Problem with Web Browser or possibly internet

By japanto01 ·
When i first turn on my computer, the internet seems fine.

It works just fine until some point, when i try to use it again, it takes forever to load, or sometime just doesnt.

I use firefox and the bottom says
"Waiting for ......"
The right hand side shows the bar go half way through and it seems to stay there.

I dont understand what the problem is as i use trillian, but it works just fine.

I changed browser to chrome, IE, etc, and they all dont work for some reason.

Also some certain websites that i used to open cannot be opened even when it works fine.

Ok, so it works mostly. Some sites are still limited, but it works as normal speed at the entire time.

I have put back most of the services, until i found 1 service that does not say any manufacture.

Is it possible this thing is affecting?

Do you have a

by Jacky Howe In reply to Alright

Lexmark printer. If you have you can ignore it. If not remove it.

To check the Registry location for the offending file you can use Msconfig
Click Start and type msconfig and press Enter.
For the first suspicious item, expand the "Location" column to see where it is loading from in the registry.
Click on Start, Run, type "regedt32" and click OK.
Browse to the key listed in the "Location" column for Msconfig.
Delete the key on the right hand side only, that specifically matches that startup item. **See example below.**
Note the "Command" folder in Msconfig. Browse to this folder, and delete the .exe file itself. **See example below.**
In this example, the Startup Tab of Msconfig indicates that:
xyz.exe loads from Command "C:\WINDOWS\xyz.exe" and Location
In this case, we go to the registry editor and find that Run key on the left window. On the right hand Window pane you'll see each item in that Run key, specifically "xyz.exe" in this case. Delete the entry for "xyz.exe" in the registry only.
In addition, we'll browse to the C:\WINDOWS folder, and manually delete the xyz.exe file that resides there if it is still there.
Repeat these steps for each suspicious item.

"Some sites are still limited" what do you mean is there an error message.

Got sometihng else

by japanto01 In reply to This is the info on it

When i checked it on my internet, i came with the info that it was a malware instead of a legitimate program.

Nevermind, seems like it suddenly slowed down when i turned on a different service, ill try and find it.

Alright, found something called AGProtect. Malware remover recognizes this as a trojan. I deleted it again and again, but it keeps coming back when i restart the computer. (Deleted by registry editor)

Any idea?

Uninstall it

by Jacky Howe In reply to Weird

through Add Remove Programs but first download and install this. Let it update before using the internet.

I have been using Avast which is free for home use, you only have to register it.

About Windows firewall

by japanto01 In reply to Uninstall it

Does Avast take over windows firewall? When i tried to start it, i get an error saying that the system cannot find the file specified: Error 2.

Seems like i am unable to connect to internet suddenly.. It just says address not found. Nothing shows up on Network connections, what happened?

Did you remove

by Jacky Howe In reply to About Windows firewall

the old AntiVirus software before installing Avast. It should be removed before installing Avast. If you did or didn't then uninstall and reinstall Avast.
