    I'm new to this site but not totally new to computers, I have been having lots of weird things happening with my computer of late. first I can't multitask three windows come up and I loose my Internet connection or page sometimes I may get to four if very lucky five window's. second the mouse or courser moves on it's own why I don't know, I'm trying to go left and the mouse suddenly wants to go right sometimes to the top. but what gets me most is the constant message "this computer has performed an illegal operation" today it had more "if this problem persists please notify your system vendor" I click on OK and a smaller gray box comes up stating that an error has occurred something about run time and/or improper operation and the window will close and all functions will stop. this is when I loose internet connection. Even weirder is I was able to use yahoo and msn IM's no problem.
    What I would like to know is, what is the best spy ware program to use and how do I know there is no Trojan virus with it?? I'm at a total loss and can't afford $50 an hour for a technician to tell me I need a new computer.
    Thank you for any and all help or info.

    Most techs here recommend both Ad-Aware SE and Spybot ... both are free.

    Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.04: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html

    Don't have the SB link handy, but it will be easy to find on the MajorGeeks site.
