pc on go-slow after defragmenting and disc scan

  Lavenham 19:52 21 Jun 2003

My pc has really slowed down now. It was having a few minor problems due i believe to my son playing games or downloading various bits and pieces although he denies this. It has now emptied the toolbar with the viruscan internet connection zip file icons etc. is. The only thing in there is the clock and winzip icons. When i start up again everything is there for a while but then disappears. Any ideas i can try to get the speed back. I tried to install internet explorer 6 from freedisc but nothing would work.

Have you run the virus checker, also have you checked for any other spyware he has likely downloaded. Try this program: click here
