Very slow computer

Recommended Posts

I am feeling really foolish. I know I ran into this issue before but I cant figure it out. I am trying to fix my niece's laptop which is about 3.5 years old. It was never a super fast machine but right now it is crazy slow. I have run CC cleaner and malware bytes. I have run 2 virus scans without finding a virus. I am currently into hour 9 of a trend micro housecall complete scan which may take another 9 hours or so.

 

The issue is that whenever you open something up it takes a minute or more to open, web browsers doesn't matter which one, ie chrome, ff all take over a minute to start but run pretty good when it finally opens up. A crt, alt, del takes 50 seconds to 1.25 minutes to open as well. So just about everything takes way way way too long. |I see the CPU usage is around 50 to 90 percent with just housecall running and it is only using 20 to 25 percent at max. The memory usage ranges from 98% to a low of 60% after the computer has been running for a while. It starts out at 98% and slowly works it way down to a lower level. I have disabled everything at start up so it should be at 0 when it first starts.

 

The computer is running windows 7 64 bit and I have disabled windows defender as well

Any idea's would be a great help.

 

Thanks

Water

Without asking you to run various scans and seeing the results, first thoughts are applications trying to update in the background. That being, Windows updates, Antivirus.

 

Check, windows updates and allow it to run it's course then, check the antivirus.

 

What displays using the most on CPU with task manager open?

 

Have you booted into safe mode and checked for performance there?

Nothing shows up as using the CPU which is why I think it might be a virus. Doing a complete housecall now at 70% after 11 hours. I have not tried a safe mode boot yet. I did do a clean boot at right at the beginning crt alt del came up fast but about a minute later chrome would not open in under a minute. Once the virus scan is done I will try safe mode. If there are any scan to try let me know and I will run them once housecall is done

Housecall will likely find anything of a virus nature, but after it's finished try running Adware Cleaner >

 

Run it like this:

Click on ONE of the Two Blue Download Now buttons That have a blue arrow beside them and save it to your desktop.

Do not click on any links in the top Advertisment.

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.

I have done all of the above. I am just doing another spyware scan. It seems to be working better. Seems like the CPU usage and Memory usage is lower. I can now start IE in about 25 seconds and Chrome in about 30 seconds or so. CRT alt del happens almost instantly. I have a reboot to do in about an hour when this scan is done and then I am going to test it out some more. I have also delete the virus scanner and stopped windows update from running. I may try another Adw scan as well

Good

 

if problems continue we'll need to move over to the HJT forum where we can run more scans.

Seems to be good. On reboot starts much faster and IE opens in about 12 seconds the first time and about 2 to 3 seconds every time after that. Chrome takes about 18 to 20 the first time and under 5 every time after that. Pages load much faster too. I also update java and flash so a lot done but it looks like good results. I am going to leave it on all night and play again tomorrow.

 

Thanks for all the help, if you see anything wrong above please let me know.

Let's us know if anything changes.

 

I would only allow antivirus updates at this time.

Yes I think I have ever other update turned off. Which free antivirus works best with windows 7 64 bit???

several. LOL

I can recommend different ones but have no idea which would work best on your machine.

I use 1 (which is light on resources) and have premium/paid for malware protection to boot with windows firewall.

WOT seems very good I think it may become a go to program now. Thanks for that. I think I will go to AVG for my normal virus scanner

It was greatly appreciated like always. Seems to be working well this morning. Only issue and not a big one is that it takes a bit of time to open a browser for the first time when reboot or waking up from sleep. Fast after the first time so I can live with that little issue

 

Thanks again
