    I Have a really weird problem with my internet.
    This may sound very strange but, when i click on a given link lets say something like this: http://google.co.uk the programe that i open it in seems to crash or freeze for a bit, it normally freezes and then comes back to normal but it does not bring up the page after it being frozen.

    So lets say someone sends me a link in MSN Messenger, i open it and then the whole computer freezes. same thing on websites. Which is very bad.

    Can anyone help me??

    Also forgot to add when i go to start/search/files or folders
    that freezes as well when i try and click on it. but then everything comes back to normal after a 1 min but it still doesn't bring up the actual search thing for me!

    Go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ , 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 copy & paste its contents to the forum.

    It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.
