The malware group on here was able to help me remove some malware that was using all my internet data. Since then my computer has started and ran slow. Even the internet runs slow on this computer only.

 

Any one have suggestions on how to improve the speed of this computer?

 

Thanks

Is the computer slow running in Safe Mode? If not then do a clean boot and start enabling services and startup items until you can determine which process is causing the slowdown. 

 

If the computer is still slow in Safe Mode and you have a install disk with the same SP then try doing a repair install.

- Did you run Tweaking's Windows Repair ? Malware Always messes around with the settings of a system. As the name says, the program puts A LOT OF settings to their default setting.
