My HP Windows 7 laptop suddenly, 100% out of the blue, started having bad problems 7 days ago. For no known reason to me (I didn't visit any fishy websites, didn't install any new programs, didn't download any new files). The computer will only load up the typical home screen 1/2 the time. Other times it just sites in a loading screen, attempts to scan my hard disk (but never finishes), etc. Everytime I've luckily gotten the typical Windows 7 homepage to load it'll go into roughly 1 minute periods of normal functionality...followed by 3-10 and sometimes infinite periods of freezing, Windows explorer not responding, and nothing happening.
 
I have no clue what has caused this. I've since been able to download and install CCleaner, HiJackThis, and avast! I can't even a minimal avast! scan without it freezing and never finishing the scan. I can't defragment my drives without it freezing and stopping.
 
Here's a copy of my HiJackThis log. Perhaps somethings is claringly bad in this. I have no clue.

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps.
===

HijackThis doesn't handle your version of Windows well. In your case I need to see a final DDS Log.
I suggest you remove HijackThis using the Add/Remove Programs list.

Please download and run this DDS Scanning Tool. Nothing will be deleted. It will just give me some additional information about your system.

Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links, if you no longer have it available. Save it to your desktop.

1: DDS.scr (Not recommended if you use Chrome to download this .scr file. Use the other options.)
2: DDS.pif
3: DDS.COM

Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
Notepad will open with the results.
Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run.

dds_scr.gif

Please just paste the contents of the DDS.txt log in your next post. DO NOT attach the log.
===

Third party programs if not up to date can be the cause of infiltration an infection.

Please run this security check for my review.

Download Security Check by screen317 from here.
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
===

Search and delete the AdWare, PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) installed on your computer.

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your Desktop.
  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Delete tab follow the prompts.
  • A log file will automatically open after the scan has finished.
  • Please post the content of that log file with your next answer.
  • You can find the log file at C:\AdwCleaner[Rn].txt (n is a number).
Please paste the logs in your next reply, DO NOT ATTACH THEM
Let me know what problem persists.
