Hi all, first post, horray I guess... or maybe not.
Anyway, this morning when I started up my computer everything seemed normal until I noticed that the hourglass symbol wouldn't go away after my programs loaded. Then when I went to open the start menu, it came up but I couldn't clilck a shortcut or get a response from anything else, the whole menu was frozen. I tried a restart when the same results.
So here is my only clue, the third time I restarted I found that if I open something quickly (within the first ten seconds or so) it will work. I was able to open Task manager and it shows that SSU.EXE keeps opening again and again and again and again. Last time I checked it had a couple hundred instances open. I could not close them, that is I could try but they wouldn't actually close. I know ssu.exe is related to my Webroot SpySweeper program, but....
Please let me know if you have any suggestions, I'm off to try safe mode and maybe uninstalling Spy Sweeper.
