Virus scan, apyware scan

by Pringles86 In reply to slow computer

How much RAM does the computer have? OS? Free hard drive space?

Go here: and do a virus scan on the computer.

Then go here: to download spybot, download all of the updates, perform a scan, then remove all the bad stuff.

Let me know if it all works out.
