Super slow Windows 10 logon

Q: Super slow Windows 10 logon

Hi!
Recently, logon process on my Win 10 desktop computer is slowed down to 7 to 10 minutes.
Before that, logon takes less than a 30 sec.
SSD boot disk, Intel I5 processor, single comp not in any domain.
In the Event Viewer - Application Win Log I have following warning:
The winlogon notification subscriber <Profiles> took xxx second(s) to handle the notification event (Logon).
Where xxx is number around 500 seconds.
Event ID is 6006
Any idea?

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 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.

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.)

Welcome back to TSF...

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.

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?

I'm banging my head into an annoying wall here.  I thought it was licked a few months ago ...
- 2008 AD
- Windows XP Pro.sp3 and Windows 7.sp1 clients

GPOs as configured work beautifully with Windows XP.  Windows 7 clients systems are bogging down in 3-5minute delays before reaching the logon box, then another 3-5 minute delay for domain users to reach the desktop.

On the Windows 7 clients, I've tried:
- disabled IPv6
- disabled autotuning
- disabled card reader device
- drivers are ALL latest
- problem is occuring with All Windows 7 clients, regardless of hardware.
- there are three different Windows 7 images live, built from different sources, including an OEM oobe image.
- several other registry hacks amongst the bajillion pages of folks having similar issues.

Let me reiterate, the GPOs work flawlessly on WXP.  The Windows 7 client Desktop is not a solid colour, is a wallpaper, and there aren't any printer mapping being applied; besides... they have SP1 installed which is supposed to take care of that particular
nonsense.

Whether the domain user is limited/mandatory/roaming profile or normally generated from the local\Default profile doesn't matter... it especially wouldn't matter the slightest in explaining the delay to reach the logon box to begin with.

DCs (4... one is radius) are 2008.sp2  Enterprise  native mode (though gpresult from connected clients shows Domain Type as Windows 2000)

I am working on a computer for my boss. Its an all-in-one pc with touch-screen capabilities and obviously running windows 7. She informed me that it would run very very slow on her when she tries to use it. I can confirm that it takes several minutes just to pull up start menu let alone something like a browser. I have checked for virus and none are apparent. The computer runs Norton Internet Security and I also had it perform an online scan from the symantec website. Neither found anything. After checking MSCONFIG and disabling all but the process used for ATI, I restarted the computer and booted normally. It worked fine at first but then slowed down again.

This is what comes from running Hijack This. If anyone can see something I have missed or provide some helpful info I would greatly appreciate it. I am only a few steps away from reinstalling windows at this point but I would rather not do that. Thank you for your time.

Hey guys,

about a few weeks ago i started seeing my copmuter running soo slow! i have windows 7 and had upgraded to IE 9, which may have been my first mistake. But Everything seems to be running so slow, clicking on a folder to open will take a minute, and windows EXPLORER seems to crash often. I also see the little timer all the time on my mouse. I have to often terminate my programs (via task manager) i do have an antivirus and a few programms running in the background (that i know about) but have had them for a while. I did also run all my spyware, virus, malaware programs to check and they all come back fine. Even the FULL scan which takes some time. I know i could probably wipe the hard drive and start over but thats a last resort. I also have Hijack this and not sure if that will help. I can post my log file if you want. I have tried a clean boot and that helped a little, i "disabled all" things except for windows programs, but it still wasnt perfect.

Thanks for the help!!

Has anyone else gotten this trouble?  The computer works fine (for the most part) but takes for ever to shut down.  Boots up fast, goes into hibernation without trouble, comes back out fast, just takes forever (5 minutes easy) to shut down.  The only trouble I have with it is that every so often (roughly once a week) I have to go through a complete shut down and reboot process because chrome and a few other programs stop working right.  When I click the button to open them the process in task manager shows up but the window doesn't.  I can try again and again but all I get is a stack of processes and no chrome.  Any ideas or is this just kinda normal?

A:Super Slow after Windows Installation

It's probably due to a lack of drivers. Windows can't find proper drivers for all the different types of hardware available. If your computer came from a retailer like Dell, HP, or gateway, etc...they should have also given you a cd with drivers on it.

If your pc was built by you, or you have lost the afore mentioned cd we can always find them online.

You can always check your device manager (right click My Computer > Properties > Hardware (tab) > Device Manager) to see which, if any devices need new drivers. They will be labeled with a yellow exclamation mark beside them.

My Dell Inspiron laptop came with Windows 7 installed in 2011. I had Windows 10 installed via download in August 2015. At first the speed was fine. Now my laptop is so slow that it has become almost unusable. I often click on something and have to wait 10 to 20 seconds for a reaction. Just shutting down can take 5 minutes. Looking in the task manager I see under Processes that my memory is 92% full, and the System process is using more than 180 Mb of memory. I have tried many things to speed up my laptop. I tried modifying the paging file size for virtual memory to a lower size, but then I kept getting low memory warnings every few minutes and my apps would close if I ignored the warnings. I end up needing a large paging file size (8000 to 16000 Mb), way more than the recommended size of 1396 Mb, to avoid low memory warnings. So of course Windows 10 is shuffling a lot of data back and forth to the disk, slowing everything down. I eliminated every app from opening on Startup that I don't need, although of course I don't know what many of the apps listed in the Startup menu do so I leave them alone. My anti-virus eats a lot of memory but I need that. Since I'm in Europe we don't have Cortana so that's not a problem. Can anyone recommend ways to reduce the high demand on memory by the System process? If so, please help, and using layperson's terms. I have a Ph.D. but not in computer engineering.

Can you please

Sometimes I get the blue screen that runs CHKDSK.
 
Malwarebytes free scan returned no malicious items and Norton has not found anything yet either.
 
In the alerts on the bottom right, one of the alerts says "remove Allureon virus" but that just takes me to an MS site that promotes antivirus software from different MS partners.
 
Looking for some help if you can.
 
Thanks!
Paul

So I let somebody use my computer while i was gone and ever since then I noticed its been running super slow when I try to do anything with the start menu, going through folders, etc. and sometimes it just freezes and windows explorer is forced to shutdown.
I also get a error message when i startup about "Error loading NVCPL.DLL" and something about cfp.exe and ituneshelper "has stopped working." for a temporary fix i just disabled ituneshelper at startup but didnt want to mess with cfp.exe cause i think thats my comodo firewall.

Yesterday I tried logging into my computer and was given the message: Incorrect Password. I immediately restarted the computer because I knew something was up since I was unable to remote into it from my wife's computer previously. As soon as I clicked on the restart button at the login screen, I was given a Blue Screen with error code 0x000000F4. The computer rebooted, loaded the windows 7 splash screen for about 20 seconds then blue screened again and rebooted. This time I tried to go into safe mode but the exact same thing happened. The blue screen was up just long enough for me to see it but not read anything that it said before the computer restarted.
 
I looked online and saw I could try a startup repair to fix the error code. So I hit F8 during boot this morning and selected repair windows. I then started a startup repair. After 5 hours, the repair finished. However, after the repair, my computer has been taking several minutes to load each of the following: the windows splash screen, the login screen, the welcome screen, my desktop (without any of my desktop icons), my desktop icons, and a very select few of the services which are supposed to load while others that are supposed to load are not loading at all.

My fiance's laptop (not this laptop)....her harddrive ran into an error. So long story short, I formatted it. Didn't really have much of a choice. I didn't want to use my laptop as a test device to repair the hard drive (replace my hard drive with her hard drive). And her laptop's cd drive apparently isn't working. I turned the hard drive into an external hard drive, scanned it with EaseUS recovery software, recovered the files, then formatted it.

Since her laptop can't recognize cds, I burned the files on the cd to an 8gb usb flash drive. I bought a Windows 7 cd from a store and burned the files from it. Configured the BIOS to boot from USB. The laptop booted but it's soooo slow. It will freeze on Windows Loading screen for 20-30 minutes, then it will go into a brighter screen that will say something like Now Starting..., it will be on that screen for almost the entire day, then it will actually go into the installation screen. Overall, it takes almost the entire day....maybe 2 days to go from one screen to the next if it requires loading something.

So the USB boot works, but it's super slow. I'm on the screen that tells me to load the drivers, but now I can't load them because the screen froze and I can't choose the folder I want. I originally selected the flash drive and it took 2 days for it to say that my flash drive needed to be formatted, and I clicked cancel. I clicked on the other folders but it didn't let me.

So I'm not sure what to do. The l... Read more

A:Windows 7 Installation SUPER SLOW on USB Flash Drive

You could do a simple install of windows 7 on that drive from another pc, and plug it into the laptop. When windows 7 boots, it should be able to adjust accordingly. Again, only if you do the install and then shut it down. Don't go all the way to the end of the setup, just the part where it states its completing installation and reboots. When it reboots, hold in the power button until the pc turns off and plug the drive into the laptop.

I have done this a bunch of times and it works just fine. I believe when windows starts for the first time it then looks at the hardware side of things.

This is my father's computer but I am trying to fix it for my mother because it is sentimental to her since my dad just died on christmas (we have had a GREAT week)
This is windows 7 home premium 2009 service pack 1. Basically the system runs slow and it always says it is not responding, on internet explorer 9, on windows explorer, opening up control panel---anything windows it does this. eventually it will start responding again on its own. it is by far the worst with internet explorer. i thought perhaps it needed some updates. i tried to install them but it just says it is starting to download, stays at zero and when i finally cancel it, it tells me it was a 8000FFFF error. i was going to try to fix that but all the information on it is for vista and i didn't want to hurt the computer further.

dad has avast on there but i don't think it is that great. i tried advanced systemcare 5 the deep clean and it cleaned up a lot of stuff but it didn't find any viruses or malware. however, as it is scanning under the full malware removal, i see things that say trojan.trace trojan.win32/agent trojan.win32/vundo backdoor.bot backdoor.frauder, there was also a worm IRC something and something about psw games mixed in with the aforementioned. these have to be problems, yes? advanced care says there are no problems.

