Windows 7: Computer Slow/Locking up - spam found in temporary folder !!

I waited a few days before running adwcleaner and performing a clean and it seem temporary folders in IE are still filling up with this spam, also CCleaner found about 700MB of crap in chrome's temporary folders even though I apparently cleaned it out only the other day. Will see if any more turn up. I might have to do a full restore at this point.

Please download TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forum and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.

I will do that, soon.

Something I have neglected to mention so far is that I've begun to notice that there is always a program running when I shut down and it always prompts me, then usually it either shut it down or I click force shut down. It never tells me what it is though.

Looks like I have been infected with something for a few months at least now, so need to get onto it and find out what it is and if I can't get to the bottom I guess it'll have to be restore disks time. All my data is thoroughly backed up or at least 99% of what matters.

Thanks for the help.

Everything seems to work really fast as soon as it finished running and so then I restarted even though it didn't ask me to. When it restarted things seemed slower again so I ran it again and it removed another 11MB and produced this. Now running faster again.

Going a bit faster, but locking up still sometimes. I ran CCleaner again and only 1kb in IE temp folder, but >100MB in chrome again??? That can't be right, and there shouldn't be anything in IE folders not even 1kb! Really considering doing a full restore right now. It's what it's there for...

I'm becoming strongly in favour of a full system restore here. It's not so bad but some things go really slow and the fan makes a lot of noise when streaming videos, maybe it just needs cleaned or maybe NVidia's new update is bloatware. It's all a conspiracy to get me to buy the latest model.

I've run every cleaner there is, even updated CCleaner which I should have done months ago and still there is spam filling up my temp folders in IE, even though I uninstalled the latest version. can't see where to uninstall it completely..

So I guess the only thing I can do at this point now is restore?

Things in general seem to be running a bit less laggy, clickety click and there it is, not wait while my supposedly fast as fast 7th gen 8 core chip churns 25MB of data. I am not tolerating this anymore. Still considering a complete restartfrom the begin.

It's running slick now like before, like it should. none of this click on something and it takes 5 seconds, 10 seconds, to respond. Am I better going with this or doing a full restore and reinstalling everything?
