Hey, I've noticed my computer started to lag more and more, and I don't know what's wrong. I've run my anti-virus, my anti-spyware, I have a firewall, I've run defrag, and disk cleanup, and I've deleted all the programs I don't use, yet the problem still persists. I've also noticed an odd folder recently that's shown up on my hard drive, where it lists the other normal folders like Program Files and such. This one's called '93a25b1aff81f7d3711982dd' and it contains a text document called 'msxml4-KB927978-enu'. I could be over-reacting but that doesn't look like a normal folder name. There's also something called avg7qt that's a NeroShowTime.Files7.dat file, so I figure it's from when I had Nero installed on my computer, but I uninstalled that program a while ago, so is it safe to delete? I've also noticed that when I shut down something starting with 'IeShaZ' shuts down too. I ran Disk Cleanup about a week ago and it mentioned that some of the system files had been replaced, unfortunately I couldn't find the restore disk, and I said to leave it alone but then this started happening. What's going on?!
