Preferred Solution: Sluggish HP nc6400 Laptop

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello all,

I recently picked up a hp-compaq model #nc6400 laptop from a guy. He said it started having a problems and he "formatted" the hard drive using disk sanitizer in BIOS. It had no OS on it when I got it, had NLTDR not found error. I'm attempting to install WinXP on the system. It copies all the files and restarts, and begins installing, only to BSOD during installation with a watchdog.sys error.

From what i've read, this is related to drivers. I've located the relevant drivers for this sytem, but what I don't know how to do is to get them onto the system, seeing as I can't even boot into safe mode. Is it possible to slipstream these into a bootable WinXP install disc?
Thanks to anyone who took the time to help me out!

Have you tried formatting with the Windows CD before you install, ie. deleting the partitions and creating a new one?

Dear Friends, I'm nearly certain the LCD is gone bad... The screen lites and there are a bunch of colored hairlines (about an inch and half wide total) running from top to bottom on the left side of the screen only. The rest of the screen is a lite gray color. What do you feeling is going on and where can I obtain a good healthy screen or possibly a parts machine with a known "good" screen? I have looked a little on eBay, but nothing thrilling. The screens alone are more than  some of the entire computers. Any thoughts, suggestions, options will be very welcomed.... It has been great little computer overall, but i need to be careful and use my $$$ wisely.  God Bless...Sincerely, Raphael

Hello,

Not sure if this belongs here or in the Network & Sharing forum.

I have a nc6400 laptop where the nic card stays lit all the time, even when the computer has been shut off. I've had Sony and Dell notebooks that have never exhibited this behavior before.

Is there a setting I can go to turn it off?

Thanks.

A:HP nc6400 nic stays lit all the time

this means the network card supports WOL. Wake On LAN. you maybe able to turn this feature off if bios, however by just unplugging the cable or turning off the router should work....lol.

I've got an HP nc6400 running Windows XP Pro. It's got the HP Integrated Module with 2.0 Bluetooth installed. I've verified that bluetooth is enabled in the BIOS. Whenever I use the My Bluetooth Places, I get an error message 'No local bluetooth device found'. When I look at nearby devices on my Palm, I see my laptop with a name of XXXXXX. I cannot detect any devices from my laptop. I also do not get a bluetooth icon on the taskbar. I've downloaded and re-installed the drivers that HP posts for the integrated wireless module to no avail. I also show that bluetooth is enabled via the HP Wireless Assistant. I'm at a loss. Anyone dealt with this before?

Dear Friends, Hope all is well... I'm still searching high and low for a LCD screen for my nc6400 at a reasonable price.One seller on eBay did not want to sell to me as I contested the price advertised and the selling price. Which was almost twice as much as the Ad stated. Claiming it was a sale price when in fact I looked at the sales records and they were all sold at the lower price. PLEEZE! help.... Have a blessed day! Thank YOU! Sincerely, Raphael

A:Red Display - HP Compaq nc6400 - Windows 10 and Linux

271058 Your assumption is most likely correct -- as Linux and Windows use totally different video drivers.  So, any video problem that is the same in both is either the video chipset, or the monitor, or both -- but in either case, it's most likely hardware, not software.

I've tried running malwarebytes already and it found 3 items. I've cleared them all, but my system still seems to be really slow and sluggish. Not really sure what to do at this point.

I am using an HP Laptop with following configurations:

HP
Genuine Intel? CPU
[email protected] Ghz
2.49 GB of RAM

Since last few weeks I am facing hang-ups, slow response, etc.

A:My Laptop using to much CPU - becoming sluggish

HJT is a malware-troubleshooting tool. If you don't suspect malware issues, I suggest you edit your original post and remove the HJT log.There are many reasons a system is deemed slow by users, many of those have nothing to do with malware issues.Slow Computer - http://www.theeldergeek.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=22278 Louis

Good Morning, I just bought a hp/Compaq nc6400 running windows 7 professional. doesn't seem like a terrible machine but wondering what people think about the hp/Compaq nc6400 laptops. I bought this since someone stole my MacBook pro and needed a computer. I am more used to apple and actually enjoy using apple products but couldn't find a decentally priced one on craigslist in my area. windows 7 doesn't seem too bad but I left windows when vista arrived and generally avoided any form of windows after that and now I have a windows laptop again...

