Hi pgmigg, no problem executing the instructions. I have noticed no change. Would my processing power be improved if I expanded my memory?

Hello cbooth,
Would my processing power be improved if I expanded my memory?
Not too much but if you would like to keep using of this computer and your motherboard is supported more memory, you should do it. You need at least 2GB but even 1GB will be better. As I wrote in the beginning, the most existing problem of your computer is an age, then extremely small size of operating memory and low CPU frequency. The reasonable size (multiply memory size on 1.5) of swapping file cannot improve this case. Try to check you system by memory characteristics and select proper memory in MemoryTen Internet store - very good resource for any kind of memory...
I have noticed no change.
I hoped you already had some improvement in performance and keep to hope that at least the situation is not worse than before. In any case, you need to close all unused applications before opening of the new ones as well as to run CCleaner often.

Your latest set of logs appear to be clean! :cheers:

This is my general post for when your logs show no more signs of malware.
Before I give you instructions how to keep your computer clean and secure, you need to make a few additional steps.

Step 1.
Update Adobe Reader
Your version of Adobe Reader is out-of-date. There are serious security issues with older versions of Adobe Reader.

Please download the current version of Adobe Reader...Copyright © Adobe Systems Inc.
Please UNCHECK the box for the: Free McAfee® Security Scan Plus.
  1. Click the yellow Download now button. If you don't already have Adobe DLM... you may receive a prompt.
    Adobe DLM software removal instructions available here, if wanted.
  2. The Adobe installer will check your system and begin the installation process. Use the default installation parameters.
  3. When the installation is complete, please Close and re-open your Internet browser.

Adobe Reader XI - recommended (safety) program settings
When the program is open, click on Edit and select Preferences. In the categories below, use these settings:
  • Javascript - Uncheck Enable Acrobat Javascript.
  • Security (Enhanced) - Uncheck Automatically trust sites from my Win OS security zones.
  • Trust Manager- Uncheck Allow opening of non-PDF file attachments with external applications.

Step 2.
OTL - Run Fix Script
You should still have OTL on your desktop.
Important! Close all applications and windows so that you have nothing open and are at your Desktop.
  1. Double-click on OTL.exe to run it.
  2. Copy and Paste the following code into the Image text box. Do not include the word Code
    Code: Select all
  3. Click under the Custom Scan/Fixes box and paste the copied text.
  4. Click the Run Fix button. If prompted... click OK.
  5. OTL may ask to reboot the machine. Please do so if asked.

Step 3.
  1. Double-click on OTL.exe to run it.
  2. Press the CleanUp button.
  3. When done, you will be prompted to reboot your system to finish file removal, please select OK to reboot your computer.

Please don't forget to enable all your defense software!
