Very Sluggish Computer[RESOLVED]

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a computer that has become very slow. In task manager there seems to be a lot of processes running.

I turned off most everything in msconfig. It's better but it still seems to take forever to boot up and even after it starts up it seems to hesitate when you click on the internet or some programs.

Thanks in advance for any help

Here is my HJT log:

jplink,

Hi, and welcome to Besttechie. I need you to re-enable everything in msconfig and post a new hijackthis log. If you have malware, you may be hiding it, and I need to see everything that normally starts up.

Thanks,

sari

Thanks for the help sari,

I found out the problem. McAfee

A few people said they all had the same problem with their computer when Comcast installed McAfee Suite, so I uninstalled McAfee and sure enough now it's just like new. It boots up quickly and runs great.
