slow computer after adding virus software?

I have a dell dimension computer with windows xp. It runs real good. Until I add a virus program. Then it gets real slow and freezes a lot. It does not matter which virus program I use. I have tried several different ones and get the same results. What is the problem?

    Almost all anti-virus slow the computer down…

    The one with the lowest footprint I have found to be avira antivir (But you need to tweak settings on one of the files or it will give you an advert once a day)

    Other than that, tweaking the startup tab in the window from running “msconfig” is a good way to speed things up

    i useAvast, Anti virus.
    It is quite possibly the best. It updates itself several times per day, automatically quarantines dangerous files and does not slow down your PC noticeably (even with low system specs).

    Be sure you have completely remove the other antivirus programs that you have added before downloading another one. You can only have one antivirus program at a time or it messes up the whole computer.

    Go to CNET at http://www.download.com and install CCleaner and SmartDefrag.
    In CCleaner,run both the disk cleaner and registry
    In SmartDefrag,change it to Deep Optimization and run the program
    After these are complete,restart your PC.

    You can use a registry cleaner to clean up your computer and then make your computer faster,Why?the reason is that there may be some registry errors and remnant,corrupt files and temp files in your computer to cause “computer slow”.
    Every time you install and uninstall software on your computer and surfing online you create junk in the computer registry.over time, the registry can grow to enormous proportions, especially if the various programs you’ve installed do not do a good job of deleting and/or updating it’s Registry entries.You need to scan and clean your computer with registry cleaner to make it fast.Good Registry Cleaner will improve your computer and Internet performance dramatically!
