Pc Is Very Slow Browsing Internet

I have 3 devices on my network at home, all are new since christmas. All came with windows 7 loaded. My pc is very slow browsing the internet. The other 2 are laptops and browse the internet fine. We all share the same internet connection so the problem is not the internet connection. The laptops use a wireless connection, my pc using a direct ethernet connection to the router.

I have tried drivers, i tried updating the router. I searched the web and tried numerous suggestions with no luck in getting the pc to browse the internet at a respectful speed. Tests show my laptops to get 1. 3mbs on my 1. 5mbs dsl, the pc gets . 5mbs or slower. I thought it was the nic drivers but i tried 3 different versions and no luck.

Browsing Network Extremely Slow

I have gone from a completely windows vista network to upgrading all systems to windows 7. The problem is that when i used to "browse" the network to see all of the computers/devices it was quite quick and access to the shares was almost immediate. Under windows 7 this takes quite some time to find all of the systems on the network, and then once it does, it can take still longer to open the shares to access the files. This extended wait has been fine, but now some programs which are accessing remote data on other computers are timing out if the share is not loaded before launching the application.

Why is windows 7 local network browsing so slow. The infrastructure (dlink dir-655 router/netgear gs748t gigabit smart switch) has not changed. Is there a settings change you can recommend.

Very Slow Internet

Ever since i installed windows 7 pro x64 my internet has been acting weird. There are 3 other computers on the network running windows xp pro 32-bit and one running vista home premium 32bit. When ever someone else is downloading something or watching a movie online my internet slows down to sub dial up speeds from it's normal 3mbit speed. It only does it on this computer, when i am downloading something none of the others slow down at all.

It only does this with 7 also, it doesn't do this with xp or vista. I have searched all over the internet and have found nothing helpful. Everything i have come across hasn't worked a bit. I have reinstalled 7 a few times and even tried all the different versions of the ethernet card driver i could find and nothing helps.

Slow Internet Performance

I've just received a new computer with windows 7 installed. It's running a d-link dwa 510 wireless network adapter to connect to a netgear modem/router. I have xp installed on my laptop connecting to the same modem/router and have no performance issues.

However, on my windows 7 pc the internet is running dreadfully slow. For example it took 15 minutes to load the www.microsoft.com home page. I would really appreciate some advice on what could be wrong with either internet explorer 8 or with my network connection.

Win 7 Slow After Removing Internet Security

Ok i have got rid of norton 2010 internet security now using microsoft security essentials my system is still slow. I'm running an i7950 intel , 6gb corsair ram on an asus rampage 2 extreme mobo , 1500 w of power and a ati saphire 5800 series gc. I have 2 1tb drives and a ssd drive, all cool coolmater v8 in lian li x 1000b case. This should fly but my old machine is running windows 7 ok not great) but better than this.

I have followed the chat and tried most things has anyone got any ideas what could cause ie8 to freeze, sytem to slow to crawl? I run iolo  system mechanic to check system and web root spysweeper instead of norton but there has to be something else. When i check system its cpu @ 5% and 1. 2 gb ram being used, its like w7 cannot multi-task or does not recognize the resources.

Full Screen Browsing With Ie

This is not a question but a suggestion. I couldn't find any more appropriate place to post it. I use full-screen browsing as much as possible to maximize my screen real estate, and have found a few things that would help make this easier.

1- when a new page is loading, show the status of the connection to the website on the main screen. The problem is that the connection progress is normally displayed to the user on a browser tab, status bar or system tray, but all these areas are hidden in full-screen mode so there is no information for the user to know the status of his connection attempt.

2- when opening a new tab in full-screen mode (either with the cursor or using ctrl+t), the new tab opens and then the screen immediately maximizes again. Of course, opening a new tab is only the first step in the process. We still need to enter a web address, or search term, or select from the favorites or history menus, so the menus and tabs should remain visible until the user has launched a website. Or, ie can go back to full-screen after the user clicks on a space inside the new tab.

3- as far as i know there is no shortcut key to access the internet search dialog box like there is to access the address bar (f4). I think one of the function keys should be used to give one-button instant access to the search field.

Fyi i am using ie8 on vista home premium, if that matters. I think this functionality would be beneficial to users of all different versions, especially given the preponderance of laptops, netbooks, and the upcoming release of chrome os!

Browsing For Files Using Bluetooth

Under windows vista - whatever bluetooth software i had used to let me connect to my bluetooth enabled phone and browse the memory for pictures, videos, etc to download. I see no such option on windows 7 - i have a lenovo t61 - is there some driver or program that i missed installing?  It only have send a file, receive a file listed as options - kind of tedious. Under ubuntu i can browse my phone just fine - so this is something that is missing or broken in windows 7.

