I have recently bought a zoo storm PC it took a while to setup and adapt xp games to the new vista OS but recently it's became extremely slow and unresponsive also it kept closing games while i was playing them for no reason. Also when i go on the Internet somethings i go on require activex these things worked before 15/2/09. But, it says in the programs list for my PC that adobe activex 10 was installed on 15/2/09. But,nobody was on my PC that day and it wasn't switched on due to it was the day before my dad's funeral. Please help me here this is a new PC gone mad.
I would try a few other malware programs other than just the one you mentioned, one single program can miss something. I would download Superantispyware click here and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware click here and run them from safe mode.
oldbeefer2 means to do a system restore, it restores system files to an earlier date, it's not a full format and reinstall. Read here for more information on restore click here. I would only recommend this as a last resort though.
I would also try CCleaner click here to clean up temp files as they could be slowing your system down, you semm to have a lot of games installed and may have a lot of crap to get rid of.
Glad to see you got the problem sorted. The link I supplied is the correct one. Google lists Malware Anti-Malware Free which is a link to a bad site malwaree.org, the real link is Malwarebytes.org. If you have Web of Trust or similar installed and search google for Malwarebytes you'll see the bad site right at the top flagged in red.
