I was previously on this forum to get help removing malware from my computer...I got some awesome help, but never finished all the steps that were recommended to me (went on vacation and then completely forgot to follow up!) Most of the original problems from the malware are gone, but my computer is still so slow, and I still get random annoying browser ads randomly. Can someone help me figure out how to start over and clean up my computer?

 

Oh, and I just downloaded Windows 10. Everything seems even slower since then too!

 

Thank you!

I am currently using Windows 10.

 

I am not sure what you are asking otherwise...I followed the instructions given me in the previous thread except for those last given, the problem was fixed enough by then to make the computer usable but has never been completely fixed.
