However, if you can't determine the source of the threats you may continue to see issues. For example last week I encountered a torrent user that could not quit. They didn't understand why Norton won't protect them.
Win 7 laptop.
My programs won't open quickly or at all. So I finally opened in safe mode & used Super Anti-Spyware & found 287 threats. Got rid of them. Still lagging. Currently running CCleaner, but am not optimistic.
Any other options would be great. Thanks.
& report back later. Thank you!
As of last night, here's what I did:
Did a *complete* scan w. Super Antispyware & found 50+ more threats.
Then after that, I did full Malwarebytes scan & got nothing.
Then, I tried ADWCleaner, & *that* got rid of that 'Conduit' thing....But it was *still* lagging.
Then I tried opening CCleaner & it wouldn't open. "Not responding".
Could this be a graphics card issue?
There are some damage that can't be undone. That is, the scanners only toss out the bad things but if some setting was changed or the OS took a deep enough hit, then it is usually beyond any forum to repair the OS to its former speed.
But CONDUIT was a nasty thing. Keep scanning until it's clean.
And time to remove/uninstall CCLEANER till after the scans come clean.
