I see that you have ccleaner installed.
Hit the tools button then the start up button and disable all items except your norton aV.
Reboot the machine after.

I think that you will notice some improvement on your machine if you remove the programs below.


Rapport (Version: 3.5.1302.59)
Spybot - Search & Destroy (Version: 1.6.2)
TuneUp Companion 2.2.7 (Version: 2.2.7)
Trusteer Endpoint Protection (Version: 3.5.1302.59)
Uniblue RegistryBooster 2009
Uniblue RegistryBooster 2009 (Version: 3.0)
Wajam (Version: 1.67)
ZoneAlarm LTD Toolbar
iLivid (Version: 4.0.0.3276)

You should remove these with Revo free.
http://www.revounins...e_download.html

  • Open Elevated Command Prompt.
  • Click Start
  • All Programs
  • Accessories
  • Right-click Command Prompt
  • Click Run as administrator.
  • Now type or copy and paste the command below.

chkdsk /r /f /x

Hit Enter.

You will be presented with this.

cmd.PNG





Type Y and hit enter then reboot your machine allow the scan to finish.

Also looks like you had kaspersky on the machine at one time.

You should untick this in autoruns under the drivers tab.

+ "kl1" "Kaspersky Unified Driver" "Kaspersky Lab" "c:\windows\system32\drivers\kl1.sys" "01/09/2009 7:29 AM"



Also this one related to Hotspot shield.

All of these under the "Task Scheduler" tab can be unticked as well.

Close autoruns and reboot.

Run the kaspersky removal tool.
