Hi guys well if others saw me at work on the computer they would swear I am addicted to computers. Somtimes I miss important events LOL.
Anyway, I am limiting the use of my computer and taking frequent breaks.
But the reason I am here is my Presario S4210nx computer seems to have either preinstalled bad software or trojans. Internet Explorer stops responding and then I have to end program( send error messages to MS too).
I will be posting in your Malware section about the trojans and malware before I continue updating the computer at windows update(then defragging HD). Last time I defragged while updating Win update lost track of my updates?? Anyway Thank you for providing a place for us noobs to get help.
PS I am writing this on my gigabyte GA81945P-G PC as IE likes to cut out.

I downloaded the adware SE personal today will configure with the req add-on then follow rules for posting in hijack-this section to eliminate the posibility of any malware infections. Should I be doing a chkdsk /f before the defragging with my problems or just post about the IE problem first???
See you in hijack this section!!
