Hi All,


A few days ago my computer slowed right down while starting up and pretty much ground to a halt.


I have since ran a virus scan in safe mode, search and destroyed FREQUENTLY reccurring spyware, and ran a chkdsk.


The computer itself is certainly running better, but now any time I play a video or music file, its stops and starts perpetually, preventing smooth playback, which is incredibly frustrating!


Im comfortable when using computers but a novice in relation their workings - could anyone give me some advice in relation to what may be the problem with my compuuter? and how I could go about resolving the problems?

Regards

It's possible that you haven't removed all remnants of the spywares you said you found. You should run a few more scans, this time add a few different scan programs to your arsenal.

What are all the programs you use to scan for viruses, trojans, malware, etc,?

Thanks for the quick reply Walkman.

I use Norton to scan for viruses, which comes up clean, Spybot and Ad-Aware SE for spyware.

Any programs that you could recommend?

I use what you have, for the most part. Check out the link below. It has a list of many freeware programs, which includes virus scanners and such.

Also, using the same programs that you already have, run the scans again, but this time in normal mode, and not safe mode.
