Hi everyone, been having a few problems and can't sort them out so thought I'd come to you for help. Earlier today while I was typing out an e-mail, I noticed there was a slight delay on the letters coming up on the screen. I then went onto google, typed something into the search engine, and still there was a delay. The delay is also affecting MSN Messenger. It's not just a typing delay though, when I'm scrolling down webpages there seems to be a delay/it seems to stick, if that makes sense. Same when I try move around a browser or MSN Messenger window. I've scanned for viruses using AVG, done scans for spyware/trojans using Spysweeper, Ad-aware, PestPatrol, Spyware Doctor and Ewido, deleted all temporary internet files (including offline content) and cookies, cleared my history, and I've defragmented twice... yet the problem remains. Anyone got any idea what the problem could be and how I could sort it?

Thank you in advance.

In IE click Tools > Internet Options > General tab > Acessibility

See if there is a stylesheet selected.
If so uncheck it and post back with the name of the stylesheet.

It may be advisable to follow this route:

Post the HijackThis log in the Malware Removal forum. You can come back here if it doesn't get solved there.

Sounds like your system resources are being taxed.... run Task Manager (right-click system clock @ lower right corner - select Task Manager.

At lower part of the window, note the total number of Processes running & CPU usage percentile.

Under Processes tab, sort by highest to lowest CPU percentile to ID the potential process "hog". :tazz:

If you know how to remove startup files, I also recommend running msconfig...
