1) Go into your PC's Control Panel menu for your modem or fax software, and turn off auto-answer.

2) Definitely update your anti-virus software -- Slower computer speed is typical of a recent virus that is a real pain to remove (speaking as a parent of a couple of young teens who are not as careful as they should be when on the net with our home computers....)
