Runng windows 7. Recently had a hard drive crash. Reinstalled everything that I could including norton antivirus, but it's been 3-4 weeks and computer is running slower than ever.

I have run nortons virus scan with 0 issues and have fixed issues pulled up by malwarebytes (mbam) and superantivirus (sas) but performance has not gotten any better. Every new screen takes 15-30 seconds to load and all my video flash player files hang and take forever to start up.

The only new error message or different thing Ive seen is a file called "uniblue registry booster" which I never downloaded but now appears on start up.

Please let me know what I can check or try?

Appreciate the feedback. Thanks

First of all, NEVER use any registry cleaners or boosters - they cause problems, they don't fix them.

After installing W7 did you install all drivers starting with the chipset driver? Look in device manager - any errors?

I havent used the registry booster. I just keep ignoring it since i wasnt sure what it was.

I re-installed everything using the recovery disk and the manual that came with the new hard drive. I assume all drivers were done properly. I checked device manager and don't have any errors displayed.

Let me know whats next. Thanks
