Post by mcovotery on 14th May 2009, 10:53 pm

Slowness doesn't always mean a virus, there are other things to consider.

Processor speed
RAM
Startup items

More than likely it's startup items that need to be turned off.

Don't download the Windows Genuine Advantage updates, they are a pain in the neck. LMBO or ROFL

As for AV, you have AVG, stick with that.

Did you uninstall AVG? Running two AV's isn't good. Having two soldiers might be a good thing, but these soldiers like to tear each other to pieces.

If you want Avast, uninstall AVG.
