hi guys, i want to say thanks again for

removing "spy sheriff"for me last november,you saved

all my personal data from ruin.my problem

is,when i go into standby through the start

menu it will come out (mouse or keyboard

movement) ok.but then i cant connect to the

internet or load any applications? when i open

the browser it shows a white screen with the

hourglass mouse pointer icon. if i start any

programs the interface will load but

not function,and even loading a notepad

document will recieve the message"WINDOWS



program windows will freeze and not close(some

will others wont leaving a fragmented screen

on the desktop) with task manager saying "not

responding". even in control panel "add

remove programs" freezes with the window

saying "wait while list is being populated".

the only way is to power off with the pc tower

button and power on, then it reboots and

everything is ok, if i power on/off or restart

trough the start menu i have no problems at

all, standby appears to be the issue.i ran

updated versions of ad-aware se, spybot

sd,ewido and my norton anti virus . they

removed some stuff and came up clean when i

used them again.could it be a spy/maleware

issue? if so ill follow your guidelines and

post a hijack log accordingly.any help on

this would be greatly appreciated.....thnx sincerly,
