Hi,
I would not go as far as to re-install Windows again, as your System still boots up, so there's no real need to.
What you can do however, is adjust the size of the Virtual Memory. You can do this by

1. Right Click on My Computer
2. Select Properties
3. You should now see the "System Properties" Box
4. Press the "Advanced" Tab.
5. Click on "Settings" Under Performance Option.
6. Under the "Performance Options" Box, Select the "Advanced" Tab.
7. At the bottom, under "Virtual Memory", click on "Change"
8. Next click on the "Custom" Radio Button Option.

Now, you'll need to know how much Ram is installed in your machine.
If you know this then to work out what figure you need to enter in the Custom Settings Fields, you will need to Multiply the amount of Ram installed in your machine by 1.5.

So for example. if you have 512mb of Ram installed you would use the following calculation : 512 x 1.5 which = 768
or if you have 1GB of ram then it would be 1024 x 1.5 = 1536

So, then if the Figures you get, match the ones that Windows already set in place to use, then you'll need to add upto 100 on the number, this will basically give you that extra bit of Virtual Memory to enable you to atleast download some Anti-Virus Software to see if you can clear up the problem fully.

Computer gets very slow by downloading anti virus....plz help me


The anti virus is needed for computer to protect from the viruses .
The anti virus consumes certain amount of cpu and memory usage.There are anti viruses that consume large amount of memory and CPU .
If your system have higher memory and CPU performance you can use any anti virus so that the performance is not downgraded to very much.

If you not having more memory and higher CPU in that case you can use anti virus that can consume less memory and also you can stop services in antivirals which are not necessary

Computer too low


AVG is good anti virus software which do not slow your system down and they do a free version, SuperAntispyware is also a good spyware program and again it's free.
If you google these you'll find them easy enough.
