Well I just wanted to say thanks. Her computer still isnt really as fast as I wanted it. It use to take 4 minutes and 56 secs, to start up now it take 4mins. But there was one virus, and a whole bunch of files she didnt need. I didnt dare to defrag cause I was afraid it would mix things up or what not. But heres a list of stuff I did do, I did.....
Avast Anti Virus (1 Virus)
CCleaner
Spybot S&D (she already had it it just wasnt up to date)
Ad-Aware
Air Blew her computer out.

I think that well be alright. I was gonna do Highjack This but...I figured I didnt want too much stuff on her computer. Thanks for helping me out. I just hope she doesnt get mad at me for screwing around with her computer. Thanks a bunch.

Defraging her computer will speed it up a little. When you defrag it what it does is take files that are scattered all over the harddrive and puts them together in order. That way the computer don't have to search all over the harddrive for the file you are using.

I hope this made since :thumbsup:
