Computer becomes slow

If your computer has become very slow, it may be that you have a PUA running on and monitoring your computer. If you have on-access scanning enabled, you may also see many desktop alerts warning about a PUA. To solve the problem, do the following.

  1. Run the Scan my computer scan to detect all components of the PUA. For information, see Run a full computer scan.
    Note If after the scan the PUA is partially detected, refer to Threat partially detected, step 2.
  2. Clean the adware or PUA from your computer. To find out how to do this, refer to Deal with adware and PUAs in quarantine.
