Hello,

My Machine is running like mud and I've noticed well over two doan instances of "Default IME" in my running processes. Aswell, there are 8-10 instances of "M"

I'm not familiar with either of these critters and I'm wondering if someone would give me some insight.

Thanks,

s

I'm not to clear on all you are saying but, I know can sometimes be a keylogger. It would be handy to know your Operating system. Also what application is telling you of this.

Please scan your Pc with this and post back a scan log.

Download Attribune's ATF Cleaner and then SUPERAntiSpyware, Free Home Version. Save both to desktop ..
DO NOT run yet.
Open SUPER from icon and install and Update it
Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
Close browsers before scanning.
Scan for tracking cookies.
Terminate memory threats before quarantining
.
Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program. DO NOT run yet.

Now reboot into Safe Mode: How to enter safe mode(XP)
Using the F8 Method
Restart your computer.
When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.


Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox or Opers browser click that browser at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.

Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

NOW Scan with SUPER
Open from the desktop icon or the program Files list
On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
Perform a Complete scan. After scan,Verify they are all checked.
Click OK on the summary screen to quarantine all found items.
If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.

To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log.
A text file will open in your default text editor.
Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
Click Close to exit the program.

Please ask any needed questions,post log and Let us know how the PC is running now.

hi boopme,

thanks again for offering to help. i realized today that my problem started happening after a recent upgrade of microsoft's live messenger or whatever it's called, so i used to system restore to go back a day before i got it and solved my problem. not sure why something coming out of microsoft would be such a dog but then again we're all watching the crap going on with vista.


meanwhile it was a good prompt to me to burn 8-10 dvd's worth of stuff off of this computer in case my little world falls apart.

thanks
sedg
