OS:Vista Home Premium 64-bit service pack 2
AV and firewall: Norton 360

I coudln't access task manager, and I didn't have administrative persmissions to access the registry, so I scanned my system with malwarebytes, it removed two things, included in the log.

Now I ran a full system scan with Norton 360 in safe mode. It only found tracking cookies.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
