i think the biggest problem is opening new programs and swtiching between open programs ... like if im on aim and click over to my internet explorer window it takes like 4 mintues to load a window that was already open before and not even minimized. i used to to use mozilla firefox but recently that has just been shutting down while im using it without any warning ... if i hit alt and tab to change windows or to go between progams its as if my computer freezes for a few minutes before very slowly changing programs .. just thought id add a little more detial .. thank you in advance for all your help i have used this site once before a few years ago but im not sure what steps i took or exactly what information was needed anything else you need to know im glad to supply more info

thank you

Your computer IS infected, and also you're running McAfee, but there is number of Norton's leftovers.
