Hi all,

I am having trouble with Windows Explorer and IE running slow and then locking up. As long as my Internet connection is active both run slow and eventually IE will lock up at which time Windows Explorer will also be come very very slow or lock up. If I shut down the Internet connection Windows explorer runs just fine and all programs start up as fast as normal. I have run in the protected mode and all is well. I have always had an up to date anti-virus/firewall program running as well as all Windows updates applied. I just went through the complete list of Self-Help Topics suggested prior to posting here and did have some success at finding a few infections, which I removed. I am not sure if the problem is still as bad as it was because it will sometimes take me being totally involved with a project where I have 4 or 5 programs open and working with multiple IE windows/tabs along with Firefox and Opera when IE will suddenly lock up.

The last step in the Self-Help Topics is to run Hijack and post the results here. I am posting the Hijack results with the hope someone can look at them tell me if I still have some form of infection. Thanks you very much.
