My name is Marc. I am currently running an Asus Eee 1008HA Netbook. I run Windows XP and use Mozilla Firefox for most browsing. Recently it has been increasingly bogged down and the processor will rev and eventually just die. Regardless of what I am doing, the computer will freeze on whatever program I am using at the moment. The screen locks and the computer continues to make noise but nothing happens. This first began happening a couple of weeks ago and occurred maybe once every other day. It has since devolved to the point where it occurs every 3-5 minutes. My internet browsers are down to a crawl, and frequently freeze up for 10-15 seconds. I am also experiencing a problem with a fake citibank website. When I try to visit citibank, I am redirected to an identical website except when I try to log in, it tells me incorrect username and password and requests Name, DOB, SSN, Mother's maiden name, card information, pin #, account number, and routing number. At the bottom of mozilla while the page is loading, I see waiting for vendorweb.citibank.com. I have tried using malware bytes, ad-aware, pc-doctor and others to remove the issue, including using malware bytes in safe mode. Thus far nothing has worked. I turn to you, Bleeping Computer, in the hopes that you can solve these problems. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank yohttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic299805.html#u.
