I've installed and ran various virus scans
Microtrend house call
found / deleted
Rogue Internet Antivirus
a couple others I cant remember, i should have wrote them down.
the computer is running relatively well but still very slow, particularly norton antivirus
which is also causing problems in the sense that every time I open it or try and run a scan it asks me to update the virus definitions and that it needs to restart.
similarly windows update always seems to need updates whenever the computer is restarted?
I've deleted old programs and checked startup and they are fine
Tried running disk clean but it just runs the comp usage up to 100% and doesnt pass "Compressing Old Files", it doesnt freeze it just doesnt go past "compressing old files" as if it is incapable of doing so.
Is there anyway to recover the computer without reformatting?
