Windows 7 icons disappear/reappear Green Progress folder bar issues with slow performance. HELP!!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there, I hope someone can help me. This all started about a week ago. So I tried a fresh reinstall from my recovery disk. to no avail. Ok I have Home Premium 64bit and it seems my icons in my user folders and subfolders and the actual file icons are blank stand ard or missing. after a while they reappear to normal. the green progress bar in the explorer folders always lags and never fully completes. It hangs. Now I see that it takes 30 secs to get a program to open. Currently my control panel screen is blank and my connection between my ipod touch 5g and my desktop is very slow at data transfer. I'm going bonkers! The only things I altered was turning off WMM in my router, Installed a software someone gave me (only to find out it was a crack software) deleted that first! and used CCleaner to clean my registry

  • Hi,

    So a total reinstall didn’t fix the issue?
    We may take a try with the following article to make Windows a better performance.
    Optimize Windows for better performance
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-hk/windows/optimize-windows-better-performance#optimize-windows-better-performance=windows-7

    Then, please check to see if any new updates available, also the related drivers, make sure they are up-to-date.

    After that, if issue insists, please refer to the following article to run chkdsk command in CMD to check if there are disk issue.

  • Greetings and thanx for replying. I think I will have to go with the chkdsk fix with cmd as I have tried defragging, uninstalling unwanted/unused programs. I also have malwarebytes and avast to rid my pc of virus and avast is auto scheduled to run weekly. I don't know if this has anything to do with my sitch. but I do alot of modding of sys files and patching for customization purposes. third party software and stuff like that. And no the reinstall via recovery disk did not fix it. I shall try to use the chkdsk cmd parameter via the link you provided.

    Again much appreciated.
