Okay...I was here not too long ago and was being help in the Hijack This forum under "Help Think I Am Infected Badly"

My NIS is coming up clean and I am showing no viruses. And I really dont want to switch to Firefox Mozilla.

However, my IE still takes about 35 seconds to open and load. And, when I go to Start - Explore - and try to open a file, it locks up my system.

Can anyone please help me?

Laurie

Are all your cookies, browser history, and temp files cleared? What anti-virus program do you use? I have found a registry edit, are you comfortable with doing that?

If you have alot of unnecessary BHO's (browser helper objects) attached to IE, you could try improving performance by disabling some/all of them.

Try this command from the Run dialog:

iexplore -extoff

This will run IE without the add-ons. Does it drastically improve the launching of IE? You may get errors while trying this, but it will tell you if the loading is being held up by the add-ons. If it is, then start removing add-ins until it starts up normally.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I have NIS. I have performed a reg edit like they told me in the previous post. My temp files are all clear and so are my cookies.

I have no idea what a BHO is....so I dont know if those are running.

NIS comes up clean....no problems.

I ran the iexplore -extoff and it said page cannot be displayed.

I am getting very aggravated at the slowness of the IE opening and the files not opening.

What Is A BHO? A Browser Helper Object (BHO) is a code module that is loaded into Explorer and Internet Explorer and runs automatically every time you start your browser. BHO's were designed to allow developers to extend the functionality of Windows and improve features. Some BHO's are malicious malware components which can act as a toolbar or other browser plug-in that is hard to remove.

I looked at your last hijackthis log and noted there were three: Adobe Acrobat Reader, Java and NAV. None of those should be an issue with your browser slowness.

ourwilly provided you with links for troubleshooting a slow system which you advised you read and followed without success. A search on the net will show this is a common complaint with various causes and possible solutions. What seems to work for one does not always work for another.

I would recommend that you at least try Mozilla Firefox to see how it performs as that might help to narrow down the problem.

Mozilla Firefox does open quicker.

However, this does not take care of the problem with the programs not opening when you Start - Right Click - Explore....

Sometimes these programs do not open or they open so very slowly or they lock up the computer.
