This week I noticed three random things occuring on PC w/ XP:

Yahoo website splash page not showing current day's events. For one of my email accts. I use Mozilla Thunderbird and it shows me on bottom bar (where clock is which has correct time/day) that there are i.e. 6 new messages but there is nothing coming up in my in-box. When I go online Windows Installer keeps trying to install my MS Office 2000. I ran various applications (Trend Micro Housecall [0 threats], Eusing [147 problems, fixed], MalwareBytes [0 problems], Stinger [0 problems], however none of these were run in SafeMode. I then ran Avast in SafeMode and it found the following threat: “Win32:Agent-AMXO (Trj)” D:\I386\Apps\App20411\scr\Spy_Install_HPPre.exe (I quarantined this). My D drive is a backup drive and honestly this is the first time I thought to check/scan this drive. My computer has been running extremely slow when online and when I go into Windows Task Mgr. I have two listings for iexplore.exe when only one occurance of IE is running.
