Windows things. Someone's antivirus had been expired.

    I've seen computers suddenly go slower when the antivirus expired, then run normally after the expired antivirus was uninstalled. I have a suspicion that some antivirus software does it to make people think they have a virus and renew their subscription.

    Anti-virus doesn't make computer to run faster.
    Smart people don't need anti-virus on their machine because they know where we can find right things on internet rather than downloading junk wear which contains malwares.

    If you have to use Windows, use an open-source anti-virus. Will get you some names later.

    You can catch things nowadays just by looking at a webpage, without needing to download anything.

    You can even catch things not looking at a webpage too..

    Please stop using antivirus...

    Not clicking on fraudulent links and not downloading suspicious files will give you much better protection than any antivirus ever could.

    @NGPixel Trouble is nowdays, just visiting a site can cause you to catch a virus, you no longer need to download anything !

    And some perfectly reputable sites can have their advertising feeds infected, so you can no longer say, keep away from the dodgy sites.

    Thus, antivirus is really necessary.

    A firewall is a good idea too..

    There's this great tool that anti-viris companies hate, it's called common sense.
