Preferred Solution: windows 10 extremely slow.

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 have a Dell Dimension 300 desktop, Windows XP Home, 5.1.2600 svc pk 3, Intel 279 Mhz, 512 MB memory, using IE6 sp3. It has been starting and shutting down extremely slow. When I go on the internet, it's been slow. Last night I installed IE8, and the problem got worse. It was even slower. So I did a System Restore just now, and it seems just as slow as after installing IE8, but now I'm back to IE6. (frustrating)

My first thought is, should I first try removing programs I haven't been using that may be slowing the computer down? Or should I post a Hi-Jack This log in the appropriate forum?

I appreciate your help. Thanks, Sue

Hi,

I have windows xp. I restarted my computer and when it came back on it took nearly an hour to finish loading up, when usually it takes about five minutes. I tried to run my antivirus and spyware and it took each program an extremely long time to load, and then the antivirus would not scan. I booted into safe mode with networking and ran my spyware and it said that my system was clean. Then I ran the trendmicro housecall virus scanner (because my antivirus software would not work in the safe mode) and it also said my computer was clean. I rebooted into regular mode and the computer is still slow, slow, slow. I ran checkdisk and it did not come up with anything. Also, I just ran disk defragment yesterday. I am not sure at this point what else to do, so any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Hey all, Ive got a bit of a problem this side and I need some help or advice...

This is the low-down on my pc :

8 GB DDR3 1333 RAM
Windows 7 ultimate X64 on 250 GB WD SATA2 64MB cache Drive
AMD phenom II 965 Quad Core at 3.4GHZ(Standard)

This all started after I received my new CPU and MOBO, I re-installed Windows 7 because of the new Motherboard and Its been slow ever since.

Basically when Im running more than one app my pc is so slow I cant even type properly.
When I try to get into the Windows event log my snap-in Manager fails to initialize 99% of the time and it takes extremely long to open. If I click on anything that is loaded into RAM already it responds really fast but opening anything new takes forever. My CPU usage and RAM usage is normal tho...no odd happening there...

Is it a failing Hard-drive or am I missing something?

Thanks for help in advance

Task Manager > Processes will show zero CPU activity and it still chokes. I've also restored to an earlier time with no joy.

Hello all,

Since yesterday, when i start my system it was extremely slow, it would take several minutes to respond to any action such as open the start menu or "My Documents" folder. At some point it would hang, stopping completely.

Still i'm able to start the computer in safe mode and it runs fairly faster but gets slower with time and i can not shut it down "properly".

I tried to see if there was something wrong, i did the following:

* I went through the starting programs on msconfig and check them all (by their names) for known virus/trojans/..;
* I ran Spybot Search and Destroy and fixed all the problems found (not any major problem, only cookies);
* I ran TrojanRemover and fixed a couple of problems it found as well (key to missing file, nothing serious oncemore);
* I unchecked all the programs starting on msconfig thinking it could be one of them the responsible for the slowness and would, by trial and error, find out which one but the computer was still close to not responding;
* I manage to pull the task manager up (in normal mode, after waiting more than 10min for it) but there wasn't any process occupying a lot of CPU or memory.
* I ran out of ideas, tried to run an online scan (bitdefender) but wouldn't pass the loading.

I would sincerely appreciate if someone could help me with this problem and I thank you in advance for taking the time to look over it.

Running the computer in safe mode with network support is a dangerous practice as most of your security applications will not be loaded in safe mode. Therefore, I would suggest that you do not surf the net until you are able to boot into normal mode.

Hello all!

I'm sorry I have to bother you guys about this, but I really do not know what to do on my own. My computer was recently hit by some popups from Internet Explorer, and eversince then it has been EXTREMELY slow. The internet is not exactly slow, but everything else about the computer is. Starting up the computer takes forever, loading up programs, you name it. The computer itself is not even that slow, and never performed this bad, so I am sure this problem is virus/malware related. I also have been forced to use Mozilla eversince the popup barrage from IE, which I have never exactly liked. Anyways, here is the HiJackThisLog below. Thanks again in advance!

Hi
I was wondering if I could get some advice. My desk top used to be what I considered very fast and now same computer alot slower.

If it is comming out of an idle mode it will take at least 3 minutes to load a web page. The hard drive is working very hard, it is always running and the light blinking sometimes when not even being used.

After being used for 5 min. or so the web pages do load faster but not as fast as they should.
Sometimes I get a I.E. not responding message. It's almost like the hard drive is checking something or doing some other work at the same time.

I have to the best of my ability cleared out old files and cleaned up what I can. The hard drive is maybe 25% full.

Starting a couple weeks ago, my computer started bogging down most of the time. When this happens, the CPU usage is almost always at 100% according to the CPU monitor in the Task Manager. Sometimes it gets to the point where I can't even type a web address because I can only type one character every 3 or 4 seconds.

I have tried scanning for malware with Spybot. It found a few things but nothing that wasn't coded "green". I changed my antivirus software from MSE to Avast. No real difference. I even tried installing Linux (using the Windows install program), hoping that would at least give me faster Internet access. But that got bogged down pretty much the same as Windows does, so I'm assuming it's a hardware issue of some kind.

I have Windows 7 with SP1, 500GB hard drive, 2GB RAM. It's a home built computer so there's no brand or model number. I have an ECS 945P-A motherboard with a Celeron 3.3GHz CPU.

I recently found myself in a financial rut and decided it would be a smart idea to pawn my laptop for some quick cash until I received my paycheck the following week. Well, I went through with the pawn, then the following week I went back to the pawn shop to pick up my laptop. Everything seemed to be fine, no scratches or noticeable damage was done during its little vacation.

I returned home and plugged up the laptop, I turned it on and came back awhile later and entered my log-in information, then left awhile longer. When I came back and tried to check my e-mail, I noticed an extreme slowness on my laptop. I tried to restart the computer through Windows, but after 10 minutes, the computer was still on the "Logging off..." screen, so I held the button down and shut down the computer, when I rebooted the computer, it got stuck on the log-in screen, I could not enter a password.

I then did another manual shut down and went straight for a system restore, but for some odd reason, my restore points had all been deleted before that day, there were only 3 available, and they were listed as system updates, so I went ahead with the earliest one.

After the restore, my computer was still lagging horribly. I installed AVG 2015 freeware and ran the usual antivirus procedure along with a PC tune up. So, now, after I log in, my laptop appears to be processing at pre-pawn shop speeds. Yet, I'm left with the problem of my log in screen. I turned it on tonight and it was st... Read more

I'll bet the folks and the pawn shop had a good time playing with your laptop. Wouldn't be surprised if they managed to get some malware installed or messed up some system files.

I am not sure if this is the area to post this problem or not but I am sure you will help me or tell me where to post the problem.

PROBLEM: I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7. I could not get my Dell 968 AIO to work at all since Dell apparently is not supporting the driver(s) for this printer and approximately 90% of their other printer drivers to be compatible with Win 10. I reverted back to Windows 7 using Microsoft's program to do so. Now among other problems which the main problem was not connecting to the internet which I did get to work, the sign it to Windows 7 is now taking about 6 or 7 minutes to login. Previously it was taking less the 1 minute.

Any help to resolve this slow login would be greatly appreciated. Bye the way, I have ran all of the Microsoft Trouble Shooter programs that Microsoft recommends.

A:Extremely slow Windows startup

You say you went back to Windows because you had problems with Windows 10.

You say you used Microsoft's' program to install Windows 7. Do you mean you used the Dell Recovery Partition, or did you use OEM Recovery software provided by System Builder (Dell)? You need to be more specific, rather than just saying Microsoft's' program.

What is the Manufacturer/ Model number of your Computer?

Your asking how to speed up Windows startup.

What Antivirus and Firewall program/s do you have installed?

To begin, perform a "Clean Boot" to see if the computer will load Windows faster.

Hi, i had a problem with my compute in this thread, and someone told me to do a clean install of Windows.

I put in the CD, wiped my old partition, and at first chose to do a quick reformat...but it was taking a horrendous amount of time to copy the files, so i turned the computer off. Next, i wiped that partition, and created a 30gb partition and did a full reformat to see if that was the problem, but it wasn't. So far, ive been installing for 2.5-3 hours and its at about 40%. The Dvd-drive led indicator basically comes on and flashes, and i can see the files changing on the screen, but then the led will go off after a few files and stay off for about half an hour or longer before it flashes again. I have absolutely no idea what the problem is, here's my compute specs, everything is new:

Core 2 Duo E6600

600w GameXStream PSU

Nvidia 8800GTS 640mb

Western Digital 250gb 7200rpm hd

2 x 1gb G.Skill RAM

A:EXTREMELY slow windows installation

Hi Krb686

Maybe it is your install CD that's scratched ? From within Windows try to copy the content of the CD to a folder on another computer. Shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.

