Trying to help a family member. They say computer freezing a lot
and taking forever to switch sites on web. I'm not well versed on computers either and would appreciate any help I can get. Computer Pentium III (300), 56megs ram, msn is ISP and they had recently deleted the msn browser for the internet explorer browser.

Here is the StartupList:

There is some spyware: Netpal and Tinybar (sp.reg)

I'd start by doing the following:

Download Spybot - Search & Destroy

After installing, press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.

Next, go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds.

NOTE: SSD will sometimes not be able to remove all active components in the first 'run'.
In that case you will get a dialog asking you to run SSD at next start.
Click yes and reboot.
Subsequently SSD will come up before the system puts these components 'in use', and it will then be able to 'fix' the rest.


You would also benefit from trimming down your startup programs.

I would go to Start > Run > Msconfig, and uncheck everything but the absolutely necessary on the 'Startup' tab.

Then click OK, close Msconfig, and reboot.

You can use Pacman's List of Startup Applications to help you determine what should stay and what should go.


Good luck,
