    Windows 10

    Computer slow and potentially has viruses.


    So this computer is very slow and It probably has viruses. Windows starts up and cmd.exe starts up. This computer should be running faster than it is right now. I have a 32bit computer windows 7 and it runs faster than this. Someone help.

    I would Check out ADWCleaner and an online virus scanner like ESET or Trend Micro. It's possible that whatever has infected your computer is proxying your traffic back to their servers preventing you from downloading legitimate software like what I've linked above, if this is the case Download and install chrome or IE and follow these links there. Let me know how this works for you and I'd be happy to discuss next steps with you

    I've used ADWCleaner before on my other computer and its fine. However, here it gets stuck on the web browsers, I can switch the tabs but its slow and the bar wont move for around 10-30 mins.

    Running Malwarebytes and CCleaner. See if it helps or finds anything... Malwarebytes been up for 30 mins and its found 24 detected threats so far.

    64 were deleted and on CCleaner 3 GB's of data removed.
