Anybody have any suggestions? This is really weird, it was working fine the other day. Now every time I restart the computer is really slow and I can't pull up Internet explorer or update Malware bytes. Whenever I do a scan in safe mode to check for malware the computer finds nothing. When I try to pull up Internet Explorer my computer freezes. When I do a registry check with Ccleaner no problems are found. Does anybody have any idea what is going on?

Which version of IE do you have?

If you have version 7 or 8 : Right-click on the desktop IE icon and select Start without addons
If IE starts, one of your IE addons is malfunctioning. Open IE > Tools > IE Options Select Programs Tab and click on Manage Addons. Disable first third party(non-microsoft) addon that you see there. Then start IE in normal mode and check of IE starts. Do this for all addons to find faulty addons.

I'm not sure what version of IE explorer I have but that option does not exist. I previously had mozilla downloaded and when my computer started running slow I deleted it. When I clicked on IE explorer to reinstall mozilla it started freezing. I was having this same problem with websites I looked at on mozilla, so I think something is wrong with my computer. My virus scans are not finding any malware though. Is there something wrong with my fan?

Somebody told me I might have a rootkit infection that my virus scanners are not picking up and suggested using combofix. He told me not to use it without the help of a Tech. Is there anybody that can walk me through this process?
