For the past several months (starting just before Christmas) I have gone through and insured that my system is clean of viruses, Trojans, etc. It has been approximately a month since this was competed and I was told that my system is clean. My son had ignored my warnings and without my knowledge tried to download something illegally and brought in a crack hacker tool ( I think that is what it was called) Since then the performance has gone down and I' would like to find out if there is any way to make sure that everything in my computer - hardware, software, files, registry, etc is ok and that there is nothing either missing, damaged or corrupted. My computer loads very slowly (it has gotten a bit better once I used the 'grime fighter' from Avast) but I notice that programs load very slowly and will say not responding for a while before they start working.
My OS is Windows 7 64-bit
I have Miscrosoft Security Essentials and Avast as well as Windows Firewall running on my computer. I try to scan with those as well as the free version of Malwarebytes to keep everything clean.
Another think I have noticed recently is when I boot the computer up, sometimes it does so VERY slowly and as soon as it is done and I'm tryiing to start working, suddenly it will log itself off - (blue screen with logging off.....)
Can you please help me or direct me to the forum that can help? Thank yo so much!!

moved from Windows 7 to Am I Infected to explore the possibility of malware
