I am so happy to have found a way to fix this thing. I can literally take a shower waiting for my emails to load. (over 20 minutes yesterday). I am a 60 yo male who knows NOTHING about the workings of a computer. I bought this thing hoping to use this in my business( life insurance) but am finally realizing that I need to take some classes. My kid thinks he knows everything about computers (imagine that!) but it seems to run slower everytime he gets off. I don't use the internet much but when I do it just gets slower and slower. Any help I get will be VERY APPRECIATED.


Mod Edit: Edited to fix tags. ~tg

Hi mewsdad,

Sorry to hear of your computer trouble, hope it gets fixed up quick!
It's ironic to hear of your problems with your kid; for me it's my mother that gives me problems! :thumbsup:

It is true that sons and daughters may know a little more about computers than do their parents, but sometimes they lack the maturity to be extremely cautious about what and from where they download files. Your first step should be to throroughly scan your computer with your resident anti-virus, and regularly use several (many of these are free) anti-spyware applications as well.
Welcome to BC!
