Hi, I thought I just fixed my laptop from an internet explorer crash virus, however my laptop is running slower than ever now, and even randomly crashes when I start my computer as well. I have an inspiron e1705 laptop, w/ windows xp. I've run ccleaner, malwarebytes, avast!, sypbot, and have found nothing wrong and the sluggishness boarders on unbearable, as my computer can barely run two programs at once.
Also, I don't know if this is important, but my volume gets frozen periodically, so where I can't change the vlume with the laptop's buttons, the only way i can adjust the volume is by going through the control panel.
I tried to write down the more important looking info the blue screen said: Problem Detected... Driver IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL... atapi.sys... address f735f9940.
Is there anything i can do?
