No, you do not need to go "naked" in the wild, but some of the different
programs will take over your machine.
There are also many of things that can upset the operation of ones machines.
Of the things you have listed, I see nothing that should have any affect on
your machine, BUT, I have not used AVG for some time. I have read that are
issues with version 8 of AVG, but I do not know first hand.

Do you have a third party firewall running?

One thing you may try and that is to reset the IE options back to the
To do this, with IE open, "Tools, Internet Options" and then the "Advance"
tab. There near the bottom is a "Reset" button, click it and OK yourself
out. Close IE and then restart up IE and you MAY see some improvement.

Oh, I have all the usual goodies, David. There are AVG anti-virus free 8.0,
a firewall (Windows, I think, but I'm not sure about that), Windows Update,
and Windows Defender. I may be missing something, other than my first love,
that is...lo, these many years ago. I wonder where Helen is tonight?

Are you saying that I'm just going to have to live with IE taking the
occasional nap, that I should just let sleeping dogs (now that's a fine word
for IE 7, I'd say) lie? I can't very well do away with my anti-virus and
firewall protection. Can I? That would be rather like refusing a beneficial
flu shot just because I don't like needles. Or something like that. I'll
have to think about this one.

So it goes (Kurt Vonnegut).