Hello,

I just bought a refurbished Compaq NC6400 and since it had been on the shelf for over a month, the battery was fully discharged. I put the notebook on charge (almost 5hrs now) and the charging indicator is still in amber (charging). Is this normal? The battery pack is more than warm too.
ps. I've kept the notebook turned off while it's been charging.

I'm working on a friends Dell Inspiron laptop. XP sp3. Everything is slow. (512meg of RAM, Pentium M, 1.73GHZ).

Both IE and FireFox will not display background colors but it connects to the Internet. But is sluggish.

I cleaned up the crap files with CleanUp and am running SuperAntiSpyware. So far it's looking pretty clean. Hasn't completed yet but has only detected 3 tracking cookies so far.

The owner is using a McAfee package. I disabled the software firewall. My router will protect it.

What would cause the background colors to not show up in either browser? The browsers pretty much display text only.

A:Dell Laptop Is Sluggish....

I ran Avast, SuperAntiSpyware, Error checking, defrag, and updates.

The only problem left is that both IE and FireFox will not display background colors. I just downloaded FF 3.5.2. It didn't help. What is going on with the browsers?

I purchased a new laptop just yesterday after beating up my old one for years. It runs pretty smooth when I'm offline but the problem begins when I go online. It takes 1-2 minutes for images to load completely and when I click to enlarge them only a portion of the picture appears. When it comes to videos or audio streams it takes up to 5-10 minutes for the video or audio to load completely. My old laptop runs through my current issues with no problem. The current laptop I own is a HP Pavilion g6, the old, a Compaq Presario C700. Any solutions to my problem will be greatly appreciated. I'm thinking of returning this one.

I purchased my Lenovo ThinkPad SL410 in January 2010 (Centrino/C2D T6570 @ 2.10 GHz, 4 GB DDR3-1066/PC3-8500, 500 GB 5400 RPM 8 MB cache SATA II, Intel 4500MHD graphics, Win 7 Pro 64-bit). Within 6 to 8 months of owning it it's performance was noticeably sluggish, especially during startup and coming out of hibernation (I prefer hibernation). Will I get much of a performance gain if I max out the memory (8 GB DDR3-1333/PC3-10600) and install a SSD drive or should I just buy a new, more professional grade, laptop (like the ThinkPad T series)?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

Could someone help with a sluggish WinXP SP3 laptop? I'm only using this machine for general usage (no hi-end gaming, or high graphics usage). I has been choking up a bit lately, but want to nip things in the bud before it gets unusable. I attempted some of the suggestions that were given to others with the same symptoms as mine, but with very limited success. Some programs are acting a bit strangely lately also, but not crashing... just slow reacting. Internet web sites load slowly too.
Here is my SYSINFO result:
Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.2
OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 3, 32 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.40GHz, x86 Family 15 Model 2 Stepping 7

Hi this is my first post and i was referred here by a friend. My laptop seems to be running slower than it was back when I first got it. My friend said to post my problem here and you guys would help me fix it. He said it's probably unwanted programs starting at start-up but i'm not really sure what's supposed to start and what's not supposed to start so any help to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

I am running Windows XP 2002 SP3 on my laptop along with McAfee Security Center which is provided by AT&T. The laptop has historically ran very smoothly, but I noticed the performance starting to degrade about 2-3 months ago. It is now to the point where I am suspecting some sort of infection or malware because the performance is so bad. Sometimes, the CPU performance locks at 100% for long periods which explains the slow performance. But other times, there is no explanation ... the CPU performance appears normal (fluctuates between 0-25%) yet the laptop remains sluggish.

I have not made any system changes or recently added any new applications other than coupon printing apps that I have been told are safe.

Can you please help me determine what may be causing this problem? I'll be happy to provide any additional information or run any tests deemed necessary.

Thanks in advance for your help,
-Vanessa

Welcome back to BCWould you run a quick scan with MBAM?Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.Download Link 1Download Link 2MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
For instructions with screenshots, please refer to the How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Guide.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button. The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.Exit MBAM when done.Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

A:Extremely sluggish 64 bit Gateway laptop

Gateway MT6460 Notebook

It appears it came with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 TK-53 1.70 GHz dual core processor and 1 GB of DDR2 RAM and Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit.

It appears you maxed it out with 2 GB of RAM and installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit in it.

Between the combination of using the most system-hungry version of Windows 7 there is with a slow processor and only 2 GB of RAM, you can expect it to have the speed and performance of a turtle.

