Even search speed is slow?


What is slow, i. e. the computer, the booting of the computer, the network, the internet? All of these may appear slow if you are focusing on getting the computer to do a specific task that it is struggling with.

If the sluggishness appeared after you installed some program, try uninstalling it to see if your computer recovers, possibly using something like the Revouninstaller. Or, performing a system restore to a time prior to your experiencing of the sluggishness might just cause the problem to vanish.

Cold start your computer if you are in the habit of leaving it perpetually connected. This may refresh ram that has not been released from some programs you may have run but are no longer using.

You could check to see if Malwarebytes detects any malware on your computer.

If your computer is an older model, adding ram would decrease its dependence on churning memory into a swap file on the hard drive. How much free space do you have on the drive?

If the drive has never been defragged, defrag it. If the browser history has not been cleared in a long time, clear it. But don't clear it every time as this causes the computer to have to reload from the net a lot of "junk" that supports the pages you regularly visit. You just use up data allowances doing so.

I would avoid the registry cleaners in this instance. Try a disk cleanup found in administrative tools, alternatively. You might try CCleaner but maybe resist having it clean your registry; stick to it cleaning your cookies, internet history, and temp files.

If searches of the hard drive are slow, try Swiftsearch or Everything. If a search of the internet seems slow, check your data allowance if on a prepaid plan. If on a network and the intranet is slow, you may have a router or cabling problem.

As you don't mention your operating system, it is difficult to make a recommendation. I would run dskchk on an XP OS.

Fix for unresponsive scripts in Mozilla Firefox causing it to hang


If you have been having problems with your browser hanging due to a script seen a similar screen to this and pulling you hair out then try this fix before you safe in safemode and diagnose each potential add-on that might be causing the unresponsive script.

I also recommend using either Sysinternals Process Explorer or Windows Task Manager to see if there is another process hogging the CPU during this time, this might be all that the problem is an not with Firefox at all type about:config in the browser then try these values the default value is 20 seconds I recommend a minute for both the chrome and normal script_run_times, if it is set to 0 this means it will wait forever, try to avoid this setting.

Simply right click and modify it will say user set when changed to 1 minute (60secs) i this case.

My emachine pc keeps running slow and crashing with unresponsive script


If you mean that it is taking a long time to carry out commands or you keep getting blue screen problems with a white error message ( might look like: 00000000XXXXEE11 or similar), then you have two possible problems:

Hardware related
Software related

Firstly Software related:
Slow running is often caused by the hard drive getting too full up. Windows likes to use some of the hard drive for a "swap file" (an area that it uses to store and retrieve information on as it carries out commands.) the bigger the swap file, the better it runs.
Also, over time, windows "throws" files anywhere it can on the hard drive, after a while, these take longer to find and the system slows down.

To cure this, in My Computer / C Drive / right mouse click and defragment the hard drive, then run a check for errors (not surface scan). Delete any cookies or other unneeded files from the hard drive and back up or move to another external drive files you do not use.

Worth at this point considering getting another hard drive to install in the computer / or an external USB hard drive.

After this, run a virus scan, to ensure that there are no viruses on the hard drive. You can download a good scanner fro free from DR WEB (cure it).

After this, if you are having the same problems and are getting the error message described above, check to see if you have installed some software recently or a driver for some hardware that may not agree with your system.

After that, it is possible that some windows files (.vxd possibly) have become corrupted. At this point do an over the top repair install using the windows cd.

Hardware problems:
These can range from the RAM on the motherboard beginning to fail (remove one module and check with only one installed). Replace if necessary
To a clogged CPU heatsink, blow any accumulation of dust and debris away from the heatsink to stop it overheating.
To (and this is a big possibility), a failing hard drive. You can test this by downloading a programme called HDD tune (free) and running it to see if the hard drive has any bad sectors or is failing.

After that, consider installing more RAM into the computer

Format the Operating system and start fresh

Some useless programs or virus's may be slowing down your system
a reset will enable you to regain full speed of your pc again.
And don't forget even with loads of memory the CPU may be lacking to run most of today's programs all at once.
