I was here a little under a year a go with a malware problem and you guys helped me so much, and I was in such a state of panic, I can't thank you all enough!
So, naturally, when having trouble with my computer I thought I should see if you guys could help me out like you did before!
THE PROBLEM: Recently, I downloaded a couple things to my computer: mostly Yahoo-based systems relating to my geocities site I maintain through them, Real Player, and Firefox, and that's pretty much it. However, for the last month or so, my computer has been a bit sluggish. It takes a while for websites to load in, it doesn't start up as fast as it used to, etc. I checked my memory and it's only at 59.4 GB of free space out of 76.6 GB total, so I don't think that's the problem. I remove my Temporary Internet Files and Cookies, as well as run ad-aware, spybot, and Microsoft Anti-Spyware about every 2 - 3 weeks.
I'm at a loss as to what to do. Any ideas? I have a rebuilt Compaq PC [rebuilt as of 11/05] and use Windows XP as my operating system, along with Microsoft Office. I still have CleanUp!, ewido, smitRem, and Hijack This on my computer from the malware incident.
[I'm sorry if I've posted this is the wrong forum, by the way.] Any help would be appreciated!
