Each time I try to open something new my computer acts like it's the most taxing thing it's ever seen. It took about a minute an a half to open this browser, same thing happens when I open anything, basically. Once I get programs open they run alright, maybe a little slow here and there, but every program doesn't want to open in a reasonable amount of time. It jut kinda acts like nothing happened for a long time then will finally open it.

 

I've run a few free malware/spyware(ioBit, Adaware) scans and they all say my computer is running fine. Sometimes it seems to help if I move the mouse or click around, kinda like the computer "forgets" that it's trying to open something until I prod it, and sometimes it seems as though it suspends everything I'm doing for a while, until it tries really hard to catch up and does everything at once.

 

Can anyone help or give me advice? Also what information do I need to know/where do can I find that info on my computer so I don't have to waste everyone's time asking where to find the info, haha.

 

Also if you happen to know anything about making League of Legends perform better, I'd love to hear any performance tips, but also something similar will end up happening here and there on LoL. I'll be mid game and it'll be running fine, then it'll temporarily freeze of drop to around 4fps, until everything happens really quickly to catch up. It seems to be completely random, there can be a lot of things going on on the screen, or almost nothing at all, and the latency bar usually says the internet connection is fine.

 

Thanks for any help!

Oh and it doesn't seem to matter if it's opening the program brand new, or if it's in the bottom right hand box with the already running programs, just trying to maximize the window gives it problems.

Advanced SystemCare 7 (Version: 7.2.1)

Driver Booster (Version: 1.3)

Game Booster 3 (Version: 3.5)

Smart Defrag 3 (Version: 3.1)

 

I would uninstall each of the above...followed by running the chkdsk /r command...followed by sfc /scannow comman d.

I also suggest that you remove each of the above from your scheduled tasks.

 

Then...see how the system runs.

I removed those and it seems to be running a little better, but still pretty bad. When I tried to do chkdsk /r in command prompt it said "Access denied as you do not have sufficient privileges. You have to invoke this utility in elevated mode" and when I tried sfc /scannow it said "You must be an administrator running a console session to use the sfc utility" This account is the administrator on the computer, and the only account. And I don't know how to remove scheduled tasks.

Recommendations:

- The Superfetch Service isn't running. Enable it.( unless you have installed a SSD)

- Memory usage is quite high (72%). Especially Skype uses A LOT OF memory (1.23 GB = ~ 30 % of total 4 GB). Install PcWinTech's CLEANMEM. It reduces memory usage and can collapse the filecache. Combined with enabling Superfetch it should increase overall system performance (dramatically). Even when playing games.

- Mother board temperature is also quite high. (76 C). Are there programs that use LOTS of CPU time ? (See Task Manager).

- Use e.g. Piriform's Ccleaner (tools, startup) to disable (not remove !!) as much programs as possible (e.g. HP programs) that are started upon start up. Ccleaner also can disable/remove tasks from Task Scheduler.

- Enable Windows Updates (once a month suffices). The latest security update seems to be from august 2013.

- Right click on the command prompt icon and choose "run as administrator". Then you should be able to run the "SFC .... " command.

- Did Ad-Aware disable the MS Firewall & Windows Defender Services ? Does your Ad-Aware software have a separate or build-in firewall ? When not, then enable the MS Firewall.

How to start an Elevated Command Prompt in Windows 7 and Vista - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic309198.html

 

The HELP portion of Win 7...probably has some info on "scheduled tasks" that may assist.
