My computer barely comes on and if it does it takes several attempts to turn it off. Opening a program i.e word, excel etc takes 2-3 minutes. Opening IE takes several attempts and I have to jump start my modem several time a day (using bellsouth dsl). My computer is infected with Antivermins and others (trojans, spyware, highjackers).
I followed some advice of a co-worker and installed Active Virus Shield -- that tripled the problem. I is difficult sometimes to get my computer to come on. I also installed SmitFraudFix and followed the instructions in safe mode. No help.
I don't have money for a new computer or $300 to get this one fix (I'm not sure the computer is worth that much).
