Anyone else having issues?? Don called and they said restart the modem when you have issues I am thinking maybe Comcast. DSL is driving me nuts.

Matteo what scrubber or program is the best. I have tried them all over the years. Norton and McAfee and some other seem to make matters worse.

Right now I am running Avast and it so so, a Lavasoft product. But my favorite is CCleaner I was able to speed up my start up and fix some registry issues.

So I am open to suggestions

ComboFix without a doubt.

This will CLEAN your computer, like with bleach. So some things that it may feel are not good for your computer will be gone or no longer work.

But if all you are doing is Internet and Email this is for you.

This is industry spec, you heard it here folks. 'Others' will charge you at least a hundred bucks for running it on your system.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Once you run it on your system, let it finish, patience is a virtue.

And as far as real time virus protection goes:

Eset's NOD32 is all I use and ever will.

AVAST, Norton, McAffee, etc. You can keep them all. Although NOD32 is not free, it is very reasonable.

http://www.eset.com

I have deployed, or been responsible for tens of thousands of installs of this product since it was developed in the early 90s.

Oh, and ironically, the company has roots in Germany. Go figure...

That's why it's so good. I bet if you did research at least one of the developers drove a ghia.

I tried putting a turbo on the monitor. It didn't help at all.

The turbo goes into the Ethernet port on the back of the CPU...

That's pretty good for your area...
