Strange behavior - LENOVO YOGA 700

Q: Strange behavior - LENOVO YOGA 700

ANy idea why sometimes the Lenovo yoga wifi doesnt work, but seems to be after i first start up the machine.Then i do a restart and the wifi works fine.. could be faster , but it is ok. Why do i always have to restart to get the internet to work better?? What is that about? This is not always , but happens often. Does the restart do something different than the initial start up from being off?

Preferred Solution: Strange behavior - LENOVO YOGA 700

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.)


I have a new L390 yoga with i5-8265.When idle, cpu temperature is around 45 C with cpu fan is completely off.If I start a cpu intensive task, cpu temperature slowly raises to 85-90 C. Fan stay off.After reaching 90 C, CPU clock is lowered.Only after the CPU has been at 85-90 C for more than 20-30 seconds the fan start, initially very slow, then gradually increases speed.Once the fan started, it stays on for several thens of seconds, even if the CPU temperature drops back to les than 50 C.Looks like there is a long delay in fan response to temperature changes.Is this behavior normal and intentional?I have upgraded the bios firmware to latest version available and nothing changed.Same behavior is seen in both windows and linux.Sorry if my english is not very good.

I got this very strange problem with my Yoga 460 that I can not solve on my own. When my power is low and I plug in the AC adapter the mashine gets very slow. A quick check on my CPU-Z stats shows that something prevents the CPU to exit its power saving mode (Multiplier fixed at 4x). I observed this problem up to a power level of 30%, after that the laptops runs smooth again.The mashine does not enter a software power saving mode visible to me. The problem is consistent when I manually set the power plan to "high performance". What could be the origin of this problem?

Hi everyone.My Thinkpad (Yoga 12.5, WINDOWS 10) screen acting strangely. It works, then touch function stops. It starts working again when I do enable/disable HID touchscreen in device manager. Works sometimes 10 minutes, sometimes an hour or more, then stops again. Power saving option is OFF on this device. Drivers are all updated to the latest through Lenovo driver update process.Since it is partially fixed by driver enable / disable function, I suspect it is software and not hardware issue, however can not pinpoint it. Other clues to solve this mistery: 1)It is plugged in (not on battery) 2) HID-compliant touch screen driver is Microsoft version (10.0.16299.15) Driver date 6/21/2006 (Maybe old?) I hope somebody can help.Thank you.

Hi, tried out a brand new Yoga C930 with 4K screen the first time yesterday. I came across three issues: 1. When I took it out from a computer bag, I flipped it to tablet mode. Wallpaper showed up but the Windows login prompt did not. I had to flip the LCD to turn the laptop into laptop mode. Then, the login prompt showd up. What is wrong? 2. After I logged on, some area of the screen were not responsible. For example, I touched the Windows icon at the bottom left but nothing happened. Similary, the computer did not respond when I touched the middle of "Type here to search". Is the touch screen defective? 3. I connected the laptop to a projector at school, even I chose mirror mode, nothing happened on the projector. I went to a different room hours later. Again, connected to the projector via Anker's usb-c to HDMI adapter. It did not work but after a while, my laptop screen showed up on the projected screen. Is my new laptop defective?

 Hi When i am building a large maven project the cpu does the following:Runs turbo between 3.8-4.2ghz for a few mins.Then steps down to 2.6ghz for 10-20s (temp is not 50-60 degrees celsius)Then it sits at 0.8ghz until the build is completed. Computer i laggy and slow now.

Hey. My Lenovo Y-50 is just over a year old and all of a sudden the keyboard started acting strangly. On the windows login screen everything is normal but then the keyboard doesn't work at all. When I turn on the on-screen keyboard it starts working right away. Any ideas what the problem might be?