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

Before we can help you any further, you need to do the following in that notebook:

Download MGADiag and save it to your desktop.

Double-click on MGADiag.exe to launch the program.

Click "Continue".

Ensure that the "Windows" tab is selected (it should be by default).

Click the "Copy" button, the leave the report window open.

Paste the report back here in your next reply.

A:Laptop slow start & sluggish

Well, it sounds like you either have too many programs running for the amount of RAM your computer has, or you have malware installed on your computer, or a combo of both.

512 MB of RAM is usually enough for the average XP user. But this depends upon how many programs are starting each time you reboot the computer. What I suggest is pressing ctrl + alt + del to bring up the Task Manager. Under the Performance tab tell us the numbers you see under Physical Memory. Both for Total and Available.

You have limewire installed, huh? That is probably the problem. It has been written that 80% of what you download from a peer to peer site is infected. This is the likely cause of your problem, as malware is typically poorly written and can eat up system resources, and basically just causes havoc on a system.

I have been running Windows 8 on my laptop (an Acer Aspire, see the attached system photo for specifics) for some time now, but lately I have been experiencing some serious performance issues. 
 
Start up/login is slow, typing in OneNote or a Word doc is a nightmare, I have to use Outlook for short periods, and everything else seems to be about 2 steps behind from where it once was. This has happened very suddenly. 
 
Task Manager shows that my processor speed is relatively low, but my memory is maxed out, typically from windows processes. The system tools say the fragmentation is running weekly, as with most of all the other utility fixer-ups. 
 
I mostly use my laptop for school work and email (and an occasional round of Half-life), but that's about it.
 
Any suggestions on how to get my computer back to where it was??

First post so hopefully it's in the right place and I can find some help.

A couple of days ago I got infected with the FakeHDD (or similar) virus/malware. I used the instructions found here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic405109.html/page__hl__fakehdd to remove. The Dell Inspiron 1501 got very sluggish afterward. I checked the task manager and found what appeared to be a ridiculous amount of services running (most in the background I assume). The CPU usage bounces from 30% to 70% or so but when I start using a program it jumps right to 100%.

I used a system scan with MalewareBytes and most recently Kaspersky. I also looked into but did not try any of the startup selective programs.

I was hoping to get a little direction here on the next step to solve this problem.

Thanks in advance.

Time to get the much superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Everything you need is in the blue link, including Special Notes for Dell Owners at the end.

Since Recovery and Tools won't run afterwards you can run Dell Diagnostics now to check over your hardware, even run Factory Recovery if you want to see how that performs.
Dell Diagnostics Utility - How to Run the

But if you keep the Factory preinstalled version I would Clean Up Factory Bloatware.

Hi m4rk and welcome to TSF.

Could you give us your full system specs so we can see what we are working with. If you are unsure what your specs are, download and run Speccy, then when it's generated the information (about 10 seconds) go File>Save Snapshot, and attach that .speccy file as well. (You will need to zip it to attach it here: Right click on it and select 'Send To'>'Compressed (zipped) Folder'.

Also, can you download and install Autoruns and run it. Let it generate all the information (shouldn't take long) then go File>Save and save the AutoRuns.arn file to the desktop. Zip it (right click on the .arn file and select 'send to' and choose 'Compressed zipped folder) and attach it back as well.

Hello I have a friend's VERY (malware HP free) Laptop sluggish running HP laptop Its running Windows Home Premium The laptop is running VERY sluggish which is to say once it boots into Windows if I try and accomplish anything like starting a program or running a task or even updating Windows the laptop will become HP Laptop running VERY sluggish (malware free) non responsive and lockup For example currently I've tried to start Google Chrome about minutes ago and it still hasn't launched The laptop won't complete Windows Updates as well I started this process in the Virus forum and was assisted by moderator Chemist He has declared the laptop malware free The thread that I started over there can be seen here http www techsupportforum com foru sh- html His advice was to come here I've never experienced a system this unresponsive and don't know how to fix it The only thing I'm really sure of is that a previously fast laptop like this should not be behaving as it currently has Please help Thanks Matt HP Laptop running VERY sluggish (malware free)

A:HP Laptop running VERY sluggish (malware free)

What follows is "Computer Housework" that should be done on a regular basis.

Check Disk.
Defragment
Disk Clean Up
Temporary Files Removal

FYI
Increase PC speed: Optimize your computer, help your PC run faster

Browsers.
Delete non used add ons.

