This is a topic that was started in the malware removal section of this site, I was told it would better serve my interests to post it here. Here is the link to that thread for any further needed info. Here is the 1st Post. http://www.geekstogo...-slow-computer/

Hi, I am new to this forum. I recently noticed my computer is slow, very slow. I have not been on the computer in question for a long time like 6-10 months or more. When ever I launch an application my computer will show the circle that goes around and then it stops like 10 seconds later and nothing happens, so I go to the task manager and see rundll32.exe is using 75-100 cpu and my computer slows, until I end the process. I have looked this up and found some answers, but all of them are outdated by at least a year or more. I didn't install anything yet nor the last time I used it, so if someone can tell me what pre-steps they need me to do, I will gladly. Thanks and sorry for any errors in advance.

Please note: The computer is not connected to the internet, so I have to download stuff via a USB then to the computer and install it. My internet connection on other computers is slow so it may take me a day or two to get back to this topic. Also, my computer is a 64 bit Windows 7 Home premium E-Machines, 500 Gb, I am only using 243 gb of the total hdd. Thanks again, I cannot risk formating this computer, it has a lot of important and unique things on it, pictures,videos,etc. I will try to do anything to make the experts job any easier.

Thanks, Bests

How does it behave if you boot to Safe Mode with Networking? If better then something is starting at boot that is causing the problem.

Advanced startup options - XP
Advanced startup options - Vista
Advanced startup options - Windows 7

Use msconfig to determine what is causing the problem

These are good tutorials on using msconfig in XP, Vista or Windows 7:
How to use msconfig in Windows XP
How to use msconfig in Windows Vista
How to use msconfig in Windows 7 and Windows 8

Click on Start then Run, type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Startup tab (for Windows 8, the Startup tab has a link to open Task Manager/Startup tab. Use that.), record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Reboot and see if it runs better.
If yes then use msconfig to enable several items at a time till you find the culprit.

If no, start msconfig and click on the Services tab.
Check the Hide All Microsoft Services box, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Again, do a regular boot, see if it runs normal.
If yes then use msconfig to enable services till you find the culprit.

Once you've found the culprit, uninstall it or find out how to eliminate it from your system. Simply disabling it in msconfig is a temporary fix at best.
Enable everything else you disabled.s

PLEASE IGNORE the advice posted in post 6.

You need to format your system.
Virus has entered in system storage.
Microsoft Security Essentials is nothing.


and continue with my colleague Ztruker

@ arthurthomason there is certainly a time and a place to reformat. Most security "experts" say any infected system should be reformattted, and most shops do it for ease of repair. Here we believe in cleaning/fixing systems, and formatting only as a last resort.

Create a new account to test with. Pick a name you can live with in case you need to keep it.

Control Panel / User Accounts / Create new account.

Logon with the new account. How does it run?

Also, download and install CCleaner from the following link: CCleaner - Standard

During installation, uncheck the option to install the Yahoo toolbar.

Start CCleaner. Click on Tools (ICON) and Select the following BUTTONS to create two (2) text files:

* Uninstall > Save to text file (install) – bottom right corner of app window
* Startup > Save to text file (startup)

Locate and open each saved file in the ‘Documents’ FOLDER:

* Copy and paste the contents of each file into your next post (2 files).

I know this is somewhat painful having to use USB to port stuff back and forth but I would like to see the information. A lot of it was available in your malware thread but scattered around.

OH MY GOD! I created a new account as per instructions I tried running some programs and it worked! I couldn't believe it! It actually worked. I will get you the requested logs in a little while, but I just wanted to let you know that it works on the new account. If I could I would hug the crap out of you for just giving me this ray of hope. :) :)

I don't see anything that is "bad" though there are some you could disable from starting when you boot.

First, read here: Fix a corrupted user profile

Once you copy everything over from the old, corrupted account to the new one, test for awhile. If all is well and nothing is missing then delete the old account and it's files.

All these can be disabled using CCLeaner. Once disabled, reboot and see how the computer runs. If any problems, go back and enable the ones you need, but I don't think there will be any.

You could also consider uninstalling these:

µTorrent 8/2/2010 2.0.0


You also have quite a few games installed. If you are not using them any longer, uninstall them.
