I was checking my mails and received a new email from someone unknown, he has written “I got this Gateway laptop for Christmas, and it used to run really fast, but now it goes really slow.If you are beginner, I will ask you to know Personally computer. It happened after I made it look like Windows 7, but that was before I installed Norton, so if I restore it I won’t have Norton. How should I fix it?” And i replied “Yes. Norton is a resource hog. There are many free anti-virus programs that will do just as good a job (or even better) that don’t take up near as much resources. Avira is best one … i am running my laptops with AVIRA …. its still going awesome from last 8 months ! and still have not faces any problem” The second think that i forgot to tell him to use CCleaner which removes all the junks and temporary files from your computer and helps you to improve your computer’s speed.
