Slow computer speed & e-mail issues

Q: Slow computer speed & e-mail issues

Hello, I think I may have a couple of problems going on.

A) I have noticed that my computer has been running slower than usual. It seems that something is running on hard drive. I don't think it my virus update because it is set to run only when I prompt it to.

B) My e-mail account is a concern. I occasionally get junk mail, like stock info or men's medications. I usually add them to my block senders list. I have noticed that some of the e-mail addresses that I block come from ligitimate sites, i.e. design/build firms or realtor firms. Can e-mail addresses be hi-jacked? The reason I ask is because this morn. I went to block one and my own e-mail address came up.

Would it be okay if I sent you a hi-jack this report for you to take a look at?

Thanks so much!

Preferred Solution: Slow computer speed & e-mail issues

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 am not terribly computer literate, I tend to figure things out as I go along. My internet was very slow and the computer was not behaving properly so I suspected a virus/trojan. I downloaded malwarebytes and it found 5 infected registry keys, 5 infected folders and 5 files infected. Malwarebytes supposedly removed it and when I run it again it finds nothing, but my internet showed only modest improvement. I downloaded k-9 web protection on 11/25/08, I opened it today and looked at the log of internet activity. According to K-9, my computer has made over 322,000 on web sites in the last 90 days!

The other day I noticed that one folder (and only that one folder) that I use allot has been beyond slow. It is a folder that stores mods for a game I play. I often delete bad mods or add new ones to test out. the issue I am having is when I go to delete a file.. it sits there for at least 10 seconds before the file shows as gone.. now if I "refresh" the folder it acts normal and the file deletes as it should. It is weird as no other folder acts this "slow" and days before it acted normal with zero issues. Just out of the blue this folder acts like it has to think long and hard about what I want it to do before It does it. It sort of acts like a storage HD that has not been accessed and takes a few seconds to come to "life" Again.. no other folders that I can find are acting like this. I have tried deleting the older and re creating it with no luck. I would just create a new folder for the mods named "mods1" or something but I would rather just see if anyone has any thoughts on why a folder would act slow all of a sudden.

Explorer with Windows 8 has always been slow. There is no right or wrong way to get File Explorer to speed up the process. You could try and turn on Indexing and see if that will speed up how fast the folders display results.

I could really use some advice on fixing some of the problems that I have recently encountered with my Laptop.
Problems; Extremely slow internet using google chrome, almost impossible to use IE 7, unable to view animated Luna Pic pictures on the internet, but can see them animated when saved on my laptop, (when viewing these kinds of pics, they changed to a tiny box just before they completely open up all the way).

I'm new here and not that great on understanding all the computer terminology but I will do my best to give you any additional information needed. I did see similiar threads but read that I should NOT do anything from another thread without getting advice so if this info was solved in another thread then I don't mind having a link put in here for me to follow.

I am using a Verizon Wireless Card/ VZ Access Manager version 7.0.13.1. I dont know if that will help you or not. I do have my computer specs listed, (I think they show up when you click my name?) I am using Google Chrome because it seems to be loading faster than IE, do I need to remove IE from my computer and will that help at all?

Please let me know if you need anything else.

A:Extremely slow Internet Speed and more issues

Also, I recently installed Malwarebytes Anti Malware, ran a scan and it found one thing and removed it. Below is the log for it. I only recently installed that because my computer starting running really slow, but after I did intall this, it got even worse. I installed it from Cnet. Also, I don't know if this will help or not, but the other day I could not get on the internet at all, I called Verizon tech support, they walked me through troubleshooting and had me enter a long password I had never known about to open up the settings in the VZ Access Manager, then he had me change some of my settings and also told me someone had changed them and that's why I could not access the internet, I explained to him that was impossible since no one uses this but myself and hubby and he knows less about computers than me, plus in order to change those settings, someone would have had to know that Verizon password, so how could that have even happened?

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me.

