System cleaned, but still really slow

Recommended Posts


I was kindly redirected to this forum, hope this is the right spot.

I few months ago, my Windows XP got infected by a load of trojans and other malware, including the Vundo trojan, which brought my computer to its knees. I was unable to remove the malware until I came across Malwarebytes Antimalware, which has been running on my system ever since. Thank you very much for an excellent piece of software, I happily signed up for the full version.

Now, I run Spy Search and Destory (but not the teatimer), Adware, XP Antispy and Malwarebytes on top of each other. I dont know if this is a good idea to run all this stuff on top of each other?

I am not sure if I am still infected, but since Ive cleaned up as much as I think I can, and I would be grateful for an expert opinion.


Actually, just before running the Malwarebytes scan, I saw that 5 files was quarnetined, and the Vundo was back along with a few friends. I deleted all 5 files before scanning again, was this a mistake, keeping you from seeing valuable information?

Below is a HiJack This report and latest MBAM logfile.

Let me know in your next reply how things are now.

By the way, is there any reason why you don't have an Antivirus installed?

Thanks for a quick reply.

About 5 mintues after I posted the above, my disk failed. So it turned out that one of the reasons it was so slow was becuase of errors on the disk. Just bought a new one, and it is currently installing.

The software from Malware bytes will be among the very first things I install !

Thanks for the feedback. :)

Your computer was also infected though, so Please read my Prevention page with lots of info and tips how to prevent this in the future.

And if you want to improve speed/system performance after malware removal, take a look here.

Extra note: Make sure your programs are up to date - because older versions may contain Security Leaks. To find out what programs need to be updated, please run the Secunia Software Inspector Scan.

Happy Surfing again!
