Computer runs really slow in normal mode, but runs fine in safe mode

Q: Computer runs really slow in normal mode, but runs fine in safe mode

I recently re-formatted my Sony VAIO since it was starting to run super slow. Now that I re-installed Windows 7 on it through recovery disks, it worked fined for about a day but then the problem came back. The computer is slow at bootup and runs super slow while freezing so many times. I am running it on safe mode right now and its working fine.

I ran hardware diagnostics and everything is fine (Memory, Hard Disk etc.)

I installed Norton Antivirus and Windows Live Messenger after the re-install.

Please help me.

Preferred Solution: Computer runs really slow in normal mode, but runs fine in safe mode

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.)

Hi
 
I am looking for help 
 
My windows 7 start in normal mode is very slow.  System is in a loop or is hanging waiting for the hard disk to be free.  The hard disk indicator light is on  all the time ... 
When I start the system in safe mode with networking, the system is fine and nothing is holding the hard disk anymore.

Hello,
 
all of a sudden Windows 7 became extremely slow in normal mode. This doesn't happen in safe mode.
 
The laptop now also makes 3 beeps on startup, but the beeps disappear when Windows login page comes up. The only thing I did is updating Java and the beeps started.
 
I'm sending in attachment DDS, OTL and ComboFix logs.

Honestly, I really don't know where to begin. Every time I try to run my computer in normal mode it restarts and gives me options to run in different safe modes or try normal mode again. My computer runs perfectly fine in safe mode. I haven't added any new programs. It's been this way for some time. I'm currently running sfc /scannow to see if this helps, which I seen it helped on a similar forum on bleepingcomputer. If anyone has anything else to contribute, please feel free.

Hi,
 
I could use some help. My Toshiba Satellite laptop is having issues after the normal startup with slowing down dramatically after it goes to the desktop. It will basically freeze with commands taking between 5-50 seconds to be recognized and sometimes it just freezes. When I boot into Safe Mode, I am running everything smoothly. I could really use some help figuring out whats going on.

A:Everything runs very slow in normal, but fine in Safe Mode.

Open msconfig and on the General tab choose "selective startup" (uncheck all three items) and reboot. Does the problem still occur? If not, start adding items back to msconfig one or two at a time, rebooting after each change, until the problem reappears and you'll have identified the offending process. This is clearly a time consuming procedure, but it is the best way to determine if some process loading with the system is the cause of your problem.
 
After you've isolated the cause, do not use msconfig to permanently disable the process. Instead, if it is a service go to START - RUN and type: services.msc (then press enter) and disable the service OR, if it a program, you can download & run a simple app such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml) to enable, disable, or otherwise manage startup programs.

On 9/20 morning my browser was acting strange like when I clicked the arrow to go back I had to click numerous times and sometime it wouldn't go back at all.   I was running Kaspersky anti virus at the time but wonder if something malicous got in.   When I shut down the computer and tried to restart it took almost 90 minutes to start .  Once it starts and I click start menu or a program on the desktop the it hangs and I'm able to do nothing. 
 
 
I'm able to work in safe mode and safe mode with networking as normal.
 
As recommended.
 
I downloaded super anti spyware and it found only cookies I got rid of .
 
I also downloaded Adware cleaner which found a number of issues which I deleted.
 
Did a malware bytes scan and said I was clean. Tried to start in normal mode and the same issues.
 
 
I'd appreaciate any assistance. Thanks!!

I'm not sure what causes my BSOD. The errors range from BAD_POOL_HEADER to ntfs.sys to drivers-something.

I am currently running Safe Mode with Networking and things seem stable.

I ran Anti-malware (nothing found), VIPRErescuescanner (nothing), fakereanfix (didn't help), ComboFix (probably made things worse).

Are my drivers up to date? No, probably not, but at this point, I'm scared to change anything else.
Is my windows 7 up to date? No updates installed since Jan 2012, I'm too scared to update anything lest I cause more BSODs.

Hello, the computer I am concerned with is running Windows 7 with IE8, Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I am currently in Safe Mode with Networking without issue.

The owner of the computer says that something happened earlier today while he was online that sounds like some false antivirus popup, but he's unsure. Here are the symptoms in normal mode. Every application, from moving through them to opening and closing them, runs exceptionally slow - one to three minutes to open, at least a minute to open internet pages. I noticed that, when in IE, as the pages are loading the IE page disappears and reappears. I am not very familiar with Windows 7 so I don't know if it is related. The computer seems to be getting slower as the day goes on. CPU usage is very high.

