After my recent incounters with the Hijackers and Adware my computer seems to be runing very slow. I did the regular maintenance disk clean and defraged but that still hasn't helped any suggestions.

Did you try unplugging your modem and plugging it back in? If that does not do the trick, go to start and click run and type command in the run box when DOS come's up type in ipconfig, and ping a site like google, type in. ping google.com remember to put a space between ping and the site..and let it run it's course. and see if any packets are lost. Are you on cable or DSL? You can also click start...control panel...network connections right click on local area connection and click repair.. Let us know if there is any packet loss in the ipconfig.. The we can move on to flushing the DNS

I rebooted my computer and unplugged the modem. I ran the ipconfig and pinged google and it said that 0 files lost 0%. I am a newbie so I wasn't sure how to exit from DOS. I had to remember the old school days so I typed "exit" it worked so hopefully that was fine. Also I am on Cable 512K I beleive. Iwent to the control panel and couldn't find any repair command on the LAN connection. Thanks for your help so far.

Has it been doing this for awhile now or has it just started? Cable can get congested and slow down to a crawl. But just in case download this program run it and copy the results and post in the hijackthis forums

http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html

post results here

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...hp?showforum=22

And downlaod the spyware check in my signature its a very good one.

Sorry aboutthe lengthy delay. Yes you can do the same for DSL. DSL does not get congested so it wont be that. Use the same steps above and psot them back. Thanks

In the beginning of this correspondence I talked about my recent encounter with the Hijackers and Ad-ware. The before 7-19 I had two new icons on my desktop MyPcSearch and 2ndThought. I posted my problems here and talked with Grinler and it was suggested I use Spybot Search & Destroy and Ad-aware then run Hijack This. I did and it got rid of alot of stuff. The crazy thing is my computer isn't even that old. You can see the last post on that subject (Hijacker, Dialers, Adware deletion) and it will have my final results after running two programs and then Hijack This.

I also downloaded the Registry Mechanic 3.0. It also found like 150 plus errors. The majority is in a section called Deep Registry Scan. What exactly is the registry?

Previously you mentioned flushing the DNS. What would this entail? Would this help?

The registry is somthign that if you really dont know what it is is something that should not be messed with. Literally one wrong move can make your os dead. But I do not know if that is what is causing your slow down. And sorry about telling you to do the same thigs I did not know you already used the programs.

Can you do this for me, Right click my computer, left click manage, the left click on the the plus on the left hand side of event viewer and let me know if there is any red or yellow marks in there under system and applications. If there are write some of them down. Next right right click my computer left click properties, left click hardware , left click device manager, see if there is any yellow marks in there.

I am not clear whether your PC is running applications slower, or your DSL connexion iseems to have slowed down.
If it is the latter, then both PC Pitstop and DSLreports have tests to determine your download/upload speed. Run both several times during different parts of the day and average these out.

Then ipconfig

Sorry about e-mailing you about this subject but I haven't recieved a
reply after I was told to check the Event Viewer in My Computer. When I did
there is an over whelming amount of errors and warnings and some stuff looks
suspicious. Thanks for your time.
