  1. I have a machine that in running IE6 or should I say not running IE6, when IE is opened it hardly moves to the site to the point that you think that IE is locked up. All other programs on the machine work fast expect IE. The in internet connection is a cable setup with a 1.5 up and 3 down speed. I was reading in another thread that gave a link to some software that provide a HJT log where you could check what is going on. Any ideas on correcting the issue?

    my advice:
    Ditch IE and get firefox, much faster and safer.

    Not what I am looking for on IE slowness

    Now that really does not help my IE issue. Yes Firefox may be faster and safe and I may go to that but I would like to know what is going on with IE.

    If you can not help in solving the problem described by the original poster then please DO NOT help at all.

    We are here to solve problems, not avoid them.

    rbalusek if your system is infected. Read this before deciding whether to CLEAN or REFORMAT.

    Then if you should wish to proceed with cleaning your system you need to go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HijackThis (HJT), Combofix, and AVG Antispyware logs as ATTACHMENTS into this thread, only after doing the above.
    We also need to know the result of Panda Antirootkit.
