I had problems with virus/spyware that I got help with few weeks back, but since then my computer
isnt working the same.

For instance when I go to a website that previously, when waiting for several Pictures to load on the page
it was quick and everything loaded up almost immediately.
(Not sure if Im describing this correctly)

But now, it doesnt even finish loading up everything thats on the page.

So, I'm wondering whats causing this problem

Also, the computer is still slow when right clicking to bring up menu to delete or rename
an item for example.
thanks

I followed the link to read info on other page
and did what was written there.

Ok, I did the online Trendmicro scan
Downloaded Lavasoft, did scan
Downloaded Spybot, did scan
Downloaded Trojan hunter and did scan

But arent the Anti-virus and spyware scanners competing?
I had read not to use more than one.

Your log is clean.

But arent the Anti-virus and spyware scanners competing?
I had read not to use more than one.

It's ok to do online scans but you cannot have two virus protections software running all the time.
Your AVG is managing the virus situation if you have an other virus programs on top of it this later one would check everything being checked by AVG.


Take a look at this page created by miekiemoes, one of the Global Moderators here, on slow systems, and some things you can try to do to try to improve it:

Let me know what problem remains.

Still have a problem with this, I think its spyware/virus.

In pop-up box says:

avgabout.dll
The specified module could not be found
then it says- - OK
--
The past 2 days I scanned with Spybot, Adaware and Trojan hunter.
There were some things removed, but this popup remains.

avgabout.dll is a module belonging to the AVG About Box which is part of the AVG Anti-Virus system by GRISOFT.

You may be able to download a copy from this site.
http://www.nodevice....l/item2183.html

If that fails, I would remove AVG and Reinstall the program.
