My Vista recently crashed, so I pulled out the good ole Windows XP. I haven't had this computer up and running in a year, so I was very surprised when it took forever to turn on. The first thing I did was update the AVG free (it hadn't been updated since April 2010) and updated my Malwarebytes. When I went to get on Internet Explorer, it took about 20 minutes to load the homepage. There is a horrible lag in typing. My husband attempted to get on ebay, and the first thing it did was ask for a debit card and pin number. Instantly I knew we had a virus on our hands. I shut down and pulled up the computer in safe mode, ran malwarebytes and my AVG scanner, but they found no malicious items. Pulled up the control panel (took over a minute for that to come up) and did the defrag with no improvement. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, I'm not sure where to go from here. Thank you!
