My original iPad is very slow and drops the signal to websites and videos all the time now.  Does it have a virus or extra junk on it to cause this or is it just so old it can not handle the extra stuff on websites these days??

My original iPad is slow and drops web pages and videos all the time now.  Is the software just too old to handle the technology changes on the websites and video or is it a virus or junk in the iPad causing this?  I have plenty or storage left on the iPad like 18GB.  Sure would like to know.  Maybe it is just too old to handle things now? 

IIf you are running iOS 6.1.2, you could not be using the original iPad. No matter which iPad and what version, try these basic troubleshooting steeps and see if it helps with the performance.
Go to Settings>Safari>Clear History and Website Data. Then close all apps.
In order to close apps in iOS 5 or iOS 6, first tap the home button once. Then tap the home button twice and the recents tray will appear at the bottom of the screen. Tap and hold down on any app icon until it begins to wiggle. Tap the minus sign in the upper left corner of the app that you want to close. Tap the home button twice.
In order to close apps in iOS 7 or 8, you have to drag the app up from the multitasking display. Double tap the home button and you will see apps lined up going left to right across the screen. Swipe to get to the app that you want to close and then swipe "up" on the app preview thumbnail to close it.
Now reset your iPad. Reset the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.
You can also try resetting all settings. You will not lose any data, but most of the device settings will have to be entered in the settings app again. Settings>General>Reset>Reset all Settings.

    Also, try temporarily disabling your security software.

    Hi
    First of all I would recommend checking the HDD for errors HDD malfunction might affect the computer performance you should check the HDD using the freeware toolsone of the tools which I use is the Drive Fitness Test it was posted several times here in the forum and its really great software.
    If the HDD would be ok and if no error would be detected, then I would recommend disabling some processes which are not important for you in many cases different tools would be loaded during the OS boot procedure and such tools run in the background which slow down the OS.
    Start msconfig and check the Startup Tab
    Here you will see all the software which is loaded at the beginning you can uncheck not necessary tools
    Note: if you are not sure what the single process means, use google and search in internet for more details otherwise dont disable this.

  • HT1338 Is there a Mac System Clean-up? My computer is running very slow and freeze all the times

    I don't know why my computer is running very slow and keeps freezing all the times.  It would take at least 2-3 min to load up after the not using it for 5 min.  For instance when I type my paper or doing anything on the computer and leave for a fews min after come back it would not start and the icon keeps on spinning.
    Thanks

    Pretty much all "clean-up" utilities will just make things worse.
    You need to determine what it is that is causing the problem.
    How much RAM do you have?
    For the following, report what you get when the system is running slow and beachballing.
    Open Activity Monitor (Utilities folder) and click on System Memory tab at the bottom of the screen. What does it say for Page Outs?
    Also, at the top of the window, select All Processes. Click on the %CPU header until the arrow points down. Anything pop up at the top of the list that is using a very high percentage of CPU?
    What you describe can be caused by incompatible third-party software. Boot into Safe mode and see if the problems still exist. Safe mode will be a little slower than normal, but you shouldn't see the system freeze up.

  • Iphone 4 has been very slow and sometimes doesn;t respond to touch, anyone have the same problem,also discolouration just behind the battery icon, could anyone help

    since update ios 7 my iphone 4 has been giving me trouble. sometimes will not respond to touch, is very slow when texting, and battery runs down very quickly when not in use and all apps are closed, has anyone had the same problem

    Basic troubleshooting from the User's Guide is reset, restart, restore (first from backup then as new).  Try each of these in order until the issue is resolved.

  • HT4859 Why is my backup to my new iphone taking so long. Ive downloaded all the apps, pictures, all settings are back, all contacts are there, all itunes and videos are there. What does Icloud have left to download?

    I just got a new replacement Iphone 4s and am trying to back up my IPhone 4s from Icloud and it still says that it is restoring the phone. The issue is that its taken a total of maybe 6 hours and all my apps have been downloaded, all photos have been restored, all settings and contacts restored, all itunes music and videos have been restored. Question is, it still says that the phone is restoring, so what exactly is it still restoring??

    That is ironic, but apparently Apple server is "locked" for restore process for three days. During that time it may say it is restoring even past the actual restore time. I have seen where someone successfully stopped that process, by changing apple id password, and where that didn't help to stop process. But 3 days from restore start, that should time out.
    Credit goes to Randers, he is the one who gave that info about three days, but I was also able to verify that myself.

  • Since downloading i0s 8 the mail function on iPad is very slow and blocks writing new messages when it 'checks for new mail'

    Problems with speed of email and writing emails because when iPad is checking for mail it prevents writing emails unlike the previous software version.
    Will this be fixed in future software updates.

    I wasn't sure how to troubleshoot it.  Tried to see if I could revert to i0S 7 but that is no longer possible.  I received the i0S 8.1 update yesterday - installed that in the hope it would fix the issues - shut down iPad afterwards - left it for a while but same issues remain.  Makes using the email a pain whereas it used to be seamless.  Any suggestions?

