About a month ago I was infected with a redirecting virus that was successfully (I think) removed after trying about 15 different spyware/antivirus tools (I wish I would have posted here). More recently I had an AV Security virus that I was able to remove (again I think) using the tutorial here at BleepingComputer.com.

Now my problem is the system is running in slow motion. Every click I make takes 30 to 40 seconds to be recognized. Iím afraid I have something else running in the background eating up my recourses.

In the interest of full discloser I did post to this forum about 2 months ago and dropped the ball on following up with the kind person who responded. I can go into a litany of excuses, but there just isnít anything acceptable for not following up with someone trying to help you. I assure you it will not happen again.

My system is running Windows Home Vista with Service pack 2.

I would start in SAFE MODE with networking.

Then, assuming you DID keep Malwarebytes since you removed AV Security Suite, I would update it and do a full scan.
Then I would go download Microsoft Security Essentials (From the microsoft website, mind you) and get that updated and do a full scan with that too, all while in safe mode.
If anything is found with either scanner, I would have both programs remove it, then Id restart the computer....

but thats just what I'd do.

Possibly admins have better advice than I do?
