  2. Hi, I'm using Malwarebytes Premium Home and lately noticed that my windows explorer is lagging terribly when opening folders, opening files or even just using arrow keys to move up and down a folder tree. I uninstalled Malwarebytes and now it's all smooth. Anyone else experiencing this problem? Any tips to fix it? Thanx
  3. I ran Adwcleaner. There were 41 issues. I accepted the recommendation for cleaning and rebooted. Windows mounts and I log on with my password, but the desktop does not appear. I ran task manager to get CMD. I can see my folders are still there and so are the WINDOWS directory, but the desktop does not appear. The mouse icon is the only thing that displays. I searched the forum, and found something similar for a WIN 8 OS but I have WIN 7 professional. It may take me a bit to turnaround responses.

  8. Hello! Thank you for reading my post. Unfourtunately, I've been victim of the "santa_svc" ransomware. I could revome it rapidly so it couldn't encrypt files. I did it manually, but, some residues remained and now I'm facing some problems. I'd like to think that this is the last part of this horrible malware. Since yesterday, I'm recieving this notification in Malwarebytes Anti-Malware tool: This message appears 3 times in a row every 4-5 minutes.These messages (threat) stop if "explorer.exe" is terminated. Terminating "explorer.exe" causes the usual response: desktop disappears.If "e
  9. Many people hate internet explorer. However, many others don't know why this piece of software is so hated. So for those of you who don't know why IE is hated so much, here is the explanation. - Internet Explorer 6 Internet explorer 6 is what made IE so hated in the first place. It was slow, clunky, slow, had terrible security, was really slow, had updates that added nothing, and did I mention it was slow? Not only that but it was a nightmere for web developers who couldn't program anything easily with it. IE 6's tyranny lasted for a while. But their was hope. A new browser named Firefox

  12. I have a Windows 7 Ultimate x64 system. Recently, about 1 or 2 months ago, I noticed there's a lag when I open any folder or choose my computer till contents are shown, but since my hard drive is nearly full I thought this might be the cause. Couple a days ago I noticed that my router's activity light is blinking like mad though I'm not downloading or uploading anything. I thought this may be any normal activity like windows update but the blinking went on for a while so I checked the ongoing internet connections & found out that Explorer.exe is trying to connect & mainly send data. I
  13. Hello, I have an annoying issue, I recently got rid of an annoying re-direct virus around 1-2 weeks ago. A day or two later I started noticing Internet Explorer (IE) as an active process in Task Manager, even though I did not have it actively pulled up. The name of the website also changed, and sometimes there were 3 or 4 different IE processes pulled up. Occasionally I would encounter audio ads. I was unable to try and end the process like you would normally end any program that was not responding or was slow to exit normally. I had to go to processes in order to exit the ads out, however wit
  14. Hi all, I'm having an issue with MBAM causing explorer to crash on a Win7 64 bit machine. I have a Synology NAS on my home network and have several folders on there mapped as drives in Windows. I have done every hardware and software troubleshooting thing I can think of and it appears to come down to the paid version of MBAM (it used to work fine when I was using just the free version). Here's what happens. Computer boots up fine, I can even explore the folders on the NAS. At some point, Explorer hangs and I am forced to close it using Task Manager. I then have to use Task Manager to start a
