I'm running xp64 on an AMD64 Dual processor 15 Model 67 @ 2800 Mhz About a year ago, IE 7 started to take 2 minutes, 40 seconds to load (open). I tried to fix it last year, but could not find a fix. Once IE, or a tab in IE is open, it takes the normal short amount of time to change pages (as long as i cut and past the link in the current window, or the linke does not require a new tab). My work around has been to open IE (with a couple of tabs eacH) two to three times everytime i boot into Windows. Then i just past the links i need. i would like to fix this. i have completed the "Malware Preliminary Removal Instructions", and am attaching the logs. Looking at the Hijackthis log, i wonder if the problem is: Runonce? sass.exe (file missing several times) or other possible virus? any and all help is appreciated. I could also update to Vista 64, but if there is a virus on the computer, i would still have the same problem. i use Symantec Endpoint (which has had several problems since released, but Symantec seems to be finally getting it together). Any ideas? (note, the simple process of attaching files, through "manage attachments" below. opened another IE windows/box, which took another 2 minutes, 40 seconds to appear) Looking at System information, i also note i have 4,095 total pyhsical memory, but only 2.02 GB is available, shouldn't i have the total 4 gigs available?
