for the past few days, whenever I connect to the internet, my computer slows down and eventually completely freezes. If i disconnect from the internet, it starts working again! I have run a few virus scans (mcafee) and a few trojans were found and removed however the problem still exists. Based on another post from this forum, I installed the highjack tool and ran a log. Below is the results...anything look suspicious. Thanks in advance

Just a quick question - How much RAM do you have in your computer and do you visit websites that run large games or anything else like that.


thanks for your reply

i have .99GB of ram. I do not visit gamin website, just normal browsing. Note, my computer only hangs when I connect to the internet. And my browser is acting very strange...keeps redirecting me to different sites when I do a google search for example. No site inparticular...seems i get page cannot be displayed alot as well.


Ok... I'll see what I can dig up. It might take a day if I can think of anything.

PS...I can't make any guarantees and also, are you using wireless?


you are suppose to put hijack logs in the virus and spayware and other nasties section of daniweb for best help . there are a few possiable nasties in the log .


thanks very much. how can i move this to the virus and spayware and other nasties section of daniweb? Didnt realize i had posted in the wrong area...just put in in the same area where I saw other posts on this topic! - newbie move I guess!!


I'd Just start a new thread in that section and copy and paste your text in a new post. Ps. I'm a newbie too :)

They'll be able to help you better there.
