Hello, I'm new here and I don't know if anyone can help, but I have a problem with my computer. I have Windows Vista, and also Verizon Anti-Spyware. As werid as this sound every time I see the black binoculars in the bottom right hand of my screen, spyware scan in progress the computer freezes up. Ctrl + Alt + Delete doesn't do anything. So I have to reboot my computer manually. Thanks :)
