So, even though I know better, I downloaded an .exe file a couple weeks ago. This file, once installed allowed about 16000 new shared .exe programs on my computer. I installed Norton 360 in an effort to fix it and uninstalled the original .exe program (I think it was a futuredial program I installed initially).
So, ever since then, when I'm online, everything acts with serious delay. If I hit a radio button, it will about 5-10 seconds before I hear the familiar "click" of the IE browser. Also, going from site to site is a drag, too. If I open my task manager and then click on an IE button, I can watch the CPU usage go all the way to 100% and doesn't settle back down to the 2-10% that it normally runs until after the new page has ;oaded.
What can I do to help my problem? I've ran 360 full comprehensive check a couple times and Ad Aware a couple times too (with updates).
