Help please!

Mainly due to slow shutdowns, browser freeze and hangs, (both I.E. and Firefox) and occasionally not being able to gain Internet access I have been looking through the Services on my PC via MMC.exe and have come across the following service, which I've never seen before.

C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k LocalServiceAndNoImpersonation

Having searched the web it looks like I may have an infected P.C. - I'd appreciate your help and advice.

I have a Dell PC with

Wired Internet Access
Windows 7 Ultimate
Kaspersky Internet Security 2011
SuperantiSpyware (Free)
SpyBot
Malwarebytes Free

I update using Windows and Microsoft Update, and use Secunia and FileHippo to ensure other software is in date.

I run full scans of all at least twice a week, Kaspersky et al haven't picked this up.

I have two drives, C and D and have just installed Ubuntu 10 in it's own partiction in C - Windows also resides on C in its own partition.

Can you help please.

Regards

Frank

C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k LocalServiceAndNoImpersonation = fdrespub.dll (Function Discovery Resource Publication)

Function Discovery Resource Publication

A slow or hanging browser is a common complaint with various causes and possible solutions. What works for one person may not work for another. If you're not finding evidence of malware infection, this issue symptom could be related to too many toolbars, BHOs and add-ons attached your browser. You could try improving performance by disabling or removing those which are unnecessary. Sometimes Add-ons cause Internet Explorer to quit unexpectedly or not perform properly especially if it was poorly designed or was created for an earlier version of Internet Explorer. Incompatible browser extensions and add-ons can also impact system performance and cause compatibility issues such as application hangs (freezing).

Thanks for a fast response. Looked at BlackViper this morning and saw it's a a part of Windows, so big relief.

I'll work my way through your help suggestions - once again, thanks.