So far, I have disabled many startup items that were unnecessary. I ran CCleaner and cleaned up. MBAM was run in both normal and safe mode, full scans, and found nothing. This is also posted in Viruses and Malware, but I'm unsure where it should live.

If you can help, thanks!! I have to work on the Win7 computer from LogMeIn, and may have to get around in safe mode there.

So a few nights ago, there was a bad storm. I turned the computer off manually (by holding the power button in) and unplugged it before the storm hit. When I turned it back on, I noticed that it was taking around 20 minutes to start up. When it gets to the point where I can open programs, it takes them forever to respond. At first I thought this was related to the storm or the way I turned the computer off. I took out the CMOS battery and let that sit for a while, thinking that might have been a problem, but it wasn't.

At this point, I'm thinking it's coincidental that this happened right when the storm hit and the problem is actually malware or something.

I have the latest version and updates for AVG, but it didn't find anything on a full computer scan. Does it sound like there's something I should be able to do?

Last Sunday my computer froze so I had to do a hard shutoff...when I turned it back on I got BSOD. I can't remember what exactly the stop error was. Point is whatever was wrong with my puter I couldn't even get as far as the splash screen and safe mode wouldn't load. I went down and bought Windows 7(x64) (I was running Vista x64). Since I wasn't able to get into windows I had to set it up to boot from the disk first upon startup. Having done that it took everything I had off and just replaced it with Win7. I thought everything was going to be okay. I downloaded the critical Microsoft updates and I think my drivers are up to date. I installed and activated my anti-virus. My system is running SO slow it hangs and before I turned the "auto restart upon error function" off it was constantly telling windows Explorer had some error and my computer puter would restart in one minute. I hardly have anything on here so I am not sure what is causing the problem. Pretty much works just fine in Safe Mode. I can browse the net, play some online based games and video is fine (even if I can't hear sound in safemode).

I have a computer that would not see the hard drive a few days ago. Got a new hard drive and did a clean install of windows and restored the rest of the files with Carbonite. A few days later the computer would not boot into windows again. So this time i reformatted the new drive and stuck it into an identical PC I had.

Now its been 3 days and the computer started to run EXTREMELY slow after booting up. In safe mode its perfectly fine. I have ran multiple virus scans from malware bytes, avast and superantispyware, nothing found.

After some trial and error with turning services off I found that if i disable the local area connection in safe mode then boot into windows normally it runs fine(without the internet connection of course). I have brought the PC to a different location and even put the hard drive in the original computer and it is still having the same issue.

Any ideas on what i can try?

I have a HP Pavilion A6352c desktop pc. I have recently installed a clean copy on win 7. I have listed the issue I am having below. I hope you can assist me in getting this system to a stable state.

1. System locks up running in Normal Mode - I will take about 3 minutes before the entire system locks up, I have to do a hard shutdown when this happens. I can start the system in Normal mode, but only if I use the diagnostic startup option in MSConfig. I can enable some services, but I am in the process of trying to figure out which one is making it lockup.

2. The system will run fine under safe mode with networking and such. I have the normal startup option in msconfig enabled in safe mode and no issue except it's in Safe Mode!

I have attached the requested documents/files in the attached zip file. I was unable to get the Perfmon report.

I look forward to your response.

A:Systems runs in safe mode - Normal mode locks up

The dumps are all over the map, but they all are having issues in amdk8.sys (the OS's CPU driver). What's really interesting is one of these dumps looks almost exactly the same as the issue that is documented in KB 975530, but that's for Intel CPUs running hyper-v. However, you *are* running into a watchdog timeout on the CPU (it's causing other drivers to crash and confuse analyze, but it's not that code's fault that the CPU stopped processing it's requests). This means you might have a bum core on that CPU when entering/exiting C-states. Try running this:
reg add HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Processor /v Capabilities /t REG_DWORD /d 0x0007e066

Reboot, and see if it still causes problems in regular boot mode. Either way, you probably need to have that CPU looked at as a potential bad part.

Hello guys,
you are my last hope! I do not know what I am supposed to do anymore, I spent the last 8hours looking on the net what I could do. I am a computer noob and have little experience with computers at all.

