Hello,

I have posted on here before with my Dell Dimension 3000. I have been having a general slowdown that I believe is NOT malware related, but then again with the sophistication of the malware writers, who knows? Anyways, I had/have run multiple times all the antivirus online and system scans possible, both from a safe mode and regular mode, as well as running some of the stand alone boot scans from a cd and nothing was found.

 What has happened is that everything was fine until I had about 700 MB left on my original 80gb hard drive. Things took a turn for the slower after I started recieving low disk space warnings. With the price of HD's being low I decided to upgrade to a 150gb drive and clone the old one figuring this would solve the problem, which it has not.

 Whenever I try to open and explore my file directory, it takes forever, as well as booting up in the morning. IE, Firefox, and MSSE also seem to peg the cpu at whatever they can steal like 98% if one or the other frees up otherwise they alternate between about 87% between them. The slowness is caused by the cpu running at 100% most all the time, or at least when I execute a program. I am talking a slow factor of minutes, not seconds....Please help...Could there be some setting that needs to be reset to recognise the new and larger hard drive by the OS?

Thank you, I used the Drive Wire hardware by Apricorn, with the Easy Gig IV software.... Everything else seems to work OK even my registered software.

I think that you misunderstood my question.

 

Windows is known to malfunction if there is insufficient free space on the Windows partition.  If you installed the software for accomplishing the clone...on the system with insufficient space...I would not be surprised if the product of such had problems.

 

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.

 

Checkmark the following checkboxes:

  List last 10 Event Viewer log

  List Installed Programs

  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.

 

Click Go and paste the content into your next post.

 

Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic323892.html/page__p__1797792#entry1797792 , taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

 C:\Program Files\eBoostr\eBoostrCP.exe

 

I suggest that you uninstall this program.

 

PretonSaver\PretonClient.exe

 

DiskTrix\SystemBooster2\SystemBooster.exe...no longer supported by developer or available at website.  Cracked versions abound, implicit with risk of malware.

 

RIP Listener Service is running, but is not a typical default service, see http://www.blackviper.com/windows-services/rip-listener/ .

 

You have a stopped service, PXVINN, that I can't find any info on.

 

I'm not proficient enough to analyze your SMART data from the hard drive...but I suggest running the SeaTools For DOS diangostic on it.

I would also run chkdsk /r on the Windows partition...after the hard drive diagnostic completes.

Hello Louis,

I will download and run the extensive test from DOS using the seatools application.

I have paid for and downloaded the 3 programs in question, direct from the companies so even though they are old, they should be safe.

Eboostr is like ready boost for vista and win7....with my usb3.0, I really DO get a performance boost when opening and closing files. I would be willing to disable it for test purposes though, but It worked fine b4.

Preton is an ink saving program for my ink hungry printer.

and I have been using the disk trix system booster since they developed it..... it too seemed to help till the great slowdown.

 

Now, the interesting program you mentioned is the PXVINN service....I searched for it using process hacker and tracked down the folder it was supposed to be in, but I cannot find the executable or sys file for it.

It was supposed to be located in the c:\Documents and Settings\Rudy|Local Settings\Temp folder... I also noticed that under the properties that it has a password and is it's own interactive process whatever that means.

 I will let you know the outcome of the disk test. BTW, I already have run chkdsk /r as well as sfc/scannow on this computer

Hello Louis,

Sorry this took so long. I ran the programs you requested and they came back with PASS (in the case of seatools) and no errors in the case of chkdsk. So my drive seems to be good.

  Now, what about all those sysem errors that are being generated? What in the heck does it mean that Windows cannot unload the registry due to insufficent system resources?

That seems bad....but what do I know :-)

<<What in the heck does it mean that Windows cannot unload the registry due to insufficent system resources?>>

 

I see no previous mention of this error.  In any case, that message can mean a number of things, but I would take it to mean that you don't have enough RAM to accomplish whatever it was that you were trying to do.  2GB is sufficient in given circumstances...but if your RAM is tied up doing other things and you add the straw that tips the scales...this message could result, as I understand it.

 

Which is why I suggested uninstalling the various programs mentioned previously.  You have a number of programs installed that I don't believe are worth the time of day...but it's your system and you installed them.  But I don't believe that 2GB of RAM can handle all the activity that may be present at a given point in time.

 

Every program that you have installed...which promises to make your system "run faster/better" is a hoax.  In reality, the result is what you get...one more program draining system resources, slowing the system down, preventing it from functioning normally.  Take a look at your installed program list per MiniToolbox...you seem to be quite the patron of sites like Softpedia.  Well...all your installs via such sites...they just increase the load which the system tries to bear.

 

My recommendation would be to either unload the junk (e.g., all registry cleaners, all optimizers, anything that purports to do anything with the registry)...then see how the system runs. 

 

From your initial post:  " What has happened is that everything was fine until I had about 700 MB left on my original 80gb hard drive." 

 

I find that rather hard to believe as I scroll down the list of programs you currently have installed.  I suspect there were probably more when your troubles began, but you opted to remove some of the more dubious ones.

 

In any case, that's the best advice I can give you.  I don't believe that increasing the RAM installed would ameliorate your issues...some of the items you have installed are just junk, IMO...they will unnecessarily use system resources.

OK... Got the message Louis. I will work on uninstalling the several programs I had downloaded to try and resolve this. If everything else seems good, then I suppose we are done with this machine. It is what it is. I just cannot understand why it slowed down when the hard drive got filled up. I surely thought it would improve once I installed the larger drive.

Thanks again.
