PC running slow,Problems w/MSword, Internet explorer problems with popups and blocked sites

Q: PC running slow,Problems w/MSword, Internet explorer problems with popups and blocked sites

Hi,
This is my first post here, so I hope that I follow all of the rules. And thanks in advance for any help. My computer has been running slow for a while, and I think one of my kids might have gone to a website that allowed some malware in. My OS is Windows XP SP3. I have noticed a few things, 1. Had a problem with Adobe acrobat reader, it wouldn't update for some reason, and couldn't open PDF files for a while, after uninstalling and reinstalling several times, I think it is now working. Also noticed more recently when working in MS Word 03 every once in a while it won't let me save files. Now I am noticing that when I have Internet Explorer open for a while, IE tries to pop open a new window, to which the IP address is blocked by K9 web protection 91.212.226.6 is the IP. After googling this IP address, I found a few posts leading me to think there might be a trojan kicking around on my pc. I have run MBAM and Hijackthis in an attempt to find the culprit, but MBAM comes up clean, and I can't find it on Hijackthis. Any help woould be appreciated.
Thanks!

Preferred Solution: PC running slow,Problems w/MSword, Internet explorer problems with popups and blocked sites

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Problems With Computer Running Slow And Cid Popups

Hi,CiD popus are not your only problem, you are dealing with a LOT more other malware as well.I understand that you need help in order to get rid of the malware that is present on your system - But you need to help us first..I notice that you never scanned with an Antivirus previously before starting this thread - because you don't even have an Antivirus installed!This is somewhat suicidal in today's digital world.That's why I want you to install one first!!* Please install Avira Antivirus: http://www.free-av.com/This is a free Antivirus.Perform a full scan with Avira and let it delete everything it is finding.Then reboot.After reboot, open your Avira and select "reports".There doubleclick the report from the Full scan you have done. Click the "Report File" button and copy and paste this report in your next reply together with a new HijackThislog.Then we'll start from there, because it really makes no sense otherwise that we clean this up manually if an Antivirusscan is not present which should be able to deal with most and prevent further reinfection.By the way, next time you post your HijackThislog, make sure the log is complete, because I am missing the header of the log here.

It seems that something is affecting my Internet Explorer. I haven't had any problems with this before. When I manually type in a URL it takes a minute or two to go to the page. IF I use a link from the same site saved as a bookmark the site loads instantly. I was able at one point to configure my firewall (Zone Alarm Pro) by forcing all programs to ask permission to access the Internet. One by one each program made the request. I then launched IE and my homepage came up. When I typed in an URL a program asked permission to access the Internet and I blocked it and the browser reacted normally by going to the requested URL. That doesn't work anymore.

Right... So I've got some problems...
-It started just a while ago when I suddenly started getting all of these pop-ups. One of the appeared to be a virus-scanner advising me to buy or download it. I didn't really heed that one.
-Right after that, my own computer started giving me messages saying 'you're computer is infected'. That, and the machine itself started crackling like some sort of coffee machine or something. When I clicked on the message balloon I told you about earlier, I got the same popup.
-A curious thing that has happened also: I just restarted the computer, and it went REAAAALLLY slow.
-Another curious thing: my computer has suddenly decided to get a mind of its own, it appears. At random moments, it opens up random maps (usually my documents).
-I can't do anything on the internet anymore. All websites I choose to visit, just don't appear. It appears as thought they are blocked somehow. The browsers do say they're "done loading the webpage", but all I get is a white screen. And in the case of internet explorer, a message saying the program doesn't respond -_-'. I actually have to get help on my sister's computer XD
-The final, and most troubling thing of all: I just attempted to restart the computer, and I don't get anything done anymore. When I click on my icon in the startup screen, the 'startup sequence' begins, I can see my wallpaper and all, and then it completely stops... N... Read more

1-21-10 I am not a tech guy so I hope you can help me through this. From the successful posts I've read on your site, I'm thinking you can.

Issue: I must have picked up a virus that is preventing MS Internet Explorer from running on my Dell Demension 4600i. When I double click on the icon, nothing happens. I am writing you from my laptop which is running off a wireless connection to a Cisco Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router. The Dell Desktop PC is hardwired into the Router and all connections appear to be good so it is not a hardware problem.

I am not getting any error messages with this issue.

I subscribe to McAfee virus and firewall software since 2004 and never had a problem before. McAfee says there are no infected files (I ran the full scan).

I downloaded and ran MalwareBytes Antimalware 1.44 in safe mode (full scan) and it found 3 infected objects. I let MalwareBytes delete those. Internet Explorer still did not run. I then ran MalwareBytes in regular windows mode (quick scan) and it found six infected items. I let MalwareBytes delete those. Still, Internet Explorer is not working.

