I have a problem that started about 2 weeks ago. Whenever i open my Internet Explorer 7, it will take about 5 minutes to load the website. (not one site in particular, any link i click on that will open a new window) It will say "connecting" at the bottom, but the browser is essentially frozen for 5 minutes.

Once it does go through, i can navigate just fine to other sites.

I also recently had a problem with viruses/malware/spyware (i am not sure of all the differences). I think i finally got "whataboutadog" to go away by deleting it from my list of trusted zones...but i also caught a win32.trojandropper and win32.trojandownloader.agent program on my AdAware scanner. I do not know if something like this could be causing the lag, but i have never had this problem before.

If anyone can help, please do! Thanks so much!
