Hardware: HP Pavilion dv5 Toshiba 500 GB External Drive Software: Windows 7 Home Premium OS Microsoft Security Essentials Malwarebytes Antimalware Pro I’ll try to make this as short as possible. About 3 weeks ago I had to reformat my computer because of a virus. Was running Symantec Endpoint Protection along with MSE (know not to do that now of course) and Spybot Search and Destroy. Symantec picked up the adware virus, but it wasn’t until trying Malwarebytes free (after scanning with Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool, Microsoft Security Scanner, and Trend Micro House Call) that I found out I had 7 trojan proxies along with the adware. I clicked delete to delete them all, was then sent to start up repair, and after backing up data I reformatted the hard drive. Did the various updates for MSE, MB (now Pro), and Windows after reinstallation, and everything seemed to run ok. MB did pick up two Trojan.Zbot viruses (currently in quarantine). Within that time I put the files from my external drive back onto the computer (scanned them with both AV and nothing came up). After about a week or so though, the computer started running much slower, and MSE kept turning off (did that a lot before when I had the viruses). Ran scans with both MB and MSE but nothing was picked up. Sometimes it works fine after a while of being on, but even as I typed this my power settings were changed from HP recommended to high performance without me doing so, and I had to type this in Microsoft Word because Internet Explorer 9 couldn’t recover the forums page. I update MSE and MB daily. I also followed the steps for compatibility issues with MSE and MB. So is there an answer as to why my computer is running slow and glitchy? I hope it’s not another virus. Thanks in advance for the feedback.
