Just be on the safe side, update the software & run it to see if it finds any problems

Are you connected to the router with wires or wireless?
#11
Clear you cache and temp internet files... then try ctrl alt delete and click processes and see how many are running... looks out for processes using lots of memory...

are the pages only related to when you try to view on the internet , try a new home page like msm as it could be your suppliers internet page ,this has happened to me went on for about 2 weeks then got better also check your internet conection speed link below hope this helps .

Failing all this try running Internet Explorer without add-ons... right click desktop icon and choose the option... could be a dodgy addon

You have my condolences xxxx my Mum passed away in April so i know how you feel.
#21
Get a malware/spyware removal tool. It sounds like you have a trojan or some malware.

Get this SuperAntiSpyware from here - download, install, update the program and scan. It will take over an hour as an estimate - but you will probably find it removes a bunch of stuff. End results, faster browsing.

Good luck.
#22
You could try another browser like Firefox
#23
After reading this i thought i'd run Adaware,not run it for ages,170 infections detected so far:w00t:
#24
Also ccleaner is pretty good :

This is excellent.

Everyone should have it and run it regularly.

It is totally free, very effective, safe and recommended everywhere.

Go for it. :thumbsup:
