A few days ago i was on the internet and i caught a virus called Win Av.exe or Windows Anti virus 2009 or 10 i think. I caught one of these before and deleted it successfully and went about my business but this time when i caught it i actually didn't have my firewall on. Well to make long story short i tried to fix myself rebooted while it was on there couldn't run any anti malware or virus scan/programs for a while found a program called combo fix read warnings(but ignored)ran a scan it killed the viruses i think or majority of them after i ran scan my computer started becoming tremendously slow when i go to my user log in screen i log in, but it stays still for at least 10 minutes then finally logs me in and the start up takes forever. My internet freezes up along with other programs. I am now stuck should i wipe out my hard drive and start again or is there a way for me to speed up my computer like it was before.

Edit: I have ran Malware Bytes, Super anti-spyware, and Vipre scans they all find nothing. I also am using McAfee Security Center.

Thanks in advance. :thumbsup:

I would recommend reformatting and reinstall the OS
I wouldn't know what else to suggest to you

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
