  1. super slow and had 4 virus-malware in hundreds


    its asus note book pc Q504U stock with 1tb drive
    boot time maybe 10 minutes.
    ran sfc scannow and it passed ok.
    ran dism restore health, recheck sfc scan now and it passed.
    upgraded to win 10 1803 to 1809 which took 6 hours and it succeeded, win 10 defender said no malware.
    Ran malware bytes and found 208 removed ok.
    Ran Hitman Pro and it found 4 virus and loads of pup, quarantined all.

    so far not much has helped with performance, but getting rid of the malware sped it up a little, now 10 mins to boot to working desktop. Loading Chrome takes 4 minutes, then a minute to load a web page. Clicking windows menu at first load takes several minutes to see anything. it was never this slow except for last 6 months. this has basically become almost unusable. So what can we do?

    :)

    super slow and had 4 virus-malware in hundreds

    Is it a Virus or a Malware or something else?

    Hello Joes,

    There's a possibility that your device is infected with a malware causing why you're unable to delete the game on your laptop. In order for us to assist you better, we'd like to ask the following:

    • Aside from formatting the hard drive, what other troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?
    • Have you asked your friend where did he download the games?

    To identify if your computer is infected with a virus or malware, we recommend downloading and running
    Microsoft Safety Scanner. The scanner can easily detect if there's any virus found on your device. To do so, follow the steps on this
    link.

    We are looking forward to your reply.
