June 2006 built a pc for a relative and loaded it up with trial 14 day security suite. and gave advice on security and regular defrag etc even put a copy of reg mechanic & ccleaner on it.
well its just grinded to a stop it had got slower and slower and infested with adware/spyware.
was never defraged never run ccleaner never got any security antivirus or antispyware. took all afternoon for jk mydefrag to defrag the harddrive, when I ran superantispyware was on 1804 and still counting when I left and thats after clearing cookies with ccleaner, going back later in the week to continue to see if I can fix without a reformat. Anyone else seen similar people
it's a regular occurrence. Don't be fooled into thinking that the average forum member's attitude to computer security and housekeeping is indicative of what goes on in the general computer-using population, because it isn't.
