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.

No mention of Pale Moon or Panda? hmm.gif

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

PC Biatches be biatchen, yo.

Seriously considering a Mac for the next pc upgrade. The iPad Air 2/iPhone6+ have about won me over.

That said though ~ my Linux rigs will have to die first.

Those go without saying. chuckle.gif Panda free beat out most of the paid competitors this year in terms of virus detection and clobbers everyone on resource hogging.

Ccleaner was the one I was trying to remember

defrag takes a year

Heads up on Windows 7 though

if you're machine is running windows 7 , you have to allow all the updates
when promped

reason being , if you don't do the automatic updates , or shut off the machine while
updates are being installed

you risk a nasty glitch on STARTUP

you're machine will get stuck in a Start up loop and drive you crazy

there is a patch in the update for start up , miss that update or
shut down during the update ,,,

and ,,, F__K IT ,

I fixed 4 to 5 machines with that start up loop bullshit

2 of them with a fresh OS install ,, but yeah , get rid of MS Windows if you can .

Linux is cool ,
ubuntu as well

and disable internet explorer like JR said , that fucking thing can't find
a wifi signal for shit .

Mozilla Firefox 2.0 and download it ,

I have Ccleaner (and did the defrag ...for hours), I had adaware and malwarebytes installed and after I uninstalled the last two, my computer started behaving better. My Explorer does not work at all and what else is there but MS Windows? I also tried to download avast...yes..and then a year later...nothing. Meh.

Also, you tube videos stop and start continuously...and I believe I have the most updated version of Adobe Flash. Should I install some other type of media program?

Did you try hitmanpro and ADW cleaner?
If still dinked...
Scrap windows. Use linuxmint.com
I'd recommend Linux mint LXDE for any first time linux user. You'll never go back to windows.
Tons of online documentation in case you run into problems.
It's all free. No more viruses or glitches.
OR, try chrome as a browser. It comes with Flash installed.

I'll try hitmanpro...I think I tried ADW cleaner too but uninstalled it for some reason.

Why am I afraid to abandon MS Windows?

A lot of people are, but it's really unfounded. People fear change, it's natural. Linux mint comes as an ISO file, burn it to a CD or install via USB stick using the method in this video.

Should take around 15 - 20 min.
You'll have to set up your BIOS to boot from the stick or disk. At startup press DEL repeatedly to enter BIOS.
in the boot order select the USB drive, or disk you made as your 1st boot option.
Press F10 to save your selection and exit.
It should boot from the disk or thumb drive.
The Mint installer does the rest.

I have a suspicion that I don't have an Admin password on my computer, or would I just hit the 'cancel' button?

Admin? for what? Linux install or Windows? If Windows has no admin PW just hit continue.
