    get better av, kaspersky is good, also get another gig of ram, 1gig aint that much no more and ram is cheap, dont run without av if you arent confident about running without it!

    i use live one care - when it works its great as it has a firewall, antivirus and backup services, i run on 4gb but even then it slows down usually after a few months it seems then i end up reinstalling everything... also another thing ive noticed that slows done the pc is my ie7... i think it might be one of the toolbars i have installed... not sure yet but sometimes i look and its using more memory than photoshop!

    one care is completely useless, take this from someone who has been doing ppi for a little while now, its the easiest to get past, kaspersky is the best for finding them

    Kapersky or Avast anti virus work well and don't bog you computer down. Get anti spyware...spy catcher or windows defender(do not get windows livecare).

    I recommend NOD32, if you have a slower computer. I like Kaspersky too, but it usually slows my PC down considerably. NOD32 is programmed in ASM, which makes it very fast and leaves only a very light footprint. And it's detection rates are right up there with Kaspersky. In fact, some will say it's even better?

    You'll also need a decent software firewall, so check out ZoneAlarm or Look 'n' Stop.

    For anti-spyware, use SUPERAntiSpyware (free) and SpyBot. The Norton spyware program that comes with the Yahoo! Toolbar isn't half bad either, for a free program.

    Actually the 35 year expiry link is not working anymore.
