I'm having a very bothersome problem,

I start WoW and it runs fine, and over an hour or 2 its starts to get laggier and laggier,

Soon it becomes unbearable and i can't even move in-game

i run Ad-Aware SE Personal, and it finds Tracking Cookies, i remove them, running the scanner several times after that, checking

i run WoW, it runs fine, and it starts lagging again, i run Ad-Aware, bam, more tracking cookies,

Can anyone walk me through how to remove whatever is in my system that i can't find, that keeps putting these laggy tracking cookies in?

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
