G'day mexicoisgreat, and Welcome to BC.

 

 

No No and NO !

 

1. CCleaner is quite a good product....However...it also use a Registry Cleaner which has the potential to cause huge problems. Use the cleaner itself by all means, but do not use the registry cleaner option.

 

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/407147/answers-to-common-security-questions-best-practices/?p=2853053

 

2.Clean Master, is for Android phones /systems. I have no experience with this product.

 

3.Combo Fix. this is a definite NO.   Be warned. Highly trained people only should use this tool.  Our forum is littered with users who have used this tool without support from the trained experts .......and are now regretting it very much

 

No one should be using ComboFix unless specifically instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert who can interpret the logs. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. When issues arise with new malware infections or other security tools conflicting with ComboFix, experts are aware of them and can advise users what should or should not be done while providing assistance. Those attempting to use ComboFix on their own do not have such information and are at risk when running the tool in an unsupervised environment. Please read the pinned topic ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here

4.A good SAFE temp file cleaner is TFC  All a temp file cleaner has to do is clean out temp files...right?....it doesnt need to make the coffee and feed the goldfish...etc etc....keep it simple is the way to go.

 

 

5.SD Maid. again, another tool for Android. I have a Samsung SG3......and there is no way would i use that on my phone.

 

 

So...having bored you to tears with all of that.....its your turn....

 

1. Slow...define slow.

 

2. what os are you running...win 7...?

 

3.what have you already run on the pc to try and speed it up ?

 

anything else you can think of that will help.....

Run these for me...in the order listed please .

 

Download Security Check by Screen317 from HERE
* Save it to your Desktop.
* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
Note: If a security program requests permission to access the Internet, allow it to do so.

 

 

Download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.
    Checkmark the following checkboxes:
    Flush DNS
    Report IE Proxy Settings
    Reset IE Proxy Settings
    Report FF Proxy Settings
    Reset FF Proxy Settings
    List content of Hosts
    List IP configuration
    List Winsock Entries
    List last 10 Event Viewer log
    List Installed Programs
    List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
    Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.
    Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.

 

 

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 / Paste the small log back here.

 
    RKill.exe:    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/10/

       iExplore.exe (renamed rKill.exe):     http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/11/

Rkill.com   RKill Download Link Download Now Rkill.com


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

 

 

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)
 * 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)
 * 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.
