I would recommend a free anti-virus software, such as Avast! or AVG Free. I personally use Avast! and have no qualms with it after almost one full year of use. These should clean your computer right out of both viruses, and spyware.
Avast! download: http://download.cnet.com/Avast-Free-Antivirus/3000-2239_4-10019223.html?part=dl-85737&subj=dl&tag=button
AVG download: http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition-2011/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?part=dl-10044820&subj=dl&tag=button&cdlPid=11014801
Unfortunately, Acer does not have a system restore key available on their website. That would've been the best method.
I hope this helps!

When i open an internet browser to connect to the internet my computer stalls then stops working


HI

OK, it sound like your browsers have become unstable and causing some issues. If you can, download a copy of Advanced System Care (version 6 is the current one) Its FREE and very good at cleaning up your PC. Run a full scan with this as it will try and repair any Registry issues that could be causing the problem. Alternatively, uninstall Chrome browser, restart your pc and reinstall so you have a ecopy, this can solve many issues.

Also, do a full virus check with a good virus package like Kaspersky, Webroot or AVG. Also, download a copy of Malwarebytes Anti Malware (its also free) and do a full scan with this, just incase the issue is virus related.
Hope this helps

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!

How do you reset laptops because my toshiba laptop is slower then before


One reason why laptops, and other computers slow down is because of a malware inside. Virus,worms, spyware etc. You can also twic your laptop by clicking control panel then choose to defragment it. You can also free up disk space. You can also run the anti virus, and scan for any malware. Do a complete scan if you do. I hope you have a working anti virus, and not expired. You can also download a completely free antivirus called AVG anti virus. It will at least give a basic protection untill you decide to purchase one. Good luck.

How will i remove the virus manually?


i hope you got norton off your system before putting AVG free on. Virus programs try to fight off other virus programs by postiong false virus claims to erase the other program. eventually they will kill your hard drive. You need a product key for a good virus protectant. Norton or CA offer good, reliable protection for your dollar. What i would do, is back up any really important stuff you have there, format your hard drive and install Vista again if you have the disc and then re-install it to permanetly delete viruses. Also your system maybe slow because VIsta needs at least a dual core processor and 2 GB RAM to work like a XP machine

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.
