    My explorer is to the point where it is super slow. It started when I got hijacked by the FBI Moneypak virus. I got into safe mode and downloaded malwarebytes and removed it. I then downloaded spyhunter 4 and ran a scan to double layer myself. All along my AVG didnt do much for me.

    I went back into normal mode in widows and my explorer just really dragged real bad. A friend recommended norton eraser. I ran that and it did detect 2 more bugs. I deleted those and everything seemed fine.

    No my issue has returned. I dont know if AVG is the problem and its dragging my explorer or if I have a hidden leach somewhere in my laptop. I opened my task manager and there were 5 "iexplore.exe *32" process running when I only had one explorer window open. So this is leading me to suspect that I still have a leach somewhere...

    Can Anyone assist, feedback, ideas???

    I certainly would appreciate it!
