The commercial links in your signature look like spam to me. Please remove those.

Then post more information about your computer, like processor speed, installed memory, hard disk capacity and free space available.

You can use a linux LIVE-CD to test your hardware before actually install it :)

Yes, you can have Windows and Linux on the same computer. Do you have some empty drive space? Tell us how much and what drive it is.

While nothing in the world of computers is trouble free from malware, Lnux is much less susceptible to viruses, worms, trojans, and other baddies than Windows is.  Using Linux is a lot of fun, too!
