    I have noticed that my computer loses time and the cursor movement slows down after I have been on the internet for a while. I have run ad subtract, spybot and spyware blaster and eliminated all problems. I will attach my latest hijack this. The operating system is Windows ME with 40 G hard drive and 256RAM.

    Your startup list needs to be trimmed down. I can see at least 7 of them that can be disabled from starting up.

    Let's wait though until you post a new HijackThis log and Telecomm69 helps you with it.

    Do you have a firewall on your computer ?

    After Telecomm69 helps you with your log, do the following:

    Click Start - Run, type in MSCONFIG, then click OK - Startup(tab). Uncheck the following:

    iconfig.exe

    pctptt.exe

    em_exec.exe

    qttask.exe
    (Also, do a search for the QTTASK.EXE file, then delete it)

    cfd.exe

    mstask.exe

    loadpowerprofile
    (Uncheck both LOADPOWERPROFILE entries, only if you have the settings in Power Options in the Control Panel set to "Always On" and "Never" - which is a good idea)

    Once you finish, click Apply - OK, then reboot.

    You'll discover that having a leaner startup load will benefit your computer in many ways. (y)

    Thanks Telcom69...I have not yet done as you suggested but wanted to say that I do not have a Firewall in place. I was using Zone Labs Freeware but when I went to my wireless Linksys DSL it seemed to cause all kinds of problems. Do you have any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Why don't you give Sygate Personal Firewall 5.6.2808 a try?

    I'm not into wireless, so I don't know how it would work, compared to ZoneAlarm.

    Flavallee, thanks for the help. I went ahead and loaded Sygate and we'll see if it will work with the wireless DSL. I'll let you know.

    Flavallee, for your information the Sygate firewall did not work with my setup. I could stay on the internet for a few minutes and then everything would lock up. I could not even get out of it with control alt delete...I had to power down. I uninstalled it and all seems OK but I am exposed as you mentioned. i imagine it is a setting issue and I may persue it in the propper forum. Thanks for your help.

    I am still losing a little time but not near as bad as it was before.

    I might be old-fashioned, but I'll stick to a wired setup. Besides being more secure, it's less problematic with connections than a wireless setup.
