Computer is Acer Aspire 5750 Pentium core i-5 processor. I've no idea about RAM on the machine
Got this from him this morning
It's been slowing up recently in downloading webpages. I thought there might be a bug in ti. It already has an anti-virus programmes in it. However I downloaded the free AVG programme last night and its working a treat after it discovered 70 files that were contaminated and are now quarantined
I don't know what he was using before - the machine is about 1 year old .
I suggested that if AVG had found some nasties it might be as well to check for things like Malware and Keystroke loggers .
I shouldn't have done that - he's now asked how he does that - and being a MacHead I've no idea as to what he should be running.
Suggestions of things for him to use, would be very gratefully received. Remember he's no Techie Genius .
OH I've already told him that he must not try and run 2 Antivirus Progs at the same time
