Malware is not the only reason that your computer operates slowly...Consider other factors such as the amount of free space on your drive...How often do you De-Fragment your drive? Do you have more than one anti-virus application running at the same time? Do you have more than one firewall running at the same time?
It could possibly be malware that the programs that you are using do not detect. If this continues, I would suggest posting a new topic in the "Am I infected, What do I do now?" thread in the security section of this forum. They are more qualified to help you diagnose malware problems. You may also be directed to post in another of the securty threads such as HighJackThis so be patient and follow their suggestions...
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?
