Every few hours my computer becomes slower and slower until it basically stops working. Whenever this happens, I restart it and first ccApp says it is shutting down and then FosterParent says it is shutting down. This only happens when the computer has frozen up. What is FosterParent???
I have searched for fosterparent, foster, parent, etc. in both the registry and on the system. Nothing. I have run AntiVirus, Registry Cleaners and Spyware removal programs on it. Nothing. Please help! I have Win 2000.

Have you run your virus scanner? You might try some online scans

Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
