So, I recently installed F-secure Client Security 6.03 anti-virus program on my desktop pc. Since then a file called Fssm32.exe which is associated with the anti-virus program has been devouring all of my system resources and my computer has been lagging horribly. Now this probably shouldn't be the case seeing as how I'm using a system with an AMD athlon 3800+ processor and 1 mb of 2 ghz ram.

Now, i would just delete F-Secure and install a different anti-virus program but am somewhat reluctant to do so after having just paid for the darn program. Also, I did a little research and found that other individuals were having this problem and their issues were resolved through working with one of the staff members. So, i'm pretty confident that this issue can be resolved with a little help...

I should probably also note that i'm quite sure that my system is not running at anywhere near its optimal performance level. I don't know whats going on specifically with it, but I'm pretty sure that it could use a little bit of a clean up. So, any help resolving this issue with fssm32.exe and perhaps bringing my pc back up to speed would be greatly appreciated.


Now, here's my Logfile:
