    Win95 IE5

    I notice fro time to time my PC gets really slow particularly while on the Net. I have noticed that when I open up task manager I find 20-30 Wscript instances. What are they? Are they slowing me down?
    Any help Appreciated.
    Cheers,
    Pat

    Hi Dave,
    Thanks for your response, it certainly made me do something about it.
    In the end I could not get onto the Internet, get into Access etc.

    As it turned out, it was a virus called the VBS.HappyTime.A virus. I had to completely scrub my c: drive and reinstall Win 95 and everything else.

    I now have an up to date antivirus software.

    Thanks again for your help.
    Pat
