    Hello. I have been having trouble with my computer seeming to gradually get slower for some time. However, this weekend it became VERY slow to the point where videos became practically unwatchable due to slow buffering and the browser struggled opening pages that have no videos or pictures, taking over 5 minutes to do so. After clearing the cache and temp files, running an MBAM scan and de-fragging, some of the slowness was alleviated, but it is still much worse than it was a few days ago.

    Also, this computer seems to have trouble installing the Microsoft Updates, as every time I shut down I tell it to install the updates but it seemingly never actually updates as each time i log on it says the same updates are ready to install. I have been having this problem for some months now.

    Down to business:

    I suggest you get rid of that system-hungry and problematic CA Internet Security Suite and then replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials 2.1.1116.0 - which is much lighter on system resources and does a very good job and is very user-friendly and is well recommended in these forums.

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

    I also suggest that you uncheck Windows Defender in the startup list and then disable it in the services list.

    It does a crappy job and isn't needed and consumes system resources.

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

    Most of the startup entries in Start - Run - MSCONFIG - OK - "Startup" tab can be unchecked.

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

    It appears that you had Norton installed at one time.

    If you did, you need to download and run the Norton Removal Tool so it can get rid of its leftover file and registry debris.

    Thank you for the prompt response, Flavallee.

    I did everything you told me to, but I'm still having much the same problems.

    I stopped Windows Defender service and unchecked the startup box then uninstalled CA Internet Security Suite and then restarted the computer.

    I then installed Microsoft Security Essentials and ran the Norton Removal Tool and rebooted again. This time Windows installed updates upon shutdown, and it actually seemed to work for once. MBAM was also able to update its definitions, which it was always unable to do before.

    Unfortunately, this success in updating did not occur with Microsoft Security Essentials, which repeatedly gets to 25-40% when I try to update before informing me that it can not update because it can't detect an internet connection. [EDIT: I just tried to update it again and for some reason it was successful this time. I;m not sure why it worked this time around, as I did nothing different from before.] I have a similar problem with Windows Update, for every time I check for updates, it checks for several minutes, then tells me that "An error occurred while checking for new updates for your computer" and in addition gives me the error "Code 80072EFD Windows Update encountered an unknown error." [EDIT: Windows Update is still having the same problem. That hasn't changed. I'm going to try it one more time.] [EDIT2: Encountered the same problem again.]

    In addition to all of this, my internet is still fairly slow, though loading speed is much faster for everything but videos. Those still buffer painfully slow.

    I appreciate your help thus far and hope that you are able to further assist me with this problem. :)

    I'll help you as much as I can.

    Do the following in the order listed.

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

    Click Start - Run, then type in

    %temp%

    then click OK.

    Click Start - Run, then type in

    c:\windows\temp

    then click OK.

    Once those 2 temp folders appear and you can view their contents, select and delete EVERYTHING that's inside them.

    If a few files resist being deleted, that's normal behavior. Leave them alone and delete EVERYTHING else.

    After you're done, restart the computer.

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

    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 on 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.

    It'll take me several minutes to review your list and reply back to you.

    Did you have any trouble with deleting the contents of those 2 temp folders?

    Was there a large buildup of files inside either of them?

    Go to Control Panel - Add Or Remove programs.
    Make sure that "Show Updates" is NOT checked.
    Make sure that "Sort By - Name" is selected.

    Adobe AIR isn't needed and can be uninstalled.

    Adobe Flash Player 10 ActiveX needs to be updated to version 11.0.1.152

    Adobe Flash Player 10 Plugin needs to be updated to version 11.0.1.152

    Adobe Reader 9.4.6 needs to be updated to version 10.1.1

    Adobe Shockwave Player 11.5 needs to be updated to version 11.6.1.629

    HiJackThis 2.0.2 needs to be updated to version 2.0.4

    Java(TM) 6 Update 26 needs to be updated to version 1.6.0.27

    Note: Click the green icon with the white arrow at each site to download them.

    SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition 5.0.0.1128 should be downloaded and installed so it can work with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.51.2.1300(which you already have installed) in combating "nasties" in your computer.

    Note: All the Adobe-related ones and Java will overwrite and replace the old version, so there's NO need to uninstall them first.
    You will need to uninstall the old version of HiJackThis because the new version won't overwrite it.

