Spybot is an anti-spyware program, which shouldn't affect the anti-virus at all. The thing is, though, you can have as many anti-spyware programs as you want, but only one virus scanner. Otherwise, things get messed up. But As long as there are no Norton, McAfee, CA Antivirus, Kaspersky, or things like that on the computer, you should be fine. Also, check your scanning schedule to see if maybe it is running a virus scan every time you boot to Windows. That would cause things to slow down tremendously. And you can go to Start > All Programs > Startup and delete things you don't need running when you start Windows. If you want, you can delete everything in that menu without any real negative effect. Those things can be started manually if you need them to.

My commputer is very slow could you help me speed it up?When opening a program it takes 10-15 mins gpr a program to open.


You probably have a number of viruses on your computer. My suggestion is to download these two programs and uninstall your current anti-virus software (if any).

AVG Free:

http://free.avg.com/us-en/homepage

AVG is a great anti-virus program that will always be running and protecting you.

Maleware Bytes:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/


You will want to run this free program as soon as you download it. It will remove any viruses on your computer. This is a great tool to use about once a month to make sure your computer is clean. Do a full scan and wait for it to complete. If you have completed the steps above and still have the problem, you will need more RAM. RAM is temporary memory that your computer uses when it is on. If you have very low RAM, then you will have a very slow computer.

Hi, I would say you need to reextract the rar file using whatever program you use. This should reassociate the rar file and allow the file to open again.

1.right click on the Spy Sweeper icon on the right hand side of the toolbar where the clock is located and select exit

2. press ctrl + alt + delete which will open the Task Manager.

3. Click on the Processes tab. Search for spysweeper.exe. If this process is running click on it then select end process.

Repeat this step to search for and close the process WRSSSDK.exe. After this is done Spy Sweeper should be able to be removed by using Add/Remove Programs

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

Computer too low


AVG is good anti virus software which do not slow your system down and they do a free version, SuperAntispyware is also a good spyware program and again it's free.
If you google these you'll find them easy enough.
