I am hoping somebody can help me with this. My computer is not working at all well and although i have scanned with Malwarebytes and Avast nothing has been found. My programs are hanging, closing down, and in general the computer is so slow no matter what i do. On top of that i have discovered that i have no calander to use on System resore. I have tried the trick of turning it off rebooting and turning back on to no avail. I was looking for something on the net last week and clicked on various sites but at least two of them suddenly came up with your computer is infected and tried to force me into downloading some scanner of some sort. I have a felling its infected the computer somehow.
I am running Windows XP Pro Version 2002 Service pack 3. Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.80GHz 2.79 GHz 504mb Ram. I am only using about a quarter of the memory so i dont think the computer should be as slow as it is and its heaps slower than it was a few weeks ago. Can anyone help please. Not an expert but am not completely novice. Thanks in advance

Hello also post that SAS scan log for review and run an Online scan.

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan

    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Push the Start button.
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
