Hi folks

Here is the problem. Had a problem about 2 weeks ago and got help from PCForum. They had me come to this site for a program.

Computer worked for a few days and started slowing down. When trying to open pages in Mozilla, it sometimes will take several minutes.

The more I use the computer the slower it gets. The hard drive is always accessing and the wireless connection is always on (transmitting and receiving. Also, when I close Mozilla, it stays open in task manager and continued to grow. I finally shut it down when it topped 450K of mem. usage. I've never seen it over 150K before.

svshost. exe is open 8 times in task manager.

I have to manually disconnect my wireless to get the light to go off.

Any suggestions as to where to go from here?
