Greetings TechSpot Forums! I am the proud heir of my friend's OLD pc. It is sick and was bogged down with old temp files (I cleaned out near 1GB worth of Temp Int Files!) Symptoms: PC boots up fine (albeit a little slow). After login, and as windows XP is loading, there is an error message about iernonce.dll missing/not found. I am able to click "ok" past it. Once on desktop, I click on internet explorer icon, and it goes to the homepage, then gets stuck... almost looks like the page is trying to finishing loading. Another "phantom page" opens, but I can't bring it up. Looking at the processor, it is obviously doing "something" since the processor spikes to 80 - 100%. Surfing the web is impossible. I tried going into Safe Mode (with networking) and it does the same. I've taken the steps per this post: https://www.techspot.com/community/...lware-removal-preliminary-instructions.58138/ AVG found the following infections: Win32/Heur, JS/Psyme, and VBS/Agent AVG found the following Spyware: Adware Generic2.DZT AVG also found several common tracking cookies These were succesfully healed. CCleaner cleared several files Malwarebytes discovered & removed 218 infected objects THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ASSISTANCE!
