In regards to the internet, I use Safari for Windows. Once again, at-first-glance, some may think this is a problem but I also have Chrome, Firefox and IE - all of which perform at the same visible speed.
I do not download any dangerous programs like those from P2P websites and I am a low-intermediate level PC user who is very cautious with what I do with the computer.
Over the past few months, I have turned to programs that will "help" my computer by "optimizing its RAM" ... I found out the hard way this was all nonsense. If it helps, some of the programs I've used were Advanced SystemCare 3, eboostr, and Free Ram XP Pro - as well as Download Accelerator Pro (which did seem to triple my download speed) and a Video Accelerator that came bundled with DAP.
I am aware of how to create and upload my HijackThis Logfile if that should be necessary.
Once again, thank you very much.
