Preferred Solution: Computer Running Slow and Lagging! Help Needed!

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.)

RELEVANCY SCORE 78.8

Hello,

I am trying to help out my mother on her computer and considering you guys helped me out on mine, I figured I should come back.

Anyways, the problem with this computer is it has a lot of junk files, folders and things on it, yet I am not sure which files and folders are needed and which are not. Along with that problem, we have the bad lag. Sometimes it takes quite a few minutes to load Windows itself as well as programs.

My mother runs a eBay business and enjoys downloading games and music, so I know that is some cause of the slowing down of her computer.

Attatched is a Hijack This log.

Thank you in advance.

RELEVANCY SCORE 75.6

Hi,

Below is the HJT Log, could someone please review this. Most of the downloaded programs (O16) on my log are not showing up on my add/remove list. The only program that I still use is Ofoto. If they are not showing up on my add/remove list, then how can I remove these from my computer?

Also, on my add/remove list there is a "BUM" ... I'm not sure what this is and have not seen it on there before. Could someone tell me what this is and if I should remove it?

My computer runs extreme slow and I end up rebooting two/three times an hour. Sometimes there is a lag every few minutes. Most of the time when I reboot my computer I lose my internet connection and need to unplug my cable modem and if that doesn't work, then I reboot again till I get my connection back.

If there is additional information needed, please let me know.

Thank you for your help.
Lisa

Hello

My computer has been running very slow lately and lagging when i I am watching videos on youtube. I looked at the programs I'm running in task manager and saw that something called svchost.exe has been taking up the most memory (40000 or so) when everyhting else is around 20000. Anyways, I ran a DDS scan and a GMER scan. But while running the GMER scan, I got a BSOD saying that a file "pxpdakod.sys" was the problem. Here is my DDS scan:

Hi there....

I am running Windows xp.
It's been a great computer wihtout virtually any problems until recently.
It' behaving very badly.... Too put it mildly....
Very slow... Lagging...
Takes forever to perform a task and I'm thinking there is a hidden nasty in my computer.

Other than it's slow performance there is nothing else major going on....

I am running Norton 360, which has been great....
I also have run Trend micro and some other online scanners which helped me to remove annoying pop ups.

Can someone help me to see why my computer is running so slow all of a sudden?

Thank's in advance

Ok, I'm working on a HP Pavilion XL918 with the following specs:

1GHz Intel Celeron CPU
256 MB RAM
30GB HDD
Windows XP Home Edition w/ SP2
AVG 8 free edition
Ad-Aware 2007 free edition
Spybot S&D 1.4 (out of date)

The system runs VERY slow and the CPU doesn't stay "pegged" at 100% utilization or anything. So, I'm coming here for assistance with malware identification and removal.

I've already connected the hard drive to a "clean" computer using an external USB HDD enclosure and was able to perform Ad-Aware 2007 and AVG 8 (free edition) scans. In BOTH cases, the scanning application hung or crashed. *Sigh*

I've downloaded HijackThis 2.0.2 from the link in the posting guidelines thread in this forum. Here is the HIjackThis log:

Hi all,

I went to use a friends computer the other day and found that the machine was running considerably slower than what it should be running. I ran adaware and removed a bunch of bots, but also found that there were 2020 running processes, which to me seemed beyond excessive. Is there a way to cease running processes that are not needed and keep them from running upon startup? I also ran spybot... Your help is appreciated. thanks.

IE 7 is running extremely slow and lagging. I have had this problem in January and had adware/spyware problem. About three weeks ago I had vundo virus with numerous popups, but between Norton Vundo Fix and the Panda Scan which claimed to fix the virus I had no further problems until about two days ago when my IE started acting up and the processes reporting that I am using 282,000k just to run IE.

Hi there,my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.Before we move on, please read the following points carefully. First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding. Perform everything in the correct order. 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. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me. Post all logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts. If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed. Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean. My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.    Scan with FRST in normal modePlease download Farbar's Recovery Scan Tool to your desktop: FRST 32bit or FRST 64bit (If not sure: Start --> Computer (right click) --> properties)Run FRST.

hi i wondered if anyone could help me with a problem ive been having. ive noticed recently that my computer has been lagging lately, even openeing internet explorer seems to be a prolonged process, also i have noticed while playing the sims 2 it lags quite a lot but i do remember it once running fine. its becoming a bit of a nightmare as i cant even play a game anymore without it lagging and preventing me from completing the task on the particular game im running. i have good system specs for the game and everything else i run on my computer. The only solution i can draw from this is that i have some sort of spyware on my computer. any advice at all would be hugely appreciated id rather get this sorted out now.

