Hi i'm a newbie ;)
I've joined many forum's tryin to get help but not had any luck, so finger's crossed someone on here might be able to help.
Ok sorry if this turn's into an essay but but i want to make it simple for any advice!!
I brought this computer off someone a few month's ago, it was almost new when i got it off them so it DID run like a dream.
I installed AD Aware and Spyware SD which i did run almost everyday, the last few week's my pc has been running really, really slow, i've had load's of pop up's (i've never had any before)
I tried running my spyware and ad aware programe's but for some reason they no longer will run, i get an error saying window's has encountered an error and need's to close.
I've uninstalled them seein as they no longer work so i don't have any spyware programe now.
Also the other day i was browsin the net and i again got the error (windows error, window's need's to shut)
I got the grey box where it give's you the option to send an error report, this i did and was then advised to go to window's live safety centre, whre i then did a free virus scan, it found 1 virus and approx 5000 infected file's.
It then gave me the option to fix these problem's but that won't work either, it just say's not responding.
I've tried the scan several time's but never get no luck.
I've not this pc long and it dosen't have any virus protection on it, i have been tryin to get some but was'nt sure which to get, i'm assuming it's to late now tho and i have a virus? i really hope someone can help before my almost new pc die's :sad:
I really am new to pc's and the internet so if ya can help please explain in dumb people's language :o
The reason i haven't tried to fix this problem by myself is cos i've already broke 4 (yes 4) tower's tryin to sort problem's out by myself cos i hate askin for help but this time i'm bein extra careful.
Sorry again for the essay and the terrible spelling!!!
Thank's for any help in advance, it really is very much appreciated :cheesy:
