Windows 7 Laptop very slow

Unread postby curlylad » January 5th, 2011, 9:56 am

As the title suggests. There are 4 users on the laptop, one of the kids used it and now it takes around 10 minutes to start up and constantly freezes.
I am posting this via another laptop as it takes an eternity to try to access the internet on the source P.C.
Here you go guys, maybe you could help an old MRU Graduate out here....please :)

Your HJT log shows that you're using a 64 bit operating system.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read before posting for help.

Unfortunately, the tools we use to analyze and remove infections do not work properly on a 64 bit operating system and their results cannot be relied upon. Because of this, it is almost impossible for us to correctly diagnose problems and the fixes we might offer could potentially do as much damage to your computer as any infection you might have.

Due to the reasons stated above, we do not at this time offer support for 64 bit operating systems. We are sorry that we are currently unable to assist you.

This topic is now closed.
