Hello there.

As of yesterday, my computer turned really slow. My first thought was that my drivers were out of date, however they didn't seem to be. After that I tried to try out a system restore. That didn't help either. So I went on the internet, and realized it was probably a trojan. And it sure was. After scanning my computer with Malwarebytes, I found "x.exe", some trojan that I believe Malwarebytes deleted. However, after this, my computer is still running slower than it should be. I have no idea why that is. I have 4 GB DDR3 RAM, which should be sufficient. I've got a i5 @ 2.4 ghz processor. When i go to the task manager, my CPU usage is below 20% most of the time, so I have no idea why my computer is running slow. Hope you can help.



EDIT: It is probably worth noting, that I have nothing running in the background. I've closed everything except AVG really.
