Hi A friend dropped off a computer for me to fix. It was full of spyware so I ran Malware Bytes, spybot search and destroy, Super Anti-Spyware(SAS) and did a full system scan and removed what they found. They all found a bit of junk but it was mostly Cool web search that they found other then cookies but SAS did find one infection it called a rootkit in c:\windows\mbr.exe. (I had to scan in safemode as regular mode was real slow or would just freeze up a quarter of the way through any scan.) I also ran microsoft mem test (20 passes), Did a defrag, check disk, all came up good.
Computer is a dell
has a dual 1.6-1.8 ghz processor
1 gig memory
260 gig hd
Every time you go to do anything it just freezes up. when it freezes up the mouse still works but you just can't click on anything do anything no matter how long you wait. Also there are times that it freezes completely and nothing moves.