2-3 days ago, system asked me to install some security update, I said ok, it was 538 kb or something. Ever since this was done, system booting has become super slow. It takes almost 2-4 minutes for the lappy to boot earlier it took around 1-2 mins.

It goes on & on at first with the windows logo .. I begin to think may be system hanged then.. I get a black screen for a few secs.. then comes the "Please Wait" .. then, "Welcome" - it gets stuck with the welcome msg for a little while, again a black screen for 5-15 secs.. then I get into the desktop screen with the WP & etc...

This doesn't stop here, (I always have my desktop complete blank, I mean it - I prefer no icons in the desktop as I recall some one once saying having icons on desktop can slow up your system at start up especially. I don't have any icons in my desktop including Recycle Bin, I don't want them either). Earlier, when I used to get the desktop screen within a few secs Start Menu used to be ready displaying all the options but now all I see is a blank menu with only link to "All Programs".

I've already scanned system with Avira, Ad-Aware, there was one Trojan yesterday & it was removed as well. Still, I had super slow loading today as well.

I would really appreciate if I could improve my system's booting process, I don't want to loose my data with a fresh OS reinstall.

Mordecai2 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! Lets's deal with the file retrieval since that seems to be the priority issue. You need to do the following:1) Purchase a USB-to-Hard-drive adapter for notebook drives (they run about $20 USD)2) Remove the drive from your notebook3) Connect the adapter to a working PC and boot that PC into Windows4) When Windows is up and running, THEN connect the drive to the adapter If this works properly, a popup window should appear on the desktop asking what you want to do -- choose the response to open a folder displaying the files. Then, drag and drop the files and folders you want to keep onto the other PC or onto a USB stick. Once that is done, remove the drive from the other PC and reinsert it into your PC. That long startup delay implies that the hard drive controller is encountering failing sectors. Instead of reading hundres of sectors a second, when the controller encounters a failing sector, it rereads the same sector, over and over hundreds of times, until it times out.You should run CHKDSK on your drive to check it out.To do that, in the Start menu, right-click on Computer and select Open.Then, right-click on the C drive and select properties.Then, Tools, and then Error checking.It will ask you to reboot to do the check (as it can't do that while Windows is running).When it reboots, it will run the CHKDSK utility. See if it reports finding any bad sectors.If it does, it should mark th... Read more

Files 560MB and smaller transfer fine. I don't know where the exact breaking point is between 560 and 1GB.

Hi,

I am trying to install Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with SP 1 original unmodified MS Technet ISO to a blank Crucial RealSSD C300 SSD drive and it is taking hours to do that. The last time I did the install it took almost 4 hours to copy the files, I tried it from a DVD drive and from an external USB-HDD and there was no speed difference. After the installation was done, the SSD was very fast though, no problems at all then.

Now I have to install again and I do not want to wait again a half day just for the files to copy, so I hope anyone can point me towards a solution for this problem.

My Mainboard is a ASROCK 870 Extreme 3 , I use AHCI , AMD AHCI Bios is disabled and AHCI is enabled for SATA3_5 and 6 .

Thanks for any help.

A:Super slow Windows install on Asrock 870 Extreme 3 with RealSSD C300

Are you booting the installer and not running it from another OS?

If so then I'd download another ISO, try writing to flash stick using Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool.
Boot under USB, Removable or HD's. Flash stick install is known to be faster.

You could have a bad DVD burn - if necessary to use DVD, burn with ImgBurn at 4x speed.

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals and try SSD in first SATA port in AHCI mode.

On a side note if im in folder A and I move a small file to folder B even if there all on C DRIVE it takes awhile to move it Now I remember on my old desktop I had 5 years ago moving a file from folder to folder was instant, so im unsure why it acts like im moving super large files.

few months old. I had computer issues had format I have 3 partitions which I don't know why happpned after recovery one is a windows backup I think so I can format again if I need then my hd then the other one im not sure but one is system one is system recovery one is my hd.

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.

RELEVANCY SCORE 50.8

I am runniing win7 starter, my net book is only 9 mo. old but it started running super slow and occasionally crashing about 2 months ago. I have no idea why! I have MBAM already as well as AVAST av but whatever is causing this snuck by those two. I have also been running Spybot and oddly it cannot find anything to clean on my system, so I suspect a trojan or some virus. My page file and system usage are extremely high (80-100%, even when I am doing nothing!) versus what it was 3 months ago. I tried system restore a few times but no luck. I appreciate any help anyone can offer me. I need my netbook for school and I am very stressed not being able to use it normally. I have all of the logs below: I had to run HJT in safe mode b/c my system crashed while I was running it in normal mode, plus it gave me a pop up that my .hosts file was locked and that I do not have access to it (odd since I am the admin and only person who usese my cpu).

A:Win7 Starter, running super slow, windows crashing. All logs posted

I forgot to mention also that my FN keys are not all working, namely the ones that control the sound, the wireless/bluetooth/, and the task manager. I dont know if this was something that I did but the system restores that I performed did not help with this either.
