    So I have been at school, and when I got back I set up my computer and have been using it, but tonight mine was off so I wne to my parents computer. It is an older comp (933 mhz P3) so I thought is running slower is not that big of a deal, but is seems to get slower and slower. So I looked a the running processes and most of them are in caps... I know on mine they are not.

    What is causing this?

    should I be worried? if so what do I have to do to fix it. they have some important files on there (also backed up)

    please get back soon

    thanks

    I did put those on a long time ago. except spywareblaster

    so far I have ran ad-aware (a few things nothing serious), then I did spy-bot I got some weird things (some were red and others were another color don't remember) selected all. All but 3 were taken off.

    have not run AVG yet but going to very soon

    I also found out that there are 40!!!! windows updates that they need to do. I did go to microsoft and did updates, but all failed. Right now I am in the process of downloading them individually from microsoft and installing them

    Still none of the processes have changed from caps to lower case. So if they are in Caps there is something wrong with that processes?

    thanks

    I tried to do the scan, but after the 14th step it said there was an error. there were 4 common reasons why it does it and I did not fall into any of those situations.

    while getting the windows updates, 2 showed up on the list but I could not find them on microsofts web site
    KB905474, KB904706

    I know I did not miss write them b/c I copied it twice from the screen (2nd time I was making sure those were in but 4 more showed up)

    so far I have gotten 42 updates, and 2 will not go. What gets me mad with this also is that I can't just use the update part. It ALWAYS FAILS for all of the downloads.


    I just got it to do a full scan(mypccenter.com) , but there is no info. It says I have 0Mb or RAM installed.

    Well it is really late here.
    any info why the processes are in caps, and how to get them back would be great. I did see iexplorer.exe is not in caps any more, but that is the only one.

    With these problems and the only way to see what is infecting the computer is to HijackThis the computer.

    To download HJTsetup.exe To Download HijackThis go to the following: http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item5
    Filename = 1137518044HJTsetup.exe
    Save the file to your desktop.
    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
    Open a TechSupportGuy forum Reply window for this thread, to have ready to paste the Hijackthis log into. Click once to place the typing cursor in the reply window.
    At the top of your TSG/browser window, hit Edit then Paste
    You should see your copied Hijackthis log appear in the reply space....then, submit the reply
    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
