    Hello one and all,

    My e-Machine is now about 2 1/2 years old. Always served me very well until about 6-8 weeks ago.

    Here's the problem: I'll "surf the net" (dial-up service) for an hour or two and then "disconnect" from the service when finished. I'll delete "cookies" and "history" too.

    Then when I try to to again "dial up" the computer will run verrrry slow, and at times will not responed at all. If I re-boot the computer will run fine.

    This making any sense ?!?!?

    Any ideas will be greatly appreciated ! !

    Possibly SpyWare or AdWare. You can get a free program called 'AdAware' that will clean all of the stuff that shouldn't be on your computer.......worth a shot at least.

    This WORKS... most anti-virus programs are not that concerned with spyware or adware...
