My loptop is so slow and how can i fix the error


Hi aljon toyo

Your computer running slow could be indicating a virus,trojan,worm,or other malware and also just too many old program and files.
To speed up your computer do the following in order.
1...Clean up your Disk: Click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup.Click on the files you want to get rid of here.
2...Defragment your Hard drive: Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defragmenter
3...Delete old files, programs,pictures, etc that you don't use anymore...this will free up hard disk space.
4...Install and Run Microsoft Safety Scanner...
Go to the following website and download,install and run the FREE Microsoft Safety Scanner.
It will remove the virus,trojans,worms,etc from your computer.
It may take quite a while to finish, it all depends on the size of your hard drive.
Once the Microsoft Safety Scanner is completed running, it should have removed the virus,trojan,worm,etc. from you computer, but if it didn't remove the virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer then it will give you an option to connect (real time) with a Microsoft professional (FREE) and he will take over control of your computer (with you permission) and finish the removal process.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Laptop infected with worm? Help


No virus checker catches them all, and frankly, Norton 360 is pretty weak. Try running AVG, which is downloadable and free.
