It's nice to know my computer is clean, but unfortunately the problem hasn't gone away. I turn on the computer, Shaw Secure (powered by F-Secure) starts automagically, but a red X appears over the icon with a message that the Virus/Spyware portion is not functioning properly. The X disappears after a few minutes and things seem to be normal. However, the computer is very slow and seems to be running something all the time. When I go into Task Manager and check the processes tab, a file called fssm32.exe is taking up massive amounts of my CPU usage. It stops after a time, but starts up again at what seems to be random intervals as long as the computer is on, slowing the browser to the point of being painful.
As I said in my last post to Tal, I'm going to unintall and reinstall Shaw Secure to see if that helps with the problem, but if anyone out there knows anything about shy this is happening and what to do to get rid of it, I'd sure like to hear about it. And I know there are several others that would like to know as well - I've seen similar topics posted.
