Computer slow... struggles


Most likely loaded up with unnecessary programs (that you dont use anymore) running on start up, or duplicate programs trying to do the same job (multiple antivirus or spyware programs), or viruses/spyware running in the background, or being hacked (someone remotely using your system), or Windows programming not updated, or system drivers not updated, or it may just be slow because your antivirus/antispyware program is running. Whew! If its not any of these, maybe your computer needs to be upgraded? Extra ram/memory usually helps if you dont have much. These are good solutions I have come across in my 20+ years working with computers. For most people, the fastest and easiest way to eliminate any software/virus/spyware problem is to delete everything (format) and do a fresh install of all windows, windows updates, and motherboard drivers. If it is still slow after that, then a hardware upgrade is highly recommended.

I have a trogen virus and no money can I fix it for free?


You can use free antivirus like Avira, Avg or Avast, they are as effective as full version antivirus if updated regularly and registered successfully.

You can download::
1. Avast Free

2. Avg Free

4. Avira Free


Don't install two antivirus at a time, if you are installing one of them or if there's any antivirus program installed on your computer, please uninstall and install the new one, otherwise you may have another problem with your problem.

First install Avast and run a full system scan, then check the scanned result, if you are sure that those trojans or virus etc..etc.. are removed, you are done, no need to uninstall and reinstall the other, or if you still doubt, you can try with the other two after the first one is uninstalled.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Run your anti virus and anti malware programs. If you do not have a anti malware program go to cnet.com and download a free anti malware program. It sounds as if you have a virus on your computer

Ijust paid for and downloaded webroot antivirus it will not sweep. I KEEP GETTING message that it is closing and also 4 critical shields are off i cannot turn them on


It may be that another virus program is interfearing with Webroot, I used it for a couple of years and liked it, but what happens with many of these antivirus programs is that they make them so sensitive that any other trojen virus or spyware can set them off or prevent them from running. Try disabling any other protection you have and see if it runs, unplug from the net prior to doing this. Also you have to enable web root in your firewall or that will stop active scripts, Let me know, I know it's difficult to reach a specific techs, but I will try my best to follow you thru the system, Peace Gym

Systems failar not responding due to infected files ,how to stablize


Hello,
If you know where the infected files are you can delete the files and which might speed it up enough to run an Antivirus program. If you can get online and download a program from Download.com just search for Antivirus and will come up with a list. Download and install one. Run the scan on Drive C: which it will ask for you to choose. If you have one already installed, then try and run it. It will take really really long(10mins.) to open up. If it doesn't do it by then the PC might freeze up and won't work which will require to turn it off and then on. If you can't do anything with it, chances are you will need to take it to have it repaired.

Let me know if I can be of more assistance to you.
