Computer running ridiculously slow

  les2021 13:10 16 Sep 2006

Please can anyone help. I have run C Cleaner and deleted lots of things. Run start up inspector. Tried to run Trend Micro the free anti virus programme but it will not run. It sticks on page 2. My machine is a 2.79 and was never slow before. I have Norton Security 2006 installed and updated. Help please. I am a silver surfer well no I am worse than that as I am 86. Please treat me gently in simple language.

Try running this and see if any problems come up:

Also, Norton (or any other anti-virus) does not like to work alongside another anti-virus application.

Personally I would ditch Norton altogether and opt for a free anti-virus such as Avast or AVG.
