I have two questions:

1.) I have window ME and whenever I open up Internet Explorer (I have version 6.0) I can only go to 1 or 2 websites before it freezes up. In order to use my computer again I have to use ctrl + alt + delete and end program now. Sometimes I have to restart windows explorer or even the computer. I have run a scan disk and online virus scanner with nothing showing up. I also defragged my hard drive to no avail either. Any ideas as to what this could be??

2.) I recently downloaded a screensaver and when I installed it a picture ad for the website appears on my start-up screen before Windows starts, but after the Welcome to Windows ME screen appears. I got rid of the screensaver but the ad is still showing up. Any ideas how to get rid of it?

Also, just in case you were wondering, the problem with internet explorer started happening before I downloaded the screen saver. That is the only thing I have installed on my computer in the last 3 months.

Any help on either question would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris

Create a permanent folder on your hard drive for Hijackthis, like My Documents\HJT
Click on this link: http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/HijackThis.exe and "Save" hijackthis to the folder you have created.

Double click on the program to run hijackthis, click "scan" then click on "Save Log".

Post a copy back here and someone will be happy to review it.

Don't make any changes until instructed to do so.

Close all applications and browser windows before you click "fix checked".

Go to control panel, add/remove programs and remove Ebates_MoeMoneyMaker.

Restart in Safe Mode

Open Windows Explorer. Go to Tools, Folder Options and click on the View tab.
Make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked.
Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files".
Now click "Apply to all folders", Click "Apply" then "OK"

Go to control panel, add/remove programs and remove Ebates_MoeMoneyMaker.

Delete these folders:
C:\PROGRAM FILES\TOOLBAR
C:\PROGRAM FILES\EBATES_MOEMONEYMAKER
C:\WINDOWS\ALL USERS\APPLICATION DATA\SETUP

Reboot.

This file I'm not sure of C:\WINDOWS\SMSSle.exe
Do you know what it is?
