What have you tried so far and how?

i have tried running full scans on my norton internet security a number of times and on malwarebytes. on both they have said they have found and deleted the infections, but the pc is still running bad. i have tried disk cleaner, and defragment, but they dont seem to have improved the pcs performance.

Have you tried running Superantispyware?The free version is good.

May be worth running it and malawarebytes in safe mode.

ok ill try this. sorry im not very good with pcs, how do you run safemode?

Computer shops are very hit and miss most experts will get rid of Spyware /malware with the following

Run a Hijack this scan and check the logs for any suspicious activity


Run a app called Rkill which kills all spyware processes and services

And then run a full scan with Malwarebytes / Superantispyware

Run a full Av scan with updated defs

To run in safe mode, turn off PC then as you switch on keep tapping F8 key and select option to start in safe mode. Then run the programmes. Then restart - the PC should restart by default in normal mode.

Open device manager, expand mouse entry. Is there a yellow triangle?
