you mean things like spyware?

go to RUN under start menu

type in: msconfig

go to the very right tab on the top.. and choose the selective startup programs you want.. dont screw around if you dont know what ur doing.. but you can always log on as safe mode and fix it. :P

i read somewhere that you can open task manager from browser? how do i do this?
i realy need to fix my computer... msconfig has everything that windows doesnt need, so it must not be showing everything...

it's also messing with games that connect to internet... cant download patch for starcraft, can't download updates with steam, ect.

the high ram programs are things like 3d editers, stuff thats normaly not bad... i have a few of em i just had to minimize cause they won't stop opening...

sasser is a negitive

make sure you run your spyware scans and virus scans for that stuff, sounds like spyware or a virus to me.

Ok, can you do an overall scan, which will show Virus, Adware,Spyware,Hackers,Dialers.?

You can use a free one called Active scan at www.pandasoftware.com/activescan.

If you are the admin it looks like youve got some spyware of a virus. i had this once and couldnt use avg, word and stuff like that, i went on the mcafee website and they closed the browser down, try starting in safe mode without being connected to the web, Thats all i can think of apart from re installing windows. It looks like you had no protection
