Computer is slow after on for a long time, fine after reboot

Q: Computer is slow after on for a long time, fine after reboot

Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.4
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 60 Stepping 3
Processor Count: 8
RAM: 8131 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 720, -2048 Mb
Hard Drives: C: 920 GB (644 GB Free); D: 9 GB (1 GB Free); J: 931 GB (694 GB Free); K: 931 GB (828 GB Free);
Motherboard: Hewlett-Packard, 2AF7
Antivirus: Norton Security, Enabled and Updated

My system:
HP Envy 700-215xt
64 Bit operating system
2 year old desktop tower
I run Norton Security and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Home (Premium) and Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Premium for the last year

My issue:
About 3 week ago my computer started to run slow when webpages load(I typically leave my computer on 24/7) so I rebooted and it started to run just fine. Then about 24-36 hours later I noticed it running slow again when loading webpages. By running slow I mean, the mouse would freeze up as I would try to move it while the page was loading, once the page loads the mouse moves around freely. I do not notice the mouse freeze while loading large computer programs such as full version of Photoshop or Power Director. It only seams to happen when loading webpages. This holds true no matter if I use Chrome, Firefox or Edge. So it has consistently started running slow after being on for 24 to 48 hours. It seems to get worse the longer it is on, but always runs fine after a reboot. It also seems that the webpages load faster after a reboot compare to before the reboot when my mouse freezes

What I have tried:
Ran anti-virus scans with Norton, Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware Free version and no viruses were found
Updated mouse drivers
Move my wireless mouse dongle to another usb port and replaced batteries in mouse
Task manager shows my memory running at 50% to 65%. I have reduced the number of startup programs and got the memory down to 40% but still have the same issue
Ran CHKDSK which showed no issues
Ran a memory check which showed no issues

Any help with this matter would be much appreciated!!!

Thanks

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Newbie here,
I have a Dell Optiplex 170 P4 2.8 512mb 40g w/13.5g free.
It seems to take a long time to start a program such as Outlook express or any Office program. Surfing from site to site takes dial up time to load a page.

Hey guys. These past couple weeks my computer has been running slower than usual, and has had some frustrating hang times as well. At this point my computer is fairly old, but I want to make sure it's not infected with anything and to see if I can speed this thing up. I've attached to this message my DDS logs zipped and my GMER logs as well. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi ! My name is Maxime, and I'm new to this forum. I made an account here because I need help, and I didn't know who could help me.

So, my computer is getting slow after a long time use (6-12 hours) and it sometimes crash, giving me a black screen, white screen, brown screen... it changes almost every time. When I'm resetting my computer, everything goes well, and my computer goes at is maximum speed (I think ). I think that it could be a virus or something like that. I've read something about decompression bomb last week, could that be possible? 3 weeks ago, I scanned my computer with the trial version of Avast, and he founds like 6 decompression bomb, that I manually deleted.

I'm using windows 7.

What should I do ? Here are the files..

EDIT : I don't think its an overheating issue, I've downloaded a program showing the temperature of hardware, and it's all around 35-40, which is in the average.

EDIT 2 : When my computer crash, I need to shut it down by myself, or it won't do anything else.

Please give me some time to look over your computer's log(s).
Please take note of the following:In the meantime, please refrain from making any changes to your computer.
Also, even if things appear to be running better, there is no guarantee that everything is finished. Please continue to check this forum post in order to ensure we get your system completely clean. We do not want to clean you part-way up, only to have the system re-infect itself. :)

Finally, please reply using the button in the lower left hand corner of your screen.
Old topics are closed after 3 days with no reply, and working topics are closed after 5 days.

Hi, not sure if I posted in the right section but just wanted to ask some help on how to fix Chrome as it is taking an unusually long time to load. It started just today a few hours ago when I logged into Facebook here in my laptop, I normally don't use it in my laptop as I just use it on my phone mainly and have a desktop at school where I submit my school files early to avoid submitting them on my laptop. But when I was forced to submit at home and use Facebook on my laptop to submit my files, Chrome then starts taking a very long time to load, about 10-15 minutes. It isn't an internet problem as were getting a pretty average 7 mbps, and strange thing is IE is working well and fine. Tried doing some research and some suggested it was a firewall issue but I doubt it, as I never tweak my antivirus settings. I tried this When Google Chrome won't start up | Computerworld Blogs but couldn't continue as I seem to be missing the debug.log mentioned and so couldn't make sure if I was having the same problem, so pretty lost at the moment. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Edit : Oh and forgot to mention, after the 15 minute wait for chrome to open, and while I STILL have the browser open, opening new Chrome windows is then back to normal. But soon as I close my Chrome windows I then have to wait lots again. And it seems no matter how many shortcuts I try to open, I remember I clicked Chrome about 20 times it only always opens just 2 Chrome windows

A:Google Chrome takes a long time to load, IE is fine

Just an observation that I don't see where you attempted an uninstall and reinstall. That would be my first course of corrective action.

I have downloaded the newest RTM 32bit Windoows 7 from Microsoft MSDN and tried to install it on my Celeron 2 Duo 64bit system.. Now when I boot the computer up the Windows logo comes, and then it stays there for 20+ minutes before the system is booted up.. I have tried with other versions of Win7 32bit also, but its the same everytime.. Is this because I absolutly need to install a 64bit version? I remember that I once had 32bit Vista on another 64bit system and that worked fine...

Anyone experienced this before?

Computer ran fine in the am. Shut down and restarted in the pm. Boot to windows was no slower than normal. When you click on any executable, program takes forever to load. For example, after clicking Outlook 2007, about 10 minutes later I can actually see my emails. Move the mouse to click and open an email, cursor disappears then reappears about 50 seconds later. Maybe 5-7 minutes later, the email message will open. The same scenario occurs for Task Manager, Windows Explorer, Firefox, etc.

Machine: HP Pavilion dv5000 (laptop), AMD Turion 1.79GHz, RAM 2GB.
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit (All current updates installed)

In Safe Mode, machine seems to be operating at normal speed. Reboot to normal Windows, it's still ridiculously slow.

From Safe Mode, ran Webroot, Spybot, and Malwarebytes. Only thing found was some cookies.

Earlier today, managed to run a few things from normal Windows.
Using BitDefender 2010; defrag accomplished, registry cleaner, cleaned cookies/temp files and virus scan (none found).

CHKDSK and rebooted. No disk problems found. Currently running WD Disk Utility.

Last program installed (5 days ago): Updated iTunes program

Ran msconfig and turned off any unneeded start-up programs.

Installed the CPU Speed gadget and noticed the CPU going to 100% on several occasions.

No improvements made so far.

Because it worked fine before I rebooted and now its crazy slow, it's got me scratching my head. I thought virus ... Read more

A:WIN7. Fine before reboot. Now extremely slow.

First, try this to see if Task Manager can identify the hog:

Quote:




Task Manager:
Also, you can monitor the system for excessive resource consumption. To do this, open up Task Manager by right clicking on the Task Bar.
Then select the Processes tab.
Then select the "Show processes from all users" button (in the lower left)
Then select the View menu item, then select "Select columns"
In the Select columns window, place checkmarks next to I/O Reads and I/O Other.
Click OK to accept the changes.
Resize the Task Manager window so you can see the most of the columns.
Wait for the system to freeze.
Look at all of the columns to see if there's anything that looks excessively high - if so, let us know the Image name of the process.
FWIW - System Idle Process is supposed to have high CPU readings - anything else with high CPU readings is an issue.




If that doesn't work, we can try XPerf (more info here: http://www.carrona.org/xperf.html ).

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.

and i am at a 100% loss, it used to run perfectly, super fast, never had a virus or any problems, i monitor my computer with avira free anti virus, malwarebytes, and comodo firewall,
it was running fine, and then over night, it started working really slow, the computer sounded louder than usual, and boot up took forever, programs took forever to load, and after they do, it still laggy.
I ran scans with my anti virus and nothing was ever detected,
this happened about 2 months ago, and i've been trying to ignore it but i can't handle it any more and i've looked everywhere with no idea where to even start or what to check. I tried doing a system restore to a date before the problems started, the weird thing is, the computer goes back to being super fast, just like it used to be, BUT my internet doesn't work, so i would go to cancel restore and it goes back to being slow, but working internet.

please help me, idk what to do or where to start, i'm usually pretty computer savy and fix my own problems, but i'm at a lost with this one, thanks

Specs:
- PC Chips A15G mother board, BIOS just flashed with the 2008/08/12 update
- 2x Western Digital WD10EADS 1TB hard drives set up as a RAID 1
- Fresh install of Windows XP using the F6 function to install the RAID drivers, updated to Service Pack 3
(I can provide more system information if it will help)

I just upgraded my home-built desktop from a single 80G IDE hard drive to a RAID 1 with dual 1TB SATA drives with a fresh install of XP using the F6 option and installing the required RAID drivers. The system runs great but it would not power down after shutting XP down. After flashing the BIOS with the 2008/08/12 update, things get weirder.

