Windows 7: Lagging whenever updates and

Lagging whenever updates and

I'm experiencing extreme lag whenever an update appears on my computer (not while installing it). When I do install the updates, they take 30 min to an hour. The lag stops when the update is installed, and begins again when another update appears.

At the same time my computer will not create restore points and gives this error when I try to create them "creation of shadow copy has timed out try this operation again (0x81000101)"

Also, my comp will not let me install any programs. It just sits there and does not move no matter how long I let it install.

What Anti-virus software are you running?
Do you have both Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider and Volume Shadow Copy started ---> automatically? (Find in Services)

I've changed Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider and Volume Shadow Copy to start automatically and restarted the computer, but it hasn't fixed the problem

See what your problem was? ... you were infected! Now, download Microsoft Security Essentials http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

Keep Malwarebytes' and MSE updated and scan often. Also make sure you have all Windows Updates downloaded and installed.

Thanks! I did all of that, but all the same problems are still occurring. Is there something I'm missing?

Okay, let's flush your DNS cache and restore MS's Hosts file by doing this:

Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

@Echo on
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0

Save as flush.bat to your desktop. Right click on the batch file and runs as Administrator. Your computer will reboot itself,\.

Next, download TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forums and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.

Now, after doing the above... Download DDS from one of these links:
Mirror 1 Mirror 2 Mirror 3
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click the dds icon to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt <-- this will be minimized in the task tray
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your new topic.
The scan will instruct you to post Attach.txt as an attachment.