A:Lenovo Y-50 strange keyboard behavior

Hi Svalm ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
How was it if you use an external USB keyboard? 
Erratic key behaviour may be influence by softwares (ex. malware/virus ) so would this also happen with the laptop working on safe mode ?
Try to update the keyboard drivers and if same issue , uncheck the box to disable filter keys .
When did the issue started ? If there was changes made on default settings a system restore to go back to previous date maybe able to fix it the way it was on that date .
How was it if you create another user account as administrator? This is to isolate if issue is systemwide or only on user profile.
Finally check the keyboard performance in the BIOS (refer to manual downloadable from the support site on how to go to BIOS specific to your model) or booting on a rescue image. If same issue then it may be an issue with the hardware and best to check if there are obstructions (dirt/particles/ liquid spills) that may cause this . 
Update us how it goes.

I have the new DolbyVision screen on my X1 Yoga (3rd gen), and I'm noticing some strange behavior.   Specifically, when I pull up a window that is bright (ie mostly white) it looks dim at first, but then slowly brightens up.  If I then switch to a window that is mostly black, if I pay close attention to the parts that are not black, they slowly dim down in brightness.   I have all of the adaptive brightness features turned off (as far as I can find - maybe there are more?).  It seems to be more about what is on the screen, and have nothing to do with ambient light conditions.   Is this normal?  I'm guessing it's some kind of power-saving "feature" that dims the backlight when less overall brightness is needed, but I can't find any setting that makes any difference to it.  It's a bit annoying.

The trackpad might break me here... it's absolutely terrible if you're the kind of user that likes to use single finger click and two finger right click exclusively. You can set it up for this behaviour but it basically disables the entire bottom third of the trackpad.

A:Lenovo Yoga 900S - trackpad behavior

Are there tactile click locations for left and right click in the bottom corners?  Or is it totally "tap" sensing?  Mine shipped out yesterday and this was one of my concerns.  Another option that just went on sale, the ThinkPad X1 Tablet, has dedicated buttons like a traditional ThinkPad.  It's much pricier for the same hardware, though, and I like the Yoga flexibility compared to a Surface type setup.

If I press any button laptop wakes up and all things are working great Until Restart when same loop occures.Trying upgrade bios from v1.07 to latest V38 (2.06) but as soon as insyde flasher starts flashing bios (erase/write) windows is restarted (without allowing flasher to finish I THING) causing the same loop to occure. After many restarts without proper post a message appear which states that the bios was not correct for that model.

Hello everybody,I have a slightly obscure problem with my fan which occurred for the first time about a week ago then again twice today.  The problem is that my fan suddenly goes to full speed only to immediately afterward die entirely, then it sounds like he tries to recover but quickly goes to full speed and the whole process repeats. One cycle takes about 5 Sec. and it keeps doing this even if I reboot in between. After quite some repetitions (i guess of order 20-30) he keeps running on the highest stable fan speed for a few minutes and then shuts down, which seems to be indefinite. The first time happened while running Windows whereas the other two times happened within Linux, in neither case high fan speed was required (typing or surfing where all activities). In Linux, i have XSensors installed which allows accessing some fan speed data. It turns out that the full speed bursts are depicted by 65535 RPM which then goes down to 0 RPM. The permanent highspeed state was once at 9500 RPM and the other time at 7800 RPM. It seems that 7800 RPM runs longer than 9500 RPM before it drops to 0 RPM and stays there.  There is nothing specifically which I could identify as an origin of this behavior, but since this is my working machine I am seriously worried. Also the sound it makes in the initial "burst"-phase really is annoying. I really have no clue what to do so any help is welcome. Thanks a lot in advance,Michael

Hello folks, so far I really like the Yoga 720 but I have this really strange problem when I'm drawing on the screen. Every time I draw slowly (and sometimes even when I draw quickly) my lines become jittery and not in the wobbly sense. More in the "leaving-the-road" kind of way. Here is a video proof of my issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyrS63BTJ6AI really want to use this tablet for drawing but this annoys the hell out of me. Is this normal? Is it a driver problem?I already uninstalled and reinstalled the Wacom Pen Driver and I checked the box "Ignore touch input when I'm using pen" in the Windows Ink menu.I'm having the 1080p HD Model of the Yoga 720 15 Inch with the 256 gb SSD. The pen I'm using is the active Pen 2 which feels really nice with the rubber tip. I used all kinds of applications like Photoshop, Sketchbook Pro, Windows Ink sketch, Sketchable and so on. I have the same problem in all of them.Can anyone please help me? I really like this tablet. Greetings

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

Hi guys,
I'm running Vista Home & have been experiencing increasingly annoying mouse issues with both Firefox & Chrome browsers.  Opening & closing pages takes a random number of click (same with minimizing).  Highlighting sometimes turns the screen light blue.  Cut/copying is almost impossible due to the inability to highlight the desired area.
I have found malware (windows installer.exe) and removed it with Malwarebytes.  This seems to have eased the severity of the issues but not illiminated them.
I know that your instructions are to not run GMER or ComboFix but I learned that after running them , so I do have the logs.

Hello fellow Vista users.

I have a question regarding usb. Yesterday I inserted my usb flash stick in my computer to connect with my wireless router.

I had internet for a whole day when all of a sudden my connection was gone. At first I thought it could of been that the usb stick is broken, so I went out and got a new one. Plugged that one in and the same thing happens.

Every time I plug it into my pc I hear the sound that Vista makes when a device is not recognized. I installed all the drivers and everything was working fine 2 days ago.

I'm now using my old usb connector and it's working great. I tried all the usb connectors but all of them make the sound when a device is not recognized.

I really hope someone can solve this for me, I'd like to use my new hardware at it's fullest.

P.S. I'm running on Windows Vista Ultimate x64 with SP1 applied with the latest patches and updates.

good morning

I spent the weekend upgrading my PC's from win 7 to win 10. the 1st one had some issues after the upgrade, but most have been solved. 2 of the other 3 went fine and all seem to be working as expected.

the last one, and the most important one, has lots of issues

only one user account made it through the upgrade, the rest are still on disk but not in the users group

the network did not work, and any settings changes made would not stick until about 4 or 5 reboots

the upgrade did not find my 2nd raid as it did not have drivers for it, once I installed the drivers I have its drives in 2 places in explorer, This PC, and Desktop.

Quicken Home and Business 2011 gives and administrator account error on start, it works only partially, very slowly and without the mouse. this works fine on the laptop with Quicken and Windows 10.

I have 2 scenarios I can think of,
1. keep fighting these and other less critical problem until Windows 10 works correctly
2. restore the PC from an Acronis backup I did before the upgrade and start again.

if I restore this PC back to Windows 7 from a backup, will Microsoft have any issues with doing the upgrade again? It would be a lot easier than a rollback inside WIndows 10.

many people are having issues with Quicken and Windows 10, and so far I have not found a solution. the account that did make it through the upgrade is my main account, and it has administrator privileges so "run as administrator" is not needed. I took ... Read more

recently i am experiencing strange problems.
it started with my vista 32 so i formatted and reinstalled,
then it came back and now it's occurring on my XP SP3.

under vista i used to log off and my computer went into "power saving mode" and stayed there, moving the mouse or pressing the keyboard had no effect, the screen would remain black. then i would restart my computer and there would be no boot screen just the message "power save mode" and then after two three minutes the screen would turn on and my desktop gets visible.

now under xp (happened after a week of use) when i restart my computer it also goes into power save mode and the screen remains black thru the entire boot process (very annoying).
from time to time i do get to see the windows login logo,the problem comes and goes,
any idea what it could be?

my montor is:
lg L226WTQ

and i have Asus geforce 7950GT graphic card
with nvidia 178.24 driver

Hello everyone. I was attempting to install Mcafee Suite, and kept getting redirected to porn. They said on their page to do a stack dump and some other stuff, and it screwed things up. So I did a system restore, going back about 2 months. Now system restore, help, Media Player, and probably other stuff has disappeared. I still have the icons, but nothing works. I poked around a bit, and found alot of files with $ signs before and after the file name. I don't have an XP disk to reinstall. Thanks in advance for helping me out.

Have you performed any anti-spyware scans? Have you tried doing your scans in "Safe Mode"? Are you doing scans while logged into the "Administrator Account" or an "account with administrator privileges"? You need to start there first. If rescanning in Safe Modes does not help, then do this:Perform an Online Virus Scan like BitDefender.(These require Internet Explorer to work. Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component. If given the option, choose "Quarantine" instead of delete.)Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop. DO NOT use yet. Please download and install SUPERAntiSpyware FreeDouble-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates".

