Thanks ahead of time for your time.
My browser takes 25 seconds to open a page, hangs at every click, the CPU goes up to 100%, etc. I've done every virus check known to man and it never came up with a thing. I reinstalled IE. This same stuff happens on Firefox, also. I chalk a lot of it up to the fact I have an old, crappy computer. I'm pathological about keeping things off it. I use AVG which I'm thinking sucks at this point.
I ran a virus scan at ESET.com and it came up with a warning in my Outlook.dbx, and said it can't clean it. I haven't used Outlook in about 6 years. I don't even know where it is, I forgot all about it. I have a few hundred emails stored there, as far as I saw/knew none were infected. I scanned everything before I kept it. This never came up as a positive in all the kazillions of scans and Whatnots I have done.
My question is....could this be a false positive? Does this mean there's "an" email in that whole pile that has a virus? How do I get rid of this thing? Is it OK to go pull up Outlook and just delete all the mail or does that not help the issue?
Ok I guess that was more like 43 questions...
I am thisclose to going and getting a new computer (I want my XP tho, [bleep]) so I'm really paranoid now that I'll just slop a virus over to a new one if I copy things over.
Remember They said computers were going to make our lives easier? Hah.
Thank you much for your help
