My computer has become, intermittently, lately. Startup and shutdown times are 85% longer; startup times are also 85% longer. Suspicous of a spyware infection I have run several antispyware and antimalware programs. These programs include, advanced system care (systweak), Super-antispyware, GMER, ComboFix, Malwarebytes, Hijack This and Rootkit Revealer. I also ran scans with ESET, MCAFEE, Trend Micro, and A squared antivirus while the system was bound offline. In my experience AVG is a mediocre program; furthermore, I do not have any signs of an adware infection. Explorer.exe is running much more slowly than it used to. On more than one occassion, Windows freezes on shutdown.
