Slow system and errors

Hi, I did a full system restore but now my laptop is running VERY slowly, also when I try and install anything I get an error message eventually which reads 'The dependency service or group failed to start'. I have started the machine in Safe Mode and ran Msconfig and disabled services that are not essential and that does not seem to make any difference. Any ideas.

Try normal startup from msconfig of course Task Manager will give you some indication as to what running task/process is using much or most of the computers resource. Why did you do a Sys Restore? Anyway here is some info that might be useful to your problem... http://forums.techguy.org/networking/1069085-dependency-service-group-failed-start.html cheers.

If you have existing malware or virus threats on your machine that will stop AVG installing correctly.
If you are installing AVG with Vista there is a KB file that must be installed before you can install AVG, AVG will warn you and supply you with a download link to get the Microsoft KB file.

Download and run Malwarebytes before atempting the AVG install.
You can download Malwarebytes here for free:

SOURCE: AVG Free install fails

I had similar problems with AVG, and switched to AVAST home edition (free). www.download.com has avast home and all you have to do is supply them with your email address so they can send you the yearly registration key. Avast handles maleware as well as virus protection. Avast automatically updates and supplies the customer with quality maleware / virus protection at no cost to the consumer. No I do not work for Avast. I'm a medically retired technician. Download the program and install it, the problem with AVG goes away! The real problem I believe has something to do with the SP 1, 2. 3, (or all of them) and it stops AVG from reinstalling. Note the Avast home is free for home use, not business use. They do have a professional program that costs you to use, just like AVG.

I have a Toshiba satelite laptop that runs slow and says that it is neary full. I need to free some some space but do not know what to delete. Everything on it seams to relate to microsoft.


You may have installed every softwares on your System Drive (typically C:/, where the OS is installed). Try to install them on other partitions, this will free up some spaces.



You may try with Disk Cleanup utility. To use it go to: Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> Disk CleanUp. This will ask you which of the disk to be cleaned up. Select the desired System Drive Letter and click on OK. You may delete Windows Error reporting files, System error memory dump files from there. You can also delete older restore points by clicking on Clean Up System Files. Select System drive letter as before and click on more options. Under System Restore and shadow copies click clean up. This will remove all but the latest restore point.



Hope this helps, Mrityunjay

Not loading when does it does its slow like slow 30min toload


Hi

Try this solution.

Restart your computer and press F8 to run on safe mode. After that restart again your computer. Running your computer on safe mode will fix and correct some errors because of faulty installed drivers, multiple drivers installed with same drivers or faulty software installed in your computer.

Also, run disk defragment on your computer by going to start menu, choose accessories, choose system tools, choose disk defragment and after this, restart again and it will run faster other than before.

If still slower, just run the system restore to restore the previous setting of your computer. Go to accessories, choose system tools, choose system restore and choose the date your want to restore.

I hope it helps you.

My aspire 3680-2633 is running super slow! How can I get it some speed


Hi,

There are two possible reasons for computer running slow:
1. A lot of applications are installed and the Windows is trying to load all during the startup process
2. The computer is infected with virus

Try uninstalling some softwares and also scan your computer for virus

If the issue still persists, the I would suggest a full system recovery, you can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps:
Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction.

NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

My computer run slow


try to click on start->run->type"msconfig"->then in starup then disable all programs you want but dont disable critical sys programs. This will make sure that all these programs will not star with windows. It will free up memory. You can also try to reinstal System or buy more memory.

Running slow - want to restore factory settings


In some cases, when the laptop first starts booting you'll see an option something like 'Press F11 for system restore'. If your laptop doesn't show this option on boot, the only way to reinstall the operating system is with the installation disks. Alternatively, you could scan your computer for viruses, run a disk defragmentation by opening up the 'My Computer' icon, right clicking on your storage drive and selecting 'Properties'. Once in the properties menu select the 'Tools' tab at the top and run the disk defragmentor. If it doesn't run properly, run the 'Error Checking' utility from the same menu.
Also be sure that your hard drive isn't completely full, as Microsoft operating systems use a part of your free space as paging memory.

Laptop suddenly shutsdown at startup


First disconnect anything connected to the laptop not necessary for booting.

Next, when you boot start slowly tapping F8 function key after the BIOS loads, but before you see anything that says Windows.

A menu should pop up. Select Last known good configuration that worked from the menu.

If it still reboots, use F8 to get to the startup menu and select Safe mode.

If you can get to the desktop now in Safe mode, try running a System Restore back to before the problem occurred.

Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and select System Restore.

Follow the prompts and select a bold date before the problem began. After the reboot the problem may be resolved, but you may have to re-install any recently added software.

If still no go, boot to the Windows CD and choose to run a repair.

Let me know if you need more help.
