Ok this problem is driving me out of my mind.... I recently purchased a new i pod 30gig that plays videos as well and i need the most up to date version of i tunes for this i pod to work so i can transfer music to it no biggy so i download the latest i tunes and BAM i am hit with this version of i tunes requires Service pack 2 from Microsoft and i am like [bleep] i personally hate SP2 because in the past it slowed down my internet to slower than a snail it was absolutely ridiculous needless to say i wanted my i pod to work so i bit the bullet and downloaded sp2 installed it rebooted everything was fine put my music on my i pod yaddaa yadddaa yaddda and everything was fine my internet was a little slower but nothing drastic .... so the next day comes i turn my PC on and BAMMMMMMMMM it happened yet again my internet is so Fkin slow i am going out of my mind trying to fix it currently i am scanning for ad ware and viruses i had 2 minor viruses which i deleted and still it is incredibly slow you have no idea how long it took me 2 find this website and actually register and post this message ..... So here is the thing i know i can uninstall SP2 and the problem will be no more but here is the catch if i do that i can kiss i tunes goodbye and any further updates to my i pod so i am praying someone out there has gone through this problem and knows how to fix it....pleaaaseeeee thanks a million

Service packs should be installed on perfectly clean computers, so you may...

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
