Question about Computers & Internet
You need to be more specific with your problem, like do you haveananti-virus software installed on your computer? If so whatisit? I suggest you invest in getting one and that wouldpreventyou from getting a virus if you got a good one, and would removeit foryou more likely too. And as for the addware, I strongly suggestyoudownload adaware which will detect all adware and will deleteit. You can download that at www.lavaware.com for free.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run
Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager Button.
In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage.
PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high,
click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what
processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process
"Image name" is for, Google the name and you should find what the
process is for.
If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:
An excellent free utility for overall system maintenance is Advanced System Care Free ( http://download.cnet.com/advanced-systemcare-free/3000-2086_4-10407614 .html ). I use this utility on a regular basis.
You should always run anti-virus software. There are several very good, free, anti-virus products available. One good source to read editor and user reviews, and safely download anti-virus software, is http://download.cnet.com -- search for free antivirus software. In addition to the reviews, you can see how many people are downloading the software, which is another good indicator of how popular it is.
I have used AVG Free ( http://download.cnet.com/avg-anti-virus-free/3000-2239_4-10320142.html ) , and Avast Free ( http://download.cnet.com/avast-free-antivirus/3000-2239_4-10019223.htm l ). Both are very good, and completely free. At present I am using Avast on all of my home computers.
I have heard good things about Avira AntiVir Free ( http://download.cnet.com/Avira-AntiVir-Personal-Free-Antivirus/3000-22 39_4-10322935.html ), and it has good ratings, but I have not personally tried it.
In addition to Avast or one of the other free anti-virus software packages, I also run Ad-Aware ( http://download.cnet.com/ad-aware-free-internet/3000-8022_4-10045910.h tml ). Ad-Aware is a free anti-malware, anti-spyware package.
