Hi everyone,

I have been having some hassles lately with my laptop running slow, taking a long time on startup and shutdown, and other problems which have caused shutdown and disc check to run. I have run my anti-virals, disc cleanup, defrg's, etc, and not a lot seems to have improved. So today I opened my task anager and decided to check all the running processes against Bleeping's database. To my absolute horror, I have discovered about 55 processes running and only about half or less could be verified as supposed to be there. There were quite a few that had no info on Bleeping's database and a hell of a lot that I found to be a mix of trojans, worms, hijackers, etc.

What do I do now? I am not a very computer savvy person, hating to do just about anything that I don't have step-by-step instructions for and always worried I might do something disastrous. I thought I had taken good care to keep my computer clean, running regular virus scans etc, and I have AntiVir as my active realtime guard. Not only do I not know how these headache makers got on to my computer, I have no idea how to get rid of them.

PLEASE somebody, help me.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
