Hello again....I recently posted a thread on this board because my computer somehow came down with both the begin2search.com toolbar and the SAH (shop at home) agent. I didn't get any advice besides someone telling me to read the threads I had already read, so I decided to do a Quick Restore on my computer and get everything back to the way it was when I first bought it. So I did the quick restore and the first thing that happened when I opened IE was the appearance of a pop up. It's not the SAH agent or the begin2search bar, but there is something called Media Access that shows up in the Add/Remove Programs list. I've already removed it twice today but I have no doubt it will appear again tomorrow. I run Spybot S&D and I always get DSO Exploit, DoubleClick, Avenue A, and Advertising.com entries. However, I'm mostly concerned with the snail-like speed in which my websites and programs run. I'm on dial-up so I don't get fast speeds to begin with, but that shouldn't interfere with how fast my programs load. Ever since I restored my computer to factory settings, everything has been extremely slow. One of my favorite websites, www.operationsports.com, doesn't even load in IE, Mozilla Firefox or AOL. Is there anything someone can suggest to help me out?
