Windows XP, McAfee firewall is off, but shows on on McAfee security Center and Windows Security. Also take forever to load MSN.com, other item in uTorrent icon in system tray is "blank", but can be hovered.
I have been reading multiple threads from different sites on this subject, seems to be widespread and different causes.
Attempted to use recommendations on McAfee support site and ran McAfee Virtual Technician, which found nothing.
Initially ran Tuneup Utilities 2013 to clean up system.
Then ran rkill in safe mode and followed up with Malware Anti-Malware which removed 50 items.
Ran rkill again in normal mode, attaching log.
Currently running Maleware Anti-Rootkit, which is taking forever.
If I jumped the gun, I apoligize, but your forums were down on the list.
