This is a very common problem so if you need help with IE read this

Now first you should make sure you have the most up to date version of internet exlorer. If you dont download from microsoft.com or automatic updates. There are two problems that this tutorial will take care of 1. IE slow loading pages 2. IE
hijacked by spyware.
1. Some times i have seen posts about IE not loading pages now to get rid of this you first want to scan using ad aware and spybot search and destroy. If this first attempt fails then try using zilla connection accelerator it config your system for the appropriate type of connection (ie:56k,DSL,cable,etc). Now if you are still loading pages slow you should goto start<all programs<accessories<System tools<System restore and restore it to a point before this problem started to occur(if possible) then restore. If the restore fails than try using another web browser like mozilla.
2. First off you have to scan with spybot S&D and ad aware to remove unwanted spyware. If this doesnt work try hijack this which i would not reccommend for people with little computer experience (if you do decide to use this then post your hijack this log on daniweb so someone with experience can read it). Now goto start<run and then type regedt32 now a list of folders will come up on the side the folders we will be looking at are HKEY_CURRENT_USER and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. In both these folders you will find subfolders expand the one named software and now scroll down the list and look for the name of the software that has hijacked your IE (ie:mysearchbar, navbar, etc...) nad right click the entry and click delete.
Now if all else fails try a system restore or just get a new browser with better security.

Hope this helps with any IE problems people are havng.
P.S. in sp2 internet explorer comes with better security so when that is officialy released make sure to update your system

Billy, since this is a tutorial, you probably shouldn't have invited people to post problems here -- more ideas and suggestions, yes, but problems should all be in their own thread.

Vino80, all HJT logs are supposed to be posted in the Security forum. Update your hijackthis to version 1.98.2 using either the Update feature in your current hjt, or by downloading it from here:

http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/x-Download-5034.html

Also, put it in it's own permanent folder (don't run it from your desktop). After you've updated it and put it in it's own folder, close all open browser windows and scan again. Post the new log in the security forum.

By the way, run Ad-Aware, Spybot, and an anti-virus program before you scan with HJT.

I meant like solutions to problems (especially not hijack this logs) and if you have the same problem that my tutorial suggests like vin08 did(he is a newb so any mods or uptight ppl cut him some slack) than you shouldn't have posted that.
