Hello,
As you can see by the name....i'm completely new to pc administration.
Can you help.....? When I log off 3 programs need to be shut down by the 'end now' button (nscntrl.exe, msdmxm.exe and ctfmon.exe).
Can i fix these as i think they are causing the problems i'm experiencing when browsing and simply flicking for file to file on my HD. When everything is up and running I open up task manager and svchost.exe SYSTEM is running at 98% CPU usage. Please help as i've tried adaware 6 and deleted all the stuff that comes up with, but to no avail.

Rgds, Nick :cry:

ctfmon.exe info <- This is a valid MS Office component, although not critical

nscntrl.exe info <- This is component of a trojan!!

msdmxm.exe <- From what I've read, an "adult services" dialer; it should go

Please read through the posts in our Security forum for information on detection and removal of trojans, spyware, etc.
