Windows 7: Slowdown

I used the avg remover tool, it moved me to a site where it said "sad to see you go, avg toolbar removed" but I never had the avg toolbar and the AVG itself was still active so I tried to uninstall it using the control center but upon trying to remove it, I had an error message saying AVG is not installed on the computer.

I am not even going to start commenting about what is wrong because as far as I'm concerned everything is wrong.

And now AVG says that the anti-virus VDS check has failed and it cannot be fixed.

Is AVG gone in the Control Panel>Programs and Features? If not reinstall it for the purpose of correctly uninstalling it in Control Panel, followed then by the AVG Removal tool to see if anything remains.

Once you've worked through all of the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 if the problem remains then I would run a Repair Install.

Also look over the steps for a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to make sure the reinstall you did (even for retail) compares, or I would do it over - especially sticking with how drivers are handled in Windows 7, and the other tools and methods which work best.

That seems to indicate corruption but could also be just the crappy AVG bloatware.

What I would do is set a System Restore Point - Create, type regedit in Start Search box, on the Edit tab click Find and type AVG in the search box, delete all keys found which are clearly for AVG. If you have a question on one, use the Snipping tool to save and post back a screenshot before proceeding.

Then complete all of the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 especially SFC /SCANNOW Command, if it finds corruption consider a Repair Install if it cannot repair System Files in 3 attempts or using Manual replacement.

Make sure no AVG is still in msconfig>Startup or Services, or root it out at its file or registry location listed. Sometimes it must be turned off there before uninstalling fully.

Go ahead and catch up with the other steps not yet completed especially the hardware tests for RAM - Test with Memtest86+ for 5-6 passes, install CrystalDiskInfo - Software to check HD SMART status and test the HD with maker's HD Diagnostic CD long scan.

If this doesn't help then do the Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 sticking closely to the steps to do a diagnostic install, which means first doing all rounds of Updates then testing performance after each reboot before again Checking for Updates until they are all completed. Then test performance after each program install. This helps pinpoint what is causing the hang.

Go ahead and let it run overnight so it fully stresses the RAM.

Ram showed no error even after 7 passes, I am so proud.

Activated CrystalDiskInfo 5.6.2, C is good 100% health, 38 'c.

F is 43 'c, caution. What should I do?

Try this too, download this: CrystalDiskInfo - Software - Crystal Dew World and open the program and follow the steps in this snip.



This may give you a little bit of time, but the drive should be replaced soon.
