Windows 7 extremely slow startup

I have an extremely slow Windows 7 startup time. It takes 3-4 minutes to start and then 2-3 minutes before I can actually use the computer. I went into Ms-config and especially disabled services at startup, I got him to start with all my carrots and RAM MAX I tried Glary Utilities and Kingsoft PC Wizard to try to improve the startup time. Nothing did.

My specs:

Motherboard: AMD 760G Chipset

Graphics card: AMD Radeon R9 x 270.

CPU:   AMD FX - 4100 Zambezi overclocked to 3.8 GHz


Hard drive: 1 TB with about 450 GB of available.

I cannot fail to plug, and Windows works fine, once it gets past the 6-8 minutes to before I can actually use it. It's incredibly frustrating is the slowness. I'm open to suggestions. I have alos repeatedly run Norton anti-virus and found no viruses or issues.


After another reboot, it seems that the deletion of my anti-virus, corrected the problem of slow start. She went from 4.5 minutes to about 1 minute and 20 seconds.

    Best regards,

  • Why Windows 7 extremely slow on your laptop just multitasking ordinary?

    Okay, so it is a mystery to me. I'm a tech guy, btw.

    The scenario: I use a little old laptop with 2 GB of RAM. Have virtual memory turned on,

    In ADDITION, have a very fast USB plugged into USB 2.0 and implemented with 4 GB ReadyBoost.

    Using Windows 7 and this notebook can handle.

    Normally, the laptop works very well and is sensitive with place for 4-5 open applications. However, recently,.

    When I open several pages in a browser, it will slow down abruptly to the point where it takes 30-60 seconds

    Press the close button on a page and see my click and everything is not responding. I'm not talking about slowing down a bit,

    I want to talk about a sharp slowdown in the overall system which lasts 10 to 20 minutes, until what I managed to close some windows,

    each takes about a minute to close. Then it accelerates again.

    I checked the memory usage, and my programs use not yet 2 GB of physical RAM when this slowdown happens! But even if the

    pagefile is written it there is no way that this should make Windows so brutally fails. In addition, I have too many 4 gigs of readyboost.

    Something is very wrong with that and I'm curious as to why this phenomenon occurs and how can I solve it?

    No I don't have any spyware, as I said I'm a tech person, this is the basis. I know all this,

    It's something to do with the way Windows is not able to be managed properly.

    An overview of what on Earth is happening here would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you


    IE uses a lot of resources, especially CPU is what you slow down as only
    have 2 GB of physical RAM. ReadyBoost can help, however, this is only disc (caching speeds
    reading on the rise) and is not a replacement for real RAM.

    Think about it an absolute must - manually update your drivers.

    Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded: run DriverView - set
    SEE drivers to hide Microsoft - update those without drain in their names. (Also
    updated the BIOS and drivers from the chipset on the site of the constructor/the system motherboard).

    -Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded
    on your system. For each driver in the list, additional useful information is
    Poster: load address of the driver, description, version, product name,.
    company that created the driver and more.

    For drivers, visit Maker as replacements and system manufacturer of device which are
    the most recent. Control Panel - write - graphics card - device manager
    the brand and complete model of your video card - double click - tab of the driver-
    Note the version information. Now click on UPdate Driver (this can do nothing
    MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then do a right click - Uninstall - REBOOT
    This will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard
    If there are 3rd party with their own software and drivers and the other main device drivers
    you have.

    Now, go to the site of the manufacturer of system (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) (restore)
    and site (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get the manufacturer and device
    their latest versions. (Look for the system to update the BIOS, Chipset and software updates
    Site of the manufacturer here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN -.
    REBOOT after each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you are
    installation actually appears. This is because that some rollback of drivers before the
    later is installed (particularly that audio drivers) so install a driver - reboot.
    Make sure that it is installed and repeat if necessary.

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW to the device makers DO NOT RUN THEIR
    SCANNER - check manually by model.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    Installation and update of drivers under Windows 7 (updated drivers manually using
    the above methods is preferable to ensure the latest drivers from the manufacturer of system
    and device manufacturers are located)

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable driver facilities
    in the updates of Windows, which leaves on Windows updates, but it will not be installed
    pilots who are generally older and cause problems. If updates provides a new
    driver then hide it (right click on it) and then go get new ones manually if
    you want.

    How to stop Windows 7 automatically install drivers


    Refer to these discussions because many more excellent advice however remember to check
    your antivirus, the main drivers and BIOS update programs and also to solve problems

  • After Windows Update on 13/10/11 all reboots Windows is extremely slow and hard drive is on continuously.

