System super slow after winpc defender removal


Recommended Posts

Hi,

After getting myself a nice copy on winpc defender, I used the malwarebytes anti malware sofware and behold it removed it.

My userinit.exe was gone (likely not mbam's faut) and prevented me from logging in. So I had to go reload it which was fun. Finally, I was able to login but its extremely slow. It looks like many clicks have something attached that is timing out or similar. Its pretty much unuseable. I tried reverting to a previous xp point but they all seem to have been compromised.

I'm rescanning with full now but Is there any hope for this install to return to its original 100% happy fast state? Or should I just reformat it and start fresh?

Thanks!

Andre
