Should be a relatively fast machine takes forever to start-up / load apps. For example, 9:10 from power on to loading Outlook. I've tried everything I could think of -- CCleaner, alwarebytes, disk cleanup / optimization, sfc / scannow, pruning down any startup items, power set to max performance, triple-checking all drivers are up to date, etc. Once the system is "warmed up" and I'm using it constantly, everything is fine -- quick, responsive, etc. If I leave for 10 min or more and come back, even though nothing has been set to power down / go to sleep, programs (already open) don't respond, etc., until the system "warms up" again. On startup / initial launches, and when coming back to the computer, CPU usage never gets very high (watching the CPU Usage gadget or Task Manager).My wife's computer, a slightly slower Dell bought at the same time and configured the same way, doesn't have any of these problems. (Mine is a Studio XPS 7100 Phenom II X4 820, 12G)
I've been having this problem with my laptop for a long time now its an hp pavillion dv4-4068LA. I just restored my system because it was very slow despite having tuneup utilities 2013 working on disabling start up programs. Everything was great when I restored my system until I started installing programs again including tuneup utilities and it actually did more damage than good to my start ups so I decided to permanently uninstall the program and do everything with Windows functions like msconfig and stuff. My startups are way faster now but not as good as they used to be, after 10 minutes of using my computer everything becomes really fast like the old times but I would like to have this speed right at the start up because I know it's possible.
Asus has some way of starting their programs that I can't find. In particular, I want to disable their Wireless Console 3 (wcourier.exe). There are other programs but I can't remember what they are right now. I can only tell you that is does not show up in msconfig or HJT. Where I can find these startup entries?
I bought this Fujitsu laptop for less than a year. Its only for my school work. It takes forever to bootup, startup and it sometime hangs when I open up a program or typing.For the bootup, it takes very long time on the window logo, after that the black screen, followed by the welcome page with the loading cursor. Each of this process take a long time. For startup, its not so long but its still quite lag. For the opening up of program and typing, everytime I open up my visual studio, it will take a long time to show up and even if it showed up, it will be "not responding".So I will have to open it a second time before I can start using itWhen I am typing my codes, it will randomly hang and show that the program is not responding. I am still able to move my cursor though.
Every time I start up normally into Win7 everything is fine for a couple of minutes. I'll open a few programs, then after a few minutes of them running they'll hang and enter the 'not responding' mode. (firefox, steam, IE). If I don't already have task manager running the system will basically be unresponsive and the only thing I can do is reboot manually. If I have task manager running I can sometimes end a process or two but some will remain open & unresponsive. Any programs that are working (including task manager) disappear when I minimize them and no programs appear on the task bar, (though they can be retrieved with alt+tab).
McAfee also has 'real time scanning' permanently disabled.
This is all very strange as there was nothing wrong four days ago when I was away, and the symptoms occured within 2-3 minutes of booting up this evening. The system runs in safe mode.
I just purchased a new laptop. I already have problems - first, the laptop seems to have issues in hibernation mode. Second, and worse, it's always freezing and not responding. I have installed very few programs right now - WoW for my son, firefox. My university also installed microsoft office 2010, another program that allows me to log onto their network, pharos, and an antivirus program called landesk - which I think may be the issue. I tried locating the antivirus program to uninstall, but couldn't. Where should I start?
Also, I'm using Windows 7 and its a 64 bit system.
Whenever I right click on a file such as a photo or even IE the computer goes into a non responsive mode. If I wait it out at least 45+ seconds generally the menu comes up. This is pretty frustrating. Have seen a few posts with the shellexviewer etc and started to go that route but I decided to do a restore at a earlier point and now and looking for a fresh perspective
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and lately my Pictures folder is taking an age to open and frequently doesn't respond.Everything else seems to work fine and opens normally - it's just this one folder.
I just reformated my Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit if I could repair my slow LAN internet. Speed is okay when I plug it to my laptop. But on my new CPU, it slows down, like my usual 50-60kbs download speeds go to 2-3kbps and even lower. I've manually downloaded the latest LAN driver and still not working.

I am finding often that when I am running programs that even whilst they are running I get a response at the top of the program especially when I use Pro Tools say that it is not responding. I have adjusted my hard drives so that they don't go to sleep after a set period so why is it that I am constantly receiving this error?
