I would be downloading and running Ad-Aware and Spybots Search & Destroy, two of the best malware/spyware scanning programs out there. Just do the web update to get current reference first.
I downloaded both of these, and though they did show up a bunch a spyware.... that was not the problem. I THINK that WSup.exe was a virus of some kind (that may have taken over the other program), and when I deleted it and the other program that 'didn't look right' (they were labeled as .exe files but 'looked' like i.e. pages) WToolsA.exe (still don't know if that was supposed to be there or not) the problem went away. Now, we are having a couple of problems now, but it's more of a I click on a link and it doesn't open a new window like it used to. I don't know if this is because of what I deleted or if I still have some setting wrong.
And, and just for any one actually keeping track, I am aware of what normal CPU usage is like, and what I saw WAS NOT normal CPU usage; one, normal usage DOES NOT jump around (the way it seemed to be doing here) and two, as soon as I even deactivated those particular programs, the CPU usage went back to normal levels. I may not be totally techie, but I know a thing or two, and what ever the problem was, it was definately not normal computer behaviour. Any one with any idea on the links not being clickable and going through, I would appreciate help....bf is getting a bit p'o'd :evil: that he can't click through on some of his porn sites. (Oh, & just in case anyone was wondering, yes, that picture is really me.) Thanks.
Bless & blessed be,
