Greetings to all! I have been experiencing lag when I browse the internet or when playing online games. My computer is relatively new as I bought it about a year back. I have started experiencing lag about a few weeks ago here are my computer specs >>>>SPECS<<<<
I have already cleared infections from the am i infected section so guess im clean. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Try removing/uninstalling...your "tuneup" application, followed by running the chkdsk /r command.

Hi DoomsDayZz,

(FWIW): I noticed in post #4 in your malware topic that Malwarebytes Anti_Malware found instances of Trojan.Agent and numerous instances of Pup.Funshion but "No action was taken." If that was an oversite, you might want to run Malwarebytes again, update, full scan, and make sure that all entries you wish to delete are checked before clicking Remove.


How to view Check Disk log in Vista/Windows 7
  • In the search box type "Event" and click on "Event Viewer" in top column.
  • Click on "Windows Logs" -->"Application." Click the "Source" tab ( top, right) to alphabetize that column.
  • Arrow down to "Winlogon" and select the most recent Check Disk report.
  • Double click on it and select the "Copy" button. This will copy the report to the clipboard.

Regards,
Brooks

Hello Artrooks, the pup.funshion is nothing but i deleted it anyway. I did another scan with spybot and its clean. No difference in performance thou.
For the check disk log, i didn't find any. Only some random ones that i dun understand lol.

Is the computer connected directly to the modem? Is there a router involved and if so is it wired to the router or a wireless connection?

If a wireless connection are there other computers that connect to the network, and if there are do they run slow?

Thank you for that information. That would rule out a router issue if you don't have a router.

If you play game more offen then you should use CCleaner(Free)to clean it everyday .
Also, assume you have not got infected , I suggest you upgrade your ram at least to 8GB for 64Bit OS .

{BTW , next time don't set "Auto update" I always set it in "Check but let me install....!!" }

Yeah i do use ccleaner but nothings improving thou /:
don't think the 8 gigs would help as well. i tried using 2 piece of 4gb ram on this computer and it only gave slight or unnoticeable difference.
so i don't really know what to do right now heh.

Check the Virtual Memory (paging file delegation) in advanced system settings. To do this,

1)right click on "my computer"
2)click "properties"
3) then click on the "advanced system settings" button on the left pane.
4) Then click on the "advanced" tab at the top
5) click "settings" under performance.
6)Click the "advanced" tab again at the top of the new window that appears
7) click "change" under "virtual memory" (I attached a screen shot so you can verify that you are at the right place)

-Verify that "Automatically manage paging file size for all drive" is not checked off and that "custom size" under the window is checked off.

-Depending on how much RAM you have in the computer, will generate the "minimum allowed", "recommended", and "currently allocated" numbers.

-Set yours based on the numbers i have in mine. If the recommended is say 3000MB, set the initial size to 2700 and the max size to 3200. Set the two as before and after the recommended, so your computer can manage it accordingly between these two values if needed. My PC is recommended at 4606 MB. So i have my initial size set at 4300 MB, and i have my max size set at 4900MB.

After you set the two values,

1) click ok
2)Your computer will prompt you for reboot, click ok to reboot.

-When you computer boots up it will use these two new values to allocate data into virtual memory to allow for more data processing between the HDD and RAM.

NOTE: *Setting these values to low or two high can cause system instability*

*Please* Comment back if you have any questions. i tried to be as specific here as i could. This should allow you to definitely notice an increase in speed.

I also have other ways to increase system performance. This is step #1 for me.

Make sure that your drivers for your NIC are up-to-date.
You could also try calling your ISP depending on the lag issues: if they are at a certain time of day, etc.

As far as gaming goes, you can try defragmenting your hard drive or updating your video card drivers.
Other than that, it's possible your Ethernet cable may be going bad or may need a new image installed.
