I don't have espn, so I have to watch the bowl games on vipbox.com

my computer has been running slower and I don't know if it is related.

I had tried to close a pop up and it was blocked.  I then had a warning message that a malicious program was blocked that would try to remote access my computer.  This was a couple of weeks ago.  


Windows 8.1

I have malwarebytes full version, avast free, and AdBlock all running.

Neither Mbam nor avast has detected any viruses.


I must admit I have only had it for about four months and am not very familiar with it yet.  It could be as simple as doing a system clean up and deleting cookies.


I had also installed WinRaR in an attempt to transfer my Panasonic video files into something I could use, but it wouldn't work.  I haven't uninstalled it yet.


Thank you for your time.

The decreased preformance may be the result of all the antivirus programs you are running. Avast takes up a decent ammount of processing power while active, as well as MBAM.
