QUOTE: Usually, if your computer is performing strangely, this is a good sign of being infected with malware. “Strange” can mean one or more of the following symptoms:

– Heavy CPU processing – Too much RAM consumed – High network activity – Runs overall slower – Doesn’t enter in the standby mode anymore – Programs takes longer than usual to open

You see strange errors popping up on the screen, including BSOD (blue-screen-of-death – aka complete operating system crash)
