My computer has become very slow. Recently because of some virus attack, I had to get windows reinstalled. I am using a broadband connection. I have tried to run some of the tools available on the net but it has not helped. Is there any software available which is free that can be run and help me in sorting out this problem. AVINASH

Slow in what ways? In downloading and uploading, surfing the net, or running applications?

Have you updated the Windows yet? I suggest you start with Internet Explorer. Did you defragment the drive after you installed Windows? That helps speed operations up.

You can get a program called Belarc Advisor and post the report on this thread to tell us about your system performance.
