My computer has been running very slow. I have Eset Smart Security 5 and have run there scan with no results. I also have used CleanUp. I have AdAware and have removed anything that it has found.

Thank you in advance for any help offered.

There are multiple reasons for "slow computer" situations, with malware being just one.

Answer these question, you will find the solution...

1. Check your hard drive Storage.. Is that full?
2. How many software are you loading during start-up?
3. How frequent are you de-fragmenting your hard drive?
