    Thank you for posting your issue. Could you provide me with what operating system you're using? In addition to Windows Defender and Virgin Broadband PC guard, what other software are you using to protect your PC?

The reason might be a lot of programs installed on your laptop...you can opt for one of the followings: Upgrade your Laptop [add some RAM] Reinstall Windows [make sure you have drivers]. Run SmitFraud Fix...download from here http://www.afterdawn.com/software/desktop_software/desktop_security/smitfraudfix.cfm
I would suggest you to upgrade.

    i can understand how irated you must be...happens with me all the time.
    go to START--ALL PROGRAMS--ACCESSORIES--SYSTEM TOOLS--DISK CLEANUP [this will cleanup your C drive] on the SYSTEM TOOLS there's DISK DEFRANGMENTER use that too especially for C drive.
    but

    Dude you should reinstall the Windows OS if you want performance.Installing,uninstalling and reinstalling programs also causes slow performance.

Slow pc. may have virus?


Do you have an anti virus installed in your computer? If you have one, then run an anti-virus scan in your computer.

The problem seems virus related.

If your anti virus can't fix the problem, then you need to clean reinstall the whole operating system to get rid of the virus.

I hope this helps!

Internet in my computer is very slow


Slow Internet can be caused by many thing, I need more info to make a informed suggestion, But you can start be running a FULL virus scan with a good anti virus, also you want to run a FULL scan with a malware program, I would suggest using MALWAREBYTES found here:http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/. If you do not have a UP TO DATE Anti-Virus, one can be found on the filehippo site for free, REMEMBER to uninstall the anti virus on your machine, if you want to try another anti virus, always use the Makers REMOVAL TOOL if they supply one, I use AVAST, but that is your choice. If you have a Anti Virus make sure it's updated and working properly. You statement,"Internet in my computer is very slow" does not give me much to work with. Need computer Manufactuer, Model, type OS, etc. Also are you using TOOLBARS on you IE or what ever Broswer you are using. TOOLBARS, MESSENGERS, CHAT, any thing that is "hogging" your resourses when using your broswer SHOULD BE DISABLED, the rule is the more "Stuff" you have running, on you computer at start, or your broswer will slow it down. It's like YOU, on a long walk, ever half mile you pick up a 10 pound weight, after a day treck you have to slow down a bit. To make a short story long, GET RID OF THE EXCESS BAGGAGE. If you need assistance respond to this solution.

I have toshiba laptop satellite l650-15g core i5 is working to slow like Pentium 2 every think is opening to late please help me fast


use these steps:
1- reinstall your operating system (OS).
2- after the OS installed , download and install a powerful anti virus(with latest updates) (like NOD32 ANTI Virus or Kaspersky etc)

3- start a full scan (in anti virus options).
4- reinstall your OS again and enjoy fast speed.
NOTE:always remember to use an updated anti virus on your Laptop.
and if your laptop worked slow again use this way:
1- start "RUN" from start menu.(if you are using windows 7 go to accessories)
2- enter "msconfig".
3- go to startup tab.
4- disable some installed software (like yahoo messenger or ID Manager etc) in start up but be careful not to disable windows applications.

The function becomes slow after i install a anti virus.


it is normal...

all anti virus needs memory test...

all of them if you enable in start up you will experience slow start also.. you will feel that your computer is slow because all of your task are scanned by your anti -virus...

if you still want your anti-virus running but you don't want your pc to be slow..you can customize the anti-virus options...

you can select there what actions your anti virus will do and what you don't want to do...

ex. stopping your instant messaging shield...
stopping p2p shield...
stopping network dshield...
stopping web shield...
stopping standard shield...

you can also customize it by not letting the autorun of the virus in system start up...

hope i've help you..

MY COMPUTER IS SLOW


Greetings my friend, regarding on your problem try to see if you have installed and update an anti virus software in your computer/Laptop then if is it installed then run the anti virus and scan and clean all your drives in your computer otherwise install and update your anti virus software. Also try to check also the files that you have stored in your drives. Delete those files in the recycle bin. Also defrage your drives. If you are using Windows XP then follow this: To defrage your drives go to start button then all programs then accessories then system tools and then click Disk Defragment. then follow the steps given by the computer. Reasons why our computer/Laptop runs slow cause of some viruses/worms and overcrowded files particularly picture and music files. Also too much program installed in your computer/Laptop. Need to have a good management systems in your computer to maintain your desire accuracy and speed of your computer/Laptop.

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.
