Hi Everyone

My friends computer is so slow when connected to the Internet it is practically useless. I have been through all of the steps suggested before I ran Hijack This (Trend Housecall took 5 and a half hours!). It runs fine when in safe mode but not in normal mode. I have updated all drivers.

I really hope someone can see what the problem is.

Thanks in anticipation

Mike

Let's see if it's too many programs running (which seems to be the problem). Before we continue, I will ask you to disable programs from startup. So if something suddenly doesn't work like it used to, just ask your friend to run the corresponding program manually instead since it's not starting up. Check and fix these in HijackThis:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HP Component Manager] "C:\Program Files\HP\hpcoretech\hpcmpmgr.exe"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HP Software Update] C:\Program Files\HP\HP Software Update\HPWuSchd2.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ATIModeChange] Ati2mdxx.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MSMSGS] "C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe" /background
O4 - Global Startup: HP Digital Imaging Monitor.lnk = C:\Program Files\HP\Digital Imaging\bin\hpqtra08.exe
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE
O4 - Global Startup: PsiWin 2.3 Connection Server.lnk = C:\Program Files\Psion\PsiWin\Psconsv.exe
O4 - Global Startup: Wireless LAN Utility.lnk = C:\Program Files\WLAN\WLAN\wlanutil.exe


Restart...any faster? If not, how much memory/RAM does this computer have?

Hi greyknight.

I agree that the number of programs running is too high and I've taken your advice and disabled the ones you suggested (and a couple of others that are not really needed). The computer is still not brilliant when connected to the Internet but as it's got a 2Gb P4 and 512Mb and as there are no malware problems I can now concentrate my efforts towards looking at hardware problems not software.

Thanks for your help in confirming that there are no malware issues.

Mike

Since it's only happening online, see if this will fix up that issue:

Download WinsockFix http://www.greyknigh.../WinsockFix.zip and unzip it. Then double click on WinsockFix.exe to run it.

Thank you, I have already tried WinsockFix but I used yours again. I also found a new control manager and updates for the Network card and now things are working well. Thanks
