A reader is worried about scanning for viruses too often. “Just read Roland Waddiilove’s article on keeping the PC.clean, and am wondering if by running anti-virus programs daily is too much? I know they generate “files” and am wondering if that is what is making my PC run so slowly? I’ve moved pictures and files I want to save onto flash drives. My ‘C’ drive is showing hardly anything on it for its age and use. I’m using CCleaner and Malwarebytes.”