The machine still doesn't power down when I shut down XP, but will shut down if I hold the power button for 3 seconds or so. However, if I press the Reset button on the front of the case the machine shuts down instantly, but does not reboot. When I select "Restart" from the shut down menu, the machine shuts down instead of rebooting. Even further, if I go into the BIOS menu then exit, the machine shuts down instead of rebooting.

The XP install is new this weekend so if I need to do something major it isn't a big deal. Is there some sort of BIOS setting that I have wrong or is something corrupt? The machine ran completely normally with the 80G IDE drive.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Jimal
 

A:Computer works fine, but will not reboot when requested

This appears to be a RAID issue, try disabling RAID and pulling one of your hard drives see if that changes anything.

What I have noticed lately is that it takes forever for a program to open and form what I see in Event Viewer, Iím getting a lot of application hangs. I run SuperAntiSpyware and I like its success but Iím wondering if there is something here that it does not see as spyware. I have included a copy of Hijack This log. Con you look it over and see if there is something I should be removing? Thank you.

can you post a hijackthis log so i can better help you and get a idea of what is running.

some spyware programs give them self a very high priorty and this will slow everything down and also having too many running processes can also cause this.

Hey,
I am having a very strange problem with my computer.  My computer sometimes boots up very slowly, and hangs for long periods of time.  Then it works fine, then it is slow, then it works fine...  When it is slow it can take 15 mins or more to boot up.  I tried booting in safe mode, but I just keep restarting before the drivers are loaded.  When I boot normally, everything seems to work but, very slowly.  The programs load and run if you wait long enough.  While I am online, Firefox will report that it is not responding and then it will finally catch up and open the pages.
 
When it is running normally it seems fine. I have tried scanning for viruses and malware, but I have not been able to find anything.  This is kinda driving me nuts because I know my way around the computer and I can't seem to find what is causing it to come to a stand still.
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 is very slow and hangs for a long time

Well, first you could try disabling startup programs that are unhelpful to you to speed things up. Then you could run CCleaner and/or Advanced System Care by IOBit (i believe) but don't use their registry cleaners. Then try defragmenting your hard drive. And if nothing else works, you should probably fresh install the OS to an SSD.

Everything is working fine for now, but there's one problem.

I've noticed that the system has got slow to boot over time. It now takes 2 minutes 11 seconds (give or take).
Today I downloaded Process Monitor from Windows Sysinternals as recommended here
Use Process Monitor To Optimize The Windows Boot Process - gHacks Tech News
The resultant filtered log reveals that, of the 4383 .sys files that load, 6 of them take 1 minute 43 seconds between them.
The following file is an extract of the log (sorted by load time) showing the worse offenders.
Logfile.pdf
I regularly run CCleaner and similar programs and the system is protected by Norton. I have no reason to believe I have any virus or malware installed.
Any ideas how I can speed up these loads?
Please see my System Specs for details.

A:Slow boot. Several .sys files take long time to load.

My first thought would be msconfig/Startup/Non Microsoft Services.

Could you use this tutorial by Brink to post pictures of both?

Hi all
I have an Acer Aspire 4310 running Vista with service pack 1. It takes a long time to start and runs very slow. When I open Internet Explorer it takes an age to start and usually runs very very slow too. I've put the HJT log below (seems really long - is it?). Symantec doesnt work anymore and when the computer starts there is a little dialogue box saying it failed to start - and asking me to close the program and get windows to look for a fix. I'm hoping that someone can help me because the slowness is causing me to lose the will to live.

Thanks in advance for your help!

After I finally got the all of the tabs and the browser closed things were still not right. I restarted. After that I opened firefox and closed it. I reopened and it said it was already running. I waited a few seconds and got the same message. I opened up task manager and it was still running. The computer was still slow so I decided to do a system restore to 11/1. When it restarted after doing the restore I got a black screen with the mouse pointer. The activity light wasn't flashing so I opened up task manager and shut it down. I restarted and it was really slow to start up. Now, everything worked except windows explorer was slow to respond and would take much longer to open than normal. (Libraries button on quick launch). I did a sfc /scannow and found nothing. Next, I backed up and ran avast, superantispyware, and malwarebytes and found nothing all on full scan. When I ran malwarebytes I was in safe mode and windows explorer still didn't come up like it should in safe mode. So I did another system restore to 10/26 and it hung at the black screen again but I let it sit for about 10 minutes and it finally came up (this time with a box saying it was successfully restored).

And the hard drive is always clicking. It sounds like its working very hard, and then it just gives up. Sometimes it freezes while I'm working. Other times, I'm done and want to turn it off, and it will not turn off. Ctl-Alt-Delete does not help. I have to turn off the power to unfreeze it. I know that is a bad thing to do, but its the only way I can get it going again.

And then it takes forever to get going again. And each task I want it to perform takes so long. I click and nothing happens. So I click again. Maybe I get it mixed up from extra clicking to get it to do something, so it freezes. If I wait... eventually it does what I want it to do. But clearly, things are not right. I definitely know there are way too many unnecessary things that load at start-up.

I run SpyBot, Ad-Aware, Registry Mechanic, and SpySweeper every day, and they always find stuff, but that doesn't solve the problem. I ran HijackThis and for 2 hrs I painstakingly went through every item, checking on forums and tech sites to see what was good and what was bad, figuring I could eliminate the bad things on my own. But then the system froze and I lost every thing I had checked when I had to reboot (by turning off the power.) I am not going to do that again! It'll be a much better use of my time to let you evaluate the log!

A:My system takes a long time to boot up, is extremely slow and freezes frequently

When I leave the computer on overnight, which I very often do, when I come back in the morning my sound codecs are gone. No sound device can be detected whatsoever. But device manager says all hardware is working properly. Neither disabling and re-enabling nor uninstalling and reinstalling help. Still no sound. If I reboot, it starts up again with sound intact.

I was also having a problem for awhile where the .wav volume kept turning itself off. I'd turn it back up and within an hour or so, it would be off again. So definitely overnight .wav would have the volume all the way down. So I couldn't tell the two problems apart at first. But I updated the driver on the Realtek '97 and I didn't have the problem with the .wav volume any more. Though every morning the sound is nowhere to be found.

Many settings reset themselves. Silly ones. On MSN Premium I have several different email addresses, and each one has a different display picture that I've chosen. But several times a week, when I come back to the computer in the morning, all the pictures have changed. Sometimes they've changed to all the same one, and sometimes they're the various ones I've chosen but all mixed up and associated to different user names.

Sometimes the desktop wallpaper is gone or different. And the same with the screensaver. Its sets itself to none or changes itself to a different one than the one I've selected.

Thank you for your assistance regarding this malware issue.  My IBM Thinkpad R50e has begun to hang and produce long lags , when windows boots and shuts down.  Internet Explorer speed has also decreased.  Two scans by malwarebytes have shown "no malicious objects found."  What could be causing this behavior?
 
Thank you for your assistance

Hello,

I am running windows XP although i do not think that this is relevant because of the times at which my computer freezes.

It has been freezing for a few years (2/3 years.. not constant though) the first time it was freezing i used a electric pump to blow all the dust out of all the machine and it successfully worked so that it didnt freeze anymore.. although now its freezing again (and has been for a few months)..

I will be getting rid of the dust again tomorrow and i am hoping that this works although im not certain that this is the problem as I cleaned out the dust about 5 or 6 months ago...

The only spare parts i have got is a Hard Drive, does anyone think that replacing the hard drive will fix the problem?

---i cant test all this stuff until tomorrow so i am asking here so that i know whyat i need to test tomoz.

-thanks for support

A:Computer freezing (Been doing it for a long time...)

Why would you replace the hard drive, is it defective? Are you getting a blue screen crash, is the computer just locking up?

My pc is rebooting all the time,it works fine in safe mode.I scanned with Anvi Smart Defender.It found a trojan in the registry(path:windows/currentversion/run)The computer kept rebooting.Scanned again but nothing found.For a day or so i only used safe mode,then tried normal mode again and Anvi found again a trojan in same path and cleaned it.Still i got reboots.Then tried system restore.Although system restore points exist the restore fails.I had random reboots before but they were not often. Something else:few days before the constant reboots began, while i was browsing a white page appeared.It was exactly like the page you see when you cant connect to a site("page not found")only it covered everything i couldnt close it.Restarted my pc and this happened again.Windows dissapeared and this page covered everything.I used safe mode.Scanned with anti viruses but they found nothing.Accidentaly i found a file named msi.exe in documents and settings folder.The icon had a skull!I checked when it was created and the date was the same when white paged appeared.I scanned it but anti-viruses found no problem.Then,i found a site where it scans files using different anti virus engines.Only 2 of 14 said it was a threat.Then i used kapersky online scanner.It considered it a threat and deleted it.Later the same day,i found another file in documemts and settings(all users)which was hidden.The name was "feehopgp"(if i remember well) but...

I have been experiencing this problem for the last 5 days. I start the computer by first switching on the power output on my wall. After that when I press the power button on my cabinet, nothing happens. But if I wait for about 1 minute and then try again, the red HDD LED lights up and the fans start but still the computer doesn't start. After about 2 minutes the green LED lights up and I hear the beep and the PC finally starts. Whats the problem?

