    I really dont know where to start. Noticed when I would click on chrome it would take awhile before hourglass came up and then another min or so before it would actually come up and desktop screen would jump just beforehand..i checked add/remove and decided to delete avast and re download it as i was always getting errors when issues were found and it wouldn't solve them. After that i thought maybe it was a google chrome issue so I deleted that thinking it would be no big deal..tried to reinstall but couldn't do so the regular way, had to install a chrome standalone which i dont like because it looks somewhat different and alll my bookmarks that i desperately need have disappeared, i got rid of leapfrog in add/remove cause it apparently was corrupted, same with google earth..when i ran avast it said it needed to do a boot scan (i think thats what its cld) upon computer restart..that took forever..gave options to fix, fix all, ignore, delete and repair..tried fix all but said it couldn't ..meant to click on repair all and accidentally hit delete..I really need some help here please

    Hi

    I really tried to follow your first instruction on how to locate avast log but cant find it. I did print screen but upload failed. I'm at a loss on how to find exactly what you need.

    Run an online virus scan with ESET - use IE [Internet Explorer] to download ESET.
    http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/
    Click on Run ESET Online Scanner

    Disable your existing Anti Virus following these instructions.
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/for...nti-virus-firewall-and-anti-malware-programs/
    Do not forget to enable your anti-virus program after you have run the ESET scan.

    Do not let ESET remove what it finds.
    Untick the box next to Remove found threats

    Post the log files - they can be found here.
    C:\Program Files\ESET\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt

    Depending on what it finds - we may need to ask one of our Malware experts for help

    Ok - post the log file when all is done.
    We may then need to have your post moved to the Virus and Other Malware Forum for their expert help
