Hello, I just registered because I am at the end of my rope for once. Usually when I have a computer problem I just look up stuff and fix it away, but I tried everything here! So I turn to you guys before I spend what little I have on repair.
Device: Acer Aspire One Netbook
OS: Windos XP
Problem: Sluggish System
Tried: SuperAntiSpyware scan, Panda Cloud Antivirus Scan, CCleaner cleanup and registry, disk defragment, scandisk.
About a month ago I was hit with something bad, I don't know if it was malware/spyware/virus. After trying to get rid of it with SuperAntiSpyware (free edition), it got rid of everything else except that thing I had. After multiple scans and using Pand Cloud AntiVirus (free edition), I finally succumbed to using ComboFix (du du duuuuun!). That was my second time using it on this netbook I had for about 2 years.
After I used it, the thing went away and I was happy. But a week or two later, my netbook was venting a lot more than what is should have been. And video streaming (on YouTube) became very poor on all browsers (Opera, Firefox, and Chrome).
But up 3-4 days ago, my netbook would vent like CRAZY just trying to watch ONE single YouTube video on only ONE tab, NO OTHER programs running. Not only that, the sound would become distorted and my mouse wouldn't move smoothly on the pad and screen. I'm afraid this thing is just going to overheat and give out one day from all the stress that come from out of nowhere.
So please, if you may provide assistance and/or give remedies that I may have overlooked, they are MORE than welcome. Thank you for your time and volunteering, it means a lot to me.
