Hey guys,

First off, my girlfriend was looking for movies online and she managed to click on websites which obviously had viruses on, because I found a trojan a day later on my computer via AVG. I removed it, but my computer seems to have slowed down considerably even after this.

I could play League of Legends at ultra, max fps (60) no problem with no drop. Now it rarely plays that, sometimes even going as low as 15fps.

Is there any reason for this? Could I have another virus? I would really love some guidance.

Thankyou very much, and I will add more if needed.

UPDATE: Nothing has worked yet. I've tried the Malware and deleted 6 threats it found, but not much has changed. I've scanned many times. I think a window reinstall may be in order:/

Kinda sucks!

Based on what you have said - it looks like you are in a fine position to leverage additional favors from your girlfriend. Lucky guy.

I would guess there is some other bit infecting and affecting your machine.

Try booting in safe Mode - and running AVG.

Hi Rookiv
You have a good antivirus there in avg
i would also try a malware scan using malwarebytes
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
i find sometimes this picks up a lot that avg does not

Some viruses/malware/etc, manage to corrupt system files that make the system slower. Depending on how much of a bother it is for you, I'd recommend a clean reinstall of the OS after you run enough scans.

You could deep scan your device to be sure on what virus is it and what is affected on your computer. You could use vpn to be safe next time your girlfriend clicks anything on the web.
