Q. I don't think there's an update for my driver, but how can I be sure? Where do I get that info from and where do I check?
A. Rather hold on this right now.
Q. So those things aren't normal? When you move a window across the screen, it looks perfectly clear to you?
A. No, it's not normal. All Windows when I moved them in Win 98 were normal.
Q. How do I check how many process I have running after bootup into Windows?
A. Start/Run and type in msconfig. Click OK. See how to use Msconfig
for additional info.
Also, a side note: The fan on my laptop turns on and off constantly. 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off, even when things are at idle (with only Firefox and OE open) and the CPU at 98/99 for system idle process. Thread on this is here:http://www.geekstogo...ve-t149727.html
This should be taken care of in the original thread. Do you have Everest Home Edition
? Or http://www.softpedia.../SpeedFan.shtml
. Either one of these free utilities should help you find the info you want. Be nice to know what the temps and fan speeds are.
Don't think it's malware. I've got AVG Free, ZoneAlarm Free, Spybot and Ad-Aware, and all seem clear.
All these apps are good in and of themselves, but not all will catch Malware. Our Malware forum
has the best techs to ensure you are clean. I only hesitate to send you there now, because they are very busy and I'm not satisfied you have a Malware problem yet. Feel free to go there if it will set your mind at ease as I've been wrong before.
