Hello,

My sister has this really old laptop that she rarely uses because she thinks it's infected,

I've performed a Malwarebyte's scan and ESET online scanner and both have found no threats,

I've also performed a disk defragment and check disk and removed all old and unused programs/software,

My sister wants to restore to factory settings but I don't want to go through the trouble If I don't have to.

Am I infected or clean?

Here is the most recent malwarebytes scan:

=============================================================================

Please download GMER from one of the following locations and save it to your desktop:
  • Main Mirror
    This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
  • Zipped Mirror
    This version will download a zip file you will need to extract first. If you use this mirror, please extract the zip file to your desktop.
  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.

    Posted Image
  • GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)
  • If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
  • Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
  • Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and be sure to re-enable your anti-virus, Firewall and any other security programs you had disabled.

IMPORTANT! If for some reason GMER refuses to run, try again.
If it still fails, try to UN-check "Devices" in right pane.
If still no joy, try to run it from Safe Mode.

Hey Broni!

Thank you for taking your time to help me, Here are the logs you asked for, do you still want me to perform a malwarebyte's scan? I already have one in my first comment.

All looks clean so far.

What is your sister complaining about?

One issue I can see is low amount of RAM:

Total physical RAM: 446.98 MB

She could use another 512MB of RAM for better performance.

==============================================================

Unless you installed Viewpoint Manager knowledgeably...
Go Start>Control Panel>Add\Remove (Programs and Features in Vista), and...
Uninstall any of the following programs associated with Viewpoint:
* Viewpoint Manager
* Viewpoint Media Player
* Viewpoint Toolbar
This program does not do anything bad such as deliver ads or spy on you, but it is considered foistware ("drive-by-install") as it is installed without your consent through programs like AOL, AIM, Compuserve, etc.

=============================================================

Download Temp File Cleaner (TFC)
Double click on TFC.exe to run the program.
Click on Start button to begin cleaning process.
TFC will close all running programs, and it may ask you to restart computer.

=============================================================

Download Autoruns for Windows: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx
No installation required.
Simply unzip Autoruns.zip file, and double click on autoruns.exe file to run the program.
Go File>Save, and save it as AutoRuns.txt file to know location.
You must select Text from drop-down menu as a file type:

I uninstalled Viewpoint Manager and did everything you wanted me to do with autorun but I'm a little confused about what file you want me to upload www.filedropper.com

Here's the link

You didn't say:

Autoruns log looks fine. I don't see any unnecessary startups.

She think the computer has a virus because its running slow but it is a really old computer. She said she remembers it having a virus before.
