so im confused

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
a while ago i got some virtumonde.dll virus and it

.caused keystroke errors probly because of a keylogger

.slowed my comp down pretty much everywhere

.put a bunch of pop-ups when i used the interent

.put a desktop picture on that said my comp was infected and needed software

.shut off the firewall and erased all the restore points



ok so we had some guy from McAffee come onto our computer remotely and remove it manually after i tried using a bunch of scanning and removal programs to get rid of it. i got rid some other stuff but not virtumonde.dll because i guess it was able to replicate itself if there were any files remaining after a clean

well my computer is still running slower than usual like slower than before i got the virus.

i have:

.ran defrag a bunch of times, the disk looks like 1 solid blue bar, i green bar and 2 friggin white bars, very unfragmented.

.used CCleaner and cleaned all unused files and invalid registry entries

.virus scanned with multiple programs

MY COMPUTER IS STILL SLOWER THAN NORMAL. WHY??

i looked at doing PC restore but i guess my comp doesnt have a partition for doing that so that option is gone. and i dont have the money to get another windows CD.

does anyone have any idea what could be causing this drop in performance?

basically everything in general is just slower.

web browser takes way longer to load
document pages take longer to load
my online gaming has worse fps and glitches and locks up once in a while
installing looks more sluggish

its not a giant difference but it is noticable

the computer just seems to need to work harder to do stuff i hear the fan speed up more often i think

????
my internet download speed and all that is the same as it ever was

Look in your computers documentation for how to do a system restore (if you lost it, it should be available online).

Most of the time, computer manufacturers hide the restore partition to keep people from messing them up.

What anti virus are you using?

Do you have HiJack This? That should help alittle bit, it may have snuck some stuff in there (services, BO, website advertising, etc).

If you do, can you post the entire log in here please?
