I recently downloaded IE6. Since then I have been experiencing delayed typing when filling out the forms on web pages and very slow scrolling. This only happens on a few websites, like ebay and some shopping sites. I found a post from a person who was experiencing the same problems and tried to follow the same fix, however my "Hijack This" log does not look the same. Following is my log, any help would be greatly appreciated, I've been going nuts!!!

Welcome to TSG!

Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close all browser windows and "Fix checked"

Restart your computer.

Go here http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/ and download Adaware 6

Install the program and launch it.

I strongly recommend that you read the help file to familiarize yourself with the program.

Before running the scan look at the top of the main window and you will see a Gear Icon. This is where you configure the settings. Click on that and then in the next window that pops up click on the "Scanning" tab on the left side. Under "Drives and Folders" put a check by "Scan within archives" and below that under "Memory and Registry" put a check by all the options there.
The click on the "Tweak" tab and under "Scanning engine" put a check by "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then......under "Cleaning engine" put a ckeck by "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot" then click "Proceed"

I would also recommend that in the "Tweak" section there under "Web Update Settings" that you put a check by "Automatically look for updated reference files upon start" and "Always back up reference file before updating". This way it will automatically check for updates before you scan.

Next in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on "Check for updates now" and get the latest referencefiles.
After getting the latest referencefiles you are ready to scan.

Click "Start" and in the next window make sure "Active in depth scanning" is checked then click "Next" and the scan will begin.

When it is finished let it fix everything it finds.

Restart your computer.

Then go here http://spybot.eon.net.au/index.php?lang=en&page=download and download Spybot.

Install the program and launch it.

Before scanning press "Online" and "Search for Updates" .

Put a check mark at and install all updates.

Click "Check for Problems" and when the scan is finished let Spybot fix/remove all it finds.

Restart your computer.

Be sure and take advantage of the "Immunize" feature in Spybot.

Finally go here http://www.net-integration.net/cgi-bin/forum/ikonboard.cgi?;act=ST;f=38;t=3051 for info on how this happens and how to prevent future attacks.
On this page you will find a link to Javacool's SpywareBlaster. Get it and check for updates frequently.
The Immunize feature in Spybot used in conjunction with SpywareBlaster will go a long way toward keeping you spyware free.

Thanks to all the posters on this forum. It is the only place I found to find out about CoolwebSearch and how to dump it. I've had a slow working IE6 for days now and couldn't work it out.

How does it get into your PC in the first place? I've not knowingly downloaded anything recently.

Cheers

davef,

Continue to monitor this site and you will learn more about
computers and their systems than all the courses you could take.

Lots of good folks here...
