Solved Old laptop getting slower

Post by pklong on Thu Jan 15, 2009 10:53 pm

Malwarebytes scan is clean. Just an old laptop mainly used for internet browsing and word processing at work has progressively became slower. Just wondering if any abnormalities are seen in log or any suggesstions.

Thanks!
Keith

Solved Re: Old laptop getting slower

Post by Belahzur on Thu Jan 15, 2009 10:57 pm

Hello.
I notice that you have Spybot's TeaTimer running. While this is normally a wonderful tool to protect against hijackers, it can also interfere with HijackThis fixes. So please disable TeaTimer by doing the following:
1) Run Spybot-S&D
2) Go to the Mode menu, and make sure "Advanced Mode" is selected
3) On the left hand side, choose Tools -> Resident
4) Uncheck "Resident TeaTimer" and OK any prompts
You can reenable TeaTimer once your system is clean.

Please make sure Teatimer is disable before we do this, otherwise this fix will fail.


I see you have Viewpoint Manager, this is considered as foistware instead of malware since it is installed without users approval but doesn't spy or do anything "bad". Read this article: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Additional info: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I suggest you remove the program now.

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

  • Viewpoint
  • Viewpoint Manager
  • Viewpoint Media Player
  • Viewpoint Toolbar


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

Deleted Viewpoint Manager and Viewpoint Media Player, but could not find Veiwpoint or ViewPoint Toolbar in uninstall list. No real improvement in speed (so far) and the reboot took foever for some odd reason. Here is new log.

Download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Click Select All found at the bottom of the list.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browser, do this also:

  • Click Firefox at the top and choose Select All from the list.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • NOTE : If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browser, do this also:

  • Click Opera at the top and choose Select All from the list.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • NOTE : If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

If the laptop is old, chances are it's on it's way out, it probably how a low amount of RAM, etc.
Nothing we can really do, but I'll move this to hardware forum and see what Doc thinks now I've done my bit.

Yeah, unfortunately pretty ancient... 1.00Ghz with only 256 mb RAM. Thanks for your help! Did you cross post to a different area?

Don't think so. I might have done, dunno. LMBO or ROFL
But yeah, 256mb is no where near enough to run XP.
