  1. Well, I fixed my problem. Turns out all I had to do was replace my ethernet card. Now pages load faster than ever as well as download speeds from the web. My pings are A LOT better now as well. Getting less than 50ms from any decently fast website that I ping. But why couldn't anybody recommend this before
  2. I've been doing the 2992 test yesterday and tonight; it makes no difference. I'm still getting around a crappy 300kB/sec..
  3. Hmm... nobody can answer this? Are the servers just being slow?
  4. Yeah but still it doesn't explain this: ::::::::::..

  5. can someone tell me why I always get slow download test speeds? I have a 7.7 mbps connection. But, everytime I run the smart test, it always runs the small ones, like 750 kb. And it always forwards me to the next test at least 5-7 times. Is it just because the servers are slow or something? Also, most downloads from the web always seem so slow for me. Assuming i'm given enough resources, I can steadily max out my download speed through torrents or other p2p traffic.
  6. Eh? What does that have to do with anything? It's part of NOD32 antivirus, and not anything bad. Did you just try to google for 'nod32krn.exe'? I noticed there isn't a single mention of nod32krn.exe on that page. I'm fixing to scan for adware/viruses in safe mode right now. After that I'll do the online scanner as recommended above.
  7. NetMeter is a very safe and non-obtrusive program. I've been using it for a long time. http://readerror.gmxhome.de/
  8. You never heard of NOD32? Wow. I thought it was very well known everywhere.

  9. Eset NOD32 v2.70. Although it is completely disabled right now (including the kernel service)
  10. That's the program I was talking about. It doesn't seem to help much after running it, unless i'm doing something wrong.....
  11. Yes, it brought up the microsoft help and support center. Sorry, didn't copy that part, here's what it says: Explanation Windows unloads each user's profile and user's section of the registry when the user logs off. This message indicates that Windows could not unload the user's profile because a program was referencing the user's section of the registry. This locked the profile. The registry cannot unload profiles that are locked and in use. When the program that is locking the profile is no longer referencing the registry, the profile will be unloaded. ...and it just leads me t
  12. No, I don't have any external drives. I have 3 IDE hard drives and 1 NEC combo burner. Now that I think about it, I should try unplugging all of my devices (except my boot drive), and see if it makes any difference. But, I forgot to mention one very important thing that could be related to this problem. Whenever I checked the Windows Event Viewer, at the time that I shutdown, there's an event message that says the following: Source: Userenv Event: 1517 Windows saved user USER-3D75162827Admin registry while an application or service was still using the registry durin
  13. @tommie gorman: I'll scan later in safe mode to see if it picks up anything. ya never know here are my speed test results, although isn't this pretty irrelevant to my problem?: :::::::::::::::::..

  14. All right this has been plaguing me for a very long time, hopefully I can get to the bottom of it. My problem is that WinXP SP2, usually hangs for 30-60 when trying to shut down. But lately, it's been taking more than 2 minutes. It zooms quickly through the "saving settings" message but takes forever on the "windows is shutting down" message. This never happens at all when I have SP1 installed. But as soon I upgrade to SP2, I start having this problem sometime soon after. I already tried disabling all startup items, and also a few windows services I don't need, but that didn't h
