Default Everything on my computer is busted

No seriously.
Spam is getting past my filter on my email,
im getting weird errors with alot of programs.
Sometimes i'll click a download link, and it will take me not to a blank page but to another weird page.
Its slow, the internet is all stupid...
And ive scanned my computer at least 7 times in the last week.
And nothings found.
So....I may dump my hard drive and make a new email adress. AGAIN.
Because something bad happens, and the whole computer just messes up.
ARGH! Can't do anything....Ever. Everything always messes up, all the time.

What anti-virus are you using? If it's Norton, I suggest downloading Avast for free.

you can reboot your computer, put everything you want to keep on an external hard drive though, becuase you'll lose evrything, it makes your computer run faster and may get rid of potential viruses.

Rebooting is different than reinstalling your OS. Rebooting is turning it off and back on again, with a complete shutdown in between. Reinstalling the OS is what you just described.

Computer problems could be a number of reasons.
#1 Hardware issues -- if you buy OEM, the manufacturer can use cheap parts, thus afflicting the software (hardware runs the software). I once bought an HP computer (never again) and it had so many issues. It was simply HP's fault, I had strange problems that shouldn't have been occuring (bad circuitry and capacitors or something). So either go with a high-quality manufacturer (I like IBM) or get custom built. The latter is cheaper.
#2 Viruses don't necessarily slow your computer up, it's "spyware," you need a good anti-spyware program. I reccomend tenebril's "SpyCatcher."
#3 Have multiple computers and backups. If one of my computers has issues, I can always switch to another one. This also helps to see if it's the computer's fault, or your fault.

You won't get viruses if you only spend time on Hamumu, and email (unless downloading attachments in your email).

Panda Internet Security is the top of the line in Anti-Virus and Spyware software. We have it and our computer has been Spyware, Virus and Malicious Cookie free for 2 years. Unfortunatly, it costs $50, though extremly worth it.

Boot your computer into safe mode, copy everything you want to keep onto an external disk, like a USB pen drive, and then wipe your old disk and reinstall Windows. That's guareenteed to get rid of everything.
