Solved Computer lagging in general.

Post by orgrel on Wed Jan 14, 2009 1:48 pm

2 nights ago I noticed severe intermittent lag on my keyboard inputs. I'd type a sentence and watch the letters tick in, then boom the rest of the sentence. It's still doing it now and now I notice it when watching video files and such. I've searched for malware myself but cant seem to find anything. So please find below my hijackthis log file.

Hello.

You are running two AV's, this is a bad idea as they can conflict and cause problems. I see Avast and AVG.
I would recommend that you remove AVG to avoid conflict and other future problems.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following programs if present.

  • AVG8

Lets kill some startup items

  • Open HijackThis
  • Choose "Do a system scan only"
  • Check the boxes in front of these lines:


    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NvCplDaemon] RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\system32\NvCpl.dll,NvStartup
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [nwiz] nwiz.exe /installquiet
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NVHotkey] rundll32.exe nvHotkey.dll,Start
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NvMediaCenter] RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\system32\NvMcTray.dll,NvTaskbarInit
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SynTPEnh] C:\Program Files\Synaptics\SynTP\SynTPEnh.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SigmatelSysTrayApp] %ProgramFiles%\SigmaTel\C-Major Audio\WDM\stsystra.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\jusched.exe"
    O23 - Service: Java Quick Starter (JavaQuickStarterService) - Sun Microsystems, Inc. - C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\jqs.exe


  • Press "Fix Checked"
  • Close Hijack This.

Zonealarm is known to cause slow downs sometimes, so consider switching Firewalls from Zonealarm to something else like Kerio, or Outpost

Clean your temp files with this.

Download ATF Cleaner

  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Click Select All found at the bottom of the list.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.


Reboot normally and let me know of any change.

I installed avast after the problem occurred to see if it would pick anything up. only got that running now.

I've always used zonealarm, and it's never caused problems before... I've tested my laptop disconnected from the internet with it turned off and still the problem persists.

I have also cleaned out the temp files (almost 400Mb worth) and still no improvement.

I have used Zonealarm before, somehow it doesn't like to run with other security softwares for me.

When I run it with other softwares it could take about 5 minutes for my computer to start up, try to unistall Zonealarm and see how the problem goes, also download and run this tool to make sure there are no leftovers:

AVG Remover
