I've been running virus scans and dled ad-aware and it's found a lot of stuff and deleted stuff (things i'm not so sure it should've deleted to be honest >.>) but my biggest problem besides CONSTANT POP UPS and SUPER SLOW/NON LOADING WEB, was my auto-updates for Windows was not working. I couldn't even update it manually. It'd constantly shut down. So I guess I've been fighting this thing for over a week now, and last night was the first time auto-update has popped up again, so that was a relief! My anti-virus has also installed the newest version and since I restarted, all is well except the loading of LJ is stillll taking a minute... but not nearly as bad as before. So hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to catch up on LJ and maybe catch some of my friends on MSN ^_^
Hope everyone is doing well!!! Miss you!!!!
