Hi again, i did 4 scans in safemode and nothing but a few cookies - but i did find out that yontoo was enabled again in add ons........ which was where the problems started.

Also it seems that iexplore is probably ok...... I've been reading about it, and like anything a virus can pretend to be it. Anyway so far so good, it hasn't slowed yet but it does seem to take a while. I'm hoping it was yontoo.

Well after 24hrs of checking, it seems it was just yontoo. All still fine !     Yontoo shows in control panel in safe mode but not in normal so i didn't see it here.

So any idea's what things i can get rid of running in the task manager please?

It depends on what you want to work, Michelle. I tend to stop help apps loading at startup (they often just serve to load the main app faster), I then go to the services tab in MSConfig and hide all MS services. Then I scroll through killing off what I don't want or need, eg the ATI hot key poller, Bonjour service, Isposure agent and so on. If something stops working, it's a moment to just turn that service on again.
Slainthe!
