Why was my post from yesterday closed..?? Attached, find the DDS scan results. Any advice is appreciated. If there is a problem with me posting, then someone let me know, don't just close my topic.

Thank you in advance.

My laptop has really been very slow for the last month or so. Up until then, I haven't really had any problems with it. All programs would open within 2-3 seconds. Now the same programs take up to 40 seconds to load. If anybody has any advice on finding the culprit, please let me know...I use Norton 360 as my AV and firewall but its scans don't ever find any major problems. I don't know what is going on.

Hello Padraig,

I don't know why it was closed. It is possible that someone saw your topic in the Am I Infected forum and closed the HiJack This topic before the AII topic was closed and obviously didn't explain why. That is one of the confusions that can occur when posting more than one topic on the same issue. I have reopened your HiJack This topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/233730/possible-infection-or-other/

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible

This topic shall disappear in the next 24 hours or so.
