It takes forever to load XP when turned on. Programs load very slowly and there is a long lag time between typing something and seeing it on screen. The lag is even there playing Solitaire!! All programs used eventually crash or hang.
I installed Safari about a month ago. It came with ITunes and QuickPlayer. I used Safari twice and forgot to delete. I do not use itunes or Quick time. The other night, I got a notice while online that Itunes needed to update. I clicked yes and within minutes had the dreaded blue screen. It took a good hour to even get the computer to start in safe Mode. I eventually went back to a restore point and then deleted all of the above. But since then, I am experiencing the above symptoms and sometimes the blue screen. It now flashes quickly and the screen goes to black and then the computer restarts - very slowly. Programs hang and crash constantly too.
I use AVG Free, SpyBot, Spyblaster, SuperSpy, Adaware & AVG Antispy. I do a scan every day using a different spy program.
I show no viruses and am up to date on Windows updates. This is not the way the computer acted when I did have viruses.
