So I have an HP Pavilion laptop that's almost 4 years old now. I'm kind of surprised it's lasted this long. Anyway, it originally came with Vista, but this year I switched to Window's 7. After switching to Window's 7, it was a lot faster than before. However, it has been acting up again lately. I scanned it with the COMODO Anti-Virus program and 8 threats came up. I clicked "Clean" and I'm not sure if they're gone now. I was wondering if someone could give me instructions on basically making sure my laptop is virus-free? And hopefully, speed it up some more because it has slowed down a bit. Some of the Window's 7 functions don't work that well anymore. For example, the mini preview of browser windows when you scroll over the programs in the taskbar only works intermittently now. I'm not sure what's up. Any help would be deeply appreciated!
