Angry Okay, Im going to hit my computer...

Ok, very obviously I think I have a virus on my computer. When I'm using internet explorer(don't laugh at me), if my mouse pointer isn't over a window it minimizes. This doesn't piss me off too much because so what, I usually read with the arrow neways.

What pisses me off is that IE keeps freezing up, if I hit CTRL+ALT+Delete the taskmanager window pops up and then instantly just goes away, closes itself. Samething happens with msconfig and regedit.

I have adaware, Spybot S&D, Browser HijackBlaster, AVG VirusControl, and McCaffee Personal Firewall. ANy ideas on how to get rid of this stuff. It's really annoying.

I can't, this is my dad's computer. I just use it. He doesn't want me changing to Firefox, last time I did he didn't like it and said IE was easier.

IE is plagued. microsoft leaked xp's source code. thats why there are breaches in security left and right. i honestly don't know how to fix it.

i'm goin to use some symoblism here..

when a car gets really old and breaks down constantly. some get rid of it and get a new car. others do some engine work and get it back up and running. however, its only a matter of time before its going to break down again. since getting a new car isnt an option.. better find a car mechanic or someone who really knows IE really well... aka.. not me. haha.

Haha, yea I realize that IE completely blows and with it my da's pc will die within the next year or so. Then he'll end up spending another 2 grand on something he only uses like 4 times a week and after 4 months it'll run like utter crap because of all the ****e on it. Then he'll have me try and fix it cuz I know about cars and electronics, so I must know about pc's right?

Do everything in that order and post results.

If you can run it in safe mode it will be even better. Make sure Spybot and Ad-Aware are updated.

After you have done all that you will use Hijack this and scan it and save the log file.

Send the log file to me. Do not fix anything until I till you what to check
