Hi - My computer has been running very slow for a long time - I use Avast and ad aware and scan regularly - I also recently downloaded Malwarebytes and ran that - it deleted 11 malware programs but my computer is still slow. For instance if I shut down my computer and reboot it takes forever for everything to load enough for me to open any program. Once I am online if i try to negotiate from one page to another it will blank out the page I am on for a few seconds then stay on that page - I have to click again on the page I want to go to and then it takes forever to load. I seem to have a lot of processes running too in my task manager. I can't really tell if I am infected with anything or if my computer is just getting old and full. Thanks for your help - Utopist1

If your computer/browser seems to be slow, please refer to Slow Computer/Browser? Check here first; it may not be malware. There are reasons for slowness and poor performance besides malware - i.e. disk fragmentation, disk errors, corrupt system files, too many startup programs, unnecessary services running, too many browser Add-ons (toolbars), not enough RAM, dirty hardware components, etc. As your system gets older it becomes filled with more files/programs and has a natural tendency to slow down so cleaning and regular maintenance is essential.

I done a fair amount of the above stuff already but certainly not certainly all the page above suggests - so I will try the rest of it - thanks
