    Lots of clicking / whirring noises getting laptop to boot. Eventually it does, but system is extremely slow. Would like help determining if this is hardware/software (malware?), or recommendations for remedying it.

    Have downloaded and run FRST. See attachments.

    Admins, you can close this thread. After doing a little more diagnosis and not finding anything apparent, I opted to replace the harddrive with a SSD.
