If you'd like to know more about this subject I recommend the Wikipedia entry on Rogue security software you'll find it HERE.
There are some very good FREE Antivirus and Anti-Malware programs available. You'll find the ones I recommend on my links page.

If your system seems to be getting slower and slower, chances are it is a result of the file-system on your Hard-drive becoming fragmented.
"Fragmentation" Refers to the condition of a disk in which files are divided into pieces scattered around the disk. Fragmentation occurs naturally when you use a disk frequently, creating, deleting, and modifying files.
At some point, the operating system needs to store parts of a file in noncontiguous clusters. This is entirely invisible to users, but it can slow down the speed at which data is accessed because the disk drive must search through different parts of the disk to put together a single file.
