I purchased a used laptop for my son. The laptop has been cleaned out but seems to be extremely slow. I have ran several scans and can't seem to find anything. I'm not sure if the problem isn't just with the laptop not being sufficient in speed and memory. I am ready to pitch it and buy another one. I ran Hijackthis already and pasted the log below. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

Download DDS and save it to your desktop from here or here or here.
Disable any script blocker, and then double click dds.scr to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt
  • Save both reports to your desktop. Post them back to your topic.

  • ----

    Download GMER here by clicking download exe -button and then saving it your desktop:
    • Double-click .exe that you downloaded
    • Click rootkit-tab, uncheck files option and then click scan.
    • Don't check

      box while scanning in progress!
    • When scanning is ready, click Copy.
    • This copies log to clipboard
    • Post log (if the log is long, archive it into a zip file and attach instead of posting) in your reply.
