I am on a Dell Windows 10 operating system.

I use google chrome for my web browser.

I have MBAM and Avast free for my protection.

I run ADWare cleaner, JRT, and TFC weekly to bi weekly.

I also run X3 watch and anti-logger free.

 

My computer has been running slower and slower for the past three of four weeks. I've ran all of the above, and have rebooted my modem, my router, and my extender several times. Today it became super slow. I checked MBAM reports and saw many that stated blocked outbound traffic. Of course, like a noob I deleted the report before I realized I needed to check on here.

I just ran MBAM and it came back clean I also just ran avast and it says my TPLink router is using a default or weak password, but I thought I had changed it. 

 

I need my computer for online school. Right now I can access my classes no problem, but I start a speech class wednesday and I have to video record (with this computer) and then condense and upload the files. 

I appreciate your help with my computer.

Check your download speed against what you are paying for at Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test

 

Block Third Party cookies from installing. Those are the ad and tracking cookies and one or more may be calling home.

How to disable third-party cookies in all major web browsers

 

Do you have an ad blocker installed in your browsers?

 

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

 

Post the three lists mentioned below using CCleaner.

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Startups. On that page you will see a list of Windows Startups and at the top tabs for each browser and Scheduled Tasks.

At the bottom right of that page you will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste the list of Windows Startups and Scheduled Tasks into your next

post. Please do that.

 

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Uninstall. On that page you will see a list of programs installed on your computer and at the bottom right of that page you

will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste that list in your next post. Please do that.

Yeah it seems a lot faster now.

However, is there a faster alternative to the X3 watch that is still free?

Thanks.

I don't know if X3 was the problem or one of the problems. Do you use it as a parental control? You can reenable it

to see if it causes slowness. Use CCleaner and click on enable. You may have to reboot after.

If you haven't done this....click on the ABP icon and choose Filter Preferences. Then UNcheck the box next to Allow some non-intrusive advertisements.

 

Adding RAM...memory...to your computer will help with increasing speed. You can check to see if that is possible for your computer at

Crucial US | DRAM, Solid State Drive (SSD) & Memory Upgrades  Use the Crucial Advisory Tool.

 

Using CCleaner often will help, too. Especially with Google Chrome.

Yeah, I use x3 as a parental control and it does contribute to slowness.

It is actually a lot faster without it.

ABP is uncheckd.

I will check on crucial after work.

Thanks BC

Windows has a parental control program. You can look into using it if you haven't done that.

 

There is another popular one that gets mentioned a lot...K9 Web Protection - Free Internet Filtering and Parental Controls Software

I have no need for one so I can't give a personal recommendation. Keep in mind that it is easy to circumvent parental controls. One

way is to use a Linux Live OS installed on a flash drive, CD, DVD or other removable medium.
