I had a virus about 6 months ago and (from what I see) it is gone.
My PC is about 5 years old. I realize I can't expect some ridiculous response rate, but Windows 95, 33.6 modem, this is not.
There's gotta be something wrong that I can fix. I'm almost at the point of desperation where I call those infomercial numbers for like "PC Speed Pro" or some garbage like that.
Some random specs:
Dell Dimension 2400
Pentium 4 2.8GHz
256 MB RAM
Windows XP Pro
75 GB HD (46.5 GB free space)
I just cleaned out the inside of the computer (good idea, it was full of dust), ran AVG, MalwareBytes, SUPERAntiSpyware, and tried to run the CPU temp programs, but it said my Intel wasn't compatible. I think the cleaning helped a bit, but I think that's more me hoping it helped than it actually helping.
