    Hi.

    I don't know if it's the right thread to post this.

    I've got a Lenovo G575, I had it for a while now. About a month and a half ago, I downloaded Skype, and as soon time went on, my laptop (internet, to be more accurate) was becoming more and more slower, but later I found out that Skype was the problem, so I turned it off entirely; when I did, it was much, much faster, and this happened about a week and a half ago (I thought I might as well mention this). But now, new issues come along.

    3 or 4 days ago, it started to lag quite a bit. 2 days ago, I cleaned out the cliche and defragged it, and it didn't help. When I did a scan on my computer today, it stated that I had downloaded an anti-virus program, but I already had an anti-virus program active for several months, and I don't remember downloading anything like an anti-virus program, well, I did download a cleaner for some reason. I deleted some files and some apps (like Skype), but that didn't work. I don't know what's going on, if anyone could help, it would be very much appreciated.

    Oh, on a unrelated note, my clock has been acting funny, like missing 2 to 3 hours every few days.

    Sorry, I don't know a lot about the internet I'm using, since I'm a college student and I'm using the on campus router.

    Also, I don't know what kind of specs you want, but I'll post anything that you need to know.

    Edit: I found a way to get the information from the campus router, but I would like to know what you're looking for would help.

    You need to talk to who is in charge of the internet at your school. And tell them your problem. They might be able to help you. It might be password protected. If it is they should give you the password.

    Right-click COMPUTER, then click Properties.

    Advise what's listed in:

    That'll provide us with the complete Windows version, the processor type and speed, and the amount of RAM.
