Hey guys... so I am tired of this BLEEPING computer! lol

I am a photographer, and run Photoshop CS5 daily. lately I have noticed that the longer it stays open the slower and slower it gets, along with my entire computer.

Also, I have noticed that my Windows Mail (which admittedly has thousands of messages) is very slow to load and do anything in. It gets to the point where I'd rather read mail on my iPhone. IS there anyway to archive OLD messages (without deleting them in case I need them) to speed up it's loading? I eventually need to weed through all of the garbage emails and save the rest.

Lastly, I am having a general slowdown. The computer I am on has 4 cores and 4GB of RAM, when I first got it I could have have my dual monitors set up, running an itunes movie on one side and Phosotop on the other, no issue. Now I cannot without lag.

OOPS switched forums.

Now that your log is properly posted, here, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the logs you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another Malware Removal Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
