I know I must have downloaded some type of malware recently. I was getting popups any time I ran IE (I'm using the most recent IE 7 Beta), so I ran Ad-Aware, Spybot, AVG, etc., and they seemed to take care of the popup problem, but left me with a completely different problem in its place.

Any time I launch IE and then click any link, the browser shuts down automatically. And I've noticed that my computer seems to be running slower than usual - especially when I'm working with any applications (like Outlook) that use a web connection.

I'm grateful for any help anybody can offer to get my system cleaned up. It's driving me nuts.

Not really enough information here to pinpoint the problem. Could be malware or could be related to the beta version of IE7. It probably would be best to have a deeper look as to what's going on with your system by creating a hijackthis log. This will help us to identify and remove any malware files that may be responsible for your problems.

Please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, not here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post the log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy. Please be patient as they are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have no replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, a team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files on your own, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modification you make may complicate the malware removal process and could adversely affect your system.
