I am not sure this is the correct place to post this.  I keep my computer hard drive cleaned up really good.  I defrag regular, I run Spybot and Malware regularly, I clear my temporary files regularly, I'm always checking my control panel for unwanted installed programs, I always install thing customly, i.e., no added toolbars, etc.  I go to msconfig and only run what I need all the time.  I am very very picky about tool bars, extensions, add-ons, etc., again, only using what I absolutely need.  I use DuckDuckGo for my search engine, I use Firefox, I do run Adblock, and donttrackme, and lastpass and dropbox.  I have always had all my firewalls and virus programs turned off as it seems to interfer with just about every program I run.  I really have not had any problems otherwise, since you-all helped me get rid of misdirected pages a few years back. 

 

But yet, with all of this, my computer seems to run slower and slower every day.  I am always waiting for the hang-up and then it eventually goes to the site. 

 

Please help!   :(

No ideas?  Anyone?  Maybe I DO have it posted in the wrong area.

You should post in Malware Removal Forum, not running Firewall or AV you likely picked up something. Things are more sneaky these days.
Also what amount of space is on hard drives, and how much memory do you have? These are also factors as well.

Kind Regards

Just to add to this post, Have you tried installing Microsoft Security Essentials. Its free and I've not had any issues with it for the past 3/4 years.
If it picks up anything that will mean theres something bad on your PC.

Plus how long have you had the machine, They can gain some clutter that slows it down after a while and a simple clean can help it out.
Even something as simple as clearing your Browsers Cache!

Hope this Helps!

Thanks,
Thomas Edwards

Thanks for the suggestions.  I will check on these things and get back on here.  At the moment, I have a HD crashing on another computer that I need to back up while I can which now takes priority.
