Slow performance. RRS feed

  • Question

  • A few weeks ago my computer was doing great and now it seems much slower. I was loading windows 7 in less than 10 seconds and now its up to a couple minutes. Loading windows takes longer, loading programs like firefox takes longer, and all games lag much more than they used to. I am at a loss as to what to do.

    So the boot performance is bad?

    Make sure you have the service Superfetch running and next try to speed up the boot with the help of my guide [1]. This trains the advanced prefetcher in Windows 7. This increase the boot performance a lot. All other tweaking tools are useless. Only use this method with this Microsoft Toolkit.

    If this doesn't speed up the boot process, follow my guide [2] to make a boot trace and compress the boot_BASE+CSWITCH+DRIVERS+POWER_1.etl as 7z or RAR and upload it to your Skydrive [3] and post the link here.

    I take a look at the trace, maybe I see what's wrong with your Windows.

  • Have you tried running any malware programs? Malwarebytes is a good program. I'd install and run it in safe mode. I always turn off system restore when running any virus or malware programs. Then turn it back on after.
