ok so i ran the scan and no malware came up. so i started the clean boot procedure. when i first did it (the first step) everything was running fine i was relieved, so i started to use it for a while thinking ill play around a little before finishing the final steps. at this point i plugged back in my wireless router(linksys) thinking that the problem was my computer not the router. as soon as i did that my cpu started to bog down and it went straight back to how it was before. i was pissed. so i took out the router and hoped it would go back to how it was when i first did the clean boot. no luck there, so i tried the clean boot again. it wasn't working at all. i dont know if its because of the router(most likely, but what could be the problem?) or when i clean boot one program never closes down.
the program is the mcafee validation trust protection. i located the mcafee folder and tried to delete it but it said the program was in use. i cant find what is using it or where it is. any help in deleting this so i can try to find out if thats the problem?
also i booted up safe mode so i could post about the problem but even safe mode couldnt stop my pc from acting up( mostly the internet part when i try to connect online.) i know that it isnt my isp though because like i said i did the clean boot and it was working fine.
also no i dont have another pc i dont know whether my friend has vista or window 7. so ill check.
