Windows 7: Win7 32-bit slow (what am I doing wrong?)?

I don't mean to interfere with the excellent guidance you've been providing but, in post 18, you suggested the problem may be due to third party software. In post 5, I suggested running a clean boot which could identify software which is causing the problem. So far, my suggestion has been ignored. Not sure why especially since it takes just a few minutes.

The reason its flagged is that it uses the highest privilages.
As i said its the tool of choice - its even used on the Malwarebytes security forum - check it out.

Lets try a purely info tool - ignore the title it provides a great deal of info
Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions


Can you confirm if your still only running IE.

I installed Chrome, but haven't disabled IE11 (too close to Win Updates...).
Per BD support, I changed my FW from Public to Home/Office (I have cable internet)- Things seem to load faster...

Hi Scott,

you do seem to be fixated, on windows updates, running and settings
Security is more important, which means YES whatever programs/features your running they must be upto date.
ALL you have to do is Install shutdown and reboot to ensure this is achieved

IF you do not want to follow any suggestions fine, but why post in the first place???
Were not here to screw you up

Because W7 is entering its EOL shutdown timeline you are going to have to move away from ANYTHING thats going to lose support, IE/MSE/UPDATES
3rd party programs ARE NOT affected

Been using W7 for years (2009) but now only update Security fix's for MS programs that i use
(bye bye IE/MSE)

Hi Scott.

You seem to have changed a number of Services start-up defaults
please see Brinks tutorial here
Services - Restore Default Services in Windows 7
please restore them- pnp for starters

Goto Device manger update your, reported as problematic
SATA
USB3 drivers
Intel grahics
Epson drivers

note Windows Update has an option to update drivers for you have you turned this OFF

Run the Network services Troubleshooter


Now you have 2 programs that include a registry optimizer
Ccleaner and Vitsoft
I do hope you have NOT used them, they cause more problems than there worth
(possibly Ashampoo as well)

I see you have now installed Google, would be a good time to uninstall IE11.

Hey Roy:
Thank you for the analysis!
1. I checked Win Update (see attachment), and everything was enabled (I clicked the shield, as this was not there when I installed 7. No updates the next day (only checks on cold startup).
2. I checked/updated everything in Device Manager (Run as admin), and all were up to date).
3. I have run Ccleaner several times, and I feel you are correct about it causing problems!
a. I have run Vitsoft registry cleaner Only (as admin), and fear it may have corrupted things...!?
4. Reinstalled PnP...
5. No problem with Network Services (BD may have caused the errors?).
6. When my computer shop migrated from HDD to SDD, he also installed Samsung Magician (Control program). I have read reviews where this kept 7 from configuring properly.

I feel that we may be beating a dead horse, and a repair install may be necessary (with Cc/Vitsoft/Magician/, uninstalled!
I hope that MS hasn't disabled the ISO (as they have with other 7 downloads...!)?

G' day
Scott

"I have run...registry cleaner Only (as admin), and fear it may have corrupted things...!?"
This is one of several reasons that both sevenforums and bleepingcomputers do not recommend such utilities.

It still seems no one is willing to perform a simple clean boot.

In lookiing at the log files, one thing seems to occur on more than one occasion and which can cause system slowdown- radar_pre_leaks.

I'm not recommending any software, but this blog seems to provide a good evaluation of this situation and is worth a complete read-

For clean boots one can use autorun or msconfig to temporarily slim down starting programs.
Such is often used to troubleshhot and reveal bloaters or crawlers.

Thank you for the link!-
One problem with 32-bit is that it only allows 4gig of memory!
i have 1 stick of Crucial 4gig of DDR4 installed on this MBO, with only 2,5gig available!
They don't make 2gig DDR4, so I also can't use dual channel!
BTW- Uninstalling Ccleaner, and Vitsoft helped somewhat.
