    stay clear of the online scans all they will do is say your infected and tempt you in to buying one from them to get rid its like beeing on a roundabout once started you will never end untill it kills your comp

    if you need a antivirus type in to google antivir or click link http://www.avira.com/en/avira-free-antivirus and download it its free been putting it on computers for over 3 years never had a problem with any computers and built and sold around 1000 in the last 3 year
    not only that do a disk clean up and disk defragmenter

    also stay clear of norton it will only slow your computer down even more if you have it on your comp all ready uninstall it that will speed you up a bit

    I have Norton 360 & it doesn't cause me any running issues, you're confusing with the old norton of years gone by

    norton full stop mate when i get computers in for repair its got norton on it
    it probs doesnt bother you as you either running a good spec or its been on your computer since you got it so you dont know any difference but when your computer starts running ruff and starts getting problems 9 out of 10 times i when one comes in i can remove norton and it runs better
    its because their for way too intrusive easy one just google norton 360 anygood and theirs my answer
    its good if you go to pc world to buy your computer (sorry private joke with the pc shops round here)
    but to be fair the 360 doesnt slow it down as much as they use to do

    I use AVG and have done for ages too, and it is very good and un-obtrusive in use.

    trust me when i say this, norton is bloatware, the best antivirus is nod32 eset, uses very little system res and is updated daily, and online virus checkers are fine, i usually use trend micro online scan once a week as sometimes even with av you can still get comprimised, so a tottaly independant check online is needed.
