Strange problem with my laptop.

The internet is slower than normal opening pages. Pdf files jam up the computer. There is a box in the midle of the desk top which leaves traces of the pages on before. I tried a systems restore and it stoped near the end remaind the same for ages so i turned the computer off. I have virus checked it, and there were no viruses although it said it couldn't open some files.

click here Download and run this program, if that doesn't help,
try a system file check Start/Run/type sfc /scannow (watch the space between sfc and /) you will need your XP CD

which virus checker did you use? recently used Ewido for the first time, on a friend's laptop after running Stinger, Spybot and a2. They found nothing, but Ewido found 4 different types of spyware.

I have Sophos anti-virus which is the one my university gives out free and recomends.
