computer slow

My computer is new, but it is very slow on the internet. I have had problem with viruses in the past. Is there any way of finding out why it's slow?

I use AVG 7 anti-virus software by Grisoft, which is available free for personal use. If you have a broadband connection, I advise you to use the auto update function to update your Anti Virus every day. click here

Some people and companies want to see what you do on the internet, and monitor your habits, and will deposit software on your PC without your permission to do this. Install SpywareBlaster software which is free to protect your computer, and install SpyBot Search and Destroy and Adaware to scan for spyware and remove it. All programs have the facility to check for updates to their databases and should be updated regularly.

Also delete all your temporary internet files - internet explorer - tools options

this should help

georgemac, thanks. I have adaware and spybot which I run and update regularly. I also have nortons. Still the machine is slower than it should be.
