Internet slow & hard drive space is down

Microsoft Microsoft windows xp home edit...
March 31, 2010 at 04:00:51
Specs: Windows XP
I recently had to uninstall, and then reinstall my internet security (McAfee), and since then my internet has started running very slowly (it's not possible that we would have eaten up all our downloads yet, we've got 40gb, and are only 2 weeks into the month).

Also, the space on my C drive is gradually disappearing, but I haven't actively downloaded anything to the drive. It has gone down about 400mb in about 1-2 days. I have a D drive as well which doesn't appear to be affected.

What kind of virus would do this and how do I get rid of it?

Thanks,

"I recently had to uninstall, and then reinstall my internet security (McAfee), "

That could be your problem right there. Start by removing McAfee with their uninstaller from the website and try either Avast Free or AVG, see if that makes a difference. I think it will.

In my opinion thre is not any virus. simply try to use a previous restore point in your computer. also use CCleaner and see if it deletes junk files.
Anyway, i won't use Mcafee. it is quite heavy and as a result slow your PC down

I do not use Mcafee because of these reasons - system slowdowns.

Try Mil Shield or CCleaner, they are the best software that will remove PC & Internet slows as well as will free hard space.This is not a virus problem.

I prefer for my windows 7 x64 Mil Shield, it is much more advanced in the removing than Ccleaner.

Uninstall Mcafee. If your pc is old, don't use any Antivirus softwares.Or you can try Kaspersky Internet Security 2010.

By the way, you can choose other best security software here: Security Softwares
