This is my mothers laptop, and I'm not familiar with Vista.. The computer is suddenly VERY slow. I can click 3-5 times on the start menu before it opens once. It's not just 'slow' though, it's like it doesn't even register that I've clicked until I've decided it must have crashed. I can barely switch between IE and the System pane! I can hardly get my cursor to move where I want it too!

It's an older Toshiba Satalite A205; Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2.

I've run Mbam and deleted 20 found items/restarted.
Ran an Avast quick scan/ found nothing.
Running a deep scan with avast right now.

What else could I try looking for?

HAHAHAHAHAHA............... NEVERMIND! IT WAS HER MOUSE!! I plugged mine in and all got MUCH better!

Can you post the detection logs for Malwarebytes?
