i have a  laptop with windows 7 that is running extremely slow when booted normally.  Everything bogs down or stops altogether.  Norton ran for over 8 hours and found only some adware to remove.  Malwarebytes tookclose to 6 hours to run and only detected adware. Something is wrong and I believe it is a virus. Please advise.

 It could be bad sectors on your hard drive.  Run chkdsk and let it check for and attempt repair of any bad sectors.

 

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:
