Hello,

I am currently running Windows 7 Home Premium on an Asus Notebook, recently I've been having a lot of hard drive activity, shown to me by a light on my laptop, which has caused my laptop to run extremely slow and not even open some applications, I'm also not able to uninstall some programs from the control panel. I must force it to start up in safe mode with networking to get it to work. The last application I had downloaded was an update that came up in the bottom right of the screen that seemed to be official although I had also been running a version of lime-wire and frost-wire previously. I've defragged several times, deleted all possible, unneeded programs, and have ran: TrendMicro Housecall, MalewareBytes, Avast antivirus, and Norton Virus scans and all of them have come back with nothing but small tracking cookies. I've deleted all user accounts and created a new one so formatting will not be a problem if necessary but my laptop was preloaded with windows 7 so I do not have a boot disk.

Thank you for your time and help,
G&R