Blank Dropdown When Browsing Through Folders

I just installed windows 7 and have a problem. When i browse through my files, (using what i believed is called the windows explorer, by pressing "the-windows-button"+e), i see my current location as usual on the top "address bar" or whatever its called. But on the right of this address bar there is an arrow, and when i press it there is a drop menu, where in previous versions of windows there showed the tree-expantion of my current location, but now this drop down is completely empty, which is very uncomfortable.

Can't Share Internet To Lan From Huawei 3g Internet Adaptor

I am in severe need of some help because i am about to go crazy trying to figure this out. I recently upgraded my mom's pc to windows 7 and i'm having trouble getting her network back in order. She has a huawei mobile broadband adaptor (3g), model ec168, that i'm trying to use to supply internet to her laptop and xbox360 via her router. I had it working for the last year when windows xp was still on her pc, but since installing windows 7, i can't get it to work. I'm using the same settings as i was before but i get nothing.
Here are the settings that used to work:

1. I enabled internet connection sharing on her 3g adaptor and shared it to the lan adaptor.

2. I set the lan's ip address to "192. 168. 0. 1"/subnet mask was the usual "255. 255. 255. 0" and the default gateway/dns server fields were left blank (since the pc was serving as the gateway and the dns sever).

3. I turned off dhcp on the router and set the router's ip to "192. 168. 0. 10"

4. I left the xbox360 and laptop set to "automatic"

With these settings it worked like a champ on xp, but i get nothing on windows 7. Also, everytime i turn ics "on" through the 3g adaptor, it says that it has assigned the ip address of "192. 168. 137. 1" to the lan. Not sure why but it does.

Security Updates Stop Internet Explorer From Connecting To Internet

All ie7 security updates i install (cumulative or not) cause ie7 to not be able to connect to the internet. I have to uninstall the security update in order to connect to the internet. I have windows vista 64, ie7 and cable internet. I have checked for virus's several time using microsoft security essentials and malwarebytes antivirus and it always comes back clean. I am also running windows firewall and have put internet explorer on the exception list as well as turned it off to see if that was causing it from connecting and it did nothing. Can someone please tell me how to fix this.

Wireless Internet Is Connected But No Internet Access

I just bought a new computer with os windows 7. As i was doing the set-up, it asked about the home wireless network and i identified it and entered the internet key. After the set-up was over, i cannot connect to the wireless network. It says connected and no internet access. It has the public icon and "unidentified network".

I have a "network error" window that keeps popping up that says "another computer on this network has the same ip address". I tried one of the solutions on this site to resolve it. I used the command prompt to release and renew the ip address and seems to not have worked. How can i get a valid ip address? And how can i make my computer recognize the home wireless network?

Slow Win 7

Well i have looked at the others having the same issue although none appear to be exactly like mine so here goes. I have a new machine and its runing slow. The specs are :

Asus rampage ii extreme mobo, intel i7 950, 6 gb 1500 ddr3 corsair ram, coolermaster v8, in a lain li x 1000 case, various hd and a ssd, saphire radeon 5870 ati graphics etc. This should kill windows 7 and there is no problem with over heating and i have the latest drivers and yes norton 2010 installed but everything was fine until last couple of weeks the only thing i can think of was installing windows live and skype around this time.

The issues are ie crashes for now reason sporadically at start up, programs take for ever to load and say they are 'not responding'. For some reason norton utilities always finds errors in registry which it 'fixes' this seems to make the machine at least work but not as fast as it should. I could try removing live or norton but i'm not convinced this is the issue. 'yet'. Any ideas?

Pc Has Been Running Slow

"pc needs a fix!" Windows 7 home prem 32-bit for the past 3 weeks my pc is simply been running slow. I would compare the issue to what you would see if your hd was asleep and the delay was as a result of it waking up. However, that cannot be so because the delay continues even after the 1st action and surely the hd is not going back to sleep in under 1 second. I have run ccleaner. It shows no issues, both as to registry and cleaner (filestemp, etc).

My anti-virus program is current. I see many free offers to run a pc analysis but i am always very hesitate about running such programs. You never know the source and you never know what might be left behind. Suggestions?

Slow Installation

When installing win7 ultimate 64 bit to a new clean ssd i get to expanding windows files and the percentage meter goes up very slowly or hangs indefinitely. I sometimes get an error saying that it cannot read the media eg cd/dvd drive.

