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

It says to zip them and attach them, but I'm not sure how to do that. They are small files anyway, have attached them. I can post the content in the post if you like but it says not to. Anyway, I'm not sure if I have script blocking protection on or not but I ran it and here is the result as requested.

I also backed up a load of files, deleted a load of stuff and ran a boot time defrag with puran last night when I went out, and it seems to be running better so far but will obviously keep an eyes on it.

OK I ran the program as administrator, but no prompt to click continue or allow, it's just opened. Ran it exactly like you said (with Chrome still running not sure if am better to run it without) and this is what it produced, quite a lot of errors and warnings in here, hopefully it will shed light on the problem...

Also, there was too much text so I have uploaded it as a txt file.

Save as flush.bat to your desktop. Right click on the flush.bat file and choose to run as Administrator. Your computer will reboot itself.

OK I did that, it rebooted and I ran CCleanr again before doing anything. Like I say it has been running a bit better, although it did lock up a few times when I was putting together some HDR panoramic photography in photoshop.

I'll let you know how it goes, probably run another defrag and keep my eye on any more spam filling up temporary folders.

Does it sound like I might have/have had some malware/spyware or something? I'm going to change all my passwords soon.

Is it normal to have files turning up in internet explorer if you never use it? Still running fine, but maybe the root of the problem if still waiting to rear it's ugly spammy head again.

It's still running better, had some warning on 4od plugin about drm or something, I followed the instructions and it fixed itself. Still 0>kb in temp folders of progs I never use though so will keep an eye on that and get back.
