Anyone who has firefox knows how slow it is when loading the program, in the morning I used to start my pc then double click the firefox icon and then go back to bed for 15 min, thats how slow it was,
I got a really bad virus about 3 weeks ago, called watermark, after trying just about every spyware/virus remover on my pc, including system restore, I was starting to think about reinstalling windows, but I would lose months of data that would take too long to backup. Then I decided to uninstall internet explorer, that took some time to do becuase I had to go into every file to delete it, and after I deleted IE I would find another IE program on my pc, I got IE deleted completly off my pc. Right after I got rid of IE, my computer become faster, and now firefox loads up 10000% faster, takes about 5 sec for it to load, and its been like that since I got rid of IE. So...I think alot of problems are becuase of IE, I think IE promotes alot of spyware and virus, becuase ever since, my computer has had no problems, unlike before where I was at least once every week geting rid of some bug, small it might be was still slowing up my pc. I never used IE, but becuase im using Broadband, I belive that IE would be running no matter what, even if I canceled it in msconfig. So im just letting everyone know that IE could be the issue with alot of your pc problems,if your not comfortable uninstaing IE, then Dont. But I did I have had a dream pc ever since.
