Is the antispyware a program that you installed? Did you buy it or is ita freeware program? Or is it part of your virus control program? If so which program sdo you use?If you purchased it, go to the main icon on your desktop or under all programs and open the main console. Update the program and Try to run a scan. This should clean up the spyware on your computer. If it does, you need to do the same with your virus control unless they are part of the same program. Don't forget to update before you scan.

In the meantime, please get back to me with the name of the spyware program, your virus control program,your operating system and type of computer. If you cannot do the above, please let me know. Thank You.

What is happening with AOL? I have been having lots of pop ups, slow computer and AOL telling me they are having problems? My computer very slow?


Is you computer slow when using software offline? If so, it is either AOL or your internet. Don't judge the speed strictly by going to AOL. Go to Speakeasy Speed Test and test your internet speed. If that shows your internet is running at the speed you are paying for, it si AOL having trouble. You don't say which browser you are using, but most browsers have an option to block pop-ups. Make sure it is on.
Run a virus scan on your PC to see if it is infected. Also defrag your hard drive to speed it up some.

Slowing slow and probems keep coming


Hello Nancy,
There are many reasons a computer can slow down. Here are some maintenance procedtures you should do on a regular basis.
You should defrag your hard disk ona regular basis to keep your computer up to speed. Many of these tasks can be automated with the scheduling features in Windows.
Check for and install any operating system updates. Make sure you have "Automatic Updates" turned on.
Run a full system anti-virus and anti-spyware scan. Make sure your anti-virus and anti-spyware software are up to date. If you don't have these on your computer, there are many good free anti-virus software. Do a Google search for free anti-virus and anti-spyware. Also, clear the cache on your browser. Delete all history and cookies and temp folders. There are also websites such as http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ that does free online scans.
You should also stop unwanted progams from stsrting. To do this go to Start menu, enter msconfig, and click OK. Click startup and uncheck startup programs you don't use. Then click services and uncheck services you don't use. If after doing this and something stops working that you need, again bring up startup and services and re-check the ones you want to run.

These basic maintenance steps should help keep your computer running up to speed.
I hope this helps you.

Check for and install any operating system updates. Make sure you have "Automatic Updates" turned on.

Run a full system anti-virus and anti-spyware scan. Make sure your antivirus and antispyware software are up to date. Also, clear the cache on your browser.

These basic maintenance steps should help keep your computer running up to speed. I hope this helps you.

My computer is very slow connecting to the internet and then very often locks up


This may caused by a malicious software such as viruses or worms that may have been downloaded on your computer online.

You need to run a scan on your computer to check. You can actually use Malwarebytes or Super-Antispyware if you do not have any Anti-Virus software that you can use.

Also, you need to optimize, or clean your computer against clutters, temporary internet files or temporary files that are stored in your computer. You can run CCleaner to delete the temporary files on your computer.

Also uninstall programs that you no longer need to free up memory resource/use on your computer.

If all else fails, you might want to check if your computer needs to upgrade the RAM to make your computer run faster.

Computer runs slow. which antivirus is best for installing.


Hi,
Microsoft works constantly to release updates to Windows and other Microsoft products, including Office. At Microsoft Update, you can find and install all these updates—not just the critical ones. Often, these updates will improve your computer's performance.
You can make life easier by automating Microsoft Update so your computer downloads and installs all the updates without you having to worry about them.
To automate Microsoft Update:
  1. In your Start menu, click Control Panel.
  2. In the Automatic Updates dialog box, check the Automatic (Recommended) check box. You can define the time of day when your computer checks for updates. If the computer finds any updates, it will download and install them automatically for you.
  3. Click OK.

Install antivirus and antispyware programs Computer viruses and spyware (hidden software that gathers information about you without your knowledge or consent when you're using a computer) both reduce system performance. Computer viruses can not only reduce performance, but they can also destroy data. Any computer that accesses the Internet should have antivirus and antispyware programs installed.
Smooth running
Follow these steps and you'll have your computer purring like a vintage Porsche (or whatever your dream car of choice is). And the best part? Maintaining your computer is a lot less messy than an automobile. You don't even have to roll up your sleeves

Runs slow sticks


The link I've give you below is linked to CCleaner which is a registry cleaner for your computer which basically removes un-needed data e.g. Internet History, Internet cache, computer logs and it also fixes shortcuts or any files which are not working correctly.

I use this software on my computer every time I shut down and it has made my computer work much faster.

Here's the link: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download you can download free if you select the 'alternative download'.

After use internet my pc,s speed very slow.


Your computer may be infected with a virus. Are you running any anti virus software?

Do a simple scan of your machine using anti virus software - If you have none installed, download and install this.

I have included AVG as its free.
http://www.avg.com/

Log off from the internet and run the scans - if you haven't run one before this may take several hours.

The clean up should remove any old entries and also detect any virus which may be slowing down your machine.
