New to the forum and clueless about computers. My problem is that Internet explorer is not functioning correctly and the computer and connectivity is slowed way down. Search engine results (mostly from google) send me to other sites when I click on the results. If i reload the search page or click back, I can then access the results as normal. I have run updated scans with both Norton Anti-Virus and Spyware Doctor. Both found stuff, including Downloader(s) and cookies to be infected. The problem is not resolved, although Norton keeps finding cookies to be a problem almost every time I restart. I am running XP with a recent Service Pack 3 download on an HP laptop. The problem started happening with service pack 2 however, if that means anything. Thank you in advance for any help on the matter.
