Regarding the above-mentioned "services", "Windows Search" is a big one. It is constantly indexing the contents of your Hard Drive, eating up resources. By disabling that, searching for a file is slower, but speed of the computer during general operation should improve.

Also, when is the last time you ran Ccleaner?

And lastly, whatever browser you're using, remove all those useless toolbars like bing, ask, google, etc...they are un-needed and only slow your pc down.



Oh, almost forgot, for the OP....you should also make sure your vents and fans are clear of dust, even if it means removing the heatsink from CPU. If you do that you will need some new thermal paste to clean off the old dried cracked stuff first.

System restore might fix a virus temporarily, but it can come back unless you delete old system restore points manually.

If infected, do the following:

1: Back up important docs, pics, etc!
2: Boot into safe-mode w/ networking
3: D-load and run in the following order:

-"TFC" by OTL
-"rkill"
-combofix - run scan
-malwarebytes antimalware (decline free trial of paid version on install, run full scan)

4: Reboot
5: Delete all old system restore points!
6: Manually create a new system restore point

/fin

All the progs can be easily found on Google. Bleepingcomputer.com is a great website where you can download most of these tools.

Never.

I know I should run cleaning programs and stuff to help it run but I'm too lazy. I will. Thanks.

Thanks for the great information.

I should have just made a "HELP FATCOMPUTERNED" thread instead,

First time using ISH to solve a technical problem.

Thanks for everyone's input.

Iunno, if he doesn't have much important stuff it might just be easier/faster to do a complete reinstall.

I agree, using msconfig to stop random apps from opening in reboot is good. I always do it, and only start my most essential programs.

try to delete any programs that you don't use. make your computer as minimalistic and light weight as you can. run one of those system cleaners/checkups once in a while. they get rid of a lot of unneeded things in your computer. I personally use Advanced System care, works for me.

Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't.

Depends on how much needs backed up pre-reinstall, if he will still have office, how many programs to be re-installed, data re-imported, how many years worth of windows updates, etc...

Sometimes there's no choice BUT to wipe/reinstall but it's usually done as a last resort.

Unless you're smart and make a regular image/clone backup of your OS partition or disk...then it's fast and easy to just re-image.

Advanced System Care is an OK program, but it's running all the time, using resources, and doing things that aren't needed.

A decent antivirus (MSE, Avast, Avira), occasional scan with Malwarebytes, and Ccleaner should be all one needs, along with a firewall of course.
