Hello, everyone - I am accessing from my work computer, which is fine. My personal laptop, a Dell E4300, has just recently gotten hijacked by something. It has taken over MS Explorer. When I boot up, BEFORE ever clicking to start MS Explorer, Explorer starts running. MS Explorer consumes a great portion of CPU in several sessions, and consumes MOST of RAM. So, ANYTHING else runs VERY slow. I am ready to go through the Techspot virus/malware process, but it might take days since thje computer is running so slow. I can get it to run faster for a minute or two by getting in the task manager and ending instances of MS Explorer. But how can I interfere or stop MS Explorer for a longer period of time? Hopefully until I myself choose to run it again? THANKS! Until then, I will have to download stuff on my work comp, transfer to personal laptop, and let it run. This will be a big challenge.
