    I have a 32 bit operating system with windows 7 ultimate. I cannot afford to to change to 64 bit at this time. Google chrome is slowing down my desktop pc. I don't know what is best web browser or which free antivirus to use. Almost everyone I ask has a different answer to my questions. Oh and by the way, I have two hard drives. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Sunshine1955,

    Try running Disk cleanup.

    http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/818-disk-cleanup-open-use.html

    Also:

    Many members here recommend Microsoft Security Essentials or Avast. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5201 or http://www.avast.com/en-us/index both are free. ONLY USE ONE Anti-Virus program, having more than one will cause problems!

    In conjunction with either of them use both of the following and run them at least once a week.
    Malwarebytes
    http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam-download.php
    Superantispyware
    http://www.superantispyware.com/down...NTISPYWAREFREE

    Make sure to update their definition files during the install process.
    Make sure to uncheck and decline to install any extras, such as toolbars and homepages, they may offer.
    Make sure to uncheck or decline to use the "Pro" or "Trial" version, if it's offered.
    After they're installed and updated, restart the computer.
    Run a quick scan with each one.
    After each quick scan is finished, select and remove EVERYTHING that was found.
