My computer has been often seeming to have a series of spells where it seems to freeze up or become inactive when I click on certain websites.
I suspect that I have a virus or some form of spyware that is logging or monitoring my online activity.
I am using an Old Windows Inspiron 1501 Laptop Computer on Windows XP operating system..series 2 from 2002.
In the past I used to try various antivirus software programs.. that used to seem to work for me and remove various spyware and viruses..
but in more recent times... the Antivirus programs no longer seem to work on Windows XP...
so I have NOT as yet attempted to try and use any Antivirus.
I dont think I have any really valid protection on my computer like I once used to have..
and overall in general I think overall I am much more careful in what websites I visit and for quite a few years now.. I have avoided any real problems..
even without any protection or AV programs installed.
But Unfortunately in the last 2 to 3 months... I have found my computer running poorly and sometimes it does freeze up badly.
and becomes unusable.
I would appreciate any help and advice to try to solve the problem.
