    She says it freeezes, runs slow, needs to be restarted daily, boots slow, and shuts off unexpectedly. I am trying to help her but know nothing about Vista as all my computers run xp. Can anyone help?

    Please click HERE to download and install HijackThis.

    Run it and select Do a system scan and save a logfile from the Main Menu.

    The log will be saved in Notepad. Copy and paste the log in your next reply.

    IMPORTANT: Do not fix anything

    Finished with the temp files. Took over 30 minutes but removed 1,399 MB. All of the maintenance has been done at one point or another but not regularly. Here is the Hijackthis log:

    The answer is quite obvious. You are running two antivirus programs, a dinosaur version of AVG, and Norton. Never install more than one antivirus on a computer. It will make it slow, freeze and render it even more vulnerable.

    I would remove everything and replace it with the free Microsoft Security Essentials OR Avira Antivir.

    First, to remove AVG, run the AVG Remover.

    To remove Norton, run the Norton Removal Tool.

    ===================================================================

    I would also disable Windows Defender and install the free version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (no real-time scanning).

    You can also trim down those Startup programs. It'll speed up your Startups and increase overall performance by reducing the number of processes running in the background.

    Press the Windows key + R to open a Run box.

    Type msconfig.

    Select the Startup tab.

    The following items don't need to autoload with Windows and can be unchecked:

    Follow and complete all the instructions in posts #5 and #6.
    (My personal preference for an antivirus program is Microsoft Security Essentials 2.0.657.0)

    After you're done and have restarted the computer, submit a new HiJackThis log here.

    Several service entries will need to have their startup type changed from Automatic to Manual.

    A number of programs will need to be uninstalled, updated, or replaced.

    We haven't heard from you in over a month, and the HiJackThis log that you submitted today is the exact same log that you submitted in post #4, so we have no idea if you've completed Phantom010's instructions in posts #5 and #6, or what you may have done with that computer during that time.

    Go to Control Panel - User Accounts, turn off User Account Control(UAC), apply the change, then restart the computer.

    Start HiJackThis and run a new scan, then save that new log and submit it here.

    Why was there no reply back from you in 5 weeks(January 23rd - February 28th)?

    Have you completed Phantom010's instructions in posts #5 and #6?

    Have you turned off UAC per my instructions in post #10?

    I didn't see your post #7 so I thought after completing posts #5 and #6 I was done. Someone replied to another one of my threads a few days ago and thats when I noticed post #7. As I said earlier in the post I have chosen not to remove/disable/change every setting that is suggested because this is my wife's computer and I don't want to change the way the programs she frequently uses function. I did complete the step in #10 and as much as I am comfortable in #5 and #6.

    Since we have no idea what parts of the instructions in posts #5 and #6 you did do or didn't do, you need to advise us.

    Because it's your wife computer and you're hesitant to complete all of the instructions, maybe we should deal with her directly.

    I doubt talking to her would help. She is very computer illiterate and calls me even at work whenever something goes wrong, even the simplest things.

    I uninstalled AVG and left Norton since I still have time in my paid subscription left.

    I didn't remove the following for fear of changing how the computer or programs she uses operate:
