I have wireless internet, but lately I've been trying to access my internet and it won't work unless my computer is right next to the modem. I don't know how to fix this, because I noticed that my packets sent is now up to more than 100 more packets sent than received. I have tried to reset the modem and the router, which isn't doing anything. I don't know if a virus I had may be linked to this problem. Unfortunately, I don't know what virus it was because when I do a virus scan, Panda does not tell you what virus it detected and neutralized, just that it did. I noticed this virus after my mom used my computer to access Pogo.com I don't know if this site attracts viruses or not, but I noticed that after she used my computer, there was something on my desktop that was never there before (I don't remember what it was called), but ever since then my computer has been going slow and the internet has been messing up on me. Does anyone know what's wrong with my computer and/or what I can do to fix it, without bringing it somewhere and paying for someone else to fix it?
One other question I have is, does anyone know how to clean the inside of a laptop? I've been told before that every once in a while, you should unscrew the bottom of the computer and clean out the inside to keep it running properly. First of all, I don't even know if it's true. Secondly, if it is, I don't know how to do this without possibly wrecking my computer, which I will not risk.
If anyone can help me with any of my problems, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!Mod Edit: Helped to resize font size.
