Okay, so this problem has came up not even 12 hours ago.  Yesterday afternoon, my laptop computer with Windows 7 worked just fine; program files and internet browers and all.  But later that night, when I tried to use programs before work, it crashed my entire computer (any open programs completely stopped working) and I had to hold the power button to turn it off.  I thought it was just a one time thing with the crashing/ lagging of the programs and left it for tomorrow. 

 

So I tried using the computer this morning, and it just seemed like the computer was having a hard time loading any program or file I tried assessing.  I even opened my folder option from the windows 7 dashboard, which only ended with it opening very slowly ( about 5-6 minutes to just show the music, videos, documents and pictures folders).  I tried acessing MBAM, but it would lag so bad as a whole that it would not even open.  My computer can't even restart nomally because of the terrible lagging.  As a result, I have to force restart it by holding down the power button everytime. 

 

The only way that any program would open is if it was in safe mode.  I put it in safe mode without networking and ran MBAM and it found nothing.  Then I ran aswMBR, and again nothing was found.  So, I restarted normally from safe mode and entered normal mode again.  I tried acessing google chrome, but again, my computer felt too much lag to perform the task, so I just shut off my laptop and came here.   

 

I am currently on my desktop writing this because I essentially can't do anything on my laptop, without any reminders telling me.  Can someone help me understand what is going on with my programs, computer loadings, and my computer in general lagging so bad?  Is there a virus, a rootkit, etc. holding my computer back?  Please get back to me.

 

 

Operating system: Windows 7 home premium; 64-bit

computer: HP dv74087cl

 

 

 

**Edit**

 

This edit here is being done from the laptop that is under suspicion.  I was able to click and open programs okay.  I was able to run SUPER Anti-spyware, aswMBR, and MBAM.    Nothing was found in aswMBR or MBAM, while Super cleared the suspicious cookies. Then, I hooked the computer to the internet and the browser worked fine, still feels like it loads a little slow.  Also, I ran a file on Windows player, which occasionally lagged the song playing (it played but had slight stops here and there).  Last notable thing is when I tried running MBAM again.  This time, I tried checking for updates for it, but as it was checking the server, it stalled and the small update window went unresponsive.

 

So, I have the use of my programs as far as I know.  However, my computer doesn't feel nor look smooth performing tasks like this. Let me know what is the next steps to take since aswMBR and MBAM didn't find anything.

Hello, I think we should get a deeper look. Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.

Thank you!

 

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

The current wait time is 1 - 2 days and ALL logs are answered.

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

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
