  1. Hi....

    I am Attila

    You can guess... I have a problem.

    And I need your help.

    My system is slow, and I just recovered from some naughty virus attacs.
    I still can not change the desktop background.
    Copiing few MB files from one directory to an other takes 30 minutes.
    In general, everything works, but sometimes very slow.

    Any idea?

    I think some of you may like to se the Hijackthis log...

    So... how can one go bout this?

    Thanks !!!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Go HERE and follow as many of the instructions as you can.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments intio this thread, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Attila's problems

    Hi

    I will attach the Hijackthis log.

    I think you will see what is wrong.
    (The system is slow, and can not change the desktop background)

    Sometimes AVG and NOD32 running same time, but the result is the same if I turn them off in the Taskmanager.

    Please help if possible

    Thanks.

    First, you shouldn`t be running more than one antivirus programme. This will slow your system down and can cause conflicts. Uninstall one of them.

    Second, you haven`t followed the instructions I gave you. Please do so.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs, only after you`ve completed the instructions.

    Regards Howard :)

    Homework

    Hello Howard,

    Thanks for the fast reply...

    OK I admit, I was hoping that someone looking the HJ log and spot the "thing" then telling me to delete the xyzwhatever.exe virusfile then that is it....

    Well... There is no way to avoid to make my homework.
    It will take for a while.
    I will be back as soon I manage it all.

    Thanks for now...

    ps It is reassuring to see that there is a professional attitude here and not a 'let's have a go' give it a try thing !
