I have noticed a significant slowing of my computer, and suspect malware due to it's very new age (less than 2 months). Most specifically, I am trying to determine why my internet has been moving so slow. Though I suspect it has something to do with a rather ancient router, I'd rather exhaust the malware/defrag/ccleaner or whatever line of thought before throwing down money for a new router. I run AVG free 8.5 and Malwarebytes, and have run nothing else on the computer. I am embarrassed to say I do not have an active firewall besides what I hope I get through my wireless router . Both AVG and Malwarebytes run clean scans, but I suspect something else may be screwing around with me. As per your forum instructions, I attempted to run DDS.scr, DDS.com, DDS.pif, and have received this notice upon trying to run it.
"This tool does not support your Operating System. Press any key to continue
after pressing any key, the program quits. Please note that I am logged into the Admin account and DDS recognizes me as such. I suspect that dds.scr IS supported by Vista 64-bit SP1, so this raised a bit of concern. For the record, I run an Gateway MD7818u
Processor 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T6400
Memory 4GB, 667MHz DDR2
Hard drive 500GB 5,400rpm
Chipset Intel GM45 Express Chipset
Graphics 128MB Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD (integrated)
Operating system Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit SP1
Anyways, I know you guys like dds logs, but I don't have them. I DO however have two HJT logs, which will be included as an attachment.
If it helps, I can make a list of everything that starts in MSconfig as well. Again, sorry that I can't get dds.scr to work, but I'm hoping the HJT log can be of some use. Please let me know if you see any erroneous processes that I can get rid of .
The first HJT log was not run in admin mode. Please let me know what else I can tell you!