Enter the bios (press del during startup) and check that all your drives appear correctly there. Try hooking your drives (DVD and system hard drive) to other controllers on the motherboard and try using another cable.

If you have IDE drives check that the jumper on the drive is correctly set : slave if it's in the middle of an IDE cable, master if it's at the end, no slave drive alone in the middle of a cable (there should always be a master attached at the end).

Check that all your drives are set to use UDMA transfer mode if available (and not just PIO) in the BIOS. Your CD-DVD lock software may have caused some read/write errors and the BIOS may have reverted to older/slower PIO mode.

I have a Gateway desk top running Windows XP Home 2002 and it is running extremely slow and trying to browse the internet on either Firefox or Internet Explorer is getting to be just about a joke. Can't play a video like Youtube and etc. period without it stopping and starting and taking forever to load. Some web pages are very slow opening also.
It started out being just a internet video issue, but now even off line some files are taking forever to open.
I ran a spyware scan in safe mode using Super Anti Spyware and found no issues. Also did a virus scan in safe made with the same results. Defragged the hard drive which wasn't too terribly bad and just for the heck of it ran scan disc and the report showed nothing out of the norm.

I've got an HP G61-429wm Laptop here. It's running really slowly, and won't boot into Windows, or even a Windows disc.

When I try to boot to a Windows disc (I've tried Vista 32 and 64, as well as Windows 7), it will get to the load screen, go black for a few minutes, then show the default background, with a cursor, and I can move the cursor around, but there is nothing to click, and no combination of buttons does anything either (Ctrl-Alt-Delete, Windows+R, Esc, Enter, etc) Right click also does nothing.

Sometimes it took me 10 clicks to get something open.

I did a Windows 7 reimage on my ThinkPad recently. At first, everything was running very quick. Now, about 1 month later, it is ridiculously slow. I don't see many tasks running in the Task Manager, but the HDD is constantly running, running, running. That's what I'm most concerned about. The drive is constantly running but it doesn't seem to be doing anything. There is no virus on the machine. A month ago it was fine; now it's just slowed to a crawl.

Here is a screen shot (attached). Not sure if it helps or not. Does anyone here have an idea about how I can optimize the performance?

I am not sure if this is the area to post this problem or not but I am sure you will help me or tell me where to post the problem.

PROBLEM: I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7. I could not get my Dell 968 AIO to work at all since Dell apparently is not supporting the driver(s) for this printer and approximately 90% of their other printer drivers to be compatible with Win 10. I reverted back to Windows 7 using Microsoft's program to do so. Now among other problems which the main problem was not connecting to the internet which I did get to work, the sign it to Windows 7 is now taking about 6 or 7 minutes to login. Previously it was taking less the 1 minute.

Any help to resolve this slow login would be greatly appreciated. Bye the way, I have ran all of the Microsoft Trouble Shooter programs that Microsoft recommends.

A:Extremely slow Windows startup

You say you went back to Windows because you had problems with Windows 10.

You say you used Microsoft's' program to install Windows 7. Do you mean you used the Dell Recovery Partition, or did you use OEM Recovery software provided by System Builder (Dell)? You need to be more specific, rather than just saying Microsoft's' program.

What is the Manufacturer/ Model number of your Computer?

Your asking how to speed up Windows startup.

What Antivirus and Firewall program/s do you have installed?

To begin, perform a "Clean Boot" to see if the computer will load Windows faster.

System: Windows 7 64 bit. Disk drives: 120gb ssd; 2tb and two 320gb internal drives; 2tb HP external USB 2 disk. 16gb memory.
I am attempting to use Windows backup to back up my internal drives to the external drive. There is plenty of space on all of the drives. The 320 gb disks are virtually empty. The 2tb internal has about 900gb of data on it. The ssd has 75gb of data on it.
Right now it has taken about 9 hours to backup 36%.
Is there any type of fix for this?

A:Windows 7 backup extremely slow

Well it might just be the fact that your external drive is a 5400 rpm drive and probably isn't using the latest usb technology when communicating with your computer. Almost a TB of data is quite large and will deff take some time to complete, however nine hours and not even half way is pretty slow. What external drive are you using? Does you computer support or have usb 3.0, or 2.0 usb ports? Do you have a firewire port?

