Hi, My Internet Explorer has gotten so slow opening pages that sometimes it literally take three or four minutes. It's like I'm using dial-up again. I followed the directions at the top of this thread and I'm at the point where I need to run CClean but I'm concerned about wiping out programs I use. Under the Applications tab it's listing about a dozen programs that I use and I don't know if it's going to just check those for problems or just delete them. I would appreciate some advice before I hit the Run Clean button. Thanks for any help. Attached is the results of my Bit Defender virus scan. It said it found 2 infected patch files but could not find them in their virus database so they might be false positives.
