Hello all.

It took 77 seconds to load this page for posting. For the last two days my loading speeds have been woefully slow.

I've run all kinds of spyware, malware and virus scans - but nothing shows up.

I've defragged, and deleted all the temporary files. I've run two separate registry fixing programs.

My computer's connectivity to the internet is unstable, often needing me to refresh the web address I wish to go to.

An internet speed test seems to indicate that my speed is okay. I'm on a 1500/256 kbps plan.

I don't know what else I can do except try a repair with my Windows XP Installation CD. I would like to submit a Hijackthis report first - but where to?

Thanks for any help.

Thanks. I'll follow that up.

A few months ago when I had this same problem, what someone suggested to me - worked brilliantly. But not this time.

What cured the problem then, was running... ATF-Cleaner, SUPERAntiSpyware, and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. After running these, the problem was solved immediately.

Incidentally, my System Restore function refuses to go back even one day. I have never in my 5 years of using a computer had System Restore able to back-date more than one day at very best. It couldn't do it when I was using Windows 98 SE, and it has never done it with my Windows XP.

Bone Idol,

Before going to the HijackThis forum try the Am I Infected forum. On the forum home page about two thirds of the way down.

Seems that 77 seconds to load implies something in your PC is gulping your memory. Let someone have a look there first. It's quicker that the HJT forum (which can take a week or two)

Thank you MOle!

Well, I seem to have fixed the problem, but I'm a bit surprise by what was the solution.

I ran my ESET NOD32 Anti-virus program as usual, but this time I did it while in Safe Mode. And that's it. It seems to have done the job. I ran ESET yesterday several times - not in Safe Mode - and it made no difference.

That's another solution for my notebook.
