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:

http://www.windows-process.info/l/luall_exe.html
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.
