One day I was turning on my computer and it came on but would not go to the Windows log on screen, i blew it off and thought it was over heated or something and would use it the next day fine. but ever since that one day my comp has been running slow as [bleep], the sound lags, games lags, everything lags, and it takes forever to start up, sometimes going through the windows loading screen 3 times! i've downloaded virus scan after virus scan but i could not find anything. this is really getting to be a pain and i liked to know what it is, how to stop it, and how to prevent it!!

Hello benzin234 and Welcome to Geeks To Go!

Please read "ALL" of the instructions before proceeding:

Please read this post completely, it may make it easier for you if you copy and paste this post to a new text document or print it for reference later.


* Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
  • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
I would like you to generate a "Add/Remove Software list" log using the HijackThis application. Here is how you can do this:

Restart your computer.

* Open Hijackthis, In the lower right corner click the "Config..." (Configuration) button.
* Once in the "Configuration" panel, click "Misc Tools" button.
* Then click the "Open Uninstall Manager..." button.
* The "Add/Remove Programs Manager" panel should appear.
* In this panel click the "Save list" button.
* Save the "uninstall_list.txt" file to its default location.
* Then copy and paste the notepad text that appears in the generated "unistall_list.txt" file in a reply to this post.

In your next reply, please include these log(s):

* HijackThis log (new)

* Uninstall List


Also, please let me know how things are running now and if you encountered any problems while you were following the instructions I posted.
