Very slow computer

  Molly_Don 15:08 15 Apr 2009

Can anyone advise me how to do a log to be checked, my computer is very slow, most pages keep hanging, I've run superantispyware / CC / kaspersky virus scan,I'm sure there's crap on here that I'm not aware of

Thanks if anyone can help

Try.Run type in cmd.Command prompt will open type in ipconfig /flushdns [leave a little space between ipconfig and forward slash or it will not work] Ok.It should tell you DNS Cache has been flushed ,if so reboot your computer and see if it is running any better.Have you downloaded the latest Microsoft updates.

Hi buteman

I've done what you said and just updated windows latest updates, but most web pages are just hanging including this one

Are you running IE7 or 8 or Firefox ( latest ?) ? XP or Vista ? Memory ? etc.. Also try this click here it is very good..

I'm running IE7 - XP I don't know how to check for the memory, re the link you gace above, I clicked on it and got this click here I'm not sure what to do.

Download it and then run it ! It will check for nasties that may be hidden away on your pc ! It's an anti spyware program. To see what memory your pc has, go to Control Panel, System, General..the ram will be shown in the dialog box.

Hi iscanut

I've clicked download, I have to register 1st to get the download, is that correct?

  iscanut 13:34 16 Apr 2009

I don't remember registering, but maybe I did although the version I have is free, so don't pay for anything !

Thx, when I clicked on download, this is what I get click here=

I'm not happy about registering on websites I'm not familiar with (I mean no offence to you offering the link)

OK it's up to you. I think quite a few of us on these forums use Malwarebytes.

There's something I'm not doing right because it's asking me for a fee
