    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You have not renamed HijackThis.exe as per the instructions. See HERE.

    Your HJT log looks clean. However, this doesn`t necessarily mean your system is clean.

    If you suspect a malware infection, then you should follow the link as given by bushwhacker. Please note: Because you`re running Vista, some of the tools etc may not work. If that happens, just skip to the next step.

    Try and post Combofix, AVG Antispyware logs and a fresh HJT log. Also include the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    well combofix wouldnt work for me even thought i have 4Gb's of ram and 125GB left on my harddrive i got 'not enough memory error'

    i followed everything in that thread except the tools that didnt work

    nothing found anything except some trackings cookies which were promptly deleted

    here is my HTJ log attached

    btw there is only 1 symptom to this virus or whatever it may be and that is when i open folders i get not responding for like 20 seconds which didnt happen for the first month and a half of me buying the system

    Your HJT log is still clean. Just because your system has slowed down, doesn`t necessarily mean it`s due to malware activity.

    Go and read this tread HERE and see if it helps.

    Regards Howard :)