Here's my problem. My laptop doesn't start anymore. The first thing I noticed on my boot screen were four parallel vertical lines of dots, then four parallel lines of vertical dashes then dots again and so on. This is in the background from the time when I start my samsung R70, even on the boot screen, as well as on the windows vista loading screen (these little boxes floating from right to left...). These really weird dots are however NOT present in the DOs menu and neither is it after you pressed F8 to boot in safe mode. They are also NOT present in safe mode that means they disappear after the boot screen and are not evident on the black background of the safe mode desktop.
However at the time when the windows vista sign is supposed to flash up and you'd be prompted to enter your password (this is when I start it normally), nothing happens and a greyish-white screen comes up, after which the system just restarts and the whole process happens again (including the dots mentioned earlier). I can run the laptop in safe mode, in fact I am running it in safe mode with network drivers right now to type this, but I cannot, under any circumstances, run it in normal mode. When I start it in safe mode I get the following notice:

Hi -

The BSOD bugcheck (STOP error) = 0x50 = invalid memory referenced

As you said - no service packs installed, which is probably one of the problems here. You need to see if you can re-install Windows and then see if it is stable or not.

I do recommend another re-install of Vista using the manufacturer's (OEM) recovery DVD. This must be the first item on the "to do" list. Contact your father or the system manufacturer and obtain the Vista recovery DVDs. Do you have a recovery partition? Many do. Usually, the key to invoke the recovery partition if F10 - during boot-up.

Two other options until your Vista DVDs arrive from your father -
1. Download and burn Server 2008 - it has the same build as Vista, with a few features that have been disabled. It is a trial offer that can be renewed up to 240 days - http:/... Read more

One day I came back to my computer in power save mode and it would not wake up. So I restarted the system and from there on it would hang midway through loading the items on my desktop and freeze there. A couple times I was able to boot enough to back up data by use of the Vista disk on startup for start up repair or whatever it was called. Safe mode worked just fine this whole time. After giving up on a fix I did a complete clean install with the disks shipped with the system from Dell.

However, it went immediately to having an issue where windows boots up completely, but it hangs after a short period of time has elapsed or I try to do anything past opening a window or two at best. I've had windows search errors and windows explorer errors, etc. I tried the SFC /scannow only for it to tell me "windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation" at about 50%.

I don't use P2P file sharing, look at porn, download cracked software or anything like that. I mainly use this computer to look at game film etc.

How about trying a "Clean Boot" test >>

CLEAN BOOT TROUBLESHOOTING technique

First, restart in Safe Mode if necessary -- (tap the f8 key promptly on startup and choose the Safe Mode option from the boot menu) or Normal mode

Then:

Run msconfig and select the "Services" tab. Check "Hide Microsoft Services" and then disable the rest. Also uncheck "load startup items" on the general page.
Now restart and test the issue at hand

If no problems, run msconfig and recheck half the disabled items on the Services tab. Test again. If the problem recurs, UNcheck half the items you just checked to narrow down the culprit.

If the problem didn't occur, check the other half, so all the Services are enabled -- proceed to do this on the startup tab as well.

Get the idea? You want to isolate the problem to a specific startup if possible.

Hi,

About two months ago my HP Pavilion 6654y Win7, 8GB, etc.,
started running extremely slowly in Normal Mode. It takes several minutes to respond to mouse clicks, etc.
Basically, it just hangs. But it runs "ok" for a minute or two while still rebooting.

In Safe mode it runs just fine.
I've tried everything I can think of to narrow down the problem, to no avail,
including numerous scans such as AVG, Malwarebytes, Trend Micro Housecall.
Installed UnHackMe to check for rootkits. Even got Reimage and ran it several times.

I've used CCleaner to clean things up, and also to clear out Startup programs
and disable most scheduled tasks, as follows,
(though it is confusing to me since I still see some of the process when started up in Normal Mode):

Hello everyone.  I am trying to fix my mom's computer but have so far been unable.  The laptop is running but it is incredibly slow.  When I first got on it a bunch of pop ops took over the screen.  The computer would randomly go to other sites on it's own.  It would go to a search sight called "clarosearch".  Worst of all, it's incredibly slow.  For example, from the desktop, it take about 45 seconds for the IE window to open when I click on the icon.  It takes about that long to navigate to a page and so fourth. I downloaded and ran a registry cleaner, spybot search and destroy, malwarebytes, and ad-aware.  These found a bunch of problems and cleaned some up, I guess.  The pop ups are gond and so is the strange search site, but the computer is still running just as slow.  It's a paperweight.  Getting another computer isn't really an option right now as my mom is unemployed and we're actually trying to get her resume online but we can't even do that right now with the way the laptop is acting.  I downloaded hijackthis and ran a scan.  Here is the log.    Oh, and as the subject says, the computer runs fast and fine in safe mode.  Please let me know if there is any other info that is needed as I'm not sure what to provide.  Thank you in advance for any help or suggestions you can provide.  Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.4Scan saved at 6:26:57 PM, on 4/26/2014Pl...

