Few days ago, Suddenly My Windows XP started operating very slow. I uninstalled some program such as : AVG PC TUNEUP to reduce the load on the system. I also checked my Task Manager for pointing out memory eating processes but found none. My CPU Usage was dribbling around 0% to 3%. But PFUsage was near 788MB. Then I started searching for virus. Scanned with AVG, Avast, Zemana, Hitman PRO, Antimalwarebytes several times.

When they didn't solve the problem I gave a repair installation of my system to see what happens. It fixed the problem. But started again after some moment. I gave the repair installation once again and its running smoothly now.

I did some search over net and found out this problem can be connected to my harddrive. I scanned my Harddrive with HDDScan, Crystal Disk Info. They both showed error for

1. Current pending errors count [ Num 197 - vlaue 200 - worst 200 - RAW(hex) 0000000000-000E - Thershold 000 ]

2. Uncountable errors count [ Num 198 - vlaue 200 - worst 200 - RAW(hex) 0000000000-000F - Thershold 000 ]

3. UltraDMA CRC errors [ Num 197 - vlaue 200 - worst 200 - RAW(hex) 0000000000-0002 - Thershold 000 ]

System Specification:
OS: Windows xp Professional
Processor : Intel Pentium® Dual Core
RAM : 2GB
Motherboard : Foxconn G41MX-F (2.0)
Harddisk : 298GB Western Digital WDC WD3200AAJS-00YZCA0 (SATA)

I want advise on what should I do now!

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 taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course): p22004369.gif

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot. You will see the following prompt:

p22004371.gif

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

p22004372.gif

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the p22004370.gif button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

I would look into your hard drive. I would copy needed files on to an external drive. Then press Windows and R at the same time. Type in cmd. Press enter and type in chkdsk /r . This may take a while.

My PC is running swiftly till now. But, I uninstalled Kemulator as you advised. It is a surprise though. I did scan my whole PC with AVG and avast many a time. None of them detected this as a virus.

Honestly I am worried about the health of my harddisk. I did another scan with WD data lifeguard diagnostics. The Quick Scan was not completed due to some kind of Read Sector Error. The Extended Scan ended with a popup saying My harddisk can be fixed but I'll lose all the data in bad sectors. So I need to backup first. That is the option I'm lacking right at this moment. Is there any way around it?

And my PC's file copy speed is very slow yet.

Very slow copying speed both external and internal! Not more than 900kb/s. Please Help!
I ran chkdsk, it showed some error and said to run with chkdsk/r. But backup is needed but that option is not available to me now.

As far as I am concerned it has nothing to do with malware or virus.

And I upgraded to the latest drivers.

Here is the copying speed in supercopier...

Do I really need to consider changing my harddrive? Or the chkdsk/r would fix it?

I've solicited more wisdom than I have and I think Captain Chicken is right...we need to focus on trying to move any valued files from current hard drive, in antricipation of not being able to do so at some point.

 

Topic moved back to XP.

Your hard drive is certainly showing the early signs of failure. The current SMART attributes that are cause for concern are pending sector count and Uncorrectable Sector Count. From your speccy report:

 

C5
Attribute name: Current Pending Sector Count
Real value: 14
Current: 200
Worst: 200
Threshold: 0
Raw Value: 000000000E - converted = 14
Status: Good
 
C6
Attribute name: Uncorrectable Sector Count
Real value: 15
Current: 200
Worst: 200
Threshold: 0
Raw Value: 000000000F - converted = 15
Status: Good
 
There were also read and write errors.
 
If you would like to read more about SMART status you can do that here, take note the attributes in pink are considered more important when it comes to failure rates.

 

Even though your SMART attributes are reporting status: good, drives with pending and uncorrectable blocks are considered much more likely to suddenly fail. Bad sectors or bad blocks can cause intermittent freezes, hangs, or crashes and will slow down the computer. It would be my recommendation to backup all data you can not afford to lose as a first step, then replace the drive and reload windows and software.

 

If you have no data on the drive you absolutely need, you may be able to run a diagnostic tool called MHDD to force the drive to scan and remap bad blocks (if there are not too many). I will post instructions below on how to run MHDD.

 

I would no longer consider this drive reliable, as I mentioned, the best option if you have the funds would be to replace the drive.

 

MHDD instructions:

 

If a hard drive has a smart status warning or the drive is questionable this test may be of use NOTE this test does not work with AHCI or Raid sata operation. It must be done with IDE, ATA, or compatibility mode:

 

Before running this test it would be a good idea to backup any data that you cannot afford to lose. This test uses the hard drive at 100%. If the drive is failing or has problems it is possible for the drive to fail suddenly especially during heavy use as this test will do. It is unlikely but still I recommend backing files up to be safe. Here are the instructions to run the test:

 

The first step will be to burn MHDD to a disc as an image (cd preferably). MHDD Can be found here: http://hddguru.com/software/2005.10.02-MHDD/  Click the Last version of MHDD, CDROM iso-image download and burn this file directly to a disc.

