My notebook slowed down to a crawl over time.
In addition, it sometimes locks accompanied by an increased fan sound (mostly when connected to a wired LAN, but not on a wireless LAN) and requires restarting.
My Vista SP2 system is protected by ESET Nod32 5. I ran a MBAM several times, but did not find any malware.
I clean up my system using CCleaner and monitor resource usage with Sysinternals Process Explorer but could not find any excess usage most of the time. I also checked my hard disk and found to be "healthy".
I suspect a rootkit or someting similar, but don't know what to do.
Please help me.