Things i have already tried to solve this:-

- Install 64 bit and 32 bit version.
- Download new 64 bit and burn slowly to disc.
- Check that all hardware is not faulty.
- Check that the hardware meets min requirements and is compatible with win 7.
- Remove all ram but one stick.
- Remove all unnecessary hardware.
- Enable/disable almost every setting in bios individually before install. This includes disabling floppy, usb etc.
- Installing win7 on a usb flash drive.
- Updated drivers, bios etc.
- Many other things i have forgotten by now that others have been successful with. I have run out of ideas.

Typing Slow In Ie

I'm a windows 7 (64) home premium user running ie 8. I've begun experiencing slow keyboard input within ie browser windows. (Other browsers, such as opera, firefox, and chrome, work fine. Also, the problem is only within ie. Even when the problem is occurring, i have no issues typing in other programs). It seems to develop over the course of a session-within a few minutes, i have to slow my input speed or characters are dropped. In time, if i don't pause with each key, i can't get complete words out.

The issue seems to have crept up. It was not an issue two weeks ago.

This is a relatively clean overall setup-i installed windows 7 with complete partition deletions about a month ago, and have been highly discerning in installing new applications.

Naturally, i worry about malware, but i've been diligently scanning with multiple programs (malwarebytes, windows defender, avast), and have yet to turn anything up. To be frank, i'm this machine's only user, and it's used with caution. I'm not plumbing the depths of the internet or downloading bootleg albums. It's used for work.

Any ideas? I could just switch completely to firefox or chrome, but i'm trying to troubleshoot.

System: acer extensa 4420 / amd turion 64 x2 tl-60 / 4gb ddr2

Backup Is Slow

I have been backing up my files for almost 5 hours now! It's on its second dvd now and is at 61%. The percentage does move but very slowly! Why is it taking so long? Is there a problem or something, and if there is how do i fix it? Thanks everyone!Edit: i just got the following message when it was 63% complete: "windows backup found errors on the media while saving a backup on it and cannot use it for additional backups" then it asked me to put in another dvd, which i did.

Now it has continued backing up and is at 63% still. Ok, so how did it find errors on the dvd, when it was a brand new dvd? So should i still keep that dvd? I have been having issues with windows backup for the past 2-3 months and its really annoying!

Xp Mode Too Slow

Recently i bought a new hp computer with dualcore processor and 5 gb of ram, 64 bit system, which came with windows 7 home edition, and i intend of using it with my mastercam x3 64-bit. My software is not compatible to windows 7, so i bought the upgrade to windows 7 pro to be able to use the virtual xp mode. The installation went smooth, but in virtual xp mode the mastercam runs unacceptable slow. I dedicated 3gb ram to the virtual xp with no success.

Mastercam dealer told me that is the computer not running fast enough because the program run much faster on a old regular xp machine. In fact the task manager in xp mode, shows me only one core processor (although the computer has dual core, which is visible in w7 task manager) which is used 100% anytime i do any small task in mastercam.

Has the virtual xp mode just an emergency use under w7 and is it known to be slower? Will i get better result from xp if i downgrade from windows 7 to xp pro?

Explorer Is Very Slow

One one of my machines windows explorer is very slow. Additionally the standard file open/save boxes in applications are very slow. I installed a windows explorer replacement and it is very fast. I can live with the replacement (in fact i kind of like it), but the open/save boxes are still slow. And no, there is no malware on machine. The drives are not full, and any way it appears to unrelated to how much free space there is on the drive.

Just so there is no confusion, this is not internet explorer, but windows explorer (most people access it by clicking on "my computer" on the desktop. I say this because have searched around there seems to be confusion about which one is asked about. I have tried the suggestion about thumbnails and indexing. It has not helped.

Backup So Slow

I have a brand new dell pc (intel i7 processor) running windows 7 home premium 64-bit. (Oem)
I have about 350gb of data that i have transfered onto the new pc. I have tried running windows 7 backup to two different external drives. It seems to take 24 or more hours to run a backup with windows 7.

On my old pc with vista it took 3-4 hours to backup the same data to the same drives
I can drag and copy files to a portable drive in about 3 hours

Here is what i did:
External drive shows 99% free space.
Ran error check on both pc and external drive.
Used settings for automatic fix file system error as well as attempt recover of bad sector.

Pc is running normally.
Power state is normal.
No other programs running.
Logged in as administrator  (i have no other uses. Just me as administrator)
Opened windows 7 backup.
Select "let me choose" what to back up.
Chose local disk "c" and "include a system image" box
Executed backup

This process should take a few hours, not a day.

What else can i try to speed up the windows 7 backup process?

