I am running HP, xp home media Center edition 2005 I have Internet explorer on my computer but have elected to start using Firefox. I have avast antivirus as virus protection, I also have superanitspyware, zone alarm for firewall, i also have xoftspyse. my system seems to be locking up alot when I am on internet. have to reload pages. and also have to start over alot. System seems to be using alot of memory, and every day it goes up, my yop.exe is running 200,000 which is alot and I don't know if that should be that high. Am i running to much stuff on my system or do I have to many of the same programs which are bumping. Or am i infected with something? I need help and would appreciate the help given to me. I have a 9 yr old daughter whom also gets on here and who knows what she gets into sometimes, when your not looking. I have ran my virus, superantispyware and have ran malware and non of them detect anything. my needed help is welcome.

I think you have too much of a good thing tripping over one another

I have avast antivirus as virus protection,

my yop.exe is running 200,000

yop.exe is a process belonging to SBC Yahoo! Online Protection. It is a security suite that helps you make sure your system is completely protected.

As long as the malware are on-demand and not always running in the backround those should be OK
