I think I have a little trouble in my PC. I would be most grateful of help please. Details as follows:
System - HP Compaq
Op system - MS Windows XP
Media Centre Edition
Service Pack 3
AMD 64 processor
2.2Ghz, 960 MB Ram
AntiVirus: Norton Internet Security 2009 - Subscription version
1) PDF docs won't finish opening on being downloaded eg. http://www.irishtimes.com/games/sudoku/files/sudoku2705.pdf
2) IE has gone slow to open pages/tabs
Background to problem: was opening up pages on a franchise opportunity available website from for eg.Inkdepot.com..."further inormation download" open as PDF document. Would only open to max 80%; then on refresh go to 86% and then again on refresdh to 93%. Now leaving the last 5% even on a short document of say 3mb. This never happened before yesterday
Prior to this all was going well. Last full scan was last week with only one low risk tracking cookie found and fixed.
I have done a scan of C drive and systemfiles and nothing showed up.
I also have 12/13 year old boys who also do some IE surfing but are usually good kids when surfing mainly related to music/cell phones/ cars and animals etc....
I also did a bit of reading of similar threads and did a search for rundll32.exe which another poster found on his/her PC. I found 8 of which 5 were created between today and yesterday in C:\Windows\Prefetch folder and another rundll 32 in C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386 which was created on 14/04/08.
Are they harmful and how do I go about finding if I have pests and how do I kill them off please??
Any ideas on how to go about checking for little pests would be great please.
