    hi
    i posted yesterday about my computer running really slow because of a few processes using alot of memory and cpu. i thought it was virus activity so i ran the scan for viruses and it came back saying that it found a few viruses so i deleted them and restarted my computer but i still have the same problem. i know of one way to fix this problem but its the drastic way and i dont really want to resort to that measure. any help would be appreciated
    thanks

    Hi Charbone 69 If you havent tried some spyware removal go here

    http://forums.techguy.org/t110854.html

    Download SpyBot Search and Destroy and Ad-Aware Se Setup and Update both doing a scan and get rid of all they find

    Do a scan with Houscall and Panda as well and let us know if things work better