Slow Down / Freeze

I am running windows 7 ultimate 32-bit and have been running it for about 4-5 months and have never experienced this problem before. What happens is that after an hour or two windows slows down almost to the point of freezing. It takes a long while to respond to anything i do. Even opening the start menu can almost take up to a minute. I have almost no other applications installed as i have removed everything. I am just running kaspersky 2010 and an anti-freeze app that opens something similar to task-manager. This app runs fine once it has opened but takes a while to open as well.

It allows me to stop processes that take up too many resources but the problem is that none of my applications use an excessive amount of resources and stopping them doesn't work either. I have run hardware test and my ram and hd are fine. Have also tested my sleep, hibernate and power settings to the point of exhaustion but nothing seems to work. I do not know if this is a hardware error or a software problem as i am relatively unfamiliar with the more technical side of things.

Sometimes even my start-menu opens fine but windows explorer starts the slow-down. Does anyone please have any idea what might be causing this?I have 2gb ddr2 800 mhz ram and 3ghz core 2 duo processor. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated as i am running out of ideas. Please also let me know if you require more information.

Dvd Drive Is Very Slow

I encountered another problem with my dvd drive " it does not work properly, as i can see root folder of dvd disk, but if i try to open any sub-folder or copy any file from root folder it freezes. For instance, i tried to start ms office 2007 installation from dvd but can't even execute setup.exe from root folder (was patiently waiting for 1+ hour).

After some research on the internet, i removed upper filter settings from windows registry (there is no lower filter). It helped a little bit, so i can see content of sub-folders (after 5-10 mins of waiting) but, still can't execute anything. Appreciate your help to fix it.

Computer details:

Msi p35 platinum, q6600, 4 gb ram, samsung sh222a, few sata hdds, nvidia geforce 9800 gtx
Windows 7 ultimate x64 (clean install from retail box)

Peripherals setup

Ide:
Master: internal dvd-rw, samsung sh222a
Slave: none
Sata:
Sata 3-7 various hdds (all seagate of various capacity from 750 gb to 1. 5 tb)
Raid: ide
P. S. The same setup works fine with windows xp

Ps. There are few files in sub-folders (winxp opens them in milliseconds). Also, i checked ide controllers, dma is enabeled for all drivers. Even log on win7 indicates tons of "error on cd drive during paging operation" events (no errors on winxp).

P. S. Cd cable is standard 40 pin, labeled as "ide cd cable" by manufacturer (asus). I've tried dvd in slave and cable select mode.

Win 7 Slow Boot

Recently windows 7 has been slow to boot for me. This actually starts after the welcome screen, not during the windows logo part. It used to be that the welcome screen would pop up for only a few seconds and then the desktop would appear. Now it stays on the welcome screen a good 20-30 seconds, the screen goes black for another 30-40 seconds and then the desktop appears.

I've searched online and a lot of people say it's a faulty driver, however i have not installed any drivers recently. I've run a chkdsk and defragged my system with perfectdisk 11. Neither helps.
My systems configuration is a core i7 2. 66 ghz, 6gb ram, 1tb hdd and an nvidia gtx 260. I have windows 7 premium 64-bit. Any suggestions on how i can get my system booting like it used to without re-installing windows?

Win 7 Slow Logon

I loaded windows 7 64-bit onto my ssd hard drive (intel x-25m) when i had an amd 4000+ processor and asus m32n motherboard. Recently i changed my motherboard and processor to an intel core i7 processor and gigabyte ga-x58a-ud3r motherboard. I also installed a edimax wireless n pci wifi adapter.

Windows 7 starts up fine up until i get to the login screen. When i click to login it takes around 40s to load the windows screen whereas before it would take about a second.

Should i reinstall windows 7 to fix this problem? I had to re verify the copy of windows because i changed the motherboard and processor will i be able to reinstall windows 7 again without having any problems verifying the copy? (Its the retail version of win 7 64bit).

Just a note i have a picture as a background for my windows 7 desktop so the solid color background thing doesn't seem to be the problem.

Sudden Slow Reboot

I have been 'optimizing' windows 7 (using msconfig, stopping non microsoft services, uninstalling 'bloatwear' etc). The laptop rebooted consistently within 55 seconds. Then all of a sudden it's over 2 minutes. Thinking i had broken something by constant tweaking i eventually did a complete reinstall booting from the installation cd, reinstalled all the programs i wanted (firefox, ccleaner, avg, eve and a couple of adobe products). All was fine - really fast reboot until windows finds the time to install all the updates (22 of them) released since my windows installation dvd was produced. It seems to be this update that suddenly more than doubles the reboot time. Any suggestions? I can list the updates if necessary.
