    Hi,

    Can someone please take a look at the attached document that shows my Windows Task Manager? (2 screen prints, overlap)

    I am wondering if any of these processes are unnecessary or viruses, etc.

    Thanks!

    do you have some problems with the PC - or are you just looking for a sanity check??

    have you tried a virus scan
    Theres online versions from here
    run a virus scan with your own scanner
    If you have a Virus Scnner of your own - first make sure your scanner is fully up-to-date with the latest definitions
    or
    you can Run an online scan from here

    see here http://forums.techguy.org/t110854.html for other online scanners

    System Restore:-

    I would be able to see much easier weith a hjt log rather than a word doc

    go to http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/HijackThis.exe and download 'Hijack This!'.
    make sure it is placed into it's own folder, not a temporary folder. Then doubleclick the Hijackthis.exe.
    Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
    Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
    It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
    so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.