I tried to run AVG but the virus (I think) is blocking that from running because it the .exe file wont run.

A:Problems With My Pc Going Slow And Internet Explorer

Use the application to quarantine all that it has found. All but the first instance appear to be tracking cookies which, while not something one wants, are not that harmful.
A sluggish computer may be caused by other things than malware. Have you performed maintenance on your computer recently? (cleaned unneeded files, reviewed applications that launch on start up, run checkdisk and defragmented your hard drive).

My computer has been slow lately. It lags and I figure I have spyware and such on it. I have ZeroAds, The Ultimate Troubleshooter, Norton System Works, and Norton Antivirus. It's a little quicker since I installed and updated these, but still not much better. I wasn't sure if these programs got rid of spyware or anything or if I should try some different software. Also, I wasn't sure if having all these programs to try and clean up my computer would counteract eachother and slow down my computer. Also, the time it takes to boot up my computer is a lot longer than it ever has been. Finally, my Internet Explorer doesn't work right. If I use AOL, the internet usually works right, but when I try Internet Explorer (because I don't have AOL at school), I get tons of popups even though I have ZeroAds and then Explorer just freezes and eventually I have to CTRL ALT DELETE it. If anyone knows how to help me it'd be greatly appreciated.

Today, while on mapquest the internet explorer started opening internet explorer continously, last count that I could see was up to 93 windows, when it does that, the modem runs constantly, the pages are flashing white and black, and the words change colors. When it does this, you can't do anything at all and you can't close the pages unless you shut the computer completely down. Also, while using hotmail, it also freezes up and you have to open task manager just to exit and when you do that it says that internet explorer isn't responding and prompts me to close and restart.

Upon scan using Macfee, nothing shows on scans or on AVG. Earlier about 2 hours ago, it did show something about a trojan being detected but it was quaratined. I hope that I followed directions as explained if not just let me know and I will try it again. Thanks

I get random popups that inform me I don't have security whatever, and I'm sure it has nothing to do with any of the AV programs I have. I posted a thread about 4 days ago about task manager after recovering from a worm, but I'm not sure it's completely gone. I've tried the following:
avast! antivirus
Norton Antivirus (14.0.0.89)
Adaware
Spybot Search and Destroy
Mcaffee Stinger

...and none of them have turned anything up. Any tips to stop the frustratingly random popups? Thank you.

Even if that does stop them there may still be something nasty on your PC so to be on the safe side I would post a HijackThis log in the Malware forum here :-

Thanks so much for being out there to help us poor lost souls out!

I don't know what's happened lately to this laptop. My kids use it mostly and lately they've complained that it runs very slow and unstable. I tried to run ComboFix but it said I wasn't closing out AVG. I went to TaskManager and found several AVG*.EXE entries that I tried to shut down, but they'd keep coming back. I didn't dare proceed any further with ComboFix. I also saw a few entries in my HijackThis log that look worrisome. There was some kind of WinSearch (or something like that) loaded that I think I removed through "Add/Remove Programs", but I don't know if it left things around.

So I'll start by uploading my HijackThis log and see where you send me from here.

Thanks!!!

At seemingly sporadic times, there will be random ads sounding off in the background. I checked task manager and found Internet Explorer running in the 'Applications' tab, but no IE windows were present in my taskbar. In the 'Processes' tab, about 3-4 iexplore.exe would be running, with one that is consuming exceptionally high amounts of memory, from 50 K - 350 K. I am unable to 'end task' the IE application but i can temporarily stop the problem by ending all iexplore.exe process. However, after some time the problem reoccurs.
I believe the cause of this problem is due to a dupe Adobe Acrobat site that I was tricked into clicking to download the update just a day prior. Upon the completion of the download, my avast antivirus immediately notified me of the malware and then proceeded to block the infections by sending them to the virus chest. However, that did not seem to fully nullify the malware. I then restarted my computer as I did not want to click anything from the dubious prompts I was presented with. Afterwhich, I deleted whatever I had downloaded. I checked my control panel for any newly installed programs and found something called 'sursenel' that was installed/modified at the same time the virus was detected. However it was located in AppData which I believe to be essential files for the Windows OS, so I have not done anything to it for fear of data corruption. I used avast antivirus to scan that 'sursenel' folder and no threats were found. I have since then done a ... Read more

My original system is a HP Touchsmart Desktop. 610-103a i7 [email protected], 8gig Ram 64bit OS running Windows 7 Home Edition originally Internet Explorer (IE) 9 (?).
 
I have been using Avanquest/VCom's System Suite successfully for over 20 years and I have upgraded over various platforms and computers. I perform system check daily and a full AV scan once a week. 
 
