hard drive won't stop running
I'm running a Dell 4600 with Windows XP. Until recently, the PC was relatively quick but now it's virtually crawling. The hard drive seems to be working almost nonstop. I'm unsure what's happened but I'd give anything to know how to speed it back up again. I've tried running a registry repair as well as defrag but that doesn't seem to make any difference at all. Any help will be extremely appreciated. Thanks.

Have you ran a virus and spyware program to see if you might have a virus ?

Stop using registry "cleaners" before you break a bunch of programs and damage the operating system. And get rid of whatever programs you may be using that claim to clean/boost/optimize your computer and make it run better - which it won't.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Go here to download and save Trend Micro HijackThis 2.0.3. Close all open windows first, then install it in its default location. Run a scan with it - which should take 30 seconds or less. Save the resulting log in Notepad. Return here, then copy-and-paste the entire log here.

Do the following in the order listed:

Uninstall Uniblue Registry Booster and Windows Defender and all that StopSign eAcceleration crap.

Restart your computer.

Go into the C:\Program Files folder and delete the entire Uniblue and Windows Defender and eAcceleration/Acceleration Software folders - if they're still there.

Restart your computer again.

Go here to download and save Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Don't install it nor do anything with it yet.

Go here to download and save SUPERAntiSpyware. Don't install it nor do anything with it yet.

After all of the above has been done, run a HijackThis scan and post a new log here.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Your computer is infested with spyware and malware. There's a lot of work to do.

I was able to uninstall Uniblue Registry Booster, Windows Defender, and Stop Sign.
I restarted my computer.
I went into program files. Uniblue and eAcceleration didn't exist. Windows Defender was there but when I tried to delete the foler, I received a popup that said cannot delete MpClient.dll: Access denied.

Is it okay to continue with the restart and downloading the malware and antispyware and rerunning HijackThis?

Yes. Download and save MBAM and SAS for now and don't install them yet. Run a HijackThis scan and then post that new log here.

I may be going off-line soon for the night. If I don't reply back after you do the above, I'll be back in the morning.

Open the Windows Defender folder and delete the files one-by-one until the folder is empty, then try to delete the folder.

Go into Start - Run - MSCONFIG - OK - Startup(tab).

Remove the checkmark in Windows Defender or MSASCui.exe

Click Apply - OK - Exit Without Restart.

Go into Start - Run - SERVICES.MSC - OK.

Expand the services window so you can see the list.

Double-click on Windows Defender

Change "Startup Type" from Automatic to Disabled.

Click Apply - OK and then close the services window.

Install both Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware.

Allow them to update the definition files during the install process.

Restart your computer after they're both installed.

Don't do anything else with them yet.

Go into the C:\Program Files folder and try to delete the Windows Defender folder again.

After all of the above has been done, start HijackThis and run a scan.

Return here and then post that new log here.

Good morning. Just wanted to say thank you for your continued help. Your kindness is amazing.

I was now able to delete all Windows Defender files except mpshhook.dll and the folder itself. Everything else has been deleted.

He did mention that my PC is infested with spyware and malware so I'm certain he's noticed. I've been running what I thought was a quality virus protection software (StopSign) but apparently it didn't catch problems I was depending on it to find.

Phantom010:

I saw that O4 log entry. Let's see if MBAM and/or SAS gets rid of it - along with all the other spyware and malware in that computer. If it doesn't, we'll get one of the malware experts to intervene.

Start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and run its update function to get its definition files up-to-date.

After that's done, run a "quick scan" with it.

When the scan is finished, select and remove EVERYTHING that it found.

Restart your computer to complete the removal process, if prompted to.

Start SUPERAntiSpyware and run its update function to get its definition files up-to-date.

After that's done, run a "quick scan" with it.

When the scan is finished, select and remove EVERYTHING that it found.

Restart your computer to complete the removal process, if prompted to.

(2 important things to remember: Don't use your computer while it's scanning, and make sure to select and remove EVERYTHING that's found.)

Advise me when that's done, then I'll give you instructions for posting the scan logs here.
