For the last two days, my computer has been extremely slow and unresponsive. Sometimes it never responds to anything upon start up. Sometimes I can use it for a while without problems, but eventually it becomes completely unresponsive. I cannot run any programs or even shut it down normally. The only things I remember downloading/installing in the last few days are an Avast update and Malwarebytes. I am running Windows XP and primarily use Internet Explorer. Is there anything I can do to correct this problem?

Yes, it is the same computer as the other topic. That issue was resolved, so I am coming back to Bleeping Computer again.

I suggest you PM "narenxp" and you continue in your original topic since all the info is there.

OK--thanks. Is there anything else I should do besides posting the new problem in that topic? Do I have to send a message directly to narenxp, and, if so, how do I do that?

I'd just post new reply.
I'm sure he's still subscribed to that topic so he'll be notified.
If he doesn't reply by tomorrow PM him.
