    Hello and welcome to TechSpot! :wave:

    It sounds like you might have a malware problem. Internet Explorer is not a very secure browser. I recommend always using Firefox or some other alternative browser, unless you're at some shopping site or something that doesn't support IE.

    Anyway, please go and read THIS and then post a HijackThis log as an attachment into this thread.

    Regards :)

    Your HijackThis log is clean.

    I really, really recommend uninstalling Norton and installing either AVG free or avast! Free antivirus programs. If you have any problems uninstalling Norton, check out this thread.

    It could very well be that Norton is causing the problem. It takes up pretty many resources, at least as far as memory is concerned.

    Regards :)