Thanks! Any help appreciated.

Hello-
My computer has begun taking a very long time to start up, usually around 7-10 minutes. Running xp service pack three. Programs take a long time to open but generally run well once they have started. When I look in task manager there seems to be too many processes running. I have disabled many of the processes that were being run automatically at start up but this hasn't helped at all. I've also run spybot, adaware, and Malwarebytes' anti-malware which have all turned up nothing. Any help or advice would be appreciated. (Sorry for originally posting in the wrong forum).

Hi, im a computer tech for a company, and one of my customers is calling saying that when he comes in in the morning and moves his mouse it takes 5-10 min before the computer wakes up. We are trying to figure out what the problem is but cannot figure it out. We've checked the power settings and whatnot but that doesnt seem to make any difference. Does anyone know what could be causing it to do this. Also the monitor is relatively new so i dont think thats the issue either. Thanks a lot
 

A:Computer taking a long time to wake up

You're not giving us any computer specs. That would help.
Also, verify exactly what low power setting the system is in. 'Sleep' can mean different things.
What kind of connection is there for the internet?
Have you check the Event Viewer of related Errors such a DCOM, TCP/IP?

I did some time on google looking for an answer to this problem, with no definite luck my figure it that some piece of software is pausing the shutdown.

I start my computer all is fine and good. I then try to shut my computer down.
Vista shuts down in about 20 seconds. This is how my computer normally works.

But if i get on the internet and am on for more than 15 minutes or so, the pages take a long time to load. When i try to restart Firefox, an error box comes up telling me that Firefox is already running.

I check task manager and it is, when i try to end the process nothing happens. In order to fix this problem i have to restart my computer. When i attempt to shutdown the computer the desktop just sits there for almost 5 minutes before windows decides to log off and shut down.

I have run avg 8, Norton, and Spybot S&D. In hopes of finding a bug somewhere but nothing has set off the security flags.

This has been happening for almost a month, two weeks ago i did a format and reinstalled all of the programs i had, thinking that it might be a virus of some kind. This still did not help.

I have also reinstalled Firefox multiple times and it has not helped.

Attached is a screen capture of my desktop. I have put icons of all the programs i use on there.

I run visa home premium, core 2 duo 2.0 ghz, 3 gigs ram, geforce 7600.
 

A:Computer takes a long time to shut down.

The Problem turned out to be caused by Norton's Firefox toolbar, Maybe a memory leak or something. Norton told me they are aware of the problem and are trying very hard to find and implement a solution.

Until that time, I have uninstalled Norton 360 2.0 and am now using Zone Alarm Security Suite. Haven't decided whether I will go back to Norton; lately it has been nothing but disappointments from them.

Hello, I'm currently writing from an Ubuntu computer, but my Windows 7 computer must have some serious issue...

It is taking extreme lengths of time to boot up and even longer times to load its programs.

The program taking the longest is Skype, and after it loads in, it seems like the computer runs just fine... Maybe a problem with Skype?

I really need help with this problem as this computer is currently my work computer and I need it very badly.

A:Excessively long booting time for my computer. Why?

Try to load defaults in BIOS (either first screen or exit menu).

Start in Safe Mode and see if it will be slow as well.

Hello, I have a problem with my system. When I wake up in the morning and the computer has been off all night long I will get a bluescrean after like 5min or so... After that the OS reboot and same thing again untill I shut down the system and wait 1-5min then start it. The it will work just fine untill I shut it down again and have if turned off for a long time. Next morning I got the same issue....


? Windows 7
? x64
? No, it's a home-build system
? I got the OS from my MSDNAA...
? From 3 years to 3 months (the oldest thing is HDD the rest is new.)
? Last time I installed the os was like 3 weeks ago (it has been reinstalled alot)
? 930 i7 @ 2.8Ghz
? Gainward 460 1GB GLH
? Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R
? Corsair HX 750W PSU


The errors I get when I see the bluescrean is:

*** STOP: 0x0000001A (0x0000000000041790, 0xFFFFFA800078CAB0, 0x000000000000FFFF, 0x0000000000000000)


Don't know if it's diffrent all the time or if it's the same. Have only looked for it once...

Sorry for my bad english, hope it won't be a issue for any readers.


Edit: Might add that I have runned memtest on my memories and also send em back where I got them from but they diden't find anything.
Has also tried with 4 diffrent motherboards (same model) and 2 diffrent graphiccards (Not the same model).
