Spysweeper could be the problem, as it may be checking over the system before the pc is allowed to run, also if you have got more than one antivirus if any (hope you have!) or spyware programmes, they all use up system resources reducing your memory and processor speed, check what you have installed.

Remember, some trojans cannot be found by some lower end anti virus programmes, and can only be found by decent spyware programmes.

Also if possible run any antivirus and spyware programme in safe mode, to allow you to run it faster (F8 on boot up and choose safe mode)

Slow boot HP Pavilion zv6131us


Eric,

There are a lot of factors that can be a cause to slow boot up times. Sometimes it is a lengthy process to figure out what or why the boot time takes so long.

In Windows XP the first step that I would perform is to click on Start>Run and then type: "msconfig" and click OK. (Don't put in the " marks.)

Once you are in the System Configuration Tool, click the Startup tab. Disable all of the items in that list. Then click the Services tab. Check the Box for "Hide all Microsoft Services" and then disable all.

After clicking "OK" you will be prompted to reboot the computer. Do so. Time the boot/startup time. If it has significantly improved, then half of the troubleshooting is done. Next, you will need to go back into MSCONFIG and go to the services tab and enable a few of the services. Then apply and reboot. Make sure to write down which services you've re-enabled and make sure to time your bootup.

Through the process of elimination, you should be able to find out which service is slowing the system down. If you have rechecked all of the services and the system is still booting with an acceptable speed, then begin checking the startup items. Do the same process of checking just a few items at a time, writing down which ones you are checking. After rechecking just a few, apply and reboot, timing the boot up time.

Through this process you should be able to find the services or startup items that are slowing your computer down. Once the offending services or startup items are identified, you will need to make a decision of whether to leave that item out of the startup process or possibly reinstall that program.

If you find the offending item, and are unable to identify it by name, you can always go to Google and type that item's name into the Google search and it may give you an indication for what that startup item is, or what it is part of.

Sometimes, if you have a virus or malware, you may find the items listed in startup. If you do find a suspicious item, then you will need to make sure to run a full malware scan to remove any of those items that are unwanted.


Hope this has helped steer in the right direction to find out why your computer is running so slowly!

My HP laptop (Pavilion) is running very slow. I'm afraid to download the ''TV Specials'' we see advertised. Thx, Ray


download 'ccleaner' from filehippo.com & run it & remember when u run it, only check the temporary files,recycle bin,recent documents....
this might speed up ur notebook...
If you are using XP or Vista, you have this. You can access the boot menu by loading your MSCONFIG. During the boot up your computer issues a time out to find new hardware and software. You can short this time to boost your startup speed.
1. Open your Start menu.
2. Click Run
3. In the command screen type msconfig
4. In the system configuration utility, click either BOOT tab.
5. In the boot menu, change the default setting for Time Out from 30 to 5 seconds.

My computer is really slow, and i cant uninstall certain programs


Hello
To format you need your windows os cd.Boot from the win cd and follow the prompts.

You may try to going to start then run then type regedit in box.

Once in the registry go to h key local software and find the programs you want to delete,then delete them.

IF your not familar with the registry editor then do not do this.

Google the OPHCrack Live Cd on another computer. download the cd image and then burn this cd. boot it on your laptop... this can take a while.... after it fully boots(which can take up to 30 minutes) it will display all windows passwords in the program window in the top let corner of the screen.... If your first boot off of the cd fails then choose a different video mode in the startup menu....

HP Pavilion Slow boot up


Well, that's absolutely abnormal. Generally the problem can be caused by many many reasons such as outdated hardware, overload startup programs, corrupt registry issues, too many junks, virus attack, poor security software taking too much system resources, remnants of uninstalled applications etc. The fact is, you should keep some system maintenance job regularly. If you don't want to do these manually, try the hp speed up tool http://www.speeduphp.com/ to give a free & full scan of your slow HP PC to find & fix all possible issues. Regards!
