my computer is very slow and there is virus what l have to do?


Go to this site

http://housecall65.trendmicro.com/

and run a full scan - this will remove most of the viruses on your computer. Should help speed it up as well.

Once thats done, install AVG Free and run a full scan

Install for AVG ->http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html

Once AVG is done scanning, i'd also install and run SpyBot S&D to remove any other infections that AVG/HouseCall may have missed.

Install for SpyBot S&D -> http://download.cnet.com/Spybot-Search-amp-Destroy/3000-8022_4-10122137.html

After HouseCall, AVG and SpyBot have ran, you should be all set! If you can't get to any IE pages, and are posting this from a different computer, see below on how to restore your IE settings...

Being that you were able to get to this site to post, i can assumeIf you can't seem to get to the site, which happens w/ some viruses, try restoring your internet back to its original state. There's steps on how to do that below as well.

  1. 1: Open up the internet window, by clicking on the "blue e" on your desktop, or by going to the Start Menu, All programs, internet Explorer
  2. Step 3 blue-e-2_thumb.jpg From the Start Menu If the "blue E" is not in fact on your desktop then refer to the picture in this step.
  3. Step 4 toolsmenu_thumb.jpg Menu Bar 2: Once the internet is open, you will then want to go to the "Tools" Menu, in the internet window. If you are using internet explorer 7 the tools menu is on what is called the Menu bar, and this menu bar generally is in the upper left hand corner.

    Picture is attached.
  4. Step 5 internetoptions_thumb.jpg Internet options selection 3: Once you click the Tools Menu, then select, internet options. Image below attached, then click on internet options to go into the internet options dialog box.
  5. Step 6 ioptionsdialogbox_thumb.jpg Advanced Tab 4: Once you have selected the internet options click on the advanced tab all the way to the right, picture attached. Once you have selected, advanced at the bottom right there is an option there to RESET, this will restore the default settings, of your internet explorer Browser.
  6. Step 7 5: Reboot machine.


Also, another thing to consider is a system restore, if your computer is so bad that the above isn't working. For XP, system restore works wonders. See below for instructions on how to complete a system restore.

1.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3.
On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.

4.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
5.
Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
6.
The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.
After reviewing the stability of your system, you can choose another restore point or undo this restoration. Just open System Restore and make the appropriate choice. After you use System Restore, you'll have an additional task, Undo my last restoration, on the System Restore Welcome page. Remember that you'll have to reinstall any programs that were installed after the restore point.
If System Restore doesn't work in Normal Mode, it might work in Safe Mode. To use System Restore in Safe Mode, press the F8 key during reboot and choose Safe Mode. When your computer starts in either Safe Mode or Normal Mode, System Restore can be used to capture a working previous state. System Restore can't be opened unless the system is bootable into one of these modes.


...ok, im running out of breath here!! Hope all this helps - good luck!!
