Several weeks ago, I was infected with the security suites virus. I could not use or access the internet to seek support. On another computer, I first downloaded MALWAREBYTES, RHKILL,and COMBOFIX (did not solve the problem) and later PC TOOLS SPYWARE DOCTOR to a flashdrive and installed on my computer in SAFE mode.
Spyware Doctor found various infections and removed them and the SECURITY SUITES virus seemed to be gone. MOST subsequent scans have found no infections.
I have repeatedly run chkdsk, defragged, removed all the programs I did not use regularly,scanned for registry errors (CC CLeaner) but my computer is running incredibly slowly: 10-15 minutes to boot up, opening EACH program takes anywhere from 3 - 15 minutes.
Normally the browser takes so long to open that I cannot even use the internet. Today it took IE8 10 minutes to open, but once open it has been running perfectly normally.
HELP! My computer is old, but I cant afford a new one now.
