  1. Hello, my performance has been getting steadily slower lately. I'm thinking it has something to do with spyware / malware or a virus. I followed the eight steps and am posting the logs, any help would be great. Thanks!

    Uninstall Spy Sweeper
    Uninstall SuperAntiSpyware
    Uninstall Norton
    Run the Norton Removal tool

    Install Avira free AntiVirus, and run a full scan ;)

    Alright, I got rid of Spysweeper, um I don't have Norton...and with SUPERantispyware I thought I should keep it because it was in the eight steps or should I get rid of it? With antivirus I have Trend Micro...should I really get rid of it? I thought it was pretty decent.

    Avira is better
    By the way you do have Norton, as listed starting with Windows in your log
    So run the tool ;)
