Laptop Running Slow - But no detections found with Malwarebytes.


Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

I've got a Windows 7 laptop running Malwarebytes (premium) but for some reason it seems to have become delayed in the actions such as opening a document, webpage or even changing the sound level in the notification area.  

I've undertaken a full scan but it doesn't seem to find anything.  Can anyone advise what I can do.

If you are referring to the Malwarebytes logs, there is no need to send them if they haven't been detecting anything - but for future reference, (assuming you are using Malwarebytes version 3.x):

Open Malwarebytes and  when it opens, look on the left hand side and click 'Reports'
•To sort by date, click the Date / Time header box
•Double click on the most recent Scan Report
•Click 'Export'.
•Click 'Text file (*.txt)'
•In the Save File dialog box which appears, click on Desktop.
•In the file name: box, type a name for your scan log.
•A message box indicating 'File Saved' should appear.
Click OK and attach that log to your next reply.

Please do follow icotonev's instructions to download and run FRST and provide those logs for his review. :-)

Sorry to sound naive but how do I get the logs?


  • If you're already running Malwarebytes 3 then open Malwarebytes and check for updates. Then click on the Scan tab and select Threat Scan and click on Start Scan button.
  • If you don't have Malwarebytes 3 installed yet please download it from here and install it.
  • Once installed then open Malwarebytes and check for updates. Then click on the Scan tab and select Threat Scan and click on Start Scan button.
  • Once the scan is completed click on the Export Summary button and save the file as a Text file to your desktop or other location you can find, and attach that log on your next reply.
  • If Malwarebytes won't run then please skip to the next step and let me know on your next reply



Please download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system.

You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer.
  • Press the Scan button.


  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). If you've run it before it may not and you may need to select it manually
  • Please attach both logs to your reply if possible. Otherwise, you may copy/paste the logs directly if you have to, but an attachment is better.
  • To save attachments please click the link as shown below. Then browse to where your file is located and select it and click the Open button.

Alright, sorry for the delay. I reviewed your logs, and they are clean. No signs of infection whatsoever. So your issues aren't related to an active malware infection. You'll receive better assistance in the General Windows PC Help section.
