My problem is windows 7 takes a long time to go past the welcome loading screen when
it's loading the OS. (FYI- Win7 came preloaded when I purchased my laptop)

It takes about 5-10 mins to finally load onto desktop.Never took so long before up until last night.

Once at the desktop...I can't open my programs like normal each time it
freezes/lags/slow as molasses if you will .Then I'm able to open up a program and
it continues...Sometimes the screen blacks out and never returns so I reboot.
Whatever trojan/virus is present manages to disable McAfee protection each time I start up.
I would have to go in and enable it each time I'm logged on.

Steps I've taken:

***I've tried booting up via safe mode (same thing happens).
***I've ran the startup repair (could not detect a problem).
***I've Cleared out my temp files.
***I've Defrag my laptop.
***I've ran spybot search & destroy(found the following Doubleclick,Win32.Agent.ws,Zedo)
***I've done a system restore to a point where my laptop worked like charm.
***I've ran full MBAM (safe mode) scan results...(no malicious viruses detected).
***I've ran full McAfee (safe mode) scan results( no viruses found).


I wanted to see what could be done first, before I attempt a system recovery which is
at the bottom of my totem pole,don't want to lose my data. :thumbsup:

Please Advise & Your Assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Hello,

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic357246.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.
