    Possible virus effect?

      Hello, I am having a problem with squares appearing in the title bar of IE (all versions). I am currently running XP and haved scanned countless times with Mcafee antivirus. So far nothing has shown up. With this event comes random freezes and overall slow performance. Any idea what this could be caused by?

       

      Thank You for your help!

          The squares are some character that is not being displayed correctly - probably quote marks.

          Try this-- Click on Tools --> Options --> Content. Click on the second Advanced button. Make certain "Allow pages to choose their own fonts..." is checked.

           

          Freezes and slow performance if only or especially when viewing content from YouTube could be due to download throttling, a poor or slow connection, too little memory, an underpowered graphics card, faulty video drivers, or something else running on your system soaking up the cpu. There are general PC forums that will help you run diagnostic tests to narrow it down.
