molasses has seeped into the veins of my computer since yesterday when I made the BOO-BOO of installing stopzilla, well I uninstalled it with REVO uninstaller, no help there, left the desktop shortcut behind...

have walked through the 1st four steps on the malware guide here, and was seeing some improvement, but back to forzen molasses...

I installed and ran TFC, System Restore, ERUNT, MBAM... things sped up for a bit, but now it takes many many minutes for a web page to even load... go to another place on the same web page,,, HOURGLASS... HOURGLASS, HOURGLASS...

and then I have the lovely issue of constant not responding which started months ago, and my mouse pointer freezes if I re-start the computer. To get it work I have to TURN the computer OFF.

I saved the logs from MBAM & TFC...

am also having issues w 100% CPU usage and low virtual memory...

in May of last year I had the memory increased from the original 128 MB memory stick to 2 512's... this computer IS old, but it took me until last May too fill up 128 MB, and now I am getting messages that I have 55 MB of memory left, and have not used this PC all that much since last May as I bought a laptop and had been using that... so what used up so much memory in 17 months versus the prior 8 years...

I am obviously not a geek of any kind and would appreciate whatever anyone here can offer...

I will finish up the list of downloads and so on under the malware thread... thought I was on the right road earlier today, but am ready for a screaming room right about now.

Thanks again for any and all help.

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.

Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.

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).
