Hello everyone, and thank you in advance.
I am running on a custom pc with Windows 10 pro. I had malware a few months ago, and I had thought I removed it all. My browsers are the worst issue. They run super slow, and run out of memory a lot. Sometimes with very few tabs open! I use firefox and chrome. I use both so I can have business settings in one browser and personal in another. My system gets super slow too with little stress. A lot of not responding when I am just opening a folder, moving a small file on the same drive, or just about any other task.
The pc is a bit older, but should have no issues keeping up on the simple task I do day to day. I mean I use to play games on it with no issues, even newer games at high settings.
Phenom II x4 955
8 GB DDR3
Nvidia GTX 750 Ti
2x ~40GB Velociraptor 10000 HD, Raid 0 (Intended as OS/Games only, is 80% full.)
1 TB 7200 HD (20% full)
Things I have done. Malware removal a few months ago using Spybot, Malwarebytes, Avast, Hitman, Adw Cleaner, Emsisoft Emergency Kit, iExplore, JRT, Tdsskiller. I unfortunately can not find all my logs. Most of them found something that the others did not though, which makes me uneasy about any of them to trust that they can find everything. I have my Hitman, Avast, Malwarebytes, and Spybot log files still. I defragged, I uninstalled a bunch, I ran disk cleanup, diskcleanup the system files, disabled startup items, and manually adjusted virtual memory.
