Everyone I am new here so I thank you for allowing me to be a part of the community. I do have a problem which is how I found you all. Problem being that after being out in cyberspace for awhile I noticed that my computer was acting sluggish so I thought that I would restore to a earlier restore point. It started restoring as usual but got hung up at around 80% finished so I rebooted and started again just to see that it did the same thing. I feel that I picked up something and it is waiting to wreck havoc on my computer at anytime. I seemed to be able to do certain task offline but when online everything gets sluggish again. I tried emptying my cache and deleting my cookies but still the same results. So I was just wondering if someone here had an answer to the problem without me having to reformat my hard drive. This by the way is a laptop computer that I am speaking of. Thanks very much for your time and help in advance if any.

Hi Bocca 3

Welcome to BleepingComputer.

At this stage, I think it would be a good idea to run a few scans to make sure your laptop is clean. Go here and run through a few-


When you are satisfied you are clean, make a new Restore Point then go to Disk Cleanup and remove all old ones as they could be infected.

Let us know how you get on.
