    Hi, i am not entirely sure about what happened. I tried to download a bit-torrent and it locked up my computer. The windows security center would not go away and the computer had slowed to a crawl. After rebooting i did not see any changes. I could not keep the task manager open, could not open the add/remove programs manager, and i could not open my AVG free virus protection software. Well, after uninstalling AVG, everything else went back to normal. EXCEPT the computer is still running sluggishly. I tried to reinstall AVG, but it takes forever! With my dual core processor and 2 gigs of RAM i should not be running this slow! Does anyone know how i can fix this problem?
