Have you tried doing fresh installation on your system, by formatting your hard disk, and installing new windows, as this will remove all hidden virus on your hard drive and will turn the speed of your computer back to its normal stage.

Also when you load your computer's hard disk with too many files, it will reduce the speed of your system gradually and not necessarily virus. This is the reason why it is good to have an external hard drive where you can load some of your file instead of overloading the system hard drive.

So try this and let's see what happens.

Take care

Driverboost free version


Driverboost is known to cause damage and problems. In the future I recommend avoiding any programs that claim to update your drivers, boost your registry, or speed up your computer - they are all JUNK. and bad for your computer!

My computer is running slow it is a Dell and I have Norton 360 can you help me speed up?


Never use Norton Anti Virus, it is very hard software makes computer very slow, even Virus does not do that.


In my opinion use Avira Anti Virus. This is very light and powerfull anitvirus ever and also came 1 year full free with / in Chip Magazine DVD, and also can download from Internet as well as update too.

What is virus?


A virus is a rouge program is created by nasty people who want to infect your computer either to disrupt or destroy your computer or to steal information from your computer.
It is very important to protect your computer with an anti virus program and keep the virus definition file up to date, because as each new virus is discovered the virus definition file is updated the remove the new virus threat.

Very slow computer


First of all take an Anti virus and thoroughly clean your computer of Viruses because the Viruses can make your computer very slow. If you do not have an anti virus you can download free edition of AVG anti virus from the following link.
http://free.avg.com/ww-en/download-avg-anti-virus-free
Then take a good Registry cleaner. They are many registry cleaners being sold on the internet. Pick a good one and clean your registry it will add extra speed to your computer operation.

Computer speed


There are several ways to boost a Computer and there are also several reasons why the Computer is slow, like virus, ram, temporary files, cookies, cache files, cpu overheating, motherboard dust-clogged, power supply, etc..etc..

[in most cases antivirus like Norton slows down the system which makes the system unstable. Also note that there's no multiple antivirus softwares installed on your system, if so uninstall both or all and reinstall which you think is most effective]

Well, first try with this utility....(click here to download)
Install it, run both the "Cleaner" and "Registry" cleaner. Restart your computer and check if it helps or not.
If this doesn't help, you need to check the whole system, I would suggest you to clean everything inside the box including the ram and the cpu with the heat-sink as well. Blow away all the dust on the motherboard and on the power supply unit. (you'll need to disassemble your system to do this).

It's also important to install an updated antivirus and run a full system virus scan.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I am having sgh i310 samsung phone but it has been attack by virus what shld i do


Try to install antivirus if you dont have any, like kaspersky  free Trail.
Another option is format the phone and reinstall the software that really boost the speed as original. Remember to OFF the bluetooth when you dont use, that way you can prevent some virus coming in.
Best regard!

Computer turns on but freezes and doesnt load applications


Sounds like your computer is a old one, or is slow. The problem could be little RAM, which is what the computer calls speed and how fast it will open things, the CPU is too small, which is the main processing unit and causes slow speeds if it is not one of the latest CPUs or your Hard Drive is full and doesn't have enough free room to run anything well. Fist thing i want you to do is run a virus scanner to make sure you have n viruses causing the problem. if its all clear go into my computer, find the C Drive and right click on the icon and go into properties and check its free room. if its less than 250MB delete programs you don't use or don't need anymore. Now go into Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools and open Disk Defragmenter and Click on Defragment to begin the process. This will give you more free room and give it a small boost of speed in opening programs. This can take a very long time, talking hours so best to do it at night. A good way to boost your computers speed is to give it Virtual Memory, Which turns some of your hard drive into RAM. Right Click on My computer>Properties>Advanced and look for Performance and press 'Settings'>Advanced> and find Virtual memory and press change and click on the 'Custom size button' and Put '1024' into 'Initial size(MB) and put '2048' into 'Initial size(MB) and then click set then ok. It may ask you to reset your system. Do this. Now see if your application programs load faster. if not its a hardware problem and take it into a computer Technitian to get some more RAM in it to speed it up.

Hope This Helps

High Speed and viruses


Slowness can be caused by viruses.

Run a virus scan and see what comes up.
If there are viruses on the computer, you may want to consider Restoring your computer to factory settings.

But before you do that
Run a virus scan; go to Symantec and run it or download AVG free.

If you decide to restore to factory settings, I will be glad to help you. Understand, you will loose everything on the computer, and you will have to run all your programs again, set up your network connection and email. Very time consuming.
