  1. Could someone please look over my logs and see if there are any issues I should fix? This computer is a 2 year old laptop running Vista. Thank you and Merry Christmas!


    the gmer.log file could not be uploaded but it was empty anyway.

    Happy Holiday! But I have to be Scrooge here.
    New malware forum rule - all logs have to be PASTED!

    I can tell you why the laptop is slow. You have way too many processes running! If they start on boot, most will continue to run in the background. After you surf for a while and gather temporary internet files, you're going to slow down. Your startup will be slow as will the shutdown. Please understand that in this forum, we address the 'slow' issue when it's caused by malware entries.

    It does not appear that you are doing regular maintenance as I see some old versions of programs still on the system. I can check you for malware, get rid of some of the 'junk' like the AskBar and see if there is any actual malware. But you are still going to be slow unless you take processes off of Startup, uninstall programs you're not using.

    If you want to go on, please paste the logs in and include the additional log from DDS named Attached.txt.
    GMER logs aren't 'empty.'
