Start Windows XP is very slow

I use windows XP SP3 32 - bit edition. Start my computer is very slow and even after turning it on, it does not recognize the commands more than 2 minutes. My computer RAM is 1 GB. I also used the system configuration utility to see what programs open at startup, but there were so many that I didn't know which ones to stop and who not to help, please.

After installation clean Windows XP, the problem is resolved and the startup of the computer is now very well. Thanks to all who helped.

  • my windows xp is very slow

    Please help me

    my windows xp is very slow, when startup is also very slow, that it takes 5 to 6 minutes only to windows startup. and when you open the app also very slow. I tried to clean up using reg cleaning etc. all the product (but trial ones), disk cleanup and defragmentation. I don't know what to do anymore.

    Please help me

    I suggest that you tell us more about your system and then do a few scans for malware and fix performance issues.

    It makes no sense to try to resolve a performance problem on the system without knowing anything about it or who might have an infection on this subject.

    I suggest you stop "try" things too and if you can tell us the names of the cleaner and other products that you have already tried that would be good to know (so we do not suggest that you already have).

    When we have a known starting point, then begin to fix things (don't try things).

    Please provide additional information on your system:

    What is your system brand and model?

    What is your Version of XP and the Service Pack?

    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, MSE, Comodo, etc..

    The question was preceded by a loss of power, aborted reboot or abnormal termination?  (this includes the plug pulling, buttons power, remove the battery, etc.)

    The afflicted system has a CD/DVD drive work?

    You have a true bootable XP installation CD (it is not the same as any recovery CD provided with your system)?

    Fill in the blank: my system worked well until: _.

    Please provide additional information on your system:

    Click Start, run and enter in the box:

    Msinfo32

    Click on OK and when the system info summary appears, click on Edition, select all, copy, and then paste the information here.

    For information about video drivers, expand components, click view, click on edit, select all, copy and then paste the information here.

    There will be some personal information (such as the user name and the name of the system), and anything that turns information private for you, simply delete the pasted information.

    This will minimize back Q & A and eliminate guesswork.

    Perform scans for malware, and then fix any problems:

    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware detection programs:

    Malwarebytes (MMFA): http://malwarebytes.org/
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/

    They can be uninstalled later if you wish.

    The scans by operating clean, then to solve any problems.

    Do, or do not. There is no test.

    I need YOUR voice and the points for helpful answers and propose responses. I'm saving for a pony!

  • HP Elitebook 8570p - Windows XP USB very slow and the transfer rate performance issues.

    Hello. I was wondering if anyone else knows some performance issues with the HP Elitebook 8570p and Windows XP Pro - SP3.

    I get a VERY slow start, general poor performance (waiting time when opening files and programs).

    I asked to burn in tests that show that everything is good.

    USB transfer rates are VERY slow (tried all ports of a Seagate FreeAgent USB drive, which works fine on other laptops etc.) for example a 30-minute transfer a 7gig single file of the USB HD on the desktop. Only 3 minutes to do the same on another laptop.

    I think there are problems with the drivers, like Windows 7 works very well and does boot from a bootable USB.

    USB transfer rate are also good when starting from a Windows boot environment.

    I installed HP SoftPaq Download Manager, and all the drivers are up to date.

    Hello:

    I think outside of the box here... Select the Intel (r) 7 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller instead.

    If it does not, I raise the white flag.

  • Windows / Microsoft Updates very slow

    We run a SBS2003 SP2 server 4 GB which controls DCHP etc, we get very slow downloads of Microsoft updates, it does not matter if the operating system is XP or 7, updates can take days to download.  I tried Cat 5 / wireless.  If I take a home machine updates work fine.  I changed the DNS on the server at the present time, it is using a public DNS, but it made no difference.

  • Windows XP is very slow

    My Windows XP SP3 is very slow. It freezes often. This has happened since a year now. I tried the following:

    • System restore
    • Antivirus software
    • sfc/scannow command.
    • Disk Cleanup
    • ScanDisk
    • CCleaner
    • Defrag C:
    • Clean boot
    • Last good known Configuration

    Can someone help me please? Thank you.

    You said that it always happens with a clean boot, so the question is probably related to hardware and not software.  In this case, it's probably broken memory or some other hardware fault.

