Extremely slow start up

Posted by kyry (My Page) on
Sat, Apr 24, 10 at 12:21

I have a HP Pavilion dv4-1430us Entertainment Notebook, Intel duo core processor running Win 7 originally Vista but got the upgrade to 7 when it was released. Had this since September 09. I tried removing some of the bloated software it came with but just am never sure exactly what else could be removed. I hope it is ok that I did a HJT scan without being asked to but thought maybe one of you good people could look at it and tell me if there is anything that could be fixed to help out with a speedier start up. Once it is up and running it is quick. I don't use it as my main computer but am now forced to as the desktop is in for diagnostics and probably virus removal. Another question is (which is probably a dumb one) can I leave it plugged in and just close the lid with out shutting down and for how long? This is the only thing that saves me from going through the whole long start up problem. Appreciate any advice. And will get back to ravencajun with the results of my desktop problem.
Thanks
Carol

RE: Extremely slow start up

zep should be along soon and I am sure he can help you with your log, my old eyes made me give up on that these days.

as to can you just leave the laptop with the lid down yes since that puts it into hibernation you are fine doing that. It is a good idea to fully reboot any pc once a week or so to let everything reset and start fresh, sometimes programs hold on to memory even after you shut them down and at times that memory is not released and reallocated as it should be so when you reboot it takes care of things like that and lets you start fresh.
But there is no problem with one being in hibernation as long as it is responding properly when you bring it back up.
In some cases some people have had issues with hibernation and prefer not to use it, it is totally up to you and how your computer handles it.

Once it is up and running it is quick.

Good news there! Let me take a look. I see Norton Anti Virus off the bat. Do you know version it is?

RE: Extremely slow start up

It is Norton Internet Security 2009 version 16.8.0.41

Up grade.

Did you do the up-grade to Windows 7? or was it done by a tech so to speak.

RE re: Extremely slow start up

First off thank you Raven for the info.
I did the upgrading. Just followed the instructions and kept my fingers crossed. Did a backup first. Took about five cd's to do that.

RE: Extremely slow start up

I want to see the free space on the "c' Drive.

Look for the "Computer" in the start menu, use to be My Computer. Windows 7 refers to as "Computer" When you find it in the Start menu double click it, when it opens hold the mouse arrow over "Local Disk" "C" Drive. A little window will pop up, it's telling us how big the drive is and amount of free space.

Please provide that information.

When you're done close it, now this time Right click "Computer" choose Properties . Tell me how much RAM (Memory) is being reported.

Please provide that information as well

RE: Extremely slow start up

I personally no longer use ad-aware there are more substantial programs now like superantispyware which you have and definitely malwarebytes free, I would go with those 2 over ad-aware.
good to see you have spywareblaster also.

How do you like the slingbox? I am a little jealous.

definitely a couple of old java's in there, zep will probably tell you how to get rid of that and get the newest.

RE: Extremely slow start up

Have never used slingbox! Is that the one you can watch TV with? Not sure if I will but thought I would keep it just in case. I have kept Adaware only because after I run Superantispyware Adaware always seems to find more. But if the consensus is Malware bytes is better than I have no objection of getting rid of it.

Ad-Aware

Lets remove it for now, it will interfere with any fix in hijackthis if we do any, you can reinstall again if you want it.

RE: Extremely slow start up

Close all browser windows only have hijackthis open. Do A System Scan Only. Place a check mark in the following entries in bold make sure you get them all and no others.

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =

O23 - Service: Google Update Service (gupdate) (gupdate) - Google Inc. - C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Update\GoogleUpdate.exe

O23 - Service: HP Health Check Service - Hewlett-Packard - C:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett-Packard\HP Health Check\hphc_service.exe

Click Fixed Checked.

Close Hijackthis.

Reboot

* Service: HP Health Check Service , we are stopping that service 023------ it's really the only one I can see that might be an issue. It does not remove anything only stops the service from running.

**** All those (File Missing) are legit in a 64bit operating system the file is really there, Hijackthis has a difficult time listing services.

Let me know if there is any improvement....

The only other consideration would be Norton Anti Virus.

RE: Extremely slow start up

Followed your instructions. Checked the 3 you suggested,fixed checked Rebooted still about 3 min. to fully boot.

darn

Not sure what to tell you here. I don't see anything else..

Slow boot windows 7, I would Google that. More often then not it's a program or driver issue, while booting it's trying to load a driver or start up program, I just don't see it from here..

RE: Extremely slow start up

Zep, thank you so much for all you time and advise. I truly appreciate it.
Can I ask you about the log I posted at 14:41 particularly the double entries?

Why are there doubles?

RE: Extremely slow start up

I don't know.

But I will Google double entries in add remove.


 o
RE: Extremely slow start up

Did you upgrade to Win7 or do a fresh install? From what I've read, the latter is the better path.


 o
RE: Extremely slow start up

I upgraded. I just did what ever the instructions that came with the disc said.
Zep the only place they show as double is in the HJT log. Not in my add remove programs.

RE: Extremely slow start up

kyry,

The log posted at 14:41 is a list of your add / remove programs, generated from the hijackthis program. It's not the actual Hijackthis log. I always ask for the add / remove list along with the Hijackthis log.

* If you do not see double entries in your actual add / remove list on your computer, and only see them after Hijackthis generates the list then it's just a glitch with the Hijackthis generation of the list and not a worry. Is that the case?


 o
RE: Extremely slow start up

My suggestion, rather than working through log after log trying to identify what might be wrong, is to backup critical data and do a fresh install of Windows 7.


 o
RE: Extremely slow start up

Thank you Mike, but I was a wreck doing it the first time I am a wimp when it comes to this sort of thing. I would love to have a faster start up but maybe will just have to put up with the one I have rather than doing a fresh install. But I really do appreciate your responding to my post.

RE: Extremely slow start up

You know that Windows7 works with your machine. Just make sure you have any critical drivers handy before you start. It should be easy after that; stick in the disc and follow the prompts.

Just out of curiosity, is this a generic version of Windows7 or some kind of HP branded thing. IMHO the PC manufacturers like to add a bunch of stuff to "help" you but what I've found is that the marginal help it may provide is offset by loaded your machine with a bunch of crapola.


 o
RE: Extremely slow start up

Looks like you guessed right Mike. I just got the disc out and it is two disc. The first one HP Upgrade Manager (Insert this disc first). The second Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade Media ( For use only as an upgrade to a qualifying HP Windows 7 Upgrade option PC)
"Just make sure you have any critical drivers handy before you start."
Sorry don't know where the critical drivers might be. See now do you wonder why I would be hesitant about doing a clean install?

RE: Extremely slow start up

Hope you solved it.
