Hello,


Essentially, while I feel there may be some hardware issues regarding my e-machines desktop computer, I do not experience any problems while I run Linux, which I find curious. Therefore the real indicator of some malware is the consistent slowdown regarding internet speeds. Also to note, I let some moron use my computer and he installed a great deal of rather "deep installing" programs that may have perhaps embedded something strong, as whenever I attempt to use antivirus or computer utilities the computer will shutdown. Also of note, I think my browser decided to start using a proxy out of no where, I had to reset my connection to get it to work. I appreciate any help.



I run windows seven. But since linux seems to work nicely, I've been booting a live cd of that for my internet usage. Please let me know if any utilities I need to run can be run from linux as opposed to windows for simplicity reasons.

thanks,
john "turkish delight" mcmanahan
