    I like AVG lots but it seems it is making my pc slow.Do I need all the items at ,Security Components and Status overview on.Like email scanner and link scanner.Seems like I read somwhere where not all of these items need to be active.

    Is this in Windows 7 ??

    You might try disabling the Resident Shield in AVG and see if that speeds it up .. And I don't use the link scanner.

    AVG doesn't bother my XP MCE much ... But It really made W7 a crippled snail.
    I haven't checked W7 lately to see if any AVG updates are better .. It's till set as I described.

    I depend on my ability to restore the OS in about 15 minutes .. And go light on AV.
    The resident shield is enabled in my XP MCE .. But maybe this will tell you something ??

    I doubt very seriously that AVG9 is making your computer slow. I personally use it in 2 older desktops with XP SP3.

    Go here and click the green icon to download and save HijackThis 2.0.2. Close all open windows first, then install it in its default location. Start it and run a scan - which should take less than 30 seconds. Save the resulting log in Notepad. Return here, then copy-and-paste the entire log here.

    Im not very good at this but it looks like websites you have been on or downloaded off, But dont take my word for sure, I was just here to say I dont think that AVG is slowing your computer as I have Xp and have had AVG For a while now with no problems.

    Go here to download and save HostsXpert 4.3.

    Go here to download and save Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

    Do not install nor use either program yet.

    I've reported your thread to the "Malware Removal & HijackThis Logs" section for assistance by a malware expert.

    Start HijackThis, but don't run a scan.

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

    Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button.

    Click 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.

    Do the following in the order listed:

    Go here and click the green icon to download and save Sun Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0.18(6 Update 18). Don't install it yet.

    Go into Add Or Remove Programs and uninstall

    Java(TM) 6 Update 2

    Java(TM) 6 Update 3

    Java(TM) 6 Update 5

    Java(TM) 6 Update 7

    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1


    Restart your computer.

    Go into the C:\Program Files\Java folder and delete all leftover folders in it.

    (Note: The Java folder may no longer be present after uninstalling the above old versions)

    Install version 1.6.0.18.

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

    Uncheck the jusched startup entry.

    Click Apply - OK - Exit Without Restart.

    Go into Start - Run - SERVICES.MSC - OK

    Double-click the Java Quick Starter entry - if it's present.

    Change the startup type from Automatic to Manual and then click Apply - OK.

    Close the window and then restart your computer.

    When the small SCU window appears, put a checkmark in it and then click OK.

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

    I strongly suggest that you get rid of these programs:

    Registry cleaner/booster/optimizer/tuneup programs will do nothing to improve speed or performance. What they will do is break certain programs and damage the operating system.

    Please visit Combofix Guide & Instructions for instructions for installing the recovery console and downloading and running ComboFix.

    The only thing different from the instructions there is that when downloading and saving the ComboFix.exe I would like you to rename it to puppy.exe please.

    Post the log from ComboFix when you've accomplished that along with a new HijackThis log.

    Important notes regarding ComboFix:

    ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making it the default browser. This can easily be changed once we're finished.

    ComboFix also prevents autorun of ALL CDs, floppies and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security. If this is an issue or makes it difficult for you, please let me know. This can be undone manually when we're finished. Read HERE for an article written by dvk01 on why we disable autoruns.

    Note: During this process, it would help a great deal and be very much appreciated if you would refrain from installing any new software or hardware on this machine, unless absolutely necessary, until the clean up process is finished as it makes our job more tedious, with additional new files that may have to be researched, which is very time consuming.

    Also, please do not run any security programs or fixes on your own as doing so may compromise what we will be doing. It is important that you wait for instructions.
