    Please list the details of your machine and components. Wich network provider you are using and the specifics of the issues you are having. Is it that you are experiencing slowness with internet or with the actual processing of files on your computer etc. McAfee is one of the most cpu and process intensive anti virus programs and depending on your Operating System and computer specifications it could be taking a signinificant amount of resources. But we will need more information to make a determination.

I agree with Celenous, this could be a cause of McAfee, consider removing that software and purchasing a less intense anti virus. I like BitDefender|2489416886 , it has two different modes so if you are a gamer you can turn it down so that it doesnt request information from you and it refrains from doing any scanning until you turn it back on. Other things I suggest you should do, obviously you only had this computer for a month and must have installed a few things I would suggest defragging the computer and running a clean up. Check for adware, install Ad-Aware from Lavasofts website , they have a free version that works wonders on a system. CCleaner is also a great product . This will also clean up some unneeded files that clog up the computer that make it run so slow.

Possibly too late if it already has issues. Try downloading iobit, run the malware removal programme and then install your chosen anti virus programme. Bear in mind, without help you will never be able to remove Macafee. It is worse than a virus. Iobit works as well and is free!

My sony vaio has become so slow, used to respond so quickly, especially when first signing on.

There should be no need to run memtest again. 7 passes should be considered a sufficient test.

Some antivirus suites have been known to actually cause crashes in Windows 7 with certain system configurations.
If removing your antivirus solves your problem, you have found your culprit. You can switch to microsoft security essentials if you need to. It's not the greatest thing ever but it does work.

My sony vaio Signature series VPCX135KX is too slow, i guess there's a virus that is not detectable by my antivirus

Go to type malwarebytes anti-malware and install ccleaner, run cleaner first, and run a full scan with malwarebytes, and defrag your hard drive.

My Sony Vaio VGN-FS980 (Windows XP) is running really slow.

The Sony Vaio slow issue can be caused by reasons like lack of free disk space, registry corruption or redundancy, overload startup programs, virus attack, fragmented hard drive etc.

There are manual ways to get all those issues fixed but it costs time and energy, and most importantly it needs technical skills. So I'll recommend a quick yet easy speed up solution, as you can see here:

Sony Vaio VGN-FS980 is slow

Aside from hardware many things can slow up your PC:
  • If the C: drive is too full Windows is unable to allocate a proper virtual memory cache on the drive.
  • Your chosen anti-virus solution can even slow certain machines down (post what your running)
  • A high % of the time it is spyware/malware related
Just to make sure the machine is completely malware free you should download and run this program.
