Refer to the topic HERE for boopme's history on my malware checks from a few days ago and reinstallation of Avira 2012 as it stopped working with similar symptoms as described below.
The problems that exist now are,
Video files begin to lag at random during playback. One moment it's playing fine for a good while and suddenly, lagging. Same issue in Windows Media Player, Media Player Classic and VLC Media Player. Also, VLC takes an unbearably long time to execute.
Photoshop takes too long to execute, then lags when I'm working on large files.
Firefox slows down and freezes at random as well.
I run Ccleaner regularly and defrag once a month.
How do I get my programs running normally again?
