Hi Friends:

 

My wife's computer runs or should I say "walks" on Vista.....

If I don't run CCleaner, ATF Cleaner and the cleaning tools in Revo Uninstaller it slows down to a crawl, locks up, etc. I have to run these tools after a short session on the internet.....Malwarebytes, Superantispyware and AVG have found nothing,,,,even on Safe Mode.

 

Your wisdom would be appreciated,
