ok, so same type issue as previous but mainly if I am on facebook. A little slow loading other webpages as well on occasion. 68 gb free of 105 on the harddrive ad 1gb of ram running Win7. Don't really use it for much other than surfing the web and email so really not looking to replace it so any suggestions?

RE: Laptop gets sluggish mainly with FB

Lets check for more with another tool

Download and run Junkware Removal Tool, link below.

Please download http://thisisudax.org/downloads/JRT.exe to your desktop. Link below too. Click the link save the file to desktop.

1 Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.

2 Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator" the tool will open and start scanning your system.

3 Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.

4 On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.

5 Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.

RE: Laptop gets sluggish mainly with FB

That's why I wanted you to

"Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts."

Turn off real time protection MSE,
SEE LINK on how to do that, then we will turn it back on after we are done

OK.

RE: Laptop gets sluggish mainly with FB

Totally aside from the other advice you've gotten here, I'm a little troubled by your running Win7 on just 1GB of RAM. That is the bare minimum you need to run the 32-bit version, and at that level you can't expect optimal performance. You're supposed to have a minimum of 2GB to run the 64-bit version. You should be able to add some RAM to your system and that should speed things up quite a bit. I suggest you go to crucial.com or kingston.com and plug in your specs to see how much RAM you can add to your system. This could be a cheap way to improve your computer's performance


 o
RE: Laptop gets sluggish mainly with FB

Hi millworkman & kudzu9,

Kudzu9 is correct, so after we finish Tomorrow I suggest you also visit the crucial site and consider adding more RAM (Memory) to the computer.

Thanks guys, I will put that on my list to do as well.

RE: Laptop gets sluggish mainly with FB

How's the computer running? The log looks good. If you do not use these,

1. Bing Bar
2. Bing Desktop

You could uninstall them from the Start>control Panel>Programs & Features list. The Bing Desktop is running at start up.

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [uTorrent] "C:\Program Files\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe" /MINIMIZED

Are you using the utorrent program?

RE: Laptop gets sluggish mainly with FB

not to my knowledge, running ok little sluggish still on occasion but probably due to the ram or lack there of.

RE: Laptop gets sluggish mainly with FB

Right! I would add more ram. Remove the Bing entries and post a fresh Hijackthis log.

RE: Laptop gets sluggish mainly with FB

Ultimate with 1gb, that's the minimum.
I saw one the other day .. was asked to speed it up. It had some virus but also while there I changed the paging file back to default. Somebody made it huge huge.

And unchecked all the gingerbread that eats up too much memory, every one of those things was checked !!! ... the slide in windows,, that fade in the sunlight... with the animated drapes, this and that's. Was told whatever I had done, really made her computer so fast ... heheh

Click Fix Checked.
Close Hijackthis.
Reboot the computer.

We are not removing anything, these programs can be accessed from the program itself and do not need to start up at boot time.

Also Please remove the programs we downloaded, on AdwCleaner double click the program icon and choose Uninstall

On the Junk removal tool (JRT) Right click on the desktop icon and delete it.

Please delete any log files that were left on the desktop.

Empty the recycle bin.

That should do it.

He is talking about the page file, you can read about here at the link provided, there talking about disabling it, but there is other information there too, tells you how to view it, in my opinion I would let windows manage the page file for you. I think it's also important that you add more ram to the computer First before making any adjustments and see how the computer functions then.
