Slow bootup and slow response

Unread postby fig » August 21st, 2007, 1:27 pm

My computer has been bogged down lately and I can't seem to figure it out. I'm getting a lot of PUPs and Program Access prompts from McAfee.

Here's my HJT log:

Hi fig and welcome to the forums.

My name is Dave. I would be glad to take a look at your log and help you with solving any malware problems. HijackThis logs can sometimes take a while to research so please be patient and I'd be grateful if you would note the following:
  • I will working be on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine appears to be clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.

Everything I post must be checked by a teacher so please be patient as we go through the fix.

For now we are going to use HJT to create a list of your currently installed programs.
    1. Open HijackThis and click on the Config... button in the "Other stuff" section (lower right hand corner).
    2. Click on the Misc Tools button.
    3. Click on the Open Uninstall Manager... button.
    4. Click on the Save list... button.
    5. Save the file uninstall_list.txt to a convinient location. This should open Notepad with the list.
    6. Please Copy and Paste the list into your next reply.

Just noticed your version of HijackThis is out of date and a beta version. Please download the newest version, HijackThis v2.0.2.
Be sure to replace your old HijackThis.exe with this new one by saving over it or deleting your old one before downloading the current version.

Please repost a new updated log.
