Please look in windows task manager, processes, and write down which process is a heavy user of resources. Expand the page to full screen and write down cpu and memory usage. Do this when the computer is idling (no updates or scans running, mouse and keyboard not touched). Also, write down the value of System Idle Process.

If it isn't a typo

Please follow the procedures outlined here: Malware Removal Guide

You will need a PC which can connect to the internet

Run all the programmes as advised then post a current Hijack This Log in a new topic in the Malware Forum

For the purpose of accurate malware analysis, Hijack This Logs are only dealt with in the Malware Forum. Posting them anywhere else will result in a delayed response

If you are unable to run any of the programmes, please ask for advice in the Malware Forum
