I am starting to think I have a virus/malware. My puter has been slowing down and acting weird lately. I have post on another forum about hijack this (which won't play right) which I am waiting patiently for a reply,

My computer keeps loosing its connection to the internet. For the most part, I just hit connect to, select my home wireless selection, and am good to go again. This time, just for fun, I wanted to see what else was there. At the very bottom of the list is a selection showing two green bars, called Drought house. a security enabled network. Is this my threat?

ometimes my volume selector disapppears from my task tray, sometimes I can't see programs in "all program" that I know are there....

Using task manager, I have watched my physical memory go from 55 to 100 in increments over a a few minutes and never come down.

I cant run back up, there are problems.... and I cant play bubble shooter from windows explorer, but I can from both firefox and google chrome.

Standing by to hear it it is just me having done something Stupid in settings, or if l may need an intervention

My other post is about hijack this, and I am NOT trying to jump the queue. But I thought it important that any expert know that I have been inquiring on a seperate issue, that I suspect may not be a seperate issue after all.

Thank you