After the upgrade my internet would only be recognized after i would install the driver that came with the CD and what i think is an older version of it in the same folder. That's the only way Windows 7 would see a wireless connection.
Now that it's recognized my internet speed won't get passed 2Mb when it's actually suposed to be 20. Plus after doing something i don't really know what my signal won't go over two bars in five when it used to be always with three or more.
I have been trying to ping some websites through DOS and i have been getting 100% loss on everyone. Still i am able to browse the net very slowly. The Fact is that the speed variates all the time.
I have also been doing a lot of speed tests online obtaining various results. I have 20Mb of internet speed but on this computer i can only reach 3Mb, normally less. One time, one single time in speedtst.net i got 15Mb, i thought i had fixed it but then 30 seconds later i tried again obtaining 2Mb.

A:64-bit wireless issues. Very slow download speed and browsing

there are a couple of things you can try. First, you can open your device manager, find your wireless card in the list under network adapters, then select 'update drivers'. Let your system connect to the Internet to try and find a newer or better driver.Why did you do all of these:- DOS command "netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled"- DOS command "netsh winsock reset calatog"- TCPOptizmier: gotten only worse and i think it was when my signal started to get weaker.- Disaled IPv6 in internet options- Disabled QoSMy guess is at this point things are so mucked up (throw out the TCPOptimizer.. they never really optimize anything) that you may simply have to remove all of oyur network adapters through the device manager, reboot, and let the system reinstall the adapter. Once it reinstall it, then try upgrading the driver again as before. Right now it sounds like the adapter profile is so screwed up that it is just limping along on default settings.

Well, As odd as it sounds, I had finished playing a game of C&C generals and shut down my computer, and later, upon attempting to play again, it now plays the game at roughly 1.75 times the normal speed!

My computer is a Dell XPS Inspiron running 3.4 ghz processor, 1gb ram, 60gig + 80 gig HDs, ATI Radion 9700 video card, and Windows XP. I have tried re-installing windows, and nothing helps.

There are two internet services in my house.

There is a Dell computer running on Windows 7 that is having problems connecting to the wireless Bell internet. The speed is around 0.85 Mbps when it connects. However, when I use my Toshiba laptop (windows 8) to connect to the same wireless Bell internet, the speed is much better... around 6 Mbps.

I do not think it is a hardware problem with the Dell. When I use the Dell computer and connect it to the second wireless internet, Teksavvy, I get 16.24 Mbps (which is the normal speed).

So, this one computer is only having problems with the one internet service. Why? It needs to be using the Bell internet, so I can't just leave it on Teksavvy. I need to get it working with the Bell internet. Any insights?

Hello, I'm new here and I need some help, obviously. I recently went back to using my desktop PC after getting home from college. It was being used by my mom for about 6 months and there wasn't this many problems before I lent it to her.

The main things that bug me is the speed of the computer, the speed of the internet (which may not be a fault of the computer) and the ram. Firstly, the computer is fine after a reboot but it quickly gets laggy when I try to open programs and stuff. I think it goes hand-in-hand with the RAM problem. I have 768MB of RAM and it quickly gets used up. I dunno if this is supposed to happen so quickly... I don't remember it doing it before. I use a program called RAM Clean and it gets it around 500-600 usually, but after a little while it goes down and usually is around 100-200. As for the internet speed, I was on AT&T DSL for a while but recently went back to Road Runner... and there's not much of a speed difference. I used to use RR and it was MUCH faster. So either they slowed it down, or my computer is stupid.

Oh, I also randomly get these survey things pop-up in an IE window (and I use Firefox, so they're not pop-ups from a site... as far as I know.) I don't know if they do anything, but they're annoying.

I've run Spybot and AdAware, but they didn't help. I thought about reinstalling Windows to get rid of everything, but I can't find my disks... so I turn to you people.

My computer nowadays slows down terribly on random restarts.

For a while my computer will be running fine, until I turn it off and turn it back on or restart it. Then it slows down something fierce, especially when trying to load things, or use applications that deal with graphics. Then on another day when I turn it off then turn it back on, it will randomly turn back to normal for a little while until the same thing happens again.

I tried:
-running virus scan
-updating
-increasing virtual memory
-defragmenting
-cleaning the registry
-etc.

Nothing has really worked so far, and I don't know what's causing the problem. Right now, its in its "slow" state, and there's no telling when it'll speed up again....

I'm running:
Windows XP service pack 3
Dell Insperion I6400
Genuin Intel dual core
2 GB of RAM

If anybody can help me, it would be appreciated.

Hi, Newbie360. Welcome to TSF!

There really could be a lot of problems associated with a slow boot and a slow computer experience in general. For more information on slow booting, check here[1].

IMHO, I think you might just have overloaded the start up items, which you edit by going and downloading a very useful freeware called CClearner[2].

Also, don't use registry cleaners, they only hurt your computer in the long run.

Good Luck.

A:Computer Speed Slow

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

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

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

A:Best way to speed up a slow computer

Start by checking this out:

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

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

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

I bought a new computer last week, and i am connecting wirelessly to my router for internet, just like my other 3 roommates. My download speeds are in the 11-20 KB/S range while theres are in the 400-500 range! even my old low RAM computer is getting dl speeds in that range. I don't know why it is doing this, one of my roommates said he still downloads stuff on his win XP computer bc his new Win 7 comp is just as slow as mine!
Now, a series of stupid questions:
Is this a common problem with new computers in general?
Is there an easy way to fix it, such as utilizing more priority to download speeds?

I am pretty new to computers in general, so any dumbed-down info would be much appreciated.

Hello 7forums,
I recently purchased a new computer, and everything is running perfect except the download speed is very slow.
My old computer would average 1Mb d/l speed where as my new one hovers around 50-90kb. My brother is using my old computer on the same network and i got him to d/l the latest wow patch (so we were downloading from the same source) and it still averaged at 1Mb.
However when playing WoW i average anywhere between 30-60ms and my browing speed is perfect.
So to summarize:
My old computer's d/l speed is 1Mb, where as my new on is around 90kb,
After downloading from the same source the result was still the same,
Browsing speed and in-game pings are fine.

Last night we bought a brand new HP Pavillion a6838f with vista and began downloading different programs. Well we began to notice that although the internet works at a perfectly fine speed downloads go excessivly slow. I have read that Nortan antivirus is a potential cause but I was just wondering if there are any other possibilities that could be causing the problem. We recieve internet via cable. Also, plugging our previous computer in right next to us and trying to download the same program, the speed is considerably faster, noting that the second computer is using windows XP.

What speeds are you getting with it? Visit http://www.speakeasy.net and run their speed test. What should you be getting?

Are you using a router? Try it with the router and with your computer connected directly to your modem.

Could be the related drivers for your system. Visit the HP site and install all driver updates related to your specific model.

Hello,

I've recently bought a new computer but for some reason I'm getting only about 10-60 KB/sec. When on my old computer(which is now broken) I would get around 1 - 3 MB/sec. I've tested it on my mom's computer and her download speed is fine. My ping is fine, such as when I play online video games and such I have no lag or problems. And I can upload things at my normal rate as well. But my download speed just won't keep up. things that use to take seconds now take several minutes or even hours.

I don't know what the problem is and I've tried a few different solutions that I've found, some even on this site, but none have worked. So please if anyone can help I would gladly appreciate it, and I will give more information that is needed.

Hey people! My main computer's internet has been very slow. I'm getting only 30 mbps when I should be getting 150 mbps. All of my other devices get 150 mbps speeds. I get full speeds when connected with an ethernet cable. I have a qualcomm atheros ar9287 network adapter installed. The router I'm using is a Cisco DPC3848V. Any help is appreciated!
 

A:Very slow internet speed on my main computer

How are you connected, 802.11 "b" max is ~5.5Mbps, "a" and "g" max out at ~20 Mbps, etc. WiFi operates at the highest possible speed that both endpoints can support. For example, an 802.11g laptop connected to an 802.11n router will only work at the lower speed of "g". In other words, both devices need to support the same standard in order to operate at those speeds.

Also, are there any physical obstructions in the line of sight between devices? What's the distance between the devices? Is there any radio interference in the area?

