My suggestions:

For troubleshooting, Open Control Panel > Troubleshooting
System Maintenance Troubleshooter - Turn On or Off
Run the troubleshooters as needed.

For Speed-up / Optimize see this tutorial:
Optimize Windows 7

If I had a suspected malware problem i would create a new thread in the System Security forum.
There are trained Security Experts there that can help.

Fill in your System Specs so others know what hardware / software you have:
System Info - See Your System Specs

I keep my systems up to date, especially security patches for Windows and all programs i use.
I run CCleaner file cleaner a couple of times per month, to clean up temp files not needed.

I create periodic System Backup Images, so i can easily restore if anything goes wrong.

I wouldn't use/trust any "Fix-it-all" software that i know of ...

When i have a problem i can't fix myself, i create a SF thread for that specific problem.
There are many experts in SF willing to help solve problems.
