Hello - We have a 2+ year old Dell Inspirion 6000 and accessing internet sites has become progressively slower and slower and sometimes pages just hang. Also have Office Pro 2007 and Word takes a long time to open and sometimes just hangs so we end task. McAfee came preloaded on the computer but we switched to Norton, then AVG. Used Add/Remove to get rid of McAfee & Norton. Our old ISP said the slow access was due to a virus or infection but nothing was found after several scans.

One website tried to download Antivirus 2009 and started scanning. Was able to close it and believe I was able to remove it but not sure.

Cleaned temp files, recycle bin and scanned with Ad-Aware and Spy-Bot. Tried to download Housecall Anti Virus but it would not load so downloaded Panda and McAfee Avert Stinger - no virus or trogan were found on any of the scans.

I have no idea what the log below means and am hopeful someone will be able to review and let me know if we have a problem.
Thank you in advance.

Hi

Your hijackthis log is clean apart from a couple of orphan registry entries ...

Disconnect from the internet Close ALL browser windows (including this one) - run hijackthis and tick to fix (check the box next to) the list below.........when all are ticked (checked) click the Fix Checked button at the bottom. :-

R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {4D25F926-B9FE-4682-BF72-8AB8210D6D75} - (no file)
R3 - URLSearchHook: Yahoo! Toolbar - {EF99BD32-C1FB-11D2-892F-0090271D4F88} - (no file)


THEN ...

Please Download CCleaner from :-

http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ (click the download tab)

During the installation be sure to UN-check the box for "Ccleaner Yahoo Toolbar" unless you want it.

doubleclick the ccsetup.exe file and install the program...

After installing, go to Start > programs > CCleaner > Options > Advanced > UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours"

Make sure the "windows" tab is selected

Under "internet explorer" tick...

Temporary internet files
Cookies* > see Note below
History
Recently typed URL's
(leave this unticked if you DON'T want to clear the drop down list in the address window of IE)
Delete index.dat files
Last download location
Autocomplete form history


under "Windows explorer" these are optional, but you can safely tick them all if you wish, they are only "most recently used lists"

Other explorer MRU's
(leave this unticked if you DON'T want to clear lists such as the start\run list)

under "System"

Tick ALL these ...


under "Advanced"

no need to tick any of these (but you can if you want, and realise what they do)


Applications tab...

These will mostly clean out old log files for these applications...

Clean:- (if you use them)

Firefox/Mozilla (optional - leave the cookies - see note)
Opera
Sun Java
ZoneAlarm

...
Personally I clean everything in the applications tab... but you tick what you want...

Note: *If there are any cookies you want to keep (if you remove the cookie for a site you require a password for, you will need to re-enter your password when you next visit that site) ... click options > cookies > then keep the cookies you want.

click "analyse" if you want to see a list of what is going to be removed, before it is removed.

Or

click "run cleaner" to let it get on with it's work... clicking this will result in the following pop-up

"This process will permanently delete files from your system. Are you sure you wish to proceed?"

click OK.

see if that helps ... if not let me know & we'll run some deeper scans ...
