My computer started acting sluggish about a week ago and locking up occasionally. I am not that computer savy but I have noticed several odds things. There are several files in my temporary internet file that I can not delete, several gifs and several jscript files. I have tried in safe mode and tried flushing the dns with the ipconfig /flushdns command in run. Also, I have noticed that in McAfee in my firewall setting that in the Attack Detection part that all the detects are set to NO, I can't imagine that they were all set to NO. Also, my computer has tons of services running when I checked in msconfig and when I click on the Selective Startup and came back only several services were running, which may be normal but the ones that were running seemed to be ones if someone had your computer hijacked. The two that stood out to me was DCOM Server Process Launcher and the Remote Procedure Call.... maybe that is what it should of been, just am not sure. Is there a way for me to get my computer secure and not have this feeling that someone is remotely looking at all my data on my computer? Any help or thoughts would be very much appreciated.