Hi,

I am using an HP dv6338se laptop.

AMD TurionX2 1.8 GHz
2GB RAM
Vista Ultimate SP1

Very Recently, explorer.exe has been running at an extremely high CPU, even up to 100% CPU. I uninstalled most of my programs, certainly any such as Limewire, uTorrent, etc, and any other that I have installed recently. It has not changed anything. I have run scanners from AVG and TrendMicro to remove any problems, but they havent turned up anything special. Here is my Hijackthis log. I hope someone can help me. Thanks!

I read that defragmenting the harddrive can lead to faster access times, i tried it, but it has not helped. i am sure it must be some bad programs or something. Umm... I cant think of anything else to add.. except that im fairly technical with computers, and im surprised i havent been able to fix it this time.

I've tried to follow the guidelines for posting logs... i hope it did it correctly...

Hello im having problems making my computer run at normal speed. It has been running slow for awhile now but recently VERY SLOW. It takes forever to boot up and any program I open also takes an eternity. Once the program is running it works fine.
I have scanned the computer w/ norton, malwarebytes anti-malware and spybot.
I removed all the harmful files. Spybot seemed to make it run slower.
In the task manager the CPU usage is at 100%. There are about 80 processes when I boot up the system.(seems like a lot)
I uninstalled a bunch of programs I never use to free up some more space and I also tried restoring it to an earlier date.
I gave it the newest updates for windows.
I deleted all the programs I dont need from the start up.
Today I tried running Malwarebytes' anti-malware today and it TIMED OUT!! taskmanager said program was unresponsive.
I'm not sure where to go from here. Do I have to wipe my hard drive??? Please help!!! It is a Sony VAIO laptop.

A:My slow lagging computer

<<I removed all the harmful files.>>

That seems to always be a presumption...by those who get infected. Of course, it's not necessarily true but users seem to like to say/believe it.

I guess that I have to ask...was your system infected?

Any error messages during this troubled period?

Hi,

My computer seems to be running slow! So annoying, especially lagging when i'm watching clips or editing. I actually have 1GB of RAM so i'm just wondering if i'm running too many programs because surely that should be sufficient for what i do. I usually fill up my HD actually, but even after getting the space back it still seems slower then it should be. I do a lot of movie editorial work so i need the space!

My Computer Specs:

AMD Athlon XP
950 Mhz, 1.00 GB of RAM
(Partitioned HDs)
Z:/ 120GB
C:/ 40GB

In my HiJack log i see a lot of Panda Antivirus stuff, but i don't use this program anymore and i've uninstalled it, yet there are still bits of it on my computer it seems...

Let's remove Panda completely first to see if it alleviates the problem. Make sure you install another antivirus program back though because as of now, you have no antivirus program running...

Download this file and save it on your desktop. Double click on it to run it and follow the directions...that should uninstall Panda completely.

I'm not sure what's been happening lately, but my laptop has been running kind of laggy and slow. My specs are as follows:

Windows XP SP2
Intel Pentium M
1.60Ghz
1.12GB RAM
30GB HD (19.1GB Free)
Software: Avast! AV, Comodo Firewall

I initially thought that my computer would only slow after I started Trillian, but I tested this (by not starting Trillian), and it seems it will still slow a few minutes after a restart. Restarting my laptop seems to solve this problem temporarily.

I have run the following programs to test out any problems, but they all come back clean:

Chkdsk
Defrag
Avast virus scan
Spybot S&D
Lavasoft Ad-Aware

Keeping it in safe mode (I'm posting in Safe Mode w/ Networking right now) seems to also keep the problem at bay.

Help?

Thanks!

I ran spybot and removed a BUNCH of stuff. But it is still happening. Do I need to stop stuff at start up? If so how do I know what to stop? How can I find out what's running in the background?

