    Help!
    I recently had PC in shop to have malware etc. removed.
    Ever since, it hangs for about 5 min. before shut down &
    all of my microsoft works documents & program are corrupted.
    I have never been 1 to download a bunch of stuff so am stumped..
    I know that he added a couple of programs, 1 being SUPER Anti-Spyware which concerns me a bit..
    Oh, & wow, do I have a few items taking up CPU storge in my windows taska manager such as..
    Javaw which takes about 90%
    Speaking of, should I have 8 instances running under svchost.exe???

    Maybe I am crazy but your shop does malware removal and you are concerned about Superantispyware? It probably is the best product on the market today for spyware so how can you do spyware removal professionally and not know that?

    Who said I remove spyware professionally? I took it into the shop because a friend had gotten a bunch of cr*p on it..
    I thought that the program was fine, just concerned with it slowing my machine down so keep your comments to yurself unless you have any advice!
    Thank you!

    Well maybe I misunderstood your poor grammar, afterall we have the same "eloquent command of language" in the White House so I guess it's ok now.

    Have you tried the files on another pc with Ms Works on it to see if they can be read?
    Have you tried reinstalling Ms Works on the problem pc to make sure the program is not what is corrupted?

    If you want help, your attitude will prevent that. Being polite instead of calling someone names will work.:(
