    Hi folks, ime new to this, so please bear with me. We have Windows XP, and use AVG and Counterspy for protection. This last week end, something called spylocked got through the 'defences' and caused havoc by pretentnding to be a system alert. i eventually managed to get rid of this nasty little thing by downloading Superantispyware, but it has left the computer running very slowly, programmes freeze (not responding, like only part opening, then just 'hang', not closing when required. can you offer any help please? Unfotunately i am handier with a spanner or with animals than computers, so could you please consider that when answering!!

    thanks very much for your kind help,
