Hi joejobs!

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Hi Fenor.

ran hijackthis, combofix, and WinPFind
No malware.

I suspect it can be related to an error message that appears once every so often during shutdown, but disappears too
quickly for me to be able to read the error message.

I also have telephony companies showing connected to my ports with netstat.
