I have experienced the Google Redirect virus on several occasions. Each time it was a nightmare to remove.
I am pleased I watched the video on your site, as it has given me something else to try If it happens again.
Each time I have contracted the Google Redirect virus (3 times in recent years!) I have ended up having to build my computer again from scratch.
It has taken me days to do as I have to find all my CDs/DVDs and licence keys to reinstall of my software.
My better half and children always get frustrated when she wants to access her Facebook account and the kids want to play their computer games.
The other thing that has slowed Internet Explorer down for me is when I have several tabs open with embedded videos in them (just like the video on your web page).
I sometimes get Adobe Flash Player Plugin crashes. The web browser slows down, then eventually grinds to a halt for several seconds before crashing.
I have to load up my web browser again, and there is no guarantee it won't happen again. I end up having to restart my computer, which seems to help.
Quite often, I use Web Proxy's. I think there is so much online identity theft that it is safer for me and my family to use one when online. I use Hide My Ass, which is straightforward to use.
I have used several web proxies over the years. On occasion, they slow down my web browser as it waits for a response from the Server, especially when it is during busy periods.
I also think having far too much software installed on your computer can slow down Internet Explorer and your PC in general.
When I rebuild my computer, I always try to minimize the number of software program's I put back on. Somehow we always end up installing stuff we hardly ever use.
My machine and Internet Explorer always seems to run faster after a rebuild.
