The problem started happening after downloading The Witcher 2 through the browswer since the GoG downloader was giving me problems. So now each time i do anything with any of the broswers it ends up doing a "Not Responding" which takes up to a 2 minutes sometimes to stabalize again. I have run the PC through safe mode and everything runs really fast and i just did a checkdisk and came up with no problems. I'm here now to see if its some sort of virus jumped in during the download through the GoG site.

I went through msconfig to turn off almost everything except for the ones that are needed. It helped somewhat but the problem is still there each time i open up a browswer it would just hang with "Not Responding".

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (v1.50.1) and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click on the setup file to install, then follow these instructions for doing a Quick Scan in normal mode.
  • Don't forget to check for database definition updates through the program's interface (preferable method) before scanning.
Malwarebytes' may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • After completing the scan, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab .
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows the database version and your operating system.
  • Exit Malwarebytes' when done.
Note: If Malwarebytes' encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally will prevent Malwarebytes' from removing all the malware.

-- Some types of malware will target Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and other security tools to keep them from running properly. If that's the case, please refer to the suggestions provided in For those having trouble running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as you may need to rename it or use RKill by Grinler.


Please Reset Internet Explorer or use Microsoft's Fix it to automatically reset registry keys and the browser back to the way it was when initially installed. If you check the Delete personal settings checkbox in Advanced settings, it will reset the home page(s), search providers and Accelerators to their default values. It will also delete temporary Internet files, history, cookies, web form information (passwords) and InPrivate Filtering data.

-- Note: Microsoft Fix it does not work in Windows 7. Instead, you can use the Internet Explorer troubleshooters to achieve this automatically.itially installed. Then clear your browser history.

If using FireFox, please refer to:

The issues you describe could be related to Internet Explorer Add-ons.

The No Add-ons mode allows IE8 to temporarily run without any add-ons (toolbars, ActiveX controls) and is useful for troubleshooting incompatible browser add-ons or extensions, browser freezing and other issues as described in MS Article ID: 969938 - Internet Explorer 8/9 take longer than expected to start.

Press the WINKEY + R keys on the keyboard or click Posted Image > Run..., then copy and paste this command into the Open dialog box: iexplore –extoff
Click OK or press Enter to open IE without add-ons.

Alternatively, you can go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click on Internet Explorer (no Add-ons).
