Hi,

I clicked on the ATF Cleaner link and it seems my firewall is stopping me from accessing it - it just says "Ad blocked here by SPF".

Also, I can't seem to download Kasperksy - when I go to the Kaspersky site, it says it may not run successfully with any other antivirus program is running, and the Accept tab is greyed out. I've stopped my Avast antivirus program, but it still doesn't change anything.

Hi,
I disabled the Sunbelt firewall but still got the Ad blocked here by SPF message when trying to run the ATF program. I've now uninstalled the Sunbelt firewall using Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel, but am still getting the message! :thumbsup:

Is there anything else I can do to remove the Sunbelt firewall - it seems to be stopping me from running the checks.

Thanks.

Ok, I managed to run the ATF Cleaner by googling it and downloading it from another site.

However, I still can't run Kasperskys, even after stop the provider for all the various protections (network shield, instant messaging, etc).

Will I need to uninstall it in order to run Kasperskys?

Hi,

Ok, I've run Kaspersky and the Detected log file is below (it didn't find any malware):

Scan
----
Scanned: 222533
Detected: 0
Untreated: 0
Start time: 21/09/2008 18:38:43
Duration: 08:51:35
Finish time: 22/09/2008 03:30:18


Detected
--------
Status Object
------ ------


Events

As there don't appear to be any viruses or malware on my computer, I'm wondering if there might be something physically wrong with it that's causing it to slow down. Perhaps I'm best off just getting a new pc?

Thanks for all your help, Kahdah

Yes it doesn't seem malware related.
Maybe before bying a new pc have a tech shop or someone check you hard drive.
Seems it may be going out.
That can cause many issues.
