Locked

Internet Explorer

By k_grg ·
I have a strange effect which has been going on for some time. When I load a web page, my web browser locks up once the page has loaded for about 15 seconds. It then allows me to
continue navigating with links or scrolling down the page. I thought I had a virus but nothing has showed up and I also checked what was going on using
the task manager and looking at processes but I couldn't see anything
parasitic.

I suggest that you download and run Lavasoft's AdAware www.lavasoftusa.com

It sure sounds like a spy is sending data home.

If this is happening the very first time you open Internet Explorer, check to see if your computer is automatically trying to find proxy information.
