Windows 7: Problems Connecting to the Internet

Solved?

Well, it's been 4 days now and the biggest improvement seemed to be giving McAfee the boot. If we agree this is it, is Microsoft Security Essentials sufficient or do I need to look for something better?

There is not going to be an agreement on which antivirus app to use.
What's the Best Anti-virus?

You can stick with MSE and run Malwarebytes each day. If both show clean, then MSE works for you.

Wow, Malwarebytes every day? Thanks for all the help on here. It seems to be solved.

Or buy a copy of Malwarebytes and let it run all of the time :-)

Thanks for the advice on ClamWin. Now, I recently did an update for XP and followed it by a scan of my C- Drive. It came up with 4 Trojans in an oddball place. In any event, I manually looked for and either uninstalled or deleted the infected files. Is this the usual method or is there a way to get ClamWin to do it for you? It's nice of it to find it, but it would be nice if it helped you out too.
