Hi. I am having several issues with my computer. Some of the problems are: slow/no response from IE (I can enter a search term, especially on a third tab or different window, and it sits there trying to pull something up, but never reaches a site etc.), slow response on opening other applications, saving sites to favorites folders (sometimes the website screen that I am trying to save goes black momentarily) and it uusually takes between 5 and 10 seconds to get the menu when using the right button on my mouse.

I started getting these problems when I had Advanced System Care and IO Bit loaded on my system so I posted my problem in this forum and it was suggested that I remove them both and I did. Things have gone downhill ever since. (not to say that this was the problem).

I have scanned my system with Avast, Malwarebytes, and the slow and tedious Windows Defender. (If there is another application that you think I should have I am open to suggestions)

I have both IE8 and Mozilla Firefox.

Any help to ensure that there is no malicious software on my system would be greatly appreciated.

Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit OS
Dell Inspiron 518
Processor Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q6600@ 2.40GHz
RAM - 4 GB