A:Windows boots extremely slow.

Go to Start type in CMD. Right click on cmd "Run as Administrator"

at the command prompt type in

CHKDSK /F hit enter select "Y" for Yes reboot. This will schedule a disk scan at your next reboot.

Also try these

Click on Start then Run , type cmd and press Enter . Next type fsutil dirty query x: where x: is your boot drive. This queries the drive, and more than likely it will tell you that it is dirty.
Next, type chkntfs /x c: . The X tells Windows to NOT check that particular drive on the next reboot. Now manually reboot your computer, it should not do a chkdsk and should take you directly to normal Windows login.
Once Windows has fully loaded, bring up another Command Prompt and enter chkdsk c: /r . Reply Y when asked if you want this to happen on the next boot. This should take you through 5 stages of the chkdsk scan and will unset that dirty bit. This can take an hour or more depending on the size of your hard drive, be patient and let it complete.
Once booted back to Windows, open another Command Prompt and query the dirty bit again by entering fsutil dirty query c: and Windows will confirm that the dirty bit is not set on that drive.

I can get to Control Panel/Remove Programs, but cannot remove any programs. I tried Safe Mode, but cannot remove programs from there either. I tried System Restore, no luck there.

Be very careful with disabling services...that can have some very bad negative effects. Hopefully, you just meant you shut down some of the start up applications instead. I'm also thinking that it isn't related to the BIOS, or memory checking, as it seems to be getting past that part. Is your HDD light active at all during those 9 minutes?

Lots of these files are AVI's and MP3's. Some AVIs are pretty big, but a full backup like this took 3-4 hours on XP. File copy is also very slow on Windows 7.

Hi and welcome to sevenforums

I dont have a fix for the built in utility but can offer an alternative. A third party app called acronis. It is more flexible (usefull for just backing up a single folder) and it is fast. My media backup is ~100 Gigs and it takes about 3 hours which I schedule overnight. My rig is only a dual core and the backup runs on a wired connection to a media server.

Something is wrong with the slow copy, slow backup. My gut feeling is the RAID. Either a setting is wrong or the driver needs to be re-installed. If you are not using homegroup you can also disable IPv6,

Can you tell us more about your network cinfig?

Can you type cmd in search>type ipconfig /all and upload screenshots for us to examine
Thanks in advance

Hello everyone,

I am having a problem with windows xp running extremely slow. I recently had to reformat my hard drive and reinstal windows xp. Since then, it runs a little slow when I try to access some programs; however, when I try to do things like installing software, it runs extremely slow. It takes 1 - 2 hours to install software. An example is when I try to open something using PowerISO, it takes 1 - 2 hours to extract it to temporary files and then maybe 1/2 an hour to install the program itself. Here are some specs

Windows xp profesional
Pentium dual core 2.13 ghz
2 gb ram
250 hard drive

The only problem that seems to be showing up under device manager is HS 3d sensor 1394 Agere has a warning beside it. I am thinking maybe that I am missing a/some driver(s). Any help would be appreciated. If you need to know more about my system, please just ask.

A:windows xp running extremely slow

Hello, I think your Hard Drive may be slowly failing or has corrupt sectors. Try running a Disk Check

Click Start, click Run and type in CMD.
Once CMD opens type: chkdsk volume:/r
Press Enter

You will most likely receive the following message:
Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)
Type Y, and then press Enter to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.

Hi there, I have a Dell XPS running Windows 7 - it's a few years old but up until yesterday it had been running fine. However, when I logged on today, everything was suddenly lagging - it took 5 or 10 minutes to load all the startup programs, and each action I took afterward had a significant delay - just opening a folder in Windows Explorer could take 30 seconds or so.
 
Everything's working fine in safe mode. However, when I tried to do a clean boot outside of safe mode (all startup programs and non-Microsoft services disabled), the issue persisted.
 
I didn't change any settings or install anything the previous day, and as far as I can tell there are no other signs of anything malicious on the computer. In Task Manager, nothing seems to be taking up a significant amount of CPU.
 
The only other odd thing I've noticed is that my system clock is 2 hours behind, although it shows the right time zone.
 
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

This could be the CMOS battery failing.  I would suggest checking in the BIOS to make sure the time and date is correct there.  If it isn't replace the CMOS battery, then the date and time in the BIOS.

Yet, when it comes to loading Windows, my desktop is blowing it out of the water.

