When I started up my computer today, when I moved the cursor over anything in the start menu, it opened it.
Then things went crazy. I started getting like 60 applications opening. It went real slow, and I thought you guys could help. Everything kinda stopped responding, and I barely got it to open the internet. I also saw a process in my task manager that was called LUALL.EXE. I couldn't end it. Please give me some antiviruses and antispyware suggestions please. I am very worried about my pc. :thumbsup:

Process File: luall.exe
Process Name: Symantec LiveUpdate

luall.exe is a process belonging to the Symantec LiveUpdate utility which keeps your Symantec products up to date. This program is non-essential process to the running of the system, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems.

Note: luall.exe is a process which can also be overwritten by some viruses like for example the Sober.X virus. When contracting this virus and attempting to run your virus update, can in effect re-install the virus even if it was removed prior.

Install the trial version and run it in safe mode. Let it quarantine whatever it finds.

Scan your computer with this online virus scan and let it quarantine whatever it finds.
