I continue to use your advice and have spent much time on the forum with the areas where general help is available. I have added a couple of malware prgms and done all the other house keeping functions suggested which is a great tutorial. I am now using SpyBot to look at all my system start up files and I have found several issues as recommended by the "start up" tab on this site and have used SpyBot to not start those files. Before I was using msconfig in a modified startup before I learned from this site that is not a good thing to do. I have found 9 other files in my startup group that can not be found with the search on the "start up" tab. Should that be a concern? All 9 of these are in the "WinLogon" area and have names like crypt32chain, cryptnet, cscdll, dimsntfy, Schedule, SensLogn, termsrv, wlballoon and AtiExtEvent.
My condition continues, sound works fine with Windows Media Player and even a PowerPoint with an audio in it but I can not hear any audio with Flash 10 (latest version) via IE.
