I downloaded and ran the list of links from Alan.
ccleaner found and fixed some stuff.
the other 3 spy and mal checks found nothing.
After that,things where interesting until I rebooted several times.
Now I'm using FFox, and going to trash Chrome. It keeps freezing.
Going to look into that Task Manager issue that Alan found, too.
Still having problems with Ebay.
It'll load (most times), but then if I try another search, it locks up.
