Hi. . .
Excellent job on getting me the AutoRuns ARN file -- perfect!
However, I was hoping to find a ton of start-up entries that would be responsible for the slowness of your computer, but no such luck. You hardly have any start-up entries.
Two items to change in AutoRuns. Bring up AutoRuns again --- RIGHT-click on autoruns.exe
, select "Run as Administrator". Give it a minute to scan the Registry.
Click on the logon
tab at the top. Un-check the last two entries - "Windows Mail". After-unchecking the entries, close autoruns.
What you just did was to prevent Windows Mail from starting up automatically. It's still there if you need it.
The next step is to get to CVS and get those CD-R CDs. After seeing AutoRuns, it is now more important than ever to run the hard drive and RAM diagnostics so that we can [hopefully] rule them out as possible contributors to your slow system.
Is the system still slow?
If so, exactly what are you comparing it to - to deem it as being "slow"?
I am trying to learn more about your CPU -
System Model: OptiPlex 780
System Type: x64-based PC
Processor(s): 1 Processor(s) Installed.
: Intel64 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10 GenuineIntel ~1583 Mhz
BIOS Version: Dell Inc. A15, 8/6/2013
You have 4 GB RAM and probably need more. We can tell this by the amount of virtual memory you are/have used:
The above tells me that you have 4 GB RAM
- Windows was installed (or the page file was reallocated) on February 14, 2017
- Current virtual memory usage = 498 MB (measured at the time the Sysnative/jcgriff2 app was running)
- Peak virtual memory usage = 917 MB (measured since last system re-boot)
Virtual memory is invoked when you run out of RAM. So, you exceeded the amount of installed physical RAM (4196 MB or 4 GB) at some point since your last reboot and Windows found it necessary to utilize 917 MB of virtual memory to make up for the lack of RAM. Currently, Windows requires 498 of virtual memory. This would definitely slow your system way down.
Virtual memory utilizes the page file on the hard drive and acts like RAM. However, the difference in speed between RAM and virtual memory is like comparing the speed of light (RAM) with the speed of sound (virtual memory). RAM is like lightening; virtual memory, using the hard drive with moving parts, runs very slowly. Like day and night.
The option open to you here is to purchase new RAM - maybe increase your current 4 GB to 6GB or even 8 GB. You would definitely notice a considerable improvement in speed by increasing RAM.
To get an idea of cost, run the Crucial RAM scanner - http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/systemscanner?gclid=Cj0KCQiA9_LRBRDZARIsAAcLXjfjRRIpQBtbHXAykL0NJrRGENsNBTT41Wi7K1Mm6EG2EX7b7Wfw01UaAj73EALw_wcB&ef_id=WaDl2QAAALuRQzCs:20171223045337:s
Click on link; check the box in #2; click on "download the scanner". It will take a few minutes to run.
What is the max RAM that your system can handle? How many RAM slots?
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7500 @ 2.93GHz, 2933 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)
You have an Intel Core2Duo CPU, which is a decent CPU.
Please get the CD-Rs!
