Hi, this is my problem:
When i start my pc, after i submit my password, the pc is very slow to show the desktop.
I tried malware bytes, avg, etc.

Excuse me for my english.

*mod edit: removed HJT log. There are other reasons why a system will run slow that should be explored first. If logs are needed you will be directed to the Prep Guide. ~ Queen-Evie*

What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

The "Slow Computer/browser? Check Here First; It May Not Be Malware" post is an excellent source of information. If you run through all the suggestions you will have a computer with improved performance.

On top of clearing out temporary files using CCleaner and tweaking Operating System/Internet explorer settings, I often find the following options really improves performance:

  • Create a new account. A new account is a good test to see if there is anything wrong with your profile. If the new account runs quickly when loading applications or surfing the Internet, then it suggests a potential issue with your profile. Backup al you required data files, IE shortcuts etc and use the new account. In time, you can delete your old account
  • I also find Autoruns (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902) an excellent tool to disable/delete anything loading at startup that you don't need. Download the utility, run it (autoruns.exe) and click the Logon tab. Give your computer a moment to populate the logon list. Then carefully read through each application and disable (Untick the box) or delete (Right Click/Delete). I tend to delete things like Adobe Download Manager/Launcher and other unnecessary tools (e.g. Graphics Card software) and toolbars (e.g. BingBar) that I don't use or need. If you are unsure what a particular EXE does, right click and select the Search Online option

I hope this helps you.
