Hello!
I have a couple of problems/questions for you.

1)I've noticed that my computer seems to be running slow lately. yesterday my internet explorer window froze so i pushed control-alt-delete. under "processes" in the windows task manager window there are numerous ".exe" files such as svchost.exe, services.exe, spoolsv.exe and many others. i know that they arent supposed to be there, but what is wrong/how do i make them go away??!! please help!! :)

2)whenever i update my norton antivirus it always checks the files. i keep getting a warning about "killbox" and that it can not be fixed. a couple months ago i was attacked by adware and techguy.com helped me fix it! :) i believe i had to use something with killbox to make the adware go away but i do not remember. anyway, how do i get "killbox" off my desktop?? also, when i was fixing my computer with techguy.com's help i used something to do with vundofix and now have a folder on my desktop. how do i get rid of that?

3)Next, i keep getting this pop up called "backweb security notice". It says that "a new certificate has arrived from "updates from hp" and do you wish to accept this certificate. i always say no, but this pop up keeps coming up every couple of hours. also, within the pop up it says that the "certificate expires march of 2005" haha...please help!!


Thank you to anybody who can help me!!!
