Everything still seems to be running poorly. I used to pull up a youtube video and it would be right there and load more then fast enough to watch it without a problem. Now sometimes itll load fast enough and sometimes everything loads very slowly. The same exact videos Ive loaded before that I've had no problem with will have problems loading now. Any little games I used to play now take forever to load or are to slow to play them. I've had a problem with the browser in the past where I had to reset my router completely because of Zlob and back then it seemed to run like it is now. I dont really thing I got that again but who knows. Its a possibility because other people have been on this computer too.

Go to

Start and then to Run
Type in Chkdsk /r Note the space between k and /
Click Enter ...It will probably ask if you want to do this on the next reboot...click Y
If the window doesn't shutdown on its own then reboot the system manually. On reboot the system will start the chkdsk operation
This one will take longer then chkdsk /f

Note... there are 5 stages...
It may appear to hang at a certain percent for a hour or more or even back up and go over the same area...this is normal...
DO NOT SHUT YOUR COMPUTER DOWN WHILE CHKDSK IS RUNNING OR YOU CAN HAVE SEVERE PROBLEMS
This can take several hours to complete.
When completed it will boot the system back into windows.

Reboot after your done running chkdsk /r...
then Go to Start...Run and type: eventvwr.msc press Enter
When Event Viewer opens, click on Applications... then scroll down to [b]Winlogon]/b] and double-click on it. This is the log created after running Checkdisk...copy and paste the log back here


We will advise after studying the log.

I was lookin in my Regedit to get rid of any junk files that might of been there when I deleted stuff. I happened across SwearWear in there and looked it up on google. Noticed that all the results stated it was malware. I deleted it and now my computer seems like its back to running like a champ. Im gonna play around with it and make sure but I believe my issues are resolved. Ill report back soon.

:D

I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal 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 the reguested logs in THAT forum.
If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

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).

Add a link to this topic so that malware tech can see what steps have been taken here :D :D

I already did all that with Mailprog and he said he didnt see any infections and sent me here. But I just got done looking though my Registry and lookin them up and found a couple viruses myself. 1 of them was a big one and I'm unable to get rid of it. Here is a a couple screenshots of it. Its the Legacy one that is supposedly a keylogger.

So you have a new infection and you can't get rid of it?
Why not just pm mailprog and ask him to reopen your topic and run a new set of scans?
All indications are a new infection from what you have described in your original post to what you just posted and i have quoted you above.

Its not a new infection because Ive seen it on here for a while now. Thats why when he said he didn't see anything else on computer I was going to show him that except he had told me to try a different forum. So I went with what he said to do first. Ill talk to him tho and see what he says. Thanks.

I'm just going off what you posted before:

Post 23 which I thought you meant like after the malware topic was finished.

Oh sorry. I didn't mean to be confusing. Ive been on regedit in the past and never seen Legacy on there until like 2-3 months ago. Whenever I delete it, it comes back. Not immediately but after an hour or so itll be back on there. I've run alot of anti-virus programs and none of them have ever found that and taken care of it.

ok going to try a couple of things so please be patient.


Let's make sure all drives are using DMA mode

Click the Start and then Right click My Computer
Select Manage and In the Computer Management window, select Device Manager
In the right pane, click to expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers
The click on the + sign next to your Hard drive controllers on both the Primary Controller and Secondary Controller
Right click on the drive and select Properties
Click the Advanced Settings tab
In the Transfer Mode box open the drop down menu and select DMA if available
Redo the steps to check each of the Controllers
Click OK and exit all windows
Reboot to make sure all settings take affect. Reply back with your results



Once you have posted the results and if nothing is changed then move on to the below steps.

Lets see what you have in your startup

Please click on
Start and then to Run
Type in msconfig and press Enter
Now click on Startups
Then uncheck everything and restart.
IMPORTANT! In case of laptop, make sure, you do NOT disable any keyboard, or touchpad entries.
If system boots correctly and is running smoothly and faster then we have a startup problem
Try going back into msconfig and check one item and reboot
Keep doing that till you have found the problem or all are finally checked.
Post back with the results
