You have to make sure you keep your anti virus and anti spyware programs updated. That will give you a chance of catching them. Your anti virus software should be running in the background so it can TRY to catch the virus as soon as its downloaded. Neither program is 100% like said above.
New viruses are developed everyday and sent out. The best thing you can do is be careful of what websites you go to, you get a lot of crap from websites that automaticaly download spyware and viruses. Trojans seem to be the most common. Last but not least, don't open email from someone you don't know.

To get some more speed out of it. Shutdown programs that run in the background you don't need to use. It sucks up a lot of memory. What are you trying to get your computer to run faster? ex., games, internet, etc.? Hardware upgrades and update your drivers always help. Memory helps out a lot. I have a 1.7ghz with 1 gig of memory which gives me the equilivent of running around a 2.4 ghz. Like Shan asked, whats your comp. specs?

Norton will not stop all viruses. It is one of the most popular scanners, therefore, one of the first virus writers and hackers look at breaking. Still, it's not bad.

I don't use Outlook on my home computer, I don't use file sharing software, etc etc. There are a billion ways to get your computer hijacked, especially if you play games online.

With that said, you don't need to scan your computer everyday, but keep your virus definitions current.

I don't know of any software that will permanently eliminate all spyware, so you just have to scan and remove it every now and then. I could be wrong.

Last, stop looking at so much goddamn porn. :rofl:

If you update nortons and run a scan once a month you should be good.

Get Giant Anti-Spyware, It's been rated the #1 spyware removal tool. This program runs in the background and finds spyware as soon as it trys to infect your computer, also it lets you know if you homepage is trying to be changed and if any of your security zones have been messed with. Also any spyware trying to run in memory. Great Program.

There isn't anything that you can put into your computer (software) that will speed up your computer, If a program claims it does, it wont. You can add memory to your computer if you have 256mb or less. You can also do what Becca sed and defrag. Also get a program called CrapCleaner. It is like windows disc cleanup, only better.

Hope that helps...
