I saw the post for slow computer and I'll read and head the directions given. But I am a hacker of sorts and try to fix my own stuff.... and am usually pretty successful. But maybe someone can save me some time, energy, and headache. I have an older HP computer running XP. It is my daughter's laptop. She doesn't live with me so I haven't been watching it. Her antivirus expired and I think she picked up something. Everything works great except when you get on the internet. I tried putting a different browswer on.... Firefox, and still no good. Very, very slow going.
I went through all the basics.... cleared cache, disk clean, defrag, used system restore, and even tried reloading windows. But still bogging. Anyone have some suggestions as to where to start?