  • Satellite U940 Windows 10 update, very slow start to the top

    Hello

    It looks after upgrade to win10, the SSD is not used to quickly boot up the laptop.
    How can this problem be solved?

    In tools, defragment disc, it shows all of my partitions as SSD drive so I can't defragment.
    Why are they displayed as SSD? I think that the basic motivation is a 500 gb HHD and only a 32 GB SSD is included.

    Also in the management of the computer disk SSD drive shows only 11.22 GB of capacity and is not used (all 11.22 GB free)

    Help, please. I want to get the quick start of the win8.1 and at the same time be able to defragment my HARD drive.

After installing some updates, the computer became so slow - especially during the same thaat start move the cursor of the mouse became a problem. Even the sound of windows when loging in is just sounds bad.

    Usually, I found that this happens when installing .NET updates - if you give the machine 20 or so minutes to regroup and then restart, the problem disappears usually.

  • Windows Media Player very slow on network

    After having upgraded to Windows 7, I noticed that Windows Media Player 11 is painfully and stupidly slow, during the handling of the media streamed on my network.

    A playlist with just 100 items may take minutes to load and actually it scrolling... Well, glacial activity seems fast in comparison. I actually cannot scrolling playlists from a PC on a network - it's this slow. It is enough to click the scroll bar and hope I hit to the right place!

    Once that she's going to get, that's fine. The media broadcasts nicely and theres no lag. However, for the first two minutes, I can't jump on video, or pass them / prev item...

    Is this a known issue? Perhaps with knowledge to solve?

    Boring technical details:

    PC running Win 7, server with media running Windows Vista SP2.
    While the server is not exactly modern, do not this slow - it responds very well when you use desktop to distance or standard network of navigation, for example.

    Playlists are created by mounting the disc of servers and just drag media in the playlist. Nothing complicated.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Kind regards

  • Windows Update program very slow to download updates

    I have windows vista Home premium installed on my PC.  Whenever I try to install updates by using the Windows Update program, updates take a long time to download.  Today (Sunday December 19 09 09:30-11:30 - Australia, Melbourne time) I tried to download 6 updates of 7.3 MB in size, and it's always full to 98 per cent.  It is not my internet connection, I can view web pages from the USA and the Australia quickly enough that I download updates.  In my view, that the problem is a problem of Microsoft server.  It is almost impossible (in addition to a lot of wasted time) to keep windows up-to-date with this ridiculous of download speeds.  I regularly have to quit smoking, and then try again.  Whenever I try to update my Windows operating system I experience these low download speeds.  I don't feel these issues with other web pages / other applications (for example SUN's Java) which updates can be very large!

    Can anyone help fix this problem.

    my PC connects to the internet through a wireless USB...

    Ah! Long story, short version: find a fixed connection (DSL or cable) connection or a reliable & strong WiFi connection (for example, at the House of a friend, your school or public library), and then run Windows Update manually.

    99% (AKA critical) Important security updates are released on the second Tuesday of each month (for example, Jan 12-10; 09 Feb-10; & ff) about 12 times noon Seattle (USA) (which would be the second Wednesday of each month in Melbourne). Do yourself a favor and make a mental note to use such alternative access & update manually on the second Wednesday or Thursday of each month you will be sure to keep your computer fully patched.

    Long version: the popularity of connections 'WiFi' rises, we find that the more reports in addition to this problem in these forums and discussion groups. I suspect that these connections 'wifi' are either not strong enough or coherent enough to be used for purposes of automatic update. Assuming that Microsoft Update is your source of default update, [1] it can take 45 minutes or more for you to update manually. Automatic updates can take days to download/install updates, according to the request of the server.

    In another answer, I will post some tips Vista SP2 installation for you.

    PS: Your "wireless internet" connection might be good enough if the signal is strong enough (for example, 4 to 5 bars on your mobile phone). Then again, YMMV.

    =================
    [1] "what are the differences between Windows updates and automatic updates from Microsoft Updates?

    "While Windows Update provides updates specifically for Windows, Microsoft Update expands the service to download and install updates for other software from Microsoft, such as Microsoft Office and Windows Live. Update automatic is a feature that allows you to configure your PC to automatically download and install updates using each service, making it easy and convenient for you to keep your current Windows PC. »
