E-machine running slow

Hey,
I am having problems with my e-machine running slow. I have run a anti-virus check and a malware check (through windows update) on my computer. However, those checks did not indicate any problems on my computer,and my computer is still running slow (tortoise slow).
I am a patient girl but not that patient ! Should I just get a new computer? If so what product do you suggest?

Press Ctrl. + Alt + Del and go to processes, arange them by name so it should show your computer's name and then system for those that are runing from system...
if you see a huge list mainly with the computer's name it means that your runing too much **** in the background... I would recomend you go to your Startmenu, press the "run" button, then inside the text field type in msconfig, after you've done so go to "startup" tab...
once again if you see a lot of checkboxes you may want to consider removing a few of them so that your computer will boot faster and not load useless programs.

Your computer is constipated. Turn off all your virus programs,stay away from porn sites, then type msconfig in the run box, hit enter, select startup and remove all checks. Reboot computer.

Computer runs slow


It sounds like you might have some type of virus or other malware.

Here's some things I would recommend to start with:

  1. Install and run a scan with the free version of Malwarebytes, removing any malware items found.
  2. Run a second scan using the ESET online scanner, removing any malware items found
  3. Install and run ccleaner to clean up unneeded temporary files.
If these steps don't resolve the problem, you may want to seek professional help.

What is the best free firewall


Your windows firewall, it came with and designed for your OS. That said, your firewall is only one line of defense. Depending on your OS, not provided, you need a good Anti Virus and a Malware program install and updated and used regularly. What do you have as a Anti Virus and Malware protection? most new machines come with a Anti Virus installed as a trial Version, when the trial runs out it mostly out of service, no updates. A good malware program like MALWAREBYTES is a life saver to rid your system of malware issues that slow your system down at best and can be much worse. If you do not have Malwarebytes it can be found, along with many helpful software programs at thei site: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ This version is FREE.
