See, I've just had these malware cleaned off of my PC just a while ago with the help of some nice guy here in Bleepingcomputer---Which I'm quite thankful BTW!

 

But ever since then--well rather my PC's been slow for a while now; but it became slower? Everything seems to be hanging every now and then and goes "Not responding" 80% of the time now. I've deleted and uninstalled some things thinking it'll fix things, but nope--nothing!

 

Even now it's still lagging lol!

Well you shouldnt trust anyone that has contacted you online offering to help you . Especially for free, this comes rarely

(usually someone trying to infect you, because you are an easy target asking for help willing to trust anyone). But its ok

you have now been informed.For all you know that person could have ruined your computer let alone fix it, But any way

I would download Hijackthis and post the results on here. I would also recommend creating a Avira or Kaspersky rescue

disk and boot from them and run the AV scans while booted out of Windows. Go from there.

ayahdiamon, for now disregard the advice to run Hijack This. There are other things to explore first which may help with the slowness issue. If advanced malware logs are needed you will be directed to the proper tools and the appropriate forum.

Please read the post by ayahdiamon again, this time more carefully. You will see this
 

See, I've just had these malware cleaned off of my PC just a while ago with the help of some nice guy here in Bleepingcomputer

 
He/she was NOT contacted online by someone "offering to help". ayahdiamon posted a request for help in Am I Infected? That topic is here
 http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/487044/unable-to-start-windows-firewall-service-specific-error-code-5-win7-32bit/
 
With the help of Bleeping Computer advisor narenxp the issue was resolved.
 
narenxp is a trusted member of Bleeping Computer and has helped many people with infection issues. He would never infect anyone or ruin another person's computer. Neither would our other trusted helpers. They are volunteers-donating their time-dedicated to malware removal, free of charge.

 
Am I Infected? is constantly monitored by staff to ensure that only QUALIFIED members (staff or not) help with malware issues.
 
You also mention Hijack This. Bleeping Computer no longer recommends Hijack This. We now instruct members to use DDS, which is a much better tool.  As for posting logs "on here" certain logs are allowed ONLY in Malware Removal Logs.

Uhhh.. yeah, thank you for replying to that post Queen-Evie; I will continue to wait for someone that might be able to help me :>

 

In the end, I think it's just my PC? Too many files? I dunno--I uninstalled a few and yeah...