Make sure your windows Update is running.
All programs MUST be updated regularly.

If overclocking stop.

On a regular basis check in Task Manager/ Processes/ All Users to see what is running there.

Check in Event Viewer for errors frequently.
Note any with a red mark in Application

Monitor regularly >Perfmon - {Task manager - resource monitor - CPU, Memory etc}

Remove any software you have evaluated and decided you don't want to keep.

If necessary >Run: SFC /scannow (from a command prompt) - and let it check/repair/verify your system files

Some people optimize and compact the registry.
This makes me VERY nervous and consequently I don't.
Re Registry Cleaners -
Registry Cleaners are often considered to be helpful.
Note - IMO - there is no reliable way for a third party program to know whether any particular key is invalid, redundant or neither.
Some registry cleaners may not know for sure whether a key is still being used by Windows or what detrimental effects removing it may have.
This has led to examples of registry cleaners causing loss of functionality and/or system instability.

Hi,
 
Have an older HP Pavilion, rarely used but always seems to be working harder than it should have to when I do use it. I assumed it's just old and painfully slow.
 
It is connected to an external monitor which I switched off and just left it running assuming updates or system scan had the hard drive working for several hours offline.
 
Got fed up, turned on the monitor and there is video playing full screen. Hit escape to get out of full screen and the video just stops. No player running and hard drive still working.
 
Defender did not run a scan and neither did Avira. Not sure if it was defraging but still no explanation for the video playing.
 
Any ideas as to what's happening here would be appreciated.
 
Thanks in advance.

A:Laptop sluggish, freezing and zipping issues

I have the same problem as these people:

http://www.vistaforums.com/error-me...led-create-security-options-dialog-t3287.html

But most of them say unistalling antivirus software did the trick. I don't have any antivirus software installed, and I just completed a clean installation of my OS.

About two weeks ago my laptop fan broke, so in the meantime I've been using a usb fan to keep the laptop cool. My troubles started around that time so I'm thinking maybe the laptop usb fan has maybe messed up the electrical circuitry.

I don't know. I will be getting a new laptop fan in a week. Hopefully the usb fan is the culprit.

A:Cpes clean launcher exe and overall sluggish, crashing laptop

Hello crASHed I would like to welcome you to the Malware Removal section of the forum.Around here they call me Gringo and I will be glad to help you with your malware problems.Very Important --> Please read this post completely, I have spent my time to put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier, faster and smoother for both of us!Please do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the "Follow This Topic" Button, make sure that the "Receive notification" box is checked and that it is set to "Instantly" - This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.These are the programs I would like you to run next, if you have any problems with one of these just skip it and move on to the next one.-AdwCleaner-Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.Close all open programs and internet browsers.Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.Click on Scan.After the scan is complete click on "Clean"Confirm each time with Ok.Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.-Junkware-Removal-Tool-Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".The tool will open and start scanning your system.Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.When they are complete let me have the two reports and let me know how things are running.Gringo

I'd been assuming that my sluggish browsing over the last week or so was related to a combo of being on slow dialup and using Vista. However, it seems that McAfee pulled a trick on me and turned its firewall on, even though I had turned it off. Now that I have only one firewall running, I'm navigating much faster than I had recently. Would the sluggish browsing have been a likely result of the conflicting firewalls? (Yes, I do know to run only one, as well as only one resident AV app.)

A:Sluggish, Sluggish Browsing

Your conclusion seems logical. Each of the two firewalls examining packets and arguing with one another could certainly slow down your connexion.
Keep tabs on changes (or lack thereof) on your navigation speed.
Regards,
John

Hi I havent used the computer for some months but this week I pressed the ON button again Now I notice a sluggish reaction when I want to open a folder or cause? Sluggish be can the XP..what pressing the start menu button About to seconds it stalls and Sluggish XP..what can be the cause? then finally executes the Sluggish XP..what can be the cause? action I suspect hardware failure because this is a brand new installation of XP with SP and all the latest drivers Now here is what I have tried so far -MEMtest comes up with errors -I installed an extra exhaust fan in the back -Vacuum cleaned all the dust -Speedfan Sluggish XP..what can be the cause? reports temperatures around idle for every component BUT I noticed a degree jump every now and then for TEMP CPU Thats weird System specs watts psu too little xp geforce NF -S Audigy Samsung Spinpoint HD Now what do you guys think Any ideas whats wrong here I have been having startup problems and videocard driver install problems too When playing a game every now and then I get an abnormal FPS drop for to seconds This may coincide with the temperature rise described above Thanks for thinking with me nbsp

A:Sluggish XP..what can be the cause?

