Jwang and I ran a number of scans and found no more malware on the computer. This is my original post:
Hi all, I'm running an Acer Extensa 4640Z that came with Vista, but 6 months ago I put Windows 7 on. I haven't had many problems sans the occasional audio stuttering, no matter the program. Acer's site didn't have any specifically Windows 7 audio drivers for the computer either, so I'm not sure if that's related. But as of recent, the computer, on and off, has been stuttering, even after a reboot, and there really aren't many programs or applications on it. I got zero results with HouseCall, and Spybot cleared the few pieces of malware on it. It's a generally clean computer.
But how can I tell if my programs are hardware or software related? I'm worried, that while moving, the harddrive was damaged and that's what's responsible for the "skipping" or "stuttering" of my computer's performance. It's been alright in the past hour, but I'm having occasional "skipping" when playing media files. For my media drivers I use the Combined Community Codec Pack. But I want to try detecting other issues that are making these problems.
