Have had major problems as of late, had to do a system recovery, eventually got up and running again, got a virus of some sort and did the avg virus scan and it showed up 576 viruses, removed them, but everything is just so slow, pages wont load for me, when they they do i'm only on for a few minutes before i get 'page expired' etc, when i open up email i always get disconnected, as soon as i connect again it gives me a few minutes to browse, then its either no pages again or i get disconnected, would appreciated any help if i manage to get this posted , running xp and have broadband!

have you done a disc cleanup and de-frag.Also how did you get so many viruses have you got a good firewall and spywareblaster

I think that you must have meant 576 infected files, not viruses. Anyway follow stalion's advice and post back if things are still not right.

VoG yes sorry i did mean 576 infected, stallion i am running the scan at the moment and it has speeded up considerably already, it has found a 'backdoor virus.rbot,gen' in timeupdate.exe and winupdate.exe if any of you are any the wiser, i will try the defrag as well!

Thanks much appreciated
