Recently, I have removed various forms of malware including various variants of Win32 Trojans along with tracking cookies from my main pc. The tools used to accomplish this included SpyBot Search and Destroy, AVG 7.5, AVEST, SuperAntiSpyware, and HiJack This. Before using these tools, I could not get any page to actually load. Now, the pages are loading, but, very slowly. With this in mind, can anyone give me some suggestions for getting the speed back on Internet Explorer 6.0? I assume that the malware may have gone in and actually changed the configuration of the browswer itself, thus, explaining the lag time in loading pages. However, this is conjecture on my part.
Any shared advise and/or resourceful links to getting Internet Explorer 6.0 to start loading pages faster will greatly be appreciated. The OS in this situation is Windows XP Pro SP2. The ISP is AT & T Broadband DSL.
If further information is needed, please feel free to let me know. In the meantime, I will look forward to hearing from everyone.
