    Hello & Happy valentines 2 all...
    I'm running win98 my problem is the IE is running slower than molasses :( & I'm not sure why :confused:
    Iv ran Norton but it's not picking up on anything out of the norm
    Is there anything I may be able to do to speed things up around here???
    Any help would be sooo very appreciated :)

    SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
    AdAware SE 1.05 http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
    SpyBot S&D 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

    DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their
    definition updates
    and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything
    they say.

    In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
    SpyBot - After an update run immunize

    Do these and reboot before the next step.

    Then get HiJack This http://209.133.47.12/~merijn/files/HijackThis.exe , put
    it in a permanent folder (C:\HJT) , run it , DO NOT fix anything, post the
    log here.
