I'm currently doing my boyscout best to repair the work laptop of a friend of a friend of mine. It had some virus-related issues, so I ran malwarebytes. It worked, but afterwards the laptop began presenting a new issue. It's extremely slow, and within about 2 minutes gets so bogged down it simply freezes. It functions fine in safe mode, I'm actually on it right now.


I posted originally in the vista forums (it's vista 32bit), and was asked to come here with logs from ComboFix and dds.


I'm sorry I'm not more specific or helpful. If you need any additional information, I'll respond with it as quickly as possible. If needed, I can copy and paste the contents of these logs into a reply instead of having them as attachments.

Ok it's back up to speed. I uninstalled avast and ran combofix another time (combofix mentioned something about avast potentially interfering with it). After that, it was operational, so I ran windows update and another scanner, and it was back to normal!
