Hey guys, i am new here and come to you guys for help, if you don't mind :whistling: . Lately, i have desided to try and clean up my computer and get rid of stuff that isn't needed on here. Well, i was recommended to try out this anti-virus program called AVG. So, i gave it a shot, and it found like 5000 some viruses/trojans on my computer, and it deleted a majority of them, but not all. Well, once i did that, i looked around through my files and folders and such to try and delete stuff not needed on here. I do not know where i should begin with to start looking to start getting stuff off here thats not needed and taking up room and slowing my computer down. Anyhelp would be extremely appreciated. O' yea, anyone have any good programs to download to help and keep my computer free of viruses/trojans and such. Right now, i currently am running Zone Labs Security Firewall/ Virus/Trojan scanner ( don't know if anyone has heard of it or not), and i just got rid of the AVG program, because it really wasn't helping me much. Sorry for the long post, but i really need help. Thanks again guys
