Hi Guys ,,, I hope you can help me with this problem.
I have been freezing up lately while on the internet and when I go to Ctrl alt del to try and reboot. I get a Windows Task Manager Window.
It has a list of things that I have no idea what it means like.
msmsgs.exe.
acrord32.exe
hbsrv.exe.
hpofxmo7.exe
hpostso7.exe
Iexplore.exe
navapsvc.exe
and there are plenty more.
And when I try to end the process I get a warning window that says : Terminating a process can cause undesired results including loss of data and system instability.
What does all this mean and what can I do to repair the freezing and this window that comes up......:confused:
Thanks
Maj

It's spyware, or BHO's -- browser helper objects. Often when you surf or download, it helps itself to your PC and slows down system resources -- meaning your computer will run slower.

Yes, it's free and many have had good success with it. It tidies up your PC and gets rid of spyware. It doesn't get rid of Norton Antivirus, or MSN IM - things you need. Instead, it gets rid of known spyware or "malware".

I'll post a few screenshots so you can see.

If you choose to download and install it, be sure to "check for updates" and connect. Once the reference file is downloaded, click on "scan now" and next. When the scan is complete click on next and click on each tracking cookie, etc. as shown in the screenshots. Remove them.

There are some other things you can consider trying to prevent hangs or "freezes".
