    Please download Lspfix
    Unzip and run it. Check all instances of inetadpt.dll (and nothing else) , and move them to the "Remove" pane.
    You will have to click the "I know what I'm doing" button.

    Have Hijack This fix all of the following by placing a check in the appropriate boxes and hitting fix checked. Make sure all browser and all Windows Explorer windows are closed before fixing.

    C:\WINNT\fash.exe
    C:\WINNT\mwsvm.exe
    C:\WINNT\system32\cdsm32.dl

    folder
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\slmss

    These may be hidden files. See HERE for how to show hidden files.

    Here is the new log, after doing what was instructed. Right after reboot, I was still getting one pop-up that came up off the screen. Its displayed on the taskbar as "loading". Most of the slow down seems to be taken care of. I have rebooted again, and the pop-up has yet to repeat. Please let me know if there is anything else that I need to do.

    Thanks for your help

    Hi Hesharu,

    I don't like the fact that these came back:

    Download VX2Finder from this link:

    Run Vx2Finder click on the *click to find VX2.BetterInternet* button. Then click *make log*.

    Copy and paste the contents of the log into your next reply here.

    Regards,

    Pieter
