Windows 7: Slow browser after virus removal

21 Sep 2012   #11

Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1

Finally back in, did learn alot from it. Ended up booting from Hiren's Bootcd which got me in to my OS repair. Ran mbrfix and tweaked some settings back and forth and finally, breakthrough.

Browser is back up to speed. Thanks for all your answers guys.

This is in no way a general solution for slow browsing. It was the result of a particular virus removal which affected MBR. Tweaking in this manner is probably walking on thin ice for most users (including me), I'm just too damn stubborn. Most issues can probably be fixed a lot easier.

After Virus Removal
After virus removal, this message has been popping up every time I start the computer. What do I do to restore these two DLL files? Startup repair has done nothing and I don't want to system restore because I just installed tons of drivers.
