Computer running slow; lots of foreign addresses in Active Connections RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have some issues with my computer running super slow (1%) and have cleared out bunches of critical and error events; however I still have active connections with foreign addresses when I run netstats

    Could these be causing my computer to run so slow?  Need help, please!!

  • You could use the ‘NETSTAT –bo’ command which may require that you run CMD as an Admin. This should list not only the Process IDs, but also the Executables that are responsible for those active connections. I don’t think that even a sizable number of active connections would slow your machine down significantly, but that’s just my opinion.

    I would typically recommend running either CCleaner, or Glary Utilities, both of which are free and may address a number of issues with your computer.

    Best of luck!
