    I have had this PC for a couple years. Ive had to have it cleaned a couple times. It now is acting like it did before. Slower and slower and not opening some programs at all. What should I do? I have Malware, Windows Defender and CCleaner and have run them all. With Malware I keep getting the same things to Quarintine each time.

    Hi Scuba69, Welcome to the Tech Support Guy malware removal forum.

    I am iMacg3 and will be helping you with your computer problems.

    Please keep the following information in mind before we begin:
    • Do not run any fixes or tools on your system unless I request that you do so.
      • Running additional tools on your system can interfere with the clean-up process, or cause issues such as false positives.
    • Please read all instructions carefully, and complete them in the order listed.
      • Items that are especially important will be highlighted in bold or red.
    • If your computer seems to start working normally, please don't abandon the topic.
      • Even if your system is behaving normally, there may still be some malware remnants left over. Additionally, malware can re-infect the computer if some remnants are left. Therefore, please complete all requested steps to make sure any malware is successfully eradicated from your PC.
    • If you have pirated or illegal software on your computer, uninstall it now before proceeding.
      • Using pirated/cracked software is an easy way to infect your computer - almost as easy as intentionally downloading malware. Therefore, please remove any, if present, before we begin the clean-up.
    • If you have questions at any time during the cleanup, feel free to ask.
    ------------------------------------

    Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST)
    • Download FRST to your Desktop. (for 32 bit systems)
    • Download FRST64 to your Desktop. (for 64 bit systems)
    • Double click Frst.exe/Frst64.exe to launch it.
    • FRST will start to run.
      • When the tool opens click Yes to the 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.

    Hi,

    By 'Malware Premium', do you mean Malwarebytes Premium? Or another program?
