problem with pc

Hello,
I am having trouble with my Internet explorer.It is doing some very odd things.Sometimes it will completely close the page i am visiting for no reason or it will be very slow loading pages and when i say slow i mean very very very slow for eg i tried to google something and after 10 minutes of the page trying to load i gave up.I thought that it was perhaps the topic i was searching so i tried putting in random things to see if that made any difference but it didn't.Another problem i had was when i was on a forum and clicked on a link and nothing happened i tried to open a new tab and that wouldn't work either and it would let me access any options that are in my tools menu.i had to restart my computer.Just to let you know i have high speed Internet connection.Thanks in advance to anyone that helps me with this problem.

Re: problem with pc

sounds like you have a browser hijack.  use Hijackthis! from http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/index.php to create a logfile and either post it here for me to look at or send it to http://hjt.networktechs.com/ to automatically parse and tell you more about what your pc/browser is running in the background.  what version of IE do you have?

I know what's wrong.  You're using Internet Explorer wink .  Try Firefox or Opera

Re: problem with pc

There you go, reelgenius spotted the problem instantly. You're using Internet Explorer. Firefox would be the recommended browser of choice. It also means that you get to try the new GU search plugin big_smile How's that for user support?
