i've been having trouble playing music on my laptop...it will slow down and distort.
whenever i use iTunes, it will send my CPU usage all the way up; even if it is the only application used.

i've quit applications, cleared out my hard drive.
i ran disk-cleanup and defragmented twice.
i've ran Spybot and Windows Defender.
however, when i run Ad-Aware, it stalls out around 150000 and C:/WINDOWS/system32/inetsrv
i opened that folder and found nothing.

this is driving me crazy!!! my laptop hates me :)
please help!

Hello Janice

Have you ruled out any virus or trojan infections? I would recommend an online scan at one of the following (do a full system scan). The reason for doing an online scan is that some infections will disable your Antivirus installed on your PC to hide it's presence.

If any infections are found, save the log from the scan and post it back here:
eTrust Antivirus Web Scanner
http://www3.ca.com/s...sinfo/scan.aspx
(if prompted, please *allow* Active X and the install of software - this is needed to scan your system)
It will take a while to download the updates needed, and then you'll be presented with a screen to scan your system.

Ewido free online scanner
http://www.ewido.net/en/onlinescan/

Trend Micro (PC-cillin) - Free on-line Scan
http://housecall.antivirus.com

Panda's Active Scan
http://www.pandasoft.../activescan.htm
................
If that doesn't solve the Adaware problem, here is my list of things to try

First, do a disk cleanup to clear the browser cache and other unnecessary files.

Go to Start > Run and type in the box: Cleanmgr
Wait while Windows scans your system for files to delete.
Make sure these 3 are checkmarked and press *ok* to delete them.

Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files
Recycle Bin


If you are still having a problem, there can be a number of reasons for this issue. Please try these steps next to see if any resolve the problem.

From the Ad-Aware FAQ

Q: Ad-Aware freezes while performing a scan.

A: There are a number of possible reasons behind this problem. To correct:

* First, update to Build 1.06 and download the latest definition file if you have not done so.
* Second, it is highly recommended that you run a disk defragmentation on your computer, then a thorough “Check? or “Scan Disk? depending on your Windows version. Try scanning in safe mode.
* Third, start Ad-Aware scan from the Windows command line. Do as follows:
o Click "Start", then "Run". Next, type the text shown below (including the quotation marks and with the same spacing as shown) for your version of Ad-Aware SE:
"C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Professional\Ad-Aware.exe" /full +procnuke
"C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Plus\Ad-Aware.exe" /full +procnuke
"C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Personal\Ad-Aware.exe" +procnukep
o Click “OK?.
o Note: The path above (between the quotes) is the default location of Ad-Aware SE. If you installed your Ad-Aware to a different directory, adjust the path accordingly. For Ad-Aware SE Personal, when the GUI launches, click “Start?, then “Full System Scan?. Click “Next?, then “OK?.
o When the scan is complete, select “Next?. In the “Scanning Results? window, select the "Scan Summary" tab. Check the box next to each "target family" you wish to remove, then click “Next?, then OK?.
* If you still have problems, cancel before the scan reaches the point of stalling -- for example, after 20 objects are detected. Click “Cancel? on your log file. Remove any objects you want and rescan. Again, stop the scan before it reaches the point of stalling and remove any additional objects. Then try a full scan without stopping it. This should work for you now.

If still no joy, try these steps:

Ad-Aware Freezing Issue
http://www.lavasofts...783&hl=Freezing

One other observation is that certain security software all running at the same time can cause conflicts. A number of Adaware users who also are running the beta version of SpySweeper have reported that disabling SpySweeper during an Adaware scan has resolved that conflict.
To temporarily disable SpySweeper:

Open it click >Options over to the left then >Program Options >Uncheck "load at windows startup".
Over to the left click "shields" and uncheck all there.
Uncheck "home page shield".
Uncheck "automatically restore default without notification".[/quote]
Reboot your computer and try scanning again with Adaware.

Let us know how you make out on all of the above, or if any of those steps resolve the problem.

i had a virus that VirusScan picked up and i deleted it...

a weird thing is, many of the other online scanners stalled on me??
however, Ad-Aware is still stalling at c://windows/system32/inetsrv...what gives?!
::sigh::

i've ran disk cleanup and defragemented.
i don't have spysweeper.

i have no objects found before Ad-Aware stalls.

thank you again!

Nothing exceptional from the Panda scan - mostly just cookies

Did you empty the TIF and temporary files folders?

Let's look at a diagnostic log from HijackThis:

You've got an awful lot of Security programs all running realtime protection and that may be causing a conflict. Plus I see two AVs running? AVG & McAfee? Both of those may need to be turned off to do a scan. Also Spybot's teatimer and Windows Defender have realtime protection. All those running at once may be causing slowdowns.

One thing to check - can you reboot to safe mode and scan with Ad-Aware. Is it able to complete a scan in safe mode?

You can usually do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping F8 until a menu appears. Highlight Safe Mode and hit enter.

Keep your programs if you like, just don't have them all running realtime protection at startup. So, if Mcafee is your primary AV and you have AVG on board for backup, turn OFF the resident protection in AVG while McAfee is on.

Teatimer might be slowing the computer too, if you have Windows Defender running realtime then turn off teatimer.

Did you try the CHKDISK step in this instruction?:
