My computer has recently been acting up on me. It is incredibly slow to boot up, I often have to click several times to get a window open, and in Internet Explorer (or Firefox) I get an insane amount of popup/new windows - mainly media2.tmlatn.com and Nexplore, but there are others as well. Equally as frustrating is that just about every other button I press on the keyboard is not registering...it's taking me painstakingly long to type this - forgive any spelling errors I miss as a result of this. :-)
What have I done so far to remedy my problem:
1. Ran Norton Antivirus scan with the latest updates - found nothing
2. Downloaded PC Tools Spyware Doctor and paid the $30 license fee. Ran the scan, it found some things and eliminated/quarantined them
3. With both #1 and #2 above not solving my problem, went to the good ol' internet search and stumbled on this great site. I have spent the last 2 hours reading various posts and instructions. I was hoping to post my HiJackThis log for the users on this board to review, however, it will not open. I tried all of the suggested 'renaming' and relocating in different directories to no avail.
Could someone please help me get to a point where I can run a scan and post a log that is helpful in this forum? This computer has otherwise been great for me, so I'm hoping with a little more patience from myself and some expertise from you, I'll be good as new again.
Sincerely appreciate the help,
