Specs: Windows Vista

http://m.www.yahoo.com is a new variant of Yahoo front page. It's normal redirect if you type www.yahoo.com you will be redirected to the new version. Don't worry about that.

As for slow computer I suggest you to scan it with Spyware Doctor. Maybe there are some malware left undetected.

ignys, isn't spyware doctor just a trial and you have to pay to remove any infections?

debby, for your PC slowness there are some really good free fully functional cleaners on one page in my link for easy access (saves you looking for them)
You may want to try in this order:
1- Ccleaner Slim remove all it finds (helps speed up the next 2 scans)
2- Malwarebytes- update it and do a quick scan
3- Spybot S&D- update it and be sure to immunize.

XPUser,

Thanks so much, I am clean per the programs you told me to use and in the order you said to use them. I had no problems except alot of registry problems. Of all the programs downloaded and using norton internet security, should I keep any running in the background if they are?

you are very welcome. For the registry problems, click on the registry icon in Ccleaner and remove all it finds. It will safely clear out the problems.
You can also set the Ccleaner to run at start-up, I do that, cleans all the junk files and cookies out everytime you reboot your PC.

Another cool thing to use is Winpatrol, it will monitor everything that tries to load up on your PC and you can refuse or allow it...a great utility. Make sure you lock the file types.

Also you can see what is running at startup and remove it if it isn't necessary to run.
Good Luck
