Hello all,

My XP Media system is running very slowly. I have run the following things which helped some but not enough:
AVG
Adaware2008
Spybot
ATF Cleaner
Malwarebytes

I also use Mozilla Firefox as my browser. Any help that is given is greatly appreciated

Hi,

Since when do you have those problems? Did you install something?

Could you preform a full scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and post the log in your next reply? :thumbsup:

Superbird,

To the best of my knowledge nothing was installed prior to the slow down. It was a gradual thing. Here is my log:

Hi,

Please go to Kaspersky website and perform an online antivirus scan.

Note: If you are using Windows Vista, open your browser by right-clicking on its icon and select 'Run as administrator' to perform this scan.
  • Read through the requirements and privacy statement and click on Accept button.
  • It will start downloading and installing the scanner and virus definitions. You will be prompted to install an application from Kaspersky. Click Run.
  • When the downloads have finished, click on Settings.
  • Make sure these boxes are checked (ticked). If they are not, please tick them and click on the Save button:
    • Spyware, Adware, Dialers, and other potentially dangerous programs
      Archives
  • Click on My Computer under Scan.
  • Once the scan is complete, it will display the results. Click on View Scan Report.
  • You will see a list of infected items there. Click on Save Report As....
  • Save this report to a convenient place. Change the Files of type to Text file (.txt) before clicking on the Save button.
  • Please post this log in your next reply along with a fresh HijackThis log.

I ran the Kaspersky Scan. It took an hour and 45 minutes to complete. The scan report was blank.

Hi,

This doesn't seem to be a malware related problem.
I recommend you to ask your question in this subforum: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/56/windows-xp-home-and-professional/

Good luck. :thumbsup:
