Hi,

I've been having problems accessing the internet over recent weeks, either because IE starts running slowly or it simply crashes altogether. I am able to actually connect, but it's difficult to get to view.

I've noticed that I have fssm32.exe running in the background, and more often than not it has the highest memory usage and CPU. I've done a bit of a search and see that quite a few other people have had similar problems. I'm not sure if it is related, but I have also uninstalled MSN Messenger as any attempt to use this would also cause my PC to crash. I was previously running Firefox, but I uninstalled it as I thought perphaps this was causing the problem, but seemingly not. I am currently using IE v7 and I have F-Secure 2008 installed on Windows XP.

It appears from my search that the best thing for me to do is run HijackThis and attach the log file results, which I have done. If anyone can see any irregularities and offer any help, I'd be most grateful. Thanks in advance, and please let me know if there's any other info I need to provide.

Greg
