File is located C:\Windows/system32/npmproxy/DLL

My computer is running very slow and sluggish and this error keeps popping up. My laptop use to have do do around 6 updates every time I shutdown and now it isn't doing it anymore. Since that has stopped my computer has been very slow. Do I have a virus? Or do I need to reinstall windows?

Please download AdwCleaner and install it.
When AdwCleaner opens you will see an image like the one below.
Click on Scan to start the scan.
Once the search is complete a list of the pending items will be displayed.  If you see any which you do not want removed, remove the check mark next to it.  
Click on Clean to remove the selected items.  If you have any questions about any items in the list please copy and paste the list in your topic so we can review it.  
You will receive a message telling you that all programs will be closed so that the infections can be removed.  Click on OK.  The computer will be restarted to complete the cleaning process.
When the cleaning process is complete a log of what was removed will be presented.  Please copy and the paste this log in your topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