  • SAP SNC Portal DCM screen performance is very slow and times out

    Friends,
    SAP SNC Portal DCM screen performance is very slow and times out when user trying to pull data using customer location
    What are the cleanup activites we can do to improve the overall SNC performance ?
    We did open OSS message but so far no reply from SAP , Is there any one faced performance issue ?
    User/vendor is complaining about slowness , query is standard SAP and its taking more time  .(table - /LIME/NTREE) , It looks like number of data are huge causing this problem related to LIME/NTREE table. What are the options to improve the performance ?
    Thanks in Advance
    Hanuman Choudhary

    hi Team,
    Pls . note the advise from SAP below, IS there any have experiance of archiveing /LIME records ?
    Please advise how to start & what the steps in archiving ?
    Thanks in advance
    I had a look at the DCM query performance in PH1 system and figured out
    that most of the time is spent at the LIME layer of database. The
    following LIME tables are having far too many entries and is causing
    the bottleneck during the query execution.
    /LIME/NLOG_QUAN - 38,165,467
    /LIME/PN_ITEM - 19,116,518
    /LIME/PN_ITEM_TB - 19,154,124
    These tables are storing the historical information about LIME(stock)
    updates. Since these table grow with each change/update of stock
    information, it will slow down the performance of the system over a
    period of time. And to avoid the slow responses, the tables should
    ideally be archived on a periodic basis to keep the data volume as
    minimal as possible. You may have to discuss with the Business to
    determine the number of days of LIME record you would want to retain
    in the system. I would strongly recommend you to consider the LIME
    archival retaining the minimum days (<=60 days) of historical
    information. You can find more information about the Lime Archival
    in the Sap Help link:
    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_scm2007/helpdata/en/44/2a83121dde23d1e10000000a1553f7/frameset.htm.
    Kindly get in touch with your BASIS consultant for the LIME archival.
    The application performance should definitely improve after the LIME
    archival. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me in case you
    require any further clarification in this regards.
    Best Regards

    As a extra precaution I would copy the user file folders of Music, Documents, Pictures etc to another external drive and disconnect, just in case.
    Always maintain TWO backups of your data at all times, since your messing with one, you need another until your back at two again.

    Either add a credit card or maybe another payment method will work
    or
    Create a NEW account using these instructions. Make sure you follow the instructions. Many do not and if you do not you will not get the None option. You must use an email address that you have not used with Apple before.

    Hello,
    I have very similar problem. Suddenly Firefox stopped work - It was working few days after ver. 4 update. I was looking everywhere for some solution but nothing worked.
    - uninstalled firewall - did not worked
    - added full exception for Firefox into the firewall - did not worked
    - Firefox reinstall - did not worked
    - Firefox complete reinstall (registry included) - did not worked
    - IPv6 diseabling - did not worked
    - diferent proxy options (no proxy, system proxy, autodetect proxy) - did not worked
    - new firefox profile - did not worked
    - complete coockies, history... deleted - did not worked
    - there is only one solution which partly works - I have used public proxy addresses for Firefox but the ping is (750ms), down/up (0.8MB/0.2MB originaly (10MB/2MB) and yes I have tried different proxy server from different countries from my included.
    - IE is working perfectly and without proxy
    - other companies browser - did not worked too
    - only IE is working
    - I have used three different malware, trojans, spyware, anti-virus programs and nothing
    It seems to me as hopeless situation or very clever move from Microsoft, I am forced to use IE - at least this works
    Any ideas, solutions?
    System Windows 7, firewall Comodo Internet security

    wen6275,
    It looks like you're actually using a camera or phone to take a photo of your monitor.
    That's not what is commonly known as a "screen shot". 
    It looks like you're on a Mac.  Hitting Command+Shift+3 places a capture of the contents of your entire monitor on your Desktop; hitting Command+Shift+4 will give you a cross-hairs cursor for you to select just the portion you want to capture.
    I'm mentioning this because I fear I'm not construing your original post correctly when you type "I am working with a large files [sic], currently it has 149 layers, all of which are high resolution photographs", so I'm wondering if there's some similar use of your own idiosyncratic nomenclature in your description of your troublesome file.
    Perhaps I'm just having a major senior moment myself, but I'm utterly unable to imagine such a file.  Would you mind elaborating?

  • My ipad is very slow. Already rebooted it and still has the problem.

    I have an ipad 3 and istalled Ios6 three weeks ago. It had no performance problem. Today, the ipad is running slow. When typing, it takes a while until the letters fo to the text boxes. When using intensive touch screen apps, it takes 2 sseconds to move something. Even typing the access password, it slows down. I already rebooted it, closed evry app but it continues to underperform. It's really very slow and cant be used in any app.

    Not normal. Take it to an Apple Store for evaluation.

  • Cover flow is very slow and crashes on iOS 5 or is it just my iPod Touch?

    Basically, everytime I use cover flow on my music and scroll around it laggs and crashes. The simple solution is to not use it I know but I'm just wondering if you guys are having the same problem.

    Same here on my 3GS. Found that restoring a second time the phone helps,no more crash,but still very slow and freezing,compare to flawless response on previous IOS3-4.
    Note that looking at diagnostics reports,it have lot's of "LowMemory" and "awdd" messages with dates corresponding to the times is was using cover flow.
    Even outside of cover flow,my 3GS registers lags corresponding "LowMemory" reports quite often.
    I enable then sharing to Apple of those diagnostics on the phone,hope they fix this soon!
