    Hi im currently running norton anti virus and lavasoft ad ware blocker and repairer .

    Unfortunatly when i look on the task manager i see 2 headings under IEXPLORER but im not running the internet explorer so i tried to close them down but they automaticly restart up under IDOLBL~1.EXE then IEXPLORER heading comes back up .

    I only noticed this as recently my laptop was reformatted as it had slowed down badly , for a while afterwards it was ok but now i seem to have major slow down again .
    When opening the internet it is very slow sometimes taking 5 mins to open 1 page , some of my programs also take along time to start thats if they even start .

    Has anyone got any ideas what this is or how to sort it ?

    I have tried run avasti antivirus several times but it wont open i also have run my adware program but nothing seems to stop this .

    Hi Shaharazad

    [tsg=welcome]Thanks, bandit429![/tsg]

    Could you please click the link below and get a panda online scan. At the end of the scan save the report and put it here in a post. Since your IE is so slow you will probably have to do this in safe mode with networking. To do this power off your computer...power on and immediately start tapping F8....use your arrow keys to make that menu choice and hit enter. It will look a little different but you should have more control.
