I have a hp laptop running vista today it is running slow, any program i try to run takes forever for example internet explorer takes about 2-3 minutes to load. FYI my laptop was working fine yesterday and i did not installed anything. Also i ran combofix and my norton 360 to see if i have any virus but they both did not find anything.

Also i ran combofix


This is just for future reference and members! I am not scolding you in any way. :huh:

ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here

Unlike what many people think, Combofix is not a fix-all program that's just "run and done". It is a highly specialized tool that should only be used under the supervision of an expert. It's not an "everyday use", clean-all program.

If you suspect malware, please post a new topic in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs sub-forum, with a description of the issues you are having and the contents of the log file (copy and paste the contents of the log into your topic, don't attach it). Please note: the Malware Response team are always overwhelmed, and it could take a few days to get your first reply. Just be patient and don't "bump" your topic by replying to it. You will also likely be scolded for running Combofix without supervision.

If you don't suspect malware and just ran Combofix for no good reason, please uninstall it by typing the following into the "Run" box and pressing Enter: combofix /uninstall

You should check your processes to see if anything looks weird and out of place that hogs up all the memory. Sometimes it might be the SVCHOST.EXE Process that hogs them up.

Since it worked fine yesterday, do a system restore to before you had problems. And I would ditch the Norton antivirus in favor of Avira or Avast free antivirus.

I try to do system restore but the only restore point is the day when my computer started running slow. The good news that i Know its one of the services that is running that is causing the slowness because i disable all of them which i have 125 services that were running at the time. My question is can some one tell me what services i need to have and the ones i dont need to have running

Since the slowness happened overnight, surely, it can't be related to your current startups, or services running. They ran yesterday as well and everything was fine.

I suggest, you post in "Am I Infected?" forum.
