I purchased a new computer with Windows 8 and I hate it. Programs load very slow, just about everything runs high CPU or memory usage. I have Norton's 360 for Security. I have checked repeatedly for malware, etc. I do not understand why it is so slow. Any suggestions? I would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks, firelady :unsure:

Hello firelady.

I had a similar feeling as you, but my Windows 8 starts quickly and never has caused a problem.

Save each program to Desktop and Copy and Paste any logs produces.

 

Please post a snapshot with Speccy for more system details -
How to Publish a snapshot with Speccy <<-- Full Directions Here (only Copy / Paste the link)

 

 

Download Screen317 Security Check from Here or Here and save it to your Desktop.

  • Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
  • Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt
  • Please Copy/Paste the contents of that document.

Note 1:: If any security program requests permission to access the Internet, allow it to
Note 2. If you receive UNSUPPORTED OPERATING SYSTEM! ABORTED! message, (or similar) restart computer and Security Check should run

 

 

 

Please download MiniToolBox to desktop to run it.
 Checkmark the following boxes:

  • List content of Hosts
  • Flush DNS
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size

 Click Go and Copy / Paste the result. (result.txt)

 

 

And then a quick clean / check => Please download RKill by Grinler to your desktop

  • If you have an old version, please delete it first
  • Right click on the new Red icon and select Run as Administrator
  • A black DOS box will appear for a short time and then disappear.
  • This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
  • At most the tool will usually run for about 2 minutes
  • Please Copy and Paste the small log back here.

Do not reboot your computer until you complete the next step.

Now :

  • Download AdwCleaner by Xplode from Here or Here and save to your Desktop.
  • Double-click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
     * Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click on the Scan button (only once)
  • AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Report button.
  • A report (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open in Notepad for your review.
  • Check the listed removals and see if you are OK with them.
  • If you have questions, post the Report log back here.
     Next
  • Click on the Clean button only once for accuracy
  • Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
  • Press OK finally to allow AdwCleaner to Restart the computer and complete the removal process.
  • After rebooting, a log report (AdwCleaner[S0].txt) will open automatically.
  • **Copy and Paste the contents of that log in your next reply.**
  • NOTE : To restore an item that has been deleted by accident : Open the program again,
  • Go to Tools (top left) > Quarantine Manager > check what you want restored > now click on Restore.

 

Finally - Please download Temp File Cleaner by Old Timer to empty unwanted Temporary Files
Usage Instructions:

  • .Download TFC from the download link above and save the file on your desktop.
  • Close ALL running applications as TFC will terminate them before attempting to clean up the temporary files.
  • Double-click on the TFC icon.
  • When the program opens, click on the Start button.  TFC will terminate the Explorer process and all running applications and then begin the process of cleaning out all of your temp folders.
  • When done, press OK > Exit, and reboot your computer and finish the cleanup

Note: After removing temp files, the computer may show to be slow than usual, but it will improve once the cache is rebuild.

 

 

Thank You -
