Computer Slow To Load Up And Shut Down
For 2 days now it takes my computer a long time to load up and a long time to shutdown. I did a scan for spyware, trojans and virus's and it still hasn't fixed the problem.

Computer Slow To Shut Down, Random Restarts
I am wondering if they are all related. When I click start>shut down, computer hangs up for about 5 minutes before the box, shut down, restart, etc. shows up-computer then shuts down normally.When I print documents, the first will print, then it takes a long time before another will print. The printer is new and works fine. It is connected to this computer, but shared over a home network. Does the same with the other computers in the network.The computer screen will occasionally go dark and just reboot.

Computer Running Slow: Can't Load Websites?
I have Windows Service Pack 2 and all of a sudden my computer is running painfully slow. Takes ages to boot up, desktop images don't appear for ages, anything I click on doesn't happen for a few minutes. Internet is the same. I was going to look up some info on the menopause, but websites taking so long to load I think I may have been through it by the time I find out about it! AVG says no virus found.

Lsass.exe Causing System To Shut Down / Websites Wont Load?
Ok I'm getting this message now saying that something called lsass.exe is causing my pc to just shutdown while I'm right in the middle of something. And, earlier today I deleted some registries by mistake and computer just went haywire. I think for the most part I got them fixed but now pc freezes up and some sites take forever for me to load or certain programs like musicmatch radio and mtv.com.

Slow Shut Down
I have an Alienware Sentia laptop with a 1.8Ghz processor, 1Gb RAM running XP Sp-2 It has AVG Firewall & Virus guard & I regularly run Spybot Search & Destroy. It starts up quickly & runs fast, I love it. until it's time to shut down. After clicking the red Shutdown button it takes nearly 90 seconds before the lights actually all go out. The screen does it's "windows is shutting down" bit & then goes black but the green LED for disc activity continues for 30-40 seconds which seems an age when you're just stood waiting for it.Anyone any ideas to speed it up? Or know why it does it (I won't mind so much if I know why) I'm sure it wasn't this slow for the first few months.

Slow Startup And Shut Down Speeds
It was configured with windows vista I was using Windows Vista 32bit for 2 months and then switched to 64 bit for the next 2 months. Things were slow, startup, shutdown, normal working etc. Some games ran slow (Halflife 2:Episode One, Company of Heroes), some games ran perfect (Oblivion Elder Scrols, Splinter Cell Chaos Theory). Then I switched back to XP. we have really degraded our thinking level. We guys used to complain about the slow startup and shut down speeds of XP.

Certain Sites Load VERY Slow
I've got a very peculiar problem with my desktop computer. When I go to the Delorme website or support forums, pages are exquisitely slow to load, and the forum pages never complete loading fully. The problem doesn't seem to be with their site, since I can access these same pages just fine when using my laptop, or my daughter's computer, all plugged into the same cable-modem connection as my desktop, through a hub/switch. All 3 systems are Win XP Home/SP2, with all critical updates installed. The system having the problem is a 3 year-old Gateway 2.2 GHz Pentium 4, 1 gb RAM, with ample hard drive space available. Both SpyBot S&D and AdAware SE are run regularly, and have been run recently, along with NAV2005, and no virus, worms, spyware, etc. are found. It is running IE 6.0 It is just these Delorme sites that exhibit this problem, with all other sites loading extremely quickly on my fast cable-modem. In face, PC Pit Stop usually clocks me in excess of 4000 kbps download most of the time.

Slow Load At Startup
it posts fine,but takes 4 minutes from desktop appearing to fully load (noticably the last icon to appear on the taskbar is the LAN connection),the old pc would be ready to work within 30 seconds of powering on.i've tried booting with all non-essential startup items disabled via msconfig.reconfigured bios several times,using almost every bios version designed for this board,currently using the bios specifically designated for this CPU on this mobo.ram is configured according to mobo specs (its in the right slots).i am aware the agp card is somewhat underpowered,but it did provide reliable quality functionality on the old PC.
this was a clean XP home install (same disc used on previous PC) fully updated,hdd's are all ntfs partitions,regularly cleaned up and defragged.the best information i can gather from ASUS forums is that there is a problem with the on board ethernet (intel pro 1000) however there does not seem to be a solid fix or any updated drivers available,the LAN connection does drop in and out at random times sometimes frequently (enough to make me doubt it is an ISP problem) and sometimes not for a week are there any further suggestions?should i be disabling the onboard ethernet and installing a standard PCI 10/100 as i have gathered a faulty ethernet port does slow XP load times considerably.i should mention i have had the CPU professionaly tested good and ASUS support seems to be somewhere in the bermuda triangle for the p5p800se.

Webpages Slow To Load Or Not At All
Webpages take forever to load. Sometimes they don't load at all. All webpages are this way not just some. Either they just set there saying they are waiting. Or it says done but the screen is white. Or after hours it loads but not completely. Or I get the message that ie cannot open the webpage. You just recently fixed a DNS hijacker with combofix. I have ran antivirus and antispyware and antimalware. The machine seems clean.

SP2 Slow To Load
From the time I log in, it takes 5 minutes for the desktop to load & another 21 minutes for the system tray to complete loading. While waiting for the system tray I have time to have coffee & do the crossword puzzle. I would much rather be reading my Email.

Folders Slow To Load In Same Window
I've got a Dell running Windows XP Home with a very specific but hard to search for problem:
1. Opening any folder in the same window (folder options set to 'open folder in same window') is incredibly slow (minutes) but opening any folder in a new window or setting folder options to 'open each folder in a new window' is perfectly normal.
2. Internet Explorer takes minutes to load a new page (you can see that it's loaded in the staus bar but you can hear the computer grinding for minutes until it displays the new page). Firefox is just fine.Both of these issues appeared at exactly the same time.
3. Probably unrelated but windows installer is not functional? (I haven't looked into this much yet)
Nothing unusual is running in task manager and none of the normal processes are running extra hard. I have done the basic spybot, adaware, and regfix scans with a couple files removed but none that affected this issue.

Load Slow Internet Pages
I have a cable connection and lately I have notice that most of my internet pages are laoding painfully slow. I have clean up the temp files, cache and have check for adware/spyware. I am directly connect to the cable modem so there is no interference with a router. My cable provider says there is no "packet loss" when they ping by IP. They suggest that it is something to do with my PC any suggestions?

Computer Running Slow - Not Just Internet Slow But Onboard Slow
Lately my computer has been extremely slow, not just internet slow but onboard slow. For example, if I click on an application from the desktop it will sit there for 10-20 seconds before anything happens. Occasionally I'll click multiple times on something and nothing will happen then 30 seconds later it will open multiple instances of things. This delay has been happening with just about anything I click on, acting like the computer's busy doing something else when nothing else should be going on. I've looked in the task manager and the applications column will be blank

Trying To Load Windows Xp / Load Set Up / Going To Load Files It Locked Up
First my computer was cutting off in the middle of any program. I decided to delete everything on the drive and reformat it and reload windows xp. While trying to load windows xp it would load the set up but when going to load files it locked up everytime. I tried also loading windows 98, 95 and they too locked up. At one point it said I had a virus in my boot sector and at another time it said I had a virus in my RAM. I got a program called PC Beginner to help partition my drive and redo the MBR. I can partition the drive and format it but windows still doesn't load. Now I wonder if there is a problem with the mother board and I have a dual bios board, I was wonder if there is a program loaded in the dual bios that may somehow causing my problem. If so what can be done to clear the problem? How can I get windows reloaded?
