Last week I got a "java update" popup notice that i clicked on.  After a few alerts from comodo about files and activities that just didnt sound right I stopped the update.

  After that my internet explorer 9 started acting up:

   - it takes two minutes to load any new page/tab that i open.  once the tab is open it works fine across the different sites until i close it.

   - sometimes the menu bar grays out and is unaccessable

 

I have done the following:

  - loaded java 7 21

  - reset ie9, then uninstalled ie9, run ie8 (runs good), re-installed ie-9

  - avira antivirus, malwarebytes, windows defender, and kaspersky scans have found nothing.

  - malwarebyes anti rootkit found noting.

  - checked my internet speed and is as advertised.

  - i have no add ons, have reduced my favorites, and have reduced my start ups as much as possible.

 

Dont know but just feel something happened when i said yes to that java pop up.

 

windows vista version 6 build 6002 sp2.

 

thanks in advance

If you can, do a System Restore to a date prior to this.

 

If this doesn't work try uninstalling Java.

Thanks dc3.

 

I forgot to mention that I did try a system restore to two days before the "Java update" and it had no effect on the problem.

 

I just now uninstalled java and restarted the pc with no luck there either.

Is this computer only having problems when it is online?

 

Have tried another browser like Firefox or Goolge Chrome?

  the only problem I have on this computer is with internet explorer opening initially and opening new tabs which takes about two minutes.  once any tab is open i can navigate between web sites quickly.  everything else on the pc is running well.

  my other computer is a xp running ie8 and it is as quick as ever on the internet (same wireless modem).

 

here is the speccy results

sorry, got so involved with speccy that forgot to answer the other question:

 

i have not tried another browser such as chrome or firefox.

although when i did switch back to ie8 it ran at the "desired good speed".

Then i switched back to ie9 and it was again slow.

ie9 ran at the "desired good speed" before the "java update" incident.
