My son has a laptop and thinks it is running slower lately, locks up with a few pop-ups every now and then. I suggested Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware but they arent picking anything up. I then suggested RKill and when he runs that program he gets these results:

Processes terminated by Rkill or while it was running:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\PIF\{B8E1DD85-8582-4c61-B58F-2F227FCA9A08}\PIFSvc.exe
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\PIF\{B8E1DD85-8582-4c61-B58F-2F227FCA9A08}\PIFSvc.exe
C:\Users\George A. Blanchard\mystuff\rkill.com

Rkill completed on 08/24/2010 at 17:53:46.

Does this indicate a virus or infection? What would be the next step? His laptop has Windows Vista. Thanks guys!

Those look a little odd, but again, it's hard to tell as it does seem that it terminated some Norton processes as well. I can't tell for sure, but he might be infected.
