Refering to Taskmanager/ Processes, should firefox.exe UAC Visualisation be DISABLED?

Posted

I'm trying to understand why my pc slows down so much; as I type this I have a 2 second delayed response. I reduced the data on my HDD to 50% of 1TB, ran a defrag, and things worked as they should for 4 days; in this time I did not switch off the machine. Multiple virus checks were run, no probs. Then to switch off & on the machine and I'm back to a 2-3 second retardation, depending how many webpages are open. I'm hoping the prob could be with the UAC Visualization. Any ideas welcome.

My specs are Win 7, 64x, i5, 8GB RAM, with a simple standard sized monitor. No gaming is done on this machine.

Open registry editor (regedit.exe) and look for the following key: MenuShowDelay.

Its default value is 400 (milliseconds). Changing it to 0 will eliminate any delay when displaying a menu.

Have you tried a scan with https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/ if not please do so and see if that helps. You will have to google every entry found to figure out to save it or delete it. Or post in Malwarebytes forum for help.

UAC should not be causing that but you can turn it off to check : https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/4820/how-to-really-completely-disable-uac-on-windows-7/ (((OOPS WRONG UAC, my bad)))

Are you having issues in other programs and/or with Windows 7 ?? If having problems with Windows 7 can try : Repair System Registry and Files

(FOR DOING Above & Below - WINDOWS All OTHER VERSIONS - Use Search To Find Command Prompt ** Enter CMD.exe to Find COMMAND PROMPT Then Right Click & RUN AS ADMIN)

To run the SFC command use the Windows key + X keyboard shortcut to open the Power User menu and select Command Prompt (Admin). Type "SFC /SCANNOW" (without quotes or copy/paste) and press Enter. For more information on using SFC, please refer to the Microsoft KB: Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files


Run the Windows Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) and System File Checker (SFC) tools as Administrator. The DISM and SFC tools scan the integrity of the Windows image and all protected system files replaces corrupted, damaged and incorrect versions. (FOR DOING Above & Below - WINDOWS All OTHER VERSIONS - Use Search To Find Command Prompt ** Enter CMD.exe to Find COMMAND PROMPT Then Right Click & RUN AS ADMIN)

Windows 10 To run the DISM command use the Windows key + X keyboard shortcut to open the Power User menu, then select Command Prompt (Admin). Type "DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth" (without quotes or copy/paste) and press Enter. While running DISM you may notice the process will appear to pause at 20%. After a few minutes the operation will continue.

It could be a memory leak....

People on Windows 7 are having issues with new releases of Firefox with the security changes for Extensions and Addons if any please disable them. You may have to move to the Extended Release https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/all/

Try : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration
