Hi I Have Windows Xp On My Pc I Also Avg Free But My Pc Is Just Getting Slower. If I Try To Down Load A Short Video Or Even Just Search It Now Seems Just As Slow As Dial Up . I Always Delete Any Temp Files And Run A Disc Clean Up Nearly Every Time I Use My Pc . I Also Get A Message Sometimes Saying Virtual Memory If Low Is There Anything I Can Do
