Computer speed really slow

By Suhsam
May 3, 2009
  1. Earlier my laptop was affected by malware that resulted because of which i couldnot open the task manager, change registery, use command prompt, view folder options under the tools bar in windows explorer. This was fixed yesterday when while following the 8 steps i ran the anti malware scan(log1).

    Today i decided to complete the 8 steps as the computer speed was really slow. Here are the logfiles

    No virus was detected during scan by AVG free

    Hello Suhsam

    Please download Combofix:
    http://subs.geekstogo.com/ComboFix.exe

    And save to the desktop.


    Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into it:
    Name the file as CFScript
    and Save it on the desktop

    Once saved, refering to the picture above, drag CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe.

    Combofix will create a logfile and display it after your computer has rebooted. Usually located in c:\combofix.txt, please attach it to your next post

    Note:
    Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall

    Sounds good :)

    Now your computer problems are solved, it is time for the clean-up procedure.
    You should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one.
    The easiest and safest way to do this is:
    Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
    Select Create a restore point, and Ok it.
    Next, go to Start > Run and type in cleanmgr
    Select the More options tab
    Choose the option to clean up system restore and OK it.

    This will remove all restore points except the new one you just created.


    Please download OTCleanIt
    Save it to desktop.
    This will remove all the tools we used to clean your computer.
    Double-click OTCleanIt.exe. Click CleanUp. Say Yes to the "Begin cleanup Process?"
    When asked if you want to proceed with the cleanup process, click Yes. Restart your computer when prompted.
    Please note. It will NOT remove Mbam, Ccleaner and SuperAntispyware.
