Hello! My Windows 7 computer is running a bit slow, and I was wondering if anyone is willing to help me try and figure out if it has anything due to malware or corrupted files. Thanks!

Run CCleaner through it  https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download - Free Version.

Just Run the Cleaner Tab after install. 

 

And Malwarebytes  https://www.malwarebytes.com/ - Free version.

Remove what it finds.

 

And see if that iproves anything.

If you think it may have malware still installed - Post within http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/

to download the Eset Smartinstaller.***

    here
    .

  • Place a checkmark in YES, I accept the Terms of Use, then click Start. Wait for ESET Online Scanner to load its components.
