Hi, I am new just signed up. 


Truth is I do not know much about computer systems.  I have an ASUS Notebook PC, 4GB, HDD 500 GB, WIN 8 AMD Dual Core E1-2100 1.0 GHz. and it is only 2 months old.


I downloaded  Panda Cloud Antivirus and with it AVG 1 Click Maintenance about 3 weeks ago.  Computer was working fine for the time until yesterday it ask for maintenance of the AVG so I rain it and restarted computer.


Today the computer is running very very slow, using internet or not. Even to lower volume, the scale takes its time to show. 


I wish someone could help with this.


Thank you for your help,

You should not have more than one antivirus installed on your computer.  Uninstall one of these and then see if the problem persists.  If it does post a description of what is occurring.



IMPORTANT NOTE: Using more than one anti-virus program is not advisable. Why? The primary concern with doing so is due to Windows resource management and significant conflicts that can arise especially when they are running in real-time protection mode simultaneously. Even if one of them is disabled for use as a stand-alone on demand scanner, it can affect the other and cause conflicts. Anti-virus software components insert themselves deep into the operating systems core where they install kernel mode drivers that load at boot-up regardless of whether real-time protection is enabled or not. Thus, using multiple anti-virus solutions can result in kernel mode conflicts causing system instability, catastrophic crashes, slow performance and waste vital system resources. When actively running in the background while connected to the Internet, each anti-virus may try to update their definition databases at the same time. As the programs compete for resources required to download the necessary files this often can result in sluggish system performance or unresponsive behavior.
