  1. Hello ppl.

    Recently the Laptop has decided to crap itself and work really really slow.
    Its that slow that i can only use it in safe mode (which i am in now) to try and download malware removals and all that kinda stuff.

    I have tried using a registry clean, malwarebytes Anti-Malware, GMER, TFC to try and help free up the computer but its still reall really slow.

    Can anyone please help me to fix this annoying problem and restore my computer to its working state please?????

    Thanks, Broden,

    Ok so i followed the steps and attatched the malarebytes anti-malware log, the DDS.txt and attach.txt.

    But for some reason i could finish the GMER scan because AVG interupted the scan, even though apparently it doesnt work in safe mode so i dont know what to do about that?

    Hopefully this helps and we can fix this crappy problem.

    So now what lol???

    Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

    **Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
    1. Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
    2. Close any open browsers.
    3. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
      • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
      • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
      NOTE1. If Combofix asks you to install Recovery Console, please allow it.
      NOTE 2. If Combofix asks you to update the program, always do so.
      • Close any open browsers.
      • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
      • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
      • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.
    4. Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    5. When finished, it will produce a report for you.
    6. Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt"
    **Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

    Make sure, you re-enable your security programs, when you're done with Combofix.

    DO NOT make any other changes to your computer (like installing programs, using other cleaning tools, etc.), until it's officially declared clean!!!

    Thanks for that.

    Ok so i followed the recent instructions and have attatched the combofix log.

    Dont know if it'll make any difference or not but i did all the combofix procedure in safe mode.

    My computer is not as slow as before but still not as good as it originally was so is there any other things i can do to free and fasten it up again?

    Thanks again.

    Running Combofix in safe mode is fine for now.

    I strongly recommend, you uninstall Eusing Free Registry Cleaner.

    Uninstall Combofix:
    Go Start > Run [Vista users, go Start>"Start search"]
    Type in:
    Combofix /Uninstall
    Note the space between the "Combofix" and the "/Uninstall"
    Click OK (Vista users - press Enter).
    Restart computer.


    Download OTL to your Desktop.

    * Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
    * Under the Custom Scan box paste this in:

    drivers32 /all
    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    %systemroot%\system32\*.dll /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\Tasks\*.job /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\system32\user32.dll /md5
    %systemroot%\system32\ws2_32.dll /md5

    * Click the Quick Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
    • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows: OTL.txt and Extras.txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
    • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post them back here.
