Got back from vacation last week and my usually fast Gateway computer now moves like a snail. I have broadband internet and it now takes longer to get on line than with my old phone modem. Then w/o warning, my virus scan goes into "shutdown mode" and it won't recognize my password to go into it and reactivate it. My cable modem light is flashing like a christmas tree even when I'm not on line. Apparently I have like "0" extended memory. Guess I'll be off-line after tomorrow afternoon while I take the old computer in for a good "roto-rooter-ing". Friggin' hackers. They're probably ricers, too.
