    Hi. Last week my pc (Windows 10) was hit with malware. Removed the viruses with several different scanners. Scans are now clear. My pc is noticeably running slower now. Any ideas to help put some giddy up back in it? Thanks. D

    CCleaner + Wise Disk Cleaner (you might run included defrag as well after cleaning). A few commands, run CMD as admin and copy/paste:

    Code:
    fsutil usn deletejournal /d /n c:
    chkdsk /scan
    winmgmt /salvagerepository
    del "%temp%\*" /s /f /q
    del "%systemroot%\temp\*" /s /f /q
    vssadmin delete shadows /for=c: /all /quiet
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase
    cleanmgr /sageset:65535 & cleanmgr /sagerun:65535

    your system is no longer safe. it is a waste of time to clean up such systems. why? you can not be sure if all has been removed - and if so, the system is highly damaged - and last - the vulnerability ist still present, it can hit you anytime again.

    use a proper image/backup or start from scratch after backing up all important data.

    and think about admins first three rules:
    1. backup
    2. backup
    3. backup

    100% agreed. There is no substitute for restoring a damaged system than by restoring a known, clean image. If you don't have a backup image to restore, then you should probably wipe and re-install, then find yourself a backup program and use it as part of routine maintenance.
