How do i speed up my laptop and get rid off all the pointless programes that sony install in it????
Control Panel - Add/Remove Program
Or go into the programs options/preferences and turn it off so that it doesn't auto start when Windows run. Alternatively, run msconfig in Start-Run and uncheck all programs that you want to stop running on next boot.

Best bet is check for nasties first then post a log so we can see whats running ~

Download MALWAREBYTES (Make sure you click 'DOWNLOAD LATEST VERSION')
Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.44 - FileHippo.com
Open malwarebytes and goto UPDATE and click 'check for updates'. After its updated goto SCANNER and click PERFORM FULL SCAN then click SCAN
Post the COMPLETE log here AFTER youve deleted everything it finds


reboot

Download HIJACK THIS (Make sure you click 'DOWNLOAD LATEST VERSION')
Download HijackThis 2.0.3 Beta - FileHippo.com
Click MAIN MENU then DO A SYSTEM SCAN AND SAVE A LOGFILE(Takes seconds) then post the log so we can see whats running
(do NOT do anything else with Hijack but scan and post the FULL log)

I notice you use the AVG security suite. Thats really bad in that its firewall is very unsafe. Id recommend shutting it down (If you can) and use windows inbuilt firewall. Its all pretty slow (Which is clearly what you dont want)
When it comes to renewal, remove it and pay for something decent like Kaspersky (Via amazon or wherever)
