Clean install is always best.
Will the clean install affect any of my data on my hard drive?
Yes, it will format your hard drive, which means you'll lose all data in your Windows. So I recommend making a back up of the files you want to keep.

Really guys. I think recommending a clean install to fix a browser connect issue is a bit extreme.

I did a clean install and I see a similar issue. I suspect ISP more than anything.

Ok, that is another interesting data point. But is that really the case or does it just seem that way.

Is any of those other machines a laptop. Can you put it next to your machine with the problem and then browse the same pages in the same browser on each.

I have the same issue spuriously, but I haven't it seen it much in days, so for myself anyway, I suspect ISP/internet issues (I only have one computer) .

one is a mac desktop on wireless and another is a macbook on wireless and the other is a macbook air on wireless. I can browse the same pages on the other computers with more speed even though speed test shows my wireless internet about......6mbps.

The PSI scanner software says normal stuff like firefox and adobe flash and skype are security threats. what should i do about them, just uninstall them?

You say "McAfee is usless" ... Did it come pre-installed on your computer and you didn't buy it?

Download Microsoft Security Essentials, right now http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ update and scan ... We'll get rid of McAfee in a bit.
Also download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop
http://majorgeeks.com/download5756.html
* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.

* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

* When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location. Copy and Paste that log into your next reply.



We will update all vulnerable programs in a bit.
