I had a virus on my computer and took it to a pro to clean it up. Even after taking off the virus it is still so slow. I have dial up and it takes sometimes a half hour to load a page. I have scanned and found nothing and have defragmented. Still as slow as ever. Can you guide me as to what to do next?? Help!!
