Hello and thank you in advance for your assistance.
A week ago, I noticed that my PC was suddenly performing drastically slower than normal and my hard drive was active 10x more than usual. So I updated my virus & malware scanners, restarted in safe mode, and ran Ccleaner, ATF cleaner, McAfee virus scan, SuperAntiSpyware, and Malwarebytes. None of the scanners revealed anything suspicious. But, when I restarted the PC in normal mode, the sluggishness persisted.
Also, I use Zone Alarm as my firewall and I've been getting an alert that I've never had before that reads, "Macrovision Software Manager Agent is trying to access the Internet":
Destination IP: 127.0.0.1:Port 1809 ***(and the port number changes with each request for internet access)***
Oh yea... I'm running Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 (build 2600) with automatic updates on. And McAfee VirusScan Version 99.9.99 with Realtime File Scanning On.
Thank you for your time.
