Using the "Cleaner" and "Registry" features of CCleaner on a regular basis is NOT advisable because you risk damaging Windows and breaking programs and generating error messages and creating overall havoc with your computer.

Stay away from cleaner/optimizer/booster/tuneup/tweak type utilities, no matter what they claim they can do.

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

Right-click MY COMPUTER, then click Properties.

Advise what's listed in the Computer: section at the bottom of the "General" tab - exactly as you see it there.

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

What's the brand name, model name, and model number of that computer?

Is it a desktop or a laptop/notebook?

The processor is running at its rated speed and hasn't throttled down to a slower speed.

There's only 512 MB of RAM , so you should consider maxing it out to 1024 MB(1 GB).

The hard drive is getting full , so you should consider doing some "decluttering".

Hopefully, you've been backing up and saving your irreplaceable data in external media.

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

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.

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

Start HiJackThis.

Click on the "Open The Misc Tools Section" button.

Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button.

Click on the "Save List" button.

Save the "uninstall_list.txt" file somewhere.

It'll then open in Notepad.

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

I've never used

AutoCAD

but I've heard that it's system-hungry, so it's probably putting too much of a load on that computer.

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

Get rid of

CCleaner

Cleanup!

MyDefrag


before you wind up trashing your computer with them.

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

Get rid of

Panda Cloud Antivirus

and then replace it with

Microsoft Security Essentials 4.0.1526.0

which is lighter and more user-friendly and does a better job and is well recommended here.

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

Mozilla Maintenance Service

is an extra that automatically installs when you install Mozilla Firefox 12.

It isn't needed, so get rid of it.

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

Click Start - Run, then type in

%temp%

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.

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.

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

Remove the checkmark in these startup entries:

AdobeARM

GoogleUpdate

msmsgs


After you're done, click Apply - OK/Close - Exit Without Restart.

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

Expand the services window so you can see the list more clearly.

Double-click on these service entries, one at a time, to open their properties window:

Adobe Flash Player Update Service

Google Update Service

Google Update Service

Google Updater Service


If "startup type" is set on Automatic, change it to Manual, then click Apply - OK.

After you're done, close the services window and then restart the computer.

When the small System configuration Utility window appears during restart, ignore its message.

Put a checkmark in the lower left of that window BEFORE you click OK to close it.

Start HiJackthis, then click "Do a system scan and save a log file".

Save the new log that appears, then copy-and-paste it here.

Start HiJackThis, then click "Do a system scan only".

After the scan is finished in about 30 - 60 seconds, put a checkmark in these log entries:

O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-18\..\Run: [DWQueuedReporting] "c:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\MICROS~1\DW\dwtrig20.exe" -t (User 'SYSTEM')

O4 - HKUS\.DEFAULT\..\Run: [DWQueuedReporting] "c:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\MICROS~1\DW\dwtrig20.exe" -t (User 'Default user')

O8 - Extra context menu item: Add to Google Photos Screensa&ver - res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\GPhotos.scr/200

O9 - Extra button: Messenger - {FB5F1910-F110-11d2-BB9E-00C04F795683} - C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe

O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Windows Messenger - {FB5F1910-F110-11d2-BB9E-00C04F795683} - C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe


After you confirm that you selected the correct log entries, click "Fix Checked - Yes".

Close HiJackThis.

Note: This is just some "housecleaning" of the log and aren't problems.

How is the computer running now?

thanks so much...i feel it is running faster and we haven't had any 'freezes' in the past couple of hrs...which is only about 100% better already. i'll post again by the end of the wk w/an update. re maintenance: am i supposed to clean my temp folders, caches, etc. when things start to bog down? if so, how, exactly?

We're not done yet.

Do the following in the order that they're listed.

Note: DON'T use the computer while each scan is in progress.

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

Download and save the free version of

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.61.0.1400

SUPERAntiSpyware 5.0.0.1150

After they've been downloaded and saved, close all open windows first, then install them both.

Make sure to update their definition files during the install process.

Uncheck and opt to install any extras, such as toolbars and homepages, they may offer.

After they've been installed and updated, restart the computer.

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

Start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

Click "Scanner(tab) - Perform quick scan - Scan".

If infections or problems are found during the scan, the number of them will be highlighted in red.

When the scan is finished, click "Show Results".

Make sure that EVERYTHING is selected, then click "Remove Selected".

If you're prompted to restart to finish the removal process, click "Yes".

Start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware again.

Click "Logs"(tab).

Highlight the scan log entry, then click "Open".

When the scan log appears in Notepad, copy-and-paste it here.

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

Start SUPERAntiSpyware.

Select the "Quick Scan" option, then click "Scan your Computer".

If infections or problems are found during the scan, a list will appear and the number of them will be highlighted in red.

When the scan is finished and the scan summary window appears, click "Continue".

Make sure that EVERYTHING in the list is selected, then click "Remove Threats".

Click "OK - Finish".

If you're prompted to restart to finish the removal process, do so.

Start SUPERAntiSpyware again.

Click "View Scan Logs".

Highlight the scan log entry, then click "View Selected Log".

When the scan log appears in Notepad, copy-and-paste it here.
