Hello,

 

Since some weeks, my PC is very slow not only when starting but also when simply running.

Sometimes it take some seconds when right clicking before receiveing a contextual menu.

 

OS is Wondows XP

Antivirus is McAfee which is run 3 or 4 times a week.

Every week end, I run Malware anti malware.

 

I suspected a lack of disk space on C: but there is more than 10%.

 

Can anybody tell me what to do ?

 

Thanks beforehand.

Not really.

Since weeks, I got error messages sent by McAfee such as 'McAfee found error and cannot continue'.

I checked automatic updates but today for instance, I had to run Mcafee twice to analyze my PC.

There are problems but most important is McAfee.You have no protection.So reinstall or change antivirus.I am not here to judge.Only for help.

I'll reinstall McAfee this evening and let you know.

I'll also remove glary but please give me which other products I could use, such as Ccleaner for instance.
I need your advice just to be sure I don't use a "problematic" software.