First of all I'm blaming it all on ram since this computer only has 256mb. But anyways it used to be a lot faster (by a lot faster I mean it didn't take 10 minutes to boot up and load everything). I would understand it if I installed a lot of things, but the thing is I barely installed anything and even at that, I didn't install any high memory consuming programs, all I have is basically a kodak program, avast and some hp software. So out of the 40gb I still have like 33 free.

I have scanned with every program I thought off and find no adware/virus/trojans etc. But I still feel there's something not right.

Can anyone tell me if this Hijack log has anything strange. On other news the comp doesn't have the dvd rom installed either. It's not installed in the hardware manager and it obviously doesn't show on the "My computer" tab. It was working when the comp. came out the package, so that's another reason i'm suspecting something gone wrong. Tried deleteling the upper and lower filters and still no dvd rom recognition. I'm going to run a Registry cleaning tool... any recommendations on this?.

So anyway:

Hi guys,

I've recently bought a Dell Inspiron 15 (7548) which has i7-5500U, 16gb RAM, AMD Radeon R7 M265 4GB.

Problem I'm having is that the laptop is laggy and sometimes freezes.

I've noticed the disk usage sits at 100% most of the time.

I've just upgraded it to windows 10 in the hope that windows 8 was causing the issue but it has stayed the same.

Any help with this (as it makes the laptop slower than my 5 year old laptop which I replaced) would be greatly receieved!

Thanks!

Whenever I connect external monitor or TV via HDMI the computer is slow/lagging (even moving windows or doing a right click is slow).I tried to isolate the problem and it seems to happen only when I use "Second screen only" or when the laptop lid is closes, if the lid is open and I use "Extend" or "Duplicate" everything's fine. Also, if I do reset while the monitor is still connected, it's working ok (but this is not a good solution for me as I want to keep the work evniornment).I tried playing with Display settings but nothing seems to help, maybe the community can please help me?

1. I have a Compaq Presario DeskTop. I am running Windows XP-with service Pack 2. Since about 2 weeks the computer is running very slow. It freezes when I open more than 2 windows in internet explorer. The internet is extremely slow. I see that some windows are trying to pop up now and then. Such as SystemErrorFixer, WinFixer Etc. I am also getting warning from windows defender about Trojan:win32/Conhook.D, Adware:win32/ZenoSearch. The intenet explorer is also not running as it should.

2. When I turn the system on the confuguration utility box appears with message that I am using a selective start.

3. When I look at processes running in Task Manager I see iexplorer running even I haven't started it. I also see several duplications of various processes running. Such as follows:

ati2evxx.exe system
ati2evxx.exe Compaq_Owner
lsass.exe system
lsass.exe Compaq_Owner
rundll32.exe Compaq_Owner
rundll32.exe Compaq_Owner
svchost.exe system
svchost.exe system
svchost.exe Network Service
svchost.exe system
svchost.exe Network Service
svchost.exe Local Service

4. In the msconfig startup I see the following processes running:

Windows defender
Bell sympatico Index Cleaner
Sympatico security manager
Freedom needs reboot Security Manager
Skype
Yahoo Pager

I am aware of the above legit programs, but not the following programs:

ctfmon.exe
PostSetupCheck rundll32.exe
LSA ShellU lsass.exe

My PC is slowing down. I noticed after trying to do video chats several times and the PC slows down and freezes after that. After running a diagnostics, I noticed one of the reasons is my RAM. I have 2 GB and only 1.89 is usable. I need to upgrade. I want to try something like 16 GB if it would let me.  Would I be able to upgrade that high? I read on the specs from another site and it said the maximum RAM for windows 8.1 (64 bit) is 1 or 2 TB.  If I could do it, how would I go about it?

Hi guys i,m trying to look at a laptop for a friend of mine as it was running really slow, its a toshiba satellite c650,

its a windows 7 home os and I have just reloaded windows for him as i thought this would be the problem but its still running really slow even after a fresh install and very little software on it,

have installed speedfan on it and its saying all is ok "well the cpu says 56c but dont think thats that hot?

i,m thinking now mabey its his HD or Ram?

anyway of testing or any ideas please guys?

