My Toshiba laptop has been running slowly lately and has a tendency to freeze up especially when using internet explorer. My virus software has found nothing and I have run malwarebytes and it did not find anything either. I'm just wondering if there is an issue that those things may not be able to find. Also, since we have switched to daylight savings time I have had to reset my date and time a few different times, it will not stay on what I set it to. (I've had to reset twice so far today) Thanks for any help you may be able to provide.

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

• Close all open programs and internet browsers.
• Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
• Click on Scan button.
• When the scan has finished click on Clean button.
• Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
• Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
• You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.
• Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
• Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
• The tool will open and start scanning your system.
• Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
• On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
• Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message
• Hold down Control and click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
• Click the button.
• For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
• Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
• Double click on the icon on your desktop.
• Click the Start button.
• Accept any security warnings from your browser.
• Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
• ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
• When the scan completes, click List Threats
• Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
• Click the Back button.
• Click the Finish button.
• NOTE:Sometimes if ESET finds no infections it will not create a log.

Which browser are you attempting to use for Eset? To run ESET Online Scanner in a browser other than Internet Explorer, you'll need to download ESET Smart Installer.

Try this link if using IE.

Free Virus Scan | Online Virus Scanner from ESET

You had a program that is risky to use and not recommended removed by JRT. That may of caused clock problems or it could be the CMOS battery

needs replacing. But see what ESET finds first.

Are you still having to reset the clock?

Post the three lists mentioned below using CCleaner.

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Startups. On that page you will see a list of Windows Startups and at the top tabs for each browser and Scheduled Tasks.

At the bottom right of that page you will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste the list of Windows Startups and Scheduled Tasks into your next

post. Please do that.

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Uninstall. On that page you will see a list of programs installed on your computer and at the bottom right of that page you

will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste that list in your next post. Please do that.

My computer does seem to be performing better, thank you. Any suggestions for programs to keep to monitor performance and startup programs and such? Thanks again.

I know of no program that is worthwhile for doing such things speeding up, registry cleaning, etc. Many if not all are

junk ware, perform unnecessary actions, severely damage the computer and install a ton of adware. The rule of thumb is

if it ain't broke...don't fix it.

You have CCleaner and now know how to use it to check for unwanted startups and tasks. Almost all free programs and addons

these days come with bundled adware. Keep the programs you have used and run them after downloading free stuff before installing

and maybe once a month to check for unwanted crapola.

You're welcome...enjoyed working with you....happy surfin'
