Windows 7: Wierd browsing boot up problem after new build

24 May 2013   #21

Windows 7

Thanks. Appreciate the dummy's guide, but the problem with these guides is that as soon as you develop the perfect guide, they invent a better class of dummy.

I started with last suggestion first, but it did not resolve the issue.

I then completed the first suggestion and have now created a "big" file. I have uploaded it to my site so your being able to get it should be easy.

Appreciate the assistance.

There are times when I'm the dummy:
I totally missed this post where you mentioned that you had already tried a shortcut in the startup folder. And you were kind not to even mention it

I have a copy of the log file and I'll need to research some things before suggesting a cause for Firefox's slow loading.

It appears that there is just a lot of stuff going on when your system first starts. There are some entries in that log that I've not been able to figure out what is causing them. Nothing bad per se, I just don't know the app that is causing 32k entries for runonce while Firefox is starting.

You might need to find that via:

Then that just means this delay is caused by things that you cannot turn off via that process.

Take a look at the large log file that you created a link to in post #21. do you know what app is making the large number of entries for "runonce.exe"? Look at the URLs that the runonce.exe is working with. Do you know what app put those entries in the registry? Perhaps an app like SpywareBlaster. If you find such an app, temporarily have it remove that list of URLs and test Firefox's load time after a restart.

Very interesting but I don't like it!

I have absolutely no idea about those huge number of entries after the runonce.exe. I did download SpywearbloodyBlaster and ran it, thinking I was doing the right thing, but then uninstalled it with ZSoft Uninstaller which also removes the remnants of the program and registry entries.

I have now run:-
Adaware Cleaner
Malware bytes
Avira Anti Virus
and have run Glary Utilities a number of times.

I have looked at all the programs I have uninstalled using ZSoft Uninstaller. The Post Uninstall Manager shows any left over files and gives the user the opportunity to remove them.

Everything that has been uninstalled is clean except one program component; MixiDJ chrome Toolbar.

There are hundreds of Registry Entries there, and no matter what I try, they will not uninstall. As soon as one of a number of entries are listed to delete and then deleted, the program freezes, and even those that have been deleted, are there the next time the computer boots.

I have also tried removing them in Safe Mode, but it still will not let me delete all the entries. And those deleted, keep coming back.

Using screen capture, I have attached a small sample of the files so you can see the sort of registry entries still there.

SpywareBlaster is not a bad program per se. It causes IE and Firefox to take up a bit more RAM and both will load a bit slower (but not as slow as you are seeing).

You have a few apps installed that I've not used like the ZSoft uninstaller and that start up manager app. While I understand what those two apps do, I don't know if the uninstaller app can correctly uninstall SpywareBlaster. You might need to install SpywareBlaster again and use its interface to remove its protection from IE and Firefox... then uninstall the SpywareBlaster app any way that you like.

Do you happen to have an app that will let you save the list of installed programs to a text file? If not, install CCleaner and select Tools (left column). Uninstall should already be selected. Look inthe lower right for the button that lets you save a list of installed programs to a text file. Please post the file as an attachment.

I use CCleaner too so that request was easy, and the list is attached.

I will try the Spywareblaster suggestion later this morning.

Thanks for the list. I do not see anything in that list that would cause the runonce exe to process those URLs.

I'll ask others to look thru that list as well.

Uninstall Avira and install Microsoft Security Essentials. Run a full scan.

Uninstall Spyware Blaster and install - Downloads, in its preferences turn off all auto Updating and Starting with Windows. Then run a Full Scan.

Keep a clean boot with nothing set to start with Windows except MSE, as shown in Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

I also limit browser add-ons to Flash. Anything else will prompt to have itself added and you can decide if you want to use it on a one-time basis.

So it may be as simple as restricting your Add-Ons so the browser isn't burdened by a bunch of Start-ups, as is always the Best Practice with Win7.
