The last thing I can remember doing before this current problem occured was running spybot. I ran the program and removed the suspect files. Now when my computer sits idle over night, when I try to use it in the morning, everything except outlook express is hung. When I hit Ctrl/Alt/Del nothing happens and all I can do to regain access it shut the computer down using the power button and let it reboot. Can anyone give me some direction to follow to trouble shoot this problem. Thank you

I have the same problem, when my machine sits idle it locks everything up even though with no apps running and I have to reboot. Very annoying as it happens 3 or 4 times a day. Did you get anywhere with this ?

Do me a favor - run HJT (from my signature) and post the log file, sounds like it's something spybot won't see, this will find everything that isn't Microsoft or likewise signed differences in your system, and tell you what they are, giving you an option to fix them..

WARNING - If you don't have a good understanding of this program - do not attempt to use it to fix things - just get the log, and post it, someone with experience should be able to help you and tell you what to tick and what to leave alone.
