Having problems since installing Virgin's PC Guard, the internet has slowed right down. Not too bad when the Guard is switched off which is not satisfactory. Any idea's

I think you've answered your own question - uninstall Virgin's PC Guard again.

Install your own "free" software, for example:

Firewall - Zone Alarm
AntiVirus - Avast or AVG
Antispyware - Spyware Blaster

and also Malwarebytes.

I uninstalled PC Guard after the supplier swapped to Kaspersky - it got to the point I had to reboot every 20 minutes! Now installed Avira free and laptop is running much quicker and starting up quicker too.
