Hello, this is the first time I ever posted
I am running windows Vista. My computer runs extremely slowly on startup. If I run Spybot s & d, the system locks up for ten minutes, then spybot will run, find nothing, and the computer will begin running normally. If I run Mcaffee anti-virus, it will typically delete 7-10 items, and the computer will run normally. I found a hidden file in my recycle bin, and I suspect it is the source of the infection. I cannot delete or open it, even after changing the ownership. Any suggestions?
