HELP. my computer is an absolute mess. it takes forever to start up. i have media center but can't listen to music or watch videos because the computer is so slow that the sound skips. i ran superantispyware and avg and that did not help one bit. i removed norton prior to installing avg and removed windows defender (was told windows defender is spyware?) it seems as though it was after playing a game on facebook that my computer slowed down significantly. when i open task manager i end up with 5 little green boxes in the bottom right hand corner of computer screen. superantispyware icons showed up 4 times at the bottom right hand corner, i guess they are opening multiple times?. i checked msconfig and it doesn't appear as though i have anything unusual running at start up. could installing itunes and then removing it and then reinstalling it cause problems? I followed instructions that i found online, used windows cleanup, i think that was what it was called, and removed all the necessary components (Bonjour, etc.) I do my banking online and installed a program called Rapport console, it is supposed to help so that key strokes can't be logged? I have disabled it to see if that made a difference (possible conflict with firewall )and it did not. i'm using avg for antivirus and windows firewall.
