Hello Budapest... thanks for your response. I did follow the instructions and below is the log requested from SUPERAntiSpyware. Nothing was found it seems. Also, I have not ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware today, so I am not sure if I have the same... I can run it if you want. Also, I should mention the main symptom, when on the internet, any browser, it just seems really really slow.

Please print out and follow these instructions: "How to use SDFix". This program is for Windows 2000/XP ONLY.
When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
  • Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any real time protection programs before performing a scan.
  • When done, the SDFix report log will open in notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • If SDFix is unable to run after rebooting from Safe Mode, run SDFix in either Mode, and type F, then press Enter for it to finish the final stage and produce the report.
  • Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply.
  • Be sure to renable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.
-- If the computer has been infected with the VirusAlert! malware warning from the clock and the Start Menu icons or drives are not visible, open the SDFix folder, right-click on either the XP_VirusAlert_Repair.inf or W2K VirusAlert_Repair.inf (depending on your version of Windows) and select Install from the Context menu. Then reboot to apply the changes.

Please update Malwarebytes, run another quick-scan and post the new log.

I have Symantec Antivirus version 10.1.5.5000

One thing I did notice this last couple of days... IE is faster than Firefox, not lighting fast, but you can work with IE, Firefox is really really slow. I am now wonderin if I am just paranoid... :thumbsup:

I'm pretty sure that Symantec will disable the Security Centre, which is why Malwarebytes keeps reporting it.

I'm not sure about the Firefox thing, you could try reinstalling it (backup your bookmarks first).
