asalam alaikum wr wb,

My internet speed is real slow. I haven't been able to view a video for ages as it keep stopping. The streaming is slower than a snail. I rang my ISP for help and they said my line is fine but that my CPU usage is very high. It should be between 0-4 % but it's contantly between 25-50.


I have run a cleaner and removed all temp. internet files etc. I've deleted all games but nothing changed. Can anyone advise me as to what might be the problem and what to do about it.

May Allah reward you. Ameen

I had a very similar problem just last week. Lasted for about 1 and a half months. By the end I had installed 2 anti viruses and still no change - I even tried unplugging the modem and waiting 30 seconds but this only worked for about 4 minutes. So phoned up ISP and told them. They came around and changed the actual modem.

Works like a dream.

Possible solutions:
Remove the modem plug from its socket (i.e. turn it off) and wait for a few minutes. Put it back in and try the internet. This usually works.

If that one doesn't work, phone your ISP up and ask if one of their technicians can come around and take a look at the modem, cus there's probably something wrong with it. Well, it was in my case at least.

Ahmed bro, the speed is 8MB.

Tnx Aamir Bro, I tried switching off the router a few times. But it hasn't helped. BT got me to plug my router into the PC (I was using wireless) and change the filter. It seemed to help the speed for downloading pictures but that's all. They said my line is fine and they can see my speed is very slow. They mentioned that there must be something on my pc, like drivers, that are causing the problem.

I can't afford to call an engineer out, since the problem seems to be with my pc, not with their router it'll cost me a bomb. :-\

Don't upload the pic in paint.

Print screen the task manager then paste it into a word file. Resize it so it's a little bigger. Then upload the word file onto LI (as you did with the paint version).

If not, use photobucket (it's free to sign up). Upload the word document onto the site with your recently accquired account and it will give you a link. Copy/paste that link onto a post on this thread (it will be in either [url] or [img] tags). This one is slightly more hassle but is guaranteed to actually work.

As for your internet problem; I recommend using spyware doctor (get the free one from google) - there is the official version (from their website) which only gives you a scan but you have to pay to get the cleaning tool. The google one gives you scan and clean for unlimited uses.

Edit: T3h L1nk!

Sister is this happening all the time?Even if you are not in internet?
I had the same problem.......it was a program.....REAL PLAYER...the newest version.
So whenever I opened the Player my CPU would go up to 90% of usage!
So even I closed the Player,the CPU was still 90%.
Then I typed Ctrl - Alt - Del and went in PROCESSES,where it shows which program uses the most of the memory,and clicked on the Real Player name and clicked END PROCESS.So like that the program is totally shutdown from the computer
So after that the process would go to normal...
When started your computer to act like that!?

Inshallah we will solve the problem somehow!

JazakAllah khair Trax bro, May Allah reward you endlessly for your help inshaAllah. Ameen.

I just looked in processes and found the following programs that use most memory:


1) Mcshield.exe - 33,932 k

2) svchost.exe - 31,424 k

3) explorer exe. 13,828 k

4) fsssvc.exe 10,684 k

5) msnmsgr.exe 24,576 k

6) paltalk.exe 19,988 k

7) IEXPLORE.EXE 48,376 k

I don't know what some of these are. Should I end some of them?

I also have AOLacsd.exe. I don't have aol anymore but when I tried to end process it said terminating it ould cause system instability and loss of data. I'm too scared to end it? :?

What you can close:
Paltalk
IEXPLORER (this is the web page you are viewing)
MCShield (i think that is an antivirus)
msnmsgr (msn messenger)

Do not close:
svcohost
explorer.exe. (if you close this, the pc will shut down)

You can keep that fsscv thing.

I also have AOLacsd.exe. I don't have aol anymore but when I tried to end process it said terminating it ould cause system instability and loss of data. I'm too scared to end it? :?
Close it. See if you can find that program in your add/remove program list. If it is there, remove it.

And tell me what speed you have!
Then check again here:



You see here in the picture ,in PROCESS.....then there are IMAGE NAME, ISER NAME then is the column: CPU. This shows what program uses the CPU most.
Now see which program uses the CPU most.
Here in the picture is foldtrajlite.exe .....95%

Then we will see what comes next.:)

And Why they didn't told you what is the problem that your CPU usage is very high?

