Nor have I ever had it. Ever.
But when I go to the process list in Task Manager, it says the process, winword.exe is running. And it's a powerful little bugger. It will take up anywhere from 0-48% of my cpu, and 1,000 - 12,000 K of my memory.
Which, I suspect, is the reason for my computer's severe lags, especially since I normally only have Internet Explorer open. >_<
I have SpySweeper and McAfee VirusScan, neither of which find any problem with it. The computer claims that the winword.exe file is in C:\WINDOWS\system32, but alas, it's not there. It's not a hidden file, either.
I'm at the end of my rope here. Does anyone know anything about this. Because apparently, no one else does.
Thank you very much in advance.
