I am running a Windows 7 PC that suddenly when doing ANYTHING within Internet Explorer, is running EXTREMELY slow. This would include cursor movements, clicking on menu items within IE, or even staggered movement when moving the IE Window. I ran a internet speed test through Speedtest.net and am getting about 20% speed of what I normally receive.
If I close IE, and run FIREFOX, everything is pretty quick, no delays, and no lagging. AND when running a speedtest through speedtest.net, everything is normal. The problem appears to be something odd with ID (Virus? Malware install?). Even clicking on X to close the browser window takes a few seconds to respond. It also appears to affect other programs as well, bringing the whole PC to a halt. Yet, when checking the Task Manager, everything appears "normal" (no load on CPU). I have also attempted to disable all add ons.
I have run Norton Internet Seuciry (FULL scan), Malware Bytes (FULL scan), performed a RegInOut System cleanup, and run a "Microsoft Safety Scanner" (FULL Scan). I have removed any UN-necessary ad-ons and toolbars, no difference. Cleared cache, no difference. PC Was recently cleaned out (dust). IE Version is 9.0.8112.16421
Looking forward to some help, you guys are fantastic! Thank you.
