Pc runs slow with security software...
Right now, I have an old dell PC that can still run some games pretty good. A long time ago, we installed AOL security center and ever since our PC runs really slow, but we never thought of it being the program doing it. The other day, one of my little brothers turned off all the security stuff (firewall, spyware protection, and antivirus) and the computer was running like when it was brand new. Do all security programs slow down computers? Can i turn off the applications like my bro did while playong games online since i'm not opening any files off the internet?
thanks in advance.
