Hi! I was wondering how likely it is to be infected with something even though my Virus/Spyware scans aren't detecting anything? I have PC-Cillin, and lately, my CPU is going back and forth from 50% to 90% with the only thing showing that is actually running being PC-Cillin. My computor sounds like it's constantly proccessing SOMETHING. I downloaded Ad-Aware, and Spybot, then I found out that Spybot can cause PC-Cillin to act funny, so I un-immunized it, uninstalled it, and removed all associated files. My PC is still acting up though. I have tried deleting shortcuts on the desktop, Disk Cleanup, Defrag, and even resorted to a System Restore, but nothing is helping. Any ideas on anything I haven't tried yet would be appreciated! Thank you.

If your computer seems to be slow, read Slow Computer/Browser? Check here first; it may not be malware. There are reasons for slowness besides malware - i.e. disk fragmentation, disk errors, corrupt system files, too many startup programs, unnecessary services running, not enough RAM, dirty hardware components, etc. As your system gets older it becomes filled with more files/programs and has a natural tendency to slow down so cleaning and regular maintenance is essential.

Thanks alot! I thought I had done everything I could. But I haven't heard of check disk before, and that seems to have cleared things up alot! I know we need more RAM, but can't afford it right now, I just wanted it to run the way it used to, and thanks to your reply, it does now! I really do appreciate your help!!!
