Hello,

When I run the AVG Scan, I get the following result:
1- "C:\windows\system32\shell32.dll", result = Change, status = Changed
2- "C:\windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe", result = Change, status = Changed

This has made my internet extremely slow and sometimes (more often than usual) my computer freezes or applications take a long time to load.

Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Goku

It is normal that AVG shows that files have changed. These changes could be due to windows updates etc. You should only worry if they also show as infected.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

I noticed that my partition table MBR, boot sector, kernel32.dll, shell32.dll, ntoskrnl.exe all say changed.

It is normal that AVG shows that files, the MBR or Boot record to have changed. These are done during normal maintainance, when you or windows updates files or have had to correct errors on the drive. The only time that you should worry is if they also show as infected.

To get AVG to quit showing them as changed, open the AVG Test Center, click the F3 key on your keyboard and tell it to accept the changes. If it still shows something as changed after this.. delete the file named AVG7QT.DAT in C:\ and AVG will rebuild it the next time it is run.

If your internet is slow, it's not likely that AVG has caused this. I'd perform a free, online scan here: http://safety.live.com
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I used the windows live onecare and it fixed alot of problems. My internet is much faster!

I have 1 more problem. When I restart my computer, my desktop setting is not kept. (I keep it at 1024*768) but when I restart the computer it goes back to 1280*780 which was the configuration for my old monitor.
