I think you mean there is a virus on your computer, try using Windows One Care Scanner to get rid of it, if not then you will probably have to reformat your computer. Sorry, Hope this helps :)

If you had antivirus prior to installing Kaspersky then that could be the issue. Having more than one antivirus causes issues since they scan files that are in use. So when one antivirus scans a file, the other does and they loop causing your computer to slow down.
If that isn't the case, I'd recommend booting into safemode, installing Malwarebytes Antimalware and doing a full scan after you update it. Malwarebytes is free and very good. You can boot into safemode by pressing F8 during startup.

You can download and install Kaspersky Internet Security 2011(KIS 2011). Activate the trial version and update the virus database. Scan the computer for viruses. It will remove any malware (viruses, spyware, adware etc.) and speed up your computer.
You can use trial version of KIS 2011 for a month. After that you can register it if you like it, or uninstall it. KIS provides many tools for safer computing.

Slow speed


If you do not have sufficient anti virus / spyware software then you most likely have a virus.
Clarify with what antivirus you have installed if any...
If you don't have any then I would suggest buying one of the following
Bit Defender Internet Security or Antivirus Pro http://www.bitdefender.com/2011/en/internetsecurity2011/?gclid=CLjrkuuU-6kCFQQCbAodJX-fZg
Webroot Internet Security or Antivirus with spysweeper http://www.webroot.com/En_US/consumer.html
or Kaspersky Internet Security http://usa.kaspersky.com/store/all-products?c_id=GOO1673628
Once installed make sure to update the software and run a full scan If you are unable to update the software Reboot the computer and press F8 until you get a menu Select "Safemode with networking" You should now be able to update the software and run a full scan

What info we need to help you better..
1.How much memory you have .
2.You've already stated the brand and model#
3.You've stated the program for your security program (kaspersky)
4.processor type speed.


Your computer may seem a bit slow but you are actually slowing it down by trying to use it while scanning.

*************************RECAPP***************************
1. YOUR COMPUTER SLOW BECAUSE = Kaspersky is working to scan,detect, and disable any thing thats harmful for you.

2. YOUR INTERNET IS SLOW(ER)= Once you connected to the web that added more for Kaspersky to check on,which it does the internet scan in real time, thats another 15% of your memory and resources loaded over.

*************************RECOMMENDATIONS***********************
1. LEAVE YOUR COMPUTER ON LONG ENOUGH TO COMPLETE THE SCANS IT NEED TO DO, ONCE ITS COMPLETE YOU'LL NOTICE YOUR COMPUTER WILL RESPOND FASTER.

2. I PERSONALLY USE (2) PROGRAMS THAT DONT USE TOO MUCH OF MY COMPUTERS' RESOURCES AND MEMORY AND THE ARE:****THREATFIRE (INTERNET, AND PORT SCANNER)********, *************MICROSFT SECURITY ESSENTIALS (VIRUS,MAL-WARE,TROJANS,ECT)********


***********************SOMETHING ELSE TO LOOK FOR****************************
LOOK AT THE BOTTOM RIGHT NEXT TO YOUR TIME...
HOW MANY ITEMS DO YOU HAVE DOWN THERE,
ALL THOSE ITEMS REQUIRE SOME MEMORY TO KEEP THERE , YOU'LL NEED TO FIND ONES THAT YOU DONT NEED ANDSTOP THEM FROM LOADING .

NEXT ONE IS (RIGHT) CLICK YOUR STAT BAR (OR TASK BAR ) THE FIRST THING TO DO IS UNCHECK --> LOCK THE TASK BAR

THEN (RIGHT) CLICK THE TASK BAR AGAIN HOVER OVER TOOLS,THEN UNCHECK ----> QUICK LAUNCH .............THIS WILL HELP TO SPEED YOU UP ON STARTUP(POWER ON) AND FREE SOME RESOURCES

***********************************NOTES***************************
THROUGH-OUT THIS INFO I REALLY PRAY THAT I DIDN'T CONFUSE YOU ANY MORE THAT YOU MAY ALREADY BE I'M ON ALL THE TIME IF I CAN HELP YOU ANY BETTER... , PLEASE RATE ME IF I'VE HELP YOU ANY

Serial key of kaspersky antivirus 2011..pls


There are numerous free antivirus solutions out there without having to get an illegal license. I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials. Searching the internet for "kaspersky license" is a great way to end up with a nasty virus on your computer.

Anti Virus


Kapersky Internet security is the complete software suite, and it does include, firewall, internet security and some anti spyware feature.

Internet security is better, but it will also slow down the computer more.

If you have a good computer with at least 1 GB RAM, and CPU at least 1.6 GHZ intall Internet security. If the computer is slow or it is an old computer, then install antivirus only, and be more careful.