As i write this my Firefox has stopped like 8 times from the time i opened Firefox. my programs stop for like a min and then continue like nothing happened. i used avg virus scan and used malwarebytes and spybot search and destroy and no threats are found. i play world of warcraft the game also freezes or use any programs they freeze for less then a minute and then it starts to run again. i can still minimize the application and my mouse moves around.
im running windows 7 on an Asus M3A32-MVP DELUXE
AMD Phenom II x4 940 8 gigs of ram Radeon hd 4890 graphics card
I've been noticing my system is very slowly lately. I'm also constantly getting "not responding" messages. So far I have tried sfc /scannow, and chkdsk /r . Both came back fine. Suspecting Hard drive problem I downloaded and ran Western Digital's Data Lifeguard Diagnostics (it's a WD drive). That too came back with a clean report. I have run the usual maintenance duties like defrag but still no good. Also checked for malware with Spybot.
I'm getting constant not responding errors in almost all programs, everything from Firefox to Photoshop and Lightroom to simply accessing various folders on my drives (both internal and external).The majority of the time the program hangs for up to 30 seconds and says Not Responsing and then works again. In Photoshop and Lightroom however, I have to restart the programs, they never start responding again. AVG and malwarebytes haven't picked up anything.
I have installed Windows 7 RTM and everything is working just great for more then a month. But now I am experiencing some problems when I am installing larger programs or games. When installation starts, the system starts to freeze and I cant even normally switch windows or browse on internet. This lasts until the installation is complete, then everything comes back to normal. The same thing is happening on my laptop.
Does anyone know why and how can I resolve this problem?
what could cause programs to become responsive and slow down, even though my memory usage is only about 50%?
I have an i5-2430 @ 2.0Ghz, 5GB RAM, win7 64bit, AMD Radeon 6650M 2.0GB RAM graphics card.
My machine slows down when i try to run 2 specific programs simultaneously, viz. pokerstars and holdem manager 2. I've had a guy from the software company have a look and he's not sure what the problem is either.
I am having big trouble with different programs "freezing" up for about 10-30 sec very often. I have looked to see if it was my RAM causing this, but that doesnt seem to be the case as they are pretty stable and not working max.
I have been searching through the forum and found this which looks like my problem, however haven't solved my problem:
Anyway, my computer's been having some ridiculously slow internet speeds for the past few days and whenever I do a troubleshoot, it states that the 'device or resource (DNS server) is not responding'. I've tried every possible solution I read online and I'm still experiencing this problem.
my power got knocked out in the middle of a system restore and since then a lot of my Microsoft programs and utilities have been having problems. Also, the start menu wont open by keyboard or mouse click, I can't uninstall programs from control panel, windows update will not work, and my audio just stopped working. I have already run a registry utility but not improvement. Please respond ASAP, as I am in finals week in my online class and have a paper due tonight.
Im running win 7 and IE 9 and im having problems starting programs and browsers.When i click on a browser nothing happens and i have to dbl click several times to get it to open.Then I have to wait a long time for it to load the home page. I have 4 browsers on my computer and the worst ones are IE 9 and firefox 4I replaced IE 9 a few days ago and it greatly improvedbut now it has reverted.
I have a HP Pavilion DV6-6009TX, I bought it last year during april. Initially, it was doing ok, but starting this year around February, the programs that I launch seems to be not responding every now and then. Even microsoft word, it freezes for a good 10-20 seconds everytime I save a document, and when I type halfway, it will stop responding and resume after around 15 seconds. The problem is even worst when I try to play games. The game will spike every 5 seconds, making it unplayable. What is wrong with my laptop?
My laptop screen was broken by being steped on over a year ago. It worked through my tv though with HDMI connection. Out of no where it stopped projecting image to my tv even though when I unpluged or pluged in the cable it would make noise and the screen would flash. This was in august. So I stopped using it and let the battery completely die and sit there dead as this corrected other problems in the past (such as a nasty pop up virus. So I found and RGB-PC cable and have hooked it up to my TV that way.Well now that I can see the screen I have tried to use it and it is constantly freezing every program it uses and will last for a long time including task manager. It has rendered the computer un-usable. I have run a virus scan, disk clean and defrag and it still won't work. I also checked the event viewer and the system log wouldn't open. So I saved and cleared it as per advice on this site. Still the same.
NOTE: When HDMI crashed the computer was turned off using the power button a few times as I could not see anything. Also on one of the boot ups when this problem started to occur and instead of the regular safe mode screen option coming up the other screen came up (something about doing a scan and fixing it) and I guess it timed out or I hit no or something but windows just booted up and haven't been able to use the laptop properlky since. Not sure if its related but figured it was worth mentioning
My Internet Explorer and Real Player programs stop responding on almost a daily basis.I'm wondering if these problems are hurting my computer because i just got it fixed and how to stop them from happening again.
Apps were not responding and computer is hanging up... Now computer will now complete startup process (even in safe modes). Windows and norton antivirus suspect Oem-drv86.exe is a threat, but, neither offer a fix.
