    Hi

    I am no longer able to run spyware scans since my computer freezes half-way through the scan. Ad-aware SE 2007, Spybot Search and Destroy v1.5.2 and Spyware Terminator all freeze during the scanning process. At first I can still move my mouse and it just looks like 100% of the systems resources are being used and slowing down my computer, but then after 20 seconds or so the mouse and the whole computer freezes and I need to push restart. When using all three spyware scanning programs, the scan never freezes on the same file. It just seems to be the scanning process that causes the freeze. Interestingly, I can run a Norton Antivrus 2007 scan to the end which never detects any threats. I think something nasty has got in. Please help!

    My computer specs are:
    AMD Athlon 3200+ 2GHz
    1GB DDR RAM
    80GB Hard drive
    NVidia GeForce 7300 GT Graphics Card

    Windows XP SP2
