Hello,
I've had this problem for the last month. At first it seemed like a graphics driver problem from nvidia but then after they came out with an update there doesn't seem to be a fix. I wiped the hard drive and reinstalled everything and the glitchyness persists. Especially while running the internet and/or games the computer freezes for 15-45 secs, the internet seems very slow, and basic tasks seems slow. Usually the open windows on the screen will indicate that they are not responding. Then, they return to normal. I've run Avast, Malwarebytes, and spybot and see nothing of use. Please help me resolve this annoying issue.

Download Autoruns from the link in my signature below:

1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.
2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".
3: Click on the "Everything" tab
4: Remove any entries that mention "File Not Found" by right-clicking the entry and select Delete.
5: Go to File then to Export As or Save in some versions.
6: Save AutoRuns.txt file to known location like your Desktop.
7: Attach to your next reply.



Download and install Free Everest Home Edition
Open it.
1: In left pane expand Computer folder.
2: Click once on Summary
3: In upper menu, go Report
4: And then to Quick Report-Summary
5: Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.
Click the + by computer, click on Sensor. Get a screenshot and post it so I can check your temps and voltages...


DO NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING UNDER THE LINE THAT SAYS "DEBUG- PCI"

Everest report looks good so on to the Autoruns.

Open Autoruns, click on "Logon" tab, and UN-check:

+ "Adobe ARM"
+ "Adobe Reader Speed Launcher"
+ "iTunesHelper"
+ "QuickTime Task" "QuickTime Task"
+ "SunJavaUpdateSched"


When done restart computer and then:



Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:

It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged
Please do not run any other Auslogics programs other then this one as they may cause unwanted results.

I did the autorun process, ran TFC, and ran auslogics defrag; but the darn thing still freezes at times and says 'not responding'. Any other ideas?

Download Speedfan (The download link is to the right), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.
The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
To make sure we are getting all the correct information it would help us if you were to attach a screenshot like the one below of your Speedfan results.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard.
  • It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
  • Now go to Start and then to All Programs
  • Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
  • In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
  • Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
  • Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
  • Attach it to your next reply

So I ran what you told me and then I opened up my computer. I removed the graphics card and cleaned it and some dust out of the computer. Then, I re-installed the card and closed the computer. After my second reboot everything seems back to normal. Whatever it was that fixed it I am very grateful. Thank you for working with me and making sure it wasn't any malware. Thank You.

Looks like you may have found the issue. Could have been just dust buildup and things not running correctly like the fans. Could have had a bad connection with the video card from the dust. Lets see how it does for about 2 days and if everything is fine then we will consider this issue resolved. :)
