  1. Whist pretending to know about all this stuff, sometimes you need the real experts.
    I've got more system "tools" than I could possibly need, and now I don't know what works, what doesn't and whats just bad.
    Any help is gratefully recieved.
    Hijackthis log file attached.
    Thanks

    I don't think you will ever fully quicken it up with Panda Global Protection 2009
    This program has been reported to slow down any average computer

    Usually I recommend simple free Antivirus softwares like: Avast or Avira

    Hey thanks.
    Things certainly get faster without Panda.
    Would you recommend an additional firewall with Avast?
    Cheers

    Not really

    Windows Firewall already stops anything coming in
    You may just need to learn to browse safely

    Many users use Zone Alarm if you're overly concerned
