Help, my computer is rebelling

Loading anything is so slow, it's painful. I don't have a real time anti virus program - is this the problem?

clear cookies
shut down machine

start it back up then check for updates and install those

if using windows XP

download windows TCPVIEW
open it and check for established connections that do not say Local Host and close those

I know what to do, but the creeping virus' keep stopping me doing what I want to do.



It's almost feels that I am being controlled...my freedom to surf the Web is denied.

Thank you, you most beautiful people (inside) - miraculously my puter is behaving.

Download the following...

1. ccleaner
Install, close your browsers and run it. Will clear out a lot of junk from your browsers and junk files. Opt out of installing Chrome during install.
After that go to Tools>Startup and have a look at whats starting with Windows. Anything you don't need, click on, right click and hit DISABLE.
You can always re enable if you get too crazy with it. Or you can even post what's running at startup and I'll tell you what to get rid of.

2. Malwarebytes
Install and run. Make sure you don't try the full version trial when installing. The free one is fine. Run it.

3. hitmanpro
Don't install it, just do a one time run, it will find and kill the nasties the others left.

4. adwcleaner
Run this last. Will reset your browser(s) back to original settings. This will reboot your computer.

5. Go to your control panel>Uninstall a Program and uninstall anything you don't use. Get rid of all the old crap.

6. defraggler
Install and run. It will take an hour or two.
Defraggler speeds up your PC by assembling fragmented files on your machine and organizing them more efficiently.

If you follow this, you should notice quite a difference.

One thing, Internet exploder is a dangerous browser. Microsoft is phasing it out as it's so messed up, they can't even fix it, though they've tried for years.
Get Firefox or Chrome for a browser.
Chrome reports everything back to Google, just a headsup. FF is much more secure.

Crikey, JR ~ the dude could install Lubuntu in 15 minutes and never even have to think about all that shit ever again. chuckle.gif

I know, but I've given up on that as a reply as it frightens people chuckle.gif
They would rather have a bloated spybox that runs like shit as opposed to a snappy screaming computer.
And besides it doesn't have Internet exploder, and I understand that as I'm still waiting for notepad to be ported to Linux, then I'll switch.

An ascii editor? gedit works fine. rofl.gif

Seriously, I'm left slack jawed by Linux reluctance these days. There's no need to suffer under the dominion of Micro$oft.

Notepad was a joke, gedit is way better, and little do people realize they can get a hell of a lot of Windows programs to run on WINE.
Unless you're running Adobe Creative Suite, AutoCad, or a high end DAW like ProTools or Nuendo, most people have no business running windows.

Oh, I agree. Ya' can dual boot so easily if you just have-to-have-Windoze.

I support quite a few folks' installations and I've got all but one on Linux Mint. Basically, I refuse to dick with any Windows install. I just shove Mint on the rig and tell them to try it. Hell, it looks just like what they are used to and most of them only use the internet anyway. It's a no-brainer.

Then...lo and behold, they realize just how much they hate Windoze and never boot to it again. Then on an upgrade I lose it for them. chuckle.gif
