Windows 7: I think I have a New Virus but Cannot Detect it at all. Help?

Windows 7
I think I have a New Virus but Cannot Detect it at all. Help?

Yes it is me again, this just started happening about a week ago.

Everything gets slow all at once. No CPU over use, no over heating. Just slow everything. Video playback simply does not work and is like satelite tv when the signal is lost, my MALWARE Antimalware bits after a full scan found nothing. My MS virus detector found nothing, All of a sudden, after I reset my computer and use it for a bit it goes slow. After I shut it down and start it back up it is VERY fast, but then it slows down again all of a sudden for no reason. I am certain I have some sort of a virus but I cannot even detect it.


Yes I know I am having the same issues over and over again but I am not sure how to correct it this time. Even typing in this box has slow down, my CPU usage while this slowdown is 3%!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gateway NV52
  1. AMD Athlon 64 X2 QL-64
  2. 15.6" 16:9 HD LED LCD
  3. 320 GB HDD
  4. 4 GB Memory (NOT UPGRADABLE!!!!!)
  7. MULTI-in-1 card reader
Those are my specs, Win 7 clean install.

Boot with Microsoft's System Sweeper either 32bit or 64bit depending on your OS.

Seems odd that it cannot be detected, personally I would suspect hardware, rather than malware that can't be seen.
have a try with malwarebytes just to be certain.

How do I test my HDD? I closed every window and tried to play music and it skips. Maybe harware?

Your hard drive manufacturer will have a testing application on their website. You could also try memtest to check out the system memory.

I see Firefox and IE both running in your first post. Which one is your default browser?
