Hello.
Lately I've been experiencing noticable drops in performance, and random application exits and system reboots. Following steps i read thru on the site, i used ad aware, spybot, and cleanup, and visited housecall.antivirus.com for a scan. According to them i'm clean, but im still performing sub-par. Also, a quick glance at msconfig verifies that pokapoka70, lockx, and a mysterious blank entry are still active. I would simply disable them, but i read that it is better to leave them active when performing scans.
Thank you in advance for any help, i'll be posting my HJT report shortly
-Ben

Hi pantlessBen
Welcome to Geeks to go

Please download LQfix.exe and place it on your desktop.
Double-click LQfix.exe and click install.
Leave the default settings. If you change them, the fix will fail.
Make sure 'Launch LQfix' is checked. After clicking finish in the install, the fix will start.
Follow the prompts on the screen. Your system will reboot afterwards.
Your system may take longer than usual to start up this one time; please be patient.
