Ive been having problems with my internet browsers both IE and Firefox intermittently stalls. Ive tried everything. Ran virus scans on both ESET NOD32 and Microsoft Essentials. Ran Spybot, CHKDISK, Checked MS config and cant find anything out of the ordinary and nothing popped up indicating that ive been infected I even created a guest account to see if i can localize if the issue is user specific, and pretty much i encountered the same issue.

Im starting to wonder if its something corrupted on the OS, so far its just my web browser that i have issues with. I have 3 gig of memory so thats not the issue. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Running out of hairs to pull

Hi and welcome to the WTT forums.
We do not analyse HJt logs in this subforum so I have edited your post and uploaded your HJT (Beta) as an attachment ( if the search engines were to find it, it might encourage other folks to post their logs in this subforum and we don't want that)
Sorry to hear of the problems with your machine.If you think its possible that you have an infected computer, its best for you to have the machine checked out by a specialist malware fighter:
Go here: for directions and follow them carefully

The malware fighters over in the Infections Removal forum are pretty busy at the moment, as the number of folks in trouble, sometimes exceeds the number of trained advisers available.
However please be assured that they will get to your post as soon as they can.

It's important that you do not send a second or "follow up" post in the Infections Removal forum until you have received a response from them there (The malware fighters look first for posts with zero response).

If you are still having issues with your machine once its been checked for malware and declared clean, please post back here in this topic and we will do our best to help.
The help you receive here is free. If you wish to show your appreciation, then you may donate to help keep us online. http://www.whatthetech.com/donate

It may be the case that you have installed too many plugins in FF. I can only say about FF as i am also getting the same problem. But it do not last for long. Also FF uses too many memory of your PC and this slows down your computer..