Ok, so let me start off with my spec:

Windows 7 Pro X64
Intel I7
16GB Ram
NVidia GeForce GTX 750ti (latest driver)
liquid cooled core
1 x SSD
1 x HDD (storage)

Now my PC is custom a year old, the OS was done by me. I have had no issues until this error started, no new hardware installed, it started about 2 months ago.

So the issue, my PC will randomly restart, you could be mid email or opening Google chrome (this is important and I will come back to this later) the Event log shows an error ID of 41, which is "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first" no other logs, so not much use there, so I don't think this points to an OS issue

so what have I done?

-had the PC sent back to the shop they stress tested it, and all tests came back as no issues

-I imaged the SSD and HDD using Acronis replaced both drives, random restart still happens

-ran both chkdsk /f C: and Memory Diagnostic tool, both fine

-unplugged all USB devices and changed keyboard and mouse

after all this it still restarts, it could do nothing for 3 days, then restart 5 times in one day.

now I know you will say its overheating... nope the core is a steady 50?C - 65?C (which is optimal)

So it really doesn't like Google Chrome, if I open it, it will restart the PC 5 out of 10 times, almost instantly within a second of chrome opening. using internet explorer it still restarts but not as much. it has restarted using Adobe also

I am a decent tech... Read more

Dell inspiron 4100 laptop Intel 1.1mhz, 384 ram, 20 gb hd XP Pro SP 2

Whether I boot into safe mode or regular, two problems come up every time.
First, the system will not allow me to set default applications. When I try, via set program defaults, the status bar indicating the computer is setting the default application comes up and hangs about 90% of the way through and not change in default application happens.
Second, With every boot up I have to manually check the show quick launch box in taskbar properties.
Third, this just happened while writing this post, pressing shift and quotation mark caused Firefox 1.5 to go back a page.

I have found no viruses or spyware on the computer.

Any ideas how to correct these problems short of reformatting the HAD.

Days ago, I noticed that all my .html files turned into an unidentified file icons, it used to show my browser's icon (my internet browser is Opera) so it used to show opera's icon but now instead of showing the browser's icon, it is showing as an unidentified file icon. When I tried connecting my ipod to my laptop, it didn't recognize my ipod so I did what is written in here http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1363. Later when I did another try, it does recognize my ipod but when it actually brought me to itunes, I can see the word 'hijack' on the search bar in itunes then later it went blank again like the normal search bar. Since then, I experienced weird things happening to my browser. Like today when I click on one of my html files, it brings me to my browser but shows me some error which never happened before in the past then it opens another 2 browser tabs with the address: www.and.com and www.settings.comWhen I was browsing the internet earlier, it messed up my browser settings. Like it changed my bookmarks and shortcuts to the websites that I never visit. After that I had to close my browser. Later when I click on my browser again, it goes back to my normal settings. So I am wondering if this is normal? or am I infected by some browser hijacker or something?I hope someone could help me with this.

When I restarted the computer it stopped at the same place during the boot,found another strange name(ie: zpj2x4.exe) in the task box and in the Run Once key in the registry....I went to the Windows folder and deleted all the strange .exe files and now the computer boots O.K. Does this activity ring any bells for anyone as to what virus-worm or trojan whatever might be causing this.I have checked the viruses listed at Trendmicro for this type of activity and could find none....

If you could use paragraphs next time its alot easier on the eye.

and try these steps after you eventually boot into desktop.

Before doing anything turn of system restore
My computer > Control Panel > System > System Restore Tab > Check Turn off system restore on all Drives

When your done dont forget to turn it back on

1)Go to Online Av Scan And run a free anti-virus test

2)Then dowload ad-aware
Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by clicking on "Check for updates now", connect.

Click on Start, Use custom scanning options, Customize.

Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"

"Scan within archives"
"Scan active processes"
"Scan registry"
"Deep scan registry"
"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL"
"Scan my host-file"

Click on Tweak,
Select scanning engine and click on "Unload recognized processes during scanning"
Select cleaning engine and click on "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

Then click "proceed" to save your settings.

Click on Next

Run the scan and fix everything.


3)Then get Spybot S&D to clear remaining spyware.

I tried to launch a game today, but less then a minute in, the game crashes and the systems bluescreens. This happened twice in a row.

During the restart, unusual pixels appear in the BIOS splash, red squares before the windows logo appears, and then green vertical bars during the windows load, followed by a bluescreen. Then happened multiple times (even after system was powered down, and psu shut off). These startup colors didnt appear every time, however if I got into windows, it was quite unstable and bluescreened in less then 5 mins.

Hi all
First post, so hello everyone,

I have a basic mp3 player ( ALBA ) 1 gb. The player works well and I've had it nearly 6 years.

But when I connect it to my laptop (running Vista Ultra) via usb and format it there's 996mb of free space.

Lately when adding an audiobook which is, say 185mb long, it will only load two thirds of the audiobook and a small window appears saying can't create no.178 (or stops transfering at 178 when theres 240 parts to the audiobook.

Another strange thing is that I've had "Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows" (995mbs) on the player and it loaded without a hitch. (May have been magically shortened to get it all on) some how I don't think thats the case.

But why does it accept a large audiobook and then wont even accept just over 100 mbs.

I was thinking that the formatting application on Vista is at fault.

Any ideas on this one please.

Hi all,

At our work we run a WPAD script as a proxy for all users.

There's an Active Directory group that gives restricted internet access to domain accounts by tying a filter in our web filtering product to that AD group.

I have an issue where one of our IT guys logged onto a Windows XP machine using his domain account. He then switched to the local Administrator account.

He put the URL to the WPAD.dat file in his proxy settings in Internet Explorer. He was then able to access the external internet, but without having to provide a domain account/password after authenticating with the Admin account. So, he logs into a machine using a domain account, while logged in he changes his login to the local Administrator account, then he gets on the internet.

Now, what's strange about this (to me at least) is that we follow standard default-deny practice (if you're not a member of an AD group tied to a filter, you get blocked). The reason he was able to get on the internet was because that restricted internet access group in AD was applied to the local Admin account after he logged into it, thus the web filter allowed him through to the net. This should not be happening, right? A global AD group shouldn't be randomly applied to a local, machine-based account, even if it is Administrator (no local Admin accounts on any machine are members of that group, only domain accounts).

Is this an example of privilege escalation, or am I missing something here?

I posted in this forum a few months ago. My old computer crashed and so I moved on to this computer. It used to be my aunt's so it was passed down to me since my last computer messed up. I share it with my brother who could care less about trying to keep the computer safe.
It's super slow and pops up a black window at the start-up but I cannot determine what it says. I've run MalwareBytes and it deleted a few things. Spybot finds numerous things but never can delete it. It states that there's something with Bear Share (ugh!) but I went through the old files and deleted everything related to BearShare... or so I think. I need help figuring out what's going on with this slow machine! Please?

Hey guys,

I posted another thread about my friends computer and I ran into trouble with my own.

My computer is acting really strange. For a couple of weeks my computer kept freezing. In-game, during normal operations in windows and even in BIOS and other test software using a USB-stick (outside of Windows)

Now for at least 2 weeks straight the computer funtioned like a dream with no freezes and everything working real smooth. Just now like 10 minutes ago it froze in-game and didn't respond. After a hard shutdown, I waited 5 min and gave it another shot. The computer booted up and started running post but froze again. Another hard shutdown and 5min later still the same result.

When my computer functioned normally I ran, Memtest with no errors at all. I ran HDD test with 2 different types of software and I tried 2 different graphics card. My temps on the computer is really good so I doubt it could be that.

This computer hasn't been a good friend. It has cost me alot of failures over these 3 years from changing MOBOs, 2 Graphics cards and 2 memory sticks.

My first thought was that it could be the MOBO but I'm starting to think that it could be the PSU. Because if it delivered too much or too low power it could damage the hardware right?

