Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

2 Answers

Slow running Computer

I have windows XP Home. when I bring up my task manager, the system is using 99% of the total usage. It has almost brought my pc to a stand still. I have tried a few things to see if it would help and nothing I can think of helps. I have unuinstalled McAfee, taken all games off of it, tried lavasoft Ad-Aware, and even got a system mechanic software and nothing seems to work. Any help would definately be appreciated

You need to shut down programs that are running in background.
Also you will need to run a scan disk, and also defrag your hard drive.
After doing these things should speed your computer up.

If you are not sure how to shut down programs running in background, do a search online for MSCONFIG, and that should help you get started.

Hope this helps.
Feel free to ask any other questions if you have them.
Good luck.

Outlook express freezes


There are many things that might cause your PC or any application in your PC like outlook express to run slowly or freeze or even restart at time and then. It could be a fragmented disk, fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; caused by an infection.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager Button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, Google the name and you should find what the process is for.

If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:

So here is the best solution that I can suggest for you is to scan your
PC with a very strong antivirus, here is the link to get it.Its very good.

To clean up registry there is another very good application which will keep your PC registry out of trouble caused from spywares.

The task mgr process itself is eating up memory like 90-100% then stops and returns to normal for a minute then keeps repeating over and over. It never settles down for any period of time, any solutions?...


Unless you have an inordinate amount of processes running at the same time, your taskmgr.exe should not come close to that type of usage. You've stated you have done virus scans and found nothing. It might be worth trying some of the free scans online. Either your Task Manager is corrupt or you do have some type of virus on the system. Do a search on the Microsoft site for Process Explorer. This is an excellent Task Manager replacement that will show many hidden processes that the Windows version will not see. I would then check your list of processes at a site like:

http://www.answersthatwork.com/Tasklist_pages/tasklist.htm

This is an excellent site that lists a huge number of processes and what they do. I would also do the following if you haven't already done so. Bring up your Start menu and choose Run...; then type sfc /scannow and press enter. This wil check your system files to see if they are genuine. Beyond that you might want to try and do a System Restore to a date previous to the time that this issue appeared.

Slow computer


Hi,

Have u got sufficient RAM to support all ur programs...Check with the Windows Task Manager (Right click on the Task bar) for the physical memory and page file usage in ur PC.

Using Task Manager itself...check whether any unknown process  like DC.exe, FUN.exe, etc., are running....OR...anyother process is running with more than 50% processor utilisation!

If any of the above symptoms are there, try changing to some other antivirus like Antivir OR Comodo and search for Malwares, and Viruses...


Bye

Have a nice day.

I hope ... this solves ur problem. :)
