When I first built my computer and loaded windows, it worked super fast. Now, its slower then my older computer, which I thought was impossible. I mean...This is pathetic. I unistalled AVG cause there was a process running that is supposed to be a Trojan, and a program said AVG was running it. So, I deleted it, was prompted to restart, so I did. It took literally 10 minutes to shut down and restart. At worst, my old computer took 5 minutes. (P4 2.8, 1.5 gigs ram, ATI Radeon 9800). So, how do I fix this?
I have a theory its Microsoft forcing people to upgrade by putting out crappy updates. I mean, for my card, the newest driver is dated the beginning of last year...They come out with a new one but its Vista only. Woo...idiots.
So basically it started about 3 days ago, aprox. 4 days after this computer was built. I was playing Battlefield 1942, it froze. I tried 5 times, it froze in different spots at different times. I reinstalled. Same thing. Oblivion goes for about 30 minutes then crashes to the desktop. I then hit the window to maximize again, and it freezes. This has happened everytime as well. I also did older games, same thing, but done differently. Battlefield was the only one that froze the entire computer to where i had to manually shut it off.
Then today I randomly check my processes, and theres 2 running that I have never seen before. A couple sites say they are trojans. ScanningProcess.exe. The sites said it was W32.Beagle.DZ Trojan. I downloaded and ran alot of antispy and antiviruses...they found nothing. Then I looked into the trojan, and the processes running arent listed. And the ones listed are Trend Micro and Panda software. So..im confused.
I have ran, Zonealarm Security Suite 7, Yahoo antispy, AVG free, Adaware, Spybot, spyware doctor and Superantispyware is running now. So far, nothing.
So, here I am. Out of Ideas and annoyed. (I also ran defrags, restarted, deleted programs, reinstalled, everything...and im still having problems.)
