Help! My computer is sooo-oo slow and freezes up. I just freed up alot of space by deleting files and I ran the defragmenting operation. I had to run a CHKDSK/f , as was schedulled by my computer's system. My anti-virus application ran its daily scan and found a "virus", yet it was not exactly a virus, but some kind of system gliche. I did some research and found out about a problem called the "svchost/windows update syndrome". What exactly is this and is my computer affected by it? What can I do about it?

Hello soap68,
Welcome to GeeksToGo.

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
