Hi. First Download, update, & Run www.malwarebytes.org . Remove anything that may come up. After that it done, Download and run www.CCleaner.com this will clean out the all the junk that may have built up over time. Finally, Defrag your Hdd.

That having been said, you didn't give your computer specs and Operating System you are running which would be helpful. How much free space is left on your Hdd, as this could be a factor.

Hi :

Another possible Cause of your "slow" computer
may be you have unnecessary programs on your
computer !? To check this possibility, I
recommend you go to http://www.pcdecrapifier.com
and consider using the FREE program there .

And Norton had the worse Results in recent testing
in the "Retrospective/proactive" ( the degree of
effectiveness in keeping malware OFF a computer )
category done by the Independent Researchers at
www.av-comparatives.org .
For the very Best in Life :

It's a good thread to recommend software. LOL :lol:
You told me to go to hell and I did it. Now you ask me to come back...I'm sorry, I've just pissed off too far away to get back.
