Hello all,

 

A few days ago I reinstalled windows 8.1 (Enterprise 64bit) on my laptop (Lenovo G510) suspecting my system had been infected by some malware (R.A.T possibly) and I thought it would be best to give it a fresh start. So I went on and formatted the drive and installed Windows. After it was done I started installing the drivers one by one and then some necessary softwares. However, I noticed that laptop's running so slow, I had ESET Smart Security installed which is known its lightness and going esay on system resources. I then installed AVG PC TuneUP and ran a scan, didn't have much success. I desperately installed Windows 8 one more time thinking something might have wrong last time. I faced the same results again... The problem is when I run Task Manager for a split second CPU usage goes up to 100% and also Disk usage is so high and can't possibly start a program or virtually do anything while

copying files.

 

I then thought it could've been caused by outdated or incompatible drivers so I did download and installed the latest version of each driver, still nothing.

I tried to boot safe mode and system was still rather slow, system resource usage still high when running programs or copying from one partition to another. Could it be hardware failure? Or is it that the fact HDD space is low (790 GB of 930 GB used)? If so why did problems start right after the installation? Could it be caused by a certain driver or maybe some virus on a drive other than the one Windows installed on? My main problem is CPU and Disk leak and system is generally running slow now.

 

Thanks for reading, sorry for my poor English and any help or suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Nimation :)

I can try to assist you with your issue first. We'll take a quick look at this under a software angle, then test your hard drive to see if it's failing, alright? I just have one warning for you since you mentionned that you used AVG PC TuneUp.

warning.gifPC Booster/Tune-Up Program Warning!
"PC Booster/Tune Up" programs are part of the worst programs you can install on a system. When it comes to messing up your system (Windows), these are as worst as malware. They are completely worthless and useless to use. The worst is that they'll often take action on your system without you knowing, nor authorizing it, which could lead to your system being altered in a way you don't want it to be or even worst, a "broke" system. Every feature they provide, you can either do it natively under Windows, do it via another standalone executable (which is way easier and safer to use) or they aren't providing something you need. Here's a few examples:
  • Cleaning temporary files: TFC (standalone executable), CCleaner (installed), Cleanmgr.exe (in-built);
  • Managing start-up entries: Autoruns (standalone executable), CCleaner (installed), Task Manager and Registry (in-built);
  • Driver Updater: Not needed, all you need is to go on your manufacturer website so you'll be sure to get the right, official, working drivers for your computer or hardware;
  • Registry Cleaner/Defragger: Completely useless and also dangerous;
  • Disk Defragging: Disk Defrag (in-built), O&O Disk Defrag (installed), Defraggler (installed);
  • Powerful uninstaller: Not needed, only needed when you have to make sure a program is completely uninstalled. Revo Uninstaller have a portable version you can use;
  • "Enhanced" Task Manager: Procexp (standalone executable), Process Hacker (portable or installed);
  • "Active security": Any Antivirus and Antimalware can beat that, easily. These programs aren't made to replace Antivirus or Antimalware products and shouldn't be seen as such;
  • Repair Hard Drive issues: Simple chkdsk /r command under Windows (in-built);
Having such program installing on your system will just bloat it down and you have more chances to have issues by using them than without. These products are advertised as a program that can solve all your issues, remove every malware, speed up your computer performance over 100%, etc. The truth is that there's not a single program that can do that. First of all, these programs aren't made to remove virus and malware, leave this in the hands of Antivirus and Antimalware, period. Secondly, there's so many kind of issues under Windows that there's not a single program that can address them all. If you think that BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) issues can be solved by opening a program and clicking on a "Fix" button, then I'm sorry to tell you but, you're wrong. Also, you cannot boost the performance of a hardware over it's hardware capabilities. Of course you can overclock some components, like your CPU, RAM and GPU, but these aren't done via these programs, but via your BIOS interface. I could recommend you a program for every feature these programs advertise, and also tell you exactly in detail why most of them are completely useless, such as Registry cleaner (dangerous to use), and driver updater (dangerous to use, and also completely useless, it'll not improve your system performance). In the end, buying such programs is the exact same as being scammed (because this is what it is, a pure scam) and using one of these programs will result you in having a system less performant than prior to using it.

Relevant articles if you want to read more about PC Boosters/Optimizers and why they are useless:Now, follow the instructions below please.

I believe I ordered it from this site: www.npshop.net

well, fairly certain if you purchased that, that you got taken. that's not a legitimate windows OS. MS doesn't allow for rebranding of their software like that. you would NEVER get a legitimate disk that looked like that from MS or any real source of MS software.

also, the fact that you're running KMSpico to maintain your activation of the OS is even more of a clue that you're not running a legitimate license of windows (even if you were unaware of that fact)

 

to that end, we cannot continue offering support until you correct this issue.

I had no idea it was not a legitimate copy in all honesty, it says otherwise on the cover but that's understandable since there aren't many original software providers in this part of the world and I haven't heard of KMSpico before but let me get this straight, you're not going to help me solve the issue until I get a legit copy?

 I haven't heard of KMSpico before

 

well, it's showing as running on your computer, so it may be something they injected into the setup to activate the copy without talking to MS

 

and yes...we, by site policy, can't help you if you're running an illegitimate copy of windows.

 

you can contact Microsoft support and report the fraud. since you have the disk and the box you may have enough proof for them to issue you a legitimate replacement
