Hi, I am running WindowsXP and keep my pc scanned daily with AVG. I have had no virus alerts from scanning for some time. I always get a load of spyware when I scan but I clear this daily and don't think it is the problem. What it feels like is that my connection is being hijacked. At times my browsing is ok but at other times it is is much slower or crashes. During some browsing sessions I get run time errors regularly and at other times I get none. I use Outlook for my email and nearly all the time now it is slow. Often it hangs when opening an email or attempting to access an attachment. It did occur to me that a virus scan or some conflict might be slowing it down but I can't find a problem myself. I know my pc fairly well and it just seems like something is draining the life out of it at times. Can anyone help or offer advice on how I can make further checks myself? Thanks
