I have an HP HDX 16 running windows 7. About 6 weeks ago I started having problems with my computer slowing down and then becoming non-functional, so I would have to shut it down and start over. I ran malware bytes in safe mode but found nothing. This has happened several times - each time worse. I reran malware - again nothing. I tried testing my hard drive with the built in diagnostic, but it says my hard drive is perfect. Hmmm. anyway, I decided that rather than try a bunch of stuff on my own, I would follow your step-by=step procedure to see if I have a malware problem. I have attached the two files from dds you asked for.
Thanks for your help. I await your brilliance!
