HELP PLEASE!!! My computer has suddenly slowed down - I mean REALLY slowed down. I am on broadband (not sure what speed) and everything appears to be working OK - it's just very SLOW. Any (simple) ideas how I can jig things along a bit!

You could also try Start>Settings>Network Connections>right click on your network connection>Repair.

Many thanks for that. I have installed Malawarebytes and it found 5 viruses!!! I have deleted them and rebooted. Prior to doing that I had a notice come up which said "resident shield alert" - "the virus vault has reached the maximum file count limit" Do you know how I empty the virus vault?
