Computer constantly stalls

I have windows Vista Basic Edition. I have Windows Firewall, Adaware 2007. Spybot Search and Destroy, Spyware Blaster, and Avast. I have run all and they all say no viruses etc. found. But It takes forever to access the next web page. My computer just stalls for 2-3 minutes the page comes up and then if I need to go to another page problem is the same. I have done everything suggested to clean up my computer and nothing has helped. Do I have Spyware or a virus? I am a real novice at this can someone please help!!!!

Re: computer constantly stalls

I you have installed all these programs. Then that itself could cause the problem. ununstall all these programs, go to, Download the free edition for virus and spyware, install these both update them on the net, run a complete scan for virus and sypware.

You should never install multiple security softwares at the same time. If you feel one software is not doing well. Uninstall it, restart your system, then install another software and do the scanning.

Computer very slow ,won't print,forever to load pages, have corrupted files

Several things can slow down the computer: overheating, spyware, not enough RAM etc. If you know for sure you have corrupted files were they corrupted by a virus? You may need to reinstall Vista.

Is it slow when you boot up in safe mode? To boot into safe mode hit (usually) F8 while it is booting up. Let it completely boot into safe mode and then reboot again. Now is if it is behaving better.

To get rid of spyware download the free Spybot Search & Destroy from the net, run the update and then run it to dectect and get rid of the spyware. Spyware tries to send info which can slow down everything.

Overheating - does it feel hot? Is the fan running and pushing air?

If it worked fine before it is unlikely you don't have enough RAM. Windows itself needs at least 256mbs to run well without running other problems.

Again if you know files are corrupted, if they are windows files, you might need to reinstall vista.

Error message when i log toto my computer

This is for MyWebsearch which is considered to be spyware/malware. Best bet is to uninstall it through add/remove programs then download, install, update and run Spybot Search and Destroy (google it). Very good program for removing nasties from your machine.

Vista connection problems

With internet explorer/firefox connectivity issues.. More than likely, you\'re having virus and/or spyware related issues. Go to and download adaware and spybot and run full system scans and see where that takes. I\'d stay away from **** sites too :) lol

Try downloading and running Spyware Terminator and Spybot Search & Destroy. Both can be downloaded from PC World for free. Be sure to update each program before you scan. If you want to try an online scan, try Trend Micro Housecall, which is free..
