Over the past two days, I notice a serious slowdown in opening IE and then very slow (15-20 seconds) in changing from one web page to another.
I ran Adaware, Spybot, cleaned the registry with JV16, and defragged the disk. I am running a P4 at 2Ghz, 512Ram, 80G drive, 50% free. my DSL line speed is above average.
My system was clean, but apparently I picked up "Beyond.class Trojan.ByteVerify" Norton was kind enough today to find and remove this even though it got through two firewalls. Now, I don't find much difference, it is still slow.
I am running under XP-SP2, but have not updated for several weeks. After trying all above, I installed the latest updates which totally corrupted the system so I did a system restore to yesterday (God bless it!) and I am back to normal, except I still have the web slowdown.
I have run a Hijack This, but don't know if I should post it here.
I am a bit desparate, because the web is virtually useless to me.
HELP,
Reg

Here's the latest! Cleared cahes and all the obvious stuff, then ran a Panda Scan which froze on C:\I386\MSOBSHEL.dll
I used Ctrl-Alt-Del to exit Panda and IE. Now, with no processes running, I am showing 100% CPU used, 66% from IE
Have I been hijacked or what?
This is sent via a second computer on the same DSL connection
Help

Folks, this issue is solved. There was some spyware present (not the problem), but the ultimate solution was to replace Norton AntiVirus with something more system-friendly.
Thanks, and Good night!