    I ran the Windows, distributed update to my PC 10/13/11.  After restarting the computer is so slow as to be unusable.  I am able to get the Windows Task Manager to run, and it sees a minimum CPU (0-10%).  The hard drive light is on continuously.  The computer seems to be tied up access the hard disk.  The machine restarts do not help.  When you try to use Windows Explorer to view what is on the hard drive of each operation takes several minutes to complete.  I tried to launch the system restore to restore to before the update, but it shows a blank white screen.  Often trying to do something with the Windows Explorer I see in the title bar of Windows Explorer (not responding).

    How can I get the machine into a usable state?

    It's a shame that we know absolutely nothing about your system, but it's because the forums MS Answers does not prompt for any information system when a new question is asked.

    You can probably fix your calendar to restore system back to an earlier date, but that would leave you without the updates, so you should really understand what the deal is with them and fix it (eventually).

    Here's how:

    If your system restore page display only the title bar 'System Restore', or your accounts settings page of users shows that the 'User accounts' title bar and the screen where information needs to be is an empty white box...

    System Restore is a frequent target of attacks by malicious software.  If SR was working before and is now afflicted, run some scans and then fix any problems.

    Remember that the system restore is not a time machine.

    Just fix the immediate issuance of the calendar vacuum system restore:

    Looks like your file jscript.dll became somehow not registered so you can re-record it.

    There are probably a few other things that do not work you know yet, so fix them all at once.

    Re-registration of these DLLs is correct, even if they do not need renewal.  THERE

    Click Start, run, and in the box enter orders following one at a time.  Click the OK button to execute each command one at a time.

    regsvr32 jscript.dll
    regsvr32 vbscript .dll
    regsvr32 /i mshtml.dll (it's a look of slash)

    The last order for mshtml load the DLL but can also contain a harmless warning depending on your environment.

    Now check your timetable for restoration of the system and/or the user account settings page.

    After you get through the other 'methods', then someone can help your mounting system, but it will be easier and go faster without wild goose chase if you provide additional information, first:

    Provide information on your system, the better you can:

    What is your system brand and model?

    What is your Version of XP and the Service Pack?

    Your system have IDE or SATA disks?

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

    The afflicted system has a working CD/DVD (internal or external) drive?

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

    Now make some clarifications:

    Click Start, run and enter in the box:


    Click on OK and when system summary information is displayed, click on edit, select all (Ctrl-A), copy) Ctrl + C) then paste (Ctrl-V) the information here.

    The shape of plug the computer are as follows:

    It's no surprise that it is extremely slow. You have * way * too little
    RAM and you will never get a decent performance with this amount. 1 GB
    is the minimum necessary for performance * beginning * become
    acceptable for people whose needs are very light (because their)
    using the application is light). But for almost everyone, is at least 2 GB
    really need or that you are satisfied with the performance.
    In addition, a 40 GB hard drive is * small *. This isn't a performance problem,
    but unless you do not do much with your computer, you will be running
    more disk space very soon. You should have at least 160 GB or more.

  • Windows 7 is extremely slow to return to the screen saver mode.

    I installed upgrading Windows 7 on my computer and everything is fine.  However, when the system is idle and past in mode screensaver (with or without a password), the return of the screen saver mode are extremely slow (just a white screen).  It is sometimes quick, sometimes it comes back in 3-4 minutes, but most of the time it takes a long time.

    The system is a low end, but more than enough to manage w7.  It consist of:
    Pentium dual core (2140)
    2 gig memory
    NVIDIA 7300GT 256M

    I tried to delete the zone alarm security suite, does not solve the problem
    thought it was the HP 2610 print software, removed and still happens.
    update the bios (MSI p4m900)

    can someone figure this.  Is there something that prevents him to return to the desktop.

    Note that, I try to reboot from the blank screen by pressing the windows, right arrow, return.  But I think also, it does not address key strokes.


    I found a way to fix it! I did this:

    1. Press win + r and run msconfig. Go to tools and brand to troubleshoot the computer, and then click Start.

    2. then go to system and security and press electricityballance (not sure of the name in English because I have a Norwegian version..).

    3. restart your computer.

    4. my screen saver was not afterwards, but I gave it to display photos and now it works perfectly!

    When I checked the general tab afterwards, it did not have the checkbox to use the... start (a last..) one has been verified and the second has a blue full mark.
