why does my computer slow down very much all of the sudden?

I recently had spyware on my computer, but i used yahoo’ spyware scan to find spyware. It found a few items and i removed them all. After that, i think my computer was back to normal, until burned a dvd and left it there while i was out. I came back a night and found out all the program i tried to run was very slow (hardly loading at all). please let me know if you need more detail to help me fix my computer.

    This is most likely due to Malware (computer viruses, worms, trojan horses, spyware, dishonest adware, and other malicious and unwanted software). You will need to run full anti-virus/spyware scan and clean your registry. I recommend you use these programs (they are free).

    1) AVG Free anti-virus

    2) Ad-aware spyware remover

    run anitvirus, then spyware removal, then defrag and disk cleanup, remove all media from the computer(like cd’s, dvd’s floppy’s, etc.) not your memory, and restart the pc. anything after that you need to check your physical memory(virtual memory) RAM

    you might still have a virus or something – but more than likely you’ve got too much stuff running in the background taking up memory and processor power.

    press ctrl+alt+del and go into task manager, switch to processes, make a list of everything on it – and then search online for instructions on how (and if) to remove each item.

    If it still lags out, then search online for free virus scanning software.
