Hello and welcome :)

Well that is most unfortunate that your computer is really really slow :)

Are you running an antiVIRUS program, first of all? :)

Well you really need an antivirus program. How old is this machine and how long has it not had an antivirus?

Why did you uninstall it?

Do you think you may be infected?

Hi -

First step - Start cleaning out your system -

Download and install CCleaner slim

  • CCleaner slim
    right-click on the downloaded file "ccsetup234_slim.exe" and choose "Run as administrator" and install the application.
  • Keep the default installation folder "C:\Program Files\CCleaner"
  • Click finish when done and close ALL PROGRAMS including your Web Browser
  • Start the CCleaner program.
  • Click on Registry and Uncheck Registry Integrity so that it does not run (basically the very top, uncheck it)
  • Click back to Cleaner and under SYSTEM uncheck the Memory Dumps and Windows Log Files
  • Click on Run Cleaner button on the bottom right side of the program.
  • Click OK to any prompts
    Note, this will remove cookies as well so if you do want to keep them then uncheck them before running it.

Hmm. It probably didn't work because you were infected already unfortunately. Unless you mean a paid AV that expired. There are a few great free options out there, such as Avira, MSE, and Avast!.

That being said, please read the following and head on over to get your machine cleaned up, and feel free to link back to this post so that your helper can read a little background, also please include any other pertinent information:

Please read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete. Then post a NEW topic here.

One of the expert helpers there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.

Please note that it may take 48 hours or more for you to receive a response in the malware removal forum, as it is often busy at times. Please do not reply to your own post asking for help unless it's been more than 48 hours since you originally posted, as this can make it appear as though you are being helped and take longer for you to get help.

If you are unable to do all or any of the steps in the link to the directions above, just post your problem into the forum I gave you a link to anyway and someone will be able to assist you.

After posting your new post make sure under options that you select Track this topic and choose one of the Email options so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.

Thank you :)
