Hi why don't you ask a moderator to reopen your HJT log thread? This one http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/160327/hjt-log-dominoexe-and-winlogonexe/ it looks like you should get it sorted out. :thumbsup:

Start with cleaning your HDD. The easiest, fastest and most thorough way to do that is with a program such as Ccleaner.

Scan for malware using the two free programs in the links below.
If the two programs above find anything other than "cookies", post their logs back here.

Defragment your HDD

Having a lot of programs running at startup will slow startup and unnecessarily use a lot of computer resources. You only need your firewall and antivirus program in startup. Programs such as media players, Adobe Reader, Windows office programs, Instant Messengers, etc. do not need to run at startup and will make themselves available when needed.
Best to control what programs run at startup by using the settings in each program. There are also free programs that will help you with this such as WinPatrol. http://www.winpatrol.com/

There are many things that can cause a "slow computer". Here is a useful link to help you.

EDIT: correct spelling

btdna.exe is the BitTorrent peer-to-peer content distribution network. Disable unless you know you want to use BitTorrent, since this program may cause excessive network usage. The DNA program can be uninstalled through Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs.


let's run a check with MBAM


No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
