Hey guys, I managed to remove a few viruses from my computer (with help from the irc room) a few days ago, but I'm still suffering some problems, my computer will no longer shut down, wh I request it it just has the "Windows is shutting down" screen permanently and nothing happens.

Also my computer has gone very slow, I've checked HiJack this, and used (Avast, SpySweeper, Ad-Aware, SpyBot and Spyware Doctor) to try and kill anything on it, but it's still running very slow.. I also tried cleaning up my disk (currently 10gig free) and defragmenting my hard drive using O&O Defrag 8.0.

Also, I've ensured using msconfig, the only operations running in the startup tab, is ctfmon (C:\windows\system32\ctfmon.exe).

Anyone have any ideas on what this could be?

Thanks.

Go to Start > Run and type sfc /scannow and press <Enter>. Have your CD ready in case missing or corrupted files need to be replaced.

Yeah I did this, and it spent around 30 minutes doing something, then went off and nothing happened.

Does that mean no files are corrupted?

I stopped the ctfmon from starting up, it's made my startup time faster but problems are still occuring and getting worse.

Myke,

Since you have an active HJT Log here, I strongly suggest you do not make any more changes to your system. Wait until you have been cleared by the HJT Team Member before doing anything else. Making changes while having an open log will negate the log and you will need to start all over.

I will close this topic until you have been cleared by the HJT Team. If you still have problems after being cleared. PM any staff member to have them reopen this topic. Thank You for your understanding.

Regards,
Animal, Forum Moderator
