I have a DELL INSPIRON running on Windows 7. My problem is this. Lately (meaning the last 7 days) my computer started running slow on internet and offline. After i got rid most of my files (copied them to an external drive) and did a full system scan with NORTON, still is slow. NORTON found 4 viruses (2 heuristics, 1 simple and a yontoo) and succesfully removed them.
Is there something else I can do before having to do a FORMAT?

Hello abi,

You can try StartUpLight.

StartUpLite provides a safe, easy, and efficient way to eliminate unnecessary applications that start when you turn on your computer.

By disabling or removing unnecessary entries, StartUpLite can dramatically shorten your startup time with just a few clicks of the mouse. Stop waiting and start computing.


Let me know if it helps you. ;)

Please run the following scanner and send back the logs.

Download DDS from one of the locations below and save to your Desktop
dds.scr
dds.com


Temporarily disable any script blocker if your Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware has it.
How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

Once downloaded you can disconnect from the Internet and disable your Ant-Virus temporarily if needed.
Then double click dds.scr or dds.com to run the tool.
Click the Run button if prompted with an Open File - Security Warning dialog box.
A black DOS console should open and run for a moment.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
  • DDS.txt
  • Attach.txt
  • Save both reports to your desktop
  • Please include the following logs in your next reply: DDS.txt and Attach.txt
    You can ignore the note about zipping the Attach.txt file in most cases.

First to say thank you in advance both of you and sorry it took so long to respond but I had a lot of work.
Thank you Dashke but i decided to take AdvancedSetup's path.

I must say that i did a scan on ESET also and did find some more threats which were resolved and computer is looking much better but not as it was.
I downloaded DDS and created those two files. I attach them on the message and will be waiting for response. Maybe i will not be fast on the time i will take to follow your instructions so please be patient.

Attached Files

Yes the computer is infected.

I would suggest following the advice from the topic here Available Assistance for Possibly Infected Computers and having one of the Experts assist you with looking into your issue.


Thanks
