Hi rogerm16

I see that you have two antiviruses; AVG and Symantec. Uninstall one of them, as two antiviruses will cause conflicts and slow down your system.

Please run HijackThis.

• Click on the button which says Main Menu, then Do a system scan only.
• Please wait for the scan to be completed.
• After the scan has completed, check the following entries.

Click on the button Fix checked

NOTE:: Close all browsers before fixing anything.

After that, reboot.

Does it help?
