    Most websites not loading properly & very slow showing no images most of time, checked the usual stuff in tools/options,etc/show pics. Checked registry in hkey_classes_root\gif & jpg etc was ok. I tried a program called `speed dsl` & unistalled it cos it made things slower, don`t know if this was the problem or not. I have done a HiJack this log, for anybody`s perusal to help. All help greatly accepted. :confused: I have McAFEE security centre on for past 6 months no probs also Pestpatrol Corporate, & Microsoft antispyware on for months also.

    [​IMG] Unzip the hijackthis.exe file to a folder you create named C:\Program Files\HJT

    Please download HOSTER and then follow the below steps.
    • Unzip Hoster to a convenient folder such as C:\Hoster
    • Run Hoster.exe, click Restore Original Hosts and then click OK.
    • Click the X to exit the program.

    Now scan with HijackThis and Check the Boxes for the following:

    Make sure All Browser Windows are Closed when you Click FIX.

    Have done everything down to running CCleaner & Spybot, I have clicked on analyze in CCleaner & it is showing 3,898.7mb of files to delete, IS THIS Possible? so many. Before I click on `run clean` just want to make sure from you first!

    Yes its possible if you have never ran a cleaner like this. Procede with the Cleaning, it will give you some space and should make your machine a little faster.

    Same as before slow loading pages,some don`t even load, almost none showing pictures icons just red cross picked about 20 different ones out of favourites to try. Looks like the ones with flash load no problem. rest of computers still running ok fast ok. Just internet I have adsl broadband showing connection at 54mbps, I seem to remember trying a program called WeBooster 1.0 could this have any known problems etc. Attached is the HiJackthis log.

    Yes, if your on a DSL Connection you do not need something like that. Personally I dont recommend them because, my ISP will disconnect the service if you have anything trying to boost\tamper your speed/connection or if you have some type of activity like a virus/spyware infection. Not sure if DSL is like that or not, but personally I would uninstall that and reboot. Then see if that was your problem.

    Scan with HJT and have it fix these entries:

    O9 - Extra button: (no name) - SolidConverterPDF - (no file) (HKCU)

    O23 - Service: SNMP Service (SNMP) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\System32\snmp.exe (file missing)
    O23 - Service: SNMP Trap Service (SNMPTRAP) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\System32\snmptrap.exe (file missing)

    Be sure you close ALL browsers before clicking FIX

    internet is just about unusable on pc about 30% work, rest are rubbish & if I do a refresh it just comes up blank page or try to go to a linked page. Have attached latest HJT log for you to look at!
    Noticed the 2 (023 files you mentioned to fix or delete are still here!)

    Have HJT fix this entry:

    O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.windowsupdate.com

    Also, have you tried resetting the modem? If not, try this reboot and see if speed is better.

    Since this probably isnt Malware related, I would go ahead and post this in the Software or Networking Forum for best results. This sounds more like a Software problem but could however be hardware related.

    Good Luck!
