    My computer just recently started working very slow and taking several minutes to load pages and in the last 18 hours has only run 57% of my computer scan with eset nod32. I'm assuming its a virus from downloaded programs. Please help.. :mad:

    Try Microsoft Security Essentials. It's free, small footprint and very good in catching viruses and malwares.

    I didn't see anyhting that was stating it or showing it found any malware. After running the CD it seemed to have stopped and I rebooted with everything running correct and up to speed like it was before. I did another scan with the eset nod32 and everthing seems good to go..
