My system has been running slowly. I restarted it today and it took a long while to recover, when it came back up there was an error msg. about an .exe program that could not run and windows is shutting it down.
I then ran an avg free update and I received a message from the program that said there was something wrong and I should re-instal it. So I tried this and during the installation process I get a message that says there was an error and it can not complete.
Can you please help me determine if this is a problem with spyware/virus or if its a system problem. Thanks a million!
