|I was away recently and lent my Laptop to my girlfriend and she installed a couple of programs like open office and Microsoft outlook. She had to pay for open office so she may have got it from a shifty website because there were a few viruses on it when I got back. Also a deodorant can fell on the keyboard and broke the right ALT and WINDOWS keys off.|
I didn't think it was too bad I updated Norton and ran it to get rid of the viruses and the computer was still going really slow. I needed to do a format anyway so I did - Computer was still slow. Then I re-formatted all of my hard drives ran a virus scan on them and defragmented all of them and it is still slow.
I'm thinking the can might have smashed something inside the laptop it was making a weird noise earlier.
Any help would be great - I don't want to have to pay to get it fixed so i'd rather have a good crack at doing it myself. I'm gonna check if its under warranty still tomorrow.
