Hey Guys,
Win 7 Home Premium on an HP P6803 64 bit, C- drive is still like 65% empty. I don't game on it or use high end video editing software, I mainly use my desktop to surf the net, watch AVI files and store family photos. I have a 1 TB that stores most of my pics.
So, it's behaving like a virus, my HDD sounds like a 747 taking off (intermittently), internet freezes often. I cleaned out some stuff with Superantispyware, my Microsoft Security Essentials AV never finds so much as a tracking cookie (useless). I have a large selection of AV, Spyware and Malware proggies to choose from, does anyone know a certain order to run these or which ones I should even use? I have Superanti, MBam, CCleaner, Rkill, Hitman, Emsisoft, Ad aware, TDSS killer. I'd appreciate any feedback.

Whenever I have weird issue I head over to the Avast Virus and Worms section and post my issues. They are fairly quick to help. Make sure to follow the thread titled, "Logs to assist in cleaning malware" and ;post your logs. Hopefully someone will answer right away. I'm usually running back to normal within 24hours.

Here's a link if allowed.

I haven't but this is highly unlikely, PC is like 3 yrs old, well maintained and the type of work I throw at it is not labor-intensive...I'm not a gamer, no graphics, just a place I DL my family pics and surf the web.
