No components are attacked by viruses or trojans, only software and the bios can be attacked, and obviously they are prevented by antivirus/spyware programmes

How can a website get malware without password


Malware can download to your computer just by clicking on a website set up by a hacker or someone. This can be clicking on a link that is in an email sent to you.
If you have a virus scanning software installed on your computer it will detect malwares and viruses and prevent these attacks.

Internet in my computer is very slow


Slow Internet can be caused by many thing, I need more info to make a informed suggestion, But you can start be running a FULL virus scan with a good anti virus, also you want to run a FULL scan with a malware program, I would suggest using MALWAREBYTES found here:http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/. If you do not have a UP TO DATE Anti-Virus, one can be found on the filehippo site for free, REMEMBER to uninstall the anti virus on your machine, if you want to try another anti virus, always use the Makers REMOVAL TOOL if they supply one, I use AVAST, but that is your choice. If you have a Anti Virus make sure it's updated and working properly. You statement,"Internet in my computer is very slow" does not give me much to work with. Need computer Manufactuer, Model, type OS, etc. Also are you using TOOLBARS on you IE or what ever Broswer you are using. TOOLBARS, MESSENGERS, CHAT, any thing that is "hogging" your resourses when using your broswer SHOULD BE DISABLED, the rule is the more "Stuff" you have running, on you computer at start, or your broswer will slow it down. It's like YOU, on a long walk, ever half mile you pick up a 10 pound weight, after a day treck you have to slow down a bit. To make a short story long, GET RID OF THE EXCESS BAGGAGE. If you need assistance respond to this solution.

Frozen cusor!


I reckon you can still start the computer.  Try to go back to a System Restore point that had the computer functioning well.

Your computer could be under attack from Adaware, Spyware and Malaware or even viruses.  Please get to www.lavasoft.com and download the free version of Ad-Aware to clean up your computer and visit www.grisoft.com to download a Trial version of AVG Antivirus to protect your computer against viruses and you may find that investing in the licenced software may protect your computer against external attacks.  Please dont forget to keep the Ad-Aware updated regularly.
