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

Recently my laptop (Dell Studio 1537) has crashed with the blue screen about 4-5 times now while using it. Also it has slowed down quite a bit during internet usage and/or offline work. Would an expert be able to help me find any system or security issues and help me optimize my system so it works faster? I will post the dds logs as well if that helps any.

The massive number of programs and services that are auto-starting and running in the background isn't helping with speed and performance.

How was Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 obtained?

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

Get rid of

uTorrent

Lavasoft Ad-Aware

IObit Advanced SystemCare 5

CCleaner

Java(TM) 6 Update 7


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

Update Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware, then run a quick scan with each one, then select and remove EVERYTHING they find.

I downloaded MS Enterprise as a torrent :/ Was that a mistake?

I got rid of all the programs that you listed (although I like using Ccleaner. Is there any programs like it that you'd recommend?)

Ran MalBytes & Super Anti Spyware...here's the logs:

I suspected you did.

If you're going to use Torrent downloads, you can expect to have issues with your computer.

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

Go here and click the green "Download latest version" link to download and save HiJackThis 2.0.4

After it's been downloaded and saved, close all open windows first, then double-click the saved file to install it.

Allow it to install in its default location - C:\Program Files.

After it's been installed, start it and allow its main window to load.

Uncheck "Do not show this window when I start HiJackThis".

Click "Do a system scan and save a log file".

When the scan is finished in 30 - 60 seconds, a log file will appear.

Save that log file.

Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE log file here.

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

Click Start - Run, then type in

%temp% (% is the percentage symbol on the number 5 key)

and then click OK.

Click Start - Run, then type in

c:\windows\temp

and then click OK.

Once those 2 temp folders appear and you can view their contents, select and delete EVERYTHING that's inside them.

If a few files resist being deleted, that's normal behavior. Leave them alone and delete EVERYTHING else.

If a massive number of files are being deleted, the computer may appear to "hang". Be patient and wait for the deletion process to finish.

After it's done, restart the computer.

I also followed through with the 2nd part of your post as far as deleting the files within the temp folders and restarting the computer.

You need to start the computer in normal mode instead of in safe mode before starting HiJackThis and running a scan and submitting a log.

Safe mode doesn't display all the log entries like normal mode does.

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

Go to Start - Run - MSCONFIG - OK - "Startup" tab.

Write down ONLY the names in the "Startup Item" column that have a checkmark next to them.

If the "Startup Item" column isn't wide enough to see the entire name of any of them, widen the column.

Submit those names here in a vertical list.

Make sure to spell them EXACTLY as you see them there.

Both HiJackThis logs are the exact same logs in "safe mode with networking".

You've got a number programs and extras in that computer that I'm not familiar with, so I don't really know if any of them are causing the slowness or blue screen issues.

Okay. I did everything you listed in post #11 (also removed the checkmark beside startup item Paltalk because it's a messenger program I use but on rare occasions)

As for the HijackThis log, I don't know. I booted in normal mode and regenerated a log but it still shows "Boot mode: Safe mode with network support". Not sure if that's what you're referring to but if it is, I don't know why it comes up that way.

By the way, thank you so much for the support you've given me up to this point flavallee. I really do appreciate it.

It's actually running much better and haven't had any BSODs so far up to this point. Thank you. It still doesn't run as fast as I'd like it but I'm guessing it might have to do with the memory? What would you say? And I've read around that Windows 7 runs better than Vista, is that true? And lastly, if you have some general guidelines for me as far as maintaining my system and keeping it running well (I've decided that I won't do torrents anymore lol ) I'd like to know them. THANK YOU MUCH!
