I am using a custom PC (from a local store in a very rural area) with an Asus motherboard.
US Robotics 56K Modem
SBC-Yahoo DSL

In my Email, when I click a link, the system sometimes stops. The Browser goes into "not resonding" mode
I recently cleaned out a virus using advise from this site. I'm not sure SmitRem is entirely removed.
I have checked for spyware and viruses using the Yahoo anti-Spy and Mcafee.

Contact at Yahoo help suggested optimizing IE (the Yahoo Browser is a 'skin' over IE).
When using IE directly I get no connections by links, just a "dink" noise.
Using Yahoo Browser I can connect to some links some of the time.
I suspect IE is damaged?

Let's try to rule out malware. Please follow these instructions and after you post a hijack this log, I'll move it to the malware forum. :tazz:

Please Click here!, and follow the recommendations in the guide.

If you're still having trouble, We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool, Hijack This. Follow the instructions in step five of this guide, and post your log as a new topic in the Hijack This forum. It will get a better response there from the people most qualified to analyze logs.

Most of what Hijack This lists lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
