  5. Hello I recently bought a FUJITSU LIFEBOOK LH531 (Intel Core i7-2640M CPU @2.80GHz, 8 GB RAM running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 x64) 2 months ago. TechExpress Link: http://www.pcpitstop.com/betapit/sec.asp?conid=24822315 1) Since 2 days the notebook has become too slow. The boot process is now taking 2-3 times longer. After booting opening any program takes ages. EVen when I click on START, the menu takes time to come. If I open a directory, the list of files takes a while to be populated. Webpages take their time to open. Even if I type, it is a while before the letter appears on
  6. Dear JonTom As I mentioned in my last post, I reinstalled FF - as you suggested - and all is OK now. Thanks for your help.
  7. Dear JonTom I re-installed the Firefox and all is good now. However: Enclosed ComboFix log & a screenshot of what appears when I search from the addressbar with FireFox.

  10. Dear JonTom Below is the OTL log. For some reason, only 1 file - OTL.txt was created. I looked on c: but did not find the other file, you had earlier mentioned. Thanks for help.

  11. Dear JonTom FInally I was agan able to check - and there is no change. The search results still come from www.search-results.com. If we cannot get to the bottom of this, is this a problem? Thanks
  12. Dear JonTom Thanks for advice. Enquiry did not result in anything, probably language issues. Please keep the topic alive for 2-3 days when I will be back & check from our normal location - and update you. Regards
  13. Dear JonTom I had posted the log earlier. The situation is: now when I try a search term in the address bar, the browser tries to connect to some http://search.hotspotshield.com and after some time gives a message: The connection has timed out The server at search.hotspotshield.com is taking too long to respond. I am not sure if this is imporvement because earlier I was gettong connectedto search-results.com, but now the ffort is to connect to hotspotshield. Maybe it is the hotel IP policy, where I am now Regards
  14. Dear JonTom Thanks for your help. I am ow in China, so IP is correct. I enclose the log, but cannot check computer behavior because my hotel IP policy does not allow this. Will try to check in few hours from outside.
