If anyone has any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate them! I will try and make this short. 2 weeks ago, we got a virus. One of those fake security alerts. I think it was called Internet Security 2010. Anyway, I ran Malwarebytes and got rid of it..I ran it again to make sure. Ever since then the 2 main issues we are having is the computer is very slow at times, and also freezes up during games. The games I am referring to are like hidden object games, casino games etc..nothing major. We have a Dell Dimension E310. Not sure on the complete specs, sorry! I have done the following to try and fix it..Disk Cleanup, defrag, registry fix (ccleaner), virus scans, I removed ALL photos and music and saved them to discs..I am not sure what else to do. I am thinking it is a hard drive issue? I got the blue screen of death the other day. Said something about IRQL not equal etc etc. The last resort is to take it to Best Buy, but they charge a fortune! I was trying to fix it on my own, but not sure if it's even possible! Any suggestions? Thanks! We have FIOS, not sure if that helps!
