I was using norton at the time and after repeated trips to their knowledge base eradicated everything so it would show up clean in a safe scan, norton is now using 75% of the CPU in spikes and the internet etc is slower than ever. So I then had a go at "fixing" norton including giving them money for their latest effort etc etc still slow, still sucking up the cpu.
In a fit of pique I switched to AVG which turned up 250 odd infections on its first scan (up from 0 for nortons last effort) situation has improved but comp is still not back to normal speed especially internet.
I've tried reinstalling firefox, I use AVG, adaware, regscrubxp, ccleaner, defrag etc
AVG and adaware turn up nothing worse than the occaisional tracking cookie yet something is definately not right, its a family PC and it turns out we all use the internet more than we thought and everyone's giving me a hard time because it doesnt work.
Please help, thanks.
