Ran a search and found nothing. Sorry if this is a repeat.
So I managed to catch SpySheriff about a week ago, maybe less, and immeditally deleted the program's folder in C:\Program Files. The next day, to get rid of the warning bubble popping up from the clock, I used SmitFraudFix (From this thread
on this forum).
I followed all of the directions given on that thread, including cleaning the registry, and re-booted and everything seemed fine until I opened IE6. Every IE6 window now takes at least a minute or more to open and slows everything else down in the process. Once the browser window is open, however, everything works as it should. (Until a link opens another browser window or I just need another browser window, in which case ^)
I downloaded FireFox to see if it had the same problem, but it dosen't. I know half of ya'll (I'm from Georgia) are going to say 'just use firefox,' but I rather like IE6 (tried 7... didn't do it for me) and would be opposed to converting to FireFox.
