least a minute to load the Homepage (which is Google.com). The same happens when I'm just opening my files/folders. And yet, once in a while it's pretty fast. Not sure what's going on. What should I post on here to give more insight to the potential problem?

I truly need help and would be highly thankful of the one who will solve my problem.

Firstly, please note that an antivirus program such as AVG does not protect you from ALL the nasties out there.

I recommend you do a system cleanup using CCleaner, followed by chkdsk and a defragment.

Then I recommend you scan your PC for adware /malware using Spybot SD and Lavasoft Adaware 2007.

So my desktop just got really slow, so slow that it's impossible to do anything, just trying to get the start menu up takes minutes. No idea why, nothing new installed in the past 24 hours. nothing noteworthy. It's not a memory issue, got several gb on my ssd and several hundred on my HDD. it's not a RAM issue either, atleast i think it's not, should have more than enough with 16gb. I've checked for malware and viruses, so now i'm kind of lost, not sure if i should look for a hardware or software problem. only driver that's not up todate is my geforce game ready driver, and whenever i try to install it, it just get's stuck on preparing to install.

any and all help would be greatly appreciated, really am in dire need to use the pc, seeing as exams are only a week away and most of my notes are stored on it.

A:PC has got super slow...

It doesn't appear that you have any overheating or other eviidence of hardware problems.
 
Most of the uncommon errors cite McAfee and your USB3 driver.  I would (temporarily) uninstall ALL of the McAfee software and uninstall/reinstall the USB3 driver...and see how the system runs.  If the slowness disappears, great.  If not, we will try another route.
 
Java should either be removed totatlly...or updated.  When updating, all old versions should also be removed manually, as suggested at the Java website.
 
There's always the possibility of malware...we don't assess that in this forum...forget the possibility, for the moment unless you have reason to suspect infection.

PC SUPER SLOW

Guys,

I have a very odd situation.

When I am online it takes forever to switch from one channel to another when I tab.

If I play chess, the graphics also take forever and the website moves do not make any sound and
EBay=SAME.

I’ve done Disk Fragmenting, Disk Cleanup, C cleaner, Cache cleanup, Super Antispyware, Malwarebytes, autoruns and removed all graphics from My Pictures.

Do I need a faster PC as my Internet connection is at max?

Thanks

A:xp pro super slow

THere are a few unnecessary things in your log, but I don`t think there is anything bad. You could get an expert to check it by posting in the "Security" forum here.

Otherwise
256MB RAM is really not enough for XP to perform properly. Make it up to 512MB minimum.

Here are some things which can help

1 In msconfig, disable everything not needed at start up. It will also tell you if anything nasty is in there.

Start/Run/ msconfig
Startup
Keep the page open then go to link below.

http://www.sysinfo.org/startupinfo.html

Read the Key at foot of page, then click on "Here" at top. Use the Search box to check all your entries

2 Disable all unnecessary Services. The site below is trusted, but make sure to follow the advice carefully.

http://www.theeldergeek.com/s.htm

3 What do you have running all the time in the background? If you use Automatic Updates it will slow down the system.

4 Run Disk Cleanup
Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Cleanup
Click OK to clean up the "C" drive first
It will take a little while to "calculate"
Look at what is checked for deletion in the box. Make sure that "Compress old files " is NOT checked. The rest is your choice.
The main thing to check is "Temporary files" as they need to be cleaned out.
You should do this regularly

5. Go to
IE/Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Security
Put a check in "Empty temporary internet files folder when browser is closed"

6 Go to

Hi Ovie,
1. Download all by Free Download Manager - file - Did you install this program yourself? If not, I would strongly recommend that you uninstall it.
Uninstalls: Start>Control Panel>Add Remove Programs

2. MessengerPlus3 is a third party MSN Messenger extension that adds a number of useful features but also bundles the hard to remove C2Media LOP adware. The software does offer you a choice during setup to make sure to install MessengerPlus WITHOUT that "sponsor program"! Do you remember if you've installed it WITHOUT that 'sponsor program". If you did, it's fine, otherwise I would recommend that you uninstall it:

Download and run the LOP Uninstaller here: http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/downloads.htm

Close all browser windows, run the remover, reboot.

2. Run HijackThis again and put a checkmark against these:Blue hihglighted ones are only to be fixed if you've uninstalled them.

So suddenly all the programs I was running crashed with the "has stopped working" popup. Then, since closing the programs wasn't working, I did Ctrl alt del. Black screen and loaded for 20 minutes. Basicly, it takes an unwaitable amount of time to open a single program, right click something, or use commands. I thought it was overheating, but I cleaned it up with a vacume and blower (didn't put thermal paste) and it was still the same. Temperature seemed normal anyways. My hard drive is a bit filled, but not to the top. More like 70% through. Any answers on how to fix?
 

A:Super Slow Everything

You used a vacuum cleaner to clear out the dust?? FYI, a vacuum cleaner IS NOT recommend as it CREATES static electricity which can damage computer hardware.

What do you mean by "didn't put thermal paste"? Did you r&r the Heatsink/fan and not reapply fresh thermal compound?

What exactly is the issue you are having?

Any suggestions, help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

One thing you could try is to upgrade your RAM. 256 is way too low. Minimum should be around 512 and recommended is at least 1 gig. The other thing is that you computer could be infected.

Sometimes one step requires the previous one.If you have any problems while following my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem.Do not run any other scans without instruction or add/remove software unless I tell you to do so.

Hello smart folks,

My Dell Inspiron 9300 laptop used to boot up in under a minute. Now, it takes several minutes and any time I run a program it takes a long time for them to boot up. And, heck, I see delays in programs while they're in use.

I just upgraded from 512MB to 2 GB of RAM hoping that would help. It didn't.

I've followed your steps and I think my computer is a lot safer now. Thank you.

I run Norton antivirus.

I feel like the biggest contributor to my laptop's slowness is Enterprise Office 2007. Some little searching magnifying glass seems to always be on and my computer's hard drive seems to grind a lot even when the computer should be sitting there idle.

If I open a Microsoft Office 2007 program like Word, Excel, or Outlook, they open REALLY slowly.

Also, can you please recommend a good registry scrubber? I like freeware, but I'll buy it if I must. That RegCure program seems like a scam. Below is my HiJack This log. I've also included the start up log below it since my start up is so slow.

Thank you.
