I have recently got a new broadband connection so I thought that I do some upgrading. I went and bought a new 320 GIG hard drive and installed XP on it. I installed my and virus and spyware programs (both AVG and ad adware) I also have a firewall (AVG). All of the programs are registered and updated but I still get virus and my internet runs extremely slow. The reason why I use AVG for internet security is because i have never had a problem with them.

Is it only while surfing the net that the computer is slow or do you have similar problems with other applications as well.

When you say that you still have viruses, how did you determine that? Do you find any in your malware scannings or do you deduce that you have malware because of the slowness in surfing.

Yeah my applications run slow too. When I run a virus scan i get about 20 viruses. When I restart my computer I get messages telling me tha I still have viruses. Is there any other programs I could get to get rid of this?

I think I have a trojan because The virus keeps on downloading by itself.