Wikipedia: WiFi > Interference
Interference

For more details on this topic, see Electromagnetic interference at 2.4 GHz.

Wi-Fi connections can be disrupted or the internet speed lowered by having other devices in the same area. Many 2.4 GHz 802.11b and 802.11g access-points default to the same channel on initial startup, contributing to congestion on certain channels. Wi-Fi pollution, or an excessive number of access points in the area, especially on the neighboring channel, can prevent access and interfere with other devices' use of other access points, caused by overlapping channels in the 802.11g/b spectrum, as well as with decreased signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) between access points. This can become a problem in high-density areas, such as large apartment complexes or office buildings with many Wi-Fi access points.

Additionally, other devices use the 2.4 GHz band: microwave ovens, ISM ban... Read more

Okay, this has been going on for weeks. Even my pretty techie bro is out of ideas. My brother returned to college not long ago, but he was still home when it all started. I'd asked him to see if internet was slow or anything, and he checked and told me it was fine. A few days later my dad brought his laptop home from work. The laptop is only on our network when he's doing stuff at home - but I asked him, and I was for myself it was completely fine...and fast. And as my brother's now back at college with his laptop, my computer is generally the only one on the network, but as it was going on before that, I know their laptops weren't effecting anything.

Now that we're done with the back-story, I'll do my best to explain what's going on: The connection on my computer is fine. Sometimes it'll short out, but generally it's good. However, it's always slow - about maybe 2 times faster than dial-up. But pretty often it becomes incredibly slow, taking as much as 20-30 minutes to load something, even simpler things.

That's the best I can come up with right now about the problem. Resetting the router and/or restarting the computer can help a little, but it eventually goes to near dial-up speed, then down to when it's very slow.

I guess something to add is that I'm the only one with Vista on the computer. My dad's laptop has XP, and my brother has a Mac laptop.

I live in an area where DSL is not available, so I'm using a dial up connection (AOL 9.0) Our old computer (Dell Dimension 4100, Win ME) would get anywhere from 50 to 53.3K speed and when it wasn't locking up had reasonable internet speed. We recently purchased a new computer (E machines C2825) and the speed rarely reaches over 35K using the same access numbers. It has XP home. Is there a way to get the speed up? Even though it is a 56K modem, is there something that would limit the speed, and if so can I change it? Or should I return the E-machines while it's still under warranty and quit while I'm not so far behind?
 

A:Slow dial up speed on brand new computer

Is this the exact same phone connection that you used before?

A lot of things can affect the speed, but few have much to do with the computer or modem themselves.

The phone connections must be in excellent condidion since even a small problem with a bad connection or corrosion can make a lot of difference to a dialup connection.

When I first moved into "this old house", 35 was all I could get. But unscrewing all the phone connections and cleaning to bare copper, from the computer to the box outside gave me solid 53.3 connections after that. Even the connections on the modem itself and the wire going in can be cleaned with a Q-Tip and alcohol.

In the Control Panel under modem settings, some say speed can be achieved by turning off flow control (hardly a problem with new computers---old ones sometimes couldn't keep up) and be sure compression is enabled.

Check that all your modem speed settings are at or above its capacity, and look for the newest driver you can find.

If you like the computer and it works well, I certainly wouldn't consider returning it for this alone. New modems can be gotten for $10.

The number of other devices connected to the same phone line should also be limited. The more answering machines, extensions, caller ID's on the line, the slower it will be.

And limit the length of phone cords. If you have 20 feet of rolled up phone wire behind the computer, get a shorter wire .

That's all I can think of at the moment. Othe... Read more

Although there are quite a few programs where data is shared, Excel seem to be the only one affected. Have talked with Gateway (OEM installed Office 2003) with no luck in solving the problem. Repaired and Reinstalled....still no change. Even tried unhooking the router. This did eliminate the problem, however, I need the shared files on the network.

On my new computer the download speed (broadband) is the crawl of 0.81Mb/sec.using speedtest.net. At the time of test the computer was doing no 'work'. I noticed this slowness when downloading a driver update which was at .89Mb/sec.
Another time when downloading a program it was at .196Mb/sec. Now it is a consistent 0.81 Mbps.

At the same time of the test on three other computers all using the same tester, the same ISP, the same router, the same telephone line in the same house the speed is 2.01Mb/sec. which is the usual speed here.

The fact that they all use XP and have differing hardware should make no difference I think - if I'm wrong I can supply those details. This new computer has a much higher specification than the others but again would this make a difference?

I have done virus and malware scans.

Concentrate on the link between your computer and the router. Replace the cable if it is a wired connection. Use the cable from one of the working systems to test. Also use the same port as one of the fast systems.

If no change, swap the network card or check for updated drivers or chipset drivers if the ethernet connector is on the mainboard
Your router may also have QOS settings that give priority to one or more computers based on ip or MAC address.

Hi,

Frustrated. I had posted this issue nearly two weeks ago out of desparation and have been doing research across multiple tech forums to fix my desktop issues...found out the symptoms ain't unique.

Background: I began having slow internet issues, specifically downloads, with my HP Windows 7 (64bit) desktop about 6 months after purchase (it is a 1.5 year old dinosaur). At the time, I was running McAfee and kept getting the annoying "your firewall is down, click to upgrade" message. I ran Malware Bytes, uninstalled McAfee (so I thought), and downloaded my ISP (Comcast) Norton security suite from their site. Download speed situation didn't improve and then I began to get the Norton 5013,3 Error Code. As advised by one of the guys here, I ran the McAffee complete uninstall as well as Norton's. Added to that, my firewall was down, so I did a deep scan (nothing malicious detected) and then the popular BFE and other step by step stuff provided by a kind soul on the Microsoft community forum to fix registry issues. Firewall is back on and I am now using MSE for security protection - had enough of Norton/McAfee. Yesterday, I activated service on a "new and improved" Comcast modem which I am supposed to be able to get the most out of the speed available. My speed test for downloads on the HP desktop: 0.5Mbps.

Hi all.
I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite C50-A02-V running Windows 8 Home Edition.

I've never really had the fastest internet, but its always been alright for what I used it for... untill i purchased this computer. Suffice it to say the internet is... a little below sub par.
Heres a speedtest...

My phone, My sisters Laptop running windows 7, even my old 2006 IBM running Linux all are getting speedtests with Download speeds of at least 5-6Mbps from the same router, with at least 5-6Mbps.
And yet here I am, brand new computer in hand, with memories of dialup floating through my head.

I've been on message boards trying to find an answer to this for hours. I've changed the Wireless settings to not turn off the Wifi. I've checked Toshiba's Website and downloaded the latest WLAN driver. I deleted literally every last ounce of bloatware from the computer when I got it, so I don't THINK that's an issue. There's no torrents or security running either.

Basicaly I have no idea what to do.

Now the weird thing is if I turn the computer on, and do a speedtest right away, I'm getting a fast Ping and a download of 5 Mbps instead of the 0.6...

Any Help or ideas on what to do?

A:Impossibly Slow Wifi Speed, Brand New Computer.

Did you try an ethernet cable instead of wireless? If that works normally, read on...

I had a problem like this many years ago, it turned out to be something wrong with the drivers for the network card I was using. To fix it, go into device manager and find the entry for the wireless network adapter (eg "xyz wireless network adapter"). Right click on the adapter and select "remove". Reboot the machine. It should detect the adapter as new hardware and reinstall the drivers for the network hardware. Of course you may need to supply the drivers at this point if they are not available on the machine.

This is somewhat techy and if you are not a level 2 nerd you may want to get a qualified friend to help...

Hello.  I am on a computer that is using Windows 7 Ultimate.  When I start up the computer it is very slow.  I tried to uninstall some unused programs from the computer and there is a program that I tried to uninstall that keeps reinstalling automatically called PC Fix Speed.    

So far I have tried to restore the computer from a save point and it has not worked.  I am currently running a malwarebytes scan.  
 
I am trying to fix this computer for my landlord so that he can use it as a HTPC in our living room.  Thanks for your help.
