    You need to follow the Steps here: https://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html

    The HijackThis log alone is not enough. But before you run those programs, you need to do the following:

    Disable Teatimer
    You also need to take Chkdsk off of Startup: You have all the following entries:
    Go to the Control Panel> Scheduled Task> find ChkDisk and remove it from Startup.

    Once done, follow the Steps- you can ignore Step 1 since you have Symantec functioning.

    Please attach all three logs when through for review.

    Some of the above is basic maintenance and it doesn't appear that any of you are doing this. It includes: disc cleanup to remove temporary internet files, temp files. deleting Cookies and History, Error Checking and defrag.

    5. You have Viewpoint Media Player installed on your system. This program is not malware but it is foistware in that it is usually installed without the user's knowledge or approval, and for this reason I recommend you remove it. If you actually use this program, I recommend you try using safe and free alternatives such as VLC Media Player.

    The HijackThis log is clean,. If the system is running slow after the malware removal, it is because of poor maintenance and too may unnecessary startups.

    6. Due to the multitude of malware found by Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware, Please run ComboFix:
