My wife and I were having alot of troubles with our computer and had found a couple of trojans. We couldnt get it right so we decided to do a system restore. We were told that it would completely wipe the hard drive and start over. We have been having IE and Outlook problems almost from the begining, just after we bought this computer (Emachine-T3265, purchased March 04).

The problems we were and are still having are as follows: When using IE and as an example go to our Yahoo mail, it loads the page, however, on the bottom it still says "loading" and the bar doesnt completely finish. We can see the page, but it doesnt seem to load properly or completely on the backend. Also, if we want to compose an email, the text box doesnt allow you to type anything. We didnt have this problem when we used Flashpeak Slimbrowser. It gives us this error message;

email compose
error: access denied
code: 0
url: mail.yahoo./ym/comose

Also if we go to start-control panel-add/remove programs, there are some icons on the side of the window going down. All we can see are the icons, there should be the word below each icon to let you know what that button is for. We are not able to update windows or Mcaffe either.They were there for about a day after we restored, but now are not.

We used the OEM restore disks, so we are not sure if there might be something with the registry or a trojan that didnt get wiped. All I know is we are extremly frutrated with this computer. I personally feel like some buck shot would be the cure. My wife wont let me. I am posting my hijckthis log and hopefully this will help. If anyone could pleeeease help, i would appreciate it. Thanks
