Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:

It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged
Please do not run any other Auslogics programs other then this one as they may cause unwanted results.

I am not surprised that it was a litle slow

As I saw you had Panda Internet Security on your OTL log (not actually used in this forum - only in our Malware forum - however I had a look at the programs and processes from the aspect of the slowness)
You also have AVAST and it appears you have AVG2012

Additionally to that you really are on the limits of insufficient free apace on C drive
Drive C: | 29.81 Gb Total Space | 3.07 Gb Free Space | 10.31% Space Free | Partition Type: NTFS

You should really aim for 15%

You must ensure that you only have installed ONE real time protection anti-virus and one Firewall either Windows firewall or one of your choosing.
I see you also have Malwarebytes installed - on demand scan and that is OK. It does not provide real time protection and is recommended by us as one of the ideal AV Scans to support your resident active AV

You MUST ensure that you only have one AV running in real time protection, as two will actually fight against each other, cause all nature of problems and indeed may actually tend to engative the effectiveness of each

If it does not also provide an anti spyware, then you may run one of these as well and many of them work OK with an anti virus program.
However many AV`s provide anti=spyware/adware as well - such as for instance Microsoft Security Essentials
OR you may stay with AVAST and then use the free edition of SuperAntiSpyware which is NOT real time protection.
See this for your options.

Addtionally I would advise you to stay away from such programs as the Tune Up utilities etc. These make it go faster programs are mainly simply automated ways of the accepted housekeeping methods provided by Microsoft and IE or Firefox and unfortunately many of them - far from tune up - result in tune-down.
