This forum is the place to start if you think you are infected with malware. Here we ask members to describe their infections, what actions they have taken so far and tell us what operating system they are using. Then we try to guide them along with removing the malware.
For those not wanting individual help, we have threads that list various anti-malware tools and scans which you can perform.BC's Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial AppsBC's List of Virus & Malware Resources
We have a self-help section for removing common malware. Please see the tutorials
listed in the Malware and Spyware Removal Guides
and the Spyware and Malware Removal Guides and Reading Room
For general computer slowness, browser issues, too many startup applications running, you can follow the recommendations in the pinned sticky: Slow Computer/Browser? Check here first; it may not be malware
If you look at the very top of the page you will see various tabs for Tutorials, Resources, Spyware Removal, Startup and File Databases and a tab for the BC Home Page Welcome: Are you new to Bleeping Computer?
where we welcome new members. At the Welcome page you will find step by step instructions to guide you with getting the type of assistance you require.
You also can continue in this thread or return here after trying some of the suggestions already mentioned for further assistance.
