my computer is extremely slow to respond to commands. I have run virus scans with SUPERAntiSpyware and keep getting : Adware. Vundo/Variant-X32(Header)

I do the removal and then run another scan and it's still there.

Also my computer will not let me run a internet properties. it tells me that I need to be the administrator. I am. I tried the regedit where you change binary to zero but that did not work. i think i made it worse.
Thanks for the Help.

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post an OTListIt log in THAT forum.

I downloaded tfc and ran. was unable to download erunt, i did run malwarebytes and it detected and removed two infections. the notepad came up i did not copy, thought i could retrieve later but have been unable to find. I then removed AVG free edetion and downloaded Microsoft Sevurity Essentials. I ran a scan and it came back clean. I then tried to unistall SuperAnti spyware but have been unable to from the control panel. when i try to it says: The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.

Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to folder containing the installation package
WISCDDCBBF1270346BC938BBCC81A1EEAAA_4_25_0_1014.MSI in the box below

I tried searching folders but was unable to find anything. Since I can't remove the spyware program i thought i should ask before i try to continue on with the fix.
Can you recommend
