what exactrly is slow? loading web page? booting? opening applications? copying files?
do you have newly installed OS or old one?
is there a difference in performance when you are connected to internet and not? (if yes and with internet is it slow then probably infection is causing this)
what about performance under Safe mode with networking?
what about performance under somelive CD (Ubuntu for example)

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Apparently one cannot adjust points to higher numbers in the middle of the question.  Used to be able to.  Doesn't much matter any more as I'll be dropping out.  When I joined several years ago it was great you experts helped us dumb-asses get things done.  Then somebody decided to charge money.  It was around $12 or so.  I see now the price has jumped to $19.95
Too expensive for me.  I'm retired and on a fixed income.  Luckily I have some locals who can help me out.