I upgraded to IE 10 soon after buying the computer and upgraded to IE11 a couple of years back which has worked fine. About 3 weeks ago the cursor would not select boxes which rendered it useless. I decided to upgrade to Windows 7 Professional ($200.00) to see if this would correct the problem. I did this also because I have some XP software I would also like to use as my old XP system has stopped working. I was told by Microsoft this would work as Win 7 pro was backwards compatible, and may fix the problem with IE 11..
 
It didn't make any difference to the cursor problem After a session with Microsoft Support they suggested I revert to IE 10 which alleviated the cursor problem. Microsoft took control of my computer while I did this and performed some investigation themselves. Soon after the session ith microsoft I gat an alarming anti-virus screen on my screeen with a white exclamation mark in a red triangle bouncing acros my screen. The anit-virus window that was running madly had the Windows Essentials logo on it.

Hello. I have a very basic knowledge of computers, so keep that in mind when directing me with what to do.
My computer is running on Microsoft Windows XP. I use Firefox as my browser and when I do a search in google or yahoo, I am redirected to a bunch of different sites that are not listed in the search. Also, everytime I open the browser, a pop up and new tab comes up that says I won a Walmart Gift Card (with the site address of http://holidaycontest.s3.amazonaws.com). My computer is running extremely slow...to the point that I have to wait about 5 minutes to open a folder on my desktop. Lastly, when I log onto the computer a Run dll error pops up with the dll being ntofpx.dll.
I have run Antivirus software, Malware, Spyware, defragmenter, registry cleaner.
Thank you.

Forgot to mention that this all started when we got hit with the Microsoft Security Essentials virus, and hotfix was attacking our system. I believe it has been removed, but that was what started everything.

Hey I've been having major problems with my Laptop.
Every ten or so minutes when my McAfee 2010 security suite disables real-time scanning it'll re-enable itself causing a lot of alarming pop-up boxes which is slowing my computer. Not sure whats causing it but it seems like malware.
Next theres this process which starts at windows start-up (DivxUpdate.exe), I don't think this is actually a part of divx. I've read somewhere that it is a form of autorun malware, it consumes 99% of my cpu majorly slowing down my computer, I think I may have similar malware on here that are problematic.
Also my firefox frequently say that there's an unresponsive script which temporarily freezes my whole computer and when I finally manage to get to task manager I have to end the process which seems to be using a regular amount of cpu and memory.
I made a topic exactly 1 month ago but nobody answered so I thought I'd make a new one seeing as the problems are progressing and building up.

Thanks for any help I'm provided with.

My dad recently asked me to look at his computer which had some pretty bad spyware/malware on it. While I don't know much about it, I was able to follow an online guide for removing the specific program. However there seems to be a host of problems for using the internet.

Firstly google links redirect to some random search engine about random search topics, like second hand cars. Secondly he is unable to access his hotmail inbox. That is he can log into hotmail, but he cannot open the link to access any of his mail folders. Thirdly, the internet as a whole has slowed down massively, not in a bandwidth way but in that his browsers lag and freeze up for a few seconds on loading some sites. All in all his computer is pretty useless right now, despite being at his house I am having to post this from my Macbook.

In following the steps outlined before posting I was for the most part unable to follow any of the links, as they would not load on his computer. Instead I had to download the programs onto my Macbook and transfer them to his computer. I was unable to perform the panda security scan on my dad's computer and couldn't download the IE block list that is suggested with SpywareBlaster.

Oh I guess its important to mention he is running Windows XP, and has the issues regardless of whether he uses Firefox or IE.

McAfee isn't the fastest security software... It's a system resource hog and filters your browsing quite a bit.

Also, you have an outdate version of Java. Uninstall it and install the latest Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0_16.

My IE10 searches are is running so slow as to be almost unbearable. I having starting using Chrome for searches instead since that is running normally. I am using the Google Toolbar to initiate searches on IE10 as I have been forever with no problems. Not aware of any issue that may have caused this slow down to start. Did a virus and maleware scan and only have Google, shockwave, adobe PDF helper, Microsoft Silverlight, Skype and Java SSV Helper add-ons enabled. Every so often IE10 will report that a long running script is executing. Clicking on links and shortcuts works perfectly fine and quickly. It is only searches that are hanging up IE10 a long time before results are posted.

A:Internet explorer running very slow

Striker
I am not that familiar with Win95 however there are some items you can try with IE 5.x that may help.
1)- Go to Internet options and delete all the old temporary Internet files including all offline content when asked.
2)- Try cleaning\deleting the History files.
3)- Run a find and see if there is a file called Hosts, (note: no extension on this file if found, Don't confuse with one that has an extension) if one called justs Hosts exists highlight and delete since it may contain old information of url's which allow the for faster web addressing.

Test your IE speed now.

If all is OK then don't do the following.

