My girlfriends computer is being very slow. she asked me to look at it and this is what it is:
windows xp home
probably running a 1.5ghz
probably 512mb ram
the think is this happened to me a few years ago and i got mine working again. it was a virus.
It is very difficult and frustrating to do anything on that computer. I have avg free spybot ad aware on a usb drive and tried loading them and installing them. I got nowhere. I tried in safe mode and got no where too. What should I do?
I do have a windows xp oem cd but i dont know what the drivers or or anything like that.
cpu usage ranges from 0 to 100, stays at 100 for awhile. Get prompts that my computer is infected with the netstar virus or something like that. IE pages come up, some are about scanning my system others are about weird porn or whatever.
