System freeze when drag and drop

Post by Voods on 15th April 2010, 3:38 pm

Hi..

I have been advised to post my problem here after assistance in the Malware/Virus section

I am still having problems with my system freezing when trying to drag and drop files on the desktop/in windows explorer.
Also when, I try to delete a file this sometimes happens.

I can rescue the system my terminating explorer, and re-loading it through the task manager, but not everything re-loads including some shell items.

My system has seemed to be degrading in performance over the last week, so something is wrong I feel.

Any assistance would be appreciated

Regards

Well sounds like you have a infection of some sort or your hard drive is going bad , do you have any blue screens of death or computer freezing then shutting down?

Hi...Thanks for the reply.

I dont' appear t have any infections.

I have run MBAM, and Super anti spyware...and trojan hunter daily...
I also have Eset running, and do a scan every few days...

I don't think anything was picked up in the Malware section of the forum, but it be great if somebody could check again with a hijack this log.

I haven't had any blue screens either, or shutting down, but it has frozen now and again, or not booted down, but not that many times.

Regards

Usually when hard drive freezes or drags realllly slow then it means two things:

1. Hard Drive is going bad
2. Infection of Spyware or virus
