Please help.

I have a Acer Laptop (very high spec) and 1M broadband internet connection. Somehow my internet became very slow. I downloaded a spyware detector. I have Norton Antivirus. My MS firewall is working fine. The internet service is fine becaus my desktop runs 1000 times better on the same connection. I am weary of downloading accelerators and stuff like that.

What can I do?

Sincerely
Superant

Hi, Some of those accelerators may contain spyware- to add to your trouble!

It would be best if you post a Hijackthis log:

There are directions here to do it: There are .zip form and .exe form, take your pick.

Download it here:

http://radiosplace.com/

Or here.

It's a direct download so be ready with the folder for it.

Basically, you create a new folder, the desktop is OK provided you make a folder on the desktop, name it something like HJT, and download TO that folder, run hijackthis.exe from there. Don't run just hijackthis.exe directly off the desktop. If there are users of the computer who might start HJT and use it, hide the program in a folder elsewhere, like make a folder right on C: or a new folder in My Documents or Program Files.

First open a reply here in your thread to have it ready.
Run Hijackthis.exe, and
Select the "Scan and save a log" button...

When it is done scanning> the Save box will become available, save the log as hijackthis.txt which will open with Notepad. Hit the EDIT> Select All then the EDIT>Copy button at the top of your log, Go back to TSG, and click once in the blank reply space, then go to the top of your browser window and select EDIT>Paste.
Please do NOT use HJT yourself to remove anything, most of what it shows is good and needed by the system.
