I started getting these Microsoft messenger service menu telling me I have critical errors on my system and that I need to clean my registries. It tell me to download and run the program and then these pop up will stop. Only thing is that each time one of these pop up occur, it list a different registry cleaner program. Now my computer is booting up slower and when I hit the start button, the menu slowly fade in. Also my windows pages are loading slower.
Is there a real problem with my registries or do I have virus, adware, spyware infection? Suggestions on how to correct this problem? :tazz:

Hello kfoster...

Your symptoms are caused by malware...DO NOT use any of the suggested Registry Scanners. They are a ploy to get you to spend (waste) your money on worthless software.

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the Start Here.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself...then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Be patient, the Malware Forum is a very busy place and a two or three day wait is not unusual. DO NOT REPLY TO OR BUMP YOUR OWN LOG. If it shows a reply it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
