    My work computer is running kinda slow and Im guessing its got a few virus's.

    Anyone know any free software I could/should use. Ive got adaware and an AVG scan that happens every day but its still really slow.

    Can anyone help me out ?

    cheers lads

    adaware. Think it's by lavasoft. Should clean your shizzle right up. Failing that get norton. Failing that switch to mac.

    running avg slows your computer right down, so running it everyday whilst your working wont help the problem!

    Microsoft Security Essentials hardly uses any system resources.
