very slow firefox page loads and email

Unread postby godivarides » October 16th, 2008, 12:48 am

Hi!

I've been helped here previously and unfortunately back with some issues.

I transitioned from IE to Firefox, initially it was quite a bit faster, then slowed down. Recently I've been doing a great amount of research on blogs and searching through monster/workopolis/careerbuilder. It seemed to begin when I emailed a job posting, because AVAST freaked out with its virus siren. In the past, I cancelled the emails when this happened, this time I didn't.

It is very slow loading pages via Firefox - sometimes 5 minutes, sometimes it takes 2 minutes to open an email in my inbox.

I've run Xoftcopy, SuperAnti-Spyware, Spyware Guard and Malwarebytes anti-spyware - nothing shows up. Each night as scheduled Spyware Terminator runs - nothing shows up; Scotty's on Patrol and nothing shows up; ZoneAlarm isn't ringing.

I'm running a thorough diagnostic via AVAST - it's barely 1% through, running over 5 hours now.

Prior to this posting, I read the posting about slow computers - disabled a few startups, indexing and dns, plus I've defragged and cleaned disk - all to no avail. I'm wondering if there is a conflict between IE and firefox? After being unable to access the internet with only IE installed, I'd prefer to keep both on my system .... just in case.

Here's my HJT file:

Sorry, this topic has been closed.

We're sorry you have not received a response to your topic. This is most likely because you have replied to your own topic prior to receiving a response from a helper. Our helpers are looking for topics with zero responses. When you post replies to your own topic, it no longer has zero responses, and so it appears that you have received help when in fact, you have not.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Malware Removal forum and wait for assistance. DO NOT reply to your own topic until you have received a response from a helper.

Thank you for your cooperation.
