Have you tried to do a restore of your settings

Question

A few weeks ago while downloading something from the Internet, my antivirus program (McAffee) alerted me that someone was attempting to run a script on my computer. I stopped the action and terminated the download. Ever since then when I'm on the Internet, the wheelmouse acts very sluggish and hesitant when scrolling. It works fine on Windows, just not on IE6. A complete virus scan and spybot remover (AdAware) proved fruitless. I'v also ran the disk cleanup / disk defrag / scandisk without improvement. I have all of the current upgrades for everything. I've attempted to reinstall Windows in the "Safe Mode", no luck. The only thing that I can think of that I didn't do was to uninstall / reinstall IE6. If I do this will I lose any programs? Any recommendations, assistance or suggestions that you might have would be greatly appreciated. P.S. Before, I had all of my folders set to be "Viewed as a Webpage". That setting has also been changed but not by me.
