I have a windows 7/ 64 bit PC and a week ago a small icon started flashing on the taskbar. It is very fast and looks kind of like a camera on a machine cog, white in color. My computer has slowed down and Torch browser does not load pages normally (slow speed and sometimes white pages). How do I remove it? Had similar problem last year with same PC and had to reboot and re-install windows OS to get rid of this. What should I do?

Hallo AltairBluestar!

Would you do the following:

Download Screen317 Security Check HERE and save it to your Desktop.
* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt
* Please post the contents of that document.
Note:: If any security program requests permission to access the Internet, allow it to do so

Please download MiniToolBox HERE to your desktop to run it.
Checkmark the following boxes:
* List content of Hosts
* Flush DNS
* Report IE Proxy Settings
* Reset IE Proxy Settings
* Report FF Proxy Settings
* Reset FF Proxy Settings
* List last 10 Event Viewer log
* List Installed Programs
* List Devices (do NOT change any settings here)
* List Users, Partitions and Memory size
Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.
Click Go and Copy / Paste the result. (result.txt)


Thank you!
