Recently I turned my pc on and began noticing strange behavior. The first of which was pop-ups from firefox, which I've never had a problem with. Later, upon attempting to start SecondLife, it failed to start. When I checked the list of processes in the Task Manager, not only did I find that apparently SecondLife was on the list, but it also brought up a process called drwtsn32.exe most of the time when attempting to start it. I also noticed quite a few processes that seemed suspicious to me. I run Windows XP and have already run Smitfraudfix to no avail, whereas several times in the past it has taken care of any viruses to a satisfactory extent. There are no error messages of any sort unlike all the problems I've had in the past.