The free space in C drive is 60.2GB. I just scanned my pc with McAfee and found no problems. I don't have an anti virus only McAfee site advisor. Aamir bro mentioned that MCShield might be an antivirus? If it is I have no idea how it got there lol. Do you know what it is?

Also in the link you gave me, in Terms of Use #10 it says I have to back-up my comp systems. Is this necessary?

I've ended the processes you suggested. As for aol I'd already removed in from add/remove programs but there's a folder ACSCmn.dll in program files (common files) which won't delete. It says access is denied.

Also what is GameSpy arcade, and should I delete it?

The download speed is 0.14Mb and upload is 0.11Mb. The process using most memory is IEXPLORER.EXE 63.304 k. I've ended this as Aamir bro advised, but now I can see it again. It's going from 00, 02 and sometimes 10. How is it still there when I ended it?

BT just told me that the problem might be with the drivers on my pc and that I should call an engineer out. :hmm:


P.S. After all that the problem is still there. The videos are still the same and the pics on this page don't even open at first, then start coming in bits and pieces... oops brb.

May Allah reward you muslim sis and br. Woodrow. I've run the pitstop scan and got this summary.


There are 5 unwanted programs that are currently starting whenever your system boots. By removing these programs, you will get better performance, lower memory usage, and less clutter in your system tray. We did not find any unwanted programs that start when your system boots. PC Pitstop regularly updates its list of unwanted programs; by using Optimize regularly you can avoid these programs.


We identified 10 settings for Windows, Internet Explorer, and/or Firefox that can be tweaked to improve Internet performance. Your settings for Windows, Internet Explorer, and/or Firefox that appear to be tuned for best Internet performance. Using Optimize regularly will help to keep them that way. You skipped Internet optimization; to optimize your Internet connection go back to the first page and select your connection type. We tentatively identified 1 settings that can be tweaked to improve Internet performance.


Your drive has 2950 junk files totalling 107.62 megabytes. Optimize can clean the Reycle Bin, temporary files, and Internet caches that can clog the drive and cause excessive fragmentation. There were no junk files found on your system. By using Optimize on a regular basis, you can clean the Reycle Bin, temporary files, and Internet caches that can clog the drive and cause excessive fragmentation.


There are 590 incorrect or unneeded registry entries from failed program installations, obsolete Windows cached data, or missing files. These may cause incorrect operation of some applications. No problems were found during the registry scan. Use Optimize regularly to prevent problems and keep unwanted junk from accumulating in the registry.

Do I have to buy the software to fix the problem? At the end of the summary there's a box asking for name, email and license key - which I don't have. (I used the software anonymously).

this should work for you. go to start, go to run, type in msconfig click ok. When the window opens click startup. Click on disable all. follow the prompts to apply and restart the PC. You will probably have to redo every time the PC gets running slow. It seems you have a number of unneeded programs that run in the back ground. Untill you know which they are, it is best to not try to uninstall them and just disable the start up menu, when the pc is sluggish.

Sis no need to worry, i recently got my comp get checked and it sweeped up the virus. Still for safe side u can simply back up the important docs. And moreover it simply scans , and will not delete it. until unless we select it and delete.

I advise u go for it first. then we can be sure, that theres nothing wrong with the health of the comp , and something needs to be added on.

There is no need to get embarassed, infact it feels good that we are able to help you. backup is very simple - create 1 folder in another hardrive (say E drive) and copy all the docs that you feel are important and paste it in this folder. And simply run the antivirus. better dont work at that time. as the comp will be very slow. and depending on the space - it will require 2- 2.5 hours . then it will show u all the list of the threats, virus, vulnerability, it would be better that u send a snapshot of that , so that i can confirm which ones to delete. I would be online for next 2 hours. it would be better if u do this tomorrow morning inshallah. i would be online the whole day. like UAE (10 .am. to 6: p.m.) Uk is 3 hrs behind UAE.

plz do not hesitate to ask any doubts.

The Free Anti-Virus, does not wipe out the virus.
You have to register with the company and buy a key.

