I have a HP Pavillion dv9417ca Notebook PC with AMD Turion 64X2 Mobile Technology Tl-56, 2.0G Ram, NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 with Vista Ultimate 64-bit SP2.

The computer when running slowly makes a ton of noise starting up and running and tends to use more processing. The computer sometimes makes weird noises that aren't normal windows sounds and come from error's. Like intense beeping noises ocassionally. Firefox especially is insanely slow and the longer I run it the more processing power it uses up along with the plugins.exe. Sometimes it will uses so much that it completely freezes my computer. Lately I've also been having trouble starting the computer where it won't even load windows.

I've ran Ccleaner daily and Malwarebytes weekly and find nothing and the problem has been getting progressively worse. I have Avast which updates daily.

First thing I would like to do is to see if we can check the operating system as this may be causing these problems.

Let's try a clean boot. This will boot the system without any services or startup programs and that will eliminate or pinpoint the main problem.

1. Click Start, type msconfig in the Start Search box, and then press Enter. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.

2. On the General tab, click Selective Startup.

3. Under Selective Startup, click to clear the Load Startup Items check box.

4. Click the Services tab, click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box, and then click Disable All.

5. Click Apply and OK.

6. When you are prompted, click Restart.

7. After the computer starts let me know how the system ran.

The system started a little quicker than normal. The one time in the past I had trouble getting into windows was when I was attempting to run a boot scan through Avast. It took 3 times before it finally started properly(I had to manually shut down the computer by holding down the power button) and then it ran the scan and found nothing.

There was also a few other times that that it didn't start properly and I had to do the power button thing, but it had nothing to do with Avast.

Anyways this time it started fine.

So, without the startup programs and services it starts fine. How did Firefox run under the clean boot?

Firefox still runs slow and maxes out my computer's ability to do anything.

It might be worth testing to see if an add-on is causing this problem.

Here's a good tutorial which covers it pretty well

That's one of the things I've tested on my own. I don't have a ton of add-ons and the ones I do have help keep my computer safe such as Ad-Blocker.

I know that add-ons are, in the main, helpful but if one of them is faulting it can slow down the browser. So did you do the check to see whether there's a problem with one of them?

I still think these problems don't relate to malware.

Hi,

I have not had a reply from you for 3 days. Can you please tell me if you still need help with your computer as I am unable to help other members with their problems while I have your topic still open. The time taken between posts can also change the situation with your PC making it more difficult to help you.

If you like you can PM me.

Thanks,


m0le
