Hello there,


I’ve just run a full scan on McAfee and it has come up with 0 issues and did not detect any viruses, spyware, or other threats (attached). Part of me wishes it had as my laptop is really not performing well at all.


I don’t know if it is to do with having too much on it but what is too much? Does too much protection actually impair the performance?


I seem to have more problems with my Thunderbird mail system and not sure that this isn’t affecting everything else. Not only do I not know, but I don’t know much about computers.


It just does seem so slow............................


I have thought about getting the laptop serviced, if such a thing is possible, but I thought I’d come here first, knowing that the answer might well be here within these four walls.


Any help is greatly appreciated, as are any thoughts.


Many thanks
