i have a spyware called Street Ads Browser Enhancer in my programs. i have tried to uninstall it but it starts to uninstall and then says Au-exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. it wont uninstall the program. can anyone help??
I've had s many infections on my computer even though I have a virus remover program. Should I just get a laptop already?
They are all free. Install and update them, then reboot your computer in safe mode (press F8 a few times as it is first turning on, a menu should come up) and run all of them. This should nuke that infection as well as any others you have on the computer. [ russianspy1234's advice column | Ask russianspy1234 A Question ]

It's important, especially with older computers, to have your anti-virus software up to date. Make sure you have a firewall. Run "Disk defragmenter" and do general things to make your computer faster: [Link](Mouse over link to see full location)
Don't delete anything that could be important, like registry files. If you have a lot of files on the computer, considering storing them on an external drive. I have this one and use it for backup (you can get them much cheaper in stores)
