My computer have been extremely slow and very weak.
I have had this problem for kinda long time now, but I think it becomes slower and slower.
I have scanned my computer for virus etc. but it seams to be nothing.
So I think my problem is rather that I may have too many programs installed and that the registry is too much scattered.
But is there any way to clean registry or something else to make computer less slow?
It seams that my computer have a LOT OF work to do even if I do NOTHING on the computer.
If I have only the web browser open the CPU runs up to almost 50%.
And that is way too much, I think.
So I don't know what the problem is.

Please, post some computer info:
- processor type, amount of RAM (hold Windows logo key, hit Pause/Break key)
- hard drive size/free space (open "My Computer", right click on hard drive letter, click "Properties")
- security programs in use (antivirus, firewall)


Download Autoruns for Windows: http://technet.micro...s/bb963902.aspx
No installation required.
Simply unzip Autoruns.zip file, and double click on autoruns.exe file to run the program.
Go File>Save, and save it as AutoRuns.txt file to know location.
You must select Text from drop-down menu as a file type:

Ok, here is the info:
AMD Athlon™ XP 2400+
2.00 GHz, 1,00 GB Ram

Drive C: 19,5 GB, Free: 2,61 GB
Drive D: 48,8 GB, Free: 11,2 GB
Drive L: 95,0 GB, Free: 82,9 GB
Drive M: 94,8 GB, Free: 15,0 GB

I have Avast, and a hardware firewall.

I did also download Autoruns for Windows and run it and saved it.
But the problem is that the file of AutoRuns text document is 6491 Kb large!
And it is only possible to upload files on maximum 500 Kb here.
So I couldn't upload that file.
So how do I do now?

You didn't follow my instructions and you created .arn file instead of .txt file.
Please, try again.

You're also running out of free space on drive C.

Got it. You have some unnecessary startups and we'll go there in a moment, but I'd like to see couple more things.

Download Security Check from HERE, and save it to your Desktop.

* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

Download Process Explorer: http://technet.micro...s/bb896653.aspx
Unzip ProcessExplorer.zip, and double click on procexp.exe to run the program.
Click on View > Select Colunms.
In addition to already pre-selected options, make sure, the Command Line is selected, and press OK.
Go File>Save As, and save the report as Procexp.txt.
Attach the file to your next reply.

It looks like your computer is infected.

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).
