I have the following on my computer: CWshredder, Hijack this, Sbybot Search and Destroy, Ad-aware SE Personal, and Stinger, and my computer is still running about 1/4 the speed it should. I have Roadrunner (cable modem) as a provider, and have 79% of my memory free (I only use my computer to surf the internet and play Diablo II), and as I type this I have to wait for the words to catch up with me. It's maddening. It never used to be this way. Oh, I also use the Goggle toolbar as a pop-up blocker. I can hardly even use my Hotmail account because it takes so long to load. I have tried recovering to a earlier date with no help. If someone can help me, it would be much appreciated. Also, my little Microsoft icon tells me there is updates to download, so I downloaded them. I couldn't even move on the internet afterwards, so I recovered to an earlier date just so I can surf a little. Thanks for any help guys!!
