    I tend to download Lavasoft's Ad Aware (the free version is sufficient) to get rid of malware.

    Then I go to the disk cleanup application in Vista which scans the computer and gives some tips to what you can do.

    These are easy tips which will improve the computer's speed, and only take you 30 minutes of work.

    I use tuneup utilities 2010, first run "Gain disc space" which removes temp files, caches, recycle bin, then run "Clean registry" which would remove invalid or registry entries that are no longer in use. > and finally defragment registry. My Pc starts working fine again. Oh but that is when you are sure that you dont have any virus on your pc. I use kaspersky internet security so no issues with viruses. big_smile

    If your computer allows you to perform maintenance. do a disk clean and a Defrag. I also use AVG a free virus protection.

    CCleaner is a free utility that does a great job cleaning up the registe, temporary files, memory, internet history... pretty much everything you should to do a good maintenance of your computer.
