Look here's how it is I've been posting my problem for two months now yet nobody, not a soul wants to give me a hand :flowers: so now that I'm a little more desperate can anybody give me a hand so long as you seem to know more about my problem than I do.
I know this may sound a little flippant but I'm not annoyed, I know the helpers on this site are under tight schedule so if anybody knows anything about my problem, please feel free to advise me :thumbsup: Thanks.

Now the problem that I do have is this... Every few minutes my McAfee 2010 security suite disables real-time scanning I'll re-enable it and after about a minute it will disable itself again. This is causing alarming pop-up boxes which is also slowing my computer. I'm not sure whats causing it but it seems like malware and I know now that McAfee is a rubbish software, however, I've already bought it now and I can't give it back. Is it natural for McShield.exe to be using roughly 120,000k of memory?

Now the next problem I'm having is with my Internet browsers... First I was using firefox and nowadays it seems to crash (a lot), I kept getting those unresponsive script messages. But this also temporarily stopped my laptop from responding to anything. Also is it natural for firefox to be using roughly 140,000k of memory?
This problem seem to be on all my browsers and each browser temporarily crashes rendering my laptop temporarily useless. I've downgraded and updated and uninstalled and reinstalled the browsers but it doesn't seem to change anything.

Once again, Thanks for any help.

Normally I would not make suggestions on someone Else's Malware thread, but since you ASKED, here's 3 things I would do:

1) Follow the instructions of your helper (and ONLY your helper) in removing whatever malware is STILL present.

The next 2 are likely suggestions to be given by your helper AFTER the removal process is completed--

2) Add more RAM: http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.asp...ell&cat=RAM

http://www.microsoft.com/athome/setup/addmemory.aspx

3) LOSE McAfee.

Just my .02 cents.

Edit to add: I am NOT a BC staff person.
