I have two issues but I am unsure if they are related so am posting them together:
1. I have kind of a weird problem going on which I thought might be a virus or something. As fair as I can tell it is only happening with Trillian (messanger) and using Firefox (not IE).
From what I remember the problem started when I installed Trillian a week or so ago. Basically, when I started using Trillian I noticed that some of the text looked weird when I was having conversations with friends - it went all fuzzy and looked like it had collapsed on itself. I thought it was a bit strange and so I uninstalled Trillian to be on the safe side and thought nothing more of it. But then it started happening when I am online - particularly on live journal (I am not sure if this is happening elsewhere or not actually) the text goes all weird like it did in Trillian - but it only seems to be the text in bold. See image:
Does anyone have an idea what might be causing this?
2. In addition I have recently noticed that my computer is lagging - it seems to be slower than usual. I checked my task manager and seem to have a ati2evxx.exe running at start up - I have read this can cause lagging and is not really required for anything much and can be deleted. Could this be connected to the text issues I am having? Can I delete this file from system32 folder or should I just disable it from running at start up and if so could you kindly remind me how I do that as I haven't done it in ages. If i end the process in the task manager it does stop me from having issues with my computer lagging and running slowly.
Any ideas and help would be gratefully welcome.
(note: if you saw my security centre post this text thing was happening before windows stopped recoginising NOD32 so I don't think this is related)