Run a repair on IE. I believe it was available on 5.x. Go to start\settings\control panel if available in win95 and go to add-remove programs. Scroll down to "Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x" and highlight and select remove. When popup appears select repair. After repair restart system and restart IE. You will have to change your homepage because the repair will have changed it to msnrunonce.

Now try you IE function. That is about all I can think of to increase IE speed. The rest would concern Windows work and I am unsure of Win95 procedures.

I am having a problem using IE v. 7 with Windows Vista. It seems to work fine on one of the user accounts on my PC, but will barely work. In behavior it acts like all of the computers memory is being used (not the case). It also runs slower than dial up internet. I have a 3 mgb connection. I don't have any problems using Mozilla. The last thing that could be related is that I attempted to install drivers for an old scanner. Turns out there is no driver for Vista, so I uninstalled all software related to that program. Any suggestions?

Just thought I'd share this information.

I've purchased a new machine with Windows 7. Everything was fine, including Internet Explorer (8) 64 bit, until I needed to access some web functions that seemed only to be available in the 32 bit version of Explorer.

Upon starting the 32 bit version of Explorer it seemed to run at a snails pace, which for the high spec machine I have is not right. It took approx. 30 seconds for the application to start compared with 2 seconds for the 64 bit.

I searched many posts and tried lots of the suggestions I found in order to correct this but nothing worked. I then shut down my Zone Alarm Anti Virus & Firewall and hey presto the 32 bit version was as quick as the 64 bit.

After some trial and error I managed to find the setting that was causing the slow running -

Open the Zone Alarm Control Center
On the left pane click Browser Security
Click Settings then Advanced tab
Under Virtualization remove the tick against Enable Virtualization
Retry 32bit Explorer

Hope that helps someone out!

Cheers,

Steve.

Good information. The only thing that I found interesting is that you say your 32bit version of IE8 wouldn't/couldn't access a webpage. I didn't think webpages were 32bit nor 64bit but html language and would be able to read by all IE.
I'd like to see the website if possible. Can you send me a PM with the link so I can check?
Thanks

A:slow pc when running internet explorer

What edition of Internet Explorer are you using and are there many add-on/tool-bars installed?
The multiple instances appearing in your task manger could be attributed to the multiple tabs running.
This is also a common occurrence when running a web browser such as Chrome.

A:Display Problems On Internet Sites

Hi Craig,Which browser are you using? If you are using both Internet Explorer and Firefox, does it happen in both? Which browser version? Do you mean that the areas where there are text and the areas where there are images are overlapping?A screenshot might help. I can recommend FastStone Image Viewer for a screen shot if you don't have anything like this. It's a really good freeware application that will let you get a shot of just a window, or of a rectangular area of your screen. Thanks.ZllioEdit: Added comment.

For the last few days I've been having problems connecting only to certain sites (mainly my Yahoo e-mail, Gmail, eBay, MySpace, and a few others). I've also noticed a slight general slowdown but nothing major when accessing other sites. Using either Explorer or Firefox I get a message 95% of the time on these particular sites that it's too busy or has timed out. But my connection seems fine and other sites load. Sometimes, when I click on a link on these pages I get a pop-up box like I'm trying to download something (this happens on eBay more often than anywhere else). For example:You have chosen to openeBayISAPI.dllwhich is a: Applicationfrom http://cgi5.ebay.comWhat should Firefox do with this file?Open with dllfile (default)Save to disk I can usually get the next page to load eventually if I keep clicking many times in a row.

Hello srossi and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. The only thing I see in the log is a keylogger here: O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [winlogons.exe] C:\Program Files\Free KGB Key Logger\winlogons.exe

If you did not install this program then I would definitely remove it. As far as the eBay issue, it is related to various ISP's and proxy servers and seems more prone to FireFox 1.5 than other browsers. IE seems to be unaffected. To fix the FireFox issue you will need to contact your ISP and have them tell you how to setup a (and which) proxy server to use.

Cheers.

In our office we have a 1.5mbit ADSL internet connection.

One of our clients also has a permenant ADSL connection with a differnet service provider to us. Our problem is we have the client site set up so we can VPN into it using PPTP, but cannot. We are even unable to ping there IP address (and vice versa).

The VPN server is set up properly, we know this because if we dial up using a 56k modem to the internet, we can vpn in to there network with no problems, but 56k is tediously slow compared to our 1.5mbit.

Can any one point me in the right direction as to why this isn't working?

Kind Regards

A:Internet connection problems between two sites

It would help a bunch if you specified what network devices are inbetween your computer and the ADSL line. My guess is the dial is direct from a computer, and the ADSL goes through a router. If so, it may be a configuration issue, or perhaps even a new router that allows IPSEC passthrough for the VPN.
