    My computer was running at a slow crawl despite avg, spybot, threatfire and whatever else i had, so I was looking up what the programs running were to find ones i could safely shut down and found this site.

    One program seemed to be a possible virus, so i looked at the virus section and it said load avira, load malbywares or whatever and superantispyware, which i did,(uninstalling the other stuff) it found about three things and one trojan so once it had cleaned my system and i deleted one more thing of the list from when i was playing with web design, then my computer loaded maxthon which i now use in just 2 seconds compared to the nearly minute and a half with firefox.

    So this site is great! already helped enormously.

    advanced system care

    Thank you for the tip, is it the same as ccleaner? better or different?
    I do have C cleaner on my computer. Should I load this as well?

    Thank you for taking the time to answer!
