    Problem with the EXPLORER Process, and internet browsing

    Locked

    by chronohawk ·

    I recently received a notice that I had the Vundo trojan. I took the necessary steps to take care of it. While I had this in my system, I noticed that when loading pages on Internet Explorer, or Firefox, the websites wouldn’t load, or would take an extremely long time to load. I’ve tried restarting my computer, resetting my connection, etc. Anyway, I think I’ve dealt with the trojan but the problem still exists. The strange thing about it is I was fiddling with Task manager, and I discovered that if I end explorer.exe, then the problem disapears. Of course once I restart the explorer process, the problem returns. I’ve done system restore a bunch of times, and I’d like to see if there are any alternatives to reformatting before I do that. Has anyone ever experienced something like this? Or have any ideas on what to do to fix the problem?
