Hello, I'm hopinng someone might be able to give me some advice on what to do. I recently let my trend micro and spy sweeper expire, now i run AVG free. Since i quit using TM and SS my computer has been running like its 100 years old. It is a Dell Inspiron 9300, Intel pentium M processor 1.60GHz, 512mb RAM, running MS windows XP SP3. My pop-up blocker wil be at around 300 blocked in less than a day. Basically i'm wondering what i can do to diagnose the problem or atleast get an idea of whats going on. I know there are some scanning tools out there but i'm not really sure on what to use. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.
