Which e machine do you have, and what operating software?

And is it slow on the internet or everything you do? What type of internet connection are you using? Is it dial up,dsl or cable?

sounds like your 'new' machine has a ton of malware running, or maybe the drive is fragmented

go to www.filehippo.com and download and install the following and let them run when prompted

Malwarebytes

CCleaner

Defraggler

also download and enable MS Security Essentials if its not already running

plus go to www.panicware.com and download pop-Up Stopper and make sure it is running