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

    After the above is done and the computer restarted, start HiJackThis and click "Do a system scan and save a log file".
    Save the new log that appears, then submit it here.

    Wow, that updating helped a LOT. The computer has sped up a lot and I can actually watch videos now. :) Windows Update was finally able to check for updates and it found 22 important updates, which should hopefully help. I always suspected that it was the CA Internet Security Suite blocking programs from updating correctly, and so I thank you for advising me to remove it. (y)

    On that note, CA Personal Firewall still appears on my program list, but when I try to uninstall it I get a pop-up saying "The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the 'CA Personal Firewall' disk and click OK.'" However, I did not install CA from a disk, my ISP provided it for free with internet service and I downloaded it from them. Anyway that you know of that I might be able to remove it anyway?

    After all the uninstalling and updating and restarting that you've done, the temp folders probably need to have their contents deleted again, so do it - per post #4.

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

    Go into the C:\Program Files folder.

    If the CA folder is still present, delete it.

    Hopefully, it won't resist being deleted.

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

    Go to Start - Run - MSCONFIG - OK - "Startup" tab.

    Uncheck these startup entries:

    RtHDVCpl

    GrooveMonitor

    ArcSoft Connection Service - or - ACDaemon

    SunJavaUpdateSched - or - jusched - or - Java(TM) - -

    Adobe ARM

    WMPNSCFG

    SUPERAntiSpyware

    After you're done, click Apply - OK/Close - Exit Without Restart.

    Go to Start - Run - SERVICES.MSC - OK.

    Double-click these service entries, one at a time, to open their properties window:

    ArcSoft Connect Daemon

    Adobe Acrobat Update Service

    Agere Modem Call Progress Audio

    GameConsoleService

    getPlus Helper

    NVIDIA Driver Helper Service


    Change the "startup type" to Manual(if its set on Automatic), then click Apply - OK.

    After you're done, close the window and then restart the computer.

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

    Start HiJackThis, then click "Do a system scan and save a log file".

    Save the new log that appears, then submit it here.

    Let's put Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware to work next.

    Don't use your computer while the scans are in progress.

    Make sure to select the "quick" scan and not the "full/complete" scan because it'll take much longer and isn't needed in most cases.

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

    Start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

    Click "Updates(tab) - Check for Updates".

    When the definition files have updated, click "OK".

    Click "Scanner(tab) - Perform quick scan - Scan".

    If infections or problems are found during the scan, the number of them will be highlighted in red.

    When the scan is finished, click "Show Results".

    Make sure that EVERYTHING is selected, then click "Remove Selected".

    If you're prompted to restart to finish the removal process, click "Yes".

    Start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware again.

    Click "Logs"(tab).

    Highlight the scan log entry, then click "Open".

    When the scan log appears in Notepad, copy-and-paste it here.

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

    Start SUPERAntiSpyware.

    Click "Check for Updates".

    When the definition files have updated, click "Close".

    Select the "Quick Scan" option, then click "Scan your Computer".

    If infections or problems are found during the scan, a list will appear and the number of them will be highlighted in red.

    When the scan is finished and the scan summary window appears, click "Continue".

    Make sure that EVERYTHING in the list is selected, then click "Remove Threats".

    Click "OK - Finish".

    If you're prompted to restart to finish the removal process, do so.

    Start SUPERAntiSpyware again.

    Click "View Scan Logs".

    Highlight the scan log entry, then click "View Selected Log".

    When the scan log appears in Notepad, copy-and-paste it here.

    The MBAM scan came up clean and the SAS scan found only adware tracking cookies, so that's good. (y) Did you select and remove them all?

    It looks like there's at least 4 users for that computer. If that's the case, running a quick scan weekly might be a good idea. Just don't forget to update the definition files before running a scan.

    Unless you have anything that you'd like to address about that computer, I think we're done.

    Yes, I removed them all. I will stay on top of those scans and try to keep this machine in the great shape you've got it to. I can't believe how much better it's running, it hasn't ran this fast and smooth since the first few months after we got it. Thank you very much for all of your help. I really can't believe that I was able to get such great service completely free. Again, thank you and have a great life, Flavallee. :D
