Specs: Windows XP Home Edition SP 3
A few weeks ago, I opened (I was not even watching a video yet) and was presented with an unofficial-looking pop-up telling me that something was wrong with my computer and that I needed to download a specific anti-virus software. I closed my browser and all windows immediately and my computer seemed to run fine. That night I updated my MBAM and ran the full scan, which found nothing (I had run it a week or so earlier and deleted two Trojans). I also redownloaded the McAfee VirusScan software I get for free through the university I attend. This software found three infected files, which I deleted. That night my computer was running fine. However, the next time I tried to boot up my computer took FOREVER. And every time since then, it is the same thing. After an hour of use, my computer seems to normal out and work at its regular speed, but for an hour after boot-up it's like a snail. I also frequently get an official-looking pop-up (at the bottom of the screen where it tells me I have updates, etc.) that says my virtual memory is low and that windows is increasing my virtual memory paging file, and that some requests may be denied because of this. I have received this message before, but more frequently now. If anyone knows what this could be, I would really appreciate some help. Thank you :)
