I forgot to do this:

 

When you receive the following message, click to select the Don't show this message or launch the System Configuration Utility when Windows start check box, and then click OK.

 

Since I cannot copy/paste windows here so you can see them - which surely is a bother - there are 3 choice of startup with the

Systems Configurations Utility window which is now on the Desktop.

 

Normal

Diagnostic

Selective.

 

Should I do it over again?

Ok, I hit Start Up. AvastUI is checked.

 

What do I do?

 

Please just  let me know that and I need to quit doing this for a bit.

 

I am feeling so antsy.

 

I will check back in a while.

This will remove the tools we have used

 

 

I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems 

 

Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean  :thumbsup:

 

A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset  System Restore points:

 

Download and run Delfix

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programmes:

 

CryptoPrevent install this programme to lock down and prevent crypto ransome ware

CryptoPrevent.JPG

 

Malwarebytes.

Update and run weekly to keep your system clean

It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

 

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this little guide  Best security practices Keep safe  :wave:

I thought I did. I did it again.

 

It take about a half a minute to load once I click on the Firefox icon.

So it is Firefox where the biggest slowdown is

 

Lets reset it to default initially

 

Follow the steps here and let me know if there is an improvement https://support.mozi....70138588,d.ZGU

I have done reset before and I just did it. restarted and open Firefox. It's somewhat faster.

 

I forgot too - one the desktop pic appears, it slow to load too. There are 3 icons in the dock ( mac term ) - bottom right corner

local connection

dell system detect

avast

 

maybe it's dell system detect?

 

anyway, it's no emergency but i am curious - when I click on dell in programs what is there is:

dell system detect

seems stupid.

 

just went to my dell but will go back later - heading  - it does scans and stuff.
