I have a couple things in my startup list that I am a little worried about. These concerns would be: csrss.exe, winlogon.exe and atieclxx.exe. I'm really bad with computers and was seeking some insight or quite possibly a lot of help. A few months back I was quite positive my computer was infected. I tried to fix things on my own and in a quick manner due to a situation I was in with school. I realize that this may not have been the brightest idea. I ended up "resetting to factory settings" thinking it would be the solution. I'm aware that this conclusion of mine was not the definite solution to ending everything. So, I'm not sure if this stems back to that ordeal or if its completely new but I thought I would add my past history. I haven't had any visible problems or warnings of infection but since my last scare Ive been very paranoid in checking the startup and looking for suspicious activity. These processes seems to be abnormal and after checking the startup list database provided on this website, I became a bit worried. My laptop doesnt want to allow me to eject my external hard drive saying that it is currently in use but I shut down all programs and I received the same message. (This device is currently in use. Close any programs or windows that might be using the device, then try again.) At first I thought the infection may have transferred over through the external which contains files that were originally from my last scare. Not too sure. My laptop is a HP Pavilion dv7-4053cl entertainment notebook, product #WQ867UA #ABA.
Thank you, looking forward to a response with great appreciation. ^-^
