Disk Cleanup compacted/slowed

Post by Szad on Wed Mar 31, 2010 11:42 pm

Don't know if this is right forum or not, but I'm hoping you can help. I used Disk Cleanup to compact over 9 million KB of files under the Compress old files section. It took quite some time and now my computer takes longer than ever to start up and Mozilla Firefox takes 5 or 10 minutes to load and then is very slow until it gets warmed up. Any idea what I have done or how I can speed things up. Thank you.

It took over six hours but ESET Online Scanner said it did not find any infected files and it did not clean any. I had a hard time cutting and pasting the log so I hope this is what you needed.

Now to get you off to a good start we will clean your restore points so that all the bad stuff is gone for good. Then if you need to restore at some stage you will be clean. There are several ways to reset your restore points, but this is my method:
  • Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > System Restore.
  • On the dialogue box that appears select Create a Restore Point
  • Click NEXT
  • Enter a name e.g. Clean
  • Click CREATE

You now have a clean restore point, to get rid of the bad ones:
  • Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > Disk Cleanup.
  • In the Drop down box that appears select your main drive e.g. C
  • Click OK
  • The System will do some calculation and the display a dialogue box with TABS
  • Select the More Options Tab.
  • At the bottom will be a system restore box with a CLEANUP button click this
  • Accept the Warning and select OK again, the program will close and you are done


To remove all of the tools we used and the files and folders they created, please do the following:
Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by OldTimer:

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click OTC.exe.
  • Click the CleanUp! button.
  • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
  • The tool will delete itself once it finishes.

Note: If any tool, file or folder (belonging to the program we have used) hasn't been deleted, please delete it manually.

==

Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] 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 Security Check by screen317 from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

Thank you for all your help. I'm sure everything you had me do improved my computer and I appreciate it. However, it still takes about 5 minutes to start up for me to even try to open firefox and when I do it takes another 5 or 6 minutes for firefox to open. Apparently this isn't a virus problem. Any suggestions. Thanks again.

Please download the latest version of Kaspersky GetSystemInfo (GSI) from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and save it to your Desktop.
Please close all other applications running on your system.

Please double click GetSystemInfo.exe to open it.

Click the Settings button.



Set it to Maximum



IMPORTANT! Then please click Customize - choose Driver / Ports tab and uncheck Scan Ports.


Click Create Report to run it.

It will create a zip folder called GetSystemInfo_XXXXXXXXXXXXXX.zip on your Desktop. Please upload the folder to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and click the Submit button.

Please copy and paste the url of the GSI Parser report (not the log) in your next reply.

Your logs are clean. How is your computer running?

Everything seems to work OK, however it still takes about 5 minutes to get going once I sign in and another 3 minutes for firefox to come up. I have 49 different icons on my desktop do all those programs have to load when I sign on? What can/should I get rid of?

Per the ccleaner startup menu I have 7 things that start when my computer starts:

ctfmon.exe
Filehippo.com
@OnlineArmor GUI
Adobe Reader Speed Launcher
Microsoft Default Manager
Adobe ARM
TkBellExe

While there are 26 other programs listed that are not set to start up. Is this normal or should I get rid of stuff.

Thank you. I'm sorry to ask what probably are dumb questions, but I'm just glad to have expert advice.

Thank you, I guess that helped a little. However, I feel better not starting up some things I don't really need.

FiliHippo update checker shows a newer QuickTime I can install when I try to install it I get this error message:

The Path 'C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\_is5F\QuickTime.msi' cannot be found. Verify that you have access to this locations and try again, or try to find the installation package 'QuickTime.smi' in a folder from which you can install the product QuickTime.

Do you want me to help diagnose that issue?

Download Quicktime to your Desktop and try again.

Hello, so I gave up on Quicktime however I went on the tutorials and guides forum and tried to change my msconfig to the multiple cpu boot for faster startup. However, I seem to have made things worse. Waiting to hear back on that forum. In the mean time I ran the Getsysteminfo again.
