For the last few weeks I have noticed that my Internet Explorer runs very slow. I am using Windows XP. It seems to run even slower late at night (early am) for no apparaent reason. I have been using Spybot and Ad-aware 6.0for several weeks (before the problem started). I use Mcafee Virus protection on the computer and no virus have shown up in scans (I also did an extra check on Panda).
I recently noticed something which I don't know if it is related (a while after the slowdown had already started), but in my email I was getting a few administration email messages of returned email whcih were emails I had not even sent. These were about 3 a day for about 3-4 days and have not happenned for a few days now.
We are running a linksys wireless router to a laptop in the home and it is very slow as well for about the same amount of time.
I will post my hijack list in case it is helpful since I really don't understand most of what is there.
If someone can help it would be greatly appreciated!!!

Caperjack,

Thanks for looking at the log.

I received a few more Mail Administrator email messages "mail system error returned mail"- which are messages that were supposedly sent by me to others that the addresses were no good. But I never sent these or the others that are coming back. Could it be that someone is using my email address to send spam? or worse- could someone actually be using my computer and sending out spam messages? Could this have anything to do with the slow Internet Explorer problem?
Should I repost this as a seperate problem?
thanks.

Hi Zachery,

Thanks for responding. I do delete the Temporary Internet files once in a while. I did check the Temporary Internet files folder setting (on which I had never been) and it said" amount of disk space to use 124 Mb". Is this what you were asking me?
Thanks again.

Yes, change it to 50 mb and save,

Might wanna run a defrag as well for preformance in generals sake :)

Zachery,

I did change it to 50 but it did not seem to make much difference. It just seems so strange to have the internet speed running slow.

Your HJT log does look clean (but by the way: HJT logs should only be posted in our Security forum).

Your Internet slowdown could be due to a number of reasons, some of them beyond your control.

How are you connected to the Net (cable, DSL, dial-up, etc.)?
Who is your Internet Service Provider??

It isn't uncommon to see your Net browsing speed in general bog down at certain hours; remember- most people in your particular time zone might be fast asleep, but thousands or millions of people a few hours ahead of or behind you might be logging in at the time when you experience the slowdown. If you're using one of the larger ISPs, this can put quite a load on their infrastructure.

In terms of the "returned" administrative emails: DO NOT open them! Just delete them if you know they aren't in response to anything you've sent. Those are bogus/forged messages used to transport viruses and other nasties.

If one of your machine is hit by a virus (suspect laptop) the Internet connection could slow down to a crawl. This because the virus (especially the recent ones) generates tonnes of outgoing connections to random nodes on the Internet to try and propagate itself.

DMR,

Thanks for your reply. I use cable to get on the internet and have been used to quick speed. The slow down seemed to occurr in a short amount of time (as opposed to gradually over lots of time). I have Cox communications as our provider.
Thanks for the comment about the returned messages. I usually just delete them and will definitely continue to do so.
