Lag/Lock Up Issues

Post by Gwyndolynne »

So the other day my PC decided to just basically lock up/freeze and over all run ungodly slow..

Full virus scan (Avast!), full AdAware scan, defrag.. All clean and successful..

Ran a boot scan, oh no.. Virus! (Which I can't currently identify since I'm in the process o running another scan to see wtf is going on).. Deleted (I realize now I might/should have quarantined it but..) Also came up with two corrupt internet explorer temp files. (Only use IE when updating my leagues website to make sure the code runs/works on all browsers)..

Finally got my comp up and running.. Went in and cleared all temp/cache's for IE..

Nothing is showing up on any of the scans now (Well maybe on this boot scan but is currently only 19%) .. And my comp will run normally for a decent bit and then just start locking up again.. Taking minutes to registered that something has been clicked on, programs becoming "Not Responding", minutes to pull up CTRL+ALT+DEL.. Even took 12 minutes to register that I hit "restart" and for it to actually restart (Restarted for the boot scan)

The only odd thing that I can see/notice is a folder called ".gstreamer-0.10" under my user folder.. And in it is a file called "registery.i686.bin" .. The only thing I've been able to find online about it is that it's some Linux frame work thing.. And no matter what I do to it, it won't delete..

I've also tried to restore my PC and every time I get a "Unsuccessful" .. Even when trying in Safe Mode..

Suggestions? Opinions?

Once this boot scan is finish, I'll post the results (if any) and the name the virus that it found (which was never detected in any virus scans only the first boot scan which was run after all my other scans..)

Follow that guide.

There's a possibility though that this is more than just a malware issue. I guess start there and then let us know if it's still crawling. Could also be a hardware issue.

If I haven't been able to destroy all trace of a virus in under 4 hours, including the super fun issues it has caused, it's time for a re install. That's just me though, I find they cause problems that just don't get fixed even after their removal. I haven't had one in quite a while though, Yay!

One of my buddies said the same (about it being a hardware issue).. But will run through this guide with fingers crossed..

Sounds like a hard drive problem. Instead of spending 500 on roller skates how about you buy a SSD instead of abusing old technology built by AtricBear. All that sh^t is probably counterfeit since he's Chinese.

maybe run CCleaner, clean all that porn off your drive.

there's a small chance of hardware overheating, air condition your room. Global warming made it hot this summer.

Yeah.. Who knows how old the parts in here really are.. He's also terrible at replying to texts..

I've ran like 7 different programs to clean/check my system for crap.. Nothing minus what I've already listed..

Room is AC'd and have air flow around my CPU.. Currently running at 124° .. And after being fine most of the day, has gone back to locking up and "Not Responding" programs..

not really. I did a LFR in January and logged in for a free week in April. Looking back it's crazy we used to raid/wipe 4 days a week consistently.
