    Default My home computer is running S...L...O...W It needs a "tune up" I guess?!

    Is there someone or a company or SOMETHING that can help me get my home computer back running normal? With two kids and a wife and full time jobs between us and my wife in college getting her 2nd Masters, I need someone to come to my house to fix it or whatever. I just don't have the time to take it anywhere.

    Does anyone know someone that can help me out?

    Defragment the harddrive. Run Adaware. Clear your cookies.

    That' be a very good start. Also run a scan to make sure you don't have any viruses eating up your resources. Also check your background processes.

    Also go to download.com and get ccleaner. It cleans up a lot of junk. Also doesn't hurt if you have windows defender on your PC. What kind of Virus Protection do you have??? If you don't have AVG, try it. I like it a lot better than Norton or Mcafee.

    The only thing I hate about AVG is that you can't control when it scans. It just scans every time you boot up, and you can't schedule anything.

    I just run the scans manually. You can disable it from scanning on it's own.

    Buy a broadband router (if you don't already have one) and use that as your firewall.
    And thats how you get ants!
