My PC is slow when I run IE. I checked the task manager and I have two IE running at the same time. I did the msconfig, defraged, and ran spyware. Here is a copy of my Hijackthis log. Ihope someone can help me out. Thanks Randy

There are many reasons why systems slow down or appear that way to users...malware is not the most prominent nor most likely, IMO.

As for instances of IE reflected in Task Manager...when one window is open, there should be 2 instances IE reflected in Task Manager, with an additional instance added for each tab/window you open in IE.

Please take a look at Slow Computer-browser Check Here First; It May Not Be Malware - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic87058.html .

On the other hand...if you have valid indications of a malware problem, then I suggest that you let us know what they are and we can then direct you to the appropriate forum for dealing with malware issues.
