Did you clean them out at the end of the scan?

MBAM wouldnt load for me so i shut down my computer and tried relaunching it and going into safe mode with networking and now it says "failure configuring windows updates reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer". Is this a major issue? Keep in mind this is while trying to launch the computer into safe mode with networking. I havnt tried booting it up normally, im going to wait on a reply from someone on here first.

Try starting normally.

Check for Updates to install all Important and Optional.

Alright, I'll do that. Additionally, I just booted my computer up normally- my computer is still slow. It is not AS SLOW as before I did the scans however, pages take 20-30 seconds to load. speedtest took about a minute or two to load- surprisingly, both my download and upload are better than they were in previous tests (20/5). I still feel like something is wrong though, as I said, my computer is still running slowly. Also of note, it was SUPER slow after first being booted up. I have skype set up to load as soon as I log on but I dont think that would also be contributing to the issue because I've had that set even before my computer started being slow. Any additional comments are appreciated as are the previous ones. I'm gonna go check for updates now.

If you`re using a hard drive, defragment it 4 to 5 times.

Run disk cleanup 3 to 4 times.

Click the start orb, then All Programs, then Accessories, then System Tools.

laptop slow
My daughter has an acer laptop with windows 7 home premium. It is really slow. She does not appear to have any malware(malwarebytes antiwalware). She uses AVG free and it shows nothing. Her hard drive has more free space than used. What else can I check to help her out? Thanks, Debbie
