Wow, where do I begin? Are you ready?

The only activity I use my computer for is for MySpace, Yahoo Messenger and Facebook for the games... And I come to notice that my computer was running exstreamly slow and bogging down while playing the games.

I ran CCleaner, Malwarebytes scanner as well as my Eset just to find that it was of no help.

So I was told that having Malwarebytes and my full Eset antivirus security with malware scanner clashed and I needed to remove the Malwarebyes program.

But still no good.

So to make a long story short, I thought to burn all my pictures, audio books etc onto disk and redo the whole Windows Vista. So I did and it left a windows.old file as well which was taking up a lot of room.

So I deleted it.

But now, when I go and installed my Sprint wirelss interent "works" but then I go to install Eset it will freeze up and then my internet wont even sign back on again, to where I have to reinstall it.

Also, here is a kicker... I lost RAM. When I first got this I had 2 GB ram, to where now when I open up operating system, it only shows 1918 MB.

And even when I open up the Control panel and see what is all installed on the computer (as when usually there is always something in there installed) there is nothing, till I installed my interent program.

What happened? What went wrong? I even checked online and it stated that I could remove the windows.old file if I had no intentions on going back to using it again.

I don't know what to do, so if you could please help me?

Thank You!

Flying solo :)
