System manufacturer and model?

How large is C: and how much free space on C:?

How much RAM installed?

Did you do a clean install after your malware episode?

Did you do a repair install?

hi louis,

my computer is a custom build, c drive is 1 tb with 420 gb of free space, i got 4 ddr2 800 ram. no i didn't clean install or repair install, i ran combofix to remove the rootkit as requested from a expert, the sluggish happen after around the time when i upgrade perfect disk from 10 to 11, and install window updates, i did however install a new power supply and a extra 1.5 tb hdd.


i have disable perfect disk schedule and background defrag, it seem fine now. is there anything i can run to see how my comp perform? or a scan to see that nothing is running on the background? in any case i wait and see if it happen again.

Hmmm...you can look at Task Manager anytime...to get an idea of what's running. If unfamiliar with what is reflected...between Process Explorer and Google, you can determine if anything undue is reflected.

<<i ran combofix to remove the rootkit as requested from a expert...>>

Was that suggestion from a member of the BC Malware Team? No need to respond to that, from looking at your topic summary...it doesn't appear so.

IMO, that means that your current system issues may be from either malware or from using ComboFix.

In that light, I am going to move you to the Am I Infected forum for further suggestions/attempts at resolution.

Louis

Check wuauclt.exe and svchost.exe in Task Manager preferably just after startup. A recent issue with Microsoft Updates has been causing
performance issues such as you have described. It is currently being discussed at the following,

http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums...05-33dcf9a9a03b

http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums...58-8b063fbda084

Simple fix/workaround to date is to turn off Microsoft Updates by going to the site and disabling thru "Change Settings" left side menu.

hmmm i see, my computer seem find now, and wuauclt.exe ain't running but i do have 9 svchost.exe running on task manager, don't know if i should still disable Microsoft Updates, since disabling it was the reason why i got a rootkit malware infestion because i didn't update it at all.


*edit*

it seem to me it flashget ver 1.9.6 is causing the problem, when i have a list of things to download it sometime change the url to something else then when i close it, everything become sluggish and then right click won't work, can't access task manager, then the comp freezes it self.

i have uninstalled, now i see if it happen again.
