I have been having some hassles lately with my laptop running slow, taking a long time on startup and shutdown, and other problems which have caused shutdown and disc check to run. I have run my anti-virals, disc cleanup, defrg's, etc, and not a lot seems to have improved. So today I opened my task anager and decided to check all the running processes against Bleeping's database. To my absolute horror, I have discovered about 55 processes running and only about half or less could be verified as supposed to be there. There were quite a few that had no info on Bleeping's database and a hell of a lot that I found to be a mix of trojans, worms, hijackers, etc.
What do I do now? I am not a very computer savvy person, hating to do just about anything that I don't have step-by-step instructions for and always worried I might do something disastrous. I thought I had taken good care to keep my computer clean, running regular virus scans etc, and I have AntiVir as my active realtime guard. Not only do I not know how these headache makers got on to my computer, I have no idea how to get rid of them.
PLEASE somebody, help me.
