Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop ?

My computer has become extremely slow!!!

\015 I saw your site address in AARP magazine and have this question. My computer has become extremely slow and unresponsive. I'm sure that it is all the adware and spyware that has accumulated over the years. I've seen many sites that will provide free scans to assess the problem but I don't know which one is the most reliable or if that is the best way to go. Do you have any advice and recommendations?\015