When you boot up there is the bios summary screen that lists all of the hardware componets. Try to hit pause so the screen stays on the screen. What is the cpu ghz reported as?

I have seen computers that have taken a surge hit have the bios then default to cpu ghz setting way below what they should be. So if you have a 2ghz chip and it's reported as running at 1ghz you know you have an issue. This can be corrected in the bios settings.

A:Sluggish

Hello GamED,
It sounds like it just needs a good clear out of all the accumulated junk that our PC's pick up these days.
I will give you some links to free apps that will do just that.
Download, and then run these in this order..

Malwarebytes.org

CCleaner - Download
Use both parts of CCleaner. (backup your registry when prompted).

Auslogics - Download Auslogics Disk Defrag

When you have done that, (ran all three app's), go to, Start > Run > and type "msconfig" (no quotes), > Startup tab, from here you can see what is being loaded at startup, anything you disable here can be started manually when/if needed. Be ruthless here, just keep the essentials, get rid of everything that wants to update itself, all the add on's, you will be surprised by the affect this can have.
When you have done all this, you should see an improvement in the performance.

Update all your drivers, sound, video, chipset, and any other drivers you may have.

When finished can you go to this site, download and run the software, then post a log with your next post thanks.

Trend Micro HijackThis - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

This will let us see what is going on, after you have done all of the above.
This will take some work on your part, unfortunately there is quick fix for this.
Give this a try, good luck and post your results when finished, thanks.

Hi linda0929, Please take notice of the forum rules in order to recieve the proper assistance.
 
"
Forum Rules
When posting your problem, do not run and post a ComboFix log. ComboFix is a tool that should only be run under the supervision of someone who has been trained in its use. Using it on your own can cause problems with your computer.To receive help, you should instead provide a detailed description of your problem, detailed word-for-word error messages that you are receiving, screenshots of strange behaviour, and your operating system. This information is much more useful to our helpers than a ComboFix log. "
 
Please provide a detailed description of the problems you are having, for example "My computer is sluggish when browsing the Internet using any of my browsers, which are Firefox, Chrome and IE" or "My computer is sluggish when I try to open any programs"
 
Thanks,

A:pc has been really sluggish, please help

Hi passnoid and welcome to TSF.

After your system has been cleaned, if you are still having psu problems, I would head over to the Hardware Forum and post there. There are plenty of hardware (and psu) experts ? they?ll advise you about that.


You may wish to Subscribe to this thread (Thread Tools) so that you are notified when you receive a reply.


Please read these instructions carefully and then print out or copy this page to Notepad in order to assist you when carrying out the fix. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.


HijackThis in Temp Folder
You are running HijackThis from a temporary directory. It needs to be in a permanent folder. Please go into Windows Explorer, click on C:\ then click on File > New > Folder and call it HJT , or another name of your choice and move the HJT files to this folder. The program creates backup files that we may need to use later. If the program is in a Temporary folder, files may be deleted by you or automatically if your system is set to empty temp files.



Show Hidden Files
Go to My Computer > Tools > Folder Options > View tab and make sure that Show hidden files and folders is enabled. Also make sure that the System files and Folders are showing / visible. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files option.



Downloads
Please download Cleanup! or use this Alternate Link if the main link does not work and install it. You will use this later.
*NOTE* Cleanup deletes EVERYTHING out of temporary folders and does NOT make backups. If you have any files in any TEMP directory and you need to keep them, then please MOVE THEM NOW!


Download Ewido Anti-Malware
Install Ewido Anti-Malware
When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck..Install background guard
Install scan via context menu

Double-click the icon on Desktop to launch Ewido

You will need to update Ewido to the latest definition files.
On the left hand side of the main screen click update.
Then click on Start Update.
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update Ewido.
When you have finished updating, EXIT Ewido.



Reboot
Reboot your system in Safe Mode.Restart the computer. The computer begins processing a set of instructions known as BIOS.
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8 (dependent on your system this may be F5 or another key)
Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
Use the arrow key to highlight Safe Mode and press Enter.



