    HP Compaq running Win 7 started running very slow. Scanned with Adwcleaner and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, but did not solve. Assume virus but not able to eliminate it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi ront162aol,
    Let's find out why.
    Download and Run the Farbar Scan Tool
    • Download FRST64 and save to your Desktop.
    • Double click Frst64.exe to launch it.
    • FRST64 will start to run.
      • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
      • Press the Scan button.
      • When finished scanning, 2 logs will open on your Desktop, FRST.txt and Addition.txt
      • Please post them in your next reply.
    If you lose track of them, they will be saved in the same location as FRST64.exe
    Feel free to use separate replies if it's more convenient.
