    Hi Broni,

    I was checking to see how it works. It is definetely better, but not quite good. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    "not quite good" is rather vague. I need more details.

    OK. before we started the cleanup, everything was veeery low... It took 100 seconds to open a home page with IE. Now it is much better, but still it takes about 45 seconds for the same task.

    Is IE your only problem?
    If so, open IE go Tools>Internet options>Advanced tab and click on "Reset" button.
    Restart IE and see how it goes.

    Do you have another browser installed?
    If so, see if it gives you same issues.

    I have two users on this computer - one account has IE, the other one has Mozilla Firefox.. There isn't really a difference... I installed Mozilla earlier hoping that this would be better than IE. After cleaning, they work faster, but still quite slow..

    In this forum, we make sure, your computer is free of malware and your computer is clean :)
    Because the access to malware forum is very limited, your best option is to create new topic about your current issue, at Windows section.
    You'll get more attention.

    Good luck :)
