Hello, just the other day i was fiddling with some malware removal tools to get rid of that google redirect virus. Shortly after, once i got rid of the virus, my computer wouldnt start. It was just a black screen. i restarted it and finally it worked but now, my computer is THE slowest thing i have every seen, it takes about 10 seconds to highlight something and the mouse is sticking. At first i was completely stunned because my computer just broke down on me, but a quick go into safe mode and turning off of the video adapter, and it was back to normal.
Although this happened at a time when i deleted some suspicious software, i dont believe it has anything to do with my problem because i have heard that this particular card has bad overheating issues.
The computer is going mega slow and sometimes it goes black then a window appears with that message 'display driver stopped responding'. Everything about the computer was working fine(from what i know) just up until a few days ago when this happened. Is this my gpu finally dead? Please help me. Im not too pc knowledgable either but will be happy to give any needed info.
Oh, this also happened around the time i installed windows 7 service pack 1.
