IE is a little delayed but seems normal for the spedd processor in it.
I appreciate the help. THis laptop is for an underprivilidged high school student. Im doing all the work for free. Wanted to make sure its as tight as I can get it. (to minimize my re-involvement! If possible.)

If you're happy with the logs then I surely am!

Yes the logs look good. With no malware related symptoms, and neither MSE or MBAM detecting anything I don't see any reason to do any further scans if you're happy.

I would consider using an alternative browser to IE8.

OTL by OldTimer


  • Double-click OTL.exe
  • Click the CleanUp! button
  • Select Yes when the Begin cleanup Process? Prompt appears
  • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes
  • The tool will delete itself once it finishes, if not delete it by yourself

We uninstalled Mozilla, I suspect because it was outdated. What browser do you recommend?
Yea its running pretty smooth now.

Yes, exactly that reason. There's no reason not to continue with Firefox, but it does need to be kept updated.

Anything further before i close this? Smiley
