I am having some general running issues with my computer. It has been running extremely slow when multiple programs are running. I am having problems with a right click menu drop down being blank and having to scroll over the box in order to make the link visible. I know that I have never defragged this computer and plan on doing that this evening. What I'm wondering is if my memory is being over exerted... My spyware has also encountered a trojan but I have yet to locate it in McAfee. I downloaded the recommended programs by your site and found nothing at all, other than 180Solutions.zangosearch. Some of these running issues started after I installed Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0. Some of the problems were there before hand, but noticably more after installing Adobe. Should I be upgrading my RAM as well, my sytem currently has 512MB, and I'm sure that is being stretched out to the max while running most of the programs that I do. Any information or help with resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time. :whistling:

Ouch, looks like your badly infected.