Uninstall Programmes
Click > Start > Control Panel > Add / Remove Programs and uninstall the following programs (if present):

MySearch
Viewpoint Toolbar
Weatherbug



HijackThis Entries
Open Hijack This and click on Scan. Check the following entries (if they still exist) (make sure you do not miss any)

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://ms101.mysearch.com/sa/srchlft.html

Download Ccleaner at www.Ccleaner.com and run the cleaner and registry tool. Also download, install and update Adaware from http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/ and run that to see if there are any spyware issues on your computer. If you find some critical issues download HijackThis and attach a log as a text file to this thread.

Hey, I don't know what can be wrong with XP SP3, I went through all the prequisites before posting here. I have run a HJT log. I would appreciate someone looking at it and maybe finding what might be SLOWWWWWING down XP. It's almost like Windows needs to think about what I want from it. I am running an Pentium 4 CPU with 2 GB memory ,500 GB HD.

1) What's the deal w/ SP3...I download it...I install it...& the next two days...'Windows Updates' is throwing more "necessary" (?) downloads at me. I thought SP3 was it...everything...nothing else necessary...no further support. What gives?

2) Also...(& more importantly), w/ both of my machines (running SP3...home music studio workstation & work PC)...the OS loads really, really, really, really slow now. Other functions are slow as well...like...the Start Menu...it seems to freeze all the time.

I'm wondering why I did this.

A:SP3 & Beyond (& Sluggish)

I run two comps. One has Xp Pro + SP2 and no other updates, runs 18 hrs a day.
The other has Win200 Pro and is updated automatically.
Neither comp has ever had a virus.
So, do you really need SP3?

im on an acer aspire 1640 and its really slow - it takes 5-10 minutes to startup, bit defender anti-virus isnt showing anything infecting the system - ive got alot of stuff shipped to my external hard-drive but its so slow.
ive defragged and ran disc cleanup a dozen times.

what else can i do?

browser - google chrome.
programs often used - dreamweaver and photoshop cs3 (500mb on hard drive, 500mb on external hard-drive for both) google chrome, dungeon keeper II, the default msn messenger, notepad.

A:so sluggish >.<

i ran tfc cleaner and atf cleaner - removed about 600 MBs altogether.

ran chkdsk
oembios.bin had clusters replaced.
still extremely slow.

I don't know what is left to try - raised pagefile to recommended values - scanned for malware viruses - cpu gpu usage normal - did windows built-in performance and memory diagnostics - no problems - did CCleanup - Made sure startup doesn't run anything out of the ordinary Windows is very sluggish Everything takes forever to start It feels like instead of an i gb ram I have a DOS-era pc I had that same issue before and it seemed to go away for a while when I reinstalled it all from scratch One week later its back in full-force I did have an issue one time when I ran Dell Diagnostics the PC Doctor complained about low memory and having to close some apps to initialize the scan but it made no sense to me because while that prompt was hanging the taskbar showed memory utilization was normal and even windows performance said there are no problems so I suspect the Dell application sluggish W10 really itself simply malfunctioned or something because I have no other explanation to this Anyone

A:W10 really sluggish

Having an Alienware myself, a bit an older model, I can attest that you shouldn't be having sluggish performance.

However, you stated it returned after a fresh install. That leads me to either something you've installed or a setting you altered. What kind of security software are you running and are you doing any tweaks with software or otherwise?

Download Combofix to your desktop.

Doubleclick combofix.exe

Follow the prompts.Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.When finished, and after reboot if it asks for one, combofix will open again to gather the necessary information for the log. This may take a while so please be patient. When done, Combofix will close and a log should open called combofix.txt.

I have been putting off starting this thread I have been thinking I must be doing something wrong I have used the following to check for malware and they all report my PC is clean COMODO Internet Security Malwarebytes ANTI-MALWARE SUPERAntiSpyware I have cleaned it with Advanced SystemCare and CCleaner I have defragged using Smart Defrag Prior to using all these applications I checked I had the latest version and that they were all up-to-date Despite doing all of these things my PC is really sluggish It has been this way ever since I upgraded it from Windows to Windows This PC is Pc Sluggish relatively new It came pre-installed with Windows Until I upgraded to Windows it worked like a dream It now feels like computers used to do with very little RAM and I would say Windows was quicker than what I am currently dealing with I am at a loss as to what else I can try to do with it to make it Sluggish Pc run well again nbsp
