Hello Phill
Is it possible to pick up were we left off as my PC now has a clean bill of health (malware removed) and I have learned a few lessons too? :) Thanks

Hi It's definitely a marked improvement :) it has however slowed a little since i added Windows Live Messenger :blush: which comes on at startup...yet i can't find it on the startup list :confused: it still freezes a tiny bit and has slow windows ( y' know when just the border of the window appears, I'm sure there must be a more concise way of putting it!)
But to conclude it's definitely a big improvement :woot:
Thank you

I would like you to run pcpitstop again, but not from your the program on your computer.

Hermes how.

You must use your Internet Explorer for this procedure. (doesn't work so well in Firefox or others). If your machine is running Vista or Windows 7, you must Select IE to “Run as Administrator”. After completing PCPitstop OverDrive you can close your IE browser and re-open it Normally so that you are no longer running as administrator.

Go to: http://www.pcpitstop.com Click on "Free Computer Check-up" listed below PC Pitstop OverDriveIn the User Login - Click on "Sign up FREE!"You'll need to submit a valid email address and create your own password, then click - Create Account(button)

Now enter your email address and password to Log in, Select - Scan this system Now!(button)You will then be asked to download an ActiveX component and allow it to install.It is safe and does not compromise your privacy.Follow the on-screen prompts to install the ActiveX and to allow the Full Tests to be run on your machine.

The Full Tests take about 2 1/2 - 3 minutes on most machines.When complete, a Results - Summary - Recommended Fixes will be displayed.

Please post the URL internet address, from your Results, back here into this Topic Thread so that we can review the configuration again and present performance levels of your machine.

Note: During the graphics 2D and graphics 3D testing, your screen will display some rapidly moving objects.If you are sensitive to visual flashing, it may cause dizziness. Therefore, look away from the screen during that portion of the testing.

While PCPitstop does offer a variety of Paid Products, the PCPitstop OverDrive testing is FREE. Please ignore the references to Paid Products. At WTT we prefer to provide manual solution instructions that you can apply directly to your machine.

To fix the IE security problem, try this
From Tools menu choose Internet Options, a dialog will appear.
Navigate to the Advanced tab, and under Security
uncheck: Check for publisher's certificare revocation and Check for server certificate revocation*

You may also receive another warning in the notification Bar, "internet explorer has blocked ActiveX control download", when you try to download the ActiveX control.
Right click in the Bar and choose, Allow.