Well I have links to download software.
I have uploaded them.
With the link I will give you it will have a KeyGen
Instead of buying a Key from the Software
It will Generate one for you.
All you do is install the program
Open up the KeyGen
Copy & Paste the Serials

Bro King, It does infact this is the latest antivirus software. As i did it may be 1 week before on my comp. which was affected by a msn virus, and made my comp as slow as a tortoise. it allows you to clean and delete , The thing is u dont need to go for the trial version. It scans online. This is the site that I am referring to

A much wiser choice. Legal and moraly ethical too.

While there are key generators that will unlock nearly every software, they are illegal to use if you have not bought the program.

A short word to the wise, if you can read this post those who monitor the internet for copyright violations also can. And if us admins can see your ISP address

so can they.

Walekum Assalam Sis,

I have not come personally across this problem , but found some tips

Try this one first.

1) Go to ->Control Panel
2) Double Click on Sounds and Audio Device
3)Click on the [AUDIO] Tab
4) In default device choose ur actual sound device (like mine one is Realtek Ac97 Audio and make Sound recording device also the same as above (the one selected for default device)

I hope it works . Let me know

asalam alaikum wr wb,

No, my problem is still the same and now I have some additional ones too. How lucky I am! lol

It's just that now I don't get all the messages saying I'm now connected to broadband and that my signal strength is excellent etc. Before these msgz were popping up like 3 tims each grrr.

I forgot to scan last night.. was so tired. So will do it today inshaAllah. Good luck with your problem Muslim sis. I feel I'm doing a degree in pc repair here. :D

For a screenshot, get the screen you want to take a picture of and press the button on your keyboard:

Prt Sc
Sys Rq


It might be different if you have big keys on your keyboard etc. It's in the middle of insert and number lock. You just press it and you think nothing will've happened, infact it has. Go to any program you would like the screenshot to be in, paint for example and paste it (you can use Ctrl+v). Then just save the image, go to an image hosting site, I use http://www.imageshack.us, browse for the picture, resize the picture to 640x480 (message boards, as we are on one), then copy the link by Hotlink for forums (1) and paste it here.

Do you know how to do a system restore? If not post what operating system you use.

If you use Windows XP or older, go to start, click run and type in msconfig when the prompt comes up select system restore. Pick a date that is before your problem started. Follow the prompts.

I think MS adds an anti virus program to her PC it will just make it go even slower due to the RAM on the PC.

asalam alaikum wr wb Asma sis,


I scanned my pc and deleted the detected problems. Two (in the snapshot) didn't delete and before I could ask you what to do about them I accidently lost the page. :'(

I also tried playing vid after that but it's still the same.

Walekum assalam wa rahamtullah wa barkatuhu sis,

that was horrible. actually the vulnerabilities need to be deleted . to have the effect on the comp , its like if it was not deleted then - the comp was only scanned and nothing else was done. (u would have to do it again)

asalam alaikum wr wb sis,

I did scan it again. There was a strange message after I deleted the other vulnerabilities. It said these vulnerabilities (or some other word) have been deleted or they may remain? Something to that effect. However on the second scan they didn't show up in the results so it means they were deleted. But the two I posted still remain and there was no option to delete them. :?

Under the first of the two vulnerabilites remaining there was a link (more info about this vulnerability and it's elimination) for more info about it which I clicked on. It opened a page with all sorts of info about microsoft windows packages. It was too confusing. I will scan again and send you a snapshot of that page.
Thank you my dear sis for your ongoing help and patience. May Allah shower you with tons and tons of His blessing and mercy. Ameen.

I'm going to make you a thank you card. :p (No, no, it's ok I want to!) ;D


wa alaikum asalam wr wb.


Oh and if I need to get that VGA card (I think that's what it's called) where do I buy it from and how much will it cost. Also will I be able to install it myself? JazakAllahu Khair.

I don't know how it's started working all of a sudden, except by the help of Allah. The only change I'd made was doing a systems restore at the suggestion of Serene sis when my pc stopped working altogether. Lol, alhumdulillah! I hope it stays this way inshaAllah. :statisfie
