How much RAM do you have?
Go to start>settings>control panel>click on system
(If you cant see system,click on classic view on the left side)
Then tell me how much is it under the "Computer:" category
also,might as well include the processor (just for additional info)
its just right before the RAM then tell us how many GHz is it

Every time i do a spyware/virus scan my computer SLOWS DOWN,Why is this

This is normal as for almost every Anti-Virus product because most probably,it uses lots of memory
to find malware so you would really have to wait till the scanning is done
I also experience this in 2006

But if you don't want that,Try Nod32 another Anti-Virus product
Reviews says Its fast scaning,easy,uses less resources

Then most probably,you can now run programs running in background while its scanning in thesame time


Trendmicro pc-cillin internet security 2007

I have heard few reports that 2007 slows down a bit of your computer
Im still sticking with 2006 just to make sure :thumbsup:

No,I cannot download anything because of an IE7 error

What does the error message say?

Motherboard: MSI P35 Neo-F (Socket 775 LGA) Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40 Ghz Kentsfield Chipset: Intel P35 Graphics Card: Nvidia Geforce GT 440 Memory: 2x 2GB DDR2 800 RAM Storage: 1x IDE 80GB, 1x SATA II 500 GB, 1x External 500GB HD Power Supply: 600W Power supply Monitor: Dual screen set-up Casing: Mini-ATX Fan(s): 1x 80mm silent fan OS: Windows XP SP3

Have you tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"?

The Windows operating system protects files when they are being accessed by an application or a program. Malware writers create programs that can insert itself and hide in these protected areas when the files are being used. Using Safe Mode reduces the number of modules requesting files to only the essentials to make your computer functional. This in turn reduces the number of hiding places for malware, making it easier to find and delete the offending files. Using your anti-virus and anti-malware tools, in Safe Mode also speeds up the scanning process.
