    Hi, my laptop seems to have problem but it doesnt seem to be infected with anything but just in case I have gone thru the necessary processes and posting the results here for your perusal.

    My problem: After using it for like an hour or two and especially if I am downloading stuff, it stopped allowing me to right-click. Things start to jam...sometimes you cant open the folders (doesnt matter from where you click them be it straight from the desktop icon or from START menu). And even when you can open folder, whatever you click just doesnt open or change. You know it's like not enough RAM to process or something. Which is weird cause that would be the last thing that should happen considering I dont even keep anything on this laptop but instead on external HD. Also I dont have much programs or applications running other than the IE, MSN, Mozy BackUp, McAfee and the downloads which previously I can even have multiple IEs opened with no problem at all. Sometimes it got to the point of I cant even open MSWord and I was using notepad but I couldnt save it coz it said something like not enough memory to perform the action/operation. The agony of not able to right-click is the worst *shakes fist*

    Once I restart my laptop everything seems to work fine again. So could it really be I need to upgrade the RAM?? But it's already 1GB and I dont do much anyway o_O

    So yea just in case there's some virus that McAfee didnt catch, etc, I decided to scan using the methods previously suggested by you guys here (though I realised you guys have now since changed the site and I couldnt find that How To page anymore -.-").

    Below is the detail on my laptop system:

    Here are what I have screencapped during the scanning process of spybot (coz this is the only one where it actually stopped scanning in between everytime popping up with these stuff I have screencapped), not sure whether they are useful but better to have more info??


    And counterspy strangely doesnt allow for any other options (to save log or have any log available) other than exit that application or learn "about" during the safemode session so I screencapped the result:

    Also attaching the pandaactivescan log. Oh the bdscan doesnt allow me to save in txt format but only html format so uhm I cant attach it here?? The only way I can think of is thru MF ^^;;

    Thanks again~
