Very Slow

Unread postby curlylad » September 8th, 2012, 8:56 am

The system is very slow at start up, it wont let me update on microsoft update site, seems to be a graphics issue as well....if I close a message/window in centre of screen it closes 'line by line' from the top very slowly, Im thinking a paging file issue or graphics but I'll leave that for you to decide.

Hi curlylad, long time no see. :)

OK your HJT log isn't telling me anything, so lets run a few more scans and see if they throw a light on what's going on.


Download OTL by OldTimer to your Desktop.

If you already have a copy of OTL delete it and use this version.

  • Double click OTL.exe to launch the programme.
  • Check the following.
    • Scan all users.
    • Standard Output.
    • Lop check.
    • Purity check.
  • Under Extra Registry section, select Use SafeList
  • Click the Run Scan button and wait for the scan to finish (usually about 10-15 mins).
  • When finished it will produce two logs.
    • OTL.txt (open on your desktop).
    • Extras.txt (minimised in your taskbar)
  • Please post me both logs.


Download TDSSKiller.zip and extract it to your Desktop.
  • Double click on TDSSKiller.exe to launch it.
    • If using Vista or Windows7, when prompted by UAC allow the prompt.
  • Click on Start Scan
  • The scan will run.
  • When the scan has finished, if it finds anything please click on the drop down arrow next to Cure and select Skip
  • Now click on Report to open the log file created by TDSSKiller in your root directory C:\
  • Post the contents in your next reply please.


Please download Farbar Service Scanner ... by Farbar and save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click FSS.exe to run it. (Vista - W7 users: Please right click on FSS.exe and select Run As Administrator).
  • Select the following options ....
    • Internet Services
    • Windows Firewall
    • System Restore
    • Security Center
    • Windows Update
    • Windows Defender
  • Press the Scan button.
  • When finished, a text file named FSS.txt will be created on your desktop.
  • Copy/Paste the contents in your reply please.

Summary of the logs I need from you in your next post:
  • OTL.txt
  • Extras.txt
  • TDSSKiller log
  • FSS.txt

Please post each log separately to prevent it being cut off by the forum post size limiter. Check each after you've posted it to make sure it's all present, if any log is cut off you'll have to post it in sections.

Due to lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
