Problems with my system/viruses,etc.
Posted on 2004-08-09
I have had long-standing problems relating to my pc ever since I upgraded from windows 98 to windows 2000 advanced server. However, since then I have formatted my hard drive twice and installed w2k server.
1) My usb doesn't work despite having loaded sp4, ad-aware, norton's anti-virus, usb drivers, and a new usb adapter
2) My pc is running very slowly having found several viruses such as rbot and spybot. I ran ad-aware and norton 7.6 but it still runs so slowly. Should I try another anti-virus program? Should I format yet again?
3) I tried to download my chipset drivers, sis620/5595, but am not sure what the manufacturer of the motherboard is. I tried running an everest identification software program but it doesn't tell me either. Anyway, none of this helped.
Any suggestions? It is an old pc and I am thinking maybe it is just too old? I need broadband Internet which I am expecting soon.
