I’m working a Win7 64 bit Ultimate Pc that I suspect has been hit with some type of spyware or virus. There are no popups or browser hijacks that appear, but the system is unbelievably slow.
Below is a detailed description of the system and what I've done to clean it up.
8 Gigs ram
C drive – 720 GB, 340 Gb free
E-drive - 1 .1 Tb, 540 Gb free
Processor AMD Athlon II 64 bit x 4 620 Ghz
It’s a standalone in its own workgroup. I ran the following utilities which helped:
The report is attached but I don’t have the background to evaluate what should be deleted.
Rogue Kill – Found some registry entries that I had it remove.
- I allowed it to remove the auto update tasks for Google and Adobe to lighten up the system overhead.
SuperAntiSpyware – found a few minor items and now it runs clean
Malwarebytes - – found a few minor items and now it runs clean
TDsKiller – found a few items with the following options selected
- Verify the file digital signatures
- Detect TDLFS file system
Attached are three reports
Conflicker Checker from Symantec – found nothing
Symantec Endpoint protection 12.15.xx – Just found cookies which it deleted
Symantec Endpoint Protection displays a message at boot up saying it’s found a process and want to know if I should block it… I respond yes. I don’t know how to identify that process.
The system boots faster now but is still slower than normal.
