Specs: Windows XP
My computer recently got the Redirecting virus. So I looked up online and used Combo Fix to get rid of it. Every since then, my computer start acting weird. mainly my IE i think.
1. after I turn on my computer and first run IE, it take about a whole min before IE window pop up. It used to be right away.
2. When I have a few IE windows open, sometimes it will all went away without any warning. lets say I have 5 windows/taps open, while I'm working on something, Boom, all windows disappeared.
3. IE tend to freeze a lot.
4. My computer freeze a lot too.. i think its because of IE, but I'm not sure.

Im not familiar with computers. Can anyone help?

Try installing Firefox ( if you are still using Internet
Explorer. It is far faster than internet explorer, and if you did not
have it installed currently then it should be unaffected by the
virus and work fine. (You can transfer bookmarks, favorites,
and history)

Thank you. But that will be my last choice. I would use fire fox.. but I don't want to ignore the problem. I still want the problem to be solved.

babielovah, that was a great answer. Firefox is just an alternative and not a cure and by the way, firefox is MUCH slower than IE7.

Now for your problem, try unhackme. Follow the beginners guide on the left of the download page. Run it untill the problems are gone, then you can uninstall it.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers
