My computer's been extremely slow lately, and I've been getting advert pop-ups randomly whenever I'm on the net. I ran a trendmicro scan and managed to get rid of the pop-up source, but it's back again and now neither trendmicro nor ad-aware can find the problem. I have no idea where it came from.
I've discovered what's been causing my computer to be so slow, though. Trendmicro, ad-aware, and my F-Secure Anti-Virus Client Security program (complete with firewall etc) have managed to find it, but I've noticed that in the Processes tab of the Windows Task Manager, there's a process labelled BOOK REGS MEMO.EXE that's using 99% of my CPU. I checked out the Prefetch folder and there's a file there called BOOK REGS MEMO.EXE-239DFB4D.pf. Deleting it is of no use, since it just comes back when I restart my computer. Shutting down the process makes my computer function normally again, but the process just comes back after a while. Hope someone can help...
