I had a problem appear recently on my PC. Initially I noticed it was taking a long time for my PC to shut down. Then I ran all the scans, AV, Adaware and Spybot - several things were picked up, including a Trojan Eek I got rid of all those, but still it was taking a long time to shut down, and there was a certain sluggishness overall, with processor usage being over the top in my opinion.

What I did was reinstall IE7 (it didn't lose any of my settings, I just ran the .exe file again), and lo and behold, I was back to normal (well, OK, maybe I wasn't, nor ever will be, but my PC was! Big Grin ).

Might be worth a try Shirley?
Hi ya'll.
Taz, I use FF. The only thing I use IE for is to load my pics, and that's on the other computer (laptop here) 'cause that's where the camera dock is. FF is the second thing I installed, after AVG. Wink That's true with any new computer we get. lol

Miss Member, I've seen you post that before and am glad. I know that wouldn't be true for me. lol Smile I just don't care for IE since learning about FF years ago.

Ninth and Pete, I've never seen ya'll post what browser you use. I pictured both of you as FF users. Big Grin

So a big DUH while writing this. I checked the other computer and it's fine. Must be something I've picked up on here. I know the network connection is secure with a gobbledygook pw. lol I'll run more scans and reinstall FF. What's so strange is that it's only on eBay and no other sights. Confused Bizarre indeed!

Thanks all you wonderful Auctiva boardies. I love this place, our place! Wink I'll let ya know how it goes.
HA! You KNOW I'll never tell. Wink mmm let's see how I can help the guys out... it's not gender specific, is it Miss M? LOL
About Chicago, I wondered China town too with a puzzled expression. lol Somewhere I saw Chicago... maybe BC, or did I just dream it? hah

Pete, I figured it was like "a bunch of hogwash" Big Grin I ain't a Yankee, Southern born and bred. lol It's not offensive though. I love listening to people with accents talk, doesn't matter what kind. I could listen for hours, though I may or may not understand even half of it. Razz

My guess for Ninth - Aaron Smile

I've done everything I know to do and then some. eBay's loading now at least. Is still pretty slow though. Maybe I'll go hang out on the geek board and see what I can find. I'll fit in there like a square peg in a round hole. Big GrinBig GrinBig Grin
Hey Taz. Yeh, I did uninstall and reinstall it. As well as AVG and hmmm, something else that I don't remember now.

Scanning, there were a few spywares, no more than any usual unclean scan. I like those that come back with nothing. lol

Pete, I'd forgotten about Spybot so went and got it. I love that program and can't believe I forgot to put it on here.

Vista is an adjustment but nothing to do with whatever the problem is (hopefully 'was'). I dunno. Confused
Hi all. You are absolutely not going to believe this!

This is the second time I've been dumped into the playground on eBay. The first time, I saw it happen and got right back out.

I suppose I've been in the "playground" all this time I've been having problems because as soon as I got out of it (just before coming here), everything is as fast as it gets on there!!! I'm sooooo mad!!!! Mad

I have no desire to be in their stupid playground. grrrrrrr
THIS is where I play... well, on Ninth's POLL thread. lol
Oh I believe it! My ebay page keeps showing me that link 'checkout our new playground' or whatever it says. NO WAY...I'm afraid once I go in I'll never get out. I swear it amazes me that new users can actually buy things anymore. Not to mention the UGLY pages they've created--you go into your messages and can't even tell if it's been read or not, the white background is blah, the home page takes a few seconds to load (which is slow on high speed DSL) and you get the picture Mad
OK my rant is over...glad you got to the bottom of the problem.
Isn't that just crazy! It's given me the link you get to, and I agree... NO WAY! I'm just in awe that it dumped me in there like that (twice), though nothing should surprise me. I thought the pages just weren't fully loading, after it would take forEVER for it to partially load. Well, NO, that's how it looks I guess.

And the messages, I know. It tells me I have a message or 3 or 6, can't tell if it's been opened or not without going into it and I've already read them. WHY is it telling me I have new messages when I don't? rhetorical lol

Okay, off my soap box, for the moment anyway. Big Grin
Hey Pete! Good morning. Smile

Southern Belle... I picture that being like Miss Scarlet and that's sure not me. LOL Rebel is quite befitting. Wink

That playground, it's just the opposite! Eek Scary place to be!

Hope you have a happy day!

Miss M, I bet you're right about a rant thread would get more speaking up. lol Nikkii is my oldest granddaughter's name. Smile
