I am using XP on my laptop. And recently it became so slow that it can not even turn on properly. I started on Safe Mode. Run Combo fix and Avira System Speedup. Which resulted in a better performance. After that I installed McAfee and it found 3 trojans, 1 virus and no rootkits. But still there is a problem with the web browsers. While scrolling a page it lags and refreshes the page in the screen line by line like the very old CRT screens. Also when I open a new tab in any browser (IE or Chrome)icons of the pages are disorted and pixelated sometimes. I reinstall the graphics card driver but nothing changed. In the forums I found out that at the advanced options under internet options there is a box for smooth scroll. It was already ticked but my computer still does not scroll smoothly. I feel like this is some kind of infection. But what kind??
Have you ever encountered or heard about a similar problem?
Please help.

Since you ran Combofix...

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
