Hello and thank you for reading my post.


First, please let me apologize if I am posting this on the wrong forum.


My wife's laptop Is a Lenovo ThinkPad R400 with 2 GB or RAM & about 58% of it's 148GB storage used on the Windows 10 o/s and is running slow.  It takes time to boot up; and launching apps & internet browsers can sometimes take what seems like a couple of minutes to open.


I regularly clean the temp files, cache and old registry.  I clean the registry via Ccleaner and Super antispyware scans.


I did the cleanup before running a FRST log and looking at task manager.  Task manager is showing Memory toggle between 75%-81%.  CPU & Disk started off with high numbers but after a couple of minutes togged between 3% and 30%.


The FRST Addition log mentions a trojan virus, but I believe that occurred because Microsoft Windows Security was preventing FRST 32-bit from downloading, because it thought it was a virus.  I couldn't download it in safe mode either so turned off Windows Security temporarily. 


Anyhow, I attached the FRST logs incase it helps and if there are any tips on speeding up the laptop response rate, it's greatly appreciated.


Thanks and have a wonderful week ahead.