Hey guys I've checked through some of the tuts and what-not on this forum and still can't find a way to get me out of trouble..
i turned my computer on yesterday (23rd September) and there was an automatic update. Ever since the update my computer has been extremely slow (will take several minutes to open firefox -or anything for that matter). I booted safe mode and it's running fine. I opened up msconfig and did a clean boot but the problem was still there.
It's a fairly new build and I was stupid and forgot to get a virus protection i can't install it in safe mode either..

It happens whenever the computer has to do a more complicated task, such as opening many windows, formatting something in Word, etc. Sometimes there is no BSOD--it will simply restart and I'll be left with a bootable drive not found error. The computer does not crash while in safe mode.

I was browsing the internet the other day when I clicked on a link and my computer shut down. I immediately knew it was a bad link. My computer rebooted and it wouldn't let me on IE after that at all. I then did a restore to the previous day. I was about to get online so I went and downloaded Kaspersky IS and scanned my computer. My laptop messed up and rebooted itself. Then got Anti-Malware Bytes in Safe mode and ran a scan, still had issues Kaspersky not running right and my computer freezing after just a couple of minutes. Went back and did a restore again to the same spot and this time said forget Kaspersky and jsut did AMWB. It showed my computer is clean, yet about 2 minutes after booting, my computer reboots and the safe mode option pops up. I can run ok in safe mode but cannot get it to work in normal mode. I did trend micros housecall and another online scanner and all say my computer is clean. Yet, when I start IE, I am redirected on every link I click to scour..... or another site with links on it. Any help is greatly appreciated, as well as a recommendation for a better Anti-virus. I jsut had McAfree that came with this laptop. Thanks!

( I am trying to solve this now for days)

The computer runs fine in safe mode. Booting in win7 after 1 minute or so BSOD with 0x000000F4.
In between I can start a program but will be interrupted of cause by BSOD.Not enough time to adjust any settings or do any analyzing

I did so far:
- run chkdsk /R = no problem detected, but cannot find report
- used two different driver update programs
- uninstalled numerous programs
- removed pretty much all USB devices
- uninstalled everything from Logitech
- uninstalled all virtual drives

another abnormality is that I can not restore or create restore point.
also the BSOD data are not stored (I enabled the path in 'system advanced' settings)

So I need somebody please who can help me solving this problem systematically.

I followed the instruction and used SF tool but I have problems uploading the ZIP file due to size:

Hi, I'm having some problems fixing my bleeping computer (Windows 10 desktop computer, to be specific) and could use some assistance.
 
On Friday 15 December 2017, my computer ran fine when I woke up and used it for a few minutes in the morning. Before that date, I had very few problems with my computer running; the biggest issue was some freezing occurring while playing games demanding on processing power such as Civilization 5. However, I don't believe that is related to my current issue, as I last played it on Sunday 26 November 2017, and I had no issues with it on that day.
 
When I returned home later that day (15 December), I found my computer stuck on a blue screen. I'm not sure quite what happened, as my computer was not used during the day at all. I restarted several times, but I was not able to even make it to the user login screen before getting a blue screen. I've received error code 0xc0000142 for every blue screen.
 
Startup repair did nothing to resolve the situation. I am still able to run my computer in safe mode with networking and that's how I'm writing this post. For the past two weeks, I've been using safe mode to use my computer. I've looked online for solutions, but haven't gotten much. I've had some problems in safe mode with random freezes, but at least the computer runs most of the time, although with limited functionality.

A:BSOD - Computer runs in safe mode, not regular mode

If you work OK in Safe Mode - but not in normal mode, it's most likely a software problem.
Hardware problems are possible, but nowhere near as likely as a software problem.
 
First thing I'd suggest is trying a clean boot.  It's similar to Safe Mode - but works in normal mode by disabling stuff.
It's also similar to disabling the services - but you'll disable more when doing a clean boot.
If a clean boot fixes the problem - then the problem was caused by one (or more) of the things you disabled for the clean boot.
Then it's just a matter of re-enabling things one at a time until you find the problem.
Perform a Clean Boot:  http://www.thewindowsclub.com/what-is-clean-boot-state-in-windows
If that stops the problem, then re-enable things a few at a time until you figure out what's causing it.
Then uninstall the problem program (from Start...Settings...Apps...Apps & Features - if you don't find it there, check the right sidebar for Programs and Features and see if you can remove it from there).
 