Could you please give me your input on this

Best regards!

Now to the problem. Last week, my computer began acting strange. I would open up google.com in the newest version of firefox and any query I would search for, the browser would just sit there attempt to load and but never load anything. So google.com loads but it wont search for anything. Ive attempted to navigate through different websites. Some with success and some without. I belive there is a bug or something thats making this act up. What would be a good place to start. I've attempted to run Adaware with no results. Mcafee with no results. Spybot shows virtumonde but it does not delete. Thanks for any input. Hope everyone has a great week!

So I have an HP ExperssCard Digital/Anaglog TV Tuner for my laptop.

So the first thing I did after inserting it (and after installing the dirver of course) i went to windows media centre to setup the TV Signal. It worked fine, I have a analog cable source.

Then sometime later, it just said there was no signal coming into my device, which made no sense because the HP QuickPlay program could play the TV fine.

So now I go to resetup the TV Signal but it will ONLY look for a digital signal and it does not seem to be looking for my analog source at all.

Is there anyway to make it find this signal or why it would have just arbitraily stopped? i really can't rmember doing anything that would break this at all, and I am quite experienced with computers, just not with this program since I never had a tv tuner till now.

As noted in my profile running Windows 7 Professional and all was working well until a couple of days ago.  I upgraded my internet service through Comcast to 30 Mbps download speed, and initially was not seeing that speed on my PC.  I adjusted MTU on my router (Netgear WNDR3400 running DD-WRT) down from 1500 to 1450 and that seemed to allow the speed measured by Speedtest.com to go up to my anticipated 30Mbps. But almost immediately, I noticed while I could get email messages through my Comcast email account I could not get messages from my Charter mail account, and more worrisome is that I now have very limited ability to load websites...something seems to be re-directing the searches and the sites never load.  Some load OK (like Bleeping Computer (luckily ), but while speedtest.com won't load, I can load the speedtest on the Comcast site.
I ran MalwareBytes and removed a few problems, and tried to install Avast Free (had been using AVG regularly), but Avast says "Unable to start scan: there are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper".
Please evaluate these symptoms and let me know a next step to take.  Please also indicate if this should be posted and continued in another Forum...I wasn't sure where to begin so thought the Forum for my OS would be a logical starting point. 
Thanks for any help and suggestions.

Its been app 15-16 months since 1st stable Win 10 released. In this time period, I have faced a strange Win 10 behavior 3 times.

I dont know what triggers the behavior? No Windows Updates were there.

The strange behavior happened 3 times.
2 times - When I restarted the system, I got "Windows is getting ready, Dont turn off your system". The process took app 30-40 mins. After restart, Win 10 was back to default i.e all my data, programs were intact BUT Win 10 layout i.e every options/settings/Win 10 look was back to default i.e like you have just installed Win 10.

3rd time was today - I restarted the system & got "Windows is getting ready, Dont turn off your system". The process took app 30-40 mins. BUT this time, after restart, the system was like it was before the process i.e I dont notice any changes.

Any info on this?

sounds like it could be something as simple as rebuilding the MBR,
have you tried that ? It could be that that is where the bug is.
If you don't know the MBR commands just google them but resetting

about 5min to do and see if that clears it up ?

First off, Im looking for a way to fix this, so don't tell me to use another browser.

Here is the problem, IE has started acting very strange, many pages are no longer fully loading, some fail to load anything yet they claim they are "done". Other places, like TS and other msg boards will load but QUOTES appear as empty boxes and some lines of text won't show up either.

I have had this happening for almost a month and have tried Spybot, Adaware, and HijackThis. They are all fully up to date. I have also tried scanning for virii with fully updated NAV, as well as using every online scan I know of.

The problem seems isolated to IE, as it does not affect Firefox. I have reasons for needing to use IE for some things so I don't want to just give it up completely.

When I scan with this "Intelliscan", I get 9 infections or so. I don't really know who these "intelliscan" people are, so I'm assuming I can just ignore them.

Could this be the conflicker virus trying to enter? Is Norton's worth the money? Can I get just as good service with AVG free? Sure would appreciate some answers.
