IE 7 started to take 2 minutes, 40 seconds to load (open). I tried to fix this on my own for quite a while, but could not find a fix. Once IE, or a tab in IE is open, it takes the normal short amount of time to change pages (as long as i cut and past the link in the current window, or the linke does not require a new tab).
My work around has been to open IE (with a couple of tabs eacH) two to three times everytime i boot into Windows. Then i just past the links i need.
i would like to fix this. i have completed the "Malware Preliminary Removal Instructions", and am attaching the logs.
Looking at the Hijackthis log, i wonder if the problem is:
sass.exe (file missing several times)
or other possible virus?
any and all help is appreciated. I could also update to Vista 64, but if there is a virus on the computer, i would still have the same problem. i use Symantec Endpoint (which has had several problems since released, but Symantec seems to be finally getting it together).
I didn't get a respouse, so i used hijackthis to delete the runonce entries, i then loaded ie 8. i teh installation process, i thecked the adins individually, and the google toolbar was the problem.
now, IE 8 is fast.
