When Windows XP home edition service pack 2 starts, I see rapidhost.exe and realtek.exe processes in Windows Task Manager. However, I was unable to locate the files on the hard drive. Google search listed several links where many of them are saying that these 2 programs are Trojans. My computer is slow, and even though Free AVG antivirus doesn't find any infected items on my computer, I believe that it's infected. Please help. Thank You.
