I am hoping somebody can help me with this. My computer is not working at all well and although i have scanned with Malwarebytes and Avast nothing has been found. My programs are hanging, closing down, and in general the computer is so slow no matter what i do. On top of that i have discovered that i have no calander to use on System resore. I have tried the trick of turning it off rebooting and turning back on to no avail. I was looking for something on the net last week and clicked on various sites but at least two of them suddenly came up with your computer is infected and tried to force me into downloading some scanner of some sort. I have a felling its infected the computer somehow.
I am running Windows XP Pro Version 2002 Service pack 3. Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.80GHz 2.79 GHz 504mb Ram. I am only using about a quarter of the memory so i dont think the computer should be as slow as it is and its heaps slower than it was a few weeks ago. Can anyone help please. Not an expert but am not completely novice. Thanks in advance
