A question for the computer experts: [View all]

Last night, my computer was running VERY slowly, even more slowly than usual.

It has been a while since I'd done a search/scan for computer viruses, so I decided to do a couple...

After all was said and done, the machine ran much more quickly.....really normally.

Here's the weird part, the part I don't get:

Neither scan found anything.

The scans never find anything, but the computer always runs better after I do one.

Why is that?
