I been looking through my computer today since it was running slower then before so I did a virus can found 3 trojens and thats it. I got rid of them and then went to system start up area and found a software called dmdri.exe and i dont know if its a virus or not. I never saw that name before and anti-virus doesnt pick it up. If anyone can help me find out if its a virus I would be most happy.

It might be spyware. What anti-spyware applications are you using?

Go to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com
In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the dmdri.exe file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.
Post back with the results of the file analysis.

You should not be using more than one anti-virus program due to conflicts that can arise when both are running in real-time mode simultaneously. Anti-virus software componets insert themselves into the operating systems core and using more than one can cause instability, crash your computer, slow performance and waste system resources. When actively running in the background while connected to the Internet, they both may try to update their defintion databases are the same time. As the programs compete for resources required to download the necessary files this often can result in sluggish system performance or unresponsive behavior.

Each anti-virus will often interpret the activity of the other as a virus and there is a greater chance of them alerting you to "False Positives". If one finds a virus and then the other also finds the same virus, both programs will be competing over exclusive rights on dealing with that virus. Each anti-virus will attempt to seize the offending file and quarantine it. If one finds and quarantines the file before the other one does, then you encounter the problem of both wanting to scan each other's zipped or archived files and each reporting the other's quarantined contents. This can lead to a repetivite cycle of endless alerts that continually warn you that a virus has been found. Deciding which anti-virus solution to remove is your choice. Be aware that you may lose your subscription to that anti-virus program's virus definitions once you uninstall that software.
