Good evening, I'm trying to get rid of Utorrentie.exe and as OP hasn't responded with logs I thought I'd jump in for some help.

My story is longwinded and i'm not that PC savvy so please bear with me.....


I've had my laptop, a Sony Vaio VGN-N215 for maybe 5 years and I bought it second hand.

Running Vista SP2

P - Intel® Core™2 CPU T5200 @ 1.60GHz 1.60 GHz

Ram - 3 GB

ST - 32-bit


When I bought it it was running XP, the guy I got it off knew i wanted to use it mainly for music software and he said this would be the best as XP it quite 'light.'

It worked perfectly until about August this year, when after not being able to update certain software for a while i decided to upgrade to 7. A friend of a friend did me a really good deal and installed W7 Ultimate for me.

At this point I started having real issues, it was bearly useable if more that one window or program was open and all software had real delays in loaded and were glitchy to use.

I took it to a shop this time and was informed that I was runing an illegal copy of windows but there the bottom of the machine was a valid Vista HP cert so if I reinstalled Vista things should work fine again.

I did and it worked OK again after some driver updates and a bit of messing about but I stupidly did not validate Vista immediately and after a while it went to reduced functionality, atwhich point it became really slugg ish again. I validated my Windows then a few things improved but it's still really slow and the main program I use, Traktor 2 with a MIDI controller, even when only playing one track would get really glitchy.

I had to force the system to shut down earlier and noticed that Utorrentie.exe was running. Investigating what that waas has brought me here.


Here's the logs from the programs DC3 said to run.....
