Hi there, I picked Codegvru problems up using Acestream/Streamtorrent.


It has left my computer really slow, even struggling to load Google Chrome tabs.


I have uninstalled both programs and run several antivirus/anti malware programs but my computer is still 'laggy'.


can anyone help?

I think I managed to remove codegvru yesterday, so maybe it is something else which is causing the problem? I'm clueless, sorry!

First - This is a "basic clean-up" and we will go further depending on your answers.

Please download and run RKill by Grinler.
 A black DOS box will appear for a short time and then disappear.
 This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
 At most the tool will usually run for about 2 minutes
 Please Copy and Paste the small log back here.

Important: Do not reboot your computer until you complete the next step.

* NOW :
 Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
 * Double-click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
 * Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
 * Click on the Scan button only once to ensure a correct reading
 * AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
 * After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open in Notepad for review.
* Check the removals and see if you are OK with the list.

* Now
 * Click on the Clean button only once to ensure a correct reading
 * Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
 * Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.
 * After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S0].txt) will open automatically.
 * Copy and Paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.

* A copy of all logfiles are also saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.



After you post those logs, please INSTALL / UPDATE and scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and post the log produced.

thanks for your help noknojon, really appreciate it. I tried adwcleaner yesterday but I don't think I was patient enough ( I closed it down while it still said 'pending, please uncheck elements you don't want to remove)


It's currently running now

after 40 minutes running adwcleaner, the same message is still displayed.


The horizontal grey bar ( I assume a progress bar ) is still fully greyed out.


Maybe adw isn't scanning for some reason?
