Almost unusably slow computer

Recommended Posts

Let's go ahead and scan with Kaspersky antivirus. It doesn't look like there is any infection left but it could be configuration issues on the box or damage from an infection maybe.


Please download and run the following Kaspersky antivirus to remove any found threats

Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool

Let me know if it finds anything

I scanned with Kaspersky and it didn't find anything.  The computer is running much better-thank you for all your help.

Great, glad to hear. I'll go ahead then and close you're topic and wish you well.

If you do need anything else please let us know.

Don't forget about backing up your personal data.

Backup Software



A lot of reading here but if you take the time to read a bit of it you'll see why/how infections and general damage are so easily inflicted on the computer. There is also advice on how to prevent it and keep the system working well. Don't forget about good, solid backups of your data to an external drive that is not connected except when backing up your data. If you leave a backup drive connected and you do get infected it can easily damage, encrypt, delete, or corrupt your backups as well and then you'd lose all data.
Nothing is 100% bulletproof but with a little bit of education, you can certainly swing things in your favor.

If you're not currently using Malwarebytes Premium then you may want to consider purchasing the product which can also help greatly reduce the risk of a future infection.


Thank you and take care
