Hey guys, I'm new here and pretty confused by computers when something goes wrong. :thumbsup: My computer has been running very slow for almost two weeks and I've been getting trojan virus warnings from AVG. I ran a full scan with spyware doctor and trojan hunter and cleared my computer of everything that both of those scans turned up. Yet I still get a couple of 'virus detected' messages from AVG. They are for temp/optimize.exe and a trojan called downloader.dyfica.3.E. Also when I shut down I get a series of 'program not responding' pop ups for mim.exe, font capture, iexplore.exe and PdeSrv2.Event.Handler.Window.
Are these things the reason for the sudden slow performance? And what can I do to fix this? (bare with me and be detailed, please!) Thanks in advance.

Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.

Download HijackThis from:

HijackThis Download Site

Save this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program named hijackthis.exe. When the program opens click on the Config button, then click on the Misc Tools button, and click on the Check for update online button. When it completes checking/applying updates press the back button.

Now click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.

Create a reply to this post here and right click in message area and select paste to paste the log into the post.

Someone will reply to you after reading this post. DO NOT fix any entries unless you understand what you are doing.
