PC Help Needed

  PCNeedHelp 21:24 09 Mar 2015

So recently in the past week my computer has been getting slower and more unresponsive. At first it was just annoying but now it's taking years to load. When I boot up the computer the screen which says welcome is normal and then turns white. This is followed by the theme being classic and not connecting to either the Ethernet or wifi (Safe mode with networking doesn't work). Safe mode is also really slow but can still use it. I have used like 3 antivirus software (Mcafee, AVG, Panda Security) to completely scan the computer but it's picking up no viruses or Trojans.

Specs: Acer Aspire M3910 Windows 7 (Home Premium 64-bit) Intel Core i3 (Processor 550) Memory 3gb (~1.4gb in use) Hard Drive 640gb (CPU usage: 0% and Physcal Memory 46%)

Use of more than one installed Antivirus will cause all sorts of problems as they will clash.

Decide which one you want to keep and remove the other two with the appropriate removal tool uninstall will leave remnants that could still be problematic.

Once thats sorted try running

sfc / scannow

windows will find and replace corrupt or missing windows files.

More advice available when you have completed those tasks if no better..

Have you rebooted after uninstalling AVs?

Also, open Network and Sharing Center in Control Panel, or by right-clicking Network icon on Taskbar.

Run Troubleshooting options

I have tried troubleshooting, but windows comes up with nothing

Check in device manager for any exclamation marks against the netwrok card drivers

IN I.E. click on tools and make sure any proxy settings are unticked.

No exclamation marks against any network adapters

However, my troubleshooting says there might be a problem with the driver for local area connection adapter and wireless network connection adapter

Also whenever I go into control panel and select change adapter settings nothing comes up

Any help would be greatly appreciated

In device manage select the network adaptor and right click select properties tab

what does it say there?

I'll leave you to it, but I just went and found the drivers if you want to try.
