    My internet connection is running slower and slower starting on or around the middle of March. Other functions of the computer don't seem to be affected. I ran all the antivirus programs, deleted cookies, did all the things I should do. I went to Manage Add-ons in Explorer just to see if anything had changed since I started noticing the slow down and there have been several new additions as of 03/13/2010 prior to that date was 11/09 and a change about every other month prior to that, but always the same programs, these are new. I have attached a PDF of the files, dates of use, status, ....

    I looked up each file and found that Act.UI.InternetExplorer.Plugins.AttachFile.CAttachFile along with any other pertaining to this name has been a problem for several people. They have suggested in different Forums that a HJT is needed. Is this true? If so, where do I go to find the correct program? I disabled any item that referred to Act.UI... and Explorer seems to be running better this morning, but it is still early and it usually starts to slow after a while.

    Also, when shutting down my system I have always had it set to Shut Down only now it continually changes to Shut Down and Update System. What is causing the change? and how do I stop it?

    I am accomplished in different programs, but not so in the actual programming of the system, so please be as direct in layman’s terms as possible. Thank you for help!!!