 

TO CHANGE SATA OPERATION: (You may need to use your keyboard arrow keys and enter key if you can not click to change settings).

After burning the disc, restart the laptop and start tapping f2 or f1 or delete right away to get into the bios. There you should see System Configuration, expand that by clicking the + button (or using your arrow keys and enter key). In that list there should be something called Sata operation. (Sata Operation may also be by itself in that first screen list)

Click on sata operation and take note of the current setting to the right it will probably be set to AHCI it will need to be switched back to this after MHDD is done running. Select ATA, compatibility or ide mode and then click apply. Save and exit the bios, or if apply was the only option you can use Ctrl+Alt+Delete to restart.

COMMON BOOT MENU/BIOS keys: https://support.fixmestick.com/hc/en-us/articles/201577043-How-to-get-to-your-Boot-Menu-or-your-BIOS-settings

 

Now with the burned disc in the drive after a restart, start tapping (F12 Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo), (F9 HP), or (Esc HP, Samsung, Sony) on the keyboard (or change your boot options to boot to cd/dvd first). This will bring up the boot options menu. Select cd/dvd/cd-rw drive and hit enter.

If this worked correctly and booted to mhdd you should see a screen that says Microsoft windows 98 startup menu. You can let the timer run out or just hit enter on option (2 . Start computer without SCSI support).

 

Next you should see a new screen with numbers, most of these will not have any device listed behind them but one number should for example on my dell computer number 6 has WDC WD1600BEVT-75A23T0… and at the end a number in white which is the size of the drive.

Example: If your drive is a 500gb I would expect that number in white to be somewhere around 500,107,862,016 or close to. Find the correct drive to test then on the keyboard type the number in front of the drive (in my case it was 6) and then hit enter.

 

Now you should have a screen with MHDD> and a blinking cursor.

Next hit F4 on the keyboard 2 times and this will start scanning the hard drive.

You should be able to see the computer start scanning, each block represents 255 sectors (130560 bytes) on the hard drive. What we are looking for will show up on the right side of the screen.

There is a list on the right which shows numbers:

<3

<10

<50

<150ms

Etc…

 

Anything below the <150ms is a slow sector or a problem sector. Slow sectors <500 or >500 will slow down the computer. If there are a lot of these one after another (several 1000 or more) the drive should probably be replaced. Also if you have any at the end that were marked as UNC this means the drive has uncorrectable errors and the hard drive should probably be replaced.

Basically if you have any sectors that are below <150 (green) let me know and if possible the total number of them.

 

If all of the sectors were ok and fell within the range of:

<3

<10

<50

<150ms

Then the hard drive is ok, if there are only a few that are slow <500 or >500 the hard drive should be ok to use.

 

NOTE: that if there are many slow sectors one after another or you start having error after error the drive is in bad shape and I recommend ending the test. If you have already backed up your data, you can let it run but it may take days or even weeks to finish. To end the test hit the Esc key.

 

After you are done testing you will need to go back into the bios by restarting the computer and tapping F2, F1, Delete (or whatever key gets you into bios). Go back to Sata Operation and change it back to the default which probably was AHCI.

Then restart and the computer should boot again.

(If you are getting a blue screen and the computer restarts go back into the bios and confirm that Sata Operation is set to what it was before changing it to IDE, ATA, or compatibility).

Thanks for the suggestions!

I am thinking of buying a WD 3TB harddisk. After I get it, I will try the MHDD first thing. Thanks again for all the help! :)

If you have data on the old drive that you need, back it up before running MHDD. If not, you can run the test and it will likely remap the bad blocks, that might make the drive usable again but I would not recommend storing anything of value on it. I have a few old drives with bad blocks which are being used as cache drives or scratch drives.

 

Occasionally if a drive becomes completely unresponsive, you can run MHDD to access the drive again. You may lose access to data which was stored in the remapped bad blocks, I would always recommend a few backup attempts before running any diagnostic tool.

Foxconn G41MX-F (2.0). This motherboard has a legacy BIOS. Your 3TB disk would need to be formatted as a GPT disk to access the full capacity. Your BIOS may or may not recognize the full capacity of the 3TB disk but the biggest issue is XP cannot boot from a GPT disk. 

 

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/dn640535(v=vs.85).aspx#gpt_faq_xp64_boot

 

Can Windows XP x64 read, write, and boot from GPT disks?

Windows XP x64 Edition can use GPT disks for data only.

 

Can the 32-bit version of Windows XP read, write, and boot from GPT disks?

No. The 32-bit version will see only the Protective MBR. The EE partition will not be mounted or otherwise exposed to application software.

You may be better off using a 2TB disk which is the maximum for a MBR formatted disk.

Great catch there.

 

Also side note (you may have heard this before): XP is no longer supported by Microsoft. This means that it may be open to vulnerabilities which Microsoft will not fix: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/14223/windows-xp-end-of-support

Thanks Again. :)

I will be sure of upgrading my motherboard and processor and to Windows 10 next month. Thank you guys for your generous concerns. :)
