Hi. I have Windows XP. I don't know what happened but my Task Manager is different and I am not sure that this is a problem or not. Under "Processes" there is no longer anything next to the process, like System, Network, my name, etc. Under User name, nothing, used to be my name. In "View" under columns, the "Image Name" is greyed out. Back to the tabs, under Users..there is now nothing but used to have me listed there.
If I have to end a process now, am having a bit of a problem at times, determining what is ok and not, if I am unsure, alot I know not to touch. This happened after I downloaded a new Anti-Virus program, AVAST, and uninstalled the Norton Anti-virus I had.
Any clue as to what happened? Why? And mostly, how to fix this? I have done restores, but now my System Restore will not restore, has restore points but says my system cannot be restored and to try another date. I cannot restore from the uninstall of Norton and after. And...my system used to start up very fast, now it takes about 3 minutes for the desktop icons to start popping up.
Do I have to do a Repair/Reinstall to fix this? I wish I knew what happened as I don't want to have it happen again...my system was running smooth before all this happened, no complaints.
Thank you for any and all help...very much appreciated!!
