WHAT CAUSES THE DRAG AND SLOW STARTUP?
- Ewido Guard - just a trial version
- Trojan Hunter Guard
- SpySweeper Engine - just a trial version
- Symantec Service
We need to uninstall the following programs:
- Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs
- Please locate if they exist
- Trojan Hunter
- Click Uninstall
- Confirm with OK
I understand that having so many scanning and protection programs installed in your system makes you confident that malware won't get through it. However, that is the opposite of it, having too many of them defeats the purpose of each other since they come in conflict. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU INSTALL JUST ONE PROTECTION PROGRAM. (That would be your choice)
Optional Startups, usually NOT required:
Please close all remaining windows, disconnect from the internet, open HijackThis then click SCAN. Please put a check on the following items listed below:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AOLDialer] C:\Program Files\Common Files\AOL\ACS\AOLDial.exe
"AOL ISP software dialer; can be activated through a desktop shortcut"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Pure Networks Port Magic]
"Pure Networks Port Magic, as available in the latest version of the AOL® 9.0 Optimized SE software; automatically configures most in-home Internet gateways, improving access and performance for applications such as instant messaging, online gaming, and streaming music and video"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HP Component Manager] "C:\Program Files\HP\hpcoretech\hpcmpmgr.exe"
"Checks the internet for updated drivers/utilities for your HP product - update manually. Disabling will remove the error "Windows can\'t shutdown the computer because hpcmpmgr.exe can\'t be ended"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AdaptecDirectCD] "C:\Program Files\Roxio\Easy CD Creator 5\DirectCD\DirectCD.exe"
"DirectCD primarily allows you to drag and drop files onto a suitably formatted CD-RW disc. Unless you use this on a frequent basis it isn't required and is available via Start -> Programs. Start the program before inserting a DirectCD formatted CD-RW in the drive. A re-boot is recommended if you close Adaptec DirectCD before re-opening it again later"
