I have a Presario CQ56 running Windows 7 Home Premium with a Celeron Dual core T3500 processor and 2GB RAM.  Every morning, whether it has been off or in hibernation it runs very slowly on all programs for about ¾ hour.  Sometimes programs show the “not responding” message.  The hard disk is running the whole of that time, and Avast free antivirus is active intermittently.  Once that is finished, the computer runs quite well for the rest of the day.  This has been happening for three or four months at least. 

B efiore thenI was eventually able to get rid of Spigot after consulting BC forums.  I have run Malwarebytes, Adw cleaner, scandisk/checkdisk and defrag and found everything OK.  I’ve culled the Start program.  Most recently I updated to Chrome 41.  All this has improved the general speed in browsing.

But it leaves me with that very slow period at the start of every day.  I would appreciate any advice.

Let's take a look...a system with 2GB RAM running Win 7...well, that's not a lot of resource power.

 

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

Logically...I would look at scheduled tasks as a possible cause...along with RAM usage.  You only have 2GBs installed, it would not take much to slow the system, IMO.
 
Although it looks to me as if the system may overheat at times...that's counter-intuitive to when the system first runs.  Overheating should come later, if it comes at all, IMO.

I don't see any real clues, other than possibly the two items above.  You have a ton of Bonjour errors so it would not hurt to just uninstall that app and see if there is an effect.

Thanks Louis.  

 

I agree re scheduled tasks.  I'm not sure of the significance of "the two items above".

 

I have uninstalled Bonjour (never use it).  I'll have to wait till tomorrow morning's logon to see whether it helps.  For some reason I've always wondered if the early slow-down is tied up with Chrome, but that's probably because I start it first up to look at the daily papers, Facebook etc.

 

I guess the RAM is a bit light on, but other than that early slow-down, it jogs along quite adequately for my fairly modest needs.

 

Many thanks

 

Bren

- Open "Task Manager" & "Resource Monitor" (Drive tab) upon start up and see which process(es) use the most CPU time & write the most data to/from disk in the 1st 45 minutes. That already could give a good clue of what's going on.

- My experiences with the latest versions of AVAST are not "too positive". Disable AVAST and restart your system. Does it make a difference ? Does your AVAST come with a Firewall and is it running ? If so, then disable either the MS Firewall or the AVAST firewall.

- There could be a conflict between Super Anti Spyware & Windows Defender

- Memoy usage is indeed very high. Install PcWinTech's Cleanmem and let the program clean the File cache as well. It reduces memory usage every 15 minutes.

- My personal opinion is that Win 7 can be run with 2 GB but it's better to have - at least - 4 GB (especially when one is using Chrome) and your (64 bit) system still has a free slot for an additional memory module.

Louis

 

When I logged on this morning I let it sit for a while and didn't open Chrome.  The 'slow routine' started after 25 mins or so, but only lasted about 10 mins.  So perhaps Bonjour had something to do with it.  I'll see what tomorrow brings.  But if we've got it down to 10 mins, I can live with that.  Originally I'd

wondered if I was being used as a bot.

 

Thanks Willy22.  I'll have a look at these suggestions later today.

 

Many thanks

I've installed PcWinTech's Cleanmem.  I can see Win 7 certainly does tax 2GB at times but I can live with that.  I'm learning to use Process Explorer.  So far my guess is the early morning slow-down is partly Google and Win Defender updating.  It seems to average 10 mins now, so the work around is probably log on and have a coffee.

 

I didn't fully understand your earlier comments as follows:

Is there anything I can/should do about them?

I always turn off auto updating, it make a tremendous difference.  You will still be notified by a pop up applet or when you access the related programs so you will not miss any.


If you don't stand for the flag then you will fall for anything!

- "Svchost.exe" peak memory usage of 1 GB points to trouble with one or more Services.

- AVAST free doesn't have a firewall. Should have seen that before.

 

- If you have experience with Task Scheduler then open and see if there's a task that is delayed for 25 minutes.

- Use Ccleaner (tools >> Start Up) to disable (NOT remove !!!) everything one by one that is started by Task Scheduler and time restart your system. It gives you clue whether or not if one those tasks is causing that mysterious delay.

- Perhaps the HTC software interferes with one or more pieces of the Apple software ?

I'd uninstalled Bonjour which helped a lot.  Now I've disabled auto update on Chrome and that has just about done the trick.  I'm learning up on Process Explorer to try and nail down what uses up RAM in the morning.  I'll work through the other tips you've given too.   So, all good!

 

Thanks everyone for your help, esp Louis for starting the ball rolling.  Have a good Easter.
