Now my computer is dramatically slower than its ever been.

Sorry to hear that!
 
After seeing the ComboFix log I can tell you that I'm not surprised. The files in the Temp folder that CF removed are a portend of lurking bad news. Let's see if we can't flush out the baddies with these next scans.

Well I tell you what, My OS startup time is noticeably faster and after I disabled the unneeded processes that were turned back on through these steps, programs like my web browser are running a tick smoother. Must of removed a bunch of spyware, thanks for that.

 

Ccleaner drive wipe must just stop if the drive is clean, that has to be the case. I just wish Piriform had a clear yes or no answer to this on there help page.

 

I did notice 2 fragmented files and one fragmented folder when I run defrag, I wish I could fix that some how. Besides that I'm good I guess.

I'm glad we did some good :)

Wish I could help you there, but, I don't know the tool that well. Some Helpers here adore it and others don't. I'm not a big fan of Registry Cleaners as there are other ways to acheive a better result. If you are using ccleaner to Clean your Registry, there's a better chance that it will cause problems rather than fix them. By way of example, part of the OTL fix that I did for you are things that ccleaner is "supposed" to do. On the other hand, if you're looking to clean up Temp files, then TFC will do it (here) without touching your Registry.

 

 

I did notice 2 fragmented files and one fragmented folder when I run defrag, I wish I could fix that some how.

 

You can chase fragmented files for a long time and still not defrag everything. Sometimes it's like chasing shadows.

 

BTW, you know that a fragmented file is not a broken, damaged or useless file, just a file that is in two or more pieces on the HD rather than in contiguous space. If you had hundreds or more, I'd chase that, but two? You'll never notice a speed difference with two.

 

 

Besides that I'm good I guess.

 

Well, not quite ;)   I just wanted to see how things are at your end before I head into the final cleanup. You'll be surprised at what MBAM and ESET will do to for a final clean of your system. Also, I will removed all my diagnostic and repair tools in the final step, but feel free to hang on to MBAM and ESET and use them every once in a while.

Good news ----- Your log appears clean! :yeah:  

 

My best suggestion is that you update Internet Explorer to the current version. There are four threat vectors that hit PC's hardest these days, Adobe vulnerabilities, Flash Vulnerabilities, Operating System/IE vulnerabilities and use of P2P software. You are good on all except Explorer. I will note that XP is in limited update these days, but you know that right?

 

That said, I'm going to send you on your way! If you have questions, issues, etc. Don't hesitate to stop back.

 

A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following piece of code 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 ransom-ware. (This is really important!)

CryptoPrevent.JPG

Malwarebytes.

Update and run weekly to keep your system clean

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read our little guide How did I get infected in the first place ?Keep safe wavey.gif.pagespeed.ce.4AQn4GwL8t.gif

 

If you have any questions or further problems, feel free to stop back It's been a pleasure!!

 

I keep the topic open for a few days in case you have questions. xthumbsup.gif.pagespeed.ic.7aXFW0A4z_.pn

Everything is done exept updating Internet Explorer, Because I am using XP I can only update IE to version 8 and that means there is no auto update for it. Since there are no more updates that I can get for XP or IE, this makes IE nothing more than a security risk unless I update my OS or switch to a Linix OS.

 

How can I remove IE from Windows XP?

Well I went to MS and tryed to download IE 8 for XP and it told me my system is not compatible. It said I must upgrade my OS, lol MS is full of prune juice. Anyways, now I don't know how to upgrade, disable or remove IE.

In Control Panel there is an option, on the left I think, Turn Windows Features On or Off. You can turn off IE there.

Were you able to turn IE off as you wanted to do? Do you still need help?
