Basically the problem is in the title, when i run internet explorer it loads pages slower than usual, i guess this is due to "Avast! antivirus" running in the background stopping "some" of the popups and internet page redirecting. but still Avast! isnt able to stop all of the popups and i get loads of random ones, such as "trebor mints" and "best antivirus protection" and "home and office internet security software" and stuff like that, i have run a thorough scan of the computer using avast and removed alot of problems, i also used spybot search and destroy to also remove a load and then after that I ran Wincleaner, to clean other crap off of the computer. Previous problems that i had before this included the computer freezing and an annoying antivirus spyware coming up saying the computer was infected and to buy their software etc... this problem was solved using the antivirus, spybot s&d and wincleaner. but it wasnt until i ran internet explorer i still realised i had the popups. please some one help me or direct or guide me into fixing this problem.