A:laptop problems (running slow) advice needed please

To check for ram follow this : RAM - Test with Memtest86+
For general hardware this should cover it: Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95 (Three pre-set configurations are available: Small FFTs and In-place FFTs, and Blend. Small and In-place modes primarily test the FPU and the caches of the CPU, whereas the Blend mode tests everything, including the memory.)
Graphics: Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark (Do the Graphics test only with the latest drivers, and then Run it until the temperatures stop increasing; should be less then 10 minutes. If you don't see any crazy glitches or distortion on the screen, The test most likely passed.Take note if the Temperature gets too high, or you see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visual_artifact to stop the
test.)

****Make sure you watch the temperatures when performing these tests. These can help with that:
Speedfan : Download SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer
HWmonitor: CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting
Also the stress tests may require some time, to complete. If these come out good, then i would suggest 1st to try updating drivers while second being to call the manufacturer.

I tried a search to see if I could find my problem and nothing seems to really fit. I have defragmented and ran disc clean-up, I have also ran complete spyware & virus scans, (I have CA Security Suite). Now that I have told you everything (that I can think of) that I've tried so far; here is/are my problems:
My computer starts up extremly slow, once it's started it's now showing that it's low on virtual memory at line such & such (it's rarely the same). Right before I wrote this it said it was adding more virtual memory so that may have fixed this particular issue but is there a way that I can add more virtual memory if/when I get this error? I'm sure I have too many if not ALL programs running when I start my computer; I need to know how to find what is starting at "start up" and where I can change to not start unless I start it manually. I have looked in "start up" and it shows that nothing is starting and I know that can't be right. I've tried checking the task manager and under the first tab it doesn't show anything that I don't know about; however under processes there is a huge list of stuff that I only know what about a handful of stuff is...is this where I need to look?

I also have a bunch of stuff that shows up on my add/remove programs list that I'm not sure of what it is; some things look like they're there twice. I am virtually computer illeterate (meaning the "code"... Read more

Hey, thanks in advance for your help. I just installed a second hard drive into my PC (because the external case i had it in wouldnt turn on all of a sudden) and pc started doing something weird. My PC was running SO SO SLOW, I coudln't get My COmputer to open, and it kept popping up to say that folder on my hard drive are "corrupt and unreadable". I restarted the PC, and that disc check thing started running (you know that thing you usually press any key to skip when you havent turned the PC off properly). Then it went through every file on my drive saying stuff like "Recovering Orphaned File" and "index error on $130". That has finnised now and windows has loaded, it's not telling me folders are corrupt, but i still can't get MY Compuer to open, and Windows is running rediculously slow. It's 5 mins for notepad to open. The start menu runs like normal, but everything else is rediculous.

Just to clarify, windows and all software is running of the original hard drive (40GB) not the new one (250GB)

I'm failry sure all the ribbon cables are connected. I paid particular attention to that. I can't partition and format the hard drive because I have vital information on it that I CAN NOT loose. I'm a 3rd year multimedia student, and all my assignemnts (on the drive) are due in 3 days. I THINK that the 40GB drive is FAT32 and the 250GB is NTFS, as far as I know. I'm running Windows XP Pro (originally came with W... Read more

A:URGENT HELP NEEDED! installed 2nd hard drive. PC running stupidly slow

To be honest, it doesn't sound good. I assume that the drive with the errors was the former external drive with your class assignments on it. Have you tried disconnecting the second drive and booting to Windows to see if it runs normally?

Recently my computer has started booting up very slowly, and after it boots up the CPU or the fan (not sure which) stayed revved up. If I check the task manager idle system process is running at 98-99% all the time. I know this is a measure of how often the CPU is idle, but I don't recall it always being so high.

If I start the task manager as soon as my computer lets me when I boot up all my CPU is going to idle system process for some reason, instead of booting things up.

Its been awhile, but I seem to recall that some problems can make it look like idle process time when in reality something else is actually wrong.

I get random lag when I open a program. Firefox for example, will load just fine, but then I try to click something and the computer momentarily freezes. Its not just Firefox though, it happens when I open up "My Documents" or Pidgin or anything.

I ran Microsoft Security Essentials, Malware Bytes, and Spybot S&D, all of them came back clean.

I would post stuff from Belarc Advisor here, but it keeps hanging on the "Checking local network of this computer." part at 54%.

I'm not sure where to go from here. :(
