My computer started booting up slower and slower over the past several months.  I use it 2 or 3 times a week for email and quick web searches.  Is there a tutorial that I can visit to help me determine if there is an infection or something unwanted running in the background?

Other then slowness are you seeing anything else out the ordinary?

 

There could be a couple of reasons why your computer is running slower than normal. Below is a link to a post on things that you could check:

Use the programs below to clean, remove malware and remove adware.

 

 

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

 

Malwarebytes - Clean Mode

  • Download and install the free version of Malwarebytes
    Note: If you have Malwarebytes already installed, you don't need to install it again. Simply start from the next bullet point
  • Once Malwarebytes is installed, launch it and let it update his database. You might have to click on the little arrow by Scan Status in the middle right pane for it to do so
  • Once the database update is complete, click on the Scan tab, then select the Threat Scan button and click on Start Scan
  • Let the scan run, the time required to complete the scan depends of your system and computer specs
  • Once the scan is complete, make sure that the first checkbox at the top is checked (which will automatically check every detected item), then click on the Quarantine Selected button
    • If it asks you to restart your computer to complete the removal, do so
  • Click on Export Summary after the deletion (in the bottom-left corner) and select Copy to Clipboard. Paste the content in your next reply

If you are unable to run a scan using MBAM:

Follow the instructions in the thread below. Make sure to download the MBAR linked in it. Let me know if you're not able to launch it and run a scan.

Download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop. (compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10)

  • 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.
  • download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • 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

Still experiencing slowness after cleaning and removing a bit of adware? If so, follow the directions below.

 

Download and run the FREE online scanner from Free Virus Scan | Online Virus Scan from ESET | ESET

  • Place a checkmark in YES, I accept the Terms of Use, then click Start. Wait for ESET Online Scanner to load its components.
  • Select Enable detection of potentially unwanted applications.
  • Click Advanced Settings, then place a checkmark in the following:
    • Remove found threats
    • Scan archives
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • Click Start to begin scanning.
  • ESET Online Scanner will start downloading signatures and scan. Please be patient, as this scan can take quite some time.
  • When the scan is done, click List threats (only available if ESET Online Scanner found something).
  • Click Export, then save the file to your desktop.
  • Click Back, then Finish to exit ESET Online Scanner.

After the Eset scan has finished...please do this:

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.

Update Adobe Flash:

Adobe Flash Player 24 PPAPI Adobe Systems Incorporated 1/22/2017 19.6 MB 24.0.0.194

 

Uninstall these programs:

Avant Browser (remove only) Avant Force 11/30/2014  12.5.0.0

McAfee WebAdvisor McAfee, Inc. 9/7/2017  4.0.161

QuickTime 7 Apple Inc. 12/25/2016 69.1 MB 7.79.80.95

 

Disabling Startups and Tasks can simply be reversed if you find you absolutely need to have the ones in Startup that I suggested Disabling. But

Disable for now and test to see how disabling affects the speed of the computer.

 

After doing the above and rebooting....let me know if the sloooowness persists.

I'm worked through the disable tasks and things seem to be a bit faster.  I still need to update Flash and uninstall the 3 programs.  I will update again when I have completed those.  Thank you for your help!!

You can download the latest Adobe Flash at Adobe Flash Player Download

The installer should replace the existing flash player.

Be sure to PAY ATTENTION during install and UNcheck offers for anything other than Adobe Flash....especially Intel True Key.

 

While looking at your list of programs to see which browser(s) you had installed to give directions for Flash....I saw
