Thank you for the quick reply.
I tried right clicking on a process and then going to services as instucted but nothing is highlighted. Is there something I'm not doing?
Just some bckground info- before I did the clean install of windows 7 I was plagued by a browser redirection issue. So I decided to purchase windows 7 since I would get 6 months of tech support included.
What happens is about 12 to 24 hrs after the installation is complete my system becomes slow, with a considerable amount of cpu space consumed either constantly or it peaks and then drops to almost nothhing.
Is there any concern about my usb wireless mouse connection and rootkits, worms, etc? My Physical Memory value stays constant at 1130 MB.
I know I was hacked prior to my clean install but was unable to determine what malware was deposited in 4 files that were open to sharing, unbeknowst to me.
Is there more descriptive detail I might provide or a scan to detect rootkits?
I ran a scan with the Secunia PSI after I updated my touchpad driver and several alerts were issued about Internet explorer 8.x, Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) 6.x -that needed attention,Sun Java JRE 1.6x/6.x, and Microsoft .Net Framework 3.x .
All but the XML Core services were listed as "no further action needed- detected as being patched.
Should I be concerned?
