Sorry I didn't get back sooner, I had an er visit and subsequent admission for a few days. My PC is just slow, it takes about a min and a half from power on to welcome screen, I had two diff anti malware/spyware/virus programs and I got conflicting answers, Iolo seemed to work, it just told me 7 particular programs were slowing me down, but I didn't know what was safe to delete/keep so I came here. I have Infinity cable/internet so it gave me McAfee, but I don't really like it.
I do basic things like clean 'net history, cookies, disk cleanup pretty well, but there's probably better ways to do diagnose and clean this thing.
I don't have a lot, (well, define a lot) of dl'd videos on my HD that I'm burning to dvd r, and not sure if doing that right, as I can't see them on dvd player with tv, just dvd on pc. It tells me I have low memory at times, I need to close programs, that sort of thing. I use AOL for email, FF for browsing as I heard IE was virus ridden.
I don't game on this as I want a desktop for that, so I'm seriously confused as to how to get laptop working faster. As I said above, I get low memory showing, and it just takes forever. Youtube works well, no freezing there, except occasionally.
IF it can be helped, can you LMK what 'anti' everything programs to use to keep me running better? I had the FBI money virus late last year too, so I'm paranoid as what to put on it now.
I apologize for the rambling, I can't afford to lose access to the laptop through some mistake I made as I've got classes starting mid Aug, need this for a little while longer.