My laptop takes 2 and a half minutes to get to the desktop (and a a large majority of that time is spent before I even log in!), compared to only about a minute for my desktop. Here is some additional information.

2) I updated all of the drivers on the laptop.
3) When it comes to loading all of the stuff on the desktop, the desktop has more tasks to load on the system tray than the laptop does, but at least the laptop is fine loading AFTER logging in.

A:Windows 7 Extremely Slow to Load

You may want to take a look at all your startup items, using the appropriate startup manager. There are many more items launched at startup...than you see reflected in your summary, including Windows files and drivers.Unfortunately, I have not really familiarized with my Win 7 install and can't suggest a startup manager, other than from XP experience.AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx. If you use, please read the instructions beforehand...the typical startup items will be reflected on the Logon tab.Louis

I'm having an issue with my personal computer. I was running Windows 7 on it, but things started acting weird and going really slow, so I decided to switch back to WinXPpro64bit. Install went fine, but I thought it took a little longer than it should have, given the hardware under the hood.

It's an Intel Quad Core Q9400 CPU @ 2.66 GHz with 4GB ram on an Intel DP35DP system board.

When windows boots, it takes about 5 to 10 minutes at the black DOS screen with the scrolling progress bar and the windows logo, then I finally get to the login window, then finally to the desktop, but things are just slow and laggy everywhere.

I ran a memtest last night for eight hours, and completed three passes with zero failures. So I think RAM is OK (and I do not get weird error messages during normal use in Windows that might indicate flaky ram).

I defragged my C: drive without any noticeable improvement.

What else might be causing this weirdness?

I'm running a full CHKDSK, scanning the entire C: drive for bad sectors, but I have a hunch that this won't come up with anything. EDIT: So far, since posting this ~40 minutes ago, CHKDSK has replaced bad clusters in two files... \Windows\twain_32.dll and \Windows\system32\dllcache\pintlgs.imd. To be honest, I've never experienced bad clusters on a hard drive first hand... my drive failures seem to be beautifully catastrophic, not under-the-surface like this one appears.

Does this mean my hard drive has bad clusters? Do... Read more

A:Extremely Slow / Laggy Windows XP Pro 64-bit

Not sure on the bad hard drive thing, There are places that you can check the drive online, cant think of them off the top of my head. Right click my computer and select properties, and check the stats to see if they are the same as what they should be. As It sounds like perhaps the skip mem test in the bios and enabel quickstart may have gotten changed. (if you pulled the plug and have a bad or low battery this can happen). Check through your bios settings ensure that the processor speed is set correctly, Sorry I cant think terms today. But its probably where the problem is, a bios setting somewhere. If not it could be a bad Nic card.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop that runs Windows 7. When I turn it on, it takes an extremely long time to boot up. When it gets to the login menu, it will take a long time to do anything at all. When I do try and do anything like run a program, it gets even slower and will freeze for long periods of time. The computer also doesn't connect to wifi, but it will connect to the internet if a plug a cable in, so I can download stuff, but it would be really slow and hard to use anyway.

I am trying to help out my aunt with her 3 yr old Toshiba laptop that shipped with Vista but was later upgraded to Windows 7 64bit.

There are a couple of problems with it currently, the main one being that it runs extremely slowly, even in SAFE Mode. By slow, I mean that you click on the Start button and wait several minutes before the menu appears. During this time, the hard drive LED seems to be continuously lit.

The other problem is, when the system boots, it starts to run a scheduled CHKDSK but immediately says it's been cancelled.

You should know that when I first got the laptop, in addition to the above two problems, she was also getting a Bad Image error whenever launching IE, complaining about WOW64WIN.DLL. I managed to replace that file with one from my own Windows 7 installation and that seemed to fix that.

I'm looking for recommendations on next steps, please, and thank you. If you need more information, let me know.

Regards,

John

A:Windows 7 extremely slow, and other problems

There are many potential issues that it could be. I'd start by pulling up task manager when the system is running slow (which may be all the time) and take a look at the processes tab and see what seems to be taking up the CPU cycles. If you're not really seeing anything that stands out, then look at the performance tab and see what the physical memory usage history looks like (should be under the cpu utilization graph). To me it sounds like a system with too little RAM or the system has a suspect HD. If booting in SafeMode is the same slow down as normal mode, then you really need to look at task manager to check what was mentioned above and report back.
