I'm new here so go gentle with me lol.
I think this problem started with my daughter clicking a link in MSN after which her msn account randomly dissconnected and sent all her friends an unpleasant web link in her name. I run Norton and have windows defender and they found nothing so i downloaded and installed both Ad-aware SE and Spy-Bot search and destroy which found loads of unpleasant bits which i removed. However as soon as that was done i started having internet connection problems where certain websites wouldn't load and gave a time out error. Speed checker tests came back with excellent results I have a 20meg connection and was getting 19.95 meg on three different sites! The sites that wouldn't load were ebay front page which when it did load it looked very different but after i got onto the normal my ebay pages after many attempts and they were fine! Now ebay is fine and other sites e.g B&Q wont load neither would Argos but others are just fine if anything they load really fast. Also at the same time the mouse started misbehaving, it goes for so long then starts disconnecting and locking up sometimes it can do this every 5 to 20 seconds and be as long as a minute each dissconnect other times it works fine for 10 to 15 minutes. I reinstalled the drivers for the mouse from the original disc and from the website and have tried it in several usb ports and its still the same. The keyboard disconnected once but not since. I have since uninstalled spybot and adaware SE in case it was some sort of conflict but to no effect i have tried to do a system restore but what ever date i pick it says unable to restore to this time! I have ordered another mouse but dont currently have a spare but the web connection issue caused me to pay for it twice by disconnectiong half way through ( i have sorted this but it is a concern) i have done a hijack this log but know i cant post it here so i will see if any of you clever tyupes can help me first my knowledge of PC's isn't too bad but i'm still a novice so nothing too complicted if poss lol
I have posted these two issues together as they started at the exact same time and i don't really believe in coincidences but i suppose they could be unrelated and the mouse is just dying but we'll see when new one gets here i suppose, but why would it work for a lengthy time if that was the case?
I think thats all i can say other than help! and thank you for any assisstance in advance!
Oh yeh i think the MSN issue has stopped but with the mouse stopping and starting its difficult to be certain, come to think of it the mouse issu does seem worse when she is on msn but that might be how she handles the mouse i guess, oh i don'y know damn these machines for making me need them so!
