    Past 2 days Vista (Explorer, simple tasks) is running very slow - average 10 seconds to perform simple tasks: Open/Close, Delete, Copy/Move, Rename. The thinking circle appears, faded file info on move/copy; empty windows on closing. It's cut my effectiveness nearly 100%.:(

    1- Please click HERE to download HijackThis.
    2- Run the program.
    3- Click on the Main Menu button if not already there.
    4- Select Do a system scan and save a logfile.
    5- Copy and paste the scan log from Notepad into your next reply.
    6- Do not "Fix" anything unless advised to do so.

    For Windows 7 and Vista:

    If Windows is denying access to the Hosts file, disable the UAC and run HijackThis again.

    One of your programs may be causing the slowness.

    Try a Clean Boot procedure to hopefully isolate it. Run it for both Services and Startup items.

    Problem solved! Great support, Phantom! Computer is running almost perfectly; only seems a bit slow on moving pictures between files. A faded image lingers momentarily, which never happened previously.

    Shall I keep the Sys Config as is NOW configured?

    New issue: Spell check isn't working in Outlook. Had this problem before and forgot how I solved it! Reboot doesn't work.

    Advice? Do you give advice on purchasing new computer/programs? We need to upgrade a 6 yo Toshiba laptop. And I'm wondering whether to switch to Office 7? I have a lot of clients who use MS Word programs, and all my files/work for 20 years is MS Word, so I've stayed with Windows. Is an Apple computer worth the switch?

    What was the culprit you managed to isolate?


    What seems to be the problem with Spell Check?

    How to Enable Spell Check in Outlook 2010


    On my computer with Windows XP, I'm using an old version of Office. That version doesn't work on Windows 7 64-bit I'm using on my laptop. I've installed the free OpenOffice and recently changed to LibreOffice. LibreOffice Writer lets you save documents directly as Word documents. No need for a conversion software when you need to open .odt documents with Word. So far, I've had no problems with using LibreOffice Writer instead of Word. They seem perfectly compatible. Personally, I don't think Office is worth paying when you have free good alternatives. But, it's an opinion.

    Hmmm. How do I manage to isolate the culprit?

    Spell check is now working. Go figure.

    Thanks for tips on OpenOffice and LibreOffice.

    Is Windows 7 a better operating system than Vista in your opinion?

    I will donate... you've been a life-saver. I was headed for the asylum.

    I was referring to the Clean Boot procedure. You must not stay in that mode indefinitely. It's for troubleshooting purposes only. You need to isolate a culprit and get back into Normal Mode.

    Many seem to think so. I've never used Vista but Windows 7 needs a lot less physical memory to run.

    How is Windows 7 Better Than Windows Vista?

    Phantom, it's me again. After resetting Sys Config back to Normal, the trouble began again. So I reconfigured.

    Currently with SysConfig I'm in Selective Startup

    • Services: I'm hiding MS Services and running only Kaspersky (1 Spam-Antivirus) & Sony Services (17)
    • Startup Mode with only Kaspersky, MS, Sony & Sun Microsystems programs running (total 12)
    While boot and desktop seem to be working faster, when I'm IN file folders there's significant delay in processes: copy/move, delete, open.

    I would tend to suspect Kaspersky. Have you tried disabling it?

    Phantom, you're great. Seems it's Kaspersky. Now what? I've had Kaspersky for 4 years. License expires in December. Recommendation? I need Spam/antivirus coverage of course.

    Sys Config: Shall I continue the current configuration?

    Kaspersky, probably like my NOD32, must have something called advanced heuristics. If they are set to protect in real-time, they will without a doubt improve security but may also slow down your computer considerably. That's why those settings aren't recommended by NOD32 to be used at all times.

    Look inside Kaspersky's settings for something similar you could disable.

    Kaspersky is an excellent security product. I wouldn't change.

    As for your Sys Config, it looks OK to me.

    Phantom, thanks again. I reviewed all the Kaspersky windows/options, and unchecked anything related to heuristics.

    Very much appreciate all your help and advice. Enjoy a great evening! (I'm US Eastern... sun is beginning to set):D

    PS - Where is the place in the "upper left corner" where I indicate problem fixed???
