When ever I open internet explorer there is a major slowdown (am running a
cable modem for internet access). I have found that by opening up task
manager and stopping 3 of the processes it works well for awhile but then
those processes come back. AVG has identified these as Trojan horse
downloader generic and says they deleted the files but they keep coming
back. they are opdo.exe , dexplorer.exe , and !update.exe . is there any way
to get rid of these so they do not come back.


thanks in advance

Tim

Try running AVG in 'Safe' mode (tap the F8 key as the PC starts up, use
arrow keys to highlight 'Safe Mode' then press the Enter key)

Go to Control Panel/Add Remove programs and remove any dodgy installs (Date
managers, Search bars, Casinos etc)

Then get :
Ad-Aware
Spybot Search and Destroy
Spyware Blaster
(just google for them)

Install, update and run, do mind you get the one's quoted and not one of the
dozens of nearly the same rip offs that either reinfest your machine of want
$$$$ to clean it up.

Best luck
Paul.

If you have an NT OS you could turn them off under administrative
tool/services.

You got to find it yourself a hidden process is piggy backing off of another
process and are bringing them back.

Process Explorer may help you find the process.

You right-click on a process in the Upper Pane and select Properties and PE
will tell you everything about the running process.

You go to Menu/View/Show Lower Pane/Show all DLL(s) and PE will show you
everything that's running with a process.

You can right-click in the Lower Pane too.

PE and other tools you can used are discussed in the link below.

You may spot something.
