I am having issues with a computer running Windows XP that has in the past had a variety of malware removed with Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware. I have Avast Antivirus installed, but it returns an error when it tries to do an update.

I cannot run Malwarebytes or SuperAntiSpyware - I click on them and they never start up. The same with Internet Explorer. Everthing runs very slowly, just trying to click on the My Computer icon takes a minute to load. I am able log into Safe Mode, access the internet, and run Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware. Neither program shows any infected files.

Please help!
