Hi.
I am at a total loss here.
My PC has suddenly gone SLOW

I have ran every anti virus and malware you can think of in safe mode.
Done a check disk
Defragged.

Stuck.

My problems are....
1. slow or hanging shut down or boot.
2. Windows Mail is very slow to respond on start up. ( hanging on signing in)
3. Internet slow. Using google chrome I get "resolving host" at bottom of page and takes a while to load
Internet Explorer just hangs and doesnt seem to want to load anything.

(no indication I have internet problem as I`m using this PC to send this)

4. Installing and Uninstalling programs takes forever and seem to hang
5. Went through the Windows 7 start up repair, but it found no problems.
6. Have Microsoft security essentials updating but the progress bar is hardly moving.
7. Microsoft Update behaving same as above.
8. If I do a Windows repair on the DVD it gives me 2 options. Online or not. If I go Online it will just hang like the options above.
9. Tried sfc /scannow and get Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service.
I googled this and the service reuired is running.
10. ff to work now, but will run my scans again while I`m away.

Good one this isn`t it?

Hope someone can help.


Ian Edwards


PS
Just tried my scans
I`ve ran virus checkers in safe mode.
Norton Internet security found nothing.
Super Anti Spyware Found nothing.
Malware found nothing.
TDSSKiller found "I:\Windows\system32\Drivers\sptd.sys - quarantined

Hi first rerun TDDSkiller and if something is there select cure.

If nothing then we need a deeper look. Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.
Let me know if that went well.

Hi Boopme.
Many thanks for getting back to me.
I did run TDSSKiller and all it found was ""I:\Windows\system32\Drivers\sptd.sys - quarantined"

Will do the other steps now.
Cheers

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic343506.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