Backup your stuff now.  There's no telling exactly what the problem is - so a backup is the best way to be prepared in case the system dies on you suddenly.
 
If this doesn't work, then post back and we'll ask for some reports to try and figure out what's going on.
Good luck!

A few days ago, my wife's computer started running slower and slower, until finally she woke up and saw a black screen that said ""can't come out of hibernation mode - fatal error".  
 
I've tried running the various performance tools, but the computer sputters, chokes and dies before the performance tools screen can even open. 
 
I've cleared temp files, verified there's enough space on the HD, run adaware by Lavasoft, checked to make sure the ram chips are in good shape and plugged in, I've even visually verified that the CPU didn't melt. 
 
I'm not 100% sure, but it seems like there is a connection between the computer slowing down and when it tries to connect to the WLAN. but that may just be coincidence. 
 
And when i run it in safe mode, none of the above happens. 
 
Help?
 
Thanks!

A:Win7.Dell XPS8300Desk-Runs VERY slowly in Normal Mode, but perfectly in safe

Since this doesn't occur in Safe Mode there is a good chance that this is caused by either a third-party service or startup item.  In order to determine if this is the case, I would suggest performing a Clean Boot. 
 
After you have finished Part C you will reboot your computer.  If the problem doesn't occur you most likely have either a service or startup item causing this.  The process of elimination should find the problem service or startup item.
 

 
***This is a diagnotic tool for Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.  This will not repair your computer, but it may point to where the problem lies so that a repair can be made.***
 
Warning:  Disabling items in Services or Startup may leave your anitivius disabled until the process is ended.  For this reason I would suggest that you perform this process off line.
 
Part A
 
(1)  Click on the Start orb, then type msconfig.exe in the Search programs and files box.  
 
(2)  When msconfig is seen in the pane above the search box and under Programs, right click on it, then click on Run as administrator.

Lately my computer has been acting differently, it turned off on me the first time when I was on the internet and then it became more frequent. A few days ago it wouldn't start so I ran a system restore and it restored to a previous checkpoint and worked good for the rest of the day. Then it started having issues again. Now it keeps restarting and restarting and restarting all on it's own. If I get lucky it will give me the opportunity to go into safe mode and it works fine there. After alot of frustration (and internet searching) I decided to just redo the whole hard drive, I inserted my "system recovery" discs that restore it to how it was when I first bought it and it worked fine (for 30 min) until I tried to install my wireless card then it turned off. In safe mode I uninstalled it and started up normal again, it waited a few minutes and jumped back into the start, restart, restart cycle (it would go a few minutes less each time before restarting until now it won't even get past the windows screen).

I recently installed more RAM (2G) and after reading that that could be an issue tried each one seperatly and reinstalled my old ram (512MB) and that doesn't do anything. BIOS says that my computer is only at about 53 degrees so it's not the fan. I thought I had a something that had to be wrong with software or files so I erased everything and started from scratch, but, as stated, that didn't help (for long).

Hello,
This is my first time posting so I hope I posted in the correct place. I am pretty computer illiterate, but am having the following issues:

1. The computer will only run in safe mode. Even in safe mode, if left unattended for a while a blue screen appears but it appears to be a screen saver of sorts b/c if I hit the space bar my desktop appears.

2. I am unable to install antivirus software from a CD in safe mode. I receive the error stating that the administrator has set a policy preventing the install. I can install other programs that are not security related. This is a personal computer and I'm logged in as the admin so I'm sure this is related to the virus.

3. I've run Trend Micros HouseCall. Some items it found were troj_zlob.iaw, troj_zlob.don, vbs_fakealer.hj, cryp_fakeav-2, bkdr_frauder.ba, joke_bluescreen.

