Hi,

I have IE 6 and for the last two days it has not been working well.
Whenever I type in a search engine or information on websites etc etc and then click go or continue that is the point where IE will either stop responding or will become "sticky" it goes totally iffy. It sometimes will start responding after 10 seconds or so. My screensaver goes and I get a white screen, needing to press a button to return it.I've had a virus lately(not sure if that is relevant) which I have managed to disinfect completely. Windows explorer. exe was one of the files that was infected. I'm not sure whether I will be able to post this because of the problem described but here goes.

Have you tried going to Start > Settings > Control Panel and highlight Microsoft Internet Explorer and INternet Tools then click repair.
What Operating System are you running?

It is very likely that Win Explorer and IE uses some common .dll files and that they are corrupt because of the virus.

Is Win Explorer or Windows in general is giving you more errors since you have cleaned the virus?

You'll also want to do some housekeeping:

Go to Internet Options > General tab, Temporary Internet Files, and choose "delete files".

Also press "Delete History".

Now go to the Content tab > Autocomplete, and hit "Clear Forms".

Press OK. And Repairing IE is indeed a good next step.

Hi,

I have deleted temporary internet files,autocomplete and history and also repaired IE. All of which didn't make any difference. I previously had IE 5, I installed version 6 hoping that my solve it but no unfortunately.

My operating system is Windows ME.

I was told when my recent virus affected windows explorer.exe that i would need to replace it following the instructions on the microsoft knowledge site. This I followed and wonder if this might be the cause of IE problem.

Can someone please advise me what i should do?

Would you please do this:

Go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads.php#startup , and download 'Startuplist'.

Unzip, doubleclick it, and it will generate a text file that will list all running processes, all applications that are loaded automatically when you start Windows, and more.

Go to Edit > select all, copy it and post the contents here.

Your Startup log is far TOO trim:

I don't see an antivirus running, and no Scan Registry.

Thst means that Scan Registry isn't loading as Windows starts, and that you're not protected from viruses.

You need all of that to be running.

Did you uncheck those items in Msconfig/Startup just before running Startuplist, or have you been surfing the web and running your computer this way for a while?

If the latter, please RE-check all aforementioned items.

What I'd also do, is go to Internet Options > Temp. Internet Files > Settings > Show Objects, and examine all ActiveX objects you see there.

Are any objects there marked 'damaged', rightclick them, and choose remove.

Now rightclick each one in turn, chose 'properties', and check the Version tab.

If the company is anyone else but Macromedia, Apple, or Microsoft, rightclick the file, and choose 'remove'.

Hi Tony,

I found a damaged activex file and filtered out the rest not microsoft,macromedia etc.

i've looked in startup and I don't know what to select for the scan registry to run.

When i look at System configuration utility-General tab, I have now selective startup enabled and the following 5 boxes underneath that selected too.

I've made a new startup list here for you to look at and perhaps you can tell me now what needs to be enabled or disabled.

Thanks.

Man, do you have a lot of thrash starting up and running... :eek:

I'm amazed that your computer will even run the way it is.

Please do this:

Go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads.php#det , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please show us its contents.

Hijack This will allow us to easily remove the offending items.

Half the startup entries that were present in your Startuplist log, aren't there any more now.

In the first log you had a trojan: WinDSNX = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CRYPTUI.EXE

And some more spyware and dialers not present in the second log: UKVideo, MySearchbar, NewNet, and others.

It's very hard to offer advice if you keep showing us different things.

Tell you what:
Download Spybot - Search & Destroy

After installing, press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.

Next, go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds.

Next, take a second look at Msconfig/Startup, and uncheck all other unneccessary items.

Use Pacman's List of Startup Applications to determine what should stay and what can go.

Good luck,

Thanks for the recommendation, Rugrat. :D

But this isn't even about "expertise".

It's about methodically following advice, and reporting on your progress.

That's the only way to get anywhere

If you had read my postings thoroughly you would have known that they were not duplicates. The first posting was about sticky IE which was of an entirely different nature too problems with starting up.

:mad:
