  1. I read some other threads and did some scans etc and solved the problem with the search results being redirected when clicked. I still have really slow startup and Outlook keeps taking forever as well to get full loaded - any thoughts ideas?

    We need more detail on the computer brand and model, the OS, the configuration and the software installed, along with what you used to run the scans.