Managed to get rid of this using Malwarebytes and also run registry cleaning tool (Eusing) and between the two of them this seemed to do the trick

Then my pc started crashing when I log on as normal ? it was just outlook and ie8 that would freeze (I have office 2003 and Ie8 installed with xp sp3)

i uninstalled ie8 and went back to ie7 but when I start it up it would just flash up then quit ? if I do this a couple of time it then seems to open

however outlook keeps freezing

so

as an experiment, I created a new user account to try this out and when ever I try and run any office programs (outlook, word, excel etc) the windows installer starts (as if it was a new user install) I would expect this first time but it starts every time I use one of the ms office applications

I went back to my original user log in and all the ms office app (other than outlook and internet explore work and run fine)

So logged on in safe mode (f8 with networking) and everything runs just fine if I log on as my existing user but if I log on in safe mode as my new user account , all the ms office application still try to start windows installer every time ? all then finally load the application except outlook with says install failed

A:computer only runs in safe mode

Hi,

While in Safe Mode save this program to the desktop: http://live.sysinternals.com/autoruns.exe

Right-click on it -> Select run-as-admin.

Go to Options and make sure Hide Microsoft and Windows Entries is ticked.

Go to the Driver Tab and untick the boxes beside everything that doesn't look to be "Microsoft" that is in that list.

Then re-boot into normal mode.

Some things will not work as they should, but if it does get into normal mode without freezing then we have made some progress.

The next step is to use the same program to re-enable some of the entries (this can be done in normal mode) and then re-boot and see if you get the freezes.

Repeat this procedure until you have isolated the cause.

Try performing a windows repair and see if this will fix the issue. You will need your windows xp cd and boot the computer to the CD. Then on the main menu select enter like you are going to install windows for the first time.

Then press F8 to agree to the license agreement and for about 5seconds the windows cd will search for your current operating system. When windows finds the operating system, select "R" for windows repair. Hope this will help solve your problem.

Hi, I have random resets but never happen when I'm in safe mode.

Additionally, I can't get the computer to generate the DMP file.

Unfortunately there is no crash dump file in the supplied zip. Still, you may try the following:

Free up the startup.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept the restart.
Uninstall Trend Micro. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Uninstall these factory bloatwares, too.

I am running a gateway 64 bit with window seven on it. Puter is around 7 years old now. For about 4 years now my puter has been crashing, with blue screen, three beeps at start up, won't boot at all, crashes with a blank screen, etc. Starting yesterday puter will run in safe mode w/networking without crashing,...so far. I've run Norton, win cleaner, malware bytes and no change.  Help?

Hi, all -

First, thanks for all you do to voluntarily help noobs like me keep our stuff working.

2 months ago, I had the HDD replaced on my laptop. Yesterday, it started "freezing" about 5 minutes after booting up. It isn't a true freeze as the mouse still works, but all programs stop responding and I have to force a shut down. No error messages (except that it will tell me that programs are not responding).

When I open in safe mode, everything works beautifully for as long as I want it to, but as soon as I boot normally, it does the same thing.

I've defragged, run memory tests, and everything comes up as operating as it should.

Other suggestions?

Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit
Intel Core Duo T6600 @2.20GHz

Thank you!

Sir I am using windows xp service pack3 for last 4 years, It was working fine. till past few days.. when sudden power failure caused it giving following error "windows cannot find local profile..." I created new profile and copied the files from old profile to this.
Though system was working fine. one of my software MPLAB IDE was not working  it used to give unspecified error and stop. So I used registry cleaner in safe mode and MPLAB IDE was started working properly. But window become slow at the start . It takes almost 5-10 minutes to get original screen. Also When I start explorer it holds up for a while (20-25 sec ).In safe mode everything works well. What may be the problem?

A:Computer is very slow in normal mode but fast in safe mode

The registry cleaner probably removed things that some startup programs needed, so now they get stuck and slow. Considering the problem and that you had to create a new user profile, I'd probably just reinstall windows fresh. (But maybe some other people have ideas for fixing it instead)

Having some computer issues that seem a little advanced. Did all the usual...scan, looked at hijack log,etc etc. Vertical lines on the screen when loading...screen is fine in safe mode. Tried going to my driver cd....set-up wouldn't recognize my cdrom...kept saying floppy wasn't recognized or something. Tried reformatting and cdrom drive still not recognized. When I boot the pc though...I am able to install stuff from the cdrom. This problem started last night. I'm not sure what to do since I cannot get the recovery cd to work either.

One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan/rootkit.

This type of infection allows hackers to remotely control your computer, log keystrokes, steal critical system information, and download and execute files without your knowledge.

If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Please refer to Microsoft's Online Safety article for tips on creating a strong password.

Do not change passwords or do any transactions from the infected computer until it has been cleaned.

------------------------------------------------------

Please note that these fixes are not instantaneous. Most infections require more than one round to properly eradicate.

Please stay with me until given the 'all clear' even if symptoms seemingly abate.
